Don Bluth Launches New Studio To Usher In ‘Renaissance Of Hand-Drawn Animation’

Quote

While Netflix develops an adaptation of his iconic game Dragon’s Lair, Don Bluth, 82, is looking ahead to future projects. The animation legend behind The Secret of NIMH and The Land Before Time has launched a new venture, Don Bluth Studios, with the express goal to create “new characters, new ideas, and new cartoons.”

I don't trust Netflix to do a good job with that >.<

*sets Netflix's "She-Ra and the Princesses of Power" series on fire*😝

They are probably just going to prop up an elderly Booth Biden-style to bait-and-switch people ‘woke’ degenerate garbage. I sold all my stock in Netflix after that filthy pedo-debacle. I won’t support a company that will try to give my young loved ones colorful characters aside toxic and dangerous  messages. It’s the memetic version of that creepy guy with candy.
 

 Hand drawn animation does indeed need a renaissance in the west. It’s lush and traditional art still frankly has more to offer than digital. But we don’t need to merely look backwards, but double down on the strengths of traditional art

That wasn't a debate; it was a train wreck. Serves 'em right for letting the conductor drive the train :P

A giant forged me a sword of reverse metagaming. My character knows exactly what it does, but I have no idea.

I find the physics hilarious behind huge anime weapons like the piko-piko hammer Or a buster sword. Even if we assume that characters like Amy or Cloud have the arcane-infused physical strength to wield those weapons, they still are subject to the first three laws of physics. A strike’s momentum would force them to move with the strike. If the flung the weapon forwards for example, they’d catapult forwards with it. They’d never be able to strike and stay on their feet. The force at which they hit directly into things would also bring immense physical stress. Contrary to popular anecdotes, boards do, in a way, hit back. You hit a wall, an opposite force  would transfer into your body. Constitution would need to be another key factor, not just strength. Hitting something with some resistance would probably break a wrist at least. They might as well just hold on and hope to cannonball into people. 🤣

“Voters Don’t Deserve to Know.”
 

Geez...that’s actually worse than “basket of deplorables.” That smug contempt of the populace is stunning. 

That's the kind of elitist attitude which turms normal people off & justifies the need for term limits >.< It is that kind of attitude which led people to vote for Trump over Hilary - he wasn't a politician & she was a big part of the establishment. The founding fathers did not intend for politics to become a career -.-

This guy (and his coke head son) has been feeding off our tax money for fifty years. He’s so old he was spouting about Pro segregation ideas in his early career when that nasty crap was still vote-worthy.  Over 16 million third party last go around. And those independent votes were overwhelmingly right-winged. I don’t think the democrat strategists realize (or are willing to admit) that Hilary’s ideas and candidacy did loose the popular vote, and still are. They just voted further right than Trump. The majority of Americans don’t want more taxation and stealth-tax via inflation. One of my long time democrat friends just left the party to become libertarian. If we had an alternative voting system, like we should, Democrats would probably never win the popular vote. Many would pick a right wing non-republican as their first choice, and if he did not make the majority, would have their second choice be a Republican. In this go around, Trump has had four years to appeal to Mccmillian and Johnson voters. And doubt that many at all will vote Joe Biden...Many on the news have ignored this number in their chat about appealing to ‘blacks.’ Yes, Trump has increased the ‘ethnic’ vote drastically for the Republicans. But this independent vote fact is more looming, and being blanketed in buzzwords and soundbytes. They have make this a racial conversation, not an idealogical one. Their unpopular opinions rely on racialism, a divide and conquer.
 

The funny thing here is that Trump idea-wise is the most centralist candidate, even if he is conservative. When you have one guy wanting to play sweet with frankly tyrannical people like Whitmer and De Blasio, then you don’t appeal to the middle. 

Places like New York and Michigan could actually flip. I just worry about extremism. The attempted violence on Whitmer is the wrong path, to take down a person in the wrong.

Ahh yes, a hint of that sweet Green Hill Red. 1991, a good year. XD

Le Vin d'émeraude 1991, pairs well with Áosth Cheese and Satám Caviar. Sonic looks like he’s been hanging out in the casino zone too long. 🤣

In Prohibition-era US, Doctors were able to prescribe medicinal alcohol for their patients. After just six months of prohibition, over 15,000 doctors and 57,000 pharmacists received licenses to prescribe or sell medicinal alcohol. According to Gastro Obscura,

Physicians wrote an estimated 11 million prescriptions a year throughout the 1920s, and Prohibition Commissioner John F. Kramer even cited one doctor who wrote 475 prescriptions for whiskey in one day. It wasn’t tough for people to write—and fill—counterfeit subscriptions at pharmacies, either. Naturally, bootleggers bought prescription forms from crooked doctors and mounted widespread scams. In 1931, 400 pharmacists and 1,000 doctors were caught in a scam where doctors sold signed prescription forms to bootleggers. Just 12 doctors and 13 pharmacists were indicted, and the ones charged faced a one-time $50 fine. Selling alcohol through drugstores became so much of a lucrative open secret that it’s name-checked in works such as The Great Gatsby. Historians speculate that Charles R. Walgreen, of Walgreen’s fame, expanded from 20 stores to a staggering 525 during the 1920s thanks to medicinal alcohol sales."

 

And that's how Walgreens became one of the largest pharmacies in the US

Walgreen's: We get ya drunk.

One of the most wretched violations of the Wilson years (despite his rampant racism).

Parler is so much more interesting than Twitter mechanics-wise. 1000 Character limit. But it really needs more intellectual diversity to be valid competition. I am not a fan of echo chambers like Leftwing Tumbler and don’t want to see it become Republicanstan.

@WarTraveller That's not the case, basically it's a smaller, conservative version of Twitter. So far less nut jobs. I wouldn't be surprised if it hits a boom in the next few years. Only came out a year or so ago, it's really new.

I think we actually have a good system going with our dialogue section. @Wulfsbane and I have it where it optional to be a part of that and if you get opinionated about a topic, you can either get in the ring or just let it slide and not even get notifications on such. There should always be an option to be apoltical, unlike on Twitter. One thing we believe however is that you must focus on dialogue rather than dissent if you decide to get into contentious topics. It filters out the people who just want to disagree to disagree, powermonger, soap-box, or troll, and focuses people on constructive solutions and consensus making. 
 

Groups like Parler have the free speech thing down pat. But they need to develop into this more, in my humble opinion.

Quite a few posts on there say otherwise as fewer users show the nut jobs to be more prominent. There's quite a few sites out there that track peoples posts and share the more extreme ones. Twitter has that problem too but it's ignored from time to time.

 

While I get the ideal behind it and I do support the general mission statement, I can't bring myself to use it yet. I needs to be more balanced.

 

I also have my filters set up on twitter so I don't see anything political unless I'm actively looking for it. More often than not I don't.

I personally do not want to support Twitter after literally censoring a president but letting other people advocate genocide of Jews, and the fact it lets extremists to organize violent “demonstrations.” I find it deeply unethical to use it now and give it any fiscal support. I never had a Facebook either because it’s a data-theif and a time thief. I will never commend violence. I also think the character limit on Twitter inspires toxicity and misunderstandings.

Someone did on Parler get extreme on me. I shut them up fast. And people liked what I had to say. If I get downvoted by a few right-wing nuts and left-wing trolls then so be it. I  But I mostly find the echo-chamber stuff the saddest part in the comment sections. But to be honest I see that everywhere. It’s basically all super-chats are. I hate yes-man comments. Don’t talk if you don’t have anything to actually say.

I never had an account there, but I agree that kinda stuff is wrong.

It's gotten really bad on You Tube >.< Yeah, it seems to be everywhere though. Seems like most people have forgotten how to have a civil discourse. 🤮
