  1. Well, there goes the last of my hope.

    Apparently Star Wars Episode 9 was being filmed and edited at the same time. ( http://rainbowdash.net/url/874706 ) It is already a miracle if a one-off movie is being made well by editing and filming at the same time, but for something that will be put under a magnifying lens by millions upon millions of Star Wars fans ?

    Might as well brace for the insanity that will come from it. Idunno, Maybe blaming GamerGate as a reason why many people dislike a movie ( oh yes, that did happen previously, go read http://rainbowdash.net/url/874707 if you want to lose your faith in humanity )

    But hey, who knows, maybe I am wrong. Time will tell. But I will reserve FULL rights to rant about it some more when time comes to pass.

    • @drinkingpony “simultaneous work” does not equate to “rush job”. If you have seven people work on seven different tasks concurrently, it can all be done in the time it takes to do one thing alone.

    • @mrmattimation If something that is usually done subsequent is done simultaneously in order to meet a significantly more tight release schedule then...

      Well what would you call it if you were specifically told not to call it a 'rush job' ?

      You might want to look into how other modern movies are made, Especially Star Wars by Disney and MCU ( Also by Disney ). Though I guess there is tons to learn regarding failures by other studio's as well. For instance take http://rainbowdash.net/url/874715 ( 6:38 - 7:00 , would you look at that smug face, yowzers )

      Now does it "have to" be bad that they are doing to SW:e9 ? Ofcourse not. However if I rub my crystal ball while throwing my geomancy rocks and somehow simultaneously manage to shake my magic 8 ball, wiggle my divination rod, flip some tarot cards, twiddle some fortune sticks AND use one of those human girly teenager fortune teller thingies. They would either tell me "Outlook not so good" or "You are about to have an accident"

        • @mrmattimation Yes, every day. As for running out of magic juice to make it all better, that seems to be an eternal struggle.

          That is why I occassionally have trips to either the liquor store, or Dr Liquor. No quite serious, that is her name.

          I can recommend one for starters and the other for the advanced types of 'feeling down'

I don’t have the following to crowdfund. I’m several thousand dollars in debt so I can’t take any financial risks at all. I’m now in a degree program I don’t care about because I’ve been rejected from the art program three times in three years and I’ve spent too much time and money at college to drop out. Everything’s just kiwied right now.

                            • @drinkingpony I haven't seen Bob's Burgers in a while but my last impression was that it was alright. Yeah, a bit clingy at times but mostly in a relatable way. I can also see its appeal or lack thereof.

                            • @adiwan [ mostly in a relatable way. ]

                              Now I know that is a feeling, and I could never tell you that you are wrong. But things like Gravity Falls and MLP feel more relatable to me than BB. Not in that I actually come into contact with magic on the daily ( I should fix that ) but I would save my sibling from vampires or get all exited when I get one of my friends involved with one of my hobbies to the point where I forego my normal silent and reserved demeanor ( That is a long way around to get to scratch my back, but I hope you get what I mean... Fluttershy and Tank, I am thinking about that thing ). The motivations seem to remain stable and similar enough where I am able to crawl in their mindset.

                              Meanwhile in BB, let us say that the characters are indeed deeper to the point where the other two pale in comparison. Then you run into the trouble of never ever being able to show us enough of their actual personalities to make enough connections for relatablility, and that takes me out.
