The big conversation now isn't that Henry Cavill left The Witcher and was replaced by Liam Hemsworth - now we're into the whisper phase, where we attempt to divine why Cavill might have left. As someone who shares a hobby with him, I think it's quite straightforward. We don't need to get into some crazy shit to figure it out, but that won't stop this accursed web. First, it's not like he did no seasons. He did three seasons. That's a lot! Second, let's be very clear: The man is into Warhammer. Even favoring a low model count army like Adeptus Custodes as he does, he can't be Geralt and Superman and play with his cool dolls. Something's got to give.
I had seen a picture that had them side by side, Liam and Henry, and I was like… Oh, okay, I can see it. I heard second-hand that Kara was… unhappy with the choice, near furious, Brenna said that Liam is the "Wish version Of Geralt," and Ronia just scrunched up her face as though even a picture of the man had a stench that could somehow exhale from the screen. Their responses were visceral. Ronia doesn't even watch the fucking show and the simple fact of the man's existence was beyond her endurance. I thought he was just, like, a dude, but apparently he's some kind of revolting goblin.
Apparently people are being suspended from Twitter because they changed their names to Elon Musk, and there's some kind of thing with checkmarks - you can buy them apparently, but only so long as you don't change your name? Or something? I'm given to understand that this is all very amusing and ironic, and wry, and low-key revolutionary, because we're so above it all. You aren't above shit. You're up to your fucking neck in it. This is the circus portion of Bread and Circus, and I think our masters have been delighted to learn that only circuses are required. They never could have imagined that we'd run the circus for them, too.
