Thoughts from the AMEN Pew #59

The week wasn’t bad. It’s spooky season, so I am feeling that. Lets dive right in.

So, I watched a ton of spooky shit this halloween. Nothing will beat Deadstream for holding the place in my heart, but in a close second is Barbarian.

An incredibly well edited, shot, put together piece of schlock. If you have half an interest in watching it, don’t even read the cast. Just go watch it. It works the best without having any idea where the movie is going to go.

I’m not even going to put the trailer here. Watch it if you are interested.

Well it finally happened. Ol Incel Memes has control over everyone’s favorite place to go to hate each other.

First off, I fucking knew he was going to have to buy it. Too good of a deal for everyone involved. The shareholders, employees, and executives get crazy stupid overpaid. Everyone gets parachute deals. Its too good of a deal.

Second, alot of people are freaking about what will happen next. Will he make crypto a central part of the platform? Will the immortan get put back on twitter?

Here’s the correct answer: Who gives a shit.

Whatever twitter was or is, it wont be going forward. Itll be something else. If you think its better or worse, probably has alot to do with how closely aligned you are to Ol Incel Memes’ view of the world.

For me, I expect a slow painful death into crypto hell. But, I’m sure I won’t escape it in the short short term. Lets see how dumb it has to get to fully chase me away. Probably before Ol Incel Memes starts charging Doge for shit.

You know, half of my feed is filled with the latest terrible shit being done by the immortan’s followers. And it happens every day.

So much so that its hard to keep up and easy to get frustrated.

But I want to turn your attention to one piece of pure bullshit that is a mandatory read.

The Federalist, a long time conservative shithole, has published something that is truly terrifying on multiple counts. To the point where, I can’t fucking believe they published it.

Some thoughts on it. Don’t ever call anyone on the left a worrier for nothing anymore. That article supports christian facism, and there is no other way to sugar coat it. The whole piece is discussing the concept of using “big government” to enforce the values that they feel are correct.

This has basically been the thought I had all along. That people like me are going to end up in some sort of re-education camp for the heathens to get you to feel all 1950s WASP-y inside.

The piece also has this weird tear of luddite? It basically argues that conservatives should have shut down the internet (or regulated it) when they had the chance in the 90s. With the concept their being I guess people wouldn’t learn that other ways of living existed?

It is a terrifying season, and I watched a shit pile of horror movies. Nothing is as scary as this. Stare straight into hell. The poet does not avert his eyes.

Plus, they laid their cards on the table. Now, we can actually be prepared and avert this catastrophe.

Now that you are good and terrified. Lets end on a lighter note.

No story here, just. Despite all of this. I managed to have a good week this week. Exercised a bunch. Little man is doing well in school. Things are quiet at the house. All of us are excited for halloween.

And I think thats how you get through the tough times. Find the little joys and take them when you can. Cause you know there is more pain around the corner.

Have a great weekend and a happy halloween. Ill catch you on the flipside.
