Sorry to post about airplane / artist Taylor again but I have more thoughts to elaborate on that have me all kinds of shook. This is the one I think we may hear from / about on track 15 (maybe) – the last track.
This Taylor in the video is the artist working on her art (presently, TS6 aka her reputation) (she painted the words reputation on the plane .. that’s how we know she’s an artist .. also her headband. )
She recognized there was a flaw in reputation so she cut that part off (the wing) to literally get rid of it. Which that’s metaphorical for the part of her reputation she doesn’t want anymore.
And in doing so, in cutting off the wing, she literally grounded herself - so for now she isn’t going anywhere while she works on this.
Then as the scene continues she proceeds to continue to work on the plane (fix reputation) (sparks flying around)
She doesn’t want to be a part any of the drama (some of the other Taylor’s in the scene engaged in it)- she’s staying out of it. Sitting back, quietly, not saying a word, with her art.
And she is also staying back out of the spotlight the other Taylor’s had found themselves in (no lights on artist Taylor )
Just working on her art, making reputation better
Working on putting reputation back together
This Taylor has
No fancy dress
No done up hair
No microphone, awards, snakes
Just a regular girl
That’s it, that’s actual Taylor
It’s just Taylor and her art
And when she’s done fixing reputation … ie her plane has a wing again, then, TS6 will be done and reputation’s repairs will be finished.
so in your otp who crawls out onto a plane wing to announce to the other that beyonce is having twins and who has to explain to their teammate/coworker that their significant other just ‘really likes beyonce’
Not to sound melodramatic, but it honestly feels like the biggest
part of my childhood died today. I say it all the time, but I attribute
Godzilla to the person that I am today – a statement that would
probably raise a few eyebrows, but it’s true. Every creative outlet that
I have today stems from Godzilla, be it drawing, animation, acting, or
filmmaking. Godzilla was the first thing I ever drew, and
when it comes to filmmaking, I can pinpoint the exact moment in my life
where I thought “Yeah…THAT’S what I wanna do.” As a little kid, I’d
constantly borrow this book on Godzilla from my school’s library, but
I’ll never forget the first time I did. In it was this illustration that
depicted the set of a Godzilla movie, and seeing that, man…I was
completely enthralled. As a kid, you know these movies are just “make
believe,” but most of the time, your brain doesn’t really process how
things like that work. This was the first time I got a look at the
behind-the-scenes process of stuff like this, and as a wide-eyed little
kid, it just blew my mind. Guys off to the side creating explosions,
people standing high up on balconies operating miniature planes and the
monsters’ wings, tails, etc., and of course, the man inside the suit
itself…all of it was so captivating to me, but as a kid, it’s that
last part that captured my imagination the most. Seeing pictures of
Haruo Nakajima, the original suit actor to portray Godzilla (and many
others), totally opened up my eyes. From that point on, I wanted to be
Godzilla, hahaha. A dream that persists to this day, mind you. So to say
that Mr. Nakajima is one of my heroes, wouldn’t exactly be an
exaggeration. One of the things on my bucketlist was to one day meet
him, shake his hand, and thank him for the impact he left on me…and
I’m beyond thankful that I had the pleasure of doing exactly that last
year. Not only was that the absolute highlight of an absolutely dreadful
year, but it was one of the biggest highlights of my life, period.
Finding out he was gonna make an appearance at a small convention in
Kentucky, making the last minute decision to take a spontaneous trip
over there despite being in-between jobs and having to scrap up what
little money I had at the time…it’s things like that you never forget.
I remember walking back to the hotel all misty-eyed after all was said
and done – I almost couldn’t believe what happened, haha. I never get
starstruck. This was the first time that I did.
Rest in peace, Godzilla, Rodan, Varan, Mothra, and many others. Thank you for everything, Mr. Nakajima.

does it because he wants to fly. He has dreams of soaring through the
air, and draws out transmutation circle after transmutation circle,
carefully plotting out ways to make it possible. But even with
alchemical intervention, a human alone is not light enough to float
unassisted, so he researches planes and airships. Planes are expensive,
though. And becoming a State Alchemist involves money for any kind of
research his heart desires, as well as access to the most well-equipped
labs in the country. Eventually, his hunger to fly outweighs his desire
to keep his research to himself.
Without birds, nature would lose her voice and the planet its most engaging envoys. Birds matter precisely because they matter to us. Environment is a concept. Nature a label. Birds are real, elements that live within our sensory plane. They spread their wings and bridge the gap between our world and the natural world.
In my mind, Cold War era aircraft are some of the most extraordinary vehicles designed. It was a time when technology was rapidly advancing, and designs that people had long dreamed of were suddenly becoming possible.
Man now that I’m thinking about it I’m coming up with all sorts of seeds that might/will hopefully become important again later
The komar, Black’s astral plane, Black’s WINGS, Keith’s family, the black bayard, the scaultrite Acxa stole, the rift monsters, the rift itself, Allura’s magic (though that’s already started to become important again), the alternate Alteans, project Kuron, etc
