idk why people pretend theres such a hardline distinction between hardcore gamers and casual gamers like yo sometimes i wanna fuckin shoot aliens in the head for a few hours and sometimes i want to mindlessly swap jewels around like. just because i play the $60 games doesnt mean i also wont play the free shit you know
“some historians think that michelangelo was drawing god in a human brain. very few people knew what one looked like at the time; but michelangelo had dissected cadavers and would have known. it even has the hint of a brain stem. if true this would have been a great “fuck you” to the pope whom he was not friendly with but also would have meant god was in a human brain, or created by man.”
also michelangelo painted a baby angel flipping off the pope
the blond one, you see his right hand? that’s called the fig and it’s an old world european gesture for ‘fuck you” because apparently Pope Juluis II was a total raging asshole and everyone hated him
but nobody ever noticed this little fucker because the ceiling was so high
and then thirty years later they called michelangelo back to paint the wall behind the altar and he wasted no time in painting the gates of hell behind the pope’s chair
what a badass
It amuses me to this day how much Michelangelo hated his job

Not a very good one obviously.
752. Muggleborns taking pictures of themselves with their friends at Hogwarts, then waiting until summer to post them on Tumblr labelled as gifs from an impeccable cosplay.
scotland voted for its independence on thurdsay and overall it was a no vote with only 45% of people voting yes (there are suspicions of vote rigging but that’s a whole other post). in glasgow, however, the results were over 50% yes, which seems to have given the violent unionists an easy target.
glasgow already has a huge problem with violence, particularly sectarianism, which is the root of a lot of the violence happening right now. the orange order, a unionist protestant organisation notorious for violence against catholics, have been ‘celebrating’ their win with violence against supporters of scottish independence as well as catholics or anyone they believe to be catholic.
far-right unionist groups such as britain first and the EDL (the latter of whom are literally neo-nazis) have also taken to the streets and are targeting independence supporters and POC, particularly glasgow’s large muslim community.
there have been reports of stabbings, beatings, buildings being set on fire and even people being set on fire but of course none of these reports have been confirmed because the pro-union media refuse to report that people on their side can do any wrong. the few reports i have seen have shifted the blame onto yes voters.
This ‘Starcoon’ thing was really the absolute bottom of the barrel, even for Kotaku.
It was the pinnacle of generating controversy for clicks. A game about a raccoon in space called ‘Starcoon’ is bitched about Kotaku because the name has the word ‘coon’ in it, presumably because Kotaku is not aware that ‘racoon’ is an animal that exists. So they write several articles and eventually bully the creators into changing the name purely out of controversy they generated for pageviews. They then try to justify it with this shitty article trying to compare it to the redskins, even though the redskins have a racist caricature as their mascot and are clearly named after a slur for indians and Starcoon is about a fucking raccoon in space.
That is Kotaku having a direct, negative effect on other human beings purely so they can pull in pageviews and get ad revenue. It’s the perfect example of why Kotaku is shit, why everyone who writes for them is ignorant at best and human garbage at worst, and why the website along with every other website on the Gawker Media Network need to be expunged from creation and all their contributors blacklisted from every writing for anything ever again.
Bringing this one back.
I was angry.
