Okay, I don't know if anyone else will be as amused by this as I was, but I have to share it. So every year (as of last year-ish) Gerard Way and Worm* do this charity livestream thing where they play board games and make art and take donations. Here is the promotional whatsit for this year's stream, coming up the second week in August.

ANYWAY, in the "fangirl mode on, must know all the things!" rabbit hole I fell into when I heard about this, I found a completely different stream with Worm and this dude Bill badgering Gerard into playing "Dead By Daylight." The game is EXTREMELY violent, they all swear a lot, and I recognize not everyone is into watching playthroughs like I am, but it's also pretty funny.



Just FYI, a solid twenty minutes collectively is them futzing with STEAM bc the game is in Beta and not loading all the way (and Gerard has trouble figuring out the controls), but about 9 minutes in is when they start playing the first time; and about 47 minutes in is when Gerard takes the role of the killer. AND THEN SHIT GETS REAL.

*If that name sounds familiar, it's because he used to be MCR's bodyguard/merch guy. I'm 75% sure I've met him at least twice.

OKAY ENOUGH. This is a wall-to-wall squee post. Because I want one. Apologies to anyone who follows me on Twitter and has heard/seen some of this stuff before. Not going terribly in-depth here. But yeah--squee post. I need it.

Let's Talk Season 7!


Exploding black goo. They had WAY too much fun with this one.


This is where the show became slightly less awesome. Meaning, the Big Bad is interesting in several ways, but just not terribly compelling? There’s some acidic social commentary that I really appreciate--like warning against the dangers of complacency, how letting one dude control all the things is a terrible idea, the risk involved in doing the right thing when the odds are stacked against you, how impossible it is to take care of yourself mentally and physically without a support system--all good stuff. Just got real tired of the Leviathans real quick. Look, I’m all for monsters that are organized, intelligent, and damn near impossible to kill. It’s just an entire season of said monster and I’m relating to the Winchesters’ exhaustion in dealing with this crap a little too well.

That said! There was some pure, undiluted fabulousness happening in Season 7, and I’m gonna squee about it.

I'm walkin on sunshiiiiine, whoooaaaa-ooohhh! )

This is JUST what I needed as the perfect after-work pick-me-up.
