This is just driving me insane!

This is amazing.
1. The dude with the whiskey and cigarette is trying VERY HARD. He wants to be indignant but he wants to be cool! “GRR, I’m mad but look at my Vampire: The Masquerade costume.”
2. “In one fell swoop the social justice warriors have silenced all dissenting voices and ushered in a new era of political correctness!” dude if people were actually silenced you wouldn’t be able to make this video/patreon without significant consequences instead of just me making fun of them.
3. “Anita Sarkeesian got almost $160,000 to producer her YouTube videos with no discernible increase in quality. But Jordan and I? We already make high quality YouTube videos.” my dudes you guys can’t even match video quality and audio levels across two different shots. you’re pointing a webcam at a low angle in a room with no special lighting? come on.
4. “Or is this a ruse perpetuated by a group of perpetual victims for their own fame, and glory, and financial benefit?” Look if you make a video saying this and don’t realize you sound exactly like the villain from Ghostbusters I don’t know what to tell you.
Anyway, these guys are making a bunch of money off this, which is bogus and insane. The irony is that people furious that Anita Sarkeesian “scammed” money lost no money on her videos, but are going to dump a bunch of cash on this crap. The video series they deserve I guess.

Here’s a thing I’ve had around in my head for a while!
Okay, so I’m pretty sure that by now everyone at least is aware of Steampunk, with it’s completely awesome Victorian sci-fi aesthetic. But what I want to see is Solarpunk – a plausible near-future sci-fi genre, which I like to imagine as based on updated Art Nouveau, Victorian, and Edwardian aesthetics, combined with a green and renewable energy movement to create a world in which children grow up being taught about building electronic tech as well as food gardening and other skills, and people have come back around to appreciating artisans and craftspeople, from stonemasons and smithies, to dress makers and jewelers, and everyone in between. A balance of sustainable energy-powered tech, environmental cities, and wicked cool aesthetics.
A lot of people seem to share a vision of futuristic tech and architecture that looks a lot like an ipod – smooth and geometrical and white. Which imo is a little boring and sterile, which is why I picked out an Art Nouveau aesthetic for this.
With energy costs at a low, I like to imagine people being more inclined to focus their expendable income on the arts!
Aesthetically my vision of solarpunk is very similar to steampunk, but with electronic technology, and an Art Nouveau veneer.
So here are some buzz words~
Tailors and dressmakers!
Stained glass window solar panels!!!
Education in tech and food growing!
Less corporate capitalism, and more small businesses!
Solar rooftops and roadways!
Communal greenhouses on top of apartments!
Electric cars with old-fashioned looks!
No-cars-allowed walkways lined with independent shops!
Renewable energy-powered Art Nouveau-styled tech life!
Can you imagine how pretty it would be to have stained glass windows everywhere that are actually solar panels? The tech is already headed in that direction! Or how about wide-brim hats, or parasols that are topped with discreet solar panel tech incorporated into the design, with ports you can stick your phone charger in to?

Plz bring back art nouveau design in everything *_*
*I like it when people just make up entire cultural sensibilities
Oh my god!!! Gimme that!!!
