See You Space Cowboy…

Spike Spiegel
Writing about something I feel strongly about is a real bitch. I’ve been at this post forever, and I have revised the shit out of it. The general idea was to tell the reader how great Cowboy Bebop is, how deep, thought-provoking and beautiful. But it seemed too simple to just write that. Which is why I’m staring at 25+ revisions and am still at a loss as to how to make you understand. Chances are, you already know Bebop is awesome. That makes my life even more difficult. If I don’t write a decent post you’ll think I’m a loser who doesn’t know how to appreciate a masterpiece like Bebop.

I’ve gone through a gazillion screenshots and wallpapers in an attempt to give this piece-of-shit post some visual support, and still, nothing seems to be good enough to demonstrate my appreciation. I’ve made all of these filmstrips and then I realized there’s no Julia in them. I mean, what the fuck? How can I visually present Bebop without Julia? How on Earth was I even thinking to show you the depth and intricacy of the story without mentioning her? Stupid.

Fact is, I’ve tried to write this particular post before and I have never managed to write something decent about Bebop. I’m useless. I can rant on about shit I don’t like, but giving credit where it’s due is apparently not my thing. Am I really one of THOSE people? Brrrrrrrrr.

I am kind of throwing in the towel here, counting on the possibility that if I write that Bebop is more than the sum of its parts and only when the last scene fades to black you will be able to appreciate its magnitude will make amends for my appalling inaptitude in writing an appreciation post.

Check this, I’ve even made a nice little playlist on soundcloud because I thought I’d be able to write about great music and the importance it has in the experience of watching and rewatching Bebop. How supercilious of me.
