I love this joke format so much. The challenge (and absurdity) of summing up famous figures in this dismissive way is really fun, and it leads me to some silly jokes I wouldn’t have otherwise stumbled on, I think.
I’ve written and posted twenty of these damn things, and I’m not going to stop any time soon. I put all the ones posted so far into this collected timeline, so you can catch up.

I’m gonna do this all week. Get ready IRL friends. GET. READY.

A tirade consisting of my Mojang/Minecraft related Tweets

The biggest takeaway from the Mojang sale is in Notch’s letter: being an icon to gamers means either losing yourself or your creation. 

Phil Fish chose to lose his creation and company rather than deal with gamers. Now, Notch is doing the same. That is the smart/right choice.

Until we can fix something at a larger, community level, this toxic “gamer” environment will continue to drive out our best creators.

Minecraft is to many gamers today what Nintendo was to my generation of the 80’s/90’s. And Miyamoto just sold off his Mario & Zelda.

He didn’t sell it for the money. He sold it to escape from us & our community. We need to realize that and address it before we lose others.

As I was sitting in the back of the police car, I remembered the countless times my father came home frustrated or humiliated by the cops when he had done nothing wrong. I felt his shame, his anger, and my own feelings of frustration for existing in a world where I have allowed myself to believe that “authority figures” could control my BEING… my ability to BE!

black privilege….

they literally saw a black woman kissing a white man and ASSUMED SHE WAS A PROSTITUTE. and then they said they were married AND THE COPS FUCKING ASKED FOR ID???? what the fuck? what the fuck? and she said no AND WAS ARRESTED? they need to be fired but God knows that’s not going to happen. LISTEN: she’s an actress. this happened to a producer. even fucking Oprah. no matter what you accomplish as a black person, you are still black and people don’t think their rights apply to you despite the constitution it’s really scaryit’s really infuriatingit’s really exhausting
