Friendly neighborhood self-confessed laconophilia, whose armor suits him, but it can not hide that mark (Nothing ever will), who was prepared the very moment that he let his arrow fly, that’ll slay anything that's evil (that's his deal), who will never die (just go Missing In Action), who's desperate to regain his honor, who has the innate ability to be overlooked and ignored, who hides a bitter heart under a veneer of lovable idiot, and who knows deep down that Who I am is not who I want to be...

Goose told me to draw a picture of Bubo delivering a Hogwarts letter. I took the joke one step further.

Robin & Cat - Date pt. 5

Robin and I share the same favorite video game. Final Fantasy 6 really is the perfect RPG, character-wise. I just love that cast. Cyan, Mog, the Figaro brothers…ah, now I want to play it again. Good thing I own it on 3 different systems.

Just sunk in that a quarter of a hundred people like what I have to say enough to elect to get updates on what I have to say whenever I say a thing. Because that’s what having 25 followers REALLY means. There are 25 people who have lives and hopes and dreams and said “Oh hey, I like the cut of this guy’s jib. Let me know whenever he says something, would you Tumblr?” And that’s pretty cool.

Yooooo! hatcadet scotchtrooper heyitspizzaking flyingstewardess! So we are thinking of doing studio ghibli characters for dragoncon. You guys interested? I know we’ve thought about it before but I’m serious this time….

What? Too old? Bah! I’m turning 32 in July and flyingstewardess and I are still doing whatever we want. My face is thin, the bags under my eyes are getting worse, I’ve been afraid of getting older since I was 22 and I have really bad self esteem issues but cosplay is something no one is gonna take away from me. I will try to make myself look the best with what I got and and cry a little about how I look but go out and have fun as long as I don’t have con plague. So I’m making flyingstewardess do baron even if she doesn’t like furries because haru isn’t complete withou baron!

I also have that thing where I only want to do costumes of characters I like and identify with, and, well, it’s weird, but, I just have too much respect for Ashitaka to do that costume.  I mean, Ashitaka is near the epitome of a heroic character, not because he goes on the classical heroic journey, or that he is a “good guy,” but rather because he what he does in spite of everything. Ashitaka did something he shouldn’t have, killed a Boar Spirit, and he understands it was wrong, but he accepts the consequences of his actions when he plainly states, “I was prepared the moment I let my arrow fly” when told he has been cursed for his “Crime.” From his point of view, he had no other choice. The boar was moments from entering the village, and its simplest touch could curse or kill any of the inhabitants, and knowing their might be repercussions, Ashitaka acted anyway.

However, Ashitaka stoically accepts his fate, and is put in perfect juxtaposition with the two sides of the central conflict. We see the nature spirits and the humans destroying themselves and each other with their hate, and now their hate has reached into this man’s life and ruined it. Of anyone in the film, Ashitaka has the most right to be angry, to rage against those around him, and yet, of everyone in the film, he is the most level headed. He sees that other’s hate lead to the curse that is slowly killing him, a curse that accelerates when he is angry.

As such, Ashitaka takes great pains to give everyone a chance. He sees everything with eyes wide open, and in my favorite line from the film, and one that sums up the character and hits strongly at the theme of the movie, when questioned by Lady Eboshi as to what he is doing in Irontown, Ashitaka states that he is there, “To see with eyes unclouded by hate.”

In short, Ashitaka is everything I aspire to be.  But it’s not who I am.

Not by a long shot.  I’m much more like No-Face than Ashitaka.

And I’ve always been more comfortable behind a mask anyway.

I’d love to! Have to mull it over a bit before I can give a solid yes, but I’m a very strong maybe, Maibe :P

I just wouldn’t know who to choose right now. I wouldn’t feel comfortable as Howl or Ponyo’s Dad. And I’ve seen a bunch of Porcos so I wouldn’t really want to do that. Maybe Yupa from Nausicaa?

Too old to be Ashitaka, so,

This is part 3 of my 40 part review of the entire Discworld series, in chronological order of release.

Today’s book is Equal rites, by Terry Pratchett.

Mini-Review
The first book that seems like a real Discworld novel, but oddly the first one that I feel comfortable saying can be skipped entirely.
It’s not BAD, but just kind of forgettable.

Spoiler Free Review
This is the first book without Rincewind in it, instead focusing on Granny Weatherwax, a witch, and Eskarina Smith, the first (and I belive, only) female wizard.

The book focuses on how people deal with the fact that a woman has wizard magic, and her quest to be taught at Unseen University.

I feel a little weird saying that this book can be skipped, because its not bad in any way. I listened to it on audio book and it was enjoyable enough. I just feel that even though I enjoyed it, it didn’t really stick with me like other Discworld books.

Good characterization as always, but this book has a undercurrent of sexism that really bothers me. I think we’re all supposed to disagree with these people, but the fact that every single person in the book is constantly saying “It’s not NATURAL!” all the time can get a little wearying.

Below the cut is another spoiler filled dissection of the major plot points and world/character building.

Next week on #ReviewsdayTuesday is “Mort”, the fist book to feature Death as a main character. If memory serves me, it’s going to be GOOD.
