If you haven’t heard, Spike TV is filming a new television series named “American Digger” featuring “the American Savage team, led by former professional wrestler-turned-modern- day relic hunter Ric Savage as they scour target-rich areas, such as battlefields and historic sites, in hopes of striking it rich by unearthing and selling rare pieces of American history.” (their press release)
Preservation Virginia supports the SAA on this issue. SAA unequivocally opposes the American Digger show to be aired on Spike, finding it to be “contrary to the ethics of American archaeological practice, highly destructive, and possibly illegal.”
Oh fuck no. This is all kinds of wrong and inappropriate.
YOOOOOOOOOO What The Fuuuuuck
OKAY I WILL GIVE THEE THE BENEFIT OF THE DOUBT in that you MAY have some professionalism on your side in the handling of these artifacts, but why would I watch some shindig about some dudes bumbling around America and getting rich off uncertified digs? I don’t wanna see you mine up all these awesome historical relics without explaining their context. In short: What the loving fuck is the point of this show?
God one thing that really really fucking steams my buns is the whole
“Looks don’t matter, it’s what inside that counts”
thing that is repeatedly promoted over and over again with every goddamn form of media. Yes I understand you want to teach our children not to be shallow but good job you’ve done this thing where you decided to promote
“Hey let’s shit on having preferences” because apparently having preferences is shallow?
Like I don’t see anything wrong with some guy saying “Hey I like looking at skinny girls with big boobs and big hips” at all honestly because there is a huge difference in “I like dating skinny girls” and “I think all girls should be skinny.” And yes I know wow society promotes people to look a certain way but let’s try not to override that with you’re a shallow fuck if you admit to liking a certain look at all. It’s why friendzoning is such a huge fucking thing now because you have to accept everyone without bias now because preferential treatment is SHALLOW.
And also the way media portrays shit like that is so fucking terrible to whatever appearance they choose to portray a undesirable? And also to the person who happens to fall in love with said undesirable person? Like the whole beauty and the beast thing?
It’s like the whole old Flynn design Bastion from Rapunzel where he’s a reallllly big dude and it’s supposed to teach her how to look past the book cover or something and tumblr poops itself and is like WOW SHE IS SO MUCH LESS SHALLOW BECAUSE OF IT!!!!!
Isn’t that really fucking detrimental to big dudes? Like shouldn’t they have promoted it with her like finding him really attractive as well? Isn’t that like 10 times more positive. Shouldn’t you just have her meet him and expect her to have to LOOK PAST HIS COVER TO LOVE HIM but instead wow she just wants to hug a big teddy bear of a man and wow everyone feels good now.
Watching you liveblog your studying is like watching a slow descent into madness. I want to help, but at the same time I'm afriad that would only drive you deeper into your spiral of art history based rantings. I believe that the real Kirst is in there, somewhere, fighting to get out. One day she'll pop back up on skype like none of this ever happened. One day....
i thank thee for thy kind words, but am perhaps afraid that i may perish in a watery mannerist grave before your help reaches my faltering soul.
You “Homestuck”-ers are crazy… I don’t know how you guys got me to read this, curiosity, I guess… I’ll continue to read tonight (even though I don’t know what it is I’m reading yet) There are so many of you urging me to move on… and a handful of you telling me to stop.
Reading that weird webcomic last night, I was so confused and somehow felt like I was being sucked into the Matrix…
Anyhow… thanks for all the messages, I appreciate hearing from everyone, although as far as Homestuck goes, I half feel like you guys are setting me up for some big practical joke and after hours of reading this thing I’m going to click onto the next page and jack-in-the-box is going to pop out of the screen of my computer saying, “Got you!”
On another note, I cant believe I’ve been on this thing for like a week and now have over 4000 followers… This tumblr world is intense… Big thank you to jhenne-bean for convincing me to start one.
