I want to be the first person on the moon to shoot a sniper rifle at earth and hit a wasp nest. my whole life so far is leading up to that moment
wanting to draw things but not having the energy to put effort into drawings
That’s a great gesture.
dunno why, felt like drawing MODOK tonight.
Uh, because MODOK is the shit? Yeah, that’s why.
Welcome to Day One of the 30 Days of The Thrilling Adventure Hour! Just a few quick things first…
1) When you make your post, please make a separate post instead of reblogging this one
2). Remember to tag your post with: 30 Days of TAH
3) Most days will have a subject with some possible discussion questions underneath it. You don’t have to answer all the questions, they’re just there to guide you along to talk about the main subject.
Also, feel free to take our daily graphic and use it with your post if you’d like, or not, it’s up to you. If you like to make graphics, gifs or fanart and would like to make a daily graphic or two for the challenge, drop us an ask and let us know!
One last thing before we get started. We’ll be picking 2-5 answers to reblog on FYTAH daily. If you ever don’t want your answer to possibly be picked, please tag it with something like “FYTAH don’t reblog” so we know. Thanks!
Now, on with the show!
Our first subject is all about you!
Tell us how you got into The Thrilling Adventure Hour!
How did you hear about it, and what made you decide to listen? What were your first impressions of the show and when did it really stick for you?
Did you listen straight through the first time, or did you pick a particular segment and finish it before going back and listening to more? Any final thoughts on your first impressions of the show?
While I’d heard about it and had gotten recommendations, the lovely and brilliant diebrarian was the person to finally sell me, specifically on the strength of Beyond Belief. That and my ever-growing crush on Paget Brewster (funny, smart, a great actress and THAT’S what she looks like? Goddammit, woman!)
But yeah, I listened to every episode of BB in about 3 days. I spend my whole day in front of a computer and rarely have to interact with others so I can just plug in and listen while I work. It’s just fantastic.
There have been two “walkouts” from the World Conference Against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia and Related Intolerance in Geneva….The first walkout, led by the United States, was of those countries boycotting the entire conference. These included the U.S., Canada, Israel, New Zealand and Australia—the major settler states that through genocide displaced Indigenous populations from their territory. The Netherlands, the plunderer of Indonesia, and Germany and Italy, which waged murderous wars against barely armed African populations, joined them, as did Poland, now itself a semi-colony.
A few of the largest historical despoilers and plunderers of the colonized world held back from this first walkout. France and Britain, for example, which had divided up most of Africa, the Middle East and large parts of South and East Asia, opted to participate in the conference. This gave them the opportunity to disrupt from inside—which they did a few days into the meetings.
On April 21, when President Ahmadinejad of Iran spoke denouncing the racist actions of the Israeli state against Palestinians, most of the U.N. delegates applauded the speech….However, Britain, France and the rest of the European Union countries present walked out, accusing Ahmadinejad of “racism”.
Their actions spoke louder than any words of phony concern…There has to be a vigorous struggle against racism precisely because the imperialist powers and their settler states—which for historical reasons are mostly white—have promoted racism against peoples of color and all Indigenous peoples throughout the world in order to better exploit them. The ones who wound up walking out of the conference on racism are exactly those most guilty of racism. And everyone who remained knows it.
