    McTucky Fried High Special Guest: Rob Carnilius with Anna DeShawn & the QCrew

    in Entertainment

    McTucky Fried High stands as one of the only openly LGBTQ animated series to date. While popular network cartoons like Steven Universe, Adventure Time, andThe Legend of Korra can be progressive for LGBTQ media, they still face censorship that limits their discussion on sexuality and gender identity. McTucky Fried High is helping to lead the wave of animated media that affirms LGBTQ experiences.

    As a web cartoon, McTucky is accessible to anyone with an internet connection. Season 1 had 5 episodes that discussed coming out of the closet, bullying, body image, gender identity, and sexting. You can watch Season 1 here!

    Season 2 of McTucky Fried High will have 7 episodes and will introduce new characters and topics like religion, feminism, race, STD's and intersectionality. We will also have complimentary curriculums for each episode!

    Our first season accumulated 36,000+ views on Youtube, was screened at numerous film festivals worldwide, and was recently dubbed in Japanese with a collaboration with students at Aoyama Gaukuin University in Tokyo,  Japan.

    WC&P: "Warren Pollock-Gold Will Survive Coming War Even If You Don’t"

    in Education

    Published on Nov 15, 2015

    Financial and geopolitical expert Warren Pollock says that the U.S. will go into the biggest financial depression in the history of the world. Pollock says, “Unlike we have ever seen, and it’s possible war is going to be the resetting mechanism. Let’s look at it from the perspective of China. Their economy goes bad and guess what? They are going to say the Japanese are evil. The Americans are evil. . . . Japan sees this war coming. Russia sees this war coming. To some extent, some generals in the U. S. see this war coming. They are stockpiling bullets. They have their heads in their asses in the Pentagon.”

    How does gold do in the coming depression and World War scenario? Pollock says, “I wouldn’t sell my gold for anything because it’s going to survive through this crisis. It’s going to survive through deflation. It’s going to survive through hyperinflation. Gold is going to survive through war, assuming that you do.”

    Origins of the Earth People

    in Spirituality

    194. The ones of other colors only then came very much later to Earth, as well as colossi, giants, titans and the dwarfed, as well as naturally developed beings, as well as dwarves, among others, from which very much later, that is to say, only about 21,000 years ago, their late descendants settled on the shores of the SANURA LAKE and lived there until the embankment broke in the western part of the lake and everything was washed away.
    195. The shore upon which the approximately 40 cm [16”] tall dwarf beings lived was located, at that time, exactly there where the Semjase Silver Star Center stands today.
    196. The differently colored ones who subsequently came to Earth were exclusively very strongly dark-skinned and established themselves in that land which today is the continent of Africa, from where they then spread out further, some to Australia and New Zealand and others to various other locations.
    197. The yellow peoples - the Chinese and the Japanese - are the youngest inhabitants of the Earth, because their appearance on this planet was only a little more than one cosmic age ago, and indeed, seemingly exactly 25,978 years ago.
    198. They came here from the planet NISSAN in the neighborhood of LASAN in the Lyra system.

    in History

    In the perpetual doom and gloom that prevaded throughout the U.S. Navy in the immediate aftermath of the dastardly sneak attack upon our naval and air installations in and around Pearl Harbor, Hawaii by the Japanese on December 7th 1941, the U.S. Navy had precious few ships left to stand against the relentless enemy onslaught. The Aircraft Carrier USS YORKTOWN was one of those ships. Big, beautiful, and strong, she contested every inch of the Pacific from the Japanese throughout the first harrowing months of 1942, inflicting huge losses upon their Empire, eventually culminating with their cataclysmic defeat at the Battle of Midway in early June of that year.

    Weird Scenes Inside the Goldmine 11/12/15 - Classic Anime and Hentai

    in Entertainment

    Birthing in the early 1960s with such works as Astro Boy and Gigantor, the art of Japanese animation arrived on domestic shores not long after. Things would change radically as we moved into the 1970s and such widely beloved cult series as Yamato (Star Blazers), Gatchaman (Battle of the Planets) and Macross (Robotech), even in their somewhat bowlderized and sanitized variants aired Stateside, blew the minds of kids accustomed to Hanna Barbera/Filmation/Warner Brothers style fluff with their comparative realism and mature themes (inclusive of such heady matters as interracial relationships, real-world style romances, character deaths and more)!

    Becoming a genuine underground cult craze among the youth of the 1990's, such late 70's/80's era space operas as Mospeada, Megazone 23, Dirty Pair and Bubblegum Crisis were joined by the syndicated television likes of Rumiko Takahashi (Urusei Yatsura, Ranma 1/2), Akira Toriyama (Dragonball), Voltron and Naoko Takeuchi (Sailor Moon), opening the floodgates for a proliferation of anime magazines, late night/Saturday AM blocks on networks like TBS, TNT and Sci-Fi Channel, and entire stores dedicated to the sale of anime and related materials.  

    With the dawn of "meta" series such as Neon Genesis Evangelion, the "harem anime" (starting with Tenchi Muyo) and crossovers to the tabletop and videogame RPG (Slayers, Dragon Half, etc.), anime went from comparative obscurity and often isolated, small-scale fanbases to a global phenomenon overnight.  

    Join us as we talk the days of actual hand drawn, boundary-pushing animation, with nigh-adversarial relations between original language subtitle fans and the dubbing-only crowd, where fans would gather together based on a dawning appreciation of what remains many steps above the standard domestic, toddler oriented cartoon.
