A Terrifying Panoply of Human Events

I have not forgotten the ask I received.

I just need to find the time to sit down and think to answer it.

You know what the worst part about Metroid: Other M is? The idea of how the hell a retcon attempt at that (an official one) would go.

"Okay, Samus isn’t really obsessed with a baby and this former commander, that’s silly. She really….um….loved flower arranging! Yeah! But then the mean ol’ Space Pirates came and stomped on all her flowers! So she got some badass power armor and started blowing up all their flower arrangements until the Galactic Alliance started paying her because she was so awesome at it!”

My boyfriend was looking at this and wasn’t sure if Worf was rolling his eyes or almost fainting. XD

"Mister Worf."

"….."

"MISTER WORF!"

"Uh!….I will accept that responsibility."

Whatever you thought of the movie, you have to admit these are a lot of mistakes on Disney’s part

If this tumblr isn’t run by Matt Wilson, I will be shocked.

Her brain is the most dangerous weapon.

So a few days ago, I saw someone arguing that Twilight Sparkle of MLP shouldn’t have the Element of Magic, because this was stupid, but something like Leadership. 

So leaving aside the fact that critiquing a show for young girls for not being the most ideologically consistent is kind of silly (I at least do not remember Transformers having a tight focus on Objectivism as it applies to giant robots), Magic works fine, because to me, Magic is a stand-in for the real element she represents: Knowledge. Sure, unicorns in MLP all have magic to some degree, but Twilight, both before and after the pilot, is clearly studying her ass off to increase her magical knowledge. Spells that used to be a huge effort for her start to become common place. Whatever her role as leader of the group is, she also is the most powerful by far.

But the flip side is that knowledge of your friends is an aspect of friendship. You can be as honest, loyal, generous, kind and playful as you can be, but if you don’t actually know anything about someone, you’re not really a friend, are you? It’s when Twilight Sparkle learns about the ponies that go with her to save the day that they move from just being ‘local color’ to being real characters, both to the audience and to Twilight Sparkle.

So yeah, Magic as an element of friendship doesn’t bother me, both for surface reasons (again, SHOW FOR KIDs, don’t ask it to be more than it’s trying to be), and because it’s not hard to come up with an interpretation that works.

Chris’ gift to me this very fine Christmas is Kotobukiya’s bishoujo Shadowcat statuette.
For now it’s sitting on my computer desk until I can find a place the cats won’t knock it over.

That would be the ISS. Until they get cats up there, anyway.

My buddy Ben and I have just evisioned an episode of Doctor Who where the Doctor teams up with Wu-Tang to fight monsters from Chinese mythology. And we learn Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s death is timelocked.

Call me, Moffat.

I assume The RZA handles the soundtrack.
