Hating Popular Things Makes You An Intresting Person (Freewrite)

Mark Twain once said, “Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.” Anyone who does not think Averages: Infinity Wars is a masterpiece superhero film obviously stands opposite to the majority.   Bored at work, I decided to make a shitpost on some Black nerd anime group stating that I do not think Infinity War was a great film (despite the fact I have yet to see it and I wanted to stir up a flame war). The post was merely an excuse to secretly give spoilers of characters dying (as I used a gif of Beerus of Dragon Ball Super erasing Zamasu from existence: a subtle hint to what Thanos did half the universe in the movie).

As expected, Marvel fanboys (who can’t handle the fact people won’t dickride their favorite movies/comics) attacked me. They called me a troll, a hater, insane, whatever insults they could use against during their blind fanboy rage.  I simply laughed: as they didn’t know I never watched the movie (and I was going off spoilers I read online). Manipulative? Yes.  Yes, it was.  Do I care? Nope. Anyways, scrolling through yet another masterpiece troll post of mines I came across a post with the Kirby meme “Hating on popular things doesn’t make you interesting.”

hating-popular-things-doesnt-make-you-an-interesting-person-32078954
I love this meme.  Love to make fun of it given how silly it is to think that way.  See, I think people who don’t like things others enjoy are interesting.  They bring something different to the table. A unique taste or flavor so to speak. It gets boring talking to people who share similar interests.  I rather have somebody who’s a bit of an outlier around.  You can’t debate and/or argue with people that share your views – you don’t learn at all from them.

Somebody who has opposite viewpoints, you can learn from them.

By interacting with those who may not share your views, you learn what makes them tick. Somebody may not Pokemon, but they love Digimon.  They might be willing to share their love of Digimon with you to give you an insight of thin passion.  You get invited to go over to their house to watch a few episodes of it and you may even enjoy it.  Dealing with people who are opposite of you is great. Furthermore, you’ll learn skills to handle situations where somebody might have a disagreement with you.

Do you really think you’re an interesting person because you like what’s popular – just like everyone else?  You’re not.  You’re not different.  You’re boring. Bland.  Uninspiring.  Whenever I see a post like “hating on popular things doesn’t make you cool” or whatever, that just tells me this: “I am secretly insecure about the things I enjoy and I can’t’ handle criticism on it because I don’t have confidence towards it.” Confident people don’t let the “hate” get to their head. They just move on with their lives, heads held up high knowing what they enjoy is hot shit.  Nobody can tell them otherwise. So what if people hate things you enjoy?  Stop reacting to the hate and do you.

I believe this world needs that balance of people loving and hating on popular things.

Don’t Lose Your Head By Letting Victories Get to Your Head (Freewrite)

Matoko Itou of School Days thought he was a player.  He was able to court the alluring yet quiet Kotonoha; a girl many in their school deemed unobtainable (due to her wealth and lack of social skills). The two started dating, although it was one-sided as Matoko only wanted her for sexual reasons. Bored with Kotonoha, Matoko went after her best friend,  Sekai.  Sekai went ahead with his advances despite the fact that her homegirl was dating the man.  One would think that a man would be satisfied with sleeping with two girls (who both happened to be best friends), but this is Matoko Itou.  After screwing around with Sekai multiple times, the kid set his sights on different girls; including Kotonoha’s bullies the mutual friends of Kotonoha, Matoko, and Sekai.

From left-to-right: Kotonoha, Matoko, and Sekai.

Matoko could have stopped right then and there.  He already slept with multiple girls but he wanted more.  He got more than what he wanted when Sekai winded up becoming pregnant with his child.  Upon knowing he would become a father, Matoko decided to stop his player shit – but it was far too late.  Sekai, anger by the selfish actions of Matoko, murdered him.

Kotonoha then finds Matoko’s body and severed his head.  She then killed Sekai out of jealousy.

When it comes to victories, many men let the results of their actions get to their head.  They are ignorant of the dangers of that lies ahead of victories.  Error, pitfalls, and downfall lie in wait for foolish people who push past their mark.  You need to learn how to be happy with your results from your victories and check yourself so that you won’t be consumed by the greed of wanting more than you can handle.  It will cost you more than what it is worth.

Yes, Matoko earned the right to be happy and celebrate his success of courting a girl such as Kotonoha.  Yes, it was normal for him to feel great about it. But to pursue other young women when he had Kotonoha was foolish.

Seducing her went to his head. He lost it as a result – figuratively and literally.

Can’t show gore here so here’s a nice boat. 

‘The moment of victory is often the moment of greatest peril. In the heat of victory, arrogance and overconfidence can push you past the goal you had aimed for, and by going too far, you make more enemies than you defeat.

Do not let success go to your head.’
Law 47 of the 48 Laws of Power by Robert Greene

(Now, use your head and do NOT watch School Days. It is a dumpster fire of poor production quality and writing)

Be Careful: There Might Be a Monika in Your Circle

They smilin’ in your face
All the time, they wanna take your place
The Backstabbers

The Backstabbers by The O’Jays (1972 soul song)

Monika of Doki Doki Literature Club is one fake ass bitch.  First off, she tricked everyone with her smile, charming personality, and warm appearance.  She made you think that she’s friendly and cool. Yet, she winds up murdering her friends and kidnapping the main character (MC) out of jealousy.  Rather than celebrating her friends for getting with the MC, she manipulated their personalities and had them killed.  Kinda like how the fake people in our lives act. They see you winning or making moves and rather than to clap for your victories, they be on some passive aggressive shit. They love to talk ill of your achievements. They love to plot against you over what you have (because you have what they don’t).   They run their mouths to others about your flaws and spread rumors to discredit you.  Seems bad, right?

Nope. It gets worse.

Some fake friends you dead!  They wanna see you die! They might even kill you themselves! You don’t even know it.  Just like how Sayori, Natsuki, and Yuri were unaware that their “friend” Monika was planning to kill them, you just might have a friend in your circle who wants you dead.  They want to kill you because they can’t stand the fact you have more than them.  They can’t stand it that you – somebody who wasn’t supposed to be something  –  became something.

How do you know if you might have a Monika in your circle?  Let’s find out.

__monika_natsuki_sayori_and_yuri_doki_doki_literature_club_drawn_by_glamist__sample-722cc11fa9e79f2d43748ce718b8d0b4.jpg

In order to detect the Monika, we gotta break down what is and what makes a Monika. In short, a Monika is that friend who’s super jealous, insecure, and angry at everyone winning.  They see everyone gaining success and that makes them bitter. Because of that, they come up with schemes to bring you down.  You ever did something that’s worthy of praise and everyone clapped and celebrate for you it but one of your friends didn’t?  Or they say some slick shit about it without any advice to improve and better yourself?

That’s your Monika.

Monika didn’t celebrate any of her friends for getting close to MC.  In fact, what makes her pathetic is that Monika had the nerve to talk shit about her friends behind their back.  When the MC catches Yuri cutting herself, Monika takes him back to the classroom and the two have a little talk.  Monika mentions that Yuri self-harms as an outlet to express her emotions – in addition to possible sexual reasons. Then,  she wanna ask you if that kinda messed up.

Nah, what’s mess up is that this bitch knows her homegirl cuts herself and ran her mouth about her friend’s private mental health issues to another friend. A  real friend would have been like “Let’s help our homegirl out. Let’s have her talk to a therapist so she can get the help she needs. We need to be there for her and love her regardless of what’s going on in her life.”  A real friend would have confronted their friend about their self-harm habits  – not spread that information to others.

 

 

 

See, you gotta be careful about telling your flaws and issues to some friends.  You may think they care about your issues, but in reality, they don’t.  And they will spread that information to others just to make you look and feel bad. Reflect on a time when you told a “friend” about a situation that was personal and private. You thought you did right in telling that friend such information but they turned around and told others.  And you only found out after a 3rd party informed you of such details (who wasn’t supposed to have that information).

That’s that Monika shit.

This brings me to my final point.  The fake friend – the Monika – will overexaggerate your flaws around others to make you seem like a horrible person.  In DDLC, Monika admitted that she manipulated her friends’ negative traits to extreme levels in hopes that she could trick the MC to fall in love with her instead. Sayori was battling life-long depression.  Rather than helping her homegirl out, Monika drove Sayori to suicide.  Yuri may have been a little passionate about the things she loves. Monika decided to turn Yuri’s passionate personality into that of an aggressive, obsessive love-struck girl. Monika made Natsuki low-ley said some shit about a possible abusive homelife and use it against Natsuki. All of this, just to make her friends looks bad in the MC’s eyes.

 

 

 

In the real world, fake friends will make your negative flaws and traits seem worse than what they already are. If they want to make a villain or somebody that nobody should associate with, they will do it.  Fake people love to use your flaws in order to get ahead in life or reach their goals.  A real friend will say something about your flaws and help you improve on them.  A fake friend stays quiet about your flaws in order to screw you over.

The Monika in your circle will use your flaws against you.

While Monika is a fictional character in a fake world, the dangers of fake, backstabbing friends are real.  They let their insecure nature get to their head: driving them to do horrible things to their “friends”.   They do not praise the success of their friends. Rather, they talk ill about such things. They see your flaws and errors as a chance to bring you down.  They don’t care about improving their own flaws or helping you with yours.  They just want to be on top by any selfish means.

If you have a Monika in your circle cut them off now.

Fake friends: When they done talking to you, they start talking about you.

-Nino Brown (from his audiobook Mackin’ and Stackin’ Vol. 2)

Nerd Culture 3

Dear Nerds: The Past is the Past – Get Over High School.

From my last article, I stated how nerd culture has reached popularity that rivals mainstream culture.  Years ago, anything nerdy was deemed pathetic – activities that only people with no lives enjoy. Today, it’s going through a renaissance. Superhero/comic movies are now major blockbusters. Video games are treated as a serious art form. Anime is no longer viewed as a joke  (for the most part).  Yet, despite those achievements, there are bitter nerds angry with the newfound popularity (of nerd culture). They’re upset at the past (as they were bullied for being nerds, weren’t accepted, etc.) They continue to cry about whatever happened to them in high school.  Can I say something?  If you’re this type of nerd, you need to get the fuck over it.

High school is over.  Nobody (but you) gives a shit.

The past is the past; let that shit go. You need to stop being mad at your peers from high school just because they rejected you (for being a nerd). The popular preppy girl who wouldn’t dare date you because you played Pokemon? She’s now fat, have five unruly children from three baby daddies, and she’s working at a dead end job. She’s hopeless.  The asshole who called you lame because you wanted to study rather than hitting up the weekend party?  I bet you he ain’t doing shit with his life today.  He’s strung out on drugs and begging people for money on the streets.

Ed_ed_Eddy_Thugs_2.png

You, my friend?  You’re doing well (I hope).  You’re working on your goals, dreams, making money, and life-changing moves for the better. There’s a special somebody in your life that appreciate your nerdiness.  You changed your wardrobe and rocking the fresher clothes of the season; clothes your bullies never imagine you wearing years after high school.

You changed, just like trends and the people who may have made fun of you.

 

Here’s what you need to understand.  The bullies and assholes that made fun of you could’ve changed after high school.  They could have realized that they were horrible to you and others.  Perhaps one day they reflected on their hurtful actions of the past, realized what they have done, and made the effort to never repeat that shit again. Teenagers are pricks.  They should know better, but it takes a while for people to grow and self-improve for the future.

People need to change for the future.

Let’s talk about the future.   We’re living in the golden age (of nerd pop culture).  Superhero movies are bringing studios hundreds of millions of dollars (the good ones of course).  Adults are playing on their 3DS in the open without normies talking shit about them.  Otaku are expressing their love for the anime medium without fear of ridicule.  You can talk about the latest episode of Dragon Ball Super or My Hero Academia with your coworkers.  Cosplay is getting the respect it deserves.  Everything nerdy is slowly becoming accepted and not made as a joke to belittle the people that love it! I can bet money that in a few years, people will no longer be mocked or bullied for liking anime, video games, comics, etc.  It’ll be too deep within the mainstream for anyone to go out their way to bully people over those things.   So what if there are some norimes who think that shit is lame?  Fuck them! Let them be stuck the past with that old mindset.

We’re moving towards the future.

Hey Broke Weeaboo! Don’t Blow Your Income Tax Money.

Congratulations! After pimping you out of your hard earn money for a year, the government has given you back $2000 on your tax return!  As a hardworking former NEET (Not Employed, in Education, or in Training), you deserve to treat yourself with that pathetic amount of money. So, what are you going to do with that $2000?  You gonna blow it on a big tiddy Hotaru Shidare mouse pad?  You really gonna drop $500 on a catgirl Yumeko Jabami figurine that will only collect dust over time?  You thinking that wasting $50 on a fake Supreme shirt with a half-naked Sailor Venus sippin’ on lean and a lit blunt in her hand while Sailor Mars snorts cocaine off Venus’s ass gonna make you look like your rich?  Boy, are you stupid?   Don’t use your income tax money to stunt like you’re Jo’on off Touhou 15.5 for a week. Especially if your bank account says you’re living like Shion for the rest of the 51 weeks of the year.

Use that income tax money to invest in yourself.  Income tax money should be viewed as an opportunity to expand your otaku empire. You want to be a content creator on social media? Good.  Then use the money to buy a high quality camera.  Spend it on audio tools such as pre-amps, condenser microphones, pre-amps, and studio headphones (especially if you’re going the podcast route).  Your income tax money should fund and fuel your passion (may it be becoming an anime vlogger, having your own show, etc.) Putting income tax money towards on a Megumin wall scroll isn’t an investment.  It’s stupid (unless you’re doing it for you YouTube channel then go ahead).

Are you tired of going to same, small to mid-size conventions in your hometown each year?  You never been to Los Angeles before and want to go to Anime Expo?  Perhaps  you’re interested Otakon in Washigton, D.C. and wanna hit it up. Perfect.  Use the money to travel to those cites and hit up those conventions. Leave your hometown for once.   If you’re a vlogger, then you can vlog about your first experiences at those conventions. Plus, this is a great way to meet new people and expand your network.  In addition,  if you go to these larger conventions, there’s a great chance you might meet Japanese voice actors and creators that your small, local conventions will never have.

Trust me: You want that experience.

Income tax season come and goes.  You will only get that money once a year. Once it’s gone, it is gone.  Knowing that, you should be wise with it and spend it on things that will help you grow as an otaku.  Putting that money towards traveling or your anime YouTube channel is smart.  Blowing it on anime figurines that won’t bring you overall value is stupid.

Please don’t be stupid.
