Cackling in 3 Frames Per Second – Robots Root 30 June 2018

Now you too can have a laughing Prince Adam figure of your very own. Memetic!

I’m done with my Spring conventions, and now in Washington on a short vacation with the younglings. Here’s a blast of interesting somethings over the last few weeks!

  • Wonder Woman + George Orwell? You decide!
  • Everyone’s talking about that Black Manta helmet, but I’m all about Orm’s sweet hairstyle.
  • Apologists and recontextualists aside, these comments nauseated me.
  • If nothing else, Red Notice sure has an eye-catching cast.
  • You too can build an Alexa-enabled L3-37. But… should you?
  • Preacher 3 is only a week away!
  • Incredibles 2 was a hoot… and the weekend box office sure seems to indicate people realized it. It does look decidedly familiar… by design.
  • Here’s a great video of Andy Serkis discussing mocap’s evolution
  • Here’s an interesting article positing that Shazam should be the path to the future of the DCEU.
  • As someone who works in a small, pressure-cooker environment without HR and with unconventional, lets say, communication from time to time, I’ve been following the discussion on workplace abuse in Hollywood (a mechanism for talking about it not in Hollywood, of course. ie. the real world)… the sexual abuse and sexual politics are very obviously evil, but the verbal abuse has been something that creators in the entertainment industry have been forgiven for (as long as they are ‘successful’ and ‘auteurs’, my emphasis… on the one hand, some people need to be more prepared and clear about the hostile environments they are getting into, and on the other hand, people should be respectful, or there should be consequences. Interesting debate.
  • Everyone’s laughing about how they isolated Iron Fist knowingly. I just loved that they included Colleen Wing!

 

More to come!

 

Youve Got Something On Your Arrowhead 10 Mar 2016

I know we talked about the new trailer in the other post, but this is one of my favorite details…

In other news…

1. Well At Least There’s That: I don’t know if the first Lonely Island film, Popstar, will be funny. I can’t tell anymore. It doesn’t really feel funny. And it’s a strange choice, when Entourage ate itself with seriousness and ended up being a farce. But I will say: any movie with Pink as a unicorn tamer is at least a thing that is happening. A Perdment, as we say at Robot-Kraken.

3. Ready Player Three: A long-awaited upgrade to the PS4 has just launched, for free, that allows users to remotely play off of their console from other devices in the same network. This is an example of the kind of feature that previously would have held no value for me, and now sounds amazing. The private access to my living room TV is quite limited, and the kids don’t get access to games at their age by my lovely wife’s request… and she’s watching shows most nights. So that all means that gaming for me is relegated to a night a week I set aside, after everyone is in bed. Now, if I want, I can hop on the PS4 from the Cloffice and have at it.
Probably wont.
Arting to be done.
But I COULD.

5. The Right of the People to Less Rubbery FX Creatures: The mainstream media is starting to become more aware of a lot of stuff those that nerd out already know. Such as this unauthorized reedit of New Hope, sans Lucas-directed meddling.
