You just have to Look

The gods haven’t left us, but some say they are forgotten

Zeus roars his battle cry as lightning strikes skyscrapers and thunder rolls over corn fields and grassy plains.

Hera sings a lullaby to the crying newborn babies every night and hold the hand of those born early, those fighting to survive.

Artemis screams her protest in the voices of every woman, young and old, as they raise their fists for equality.

Demeter whistles through the streets of cities, rustling the leaves of scarce trees, reminding the concrete jungle of the jungles around them.

Poseidon bellows through the foghorns of steam ships, cruise liners and cargo ships as they dock into the harbour.

Hephaestus hammers his forge’s red fires with the punch of a time-clock and in the muscles strains of the working man.

Apollo blasts his voice through every headphone, earbud and speaker turned way too loud.

Ares’ battle cry echoes through a stadium as the crowd cheers after a national anthem is played.

Aphrodite whispers in the giggles and “I love you"s said between lovers intimating.

Hermes laughs in the roar of every engine and the gurgle of gasoline through the pump.

Dionysus cheers in the spirit of every young person celebrating themselves and making their lives enjoyable.

Athena hums in the silence of a late night library visit, in the turn of a page and the scratch of a pen.

Hestia smiles in every host saying “come in”, in every oven’s beeping, and the sigh of relaxation in ones home.

Hades beams in every dark humoured joke, in every Halloween night, and in every morning after.

They say the gods are gone, forgotten and a world away.
But they are here, if you look for them.

“If I saw a person smile, that to me was payment in itself. If I could make them laugh when they were very sad, it was the greatest payment to me.”

-The Man of 1000 voices, Mel Blanc

“He devoted a lot of time to ailing children in hospitals. I think he really had a great affect in doing so, even if it just made them feel better for just a minute, he did. We had to try to get him to leave first of all, he would spend all day doing it. There would be times I would say, ‘Mel, we gotta go, it’s getting dark, we have to get back on the road.’ When there were children in that situation you couldn’t get him to walk away.”

-Assistant to Mel Blanc, Sophia Sprock

This and the Mighty Mouse are soooooooooooooooooooo disappointing. With the first page of the Mighty Mouse and the variant covers of the DC/Looney Tunes Specials, the comics companies are saying, Here is the cartoon comics you really want, for one image, but we are going to give you this lameness for the rest of the issue instead. 

All of the DC Hanna Barbera Annuals A-Stories were great. Snagglepuss was good but short. Jetsons was fine, but I wish had character designs they did turn arounds with. Top Cat was disturbing. With bad DC character designs for Batman and Catwoman. Ruff and Reddy was fine. So these might not suck, but…

What if comic companies were not afraid of Cartoon Comics? 

anonymous asked:

I feel like they ought to have an episode focusing entirely on Carl. Not just as a side character that everyone else has to deal with, but as the main character telling the story. Something focusing primarily on the struggles that an autistic person might face, because it's important both for autistic and non autistic people to see what they go through to better understand them.

that’s a good point. like, it’s a good step to have autistic characters in the cast in general but, like you said, having them be a side-character that people Deal With isn’t… the best they could do. having autistic characters take center stage and tell their own stories is important as well.

and it doesn’t necessarily have to be just struggles, either. like, there could be an episode about stimming and stim toys and how those things can be soothing and fun and expressive, y’know?

“In other words, the implied author is the kind of person you think wrote the story, judging purely from the story. It may not have anything to do with the actual person. For instance, my implied author version of Robert Heinlein resembles Foghorn Leghorn.”
