I think family guy is really ugly, like it is styalized but its just ugly. Like they dont put any thought into colors or backgrounds or anything. Its the most generic of cartoon style and thats why there are so many clones now of it.
Art anon here. One more thing, i went from watching futurama to seeing a clip of family guy and i actually got angry at how lazy and formulaic their camera angles and backgrounds are.
it’s so true..
that’s actually part of why i don’t consider south park on the same level as family guy- if nothing else, they’re stylized an ENTIRELY different and unique way. the paper cut-out appearance is something that everyone can pretty uniformly identify as south park, while… if you take certain characters and draw them in family guy style, it’s… still difficult to tell what style you’re using.
like, i’ve seen a bunch of those “art style challenges” around, and i’ve noticed quite frequently that if you don’t use a pretty generic face while working with the family guy style (the main differences like… chin type, hair type, and appearance of lips), it looks Wrong and unfitting for the series.
like… did you see the episode where peter griffin meets homer simpson? they swap cartoon styles for a bit and it’s like..
tbh if i didn’t know the context to this picture i’d be hella confused who these mfers are. (and that’s kind of a commentary towards simpsons, too, but you can at least immediately tell one of the characters is IN simpsons style, while… the family guy style is very… ???? ? is that even a style?)
THOUGH i’m somewhat happy of the clones- there’s a in-episode joke that bob’s burgers is a simpsons/family guy clone, and i’m pretty glad that’s a show.
Holy shit??? This is happening?? Oh my god?? I cannot believe this.
I don’t understand people who can write an eloquent bias list post because I’m just screaming as I write this. Thank you everyone who gave me and my Yugi a chance, ‘cause without you this wouldn’t have happened. I still honestly do not know what I’m doing. I’m still just going through the motions, making ideas as I go along. I’m so happy yall like it just [smooches all your faces]
Also hope that tumblr glitch got fixed cause this is going under a read more LEGGO!!!
Imaginative, quick and creative INTJs are intellectually curious who can grasp complex problems and data, analyse them quickly and come up with solutions. They are the strategic problem solvers preferring the big picture to the mundane and set high standards for themselves and others. Getting close to the INTJ will take some time, and they may not always involve others in the decision-making process. This can make them seem slightly detached, but it is simply that the processing which takes place, (and a great deal of processing takes place), goes on inside their heads and this can make others feel a little left out.
Peter Griffin ESFP [The Entertainer]
The ESFP is interested in people and experiences and their dislike of rules and routine, are justified by their view that their reason for existing is to bring harmony, sympathy and support to peoples’ lives saying ‘I just had to do something to help.’ The keywords here are 'do’ and 'help;’ caring and practical in equal measure. The ESFP has an ability to make others feel so special. Down to earth and practical, ESFPs live in the here and now preferring to take life as it comes with the optimistic view that it’s bound to be good, (and if it isn’t then there’s always next time!).
Lois Griffin ESFJ [The Supporter]
Organised, caring and driven by duty the ESFJ loves to contribute and remain constantly valued, productive, busy and liked. The ESFJ has an action-orientation that they will channel into people, helping and finding practical solutions to people issues and they’ll work hard at making this happen as they are naturally oriented to the needs of those around them. Whilst the ESFJ wants everyone to feel valued, they will also want to feel part of the group themselves - they need to feel included. If someone is hurting, the ESFJ will be the first to respond.
Brian Griffin INTP [The Engineer]
The INTP is intellectually curious and enjoys the more complex and theoretical problems, often for their own sake. Practical application has little interest for them, preferring to identify the solutions and then leave someone else to plan the work. They do however like things done properly and have very high standards. The routine, the detail bores them rigid and they will put off completing tasks, especially those that they see as unnecessary, preferring to 'blitz’ them nearer the deadline. For the INTP follow-through does not come naturally, and completion will be via huge bursts of energy at the last minute but it will be done.
Meg Griffin INFP [The Dreamer]
To the INFP life is a long quest for meaning and harmony and their personal values are so important to them. This means that it is essential to the INFP that their beliefs and their actions are totally in sync at all times. An INFP is unlikely to take any action which they don’t believe in their heart is right. Yet there is a crusading side to the INFP that would surprise even those who knew the person well. When a personal value, or belief is trodden on, then the INFP can become uncharacteristically outspoken but their values are usually so well hidden that the other person may not realise they have done so.
Glen Quagmire ESTP [The Adventurer]
The ESTP is constantly looking for the 'next big thing,’ and immersing themselves in social activities with gusto. The imaginative, reflective life is not for them, preferring to jump in and see what happens. Supreme optimists, ESTPs will work long and hard on activities which interest them but can switch tack entirely once they begin to lose this interest. The ESTP does not enjoy the constraints of deadlines, schedules or end-dates so if an ESTP does exactly what you asked them, it is only because they wanted to in the first place. ESTPs love to be at centre stage, demonstrating feats of wonder and daring.
Chris Griffin ISFP [The Artist]
Focusing on the here and now, the ISFP will live life to the full, cherishing the present moment, and finding real pleasure in the more sensory and practical activities such as painting or handicrafts. They need an inner balance, a kind of karma for their lives and this means keeping things as uncomplicated as possible. Planning and control are not for the ISFP, they much prefer to stay in the background doing the things they like, keeping a balance, which includes choosing to remain, happily disorganised. Quiet supporters, rarely will an ISFP be the leader, preferring to remain behind the scenes, observing, understanding, but saying very little.
Cleveland Brown ISFJ [The Defender]
ISFJs are the people-centric doers, using their considerable organisational ability to make sure people are taken care of and protected. They are extremely conscientious, hardworking, loyal and dedicated, to people, organisations, groups. Once they are allied to the cause they take their roles very seriously. They have incredibly clear and precise memories and are scarily accurate with facts, figures, names, faces - oh and any person who has slighted them! The ISFJ gathers facts and data and are painstakingly accurate with incredible attention to detail, and extremely methodical in their approach.
Joe Swanson ISTJ [The Inspector]
Serious-minded, individualistic and thorough, the ISTJs like to plan, schedule and drive through to completion, in a logical linear sequence. Any deviation from the plan would be questioned and may take some convincing of its merits. The ISTJ is essentially the engine room, the behind-the-scenes worker making it happen. Concentration, willpower and persistence epitomises the ISTJ approach to work and to life and they will begin at the beginning and end at the end. Spontaneity and flexibility are less important to the ISTJ. Conservative and risk-averse ISTJs excel when it needs a steady hand and they are unlikely to EVER drop the ball.
Know what? I can understand why people would be disappointed, but this finale was the shit. I can say that this was the cap off/cap back on type of episode, where the insanity of Rick Sanchez’s style of tackling life head on can only go so far. Morty knew this, Beth knew this (whether she’s actually a clone or not), and Summer honestly can go either way. Point is, while all was good in the end, Rick acknowledges that he can only elevate things for so long without anything or anybody to take a step back. In comes Jerry, the only real force capable of knocking Rick off his hierarchical position of what’s right. And as such, that while things won’t be the same entirely, the show can still provide the outstanding and outlandish adventures while trying to see where the limit of Rick’s godlike stance in things can stand and break.
Also, Rick vs. The President reminded me of Peter and the Chicken from Family Guy, so that’s a +.
Derek: You knew your mother didn't approve of your boyfriend Derek, but you were getting totally fed up with her attitude towards him or whenever you even brought up his name. Derek had just come over to take you out on a special date for the first time in a while and your mother nearly blew up. He was waiting in the living room while you and your mom were yelling at each other back and forth in the kitchen.
“You’re not going out with him and that’s final!” Your mother yelled at you.
“You can’t tell me who and who not to date!” You threw your arms in the air.
“He’s no good for you! He’s just going to use you and then leave you!” Your mother narrowed her eyes at you.
“You obviously don’t know Derek and you should give him a chance! He loves me, and I love him, and there’s nothing you can ever do to change my mind about it. He protects me, he treats me like a princess, and I know he would never hurt me.” You huff.
“News flash sweetheart, once he gets in your pants, he’s gonna be gone in a second. So when he leaves you and you’re heart broken, don’t come crawling back to me.” Your mom crossed her arms as she glared at you.
“Whatever you say. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to dinner with my boyfriend. And after, I plan on having some steamy hot sex with him and staying the night at his place, don’t wait up.” You smirk as your mother scoffed, eyeing you as you walked into the living room.
You grab Derek’s hand, pulling him out of the house, closing the door behind you two. You intertwine your fingers as he stops by his car, turning to face you.
“You didn't have to do that you know, defend me and all. I didn't want you to have a fight with your mother about us going out, we could have rescheduled.” Derek spoke as he wrapped his arms around your waist.
“Don’t be silly, you always defend me. Plus, why would I let anyone put down my amazing boyfriend?” You smile as you place your hands on his broad shoulders.
“I love you so much Y/N.”
“And I love you.” You peck him on the lips. “Now how about that date?”
Stiles: When you had moved to Beacon Hills, you and Aiden immediately became best friends. With his cockiness and your extreme sarcasm, you both just clicked. What you hadn't expected however, was to fall in love with the one and only, clumsy and dorky Stiles Stilinski. Of course you though he was breathtaking, you just didn't possess the courage to tell him, so you kept it a secret, even from your best friend.
“Y/N!” Aiden called as you walked into English.
Stiles, Scott, Lydia, Isaac, and Allison all had this class as well. All their eyes turned to you as Aiden walked over you.
“Looking good.” He smiled, arms wide open for a hug.
“Can’t say the same for you pretty boy.” You smirked as you squeezed him tight.
You and Aiden took your usual seats in the back together, you behind Scott and Aiden behind Stiles. You bit your lip as you moved a strand of your hair out of your face. Before you could register the situation, Aiden had grabbed a fist full of Stiles t-shirt, pinning him to the wall.
“Aiden!” You shouted, trying to pull him off of Stiles.
“Do you wanna say that again Stiles?” Aiden growled.
“Aiden let him go.” Scott demanded.
“What the hell’s gotten into you Aiden?” You asked him as you pulled him by his shoulders.
“Apparently Stilinski here thinks it’s ok to talk about kissing your lips.” Aiden huffed.
“That’s all? Drama queen much! Leave the cutie alone Aiden, or I’m gonna shove my boot up your wolf ass.” You whisper yelled the last part.
Aiden let out a low growl before letting go of Stiles’s shirt, taking a step away from him.
“Good boy, now go sit the hell down and we’ll discuss your PMS later.” You rolled your eyes as he took a seat at his desk as well as Scott and Isaac had.
“You ok Stiles?” You ask the boy as you straighten out the fabric of his shirt.
“Uh y-yea. T-thanks.” His cheeks flush a light pink.
“If it makes you feel even better, I like to think about kissing those lips of your too.” You whisper into his ear before turning to sit back in your seat.
Isaac: You had been waiting in Derek’s loft while Derek trained with your boyfriend Isaac. They have been non stop fighting each other, Derek basically throwing your boyfriend around like a rag doll. You’ll never understand why Isaac actually enjoys training sessions, but you don’t mind seeing him in action so you’re not complaining.
“Try harder! You’re too weak!” Derek yelled at his beta.
“What do you think I’m doing?” Isaac snapped.
“You’re getting soft.” Derek growled. “I won’t have a weak beta in my pack.”
“Give him a break Derek.” You roll your eyes as you walk over to them.
“Stay out of this Y/N. This is between me and my beta.” Derek narrowed his eyes at you.
“Well when you insult my boyfriend, you insult me.” You cross your arms, standing a few feet away from Derek.
“Y/N, don’t bother.” Isaac spoke from behind you.
“Listen to your boyfriend.” Derek huffed.
“You know what Derek, you act all tough and think everyone’s scared of you. Well reality check, you’re just rude and you don’t scare me. Isaac’s been through a lot recently and you’re not making it any better. So lighten up and give him a break.” You breathe.
Derek is silent for a minute, eyes shifting from you to Isaac and then back to you.
“I see why you like her.” Derek huffed as he turned, walking up the stairs to who knows where.
Scott: Your brother Derek had never approved of you dating anyone, so it was no surprise when he blew up when you told him you were dating Scott.
“Scott, really! I’d rather you be dating Stiles!” Derek growled, throwing his papers to the floor.
“You’re overreacting, it’s just Scott.” You rolled your eyes.
“It’s not just Scott. Why are you so naive Y/N? He’s a true alpha, you’re a beta AND you’re my sister. You can’t date him and that’s final!” He flipped over the table in the middle of the loft.
“I’m not a little girl anymore!”
“What’s with all the high school drama?” Uncle Peter walked into the room, stopping a few feet from us.
“Y/N’s dating Scott.” Derek huffed.
“Scott McCall? Good choice, I approve.” Uncle Peter smirked as Derek let out a snarl.
“Derek, Scott loves me and I love him. He may be an alpha, but I’m a werewolf too, I can take care of myself. Just because you think you’re strong enough to control a pack, don’t think you’re strong enough to handle me. So don’t you dare try to go and hurt Scott, because you’ll be hearing from me. This discussion, is over.” You narrow your eyes at him, walking out of the loft.
“The attraction of that alpha…it’ll make her murderous.” Peter commented as you slammed the metal door.
Peter: You and Stiles have been best friends since you were in diapers, and when you two met Scott, you guys basically became the three musketeers. They’ve always supported your decisions, no matter how ridiculous. However, it came as a huge surprise when they were completely against you dating Peter.
“You guys act like me being with Peter is going to kill me.” You roll your eyes.
“You’re dating a psychotic werewolf! He just might kill you!” Stiles nearly screamed.
“I wouldn’t hurt her, I’m falling in love with her.” Peter butted in, placing an arm around your waist.
“No, not happening.” Scott spoke as he pulled you away from Peter.
“Seriously guys? I thought we were like family.” You shrug Scott’s hand off your shoulder.
“We are family! And as family, we refuse to let you get hurt by him.” Scott spoke sincerely.
“He wouldn’t hurt me and you know it. Don’t you guys know what it’s like to love someone so much you’d do anything for them? Peter’s an amazing man and if you guys can’t give our relationship a chance, then we’re gonna have a problem.” You cross your arms over your chest.
“We will always support your decisions Y/N, but I won’t fully understand what you see in him.” Scott breathed as he pulled you in for a hug.
As soon as he let go, Stiles looked you in the eyes before walking over to you, wrapping his arms around you.
“I don’t approve, but I’ll support it.” Stiles whispered.
“You guys are gonna have to learn to trust me sometime.” Peter announced.
“Don’t expect it anytime soon.” Stiles rolled his eyes.
Sorry if it wasn’t amazing, and I didn’t write one for Aiden, I apologize, just didn’t have anymore ideas. Hope you enjoyed :) <3 xx
The alarm was like a death call. Dear lord was it blaring this morning.
Of course, it had to ring right as Steve had finally got comfortable with his arms wrapped around the love of his life and closed his eyes. He groaned softly and gently pecked the top of Tony’s head before pulling himself out of bed.
“Steve…” Tony whined, reaching out and up for the blond.
“Tony, you know I have to go…” He leaned over and pecked his cheek before continuing to put on his uniform. Each button seemed to be harder and harder to put on from the slight shaking in his hands getting worse and worse as he continues on.
Q: How does it feel to bring this era to a close? Do you think it will be weird taking a break?
A: It feels very bittersweet ending this era because I’ve enjoyed it so much and it’s been so helpful for me, creatively. But in terms of taking a break: no, that doesn’t feel weird at all. I’ve been travelling for a year and a half, so it’s something that I need to do, creatively.
Q: Are you supporting Bernie or Hillary to win the presidential election? xx presuming it won’t be any republican trash
A: I am not supporting anyone in particular, but I feel like, from what I’ve seen so far, you know, Hillary Clinton does have her faults, she’s not perfect, but she’s way better than Donald Trump, who’s literally a cross between Peter Griffin from Family Guy and Ronald McDonald.
Q: Where do you see yourself 15 years from now? Do you want a family?
A: I don’t know where I see myself 15 years from now. I think one of the best things about life is that you have no idea what’s gonna happen, you know, particularly all the wonderful things that could happen to you. I like the element of surprise. In terms of family, you know, that’s a decision that you make when you come to it. So again, I don’t know.
Q: Emotional intelligence vs Intellectual intelligence, which is more important?
A: I love this question. I think emotional intelligence is more important, because it gives you an understanding of why people are the way they are and it’s also something that all of us can improve and develop.
Q: Following Oxford do you plan on speaking at any other unis or colleges? x
A: I don’t plan to at the moment, but I would certainly like to do more talks in the future. I think one element of the Oxford talk that I really loved was the discussion that we had afterwards, that’s something that really interests me. So, you know, if there’s a topic in which I feel like I can share information on, then I would definitely like to do more talks.
Q: Would you ever write a book about your experiences as an artist?
A: I wouldn’t write a book about my experiences as an artist, but I would be interested in writing a book about other topics. Something that I’m really passionate about is practical philosophy and how we can use philosophy and apply it to modern life. So yes.
Q: Why don’t you come to Spain? We really want you 😣😘
A: Spain, I’m so sorry that I didn’t come. I know you are incredibly upset. I would love to have come to Spain, Italy, Russia, Australia, but the fact is that planning a tour is never as simple as just wanting to go to a certain country, it’s incredibly complex and yeah, that’s all I can say.
Q: How do you feel when fans give you letters or tell you you saved their life
A: I feel very honoured and I also don’t take it literally, even though fans may want me to. I feel like when they say “You saved my life”, it’s more saying that I felt a certain way and I know that you did too at a certain point in your life, and then, you know, there’s a feeling of connectedness there, so I get it.
Q: Why does human emotions and psychological nature catch your attention so much?
A: I don’t know why, but it’s how I’m wired, and even as a songwriter what’s really inspired me is the human condition, why we are the way we are. So it’s almost trying to understand something or somebody without judgement and more trying to figure out what makes them tick. So, actually a lot of what I do in my spare time is geared towards that subject.
Q: Do you have anything to say to us people who suffer with anxiety/depression?
A: Yes, I do. I have suffered from both for long periods of time and I think one thing I would say is that I was never diagnosed for anxiety, which I definitely suffered from for close to a decade. I wouldn’t recommend going on medication personally, but I would recommend getting help with counseling, to see what the root of your problem is.
Q: Are you afraid of being old?
A: Absolutely not! I am going to relish it! I feel very strongly about the pros of aging. I really hate that we live in a culture where, you know, if you’re thirty years old and you have a wrinkle on your forehead - which I do have - you have to get Botox. I think it’s a really negative message. It’s not about being beautiful, it’s more about erasing your age, and you never look good after it.
Q: Despite feeling so unhappy for most of your life, what gave you the motivation to turn it around and live life?
A: I wouldn’t say I was unhappy for most of my life, but I had my moments. This question actually reminds me of something I heard on TV a few months ago. It was a guy on the news and he said “I’d always wanted to be happy my whole life, and so I chose to be.” And that just seemed so simple, but it was very profound for me, that you decide to be happy; it doesn’t just happen to you.
Q: Did you ever feel like you had no one like at all, only yourself? How did you get through it?
A: Yes, definitely. Sometimes it’s really hard to find like-minded individuals and that can make people feel lonely. But I think it’s really helpful to remember that the most important relationship you’re gonna have in your life is the one with yourself, and really you are your own best friend, and I think realizing that gave me a lot of strength and a lot of confidence too, actually.
Q: What happened to MarinaMeets?
A: This is a very popular question. I really have loved meeting fans and this time on tour I wanted to create an environment which was not chaotic and sometimes dangerous. So I met ten fans every night, cause I just don’t have the energy to meet more, that’s the truth, but it didn’t last cause it wasn’t an ideal system, but it was something that I wanted to try.
Q: Did you believe in what Justin is saying? Did you considerate that important?
A: Following on from the last question, I guess what I wanna say about this is that it’s never a given to meet an artist after a show and whilst we always recognize how much fans give and sacrifice, our responsibility is putting on an amazing show, that’s what we owe you through you buying a ticket to see us. So when I saw Justin Bieber’s post I totally understood and I think well-being is way more important than a –
Q: When will Neon Nature merch be available online?
A: So I am launching a FROOT Cyber Pop Up Stall next Tuesday. I know there are plenty of people across the globe that couldn’t make the show, I didn’t come to your city, so for the first time ever I’m putting my full range of merchandise online, it’s only gonna be available for seven days and once the stall goes out, it’s out. This is the last chance to buy FROOT gear.
Q: Is there one book you’ve read as an adult that you wish you could share with your younger self?
A: How to Develop Emotional Health, which is a book from a series by the School of Life, and also How To Stay Sane, by Philippa Perry, which is also a School of Life book.
Q: What was the most important thing you learned about life this past year?
A: The most important thing I learned this year was actually about stability and staying in one place. The year before FROOT came out I was in London for a whole year, sleeping in one bed, and I was surprised at how much it affected my mood and stabilized it. And I think going back on tour again I realized that it’s quite hard to stay in a certain frame of mind.
Q: Any parting words for the FROOT era?
A: Parting words, it’s been an absolute dream. I’ve achieved so many things that I’d been trying to for many years and now I’m gonna take a little break to do some different things. I’ve been on the road for seven years, I’ve had an amazing, amazing experience. So this isn’t goodbye for good, it’s just for a short while, but thank you so much.
