The “eyes” have it. 

Apparently news of a sequel to The Intruder coming in 2015 caught a lot of people off guard. Not just that Toonami’s making a sequel to their first ground-breaking special, but that Toonami is on the air. 

Heaven knows how many “Toonami is back!” posts I’ve seen around Tumblr and social media outlets today. 

Truth is Toonami’s been back officially since May 26, 2012 every Saturday night on Adult Swim. They’ve done so much in their almost two years back on the air, it’s scary. The fact that Adult Swim is planning on creating a sequel to something that happened almost 15 years ago is surprising to say the least. What’s not surprising is that we, the fans who remain faithful to the block after all of these years, finally have proof that the network believes in the block. We’re still getting new productions every week, whether it’s new-to-the-block productions like the upcoming Blue Exorcist and Black Lagoon or original series like Space Dandy (each episode is a world premiere, baby!), and even more things are coming down the pike in the coming months and now years!

So, yes, Toonami’s revival is no fluke. It’s stronger than the ratings worriers think it is. And it’s a vital part in the continuous growth of the Adult Swim brand. 

Celebrate! Watch Toonami every Saturday night starting at 11:30 PM E/P. Tell your friends to watch too. 

And keep those eyes wide open!

Heartbreaking Simpsons Moments 1/∞: Bart Gets an F

This scene was so real to me as a kid because I was struggling with school at the time, too. I think pretty much every kid I knew who saw this episode talked about it at school as being one of the most realistic things they’d seen on tv in a long time. Bart’s always portrayed as a screw up but when he honestly tries his best and can’t succeed it’s just so honestly painful.

Oscar nominees Best Animated Feature 2014

Earlier today this article was brought to my attention, in which it becomes clear that some of the Academy voters have little to no respect for the animation industry. They openly admit not having watched the nominated films and/or claiming that animated films are for kids, so they didn’t vote. Even the ones shown in the article that did vote barely motivated their choice.

I find this extremely disrespectful of the animators who poured their heart and soul into making these movies, only to have their work be pushed aside without a second glance by the judges of one of the most prominent and well known film awards out there. As an aspiring animator, I am deeply insulted.

Please note that in this post I am expressing no opinion on whether Frozen should have won or not. I think it’s a wonderful film, just as all the other nominees. I am simply saying that we deserve better.

What they did is disrespectful to the creators of every single one of these films, even Frozen. By barely motivating their choice, they make it look like they voted for Frozen simply because of Disney’s status in the industry. Because it’s Disney, and it made a lot of money, so it had to be at least somewhat good. To me it seems like some of the voters just defaulted to voting for the Disney film, and nobody likes to win by default.

Don’t get me wrong, I too have been guilty of loving Disney simply because it’s Disney, but there is so much more beautiful animation out there and it deserves to be taken into consideration. And if Frozen won, it should have won because the majority of the voters thought it was the best film, not because part of the voters was too lazy to even watch the nominated films.

I very rarely reblog here but this sums up a lot of my feelings about the Oscars this year :(

I want so badly to just educate people in film about the real craft of animation. I think so much of the dismissal simply comes from a place of ignorance. It doesn’t hurt any less, but it gives me hope that spreading knowledge will help bring a change in the condescending attitude so many people have towards animation.
