    I’ve given this a couple listens and it’s ok so far. Not an instant classic or anything, but it’s ok. I could see it growing on me over time. You can definitely tell this was cut from Vaxis 2 just by the instrumentation. I wonder if they finally cleared up some licensing issues with WB which is why we get an actual release of Deranged.

    My main gripe with the song is the “I can be your joke tonight” motif. It’s just so similar to Toys and some of the other recent lines. Doesn’t really hit that hard and feels repetitive from a discography perspective more than just like the line is used too much in the song

  • This drives me up the wall. Any time I point this out, the AI fanboys are so quick to say “well, that’s v3.x. If you try on 4.x it’s actually much better.” Like, sure it is. These things are really good at sounding like they know what they’re talking about, but they will just lie. Especially any time numbers or math are involved. I’ve had a chat bot tell me things like 10+3=15. And like you pointed out, if you call it out, it always says “oh my bad” and then just lies some more or doubles down. It would be cool if they could be used to teach things, but I’ve tried it for learning the rules to games, but it will just lie and fill in important numbers with other, similar numbers and present it as completely factual. So if I ever used it for something I truly didn’t know about, I wouldn’t be able to trust anything it said

    I would honestly recommend sports anime like Haikyuu or Prince of Tennis for this kind of thing. Sports anime always lean really hard into the mental game and you’ll have whole scenes playing out in freeze frame or slow-mo while characters painstakingly walk through their plans. I’m a sucker for that kind of thing

  • Me: “Is this Big O?”

    It is.

    I always loved the mystery that this show managed to capture when I was a kid. Especially catching an episode here or there on cable TV. It often meant missing key plot points or not understanding how everything fit together. Watched it through as an adult and I still really like it. I won’t spoil the ending, but it’s one of the most ridiculous things I’ve seen. Not that it’s over the top, but the absurdity of it is something I still reference to this day.

    Also the phone ringing to tell you the name of the next episode is burned into my brain

  • Well the returns he gets are the views on his videos. People love to watch people fight to survive. So he pits them against each other in order to draw eyes (and therefore advertisers) while positioning himself as a “humanitarian” making “donations” out of the goodness of his heart. Obviously it’s working because his wealth is growing, not shrinking. That’s part of what I think makes it “evil” in OP’s eyes. If you’re profiting off of it, is it really charitable?

    Edit: Oh wait, I can’t read. I see what you are saying. Disregard the above. I think you and I agree there. I don’t think it would be easy for him to just give all his money away for free because then it would be gone and people would still be poor

    I’m just trying to play devil’s advocate
