Hello, so this might be a dumb question (and sorry for my bad english) but do you think it's a bad idea to add some fanart into my portfolio for when I apply for art college? It's some of my best artwork and it's not nsfw or even shippy so I don't know, what's your opinion, can I use it?

If the school’s requirements doesn’t say you CAN’T include fanart, then it might be okay? I know I’ve heard that generally professors don’t want to see fanart, but in contrast, I went to the graduate showcase of my animation program last week, and there was a ton on fanart in their portfolios.. so I’m not really sure what the unspoken rules are. If it showcases your best work, and the portfolio requirements don’t say to NOT include it, then go ahead!

A little look back in history. I’m not sure of the exact years but from around 2005-2006, MTV ran an original, short-form programming entitled the “10 Spot Drop”. The program was meant to promote up and coming artists and would air during the commercial breaks of the the network’s most popular prime-time shows, most which aired at 10pm (hence the name “10 Spot Drop”). The clips, ranging from 9-11seconds in length, would feature original visuals and showcase track off the artist/band’s most recent album. Often, an would be showcased on the programs during or around the time of its release.

After browsing around on Youtube a bit, I realized Gorillaz had been featured on this program as part of the promotion for Demon Days. This video is comprised of all the short clips that were made for the album. I wasn’t able to find an HQ clip (which is too bad because I would have liked to make a photoset) but I thought it was pretty neat, and the clips range from creative to funny (imo..like, there’s something subtly hilarious about a cut and pasted version of 2D flying around in airplane idk). Anyhow, it’s too bad I never got to see this air on TV.

Rylan danced and danced for hours upon hours everyday to get a spot in the school’s showcase. Rylan had to practice and practice or else that rotten musician Mateo would get the spot before him. He vowed everything that the dance program would have more people in the showcase than the music program. He sighed as the music turned off and he grabbed his towel. 

Rylan wiped his face and sipped at his water bottle. He grimaced as he saw the infuriating musician sitting at the door waiting to get in. He grabbed his phone and walked out of the practice room. “The rooms all yours Matthew. Not like you are going to get the showcase anyway.”

THERE’S ALREADY BEEN SAID ABOUT THIS EPISODE, BUT I JUST WANT TO MAKE A COMMENTARY ABOUT THE ACTUAL SKATING PROGRAMS AND THE AMAZINGNESS OF IT.

HERE IS THE THING THAT I LOVE ABOUT YURI ON ICE:

EVERYTIME A WINNING PROGRAM IS FINISHED. I KNEW I JUST SAW A GOLD MEDAL PERFORMANCE.

No, seriously.

It was something that I noticed when I first watched Phichit’s FS Program (Terra Incognita). But it was only clearly obvious when I watched JJ’s program (boy do i hate that dude but he can skate) and I knew it was better than Yuri’s. In the same way, I knew Yuri’s was better than Yurio’s before the scores were announced.

The thing with sports is that it would have been incredibly easy to just get these skaters to do more and more impossible jumps to showcase why they are getting better and better. It can be like Prince of Tennis until these skaters aren’t even doing actual humane moves.

But figure skating isn’t like most sports. Figure skating’s major component comes from presentation and boy does this series knows that!

The thing is Yuri on Ice is very good at subtly using better editing, dialogues within a person’s mindset, and better animation quality to showcase how a program is going.

It’s how the show subtly telling us Phichit is winning over Chris’s more technically impressive performance. It’s how the show subtly slowly improves Yuri’s Eros performance tidbit by tidbit – it wasn’t just fanservice.

IT’S HOW DESPITE MY EXTREME WANT TO PUNCH JJ’S FACE, I KNEW HE WAS GOING TO BLOW YURI’S EROS PERFORMANCE OUT OF THE WATER.

And that’s amazing, because behind the series is clearly a group of animators that know how to really show instead of tell. It is probably why this show has been such a treat in all angles – it is because these people really think about how every single subtle details can play into the perception of a scene.

I JUST HAVE A LOT OF FEELS. AS A FIGURE SKATING FANS, I CAN’T ASK FOR A BETTER ANIME TO REPRESENT THE SPORTS.

anonymous asked:

If VM decided to take an old program and turn it into a show piece which would you like to see?

Umbrella’s or Valse Trieste, definitely. Maybe more so Umbrella’s i really love that program.

This is a really interesting question and something i’ve personally thought about a lot because there was something so special about them back then before they won the Olympics. They weren’t as trained as they are now, they were naive in a lot of ways to but even more then that they didn’t have an ounce of the pressure on them like they do now.

And I think both those programs showcased that -  showcased their love for skating. There was something young and lovely about these programs. And I’d love to see them perform them again. 

Presenting the third annual all-comics issue of Lumpen magazine, including comic work by groundbreaking local and international artists. This issue has a loose theme of “Radio” which correlates to the launch 105.5 WLPN, which is a brand new non-commercial radio station based out of Bridgeport that will showcase underground and innovative programming and feature distinctly curated music from a variety of genres as well as cultural commentary, not unlike the variety of comics and artists in Lumpen magazine.

Copies of the magazine and refreshments will be available at the opening.

“We all started working together on Grease in September 2014,” when the Lin-Manuel Miranda musical about Founding Father Alexander Hamilton was in rehearsal. “I would press pause and talk about the Revolutionary War and then pause again for the dawn of the ’60s. The idea was about how to access the celebratory spirit of Grease — how to own and embrace the fact that we’re doing it live, this show about the first time you fall in love, have freedom.”

Kail hopes the trend for live presentations will extend to non-musicals as well. That’s of course where much of Golden Era TV got golden — the live broadcasts on Playhouse 90 and other programs that showcased the country’s emerging talents.


In the meantime, Kail himself is quickly returning to just such a project, staging Sarah Burgess’ new play Dry Powder at the Public Theater with a cast including Claire Danes, Hank Azaria and John Krasinski. “It’s a new and thrilling play by a writer to be reckoned with,” he said. Just the sort of thing success lets you dive in to.

3/6 Dance Teams competing at US Championships 2017

Kaitlin Hawayek and Jean-Luc Baker

Blues/Hip Hop SD: Feelin Good/How I Feel

FD: Liebestraum

ISU PB: 177.36/70.12/107.24

After facing a setback last season in results, Kaitlin and Jean-Luc have had a fabulous season. Both of their programs have been well received and they earned high new personal bests at their last Challenger event. Of great significance for future results, however, is their high score for the FD at the NHK Trophy where they scored well over 100 for the first time. Their two programs showcase different sides of their personalities and their beautiful skating skills. They will be looking to crack the top three here, but they’ll need to have the skates of their lives.

Holy shit i get it now,the wide picture of boondocks isn't that black people do stupid shit too it's that they are in fact people and there are good and bad,just like in every country/ethnicity/whatever there are good people,bad people and all that stuff,i finaly see...loved the episode with the family coming to robert's house,the one with the hurricane katrina it really reminded me of how much i hate family reunions haha

You got it.

The Boondocks, IMO is one of the bright lights in TV animation. It doesn’t air during the primetime (Family Guy, South Park) block because it would be censored to death by conservative ratings/standards & practices. It not only is brilliant in it’s writing and concept, but IMO, it looks better than 90% of primetime american, 2d animated TV production on air not just now, but in the last 7 years.

It is a program that showcases an example of the very best of what American television animation is and can continue to be on a writing & artistic scale. Although I have moved on to other, exciting things (Black Dynamite), I am glad to have been a core part of it’s inception (Seasons 1&2) and I am elated that it’s returning in a few weeks for a glorious 4th season. American TV needs shows like The Boondocks.

Thanks for watching and Happy New Year!
