Lately I’ve been thinking of starting another podcast about going through crazy shit and still having a sense of humor about it. We’d have guests on (anonymous or not) to tell awful yet funny stories from their lives. My dream would be to one day have guests like Tig Notaro, Julia Sweeney, and @chrisgethard. My very dear, hilarious friend Sarah (you may remember her as the friend who was in a ‘wolf cult’) has said she’d be interested in cohosting. Are any of you out there interested in this sort of thing?
“So what was so cool about Marc Bolan? He was cool because he defied the butch oppression of London’s East End by wearing fluffy sweaters and paillettes. He and his co-conspirator David Bowie developed their unique style while rummaging together through the trash cans of discards on Carnaby Street. (FYI, that’s Marc playing guitar on The Prettiest Star and yodeling back-up on “Heroes.) Marc was cool because his poetic lyrics were insane and wildly imaginative: I got a powder keg leg And my wig’s all pooped… for you. With my hat in my hand I’m a hungry man… for you I got stars in my beard And I feel real weird…. for you. - Mambo Sun He was cool because he never straightened his hair. His iconic look—corkscrew curls, top hat, boa, and glittery cheeks—continues to inspire generations of performers, from Slash to Stevie Nicks, from Cher to Twisted Sister, and now Ke$ha.” - Simon Doonan
You keep pointing out that no one in the show really has shocked reactions to the gems and their shenanigans and all the impossible stuff that's going on right in front of them. I think that's actually a really cool piece of worldbuilding because it shows that the gems are really a part of the show's setting. Like it shows that in Beach City weird magical gem stuff might not be Business As Usual but it's something that the general public is used to and accepts as possible.
I find it cool how the people aren’t weirded out by gem stuff. Both gems and humans exist together and humans have no problem with that, i would love seeing humans have a role in some gem shenanigans in the future.
