I LOVE the HST gonzo rant "you isolate yourself after extensive exercise....if properly horrified however, hit publish immediately..." !!

Also THANK YOU for sharing awesome AMV. IMO the best AMV capture the refined essence of hours of film. Here's some of my favorites:

Akira AMV All Limiters Off https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMUAwsxR-dQ - Is it just me, or does this make more sense than the movie?

Paradelous - Maverick Hunter https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NuHozLGduKA - Redline was made for AMV.

Perturbator - Venger https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WbnHutA1u_0 - desperate Bladerunner cyberpunk mood.

Dirty Paws - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w7Sgg5nF1q4 - If ever a song was esoterically meant to soundtrack Princess Mononoke, this must be it.

Wind See's you Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkea1hcbDxc - See?? Ghibli's not just fuzzy animals

And in case your open mouth hasn't torn out your face yet: Lorn Sega Sunset https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mauV2NdCs60

Thanks for the links! Love Bailey podcast. I was on the second episode years back, about architecture.

As for the death of literature, pretty sure techno-commercial developments wrt how we consume words and other "content" has more to do with it.

How are you writing this fast?

I noticed my friend CovfefeAnon retweeting you, and a lot of your content has been great. You have exploded onto the FrogTwitter scene very fast and I congratulate you for your success.

I'm wondering what your routine is and how many hours it takes you to write these long 10k word articles.

Excellent work, hope it continues to be well received.

Hey, I'm super happy I found your writing -- you're talented. You also are good at the marketing part (I'm guessing you have some background in this?).

Now that you're starting to get more traction, are you happy to be going the more 'anon' route? Was it an obvious choice for you? I want to do more writing in this format and of similar topics and I'm debating going anon or not. I'm self-employed, and I live outside of America now, so I'm less worried about 'cancellation.' But still, I'm fully aware there may be consequences that I'm not considering.

Do you have any thoughts on the topic you'd be willing to share?

Jeff Nobbs was just pretending to be a blogger while seeking VC funding because VCs like that. Once sucking up to elite VCs was going well, he revealed he didn't care about his audience or about writing, he stopped responding to his audience, and he started breaking promises he'd made like finishing multi-post series. He is biased and his info can't be trusted; he only cares about selling cultured oil. Some of what he says is true anyway but everything has to be checked independently before it should be believed. He is not culturally a blogger; he is an elite who won't talk to the masses who pretended to be a blogger for a little while.
