(Diego) I’m very glad I had the chance to go through this journey with Felicity, because this is something new for both of us. You know, the size of this film can be very scary. And I was very lucky to have her next to me. Always there to grab my hand and go like: “Oh my god. Here we are. Let’s make sure we stick together.”

It’s great to know that the voice actors for Gorillaz came back to voice the characters again. I had a huge smile on my face once I’ve heard them spoke. So now we know that Phil Cornwell is back as Murdoc, Nelson De Freitas is back as 2D, Remi Kabaka is back as Russel, and as for Noodle…maybe Haruka Kuroda? Who knows? 2D’s voice reminds me of how he talked back in phase 2 and 3. Same goes for Murdoc’s voice. I’m really glad to hear something from Russel too since we haven’t heard a single word from him since phase 2. All in all, I’m so glad Gorillaz made another animated music video. Saturnz Barz was outstanding! The animation style was amazing! It looked like an animated movie! I give major props to Jamie Hewlett and the other people who helped him out. I’m looking forward to what else they have in store for us. Hopefully we’ll hear more from the characters soon and maybe another animated video.

‘i hate writing female characters’

- or ‘me rambling about being a bad writer’


ive been considering myself a feminist for most of my life, but ive only recently identified a big issue i had when writing stories. i genuinely, honest-to-god, really hate creating female characters, like 99% of the time.
it was a weird realization.

when i was a kid, most of the stories i made had an equal amount of female and male characters, all equally fleshed out (as fleshed out as possible for a kid).
when i entered teenagehood, i started writing more female characters and had a lot of fun doing so.
they werent exactly diverse, but they were enjoyable and relatable.
but then, progressively, starting from highschool, i stopped making any new female characters and wrote mainly male characters, with stories centered around them and them only.

my writing didnt change that much, it was just the gender of my characters.
strange. female characters and male characters arent that different, are they? sure, there are some gender-specific experiences people can have in life, but personality traits arent inherently gendered, so what the hell is going on?

because writing female characters seemed like such a pain, i started asking myself questions about it. why are men more interesting? why are women so boring? and of course, the answer to both was “theyre not”. i looked at my favourite shows, webcomics, podcasts, cartoons, etc, and the overwhelming majority of them have male protagonists and/or a male supporting cast.
a real sausage-fest.

and so whenever i read a very compelling, interesting and in depth character description, i kinda felt like it could only be describing a male character, because no female character would ever get so much personality and backstory. so here we are now. even though i know for fact that female characters can be just as enjoyable a male characters. so what to do?

recently ive noticed that to unblock situations in which i need more female characters but struggle to write enough of them, i just take male character concepts and decide theyre female now. then i can work with good starting material for every character and then write further, knowing some of these characters are female. 

its not a perfect, durable solution, but the more i do that, the easier it gets to write female characters right from the start. its hard unlearning the shit i saw in so much of the media i love but i hope ill manage it in the future.
