Hey everybody! Yes, I’m still alive. Yes, I’m still in a blogging slow-down due to work on two books at the same time. Keep checking in, though! I do have content coming, eventually.
Anyway, I have a point-counterpoint thing today. Point: A couple that has taken their adoration of the Victorian era to really high levels..
Counterpoint: Screw those idiots. (Second article is a tad foul-mouthed.)
I’m of mixed mind on this sort of thing. I honestly tend to default to “live and let live” on stuff like this, but on the other hand, I always have a hard time when people start evangelizing in favor of their time-period of choice, the point on the clock beyond which they think everything started trending downhill. There’s a fine line between admiring certain stylistic things about an earlier time, and fetishizing it to the point of cherry picking the stuff we liked.
But then, my mixed reaction to things like this might just be simply because my preferred time period is four hundred years in the future, so there’s that.
