>WHY YES I BLANKPOST HOW DO YOU KNOW?
Honestly it is a nice break to talk about shit that isn’t important.
>>120895461>escapism via juvenile consumerism is goodyes be a passive good goy
>>120895583Why are you here
>>120895461>WHY I ARE SO INTO POP-CULTURE FANDOMIf he'd left out the parentheses the grammar would have been fine.
>>120895461>pop culture exists in a vacuum
>>120895617to see you
>>120895617He escapes via intelligent deep adult consumerism bro, it's totally different.
No wonder people develop weird, cult-like obsessions with terrible shit like modern Star Wars and Doctor Who, the alternative is being forced to face reality.
>>120895671I face reality with my dick out mate.
>>120895617why are you
>>120895671Why don't they get into something like anime then? Star Wars isn't escapism. It's corporate leftist political bullshit.
>>120895521Ironic cuckposting is not much better, fuckboi
>>120895461I have a question, do people really just identify as being into pop culture?Not even a specific fandom just "pop culture" in general?
>>120895559This. But to make your entire personality revolve around pop culture? Now that's just sad, famalamadingdong.
Nothing wrong going into fiction to hide out from reality, but that doesn't mean you should obsess over media intended for four year olds.>SnoopieLiterally for young kids>Invader zimProbably for five year olds>Joker For six year oldsMaybe um read Tolstoy, flip through a Corto Maltese, watch a Terry Gilliam... Anything your age basically.
>>120895671>modern Star WarsNah, you’re a manchild too for liking it before Disney
>>120895461lol when Adorno said that the culture industry pacifies the population by turning them into docile consumers who live in fantasy worlds separate from any sort of real world struggle, people basically called him a conspiracy theorist
>>120895790Not specifically, no. But if you enjoy various series I guess it's just easier to say you're a fan of pop culture than to say "I like Star Wars, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, Batman, James Bond..." and so on.
>>120895827What happend to them, do they have some sort of disability?
>>120895741Because marketing and previous popularity perpetuate it. Nobody's going to want to talk about the latest Mary Sue isekai weebfest at the water cooler, but a lot of people feel culturally mandated to watch Star Wars.
>>120895843uhmmm but steven universe deals with morals and ethics too, even better than tolstoi?
>>120895828True, but also people whose entire lives and personalities revolve around politics or their gender or their sexualityare just as sad. Like, get a fucking hobby. Go bowling or something.
>>120895848This tbqhwyfam. Good games tho
>>120895461>oh that's totally me!Btw my tattoo was chosen by my wife's son.
>>120895866that adorno guy never met voldemort i mean trump
>>120895910Do Japanese people even do that? Assuming they have time for a water break in their 15 hour workday
>>120895866Adorno was kind of a elitist cunt, though. Don't get me wrong, the guy had every right to be angry about the state of the world, he was a literal refugee from Nazi Germany (Though, again, the fact that he could easily flee to America and immediately get a job teaching at a prestigouus university is a privilege many other jewish Germans didn't have) but he's also exemplary for what are still some very negative tendencies of the left. Like introducing the idea that the real revolutionary vanguard isn't the working class but prissy bourgeois academics like himself.
>>12089601320.000 of the same cheap plastic doll
>>120896013What do people see in these bobblehead things.
>>120896006>the real revolutionary vanguard isn't the working class but prissy bourgeois academics like himselfWell, (((he)))s right you know. You ever spent time around those subversive fucks?
>>120896101Only 750, 20,000 is the dollar amount. I can't think of a bigger waste of money.
>>120896178Their own lack of a soul
>>120896006>Like introducing the idea that the real revolutionary vanguard isn't the working class but prissy bourgeois academics like himself.He's right. Look at the world you're living in right now, nigger.
>>120895461>DISCORD!what's his problem with discord? seems pretty transphobic tbph
>>120896318I really hope that she's cheating on him
>>120895935My god I thought that was on someones ass cheek, and they had a really fucked up body.
>>120895461>Moving right along!>Starscream made cookies.It should probably be "How about that Trump, huh? Waka waka!" and "Starscream's preferred pronouns are xis and xer."
>>120896318Honestly I support that because fuck letting some dummy waste money on shitty bobbleheads.
>>120896318it's funny because this guy is having sex and you're not
>>120896318What the fuck is the appeal of Funko pops? My stalker sent me one once and I just don't get why the hell people like them
>>120896013>look at all this future landfill because it's completely worthless crap they made thousands of copies of, thus making none of this rare and collectible
>>120895461Except modern politics is escapism. People have shitty lives where they work shitty jobs (or have no jobs) so they try to feel important by fighting DRUMPF or the SJWs or whatever, when all that energy should really go to fixing their personal issues.
>>120896318this "man" is so insanely unattractive in his mannerisms, it's like he's an anesthetized 12 year old with severe autism needing mommy to wipe his ass. people like this strike me having never really thought or felt much of anything at all. it's so deeply repulsive.
>>120895876Sounds like something an idiot who exists just to be marketed at would do.
>>120896502lol why do u act like having sex is a big accomplishment, its like middle schoolwe all have sex, yes even here
>>120895617To make you seethe.

>>120896654>npc meme is realOf course. Why do you think it was so swiftly banned from nearly every website? It struck a chord.
>>120896687Think of them like religious or cultural iconography. The actual build quality of the thing isn't what matters. What matters is that your shitty American flag t-shirt makes you feel like you're a part of something.
>>120896721Lemme guess, you think your're a big boy because you like the Joker?
>>120895461All these childhood characters yet, who the fuck is that nigger? It looks like some Steven Universe or some shit.
>>120896807In light of that, even if one doesn't care about a particular insecurity/weakness or doesn't even believe that it's real/valid: hardcore leftists are terrified that they're not unique at all, that they're carbon copies of one another, that their behavior can be distilled down to a few scripts and that deep down they're not thinking before acting, they're just drones.
>>120896919>>120896654Gnostics have always known it was a thing. They're called Hylics, aka Somatics.

>>120896698Lol every end of the political spectrum is obsessed with identity politics you dumb Reddit "conservative". Even right-wingers. Who by the way, are the least employed people in the US ..
>>120897860>first off, you don't even honestly know what "leftist" even means. You are obsessed
>>120898046That's not an argument. You /pol/niggers think anyone left of Hitler is some sort of extreme communist. You don't even use the word liberal correctly
>>120898045>Who by the way, are the least employed people in the US ..source?
>>120897860Leftism is all that stands in opposition to traditionalism.
>>120898069>That's not an argument. You /pol/niggers think anyone left of Hitler is some sort of extreme communist. You don't even use the word liberal correctly
>>120896600Unironically yeah. I wish I had someone to tell me to stop my shitty habits.
>>120898069Hitler was basically a leftist too.
>>120897860Triggered that you basically share the same opinions as any big jewish hollywood studios?
>>120898070Of all working aged groups, millennials are the largest in the workforce. The workforce is not dominated by Midwest or typical blue collar jobs, especially with automation shutting down factories. Do the math, friend.
>>120898069>You /pol/niggersuhmmm racist much?
>>120898128Except he wasnt, Dinesh.
>>120897386>>120897422WHEN I KILLED YOUR, MY EYES LOOKED JUST LIKE THIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIS
>>120898142They aren't and I don't spend my time obsessing about Jews like you do.
>That's not an argument. You /pol/niggers think anyone left of Hitler is some sort of extreme communist. You don't even use the word liberal correctly
>>120898083Traditionalism is a meme. Are you Amish?
>>120898173>not staunchly monarchist or religiousPeople of the pre-modern world would have thought he was a hippy.
Imagine being such a child that rather than confronting problems and putting in an effort to solve them or improve the situation, you run towards childish "pop culture" fandoms. That is an attitude best suited for women, not men.
>>120898183You're the one complaining though?
>>120896006Adorno and the Frankfurt School were against the notion of “revolutionary vanguard” developed by the bolsheviks. Marcuse was very adamant in this point in his “One Dimensional Man” were he advocated for a form of individualism.
>>120895461wow this guy really hates discord trannies
>>120898179Why don't you go fucking look it up? The whole "conservatives are more employed" meme just straight up ignores how the largest welfare states are Red. >inb4 this is the black man's fault Blacks are minority populations in those welfare states, with poor whites sucking up the majority of the find and most jobs not even in Red states to begin with.
>>120897758That’s what those faggots turned it into. It used to be a place of acceptance. Where you could communicate with people like you stress free. A community of the like minded.I don’t know who’s idea it was, but corporations coopted it, and filled it with the human equivalent of that Steve Buscemi meme.
>>120898096Man, people who take Estrogen like its literal fucking candy blow my mind. It is a fat producing, anger inducing, absolute mindfuck of a hormone. It's like all these people forgot hormones in excess of either category fucking suck. This is the female version of roiding and Testosterone dumping.
>>120898004You sound boring. You can have fun and still better yourself, anon.
>>120897889>Pshh I can't even
>>120896537Has this faggot never heard of punctuations?
>>120898326The majority of black people in the US live in Southern states. In many of those places they're not a small minority
>>120898382It's about a hundred times harder. Why do you think poor people like entertainment so much?And why do you think people who have their life together or are getting it back together abstain from shit like the internet and tv?
>>120898370In a phrase you are probably familiar with; I'm not going to spoonfeed you.
>>120898380you say that like Jabba wasn't Jabba before he shaved his neckbeard and chugged estrogen
>>120898444>people who have their lives together, don't have funDo you honestly believe this?
>>120898484Actually think of people you know who have their life "together" and think of how many of them are completely focused on their career / love life or watching movies.
>>120895461Pop Culture fandom used to be an escape, until liberal turds decided to make it all about their politics as well.Like they decided in 2016 that the problem was they hadn't pushed their propaganda ENOUGH.
>>120898512No one has their life together. Unless they're some billionaires with no worry of tomorrow.
>>120898427Whites still hold majorities in those Red states, anon...and are largely the most prominent demographic that accept welfare along with poor black communities. I'm not sure why a /pol/nigger would want to ignore this, it plays perfectly into your victim narrative that the job market is somewhat against blue collar work, because in effect it is. Not for any nefarious reason. Just because the money is elsewhere. It's why Forbes kept warning people about Trump's retarded "bring coal back" pipedreams.
>>120896013GameStop here in Germany are now buying back Funko pops, provided they come in their original, unopened packaging, at 4€ a pop (no pun intended). 6€ if it's one of those gigantic Funkos.
>>120898548No shit nobody's life is PERFECT. But a lot of people have their lives in sort. The fact that you believe nobody does is more telling of you than me.
>>120898450you spent like 20mins bitching when you could just provide a source lol you dont have one
>white people do the majority of something in a majority white countryYes...
>>120898512You must not have many friends. One friend makes 60k a year, and we love to get together and play Mario Cart and do movie marathons. Another is a literal nuclear engineer for the government, and we do the same. You must be extremely boring if you think people just stop having interests in hobbies.
>>120898611>this means it's okay that they are sucking up welfare the most
>>120898560This is a useless conversation. The point is that black people are much more likely to be on welfare per capita, which no reasonable person disputes. The question is why that is, and your answer to that question is predicated on whether you're politically left or right
>>120898560and leftists supports illegal aliens and sanctuary cities lol bunch of cucks
>>120898607Why have you never bothered to Google search things you pretend to believe? No anon, all the Alex Jones memes about right-wingers being genius paragons of industry are correct!
>>120898618partaking in entertainment /=/ escapism
>>120895461I came here from /int/ to remind you all that wh*Tes are the cancer behind this and KARA BOGA is the answer
>>120898665There is an objective and non political answer as to why minorities are on welfare, but you won't like it. And you're missing the point, the number of whites on welfare is still fucking staggering if you take per capita into account. Which looks pathetic in majority white Red states.
>>120898653They should be. They're the majority.
>>120898738>it looks good that a majority population is this dependent on government welfare
>>120898711Liberal whites are the problem, the west coast must be destroyed before it spreads further.
>>120898766Give them their jobs back then.
>>120898701They are pretty much the same thing, brainlet. There is nothing wrong with either. You sound so very dull..

>>120896006>real revolutionary vanguard isn't the working classthat is correct thoughthose faggots won't do shit
>>120898802>muh 13 percent...We aren't talking about blacks though? The number of whites on welfare per capita is also abysmal. Why don't you want to fix that too?
>>120898830It's like they're the ones who suffer whenever one of these big brained cultural revolutions happen.
>>120898790sure, let me just turn back time and regress technology so that you can work in the mine again!
>>120895671Reality is we are all staring down a barrel held up by the jewish race, and I dont like to think about that at all so i distract myself constantly.

>>120898835but almost every criminal is a nigger
>>120898835>The number of whites on welfare per capita is also abysmal.so what are the numbers?
>>120898779Keep telling yourself that
>>120898863We could try.
>>120898878They aren't, but alright /pol/fag.
>>120897911Any escapist fantasy is inherently childish. Live life, nigger.
>>120898734Any answer to the question is inherently political. There is no apolitical narrative that explains it. Even the narratives that stress black IQ are political.>the number of whites on welfare is still fucking staggering if you take per capita into account. They're not. https://www.nap.edu/read/9719/chapter/8#159White people are far less likely to be on welfare than blacks or hispanics, per capita.
>>120898890Bad, the numbers are bad anon. Welfare is a problem across races now.

>>120898912Did you read this? Because there is a problem with how high recent spikes in welfare assistance there is for whites. I don't think you ultimately understand the point being made to you, you keep making this about muh blacks when it's a shared issue.

>>120896013I fucking hate funko pops. As a buyfag/collector its even more infuriating when i see it. Why not just get a nendo? I fucking hate normalfags.
>>120900285Nendos are several times the price and you have to buy them online. Funko has the lowest common denominator audience in mind.
I find funko pops disgusting, since the target for it are people who just mindlessly consume popular media without any specific interest. They're cheap, and ugly. Someone who really likes batman or whatever who has so little shame they'd buy figurines should buy something more substantial I think.

It shouldn't be enabled.

>>120896579Those people are the majority of consumers, nothing will ever be good as long as there are hordes of people that will pay for it regardless of quality
>>120899901When you take into account proportion, then it's still a ridiculous number of whites on welfare though.
