30 Days of Shiina Ringo
Day 03 – First Shiina Ringo song you ever heard
能動的三分間 Noudouteki Sanpunkan
I first heard this song from a Strange Journey MAD and was so blown back by the English I missed the memo that they were a Japanese band. I didn’t look into them for a while, but eventually I did and I don’t regret it one bit.

perfect commentary which parallels what Rawles was saying earlier about the possibility of Moriarty being a person of color:
You see? It’s more complicated than “people of color get typecast as villains.”
Black people get typecast as an extremely specific type of villain - they’re thugs, brutish and animalistic. South Asian actors are similarly typecast as scary oppressive (usually coded Muslim) terrorists.
But when your villain is of the superhuman archetype? When they’re brooding antiheroes, when they’re nuanced, when they’re multi-faceted?
