whatever marginal advantage the racial justice protestors gained from being masked was greatly outweighed by the fact that the racial justice protests were larger than the covid protests by a scale or two of magnitude

last time i tried to do a pop culture thread centered around propaganda messages but that was probably too specific

so you know what just talk about whatever dumb pop culture stuff you want it doesnt need to be highbrow

no spoiler tags allowed those things are really annoying in the finer arts subforums and im assuming we all just want to yell about how our cartoons arent communist enough i dont think anyone really cares about spoilers

how gay is the new she ra show ive heard its like insanely gay but i was also told that korra was a lesbian so im inclined to think that serious articles about childrens cartoons may not be undergoing proper journalistic rigour

achewood never had good art and had a few years of being good and funny before divorce and alcoholism forced took its toll

somehow phil lamarr was convinced that the goblins kickstarter animation was a viable project

what i'm saying is we can easily trick him into believing there's an official MadTV reboot and he'll be all in

Star Wars is fascist, Harry Potter is fascist neo-feudal dreck, selfie-obsession is fascist, British soap-operas are fascist, sci-fi is generally fascist, ironic detachment is fascist, porn is fascist. Masscult under imperialism is inherently fascistic. Sorry to spoil your 'fun'.

also achewood is patriarchal as hell; the only significantly developed woman is Molly and she's just a prop for Roast Beef - rarely if ever does she get an appearance where she isn't either interacting with him directly or else referencing him. at least it was honest about being "a low comic of dudes"

The panel where Teodore kisses Penny is the apex of the strip. Fast Times had the line "Anything is possible in a nice van". Also the Street Roots one busts Mr. Dick up every time he reads it, though that's probably just because he's lived in Portland.
