    I believe history should be stripped from lower education curriculum.

    Here's why: history is a subjective practice strewn with contemporary biases taught as an objective narrative. The narrative will always shift, and surprisingly just the notion that this narrative changes to reveal modern day "truths" somehow does not delegitimise the practice. So, we rely on history to contain some meaning, to exhibit morality, and to transmit important values onto our next generations.

    I suggest a revision to the curriculum if history is to stay. Rather than teach it as a series of facts or a normative or revision to that normative, we should utilize it as a tool to understand the complexity of the human condition and promote critical thought. Teaching a child to think critically about their world is one of the most viable tools. If you can teach them to question their subjective interpretation of the world, then they can approach their own morals, values, and understanding of the narratives we inhabit and perpetuate.

    In the modern day nothing is so simple as right and wrong. Ask two people anywhere in the world what is going on and they will present you with their true understanding of it. Such holds the same in the past. There are no truths, just an assemblage of dead narratives malleable to the whims of our current socio-political milieu.

    warning this alleged information from a informal source on twitter:

    apparently they had to reshoot several scenes from the halloween episode 5x06 which is why it is being pushed back a week.

    (one of my twitter mutuals has a friend who works on set and this information came from them, but please keep in mind that this is to be taken with a grain of salt, this is not official information)

    i don't think have talked enough about the fact that the 118 are going to be on a case where a guy is going to buried alive????? like despite the chaos that is going to be the 5x06/5x07 switch, we are like almost definitely getting a buried alive parallel to eddie begins 3x15. like between the emotions running high from the hostage scene (that might or might not be in the riot episode, idk im suspicious about that being part of the episode next week) or even just buddie having to relive that through the victims trauma. like the parallels are about to be strong and i am ecstatic.

    don't get me wrong, i don't want to see the boys in pain but their story has been so much about them finding comfort in each other though their pain and being there for one another and i just can't help but think that this case is a little too perfect for a parallel considering that we are in a better place than ever for a buddie storyline to make sense.

    andponce again, there is no coincidences in film and cinema, every case in 911 is picked out for a reason (whether it be entertainment or in this case, parallels) so the writers know that this will be compared to eddie begins no matter what they say it means.

    #911 fox#911 theories#911 s5#911 5x06#911 5x07 #idk how to tag these episodes #im just tagging both to cover my ass bc i don't really know what's correct anymore #buddie#buddie theory#911 theory#buddie parallels #evan buck buckley #eddie diaz #911 on fox #buckley diaz family #buddie canon season 5

    I don't want to be the person to agree with the theory that W.D. Gaster could be the Knight in Deltarune. But I can't help but see some connection here....

    The smiling man you never see probably isn't Gaster and is probably just a new character for Deltarune.

    But the fact its an EGG that he gives you is

    Very

    Very

    Interesting.

    EGG in Wing Dings is a hand pointing Left, Up, Up. People who play Chess would perk up knowing that-

    That's how a Knight moves in a game of Chess.

    manga spoilers

    Returned to my thoughts about sacrificing the Dark Triad being part of the Ritual of Qliphoth, and how that might mean the fourth Zogratis might appear. 

    Like you take blood, body, and bone magic and feed it into the ritual in addition to gravity, space, and curses, so it’d make sense that some kind of soul and time magic might result. 

    We also know that Nacht said the real goal here besides saving Yami and Vangeance is to keep Luciferio from setting foot in the living world. Which is interesting because he was assigned to Dante, who would have to die if the sacrifice is part of the ritual itself. Which again makes me wonder if Satan isn’t actually the mythological figure that shouldn’t set foot in the living world, and is the devil associated with the fourth Zogratis. This post over here got me thinking about Dante’s Inferno where Satan is at the center of the earth. He also has three faces. Now in Inferno, Satan and Lucifer are the same entity, though sometimes they are separate creatures of similar backstory, much like how Crowley and Satan are different characters in Good Omens even though Satan is thought to be the snake in the Garden of Eden depending on who you ask. So really there are no hard and fast rules here regarding Satan, Lucifer, and other figures like Dis or Hel you might want to throw into the mix. 

    I mean Nacht did say Luciferio, and that indeed could be correct, but Nacht is also going on the information he was able to gather in the shadows of the Spade Kingdom, and I’m curious if the Dark Triad are truly intentional sacrifices of the ritual if the Dark Triad even knew they were sacrifices of the ritual because I don’t think they knew that. I mean if the oldest Zogratis’ goal was to be the devil standing at the end of the ritual, I could see how he could manipulate his siblings into taking on Luciferio, Megicula, and Beelzebub. He would just have to appeal to Dante’s ego. Of course Dante would want to be Luciferio, the one who’s the most feared. He’s wearing a crown. He loves the idea of that kind of power. The oldest brother would then appeal to Vanica’s need to have fun by causing carnage and chaos. Why wouldn’t she want a devil that could curse people? All the different type sof curses would be so interesting and keep things from getting stale. Then, we all know there’s a high chance that the oldest Zogratis sent the devil that caused Zenon to capitulate and finally request a devil. So clearly, there is something for the oldest brother to gain here. 

    It’ll be interesting to see how it unfolds. I would think that we’re going to move to Team Parole vs. Morris next since we’ve been ignoring them so far and now that the Dark Triad is likely all defeated, it’s time for Asta, Yuno, and Noelle to head to the laboratory next presumably at least. 

    Whether that’s what happens or not, I am excited to see what the next phase of the ritual might be, because I would think there has to be some sort of something that goes down once the Dark Triad (and maybe their devils too?) die.

    Who sings which part in Kaboom?

    Kaboom is the finale and an ensemble number, but so far it's only ever been performed by solo artists, which means we don't know how the song is divided up.

    I'm pretty sure it's set at Hunter S. Thompson's funeral, or sort of using the funeral to frame characters coming together across time and space. Why the funeral? Because Hunter S. Thompson had his ashes blasted into the sky with fireworks for his funeral- kaboom!

    Here's how I think the song is divided up based on what I know about the musical and characters so far:

    I never cared about caring much before
    I rolled my eyes and even texting was a chore
    I was your average heartless kid
    Then one day Mrs. Werring handed me a book and said
    "Here, read this book. The book is by some guy who's dead"
    I read it and I'm glad I did
    It was by a person who I never knew, but the words made sense and the message, too
    And it made me fired up and made me care
    And I wasn't scared, I was not alone
    Made me wanna make something of my own
    Something wired up that I could share
    And that person I would never see, just totally affected me
    Is that legacy?
    I assume
    Kaboom!

    I think this first part is sung by the mysterious "Kid". He's featured on the character/cast list fairly prominently and we know he has an important conversation with Hunter. Because that dialogue seems to happen between the kid and a deceased Hunter in the afterlife, it would make sense for the kid to be old enough to be growing up with texting and call Hunter "some guy who's dead" (assuming the book in question is Fear and Loathing). Furthermore, the Kid seems to embody what legacy means (based on the dialogue) so it would be very fitting for him to bring up legacy in Kaboom.

    I never cared about fireworks before
    I thought that they were just for babies, nothing more
    I was your average fucking kid
    But then I started giving things a second look
    And realized fireworks were kind of like that book
    And I'm really glad I did
    'Cause they're a thing that you hold in your hand
    And they're dangerous, but you understand
    If handled with intelligence and care
    The explosion and the crashing sound can be seen and felt for miles around
    It reaches folks who weren't even there
    Even though I didn't see the blast
    I watched glitter in the sky blow past
    And that's legacy
    The bloom
    Kaboom!

    I'm fairly sure this is sung by a different character and the reference to the book isn't the kid saying "fireworks are like the book I read" but rather another character going "fireworks are like that kid's book". But I could be wrong and the ensemble part of the song isn't happening until much later. If that's not the case tho, who could be singing here?

    My crack theory is Oscar Acosta. He was missing/presumed dead by the time Hunter's funeral happened, but I've really set my mind on the line "Even though I didn't see the blast, I watched glitter in the sky blow past" being sung by him. Either meaning "I was dead by the time the funeral happened but I still could see the impact from the afterlife" or, and this is my personal favourite crack theory, he was not dead but still in hiding and snuck to the funeral. He couldn't attend properly so he didn't see "the blast" but he could see the glitter of the fireworks from a distance. But I already did establish that this isn't literally set at his funeral (the Kid wouldn't be present there either) so ultimately it wouldn't really matter. I just like the theory. Also he's probably the most vulgar character so giving him the f-bomb in the song also works.

    I look around and think about the stage I'm on
    And whether anyone will notice when I'm gone
    What do I leave behind?
    Which is why we gotta make a spark
    Which makes a flame and then will leave its mark
    For someone else to find

    Here is where the song gets difficult for me. This almost sounds like a conversation between characters, but it could be a single person. I'm hoping the spark/flame motive will pop up in a different song so I could connect it to a character. The line "I think about this stage I'm on" is very meta, so it could even be one of the actors, perhaps Hunter's actor, stepping out of their role for it. But the part could also belong to the next part:

    And that person who lived dangerously
    Makes me braver than I used to be
    And I always squeeze my bloody heart
    And now I'm fired up in how I care
    And I let it drip into my art
    And, wow, I'm fired up
    I see a flare

    This part I'm sure is sung by Ralph Steadman, because the line "And I always squeeze my bloody heart and I let it drip into my art" is a callback to Steadman's Song.

    Since this is also where the song transitions it's hard to tell who sings all of it. It's possible not all of this is Steadman. I think especially the first 3 lines sound like they could be coming from someone else. If every character gets to sing in this song (which isn't sure) this part and the previous one could have character switches between almost every line. They do have enough of a disconnected feel to them that I can imagine it.

    And the light that shines on the distant shore
    Is the light I will be aiming for, forever
    So bright
    There's a great, green light
    Across the ocean
    And it's where I want to go
    There's a great, green light
    Across the ocean
    And I'm gonna reach it
    This I know
    There's a great, green light
    Across the ocean
    And it's where I want to go
    There's a great, green light
    Across the ocean
    And I'm gonna reach it
    This I know
    Oh, on with the wonderful show
    Kaboom!
    Kaboom!
    Kaboom!

    I think this is, at least partially, Hunter, and to a considerable amount ensemble. I already talked about the importance of The Great Gatsby to Hunter in the post from earlier and the green light is a pretty clear reference. Right now I can't imagine a character other than Hunter himself singing this.

    There are obviously still a ton of characters missing. I think the verses are probably more divided than I have them here. But without more callbacks like the one to Steadman's Song it's really difficult to assign lines. I assume with more songs and dialogue coming in, it will come together more over time. But I wanted to give a status update on where I currently stand with my theory.
