I saw some "expectation vs reality" meme about independent artists and half of it was about managing a social media presense and making money. I kinda find "do or die" attitude of the art community to be kinda toxic and can turn off people who are new to it. Not everything has to be about "building your brand" Just relax and have fun, and if you want to take it more seriously, it's your choice. Creativity should be encouraged, not fame.

It's too bad that Social Media has made that mentality even worse with their algorithms basically forcing people to strain themselves.

Also, animation community needs to stop telling indie animators to pitch their webseries to some crummy TV channel. Unless It's a pilot (Even then, just ask about their plans), more often then not the creator will refuze to pitch it to a studio out of fear they'll loose creative control. It's the reason why sites like Newgrounds and YouTube to an extent exist along with independent websites.

A common thing used in flash back in the day was tweening, which is one of the reasons why flash has a stigma these days. When I got Flash CC in a few years ago I tried that and It was a pain in the ass.

Then again, by that time, tweening was an outdated technique that was mostly used to keep file sizes down in the dial up era. Every flash animation made after 2007 that I saw employed frame by frame (increasingly as the years went on) unless they needed to keep consistent with the older animations of some series.

Daft Punk just broke up... damn. I think they were the ones who properly introduced me to electronic music, their music played quite a bit on whatever radio station my parents listened to back in like... early 10s in the car.

All good things must come to an end, I don't think there will ever be a band like them.

I'm right now procrastinating and browsing TVTropes and I found out they replaced David Hayder with some other guy I can't remember the name of I havent played any Metal Gear games but I can't imagine anyone playing Snake other than Hayder. Then there's Bowser. Kenny James is the best Bowser my opinion is law /s.

Honestly, I've never liked the Gamecube era Bowser. He's a demon king, he should sound intimidating. Super Mario Sunshine brought an end to the retro era Mario and brought in the modern era imo and one of the changes is the king getting an actual VA, who I'm pretty sure they wrote his character around his new voice. Same with Kenny James in Galaxy where Bowser mostly went back to his 80s-90s characterization.

I've been addicted to Half Life. The game's kinda broken but it's still enjoyable.

Also, I've been addicted to the memes using the voice lines. I think it's the "crust" on the audio that does it for me
