turn any poem into a steve roggenbuck poem: this is a good & funy idea.. this generator by adam holwerda can “translate” thing’s into “steve rogenbuck style.” the misspelings are actually prety accurate i feel. of course my true style goes deeper than that, i feel the results could still be skewed in more drastic ways and it would be fun.. i would like to see it insert extra fricks, yolos, and boosts at random intervals maybe haha.. or whole lines from my actual poems.. idk hehe. anyway check it out here :)
In-app (fight for) purchase
What if headphones
Helped you listen better
Instead of hiding you
I got an app notification that said
Someone next to you needs a hug
So I hugged the five people next to me
Remembering that each of these is a lonely sad animal
Dealing with the conflicts between logic and biology
Between society and the need to feel a part of _____
Apart from moments like that
Things are pretty depressing
Probably even for you

Bo Burnham - Sad
This is one of my favorite people and my own personal American Idol.
There is no “feminist quota” you’re fulfilling that lets you be mysoginistic
Like you can’t go twenty three hours “thinking women are people” and five minutes of “joking about bitches” and feel like you’re doing your part.
Really? The rape joke is really in your top two minutes of funniest shit you have to say?
Non-comedians: This is applicable to you too. The shit you laugh at because you’re uncomfortable isn’t making it go away, it’s ensuring it continues. You don’t think something is funny? Don’t laugh. (And yeah, I’m serious, even though I know it’s like really offensive to comedians for a comic to tell someone not to laugh. Idgaf.)
Oh, I know I have it better than a lot of would-be comics buyers, and that’s what worries me. I’ve had it with the self-appointed gatekeepers in comics.
This makes me really sad. There are so many good comic shops out there. I work for one! I’ve visited dozens! It’s the reason I started the Valkyries, the reason I promote Ladies’ Nights. This shouldn’t be a thing, and it still is. Nerds get into comics so often because they want a safe space, then make it into an elitist club. I hate that! It should be welcoming and friendly.
At the same time, I’ve had this experience. I always get really snarky. I want to say, “Hey assholes, I wrote a book for Adventure Time. I also run a society for women who WORK in comic shops that has more members than first gen pokemon” but I don’t, because, well, I’m not a jerk. The temptation is there, all the same.
I’m spoiled by my shop, I guess. This is a real shame.
REGARDING MY CONTROVERSIAL LAST POST
@lifeofbk HOW dare you question the methods. Oh well, now you too can be an app-screenshot-edit-screenshot-edit-post MASTER!!!! It was a screenshot of an app, that I screenshotted again instead of posting to Tumblr (now I know my poem has my name on it), then did filters and drew on that screenshotted screenshot (now I know my poem is ugly and bad), and POSTED IT.
So use me.
