Hi, Everyone.

If you’re reading this, you’ve probably been following my impotent rage over corporate insurance giant GEICO contracting the Martin Agency to create an ad that (With its Halloween theme) is scaaaaaaaarily close to a short I co-created with filmmaker Joe Nicolosi. If you need to get…

I very rarely reblog anything like this, but since I make things (and since you either make things or presumably want others to keep making things), I figure it’s important to call bullshit on this sort of corporate “fuck you, we’re stealing your idea and presenting it as our own” mentality. If you agree and feel like reblogging it as well, I’d be grateful and I’m sure John Freiler would be, too.

You have my keyboard!

Let me and Black Lady know when Internet decides to grow up.

We’re both just going to cover our cyber-ears for a bit and hum a little tune to ourselves about when neckbeards and anti-socs had better things to do than harass women—like playing video games.

The amount of effort that has gone into making a nonexistent digital molehill into mountain of hate-filled bullshit is amazing and misplaced.

Imagine if boys (if those trolls are men, then I don’t want to be one) put that same energy into doing something productive like curing cancer, ending hunger, or getting a job and moving out of their grandma’s basement.

The whole thing should make you sad. I’m tired of reading tweets from people dealing with death and rape threats. You should be too.
