i get why some people feel differently

there's a scene early in the 2nd act of the film where Chavez claims that most universes give free food,

some people use this as evidence of wokery,
what they're missing is Raimi excoriiates her social justice claim,

immediately after its shown she's wrong & making assertions based on her short lived experience

a rebuttal on wokeness, not a confirmation
effectively showing her naivety
thefederalist.com/2022/05/10/sam… #DoctorStrange2
That's how Dr Strange 2 operates,

whether its the cameo characters, or Dr Strange or Wanda,

characters make claims & Raimi shows how these characters are wrong in their ideas & philosophy

Not a confirmation of them,
this isn't woke, this is Anti-Woke

🧵It's been a while I wanted to take the time to make a thread to expose you why I'm very bullish on @Dogami so here are my TOP 10 reasons to buy and HOLD #Dogami (& $DOGA that's coming soon) 🌌

#Tezos #NFT

1/ @Dogami is the first-ever mass-market #P2E #NFT game powered by @tezos #XTZ

#Dogami has secured $6M in capital from @Ubisoft,@animocabrands & @TheSandboxGame co-founders durint their private sale

crowdfundinsider.com/2021/12/184524…
2/ The community is very large & strong

@Dogami started to built its community since August last year...

While mostly every project would have lose the hype after so many month, they succeeded to keep the hype real high & they still impress #Tezos fam by keeping it high😳

We raised over $12,000 the first day of the campaign!

cthulhuishardtospell.com

Wooot!!!

Today I wanted to share with you the first page of my story with Erik Lervold, Battle Royale.

#monsters #wrestling #comics #kickstarter #crowdfunding #art #amreading
For years, the main criticism of Cthulhu is Hard to Spell was that the cover did not relate to any of the interior stories.

Well, we fixed that this year by creating a story related very heavily to the awesome cover by Aaron Alexovich.
Our story features a drag down wrestling match between Cthulhu and Zeus with the fate of the universe hanging in the balance.

I get trading #gold and #silver, or the #mining stocks, when the price is running. I do that. But as a long-term #investment, it's absolute shite. I don't get why people want to own it. It barely keeps pace with inflation over the long-run.
A thread 👇👇 Image
Since 2002, #gold has performed better, averaging 9.82%/year.
Basically, if you invested in gold between 1999 and 2002, you outperformed the S&P500 until now. Over any other time frame since then #stocks are the superior #investment choice.
#Silver has a negative return since 1980.
79-80 is a fascinating year and story as two brothers tried to corner the silver market and drive the price up. They did...for a time.

The largest #comics social media page on the net,

r/comics on Reddit banned @BloodyRedBaron & his new pro-cop superhero comic for racism & misinformation,

They also banned the @FDRLST citing my article for Baron's ban

Hat tip to @BleedingFool & @BoundingComics
In addition, Facebook has made it all but impossible for Baron & others for ads on Facebook for the Thin Blue Line @Indiegogo campaign,

Blocking ads under the "sensitive social issues that could influence public opinion" rubric

How 1 brave esports host sacrificed her multi-million dollar network, career & the careers of her associates to complain about imaginary misogyny🔦

OH.....& how she mentioned G4 hosts don't play the games they have to review😬 #gaming #G4TV #gamers
Gaming world spiraled into outrage earlier this month when Indiana @Froskurinn Black, host of Comcasts new gaming network @G4TV lectured viewers on finding her less “bangable” than previous hosts

Lecture so shrill & destructive,
Must be seen to be believed👀
@FDRLST #frosk #rant
Outburst racked up millions of views across social media & gaming outlets covering the story

Old fans of G4, unaware the network had relaunched, were blasted w/ the decadent state of their old favs 😵‍💫

Hey Twitter! It's been a while. I used to write here all the time hanging out with #scifichat, #comicschat, #litchat, talking about #science, #tech, #autism and a dozen other topics which broadened my horizons and let me share my diverse interests in almost everything.
Then my life got incredibly busy. My son went to high school and coupled with his #autism, our lives became super-complex. I lost my job and my car gave up the ghost after four years of @Uber. Then the unthinkable, my wife experienced #renalfailure.
4 years ago, she underwent an operation for #peritoneal #dialysis. This form of at-home dialysis would let her take care of her renal needs at home avoiding the need for external #hemodialysis centers. In hindsight, this may have saved her life.

because nothing appeals more to the majority comics buying audience, middle-income 50 year old straight white males, than Tennis 🤦
#comics #dccomics #tennis #directtvstream
this ad has been in my feed constantly since September,

I'm sorry, its ridiculous, this is done to make Williams & media people happy, not the comics buying audience
#comics #dccomics #marvel #mcu #tennis #manga #advertising #news #DCAboveAll #WonderWoman
Just think this ad through for half a second:

"I wasn't going to get another justice-league issue but i just had to have that one with @serenawilliams"

Anime & Manga are amazing,
but both facets of the industry is how terribly they treat their workers,

But that is a problematic Japanese business practice that you can find all over the place
crunchyroll.com/en-gb/anime-ne… #anime #manga
Then you have to ask:
as compared to what?

Animators & comics creators aren't paid very much hardly anywhere, both industries rely on underpaying talent & getting cheaper work outside of the country
Even video game development,

its a common business practice to treat workers like crap during crunch & outsource major sections of development to cheap companies in Malaysia & Vietnam,

So Anime & Manga in that sense aren't much worse than many big entertainment industries

I'm seeing these type of posts all over my comics social media,

Nerds that aren't particularly politically engaged & are turbo nerds are feeling very frustrated with the BIG 2 these days
#comics #dccomics #Superman #JonKent @BoundingComics @BleedingFool #mcu #marvel Image
most of these collectors aren't comicsgate fans,
these are hardcore comic book fans that couldn't care less about the news of the day,

That DC is doing the impossible, finding a way to alienate them, is down-right impressive
Factor is totally ignored,
These guys are the ones buying the majority of books,

keeping the flame alive🔥

DC & Marvel are managing to scare them away💨

Here's a look at just a few of the phenomenally talented Chlean creators. If you're looking for new voices or undiscovered books (new and undiscovered in the U.S), take a look at this video and download the catalogue at this link:

SHOULDN'T SUPERMAN INNATELY BE GOOD AT COMBAT?

The Answer-Man's mailbox runneth over this week. But only one question caught my eye.

Another variation on
• Can Superman actually fight?
• Isn't he just a brawler?

Let's deconstruct this:

@MarkBrooksArt #DepoweredSuperman
Q: Shouldn't Superman innately be good at combat?
A: Who says he isn’t?

Is it the fan who wants to say Batman is a better fighter because he’s been training since he was a teenager with his vaunted 127 martial arts?

Cool story, bro.
Or another fan who says that Wonder Woman is better because she’s been training to kill gods on Themyscira since she was a child?

Superman is a better fighter than both of them.

There. I said it.

Why? Because his mind is better than a Human one. He has total recall.

Stuff you can borrow and take home from the HCC Libraries, a thread 🧵 #hccfl
1/ Let’s talk #books 📚 DYK we have different book collections? The circ collection primarily supports research, but some campuses also have collections for fun reading (or research, we don’t judge)
2/ Most books are a 14-day loan but you can renew them twice ✌️ #comics, #fantasy, #mystery, #NYTimes best sellers... we have it all...
