most mods with the companions are pretty WTF. I hate the MacCready mods because they don't even look like him so why the hell would I bother. I have a lot of mods, but I prefer to keep to the fairly vanilla game for companions, they are great characters and I hate they get changed into these Barbie doll versions. Its just UGH and that sexist asshole who review mods on you tube insisting on calling women 'sloots' with his stupid accent irritates the bejesus out of me. Apologies for the language.

Yeah, I’ve seen “pretty” MacCreadys. There was one that looked more like Danse than it did Mac. And hey it’s not my style but if you like it go for it. I just feel that some of these replacers just cross the line and this is one of those times. It’s ignoring what the characters are about just to make them something to ogle. Ghouls are too ghouly so make them human. Old ladies are not sexy so let’s make them in their twenties. I’m not against people making replacers. I’m against people changing characters.

You can enjoy the ways revolutionary politics are reflected through the work of popular artists, pop culture, etc. while still being aware of the limits of their work and still wanting more.  You can support the election of a politician whose administration might increase the power of working class movements and improve working and poor people’s lives more than any other option, without being obedient to or somehow morally complicit in that politician’s agenda, and without abandoning street level projects organizing for direct power.  You can accept that there might be many complicated paths forward and society moves in unexpected ways and what purist ideologues might see as contradictory practice can actually be more effective than insisting on how wrong everyone else is all the time.  No one will want to join your puritanical club, especially if you’re not delivering actual improvements to people’s lives.

In a world where communists and anarchists are not the majority, the art and icons and political projects that appeal to the majority will not perfectly align with our ideas.  We can look for openings and alignments and resonations and we can make the most of them to connect to other people and keep spreading the project of liberation from all the different oppressions.  It is, of course, always important to remember that organizing for direct material, economic, and political power can’t be *replaced* by cultural images or politicians of any kind, but I find it much more effective to see and enjoy the good that sometimes comes in popular things than always trying to be above it all.

Persia design on Conical Bell sink
Purist Tall faucet

Decorative architecture and Moorish style define the distinctive Persia pattern. Striking open linework contrasts with geometric patterns, giving this Conical Bell sink its finely detailed look. A white background emphasizes the pattern yet is neutral enough to complement different fixture styles. This sink makes a dramatic, artistic statement.

Everybody loves Purist, and I mean everybody! (Except for Necrophos, but that’s for another story)

Everyone just wants to be friends with him, despite his huge and burly appearance. He’s just willing to help anyone in need, especially those bullied by the Magic club. He just loves breaking those wands.

Also, this was done live in my first ever twitch stream! Thanks for watching! :D
