Even reading this is meaningless.

Van's journey throughout the whole series was interesting, she just wanted to have fun but ended up disappointed. That's been happening to her for quite some time - in Value, when she went to dinner with her friend, she ended up having to talk about Earn and then had fun but ultimately ended up being fired the following day for events she enjoyed previously. In Helen, she weny there to have fun, hopefully with Earn, and she did but ended up having to play ping-pong for her relationship against a guy who wasn't even pretending to put in an effort. In Champagne Papi, she was with her friends about to have fun but she got stuck having to babysit one of them, and then she lost her and had to worry then try to find her. She met a guy who seemed to be nice but started to seem kinda creepy and desperate. She went into Drake's closet, talked to his grandfather seemingly forgetting how the night didn't go as planned, but then she went outside and saw Darius - an Earn reminder and an Earn witness to her failed attempt at stuntin' (even though Darius is above that). Even in The Jacket, she was having a really ideal happy family night but then Earn left at the end.
She just can't catch a break. She is clearly trying but the puzzle is made of a million pieces and non of them fit together. Her character seems strong and unbothered, she keeps trying nonetheless. Stressed out by the drug test at school, she still got up to care for Lottie. Lost her job, still pushing for opportunities at that Juneteenth party. She's a symbol for strength and perseverance. I hope she finds what she's hoping for, in herself, in Earn, in the world.

How do you continue on normally when you've lived, and believed, someone's life for 55 years? You become a high school football star, fall in love and marry your high school sweetheart, start a family, and beat cancer. Only to wake up to your granddad saying it was all fake, your actually life was that one dream weird dream you had as a child, before puberty.
After all that, you go on these adventures where your perception of reality is continuosly fucked with. How do you trust you're really in your reality? Morty just keeps getting up and moving forward.
Morty would make a fucked up 21 year old. When he's older Rick probably won't even be there to, at least, be a constant in all this madness.
In the second episode of Season 2, Jerry says "This is the 8th to the last straw", 8 episodes past (to the first episode of Season 3) and he decides to make Beth choose between him and Rick.
Jerry possibly riches his last straw when, in season 2 finale, Rick makes them fugitives. As usual, it didn't matter because he ended up back with Beth, with Rick still in the house. The meaningless nature of the Universe is evident in all the characters on the Show.
They give an impression of a lot going on without us knowing, we never really saw what it was like when Earn stayed with Al and Darius. We get to fill those gaps with our imagination, and it makes it easier for throwback episodes like Fubu (and I suspect 'Babershop' as well). The characters age as we age, grow as we grow, and develop simultaneously in front of us and behind the scenes. What makes it an experience (and not just a show) is the fact that we can fill in those time gaps with our own perception of the show and its characters.
That's why there's not much of a rush when when it's off-season, there's no need for the continuity of 'Who killed who', we'll just guess and wait. I think we might not see the Euro tour, just the outcome of the events at the airport.
Stephen Glover likes the absurd, embraces it. Donald Glover makes tragedy look casual, like it's the norm, so not to panic at its presence. Stefani Robinson narrates human nature objectively. Simultaneously embracing the absurd and making tragedy the norm.
Juneteenth, Value, Barbershop, and Woods are my favourite episodes. They work well at surface level as funny with the added meta Atlanta experience, and they do a great job of expressing human nature from a black narrative. I might be reading too much into this. They even have significant moments if revelation for the character involved - Alfred's internal conflicts on Woods, Van out with her friend without relating to Earn's narrative, revealing how she views herself in the relationship on Value, Van and Earn's relationship with each other and the outside world on Juneteenth, and Alfred's fear of change on Barbershop.
Might be Tara being with Al or something.
He's seen so much shit, the basicness of C-137 doesn't bother him. He literally has bigger to fish to 'fry' in Atlantis.
Morty is all of us, we want to believe our somewhat nihilist thoughts are similar to Rick, but they are similar to Morty. We've spent so much time with Rick, we start to think like him bit become him. In this essay...
I can't tell the difference between him being sober, drunk, or high. When he met Teddy Perkins, at the party with Van, when he's just chilling with Alfred - still the same Darius, just different variations of high. I might be wrong, fix me.
Rick might just have a long monologue about it, maybe Morty might be rage in from his "filter of your comfort monologue"
Do you think that was him you using art to objectively critique his inner thoughts? Perhaps the whole party represented the majority of his fans. Are we just Gregs and pretend Earns and Vans. Maybe I'm reaching.
