more than once i've come to believe that the conscious me is just a very small and clueless thing riding on a much larger and almost totally unknown subconscious me, sort of like a bird trying to steer a whale. it explains so much.

i think the most convincing proof i have for me, personally, regarding why people are not rational, are the times when I'm stressed out and my coping mechanism is consciously maladaptive.

like avoiding the Big Pile of Stress-Inducing Work to noodle around with other things, pointedly ignoring how the Pile is growing ever-bigger and is heading towards criticality, and yet you can't stop yourself from doing so.

me: screaming internally
also me: screaming externally

"hey fam how you coping with stress"

"badly"

i think what bothers me the most about all this is that it's easy to blame them but you have to wonder if the audience really is that stale as well. it's like not casting a non-white lead in a Hollywood film because of the fear that white audiences won't be interested in a POC protagonist.

the usual complaint is oh hey, look, it's the big money folks trying to make sure they recover their investment by appealing to the lowest common denominator, and in the process ruining everything

it's not just in film, it's in gaming as well. the big AAA publisher that churns out formulaic sequels and rarely gambles on new IP is a thing

it's fascinating because Hollywood seems to be slowly becoming more adventurous in what it'll make, but their desire to make bank has tended in the past to push them towards a conservatism that undermines the films they do make, so you hafta wonder if that'll screw them over again here

also i only just found out today that there is a live action Hollywood adaptation of Battle Angel Alita coming out and

i can't tell whether to be bummed out that it's live action and made by Hollywood

or pleased because they got Christoph Waltz

also what on earth did they do to her eyes

the fact that i have been having a headache for the past four hours is entirely coincidental

the diggy diggy hole song has been stuck in my head for the whole day. i may have made a terrible mistake

If you never got into Dead Space during it's prime, you truly, truly are missing out. It's still a great game eight years later, and the morphology and lore of the Necromorphs is incredible.

me, to a friend who's sad about breaking up: there's 7 billion people out there, you'll find someone

me, to myself: that just means there are 7 billion different ways to go wrong

I would just like to take a moment to acknowledge that the French really know how to protest stuff.
