I don’t know what I expected from Ferdinand’s paralogue, but certainly not to watch his father get lynched by a mob.
On another note, Lysithea getting worried about Claude after Gronder gives me feelings </3

I don't understand the massive Cullen hate. I just completed Dragon Age 2 to try to understand it, but he turned against Meredith in the end? He was kind towards my champion even though they were such an evil Mage. Considering the things we went through, I think it's acceptable for him to be slightly rude, which I didn't see. I don't understand the massive Cullen-hate fan club

Whenever i try to draw a pose based on a Cats Pic i find myself asking this very important question:
“This is an unedited screenshot. How are you doing that?!”

The Enigmatic Complaints of Tyler Madison part. 4: Rated “Prestigious”-13
For this next installment, I felt the need to add onto my very first post in this series. More specifically, the idea of a mature, sophisticated work and what I mean by such. This is something that I feel is in desperate need of being emphasized to my best ability.
Tumblr media
I cannot stress this enough when I start off with this: Enough with your comedy, western cartoons. You managed to make more story-driven material more of a regular occurrence in your work! Without that precious taste of edgy maturity, all you’re doing with having a more comedy-centered work now is actively regressing art, little more than a complete degrading of the medium. Sure, animation allows you to do whatever you can to create a different feeling sense of timing and comedic facial reaction, but if it isn’t proposing the sense of true art that I strive for, then such creative merit might as well be stuck in the shadow realm. We are now at a point where simply aiming to be only or mainly humorous will show next to no artistic prestige or passion, the latter of which is anything but a nebulous accusation.
Tumblr media
I think the fact that preschool shows like the ones shown above may have something to do with this embrace of artistic regression. Why would a preschool show even exist in a modern context? We now have so many “for the whole family” works anyway, animation or otherwise, so why would bother? Where’s the value at this point?
Seriously, despite that one Hilda show (whatever it’s called) has what seems like a cool setting, but based on looking so wholesome and not edgy by any stretch, how can I believe that it’s any better than the bullshit Teletubbies or Barney offered? I even heard that it was chosen to be a PEABODY nomination! There was no win, and frankly, I ain’t surprised, because how can such a round, non-adult thing of fluff be considered for such a prestigious award? All of this especially doesn’t help with how the superhero one is basically just enforcing poisonous “girl power”, “all boys are bad and dumb” ideals based on the two episodes I bothered looking at and letting my twitchy knee dictate everything. Then again, it’s also clearly one of those girly shows, which is absolutely nothing manly sophisticated.
Tumblr media
It still upsets me seeing Pokémon care more about shit like derpy Psyduck face or whatever other goofy shit that happens in Journeys rather than things like the PokéBall boob trick found in the manga. This silly stuff is basically going down the route of a certain group of yellow screaming beans that love banana. Between this show and several other cartoons like Gumball, it’s clear that the humor only strives for “LOL So Random” and nothing else with little regard for character or story. Their existence means I now need to make some arbitrary standard that being animated and purely comedic makes you the lowest of lows, unless, of course, it fits under my equally arbitrary requirement of pure edginess that gives me this feeling of intelligence. No wonder why I was basically a mid-2000s Zim simp, as even with bits of random humor, it’s more than only that and has an actual sense of prestige in some of the comedy. I can actually feel like an adult there getting that stuff.
Now I get why I keep lamenting on the mystic content I saw at a younger age. The double entendre that made me feel like a man; a willingness to show the shadow of a hanged man; STOLEN ORGANS!!!!. You name it. No stolen organs in 2021, clearly there’s no progression in the medium. But all my face-value assumption based on a couple silly images makes me refuse to believe that any form of maturity can be found in places like Suck & Muk or whatever. I highly doubt such a round or simple drawing could bother to tackle subjects like ableism or genocide.
Tumblr media
It’s also why I’ve been leaning more toward Japan for my animation related enjoyment. I can actually get a sense of prestige just from picking out the majority of random frames from most of the various anime that exists. It also helps that they clearly remember the importance of being fun and not focusing too much on the politics on whatever sexual orientation has, or any sort of political commentary in general. Even the more all-around fun stuff, from what I could tell, leans more toward my idea of having higher sophistication. Not perfect, obviously, but the more ghastly parts of that cartoon scene tends to be compensated enough to where generalizing all of it is such a foolish endeavor.
Tumblr media
Meanwhile, the fact that an anime work is currently the top rated thing on all of Letterboxd just shows the borderline DNA-coded level of prestige found within this side of animation, and as a result, I’m now permitted to use this ranking and the realm of Japanese animation as a specialized status symbol that enhances my image of superiority.
Anime must be something that SJWs are allergic to, seeing as they actually care to provide my dick intelligent people actual lady-like women, nothing like that Spinnerella blob that has no structure. Of course, none of this necessarily guarantees a great work, which I will elaborate next time...… Just need to ensure I order more of my special drinks first.
On the flipside, however, I’m also perfectly willing to stigmatize many PG-13 or R rating works as being copy-paste tryhard material, for it’s harder for me to sense an aura of prestige from those works. The exceptions are merely a product of sophistication and talent, no matter how stubborn I act.
Tumblr media
The delicious and mentally soothing realization of hidden innuendo within the realm of kids content (or simply family-oriented works) just makes it all the more likely to notice a sense of prestigious genius for which the writers are providing to me. However, just the mere act of knowing that it’s more for the adults makes it clear that a sense of sophistication is more likely to be absent unless I’m in the mood to say otherwise. By just simply saying “for the adults,” half the time you may as well say “less appropriate” more than you say “more relatable,” at which point, rather than feel delicious and soothing, I feel ejected by heated needles that contain venom that paralyses you and then gives you rabies.
The same goes for tackling a serious subject such as prejudice or other societal issues. A good 2 out of 3 times, it’s when such subjects are snuck into the material that’s below the PG-13 equivalent is when a project gives me a sense of prestige. My intellectual outlook is formed from the insistence of seeing the image of blood or sensual details as the cheapening of the values one’s project is intending to hold, lest I see The Mystic Knee not twitch as I notice the thematic enhancements. If the knee twitches as there is PG-13+ level sensual theming, then I shall take it upon myself to go to the painted extreme of placing the work onto the metaphorical dumpster. It’s just that simple unless I dictate otherwise.

“If you can’t handle me at my worst, you don’t deserve me at my best”
really went from
“We should be there for each other even in our darkest days”
to
“I’ll abandon you if you don’t tolerate my constant emotional abuse”

Michael in Best Self: Ethics classes taught me why it was bad to lie.
Michael in TTDS: I used lying to hide my other lies, which is fine, right?
