they are currently in the trash

depthjacks  asked:

If i had a million dollars, i would give them to you lol

Things to do with $1mil: buy FA from IMVU for $100k [IMVU really isn’t making the money it wants, fire current staff], invest $200k on a porno furry 22min OVA that furries like, invest $200k on a good clean furry animation that normal people like. Indulge $100k back into the furry art community in general, $200k on another good furry episode, enough that it’s pitched as a pilot for an ongoing series [probably based on a well-received comic in the furry community]. The remaining $200,000 is for any setbacks. 

or, nix FA if IMVU doesn’t want to sell it, and contribute another $200k towards furry animation trash.

Or, group together a team of furry animators to create your own mini animation series for less than 50k per shit and let patreon cover other costs because furries don’t know how to price themselves. This one is the most reasonable.

Was watching the camp camp finale on YouTube when I came across this comment and now I’m 1000% even more sad

Rhodé Marshall-

“The late Karabo Mokoena’s beautiful smile has sparkled across my timeline for more than a week.

Her friends and family have been pleading for help finding her since her disappearance on April 28.

Then that smile was replaced by pictures of what’s believed to be the place where her body was burnt.

“The boyfriend confessed. He killed and burnt my daughter,” read a Facebook post by her father.

I can’t begin to imagine the rage her family and friends must be feeling.

Someone they trusted, who pretended not to know where she was, who “helped” look for her, had taken her life.

Here’s the reality: one in every four womxn in South Africa is physically abused by an intimate partner.

Every six hours a womxn is killed by a current or former intimate partner.

These numbers are shocking. These numbers aren’t dropping. South African womxn are under attack and they are afraid.

Battling to come to terms with Karabo’s story, womxn online began sharing their experiences of abuse and #MenAreTrash trended.

But of course, the louder womxn’s voices grow, the louder the challenge from men, and soon enough #WomenAreTrash was a thing.

Posts were shared where men schooled womxn on trusting too easily, on being more cautious, telling us how to live our lives.

Again, there was very little reflection by men on what womxn were saying when they uttered the words “men are trash”.

Will we ever get to the point where schooling aimed at men is as vigorous as the defence of them?

Men just aren’t being regulated the way women are.

It’s men who need the wake-up call.

It’s your sons, brothers and friends who need to be taught that they own no part of any womxn.

It’s your sons who need to be taught how to handle disappointment, jealousy, anger and manage their rage.

Is it our responsibility to make men feel more secure or masculine, to nurse their egos?

At the helm of the “not all men are trash” declarations were the most worrying of them all: the woke misogynist.

The woke misogynist is the guy who talks loudly about gender equality and whose vocabulary is made up of all the right words, he calls himself a feminist – but is the same one outed for assaulting and belittling his partner.

While we were basically being told that, as South African womxn, we should be grateful for the opportunity to see another day, there was this immense amount of shared pain for the Mokoena family, known and unknown families that have lost their daughters, the families who are still looking for their daughters and every womxn who has had their fear of being the next victim trampled on by the woke misogynists who rose up in defence of the brotherhood.

While you think that you’re one of the good guys and will never lift a hand against a womxn, there are so many ways in which you inflict pain on us.

Making us doubt ourselves, our beauty and our worth.

Take a moment and think about how you, as a man, picked at a womxn’s confidence with things you deem to be little mistakes and misunderstandings, how you violently broke her confidence down.

Guys, we don’t just fear that you’ll rape and kill us, we also fear that you’ll abuse our kindness and trample on the sparkle you once saw.

That’s why we’re saying #MenAreTrash, dear woke men.

Stop being defensive and listen… Listen carefully and hold each other accountable.

Womxn are afraid”

Just so we’re all clear on where I’m at with how things are.

I think I resisted this sort of performative post stuff because 1) I try and keep things as positive as possible for the sake of other folks, and 2) showing basic decency and respect towards others should be the bare minimum of being a decent human. But I guess there come times where the obvious needs to be said, just for the sake of history.

So to all marginalized persons and groups out there: please know that I am always happy to share this ocean with you, and that you belong here. All I have to offer you is a bunch of art, a listening ear, and some extra cash that I can donate your way, so I hope it helps in even a small way.

EDIT: Added some more fishies. 

It’s time for today’s Hiveswap development team interview!

Hey there folks! We’re back with our next Hiveswap developer interview, right on schedule. This week we’re chatting with our animation director Angela Sham, who – as some of you may already be aware – was already creatively contributing to the Homestuck universe before she started working on Hiveswap. So let’s jump right in!

Introduce yourself to the fans! What is your specific role on the Hiveswap team?

Hullo!! My name’s Angela and I’m the animation director on Hiveswap. I’m responsible for overseeing the development of sprites, cutscenes, and basically anything that moves. Together with our lead animator Adrienne, I help to make the pictures go. I’m very lucky to be drift compatible with her.

When and how did you get your start on the Hiveswap project?

Two years ago What Pumpkin (WP) brought me on to animate Act 7, and then I transitioned into game work! Speaking of Act 7, you can check that out right here if you’d like.

Tell us a little bit about your career background! How did you get your start in animation? Do you have any advice for others looking to enter this field?

I didn’t ever expect to be an animator, to be honest. I didn’t go to school for art, and animation was a manic sort of hobby that helped me concentrate. When I graduated I decided to give it a shot as a career and happened to start freelancing for Sparkler Monthly, where another WP employee was also working, and that was when I joined the Homestuck team. My advice is, there is no one “right” way to enter the field, so draw what you want and put it out there. In my case, I drew fan art and a Homestuck fan animation called “A Lullaby for Gods,” and… here we are! In fact, you can watch “A Lullaby for Gods” right here if you’re so inclined.

We’re making a video game, so of course the question must be asked: what’s your favorite game of all time, and what games are you playing currently (if any)?

This is an impossible question; how could you ask me this!? You’re gonna have to settle for categories of favorite/influential games, including hits like I Cried for 50 Days (Shadow of the Colossus); Why Am I Doing This to Myself (God Hand); I Have a Mouth and It Is Screaming (Rule of Rose, Haunting Ground); I’m Just RPG Trash (Final Fantasy IX, Okami, Paper Mario, Kingdom Hearts); and Gitaroo-Man (Gitaroo-Man). I’m currently playing through NieR: Automata, and I drive around in Grand Theft Auto V when I really need to relax.

Are there any games that you currently use or have used as inspiration for your own animation work here on Hiveswap, or just in general?

Street Fighter III, BlazBlue, and Skullgirls for sure.

As an animator, you must have some favorite cartoons and/or anime – tell us about them!

Tekkonkinkreet was the film that made me want to animate. Something about it made me realize it was possible, that such an incredible thing was made by people, even though I grew up on a healthy diet of cartoons and anime. Some favorite cartoons include Hey Arnold! and Ed, Edd n Eddy, while Samurai Champloo and Escaflowne rank among my favorite anime. Animators who have been especially influential to me include Hiroyuki Imaishi, Yutaka Nakamura, Norio Matsumoto, and Sergio Pablos. I could talk all day about animation, so I’m gonna do you all a favor and head myself off at the pass.

What’s your workstation like? Do you like to listen to any particular kinds of music while you work? If so, tell us about it!

I work from home, so it gets very… uh… listen, there are a lot of snacks within arm’s reach, between my monitors and just a bit too close to all of my art books. Nobody should be told about this, let’s move on.

Favorite Homestuck character?

HMMM. The beta kids are nearest and dearest to my heart; I can’t rank them because they wouldn’t be great without each other. And their patron trolls. So I guess I have eight favorite characters, and are we only being asked impossible questions now.

Favorite Homestuck ship?

GUESS SO. In the early days, I was really ready for Karkat >3>John to happen, but after all these years, the long-buried ship that I think of every so often when I’m lying awake at night wondering where it all went is… Dave/Terezi.

Favorite Homestuck flash?

Lord. I’ve been going through flashes for like 40 minutes now, and this one is actually impossible. This isn’t an answer, but the first one I checked was Jade:Enter, then Jack:Ascend, then Descend, then Make Her Pay, then…

Do you have a personal message you’d like to relay to all the Homestuck and Hiveswap fans out there?

I know. You don’t think I know, but I know. I’m there too.

mcelroy fan problems

- constant uncontrollable giggling in public places

- the more inappropriate the place, the more uncontrollable the giggling

- “hachi machi!”

- sub-consciously adopting the speech patterns of your favourite brother

- your sense of humour is now completely incomprehensible to anyone who doesn’t know what a mcelroy is

- referring to literally every single thing on this godforsaken planet - living, dead or otherwise - as an *adjective* boy

- completely insufferable when in the presence of other mcelroy fans

- when you introduce a friend or loved one to the brothers and your deep multi-faceted relationship devolves into a never-ending stream of ding-dong jokes and discussions about the latest episode of each of the seven billion mcelroy media products currently available for your consumption

-  listening to them on a bad day and becoming unexpectedly emotional about how they are very good and nice even when everything else is a big trash pile- 

- sorry i just love them so much

- crying now

So today in Overwatch…

I main Mercy and while in Skirmish for QP with a friend, I was following the Genji on our team to the enemy team’s spawn, we made friends with the enemy Ana (who then left) and Genji climbed onto the balcony. I flew to him, exchanged ‘Hellos’ then he types ‘Nice’ in chat (so I followed with :) ). Genji danced, Mercy (since I didn’t have the dance emote) laughed and he types “Angela” in the chat. So I replied with “Genji”, we sat down and five seconds later he left.

I REGRET NOT HAVING SHADOWPLAY ON.

Meanwhile Pav (friend) is standing not far from us as Orisa just going “Current Outlook: Concerning” and to be honest he’s probably right, what am I doing.

Prompt # 151

“What the heck did you just do?!”

“You know, I’m not entirely sure, but I think I might have just summoned a demon?”

Idk if im a crackpot or what but This is the scene when Rhysand shows up to Feyre’s cell the night before the last trial where he reveals everything he’s been doing + how he wants amarantha to die, etc etc. And then look at what he says at the end of their convo –> from the first highlight to the last, esp the part: “you’d go tell Amarantha the truth about her whore. Perhaps she’d give you Tamlin for it.”

And I’m just floored Bc it’s currently 1:30am and I’m thinking what if rhys told Feyre all those secrets about himself so she can use them the next day??? Just in case shit went bad (which it did) w amarantha …..so feyre could turn him in and potentially save herself or even tamlin. liKE THIS SHATTERS MY HEART RHYS WAS GIVING HER AMMUNITION TO USE AGAINST HIM SO SHE COULD SAVE HERSELF IF SHE NEEDED TO LIKE HE WAS READY TO BE TORTURED/DIE/OTHER HORRIBLE STUFF IF FEYRE USED WHAT SHE KNEW AND STRUCK ANOTHER BARGAIN W AMARANTHA LIKE I AM TRASH WHY DOES HE DO STUFF LIKE THIS I CANT HANDLE IT

“Hello, witchling,” he said.
Her full sensuous mouth tightened slightly, either in a repressed grimace or smile, he couldn’t tell. But she sat up, her moon-white hair sliding forward - her chains clanking. “Hello, princeling,” she said.

Songs Currently in the works: Angst Katsudeku song titled “Worth It” and Fluff Katsudeku song with no title just yet. I have been nothing but Katsudeku trash for the past two weeks and these songs are fueled from my analysis and obsession with this angsty pair. 

STAY TUNED IN!!!!!!! and thank you for all the love :)

PS: If anyone knows the artists of these two lovely works of fanart can you please let me know so I can tag them appropriately? Thank you :)
