Be on the lookout for this kid in the next episode. In case you forgot, this is one of the Make-a-Wish recipients who got to appear in and voice his character in an episode.
it probably doesn’t help that this is the first time I’ve actually heard Kdin, and most of what I know is that he’s a giant troll lord.
Oh my gOD! Kdin is a fucking NERD! Most people on megacraft are like “Wow, that’s insane, that’s so cool”
and Kdin is like “HAVEN’T YOU EVER WATCHED ANIME MATT? THIS IS JAPAN. WOW. OH MY GOD THOSE LEAVES. THEY MADE THEIR OWN TEXTURE PACK? TWO DAYS?!!!”
I still think Mitt Romney looks like Redd White from Ace Attorney.
Someone please take photoshop away from me.
Finished my reading for Pride, in about an hour and 15 minutes, which is nice. Now I’ll only have Northanger to read this evening.
Some of my favorite Wind Waker Manga pages.
The girl in the background made the blonde girl’s desktop background a picture of her holding a sign that said “Hi there. So um…Will you be my girlfriend?” while she was in the bathroom. This is the girl’s response.
AHHH THIS IS SO CUTE
I love Elizabeth. She takes absolutely none of Darcy’s shit. You fucking go, Elizabeth.
Some choice passages:
I had to understand that the audience only wanted white, straight, male leads. I was assured that as long as I made the white, straight men in my scripts prominent, I could still offer groundbreaking characters of other descriptions (fascinating, significant women, men of color, etc.) – as long as they didn’t distract the audience from the white men they really paid their money to see.
Only to learn there was still something wrong with my writing, something unanticipated by my professors.My scripts had multiple women with names. Talking to each other. About something other than men. That, they explained nervously, was not okay. I asked why. Well, it would be more accurate to say I politely demanded a thorough, logical explanation that made sense for a change (I’d found the “audience won’t watch women!” argument pretty questionable, with its ever-shifting reasons and parameters).
At first I got several tentative murmurings about how it distracted from the flow or point of the story. I went through this with more than one professor, more than one industry professional. Finally, I got one blessedly telling explanation from an industry pro: “The audience doesn’t want to listen to a bunch of women talking about whatever it is women talk about.”
According to Hollywood, if two women came on screen and started talking, the target male audience’s brain would glaze over and assume the women were talking about nail polish or shoes or something that didn’t pertain to the story. Only if they heard the name of a man in the story would they tune back in. By having women talk to each other about something other than men, I was “losing the audience.”
