had a dream last night that agora road was connected to an image page that required you to have a yahoo email address. if you didn't have the email you couldn't see the images just white boxes. after you used your email to log in every image on the page looked like this attached file, just stock images of women with red text over them
Might as well share this here since I don't have much of an audience for my graphic art.

The art was based on items from GaiaOnline.

**I already posted this in the stories sub-forum, but I figured I'd keep a collection of here for both ease of access and my own sake**

This is the first short story I wrote for a collection that I've been working on for a little over a year and am soon going to publish.

Let me know what you think in the comments below, or if you really want, you can message me. My office hours are open and negotiable.

    Was that a ref to the Drone Kill List the Obama Administration drew up, or is that just a historical coincidence?

    American capeshit the way I see it is just mindless fun entertainment. If I want to watch ridiculous fight scenes and shit get blown up ill enjoy it but idgaf about the plot really.

    Industrial age American animation is pretty fascinating to me though. 20s 30s 40s 50s 60s. Nobody made anything else like it in the world and it seems really far ahead of it's time visually.

    Like old disney and WB where every frame was drawn by hand on an immense scale.

    They basically invented what we know today as the modern cartoon.

    A few people on here have inspired me to learn more about Japan than the teeny bit I kinda knew. It has definitely solidified my desire to travel there although living there itself seems intimidating even if just due to the language barrier

    The fact that they did this when "computer" was just some obscure profession is mind blowing

    Back when they used to have sometimes just one or two guys as the design leads for each character instead of whole teams and committees.

    Those guys were basically just actors who drew themselves performing. Absolutely insane.

    I own an old US designed truck pre EFI. Still works amazingly and is simple but effective. Now no offense but "Made in USA" a lot of the time means Chinese quality at Japanese prices

    Hollywood stuff bores tf out of me except Tarantino he is at least more "organic" and he will probably go into the list of great directors one day in a few decades when he gets old

  • lobster45:
    I genuinely believe in that too. There's something about his movies. He's definitely what you could call in some way a pop director, and because of that some of his stuff can become a bit of what you could also call "cringe-y". But he clearly loves, like immerses himself, and has done so for a long time, in making movies; and there's some part about that where, when you see it, for me, I just sit back and think ,"Alright let's just see what he does."

    I think like the AAA video game industry the big hollywood studios biggest emphasis is the "latest" visual effects regardless of if the movie itself is good or entertaining
    Link
  • lobster45:
    The focus has definitely shifted. It's way easier now to make a big movie for less time and effort than it would take to get even an equivalent, not even speaking of profitable, return for a small movie. Developing story and characters and letting a director really attempt to make a film is too expensive a risk. You don't need something like the original Star Wars from an economic standpoint if you have literally all of its parts. They're literally like stripping down great films and just funneling all their shit into cheaper knock-offs.

    Which is honestly fine because I think it's a strategy that's failing.
