Mass media really is something else.
Like, before Internet, before TV, before radio, before telegraph, maybe even before the printing press, the weirdest shit could happen anywhere in the world at any time, and almost nobody would ever know about it. Then the geeks took over and now people of like interests can finally get together and share what they’re into. This inevitably leads to subculture mash-ups, and the neat thing about those is that culture is naturally very sticky — you can just keep glomming stuff onto it, and that’s fine, you just made bigger culture.
Hence, Deadlift Lolita:
I think I was right about it, insofar as I actually really said anything.
I’ll give the Beard this: Dude knows how to have a good time with it. That looks fun! Though I wonder how far that gimmick can be extended; you can theme a lot of stuff around working out/fighting/etc., sure, but … is it going to be kind of an ongoing project, or are we into Okilly Dokilly territory here?
