THE SCROLLING BACKGROUNDS
they never stop scrolling but man I just love how sketchy everything looks
technically everything is overdone, even the things I love. Like space operas I can never get enough of. and I will take every giant robot you got
question as an otomo fan who hates steampunk how do you feel about steamboy
I have a major beef with victorian england or colonial america settings and I’ll never be able to explain why
they just.. annoy me
the beat sheet and other such three act structure “templates” like the hero’s journey aren’t the only way to write things, and using them can become cliche and boring. But if you’re really stuck, they’re great tools.
In fact, if you follow the beat sheet to a T, people will probably notice and lose interest, deem the story uncreative, ect. I doubt you can literally just start filling in “ok, what is my dark night of the soul going to be?”, there ought to be more things played with characters and their decisions, making people have to really wonder how they’re going to problem solve.
I love abstraction too, I really do, but for various assignments and for the sake of being able to find work as a writer it helps to have a mental guide line of “the standard” so that you know how to logically manipulate it.
Also, for instance, How to Train your Dragon specifically owed a lot of its creation to The Beat Sheet.
it’s so visually unappealing that it loops right back around to being visually appealing again
watching them when I was older, undoubtably one of the best parts of those VHS tapes were the commercials.
I swear, there’s something so undeniably charming about the audio and video quality of 80’s and early 90’s /anything/. I can’t even explain it. That slight warble to everyone’s voice like they’re speaking through an out of tune piano… the sort of fuzzy lines.. little visible chunks of dust on the cel. It’s all aesthetically beautiful to me
Maybe it IS nostalgia speaking, it does make me feel very nostalgic, but I think there’s something else to it too
mirthbound said:really?! how old are you??
Well, I’m 22, but see: my parents recorded a ton of cartoons for my brother on VHS when he was younger. He’s 30.
I’d estimate there were at least 10 VHS tapes we had with random cartoons on them.
I grew up watching those VHSes over and over. There were several episodes of this cartoon on it.
Also on the VHS tapes of magic and mystery: Hidei of the alps, scamper the penguin, serindipity, Jaycee and the wheeled warriors, transformers, so many episodes of my little pony, rainbow brite, the smurfs and yadayada you get the idea.
We’d both skip over certain shows when we watched them: He’d skip over the girly ones like rainbow brite, and I took a pass on jaycee and transformers, ect.
It was magical
We also had all the rankin bass christmas specials bootlegged too
And Honey I shrunk the Kids
Several other movies I can’t remember
In addition, during the 90’s, my parents VHS recorded every episode of The Magic School Bus for me: and sometimes half of an Arthur episode, if they started the recording early.
the new daft punk album is just incredible, everything I wanted it to be
I think discovery is going to be my favorite daft punk album for life though because, well, leiji matsumoto
