I’ll be there for you

I catch myself measuring time in Friends reruns sometimes… Other times it’s measured in Spongebob or Adventure Time episodes… Before school started back up, it was measured in Borderlands 2 missions.

64 episodes of Adventure Time until class tomorrow (roughly 16 Borderlands 2 missions)… Studying American dialects can totally wait.

Sooo… today’s shirt on TeeFury is a zombie doughnut shirt. Not that I’m complaining or anything, but I think I might be missing something. Maybe not… but zombie doughnuts? What’s the deal?
Oh… and there’s this:

Granted, I’m pretty sure that I saw the zombie doughnut idea on Facebook from Sumrow before I saw the 2 zombie episodes of Adventure Time … but still, these two images are eerily similar, no? What the hey, hey? What’s with undead sweet treats? And why can I not shut up about this (awesome) children’s show??

MATHEMATICAL!

SO, with some help from this video, I have figured out why I love Adventure Time so so so so sos sso osososososo os SOO soOSOSo SO much:

Yes, I do believe I love it so much because of the ambivalence it evokes… but I also believe it’s the crazy interest that I have in post-apocalyptic scenarios, like that of Fallout 3 and zombie movies (and my new love, Doomsday Preppers).

But then again… maybe I love reading/hearing about/watching post-apocalyptic media because of the nostalgia. It’s a vicious cycle. It’s like a POND or something! (tiny Spongebob reference)

So, I love Adventure Time because it’s nostalgic and it’s nostalgic because it’s post-apocalyptic, and I love post-apocalyptic scenarios because it’s nostalgic, and it’s also nostalgic because it’s post-apocalyptic, so nostalgia aids post-apocalyptic scenarios in the media today by making the viewer/reader feel ambivalent, meaning that they are both happy and sad at the same time.

That sentence is so long, William Faulkner could have written it. Phew.

BONUS POINTS:

Here’s a list of some awesome guest voices on Adventure Time: Donald Glover, Neil Patrick Harris, Andy Samberg, Weird Al, Andy Milonakis, Ron Perlman, Erik Estrada, George Takei, Matthew Broderick, Lou Ferrigno, and Keith David.

I was watching my boyfriend beat Gears of War 3, (right… Watching him… because to be honest, I’m not a giant fan of the series) and I noticed this little gem.
Maybe it’s just a coincidence that John Di Maggio voices both Marcus Fenix and Jake the Dog, but regardless, the fact that SOMEONE from the game made an Adventure Time reference was totally math. (If you’re not picking up on it, it’s the one on the left that says “Hi, cool guy! May I take that for you, sir?”)
