ted thinking

  • Them: What do you think about Ted sneaking into Robin's apartment to have an orchestra playing for her?
  • Me Internally: That was a fucking creeper move. Literally what the fuck. Dude if you don't have a key, you DON'T HAVE PERMISSION TO ENTER THAT SPACE UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED. If I was Robin, I would fear for my safety and security because apparently any random guy can just break in. The orchestra is not the point here. If he really wanted to serenade her or whatever so badly, he could have done it a less stalkerish way. Yeah, that veterinarian was right. NO ONE does that. No one being people who aren't creeps and stalkers. Miss me with that shit. I like romantic, cheesy stuff, but I'm not naive and deluded.
  • Me Externally: I don't really remember that scene, excuse for a sec, I need to go talk to my friend Kayla.
atoney15 replied to your post: What are your thoughts on the “evil stare” Ted…

The exact moment is around the 37:15 mark of the full version of the interview on Youtube. Your explanation makes more sense to me. I think a lot of the people pausing at the “evil stare” are conspiracy nuts. However, Ted’s cold, glaring eyes don’t help because it does look scary out of context. I’m always amazed by how his eyes changed like that. In this interview, they are warm and friendly in the beginning then they appear harsh and frightening in that one moment.

Thanks! Just watched it and I actually had a good laugh, it’s so blatant! I don’t see it as an “evil stare” at all but people see what they want to see, just like Dobson believed what he wanted to believe. I personally have a hard believing that he could sat down and watch the interview and still think Ted was sincere during the full thing….

Okuyasu & Josuke’s Great Bizarre Adventure!!!

I’ve been meaning to draw Josuke and Oku as Bill & Ted for a while; dunno if anyone’s done it already ??? This will be up on Redbubble in a few moments. (I’m terrible, I have print designs to finish and end up drawing new ones instead OOPS)

Ted the Animator: “I think you might have skipped some between frames, seeing as he does this a couple times.”

Carl the Animator: “Nah, he’s just on waaaaay too much caffeine.”

Ted the Animator: “…ok, y’know what, that’s fair.”

“Well, *that* was a rough deadline.”

Ted the Animator: “We got the scene done, though. Goodness, I need sleep.”

Carl the Animator: “…I barely remember what the script even said after all that, but out of context, Scooby wearing Velma’s glasses is amazing.”

Ted the Animator: “Also… we might have gotten a thing or two a little off.”

Carl the Animator: “Oh? Like?”

Ted the Animator: “Well, in these closeups, the log with the dynamite is nowhere nearby…”

Ted the Animator: “…but in the wide shots, bam, there it is.”

Carl the Animator: “Whoops.”

Ted the Animator: “Also, Scooby turns his tail into some kind of spring-powered… motorboat engine?”

Carl the Animator: “Sure looks like it, at least.”

Ted the Animator: “…I don’t remember animating that, do you?”

Carl the Animator: “Nnnnnnope. Total blank.”

Ted the Animator: “You’d think that would be the sort of thing that stands out in one’s memory.”

Carl the Animator: “Meh… when you’ve seen one tail motor, you’ve seen them all.”

Ted the Animator: “…anyway, cut to the wide shot again, and poof, the dynamite log defies physics and reappears.”

Carl the Animator: “Maybe that’s why Scooby didn’t just roll the log to dunk the fuse underwater! It kept phasing in and out of existence.”

Ted the Animator: “Fortunately, Scoob and Velma escape, narrowly missing a big explosion…”

Ted the Animator: “…originating a couple feet to the right of the dynamite.”

Carl the Animator: “Ah. Hrm.”

Ted the Animator: “I’ll admit, it’s not our best work… but given the timeframe and budget, it’s pretty darn spectacular.”

Carl the Animator: “Just imagine what would happen if the show had proper funding, and deadlines achievable by sane humans. We’d create the freakin’ Sistine Chapel.”

anonymous asked:

What did ted think about the fan mail he received or when girls would turn up to trials to see him?

He loved the attention during his trial, he was the superstar of his own show. He waved or winked to the girls. He received a lot of letters but answered to people he didn’t know only from time to time (which gave us this iconic letter ! ). He received all kind of letters though, from people with a mothering instinct to the extreme groupies like Janet (which gave us a good story shared in The Only Living Witness) :

Most worshipful was a woman named Janet, who began writing Bundy in the summer of 1979. He returned a single letter after going to Death Row, enough response from her hero to inspire Janet for months. In September, she wrote him, “I got the letter you sent me and read it again. I kissed it all over and held it to me. I don’t mind telling you I am crying. I just don’t see how I can stand it anymore. I love you so very much, Ted.
Janet sent him photographs of her and begged for pictures back. Her letters poured in. “I adore you and I just can’t stand not hearing from you,” she wrote. “It’s absolutely tearing me apart. You are so precious to me. I want you so much I can almost taste it. What I wouldn’t give to have an hour alone with you. I would show you in every way how much I love you. There’s nothing I wouldn’t do.
Janet, who was married, was jealous of Carole. “I guess I should not be writing to you until I get a letter from you letting me know just where I stand,” she once ventured. Janet was willing to overlook Carole, even though “you can’t imagine how bad it hurts me and still is tearing my insides out.

(….)

Janet the letter writer came and started at him. Pale, with severely pulled-back hair, Janet sat smoldering for Ted. She apparently meant what she said in her love letters.
Dear Carole,” Ted wrote one day, “please do not sit in the same row with Janet. When I look over toward you, there she sits contemplating me with her mad eyes like a deranged seagull studying a clam. I can feel her spreading hot sauce on me already.

“Ted... I’ve been thinking.”

Ted the Animator: “Mmhmm?”

Carl the Animator: “You know those ‘what to expect when you’re expecting’ books?”

Ted the Animator: “Um… sorta?”

Carl the Animator: “Why the heck are they only about expecting babies?”

Ted the Animator: “I… um….”

Carl the Animator: “There are loads of waaaaay more interesting things people might be expecting, and someone could write a book about that.”

Ted the Animator: “I’m not so sure about–”

Carl the Animator: “Fortunately, I’m here to set things right.

Ted the Animator: “…I… I don’t….”

Carl the Animator: “Sit tight, I’m gonna call up some publishers.”

  • what she says: i'm fine
  • what she means: the writers of how HIMYM completely destroyed a huge arc of their show and character development within 13 minutes of their series finale. they spent an entire season building up to Barney and Robin's wedding yet they got divorced over their "inability" to fix their marriage. and the way they finally got Barney, a person who over the years had some of the best character development in the show to finally settle down is because of his daughter. Was Robin not enough? Why did Ted need to get his stereotypical ending with Robin? Why did Ted need to go after Robin at all? Why couldn't Robin and Barney get their happy ending with each other?
