I get the "I don't like the art style" argument. Like, I want to watch the new He-Man cartoon just to piss off the chuds who are complaining that the show is RUINED FOREVER because He-Man (more like "She's The Man," amirite?) sold out to Hollywoke, but ugh, it's so hard for me to look at those promo clips and not see that commercial of the two dudes in the muscle suits dancing together in a bar.
I roasted myself in my dream last night and woke up with a giggle.
I was at a shop looking for a costume and all they had was this silver and black thing with feathers that I didn't like. I asked the sales lady, "Uh do you have anything else, maybe in plus sizes, that would suit me?"
And she says to me, she says... "Try the perfume department."
I'm watching it now, and I can think of is sympathy for Japan. All those expensive, empty stadiums and facilities. Countries never make back what they spend for these events, but that's definitely true for Japan in this case.
Yeah, that's a hard one. And they had a doctor and nurse as part of the torch teams in the stadium, that really hit home. I'm impressed and then sad yeah. The outdoor events have some people in the stands. Or cycling finish is getting people in seats. Still the indoor ones are empty.
And it can be almost zero stakes for team owners especially in large markets because fans are gonna go buy tickets to their games and merchandise anyway. The New York Knicks for instance have been absolute shit for twenty five years and they're making money over fist, so...
Which is why I support nationalizing all sports franchises, including college teams; tying teams to municipalities; and allowing for the development of new teams.
@silverfox One of my formative reading experiences as a youngster was an article by Isaac Asimov titled "The Relativity of Wrong," about the importance of being iteratively slightly less wrong.
Also, I think I would probably quite like the podcast you've recommended.
