I put music on my profile more for my own convenience than anything else.
My life consists of clicking and dragging colorful horses around in Adobe Flash and occasionally publishing the results.
I also do animation for Super Smash Ponies when I’m not working on independent projects. The ride never ends.
Obligatory hey-maybe-Stunthead-stopped-being-a-pleb-I-should-ask-how-he’s-doing-with-his-animation post.
Because here’s how it’s going for me.
Every time I get into a debate about which superhero is the best, I always insist it is the Doctor. Everyone tells me the Doctor is no superhero. But I want believe.
I need to groom you and DeadParrot into god-tier animators like myself. That way, we can all work on some sort of collaborative project that doesn’t use those
terrible terrible Double Rainboom Flash builds.
Animate? Fuck, when was the last time I accomplished shit?
Apologies for the recent delays I didn’t tell you about. Here’s my life in a silly cat gif:
Yeah, my mouse was on the wrong side of the country for a week, I had to tour a bunch of colleges, make a decision so I didn’t get shafted on the dorms and roommates, fly cross-country on the first day knives are allowed on US planes and when I come home I find a note from my school saying, “Exudes needs to turn in homework on a more regular basis.” Also, remind me to not spend so much damn time playing Pokemon.
On the plus side, didn’t get stabbed.
Is that a Honda NSX I spy? I believe it is.
But you never ironically explained why SkyMall is or is not art.
Do pardon me. I must have asked my question on the silly premise that the true meaning of “art” was that one interpreted it on their own, and applied their own judgement, rather than simply stating, “Because someone with a degree and frizzy hair says it’s art, it’s art.” On these grounds, everything that can be interpreted as not art is art. What makes a blank canvas, fresh off the factory lines, not art, and what makes one that has been stared at for forty days art, without resorting to the opinions of others, for fear of crafting your own?
I hereby challenge you, Fifths, to an honor-bound duel, in accordance with the Gentleman’s Dueling Charter of 1672. I formally charge you, Fifths, to defend the following piece, “1000 Hours of Staring,” by Tom Friedman, as art, and to justify its display in a museum over this visual representation of SkyMall.
I was at the Henry Art Gallery the other day, since I am no uncultured heathen, and saw this displayed in their collection. It’s exactly what it sounds like; over the course of five years, Tom Friedman spent over forty days staring at a blank canvass before putting it up in a museum.
No seriously, wat.
Every now and then, that picture of Patrick makes me cringe when I realize he nailed a board into his head. Especially when he runs into the doorframe.
>tfw you lived in small-town Idaho when Napoleon Dynamite came out and you and your friends dressed up as the entire cast the following Halloween
Guess who’s now in possession of two audio files titled “applebloom.mp3” and “scootaloo.mp3”?
This nigga. Turns out, the VA has been done for a week or so, but just forgot to send them my way. While Applebloom’s lines (read: line) don’t (read: doesn’t) require any lip syncing, I can finally work on Scootaloo’s talking scenes. Unless, of course, you think yourself man enough to take on such a challenge.
Seriously though, how’re your animation skills coming along? You’re more than welcome to work on Scootaloo.
God, I can’t stand grammar errors in image macros. On a side note, what are all those dogs doing in that cat’s neighborhood?
Uploaded an image to You Came to the Wrong Neighborhood.
I guess it helps that I’m in direct contact with more male VA’s than female. The one who was originally going to voice Rainbow Dash, who has ignored me for several weeks now, was apparently sick or something, and now she’s on spring break, so I have no idea if she’s still on board. The one who was going to voice Scootaloo and Applebloom I never met personally, and I haven’t been able to get in touch with the guy who said she agreed to do it, so I’m pretty much up a creek without a paddle at this point. I’ll keep pestering people who are more famous than I in hopes that some of them will take pity upon our feeble attempts at making a good animation with music and voice actors and stuff.
Drink myself to death over a bunch of colorful ponies is the other option.
Get back in your box, where musicians, voice actors and static artists languish until the animator master race finds use for you.
>mfw voice actors actually get something done
No, not Heartbreaker, yet. I take back my previous comparison of male voice actors to der Führer, but as I told Fifths, female voice actors are worse than Eva Braun. They continue to elude me, just like women have always eluded me.
What? Who would ever say anything bad about voice actors, let alone compare them to Hitler?
Okay, male ones, anyways. Female voice actors are worse than Eva Braun.
