  1. I'm not even sure some of these changes are "problems" and not more like "just an obvious place to maybe recast for a start," really?

    • @scribus the sentiment is nice and all but working from the societal equivalent of an F to a C- and calling it a day is not the big move they must think it is

    • @tiff Oh, and I totally get that. Like, a BW vid saying "I take responsibility" or whatever? Jegus... It's all been showboating and easy answers so far, it seems.

    • @scribus oh yeah that too, I was thinking about the industry at large but also individual people saying "I didn't know this racist thing I actively engaged in was racist" is something I don't often buy

  3. People keep telling me there’s actual logic behind The Simpsons’ production codes but I know they’re just as confused as I am. Only a maniac would label the first production season “7G”.

  4. I gotta say, blocking would-be constituents is a really great way to keep losing elections.

    • @mrmattimation The rep for Corona keeps blocking constituents on Twitter, I've heard it's unconstitutional

    • @scribus iirc the ruling was that government accounts (which includes Trump’s personal account, due to some records act that encompasses both his and Obama’s Twitter history) are public forums and therefore cannot block people, but PRIVATE political accounts are not. IE, the state party can block users because the party is not affiliated with the government, and “campaign accounts” (which most Reps tend to use instead of their office accounts) can do so as well.

    • @mrmattimation I see. I figure, screw twitter anyway. The internet needs a cleansing fire. One day, the impure will be destroyed. One day, the Users will return. # heh

  5. 800 pages left and I have finished reading all of the Inu Yasha manga. Roundabout 10300 pages for the whole thing.

    • @adiwan Thank god Tolkien didn't live to work in the medium. Then again, maybe "The Hobbit" would justify three movies...

    • @scribus The Hobbit is a short book but it compresses time a lot and a lot and things are not very well told because they come somewhat out of nowhere. 3 movies is a bit much, I can agree that 2 would be very fine.
      Reading Inu Yasha to the end was easier than Lord of the Rings. I HATE all those lengthy scenic descriptions in LOTR and my brain fades out too quickly to get past them. LOTR would work a lot better as a comic because those would be held to a brief instance and not minutes and multiple pages. To be frank: Inu Yasha has also big pacing issues. It could have been easily cut in half without losing too much of its substance. Towards the end it got DBZ-like when it comes to stretching the content and delay the inevitable.

  6. Cops were called on one of my employees today. He’s autistic, so he makes a lot of noises when he’s alone and somebody heard and thought he was arguing with someone. Cops showed up, immediately decided the black kid was the reason they were here instead of trying to ask questions. Fortunately we were able to explain the situation before it got out of hand but god damn that cherryes me off.

  14. New Pokémon Snap? I'm gladly waiting for all the reviews. Especially I'm waiting for all the reviewers and people bashing it for being too repetitive, short, and unoriginal. The N64 game can be played through within a few hours, and even then there was barely any varying gameplay beyond gushing over 3-dimensional Pokémon jumping around and abusing them with throwables. I expect the new one being similar in scope feature-wise. The right evolution of the game has to be at least a semi-open world with day-and-night cycles and a focus on stealth and exploration, like a real animal and nature photographer.

    • @adiwan The largest amount of gameplay time came from trying to find a Blockbuster with one of those proprietary printing booths. They should integrate it with Pokemon Go, lol. (Hey, I wonder if that Last Blockbuster Standing has one of the printers...?)

    • @scribus I saw a video about the last Blockbuster end of last year and I haven't noticed any Pokémon Snap photo printing stations.

  15. Especially since “digital animation” before the 2000s required very expensive custom IBM PCs - now studios just buy iMacs in bulk and put them on desks and it works fine. Every step of the process, from layout to colors to CGI to even editing and dubbing, can be done in people’s homes now.

  16. Keep thinking about how papayaed the animation industry would be if this Covid thing happened in the 80s or 90s or even in the early 2000s.

    • @mrmattimation I bet Disney would have been pitching the isolated campus model

      about 16 days ago in context
    • @scribus There is PRECEDENT for something like that, bits of I think The Lion King and Pocahontas were animated remotely after an earthquake temporarily shut down Disney’s Glendale campus, but there’s no way it would be able to be coordinated on a large scale long term basis pre-digital era. Al Jean said that he encouraged staff at the Simpsons’ relatively new in-house animation studio to work from home well before California’s stay-at-home orders and work wasn’t slowed in the slightest in spite of that. Could not have happened twenty years ago.

And I feel like the asshole for sitting here and watching them, after first shouting, then yelling, then cursing, then fuming, then apologizing, but I swear to god I have tried to grow something for years with setback after bullbanana failure and right now these goddamned gourds are about the only thing I have going for me in my life and I swear if anything happens to them I will jump in the pool wearing ankle weights
