Interlude: Good Man

Courtesy of Twitter, and a good conversation I had recently with my boy Aaron. I haven’t had much to put on the blog lately but this seemed to fit the bill. I’ll return to normal production as soon as possible.

About Hatboy

I’m not often driven to introspection or reflection, but the question does come up sometimes. The big question. So big, there’s just no containing it within the puny boundaries of a single set of punctuationary bookends. Who are these mysterious and unsung heroes of obscurity and shadow? What is their origin story? Do they have a prequel trilogy? What are their secret identities? What are their public identities, for that matter? What are their powers? Their abilities? Their haunted pasts and troubled futures? Their modus operandi? Where do they live anyway, and when? What do they do for a living? Do they really have these fantastical adventures, or is it a dazzlingly intellectual and overwrought metaphor? Or is it perhaps a smug and post-modern sort of metaphor? Is it a plain stupid metaphor, hedged around with thick wads of plausible deniability, a soap bubble of illusory plot dependent upon readers who don’t dare question it for fear of looking foolish? A flight of fancy, having dozed off in front of the television during an episode of something suitably spaceship-oriented? Do they have a quest, a handler, a mission statement, a department-level development objective in five stages? I am Hatboy.

    Porn has taught me that people’s genitalia IS my business, though. Very occasionally, of course, not like 3 times a week or anything like that. Gosh that’s specific. Um.

  2. I so desperately want them to cast him now as Ellie in The Last of Us even more. Just so that every single little prat who’s been going on about how great he’d be in the part would have to start contorting in mental gymnastics over why he’s no longer fit for it. (And to be clear, I think Elliot would kill in the role.)
