In the Doctor Who episode “The God Complex”, the Doctor peers into his hotel room to see his greatest fear. We are not shown what it was. Anyone else think he might have seen John Hurt’s character?
He said Star Trek is too “philosophical”? Screw that noise.
I don’t know when this interview happened but I AM SAD AND ANGRY NOW
The philosophies in Star Trek are kinda part of the actual setting. If you don’t get that, why are you allowed to make Star Trek movies.
Sigh. The whole point of Star Trek is that it’s philosophical. If you don’t want philosophical Science Fiction, there’s plenty of that for you to enjoy, but Star Trek is philosophical. Philosophy is part of Star Trek’s DNA, and if you’re given the captain’s chair, you’d better damn well respect that.
This is exactly why I don’t like J.J.’s Star Trek. He just doesn’t get it.I’m still hoping his Star Wars will be good, since he’s obviously a fan of that, but I did not enjoy his first Trek movie, and I’m not even going to watch the new one until it shows up on cable.

Thank you for your apology. I see you restored the source link on your repost, but unfortunately that doesn’t do anything to all the other reposts out there.
Tumblr is still weird on how it handles content sources. A lot of it depends on the individual blog’s theme. And even then it doesn’t always work. On your repost, for instance, it lists my original post as both the Via and the Source. Other blogs still indicate Cartoon Brew as the source and whoever they reblogged it from as the Via. And that stuff is not always present on the dashboard stream or mobile apps.
It’s all kind of wonky, which is why I included a source link in the caption. You may want to keep that in mind when reblogging posts in the future. Credit where credit is due and all that.
Ok, I’m a little annoyed. The last post I made was a photoset of some animated GIFs of Disney characters by famed animator Milt Kahl. The GIFs appeared on a recent article at Cartoon Brew about one of his signature animation moves, called “the Milt Kahl Head Swaggle”.
Because I believe in including citation on tumblr posts, I made sure to note that Cartoon Brew’s article was the source of the GIFs with a link back to their site in the post caption (and also in the content source entry). So, of course, what happens? One of the first people to reblog the post decides to remove the citation from the caption and that’s the version that gets reposted by others. So now there’s a hundred or so reblogs of the citation-less photoset out there on tumblr.
I’m glad the post is getting shared so much, but I’d prefer it had the proper source citation on it. Some themes still show Cartoon Brew as the content source, but not all, which is why I included it in the caption. Sigh.
The link again to the original Cartoon Brew article where the GIFs originated is http://www.cartoonbrew.com/disney/the-milt-kahl-head-swaggle-80861.html

Well, yeah, until Animaniacs gave us “Potty Emergency.”
I love What’s Opera Doc (and Animaniacs for that matter) but for me it doesn’t get any better than Duck Amuck. Best. Cartoon. Ever.
I’ve decided to start taking commissions for character sketches and drawings. I’m currently offering three types of commissions: black & white pencil sketches, colored pencil drawings, and full color digital drawings. Check out my Drawing Challenge posts to see the kind of artwork you can expect.
If you’re interested, head over to my Commissions page for further details and to order yours today.

This is a simple motion-diagram thing I made when talking about animation to non-animators.
This is an awesome visual explanation of the technical principles of timing, ease, and settle in animation! We get asked about this a lot, and this here is an excellent tool to showcase how these apply to making realistic and believable movement. Wonder why flash tweeny animation often looks off and weird? it’s because it’s spaced out like the top one. Vary up your frames, yo!
This should be shown to every student in every Animation 101 class in every film school. It certainly would’ve made my life easier.
This. A thousand times this.
British accent? Check.
Distinctive & unusual wardrobe? Check.
Protects the world from Evil? Check.
Sexy female companions? Check.
Travels through time? Check.
Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the Twelfth Doctor:
How many will remember this joke, I wonder?
I knew I wasn’t the only one who thought this when I watched this episode.
