Will Communism Win? MCM London May 2018

I went to MCM London at the end of May to wade through the decadent capitalism, explore the compelling masters of social capital at the Creatorscape, and once again ask… will communism win?

Fantastic music by Matias Spina.

Pong – A Secret Communist Propaganda Video Game?

Pong; it was the first commercially-successful video game and a universally-known arcade classic. But is there more than meets the eye? Is Pong… subliminal communist propaganda?

Come with me on a journey of subterfuge and conspiracy to find out!

YOUR FAVE IS COMMUNISTIC – Ep.2: DA:I’s Solas (Ft. Alice Bell)

In this episode of Your Fave is Communistic, I try to convince games journalist Alice Bell that Solas from Dragon Age: Inquisition is a Communist, in what I think is some of my finest work yet.

Thoughts in the Wake of Launching Jaffameister TV

Months of planning, re-planning, designs, redesigns, shoots, re-shoots… but it finally got filmed, edited, and published.

Jaffameister TV grew from various trailing concepts into the answer to one question: “Wouldn’t it be a bit funny if I took this brand that I have and make videos with it while assuming the role of a zealous propaganda news anchor?”

For those of you not quite in the loop, I’m a Communist. Shocking, I know. I am, however, not the Stalin-loving, Authoritarian-state, Lenin-was-a-shining-golden-god kind of Communist stereotype often attributed to the Marxist-Leninist movement (sometimes unfairly.)

But then it dawned on me: what if I play the character of a Stalin-loving, Authoritarian-state, Lenin-was-a-shining-golden-god kind of Communist stereotype, for a bit of self-satirical introspection and because it might be a bit funny?

That’s how my brand, of propaganda poster-inspired aesthetics and adamant Communist assertion, came about. And it sorta just stuck, for better or for worse. Jaffameister TV is a continuation of the big joke that I’ve built around myself, to a degree far higher.

And thus far it’s been well-received! Which I can’t say how relieved I am about. It’s been a lot of work to get the ball rolling on the project, and I’ve had a lot of anxiety in the time leading up to its launch. But a lot of it has been quelled seeing how many people are excited for more.

So stick around comrades, and stay tuned for the next broadcast from Jaffameister TV.

[This is a disclaimer that I’ll be adding as a footnote to all of my work from now on: any nonsensical connections made between video games and Communist themes, zealous and self-righteous dictator-esque behaviors, and perceived support and/or apologism of oppressive regimes like the Soviet Union are purely instances of self-satire as a means of comical introspection, and in some cases have no basis in truth or personal belief.]
