  1. I ALSO think it's implausible that UNIT would have photos of the First Doctor's companions since afaik UNIT doesn't show up until the 70s?

  2. ok so i'm rewatching some DW episodes from the David Tennant and Matt Smith eras to see if the show actually has gotten worse or if my idea of "good" has just changed since I was 16, and there's a scene in The Day of the Doctor, series 7, where Clara is taken to the Black Archive - a UNIT base - and there's a corkboard with photographs of the Doctor's past companions (including two separate pictures of Clara for some reason) that UNIT had taken in secret. River Song is on the board and I honestly think it's implausible that they would have been able to get ahold of her.

  3. Just found a Doctor Who continuity error, last time I watched he was played by Peter Capaldi but I watched an episode today and they seem to have forgotten this because for some reason a totally different actor was in the role, very embarrassing for whoever made that mistake

  4. Can somebody please point out to the Republicans saying Trump’s actions implicitly disqualify him with voters from winning another election that they said the exact same thing about his “grab her by the Potato Knishesy” comments in 2016

  6. The only thing stopping me from doing a George Lucas re-release to keep that comic up to date is that I don’t know how to draw Joe Biden, I’ve tried so hard and I just can’t do it

  9. That only makes getting called the n-word in Call of Duty: Warzone even funnier, because by all accounts those other players should be playing WAY better than me.

  10. @scribus True story: I grew up pretty much entirely on PlayStation 2 and Xbox 360, so when I finally got a PC that could properly handle video games I was immediately put off by the keyboard controls and plugged in an Xbox One controller instead. To this day it's really hard for me to play shooters the "real" way.

  11. http://rainbowdash.net/url/875786 First four seconds were animated a whiiiiile ago. Then I took a hiatus, made a video about Skyrim and another one about a very talented pedophile, and finally a couple of days ago picked this cartoon back up. Animated the last thirteen seconds of this clip today and yesterday.

  13. So this guy watched my video about how we can separate the art from the artist... and saw it as a symptom of cancel culture? LMAO http://rainbowdash.net/url/875785

  14. Accidentally making straight people a minority in your cartoon universe because the only straights around got sucked into a different cartoon universe and it’s been too long now to resolve the situation

  17. finally made it to Peter Capaldi's last season on Doctor Who and I have to put on subtitles to understand the new companion through her accent, which i personally think is absurd considering I grew up on an English cartoon

  19. In spite of that I'm generally pretty happy with all of the scripts I have so far, especially the probable first set that'll get produced, which covers:
    -Modern living and working in the increasingly diverse and yet increasingly gentrified and expensive suburbs of America
    -People coming from an abusive background who then inadvertently perpetuate that cycle of abuse
    -Coping with the death of someone who you didn't particularly like during their life
    -The Me Too movement, and, separately, the asymmetrical way that male survivors of sexual abuse are treated even by some supporters of that movement
    -Trans-exclusionary radical feminism
    -The role of religion in a community
    -The internal and external struggles of religious men who are also gay (I do the voice of both halves of the gay couple, so I will once again be forced to Potato Knishes myself for the sake of art)

    And because I still like fun, a western, a ghost story, a zombie toon, and a Doctor Who parody involving Nazis and a musical number.

  20. Still torn on whether to re-write this pilot to tie it more in with the COVID-19 pandemic or if I should just ignore it altogether. It's a series about three working-class individuals in 2020s America (Northern Virginia/Washington DC specifically) and I feel like it's disingenuous to write about that while completely ignoring one of the biggest challenges we as a nation have faced in the modern age, doubly so since the setting is a grocery store. On the other hand, animating everyone wearing masks and standing six feet apart? Kinda lame (not to mention impractical with a 16:9 aspect ratio). And I don't want the show tied down by the necessarily activity-restricting nature of the pandemic.

  21. There’s like, this guy, and he gets shot in the face, and it’s pretty epic, kinda like that other cartoon I made where the guy gets shot in the face, except the camera briefly shows the exit wound in the back of his had, because I don’t make pony cartoons anymore, nah, I make action films now

  28. The current global situation of course came at a pretty “good” time for animation. Had this happened in the 90s everyone would have been screwed, in 1993 an earthquake shut down studio production on The Lion King for a few weeks and people had to work from home and it was a huge deal.

  29. (An article describing Pokemon's current production process, including their efforts to preserve the "hand drawn" look: http://rainbowdash.net/url/875780)

    ((Technically, Pokemon's been using digital ink-and-paint since their 11th season in 2007/2008, but that's beside the point))

  30. Animation DRAWINGS are even more numerous because even after going digital, a lot of animators still worked on paper for layout and drawing the key poses and such. The Simpsons didn't go paperless until The Simpsons Movie in 2007. Family Guy took even longer, with the 2009 special "Something, Something, Something Darkside" being the last episode to be animated on paper - they switched to ToonBoom starting with the next production season since the studio was also working on The Cleveland Show, which was paperless from the start (American Dad, also animated by the same studio, switched around the same time). Disney tried to go paperless with The Princess and the Frog in 2009, but the animators weren't comfortable with using Cintiqs and did layout drawings on paper anyway. Anime productions were still done on paper as recently as 2018 and some might still do so today - in fact, over there Pokemon actually made the *news* for going paperless.
