People on this website will really mock anti-vaxxers and flat earthers for ignoring scientists and getting their alternative facts from facebook, and then turn around and insist they know more history than historians and more archaeology than archaeologists because they read an unsourced tumblr post once

Someone: The Magnus Archives fandom is dead! 
Me, with my circle of mutuals constantly posting about it, the new fanart that’s still produced regularly, fics that are still uploading, crying about Jonathan Sims: Who the fuck have you been talking to?

Love how this website sees a feral, pathetic man who desperately needs sleep and a therapist and just goes "sexy man, little loser sexy man, little baby sexy loser man, love him"

Do you ever think about pixel art and 8-bit music? Stuff we unironically enjoy today just because it looks and sounds nice?
Do you ever think about how they only exist because, at one point in our technological advancement, we just didn't have the tools, skills or knowledge to make something better?
Idk man, something about how the stuff we make along the way could also be stuff some people might end up loving. Even if we don't think they're good anymore.
Something about just enjoying the things you make now. Instead of constantly worrying about getting better.

"In the opening book of The Histories, Herodotus writes:
"When Atys was king of Lydia in Asia Minor some three thousand years ago, a great scarcity threatened his realm. For a while people accepted their lot without complaining, in the hope that times of plenty would return. But when things failed to get better, the Lydians devised a strange remedy for their problem. The plan adopted against the famine was to engage in games one day so entirely as not to feel any craving for food . . . and the next day to eat and abstain from games. In this way they passed eighteen years, and along the way they invented the dice, knuckle-bones, the ball, and all the games which are common."
- from Reality is Broken, Jane McGonigal
thinking about when i was small, how my mom told me that pipe cleaners were just a tool until people started idly shaping things with them and it grew so popular that they were marketed as crafting materials. and that story about how the original frisbees were disposable pie plates that students flattened to throw. and how when i was a child i had a wooden mancala set with shiny, colorful stones, but on invention it was played with rocks and grooves dug into the dirt. and middle school, paper football and tic-tac-toe and mash and mad libs, games that just need pen and paper. and before that, games of pretend with pirates and princes and masked marauders. how at slumber parties after lights out, we used to whisper storytelling games, i say one sentence and you say the next. and shadow puppets. and the way all the kids in the neighborhood used to divide into teams and throw fallen pine cones at one another. and the floor is lava game, and the quiet game, and the games i play with my coworkers that are just words and retention. and "put a finger down" on the high school bus. and little girls clapping together, and how the first jump-rope was undoubtedly just a length of rope who knows how long ago, and how natural it is to play, how we seek play at every age and with any resources we have and with whatever time we can squeeze it into in a day. i'm not an anthropologist or a psychologist but i think after food and shelter and water and air what comes next is games and stories and laughter. i think that there is nothing -- not sex or fighting or forming unlikely bonds with animals -- there is nothing more human than to play.

Legally I cannot condone this. But illegally I absolutely can.
Solution to the JKR debate.:
If you want to read Harry Potter but don’t want to support her work, you can always pirate every one of her books! Remember kids, it’s always morally correct to pirate nfts, adobe products, nintendo games, and JKR stories! Stay fresh!!

To add to this:
I want indie devs/studios to be comfortable charging me 60+$ for their games. I want them to do this without fear of the tantrum I KNOW gamers will throw at any news of such a thing happening.
But that aside, I'm also okay with handing some studios under AAA banners my cash too. As long as it'll stop them getting sucked dry and destroyed like what EA does with studios. Sometimes all my money does is let 200 people make enough profits so their owners don't decide they're the loss they need to cut. Sometimes all my 60$ does is just let these struggling people keep their jobs and benefits. And that'll do for now. Until the people in these jobs figure out how to fix the shit fest the industry has become. But that's a larger issue than just the gaming industry.
This post isn't because "Capitalism bad" "down with the monarchy". It's because people don't want to pay money for games.
no game has felt worth 60$ since games became 60$

And on that morning, all of Venice awoke to see the tower of everlasting night make its way swiftly across the ocean. Within the tower, they all knew, was the English Magician: Johnathan Strange.
Here we go fellas, I bring you another fandom I'm fixated upon! :D Love me a scruffy academic slowly losing their mind in pursuit of knowledge.
From the book Johnathan Strange And Mr. Norrell by Susana Clarke

Me, earlier today: I'm going to finish character designs for my comic today!
Me, now: I spent the whole night drawing Jonathan Strange, the feral little regency wizard.

I usually just tell myself "I'm taking 2 days/1 week off. No guilt. No thinking about work. Just healing" to let the burnout burn itself out
the crushing guilt of being unproductive vs the exhaustion of being burned out. fight.

I love how Jon Archivist Sims' design is pretty much decided on in the fandom but Mahtin? Everyday I go looking for Martin Blackwood posts and I see a dozen fantastic Mahtins. Like speciating birds, our Mahtin.
