Complexities

 Back in early October I recorded a conversation with Orthodox Iconographer and Youtuber Johnathan Pageau. The conversation was interesting, though it started with a lot of what I think of as "the usual breezy stuff" (influences, story structure, the particular power of visual storytelling). But toward the back half the conversation began to shift into areas which are in a particular place of personal tension in my own life. So it got a little challenging, though the sparring was, I think, amiable.

And perhaps I even found myself set up for a second round. Who can say.

I'm a little disappointed that some of the parts about He-Man and Superman, and the values they represent,  and about fan fiction and cosplay, seem to have been edited out, but otherwise I think it's all intact.
