Relishing their new relationship, Korra and Asami leave the spirit world … but find nothing in Republic City but political high jinks and human vs. spirit conflict!
A pompous developer plans to turn the new spirit portal into an amusement park, potentially severing an already tumultuous connection with the spirits. What’s more, the triads have realigned and are in a brutal all-out brawl at the city’s borders—where hundreds of evacuees have relocated!

To all designers, aspiring or otherwise, I need your help!

I am currently doing my master thesis around sustainable design because for me all design thinking should be sustainable design thinking. We as designers quite literally make the future, so we should think about what kind of future we want to make.

Although most designers will probably (hopefully) agree with me that we have to move towards more sustainable design practices, it isn’t always easy to know what that means, and even harder to put into practice or to reconcile it with all the other things our designs should meet.

And that is precisely where it goes wrong, sustainable design is not about choosing one over the other, it’s about fitting ALL the puzzle pieces on the board, but we can’t do that if we work within the boundaries of our current systems.  So how can we change our mindset to design a more sustainable future?

And this is the part where you come in : to understand what goes wrong with sustainable design today, I want to know how YOU approach sustainable design today, so reblog/comment below or send me a message here answering the following questions: 

to all designers: 

  • What do you think sustainable design means? 
  • What do you think are the limitations right now and what would you like to see changed? 
  • How do you factor in sustainability when you are designing? 
  • Even if you don’t factor it in at all, tell me why! 

And to all aspiring designers: 

  • How is sustainability taught at your school? Or how have you learned about sustainability and sustainable design? 
  • Is it something you think about? Why or why not? 
  • Has it been easy learning about it? Do you feel like your school could do more? 
  •  And off course also what do you think sustainability is?  Do you feel like it’s impossible to reconcile with other requirements?

If you are not a designer you can always help me by sharing this message, or if you have thoughts as well feel free to chime in!. 

Thank you in advance for helping and have a free virtual world chocolate for your trouble ;)

On shooting her commanding sex scene with Daario (Michiel Huisman) in the fourth season of GOT: It’s brilliant. I actually went up to [GOT cocreators David Benioff and Dan Weiss] and thanked them. I was like, ‘That’s a scene I’ve been waiting for!’ Because I get a lot of crap for having done nudes scenes and sex scenes. That, in itself, is so antifeminist. Women hating on other women is just the problem. That’s upsetting, so it’s kind of wonderful to have a scene where I was like, 'There you go!’

animallover10914  asked:

Have you ever read the The Search For WondLa series? It's got some really cool alien designs and a pretty good story

Never read them (or even head of them before you told me)

My immidiate thought was it looks like a sci fi  story created by a fantasy writer/illustrator (which is not a bad thing), then I found out it was made by Tony DiTerlizzi who is one of the cocreators of the Spiderwick series which explains the sweet designs.

I like the Giant Tardigrade

Projects I finished over 2017. Illustrated/cocreator credit on Mega Princess w writer @1979semifinalist (thank you!) published by @boom_studios

Wrote and drew almost an entire chapter of Harpy Gee (ch 4 will be done beginning of March)

Three years so far at Nickelodeon, finished and directed an unannounced pilot and currently drawing storyboard revisions on the upcoming Glitch Techs cartoon created by Eric Robles

Storyboarded Banana Cat, music by Parry Gripp , animation by @smallbutera

💖lots of bucket list stuff, thank you to the many that made this year possible and happy!

If you don’t know who those 2 wonderful human beings in the first pic are, they’re Allison Raskin and Gaby Dunn, cocreators of the Youtube channel Just Between Us. I recently saw a comment on one of their videos saying that their dynamic was very similar to Dan and Phil’s. I completely disagree with this, and I think if it were true, I wouldn’t like either of these channels as much. Dan and Phil are very different people, but they share enough similarities (both aesthetically and personality-wise) that it is easy to see why they are best friends. Gaby and Allison have so many differences you would never guess that they would get along, so their friendship is really entertaining. 

Each of these duos has completely unique dynamics, and that’s why we love them. Because they can’t quite be compared to anyone else.

Keep doing what you’re doing, guys.

-The New Yorker

*** “From tackling toddler meltdowns to bringing up baby in any conversation, comedian Doug Moe’s irreverent take on the absurdity of fatherhood is a refreshing read for new dads. It feels like you’re chatting with a friend who admittedly doesn’t know everything, but does know exactly what you’re going through.”

- Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine

*** “Wow is it terrific – funny, smart, relatable, and actually filled with some very good tips, from handling sleepless nights for tips to get rid of your kids’ weird friends on playdates.”

- Cool Mom Picks

*** “Yes, it’s just one man’s point of view, but we have a feeling your guy will find more than enough in common with this hilarious dad-in-training.”

- PureWow

- Michael Showalter, writer/director and cocreator of Wet Hot American Summer

*** “A taut, erotic thriller. This is a smart, dark look at  the human condition, our strengths and our weaknesses.  Doug Moe has done it again.  I did not read this book.”

- Jason Mantzoukas, actor and comedian, The League

We are already in every dimension so there is no shifting dimensions, just shifting perspectives. All possible futures already exist. Which one will YOU choose is the question. Life is co-creation. Being consciously “present”, aware of our energy, is the best thing we can do for ourself and the planet. It’s not our job to “fix” everything, or others, it’s our job to be our authentic selves in each moment doing what we truly feel. This is how we attune the ego and higher self –Jeff Andrews

anonymous asked:

As a cocreator for the blackout how do you feel about dark skin appreciation day?

I think it’s great. I love all the appreciation days, it’s dope to give specific people shine since Blackout is so General and huge that a lot of people feel left out.

We need to talk.

We love you guys and everything you create.

But please make sure what you submit is entirely your own creation, unless you have explicit permission or are cocreating with someone.

We will NOT accept submissions that are other people’s creations that you’ve tweaked or edited to make your own.

We will NOT accept reposts.

And by that we mean if someone’s made an edit or a gif or a fic and all you’ve done is edited what they did – that is not your own creation. Edit the original photo to how you want it, create the gif yourself, write the fic on your own, but don’t take someone else’s work and try to make it your own.

We won’t make it public, but we will send you an ask if we find out your post isn’t entirely yours.

And we don’t do anything unless we have proof. If our proof is wrong and you did make your posts entirely, then you’ll need counter proof.

The welters challenge loves everyone. We don’t love art theft, though.

And that’s one issue we need to be clear about.

We haven’t had a lot of issues with this, but we just need to be clear. If your post isn’t 100% yours, don’t submit it.

Once Upon a Time Bosses Talk New Curse Twist, Rumple's 'Fun' Mission and Gothel's 'Very Specific' Grudge

Kitsis and Horowitz interview post 7.10

Before entering its long winter break, ABC’s Once Upon a Time left viewers with a chilling, new truth about the Dark Curse that deposited Regina, Rumple and others in Hyperion Heights with new identities.

In a bounty of flashbacks to the other realm, we learned that when Regina and Zelena — with Wish Hook, Ella and Jack offering backup — went to stop Drizella from casting said curse, they discovered that captured Henry had been fatally poisoned. And the only way to save him was for the new curse to be cast… by Regina.

Meanwhile in Hyperion Heights, Regina sought out/woke up San Francisco spin instructor Kelly aka Zelena so that they might combine their resources and save whammied Lucy, though to do so likely means undoing the curse — thus leaving Henry to die.

TVLine checked in with Once cocreators Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz on the latest twists and what’s ahead in Season 7B (premiering March 2).

TVLINE | I knew there was a reason that all these weeks I was very careful never to write “Drizella cast the curse.”
EDDY KITSIS | You were right!

TVLINE | When in the course of hashing out Season 7 did you decide to make the casting of the curse a major mystery element?
KITSIS | Right from the beginning.
ADAM HOROWITZ | We felt that while there are some echoes and parallels to Season 1, we wanted to do a different thing. So it was a conscious decision when we did the premiere to not show who cast the curse, and make that an element of the storytelling for the season.
KITSIS | We also loved and were inspired by the 3B arc when we didn’t know who cast the curse, and it turned out to be Snow and Charming.

TVLINE | I went back and rewatched the scene at the bar where Regina (played by Lana Parrilla) awakens, and it’s completely recontexualized now. I’m going to embed that scene in my post mortem and recommend readers do same.
KITSIS | I wish you would, because then they’ll at least see that we plan these things. [Laughs] They can say, “They really do plan these things.”
HOROWITZ | Lana and Adelaide [Kane, as Drizella/Ivy] were so great in that scene. Those two are pretty wonderful together.
KITSIS | We always wanted to start this season in a way that the viewers are like, “Oh, OK, Lady Tremaine is the villain. I get it.” And then have it really be Drizella.
HOROWITZ | And that was a conscious decision to have [Ivy/Drizella] be a bit in the background for the first few episodes, giving you a little taste of her before she really came to the forefront. Adelaide was our “secret weapon,” and it’s been so much fun to unleash her in these last few episodes.

TVLINE | Coming out of fall finale, Regina and Zelena are faced with quite the Catch-22 — to save Lucy they have to break the curse. But if they break the curse, Henry will die.
KITSIS | Yes, and one of the things we’re excited about is seeing the two sisters work together in a way we haven’t really seen. They’re going to have to find that third way, hopefully. Toward that goal, they’re going to have to attack it on two fronts. Immediately you’re going to see in the spring premiere that they’re faced with a very large decision, as far as Lucy’s life hanging in the balance. That is going to come first, and at the same time they have to figure out a way to save Henry’s heart. They’re also in a land without magic, so we really tried to make it as hard as possible for them to figure out a third way.

TVLINE | And will the trick for Rumple be to enlist the help of Rogers and Tilly without spelling out exactly what’s going on, with this Coven of Eight being in town?
KITSIS |  That is exactly what’s going to happen. We’re going to be seeing an arc with the witches that will involve of the three of them, where he is going to have to communicate that a coven of witches are back to create Hell on Earth — but he can’t use those terms. [Laughs] His job is hard, but it’s fun watching him motivate them towards his goals.

TVLINE | Does Rumple perhaps have the means to awaken Wish Hook and Tilly?
KITSIS | He doesn’t. We’re pretty much in a land without magic, and the only people that seem to wield it are people that were smart enough to come over awake. He doesn’t have the magic to wake them up, so he has to do it the old-fashioned way, through motivation.

TVLINE | Should we be wondering, or worrying, who will fill out the Coven of Eight? Or is it a bunch of red shirts?
KITSIS | You never know. What we’ll say is there is a giant curve ball that we will see thrown into the assembling of the Coven of Eight. Everyone will go into it thinking it’s just going to be Gothel assembling it and creating a plan, and there is a huge curve ball that comes into it that hopefully surprises people.

TVLINE | What’s next on the Henry/Jacinda front?
KITSIS | Well, we now know that if they have True Love’s Kiss and break the curse, Henry is going to die, so it’s going to be very tough, because these two clearly have feelings for each other. What we’re going to see is Regina is going to have to team up with her granddaughter to help save Henry. We’re going to see some Operation Save Henry in the second half of the season, with Regina and Lucy.

TVLINE | Lastly, what do you want to say about Gothel’s motivation? And why put all the magic into Anastasia instead of Drizzy, with whom she was already allied?
KITSIS | I think because Drizella is still under the assumption that she is going to get revenge and she’s in charge, and this is Gothel dismissing that. [Laughs] Drizella is no longer useful, nor does Gothel have a lot of respect for her; she’s very mercenary. As far as what she has in mind, that is going to be revealed, and it it is going to directly affect the happiness and the happy ending of another character. She is targeting someone very specifically, for a very specific reason. There may be a showdown coming!

anonymous asked:

What gives you inspirations for all of the weird stuff going on in Violet Beach?

okay so. here’s a non-definitive list of the show’s Weird Shit inspirations:

  • welcome to night vale is obviously a huge influence on the show. it was the first podcast i ever actively listened to, and it was the first time i saw myself as a gay person represented in Weird Fiction in a way that felt, despite everything, real. so a lot of the more Just Plain Weird things (the sticky notes in ep 1, for example), and the more purple-prosey sections have roots in that.
    • charlotte’s surname is a shoutout to its cocreator, jeffrey cranor, who follows one of my sideblogs, hashtag humblebrag, etcetra.
  • twin peaks and the x-files!!! shows i watched vhs tape bootlegs of at far too young of an age.  these are also pretty obvious.
  • some real-ass crimes that took place in maryland and virginia in the 20th century. i won’t elaborate which ones because i think it’s a fun guessing game.
  • abc’s lost. obvi obvi obvi.
  • the good place on nbc and the adventure zone on maxfun are what made me want to write this For Real, and i feel as if the influences from both of them are pretty clear too?
  • but a lot of it is influenced by my childhood! i’m an only child and both of my parents work, so i was alone a lot. i grew up in the woods on a mountain, and ghost hunting and bigfoot spotting and desperately grasping to see even the closest thing to a ufo in the middle of the night laying down on the hill. seeing a mist on the gravel road and listening to your neighbor with his weirdass bird on his shoulder tell you about the witch that used to live on the road who’s still there every evening, in the mist.
