Fuck it, it’s 1:49 in the morning where I live, I haven’t slept soundly in weeks because of this fucking death spiral of democracy of an election Australia’s going through right now, and I don’t want Tony Abbott to win but deep within my frostbitten metal heart I know that not only there’s a possibility my countrymen and women might be dumb enough to elect him (though I haven’t properly gone outside in weeks to find out if that’s the case) but also that no matter how much HAAAATE from the blackened, bitter scorched depths of my clinically depressed soul I throw at this dude, it might never be enough to save us all from his tyranny.
I’m clinically depressed, I’m going through a university degree on sheer inertia alone rather than actual enthusiasm even though theoretically I should love the subjects I’m doing, I’m just this broken fucking wagon with rickety wheels hurtling towards this uncertain destination that I just KNOW is gonna be horrible. Love life and romance? I barely understand how to process those things, my brain only understands depression, misery, and the blood of my fucking political enemies that I don’t even have the agency, or the ability to spill, because broadswords are hard to find these days and the bodyguards these arsemanglers who call themselves politicians have superior firepower than any of us. My vote is the only lethal weapon I have, and even that won’t go that far as much as I can tell.
There’s no real point about me confessing any sexy fun fetishes I have on this site that I barely understand how it works, because the format is so strange and alien to me, but all I know is that while the endless stream of nudity is fun at times there’s no point in me even thinking about sex or fetishes, because I’m never gonna be able to indulge any of them because no woman will ever find me attractive, or worse, the women who I find attractive won’t find me attractive and they live in other fucking countries far less racist than my own, or at least they have more politically engaged people who could prevent the fucking downfall of my own fucking country that I’m drowning in despair over as I watch it descend into madness and death.
I’m not even gonna kill myself either, because if there isn’t an afterlife like I hope there is because my current existence is so fucking bleak, I’m even more fucked and alone than I already am and my attempt to end my misery and despair will have achieved nothing. All I have in this world, is my ability to write books, and absorb wide ranges of media in a short space of time. It pains me that I can’t draw half as well as I can write, because apparently we live in a visual culture where the ability to write has far less value than the ability to draw, and in my fucking depressed mental state I’m starting to see why, I don’t know about you but the ability to draw something with your hands seems a lot more impressive than just bashing out words on a keyboard, which nobody will fucking read because it’s too long or boring to consider. At least artists who can fucking draw are respected for what they do, they have fans, more fans than I’ll ever have because at least when you get broke you can draw smut and earn some money, the best I can do is DESCRIBE a sex scene in graphic detail, and even if you’re the woman who inflicted Fifty Shades Of Grey on the world you have to admit it’s just not as impressive, or maybe it is, my brain has been just so worn down I can barely pick up any book I would love, because I’ve been so deprived of fucking sleep and rest and I’ve been harassed by society, my University demands, and my own fucking parents who barely understand why my yelling at them which is completely out of fucking character for me, might be a warning sign that they should get me some fucking help. I’m not even drunk right now, this shit just got real, this is the ramblings of pure insomnia, you can’t buy this shit in stores, you can’t find a dealer on the street who’d sell this to you it’s so potent, pure, great and terrible, I don’t even know what the street value would be, I imagine it would cost a lot.
I’m just gonna put this here and see if anybody at all responds to this mental breakdown at 2:06 am in the morning, I’ll probably regret posting this in the first place and be embarrassed when I wake up, if I get to fucking sleep at all tonight, but I need to know somebody fucking cares.
Can we just admit to ourselves, as a country, that Tony Abbott is pretty much this guy if he was real? I mean, he’s a xenophobic zealot who comes off as a creeper when the back of women’s heads are involved, he pretends to care about disabled people but secretly he’s plotting against them, he refuses to give refugees/minorities sanctuary, and he makes really creepy comments about women that come off a bit intense.
Signal boost for Australian Election Memes by the way.
"POC can’t be in fantasy stories, they weren’t around in those areas back then. its just not accurate."
"POC aren’t in sci-fi stories because there probably won’t be a lot of them in the future yknow?"
Like white people expect to still be the majority in the future.
It’s sad that Ralph Bakshi, a white Jewish animator who’s kinda bad at writing women, still has more POC characters in his films than 99% of mainstream Hollywood cinema. Now I know they’re often drawn in a stereotypical way, nobody’s arguing he’s pre-Tumblr in every sense of the word. Yet I think “pulling a Bakshi” with putting a bunch of POC characters in your movie written by white people is still a good idea. Especially when it’s been 30 years since Heavy Traffic came out and the problematic elements of the Bakshi formula can be ironed out and made better. There is a way. I mean, I’m a white dude and I know I’m not gonna be an old man in a world where white people would be the majority, I just accepted this and sit back while the old white men that make people like me look bad ruin our reputation while I scream at them on Twitter hoping the asylum seekers of the future forgive my impotent generation for having no real power to stop these borderline despotic arsemanglers. And honestly I think the asylum seekers my Australian prime minister and his opposition leader keep tossing into a sea probably would be an improvement over what leaders we have. 2050 will come along, and the goat meat industry here’s gonna be rad. It’s probably gonna be easier to terraform the desert for farmland Halal butchers will build their fortunes on than it will be to transform Mars into a Space Gondola Planet like in that anime ARIA. We’ll get there. Especially when Australia might be a racist country but we have actual Indigenous people in our Aborigine character based movies. Beat that, Lone Ranger.
I swear the Australian Christian Lobby and the Oz Internet filter are like that zombie dugong from the movie Long Weekend that just won’t die no matter how many bullets you plant in its rotting carcass or how far you run from the madness.

Copyright laws for Australians this dumb don’t deserve to be obeyed. That entire list makes me want to smash the toes of the entire MPAA and RIAA, and then do the same to Australian lobbyists who allowed this madness to continue.
The Jaegers of Pacific Rim. I can’t wait for this movie to come out.
Australia has a giant robot. I’ll let that sink in.
AUSTRALIA HAS THEIR OWN GIANT ROBOT.
And it’s gonna tear our cultural cringe limb from limb!
Think about it, when it comes to Australian politics, Tony Abbott is totally Thulsa Doom.
He’ll burn down your village to prove he is your master, and sell your children into slavery on the Wheel of Pain until the day they die in the name of economic bean counting. Our generation’s story will be a tale of sorrow if he’s elected.
And like Thulsa Doom, Tony Abbott should be decapitated by a muscled Austrian man and his head thrown down the stairs in front of everyone to show them their freedom. Yeah I said it.
Julia Gillard is still the Labor leader, which means everyone fed up with her is going to vote in Abbott. The problem is that Abbott is going to take the government backwards by at least 35 years. He’s a sexist, misogynistic, homophobic piece of crap who doesn’t give half a crap about respect to the original custodians of Australia. I’d rather drink half a litre of bleach than see this asshole rule the country.
Also, budgie smugglers. Eeeeeww.
Tony Abbott may be awful, but let’s not forget that he’s also incompetent. Julia Gillard may *seem* unpopular, but compared to Tony Abbott’s devoid sense of political savvy she’s the Queen Of Dragons from Game Of Thrones.
KRudd was just Tintin compared to her, and as we all know, Tintin is knocked out easily by cloroform. Julia is *unpopular* to the mainstream media, but as long as Australian voters don’t live in a police state we’re still the only factor that matters.
Even if Abbott does get elected, the toxic political climate he created will get him knifed perhaps almost immediately. Also Australia has survived the likes of John Howard. As a continent that somehow has human cities on it despite hell spawned wildlife and an unforgiving desert, I think the Australian people are gonna hold out. Starbucks couldn’t survive in Australia.
Fucking Starbucks, the scourge of independent coffee drinking America, couldn’t hold out. You honestly believe given the outright brutal philosophy of a knife Tony Abbott created in Australian politics he’ll last more than a week in power without some other dude stabbing him and grabbing leadership?
Surely you jest. A little diabolical optimism wouldn’t go amiss.
