Hmm, I haven't actually watched that much television, so maybe I'm not the best to ask for finding new or interesting series. I've seen some shows, but I can't stand live stuff mostly and just end up sticking to animated artwork. I'm fairly biased to this form as I have been interested in animation and illustration. That's not to say that I hate all live drama, especially since animation takes up a ton of space in live action television drama, just that seeing some so-called "barbarian" living in a dirty hovel looking like a pristinely manicured bougie with a row of "perfect" white teeth smothered in makeup breakes the believability of the film for me. Hand drawn artwork speaks to me with something more symbolic than a reality watercolored by prolific capitalist industries' view of "real" humans. Buuut I think I'm rambling now.. I guess I'm suggesting "Adventure Time" studio Ghibli movies, I haven't seen "Steven Universe" but I hear good things.

If animation is not anyone's thing, maybe "Westworld"? I've seen most of the first season, excluding the last two episodes, or maybe some other popular show..."Black Mirror"?

I think it was when gore/gross porn (goatse, blue waffle, etc) was a meme in office spaces. It was the shock era of memes to surprise people who had only been exposed to a dancing baby or chainmail. After that was mainstream, the internet "going too far for the reason of going too far" was kind of a thing that never stopped the endless shark jumping loop of shock from the internet.

Or maybe it was when the first meme was created by someone paid by corporation to do so, depending on your definition of "jumping the shark"

Maybe this will be the new alt-right hero. Isn't that what they do? Run to the support of misogynists being called out on their shit? Will they come crying about how all those women must be lying?

The horror of predators that hide behind the guise of professionalism is more terrifying than one in plain site; it could go on for this long. I feel so bad for the women who have faced his disgusting abuse.

I haven't seen too many of her videos, but the ones I have seen haven't been too bad. She had a "Tiffany Tumbles" episode recently that touched on the use of the word "trap", but I didn't get the impression that she really would want to be identified with the term because she made a decent argument on why it's problematic. If she used to identify this way, maybe she changed her mind. I almost think this "Tiffany Tumbles" character could be a side of her that she used to be.

She seems to take an anti-alt-right stance, and really enjoys creating somewhat disturbing and creative content. I can't say I like, or agree with, everything she has to say, but overall I have enjoyed her style and wit. Plus, I enjoy seeing a trans person do relatively well in the cess-pool of trans-misogyny known as youtube.

Solidarity with sex workers! It's not fair that so many "activists" put shame on sex-work, when any kind of labor for the capitalists is a form of prostitution. The shutdown of safe spaces for them to organize the work and screen clients is an incredible affront to their livelihood, safety, and families.

Why don't they spend resources on catching nike by pretending to be a child labor sweat shop, and arrest them for taking the bait on a supposedly lucrative deal? Instead of catching poor kids that have nothing by enticing them with stuff from the tyrannical white-supremacist slaver corporations that they are forced to serve. Fucking thug merchants will rob the world, but when any labor livestock attempts to take anything back, they are punished severely.

Prosecutors called Susan Evans to the stand. She works in the state Attorney General's consumer protection division. She testified Meyer called the office just five days before the eviction and had a conversation with her about his complaints against his landlord. However, she was unable to do anything about it.

"Once a court has got involved, we don't take an action," she said.

While Meyer wasn't unpleasant with her, Evans said the conversation stood out for some of the things he said, including his extreme distrust of authority figures in Perry County, with claims of corruption and incest.

At the end of the conversation, Meyer told her he was willing "to go down in a hail of gunfire." Evans said it was unusual, but it wasn't the most outrageous conversation she ever had.

From another article.

So this guy didn't trust the cops or the goverment, and even warned them about what would happen if they came to enforce the "rightful" ownership of the "property". Landlords only have that land because this system raped and pillaged the people who had been living there for 16,000+ years. Landlords don't have the moral justification to send armed capitalist goons to anywhere for any eviction. The people who need evicting are the corrupt land "owners". They are the ones guilty of making this confrontation happen.

I'm usually in the mood for chill dark glitch trip hop (I turn it off if it has any trace of problematic lyrics/clips), but I can get into anything that has radical lyrics.

My "favorite genre" is not a form, but the meaning of the music. I almost never end up listening to country, but I definitely would if it were Anarchist country. A 5 year old hitting pots and pans while repeating "fuck the police" would be music to my ears in comparison to a talented artist singing about how some lady should give into their entitlement of her body, or she'll regret it...

edit: I want to mention a bunch of styles that I can also be in the mood for:

  • Hip-Hop
  • loving that dark 80's retrowave/laborwave style stuff around
  • Punk
  • Metal
  • Acoustic
  • Progressive Rock
  • Disco House
  • Glitch Hop
  • Trip Hop
  • Psytrance
  • Witch House
  • And jamming with friends :)
