Have to appreciate the twisted sense of humor of magic when it sends your homestead after a couple of weeks of filling out financing applications.

Probably not but any chance I can trade in an unused headstone for my car? No?

I don't understand why some media ends tragically, with the bad guys winning or with everyone dying. Don't humans watch/listen to media for entertainment? What's entertaining about a grim and depressing conclusion to a team's adventures? Or a tale that ends on a sour note because the media wants to impart some kind of life lesson about things? I don't give a Kentucky Fried Fuck about life lessons. Tragedy is not instantly equatable with telling a worthwhile story.

I don't mind sad things happening at all. I've seen a lot of media where sad things happened, but ultimately everything turned out okay. But sad things happening isn't the same as forcing your audience to wallow in agony for no fucking reason other than to manipulate hormones to produce an effect of despair.

I don't need you to explain the concept of the "tragedy" genre to me or to argue my preferences; I am not stupid. I just think that nihilistic endings and unnecessary character deaths are bullshit, and don't add the gravitas some media creators think that they do.

"I am a leaf on the wind" FUCK YOU, ACTUALLY.

Murderbot out. :(

This is just a reminder (even though I doubt anyone needed it, but I have to say it) that tomorrow I'm going to be marrying Dan. Whoever wants to come for that, definitely be there. It's going to be a great day one way or another.

I was thinking about having dinner together on Sunday at my place. It'd be a tight squeeze, but I think we could make it work. Or we can just have it in the backyard. Something. It's been awhile since we've all gotten together and I need to introduce Steve to some of you.

Let me know what you think?
