How are you and how are you holding up after the finale?
Me personally? Could be a lot better. Could be a lot worse.
In regards to the finale, I stopped watching the volume after aboooout episode 2, and from there either read itsclydebitches’ thorough and thoughtful recaps (which I can and do recommend) or let someone else tell me what happened to save myself some sanity. Which, from what all I’ve heard, isn’t the worst option I could have chosen (the best choice imo would have been to not at all watch or listen and live blissfully ignorant for the rest of my days-but hindsight ya know? Lol)
But to sum up: im fine since I didn’t watch it, but based on recaps and what my friends have had to say about fit—that was so fucking dumb. Hey crwbs? That was bad. What the fuck that was bad. Also that’s it? That’s it??? That’s the big face off?? That’s so dumb. That’s so bad. What the fuck. Hey RT? What the fuck.
Anyway -tosses v7 and v8 out the window into the garbage- in one of my better energy moods I’d like to start drawing a short comic of Qrow accidentally getting sent the wrong video clip from Glynda while he’s on a mission (it was supposed to be something from Ozpin relevant to insert mission here) but instead the clip is an old recording of young James in a chair, singing a book to sleeping Winter on one side of him in the chair, and a barely awake trying to sing along with him toddler Weiss on the other side of him.
Or just more of pseudo dad James with the Schnee kids because I’m so weak for it. Always have been.

Weird question but it's been on my mind and I have no friends. How critical do you think you need to be of the media you consume espically when you're into things from like the 80s where alot of questionable things weren't called out as much?
I mean, very critical, I think? Like you have to be aware of the context of when and where those things happened.
That reminds me of two videos I saw, that oddly enough both involve Mötley Crüe and stereotypes of asian people: one was a commercial about this Asian guy playing as a mad scientist of some sorts with a very thick and cartoonish accent who invented a machine to predict if an album was gonna sell or whatever the fuck, where he'd make listen Shout At The Devil to some boomers and if they hated it, that'd mean it's gonna be a hit (I mean, solid point but could've gone without the very racist stereotype ykwim?), and the other is when Nikki and Vince hosted Headbanger's Ball back in... somewhere in the early 90s? I forgot the year specifically, but that doesn't really matter. Point is that Nikki was going on about how Vince is very fluent in Japanese and I immediately thought "no wait that's so cool--" but I forgot that we were in the 80s/90s and Vince was just yabbering making incoherent noises trying to imitate an asian language I guess and I was legit facepalming bc it was so cringey and stupid and wrong oh my god and I was like "pls just shut up"🤦♀️🤦♀️🤦♀️
But at the same, that's what the 80s were all about, I guess? Like everything I've seen from that decade is extremely exaggerated and cartoonish (I might be a little biased bc all I've seen from that period are Crüe/hair metal mv lmao) so I just kind of accept it for what it is, bc even though a lot of the things that were done back then are questionable, there's not much we can do about it now, what matters more is that we moved on and improved as a society from that point. Like, when you consume media that are from a time period so different from the current one, I think it's important to both know when to turn off your brain so you can enjoy it without a care because in that precise moment you need a distraction but at the same time turn it on again when it's necessary to be aware that it wasn't perfect and some of the things said and done weren't good.
Like, you can enjoy a literature classic but also be aware that it might have some racist or sexist stereotypes: you have to both recognize it's a good story but also that it has its short comings due to the context and time it was written in. You have to be critical about the things you love, otherwise you'll never be able to face how reality is, which is made not of black and white, but rather shades of gray

Realizing belatedly that I can't add images to an ask. lol oh Well. (I made a quick doodle of them as fairies. XD) Scriabin, or Edgar.
Ahh, yeah, you can only add images to replies hah. Sounds cute tho, and I do have submissions open uou
I’m assuming this is for this ask meme? This one’s unfair, it switches back and forth between them so even I’m not sure at any given point which one’s my favourite. I’ve been more sympathetic towards Edgar, especially in the past, and he’s very rewarding to draw. And Scriabin is a complete enigma to me, I have every reason in the world to hate him and yet I love him, and I’ve talked at length about how beautiful I find his design, whether Before or After. I stopped counting after I got into the several hundreds of doodles but they were tied at one point and I’m really not sure who’s taken the lead by now, it’s anyone’s game
I think I’ll have to give it Scriabin this time, even in a low mood I’m still excited to see him
