i think one major flaw in the narrative constructed in that essay is that it assumes the democrat and republican party platforms haven't changed over time. both parties have moved quite a ways to the right over the decades in question, and the makeup of their constituent bases changed as well.
i definitely think irrationality and demonization of the other plays a massive and important role in the current state of american and global politics, but i also think identifying it as the problem rather than a symptom with many contributing factors is a dangerous oversimplification.

i like David Harvey's Anti-Capitalist Chronicles for talky bits, and the Random Movement podcast and the Hospital Records podcast for tunes. actually i used to do a tunes podcast myself but vocal dysphoria is a thing and also it turns out it's a lot of work to get 2 hours of fresh beats a week when you have a day job
i thought monthly girls nozaki-kun was good
oh haha i should have read further down
are they bankrupt / closing? i got cranky with korg for discontinuing their drm servers and making my bought-and-paid-for soft synths useless, but i would hate to see them close entirely.
i think the bad part about this whole situation is something dan olson described pretty well in his video on the topic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LuScIN4emyo
which is that the way youtube has handled the situation is calculated to place maximal responsibility and effort on the part of individual channels rather than on the infrastructure
i'm glad to see that i'm not the only person who played through all the endings of WOTS

this is pretty interesting. some are definitely more convincing than others. a couple even resembled people i have known. kind of uncanny...
