RND/ To consider that the general term “I’ve got Boglins in my hat.”
As first stated by Youtube videogame industry commentator Jim Sterling:
Read such as a statement as indicating one can’t help but unapologetically state the truth of the matter; that to ‘have Boglins in one’s hat’ is to speak honestly. As a verb, ‘Hat Boglin’ indicates the undeniable existential urge to plainly express what everyone knows and feels – to wear what is true on one’s head, so to speak. Boglins, commonly viewed as grotesque, are – much like the truth – also shunned by those easily pacified by pretty illusions. To display Boglins on one’s hat is to metaphorically counter falsehoods with a raw, direct ugliness that is beautiful, precisely because it’s based on truth and not lies. Capitalism is indeed bad. Fuck ‘Toxic’ Bobby Kotick. And thank g0d for Jim Sterling.
