*summons through human sacrifice an eldritch cartoon demon from a time that reality forgot made of living ink so we can hold hands and kiss*

“Look, real life stinks sometimes, okay? I’m not gonna lie. But there’s a better way to get through it than denial, and that’s with help from people who care about you. That’s how we’ve gotten through it our whole lives!”

*SOBBING BECAUSE LAST EPISODE OF GRAVITY FALLS IS IN 6 MONTHS*  

We can describe this film in only 14 words: In Uganda, war has hit the streets. FUCK THAT, says The Ugandan Expendables. And since we have one word left over, underline that “fuck.”

It is wall-to-wall karate and machine guns and has virtually no interest in linking events together with a narrative. You’ll never know how unnecessary structure is until you’ve seen 500 Ugandan actors explode from inexplicable violence punctuated by trial version Adobe After Effects bullets.

There is no language barrier in Ugandan Expendables. In the time it takes for you, the casual English-speaking viewer, to think, “I don’t speak Swahili,” you’ve already missed 25 principal actors get kicked to death. This is a dense masterpiece made by passionate, industrious filmmakers. 

The Ugandan Expendables includes the gratuitous shootouts from the Stallone original and somehow managed to do it with zero safety precautions and an unlimited stack of pirated editing software. Untrained stunt men fling themselves into the ground while wads of cartoon blood invade our reality from seemingly unrelated wormholes. It seems impossible you’ve ever done anything kind enough to Uganda to deserve this gift from them.

I can vividly remember when I was kid how much I loved the old cartoons, Bugs Bunny and Tom and Jerry were my favorite to be specific. I can also remember that when I was around 8 or 9 years-old I realized for myself how open and blatantly racist those cartoons were. My family didn’t sugarcoat racism for me so they explained to me that the cartoons were were but I was too young to understand, So when I finally got it, I ran and told my parents, my older brothers, and all my friends Lol, I was in shock.

As you learn about how the media is ran and their intentions it makes sense. A lot of these cartoons and the companies that created them were founded in the early 1900’s by Racists in a Overtly racist America. The goal was as it still is to depict Black People in a negative way. Black Face and negative stereotyping different races was very popular in newspapers, magazines, plays, and eventually TV. Merrie Melodies, Disney, and Hanna Barbera are just some of the companies that depicted Black characters in their cartoons as ignorant slaves, they had exaggerated Lips and eyes with cheap clothing and poor speech. They even referred to them as “Tarbabies” and spoke to them like stereotypical slaves. “The Censored 11” are 11 of the most racist cartoons that were pulled from air as time went on.

It’s just a reality of the world we live in. We must educate our children about themselves and do not sugarcoat everything so that they will be prepared to deal with the real world. Keep in mind that some of these companies still exist and are currently producing major films and TV shows right now, Don’t forget what they were founded on and be mindful of what they are showing us.

Crack is not Whack…

…at least to some of us in the roleplay community it’s not. Some might argue that crack, the genre that can be defined as anything nonsensical, outrageous or just silly, is not worth time or energy, but I would argue otherwise. In fact, here is a whole list of reasons why you should indulge in some absurdity every now and again.

1. Interactions you never thought possible are suddenly a reality. Sure, a cartoon character from 21st Century and a historical figure from the 18th Century probably won’t have a lot in common if you try to devise a legitimate plot that requires a setting and cause for interaction. However, throw them together with ingredients to make a birthday cake for the President of the United States and a deadline, and watch them take off! Sometimes you just have to suspend reality a bit to open up new ideas.

2. Low stress/high productivity makes you feel accomplished. We all have days where our drafts pile up to our throats and we feel like we might cry if we get another multi-para reply to add to the stack. Roleplay can be daunting and sometimes feel like a chore we just do not want to do. It’s okay to take a break and focus on some short, silly replies that are quick to turn around and don’t require a lot of thought. Sometimes it’s refreshing to put the angst aside, give yourself a break, and have a little fun. Your drafts will still be there when you’re done.

3. You will learn things you never imagined about your character. Part of throwing your muse into uncharted territory is the opportunity to find out more about them through situations they would not normally encounter. You are bound to learn different opinions and skills they have when you branch out from recycled plots and tropes.

4. You will end up creating genuine relationships. Crack threads tend to be short and sweet and (for the most part) don’t carry on for hundreds of replies. However, sometimes a spark lights or an idea is formed that leads to a lasting relationship or characterization that your muse will carry on longer than the duration of the thread. While the situations may be contrived and ridiculous in a crack thread, the exchanges will be genuine and those bonds will then be easier to incorporate into reasonable verses.

5. It will make you happy! There’s a reason why crack has the name it does. Like its namesake, it’s bound to leave you both smiling and addicted. At the end of the day, isn’t that kind of the point of roleplay?

“…so she can just fart it out.”

Y’all! Problematic sometimes, but I enjoy Bojack Horseman (Netflix) for their moments like this. There’s also a mini subplot about a character who leads a business that focuses on women-only safe spaces, but because of his white male privilege he misses out on a lot of crucial perspective that screws up the initial concept of his business.

Also, how terrifying and ridiculous that this satirized, cartoon conversation isn’t that far off from reality.
