I re-blog things I like and post a few original things from time to time.
I also fancy myself a writer.
Wow I haven’t felt this angry since my emotionally unstable High School days. Waiting alone at the bus stop after a far too long day at work, some douche nozzel cunt punks decided that I was the perfect target for their night of egging strangers out of the evil depths of their rotten fucking hearts. Two eggs thrown, one missed by a lot and the second grazed my arm before splattering on the bus shelter behind me. So technically I didn’t get any egg on me, but the desire to stomp their stupid faces in until they turned crimson and goopy still remains. As it happens I only managed a middle finger before they sped away laughing manically.
So I just read Saga #22. Let’s just say that the emotional roller coaster is kicked into high gear with this issue and while terribly upsetting it’s written amazingly well in regards to how well it captures how people interact with each other.
James Lopez is a veteran Disney animator (The Lion King, Pocahontas, Paperman) who is trying to raise funding for his primarily hand-drawn short film, Hullabaloo, with hopes of eventually finding a studio to fund a full-length version.
Hullabaloo is the story of Veronica Daring, a brilliant young scientist who returns home from an elite finishing school to find her father—the eccentric inventor Jonathan Daring—missing without a trace! The only clue left behind points Veronica toward Daring Adventures, an abandoned amusement park used by her father to test his fantastical steam-powered inventions. There she discovers a strange girl named Jules, a fellow inventor who agrees to help Veronica in locating her missing father and discovering the secrets of his work.
In addition to helping save 2D animation, Hullabaloo aims to encourage girls to explore science and adventure. The film’s two protagonists are both young women and both scientists who use their intellect, wits, and courage to fight greed and corruption. We hope that Veronica Daring and her friend Jules will serve as positive role models for girls of all ages and encourage them to get excited about science, engineering, and sci-fi.
