In the lobby of the CTcon hotel on Saturday, there was a family with two cute little twin girls walking around and talking to all of the cosplayers. I was talking to my friends (hiwamu and haihane) when they were approached by the parents and these timid kids.

The parents asked: “What are you two from?”

Virus: “Uh… We’re from a video game.”

Parents: “Is it G-Rated?”

ViTri: “No.”

Understatement of the century.


This kid knows what’s up.


This article is heartbreaking. And true.

There is a reason I throttled back on doing a lot of creative gaming content a few years ago. And why I still avoid taking some jobs in the gaming world when they’re offered to me. And why, when we have a female host on any of our Geek and Sundry gaming shows, we have to monitor the comments on YouTube extra, to remove the many comments that are offensive and pollute our community’s spirit of equality. Because I hate that shit. 

There is an endemic acceptance in the gamer world that “well, it comes with the territory” when a woman receives threats and harassment and the hateful anonymous internet dialogue is focused on her body and whether they would “do” her or not. I don’t know why this became okay. It’s a vocal minority that has been given way too much power over the industry dialogue, and I am so happy to see more and more articles like this shining the light on what reasonable gamer men and women have been conned into accepting as a given.

NOTHING is a given in this world. And frankly, it taints the art form we so love and keeps it back from becoming more respected and more diverse to not at least TRY to fight it. Gaming deserves more than complacency in this area.

Even posting this link will cause me to receive hateful Tumblr PMs. I can always tell when something I write gets linked on certain places on the internet (like 4 Chan or a few other forums of troll-hood), because I’ll immediately get dozens of hate mails along the veins of what is posted in this article. 

Well, I’m a lucky one to be prominent enough to have 10 supporters for every hater. I mostly feel sorry for girls and women who aren’t in my position, who may just give up on gaming when they’re too beaten down to fight anymore.

We have to change that. For the good of what we love doing, gamers! Okay, back to work :)

They’re selling homestuck shirts at hot topic, brace yourselves a storm is coming kiddos.


There’s your proof, that was on my IG dash.

Actually, this is official! This was the shirt that Hot Topic picked to put in their…





Each workout lasts the length of the song paired with it. So put on your sports anime playlist and let’s go!

You don’t need ANY equipment for this routine - heck, you can do this in bare feet and pajamas if you want to! It doesn’t take much room, either, so it’s perfect if you’re stuck in a tiny dorm or otherwise small living space.

Try to rest as little as possible between each move to finish when the song does. If you find yourself wanting to quit, don’t give up! Remember, Onoda didn’t quit when he had to pass 100 other racers to reach the rest of Sohoku, and neither did Seirin when they were facing Yosen and it seemed like all was lost. Push yourself to be the very best you can be!


Cardio: Yowamushi Pedal - "Be As One"
Strength: Kuroko no Basket - "Fantastic Tune"
Freestyle: Free! Iwatobi Swim Club - "Rage On"
Launch: Haikyuu!! - "Tenchi Gaeshi"

And if you’ve still got energy left and feel like you can keep going, feel free to hit the bonus round:

Cardio Burnout: Shingeki no Kyojin - "Guren no Yumiya"

It’s not sports anime, but you will feel like a total badass who can slay Titans by the time you’re done.

Well there go my internal organs


Heinoustuck Music Contest Entry- Asylum

So it’s not a song for a heinous character per se, but for pre-transmutation John. Like, I imagine he’d play the piano to cope with with the rapidly approaching transmutation day and it would be pretty dreary and melancholy… so with Doctor in mind, I made this.

Basically this is how I break it down:

The first part is his piano playing, occupying and distracting himself

The first instant of bass is heartbeat

The quickening is his fantasy of escaping from getting transmuted

The part which alters between slow and speed is internal conflict. Like, could it even be possible to escape? His dad would probably catch him trying to sneak out… but what if he managed to evade him?

Ultimately… he’s not really sure what to do.

And… yeah. Here you go.
