*** Now talking in #suburbansenshi
Topic is -= Re-enactors are creepy =-
[02:27] <// J_Daito //> Ten'ou how many emo kids does it take to change a lightbulb
[02:27] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> how many
[02:28] <// J_Daito //> none they just sit in the dark and cry
[02:28] <The Catman> You know what bugs me?
[02:28] * The Catman is now known as =^catablanca^=
[02:28] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Overfilled litterbox?
[02:28] <=^catablanca^=> no i mean, yeah... i mean... listen
[02:29] <=^catablanca^=> This is so strange to me
[02:29] <=^catablanca^=> I Watch TV and movies all the time, you know... actors playing roles, pretending to be someone else.
[02:29] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Yeah so
[02:30] <=^catablanca^=> But then there are these shows where people re-enact famous historical characters, and they come on TV, and get interviewed, and to me it's just surreal and creepy.
[02:30] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Dude the reason is obvious.
[02:30] <=^catablanca^=> ?
[02:31] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> Look, when you're watching a flick, say about Abraham Lincoln, it's set in 1860's America
[02:31] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> But when you watch the s[BLEEP]t you're talking about, it's like you're watching the Today show and Bryant Gumble is like
[02:31] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> "Oh LOOK, today, fresh out of the GRAVE is the walking DEAD MAN Abraham LINCOLN! How ya doin' Abe?"
[02:32] * // J_Daito // is now known as Abraham Lincoln
[02:32] <Abraham Lincoln> Shucks, Bryant, I'm just so gosh-durn good!
[02:33] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> That's great Abe, so what are your perspectives on the Cotton Gin?
[02:33] <Abraham Lincoln> Well I Think that sociologically
[02:33] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> WHO THE f[BLEEP]k CARES WHAT YOU THINK!? YOU'RE NOT ABE LINCOLN, THIS ISN'T 1863, and NO ONE HAS SEEN A COTTON GIN IN AGES
[02:34] * Abraham Lincoln is now known as // J_Daito //
[02:35] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> I mean it's f[BLEEP]king uncanny and stupid
[02:35] * =^catablanca^= nods
[02:36] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> I mean you get modern guys walking up to "historical figures" easy as you please and all polite and unaffected, like "Hello Mr. Nero, how did it feel to have an affair with YOUR SISTER, sexy? Cool!
[02:37] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> I have less trouble believing the guy in the mickey mouse suit IS A LIVING MOUSE than to believe that Tommy Jefferson is somehow alive and running around Colonial Williamsburg
[02:38] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> And it just looks STUPID when people on TV pretend otherwise. It doesn't help that the production values are s[BLEEP]t, like it's a NEWS ROOM in full 21st century gear and yet here comes GENGHIS KHAN in leapoard skins or whatever the hell they wore back then
[02:38] <=^catablanca^=> I feel better about myself now, thanks!
[02:39] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> I mean it's like people watching "Sabrina the Teenage Witch" and actually BELIEVING she was having a conversation with a f[BLEEP]king TALKING CAT
[02:39] <=^catablanca^=> ...........................................
[02:39] <--=[ SpeedRcrX ]=--> sorry no offense
