Me and the Idea Channel team made this video about the new Ms. Marvel and complicated nature though ultimate importance of representation in western media.
As a straight, white dude I was super nervous making this video but also really excited about getting to say these things to our subscribers since I think they are important and–not exaggerating–will bear heavily on the future of media.
It’s not perfect, I don’t think, but it’s at least another gathering point for this conversation. If you’d like to watch it and talk about it (or at it)… here it is.
A military force cannot be taken seriously without intimidating propaganda posters.
The text says “Be husse”, that’s the shortened version of the phrase ‘Jus be husse’ that you can hear ingame. I love it. Since ‘husse’ sounds a bit like ‘hush’, I think that it means ‘Be quiet’, but that’s just me.
Free thinking is not welcomed in any self-respecting military dictatorship, you better look out what you say. Or better yet, don’t say anything at all.
My latest doodle was featured in a Warframe livestream =O That’s possibly the first time that more than 5 people saw my stuff simultaneously. A moment of glory for the mediocre artist *happytears* 45:06 would be about the right time to see it.
Warframe is an F2P action game with spaceninjas. The game’s design choices were so much to my liking that I actually started playing it way back in the closed Beta, although I dislike shooters. Now I’m casually spaceninja’ing almost daily. (My ign is Polymelodic, since Sayon is always taken in online games. That’s because it’s a quite common male name from Africa. And it also means ‘jacket’ in French…)
