I don’t like it when people bring up old friendships, and bug me about what happened. It’s like they start to assume its my fault so they can try to fix it. They think that I decided to leave these people. Yet they get surprised when they hear I actually tried really hard to keep in touch and stay friends with these people and its them who decided to leave.
But I don’t like being reminded of the fact that these really great people left me. It just makes me sad, and ruins my good day. Ugh.
"Because that’s the thing about Scooby-Doo: The bad guys in every episode aren’t monsters, they’re liars. Ask Chris #81: Scooby-Doo and Secular Humanism (via missshirley)
I can’t imagine how scandalized those critics who were relieved to have something that was mild enough to not excite their kids would’ve been if they’d stopped for a second and realized what was actually going on. The very first rule of Scooby-Doo, the single premise that sits at the heart of their adventures, is that the world is full of grown-ups who lie to kids, and that it’s up to those kids to figure out what those lies are and call them on it, even if there are other adults who believe those lies with every fiber of their being. And the way that you win isn’t through supernatural powers, or even through fighting. The way that you win is by doing the most dangerous thing that any person being lied to by someone in power can do: You think."
