robots drink booze specifically to get drunk and socialize at bars
robots have nightclubs and stripclubs and party on down
robots have art and themeparks with rollercoasters
robots aren’t all just default ‘he’: some are women

I am (black/white/indegenious american) My white aquantaince said," You act and speak like a white person, you even study Chemistry. You basically are one." I was so tired that day from finals and stressed about everything I just blurted," I am not trying to downgrade bitch." And just rolled my eyes dramatically and walked off. I normally am not so outspoken but it was just the wrong time and the wrong day.
It’s never a wrong time or day to put white people in their place.
On H.P. Lovecraft’s literature of genealogical terror.
Lovecraft, the ornery, peculiar literary godson of Edgar Allen Poe and Bram Stoker, is widely considered to be the father of the subgenre “weird fiction.” Weird fiction could be placed somewhere between fantasy, horror, and science fiction — a pulpy combination of the three that generally is grounded in the real world. Between 1917 and 1935, he published an almost encyclopedic array of short stories, mostly in the pulp magazine Weird Tales, that grow from general morbid absurdity to dreamtime hyperballads to detailed, collage-like dispatches of our crooked world’s disastrous run-ins with the tentacled elder gods of a vast, highly conceptualized alternate universe. The mythos he created persists to this day in the movies, comic books, novels, video games, RPGs, and, most recently, a Thanksgiving struggle plate that went viral.
That Lovecraft was racist beyond even the excessive racism exhibited by other white writers of his time is not in question. The above paragraph is far from an aberration among his over 100,000 pages of letters, and he populates his fictional universe with slithering, swarthy-faced mongoloids and idiot, infanticidal black men (he almost never wrote about women of any race — an erasure that warrants an essay unto itself). As writer Phenderson Djèlí Clark points out in his excellent essayon Lovecraft, “It’s always perplexing to watch the gymnastics of mental obfuscation that occur as fans of Lovecraft attempt to rationalize his racism.” Responses tend to write off his racism as a product of his times and then be paradoxically surprised that it didn’t hinder his success. “In spite of […] his overt racism,” biographer Donald Tyson tells us, “he created a mythic world that continues to captivate the imagination of millions of readers.” The phrase “in spite of” comes up a lot, as well as allusions to a vaguely presumed-to-be anti-racist, first-person plural that is of course appalled by such bigotry.
So I loved how there was kind of a theme of growth and life in the last part of the episode. Finn’s arm was cut off, but the flower that grew was a sign of hope of new life. The Lich, who is death and evil, was defeated by life. Then he became new life. Finn lost a part of him, and he was completely let down with his dad, but he can still keep living and growing. I really liked the episode and that was just something I notices.
-Parties with powerful magical creatures
-supportive and reasonable about his adoptive brother wanting to find his birth father
-Immediately begins helping in the search for Finn’s father
-helpful on missions when lifting/platforms are required
-Is concerned about Prismo’s well being
-follows his friend into uncharted space
-thought Finn’s father might have been a prisoner but said nothing in order to not hurt him
-politely brings Finn’s father back to the important part of the conversation by again stating Finn is his son
-mentions the shows frequency for having them escape impossible situations with frequency, and then calmly suggests that if he gets blinded he wants Finn to blind himself
-is immediately displeased with Finn’s father treating him so poorly, and keeps a firmly rooted frown
-points out when important things happen
-sees the Lich’s gross transformation and shuts his eyes again
-tells Finn to forget that loser
-try’s to pull back an entire shard with six people on it to save his brother
-tells Finn his dad isn’t worth it
-saves Finn after falling
-does not judge Finn or criticize him after a poor decision, simply comforts his friend
tl;dr: Jake the Dog is precious and a great friend
