#REMEMBER0416

Today is the 3rd anniversary of Sewol Ferry Disaster in South Korea. Out of 304 deceased victims, 250 were innocent high school children who were on a school trip. And it’s 1PM here in my time zone, when one of the high school student Jung Cha Woong, was dead.

Please remember their despair.

Florida sheriff Grady Judd, who represents a county in the path of the strongest hurricane ever recorded in the Atlantic, offered a stark warning for anyone thinking about going to a local shelter: If there’s a warrant out for your arrest, you could wait out the hurricane in jail. (source)

PLEASE do not be fooled by the disingenuous lie that he *really* meant to scare pedophiles away—who often do not have outstanding arrest warrants, and who may have innocent children who (surprise) also need shelter from hurricane Irma—if that’s what he meant, he could have said that originally. Sheriff Judd absolutely meant to scare undocumented immigrants away. From seeking shelter. From perhaps the biggest hurricane in history.

What a piece of shit.

And not so incidentally, statistically speaking, undocumented immigrants tend to commit fewer crimes than U.S. citizens, specifically *because* they don’t want to be deported by racist, overzealous police officers like Joe Arpaio and Grady Judd. (source)

Color Correspondences

As an artist I found color correspondences on this site to be so USEFUL, except they’re missing so much! The more I dug the more it seemed that way across the board. I didn’t feel for my practice that bright red and dark red evoked the same reaction, so I opted to make my own correspondence list. 

Every color on this doc was carefully selected to be representative of that “group” of colors, ie. bright pink or neon blue, with each color including an hex code that best sums up that color group. Color correspondences were taken not only from pre-existing materials, but from research (still ongoing) surrounding that color. This includes areas the color is found in nature, art or the world, as well as emotional responses evoked in myself.  Found Here (My Correspondences Doc, which includes many sources used for colors!)

For my practice this list is used across candles, fiber and art.

David was lying in “Jasper Dies At The End”

So it’s general assumption that the story David told in “Jasper Dies At The End” was a complete lie and, not gonna lie? There is SO MUCH evidence for this.

Take note of how everything is oddly exaggerated and unnatural in the story

The way the counselors say “Oh no! Not Davey!” “He’s such a troublemaker!” sounds very. Exaggerated. Like they’re reacting to a Saturday Morning Cartoon villain. 

David’s “trouble making” actions are also the sort of things David would see as problems. Insulting nature, using words like “dang”, littering, etc. 
Plus the way one of the current counselors says ”Oh Davey! You have so much potential! If only you would apply yourself!”
It REALLY sounds like David is trying to make an impression on Max, or send him some sort of message.

Take David’s childhood actions versus Max’s.
David says dang, litters, and insults nature
Max swears like a sailor, literally starts a camp revolt, and tries to run away a lot.
These sort of things would fly over David’s head and just come off as a grumpy kid who hates nature,

But David’s behavior isn’t the only thing he lied about. I think he also lied about how Jasper died.

The scars on his chest from the bear attack are parallel to a few scratches from the photo in episode 11. Not to mention how as a ghost, whenever he’s scared Jasper tends to cover up his chest:

These wounds were left open for the entire night, there’s NO WAY Jasper would’ve survived that. Either Jasper had died in the bear cave, or on his way back to the camp.
Additionally, according to David’s story that picture in episode 11 would not be accurate. If David really WAS a grumpy troublesome kid, he wouldn’t be smiling in it. However if the picture was taken AFTER this event, Jasper wouldn’t be smiling because he said he thinks the camp sucks at the end of the episode.

I’m absolutely POSITIVE that David lied about this entire story. He was never a trouble maker and Jasper did NOT survive that bear attack. But why lie? Well, the kids asked why he got that medallion. 

He can’t say he doesn’t want to talk about it, that’d seem suspicious. So why not lie to protect these poor innocent children from the truth of your childhood friends gruesome death, while avoiding sounding suspicious? Maybe the truth is that medallion belong to his old friend Jasper, and he didn’t want to let it go as it serves as a reminder of their good times together.

Additional notes I didn’t have any idea where I should put this in:

-The episode title is a lie. “Jasper Dies At The End”. That doesn’t happen. Jasper in this story does not die. Just like David’s story, the title of this is a lie, and our storyteller is an unreliable narrator.
-Maybe it was just a joke but child David’s voice seriously sounds like an older man attempting to do an impression of a small boy. It could be a hint towards this just being a made up story, or I’m just over analyzing and this is just a joke for the episode. Who knows!

TL;DR: David’s story in Jasper Dies At The End was a HUGE lie and Jasper died because of the bear attack. There are multiple contradictions and oddly exaggerated points within the episode that support this.

Loopholes in Cosmic Law

DM: Just before [Inquisitor] kills him, the demonic giant turns to [Aasimar Summoner] and quickly shouts, “IsurrenderinaccordancetotheancientlawsoftheConclave!” and then the sword goes through his back and he dies instantly.

Human Rogue: Oh fuck you, you legal exploitative bitch!

Human Inquisitor: What? What’s wrong, what happened?

Rogue: No, I know what he tried to do! He knew he couldn’t beat us, so with his last breath, he tried to game the cosmic legal system, or whatever, to screw us over, because he’s a dick! 

Inquisitor: Oh my god, it’s like that Family Guy bit where Osama bin Laden shouts “IacceptJesusasmylordandsavior!” before he got shot!

DM: The corpse of the giant suddenly is lifted up, as if by puppet strings, and starts speaking in a new voice: “Bringing harm to the innocent, slaying our children without mercy… Hahaha… How does it feel to become what you fight?”

Summoner: “You seriously expect me to feel guilt over this? A giant who blindly followed orders from demons, mercilessly slaughtered the people of this village, attempted to kill me and my companions, and then knowingly surrendered moments before his death purely out of spite? He surrendered to me, but that action did not extend to my allies. The laws do not account for practical impossibilities.”

DM: “Well that will be for the Conclave to decide, will it not?”

Medium: “Oh go fuck yourself!” and I cut off the head.

Summoner: “If he truly did intend to surrender, I would have accepted it. Now, in the words of my companion, ‘go fuck yourself’.”

(Later, the Summoner woke up with a shiny golden letter on her chest. It was from the conclave, basically saying, “It’s fine, we’re not coming after you for what happened, your defense is solid, and that case was bullshit.”)

Rogue: “Man, I wish the human legal system was that smart.”

i. Aphrodite has given up on love. She listens to boys yelling obscene things at innocent girls. She can be found serving drinks at the local bar to broken women and spitting poisonous words at the filthy gentlemen next to them.
ii. Apollo dreads the moment the sun rises. Because when the sun goes up, his local late night show ends and his hour of fame comes to a close. He can be found spending his days, sitting on a park bench asking for loose change and wishing his poetry was good enough.
iii. Ares doesn’t understand war anymore. All he sees is needless bloodshed and brutal homicide based upon abhorrent racial cleansing and childish disagreements. He can be found weeping over the destruction of schools and the murder of innocent children.
iv. Artemis doesn’t hunt game anymore. She carries a switchblade and mace, prepared to fight off any boy harassing a girl with intoxicated footsteps. She can be found holding back girl’s hair as they vomit up their insecurities while sobs wrack their body into the next morning.
v. Athena has stopped believing in reason. When there’s international conflict concerning who marries who and a nationwide crisis about the newest fashion, reason just doesn’t seem applicable anymore. She can be found protesting with college students about real problems.
vi. Dionysus can’t help the madness. When the frequency of mental illness - in children nonetheless, has become so high? What’s the point? He can be found at the same pub and same seat as always; drinking the same dry whisky wishing everything would be the same as it used to be.
vii. Hades can’t stand jewels anymore. Emeralds reflect the envy and greed of humanity while rubies reflect their sexual and blood lust. He can be found rolling his eyes at people begging for their lives in the allies while human demons hunt them down for materialistic ends.
viii. Hephaestus has developed a hatred of fire. It does nothing but steal. It steal oxygen from the air and steal people from their families. Fire does not give it takes. He can be found saving everything he can from fire’s wrath, but will later choke on the smoke of his cigarette.
ix. Hermes can’t stand traveling. His legs are weak and his eyes are strained. He’s carried too many messages to people about the death of loved ones and the love letters are scarce. He can be found stealing, not money, but of their hope and strength because he’s hasn’t any left.

The gods are among us and they can’t survive. Why should I?

—  “Modern Mythology” by Maggie McCloskey 

Mother, he touches me as if I am
the silver over which he rules.

Mother, he stares at me as if I am
more fearsome than all the creatures
in his kingdom.

Mother, he worships me as if I am the
only goddess he knows.

Mother, he holds me as if I am fragile
but kisses me as if I am stronger than
Atlas himself.

Mother, his eyes are precious stones
I fear they’re worth more than all my
flowers Above.

Mother, his rare smile shines brighter
than Apollo’s sun.

Mother, he tells me I am a queen and
places a crown of flowers and iron and
bones upon my head.

Mother, his laughter is water and I am
the thirstiest I have ever been.

Mother, his touch is golden and I am
rich.

Mother, his anger shakes our kingdom
whole and thrills my very bones.

Mother, he tells me rage is natural and
takes me to his Fields of Punishment to
scream it away.

Mother, he’s shown me even the dead
can bleed and given me control of
justice.

Mother, he’s watched me rip limbs from
the dead and kissed the blood from my
fingers and still found me beautiful.

Mother, his skin is ice and I am melting it.

Mother, he is a maze and I have lost
myself in him.
