“We deserve it” rubs me the wrong way, sends chills up my spine, makes my skin crawl in the same way as chalk screeching on a chalkboard does.

As a consumer of art, television, literature, music, film, etc., enjoy it, love it, revel in it, relate to it, dislike it, critique it, but make no mistake, you do not deserve it. None of us do.

Artists, writers, musicians, filmmakers, producers, creators do NOT owe you a specific storyline, lyric, romantic pairing, or plot.

They’re creators. They create. They imagine worlds that we get to enjoy or dislike. Places we can escape to, have opinions about, but still DO NOT DESERVE.

How entitled and selfish is that? To think you’re deserving of a creator, fanfic writer, producer, or actor to cater to your desires and will.

Reality check… disagree with something, like it, dislike it all you want, consume as much of whatever form of media is your vice, but your specific wants and desires–even if more than one person shares your viewpoint–still doesn’t DESERVE to be catered to.

You’re a consumer. We are consumers. We consume.

Unless you’re paying for a commission or signing paychecks every month as a patron of the arts, you don’t get to dictate what someone else creates. And even then you’re still not deserving of it, you’re a patron.

You know how the entire Autistic community is getting increasingly frustrated by our representation in the media, and how we’re all asking for better representation?
Well, I’m doing something shocking. I’m channelling my special interest, musical theatre, and writing a show about, wait for it, a girl with Aspergers with a single dad and an arts based special interest, with the working title “Spectrum”. It’ll take years to write, as many shows do, but I’m letting the community know now that one of us is trying to change things. I’m promising you now, I will do my best to portray us. I’m one of you and we deserve our stories to be told. I’m just doing it the only way how. Hopefully that makes up for some of the abominations we’ve seen in film and TV.

Let Me Introduce You To Someone Named Morticia Addams.

Oh Look! Another well-written female character with lots of personality in a famous franchise! That’s right in today’s post we’re looking at a lady character from one of my favorite fucking franchises ever: Morticia Addams. [Wednesday’s post will be coming soon don’t you worry]

First off: Morticia is in a franchise that in addition to the original comic strip includes TV adaptations, film adaptions, video game adaptations, book adaptations, a musical adaptation and The best-selling pinball game pf all time. All of which Morticia is featured in as The Addams Family’s deadly but pleasant matriarch. She’s part of the most beautiful marriage ever seen on TV [She and Gomez are one of my three OTPs] and despite Gomez being the ‘official head’ it’s clearly Morticia who truly rules the family.

She’s elegant, beautiful, fiercely loyal, subtle and the one to take action when something goes wrong. [See the Addams Family film to see what i mean] She has hobbies such as cutting off the heads of roses, feeding her African Strangler Cleopatra and strumming a Japanese shamisen. She may be creepy and kooky but that’s what makes her awesome as well as the world’s greatest TV mum.

Vivaldi’s Four Seasons

Light, bright, and cheerful. It’s some of the most familiar of all early 18th century music. It’s been featured in uncounted films and television commercials, but what is it and why does it sound that way? “The Four Seasons”, by Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi, are famous in part because they are a delight to the ear. However, even more notable is the fact that they have stories to tell. 

At the time of their publication in Amsterdam in 1725, they were accompanied by poems describing exactly what feature of that season Vivaldi intended to capture in musical terms. The birds welcome spring with happy song, but soon, a thunderstorm breaks out. Not only is there musical thunder and lightning, there are also more birds, wet, frightened, and unhappy.

In “Summer,” the turtle dove sings her name “tortorella” in Italian, before a hail storm flattens the fields. “Autumn” brings eager hunters dashing out in pursuit of their prey. 

The “Winter” concerto begins with teeth chattering in the cold before one takes refuge by a crackling fire. Then it’s back out into the storm where there’ll be slips and falls on the ice. In these first weeks of winter, the old year is coming to a close, and so does Vivaldi’s musical exploration of the seasons. 

Not until the early 19th century would such expressive instrumental program music, as it was known, become popular. By then, larger, more varied ensembles were the rule with woodwinds, brass, and percussion to help tell the tale. But Vivaldi pulled it off with just one violin, strings, and a harpsichord. Unlike his contemporary Bach, Vivaldi wasn’t much interested in complicated fugues. He preferred to offer readily accessible entertainment to his listeners with melodies that pop back up later in a piece to remind us of where we’ve been. So the first movement of the “Spring” concerto begins with a theme for spring and ends with it, too, slightly varied from when it was last heard. 

It was an inspired way to attract listeners, and Vivaldi, considered one of the most electrifying violinists of the early 18th century, understood the value of attracting audiences. Even in the composer’s own time, Vivaldi’s music served as diversion for all, not just for the wealthy aristocrats. 300 years later, it’s an approach that still works, and Vivaldi’s music still sounds like trotting horses on the move.

Hello there!

I am at University in my second year studying Media with Film & TV.
I’m interested in doing this as I would love to get into contact with interesting, open minded people all over the world to discuss anything and everything! It would be great to get to know you and hear about your daily lives as well as exchanging photos. I really enjoy listening to, and getting to know new people!

My interests include:
Listening to a lot of music (The Beatles, Mac DeMarco,Tame Impala, Ben Howard, Frank Ocean to name a few). Attempting to learn the guitar, slowly haha. Taking photos. My dog, but I do love all dogs! Reading, in particular anything by Jack Kerouac. Nights out with friends! Watching Films (American Beauty, Dazed and Confused, Donnie Darko) and Television (The Simpsons, Peep Show, Black Mirror, Friends, Freaks and Geeks, Stranger Things, The Office!). Playing football!

My dream is to buy a camper van and travel the world in it! The world just fascinates me with all it’s beauty and I love to talk about it and hear about other people’s adventures.

In summary if any of this sounds remotely interesting to you and you think we could get on well, I’d love to hear from you!

Peace! :-)

Preferences: No preferences really, maybe just being at least 18!

Oh yeah and nobody likes small talk let’s talk about deep and interesting things we are passionate about!
