This ‘Starcoon’ thing was really the absolute bottom of the barrel, even for Kotaku.
It was the pinnacle of generating controversy for clicks. A game about a raccoon in space called ‘Starcoon’ is bitched about Kotaku because the name has the word ‘coon’ in it, presumably because Kotaku is not aware that ‘racoon’ is an animal that exists. So they write several articles and eventually bully the creators into changing the name purely out of controversy they generated for pageviews. They then try to justify it with this shitty article trying to compare it to the redskins, even though the redskins have a racist caricature as their mascot and are clearly named after a slur for indians and Starcoon is about a fucking raccoon in space.
That is Kotaku having a direct, negative effect on other human beings purely so they can pull in pageviews and get ad revenue. It’s the perfect example of why Kotaku is shit, why everyone who writes for them is ignorant at best and human garbage at worst, and why the website along with every other website on the Gawker Media Network need to be expunged from creation and all their contributors blacklisted from every writing for anything ever again.
So I finally put together a demo reel today. Life after school has officially begun.
What I think of every time I hear a girl say Benedict Cumberbatch is hot.
Mel went a little nuts with the Instagram last night.
Also, I should probably introduce my girlfriend, Pauline.
My tumblog turned 5 today! What did you guys get me?
