What Is The Shape Of Your Monster? – Get Out and Thought-out Horror

Get out.

No, I’m dead serious. If you haven’t already seen Jordan Peele’s Get Out yet, I need you to do me a massive favor. I need you to bookmark this page, close this page, and absolutely do not read this page— or any other essay or article on Get Out— until you’ve finished watching it.

I’m not just saying this because this essay will contain major spoilers for a movie that is best enjoyed going in knowing as little as possible— I mean, yes, it will— but most of all I just want as many people to see this movie as possible. It is by far the most socially relevant American movie to come out this year, at time of writing, if not one of the most socially relevant pieces of American art of the past decade.

It’s also just a very good movie.

Jake is hands-down my favourite Little Mix boyfriend/fiancé that any of the girls have ever had. Not only is he an absolute gentleman to Jesy, he gets along with the girls and is super supportive of them. Kudos to you, Mr Jake Roche

Okay but Diana being old enough that she’s talked with several of the ancient gods and alot of them like her. she’s charming, man. she’s all legendary and shit and the really impressive thing is Hera doesn’t hate her, which, at the end of the day, is all that really matters. 

Anyway, gods like heroes. It’s like mortal football for them. So they keep an eye on the JLA and pick favorites or complain of heroes they don’t like or whatever and sometimes they will literally zap themselves down from on high to tell Diana their OPINIONS. (ancient gods are actually really immature and spoiled like that)

So its like you’d expect, Hermes actually is pretty fond of Flash, Ares has a thing for Hal Jordan, Hera weirdly is rooting for Captain Marvel but Marvel is ridiculously popular with most of the pantheon, Hades and Persephone always put up for Batman which seems stereotypical and until you realize Hades is actually really nice and his wife is the one who will punch you. You’d think that Apollo would be bragging about Superman, the solar-powered badass, but… like…

No. Apollo hates Superman. Diana isn’t 100% sure why because he won’t articulate himself, but Superman has definitely punched out a physical manifestation of Apollo at least twice for interfering with stuff. They have to get Supes charmed with the equivilent of a magical anti-god restraining order so Apollo stops BOTHERING him. 

There’s no point to this. I just think that’s how it should be. 

My last blessing to Kootra

So, I came back from vacation and decided to check on Jordan’s tag one last time. That’s how I found out that Jordan is dating Stefani. I don’t watch the Creature Hub anymore and only check on Koots whether he posts something like “Cat goes fishing” or something other that catches my eye.

Even though I have absolutely no opinion on Stefani, I wish Jordan the very best. He’s been through A LOT… and possibly even more than he allowed us to know.

I watched him and the guys for years. And maybe a lot of you don’t know this but Jordan was basically the smelly scapegoat of the Creatures… and not in a funny nudge-nudge-fuck-you-jordan kind of way (like he’s now). The only person that was “less popular” than him was Dan (until Sly started publicly praise Dan for everything he does in hope he will change the way people perceived him… that’s one of the reasons I believe The Creatures started to crumble after Sly’s departure… but I digress…).

I always was rooting for Jordan and defending him, even though I didn’t know him personally. And it may sound extremely weird and sad but to me, he felt like a big cat brother-cousin from across the ocean. I watched him transform from a desperately needing attention ugly duckling to a Grade A “Catdaddy” … and I’m proud. Although I’m not proud of that comparison…

I always dreamed of meeting him in person and since I can’t travel myself, my only leverage was “The Witcher” (but Poland is too much of a “Detroit of Europe” for my dreams to come true). Sadly, I lost all hope it would ever happen. I immensely appreciated every interaction that I got with him. Whether he would reblog my art and gifs, answer a comment or even beautifully butcher my nickname on stream… I’m grateful for every moment.

I’m glad he finally made his dream of joining the Rooster Teeth family. Even thought I always was opposed to this idea. The Creatures as a group caught my interest because they were “just a group of goofy friends having fun and playing games”… yeah, I know, you probably heard this a thousand times but deal with me this last time.

I’m glad he started being healthy and work out. Now he needs no milkshake to bring all the boys (and girls!) to the yard.

And I’m glad that he got “a fresh chance for love”…. ah, sorry for that cheesy line, but I’m too tired and lazy to elaborate. Hopefully, you’ll get what I mean.

There’s so much more I wish to say but I’m afraid I would write an epos of some sort…


Thank you Jordan (First of His Name, King of the Cats and the First Meows, Lord of the Seven Browns, and protector of the Mead Realm)

Thank you for all the happy moments and laughs you gave me. Even though you made me mad on several occasions.

May the meows be ever in your favour!

I hope our paths will cross again somehow.
