What context could justify any of these

Okay friends, I have been slamming my head against this for days and just can’t come up with a quote/motto/slogan thing for this shirt design. It’s weird to ask, but—any ideas?

Those fire pics are freaking me out something awful. Are you and your house gonna be okay? asked by moranion

Sorry to freak you out, but oh mannnn. We should be fine—we have been for many bad fire years. The worst part is seeing the beautiful forests we love destroyed. Weed was such a pretty little mountain town, but lord knows if they’re even going to survive…

Editor’s Note: A few weeks ago our message board and general inbox were bombarded with demands we address something called the “GamerGate Scandal”, posts written with the urgency and rage one would associate with, say, discovering that Chipotle burritos are made entirely from the meat of human babies. It’s apparently a big deal in some circles, so we followed the links and read the piles of data presented, and had to stop and take a deep breath just to grasp it all. “Gentlemen,” we said amid the stunned silence, “do you realize that if what they’re saying is true, then this is still the most pointless fucking bullshit anyone has ever forced us to read?”

The “scandal” turned out to be an excuse for an Internet harassment campaign against a random indie game developer who, like many such targets, was a female and a feminist.

It was all sparked by a single forum post from a jilted ex-boyfriend, but the ensuing outrage was so fierce and relentless that the story made it all the way to The New Yorker. This kind of spontaneous shitstorm is depressingly common these days, so we reached out to Zoe Quinn to see what it’s like to be the Internet’s Most Hated Person (well, for a couple of weeks, anyway). Here’s what she told us.

The Boles fire, 40 miles away, started in the middle of Weed and destroyed 100 homes in a matter of hours. That top pic is the view from just down our road; I want to cry.

Talking Fandom.

"My interest in fandom is born partially out of my own work as a creator and the desire to better understand how fans relate to story worlds on a granular level. It’s a perfect little ecosystem, and in some ways it’s a looking glass version of society at large, both positive and negative. This is the place where the disenfranchised and the marginalized have a voice, where they can express their dissatisfaction with the status quo and demand a more concerted effort by the media establishment to improve diversity, to expand beyond tropes, idioms, and stereotypes.

It’s also somewhere where they become co-creators in a self-directed narrative that might fall out of the bounds of the “intended meaning” of the original creators. Participatory culture and the creation of transformative works is an absolutely fascinating component of this conversation. So far, it’s either been mocked, ignored, or intentionally disparaged, but not many people outside of academia have taken the time to understand the value it provides in terms of how stories are told in the sharing economy.”
