I wrote and drew this comic half a year ago and never did anything with it, and funnily enough thought about the same exact thing again now and remembered I could publish it (Sorry mom)
My mom has always been pretty repetitive in her core thoughts but these days I’m noticing a lot more super familiar thoughts popping up in people all around me, and it’s a bit jarring. It’s weird how seamlessly some thoughts get accepted and integrated into your thinking and opinions and fact bank when you hear them from acceptable people.
I’m putting effort into finding harder thoughts to think about than the ones I’ve been thinking for the past 20 years and it’s surprisingly rare, a lot of it is just new aesthetics to old ideas, and a lot of the time it’s almost like procedurally generated mad libs style idea structures you just plug new words and concepts into.
I’m not saying every thought needs to be profound and novel, but my brain definitely enjoys encountering non-procedural Weird Twitter stuff and new perspectives that work much better than old concepts. Please keep introducing new memes into the thought soup.
