WHY DID IT TAKE ME SO LONG TO DISCOVER AVOCADOS

I’M FROM SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

WHERE PEOPLE DROP OFF GROCERY BAGS FULL OF AVOCADOS ON EVERY FRONT PORCH IN THEIR NEIGHBORHOOD BECAUSE THEY HAVE TOO MANY AVOCADOS IN THEIR BACKYARD

I HAD AN AVOCADO TREE ONCE

THERE WAS A HOUSE IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD THAT WOULD FILL A TRASHCAN WITH AVOCADOS AND PUT THEM OUT FRONT WITH A SIGN SAYING “25¢ EACH OR FREE”

WHAT WAS WRONG WITH ME

"It’s hard for me to materialize things into form. I’m full of regrets, I’ve got poor self-esteem. Every time I start doing something, I get down on myself and quit. I wasn’t a leader when I was young, and I fell into all the wrong things. Eventually I got into doing drugs, then selling drugs, and I ended up going to prison.""How’d it all end?""I was one robbed one night, and learned who did it, so I decided to get back at the guy. I wasn’t really thinking at the time. I was high out of my head, we were listening to Metallica, smoking PCP, and all my friends were yelling at me to do something. So we found the guy and I slashed him with a box cutter and hit him with the shaft of a steering wheel. I went home and told my mother that if the cops come, to tell them I was home all night. Then I took off down Ditmars Boulevard, and after I drove a few miles, cop cars started coming at me from everywhere."

Even though I’ve lead a life as different as possible from this guy, I feel like, well, we’re coming from the same place in our heads.I like HONY because it draws out such relatable human experiences from so far-flung a pool.

Did you know I like Zelda? I like Zelda. I am really excited for the new Zelda game. I am excited for EVERY new Zelda game. Just thinking about Zelda gets me excited. Look at all that Zelda.
Rules:
take a screenshot of your desktop

don’t delete anything
tag 5 more people

Tags aren’t compulsory just FUN INTERNET FUN


Sometimes I forget about cleaning up my desktop because I rarely have my internet window closed ….
Like most of those files are screenshots of amrit and kyle that they didn’t know I was taking and I forgot that I took whoops.
I have a backgrounds folder that changes daily. I pretty much just download any picture that I find pretty and is also large enough. I don’t know where I got this one. It’s nice.
I don’t tag people because I am an internet hipster.

Why #gamergate is important

Fun fact: Morgan Ramsay, founder of the Entertainment Media Counsel, did an objective study of how much of gaming journalism talks about sexism or social justice.
To do this, he downloaded 130,524 articles from 37 RSS feeds of 23 outlets, including The Escapist, Rock Paper Shotgun, CVG, Edge Online, Eurogamer, Gamasutra, Game Informer, GamePolitics, GamesBeat, GamesIndustry International, GameSpot, GamesRadar, IGN, IndieGames, Joystiq, Kotaku, Massively, MCV, NowGamer, PocketGamer.biz, Polygon, Shacknews and VG24/7, published over a period of twelve months. He then did a search on how often these games articles mentioned sexism, feminism, or misogyny.
The result? Over a period of one year, 0.41% of 130,524 articles referenced feminism, feminist, sexism, sexist, misogyny, and misogynist explicitly. 
That’s less than half of one percent.
So next time you hear someone whining that “feminism is taking over video games journalism”, what they’re actually whining about is that feminism exists in video games journalism.

If all videogame journalism did was review videogames it would just be an advertisement.Journalism implies investigating the social impacts or causes of an issue. Feminist theory and social justice issues are LITERALLY ELEVATING VIDEOGAME WRITING INTO THE REALM OF JOURNALISM. And all this is besides the point anyway, because “gamergate” was started to purposefully, deliberately harass and attack one woman. So saying “gamergate” is important is literally saying it’s important to threaten and abuse women.
