thebluehue22: libertarirynn: thebiggaybagel: libertarirynn: littlemisstfp: shanigrim: Pixar I will not stand for this ugly erasure  I’m fucking cackling They really fucked up the Andy design model in TS4. Like yes I get that animation changes and advances but even with changing technology he maintained the same basic facial structure even when aged him up. TS4 gave him a completely different skeletal structure. he was really fucking ugly in the originals I’m fuckin relieved I dunno WHAT y’all are on Pixar has historically been pretty bad at human models, but child and adult Andy in TS3 looked fine to me. You know whose good at humans? Dreamworks <3 Even their subsidary with lower budget does stylized people well. I love the DreamWorks models from HTTYD especially. Look at their female characters!

It’s a bunch dudes with facial hair who get together, put on tails, and do a photoshoot. This photoshoot gets turned into a calendar which is then sold and most (if not all) proceeds go to charity. Their most recent charity went to VPNL, which according to their website “works diligently throughout the province to change attitudes, behaviours, and social norms associated with violence. VPNL organizations provide violence prevention and early intervention services to those most at risk of experiencing violence: women, children and youth, Indigenous women and children, older persons, persons with disabilities, persons of varying race or ethnicity, LGBTQ+ persons, and persons of varying economic status.” They also currently have applications open for new merbys! Aside from it going to a great cause, it’s also a super funny & cute calendar! It makes for a great gift. I got two in 2018! Oh and they’re also hella inclusive and socially conscious. One of my favorite quotes from the Merby site: “Inclusion is our jam. Humans of all genders, ethnicities, faiths, abilities and ages are welcome. Good people, doing good things, having fun the whole time – that’s who we are. Ability to grow facial hair is irrelevant – it’s the beard inside that matters most.” : hu by Tami feminismandmedia: fairyofsomething: affinityforthestars: jumpingjacktrash: curlicuecal: uluhlynx: sweet-saccharin: if this ain’t the most beautiful mermaid you’ve ever seen… He looks so happy 10/10 a good mermaid the mermaid of happiness Reblog to have good and warm feelings ;w; <3 I think he’s actually from the Merby group.

chadchanington: liberscaryrynn: chadchanington: liberscaryrynn: notmusa: how Not all men can grow beards. In fact there are several people groups for whom facial hair is extremely rare, take Native Americans for example. A better question is why he feels the need to wear a loincloth. But he’s like British tho right? He could definitely grow a beard Not every British guy can grow a beard? It’s a genetic and hormonal thing. Lmao maybe not grow a beard but EVERY British guy can at least get splotchy, patchy hair growth. Plus, look at his Dad. He would at least get something going. Yes but his father presumably had the normal diet of a wealthy Englishman. Tarzan lived off whatever was in the woods that the apes were eating. We have no idea how that diet would’ve affected his hormonal balances.: How THE Fuck орo HURK DOES TARZAN NOT MANE A ВЕARD COUGH СOKGH НАСК chadchanington: liberscaryrynn: chadchanington: liberscaryrynn: notmusa: how Not all men can grow beards.

cisphobicmac: thecringeandwincefactory: i-hate-chick-fil-a: This guide will be useful to Americans when we need to protest This is great stuff for situations where you’re dealing primarily with cops - just please keep in mind that one size does not necessarily fit all situations. We’ve found locally, for instance, that nazis here like to use knives. A lot of knife injuries come from attempting to fend off an attack, and thus result in slashing injuries to the arms. Fortunately there are very light, flexible, and relatively inexpensive products originally intended for butchers to use that are great for this and will cover your whole arm or forearm. Always research this stuff ahead of time and look at what other people in similar situations are doing and share the information you find. And remember that you don’t need to reinvent the wheel to protect yourself. And always mask up.

uncommonbish: Can we please get just one robot apocalypse movie where white supremacy is correctly identified as the catalyst for war? : Charles Hymas @charleshymas Artificial intelligence (Al) and face recognition technology is being used for the first time in job interviews in the UK to identify the best candidates. telegraph.co.uk/news/2019/09/2.. William Perrin and 9 others 9:07 AM Sep 28, 2019 Twitter Web App assorted troublemakers @quatoria it's an amazing act of stage magic white supremacy has pulled, to transfer it's values and norms to "artificial intelligence" and then, because they successfully taught a computer to be racist (congrats i guess?) pretend that it is now neutral and objective and unassailable assorted troublemakers @quatoria like, teaching a facial recognition system to make judgements based on posting those same BS eugenics into a screed on livejournal in that the output of both procedures is identically unsound garbage - but one is called "objective" eugenicist BS is *exactly* like 7:57 PM Sep 30, 2019 Twitter Web Client assorted troublemakers @quatoria as though computers had some magical inherent property within them that transforms all of their output into reasonable, logical, defensible things, as if they magic black box that takes in input and were a produces Correct Results assorted troublemakers @quatoria you can get literally *any* desired output from systems like these, when designing them. it is laughable to pretend otherwise. 8:00 PM Sep 30, 2019 Twitter Web Client uncommonbish: Can we please get just one robot apocalypse movie where white supremacy is correctly identified as the catalyst for war?

gaming: Indie Game Spotlight: Untitled Goose Game  Oh, boy, do we have an extra super horrible Indie Game Spotlight exclusive for you today! We’re talking, of course, of Untitled Goose Game, a slapstick simulator, where you play a goose hassling a town full of people who would very much like you to stop hassling them, please. It feels a bit like playing the videogame version of an old cartoon, complete with reactive soundtrack. Everything that happens in the game is very low stakes (the goose doesn’t get involved in political scandals, or drive a car off a ramp etc.), but there’s a lot of room for comedic performance in doing things like stealing clothes off a washing line and dumping them in a pond. The team at House House shares roles a lot, and so the game was predominantly designed collaboratively by four people. We chatted with Stuart Gillespie-Cook, who mostly works on animation. Also within House House is Jake Strasser, largely responsible for the design of levels and environments, Nico Disseldorp who does all the programming, and Michael McMaster who mostly works on art direction and UI. The iconic sound effects were made by Em Halberstadt, and Dan Golding designed the music. There’s also art from Kalonica Quigley and additional UI programming from Cherie Davidson. Stuart Gave us the lowdown on the curious title, the game mechanics, and dream crossovers. Read on! What’s the story behind the title of the game? This more or less happened by accident; at first, we just needed something to put on a video we were submitting to a festival. It’s become one of the best things about the game, and I’m so glad we stuck with it. I will say it’s a weird thing to explain when your very not-online hairdresser asks you “oh, what game are you working on?”  How did the team come up with the animation style? The whole visual style of the game is designed to be nice and clean, very readable and approachable. The animation specifically takes a lot of inspiration from slapstick and pantomime—with big, over the top reactions that are impossible to miss. We wanted to squeeze as much emotion as possible out of these people without facial expressions, so everything has to be evoked with body language. We also lean heavily on two dimensional, hand-drawn effects that are lifted from comics—lines to represent the direction of a honk, stars when someone hits their thumb with a hammer, etc. Untitled Goose Game offers a unique take on the puzzle genre. What other mechanics can we expect? Because it’s a game that’s largely about interacting with a bunch of people, the game borrows heavily from AI systems in stealth games. Playing with a character’s awareness of where the goose is, where they left their stuff, where that sound came from etc. is a big part of the comedy of the game. So, while it’s less restrictive than most stealth games, and there’s no real fail state (ie. if a character sees a goose, they’ll think “ah, there’s a goose” rather than “I’d better shoot and kill that spy”), those explicit behaviours that are so present in the stealth genre are really important in our goose game. If you could have the goose cross over into any cinematic or game universe, what would it be and why? It would be nice to see the goose chase Postman Pat over a hedgerow. That era of British children’s television has been a huge influence on the game. Otherwise, we’re always open to having the goose in Smash. Are you ready to fulfill your wildest dreams of becoming a mischevious goose and harassing people? Of course you are!
