SAW SOMEBODY SAY

"I love Scooby Doo but they could honestly start making spin offs of it where the gang has their own kids and those kids take after their parents or something instead of just remaking and trying to ruin the original show"

AND WHY DON'T WE DO THAT

Sticky toot

two types of people after dealing with hardships:

"i never want anyone to go through what i've gone through"

"i went through it, why shouldn't they?"

Sticky toot

nah but i don't get folks who get with somebody when they're not feeling the same energy

idk why folks go in things knowing they don't feel at least around the same level as said person they're getting with. y'all end up invalidating/hurting people KNOWING y'all aren't giving the same energy they're giving you and literally drain the fuck out of them, wasting their time when they could be with someone who ACTUALLY puts forth the same effort they do

subtootish:

seeing lots of photos from the west coast meant to show off the smoke and gloom and honestly one of my take-aways is "wow y'all live in some nice areas I can't believe you expect me to listen to you talk about class theory"

like some of y'all have front porches bigger than my apartment and you subtoot me when I share posts like this one: ecosteader.com/@emsenn/1047960

Geeeeeeee I wonder if there's any connection between feelings toward actions that directly challenge classism and the income/net-worth of "leftists"...

psychonautics, the 'alchemy' of tripping 

The worst trips ever and the best trips ever actually have more or less the same content. The difference is in interpretation. One person sees infinite liberation, the other one sees infinite imprisonment. I'll never forget speaking to someone who reached that particular place on LSD and said that it was like "however many boxes I climb out of, I'm still in a box," whereas to me, it was "however many boxes I'm in, I can always climb out."

It really rules when tantric and esoteric teachers especially and practitioners avoid gender essentialism, especially because there's so fucking much of it out there.

I cut off from my old Dzogchen teacher for being transphobic. One of the best spiritual decisions I ever made. Where my biggest break from the core lineage is is the notion of a 'guru.' Coming at it as a Discordian, I keep in mind the Robert Anton Wilson maxim, communication is only possible between equals.

If some posited 'ultimate' or whatever does not meet you where you're at, then it isn't 'the ultimate,' and it's not worth your time to go chasing it. Whatever "ultimate" you posit, if it is worth that term, it's all-encompassing, there can't be separation from it. You can't even 'reconcile' with it, you cannot find the 'realer' version of it somewhere else. You can find something that presents as if it is the 'realer' version, but it's like using a projector to project "this is a projection."

It is true, and it draws attention to what it is you're seeing, but it is no more or less a projection than anything else the projector puts out, even if its self-reference is accurate. It's the same with something that claims to be "the ultimate." However overwhelming and seemingly real some discrete experience pointing to it is, however much it is realized in that instant, it is not less so when you're in the middle of total bullshit.

i thought everyone got it? It was, like, pretty damn blatant about it?

xryxix boosted

like, it's a fascist government indoctrinating youth and demanding military service from them before it grants them full citizen status then throwing them into a meat grinder.
it's not at all subtle. it basically turns to camera every few minutes and goes “you are getting this, right?” basically bashes you over the head with it.

were there people actually sitting there going “now THIS is how a society should be run”?
actually, looking at america right now, yeah there actually were, weren't there?

mind you, people didn't seem to get robocop either, which does the same thing for the interactions between capitalism, gentrification, and police brutality

but yeah, media literacy is apparently a thing we should teach kids more then we currently do.
there's a reason the right dislikes the social sciences

‘Verhoeven made "a movie about fascists who aren’t aware of their fascism." The approach made sense, given that the director grew up in a Nazi-occupied Holland and therefore had some strong ideas about the subject.’

@FuchsiaShock I think the only people who didn't get what starship troopers was going for are people who watched it and said "that seems like a good idea!"

xryxix boosted

@FuchsiaShock I'm pretty sure 20 years ago I thought it was just trashy. It's just not too far away from what people say in serious.

xryxix boosted

@FuchsiaShock I think that's my issue with most satire in general. It's re-stating what others have been saying but with markers that you consider it bad. That's still re-stating the bad thing & the markers might be context-dependent and not easy to understand for everyone. I think it just adds to the noise and makes people accustomed to the bad idea.

@FuchsiaShock People on the right still argue that They Live was about the evil jews and not the real message which is anti-capitalist. Like John Carpenter literally came out and said yeah no, this movie is anti-capitalist please stop being anti-semitic about it but it's stopped no one.

Truly astounding shit.
