We put a crazy amount of work into this one, and I think it’s probably the best thing we’ve made yet! Well, until the next Tissue Box comic anyways
Cheggit awt. It’s gewd smutty kawmix u gais.
is anyone actively talking about this series of tweets [Kanye West] wrote today?
I’m pretty I don’t care what Kanye West has said, or has been reported to have said about the passing of Mandela.
Kanye West has never had the power or influence to imprison or move to execute that man or otherwise jeopardize his family, his nation or his legacy, unlike some of Mandela’s other “wellwishers”.
For once, let’s not let celebrity gossip distract our attention from the people we’re really mad at, okay?
I’d say the only problem with that Lupe Fiasco rant is that while he acknowledges that the “West” isn’t a specific people, it still implies that other people elsewhere somehow got it right. But look at the way Feudal Japan treated its peasantry. Look at the history of civil wars in old China. Look at the history of invasion, conquest, and ethnic cleansing within the Indian subcontinent, all prior to colonization by the West. They may have not been materialistic in the same sense as us, but they sure as hell weren’t any nicer, gentler or more enlightened. The only real difference between the “west” and the rest of the world is that circumstances allowed them to come up with Industrial technology first. If a large nation in any other part of the world had discovered it first I doubt the world would be much different other than a different people being the oppressor.
the “west” is not a place. It’s a mentality based in materialism, leverage, exploitation and greed. Everything Buddha and Jesus warned us about.
The “western” mentality is a global phenomenon … So when I say the “west” I’m not talking about a static coordinate, I’m talking about a portable, remotely update-able, mental disposition.
The “west” is hard wired directly to the Id. It’s sociopathic and all consuming.
I don’t feel anywhere in that rant Lupe is implying that anyone anywhere has hard, fast answers or else he most likely would have mentioned them as examples or alternatives to the “west”. What he’s saying is that the “west” is not any one people or place but the spirit of conquest and imperialism itself.
I think what you’re upset by is that Lupe is implying that imperialism somehow originated in the west and that the rest of the world adopted that mentality from there/them. In which case, I’d agree with you.
China, Japan, Eygpt, and numerous other peoples in Africa and South America were all the “west” before that was even a thing.
However, I’d say that it’s also possible that Lupe is implying that the West is the current reigning champion of Imperialism and global domination. That it has earned a title as the spirit of militarism and exploitation— as in, they might not be the first to do it, but they are currently the best and most advanced in those arts and sciences. Whereas places like North Korea are still stuck in the old, traditional dictatorial approach.
But I’d say that’s more ego than Id talking… since really, black people don’t really focus their ire at Asians and their own historical madness on account of those Asian countries having not participated in the carving up of Africa.
So while even with the detailed explanation, the “west” is still a bit of a misnomer, but it still carries meaning that can be inferred.
I watched em both… but that first episode was pure garbage. I actually fast forwarded through most of it.
Episode 2 was pure magic.
painful, horrifying magic.
You’re looking for the Kyuuketsuki produced by Valkyria Animation.
It was released in 2011/2012.
Episode 2 is where the good stuff is. :3
hope that helps.
Oh right… I guess I’m supposed to draw stuff sometimes, too.
Here’s a few drawchat doodles I did that never got posted featuring Jenny Wakeman and Sarah the Demonfish Princess… who seems to have made a hobby out of food blogging or something. Oy vey…
Did anything in 2013 top this masterpiece?
I’m betting NOPE.
— Already watched that for the first time last night on JMD’s stream. >: 3
So you can kinda thank him for this….
