Anti-AFD Subway-Breakout

Breakout war ein 1976er Atari-Game, zuerst veröffentlicht als Arcade-Maschine und dann auf so allen System die gibt. Meine Lieblingsversion ist Arkanoid auf'm C64. Rocco und seine Brüder kleben Anti-AFD-Breakout an die Wand der U-Bahn und räumen die rechtsextreme Partei ab, Brick für Brick. Tolle Arbeit!Game Over from Erwin Schmidt on Vimeo.Mehr vom… Gib mir den Rest, Baby!

Freddy Mercury Clone Army Vs. Cyborg Anna From Frozen 💥

More proof that the world has progressed in zero directions since the 2000s as The Digital threw us into regressive mode. I refrain to write "somehow" because actually I think I do know how. As the digitization process only preserves and people do not like creativity and "the new", we became transfixed with the past, arrogant for our superficial sophisticated tools and high on the power that comes with attention because people love seeing shit they already know.

Thus, you are here, watching a popstar from the 70s remixed with a robot from the 80s fighting a giant robot-toy-version of a 2000s animation character and you'd think it's harmless fun, but even the head-on-spider-bot is a clichè, the whole thing nothing but a random collection of trodden paths, not only well known but seen to death, engrained in our collective mind as a synonym for the new mainstream cool, shared by clueless idiots like yours truly and without a doubt, we are heading into a dark age of mindless repetition, our very own version of ready player hell. You absolutely can not pin down this "fun" clip on an era as it could've been done in the 90s, 2000s, the 2010s or the 2020s ahead, it doesn't matter as time is dead and so is culture, the only good thing being it's Freddy Mercury bringing us one tiny step further to our demise. Who else should be the harbinger of sorrow than the coolest of them all.

Good morning. I'm part of this revolution. I am so happy to be alive.
