Kind of like how Twilight has created a "real" version of the vampire that leads tweenagers to leave disparaging reviews on Bram Stoker's anime page, or the complaints that The Hunchback of Notre Dame is nothing like the Disney version.  Or people even assuming that it was a disgustingly grimdark story inspired by Disney and riding on its coattails.  It's an adaptation masquerading as the original and enjoying an atmosphere of preference.

Why does the original have responsibility to resemble the derivative?  That doesn't make sense.  And there's nothing wrong with people enjoying one version more than another--that's a matter of taste. But to me, deciding to act like the inspiring source doesn't exist--which is what happens when you refuse to recognize any differences between what you've produced and the source, and then authoritatively call your product "professional-looking manga" and the like--is sickening.

Forgive me if I intercede (or something along the lines of cut in [in probably a bad way due to wording]) but I'll take note that (well, the whole basis of this post is on the bolded part) there are differences back then, and differences now.

Back then, the concept was new. There was no backing, no background, and generally a hard and vague idea of what its origin was about (creation of manga and its..err, realism[?]). Compared to said reviews--those (reviews) are just utterly wrong because those things in that context had a background and origin to base on. (I mean bloody hell. Disparaging Bram Stroker because of...THAT?! Yeah, more than enough to irk consistent knowledge)

Related to the thread, that's what I'm mad about--it irks me that people replace what they see instead of what they understand as conceptual fact. Things that 'are', to them, that is. That, and probable unsorted information regarding how I notice a great culture change regarding how people value information...is unsettling.

I don't know how to word it better but the gist is: I am annoyed at how people assume things 'are' how they are today, and take it as that instead of delving back into the past and in the very least appreciating the roots at which what things exist now, are now. I am irked at how superficial thoughts go, nowadays, but that's connected to mass media--and countered by me being happy in the library awaaaaay from all that.

Got stuck at work for an extra hour because my boss is a tyrannical bitch. Came home all pissed off and did an-hour long application for another job (personal banker.) Meanwhile, Wolfeyez is napping in the chair, because in my KILLRAEGBLURBHDLAHD, I've been inadvertently ignoring her. I AM SO STUPID. >:C

On top of that, I've now read through Vector's posts in the sad thread, and am very willing to murder both her ex and her parents.

So.....today was a good day?


It wasn't today that this happened, but it was close to it, so meh. My Geography teacher wanted to go over my revision notes, some of which I had been given in my old school. Now, this teacher was a very small person, and fit the stereotype of such people very well. She was short, angry, grumpy and over all annoying. But I was one of the few in her semi-good books because I was the only one who actually did some semblance of work (I am amazed myself). Now, she combed through the stuff I had tentatively provided, picking out the bits she hadn't given me. "What are these?" She says tersely, and so I explain.

She says she wants to keep these to check them for relevancy later. I don't see much wrong with this, and so she takes them. The next day, some of my friends come out of her other geography class proudly bearing what they called "The best notes we have ever gotten off of her" I was intrigued, and looked. Imagine how annoyed/angry I was when I saw she had photocopied all my notes and passed them off as hers?

Really, what this "Rage" is about is the fact that the common decencies in life were spread out unequally at birth.
