I think it's a reference to the autism, and how U is able to hold down a crappy job and go out from time to time with friends, unlike Chris, who believes his autism precludes any of that.

That's funny, I've seen like one episode this season where AJ had any speaking parts at all, and she spent most of that episode hitting on hipsters and trying to act like Rarity.

Besides, Twilight's not been getting much attention lately, either. Nearly all of the episodes this season have been about Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, or Pinkie Pie - the only Twilight episode in recent memory was last week's, where she played second fiddle to the CMC (third if you count how much screentime the Sugarlump Rump Bitches got)

Yeah, back when I was still socially functional enough to actually have a sex life, free condoms were so easy to find - at the university, at any one of the health clinics, even at the local hipster coffee shop - that I don't think I ever paid for a single condom.

At 3 for $5, fuck it, I'll take my chances.

03/02/14, 13:19

I think the ending will be that Rust discovers he was part of the Baptist minister's rape gang, possibly even the ring leader, only he forgot about it because of his blackouts. But then he will discover that one of the children he raped and murdered was actually the Anti-Christ, so by being "evil" he actually killed the Anti-Christ and saved the planet. Then Rust and Marty will get medals from Jesus and everyone goes out for ice cream. The End.

Oh well clop on my face, I just checked into it, and Sister Wendy not only discussed Piss Christ, but her view is quoted prominently on Piss Christ's official Wikipedia page!

"...she regarded the work as not blasphemous but a statement on "what we have done to Christ": that is, the way contemporary society has come to regard Christ and the values he represents.[16]"

Bully for her.

Is her show still on? And what sort of other art does she talk about? Does she ever touch on contemporary artwork? I'd love to hear her take on Piss Christ or one of Hirst's installations!

He does get called out, but it's usually by his partner, and it's usually just Marty saying something to the effect of: "But Rust! Ya jist can't say stuff like that 'round us decent Godfearing redneck types! It ain't PROPER!" Rust gets called out on propriety (an objection which I think we as an audience are trained to discount), instead of being called out on the fact that his streams of pop-philosophy are disjointed, inconsistent, and quite probably wrong.

Granted, Marty has some serious philosophical flaws that are never directly addressed, either - the hypocrisy in the way his behavior (womanizing, roughing up suspects, letting his emotions get him into trouble) does not match up to his stated philosophy of being a straight-laced, morally-guided family man. But I think guys like Marty are so common in our media narratives that audiences don't really NEED any more comment than that; we can all of us pick up on what's wrong with Marty, because we've seen him so many times.

Rust is more sophisticated; he's an anti-hero with the emphasis placed squarely on the anti, but his lines are delivered with so many big words, and with such conviction (to re-purpose a quote from Rust himself: "...he is effective in proportion to the amount of certainty he can project"), that I think many people in the audience who are... let's say, less discerning and less educated than us clever bastards here at poeTV, I think the problems with Rust may go over their head. I've already met a couple people IRL who think Rust is some deeply insightful philosopher, and just skimming the Youtube comments, it looks like there are a lot more.

Anyway, it is a great show, and even Rust is a thoroughly enjoyable character once I get over how much I hate his face. It's no Vikings, but it's making the post-Breaking-Bad TV era a lot more bearable!

Wow, this is great, not what I was expecting at all! She's a little on the goofy side, but she's very passionate and fantastically insightful. I just about lost it when she said "rent boys"... but yeah, that's probably what they were!

I'm surprised Caravaggio isn't a linked tag. I never cared much for Rubens*, but Caravaggio was dead brilliant, and he was such an asshole that I'm sure there's got to be some real lurid biographies out there.


*(Sister Wendy does a pretty good job of rehabilitating him, but I still think Rubens was a weedy company man)

I have that same Fluttershy figurine. :(

Also, Jesus Christ, he's got at least SIX pony dakimakuras, plus a rather glum-looking inflatable alicorn (which he calls a pegasus, for some reason). I hope "99" isn't a reference to his year of birth, because that would him my brother's age, and I really don't want to think about my kid brother getting sucked into a world like this.
True Detective - Rust on backwoods religion
03/02/14, 04:22

Yeah, Rust really gets on my nerves with all his pseudo-intellectual BS. His character is very intense, and his lines are very well delivered, but once you start analysing his rants for content, it quickly becomes clear that it's all gibberish. He's like a community-college Satanist who just smoked a bowl and churned out a Youtube video on his Deep and Freaky Thoughts.

I'm operating under the assumption that this is *intentional*, and the writers really want to drive home the fact that a) Rust is smart and has a lot of potential, but also b) he's a misanthropic burnout with serious emotional issues who isn't nearly as clever as he thinks he is.

Well, yes and no.

As to the "fakeness" of cryptocurrency vis-a-vis fiat, in the theoretical long term, cryptocurrencies actually tend to be more stable and predictable than fiat money. This is because cryptocurrencies usually have fixed caps on the amount of currency units that can be created, and their value cannot be inflated, perpetually and arbitrarily, to suit the interests of a central authority. As a result, cryptocurrencies have scarcity and predictability, which (like currencies backed by gold or silver) makes them a far better reflection of *real* value - that is, the measure of the actual value of a labor force's output - than fiat currency, which is unstable by design, and is based around debt and bubbles of imaginary value. Now, *it could be that imaginary value is a good thing*. Whether bank-sponsored imaginary value really is the key to limitless wealth (and it certainly is, so long as you're one of the 1%), or whether the only true wealth lies in the real value of goods and services produced by the rest of us, that's very much an open question, and it's made a very lively debate for almost a century now! But the decentralized, print-limited value of cryptocurrency is far less "fake" than the perpetually manipulated value of fiat currency.

Cryptocurrencies are also, perhaps counter-intuitively, much more resistant to robbery than fiat currency; while "programming errors" and "hacking" attacks" may indeed pose hypothetical threats to the security of one's cyber-wallet, most cryptocurrencies are set up in such a way that hacking them is extraordinarily costly and difficult, far more difficult than hacking traditional fiat currencies stored electronically. Remember, banking has been digital for decades now, so any criticism of cryptocurrencies on the basis of potential hacking threats, needs to take into account the fact that hackers can, and do, rob people of their digitally-stored fiat currency every single day. What's more, fiat currency, being physical as well as digital, is saddled with a whole host of potential threats that crypotcurrencies will never face: you can lose your dollars by being mugged, by misplacing them, by having your bank burn down, by leaving them in your pants while you're doing laundry, by them being intentionally devalued by a government defaulting on the debts it's accrued while trying to maintain the world's largest military-industrial complex, etc etc etc.


There's only really one valid piece of criticism I've heard so far, and I admit, it is a VERY valid criticism: namely, market confidence. All systems of monetary exchange are only as strong as we think they are; without confidence from the market, any currency is useless. We're seeing this with a lot of cryptocurrencies, and we'll see this with a lot more in the years to come. Now, it bears pointing out that this is an issue that plagues EVERY form of currency, not just newfangled cyber-libertarian e-bucks; plenty of currencies go bust, even our own US economy saw countless prospective currencies flounder to extinction before the venerable dollar took over (the only one of hundreds of stable currencies our ancestors used, now available to us here today). But being able to view cryptocurrencies within the grand framework of historical inevitability doesn't really inspire confidence RIGHT NOW...

... so as much as it pains me to say, until things settle down, I'm firmly with you Luddite skeptics! I'm not about to plunk my life-sazings on Dogecoins when Dogecoins could easily be gone next month. Sorry, Ayn. Caveat investor!

Well that's unfortunate, OZ. But when you say "symphonic metal", what do you mean, precisely? "Symphonic metal" is one of those really broad terms that's used by different people to describe a whole range of bands, many of whom may be nothing alike. For example, I've heard the term used, in different contexts by different people, to describe Trans-Siberian Orchestra, Rhapsody, After Forever, Yngwie, The Gathering, and whatever choral-medieval bullshit Dark Symphonies is limping to the barn with lately, despite the fact that all of these bands are quite different, both in temperament and in style.

Still, Nightwish is pretty much the gold standard by which all other "symphonic" metal bands are measured, so if you don't fancy them, I'm probably not going to be able to change your mind. You're mostly into hippie prog stuff, right? You might like Opeth, Therion, or Ayreon (their Ambeon project is especially Nightwish-y), assuming you haven't heard them already and/or are willing to classify them as "symphonic".


(on a side note: symphonic pop-punk! Now there's an idea!)
