Spicy Gamer Vibes and the Banality of Karen – Level 6 – Teachers Love Pop Quizzes like a Random Damage Extravaganza

Some people say pop quizzes are abusive. They say they don’t have much of a positive effect. They say, it’s self-indulgent to surprise your students. They say, it’s sickening to mess around like that. They say, you should make things more fair for your class. I don’t really disagree. But I wouldn’t get my mindContinue reading “Spicy Gamer Vibes and the Banality of Karen – Level 6 – Teachers Love Pop Quizzes like a Random Damage Extravaganza”

Spicy Gamer Vibes and the Banality of Karen: Level 5- Lazy Content Recyclers are as Chill as Fans of Emulation (and bank robbers)

There doesn’t seem to be a way to criticize people for “recycling” content. YouTube channels just trying to exploit the algorithm……video game sequels that change hardly anything……news articles that practically steal from somebody else……tracing somebody else’s art…..releasing your own archive of content and branding it as something new and special…it’s kind of gross, right? ButContinue reading “Spicy Gamer Vibes and the Banality of Karen: Level 5- Lazy Content Recyclers are as Chill as Fans of Emulation (and bank robbers)”

The Heart’s Three Infamous Positive Energy Directives #12 – Arresting The Russian Blank Paper Guy Is Far From Insanity, and That’s The Unexplained Phenomenon (International Bonus Track)

Hey, did you read the previous post? Pretty good, right? I’ve never felt so proud about how well I’ve described my past. About the chance I could really hold the wrist of someone about to do something beautifully extreme, and maybe they’d finally stop in place. But you want to know something else? I readContinue reading “The Heart’s Three Infamous Positive Energy Directives #12 – Arresting The Russian Blank Paper Guy Is Far From Insanity, and That’s The Unexplained Phenomenon (International Bonus Track)”

The Heart’s Three Infamous Positive Energy Directives #11 – “Let’s Talk it Over” Proposals are a Person at Their Most Undespicably Hurtful (Prom Night for Situational Fury)

It was a long time ago. I sent a message to someone, saying that we should meet up and talk things over to figure out how we feel about each other. Despite the messaging system being there. It was a very complicated scenario, perhaps one that even a writer of stories would envy in itsContinue reading “The Heart’s Three Infamous Positive Energy Directives #11 – “Let’s Talk it Over” Proposals are a Person at Their Most Undespicably Hurtful (Prom Night for Situational Fury)”

The Heart’s Three Infamous Positive Energy Directives #10- Declaring Himself the Successor of Jeopardy! Was a Good Vibe-Induced Fiasco

We look upon outrageous nefariousness under the guise of glory. Pretentious, pompous politicians. Creators of crooked contests. Dastardly, deadly descendants. That guy from Jeopardy who was supposed to, likeā€¦..take over the show after other people fought to inherit the televisual crown by guest hosting for a bit. People declaring themselves the winner, pretty much, wherever.Continue reading “The Heart’s Three Infamous Positive Energy Directives #10- Declaring Himself the Successor of Jeopardy!

The Heart’s Three Infamous Positive Energy Directives #8 – Shaming Late Holiday Decorations is the Embodiment of Criticism-Immune Adult Energy

I read an article a while back about a woman who left her Christmas trees up too long. She got ostracized, or something. Maybe just a simple teasing? Was it her community, or the internet? I don’t remember. Did she end up actually having COVID-19? Maybe it was Cancer? I don’t remember. It’s not reallyContinue reading “The Heart’s Three Infamous Positive Energy Directives #8 – Shaming Late Holiday Decorations is the Embodiment of Criticism-Immune Adult Energy”

The Heart’s Three Infamous Positive Energy Directives #7 – I Rarely Look Down on The Sore Losers of Big Brother because of How Wickedly Far They Get Pushed

You’ve seen reality, shows, right? Like Big Brother and Survivor? They always form alliances. They’re really exciting and rewarding and miserable affairs. A few of them actually work. Some are incredibly inspiring, if a bit controversial. Like the Cookout. The all-black alliance that formed early on. They really defied the odds and did some brilliantContinue reading “The Heart’s Three Infamous Positive Energy Directives #7 – I Rarely Look Down on The Sore Losers of Big Brother because of How Wickedly Far They Get Pushed”

The Heart’s Three Infamous Positive Energy Directives #6 – I Respect People Because of How Much I Hated Dr. Quandary The Edutainment Game

When I was in fifth grade, we would play edutainment games every week in the computer room. They were meant for kids our age, they weren’t kindergarten games. I wasn’t good at them. I always relied on my partner. The things I could do on the Sega Genesis and things I could do on paperContinue reading “The Heart’s Three Infamous Positive Energy Directives #6 – I Respect People Because of How Much I Hated Dr. Quandary The Edutainment Game”

The Heart’s Three Infamous Positive Energy Directives #5 – In Spain, Bread Can’t Go Just Anywhere (A Sedative for Irresistible Good Manners)

I read an article recently about table manners in the country of Spain. It’s a bit long-winded. I mean, there are a lot of rules. The most interesting ones, to me, were about bread. It’s a bit hard to explain exactly what you’re supposed to do with the bread. Something involving keeping the bread separateContinue reading “The Heart’s Three Infamous Positive Energy Directives #5 – In Spain, Bread Can’t Go Just Anywhere (A Sedative for Irresistible Good Manners)”

The Heart’s Three Infamous Positive Energy Directives #3 – Those Damn Mergers are Messing With My Streaming (A Good Choice Misery Maker)

Funimation’s streaming service is merging with Crunchyroll. I was really enjoying anime a whole lot with Funi. I mean, where else can you marathon dubbed One Piece? Business moves like this are one of the things that’s a real grade-A clusterfuck despite being a huge gift. The new responsibilities of the businesspersons, the new burdensContinue reading “The Heart’s Three Infamous Positive Energy Directives #3 – Those Damn Mergers are Messing With My Streaming (A Good Choice Misery Maker)”
