inhuman update
(and inks on DA like normal)

still running behind schedule by a day, though this WOULD have been up sunday evening...if not for the fact that it spontaniously decided to be hotter than the freakin sun around here. the studio is on the second floor and on the south side of the house too, so that means it gets a little oven-like towards the afternoon on hot days. i had the page done by 2, but the heat sent me crawling for cover about the same time. my apologies, i'm just not adjusted to it feeling like it's in the 90s just yet.

not a whole lot else to report this week? i've been feeling kinda down, some Bad Things happened on the internet. let me go on record and say a thing? if someone is out there being xenophobic of any given group thinking it's super duper funny? i don't care how famous they are, how well known their comic is, or how much they donate to charity. being all LOL THAT GROUP ISN'T PEOPLE ROFL is bullshit. also publishing private emails to "illustrate" that you're soooooooo wacky and clever for making fun of these minority groups is bullshit. i'm pretty fucking done with penny arcade, is what i'm driving at.

another thing i want to say? PUAs ("pick up artists") are super gross. if you want to be a PUA you are gross. if you think PUAs are wise you are gross. please check yourself in to the nearest grossness recovery clinic and stop being gross. if you really want a ladyfriend you know what they super ultra like? respect. the end. do not write books about hurting or disrespecting ladies. do not fund kickstarters for books about hurting or disrespecting ladies. condemn all PUAs to drown in their own urine, and that is all. kickstarter to drown PUAs in urine even. okay i'm done i swear.

still playing animal crossing. i think we have to dogsit for a few weeks starting this weekend but i'm not sure. this heat sucks. and we're out of coffee.
not_fun: YAY DRUGS (cial drugs rainbow)
good morning space cadets.

let me talk to you a moment about a tv show i've been dutifully (and regretfully) watching. it's about to wrap up its second season.


this tv show is called "the new version of thundercats" and hey, i won't lie, the art design is really nice. the animation isn't too shabby i guess. the series started off with a LOT of promise. but then they did something stupid. they wouldn't meet the first episode writer's pay demands, and fired him, and hired some absolutely atrocious writers in his place. the series has been in a steady downward spiral since that point. it's almost painful to watch. the writers have no idea what they're doing. liono has a cathardic revelation that he must prove himself as king and stop being jealous of his brother about once every three episodes and never changes his behavior, in spite of this.

"blundercats" about sums it up, really.

the fact of the matter is that i wouldn't be writing this except for one thing: the new thundercats fandom? is quite active on twitter. and last week i watched them go biz-zonkers crying that this was the "best episode yet" and "taught the dangers of drugs" and how "deep" the show was. i was extremely skeptical. but i thought maybe the writers were throwing me a bone, here, and actually did a propaganda episode!

alas, this was not the case. it was just a lame throw-away side gag where tygra accidentally drinks a potion and goes all lovey dovey telling liono his feelings and picking flowers and cuddling catterpillers and shit. there were really no negative repercussions, no lecture, and it wasn't the focus of the episode at all. i found myself sitting there shouting
REALLY? REALLY NEW THUNDERCATS FANDOM? YOU THINK THIS IS PROPAGANDA?? REALLY?? REALLY. REALLY???

so i had to bust out my screencaps.

i know what you're thinking. "but icarus, you already did the thundercats propaganda episode!" I SURE DID. FOR SEASON THREE. the original thundercats had not one, but TWO propaganda episodes! and you know me. propaganda collection is my favourite hobby, next to drawing comics about emotionally crippled aliens.

join me, won't you?


season 1, episode 9. 315 images. )


so there you go. the first thundercats propaganda, though the second one i posted. this one had subtler undertones relating to the drug (silky fruit) causing strife and danger for everyone, but in the end kind of had a more realistic solution to it in tygra just finding the willpower to stop on his own. part of me thinks this is because of how early in the series this was, because when you look at the era of propaganda between the 60s and 70s, it generally has the moral of "be careful" instead of "DRUGS ARE EVIL EVIL EVIL ANYONE WHO DOES THEM IS EVILLLLL"

naturally that all changed by season 3. but yeah.

TAKE THAT, NEW THUNDERCATS.
YOU THINK YOU CREATED AN EPISODE WITH HINTS ABOUT DRUG ABUSE?
FUCK YOU, YOU DIDN'T. IN FACT, INSTEAD, YOU HAD LIONO TRY TO DRUG A WOMAN INTO "LIKING" HIM. SO FUCK YOU. SOME HERO YOU'RE WRITING LIONO INTO, NEW THUNDERCATS.

I HOPE YOU GET CANCELLED AND BURIED AT SEA. WHERE NO ONE WILL EVER FIND YOUR HORRIBLE SCRIPTS EVER AGAIN.
