To me the difference is that your college is kinda your whole life for four years for most people who go, and you just kinda naturally develop a comradeliness with other people who have that place and that experience in common with you, even if you don't know them that well (including the players on your school's team, or so I'd imagine).

Once you've been out for a while it's more vestigial and probably has as much to do with wanting to connect with your college identity as it does the sport.

But possibly I'm exaggerating all that in my mind because I went to a tiny school

I'm obv not into sports at all but fandom for your own alma mater makes way more sense to me than fandom for some random corporation

Rabid fandom is silly in either case but normal fandom for your school's team is at least understandable to me in the abstract

Otoh my fb is also full of people who are the type I would expect to support Bernie but are so far out left that they either don't vote or are cynical of even him

So probably he's really not electable. The Ron Paul of the left, I think.

I like Bernie but I think we're gonna have a rep president this time around. I haven't really seen any legitimate excitement about Hillary and the left is convinced Bernie can't win so he won't get the nod

They're probably right, but I don't think many of the people that are excited about him will get off their asses for Hillary.

I downloaded a bunch of this band's stuff and was so disappointed but it seems like they must've been really good live. I love this performance

Man, isn't this like 20 years late?

I met RL Stine as a kid (guy looks creepy and comically jewish, but was friendly) and read like 50 of those damn books. Some of them were pretty good for what they were. I moved on to Christopher Pike and Stephen King after the initial craze had passed.

not sure why i didn't connect moving on to stephen king from goosebumps, but that was also my trajectory.

i really dislike fan service in anime except for monogatari

in which i originally hated it

but then i read any of bobduh's various deconstructions of the genre & mechanism

and decided if they were mocking it effectively that it was ok

It’s bad. The way it’s normally used, it demeans and objectifies characters, and distracts/detracts from whatever a show is trying to do narrative-wise and emotionally. It makes the camera itself a lecherous observer of characters, and not simply the best framing device for the story being told. It adds to a value unrelated to a show as an artistic work, and in fact normally detracts from its artistic worth and the narrative/emotional weight of any scene. It demeans the audience as well, implying we’re unable to be entertained by the show’s actual worth, and the implications regarding my base-instinct-oriented nature colors my experience as a viewer. It proves that the creators of the show are not taking that show and its characters seriously – and if they’re not, why the fuck should I?


guy really nailed it here

I despise fan service in anime. It's not even for any high-minded reason (I'm fine with sear's sig, for instance), it's just obnoxious. It's even pretty annoying on TV shows with real actors. Nudity and sex scenes that make sense to have and advance the plot are ok, but when it's clearly just there to double the audience--that's not what I'm watching your show for. If I wanna stare at tits on a screen I'll go on the internet.

It's even worse with anime because it's not even arousing and it makes me feel like a weirdo for watching the show.

and why is a chiropractor recommending or administering ear candlings? (probably because they're both bunk medicine)

Is it normal to take a newborn to a chiropractor?

Also everything I've read suggests that ear candling does literally nothing and is potentially harmful if botched.

If you don't have time to watch the whole thing, skip to 21:50 and at least watch the interview. It's like between two ferns only actually funny and even more awkward because it's real.

I dunno if it's a japanese thing or just an anime nerd thing but anime humor is almost universally terrible
