I absolutely can’t stand humanized versions of animal characters. They’re almost universally creepy. And anime-ish for God knows what reason.

And meanwhile I’m thinking: “What in God’s name was wrong with them being an animal in the first place??” For some reason I get this vibe from them that seems to say that they’re not mere experiments, but rather so-called “improvements” or even replacements.
I’ve seen artists who draw almost nothing else- people who shouldn’t even be drawing humans.

Exploitable meme-ish thing I made. Inspired by a post elsewhere on Tumblr, but heck if I’m going to try and find it again.

What’s Honest John reading?

You know it’s the ’70s when composers add electric bass to completely inappropriate music styles.

I suppose the Pokémon world is lucky that all those evil organizations don’t appear to use any conventional weapons.

Their ‘conventional weapons’ are Pokemon.

You’ve completely misunderstood my point.

It’s actually kinda cute if you like that sort of thing.

You’d think a book about Classical, Medieval and Renaissance monsters would be a fairly simple thing:
~Focus on the beasts and monsters that don’t exist and the real animals that were given impossible attributes
~Include translated text from bestiaries, firsthand accounts, and myths and legends
~Go beyond just griffins and dragons and creatures that everybody has already heard of
~And tons and tons of color reproductions of contemporary artwork

But I haven’t quite found a book that fits that description perfectly.

I will NOT believe that ’90s nostalgia is mainstream until I start seeing shows resembling Darkwing Duck, Bonkers, Rocko’s Modern Life, Angry Beavers, Dexter’s Lab and Tiny Toons on television again.

Wander Over Yonder is really the only show like that. I guess it helps that Craig McCracken is the creator.

Seriously though, why aren’t there more ’90s kids in the animation business, though?? You’d think considering how strongly opinionated we are, somebody would be trying to make a change in the world of American animation.

It seems like me and my brother are the only people who’re trying to do it.

(Unless of course the kids who only watched Ren & Stimpy and South Park are managing it…)

Grammar mistake no one else seems to have noticed: “must of” instead of “must’ve”
