The way the earthbenders do their thing and then a small CGI rock just lazily floats into camera range to be thrown gets me every time I see that clip

I bet they imagined that they lift a huge rock but they noticed in editing that it'd block the whole view, so they decreased its size and kept the original speed.

Although the movie is not up to any fan's standards the soundtrack is good despite of that.

I think it was supposed to be that big wall that all the stomping was about. Footwork that happened after the wall went up. Because that's how earthbending works I guess.

I watched an episode of Japanese style originator and there is a Yakitori Chef who is retiring after 54 years and the episode has been really hammering home now this is the last time he's doing a lot of these actions and when he did his last skewer everybody in the restaurant started bawling. And then he did that happy cry and it's brutal.

That "Hilda" series on Netflix is quite good. If you like Gravity Falls then it might be right up your alley.
This series is based on a comic by Luke Pearson https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hilda_(comic_book_series) and grabbed my attention a long time ago with Free Comic Book Day issue from many years back but I haven't found the opportunity to read the comics.
I'm surprised that the animated series looks almost exactly like the drawn panels of the comic and doesn't deviate too much from the style.
As far as I can see it is very faithful through and through.

I think that there will be many here that will like it too.

Watched the first season of Dragon Prince on Netflix. It was good and you can see the Avatar DNA embedded in it. 9 episodes was kinda short but the characters are solid enough and if they keep up the arcs and characterization then this show could get really good over time.

Also the animation ended up being better than the trailer had me expecting. More like RWBY season 5 rather than RWBY season 1.

I'm watching a documentary about the DePatie-Freleng series "Misterjaw", which has an interview with the "Courage the Cowardly Dog" creator John Dilworth.

Dilworth is extremely kooky and hilarious. I love it so much :hiii:

EDIT: He did the interview wearing a scuba gear ("Misterjaw" is about a shark, btw)

Been meaning to buy the "Hilda" books for years, but I finally bought the first 2 books today. Watching the cartoons finally got me to it.

The local bookstore is carrying “Phoebe and Her Unicorn” books. Also Cucumber Quest, which surprised the heck out of me, because I haven’t followed it in years and didn’t know it had gotten licensed for publication at some point. :-I

I have all the "Phoebe" books on my shelf, even pre-ordered the next one :twiright:

I need to buy another shelf, because the ones I have are filled up, and I bought more books this week :-I

On Thursday I bought a bag of stuff at a rummage sale because it had a USB wall adapter in it, because I'm the last person on the planet to own fewer USB wall adapters than things that need one. Only after getting the bag home and dumping out the contents did I notice that one of the pairs of earbuds that it also had in it was wireless. But THEN it turned out it was actually a matching pair of wireless headsets, the kind you use to make it look like you're talking to yourself when you're on the phone. So then I was like, OK, whoever bought these got two of them because you can technically use them as a pair of wireless earbuds in a pinch. But after attempting to pair them with my iPad, it turned out that no, they don't work that way.

Anyway, these things are still selling for a decent amount new and I feel like I ought to be trying to pawn them off on eBay, but they're supposed to come with a set of these rubber things that make them fit your ear correctly and they're missing all but one between them along with one of the chargers.

Meh. Maybe I'll just dump them back into the bag along with a note warning that they're not a pair, I just happened to end up with two of them, and re-donate them to a thrift store.

Welp... I read all of "Phoebe and Her Unicorn" this week. I got all the books and I binge-clicked through all the rest of the webcomic. :-I
It was good but the repeats were extremely annoying, especially when I've read them already an hour ago.

I don't know why they do that. It'd be like going through a TV show on Netflix and having to fast-forward through an archive of every time they aired a rerun.

That's one nice thing about webcomics. They'll usually just be like "Hey, I'm on vacation; check back in a couple weeks." Ozy and Millie went into reruns once to fill what was going to be a months-long hiatus, and even kept them in the archives, but they also featured several-paragraph-long annotations, way longer than the ones that ended up going into the books.

On a lot of older anime, if a show is a "two short" format (two 11 minute segments in each half-hour), it wasn't unusual for a series to become half-rerun later down the line, where one segment is all-new, and the second half is a repeat from an earlier episode. That happened with the 1966 "Osomatsu Kun" anime.

It got annoying in the DVD releases, where they kept the rerun portion of the half-hours, rather than just including the new segments.

That happened with US shows as well. On "Bullwinkle", it got to point that the supporting segments (Fairy Tales, Dudley Do-Right, etc.) went into reruns, with only the Bullwinkle portions being new.

It's likely because the person who made the soundtrack (James Newton Howard) is definitely a pretty talented professional. He collaborated with Hans Zimmer on The Dark Knight, scored a couple Disney films (Treasure Planet and Atlantis: The Lost Empire), and worked on many other films.

I'd recommend looking through some of his credits (on Wikipedia/IMDB), as it's pretty interesting. A lot of soundtrack creators tend to jump from one movie to a completely different movie, as this person apparently scored Detroit and Fantastic Beasts within a year of each other.

With Sears' filing for bankruptcy, I'm reminded of how they used to sell houses through their catalog. They would send the parts through traincars, which came with instructions on how to build them. My dad's childhood home was bought from Sears.

A lot of those homes are still around today.

YouTube is down right now. Like, the whole thing. For those who don't catch it in time, all embedded videos are just thumbnails overlaid with the 500 Internal Server Error message. If this doesn't get turned into a meme by this time tomorrow, something has gone horribly wrong.

I really wish there was a way to look at all the devices that are pulling down data from my home network and exactly how much they're each using, including wireless ones. I'd hoped the router's software suite came with one, but it didn't. Lately I've been getting random drops and I suspect it's because we now have two wireless devices trying to download updates to stuff whenever they feel like it. But if the ISP is to blame, I want to know it.
