My roommate is watching the new Dark Crystal show and, like, all respect to the amazing puppetry going on here
I have trouble relating to or being interested in these puppets that have no microexpressions to parse...
#its hard to care about them with little emotional expression #and like... they are emoting pretty well for a puppet! #but its not enough for me to really relate to or care about them #its hard to build suspense when the puppet upset about this major threat to the world #has teh same facial expression as the puppet standing in the corner who doesnt know whats going on #visually its awesome and well done i just cant bring myself to care!
I'm clairvoyant and idgaf what any skeptic has to say about it.
So yesterday my gf was having a poor mental health day and just feeling totally butts. They decided to go for a drive in the evening to clear their head, get out of the house a bit, try to lift their mood.
and idk why, there was no reason for it, but I had the thought "this isn't going to end well" but shook it off as just unwarranted pessimism and existential dread
No, turns out they blew out a tire on a pothole and had to wait for friends to come rescue them and now they gotta buy a new tire and deal with all the drama that comes with unpleasant adventures like that
I didn't know it was going to happen
but i totally knew something was going to happen.
#I get these feelings a lot and they are often right #'i fucking called it' is something my roommate hears regularly #he is very tolerant of listening to predictions about things he doesnt give a shit about #just so i can have the triumph of later saying #'hey remember when i said blahblahblah? yeah i was right. totally called it.' #(and to be clear i consider myself a skeptic. i dont believe in this kinda thing until the evidence smacks me in the face) #(but i have been on this earth 35 years now and this has happened too many times to ignore)4 notes
