i think most tv is shit. so a while ago when janine recommended ‘adventure time’ to me, i thought yeah right. more fucking crap. but right away, i fell in love with it. it’s so fun and crazy that it reminds me of a lot of anime i like, like ‘howl’s moving castle’ and ‘spirited away.’ each episode moves at light speed and there’s often no clear motivation for why any characters are doing anything except that “it’s awesome” or something like that. and to me, that’s way more realistic and believable than yet another love triangle that will end in disaster or more fucking incidental rock music during the ‘fun scene’ where the characters momentarily forget how bad their lives are and have a super crazy food fight and sing into broom handles and jump around together and realize how close they all really are BUT JUST UNTIL SOMETHING TERRIBLE HAPPENS AND WE’RE LEFT WITH YET ANOTHER CLIFFHANGER TO KEEP US WAITING BREATHLESSLY FOR THE NEXT EPISODE!!!!!!!!…………
fuck that shit. it’s nonsense, and totally predictable. it’s the same characters and the same romances and the same double- and triple-crosses that every other bullshit HBO tv show has been doing for fucking ever. and adventure time doesn’t do it.
adventure time comes up with random, weird, surprising shit, and there’s never any stupid double-crosses or love triangles. it’s just about pals having fun together, being good buddies. i guess i relate to that more than i do a bunch of fucking scoundrels creating constant, needless drama.
you know what, i guess it only makes perfect sense that i despise tv shows that are so focused on real life qualities i despise — i’m not just being an overly opinionated asshole about those shows. they legitimately offend me, whereas shows about good people having fun make me feel good. gee whiz. that was really simple but i never really thought about it like that.
adventure time and my blog just helped me realize yet another important self-awareness thing. that’s really kick ass.
