A boss from my favorite game growing up: Star Fox Adventures.
He’s so fucking pretty like…hello?
He very much sticks out among the rest of my figures. Goblin, goblin, xenomorph, xenomorph, shin godzilla, murder Luke…AKECHI!
November is gonna be the MONTH for me. Pokémon Diamond and Pearl remake AND SMT V.
This is old actually. Anyways uhh…I ship it like FedEx.
I’m absolute piss at drawing Joker. I hate him. I hate him so god damn much fuck!
I really kinda gotta stop being self indulgent with my art….but Akechi has all my other muses at gun point.
Finally finished this asshole.
I miss the old loki he would have been easier to draw god dammit
jk, jk…I actually prefer this design. The stripes merely burned my retinas after trying to draw them.
(kinda wonder what Loki is gonna look like in the new SMT….)
defunctland videos: you’ll never guess who was responsible for this insane, batshit bizarre thing at Disney that got made in the late 80’s to early 90’s and everyone hated
Me, leaning forward: was it Michael eisner
Defunctland video: it was Michael eisner
Me, hooting and hollering: HOLY SHIT
My Akechi art got some very nice tags and I am trying not to cry as I make Mac n cheese.
Based on something I saw roaming Tumblr. Cannot find the exact post for the life of me.
Listen, I don’t know what kind of artist I am anymore. I draw monsters and then this shit. I don’t know. I want to scream. send help.
Look at that! I’m not dead. I’ll be brief.
I have graduated. Yoohoo.
This is Goro Akechi. He has my muses at knife point and it’s his birthday, so…
HAPPY BIRTHDAY YOU FUCKING GREMLIN. I hate you
go girl give us nothing
If you’re buying Apple shit in the 2020s you totally deserve the ripoff that you get
The fucking option that includes an Ethernet port just puts it on the external power supply, like it’s a fucking MacBook.
People keep saying that this is how computer adaptability works and comparing it to the decrease in the lack of CD-ROM drives and Floppy Disk readers.
But this is completely different! And do you want to know why? Because, previous changes were consumer led. They came AFTER the technology had run its course, had viable alternatives, and didn’t force a majority of customers to adapt for profit. Also, Apple is lying. This isn’t innovation, it’s a purposeful manipulation of the market that makes physical ownership of content more difficult.
The Floppy Disk wasn’t just abandoned. It was replaced by CD-ROM in the 90s as a more portable & less expensive alternative. And even then, CDs had existed for more than a decade before computer manufacturers made the permanent switch in 2003. And despite the switch, the production of the floppy disks themselves continued until 2011. By the time floppy disks truly faded from production, most ppl didn’t even own one. And when CD-ROM became “obsolete,” they weren’t ripped from the market and even today it’s fairly easy to find readers that are cheap and/or included with desktops or laptops.
But here’s the thing? CD’s aren’t obsolete. Neither are DVDs, USB, and Ethernet and SDs. Not really. What is there to replace them? You could say cloud, streaming, etc. But those aren’t actually replacements, they are just different forms of consuming materials. And a majority of consumers will be inconvenienced without those things. Like how would you even connect a wired mechanical keyboard? That’s not adaptation, it’s inconveniencing consumers until they get used to it.
But it’s more than inconvenience. What all of these exclusions do is get rid of physical data. It slowly ostracizes consumers from the very concept of physical data and that is incredibly dangerous. All softwares, ad-ons, recordings, and medias being relegated to downloadable accessibility makes these things harder to pirate or share. It also encourages monopolies as it makes smaller, independent production and sharing much more difficult. It also makes the distribution of softwares tied to research & employment more easily controlled by corporations rather than people. And most of all, it takes away consumer control of the things that they use.
Like even PlayStation did this with the PS5? Do you really think not having a physical drive is an innovation? With physical games you can reuse, share, and save. I can play Spider-Man, give to my cousin, and then let any friend borrow it. And unless I bought the physical game online, neither google or Amazon can add that to their algorithmic perception of me. But without that…you have content strictly defined on individual basis and algorithms.
It’s just that all of the growing exclusions aren’t adapting. They are willful manipulations for the sake of changing how large scale consumers ingage with technology and the internet.
The headphone jack was not obsolete. It was purposefully left out to sway the market towards $100 Bluetooth. Physical gaming disk drives aren’t growing obsolete. They are being purposefully phased out so that the consumer begins to rely on individual downloads and algorithm rather than sharing and saving. And USB/Ethernet/SD/HDMI are not obsolete either. They are just being ignored so as to get consumers to change their perception of tech and accessibility. As if having a computer that’s only compatible with apple tech that’s less than 5 years old is reasonable. As if any use of physical content is a paid luxury rather than the standard
Guess what? Got my first tattoo!
You guys realize you’re interacting with other human beings on here, right?
I just think that maybe some of you should be like, normal
and by that I mean that like. you need to realize there are boundaries with interactions with strangers
I feel like theres a story behind that statement
Who wronged you op?
no one has to personally wrong me for me to find fault in the way that internet users treat each other online plus also you don’t know me and i don’t know you etc etc so like if there was a Big Personal Reason for me to make a post that is broadly applicable for many ppl why would i go into it here for you. this is a normal social boundary
Gonna be getting the Green Goblin tattooed on my arm. It’s happening. Next Friday. Green Goblin. On my left arm. Gonna be awesome and I am scared.
i was gonna perfect this since i did the whole thing at 1 in the morning but you know what? no
On the rare occasion, something comes along that changes your life through its beauty. This is one of those things.
I love this more than I can express in words
*parts a bead curtain as i enter the room, carrying a glass of lemonade*
nothing you ever read, watch, or participate in will be ideologically pure and without its problems. your quest to consume the most unproblematic material will be, in the end, fruitless. your enjoyment of anything will be sapped away, leaving you a husk starved for media.
it is okay to enjoy things that have problems to them, so long as you do it critically and with an open mind, and take care to consider others.
*leaves the way i came*
This is possibly the healthiest post I’ve seen on this site
