    Huh, Amory Score does not like the mid-section of Second Stage Turbine Blade, but that stretch from Delirium Trigger through Neverender is what I consider the strong part of the album.

    It's also the most detached from the story so maybe that's part of it.

    Yeah I was surprised at their ratings on that stretch but it makes sense when you realize they’re there for the solid pop jams and not so much the noodly unstructured prog stuff.

    Plus, starting with the next album they get better at even giving the prog stuff some structure.

    Hot take: naming kids after fictional characters is fine. "Khaleesi" is a pretty name, even if it's actually a title.

    All names are pretty fuckin' stupid when you think about it. I mean I'm named "Adam" for Christ's sake.

    For the most part that's true, but ...unique... names can create baggage for a kid and that's something parents should really take into consideration and sometimes don't.

    Lord knows kids found enough excuses to pick on me as it was, I can't imagine how miserable I'd've been if I'd had some obvious pop culture reference name.

    I think that’s dying out to a degree. Not bullying, that will always be around, but more and more kids seem to have unique names these days and that makes it far less noteworthy. At least in my area.

    whitebread biblical names are the most boring shit and I kinda bristle a little whenever people get mocked for naming their kids Sephiroth or Thor Pudlik.

    they still have a cooler name than you.

    I will absolutely name all of my children with ridiculous classical mythology names (or maybe Shakespeare bullshit), so I really can't pass any judgments

    You lucked out because you could do that stealth-mode without any societal baggage. Wario fans can't pull that off so easily

    Also the difference between giving a kid a name they could seemingly be made fun of for and picking your own name is very different

    I very strongly disagree about anyone being named Sephiroth being cool.

    Also there are societal advantages to having a so-called "boring" name that you are essentially denying your kid in order to be "cool". It's not a pet it's a human being that has to live with the dumb stuff you saddle them with. Look at all the children of hippies who are bitter about being called Waterfall or whatever. A lot of people don't want that baggage.

    The key thing I think of when I'm thinking about using unusual names is, "What do I call them?"

    Like, my name is Gregory. Nobody calls me that, and nobody ever really has. Now this is partially because I dislike it, but it's also because my parents always called me Greg. It's an easy name to shorten, and it has an established shortening method, so it just happens all the time.

    Now if you're looking at some more unusual names, you gotta figure out what those short names are gonna be there. Take, for instance, a name I had considered using for a child previously, Reynard. That shortens down to Rey, which is a homophone of Ray, an established name. That makes it nice and easy. But if you were to look at like, Odysseus (another name I have previously considered, let's be real), what do you do for that? Odd? That seems like a kind of cruel name to give a child, to begin with, and will definitely stick out in an environment with a number of other "normal" names.

    Yeah if it's a "technically it's this on the birth certificate but everyone just calls them ___" it's usually fine. If your kid's name is Samus but everyone calls them Sam, I will probably want to give you a noogie but otherwise it's fine.
