Books, Fucking, and Future: Posted on 14 September 2017 by Andrew ANNOUNCEMENT ONE Hiveswap has been released. You should go play it! HIVESUIAR ㄈㄒㄧ NOW AVAILABLE ON STEAM Huge thanks to the entire What Pumpkin_Games team for all their hard work on this project. Everyone involved has much to be proud of. Personally, I think the game is VERY GOOD! Really, better than I imagined it would be when scribbling notes for it years ago. Credit is owed to the fans for their patience while the necessary time was taken to build a studio capable of making a game like this. And above all, credit is owed to the great team that brought it to life. If you happen to spot any contributors out in the wild, on social media or such, I hope you will extend your appreciation for what they have accomplished. ANNOUNCEMENT TWO What Pumpkin and Homestuck are partnering with Viz Media to work on a lot of cool stuff together in the future This will include projects based on both the Homestuck and Hiveswap worlds. The possibilities are wide open, but here are a couple examples of things we know we're going to work on already Viz will begin releasing the Homestuck books again starting next year. These will be nice new hardcover editions, and the plan is to just keep turning out volumes until the entire story is in print. Each volume will be full of my Secret Notes just like the previous ones were. Viz will also be involved in the release of the mysterious epilogue project I alluded to a while ago. Details on format, release date, etc, will remain undisclosed until further notice, but you can expect more information about that to surface next year too. I wanted to do something a little unusual for it, something existing outside the confines of the web story. Working with Viz struck me as good opportunity for this Aside from that, anything can happen. Take a look at the sorts of things Viz has already published or produced These are all examples of things on the table for future consideration for either Homestuck or Hiveswap. I've got plenty of ideas, and so do they. Maybe you do too?? terezis: there’s a new post up on mspa!! there is a lot here to unpack butRERELEASING THE HOMESTUCK BOOKS!!VIZ IS SOMEHOW GOING TO BE INVOLVED IN THE EPILOGUE???“SOMETHING EXISTING OUTSIDE THE CONFINES OF A WEB STORY” this just in homestucks going to be fucking real in 2018. you’re welcome

Apple, Dude, and Fucking: od-kahane-chai The goddamn Apple Store is so fucking trendy these motherfuckers don't even use cash registers anymore. Like holy shit why would I ever want to wait in line to pay for my immensely overpriced lightning bolt-to-usb cable, when l can wander around aimlessly looking for the one bearded top knot in the grey shirt who happens to have a card reader attached to his free iPhone 6? Literally fucking walked up a dude and was like 'Yo where's the till?' And guy looks at me straight in the fucking face and says, 'Oh well, there should be one or two people walking around on either side of the store who can process your payment.' ALL OF YOU DRESS EXACTLY THE SAME! Am I supposed to accost every single goddamn one of you until I finally find the one goddamn fucking anthropomorphisized Mac Computer who is willing to let me pay for this shit? And when I finally find the dude and let him tap his shit against the box that l'm trying to purchase, of course he gives me the smuggest fucking smile l've ever seen on a human face and asks, 'Would you like to use Apple Pay?' Like GOOD LORD can we please just take a step outside of your möbius fucking circle jerk and let me hand you fifteen pounds in cash? Cash money? Real fucking physical fucking tender? No it's okay, I don't need a fucking receipt What, you mean you're going to print me a real receipt? A physical receipt that I can carry in my pocket? You're not gonna beam it to my fucking wrist? You're not going to send it via dropbox to an undisclosed fucking IP Address where I have to complete a CAPTCHA and accept your terms and conditions for the one millionth time in order to check that, yes, I did just spend £20 pounds and 45 minutes on a thin wire made of plastic and metal that's gonna break in a month anyway? 1 JUST DONT UNDERSTAND THIS PLANET ANYMORE The future, its not for everyone

Being Alone, Complex, and Crying: legs-like-austin-carlile z-ay: simplypurkey Gateway of the Mind In 1983, a team of deeply pious scientists conducted a radical experiment in an undisclosed facility. The scientists had theorized that a human without access to any senses or ways to perceive stimuli would be able to perceive the presence of God. They believed that the five senses clouded our awareness of eternity, and without them, a human could actually establish contact with God by thought. An elderly man who claimed to have "nothing left to live for" was the only test subject to volunteer. To purge him of all his senses, the scientists performed a complex operation in which every sensory nerve connection to the brain was surgically severed. Although the test subject retained full muscular function, he could not see, hear, taste, smell, or feel. With no possible way to communicate with or even sense the outside world, he was alone with his thoughts. Scientists monitored him as he spoke aloud about his state of mind in jumbled, slurred sentences that he couldn't even hear. After four days, the man claimed to be hearing hushed, unintelligible voices in his head. Assuming it was an onset of psychosis, the scientists paid little attention to the man's concerns. Two days later, the man cried that he could hear his dead wife speaking with him, and even more, he could communicate back. The scientists were intrigued, but were not convinced until the subject started naming dead relatives of the scientists. He repeated personal information to the scientists that only their dead spouses and parents would have known. At this point, a sizable portion of scientists left the study. After a week of conversing with the deceased through his thoughts, the subject became distressed, saying the voices were overwhelming. In every waking moment, his consciousness was bombarded refused to leave him alone. He frequently threw himself against the wall, trying to elicit a pain response. He begged the scientists for sedatives, so he could escape the voices by sleeping. This tactic worked for three days, until he started having severe night terrors. The subject repeatedly said that he could see and hear the deceased in his dreams oices by hundreds of voices that Only a day later, the subject began to scream and claw at his non-functional eyes, hoping to sense something in the physical world. The hysterical subject now said the voices of the dead were deafening and hostile, speaking of hell and the end of the world. At one point, he yelled "No heaven, no forgiveness" for five hours straight. He continually begged to be killed, but the scientists were convinced that he was close to establishing contact with God. After another day, the subject could no longer form coherent sentences. Seemingly mad, he started to bite off chunks of flesh from his arm. The scientists rushed into the test chamber and restrained him to a table so he could not kill himself. After a few hours of being tied down, the subject halted his struggling and screaming. He stared blankly at the ceiling as teardrops silently streaked across his face. For two weeks, the subject had to be manually rehydrated due to the constant crying. Eventually, he turned his head and, despite his blindness, made focused eye contact with a scientist for the first time in the study. He whispered "I have spoken with God, and he has abandoned us" and his vital signs stopped. There was no apparent cause of death. I've been waiting for this post to show back up on my dash for months Holy shit I love this so much Contact with godomg-humor.tumblr.com

Most democrats are wealthy and have strong ties with Wall Street. The wealthy will do anything in their power to retain their power. It’s an immutable law of human nature. It is up to the people on the bottom to ensure this power structure is disrupted. Bernie may not be the end all be all, but he is a good start to ensure this happens.
