Zeality:  Having a bad day, Fearless Leader?

Thought:  Honestly, I'm agreeing with you with the homework thing.  Personally, though, my thought is that the entire school system is horribly, horribly broken here in Washington state.  They don't teach for kids to learn anything anymore.  They teach to the WASL, the state's beloved standardized test.  And why?  Because passing the WASL is a graduation requirement, and half the students that take it won't pass.  I hated that fact as a whole, but I particularly resented how it nerfed the high school's english and literature courses.  Matt's statement in this MacHall sums up my views on the whole matter better than I ever could.  The people teaching schools these days aren't teachers, they're frauds.  The state school committee is a fraud, and it needs to be changed.

Okay, we've established that I hate High School.  Know what else I hate?  The fact that my finacial aid is based on my GPA.  I need a 2.0; I've never gotten over 1.8 thus far.  Hope this quarter is different...

Quote from: Dak'kon the Pariah
Balance in All Things.

...Funny thing is, I've never played Torment.  Read the novel (which was so-so), but never played the game.  And that phrase is one of the greatest philosophies I have in my life.

Anyway, we're drifting off-topic here.  So, Grey, you actually making any progress on this idea of yours?

] because the anatomy is so fucked up at that point. I mean, if you can draw a body, why the hell would you put up a dexter's lab head up on there? why not even try to make it smaller.
So? Plenty of animation styles exaggerate bodies and features. That's simply part of the animation style. Does the style truly suffer from it? Is it that big a distraction?

I'm not necessarily defending it per se. I'm just trying to figure out why a certain aspect of the animation style is so bothersome. It's not like they're exaggerating breast sizes, after all. (There you'd have me complaining.)
It's just... annoying to look at. I guess cause its so easy to draw a normal sized head, and they just bungled it.

Everyone draws stuff differently, Gray.  I mean, I tend to go freehand sketching, but that doesn't make me Yoshitako Amano.

Besides, you won't have to look at it much longer.  Season 4 (currently airing) is the last season, and it's almost over.

Stephen Chow of "Shaolin Soccer" and "Kung Fu Hustle" fame is the producer, so this might actually have a nice lighthearted, not-too-serious humorous tone. Especially if it's really an adaptation of the DB initial series and not the more violent/ridiculously-exaggerating DBZ.

Let's hope so.  Gods, I could go for something light right now...

What I said was not meant to be an insult or critique. But merely verification as in "Did that really just pop in your head?" or was the case that you were thinking about strange montages the go well together.
Actually, I have the song on my Ipod, and I was listening in on the lyrics for, I dunno, inspiration for an image, when I just put two and two together and was like "..... that actually works."

And lo, doth the cheap neon bulb go on above his head!

We all have moments like that.  Mine just tend more towards my writing than anything else.

And sure, it's an odd thought, but so what, guys? Quit acting like you haven't had tons of thoughts like that yourselves. Not necessarily this identical thought nor would you necessarily share the thought, but you've had them.

When I have those kinds of thoughts, I start to worry, personally.  It works, yes, but it's one of those "From deep left field" ideas that occasionally manages to scare the Holy Bejeezus out of me.

Grey, some advice:  GET YOUR HEAD CHECKED.  It seems to be working like mine is. I know for a fact that my lucidity is little more than a cheap tissue paper facade, so when your head works like mine....*shudders*
