Cartoon Sunday: Foamy The Squirrel Rants About Bullies


How's it going my gumdrops? Yesterday, you may recall that I mentioned last week being rough both on and offline. In regards to cyber space, an Adult Swim poster "peacefully" died in his sleep, during the middle of last week. Some of his friends and other posters have been grieving over his death, whereas some choose to be malicious.

In fact, my number 1 slanderer on Adult Swim went as far as to name drop a racist troll, that he claims the dead poster was supposedly friends with. I don't know if that is really true, considering that it's coming from a slanderous poster, who continues to slander me on Adult Swim. When that dead poster was still alive last year, my slanderer called him "an asshole." Therefore, it's a matter of considering the source, which happens to be a highly glorified slanderer and megalomaniac with a God Complex.

This is along with the fact, that same glorified slanderer continues to down vote troll me and other Adult Swim posters. In case you have NOT already, I suggest reading last year's blog about why you should not join Adult Swim.

Why You Should NOT Join Adult Swim's Message Board

Since we're on the topic of Adult Swim, it has been confirmed that a new Seinen SciFi Action Anime called Dimension W will be replacing Akame ga Kill! on the network.

Toonami's Dimension W Promo (2016)


It will premiere next Saturday at 11:30 pm Central, which is right before Parasyte -The Maxim-. Right now, I cannot comment on Dimension W because I have not watched an episode of the series. However, the promo makes it appear to be interesting.

I just hope this new show is NOT complete hype. Adult Swim is skilled at pandering to a certain group of fans, which are Action Anime fans. I have said it before and will say it again, there is more to Japanese animation than Action Anime.

Hopefully, it's something worth watching because I really do NOT like every Action Anime Adult Swim airs. They have always been a hit or miss, whenever it came to airing shows in general. As of right now, I only know that Dimension W is being simulcasted both in Japan and here in the United States on Adult Swim. The series premiered in Japan on January 10, 2016 and it will premiere on Adult Swim on February 27th.

Since today's blog is mostly about Adult Swim, let's return to a previous topic. Earlier, I mentioned that I was being slandered on Adult Swim's forum by the same poster, who continuously down vote trolls me and shat in a dead poster's memorial thread.

That exact same poster is someone, who pretended to be my friend, when I originally joined Adult Swim nearly 2 years ago.

Last year, that Adult Swim poster was also a member of my website. After I removed him TWICE for lying, backstabbing, selling me out to his crazy so-called "friend" at the time, and getting me banned on Adult Swim, he attacked me through my contact submissions form and made libelous claims about me being another poster he's had problems with in the past.

My frenemy knows it's a bald face lie yet he continues to slander me around Adult Swim.

The worst part is that Adult Swim's moderators condone his trolling and slandering; There's mostly social politics on the network's message board, which is why so many have left. That's not including suicidal posters.

As much as I hate to say it, posters who know the truth and choose NOT to confront him about slandering me are just as guilty as he is. Some do want me to stay on Adult Swim but they don't act like it. If they did, they would show it.

Continuously slandering and anonymously down voting an adult poster on Adult Swim's forum is a perfect example of adult cyber bullying/trolling. Speaking of bullies, I have another Foamy The Squirrel short. In this short, Foamy The Squirrel rants about school bullies and gives unorthodox strategies about how to handle bullying.

It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns' 2nd Birthday: [Q&A Edition]

How's it going my gumdrops? Last week, you may recall that I added 2 of my older Q&A blogs to Blogger.

It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns: Q&A #2


This is my 3rd Q&A blog, that I published several months ago to celebrate It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns' 2nd anniversary. I still haven't decided if I will be doing another Q&A, during the early part of this year.

Even though it's not quite "Throwback Thursday," I have decided to share this 3rd Q&A blog for those who missed it. This Q&A blog was originally published on September 23, 2015.

It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns' 2nd Birthday: [Q&A Edition]

How's it going my gumdrops? Today, It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns turns 2! To celebrate its birthday, I am posting another Q&A blog. I meant to do more Q&A's earlier this year. Because there has been so much chaos on and offline, I haven't really made any time for more Q&A's until now. Anyway, let's get right to some of your questions!

Zombiefied35: When did you decide to create a blog? What do you do, when you're not blogging?

Answer: Shortly after graduating from Carthage College, while battling my own health scare in '06, I created a Yahoo 360 blog.

Sometimes my English Literature professor would use my blogs as another source of information for his Asian Heritage classes, that he taught. If Yahoo would NOT have discontinued Yahoo 360, I would've probably still been there.

In January 2013, I started blogging again except I was on Xanga 1.0. Within 1/2 year, I had about 50 subscribers and growing, until The Xanga Team screwed over everyone. The Xanga Team dumped their money issues into our laps and expected us to donate money to reach 60 grand. 

Otherwise, Xanga would've been shut down. The catch was they would relaunch it as Xanga 2.0 and everyone would be required to pay.

This caused a huge divide among Xangans and most of us went our separate ways.

Before Xanga's shut down and pay to blog relaunch on WordPress, I managed to get 13 of my 50 friends and subscribers to follow me to Blogster. Blogster did seem great. 

That was until I realized that most Blogsterians waste time throwing pissing contests over politics and cliques.  

BTW: Blogster and Adult Swim rival each other with drama except Adult Swim is worse because we have no block features.

Months later, I began learning how to create my own website through Webs by watching YouTube tutorials. This was done, while I was working for my uncle's company. He wanted me to write the content for his website besides the usual requirements.

When I'm not blogging, I'm checking e-mails, notifications on stalkbook, juggling online social interaction, YouTubing, watching TV, watching missed shows on Hulu, etc.

Mimikoko: Which would you prefer to deal with, a zombie apocalypse or an economic collapse, and why?

Answer: Most people don't know that Horror has hidden messages and themes. This especially applies to political themes. I watched a Horror documentary a while ago.

If memory serves me right, zombies represent anarchy and rebellion.

As far as choosing a zombie apocalypse or an economic collapse, I would probably choose the economic collapse.

Having to kill zombies would probably lead to an economic collapse anyway because the world would be left in ruins.

Richard Blazey: Do you own a body pillow of Ichigo Kurosaki from Bleach?

Answer: No, but I wouldn't mind owning a body pillow of Grimmjow Jaggerjack.

Metalheart: How do you stay sane using the Internet? In 20 years, do you think the music industry will look anything like it does today?

Answer: Many times over the last several months to years, I have been told that you must have "thick skin" on the Internet. This is somewhat true to an extent.

Most people use the "having thick skin" statement as a justification for why they can be maggot pieces of shit on the ground to whoever they want, whenever they want.

Luckily for me, most websites I'm on have block features except Adult Swim. Sooner or later, I will post a blog about the differences between using social media sites and forums.

The best solution is to NOT give the haters what they want so badly. They want you to lose your cool so that they can play the victim card and paint you as the villain.

Meanwhile, I fear for the entertainment industry, especially when it comes to music. Self-righteous "political activists" have really been "trendy" these last 11 years. It's the main reason why I quit hosting my radio show in 2004.

To make matters worse, I am worried that there will be more dumbed down songs, that are worse than the talking fox. I believe that entertainment will become more dumbed down than it is, right now.

Anonymous Question: Do you regret joining Adult Swim?

Answer: Yes. Even though I managed to surprisingly make some friends, I CANNOT help regretting my decision to join Adult Swim's message board.

I do NOT hate everyone on ASMB. Although, I'm really disgusted with the fact, that someone I really valued, trusted, and considered to be a so-called "friend" was very quick to lie, backstab, set me up, sell me out, and slander me for his own cheap thrills. 

This is besides him guilt tripping me into staying on a cartoon message board only to be used as a means to an end.

Russ' Questions:

1) Do you have any tattoos? Yes or no? Why?

2) What are your thoughts about tattoos on dark skinned people? Yes or no? Why?

Answers: No, I don't have any tattoos. I used to want them, when I was younger. I don't have any because I hate needles, tattooists don't always sterilize their needles, and tattoos have become too "trendy."

By the time I became a college student, nerds and preppie trust fund-brats had them. They were mostly people trying to prove, that they were "cool." Ugh!

I believe that tattoos really aren't as cool anymore because tattooing has been overdone.

Some of my nurses have tattoos, including Tramp Stamps.

3) LA now has a law that condoms must be used, while filming porn. What are your thoughts?

Answer: Considering that HIV and AIDS have existed for the last 3 decades, porn stars should've been using condoms, anyway. This is especially when they're having sex with multiple people.

IsolateX's Questions:

1) What method did you choose to learn Japanese?

Answer: I started learning Japanese in middle school, during 1995 at 12 years old. I took the language, throughout 7th-12th grade. By the time I was 20 years old, I started taking Japanese again and earned my degree in Asian Studies with an emphasis on the Japanese language.

I wanted to be a Japanese Consecutive Translator. If I wasn't battling a health scare before, during, and after graduating from Carthage College, I might have been able to study abroad at Tokyo University like I was supposed to do before graduating.

2) What influences the type of music you choose to listen to?

Answer: It really all depends on my mood at the time. When I was a teenager and in my 20's, I listened to more Metal because I was always angry. I was a lot angrier as a teenager. Metal was always for my own catharsis. Now, if I'm really stressed out, sometimes I relax by listening to Enya.

3) Do you have any artwork that you could display? That is if you've dabbled.

Answer: I do have some of my artwork, but most of it is somewhere in storage. If you ever have the opportunity, you should try experimenting with watercolor painting.

4) What is your ethnicity?

Answer: I am English, Irish, Italian, Australian, American Indian, Asian Indian, Arabian, African, French, Polish, etc. There's so many, I don't know the rest. 

Just to let all my gumdrops know, there were a few more extra questions, that I never answered. Lately, I've been trying to decide if I should answer at least 1 or more of your questions in a blog regularly. These were some great questions.

Before I forget, I posted another blog on Blogger about fall shows, that I normally watch. In case you missed that blog, click on the link below.

Why You Should NOT Join Adult Swim's Message Board



How's it going my gumdrops? I meant to post another blog on Blogger much sooner, but I have been extremely busy with my own website, It's Not All Gumdrops & Unicorns. This is along with juggling my online presence on several other sites. Adult Swim is only naming 1 example.

Most of my friends/subscribers on facebook, Blogster, and Horror-Punks already know, that I have been a poster on Adult Swim, since last August. Some have considered joining and I said, "No! You will regret it." You may be sitting down, scratching your head, and asking "Why not?" Here are some questions you should ask yourself before considering Adult Swim:

Do you like...

  • walking on eggshells?
  • being treated like a criminal? 
  • being accused of being a troll? 
  • being psychoanalyzed to pieces?
  • being treated like a verbal punching bag?
  • being politically correct every nano second? 
  • getting rape and death threats? 
  • constantly looking over your shoulder?
  • people insulting every show or movie you enjoy?
  • political oppression, oppression in general, and censorship?
  • whenever people always feel the need to put you in your place?
  • the thought of always being banned every time you defend yourself against assholes and trolls? 
  • Did you enjoy being an outcast in high school?

If you answered no to at least 1 of these questions, you should not join Adult Swim's message board. There are SOME nice posters. However, there are also shitty posters. These are the following reasons why you should not join Adult Swim:


Reasons Why You Should NOT Join Adult Swim's Message Board:

* No Blocking- Adult Swim doesn't have a block feature. Most blogging and social media sites have a "Block" button, which makes it easier for assholes and trolls to appear as "invisible" on your screen. Adult Swim does have an "Ignore" button. Too bad it no longer works because there are assholes I would personally LOVE to block.

* Hijacking- The topic of the thread doesn't matter. Regardless if it's a positive or negative thread, assholes and trolls love hijacking another poster's thread. The hijacking is usually done to create arguments and sometimes to spout death threats. I've gotten a few death threats by a skanky, narcissistic sociopath.

* Terrible Communications/Social Skills- The remaining veteran Adult Swim posters highly lack social skills; They don't know how to socialize or communicate. Their idea of socializing is being verbally abusive towards other posters.

* Begrudgment- Some posters are quick to begrudge other posters for their success. Some have an inferiority complex and are close-minded to anyone the moment they assume that other poster(s) believes he/she is superior to everyone else because of his/her accomplishments. This most definitely applies towards website and business owners. 

Rather than taking action and improving their own lives, some posters would rather demonize and ostracize another poster. In a nutshell, they are "haters." Most Adult Swim posters dislike business owners and love demonizing them because they were brainwashed to hate businesses in general by the media. 

Then again, Adult Swim is a brother network of CNN.

* Game Of Cliques/Alliances- Some veteran posters play both sides of cliques. I always love whenever a friend is in the center of 2 friends, who dislike each other. The friend in the middle will pretend to be "neutral," even though he/she already decided who's side to be on. This usually leads to ostracizing the other so-called "friend."

* The Blame Game- Some remaining veteran posters are quick to play The Blame Game. Rather than accepting their own faults, Adult Swim posters only want to blame 1 or a few other posters for their own problems, that they helped create. Most of them are their own worst enemies yet they still love finger pointing.

* Pissing Contests- The remaining veteran posters regularly hold pissing contests over politics and cartoon ratings in the most active sections of the site. 2 of the most active sections are Babbling and Toonami. Adult Swim's message board mostly consists of grown men fighting over politics like they are on CNN. Otherwise, there are Toonami Tards fighting over Shonen Jump Action Anime ratings rather than sitting down and enjoying their favorite Anime. Some of them have severe mental and behavioral problems and love wreaking havoc for other posters.

* Persecution- Veteran posters are usually quick to persecute new posters and assume they are recurring male trolls. I joined Adult Swim last August. In all my years of being an Internet user, I have never felt so unwelcome to ANY site. That was until I joined Adult Swim. 

I currently belong to several other websites. As toxic as some of those sites can be, at least new posters aren't treated like an inconvenience, if not a criminal.  

Adult Swim's message board makes other websites look like a trip to Disneyland. 

* Crooked Moderation- The moderators treat posters like an inconvenience rather than solving the problems. In order to cope with racism, misogyny, rape/death threats, and trolling in general, posters have to either ignore it, or jump ship. Adult Swim's moderators are the equivalent of cops, that turn blind eyes to the corruption. Instead of moderators enforcing Adult Swim's board rules, posters get a slap on the wrist for bad behavior by only getting temporary bans. Otherwise, there is a double standard and the moderators will justify it. 

* Multiple Identities- The remaining veteran posters create different poster names out of sheer boredom. I still don't understand the point of randomly creating multiple accounts, when they haven't been banned UNLESS it is to only rig polls and troll other posters. They really do rig polls and troll in aliases.

* Censorship- Adult Swim is a HIGHLY censored message board. Even though the network has "Adult" in its title and posters literally have their own dick pics floating around in cyber space, the message board and its programming are highly censored. People only preach about Freedom Of Speech, whenever it's convenient. 

All the while, those same Adult Swim posters are oppressive of others. Most posters can dish it out, but can't take it. They'll be quick to lecture someone about not being "politically correct," when they're not exactly the most respectful of anybody. I spend more time walking on eggshells for Adult Swim posters than anywhere on and offline. 

There are business meetings and sports bras, that are more comfortable and entertaining than posting on Adult Swim. I can only imagine some Adult Swim posters going on dates and being as boring as watching paint dry. Or as uptight and uncomfortable as a Super Wedgy.

* Turnover Rate- Adult Swim has a high turnover rate with posters. Most veterans grew tired of the negativity on the site and left. This is especially when it is impossible to have a fun thread meant for everyone. At least 1 asshole hijacks it only to start fights with another poster(s). This depends on whether the fight is with the creator of the thread, or someone else in it.

* Suicide Rate- Adult Swim has a suicide rate among posters. Before and during the time I joined the forum, there was already a history of some veteran posters being suicidal and committing suicide.  

I don't have an actual percentage. However, there were at least a handful. 

Some of those same suicidal posters threaten to commit suicide today.

* Social Networking Abuse- Some veteran posters treat Adult Swim's forum like it's their personal facebook status update. There is at least 1 morally corrupt/narcissistic sociopathic poster, who uses Adult Swim's forum like she's on facebook.  

She brags about all the Johns she's met and had sex with via Tinder.

* Limited & Opportunistic Humor- Some remaining veteran posters lack a sense of humor UNLESS they're trolling other posters. Adult Swim posters mostly revel in acting like rude, belligerent, chastising, and self-righteous trolls. Putting each other in their places mostly amuses them and their colluding friends. 1/2 remaining posters no longer watch shows on Adult Swim. Although, they will nit pick and psychoanalyze plots and characters to pieces.

* Cyber Ghost Town- Adult Swim's forum is on life support. Sane people should NOT join the site because the remaining posters already want to leave it or witness the shutdown. Most sane people don't have the time, energy, and patience to deal with grown men and their childish antics, while simultaneously lecturing other posters about being "politically correct" and arguing over shows. 

Ask yourself, "Why is the divorce rate constantly soaring?" If you say, "It's because people don't have time for bullshit," apply that same answer to Adult Swim's message board.

All in all, it's much better to remain an Adult Swim viewer than being a poster. Most of the regulars waste time nit picking and finger pointing at everything and everyone. Do NOT join Adult Swim. If you do, you will regret it even more because you CANNOT delete your account.
