But In response to your note, thanks :] Yeah i know you have to suck alot to be good, I just get very down on myself because i want to be good so bad, then when i put forth the effort it completely sucks and i get immensely discouraged. I guess i just feel like it comes so easy for people, to be amazing, and not that im being a hater or anything, i just wish it came as easy for me. None the less, the ideas keep flowing.
I know what you mean, it’s an illusion though. The people that are amazing just put in more hours somewhere along the line. Get as much mileage out of your pencil as possible.
People are always doing can food drives for the homeless, but I’ve never once seen a can opener drive for the homeless. How many homeless are out there starving to death because their food is trapped inside a metal cylinder?
There isn't enough absurd and random things in the world. Would you tell me a completely random and absurd story? Your command of the english language when paired with the outrageous is more fantastical than magical sparkly kitten unicorns.
Once I was riding the bus, in my own world inside my head while I listened to whatever glorious sounds that were coming out of my ipod at the time. I noticed a man a couple seats up was trying to get my attention. He was an black male, probably in his late 40’s or early 50’s, hair slicked black with so much grease it looked plastic, a thin little John Waters mustache, dressed in all black, with a large duffle bag with him. He motioned me over. I figured he probably was trying to sell something out of that bag, which isn’t uncommon on the bus. People get on the bus trying to sell bootleg dvd’s, or porn, or cologne, or watches, or whatever other random stuff they’ve no doubt illegaly acquired. That or he probably had some random question or something. Me being a nice person, I usually like to at least humor people, just to be polite, so I went over to see was this strange man wanted. He motioned for me to lean in so he could tell me something all secret-like. For some reason I complied. The man says “You’ve got some sparklin eyes and luxurious lips.” Completely taken aback, not knowing how to respond to that, I simply just shook my head no and quickly returned to my seat. For the remainder of the ride the man gave me flirty looks. Winking. Blowing kisses. I figured this is what it must feel like for women when some creepy older dude is being all… creepy and old. My stop eventually came and I got off. The end.
The fact that a man attempted to flirt with me is not bothersome to me, it’s honestly not the first time. Apparently I’m pretty? *shrug*. But the manner in which he did it I found to be odd. Very forward. His choice of words was weird though.
1) Sparking eyes? Is that even a complement? I have no control over when my eyes sparkle, that’s just a result of light being in them. Anybody’s eyes sparkle with sunlight in them. Seems more like an observation than a compliment.
2) Luxurious lips? Yes, he said “luxurious”. I hope he meant “luscious” or something, because luxurious is a word that makes no sense to describe lips. Luxurious is something you use to describe a Mercedes Benz, or a private jet, or an executive suite at a high-end hotel. Not lips. My lips have many great qualities I’m sure, but I don’t think they have anything in common with fancy cars or expensive rooms.
Definitely absurd and random I think. I kinda have 1001 weird stories from riding public transportation. It almost makes me glad I don’t have a car.
Love this article. It touches on my favorite aspect of Adventure Time; that nothing is explained. I remember many times in animation/writing courses where teachers tried to impress upon me that while they liked the premise of my ideas, there needed to be explanation. I’ve never bought into that, I always thought it’s better to leave it out if it’s not vital to your story. You obviously don’t need to know how/why things came to be for Finn and Jake to enjoy their adventures, so why waste time trying to explain it. Not explaining it just makes the weirdness that much more funny and interesting and fantastical.
