Cool little documentary piece about a key animator who created a lot of the mainstream anime opening style.




A rather interesting video on a historical staple food for people such as sailors or soldiers for a long time


Gotta love lithium ion battery fires


Speaking of creaky voice, there's this video from the other day that briefly visualizes it as it occurs in Danish, before moving on to [ð̠˕ˠ] (which is not actually a [ð]).


Nice Youtube animation


reminds me of that one fighting game character with awesome face, a top hat, and a cane


like videos like these


Nice video


fate of the west



??? What is the fate of the west? Making comics?

I'm not interested in comics but I have seen videos like that about them on Youtube. I think the difference between the industries of comics and Manga and the follow on effects that has are interesting.

The Manga industry is fairly similar to the industry of writing and publishing books. An Artist has an idea and if a publisher likes it they will publish it.

But the comic industry is a lot different to that. It's generally a publisher deciding on the project and hiring artists to then work on it and they don't treat IPs as a series of works by an author but as a brand.
So what ends up happening is you get these huge well known Characters that have been around for decades that have had a myriad of different people working on them over time, creating different versions of the character and different stories with them that often are not in continuity with the other versions. It's like if the publisher of Lord of the Rings decided to make a new book set after the Lord of the rings with no input from Tolkein, kept going with that for decades under several new authors, ret-conning everything Tolkien wrote into oblivion and then deciding one day to reset the Lord of the rings series and now Tolkien's Middle earth is no longer the current cannon one.
It's absurd, Tolkien's world is Tolkien's world. Just like Hunter X Hunter is the property of Togashi Yoshihiro, sure, the nature of that does mean we are probably never going to see it finished but people accept that and I don't think anybody would want somebody else coming in and taking it from him. Yet that's just the norm for comics.

It even occurs in this smaller indie comic in this video, there are numerous versions made and he says they follow different stories and are not connected to each other with numerous different artists having worked on different editions and even the original creators don't seem to care about sticking to one cannon story and world.

This all seems to cause multiple problems. Firstly, the west doesn't care about anybodies property and is more than happy to do what they want with it such as what happened to the LOTR Amazon series and games.
But secondly, because of the way the industry is set up there doesn't seem to be much room for new material, everything revolves around established brands and there isn't the same mechanism for authors to create their own stories.
However because of the way it works in Japan we get a huge amount of different stories by people with their own ideas who can be given a place to published it and be given the freedom to own the world they create. This follows through to the anime industry as of course most anime is just animated manga. The West could never create an animation industry to compete because it lacks the industry to create the source material to begin with.

For what it's worth, most of the money in American comics has traditionally been in comic strips, published in newspapers and magazines and then compiled into books later. The heavily episodic format encourages simpler, more accessible stories, and it's low-risk enough from a publisher's perspective that they're much more willing to try something new.


Or kuso 1 panel political/current event cartoons that still havent died off yet


I include those among comic strips, because they are/were usually printed along-side them.

It's worth noting that webcomics are an extension of traditional print comic strips, so a lot of the latter's cliches are kept undead thanks to the internet and social media.

Is that true? It seems that there would not be much money in those strips. I looked Garfield up on Wikipedia and it did not say much about profits, just that it sold from $750 Million to $1 Billion in Merchandise in 2004. Which is a lot but it also says it's the most syndicated comic strip ever, others probably are not as successful.

But also it says
>While retaining creative control and being the only signer, Davis now only writes and usually does the rough sketches. Since the late 1990s most of the work has been done by long-time assistants Brett Koth and Gary Barker. Inking and coloring work is done by other artists, while Davis spends most of the time supervising production and merchandising the characters

So it's still different than the standard comic book industry as he is still the one managing it even after 44 years.





I've mentioned it before, but it's really weird to think of there being live stormchasing on youtube. There's a tornado outbreak in the Southeast US and you can see people covering it live. I didn't do any research so I don't know what channel is good, but here's an example. Normally you need to actually live around such storms to see this kind of thing live on local stations, so people outside of it might find it interesting.

The cat does not oppose the human, for they know their wishes mean nothing to them. But to one of their own kind, they forcefully rebuke. To an animal, might makes right.



DUCK SONG FOUR JUST CAME OUT TWO HOURS AGO! This is a historic moment!



Five guys is more affordable than McDonalds if you have 5 guys!


If you have seventy and five guys, you can build a dragon ship and pillage coastal villages. That's even more affordable.


Got recommended something good for once.

he didn't take the mcdonalds app into account
I frequently bring home 2 mcdoubles (buy 1 get 1 for 1, so roughly 4.50), a 20piece nugget+2 fries (6bucks), and 2 drinks (3 bucks) for my brother and I for roughly 15 bucks post tax...


*pokes you in the tum*




miku fans a bunch of animals


great one


I think a fair amount of people have seen this recommended or linked to them by others, but it hasn't been linked here! I watched all of it over a few days and it was pretty good. It's nice to see him doing voiced videos again because from what I understand he was overwhelmed by the success/viralness of the A Press video and kind of went away for a while. The fact that he did video with his voice while knowing it will receive a lot of attention means he conquered that anxiety. His idea of monetization with the part at 3:37:40 (https://youtu.be/YsXCVsDFiXA?t=13063) is also quite interesting.
TJ "Henry" Yoshi is even in there in the comments with a donation ($50, pretty good) that made me smile.

I also watched this video of his which was more like a programming course and I now know what 'floats' are: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nYDmBdUalgo

Cool stuff.


Gunbuster's so good


Reminded me of this documentary about the New York Times' last printing with linotype machines.


This is 'live' stuff, but I thought I'd link this storm chasing thing. There's potential for a major tornado outbreak in the next few hours. I don't know which live channel is best, so here's the one that has the most viewers. People that far away from this tornado weather might find watching this stuff live interesting.


It's no fun without hearing the sirens in the background and really feeling the tension as mother nature's equivalent of Russian roulette slowly descends from the sky right outside.

It warms my heart to see this stuff. Normally this superchat stuff is associated with youtube celebrities and stuff, but they're raising money to help the victims since it's an official 501k charity thing. And it just keeps flooding in. From the time I took this picture a couple minutes ago it's risen to $22k. Awwww....
(they should find a way to bypass google's cut, though)


Geez, was looking at this on the weather channel this morning and it was a pretty devastating storm. Apparently even turned deadly which is awful. Yeah I don't know how I'd deal with living out in tornado valley, I'd always be worried about losing everything in the span of a bad storm.


Oh dear god, almost two hours of Tetris world record history. Yep, this will help me sleep (in a good way)


Cave Johnson saves the world.


are storms cool?


Yep, that's Montreal


nice comedy


real life creepypasta stuff


This thing is really cool. There's one near me for a reasonable price, but I'm broke. Would absolutely snatch one up if I could.
