toonami:

This is a shirt being worn by one of our editors at Adult Swim, Phil. It was created about a decade ago for Adult Swim employees only. It has been misconstrued as being “anti anime,” by some people. Here’s the story: back in the early days of AdultSwim.com’s message boards, there was a vocal minority of posters who passionately hated Adult Swim’s action block, which consisted of several anime shows (some of which were initially slated for Toonami). Our bump writers pulled the phrase “cuz anime is the s uck” from a poster complaining about anime on Adult Swim and ran it as a bump. We chose to make it a t-shirt as a comment on the illiteracy of L33T speak, and internet trolling in general. We wore the shirts as a badge of honor- WE LOVE ANIME, and always will. Adult Swim has been on the air since 2001, and we’ve had a commitment to anime that entire time. We still do. Cus anime is the s uck. ;)

I remember those days.
It was a war. the [adult swim] fans vs. the anime fans.
the anime kids hated the comedy, and the [as] viewers hated the anime.
and if you liked both, you could go to hell.
(I really gotta wonder what those kids would think of Black Lagoon though)
I think that place is what began to sour me on message boards in general (even if i am on reddit…that’s the only place i really go)

… I find it extremely impossible not to cry when I hear Stevie Nicks’s “Landslide,” especially the lyric “I’ve been afraid of changing / ‘cause I’ve built my life around you.” I think a good test to see if a human is actually a robot/android/cylon is to have them listen to this song lyric and study their reaction. If they don’t cry, you should stab them through the heart. You will find a fuse box.

Mindy Kaling, “Is Everyone Hanging out Without Me?” (via starlingwings)

 I actually think you should stab anyone that doesn’t think that song is straight GAWBAGE… .ESPECIALLY if they like the Billy Corgan version.
