im really tempted to make a sideblog where i practice the japanese i learn and so i have a place to post about doraemon and gushing over how i want to be like norio wakamoto someday
hooray it is done!
edit: haha i didn’t give a fuck about rendering it and actually rendered it as an avi using widescreen DVCAM codecs. so i have this blur on the finished product that looks like it was filmed on a vhs handicam or something. thats what we call vintage, son B)
i just wrote this big rant and saved it to drafts cause i’m not sure if i like it. but basically the collective half-brain on tumblr has once again missed the mark and pinned “consumerism” as the culprit behind people getting pepper sprayed over xboxes and shot at in parking lots this past Black Friday. overlooking that most of the people throwing the word around probably have no idea what it actually means because lol tumblr is a bunch of twelve year-olds, no, the actual reason for All That Vicious Crazy Black Friday Shit is really wage inequality. if american minimum wages and earnings in general for the massive majority of the population had been adequately adjusted for inflation for the past uhhh forty years (what is history lmao), fewer people would be motivated by massive discounts thanks to an increase in personal wealth more proportionately distributed throughout the population. no need to camp out for that ipad if you can afford one at regular price.
it just really irks me when people compact such complex ideas like this into more easily shared and consumed bite-size phrases and partial thoughts. because jeeze thinking about WHY people do shit is hard work compared to blithely showing your perfunctory disdain for The Unwashed Masses with sweeping generalizations.
Start looking up ISP’s information on Wikipedia and look for their holding companies. T-Mobile is owned and operated by Deutsche Telekom (also reporting failed connections.) Anonnews’s list has the two listed as seperate companies but if there was indeed an order to block, the order would have come down to T-Mo through their parent company DT abroad.
Follow the money on this one, people. It’s really as easy as that. Funny that the same could probably be said for a lot of fucked up current events.

comcast is telling me it doesnt exist on firefox, safari and chrome but it’s the first result on google
oh wow what
Normally when I type things into the bar, it does a google search. This time a Comcast search popped up. And when I clicked the clear link to amerciancensorship.org, it looped me back to this page. Excuse me, Comcast, this is not okay.
WOW. THIS IS NOT AT ALL, IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM, OKAY. THE BILL HASN’T EVEN PASSED YET, YOU CAN’T BE CENSORING US ALREADY. JESUS FUCKING CHRIST.
this isn’t good.
you have got to be fucking kidding me
what the fuck
Usually I don’t go about reblogging this sort of response, but seeing more than a few people having the same problem kinda strikes me as suspicious.
Same for me, too. This is actually scary as fuck.
just accessed at 1AM CST, i’m on a non-comcast ISP. i think we have a DSL line from possibly at&t?
