future corruption

inspirational ladies ashley nicolette frangipane [halsey] Badlands to me is like this futuristic society, this dystopia in the future where everything is corrupt and it’s a wasteland and it’s kinda chaotic, and it’s metaphoric for a mental state for me. So living in this mental state is like living in the Badlands where you can’t escape. Everyone around is like, ‘Oh, those are the Badlands, we don’t go there.’

Where will you find pious wives in the future, and the mothers of your future children, if you corrupt the young ladies of today?

For the au yusei?

Yusei has already been asked, but I can add some info here:

  • (Again), he’s the Guardian of Syncthra, and one of the Crimson Dragoons.
  • When Yliaster went back in time and attempted to kill him, he found out from Bruno (who is actually saving him from his fate) that he became corrupted just like what happened to Kiyru years ago, destroying everything in Syncthra.
  • Knowing this, he tried to prove himself that he won’t let that happen to him, and fought Yliaster.
  • While fighting Yliaster, Future Yusei managed to enter the present because Aporia’s seals were weakened during the battle.
  • He fought his corrupted future self along with the Crimson Dragoons, Bruno and Yliaster, and defeated him.

*going to vent a bit*

You know, I applaud any peaceful demonstrators. They’re the lifeblood of a pure democracy. For those who are peacefully marching through the streets of Baltimore hoping for change, and for those working hard to change the rules regarding police enforcement through legislature, I congratulate them. I truly do.

What I absolutely HATE is the notion by some that violence is the answer, and how some people are trying to justify this rioting by saying “the police had it coming.” Now how does that make any sense?

The “eye for an eye” principle is too primitive to be of any use in civilized society. It’s long outdated in this modern day and age and it’s not constructive at all. These looters are not going to get any progress out of this, I can 100% guarantee you. Why?

Well, for one, all these looters are doing, regardless of race, is solidifying the stereotype that people who protest a black man’s death by police are chaotic and mindlessly anarchic, instead of progressive. Society as a whole is going to look down on these people and not take any of them seriously. It becomes a circus show, and all these media outlets (CNN, Fox News, MSNBC) are CASHING IN ON IT. It’s all a big cyclical problem that only leads to more problems. And it’s not going to be changed by burning down a CVS pharmacy (where people earn their livelihood and get their prescriptions they need to keep them healthy, which a lot of people are forgetting, apparently) or throwing rocks like a bunch of kindergarten bullies.

People need to grow up and look at reality for what it is. What works in The Purge and The Hunger Games doesn’t work here. What works is working with the law to address issues peacefully, staying in school to make something productive of our lives, keeping morality and grounding alive and well, and learning respect for others and property.

So no, I will not support the looters. I will support the protesters, because they actually know what they’re doing.

Seeing Adéwalé killing the governor in FC with the hot iron and then in his confession brutally stab him in the stomach and twisting the machete a little while saying he’d like to see him suffer like the slaves suffered shows some of his dark side even before Rogue(not saying it’s bad but it’s brutal, the guy was a slaver after all). It makes his future corruption more believable as well, he had already witnesses one evil so why would he see the Templars any different?

Badlands updates

Q: Do you have any singles being released before the album?
A: I have some special gifts coming out in the next few weeks for you guys with the album preorder, which will be going up sooner than you think.

Q: Why did you name the album Badlands?
A: Badlands to me is like this futuristic society, this dystopia in the future where everything is corrupt and it’s a wasteland and it’s kinda chaotic and it’s metaphoric for a mental state for me. So living in this mental state is like living in the Badlands where you can’t escape. Everyone around is like, “Oh, those are the Badlands, we don’t go there.” And so my record is a concept record about these Badlands I created in my head and halfway through the record, after I’ve kinda told you guys about the Badlands, I make a decision to leave. And for me it’s metaphoric for deciding to leave that mental state even though the Badlands were all I’ve ever known and venturing out into the wilderness around and hoping to find solace somewhere else.
