ugh

"The CBSA then determined he should be deported to India, a country he has never been to." WOW. If any of you think Canada is still a liberal and progressive paradise, THINK AGAIN.

Tim Schafer responds to people reacting negatively to him posting an Anita Sarkeesian video, while simultaneously gaining so much of my respect.

You should really be watching Cowboy Bebop right now.

Art School consumption of graphic media:

Wow these proportions are so bad this artist is terrible how do they get work we should all redline these to show how much better we could do them if they hired people like us

Professional Life consumption of graphic media:

"Poor dude probably had to draw like eighty panels that day, I hope he didn’t have to spend his whole weekend doing weird revisions marketing came up with"

While this is very much true, that doesn’t mean these artist are critique resistant. Yes industry deadlines, last minute changes can and do often effect the final product; however mediocrity does deserve to be called out.

Please don’t try to use this as a “constructive” argument to defend sailor moon crystal.

Her point is that mediocrity in an mass-produced artform like comic books and animation is usually not indicative of the artist’s skill, but instead the budget and time constraints of a project (along with whatever the higher-ups want).

Like, have you ever worked on a big project where you had to draw a million things within a short deadline? I have, and boy it really stinks having to set in stone a bunch of terrible drawings because you don’t have time to fix them.

How I feel when I see people heavily critique inbetween frames seen only for 1/24th of a second

I hope there’s a special circle in hell reserved for people looking to score internet outrage points by inventing negative stories about indie creators without fact checking to see if they’re accurate or something the creator actually said or not and spread them with commentary like “if you want to play their game/read their comic/listen to their music make sure you torrent it, don’t give them your money!”

Because that kind of shit will get passed around and believed for years after it’s started and disproven, and the person who started it is guaranteed to get away basically consequence free.

isn’t there a part of the bible where god gets mad at a fig tree for not having any figs on it and curses the fig tree?

yeah there legit is that’s 100% true

Yes.



Oh my god


Ehhhh, hate to be a party pooper, but that photo is showing a really simplified re-telling that totally misses the point of the story. In the King James version (probably the most commonly accepted translation by English-speaking Christians), the same verses read:

18 Now in the morning as he returned into the city, he hungered.
19 And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away.
20 And when the disciples saw it, they marvelled, saying, How soon is the fig tree withered away!
21 Jesus answered and said unto them, Verily I say unto you, If ye have faith, and doubt not, ye shall not only do this which is done to the fig tree, but also if ye shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; it shall be done.
22 And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.

The incident is a teaching moment for his disciples, a lesson in casting out hypocrisy (keep in mind that just a day before, Jesus was literally flipping tables in a temple that was selling merchandise) and having faith to do all things. You know, the usual stuff Jesus teaches.
So, no, Jesus doesn’t actually hate figs. That sign’s still pretty great, though!
