megalomaniacal

“God wants our help? We’ll help him. If he doesn’t, we’re gonna kick his ass.” I find this proclamation interesting because of the idea that they might actually try to help God. What kind of God is going to exist on the TV show version of Preacher? I always figured the TV conception would be different bc the comic version is pretty much just…boring, megalomaniacal scheming old man on a cloud stuff. you know the edgelord middle school conception of why All Christianity is Bad and I Hate It. I’m thinking we’ll get a more nuanced interpretation on the show and I’m very excited to see what it’s like.

just watched Glitchtale from Camila Cuevas 
OMG guys just check it out! the animation and the story is seriously awesome!
the battle scenes tho! ( ƅ°ਉ°)ƅ 

(ノ^ヮ^)ノ*:・゚✧

my personal favorite is Yet Darker (ep. 2) and Your Best Friend (ep. 4

so have some Glitchtale! ヽ(´ω`○)ノ.+゚*。:゚+

(if you watch it start from the first ep. Megalomaniac!) 

amidst all this flurry about hux’s name being revealed, i’d like to say that we’re overlooking the very interesting plot point that he’s a bastard son, as brendol had him with an unnamed woman (what is it with star wars and shoving mothers to the side?) out of wedlock. like literally everybody was thinking he came from noble pure blood stock, most likely in canon as well as fanon, and he’s an illegitimate child.

not to mention that brendol describes him as ‘[…] a weak-willed boy. Thin as a slip of paper and just as useless. But I’ll teach him. You’ll… you’ll see. He has potential.”

what did brendol do to his son to turn him into the cold-hearted, ruthless, megalomaniac general we saw in the movie?

…i can literally smell the fanworks from a mile away.

So while I as at the bookstore today I picked up A Darker Shade of Magic and Uprooted because after I’m done with the novels for my thesis I’m going to take a brief but needed break from romance, and go on reading spree devoted to a very… particular narrative aesthetic. 

An aesthetic I feel like @glitzandshadows can appreciate. xD

The society contained in The U.S. is in shambles. Racism is being tolerated when it should never be, megalomaniac police officers are free to kill innocent black citizens without consequence. The people are being sacrificed because those in charge fear change and responsibility. To my followers of color: please stay safe, take care of yourselves mentally and physically. If we stay strong we will not be silenced.

Wealthy Elite Caught Buying Huge Bunkers To Hide From General Public         By Kuma - Jul 20, 2016

A Silicon Valley insider has gone on the record and admitted that the world’s elite are buying up huge amounts of land and building underground bunkers in order to hide away from the general public.

According to former Facebook product manager Antonio Garcia Martínez (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/men/the-filter/the-wolves-of-silicon-valley-how-megalomaniacs-in-hoodies-became/), the wealthy elite have set-up private groups on the social media giant in order to discuss the  “pressing needs of the super rich,” including where to buy private planes and “how to buy a bunch of land then put it in a trust so people don’t realize you’re amassing a compound and you can maintain your privacy.”[http://csglobe.com/a-look-inside-a-billionaires-bunker-doomsday-escape-for-the-elite/]

Iw reports(http://www.infowars.com/silicon-valley-elites-buying-huge-amounts-of-land-for-secret-compounds/):

Martínez, author of an upcoming book about Silicon Valley, says that the higher ups at Facebook “have no sense of right or wrong” and act like ‘gangsters’.

“These companies are temples to the founders’ egos. You don’t even have that level of self worship on Wall Street,” he added.

It was recently revealed that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is building a 6 foot wall around his $100 million property located on the Hawaiian island of Kauai.

“The feeling of it is really oppressive. It’s immense,” Kauai resident Gy Hall told Time. 

Elitists elsewhere have also been busy buying airstrips and land in remote areas of countries like New Zealand as an insurance policy against the chance of mass civil unrest and economic catastrophe.

Economist Robert Johnson said the rich were making such purchases “because they think they need a getaway” from Ferguson-style riots that will erupt as a result of widening wealth inequality, which it at its worse in virtually all developed countries since the 1980s.

As we reported back in April, a company called Vivos that builds luxury bomb-proof underground shelters said they were receiving a lot of interest from “high net worth individuals” who were looking to be protected from “the general public”.

“This is for wealthy people who are concerned about various disaster scenarios, but a common theme among them is a fear of civil unrest, a fear of an uprising from the 99%,” said journalist Lynn Parramore after visiting one of the facilities in Indiana.

Millionaires have also been fleeing from major cities like Chicago due to concerns over racial tensions and rising crime rates, while the wealthy are also installing panic rooms in their big city apartments for the same reason.

Sam, the minute I read your vizier post, Discworld popped into my head: "It’s a fact as immutable as the Third Law of Sod that there is no such thing as a good Grand Vizier. A predilection to cackle and plot is apparently part of the job spec;" "Once you were in the hands of a Grand Vizier, you were dead. Grand Viziers were always scheming megalomaniacs. It was probably in the job description: 'Are you a devious, plotting, unreliable madman?Ah, good, then you can be my most trusted adviser.'"

Well, I’ve never been known to be lawful good, particularly :D 

WHAT THE FUCK IS UP WITH ALL THE DOG KILLING IN JOJO?

First Danny gets fucking incinerated (and the manga actually shows him burning to death). And now that image of that poor little dog getting suffocated and then decapitated in episode 9 of Stardust Crusaders is going to give me nightmares tonight. From what I understand there’s even more dog-killing ahead. I’m 100% aware that this is all fictional, but still. I can handle pretty much anything but animals (especially dogs) getting murdered. It’s just cheap shock value.

I mean, Kars might be a genocidal megalomaniac, but at least he saved a stray dog from being hit by a drunk driver. We need more Kars. Kars will make Jojo villains great again.
