If I sometimes invent an incident which I forget upon the next narration, they [the children] remind one directly that the story was different before; so that I now endeavour to relate with exactness the same anecdote in the same monotonous tone, which never changes. I find by this, how much an author injures his works by altering them, even though they be improved in a poetical point of view. The first impression is readily received. We are so constituted that we believe the most incredible things; and, once they are engraved upon the memory, woe to him who would endeavour to efface them.
And its seems ugly, but it can get worse 'Cause even a blueprint is a gift and a curse 'Cause once you got a theory of how the thing works Everybody wants the next thing to be just like the first And I'm not a robot, I'm not a monkey I will not dance, even if the beat's funky Opposite of lazy - far from a punk You all ought to stop talking Start trying to catch up, motherfucker!''
I miss the old Kanye, straight from the 'Go Kanye Chop up the soul Kanye, set on his goals Kanye I hate the new Kanye, the bad mood Kanye The always rude Kanye, spaz in the news Kanye I miss the sweet Kanye, chop up the beats Kanye I gotta say, at that time I'd like to meet Kanye See, I invented Kanye, it wasn't any Kanyes And now I look and look around and there's so many Kanyes I used to love Kanye, I used to love Kanye I even had the pink polo, I thought I was Kanye What if Kanye made a song about Kanye Called "I Miss The Old Kanye"? Man, that'd be so Kanye That's all it was Kanye, we still love Kanye And I love you like Kanye loves Kanye
I never understood why they changed the sound effect when the princess appears. It was "Deet-dinga-deet-ling!" then suddenly it was "dinga-deet-dinga-ling!" As if no one would notice! Pffft! True fans care about important stuff about that.
The need for geeks to have things be the way they always have been permeates their existence. It is not simply a desire to never see anything change, it's a point of view that simply refuses to acknowledge the existence of time altogether. A side effect of this is the way that geeks can take anything that's marginally amusing and run it into the ground until it's beyond unbearable. If something was ever funny to them, then it's always funny, and it always will be.
Jeffrey Dean Morgan: Wait! Dont kill me! I need to bleed onto my yellow smiley face button at an awkward angle so that the raging Watchmen fanbois in the audience are placated. (bleeds) Morgan: Okay, ready. Rapid Fanbois: Boo. The blood splatter is four degrees off.
The second issue of MAD goes on sale on December 9, 1952. On December 11, the first-ever letter complaining that Mad 'just isn't as funny and original like it used to be' arrives.
—Desmond Devlin, in a fictionalized history of Mad magazine
Your favourite character has been "promoted" and (they hope) forgotten; your second favourite character's role has been considerably reduced and his characterization changed; the people who look like you have either been made into a caricature or removed from the bridge altogether, and stuck in unattractive costumes as well (I know that's the division color. I'm sorry, but mustard is simply not a good color on black people). The weight of the show has been placed on an occasionally cute but minor character; the writers aren't doing anything with the two remaining characters, who get less interesting as time goes on - and there's a baby on the bridge where an adult should be. Given all that, might you not maybe possibly be just a little, tiny bit upset?
"[...I]t's almost certain that [Metallica] recognized that some, and probably even a lot of fans and critics would hate [Lulu], but I'm not sure they cared. And honestly, I'm not sure I blame anybody in Metallica for not caring. I mean, their entire career after 1983 (maybe earlier?) has been defined by fans complaining about every change they made away from what they were "supposed" to do. They complained when "Fade to Black" had elements of dark balladry. They complained when Master of Puppets became a surprisingly popular album. They complained when "One" had a music video. They complained when the band got bored and made a smash hit with Metallica. They complained when the band got its hair cut. They complained when the band decided to make its fondness of country explicit through "Mama Said" and the "Tuesday's Gone" cover. They complained when the band played with an orchestra. They complained when the band had the audacity to air its problems in film. And so on. Point is, if everything past, sheesh, the first 3-5% of your career involved large amounts of people complaining at you every time you defied their expectations and demands, wouldn't you eventually drown them out and not treat anything they said or thought as worth acknowledging?"
Amir: Facebook just jumped the shark! Okay, they had a perfect game going and they overdid it! Okay, trust me, I follow a lot of design Tumblrs, so I know when I see things that are overdone, and they overdid it. Jake: What's wrong with it? Amir: It's different. Which means it's bad. Which means I'm pissed.
Ultimately, canon for me, is like the foundation on which you build your understanding and investment in a fictional world. The more solid and stable it is, the more you can feel comfortable to lose yourself in a bit of much-needed escapism. But every time some asshole changes some aspect of the canon, it undermines that foundation just a little bit more, and so eventually, the whole thing collapses and you end up saying: "Fuck it, I just don't care about this anymore." That, my friend, is how hobbies die.
"After losing your girlfriend to a tragic accident, you decide to start dating her cousin. This cousin reminds you of your ex-girlfriend but, very quickly, you realize that she is not enough like your deceased ex for your liking, so you start pestering her to dress more like her dead cousin, talk more like her dead cousin, and generally behave a lot more like her dead cousin. When she resists, you get angry and begin harassing her incessantly, stalking her online and wishing her dead as well."
I have little respect for any of the people who produced this show, since this was originally an idea from Andrew Dickman. These guys took the rights from the poor guy, and made it look very much different than what he expected. Poor guy.
