Instagram Thots Flocking to Chernobyl

HBO’s Chernobyl appears to be the inspiration for Instagram Thots to go out and do what they do best at the site.

The Chernobyl site in Ukraine has been an open tourist destination since 2011, with tours taking visitors around the power plant and the nearby abandoned town of Pripyat. As often happens when a specific location becomes the subject of a media event, tourism has spiked sharply since HBO aired Chernobyl.

And of course, many of those tourists are posting about their trips on social media. The unfathomable horror of a manmade disaster that cost the lives and damaged the health of untold thousands is not immune to the spectacle of Instagram.

What do you think about this?

Nintendo Dominated E3

How hard is it to just how games at a video game conference? Apparently, EA and Microsoft missed the plot entirely and as a result gave Nintendo the perfect opportunity to just dominate, which they did.

Nintendo’s Direct showed a stream of constant game play with the occasional blurb of awkward Japanese to English moments, but those moments were made up for exciting announcements such as:

A sequel to Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild in development, Banjo-Kazooie as a character in Smash Ultimate, Luigi’s Mansion 3, Animal Crossing New-Horizons, and more.

I explain in this video

The New York Time Smears Philip DeFranco

 

The New York Times insinuated that YouTube content creators like Philip DeFranco, Nobel Prize-winning economist Milton Friedman, and Jewish political commentator Ben Shapiro as “far right” when the published Kevin Roose’s “The Making of a YouTube Radical”.

The NYT felt so confident with this story they published it on their front page for everyone to see. The article takes the story of ONE YouTube user that just so happened to watch people of a certain political persuasion as if there is a link between YouTube and ‘far right’ radicalization. Every time I hear this, I can’t help but to think back to the 90’s when people were trying to link Pokemon to Satanism or violence in games to violence in real life. While I could go far out into the woods to argue how flimsy those premises are, I actually don’t have to. Because Kevin Roose went out on the deep end  by claiming Philip DeFranco, a vanilla, middle of the road commentator, as “far right”, all I have to ask is does that make a lick of sense to you.

Does it?

No, of course not!

The NYT saw what happened between Vox and YouTube, and wanted to jump into the beat down. Vox pressured YouTube to change their policies when one of their “journalists” Carlos Maza cried foul after being made fun of on the internet. When you present yourself as someone that knows a lot and then makes a lot of dumb arguments, then people will call you out, and even make fun of you.

Long story short, YouTube first told Vox that they wouldn’t do anything to amend the journalist’s hurt feelings, but then changed their mind when Carlos Maza began signaling that YouTube hate LGBTQ to other blue check marks on Twitter. YouTube caved to the pressure and bend the knee.

The NYT saw this moment of weakness and published Kevin Roose’s story on the front page. I speculate that the NYT already had the story ready to go and was waiting for the right moment, but I do not have definite proof of that.

While I’m amazed at how far mainstream news outlets like the NYT are willing to push the narrative that YouTube is some how evil, I’m glad that they did. I believe that one can only push a lie so far until it has to crash against reality. I’m hoping that this lie, lumping Philip DeFranco in a news article that labeled him as ‘far right’, will be that moment.

I’m not aware of any legal filings as of yet, but from what I’ve read it looks like the NYT could face libel claims after publishing the front page story. Outlets like the NYT know they can generate a bunch of clicks if they enrage people, which means more money through ad revenue, but can they also handle a bunch of lawsuits on their plate?

What do you think about this?

DRINK ROULETTE – PRIVATE SHOW

61620058_884666935210843_9095422474320871424_n

Do you enjoy watching a middle-aged man embarrass himself? What about when he drinks gross things and then tries to fight the urge to vomit?

WE present SHOT ROULETTE a game thought up by Mr. Deadman’s wife, so you know it’s going to be 100% vindictive. The game is simple. Mr Deadman willbe handed shots of random liquids. Some will be alcohol, some will be something other, and a few will be something no one should ever drink.

But the question I have for you is will YOU be there to watch? The show will air live on YouTube on June 15th at 9:30pm, but only for PATRONS. How do you become a patron? Head over to www.patreon.com/deadmanstome and pledge at least one dollar. That dollar might be the best decision you’ve made in a long time.

Mr Deadman Made Me Do It?

Mr. Deadman Made Me Do It (Logo)

I stopped at a truck stop to take drain the lizard. Nothing that would normally be noteworthy, right? But while standing at the urinal, I saw something that caught my eye. A phrase etched into the wall that read “Mr Deadman Made Me Do It”. Was this referencing the song “Turn Me On, Mr. Deadman” or was this in reference to Deadman’s Tome?

What if the phrase wasn’t referencing either, but something else, something much darker and more obscure?

I still don’t know the answer to that, but I was inspired to have some fun with it. I called for stories themed around the idea of a Mr. Deadman causing people to go mad and do horrible, monstrous things, and boy did people deliver. While the issue is shorter than most, rocking eight short stories, the content serves the cover well!

This brutal issue is available in paperback and for kindle

Why take my word for it when you can look inside for yourself?

Activist Hedge Fund Buys Barnes and Noble!

Barnes and Noble might’ve been just saved!

Barnes and Noble shares had fallen about 25% since last year and has lost over $1 billion dollars. to many of you, this may come as no surprise. Barnes and Noble is dealing with enormous pressure from Amazon, and Barnes and Nobles, at least judging from a stock comparison, just does not have the muscle to deal with it. But, I could be wrong.

Vulture capitalist Paul Singer of Elliot Management bought out Barnes and Noble for roughly $683 million. Mr Singer is described by Fortune Magazine as one of the “smartest and toughest money managers” and by The Independent as “a pioneer in the business of buying up sovereign bonds on the cheap, and then going after countries for unpaid debts.”

Mr. Singer is an activist investor that uses his equity to force certain changes in order to shape a company from a money-bleeding debt machine to something that can actually make a profit. What this means for the employees is anyone’s guess, but I think it’s safe to assume that many waves of changes are about to take place. Barnes and Noble had already put all or most of their full-time employees as part-time to try to cut costs, but that didn’t stop the bleeding.

With a reputation of using his equity for activism, Mr. Singer could radically shape Barnes and Noble and give the brand longevity it needs. Now, whether or not that investment can thrive in a world where Amazon is ramping up the competition is the question I want to end with.

Let me know what you think in the comment section.
