frustrating to be banned and not being able to discuss the only show I care at the moment. O well.
Lolirock is still fun so far, but they definitely don't air the episodes in order, which is annoying. gonna be annoying to get in the middle of the season and have Iris discovering her sword for the first time, while Amaru save the day by using his personal battlefield.

It's being made, while decisions are being decided over where the show will find its home. It may become a full size series, or just a few web episodes (to serve as a pilot). Only time will tell.

If you mean the character, I think he and his family are goats (god only knows what the green not Darwin is supposed to be). If you mean the whole thing, I believe it's a commercial for some brand of... powdered milk? Whatever it is, it's called "Miracle Star" and comes in a cylinder.

I'm genuinely surprised by this. Most foreign knock offs (including >232462) just have blatantly similar characters for putting on covers, but different plots. The majority of that video is exactly recreating scenes from Gumball with slightly different characters. I think they even traced over some of the facial expression.

Also, I just realized the main character looks kind of like a cartoon goat version of Lucas from Mother.

I know people like you like to be outraged at things, but let me explain to you two scenarios and why they're different.

1. Conversation about RBWY. Respondent says he doesn't like the show and why.

2. Conversation about dude's death. Respondent says "RBWY sucked."

In the first thread, someone saying "You can't think that because X just died" is trying to shield the show from cricitism. In the second thread, you are attempting to hijack a thread about sympathy for the deceased to make it about your own taste in television. You are in the right in the first thread, but in the second you are being an asshole. In the first thread you are criticizing the media that is being discussed. In the second thread you are, perhaps unintentionally, minimizing the tragedy of the person's death because of the quality of his work. You are saying "Yeah, but it's not that big a loss because his work was shitty."

This is the magic of context. Saying the exact same thing in two different contexts can mean entirely different things.

There's a place for criticism of a person's artwork, but it doesn't go on their obituary. People want to celebrate a young man's life and memory, its no time to bring up personal feelings on something so trivial in the grand scheme of things as a webshow.
Criticize to your heart's content. But know that there is a time and a place for everything: critique, discussion and silence as well.

but hey if you really wanna know, I thought his stuff was pretty shitty if mildly entertaining. hell, I've seen rwby fans say the same thing. the guy had no idea how to actually compose shots, set up sequences or use cinematography correctly unless it was ripped out from something else, but fuck it, productivity trumps talent.

There are three major eras of the T&J theatrical shorts: Hanna-Barbera, Deitch, and Chuck Jones. It’s generally up in the air as to whether HB or Chuck gets the nod for the better shorts (it typically comes down to individual shorts rather than the body of work as a whole), but Deitch’s shorts never get brought up in the discussion—and for good reason.

Deitch actually hated T&J for the slapstick violence (not to mention the racist caricature that is the original Mammy Two-Shoes), so he basically did everything possible to separate his version of T&J from basically every other style of animated short in the US (which wasn’t hard, since he and his animation team were Czechoslovakian). Everything looked, sounded, and ‘felt’ so much different than the T&J shorts from either side of the Deitch run that I can’t think of any T&J fan, animation historian, etc. who would willingly place those shorts anywhere near the top 10, let alone the top 100, of a list of the best T&J shorts. (161 T&J shorts were produced between 1940 and 1967; Deitch directed 13 of them.)

I’ll give you an example of each major era and let you decide if Deitch’s work deserves anything but the scorn it receives:
http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2e38cj_tom-and-jerry-posse-cat_fun — Hanna-Barbera Era
http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x20ziyu_calypso-cat_shortfilms — Gene Deitch Era
http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x2g4kn7_tom-and-jerry-cartoon-the-mouse-from-h-u-n-g-e-r_tv — Chuck Jones Era

You can find most T&J shorts on DailyMotion if you want to do more research; just do a search for the title of a given short from this list: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tom_and_Jerry_filmography

No one asked for a DVD set of Deitch’s T&J shorts—for good reason. Collectors might want it, but even then, I’d bet on them thinking twice before putting the money down for it.

to be honest, I mostly hate those Tom and Jerry episodes because of the 60's electro sounds/music . thre's still lots of slapstick in it, and some episode are less "evil tom vs good jerry that do no wrong" so I'll it that. The animation was cheap, though, when the older gens made the show a standard to follow in animation for decades.

Part of the cheapness of the animation comes from where it was made—as I said, Deitch and his animation team were Czechoslovakian. (Also, at the time, Czech animation style was so far removed from anything done in T&J and other ‘gag-driven’ cartoons that Deitch's team had to learn basically every technique that Deitch loved about T&J.)

The difference between word-of-mouth and "viral" marketing is that word-of-mouth is the natural progression of recommendations from person to person, while "viral" is a single person or company posting across multiple sites (sometimes multiple times) in an effort to make it seem like word-of-mouth.

Claims that the former are actually the later are usually used against whatever is being "marketed" when the accuser does not like the thing in question and wants to sow distrust.

It's not typical form to invite all your friends to provide DVD commentary on all 27 episodes of something you consider your biggest failure and want nothing to do with. I'd like to see those unfinished episodes in comic form too, although it may restart afresh and only cannibalize the episodes for parts.

>>233360
I don't think the show itself was honestly as "lolsorandumb xD" as all that, it was mostly the insufferable juvenile fanbase calling themselves penguins of doom and holding up sporks. I've got a looong complicated history with this show, and more of it was to do with the people it attracted than the show itself, it was a silly zeitgeisty romp that became a cultural lightning rod for a specific subset of impressionable troubled yoofs.

But yeah, looking forward to seeing new Zim stuff.

You know, I'd agree? But the HTTYD films really shook things up a bit. Especially with Pixar becoming more commercial as well. the Dragons movies are good movies but bad when compared to regular "Pixar" quality like Incredibles, Wall-E or Ratatouille. But they're definitely better than the likes of the Cars movies or such.

Disney for a while felt super simplisticly commercial, too for a bit. Chicken Little felt terribly insincere for example - but they've clearly been better than both for a while now.

I have to admit when I think of Dreamworks I still sort of think of them in that old "We're going to directly challenge Disney/Pixar by making similar movies to them" mode.
Though to their credit, none of them really directly compare besides the premise, they're all different movies.

I hate this argument. Parents wanting to avoid depictions of sex and nudity in the media their children consume is completely rational. Parents should make sure talk to their kids about these things, but the only people who should decide when and why those talks happen should be the parents. It shouldn't be forced on them by the TV shows the kids watch.

I can understand that, but as of now the lack of certain content in children cartoons is used more as an excuse to sideline discussion of certain things as "too adult" such as homosexual relationships. And that is something that should be more open about to kids and itself shouldn't be seen as something sexual in nature.

No. Part of growing up is learning that the world isn't the room your parent imprison you until you are 18. Parent's role isn't to blind their kids, it's to let them see and explain, before, during and after. But If you don't accept that the world has things to show to your kids, then don't have kids, you will hurt them.

So what? breast aren't source of any sort of confusion nor trauma. really young kids feed from it. And without libido you can put as much tits in their face as you want it's not going to create anything in their mind. Unless you actually believe yourself that it's bad even for an adult to see tits. In that case, you have problems. Lots of them.

I usually don't get into these sorts of arguments, but you seem to be missing the point. I would want to control how and when my kids get exposed to sex. You're telling me that a faceless woman in a thong with her tits thrust forward isn't meant to be sexual? Why on earth would I want my kid's first exposure to sex to be that? There's a difference between education and this.

The way the picture is presented isn't really that sexual. It might be used for purpose of sexual stimulation in our culture, but as it is the only context kids will get from it is a less taboo view of nudity which is just fine.

Thanks for turning this into a personal attack on my values and my hypothetical parenting skills. This is the same argument I've seen so many times before whenever the topic of censoring sexual content in children's media comes up. You set up a straw man version of my position that says that children should never be exposed to anything sexual, even though I specifically said the contrary in my first post. Here, I'll quote it for you:

>Parents should make sure talk to their kids about these things, but the only people who should decide when and why those talks happen should be the parents.

Try to actually read it this time.

>>233969
Completely ignoring the idea that less nudity taboo among children is a good thing, the notion that none of the children who watch this show will be mature enough to see a topless woman as a sexual image is ridiculous. At some age, our perception of the human body changes. You have no way of controlling whether or not the children who are exposed to this are all below that age.

Tits aren't sex organs. They are erogenous zones for many women, but so are the earlobes. Toplessness isn't really something that kids need to be "ready for" to deal with--almost 100% of children see their mom's naked tits within like a day of being born. Why is it that you think it is important that parents be allowed to choose the time and the place to say "Hey kids, by the way, you know how you have nipples? So do adult women."

I don't believe in exposing young kids to too much sexual content at too early of an age either, but that kind of thinking is what leads to parents denying their children access to vaccines or proper medicine, or taking their kids out of biology class because it could expose them to ideas they're not ready for yet, like how reproductive systems work or *gasp* the theory of evolution. There was one kid in my class like that, and the fact that the parents lost out on that one should give you an idea.

Its one reason its so out there in other cultures because they know parents will be shit about approaching the issues because it makes them uncomfortable.

Just answer me this: do you feel the same way when you see shirtless men on TV? Should, say, men going surfing be censored on TV so parents can explain to kids that men have nipples before they deal with it?

Jeph Loeb's Ultimates is some of the worst tripe I have ever read in any medium, but that doesn't mean it's OK for me to mock him for anything other than his writing skills. If they start shit first like John Byrne, even then there's still not much point in retaliating.

God I fucking hate it when people say this.

Suppressing the urge to hate someone for their work, and insult that person, is NOT basic human decency, it's something you have to teach yourself not to do. People hate Michael Bay. People hate Stuart Snyder. People hate Mike Scully. If it were "basic human decency" not to, people wouldn't do that, because they would INHERENTLY feel it would be the wrong thing to do. It's an extremely common emotion, and so it's perfectly logical and understandable to hate someone as a person because you feel they ruined something you love, no matter how much you probably shouldn't.

So stop using that stupid fucking condescending phrase as if it's on the same level of shaking someone's hand when you meet them.

Hate is not the same thing as actively going after them, though. THAT'S basic human decency. Just keep going with your life and let a shitty comic go.

Besides, said hate comes out of this sense of ownership over something like Transformers or a TV channel. "That's not MY TF!" "That's not MY Batman!" "They're ruining it with what isn't MY interpretation of the character!". Its something they feel because fuck damn they put too much stock into something. Like they're the gatekeepers of some multi million dollar corprorate IPs and they're doing things without their permission.

A moral system is formed by the environment around the conscience. You're not obligated to feel wrong about doing something without repercussion. Going for the extreme, its like a child soldier not feeling any qualms about killing because thats all they've ever known.

It's normal to be upset at people who mishandle things you love, as long as you keep your expression of that anger to yourself. There's nothing wrong with being upset at how Jeph Loeb ruined Ultimate Marvel forever, or at David Goyer for his inability to write decent dialogue or do basic Googling on the things he complains about, and I agree only the most self-righteous stuck up snob would believe that people have no right to feel some degree of hate or strong emotion over something that terrible.

What is basic human decency however is the part where I don't actually go and send Loeb hatemail or tell him he should stop writing comics on his own website or post on messageboards about how he's a hack who needs to stop crying over his dead son or some of the other equally shitty things people have actually said about him. From all accounts Loeb is a super nice guy, but if he to start acting like Uwe Boll and call everyone who dislikes his work a piece of shit who deserves to die, then I would be more justified in calling him an asshole on top of a terrible writer. But even then you gotta have some standards, and actively going on the warpath against someone because I didn't like what they did with something I liked isn't a part of them.

Well that did not stop me from buying it when I relized that Sophie Campbell is behind this truly outrageous art.

And the problem with the plot is that it's all set up.

But its an issue 1 so what can you do.

Also explains the fuck tons of covers.

The comic and ponies one is pretty hot.

Because I want to ask something.

Kimber bio has "girls" under her loves.

Does that mean what I think it means?

Also to sale other on it here is a look at the Misfits.

Not a huge fan of how she draws the noses, though everything else is pretty good.

Yeah, they confirmed she hooks up with Stormer. Apparently it was a popular 'ship in the show.

Surprised at the clip off all of this. Few months by it was "Gays and Lesbians in children media, maybe in a decade or two." Then it all just start to come down and is picking up speed.

Comics have different rules from TV though. It's a more niche medium with lower production costs that requires an active effort by parents to get in the hands of kids, so you can get away with openly putting things like that in comics quicker than you can in TV. I think the Korra and Steven Universe things were just coincidences, though--cartoons take too long for one to have inspired the other, unless Bryke and Rebecca Sugar discussed it before their shows aired.

But theyre not the only depictions of such in western kids media, though. Not to say it prevalent either, but its clearly something many people in the industry want to actively fight for. Would it be cool if showrunners talked to eachother? Yeah totes. Is it likely? ...mm, probably not.

Clarence beat them to it by a while, though it was moderately censored. More that there was probably some sort of relaxation in the rules for what could and couldn't be depicted at the very top of the line, then when the studios got wind of it they all figured it was time for something like that to show up.

Production has been wanting to push forward for a while now its just executives are really squeamish or are known for being so that kept show runners from bringing it up. Its why while they kicked the idea around they didn't approach the network about Korra getting together with Asami till book 4 of the series because they had the idea they'd be shot down from the start. And even though this is happening in a comic Jem is a property that is clearly aimed toward children and so that is surprising how quickly things are starting to appear in that market when it was considered "too adult" material just a few years back.

Maybe it was response, last time many of them tried something was when the moral righteous groups still had a lot of sway. Then after the lack of blow back from gay couples and lesbian parents to the fount of Support of Korra and Asami being a first bisexual couple in a kids show. I do hope things are changing for the better across all the media kids have.

Were there any complaints from moral guardian groups raised about Ruby and Sapphire? I can't remember, although even if there was anything major the showrunners have the excuse of saying they're aliens who don't have genders and may as well be robots doing the clangclang.

There's no such group. The whole "soccer moms" is a shitty boogeyman that haven't been a thing for decade. Sure, you get angry people on twitter from time to time, but moral groups and other organized stuff is a faint memory from the past.

Well point is there used to be such and there would have even been negative press about it as well with some yahoo talking about "child corruption" and such garbage.

There still is but that kinda blather is now regulated mainly to the blogs which act more as an echo chamber than a soapbox.

Then you really gotta wonder why civil rights for LGBT peeps would be so fought against these days.
But thats besides the point.

Jem is a good comic.
I'll be following that stuff.

Hmmm...

>Also 80's as fuck
Yeah I dont think so.
And comixologi gives it a 12+ rating.

Anyway, I know in my heart that Chromdome and Rewind are only a couple so James Roberts can do this:

While they're not as influential these days, groups like the Parent Television Council and American Family Association used to hold a ton of sway in the 90s and early 00s. Granted, LGBT seemed to be lower on their list of priorities than things like sex, nudity, and blasphemy, but their power seems to have waned around the same time that the LGBT movement really kicked into sway. Plus you've still got obnoxious blowhards like One Million Moms around.

might be useful in all those shitty super tangential threads on /co/ where comics are only vaguely noticeable in the OP pic, then it devolve to feminism/ecelebs/sexuality shit.
