“So we belong only by doing, and we own only by doing, and we love only by doing and knowing. And if you want an interpretation of life and love, that would be the closest thing I can come to.”—Ray Bradbury
“What is so delicious as a just and firm encounter of two, in a thought, in a feeling? How beautiful, on their approach to this beating heart, the steps and forms of the gifted and the true! The moment we indulge our affections, the earth is metamorphosed; there is no winter, and no night; all tragedies, all ennuis vanish; all duties even; nothing fills the proceeding eternity but the forms all radiant of beloved persons. Let the soul be assured that somewhere in the universe it should rejoin its friend, and it would be content and cheerful alone for a thousand years.”—Ralph Waldo Emerson
“I find this law of one to one, peremptory for conversation, which is the practice and consummation of friendship. Do not mix waters too much. The best mix as ill as good and bad. You shall have very useful and cheering discourse at several times with two several men, but let all three of you come together, and you shall not have one new and hearty word. Two may talk and one may hear, but three cannot take part in a conversation of the most sincere and searching sort. In good company there is never such discourse between two, across the table, as takes place when you leave them alone. In good company, the individuals at once merge their egotism into a social soul exactly co-extensive with the several consciousnesses there present. No partialities of friend to friend, no fondnesses of brother to sister, of wife to husband, are there pertinent, but quite otherwise. Only he may then speak who can sail on the common thought of the party, and not poorly limited to his own. Now this convention, which good sense demands, destroys the high freedom of great conversation, which requires an absolute running of two souls into one.”—Ralph Waldo Emerson
You're so great at what you do! You make me want to try to cosplay. I wouldn't be very good at it, but I'd like to try.
You actually have a really good face/look for anime characters. You should try cosplay. My first time cosplaying was pretty poor and looked silly but I’ve always thought that’s part of the fun and sometimes “bad cosplay” is fantastic.
Because Thor is the son of Odin it's his identity not some mask and cape as is with most superheroes. Passing on the Mjölnir is one thing and it doesn't bother me to replace him with a female. Especially since Asgardians have female warriors. But it's the way they're going about it that I disagree with. He's always been good now all of a sudden they're going to have him fuck up and ruin his reputation so they can go in a new direction?
Okay, I can agree with that. Now I haven’t been consistent with my Thor issues but if he has (at least recently) been a pinacle of virtue and they are going to tarnish that for the sake of this storyline. I can understand the upset. Another bit though, is that we don’t know entirely how this is going to be done. A theory is that it will be Angela and if that is the case at least they are keeping it within the family. As I said before, I think it comes down to writing and that especially means in terms of origin/transition.
They keep saying this is not a different person, it just is Thor but let’s see how true that holds. Another thing is, I wouldn’t expect this to be permanent, rest assured your Thor will return.
How do you feel about marvel making Thor a woman now? I don't think I like it.
Well I see two sides to this. On the one hand I like the idea of characters being titles that can be passed down. It allows for more dramatic story telling and less “ageless” characters. It allows for diversity, such as in this case. However, on the other hand, if this diversity is merely for the sake of diversity(Marvel attempting to be controversial and/or just pandering to a female audience) then I have an issue with that.
Whatever the case if it is well written I will be happy, I think that is what matters and differentiates between good and bad changes in a series.
i find your youtube videos very interesting, i love how you refer to pop culture as a means to explain how the topic (of the video) can be found and expressed in our time.
Thank you, I really enjoy making videos and wish I was working on the more often. I’ve always loved film and I love philosophy. My thought is always that if I can convey an idea in a simple and related way then I understand it well. Also it gives me the chance to explore multiple things I love.
Don't think of it as self glorification, but rather a means of making it easier on those interested in following your cosplay journey. I am one of the, I'm sure many, who followed you after AX. I felt weird and stalkerish. When someone gives you a card and says follow my work it's inviting but feeling like you're invading someone's personal life it feels un welcomed and weird. TBH I found you on ig before tumblr but was like nope, don't be a creep. I'm not a creep I'm just interested in cosplay.
Wow that is a really lovely way of putting it. Know that I never thought you or anyone else to be weird or creepy, it’s incredibly honoring to have anyone be interested in me for any reason, so thank you. I suppose also it is true that when someone is interested in me for my cosplay they may be quite disinterested in my personal life and so to keep the two separate would make sense.
