I don’t think I actually posted this here!
Some Daft Punk I did halfway through last year.
Done with Ink on card.
i have pretty high standards for a piece of trash
I’m not even going to attempt to gif this. Watch it. Now. 15 pendulums, not interacting with one another, each with a slightly different time for a full swing.
Results in gorgeousness.
In case you missed it
For two days, we surveyed the fan presence for the narrative podcast Welcome to Night Vale here on tumblr. Commonplace Books’ horror/mystery series follows the broadcasts of Cecil Palmer, a radio host in the town of Night Vale. Cecil’s dynamic with his boyfriend Carlos is a frequent feature on the show and has been a point of contention with homophobic bloggers on the site before, but now it seems WTNV’s diverse cast and progressive stance has attracted a new kind of scumbag attitude.
So, is the WTNV fandom community racist?
We asked the tags if they thought the community that formed around Night Vale had turned unwelcoming towards people of color and interpretations of figures on the show as characters of color — and, specifically, if they’d seen accepted white supremacist and overtly racist attitudes in what should be safe fan spaces. For a show as progressive and accepting as Night Vale is, the results were upsetting.
Preview for next week’s episode: Lion 2 The Movie!
I can’t wait ( ^▽^)
a series of Argentine comics first published in 1992, drawn by Carlos Meglia and written by Carlos Trillo for the Italian comics magazine Skorpio (Eura Editoriale). The series first appeared in Spanish in November 1993.
Why was it forgotten?: TOO DIFFERENT TO BE MARKETABLE.
We kick off our very first ‘Good Forgotten Cartoon’ with something you’ve probably never heard of in your life.
Hell, I never even heard of it until I saw a thread on 4chan’s /co/ board where I had to wait for close to 2 hours before somebody dropped the name.
Let me just say, from the bottom of my heart; THIS SERIES IS FREAKING AWESOME!
Let me give you the basic gist of the plot: a Nazi scientist flees Germany after the end of World War 2 to continue his work in genetic engineering, and construct a series of cyborgs called Cybers. One of the cyborgs, named Cybersix escapes and flees to America where she adopts the secret identity of a male high school teacher.
By day she’s a teacher, but by night a hero who indirectly saves her city from the minions of her creator who come to seek her out. She destroys them in order to feed on their life energy called “Sustenence” so she can continue living.
So let me run this by you again; we have a transgender cyborg anti-hero fighting nazi robots in the 1990s. Is that not the most amazing idea you’ve ever heard?!
Not only is the concept cool but the actual content manages to measure up. Sure, the cartoon has to take a few liberties; like toning down some of the violence to make it suitable for television. Of course, it also ran into the misfortune of being a dark cartoon based on a rather unknown intellectual property so no one really knew what to make of it.
All and all, the cartoon definitely has it’s legacy, and though being the first of the good forgotten cartoons, it definitely gets the Cartoon Badlands Highest Recommendation
- in 2000, the creators of Cybersix filed a lawsuit against James Cameron and Fox Broadcasting Company, claiming that Cameron’s 2000 television series Dark Angel plagiarized Cybersix
- The method by which Cybersix obtains sustenance is different among the series’ incarnations. In the comic book, Cybersix sucks sustenance directly from the neck of those she hunts as if she were a vampire. in the animated series, Von Reichter’s creations carry glowing vials of Sustenance with them, which Cybersix would open and drink.
- the series received positive critical reception from the Pulcinella Awards
- Cybersix first aired in Canada on Teletoon then appeared in other countries like the U.S.A. on Fox Kids, and Kids Station in Japan.
- The title sequence and closing creditsfeatured lyrics written by Robert Olivier, which were sung by jazz vocalist Coral Egan.
- Cybersix is voiced by veteran voice actress, Cathy Weseluck
Such an amazing cartoon. Probably one of the best science-fiction animations I’ve ever seen in my life.
Until all you’ve had is a few bad quality episodes and streams spread across youtube and the rest of the web but fear not Badlanders!
Discotek Media is releasing a dvd box set this year! Please, pick it up when you can, you will not regret it!
And if you’re able to find the Cybersix comics, whether they be physical or digital, read them. Just read them.
