@ophiuchus My rent is $460 in Eastern Washington

Presented without comment

I’ve almost entirely given up gaming at this point. Anything more than a few hours a week is a waste of time.

2018-09-16 21:08:20 UTC  

The Majora’s Mask tweet was in response to a hilarious argument between two accounts I follow.

2018-09-16 21:22:10 UTC  

@Jacob that’s breddy good. Mine’s only less because I split it.

2018-09-16 21:35:19 UTC  

@Reinhard Wolff logo v Beardson is the match-up the people are craving

2018-09-16 21:39:58 UTC  

It’s hard to argue video games are better than books

2018-09-16 21:40:07 UTC  

Different categories imo

2018-09-16 21:41:56 UTC  

Well, they’re obviously different categories but what I’m getting at is that video games fall into the category of things that are okay in small amounts but offer no significant benefits, whereas books offer the potential to dramatically alter people for the better.

2018-09-16 21:45:56 UTC  

Or dramatically alter people for the worse if it's an eldritch tome of forbidden knowledge like the Necronomicon or the King in Yellow

2018-09-16 21:53:19 UTC  

I still play RPGs sometimes. For the compelling stories of course. I also enjoy grinding levels while listening to podcasts. But I agree, it is mostly a waste of time.

2018-09-16 22:16:27 UTC  

If video games don't have the power to alter people for the better, I call that the fault of the author and not the medium. Were the studios not run by communist and nihilist swine, I dare say they could rise to the level of great art.

2018-09-16 22:18:23 UTC  

Yeah, I've always felt that Garry's Mod really spoke to the human spirit

Skyrim was the last hurrah and felt like an opera

2018-09-16 22:25:07 UTC  

Skyrim for the Nords!

2018-09-16 22:25:07 UTC  

Found this when the Utah guys and I were flyering yesterday.

2018-09-16 22:31:11 UTC  

PF actually has a good amount of postering on their twitter.

2018-09-16 22:31:59 UTC  

This example has to be at least a couple months old, interesting to see it worn down like that

2018-09-16 22:34:57 UTC  

Yeah, I was surprised to see it. This was right outside of a university so I didn't think any flyer would last that long.

2018-09-16 22:35:27 UTC  

Those PF guys should just join IE.

2018-09-16 22:35:49 UTC  

My sticker outside a high school had been there for like a year

2018-09-16 22:36:02 UTC  

Over a year, I think, actually

2018-09-16 22:36:12 UTC  


2018-09-16 22:43:50 UTC  

They really should. I’ve talked to a couple who probably wouldn’t make it in the application process, though.

2018-09-16 22:47:19 UTC  

Not that I’m any kind of judge of that, considering I haven’t made it the whole way 😂

2018-09-16 22:49:43 UTC  

@NateDahl76 you can tell. The interactions we have had with the PF types have generally resulted in them doing some LARPy thing from what I have heard.

2018-09-16 22:50:08 UTC  

Like taking some creative license to the tip amount on a restaurant tab...

2018-09-16 22:54:34 UTC  

Lol I would imagine

2018-09-16 22:58:58 UTC  

A lot of PF is people who were/would be rejected by IE. I'm sure some could make the cut, but I'm not sure many could abide by our server rules and guidebook

2018-09-16 22:59:23 UTC  

@Sam Anderson I just made the keyframe location of an element of a video I'm working on rn that larpy tip amount just for you. 👌🏻

2018-09-16 23:00:24 UTC  

@Asatru Artist - MD PF activism takes many forms apparently

2018-09-16 23:10:50 UTC  

Every member of PF i have talked to has lauded IE

2018-09-16 23:12:46 UTC  

PF can do their thing, IE does ours. No reason to conflict or overlap. We want similar worlds, different roads. Of course for branding, and a different target demographic, IE needs to behave differently and that's fine.

2018-09-16 23:13:08 UTC  

Their flyers are interesting too. Agreed @Wood-Ape - OK/MN

2018-09-16 23:13:46 UTC  

Same with TRS and stormer book clubs. They appeal to different types of people and make them productive to the extent that they can be.

2018-09-16 23:15:19 UTC  

Fellow travellers

2018-09-16 23:16:33 UTC  

I still think we need to concentrate capital as much as possible. But that doesn’t mean countersignalling ofc

2018-09-16 23:17:11 UTC  

And yeah- their leader designs all the propaganda and stuff. Dude is almost totally out of the spotlight
