        I guess if everyone is having a good time you should be to
        the same goes for if everyone is sad, you should be to or at least figure out a way to cheer everyone up and not add to the misery or awkwardness

        Shut your mouth and open your ears. Look at how people interact, and try to figure out the underlying psychological mechanics that drive them.

        As an autistic child, nobody ever told me to, "be myself."

        As another autistic child, they told it to me all the time. They also told me to be honest. Then they punished me for being myself and for being honest. Then, when I confronted them about this contradiction, they continued to insist both that I should be myself and be honest, and that I shouldn't behave like I do, and refused to elaborate. The real truth is that ordinary people don't have the faintest clue of what they're doing or why, and you have to think and figure things out for yourself if you want to get anywhere.

          also the story is wrong, everyone in the situation thought the bartender was being funny until they found out he really was being an entitled dickhead about getting tipped so Zach just said "oops sorry lol" and they left. They spent a majority of the story making fun of the guy

    I love Zach's and Chris's gross and weird humor, like when the little guys move all rapidly and crucify the large character, or when the people at the party feast on the forest demon, but when it comes to writing storylines and characters (and trying to insert the South Park-esque lesson of the day) the attempt is just mediocre. For all the shit they'd talk on Sleepycabin I really was moronic enough to think 'Whoa this guys must have the coolest funniest most epic storyboards evarr'

        Of course they're holding back their edge, if you watch their OneyPlays video they always make edgy jokes related to either black people or gay people (Hell, their Cyberpunk video was almost nothing but j¡israelite and israelite dick jokes), they obviously mean no harm but you can't do that on Adult Swim or American adult cartoons in general anymore, even ATHF got one episode banned because of this (banned from the "complete BD collection" that came out last year even)

        I don't entirely buy that. Ever since the Sleepycabin days Zach especially would talk a lot about wanting to write a proper show. And their edginess isn't really that unhinged or non-PC compared to the likes of Cumtown or MDE who are purposefully trying to push buttons.

But on the other, the people talking the loudest about it are the voices I have grown tired of hearing because they represent so few people but they keep talking. And so much of what they say is either patronizing, hate filled or both. So how can they expect everyone else to love at all times if they themselves only offer hate? It becomes an Everybody Sucks Here situation.

    Smiling Friends and shows like it are a result of the current collapse of society. Zach Hadel and the rest of his friend group started off as highly irreverent, angry web animators who ripped anyone they felt like with impunity through violent, profane animations, and mercilessly took down bad actors without ever apologizing. Cut to the same time a decade later, after years of big money, nerd culture gentrifiers, and leftists ruining the internet, and they suddenly decide that they don’t actually need to continue down the path of no-limits creative expression and alienating a bunch of NPCs that would happily trample them on the way to a chocolate bar from the gas station. They stop swearing, stop pissing people off, and “grow up” to the tune of people they idolized in childhood and don’t seem to accept that they could still appreciate their contributions to the art world without having a direct suckup connection with. They stop challenging anyone, sand all their hard angles and put on a nice rosy-cheeked smile for Adult Swim, getting paid big amounts of an imaginary token of commerce while making a show that’s an objective step down from their internet stuff. They even converted to Christianity. Awwww. How heckin’ wholesome.

        You have to be out of your fricking mind if you think that there’s any chance society is going to have a rebuilding period after nearly 100 years of active decline. It’s almost impossible to text this without sounding melodramatic, but society as we know it is a socially construct that was created and actively taped together by people who are probably literally watching me type this. The world is full of fake information, and it’s generally just designed to keep you in a cage through abuse and info deprivation. You need to use some mental effort to work past the boundaries that have been set for you and realize that just because the west seems really successful and is topped by very talented people who really exemplify the human condition, it’s all part of the plan. I don’t really feel the need to prove any of this, though, because you will inevitably come to experience it firsthand at some point in your life whether you believe me now or not.
