do u guys understand how creepy the pledge of allegiance is though like every day when ur a kid everybody just chants how great america is every morning it’s creepy
You do that every morning???
is this a real thing i thought that was just in the simpsons
Wait, other countries don’t do this.
I just realized how strange this might seem.
I was really sick at high school one day and during homeroom when we got announcements and had to the the pledge, I didn’t move to stand. I kept my head on the desk. We had a sub who flipped her shit that I didn’t stand or say the pledge. “STAND UP!” she yelled and I said “no” with my face in the desk. Then she started shouting again and I lifted my head and interrupted her. “I have a 102 degree fever, I have a test next period, and I’ve said the pledge EVERY DAY since kindergarten. I think I can skip a day” then put my head back down.
I never realized how fucked up it was to stand up and worship the american flag every day like that. Isn’t that something that like communist countries do—oh.
Same thing here since kindergarten till highschool (so, from ages 3 till 17/18). It wasn’t done in a classroom, though, but in the schoolyard where the flag pole was, with everyone lined up by class, and you had to sing while the flag was being raised.
It wasn’t the pledge, but an anthem (Aurora), but the sentiment remains the same.
every post defending frozen is so bad like im not saying people cant like it or want to defend it but every argument ive seen so far is just saying the female protagonists look like rapunzel because animating is hard and thats literally the biggest load of shit i have ever read
Every Miyazaki characters faces look alike, and no one ever had a problem with that.
and that’s just for one character
You stupid fucking asshole. The reason “because animating is hard” is a 100% legitimate excuse. Have YOU ever tried modelling a character in a 3D rendering program and animating it? I think fucking not. So you know what the biggest load of shit /I/ have ever read is? Your fucking ignorance.
im fucking laughing have you ever done it because judging by your comment im guessing not modeling isnt animating its part of the process in making a movie but its not animating get your head out of your ignorant asshole and smell the daises nerd
Have any of you bitchnippletitties ever played a goddamn video game? Do you see how 3D modeling has advanced? Do you remember that Pixar and Disney have some of the most talented people in the world working for them?
Them bitches look like Rapunzel because they know that’s the fucking formula for modern cartoon beauty and don’t wanna take any risks. Merchandise needs to be everywhere and sold everywhere. They know this face will sell. We’re gonna see a lot more of it.
I mean come on, some of you guys are seriously devaluing 3D animation, and I say that as someone who’s actually looking a bit forward to Frozen but you can’t deny they could have been more original with the character designs.
I mean, even Rapunzel and Mother Gothel looked like completely different people.
I’m okay with Elsa and Anna looking alike because they’re sisters, but they could have been a bit more inspired with the designs. Let’s be honest here.
Saying that the characters look the same because 3D modeling is hard is a huge disservice to 3D modelers.
The problem is that since the beginning there’s this very narrow concept of beauty that female characters need to fill. Fuck, I have a book called “Creating Characters with Personality” by Disney animator Tom Bancroft and the entire chapter that’s dedicated to ladies is called “Making (Beautiful) Women” and it goes on about how to make women who look good. And the book specifically says that the ideal cartoon woman has big eyes, a button nose and small lips. Sounds familiar? That’s because he just described every single female Disney protagonist. Meanwhile, every other chapter of the book - INCLUDING CHAPTERS ABOUT ANIMALS - is all about making the characters interesting. And this is a dude who’s been working at Disney for more than fifteen years, and this was a book I was required to read in school.
I mean look at this shit:
Look at how typically beautiful and generic the woman is and how different and interesting the men are. That’s not a coincidence. That’s a result of being told throughout your entire life that men are meant to be interesting and women are meant to be beautiful.
And I say this all as someone who’s a 3D generalist, so I’ve dabbed in modeling and rendering (and have been told I’m the best modeler of my company so I think I know what I’m talking about.)
So this excuse that the characters all look the same because modeling is hard HAS GOT TO DIE. It’s not that it’s hard, it’s that their UNWILLING to go outside the box of what they consider to be an ideal female beauty.
Also “Have YOU ever tried modelling a character in a 3D rendering program and animating it?” Uh, no in fact I’ve never tried modeling a character in a rendering program because rendering is a process that comes waaaay after modeling AND animating that is meant to generate images/frames you can take into a compositing program like Nuke to put together the layers of background, shadow, characters etc that will make up your scene. The rendering program you choose will usually not affect the way you model your character so??? Like no offense but I don’t think you know what you’re talking about. :x
