FUCKING ROLE MODEL
I read this book and I learned Hayao basically hated drawing every single picture in it.
I actually really miss the old days of the fandom. Not because “Ugh fandom isn’t da same” I mean my own experience with the MLP fandom.
I miss the days of the IbringdaLULZ livestream, I miss Lulz, I miss Sickness, Hagen, Temporal Walker, SoaringFlight, Wubz, Pipsqueak, Phantombadger, Citrus.
And a lot of you will say “hey you can still talk to these people right, I mean you still know Temporal Walker and Phantombadger right? I mean the latter follows you.” well yes. I guess so. but the community feel from back then was just fantastic. Could just be me remembering things stupidly but it felt simpler back then. I was just starting to do art, I met a lot of great people, had a lot of fun. Nowadays I just feel detached from everyone as they find new people to talk to, I do too. I guess it’s just a reminder not everything lasts forever.
Except Lulz’s hiatus’s
Honestly yeah, I miss it a lot too. It felt like people actually cared about me and what I had to say and what I created. We all knew each other and we all knew what we were about back in that stream.
I remember I once streamed for 11 hours straight and I still to this day do not feel like it was a waste of my time. I think about it a lot. I dunno if I would even want to stream anymore because I KNOW it would never be like it was.
But, time marches on as it were.
Just out of curiosity, what was explainablechaos’ username in the stream chat?
So I found this harlequin romance paperback today, and normally I just toss those right over without paying them much mind, but the cover of this one made me pause. Sure that the artist was just taking liberties, I checked out the back.
I’m dubious. I should read a passage:
It is a literal bear.
Okay yeah I’ll admit it I’m going to read this but only because it sounds like the most fucked up romance novel in existence.
You have some explaining to do, Canada.
You guys don’t understand. Screw it being a bestseller, 50 Shades of Gray is a bestseller, this book won the Governor General’s Award. That’s the highest literary award in Canada. That’s the pulitzer prize of Canadian literature. Bear is a part of Canadian literary history.
i had to read this book in uni for my first year Canadian literature class. When we first heard of it we were like, “Oh the Bear’s a metaphor or some shit.” but then one kid read ahead, and was like, “Guys, no, she literally fucks the bear. She fucked a bear.”
Are you sure it wasn’t the Governor Genitals Award?
I just can’t stop thinking about big, furry, asymmetrical balls now.
