Ok but that scene of Jaime leaving King’s Landing was literally beautiful, not just because we’ve been waiting for it for so long, but because the music, the scenery, Nikolaj’s acting, the snow, the way he covered the gold hand (the Lannister gold. He is now just Ser Jaime. It doesn’t matter he is a Lannister.)
We’re always trying to outdo ourselves, trying to do better, trying to write better songs. I think we want to inspire other people as well, so that’s what we’ll try to do through future songs. —Joshua William Dun
I….I finally did it after a along ass time scrapping scenes
The lyric comic is based on a comment in the music video which was this: “This version sounds like she’s mourning the potential.”
The idea began from that, where a different color on your skin represents the love and affection you have for the person. If you don’t see your color on them, then your love is unrequited.
There is some elements of my GTA 5 AU in this comic hence the guns and stuff. Also fun fact: Wildcat’s convo with Vanoss hints to my Minicat comic that I made before. Wildcat knows what Vanoss is going through and he didn’t want his friend to suffer the same heartbreak like he did.
Motorcity is a cartoon that was running on Disney XD for a while, before Disney mis-managed the crap out of it, then cancelled it and sat on the rights and didn’t do anything with them, like a bunch of jerks. It’s available on iTunes, and it’s also on kimcartoon (altho there’s an audio error in those. I’m thinking about uploading my corrected copies somewhere so people can get them?? stay tuned)
ANYWAY. In the Far Future, a guy called Abraham Kane (AKA Mark Hamill AKA Luke Skywalker AKA The Joker) decided he didn’t like Detroit and he wanted a new city there instead. So he built his new city over top of Detroit, called it Detroit Deluxe. Deluxe is run by Kane Co. which is run by Abraham Kane.
(((^^^ The difference between a villain and a supervillain??? PRESENTATION.)))
So now that the whole stupid “human rights” thing is out of the way upstairs, his only remaining problem is the people who would rather live under the city, in old Detroit AKA “Motorcity”. Kane’s like “well, time to destroy this dump and build More Deluxe! :)” and Motorcity is like “hey fuck u we literally live here” and Kane’s like “I don’t know I can’t read all of a sudden”.
Our main characters have chosen to combat his drones, nano-viruses and private army with COLORFUL AND ECLECTIC CARS. Our main is an ex-commander from the aforementioned private army, his name is Mike Chilton and I love him. He’s good at basically everything, and you would think that would make him obnoxious but actually he’s a reckless, adorable puppy-dog mom friend who likes helping and driving too fast and diving off buildings and believing in people. He’s also canonically mixed-race, so that’s kinda neat.
He’s a Good Boy.
(And yes, the people who did the character design were also involved in Gorillaz, personally I like the aesthetic of Motorcity way better but they are similar in a lot of places)
it got cancelled, so there are only 12 episodes. And it does take an episode or two for it to get its feet under it.
YMMV, but I would say the first episode I really really liked was episode 5. (And not just b/c the Duke of Detroit is a fukkin gift, holy crap)
not enough ladies, and also they fall back on that thing that’s like “nerdy guy likes the Cute Girl, doesn’t take a hint” and it’s really annoying tbh. Both characters involved deserved better.
Rule of Cool. This show makes 0 sense sometimes, you gotta lean into that to enjoy it tbh. It is a silly, silly show (until the finale, then it fukkin destroys me every time)
Gorgeous, colorful backgrounds and character designs, super-unique style, #aesthetic for days.
a really fun, varied cast.
VILLAINS, the villains are so good. Mark Hamill’s villain voice-acting is second to none. A bizarrely flamboyant rock-star mob boss played by the lead singer of Twisted Sister, who is the embodiment of Chaotic Evil. A disillusioned eco-terrorist with fascinating bio-weapons and a ruthless/single-minded obsession with doing the same thing to Deluxe that Kane wants to do to Motorcity.
If you don’t mind some silliness/Rule of Cool, the episode plots are fun and I enjoy them. :)
Mike’s best friend is really anxious and scared of a lot of stuff and they’re adorably comfortable with each other and they have special nicknames for each other I’m sorry I have a lot of feelings about these nerds. (can u tell what splickedy’s ship is lol)
There’s a lot of room for character interpretation and backstory and stuff, and a lot of implied worldbuilding that’s super fun to build on.
the creators are/were really cool with fandom, altho they’re busy with other shows now. (the head writer retweeted one of my videos!! :D :D :D I’m still super jazzed)
in conclusion it’s cute I love it and I love the characters.
I’m just struck by how soft this episode was. It was horrible and sickening, like a punch to the stomach, but it gentle in its horror. I was trying to ready myself for fights and conflict, but instead we got a quiet, restrained tragedy of inevitability. There didn’t need to be screaming matches or big gestures. Lup didn’t need to die on screen. She just disappeared. Lucretia didn’t turn away from her family in a fury, she did it in a slow, agonizing heartache of absolute certainty. Merle didn’t blow up from the trauma, Magnus didn’t snap, no one did. They just disintegrated under the pressure until it became too much. And they all loved each other so much even as they fell to pieces.
It wasn’t a finale, because the finale is yet to come. They didn’t go out with a bang because they’re all still kicking. It was just… sad.
I really should have trusted this family of players to be able to play a family in turmoil with such grace. There doesn’t need to be fireworks for you to know things are bad. There just needs to be a measure of dramatic irony and a slow litany of bloodshed against a sweet domestic backdrop, tearing away at everyone until they’re tearing themselves to pieces.
Kudos again to Griffin for giving us all this conflict, all this uncertainty, all these Bad Wrong Terrible Choices in a way that felt so real and slow and peaceful. Lup and Barry versus Lucretia’s equally devastating but still attractive plans, the desperation of the Voidfish, the extended built up trauma of living a life on the very edge of reality for a century and having no way to readjust to the real world. It was all terrible but the crew of the Starblaster are too far into this to really turn on each other. They tried so hard to keep it together, and that’s worse than any big dramatic fight ever could be.
