Just found out Hello Kitty isn’t a cat, but a girl who lives near London. Up is down, fire is wet, and I can’t trust anything any more.

Can a person truly enjoy an artists work (regardless of medium, i.e. paint, music, writing, dance) without enjoying or liking the artist themselves? Should an artists work be judged independently from the artist? Or does what the artists says, supports, or otherwise does in their personal life have to negatively (or positively) impact how people view their work regardless of how much they liked their work beforehand?

This is a perplexing question I’ve found myself grappling with a lot more recently, and the answer for me is a resounding “I’m not sure”.

I think you absolutely CAN enjoy a work or body of work by an artist whose personal life and politics are problematic, but it sure makes it difficult sometimes.

Earthworm Jim is a cool videogame, but Doug Tennapel despises gay and trans people. H.P. Lovecraft writes some classic horror and was an abhorrent racist. The list goes on. Usually, if personal politics don’t taint the work it’s easier to enjoy it divorced from the creator - but other times you don’t have that choice. In the case of someone like Dave Sim, whose work eventually became lengthy diatribes against women the work itself is problematic BECAUSE of the creator’s input.

But even when the work doesn’t reflect the creator’s personal views, partaking of it raises the question of whether it’s acceptable to support such awful people through consumption of their work. But on the flipside you don’t want to deny yourself something interesting just because the person who made it was an asshole.

So yeah, I don’t actually know. I take it as it comes.

I want a movie about greek gods where hades isn’t the antagonist

By all accounts the antagonist in every Greek Gods movie should be Zeus’s dick. Nothing else causes as much murder and mayhem.

There’s an Alien under my parents’ sofa. Send help, please.

"I always get so bored at these formal dinners."

Check out what I found in London for £5! £5! The cheapest I’ve seen this on Ebay is about £26, so when I saw it I was like “take my money, shop-man!”. She’s got all her accessories and the paint is pretty decent, though the tights are a smidge messed up by her left foot and the hair was stuck to her back by a small piece of glue or paint, but I fixed that easy enough.All in all, it made the trip to London very worthwhile.
