I don’t think Florida’s even a real place anymore.
44 in Atlanta. So close, but still can’t squeeze in on Florida’s warmth.
I was putting off homework and flipping through some One Piece when I found this quote. Oda’s one of my favorite modern artists of any medium for a lot of reasons, but I think this quote sums up my admiration for him perfectly. Think about it! When this was written, One Piece was only 4 years old, and 12 years later it’s still going strong because he’s committed to his story and his characters and his readers. I cried when I found this and I’m cryin’ now because I’m tr a sh
A movie is made by hundreds of people working on thousands of scenes, projects will almost always have occasional issues keeping the most recent and up to date versions of a scene straight. And when scenes move from one executive branch to another it’s entirely possible for wires to get crossed and things to get shuffled. Especially on projects where things are being revised right down to the wire, where a scene might be sent back for urgent, last-minute retakes multiple times in one day.
This is entertainment being made by humans, subject to human error. If you’re scrutinizing every movie frame by frame these errors pop up all over the place, Disney, live action, everything. There’s a scene in the Little Mermaid where a ship in Ursula’s whirlpool disappears a couple frames before the end of the scene, there’s a scene in the Bonjour song in Beauty and the Beast where a woman walking in the background loops or something and pops back to her original position before the scene is over, in the recent Bluray release of Little mermaid there were two scenes in Part of Your World that got flopped with each other, you’ll see bad scene hookups all the time in animation and live action where the scene cuts to a different angle on the character and they’re standing in a totally different pose or making a different expression, things like cigarettes or candles might be different lengths as a scene jumps around because the continuity guy lost track of something, all sorts of things can get lost in communication. They’re issues that, in isolation when viewed ad infinitum in a looping gif, might seem egregious, but in reality are very difficult to notice in the actual film unless you know to look for them and are understandable things to slip through the cracks in the expansive hierarchy of hands a scene passes through before it shows up on screen.
weightlesslives:This might be the most accurate thing I’ve read everPosting on Tumblr is like talking to your cat. You don’t know if they are listening, and you don’t know if they care, but for some reason, it still helps.
And sometimes they attack you completely unprovoked.
I think mine’s stuck on ignore.
What if Millennials’ aversion to car-buying isn’t a temporary side effect of the recession, but part of a permanent generational shift in tastes and spending habits? It’s a question that applies not only to cars, but to several other traditional categories of big spending—most notably, housing. And its answer has large implications for the future shape of the economy—and for the speed of recovery.

It’s safe to say that a decent number of Tumblr users are a part of the Millennial generation. So, tell us: Do you own a car or house? If not, why?
IT’S BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO DISPOSABLE INCOME YOU THUNDERING IDIOTS. Fucking preference has nothing to do with it. 50% of college graduates have no job! They all have the most student loan debt ever! What are you asking this question for?!
Also: housing is a good bit more expensive now.
My parents got a 15-year mortgage on a new house in the mid-70s. The house was $32,000. Average home price in that area now? $190,000.
So, home prices went up. Food prices went up. Health care prices went WAY UP. Rent prices went up. Higher education went up so damn high that some of us forgo that all together. Energy prices went up. Car prices went up.
Prices of prices went up.
We also pay cell phone bills, internet bills, data plans, text plans, online subscriptions, cable/satellite tv, netflix, DVR subscriptions — bills that didn’t even exist 30-40 years ago. We also use computers and smartphones and microwaves and other consumer electronics that didn’t exist 20-50 years ago.
We need medications and doctors and contact lenses and tampons and maxi pads and other things that cost money just to be alive and keep us healthy.
Most of us can’t afford to:
- Get married and have a “Traditional” big wedding
- Buy a house
- Buy a new car
- PLAN to have children
- Take two, consecutive weeks of vacation.
Jobs that paid 50k in the late 1990s now pay between 30-35. Interest rates that favor consumers have gone down.
So I say, no. We are not choosing not to buy homes. We’re not choosing to take the bus in cities where there’s no good public transit. WE ARE NOT CHOOSING TO LIVE WHAT SOCIETY DEEMS AS AN UNDESIRABLE LIFESTYLE.
Don’t even get me started on the fact that these two people in the picture are young white hipsters. Young black and brown folks have been forgoing homeownership and buying new cars for decades, this shit isn’t new, pal. You’re just acting like this shit is new because it’s hitting white folks.
anyway, my point is: We are fucking broke.
read the commentary above ^^
"Hey. Hey, guys. I know the economy being fucked up is totally our fault, but what if we tell people the next generation…wants to be poor?”
Oh look I’m reblogging this again.
I fucking hate game night with the engineering graduates
Ah, what could have been. The story of a destructive, vicious beast capable of mass destruction, and her Metroid.
Ninetales, The Majestic Fox Pokémon
Why does this look a lot like Ninetails from Okami
Ninetales From Pokémon: 1996
Ninetails From Okami: 2006
So the real question is, why does Ninetails from Okami look a lot like Ninetales from Pokémon.
The answer is: Because they’re based on the same fucking legend.
And finally, centaur Irene. I… don’t think I have much to say about this ‘un. So, on to the next type of monster girl, I guess!
I’m also including the original sketch in this post, since a couple people said they liked it.
In the end, I figured I’d do all the girls once before I repeat any of them. So here’s centaur Khristie, and centaur Irene is already scanned and ready to get polished up.
I think I forgot how to shade when doing this, and I’m not satisfied with how a lot of the lineart turned out. Ever feel like you’ve forgotten how to draw your characters?
I’m not sure if Khristie would prefer being a centaur or not. On the one hand, fewer people are terrified of horses and she’d have fewer legs to deal with, but on the other, she still has a butt the size of a couch that others can sit on and she can’t do much about.
Also, once I finished this, I realized I should’ve put ribbons in Raiko and Jya’s tails. >.<
