If you were forced to describe the hockey season in one word, it would be long. You knew that your husband, Kevin Bieksa, would probably say the opposite, but he wasn’t the one who acted almost as a single mother for three quarters of the year. You loved your kids, more than you ever thought possible, but they were young and full of energy and questions and, without Kevin, you had to be on your game all of the time.
New original 3D animated movie: Ducks. The secret life of ducks when humans aren’t looking.
Whenever ducks fly south in the winter, they’re actually flying to a big city of ducks where they talk and have jobs and have traffic lights with pictures of ducks in them and every billboard and storefront is a bird pun.
A generic duck guy is a young adult who feels inadequate because his dad is a big broker in the bread stock exchange.
He accidentally reveals the secret life of ducks to a human child, and now he must take her south with him to duck city. On the way they get into hijinks and find out about a big duck conspiracy or something.
you know, i had a Great time talked and analyzed the whole Ducktales trailer when it just released by disney with a bunch of Donaldists on tumblr..
i mean, it’s only a 2/3 minutes trailer.. And We’ve literally talked about Every single thing. We found a tons of references, a possible plot,and made a bunch of guesses and headcanons
We’ve talked about ‘What the heck is wrong with Donald and Scrooge relationship’, ‘How Bizzare Louie actually is’, 'Webby as a Huge Donaldist fan’ (etc) which is very fun to talked about.
Just imagine when the show’s finally aired… We got to see out fave characters coming back, going to hear their new voices, new bondings, new characters, new mysteries,References, know more about Scrooge’s pasts, More donald, Siblings stuff, Crazy antics..you got the idea.
1/13/17 @coldsunnyday The ducks aren’t actually green. They’re untrustworthy creatures, and they’re lying about what color they are. Don’t listen to them.
It’s an optical illusion called “structural color.” Their feathers are black. The fluffy side bits of the feathers (barbs) are also black. The little hooks that keep the barbs all lined up (barbules) are also black. There are microscopic little ridges (tubules) on the barbules that are also black. But the tubules are exactly the same size as a wavelength of green light, so instead of absorbing green light the way a black object should, they reflect it and the ducks look green.
If you put one of the ducks under a good enough microscope, you’d see that no individual part of it was actually green in any way.
Avian biology generally can’t produce blue or green pigments. Birds that look blue or green are lying about it. Don’t trust them.
Except for turacos. They’re actually green, and very pleased with themselves about it. Look at this guy, here’s a bird you can trust:
Inspired on a real location outside Dobutsuen-mae subway station in Osaka. A place where there used to be a small kiosk called “Ahiru no Shinbun-ya san” (アヒルの新聞屋さん, literally “Mrs. Duck Newspaper Shop”) and whose owner kept a family of ducks next to it. A special place that for years was part of the neighborhood and that for unknown reasons was closed in 2015.
History aside, this was a truly challenging piece, not only for all the details, but I wanted to give it a nostalgic feeling so I tried to get the right colors of a cloudy day just when the first raindrops starts falling. I hope you like it.
meet me in the hallway:
wandering the streets at two am on a thursday morning. rain hitting against the windows. half remembered dreams. laying in bed with your headphones on.
sign of the times:
the last warm day of the year. too hot coffee. sitting outside of a party listening to the muffled music playing coming through the door.
the hottest day of the year. dive bars. the feeling of being in the middle of a crowd at a concert with everyone singing along. a cold beer.
growing up. sitting on the roof of your house and crying. pretending to not notice an ex when you walk by them on the street. missing someone.
driving with the windows down on the first day of summer. seeing your loved ones for the first time in a long time. iced tea. petting your dog.
the build up right before you kiss someone you're into. walking down a city street. that sweet spot when you're drinking and you feel like you can fly.
heartbeat going a little too fast. being on a roller coaster right before the drop. going to a twenty-four hour diner with your friends and laughing too loud.
ever since new york:
watching the sunset. saying goodbye. the moment in between being asleep and being wide awake after a good night's sleep. sitting in your friend's backyard staring at the stars.
from the dining table:
sitting on the floor with your knees against your chest. staring at your cell phone and waiting for a text. the day you realize all the holiday lights have been taken down. realizing that this chapter in your life is over.
