Proof that pole dancing is a fucking sport and anyone that tells me it’s not can suck my dick.

there has been no ganondorf like this ganondorf, and there probably never will be again
Either this Ganon is total bullshit or there is another LoZ story between Ocarina of Time and Wind Waker where he was a misguided dictator. I remember absolutely no time where he ever helped his people in OoT.
I love this song and this video. This is possibly the best Panic at the Disco song and video ever. And I don’t even really care for the band.
My sister first introduced me to this video a few weeks back when it first came out. She was all about the lead singer, Brandon Urie, standing naked and singing. I initially realized it was just like that D’Angelo video from years back where he sang naked. The song was catchy and I liked the video because it was simple. However, I didn’t really think about the video up until now.
Today, for some reason, this song kept coming into my head while I was shopping. Eventually, I watched the video again and fell in love with it. It’s not because of the catchy tune sang by the naked dude. It’s how much emotion and power came from this video.
The song is about a love triangle between a guy, the woman he’s in love with, and the girl she wants. The song is about him telling her his feelings. The guy knows she has a boyfriend, but the boyfriend is only there to cover up that she’s secretly in love with a girl. The guy knows her secret and he loves that she can love like that. But he doesn’t want to share her with anyone else because he is in love with her. He never thought he would be in a situation like this, but he is. So he tells her, “If you change your mind, you know where I am. If you change your mind, you know where to find me. But I dont’ wanna save your reputation.” He doesn’t want to help her hide her affair. And he says, “But love is not a choice.” Meaning that we don’t simply choose who we fall in love with, indicating that, at the moment, his love is unrequited. He will be waiting for her, but he will not help her chase after other people. And when she is ready, the girl can be with him.
Part of me relates to this song because, years ago, I had a crush on a guy who did not fully like me back. I found out the reason why was because he was secretly with another guy. I thought it was sweet but I was kinda down because I wanted to be with him. He had also dated a girl to kind of cover up his bisexuality from most people. Eventually, we did get together nearly a year afterward when he decided to give me a try and we have been together since. But I wish I had this song to play to him back then to express my feelings.
I love how the video is so simple. It’s simply Brendon Urie standing naked and singing. Normally I don’t like when bands are singer-centric but I liked this video because of the presentation. At first, I wasn’t really attracted to Urie. However, watching him express himself in this video made him attractive to me. There were no theatrics, no make up, or effects. Simply him singing his heart out. He is both powerful and vulnerable. He loves that a girl can love another girl like that, but he still wants the girl to himself and he hates making her choose between him and the other girl. However, he is in love and love, unlike desire, cannot be compromised. And that is what got me into Urie. He says it loud and proud, but he doesn’t act like a typical guy or let the girl walk all over him. He keeps his hear guarded. And that is respectable and deep.
Todd Kincannon later conceded that, if concentration camps aren’t going to work, “mental institutions will do just fine”
Trust me, there’s more than just trans people he wants to see in camps, but this is what will give him the least backlash.
PASS THIS ON LIKE A JOINT AT A COLLEGE PARTY, FOLLOWERS. I WANT TO SEE THIS FUCKER FACE SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES FOR THIS DISGUSTING THING.
Do not read if you don’t want this ending spoiled.
I finally beat SMTIV a while back and I scored the Neutral Ending, which I was totally cool with because it’s the happiest ending. And, of course, after seeing one ending, I went and spoiled the other endings for myself because I’m all about the journey and not just the destination.
So out of all the Endings, the two I would have chosen were Chaos and Neutral, off the top. It’s not just because they were the two choices where it felt humanity doesn’t neccesarily get the shaft, but also because the Law Ending legitimately bugged me story-wise.
The Law Ending is where Flynn joins Jonathan and Mikado’s side in the upcoming war. Jonathan chooses to sacrifice himself to fuse with the angels and become Merkabah, God’s “chariot.” They go back down to Tokyo, tear ass, Isabeau dies for her senpai, then Flynn and Merkabah fight and destroy Walter as Lucifer (despite the fact that Merkabah looks a lot more demonic between the two of them). Merkabah then tells Flynn that they, themselves, are tainted with the blood of the innocent and cannot go back to Mikado. Merkabah turns on the Expanse Portal and causes a black hole to consume Tokyo, killing them both in the process.
The Epilogue is the the Eastern Kingdom of Mikado is safe and blissfully oblivious to the rest of the world. Flynn’s sacrifice to the world inspires descendants for ages, etc. Mikado lives on and he’s a legend.
But personally, that makes no sense.
1.) Black Hole Causes Conflict w/ Bad Ending- The Bad Ending is what happens if you agree to the White’s plan of wiping everything out of existence. It’s pretty much the same as Law except that nothing survives. The black hole created by the Expanse devours the entire world, including Mikado. In Law Ending, the Angels pull off some kind of cop-out and managed to save Mikado. One can speculate that, as shown in the other endings, the Angels use Purgatorium as a barrier to keep anyone from below the surface from entering. However, Mikado does not separate from the rest of the world physically. It’s still a massive dome latched onto the earth like a tick. So the question lies in which ending is correct, Bad or Law?
2.) Flynn’s “Legacy”- The Epilogue in the Law Ending talks about how Flynn lived on as a legend in Mikado for generations to come. However, how would Mikado ever know what happened to Flynn or Jonathan? Is it recorded through Burroughs? Even so, didn’t the Angels want to cast off anything from Tokyo when reforming Mikado as a means of keeping the people pure? If this were the case then it would mean the technology that Hugo was bent on collecting for study would be destroyed. The only characters that knew of Flynn’s final mission were the main four Samurai, Hope, Hugo, and the Angels. And the only people who didn’t die out of that group were Hugo and Hope. So who would know what actually happened down in Tokyo after the Angels set up Purgatorium?
Also, the Angels had the statue of Aquila removed to prevent idolatry. Would constructing a statue of Flynn conflict with that policy?
3.) The Rest of the World?- The Eastern Kingdom of Mikado is the country that lives on the dome, known as the Firmament, that covers Tokyo. And apparently it’s been there for centuries (?). The Firmament that covers Tokyo is the body of the National Defense Divinity, Masakado, the biggest devil summoned for the purpose of protecting Japan, as explained in the Neutral Ending. However, no one in Mikado or Tokyo ever explains how big Masakado’s Firmament actually is. And since the game stays in Tokyo, there is no real indication whether the Firmament covers just Tokyo, Japan, or the entire world.
So the Eastern Kingdom of Mikado might think it’s all pure and holy now. And maybe, for some reason, the black hole only does wipe out Tokyo. But what the hell happens when people from China or America start showing up, dressed like “the Unclean Ones” or “Black Samurai” show up with guns, wondering WTF happened to Tokyo and why is there a crazy cult running everything? Along with the theory that the rest of the world is still seeing sunshine is also the very possible theory that this whole story only took place in Tokyo and the rest of the world is perfectly fine. The only indication otherwise is if this game were to act like a sequel to the first two SMT games, where the rest of the world was affected. However, there is no direct connection to the other games because Atlus likes to leave stuff all vague and let the fans decide.
This is another long thesis over a silly situation in games. However, I wondered if other people shared the same feelings I did or if they have a better explanation. I love Shin Megami Tensei as a series and it is possibly my favorite RPG series of all time. However, among all these factors, the Law Ending is the my least favorite, and the most confusing of the three Main Routes.
TL;DR: SMTIV’s Law Ending has plot holes and it messes with me.
nO NO NO NON O NO
guys. It’s just sculpted accordion paper.
What if the Angels from Doctor Who were made of this instead of stone?

Queens of the Stone Age- In the Fade
Rated R is an album I have really connected to emotionally. I have listened to this album, as well as the other QOTSA albums (because QOTSA), numerous times.
However, I really clung to it a year ago when a series of unfortunate events led me into a bad situation. Since then I have been battling major depression and post-traumatic stress disorder to this day. On many occasion I have been unable to handle social situations. I was full of anger, sadness, and fear. I still am. I tried to talk to friends but I could not find the answers and they did not know how to help me. Therapy helped me, however, it also costs money. I gave in and accepted medication as a means of helping me cope with my issues. And to answer the arising questions, no I have not abused them. Eventually, I could not afford therapy, my friends could not be around me, and prescriptions only help so much.
That’s when I started to listen to this album more. The upper songs like Quick and to the Pointless, Leg of Lamb, Lost Art of Keeping a Secret, Monster in the Parasol, Tension Head, reminded me how I used to be, and were songs I listened to when I was the old me, at my best. Better Living Through Chemistry epitomized my inner angst among people as well as being on meds. I Think I Lost My Headache felt like the manifestation of a mental breakdown as the music kept trailing on in loops at the end and how other people thought of me.
"It’s all my head, I know
So they tell me so
Til my head explodes
Into my head it goes”
Auto-Pilot is a chill but melancholy tune. It levels me out and brings me to a place of peace but still longing. It makes me want to get away from the thoughts and memories. And it brings me to the clarity of gestalt.
"Will we arrive in the middle of nowhere
Don’t act like you know
I’ve been here so many times
I’ven ever seen you before
But now that I have, I don’t wanna see no more”
Some of my friends said had been through shit like me (or worse experiences) and that I should toughen up. But when it DID happen to someone close to me, I felt bad because I never wanted anyone, especially my friends, to experience that kind of pain.
In The Fade almost always brought me to tears because I related to the words so much. I was in a dark place and I felt like I was only existing at times. But I just couldn’t act like the normal person I once was. And I couldn’t pretend to be someone else. I couldn’t run away or shut out what happened to me. And I couldn’t just go to anyone about my pain. Nothing that could change what happened to me. I could only try to live and carry on. “You live til you die.”
Every time I have a breakdown or depression, I listen to this song the most. Because, while it brings me back to those feelings and memories as if I’m dragged into a hole, the message is what reminds me to keep moving forward. “There’s nothing to save, I know. You live til you die.”
