Photos of the Adventure Time exhibition for my last trip in Taiwan (*”･∀･)ﾉ
It was pretty expensive for such a small exhibition I guess, but it was so satisfying to see all the characters turning into 1:1 figures, and all the chibi versions of locations like the Tree Fort and Candy Kingdom in real life! Prefect for bringing your kids and take funny photos with the characters indeed.
They really have an eye for details as well, like the hidden Snail and drawings in Marcelline’s house. I spent so much effort on Snail hunting that a stuff actually asked me if I’ve dropped something!
Also yeah if you have been wondering, Adventure Time is really popular in Taiwan! They play it every night for 2 hours straight on their local Cartoon Network channels, and even produced their own toy snacks with miniature legos. It’s as popular as Pokemon in Japan \@u@/
if theres one thing ive learned form adventure time it’s that it is very difficult to label people as black and white heroes or villains, if not impossible. everyone has their complex reasons for doing what they do. it is up to you to decide if those reasons justify the action.
Finn: Yeah, what are Lub Glubs, exactly?
Susan: They… umm, look, they like this. [Draws an obscure picture with her finger on the boat wood]
Jake: That looks like… my father. …Now I’m crazy!
It is father Jake. It is your father.
I hear you on that. I was having some trouble writing that response keeping in mind specifically her connections with Billy’s gauntlet and the Enchiridion from early seasons, not to mention the amulet that Shoko stole in The Vault.
So I went back and watched those episodes in particular and something that I noticed was: she never explicitly refers to any one of those things - the Enchiridion, the Gauntlet of the Hero, the Mortal Folly gems, the googoomamameter, or the amulet - as ‘magical’.
Repeating the Wizards Only, Fools GIF, the opinion that she puts forth is ‘magic exists, it just has a scientific and quantifiable explanation’. Her problem is pretending that magic is anything that simply can’t be understood and explained.
At the beginning of the episode, she gave a little more context to clarify that:
That’s the sense in which she hates magic. She’s rather earthy in that way. Ultimately, she refused to say ‘Wizards rule’ and show support for an attitude that she wholly disapproves of. Now, in Five Short Graybles, she DOES get a bit witchy…
…and this may sound like a cop out [I’m honestly just offering it in lieu of hard evidence], but it’s possible that, as she’s wearing her lab coat and goggles, she’d just initiated a chemical reaction and was ~performing a spell~ in jest while waiting for the reaction to finish. It wouldn’t be the only time.
It’s tricky to place Peppermint Butler’s magic on PB’s scale of ‘hating magic’ vs. accepting ‘magical’ outcomes as science, but we wager it’s still likely to be a deal-breaker for PB. PepBut’s connections and abilities, at least to us, paint him as a potential threat to her kingdom should his loyalties ever stray.
I’m waiting for regular show to come on at 10:30 so I’m just watching adventure time and this is the most fucked up show I’ve ever seen what even is this I would never let my kids watch this shit
Adventure Time actually has really great themes and morals to their story. The only reason I wouldn’t let kids watch it is because some of it may be too graphic/scary for the younger audience. Regular Show is wayyyy worse than AT anyways. Don’t get me wrong, I love it, but it’s a lot more blunt and aggressive than AT and it’s morals are usually more questionable.
Anyone else noticed that Pokéball in Adventure Time tonight??
Book of Poisons
So you’ve been bitten by a venomous monster. Time to die. Just kidding. That’s a bit of venomous bite humor calm you down, as a low pulse is critical to surviving a bite. More on that later. Do not be worried. You’ve got this book on venom and antidotes, and it is excellent. You’re going to be alright…
Venomous Bites in Society and Culture
Cleopatra, one character in an Arthur Conan Doyle story; what do these characters have in common? These are fictional characters that have died of venomous bites that could be found within a short internet search. What else do they all have in common? They did not possess this fantastic book on venom and antidotes. Mistake number one. This book is really good you guys. It’s questionable whether or not fictional characters created after this book can die of venomous bites. We believe readers would find it unrealistic
- Grab Venomous Creature
- Poke Teeth Into the net above the cup
- Push down on back of the head
- Milk Dat Creature
- Make Anti-Venom
- You’re Okay Now
- Don’t Get Bit Again, Please
I too would like to possess this fantastic book on venom and antidotes.
