Taste the awesomeness. Taste it.
If you use YouTube, you need to know this.
You’ve heard all these rumblings about Net Neutrality over the past several months. Let’s get real: this is about controlling online video. It is estimated that by 2017, video content will account for 80-90% of all global Internet traffic.
This isn’t just about not being able to binge-watch a series on Netflix. It’s about the future of online video as we know it.
Whether your YouTube channel is home to daily vlogs, short films, or just that one video from when the cinnamon challenge seemed like a good idea, you’re a video creator. Your content and comments help shape this community. Let’s keep it that way.
Net Neutrality means that your YouTube videos reach people at the same speed as clips from last night’s episode of the Tonight Show. It means a level playing field for video creators looking to reach an audience. But new Net Neutrality rules could mess that up.
Here’s the deal: Telecommunications companies already charge us to access the Internet through our homes and our phones. New FCC rules could allow them to also charge content providers (like YouTube, Netflix, and even PBS) for access to our eyeballs. It could create a fast lane for Jimmy Fallon’s clips, and slow lane for your YouTube videos.
It is really important that the FCC understands that online video creators care about Net Neutrality. Even if you’ve only ever uploaded ONE VIDEO, you are a creator and you have a voice.
If you can, please add your channel to our petition. We’ll deliver this to the FCC in September and demonstrate that the online video community cares about this issue.
Way back when, when My Honey Pie and I were working on Murder U together, she didn’t like 2 of the character model I designed and asked if I could redo them. I did and she drew them that way.
I’ve been looking for some of my missing original notes and character design sketches for a while now but haven’t found them. I do however have the original doodles of these 2 characters, as well as their redesigns, and have decided I prefer my original thoughts better.
Again, updating regularly has been difficult to say the least for various reasons, but a new page is coming sooner rather than later.
Please hang in there, and thank you to those who have.
Neo-Assyrian Head of Pazuzu, Circa 8th-7th Century BC
Pazuzu was an Assyrian and Babylonian demonic god of the 1st millennium BC. He normally has a dog-like face like here, and where his body is depicted he has a scaly torso, a snake-headed penis, the talons of a bird and usually wings.
Although Pazuzu was a malevolent force, his image was used on amulets to ward off his enemy Lamashtu, a female demon that preyed on newborn babies and their mothers. The amulet was either worn by the mother or child and larger ones were placed above their bed on a wall.
His legend was adapted and used in The Exorcist films.
It’s just so freakin’ easy once I get set up to say, “Fuck it I’ll have a coupla rounds of Titanfall!” that turns into a few hours every night and also all weekend.
I will absolutely try harder to get more done and up this Sunday. I appologize for my procrastination, typos, and horrid spelling…
Elsa Lanchester in The Bride of Frankenstein (1935)
Fun facts about “The Bride” :
- "The Bride", the most obscure of Universal Studios’ Classic Monsters, is on screen for less than five minutes and is the only "Classic Monster" never to have killed anyone.
- Elsa Lanchester’s shock hairdo was held in place by a wired horsehair cage.
- Elsa Lanchester was only 5’4” but for the role was placed on stilts that made her 7’ tall. The bandages were placed so tightly on her that she was unable to move and had to be carried about the studio and fed through a straw.
- Elsa Lanchester said that her spitting, hissing performance was inspired by the swans in Regent’s Park, London. “They’re really very nasty creatures,” she said. (x)
I LOVE this scene and how the Bride was played here, as well as the editing.
There’s a 3 day weekend coming up and I’m really looming forward to getting another page up. This page, 11 I believe, will introduce the rest of the main cast of Murder U!!
I’m so excited on account of I’ve lived with thes characters in my head and in little doodles and scetches for so many years that they’re fambily to me!! I’m really excited and nervous to I produce them and lay them on the world, hopefully next weekend!
Really the main reason I take so long to update is I find it very difficult to work duologue onto the pages with AutoDesk and I can’t remember how to do it with Photoshop.
But with this 3 day weekend coming g up, I should be able to get the next pages duologue in and that page updated.
