The angel agreed to trade a set of white wings for the head of another demon. Overjoyed, the demon killed one of his own and plucked the head right off its still-warm body.

The angel then led the demon to heaven, where he underwent centuries of the cruelest tortures imaginable. Finally, the pain was so great that he lost consciousness - at which point his dark wings turned the promised shade of white.

so i was reading hbomberguy's curiouscat when i found this

Q: Your perspective on TTGL is nice. Thoughts on Kill la Kill?

A: Eh.

There was a time when I really liked KLK. It's over the top in absolutely every way, and that meant even when it was being exploitative it had something to say about attitudes to exploitation, and its messaging gets so utterly on-the-nose that it became really striking to me in a certain place in my life. There's a lot of stuff in the show about the relationship between humans and technology, art and audience, and so on, that I enjoyed talking about and using as an illustration of real-world social and cultural conditions. To a McLuhanist, KLK is a goldmine.

But that 'certain place' in my life is fucking over. I've spoken before that TTGL got me into a lot of things, art, classical music, media criticism, philosophy even. The one thing it didn't get me into, was anime. Because as much as I liked it, I liked it in spite of things that, at the time, I felt were necessary evils of the anime medium. Fanservice, bizarre attitudes towards women, un-nuanced grasp of real-world emotions and experiences. These things were like a texture of anime that you had to look past to see the good bits, annoying things you had to learn to not think much about. And frankly, I assumed that because what little anime I saw starting out, even when I liked it, had those elements. So I didn't watch all that much, because to be honest I don't need that stuff in my life.

I loved Mobile Suit Gundam because it spoke about humans trapped in literal war machines, and said important things about war, but I had to just quietly live with the fact the author's views towards women were messed up, and many early (and even late) gundam stories openly glorify behaviours that aren't all that heroic or positive, but deemed 'necessary' because war.

But in recent times I've seen a lot more stuff, courtesy of recommendations by friends and co-workers, and I've come to realise that my idea about what anime 'was', by my assumed necessity of its production and audience, was totally wrong. NONE of that stuff was inherent, it was just in so much of it that I'd expected it was part of the territory. There are plenty of great shows with none of that in them, which I missed because of the wrongful low-key doubts I had for the medium as a whole. But shows like Utena, Princess Tutu, the works of Masaaki Yuasa, Satoshi Kon, heck, do you want to know a secret? I saw my first Miyazaki film like three weeks ago. I've seen a bunch of them now and they're amazing. I've re-evaluated how I look at the medium as a whole and a lot of my opinions have shifted in kind.

With the eyes I have now, KLK is a show that's sometimes entertaining and sometimes really well-animated, but it's pretty deeply exploitative and contains attitudes that are worth criticising, and I know now that you can do so much better.

Please disregard the bullshit I've written about KLK over the years. I was, and probably still am, an idiot.
how can one man be so fucking based

He gave his life for us he fell upon the cross
To die for all of those who never mourn his loss
It wasn't meant for us to feel the pain again
Tell me why, tell me why...

i don't really like seinfeld, honestly

it's like listening to the beatles or eating cornflakes or vanilla ice cream

the humor is there, but it's been expanded upon so much by better things over the years that i can no longer appreciate the foundation on its own

But the Beatles tho
regular plain-ass rock music with nothing interesting going for it

it wasn't until they all began their solo careers that they went in interesting directions

His eyebrows sparkling, his white beard hangs down to his chest. The thatched mats, spread outside his chise, spread softly, his splendid attos. He polishes, cross-legged, his makiri, with his eyes completely absorbed.

He is Ainu.

The god of Ainu Mosir, Ae-Oine Kamuy, descendant of Okiku-Rumi, He perishes, a living corpse. The summers day, the white sunlight, unabrushed, ends simply through his breath alone.

Same way I play video games and binge watch television comedies

yeah it's a pretty gross thing to do. Fr tho I put subtitles on even if it's in English so that I can just scan through dialogue while I'm doing other things.
