If you wish to support Activision Blizzard workers in their walkout today, they haven’t asked to not cross the (virtual or otherwise) picket line but rather for people to raise awareness of harassment issues in the games industry and to support the following:
If you wish to show your support, they’re asking people to use the #ActiBlizzWalkout hashtag and the blue heart emoji 💙
Genuinely. Honestly. I am so pissed that people are still selling HP fanart and shit.
“The money’s not going to JK” okay even assuming someone who loves Harry Potter enough to still be making and selling HP merch can be trusted to not go to HP world or not see a new movie or not buy a new video game, even assuming that,
It’s still fucking free advertisement. It’s still profiting off of a transphobe’s popularity. It’s still showing a willingness to associate with people who are HP fans because of JK’s transphobia.
You’re nostalgic for Harry Potter? It helped you through hard times? You made a lot of friends because of it? You are trans yourself? Bitch me too, you’re not special. Indulge that nostalgia in private for free. Wtf is wrong with you?
While I’m being loud: I also hate the Twilight Renaissance. Maybe that Meyer bitch hasn’t actively influenced US politics like JK has with UK politics, but that shit is still racist, anti-indigenous, pedophilic bs. Sucks for you if you spent the time you could’ve enjoyed it in some contrarian not-like-other-girls phase. Buy a book that doesn’t feature a confederate as one of the good guys.
something i don’t think a lot of aspiring animators realize is snappy animation is just as good as smooth animation and while smooth animation is really impressive it’s incredibly hard and time consuming. snappy animation can get the point across quicker and there’s a real art to making the squash and stretch format work well in a limited amount of frames
also like the mindset a lot of people have that “more frames in an animation = better animation” and “animation that has more frames added to it always look good” doesn’t hold up at all when there’s a shit ton of animators who ditch the concept of smooth animation for snappy animation and work with a few frames at a time because it pops more. when you add frames to something that wasnt intended to have a ton of inbetweens it always looks weird and unnatural and it ruins the entire thing. buttery smooth animation is cool but god almighty if you’re pushing towards 60 frames of animation a second being the new industry standard for all animators i’m hitting you with a brick
i don’t add to posts a lot but the “smoothness” you see in things like disney animation and aimkid stuff isn’t just more frames either! it’s about knowing timings and spacings and drawing the actual poses and putting that all together well. i feel like people always associate smoothness with more frames but you can easily get nice snappy animation or smooth animation with 5 frames each, it just depends on your drawing and timings! which is why 60fps upscales are an extra slap in the face since they disregard all of that to make mushy random interpolations
israel has been bombing residential towers, refugee camps, media offices and now there are reports that it plans to bomb two UN run schools in palestine. reminder that many ppl who have been rendered homeless by these bombings have found shelter in these schools. palestine’s hospitals are overflowing, their top doctors are being killed in these bombings, and the pandemic is still raging while israel is blocking humanitarian aid as well. these are war crimes. this is a genocide.
PLEASE do not stop talking about Palestine and spreading information, especially from Palestinians, whether it’s here or on other social medias you use more often. Palestinians themselves have said over and over again that spreading this on social media helps, I’ve seen some people say that it feels different this time now that the world is starting to hear their voices. and please donate if you are able to
I hate them more than anything
