I post about whatever has my attention at the moment.
Philosohy-Game Design-Civil Rights-Doctor Who-Teen Wolf-Xmen-True Blood-Sherlock-Adventure Time-Nickelodeon shows-etc.
This reminds me of some great commentary I’ve read on Levine and Co. and the subversion of typical Rhetoric and narrative structure in Bioshock. Especially the Andrew Ryan reveal.
So Sylveon has fangs
And it can learn the move Draining Kiss- The user steals the target’s energy with a kiss.
this “kiss” is actually a bite.
Sylveon is actually a vampiric fairy that drinks the blood of its enemies to restore its own energy.
That makes Sylveon sound pretty metal
So you guys know how Sylveons are predominantly male?
What if you were cuddling your Sylveon and you said:
"Who’s the cutest dragon killer?"
And it just looks you dead in the eye and says in the deepest silkiest most manly voice:
The interesting thing about Glados/HAL 9000 parallels is that
Hal was conceived at a time when artificial intelligence was more of a fictional construct than a practical possibility. Hal is introduced as humanlike because the audience is familiar with and comfortable with humans, but they aren’t familiar with or comfortable with living computers. It’s when he starts acting robotic and calculated that the audience realizes “oh no, he’s a computer” and he becomes threatening.
By the time Glados was conceived, we had become used to computer automated systems. Synthetic voices offering us information is something we encounter in daily life. Glados is introduced as a computerized preprogrammed voice because that’s what the audience is familiar and comfortable with. It’s when she starts acting human and emotional that the audience realizes “oh no, she’s alive” and she becomes threatening.
For the first time in years, I want to platonically cuddle the shit out of somebody and there is no one around.
I could not be there for my friend when she needed platonic cuddles! (Much better than Socratic cuddles fyi)
IT’S NEVER TOO LATE TONY! NEVER!
SHIT. THERE IS LIKE 654 MILES IN THE WAY OF THIS CUDDLE FEST.
(And yes, yes it is.)
But replace fandom with friend. Btw, Whenever I get to the post office I’m gonna’ mail you your Comic-con souvenirs. Since you didn’t get the dean license, I got you something else extra…
