 News Post: The Hierarchy Posted: Fri, 16 Mar 18:34:00 PST (Tycho)
Tycho: YouTube is Broadcast Television and Twitch is Cable.  Does that sound about right?  Am I close?  I feel like that happened really fast.  YouTube’s true audience is Unilever or whoever the fuck.  Multinational Hydrae bound in circles of salt by public markets.  Twitch is the warping House of Chaos that dances in fire.  You have no idea what kind of angel or devil is going to splup out of some inky hole and currently - currently - that is a market advantage. Having chiddlers is like having an ambulatory weathervane in your house that walks around and…

Tycho: I tried to explain it to Grub Dumpster a couple days ago.  Imagine the moment where you’re trying to push the final point in, say, Numbani.  The sled has turned the corner and the lip is now over the point.  It’s lipping.  Time is out, and it’s only desperate, frenzied roosting on the objective itself that is keeping this balloon in the air. I feel nothing. At least, not compared with him.  There’s something happening over the baseline but you’d need electrodes and probably a grant of some kind to discern it.  I know people who,…

 News Post: Hufflepuff-Puff Pass Posted: Mon, 12 Mar 19:13:00 PST (Tycho)
Tycho: Glabrezu and I watched the trailer for Hogwarts Mystery with… I don’t know what it was with.  We like Harry Potter, but - to leverage grade school-native notation - we don’t like Harry Potter.  But we’re down.  We haven’t left it behind. I understand that they continued to make them, but after the fourth movie I didn’t know what the point in watching them was.  I already knew what was going to happen, so well in fact that when they deviated from it I was mostly just annoyed.  I did like the whole Wrock thing, and I definitely consider…

 News Post: Everything Old Is New Again Posted: Fri, 09 Mar 18:11:00 PST (Tycho)
Tycho: I said before that one of the best ways to determine a person’s politics is what they don’t consider political.  Well, let me put it to you this way.  I don’t consider this comic political. Because of where I live and what I look like, it doesn’t require a lot of imagination to reverse engineer my position on what is often called “the issues.”  Generally speaking I don’t rub your face in it because I don’t know your life, and I don’t assume I’m smarter than everyone else.  I don’t claim a right to demagogue…

 News Post: Toxic Masculinity Posted: Wed, 07 Mar 19:50:00 PST (Tycho)
Tycho: Sending us one code for Super Seducer may be regarded as misfortune; sending two looks like carelessness. This dumb shit has sort of made the rounds, people have made commentary in virtually every medium on it.  I have yet to see a single positive reaction to the “game,” it’s considered either dangerous or ridiculous, a kind of cultural pinata which the attendant throng may reliably strike for candy. We actually tried to play it; there is a human cortex that is drawn toward watching wrecks in slow motion. You… you want to talk to strangers?  A woman is walking…
