one of my favorite scene of them

Fresh Eyes on Zootopia: A Ramble

Today I had some of my coworkers over for a movie night and we watched Zootopia. For me, it was about umpteenth viewing, but for most of them it was the first time.

I absolutely loved watching their reactions to some of my favorite scenes. Everyone lost it at the DMV segment. One of my friends literally dropped to the floor when Clawhauser got embarrassed about calling Judy cute. The bridge scene… well, you know :’)

What I loved most of all was that even my friends who aren’t big into Disney or animation in general really liked the movie. They understood immediately why I had been going on and on about it all week before our planned movie night arrived. The humor, the attention to detail, the emotional and thematic depth, all combine to make Zootopia the masterpiece it is, and everyone seemed to get something great out of it.

For my part, I was thrilled to see good friends bring a fresh set of eyes what has quickly become my favorite movie. Every time I watch Zootopia, I notice a detail I missed my previous times around. Watching it with others, I got to see them bring a few such details to my attention (e.g. - one of my coworkers, a fellow doctor, noticed some brain imaging on the screens at Cliffside, which I never even paid attention to). Even more importantly, everyone’s emotional response to different parts of the movie was different and great to see. Everyone’s backgrounds are different, which made everyone empathize with a different aspect of Nick and Judy’s story, and even allowed them all take something different away from the same scene.

And that’s what a good story does. It shows you something deep and powerful which can speak to everyone in a slightly different way while still keeping the same basic message.

Last off, seeing Zootopia again in this way made me understand exactly why this is the most amazing and welcoming fandom I’ve ever been a part of: Because acceptance and understanding are what the movie is about! So of course this fandom is filled with people who value those qualities! Everyone who loves this movie loves it because (beyond a multitude of other reasons) they recognize and agree with its message, that the world will be a better place if we all try, just try, to understand one another. If we just try to make it better.

So that’s it, that’s my ramble. And a “short” summary of why I love Zootopia and its fandom so much. Thank you all for making this an amazing place to spend some of my free time. I love you all :)

Veronica kind of annoyed me this episode idk :P And though varchie is okay, I can't really find myself shipping them too much cuz of no development

she was very selfish and focused on her self interest in this episode, which was definitely grinding on my nerves. even if i could understand why she was so obsessed. i mean, i’d want to know if my dad (who was being released from prison soon) was a murderer. i was annoyed with varchie at several points, but the only time i was really like WTF! was in the last scene at pop’s. i see food on the table! i’ll give them a free pass with kevin because it’s possible they just got off the phone with him, but they were apparently looking for jughead and then gave up and stopped for a snack. nice, guys. 

i like varchie because veronica seems to be very smitten with him and archie seems to make her happy. v is still one of my favorites, so i want her to be happy. and i do feel like there’s been subtle build up there. they constantly made eyes at each other and were supportive of each other. my thing is that archie was all ready and willing to hop into a relationship with her when LITERALLY the episode before he was moping about his break up with val and wanting to get back together with her. i guess that’s just how archie rolls. hopefully he’s going to hunker down with veronica for real, and the reason all his other romances were short and shallow is because veronica is who he really wanted to/should be with

What’s your favorite thing to draw?

I really like drawing scenes with a great deal of emotional meaning. I don’t do a whole lot of personal work anymore (which is something I’m working on fixing) but I love illustrating things that happened in roleplay or in events. I also love drawing intimate scenes with couples - a tender kiss or one holding the other or something meaningful really makes me happy. I love drawing the characters of other people over my own simply because I often feel that their characters are a great deal more interesting.

I also love drawing elves. I think I’m pretty good at making them look like the supermodel beauties that they are, mostly because I really like symmetrical faces.

What’s your least favorite thing to draw?

Drawing in general is usually quite a stressful thing for me, so honestly, I think the actual process of producing something that I like is my least favorite thing about being an artist. I’m hypercritical of my own work and will throw out a sketch ten times before I’m satisfied with the way something looks. I hate pieces that I’ve finished and never look at them again after I’ve posted them. I’ve felt that my style has stagnated and it’s not appealing. I’m sure every artist has these issues when they really sit down and start thinking about their art, so it seems that the disdain for the process itself is simply universal.

Do you like to challenge yourself? 

Sometimes! I try new things with coloring a lot and some of the pieces I’ve liked the most have been an experiment. I think I could stand to expand my horizons a little more beyond coloring, however - dynamic posing and full bodies and backgrounds is the next thing that I’d like to work on.

ok but one of my favorite scenes of symbolism in the spring day mv is yoongi’s “dirty laundry” aka the pile of clothes he was on. dirty laundry refers to ones secrets they’d rather keep hidden or their personal baggage, and yoongi quite literally had a MOUNTAIN of it (possibly his depression, personal fears, etc), and he was alone at the center of it. but when light was shone on it, all the members joined him, and were even at peace with him on it. bts accepts and loves each other, dirty laundry and all

Tangerine (dir. Sean Baker)

No, I think my favorite scene is the last scene, simply because for a filmmaker, your favorite scenes are always the scenes that are exactly how you envisioned them. We only did one take of that, because it was actually really brave for those two to do that. It was very uncomfortable for them. It was about as close to, like, when we think of a sex scene, because… they’re naked. When the wigs come off, for them, it was really stripping away any privacy whatsoever. (source)

HUMANS IN SPACE

so the humans are space orcs posts where we can just hide emotions from our customer service skill set, why don’t we take that a step further.

What about actors, who literally train for years to act different behaviors for different roles, from good guys to bad guys. One minute the human is kind and gentle, the next he is arrogantly addressing the pirates who invaded, all from his acting days.

Their strict memorization can help them recall lines for any situation. They can cry on cue, motivate their crewmates with a well place monologues, become the life of the party with one liners and comedic sketches.

Hell this can apply to dedicated fans. The ones who try to get in character at cosplays, or memorize entire dialogues from their favorite scenes.

Really I just want someone to write alien fic where a human quotes the wallet scene from pulp fiction and just fucking terrifies them

PERALTIAGO APPRECIATION WEEK | Day 2: Favorite Funny Moments
That’s one of my least favorite roles that women fill on TV shows — the killjoy who tells the goofy fun guy to knock it off. We consciously tried to avoid that dynamic — we had them like each other, treat each other like peers, seek advice from each other, and (maybe most importantly) we made them both screw up a lot, albeit in different ways. Melissa and Andy make it easy, though, by playing their scenes not like “fun-time Charlie and his mean schoolmarm watchdog” but like two real humans who tease each other. - Michael Schur on Amy’s relationship with Jake

“Not only are there no happy endings…There aren’t even any endings.”

Every time I read American Gods by Neil Gaiman, I find more things to adore about this novel. I read it this time while traveling across the United States, and I have to say, something about reading this book in transit just makes sense. It makes even more sense reading it while soaring over America itself, gazing down on fields and hills, a New Jersey import who lives in Chicago, went to LA a week or so ago, and just left Florida. There is something so intensely American about this novel, and it wows me every time. From the smaller mythic chapters telling folk tales and stories of the people who brought their gods to America, to the gods themselves and their characters, this novel always gets me. This was my third time reading this novel, and I’m going to dig deep to highlight new things that I had forgotten, so solid warning: Spoilers ahead.

I will never get over the way that Neil Gaiman melds together the idea of the gods and the land, and gives them both their own power and will. Something that wows me that I often forget about the standalone is now astoundingly diverse it is without being appropriative, and how Gaiman incorporates so many cultures, a diverse range of characters, as well as a huge amount of humor without it becoming problematic. I think this novel could be a guidebook for authors who want to know how to write diverse stories and mythos respectfully. I forgot about so many fantastic characters that Gaiman pours himself into, from Samantha Black Crow to side characters that brim with energy and character themselves, like Whiskey Jack’s son or Bilquis. I also never noticed before the two mentions of Mr. Nancy’s son that point to Anansi Boys. Not to mention the wealth of research and knowledge that goes into the bottomless well of background characters and visions leading up to the battle. 

One thing I gained a new appreciation for in this novel was the character of Shadow. He is big, and not dumb, and I remembered all that, but what I forgot is how nice he is. Shadow’s such a cinnamon roll of a character, and I forget that. He stands up for a waitress and believes in the good of people. At the Lakeside library book sale, he tries to find the book that’s least likely to be purchased, so that he can help the library out by buying it. He performs coin tricks for children. He is obligated to hold Odin’s vigil, but he never questions whether he should also hold Mad Sweeney’s. As Laura speaks with the cutting, too-open words of the already-dead, Shadow still refuses to tell her about her appearance or to not hold her hand, because he doesn’t want to hurt her still. When Shadow picks up bodies with the coroners, he carries them always in his arms. 

The scene between Shadow and Odin before his death is one of my absolute favorites (other favorite scenes include Samantha Black Crow’s protest kiss, the scene in which Shadow thinks snow into being, and Shadow’s long death scene). Odin recites to Shadow what he knows—the charms, in a long list. And it ends with that long scene where Shadow wonders what would have happened if he touched Odin’s hand, and wishes he had. And Odin’s twisting grift of the fiddle is so complicated and well done that even on the third re-read, I find myself forgetting about it until the moment Odin dies, and doubting myself on it until the moment Shadow says it out loud.

@neil-gaiman’s American Gods just gets better every time I read it, and I am cautiously thrilled and excited for the show coming out later this spring.

I know we talked a lot about how foreshadowing that scene in 3x20 was, but for me that possible happy future that Hook was talking about is best represented in the pancakes scene.

This is what I always wanted for them, even more than the big stuff, these little moments of day to day life in which they are “just happy”. And I think this is the reason why this has become one of my favorite scenes on the show. Because it wasn’t only the “almost pancakes”, and the passionate kisses that lasted long just the way I like it, or the way he was approaching behind her, or the way she was so urgently pressing him up against the table. But it was mainly because that moment represented pure happiness in the most simple of ways, and yet the most special.  

Please give us more moments like this one <3

let me help you fall in love with tanaka’s character (i’m gonna cut some parts from the first volume of the manga).

this is tanaka ryunosuke. he appears for the first time in the manga on vol 1 . he’s a second year and as you can see, he’s got that delinquent boy look going on. oh, and you’re gonna see that facial expression a lot, it’s his signature. it’s meant to intimidate people, but, no, just no, it’s hilarious af. 

guys, guys, guys, tanaka is a dork. we love dork characters, right?

he’s so simple minded. he’s just like bokuto. i’m dying.

whether you’ve watched the anime or you’re reading the manga, you probably know that the weird duo knocks off the vice principal wig, leading to daichi kicking them out of the gym. this scene is right before any of that happens. daichi is trying to talk to hinata and kageyama, but they’re just too absorbed in arguing that they do not hear him. tanaka is scolding them because daichi san is talking. he respects the third years a lot and wants the first years to respect them as well. we love respectful characters, right?

and here is the part where i start talking about how good of a senpai (and a person) tanaka is. this guy wakes up at 4 to let those two practice in the gym without daichi knowing (heh). this is obviously not the only time tanaka looks out for his kouhais. there are so many scenes in which you can see tanaka taking care of the kids. my favorite one? it’s probably the one from the OVA. if you still haven’t watched it, go watch it, because if you still think that tanaka’s nothing more than a funny gag, you’ll understand that you’re wrong. so wrong.

he is such a caring person. karasuno, his teammates mean so much to him. when hinata and kageyama don’t pass their exams, they need to re-do it, but in order to practice with the others in tokyo they need a ride. in the OVA you see tanaka asking his sister if she can do this favor for him, at first she tells him no because it’s an at least four hours drive, but then she sees her brother counting his savings. guys, guys, guys, here me out, tanaka’s willing to use his own money for hinata and kageyama. unfortunately he doesn’t have enough, but do you know what he does to provide a ride for them? he kneels in front of his sister and begs her. and he did not tell anyone how hard it was for him to provide a ride for hinata and kageyama. y’know, he deserves being called tanaka senpai by everyone everyday of his life, tanaka is the man

but this, this is probably what i like the most about him. this is just an example, okay? here we have tsukishima, telling them about kageyama’s nickname. tanaka has never liked people talking shit about others. look at his expression, he’s mad. he’s gonna scold tsukishima, but daichi stops him. this happens not a lot, but a shit amount of lots. tanaka is always ready to shut up people who belittle others. he steps up for kageyama, he is always there for hinata, he’s always ready to say “no, don’t say that you’re great” whenever someone is self depricating or he’s ready to fight whenever they talk shit of his friends. he’s such a good character, guys. 

(oh, and have i already told you how strong this person is? when oikawa’s targeting him he puts himself together. all by himself. most players wouldn’t be able to do that, they’d be so down because they’d made a lot of mistakes, but tanaka? not tanaka, bitch. tanaka is stronger than that. tanaka is better than that. tanaka slaps himself and receives that powerful serve.)

tanaka is in my top 5 favorite haikyuu characters and now you kinda know why. i think there’s so much more i need to say, but this post is getting too long. but please, give a little love to tanaka ryunosuke. call him tanaka senpai. he deserves it.

In YOI episode 3 when Yurio is about to start his program and Yuuko is freaking out over his costume, why is Victor shown as if he's in deep thought? Or just why was the clip shown in the first place? I feel like they wouldn't have put it there just because, but I cant figure out what it's significants is..Do you know why?

I love episode 3.

It’s one of my favorites. There are so many interesting character moments to analyze, and this is one of them. 

There are several potential interpretations you could apply to this scene.

Yuri is scowling as he’s warming up to perform “Agape” - which is not Agape-like behavior. Victor could be thinking “Well, I guess he hasn’t tapped into the concept of Agape after all…” 

If you notice earlier in the episode, we see Victor looking at Yuri much the same way - particularly right before he sends him off to the waterfall. Victor is not seeing what he wants in Yuri’s demeanor.

You could also speculate that Victor might see a younger version of himself in Yuri, who is standing there in Victor’s costume from his junior years.

But here’s another theory…

What has been your favorite scene to animate so far? I'm sorry if this has been asked before ^^

I was thinkking about all scenes of the XTra Scene #1, but just for the colouring, because that short doesn’t have so much animation.

So, I think this is one of my favorite ones. Yup, guys, this is from Underverse 0.3 :’3 I feel so proud.
There are also more scenes better than this, but I didn’t started with them yet.

Jordan Vogt-Roberts:

The local Vietnamese that we worked with in the Ninh Binh area were all so amazing and so much fun to work with. The scene the shot with brie is one of my favorite things in the film. Most of the crew went to lunch and I stayed back with Brie and we very freely shot this montage with all the local Vietnamese. It took them hours to go through make up and normally people would be exhausted but their enthusiasm was infectious. Brie and I fed off of their energy. I love what they bring to the film and the stories their faces tell.

guys, kara was worried. she was utterly panicking that she was going to fail and lose alex forever. you can see it all over her face, the i can’t do it, i can’t stop it this time. and alex is just, yes you can. alex is calm, she is the unwavering faith that holds kara upright every single day, and the yes you can when she needs it most. alex was the one in danger, and yet there she was looking her sister in the eye and forcing her to believe in herself, because that’s what alex does. kara knows this, felt it in the moments when she thought she would lose her, and realized she couldn’t survive without it. alex’s you got this sis, is absolutely the voice in supergirl’s head when she thinks she’s down for the count, and she gets up every time.
