This kid is dancing to me bobbing my head to this song.

Reddit told me, and lo, it’s great. Try ‘The Point.’

Where do you get your ideas?

Tone. Tone, man. If you were determined to capture the tone of something, or to pay homage to it, your work would have a life that most creative storytelling lacks.

Arthur C. Clarke: best friend of anime

Today I was reminded that anime frequently borrows from Western science-fiction.

I’ve known about the Neon Genesis Evangelion - Childhood’s End connection. Today I was researching Logan’s Run and came across The City and the Stars, which I have never read.

I just watched Gurren Lagann, and multiple plot elements overlap. I suspect TCatS lacks Gurren Lagann’s enthusiasm and insanity. It probably also doesn’t have face-mecha.

I’m surprised it’s taken me this long to listen to Improv4Humans, considering my background as a UCB fan and long form improv performer/enthusiast. This scene is a personal favorite - the presence of the lousy British accents is alleviated by the presence of one authentic one. I must have listened to this a dozen times yesterday.

EDGE OF TOMORROW (2014) directed by Doug Liman. 5 out of 5 MIMICS!
I can’t think of one negative thing to say about this film. I’m appalled at how good it was. This might be a perfect summer blockbuster flick. I really loved it. Is this the best popcorn movie Tom Cruise has done since Minority Report? (Tropic Thunder is TOO GOOD to be considered merely a popcorn movie.)

IT’S SO GOOD

Q

studibro asked:

Is there ever a bad time to watch Seinfeld?

A

jeffgerstmann:

Seinfeld still sucks, thanks for checking.

Every time I think I’m the only voice of dissent, JEFF GERSTMANN AGREES

Except on some things we disagree on, but this isn’t one of those

"WEH DEHMEND EH NERM!"

This is a genius piece of irreverent fan film parody from nigh 10 years ago now. Halo viewed through a truly odd lens. It still holds up for quotability and dumb/hilarious. I still marvel at the brilliant little touches - the super-detailed werewolf rules, the wizard’s cocked boot pose, the Orbiter’s final words, Master Chief’s weird body.

I guess Bryan Waterman has been up to professional animating stuff, which is good to hear.
