narcasse: Sebastian Flyte.  Brideshead Revisited (2008) (bemusement)
In a bout of Christmas morning insomnia and despite the fact that I need to be officially awake and functional in a few hours the thought struck me that while I’ve talked about how Dios’ transformation into Akio is understandable and the series itself examines Utena’s motivations, I’ve never yet touched upon the idea of Anthy. Mostly because up until now, just as with Dios/Akio, I didn’t really have much of a grasp on who she was and how she functioned other than as an accessory to Utena’s story.

Merry Cthulhu, all, on this fine Eris Day.

Today listening to "I know him so well" from the ABBA musical Chess it occurred to me that the song is quite the paean to monogamy in spite of the characters actually involved.

Having written this analysis yesterday, in replying to comments it’s occurred to me that there might actually be another interpretation of what looks like overt racism in that episode. Read more... )

On the topic of structures or rather constructed structures; a theory expounded upon by episode 19 of Trinity Blood (Japanese dub, Spanish sub).

Now bearing in mind that this is a theory that I’ve been meaning to flesh out for a while and that I may in fact be completely wrong, which is how I usually preface some of my best theories really, today in a fit of absolutely avoiding what I’m meant to be doing I’d like to pose a theory as to how exactly Süleyman may have maintained his position as un-attached ‘uncle’ to just about anyone of note. Or we could just call it a Boier’s guide to being gay in Byzantium, whichever suits.

Growing out of conversation with [livejournal.com profile] alucards_bane on the topic of Malfoys and seeing as I’ve not yet been awake for very long, it occurred to me that I ought to add to my brief one time analysis of Lucius Malfoy. Looking back on it that was a very compact analysis which was more a case of picking out character traits that did and didn’t exist in complement to the thread that had triggered the idea of jotting things down in the first place.

It occurred to me today, in part due to this, that what I find so irritating about the character of Hermione from the Harry Potter series isn’t in fact the character itself but rather the fanon conception of her instead. And that’s the case in an awful lot of places really.

From here
Off the top of my head today though I’ll slowly keep coming back to update.

Not long ago I posited that Trinity Blood was in fact a story about one girl’s quest for sexual liberation but today I’d like to pose another possibility.

In the midst of my reading today I suspect I’ve hit something of a revelation as to why modern Cosmopolitanism comes across as just so utterly unpalatable nine tenths of the time. And funnily enough for once it may have very little to do with the actual content.

“How few days make up a century...” )

I preface this by saying that I know next to nothing about all the fancy ways and means of interpreting body language.

Now before I begin, while we all know that Trinity Blood is allegedly a story about some nanomachines and the crazy things they make people do and that that can obviously be taken to be an analogy for the tech-dependent lifestyle of today; I would like to pose another suggestion. Once which really was quite influenced by this analysis of Labyrinth.


Let me spoil Trinity Blood for you entirely )

Last Monday I attempted to write a post but somehow ended up wandering off to deal with other things. Plenty of my days are like that really so it’s not unusual for me to save an entry to post at a later date; unfortunately I seem to have lost a good portion of what I wanted to say in the process.

What I would have said )

A moment of potential Saiyuki trivia too )


Other than that, it would be nice if unabridged copies of The Muqaddimah were a little cheaper because I’m not so sold on the value of abridged versions of anything. And I’ve discovered that the very first time I got drunk was due primarily to kirschwasser because while it was indeed served in small, chilled glasses I simply decided that I could do with rather more of it than was sensible.
