Since Frozen just got released in theaters, I felt the need to reblog a certain thread involving one of Frozen's animators commenting on the "difficulty of animating female characters," including my own two-cents. Translation: I felt the need to call out misogynist bullshit, especially with the excuses that keep piling up.

Speaking of Frozen, has anyone seen it yet?
I thought it was fantastic! I felt it did a great job of retaining that Classic Disney feel with the music, story, and characters while presenting a modern-era Disney animated film.

Also, I LOVED the new Mickey Mouse short, "Get a Horse" playing in front of it.

I haven't seen it yet, though I've heard a lot of good things about it. Despite the controversy, I wanted to see it for myself to judge it on its own merits. I found an article that looks at the other side of a coin, and if it's true, it's comforting news:

"Why the Feminist Controversy Over Frozen Misses the Point"

dammit why did i not post this on friday

I blame Cynthia and David Scott, who also did not post this on friday.


When I've been working on the Recobbled Cut Mark 4, friday was always a big day. I'd livestream all day and work until I passed out. Or after that. You all were a great motivator to work and I thank you for that, I had tons of fun. I wonder if I'd ever get back to that for non-Thief stuff, like my own work or the Muppets restorations I'm still doing. If there would be the interest. Hm.

I'd honestly be willing to watch. At the moment (and for the next couple weeks) I would probably pass due to exams but after that yeah I'd love to see more livestreams. Heck, we could get a rotation going around here if we wanted to with how many people seem to be doing stuff.
