What to expect from this account 

I have this account to bitch about things I hate, gush about things I love, and snark about things I think are stupid.

Also, I boost things I think are insightful, outrageous, or funny.

Good luck guessing which is which.

I cross post my own posts and threads from Twitter, but not RTs, QTs, or replies to other people.

I tend to livetoot(?) my viewing of anime.

The Zeitgeist has changed, it's no longer 2004 and Stewart can't operate in the environment he personally created. I'm glad that every Soylennial will see their God fail and be exposed as irrelevant as their shit takes they've had stuck in their brain for twenty years.

The warrior gaped, axe in hand, suddenly unsure of how to proceed, "Yes?"

"Then get in line and I'll deal with you when it's your turn."

The warrior shuffled to the back of the line sheepishly, until finally, it was his turn.

"So, we meet again."

"Unicorn latte please," the warrior mumbled.

"No duel?"

"You've... proven your bravery."

(There were a lot, but they seem to all be dead or have migrated to Chromium.)

Tom Lehrer at age 85, swearing 

Via Wikipedia:

> In 2012 rapper 2 Chainz sampled Lehrer's song "The Old Dope Peddler", on his 2012 debut album... In 2013, Lehrer said he was "very proud" to have his song sampled "literally sixty years after I recorded it".

> Lehrer went on to describe his official response to the request to use his song: "As sole copyright owner of 'The Old Dope Peddler', I grant you motherfuckers permission to do this. Please give my regards to Mr. Chainz, or may I call him 2?"
