a lot of people talk like capitalism is necessary to have innovation and I just think of all the brilliant and creative people I know who spend all of their time and energy worrying about how they’re going to have a roof over their heads and food to eat. capitalism doesn’t drive innovation, it stifles it and shackles it to the endlessly wasteful machinery of exploitation.

why did being a weeaboo become acceptable again
(applies to all you weebs making jokes about “senpai” and “kouhai” and calling each other ___-kun or ___-sama or whatecer)
but japanese use english as a joke!: english has been used as a tool of colonisation and oppression, placed in the hands of white colonisers. after having bombs dropped on civilian cities and japanese-american diaspora being interned we should have the right to make fun of america sometimes.
but it’s out of appreciation!: if you appreciate a culture you’re not part of you don’t make fun of it
but it’s just an anime stereotype!: anime’s japanese media made for japanese people and if you make fun of anime’s language use in this way you’re making fun of japanese culture
but i’m learning japanese!: then speak it in full sentences
but (japanese person i know) says it’s okay!: that’s all fine and dandy but that doesn’t make the feelings of me or other people, including my family, just go away
i just want some culture of my own, i don’t feel like i have any: culture is literally what happens when humans interact with each other, if you’ve ever been in contact with another human being then you have a weird sort of culture. the fact that you can read this means you have culture. culture’s kind of like accents in that way
if you want to take part in japanese culture go to a festival held by japanese people (if you cosplay there i will find your bed and put breadcrumbs in it each night), read books, learn the language. just be respectful about it, culture is the way people live, not a plaything

As promised, here’s my scanlation of the SMT1 OST liner notes that eirikrjsgenerously scanned that has Kazuma Kaneko talking shop about his pixel art philosophies. :D!

There’s a decent amount of ground covered here considering how short it is. Some of his advice is a little dated, as indicated by his references to sprite color pallet limitations on consoles during SMT1’s heyday, but hopefully this is still a fun look into how some of Atlus’ most iconic demon designs were originally handled. Pretty unorthodox jumping immediately into sprite work for a lot of demons!

For best readability, make sure to right click each image and either save it or open it in a new tab so that they can be viewed at full size.

Thanks for reading!

Incredible stuff. We don’t deserve you!

This is the Lord’s work right here.

i like that he tries to call out people who are anti-feminist when 80% of this list is judging women’s behavior/general sexism

and also “don’t message me if you belittle transgender people” followed by what is essentially “don’t message me if you’re trans and you expect people to not be grossed out by you”

male allies, y’all

As often as Kanye West talks about the state of his mental health, one would think that we’d be having a national conversation on mental health–kind of like the way we had a wave of conversations about domestic violence in the wake of the Chris Brown-Rihanna incident. Yet, in the four years since Kanye began talking openly about the depression related to the death of his mother and the dissolution of his romantic relationship with longtime paramour Alexis Phifer, the conversations have continued to be one-sided.

A search for “Kanye West and Depression” brings up surprisingly few articles and discussions. There’s a sterile AP article describing his initial comments, Cord Jefferson advising Kanye to go to a therapist on The Root, an MTV news article on his path to recovery, and Tom Breihan in the Village Voice distilling 808′s and Heartbreak down to “emo bellyaching” and a “album-length tantrum at his ex.” While Bassey Ikpi later argued to have some compassion for Kanye, it was one small plea in a sea of indifference and condemnation.

After four years of being open about pain and vulnerability, I’m starting to wonder if society will ever really hear him.

The R’s editor/owner Latoya Peterson is posting about mental health—in pop culture and in daily lives—all this week. Check out her analysis on Kanye West’ 808’s and Heartbreak and how badly pop/media culture handled his discussing his mental health on the album on the R today.  (via racialicious)

Just wanted to highlight this bit:

the only acceptable emotion for Black men to publicly express and still retain their masculinity is rage.

This reminds me of Tricky back in the 90s - he said in a documentary once that whenever he did photo shoots for magazine covers they wanted him to look angry and make rage faces and look tough. But his music wasn’t really about that, it was about feeling sad and confused a lot of the time. But nobody wanted to see that, they said he was more marketable as an angry black man.

this actually, this actually really means a lot to me right. when I first heard that album, it connected with me on a primal level, it’s my favorite kanye album, I think it’s a perfect album and I’ve never understood why people shit on it so much. I still hope that time will tell and and people will come to see it for what it is.
