I’ve come to a point in my life where I can’t accept reality. We live in an appalling world full of countless grief, social injustice, poverty, and cruelty. And I can’t look at it anymore. So my new approach to life, to avoid getting angry and bitter and sad about the way the world is, is to get as weird as possible. To get as weird as I can comfortably make it and as far away from reality as I can without letting too much light in. As I understand why I need to do this in my life, I look at musicians, artists, and filmmakers who people refer to as mad eccentrics and off the wall, I get it now. This is how people deal with reality. This is why fantasy is so important in the world.
“As a kid, I never saw the Life With Loopy short ‘Larry’s Girl’ as Nick didn’t play the KaBlam episode it was in very often. Now that I’ve seen it, it’s my favorite Loopy short ever. Not only because Larry and Stacy were a cute couple, but because it pretty much sent the message that no matter what odd interests you’re obsessed with, there’s someone out there just as big a fan as you are. As an Aspie, it’s really important to me.”
