god, there's a lot i liked about Iron Blooded Orphans
racism, interactions with white people
got asked about my "heritage" at work today, and ended my explanation with "that's why i have a weird face" and got a speech from a white woman about how i'm "beautiful" which i walked away halfway through. like, she asked a pointed question about how i look, not my problem that she felt bad about it
- not the album, the crane wife, but the band, the crane wives
with lyrics like: "and i know that you mean so well / but i am not a vessel for your good intent" and "on some level i think i always understood / that a ship could never really love an anchor"
crop top adventure thread (#sewing)
+ i cut the bottom off of a shirt that was attracting holes
+ hemmed it with a sewing machine and fucked it up a little (also listened to podcasts for six hours while doing so)
+ so now i'm hemming it by hand while i watch LOGH.
+ i want to put a drawstring through the end when i'm done
I think I got spoiled by character work in podcasts. This show is trying to make me care about the most boring characterization of "hero of justice who makes a bunch of hard choices" vs. "a fucking evil guy that's empty inside."
The lancer & saber thing is only interesting because it does some foreshadowing but like, I didn't really care about their interactions.
I like narrative foils and any attempt at making them sucked here, a lot!
