  1. I feel like I'm one of the last ones reading/watching pony content.

  2. Watching "Way of the House Husband". Its animation is as minimal as it gets. It's more motion comic than usual animation. I guess they are fixed on recreating the manga panels. There are a ton of static images with pans and simple mouth animations. Sometimes there is a ton of shaking implying intense action but it looks odd when everything shakes but nothing moves. It's fine I guess but I had different expectations. Also an episode is divided into several smaller episodes that also recreate each manga chapter as closely as it can get. The pacing feels a tad off as the story starts and stops every 3 minutes.

    • @scribus I've never seen any movie he created (directed or produced). The closest would have been the Toxic Avenger cartoon. Maybe I've seen the first Toxic Avenger but I have seen so many clips of the movie my memory isn't sure about watching it at all. All assimilated by popculture osmosis.

    • @adiwan But Troma have managed to make feature films for a half-million dollar budget pretty reliably all the while, not inflation adjusted - $500,000 in 80s money for 80s movies, and still $500k in 2010s money for 2010s movies. And that has included some endearing jank, like a car flip/explosion they've used constantly since 1991 or so.

  3. As I am catching up with Bob's Burgers I noticed that I somehow skipped Season 5 when it aired.

  4. Planning to leave my job on May 1st. No idea what comes after that but I can’t work in this environment anymore. Probably gonna focus on YouTube for a bit while door dashing on the side so that I still have some money coming in

  6. I mean like look if you’re 19 and she’s 17 then neither of you really has your mango together, so who cares, right? But RageNineteen was 28 years old and dating a 16 year old who he’d met when she was 15 while dating her friend who was also 15, and that’s just supposedly normal in the YouTube world?? The hell’s going on????

  8. @scribus To answer the question I just got via email, the server is a basic digitalocean droplet. The $20 one. Depending on how much traffic you're expecting, you could easily run a couple of instances on there.

      • Binged through the whole series of "My Name Is Earl". I can somewhat understand why they pulled the cord and cancelled the series at the end of season 4. While fun it was kind of repetitive or insane and thus alienating any new watchers. Also it got increasingly serialized despite of its episodic nature at the beginning.

        • @adiwan Officially, the cancelation happened because of financial issues over at NBC from the then-recent recession. They had been given the go-ahead to start writing for a fifth season, which is why the fourth one ends on a cliffhanger.

        • @zeldatra Sure. I have also read that. But when I look at the viewership numbers they were decreasing rapidly towards the end. I don't know what happened in April of 2009 but they might have spooked some people in the upper management in addition to the financial crisis. They could have at least resolve the cliffhanger and do a somewhat proper ending to the series.

        • @adiwan TV Tropes mentions an official "What if" ending, per the creator. Earl struggles with completing an entry, and happens to meet someone from his past who had wronged him. The guy had heard about Earl, and was inspired to do his own list. Earl realized he's finally had a truly positive influence on the world, and goes on with his life. I like knowing that, even if they didn't get to film it.

      • Anyway, I was digging through my older cartoons to pull out assets for a newer one, and oh man, teenage Matt organized projects like a troglodyte. Until 2016, every single one of my flash files existed in a single-level folder labeled “Flash”. Zero organization. There was a separate folder called “Audio” which itself was properly organized for some reason.

        • Need to change the hoses of my bicycle tires. I had to pump them up twice in a row within 15 minutes. Either it is the air valve or the hose itself.

          • I just bought an AC for my apartment. Sadly it's only a single-hose type of AC. Here there are none for hanging into the window or ACs with two hoses. Now I'm planning to create some plate to mount into my window with the hose to exhaust the warm air.

            • So you know how they've got those nigh-pornographic art models with the poseable skeletons and all that jazz? Do they make them in non-human? Looking for a mouse or a rat... uh, also non-lewd. I don't need a sexy mouse. Not yet....

              • @adiwan I dunno, lol. This is really probably just Perfectionism stepping on Productivity's toes. Mostly I just was looking for a reliable way to check if something I would write would be physically plausible. But I've already taken pages of notes on "The Secret of NIMH" and other cartoons and actual live animal footage, so I probably don't *need* anything at all.

              • @scribus I think it's cheaper to buy a real mouse and not bother trying to replicate the skeleton in order to see if a pose is even possible. Yeah... It'd bite back but still cheaper time-wise and financially. I don't think pet shops allow anybody willy-nilly to grab a mouse and contort it.

            • Buying a new car, even a cheaper new car, is still a huge thing to put money into. That huge purchase makes all the little things look insignificant. "4€ for a bread, it's nothing, doesn't cost as much a car."

            • AAaand I have a new car. I was driving it though a mountainous region and was immediately stumped. I was used to a Diesel with twice the horse power and the new car is a normal petrol (benzyl) car with a 6 gear transmission instead of the 5 I'm used to. Driving in the mountains was a minor ordeal with my lack of knowledge of the machine. It took a good amount of time to accelerate from the 5th gear up a hill.
