noun leit·mo·tif \ˈlīt-mō-ˌtēf\
1: an associated melodic phrase or figure that accompanies the reappearance of an idea, person, or situation especially in a Wagnerian music drama
2: a dominant recurring theme
did you know:
- the English word leitmotif (or leitmotiv, as it is also spelled) comes from the German Leitmotiv, meaning "leading motive" and formed from leiten ("to lead") and Motiv (motive)
- now also used more broadly to refer to any recurring theme in the arts or in everyday life
The utter most leitmotif looming underneath THE POSITIVES comes with a few special treats. One of them being time travel.
The previous comix was drawn 5 minutes ago. But we referred to it for the first time two years ago. Let us rephrase that for tha slower among us: two years ago we cited a work that only came to existence in tha last 5 minutes. So that’s either some fuckin’ amazin’ foresight of us, or we have the capacity to go back and forth in time: u pick. And that’s not even tha longest premonition on set: presenting u with tha still-goin’-“told-ya-so” HOLY GRAIL of P+ memorabilia that cuts to tha core of our leitmotif -
This scrap of paper is now 17 years old.
I was out with megababe. We talked. She told me I was wrong. I told her I’d be right. I told her she would forget our talk. She said she wouldn’t. I asked her to write it down: I’d prove her wrong.
She has forgotten. I cannot: the utter most leitmotif looming underneath THE POSITIVES also comes with a price - one I will have to pay one day.
Still, either I got that fuckin’ amazin’ foresight, or I’ve been doin’ a shitload of time travel back and forth. If you were to ask megababe, she’d tell ya I master tha dark arts of time travel - for she cannot concede I am right. always
pt2: dig deeper
Someone said “Wagnerian music drama”?
Shiiiit, enter tha "Gesamtkunstwerk":

- in the twentieth century, some writers applied the term to some forms of architecture, while others have applied it to film and mass media
- aaaand we’re back.
OS POSITIVOS: humor & depressão down to an art.
