May 12, 1991: Bill Watterson predicts vaporwave.
This is a shirt being worn by one of our editors at Adult Swim, Phil. It was created about a decade ago for Adult Swim employees only. It has been misconstrued as being “anti anime,” by some people. Here’s the story: back in the early days of AdultSwim.com’s message boards, there was a vocal minority of posters who passionately hated Adult Swim’s action block, which consisted of several anime shows (some of which were initially slated for Toonami). Our bump writers pulled the phrase “cuz anime is the s uck” from a poster complaining about anime on Adult Swim and ran it as a bump. We chose to make it a t-shirt as a comment on the illiteracy of L33T speak, and internet trolling in general. We wore the shirts as a badge of honor- WE LOVE ANIME, and always will. Adult Swim has been on the air since 2001, and we’ve had a commitment to anime that entire time. We still do. Cus anime is the s uck. ;)
"But now days go by
And I never needed you
We were just wasting time…”
there is so much to this and it kills me every time
Anyway in my expeditions tonight I’ve discovered the XTube Channel of StuntTiger, a dude who seemingly exclusively makes videos of himself falling into, what are these, stunt cushions? And then masturbating, in various fursuits. What an amazingly expensive, specific fetish. A hobby? I’m fascinated by this idea that he owns all this equipment for purely erotic purposes, that he doesn’t have any larger interest in stunts beyond it. Or is it more interesting to consider that in his “worksafe” life, he is a stuntman, and that at some point his occupation became his sexuality? Maybe it drove him into this field of work in the first place. I don’t know and I don’t really want to at this point, because there’s so much more to be said in the margins of inscrutability than whatever the plain truth is.
