Your childhood was bitter to say the least. Your father was there, but also wasn’t. He lived in the same house as you, yet he only saw you once a day for a short time if you were lucky, and all that time consisted of was looking what you were doing to make sure you were not causing trouble, messing your hair to show some sort of affection, and then leaving.

Hey what’s up everyone? I know seeing this on your dash might alarm you, but you know what I don’t care anymore! I’ve had a problem with this every since her redemption arc began in Log Date 8 6 7 5 3 09 whatever! And I’m sick of it literally being shoved in our face and NO ONE POINTING IT OUT

I feel like there's probably a popular saying at Elsewhere University along the lines of "it's not drinking alone if you leave some shots out for the Fair Folk"

HAHAHA ‘so i’m on one side of the door with my beer, and then there’s the salt line, and something is on the other side gong to town on the whipped cream vodka I left out, and that’s almost like having friends who don’t have “essays to do, come on Jerry, it’s Tuesday” ‘

  • Joker: The stars are beautiful tonight
  • Harley: Yeah
  • Joker: You know what else is beautiful?
  • Harley: ...What?

“My goal became to do what Pen Ward had done for me and create a home in which my team could express themselves, and then keep that up and really listen to what everyone wanted to do with a platform like this and have it really come together as a group. So I wanted to make sure, I set forth really quick, once I found out this was happening, to redesign the characters to make them a lot simpler so that when they went into the hands of my team they could look wildly different when everyone drew them, they didn’t have to draw like me, they should draw like them, on top of these- I was looking a lot at early Nintendo 64 and George Pal Puppetoons these just very basic shapes, I wanted them to have dimension but then I wanted everyone to be able to push and pull these characters where it’s like, ‘well as long as Pearl has that nose you’ll always know it’s her.’ As long as you have these- [Interruption by Alex talking about pilot pearls nose] Yeah everyone needed markers so that whenever you pushed or pulled them, they would still look like them. And I wanted to have them have room to be as cartoony as Ian Jones-Quartey would want to draw them but also glamourous and lovely and within the same episode, so they should be able to have that range. If I were doing something completely by myself it probably wouldn’t look anything like- well now it would ‘cause I’ve been drawing this for a while, but I also draw it different than other people.” – Rebecca Sugar

(28:30-30:45) (Link for Source - already at the part of the video where the quote is from an everything) (The whole panel video is great and I would recommend watching the whole thing anyway)

I was watching this video and this part really got my attention, because of all the “off-model” SU critical stuff going around nowadays and with Room for Ruby just airing and plenty of new complaints about Peri, I thought that now would be a good time to make this post. The variation in style isn’t the boarders being lazy or ignoring the model sheets, it’s something that Rebecca has wanted and encouraged from the very start of the show! And what Rebecca says is she wants the boarders to be able to draw the characters in their own style every time, and that the styles can change drastically even within the same episode. She goes as far to say that as long as Pearl has her distinctive nose and as long people can tell that it’s Pearl, that’s fine. She wants and encourages this kind of self-expression in her show so her team can have the same freedom she had while working on Adventure Time. So next time you want to complain that Peridot is too short in this ep, or that someone’s hair is too big, (I do admit that Barnmates was a bit… much. But I still don’t see it as wrong) remember that those are things Rebecca has wanted and encouraged since the beginning of SU.

Book review: Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman

He has sipped the mead of poetry, conversed with Mimir, and cavorted with norns. There are no other rational explanations, because otherwise Neil Gaiman might actually - secretly - be a god himself, and I can only suspend my disbelief so far.

It isn’t difficult to argue that Norse myth is easy to present as a continuous story. Much of that reputation is the fault of Snorri Sturluson, the Icelandic poet and politician, who committed a selection of stories (known as sagas) to paper and codified what we now collectively refer to as the Nordic mythos. Retellings of these sagas are rare - you’re more likely to find translations of Sturluson’s work - and it is for that reason that this book is so special.

Gaiman brings his wit and strong character writing, as well as his unashamed love of the mysterious, to an enormously entertaining retelling of his favourite mythological universe. I should mention now: this mythos happens to by my favourite, too - so I’m perhaps, maybe, possibly 100% biased in favour of this book from the very beginning. Speaking of the beginning, that’s precisely where we start: a vibrant, expansive and imagery-rich opening sequence covering the life and death of the giant Ymir and the formation of the nine worlds.

From such lofty heights of literary prose one would, probably, if they were a pessimist, suspect that the writing would necessarily take a quality dip as more characters and events are introduced to the story. I am pleased to report that this is not the case - pleased because this has happened, previously, with other works on the same topic. Grand prose has a habit of giving way to the rote. Gaiman manages to strike the perfect balance between intellectual interest and joyous storytelling. His fiction background, naturally, has helped with this task enormously. 

Best of all are the characterisations of the gods themselves. Thor is a bounty of hard-headed brashness and implacable optimism…when he has Mjollnir, anyway. Odin is a wise and steadfast figure, if perhaps prone to his own brand of trickery. Freya is an unashamed feminist, constantly berating the Aesir for their unthinking folly. Loki is a proud and egotistical problem-solver with delusions of grandeur. Each character, be they god or elf or dwarf or giant (or eagle or wolf or snake) are presented with unique character traits and mannerisms. And to top it off, these gods do not speak in thees and thous: instead, Gaiman treats the gods as if they were real people with extraordinary abilities and responsibilities, and they speak accordingly.

Gaiman collects the best known stories and a few lesser, harder to research myths, and presents them as one cohesive story with an ease that Sturluson couldn’t possibly have dreamed of, and which few academics have replicated. From the beginning to the Ragnarok, the reader is completely transported.

@neil-gaiman has given the world an incredible gift, and we are not worthy.

Should I buy this book? Yes, a thousand times yes.
What do you rate it? 5/5 stars.
Favourite part? Every single time Freya snaps at Loki.
