SKIP (feature)


some people have been wanting a guide to drawing Arthur and Mesi so these are some general notes (although they ended up being more about movement and form rather than anything… helpful… oops)

I guess it’s kind of a breakdown of how their action matches their personality and design more than anything else but hey it was a good change of gear for me \o/


Mod Calendar?

Ok… oh god… I think… I think I got this…

1. modmad I’d like your blessing on this blatantly obsession feeding calendar.

2. Am I right in thinking that caramelkeks did the coloring for the Gravity Falls collaboration/trade between you two? I’ll need your blessing upon this as well. 

3. I couldn’t fit all 12 months because there’s a 10 photo limit. (Thumbs, Cover, and 8 months.)

4. I’ve added the post number and the date to every single image involved in this calendar. (#HASHTAG# ALL THE REFERENCES. I’m a stickler for sources.)

5. There’s a promo code that lasts until Dec. 28th so printing this will be hella cheaper if I can submit it to print before then. 

6. [Insert link to post of the last 4 months/images]

7. [update] oh god… OH GOD! ALL THE REBLOGs!! I will update this post if I get permission (so ya’ll can know about it.) and if I officially DON’T get permission I will take this post down in respect! 

8. Please don’t print this or anything. 

9. FYI It took a full week to compile this!


Skip!verse means… infinite AUs, right?  So this is actually totally plausible, right?  

But anyway this is mod’s character’s Arthur and Mesi from SKIP and if you haven’t watched that yet you should. (Mostly I just wanted to draw those outfits on them aha even though I definitely didn’t do the characters justice!)

Oh and the background / dragon images are straight from the movies, I didn’t draw those.

… Hello, tumblr.

I never really planned on using this account, but who knows! And what better way to start than with fanart?

These two adorable characters belong to modmad!

… I’m sure there is an alternative universe somewhere in which they are cousins (and Arthur has been Hero’s uncle in an AU before, so.).

Haha, I don’t even know what to write in this description. ^^“

(As for the rose, I was thinking of The Little Prince recently and…).

Fox, Dish Settle Lawsuit Over Ad-Skipping, Other Features

Fox Broadcasting and Dish Network have settled their lawsuit over Dish’s AutoHop service, ending years of litigation over the technology that includes automatic ad skipping.

Terms of the settlement were not disclosed, but in a joint statement, the companies said that Dish’s AutoHop commercial skipping feature would not be available for Fox stations until seven days after a program airs.

The sides filed papers to dismiss the case in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles on Wednesday. A settlement had been expected for months, after the parties asked for a stay of the case to give them time to work on a resolution.

“Fox Networks Group and Dish Network LLC have reached an agreement resulting in the dismissal of all pending litigation between the two companies, including disputes over Slingbox technology and the AutoHop, PrimeTime Anytime and Transfers features,” the companies said.

Broadcasters challenged Dish Network’s new Hopper DVR features in lawsuits filed in 2012, including one, AutoHop, that automatically skips over ads for subscribers. But ABC and CBS settled their litigation against Dish as they sought to renew carriage agreements.

Fox claimed that Dish Hopper features, such as Primetime Anytime, in which entire nights of programming are automatically recorded for subscribers, violate its copyright as well as carriage contracts.

Fox had also argued that Dish’s PrimeTime Anytime service violates a contract with Dish that prohibits them from offering Fox content on video-on-demand.

Dish, on the other hand, has said the function works like a DVR, with the consumer making the copy, not the company.

Last year, U.S. District Judge Dolly Gee wrote that Dish’s offering of AutoHop and another feature, Dish Anywhere, which allows subscribers to watch live broadcasts remotely, does not violate copyright law.

She sided with Fox in concluding that some of the Dish features, like Hopper Transfers, which enables users to download shows on mobile devices, violated its contract agreements with the broadcaster that restrict copying of programming for use outside the home. She also found fault with Dish’s quality assurance copying of Fox programming, ruling that it violated Fox’s exclusive right of reproduction.

okay Arthur may be 6'1 6'0 to the T but Tony is tall, terrifying, and fully aware of his effect on people

Free Spotify Review

Over the past couple of weeks I have used the free version of Spotify to listen to music during my workouts. I normally use the free version of Pandora and have setup stations that deliver new music to choose from. Here’s my experience with Spotify.

At first I was apprehensive about creating an account. I have some loyalty to Pandora though I’ve never paid for their commercial free service. Upon creating a Spotify account I found it was easy to sync all of my preferences and liked the playlist addition. You can save songs to your library and have the option of listening to music offline (though I don’t know how that makes a difference with the free version). Both Pandora and Spotify have the skip feature so you can skip through any song that you don’t like. Instead of listening to channels using Spotify I listened to the workout playlist I created. My playlist consists of music from Fetty Wap to Britney Spears. If the song was a little slower (LL Cool J’s Doin It Well) and I was on the treadmill I could easily skip to the next song. It plays songs in shuffle mode to spice things up. I noticed that after I created my playlist I added two new songs and the shuffle NEVER incorporated those new songs. Tragically I transferred all the songs over to my library and was able to listen to the songs that way. The library is set to shuffle as well which is an option I don’t know if I like. Since my workout playlist is shuffle why would I need my library to do the same? The commercials are insane. They can range from 1-2 minutes in length. If you skip 6 songs you are stuck listening to whatever song they suggest EVEN if you are listening to your playlist or your own library. In one solid 45 minute weight lifting workout I would hear a break 3 times just for commercials. To be considered commercial free with unlimited skips you have to pay $10/month for this feature.

Overall I will continue to use Spotify because of the playlist feature at the gym and will keep using Pandora for everything else (fewer commercials and they are not very long plus they know what I like to hear). Spotify might bore me enough to get a new iPod so I can listen to my new playlists uninterrupted. I give Spotify a 7 out of 10.


I’m actually quite glad someone made me bring up this part of Arthur’s character, because it goes a long way to explaining why one of his first interactions with Mesi is such a complete car crash.

Also for those who are surprised, he’s not exactly the first silent comedian to get tangled up in WWI

Fox And Dish Network Resolve Ad-Skip Dispute, Agreeing To 7-Day Delay

Dish Network subscribers won’t be able to use their Hopper DVRs anymore to automatically skip past ads on new shows that air on Fox owned or affiliated stations.

The companies just settled their multi-year legal dispute over the technology. And as a part of that deal the “AutoHop commercial-skipping functionality will not be available for owned and affiliated Fox stations until seven days after a program first airs,” the companies say in a joint statement.

The agreement covers disputes involving “Slingbox technology and the AutoHop, PrimeTime Anytime and Transfers features.” It’s part of a stipulated dismissal of the case that Fox brought in 2012 against Dish at the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles. (Read it here.)

In December 2014 Dish made a similar deal with CBS to disable the AutoHop ad-skipping feature for shows out less than a week.

Fox alleged that the AutoHop technology infringed on its copyrights and breached the terms of its carriage deal with Dish. The No. 2 satellite company countered that it was a consumer-friendly change that merely automated the ad skipping that consumers already do with their remote controls.

The settlement comes a little more than a year after Dish and Fox put the case on hold while they worked on a carriage deal to replace the one that expired in October.
