Imagine if GLaDOS sounded like Linda from Bob’s Burgers.

Classical mythology (mostly Greek/Roman) is extremely complicated. It’s not like the Bible, where there’s a written text we can work off of. There’s hundreds of versions of every myth, passed down orally, each version emphasizing what mattered to the teller. On top of that, it all had to be translated from Ancient Greek, and a lot gets changed in translation (probably even more translating Greek > English > Japanese), deliberately or not. It’s very difficult to get a really conclusive version of a given myth, and a scholar can spend years reading different versions of the same story. 

D’Aulaire’s Book of Greek Myths is for elementary school kids. It devotes a page to each myth, maybe a page and a half to the important ones. It has pictures.

is the gay dog anime out yet

digi-egg:

New Digimon Adventure Sequel has been announced for Spring 2015!

The new anime is set slighly in the future: Taichi and the original Chosen Children are around seventeen and in high school. This is merely an announcement trailer and shows no new footage or information. Happy Odaiba Day!

Heads up: This anime will probably not be called Adventure 03. The “02” in the first sequel was referencing the year the story took place, 2002; the fact that it was the second season was merely coincidence!

oh my god

what if the washed up detective in Terror in Resonance is working with his encyclopedic knowledge of classical mythology,  from years and years of study and hard work, hours squirreled away with books, sleepless nights spent making connections and building cross-cultural patterns

and Sphinx found a fourth-hand copy of D’Aulaire’s Mythology in a Goodwill and liked the pictures

hmm, which of these anime children will we see again, I wonder, it is a mystery

how the fuck am I supposed to discuss the theoretical gender of a character whose appellations are all distinctly female??

a trans interpretation of Lady Macbeth??

like instead of genderless Lady Macbeth or temporarily discarding femininity Lady Macbeth
trans but without the vocabulary to understand her dysphoria or the concept of transitioning, all this frustration at the difference between who she thinks she’s supposed to be a who she is, railing against womanhood because it wears on her like an itchy sweater, fueled by a desire to finally shake off this vague unnamed uneasiness that’s followed her since she first understood gender

trans Lady Macbeth??
