I’ve undoubtedly blathered on about Questionable Content several times by now. Hell, the Websnark guy talks about this comic all the time as well. (He got me hooked on it. Just goes to show that Eric’s got good taste…) But tonight’s comic just called out for snarking.
Every so often, Faye and Marten start going on about a topic, be it indie music, emo, or whatever. It doesn’t really hit me because I don’t categorize music. If I like it, I like it. If I don’t, I ignore it. And if it’s Rap, I leave the vicinity as soon as possible because I detest it so much (and please, don’t tell me about its cultural value or anything like that. To me, rap is a poetry slam set to music, and half of it is angry poetry set to music. I prefer singing with melody more than rhythm. If you like it, power to you. I mean, I like Meatloaf, and I’ve several friends who claim they’d rather have an icepick through their head than listen to Meatloaf. Power to them). But music videos… those I can understand.
Not that I watch many music videos, but the ones I have seen have stood out. (And I also loooove Anime Music Videos. I swear, the people who do those have creativity seeping out their pores… but I’ll tangent on AMVs later.) So when Marten and Faye start talking about Pintsize playing piano on the beach, with exposition of happier times… I can see and hear that. And of course, what with Pintsize’s recent… relationship problem with another male AnthroPC (what makes an AnthroPC male or female or none of the above is a switch the owner sets. The PCs don’t really see it being as big an issue – or at least that’s what Pintsize claims), the end result… again, I could see Pintsize, wearing a tophat and wailing away on a Les Paul guitar while getting struck by lightning… sheer beauty, man. Sheer beauty.
