    What were the cons?

    Edit: I guess they would have been in Crime and Punishment

    I mean it's a flying dinosaur, did you expect compassion? humility? somewhere deep in their cerebral cortex lives an ancestral memory of a time when they were lords of the earth and wouldn't even think twice about taking all these primates to the goddamn cleaners

    There is this thing with the English whereby looking like you're making even a slight effort to correctly pronounce a foreign loan word or food item is considered extremely pretentious to the point where you would be roundly and severely mocked.

    Like if you're saying taught - iller for tortilla then you'll probably also be mocked, but if you start rolling the r and emphasising the second syllable you might find yourself having to sit on your own.

    Having said all this I can't actually work out how else you can say "taco"

    edit. is it just the length of time taken to say it?

    I very much love the idea of a dude and his cockatoo that both hate eachother and are hoping the other one dies soon but they just keep hanging on out of spite and honestly the routine of it.

    Either would be devastated if one actually did die.

    oh shit, you're right! The A in taco is a "Broad" a.

    But the a Paul Hollywood uses in taco is a short a, like in apple.

    It is from a Jackbox game called Tee-KO. It's a party game where you write phrases and draw pictures, then combine phrases and pictures from different people to make t-shirt designs.

    Then you can buy the t-shirts!

    Seems like a reasonable tradeoff for the whole Empire thing, y'ask me.

    Anyway, I would never bust anybody's balls to their face, that's petty, but it is the speaking equivalent of nails on a chalkboard to listen to.

    Is this another one of those things that is immediately halted by court action? Because that's a mood too.

    Oh, you think darkness is your ally. But you merely adopted the dark; I was born in it, moulded by it. I didn't see the light until I was already a man, by then it was nothing to me but BLINDING! The shadows betray you, because they belong to me!

    Frasurbane, titled from the 1990s TV show 'Frasier', is a style that draws from more wild postmodern design movements like Grunge graphic design (eg. David Carson), Memphis Milano & Deconstructivism, but filters them through the lens of a more conservative and aging Baby Boomer population that was settling down, becoming more wealthy and suburban. Serif fonts abound, accentuated with underlining, italicization, and various weights. These are usually coupled with warm sepia or black-and-white images of 'timeless'/classical representations of basic concepts (sometimes in a surrealist manner), often in soft-focus and featuring heavily-staged product photography. Astrolabes, globes, 'Vitruvian Man' style diagrams, textured paper, Neo-traditional (Neoclassical, Biedermeier, etc.) architecture, relatively 'realistic' drawn representations of various traditional objects, plants, and animals (think Victorian-era scientific illustrations). My understanding is that as postmodernism emerged in the 1970s-80s, it started off as brash, 'Memphis' loud, and morphed into a more traditional, classical, and conservative version of itself as it's progenitors aged and the style became subsumed into popular culture and accepted as a capitalistic upper-class signifier. With the economic recession of the early 1990s, this understated form became even more popular, compatible with both the zeitgeist of an aging population (nostalgic photographic treatments, attempts to appear timeless by including 'classic' versions of objects rather than their then-current 1990s iterations) and the surface environmentalism of the era (earthy warm tones, 'eco-friendly' packaging, naturalistic accents like twine, twigs, wooden crates packed with straw, leaves).
