Questions & stray thoughts

1. Why do I keep seeing the words "Steven Universe" on Tumblr? Was it created by Amy Schumer? These are both things that seem to have appeared out of nowhere this summer and convinced everyone they should be talked about a lot. Except I don't see any pictures of it or regular fandom talk, just people talking arguing about what these "gems" mean.

I've concluded it's a cartoon about floating gemstones with faces pasted on who discuss relationships at great length but in vague terms, leading people to argue constantly what said gems' genders and sexualities are, for some weird reason probably related to why Bronies exist.

2. It's also probably a young person's thing I should be ignoring. As inspired by this post I found the other day that I cannot stop laughing at:
Reblog if you use Tumblr and you're over 30

3. I don't know if you heard but eighty million months ago I posted about episodes 7 and 8 of Sleepy Hollow season 2. I totally posted them then. They weren't private or just completed today or anything. There's a link to #7 with explanation in #8, so go there first.

4. I've been casually, kind of out of nowhere, watching The Middle again. I just saw an episode where we saw Colin Firth in the dentist's office, so if I pretend Frankie still gets to see him every day, I might feel a little better. Then again, I also just found out that Sue and Darrin are still apparently dating until well into or possibly even the end of season 6, and I am pretty sure that is a grosser crime against humanity than getting rid of the dog.

I'm mostly posting now because those 2 episodes with Axl & Cassidy were so darling and heart-fulfilling. That one where he's talking to her on the phone and he has the cutest smile of contentment on his face? Happiest moment. I'm totally down for a week of hooking up in unspecified ways before parting ways forever. I'm also continuing to love The Adventures of Axl & Hutch.

Also, Annoyed-About-Having-To-Act-This-Way Protective Brother Axl is pretty much the only mileage I've ever gotten out of Sue/Darrin. I quite liked him shutting the door in his friend's face for causing her to go to Prom alone and upset about it. As I liked him standing up to the pastor in defense of his family's ability to be there for each other when it counts. He just gets better every year, really.
do not hurt

And of course, I still love all things Mike, Frankie, and Mike/Frankie. I have deeply missed the reflection of ordinary, relatively realistic Midwestern family life that this series provides. It's like Neil Flynn was born for this role. As iconic a character as The Janitor was, lately it's weird to go back and see him in Scrubs.
