So ANN and RightStuf made a funny this morning, not on April Fool’s Day. Yet I see no rage. Considering this was done by companies who would be closest to the actual ones involved in merchandise, I’m…
When I saw that video, this is exactly what I was thinking. I stay out of the Sailor Moon fandom because, let’s be honest, it’s one of the biggest “asshole drama monger” fandoms out there. I have no idea why and it makes me very, very sad.
It would make Usagi sad too, you know, her whole…I LOVE EVERYONE LET’S NOT FIGHT thing that was one of the core messages of the whole freaking thing.
…I got off topic, anyways. I think “they” attack missdream, sailorfailures and the rest because it is easier to bitch and get some sort of response. That’s my guess, anyways.
People are crazy*goes back to her corner*
This is not “cool.”
This is sad.
In fact, it’s more than just sad… It’s pathetic.
Between the MLP crap, the Disney Princess garbage, the never ending 90’s nostalgia, the barbie collections, and the weird obsession with Harry Potter (basically a kids book), this sort of thing is causing the “peter pan complex” that is so epidemic in my generation, and it’s created the entire hipster movement as well:
Encouraging people from the age of 20 or so up into their mid 30’s to spend time and money reminiscing about their childhoods out of the sunlight and off of the streets, holed away in a dark living room or bedroom watching something stupid like Disney’s The Fox and the Hound or playing Zelda.
Yes, it’s nice to remember what life was like back when we were kids, but for crying out loud… you’re not kids anymore. And when I see shit like this being glorified on tumblr or anywhere else, I cringe at the thought of these infantile man-children and women-children who never grew up, and how they’re going to be running the planet in short order.
I grew up largely without video games (my choice), and mostly played with action figures. However, even now as an adult, I would never adorn my fucking living room or bedroom shelves with old collectable toys (let alone make an entire room devoted to such a thing). They were for playing with, and then they were for the donation box for someone else to enjoy once I grew up. So yeah, this room full of various consoles and every retro old video game known to man? Pathetic. And so is anyone who says, “to each their own.”
First off, anybody who claims that someone is a child because of their interests is a child in themselves. If you think that what makes you an adult is liking a certain thing and disliking other things, it appears that you have failed to grow up and stayed in the middle school stage where it was “cool” to say that others were little kids for watching cartoons. Grow the fuck up. A real adult doesn’t give a shit what others think about his or her interests. You have obviously failed to grow up. Now, let’s talk about your inability to see.
If you were to actually pay attention as to what’s in this picture, you would see that it’s not just 90s stuff. I can see an SNES, but I can also see a GameCube and a PS2 (both of which were released post-2000). This isn’t somebody’s reminiscence chamber — this is someone’s collection. Somebody had a hobby that they loved and they had the means to create this. There is somebody out there who absolutely adores something, doesn’t give a flying fuck what people like you think, and decided to make this dream a reality. They feel a sense of accomplishment that you never will, and you judging them won’t affect them in the least. You know why? Because you’re still a child worrying about what others might think about you (“oh no! What if they think that I’m littler than them!”), whereas this person here realized that what matters is what makes them happy.
I’m not the biggest fan of video games, but I see this and I see a human being that managed to accomplish something. I won’t be able to appreciate it as much as he/she can, but I can definitely say that the pride this person feels is well deserved.
As for you, you’re pathetic. You never grew up. You probably live your life in fear of what others think about you. You subscribe to some “norm” that was set by nobody in particular. You still live life thinking that there are some sharp lines that need adherence. You’re the child. Only children worry about what others think about what they like. I still remember middle school — kids telling others that they were little because they liked thing X or thing Y. Grow up, man-child. Middle school’s over.
I collect dolls, draw cartoons, watch cartoons/anime, play video games, etc etc. But I also do grown up things like get to work each night, pay rent/bills on time, keep the apartment in fairly good order, though I’ve always been known for clutter, bu at least the place is clean. Keep the fridge stocked, etc. And come Jan, I’ll be starting to pay off a car.
I reminisce because it’s fun and I enjoy them. But that doesn’t mean things like that are only exclusive to children. Adults need fun too, unless picking up sports watching is the epitome of adult fun…no thanks.
However there is ONE adult fun thing I VERY much enjoy….but there are children on this site, so I don’t talk about it…much. :P
Maturity has nothing to do with what one enjoys and everything to do with how one acts and treats their fellow human beings.
One of the curses of adulthood is the idea that we shouldn’t enjoy or indulge in things society has decided are intended for children.
It’s the idea that being an adult means leaving behind those carefree, innocent appreciations.
THAT is the real depressing part of all this. I know so many people who can’t enjoy things like Disney movies or MLP:FM(just for instance) because it is “too childish”, “too unrealistic” etc. There is a lost innocence there that breaks my heart.
Everyone finds pleasure in different things. As long as they are living a life they find personally full filling while living up to the responsibilities of being an adult (caring for your children, paying your bills, etc) no one has a right to judge them.
My home is filled with stuffed animals, figures, games, fanart. When you walk in, it’s a rainbow and you assume a child should live here. It’s like that because it makes me happy. I run a business that is centered around things that are bright, cheery and sweet. When people buy things from me or visit my table at a con, their day is made better. When people visit me, they all say they feel a wash of peace and happiness.
That is what these “childish, pathetic” things do for many people, it makes them happy. It washes away the unpleasant stresses of adulthood.
TLDR; If these don’t make the OP happy, that is ok. Trying to remove another’s happiness through shame though? That just reflects personal issues and that is sad.
Come in for a Visit Today?
If you have been meaning to stop by BTQ, there is no better day to shop locally! We ave great…
One of the best ways to help your economy is to buy local and from small business :) Helping the little guy helps everyone in the long run.
It’s that time of year again! Now through 11:59, Monday evening! This also applies to custom orders placed during this time.
A great chance to pick up a rainbow scarf, plush or charms :D
A pastel rainbow scarf with stars to brighten your day. Sweet as sugar with 10xs the warmth!
I’ve been wanting to make a couple new scarf designs to add to my shop. When I noticed I had some sparkle yarn, inspiration hit. This design is based on sugar stars, a delicacy for bloops everywhere.
There is sparkle yarn running through it, giving it a subtle shimmer. The pastel color is meant to be a soft contrast to my sugar bright rainbow cloud scarf. Overall, really happy with the result.
It’s available to order now at my websites:
This is a work of beauty. I can’t imagine how long it took to track all these down.
I tip my hat to you madam/sir and wish I was your friend.
