friendlytroll said: And yet the wierd thing is, when i read stuff by the same author that tries to take it’s self more seriously, I just wind up super disgruntled and bored. More kung fu mafia pizza, please.

I tried to read Cryptonomicon once and just gave up 90 pages in.  I don’t care that much about how codes and math work.  I just do not.

I did actually like Anathem and I really liked The Diamond Age, which if you turn your head and squint, you can pretend is a Snow Crash sequel.  There is a character who is a possibly thinly veiled older Y.T. as a mentor figure.  And I started the Mongoliad at some point and just walked away like ten pages in.

(I’m from a family with multiple members who really love Neal Stephenson and I feel like I have to attempt to read this stuff.)

Ahhh, I think Diamond Age is the one that turned me off the attempt. I think that was it? The one with the virtual reality book thing… I can see the appeal, but it all just felt super pretentious to me. Theres only so much pathos you can pile onto a character before I begin to call foul. 

I care a lot more about the big crazed cool… every day ness. I like scenes set in a street of a completely average place in a completely bizarre setting! Once it gets moralistic or, indeed, wayyy to into the details of sci-fi-NESS, my patience goes short. Maybe it’s just that I like stories to have an edge of humor to them? 

Still! Hard to put down a book where theres a to the death pizza delivery scene. 

PLEASE TAG NEW STEVEN UNIVERSE EP CONTENT

I have had literally not a single day off since monday, and have been way too tired to be ready to watch something new. Even if it’s not a SPOILER please use a ‘steven universe spoiler’ tag. I really really want to watch the new eps unspoiled. 

And YES even ‘x’ new character is my waiu or such counts. :/

whethervane asked:

for the OC thing: Who Framed Roger Rabbit! OR, Homestar Runner?

….you’re a tricky devil sometimes, you know that?

In both cases I think these are cases where I’ve liked them SO long that any OC’s I have had- AND I AM SURE I DID- are lost to the vague annals of embarrassing child memory. But I DO remember weird ancient fanfic ideas for both so I’ll offer those instead. 

For Roger Rabbit, I still remember a story idea of like, someone making a Toon BASED on Eddie Valiant like in a ‘cartoons vaugely based on X famous figure’ way? BC on some level I like the wierd uncertainty about how toons are ‘made’ in that universe. 

For Homestar Runner I think I spent most of the middle of my highschool years thinkin’ about how homestar runner and strong bad should kiss? I’m having trouble remembering anything cohesive but I was and remain convinced that Homestar Runner might just live at strongbads house most/some of the time. Like, i think the room/front we see thats ‘Homestars House’ is just a different exit on the brothers Strong household. 

I’m wierd. 

Considering how many ocs I make to myself as stress relief you could probably name anything you’ve seen me enjoy and I can spit something out.

Deep pre work thoughts.

Drop a thing you know I like in my inbox and I’ll throw one of my weird secret ocs back.

I don’t want to alarm you, but this MIGHT be the best 5 bucks I ever spent.

i cannot actually believe this

cackles happily
I explained to them I was introduced to their music through the aquabats fandom and it would make me happy if they did this, BUT if they weren’t comfortable with it i’d be totally happy with them sayin’ hi to me like normal instead. 
BUT they are magical human beings so HERE WE ARE. <333
