And welcome to another addition of "Things That Make Me Smile." Let's start with the obvious here: The Good Place.
My husband majored in philosophy at UT. There are a lot of philosophy jokes in this series. Ultimately, I rank it with Terry Pratchett when it comes to cheering me up and returning my faith in humanity. For the record, on of the things I adore most about the show is that just when you think you know exactly where its headed, it throws a curve ball. Serious props for the comedy writing on this one, folks. That shirt ain't easy.
This next one isn't quite so...let's say nice. [cough] Alex Jones and InfoWars (his conspiracy theory promoting YouTube channel) have been temporarily banned from YouTube. I actually did a little dance. He's caused so much harm, promotes blatant lies, and uses his show to sell overpriced, shitty products. I still don't understand why anyone believes anything he says. It's a scam. Anyway, I'm happy to see him get slapped. Let' hope he gets a permanent ban soon. I'm pretty sure he won't stop claiming shooting survivors are "crisis actors". So, it's a safe bet, if you ask me.
Filed under artwork, check out Cunene. Here's more. And more. (Thanks, Jess!) Also, have a look at Tomer Hanuka's work. I love the dynamic use of color and composition as well as the manga sensibility mixed with German Expressionism. Good stuff.
What else? Invader Zim is coming back with a full length movie, I hear. Also, another of my animation faves is making a comeback. Matt Groening has a new animated project titled Disenchantment. It'll be a Fantasy series.
And that's it for today. I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Mine promises to be very busy. Also, Armadillocon is coming up next weekend. Hope to see some of you there!
