A thread for those who enjoy and wish to discuss animation and animation related stuff from places that aren't Japan.

The Willoughbys was alright.
Probably the silliest thing I have seen in months. Just a fun movie. Story is a bit weak and it's all over the place but it is very oddly satisfying by the end.

The visual style is pretty intresting too.
Not the greatest thing ever or some sort of instant classic but it is just a fun silly movie with a good spirit and a slightly dark edge.
Would highly recommend to actual children. As for adult animation fans, it's not bad but I think enjoyment strongly depends on mood.
I liked it, but I was in the mood for what it was.


I hear it's good but still haven't got around to watching it.
I also heard it got canceled, so that means while it was popular with adult/older animation fans actually children probably weren't wild about it and it underpreformed in the numbers or in merch sells. Shame since streaming in theory should open the way to shows with a older audience should still be able to find their place and get funded.

Maybe tech will keep progressing so that it will get even cheaper and easier for small teams to make quality animation on really small budgets.

Watched the animated adaptation of Mimi and the Mountain Dragon that the BBC came out with a few years ago.

It was interesting that rather then sound effects they instead made uses of a full orchestra for everything but human voices.
It was around 25 minutes so long enough to tell the full story without sticking around to the point of being boring. The art is a interesting take, as it isn't quite like the story book, it's more doing it's own thing, but it still looks nice and the animation is alright for what it is. Nothing masterful but fluid and gets the job done.
Overall I think it is a good animated adaptation. I recommenced giving it a watch if you got a half hour to kill. It at the very least sounds nice and is pretty relaxing due to the music focus.


I hate this annoying trend of pretending this dumb doodles are somehow transformed something "serious" and add "lore" and "psychological" bullshit, it is an embarrassment, in the end is just ugly stick drawings for fat american children.


good bye alaskan crab
Enjoy your bucket alone

subject says it all. i want to make money doing something i love instead of being a wagecuck (don't we all?), but i have no idea how to monetize my art or my skills. some people might say "don't do it for the money" but i'd really want to get paid to do something actually worthwhile.

Like others wizards said; crypto is one way. You could use any of the many online wallets for taking money and then send money from there to your personal bank account.


How are you going to sell them? It's all marketing and very little writing. If you try to self-promote they'll call it "spam" unless you buy some big jew corporation to "advertise" for you (they just steal your money)



It was a way in the past. Now there's 100 coins that'll never go anywhere for every coin that will multiply by 10.


i just laid out a hypothetical scenario where im completely fine with every book selling only a single time each month. that is really bad and slow for the record, stuff sells itself at that low rate with no effort on your part


What platform do you use to sell your books? I'm beginning to think writing is the only way I'll earn a pittance without being miserable

Is anyone here in to 3D modelling? Planning to start?

What programs do you use? Are you working on animation, models to publish, or building environments to render pleasantly? If you plan to export to a game engine, check out ( >>>/games/8456 )

WOO! Finally got started with 3D, after years of wanting to. (I was previously addicted to video games)

Followed a tutorial to make this little scene. Seems like a fun way to waste my time. End goal is to learn how to make some cute furry girls. I respect the opportunity to post in this ancient thread, so I won't spam out too many posts

I have decided to give Blender a try, following a video tutorial and I still failed this badly. Does anyone know what causes this and is there an easy fix or should I start over?


Your normals look backwards! Selecting the whole thing and recalculating normals should fix it. 2 min vid related shows how


Oh man that is not pretty, it seems to be scattered throughout the model and I have to hunt one by one, since recalculating the normals is not fixing it. Thanks wizzie, I learned something new.

i am not a blender pro but ive used it to clean up and export sketchup models. there is an option to color faces by their orientation, so you would just turn that on and select all the red faces and then flip their normals with mesh > normal >flip or something like that. it's really not difficult and you have to do that often for things made with other software so it's good thing to know

My hobby is trolling and cyber stalking people. Does anyone else share this amazing interest. I understand it is a bit weird, but it's my only interest. I have 40+ instagram accounts larping as various females and males, to catfish my way into various random normies lives and gain followers. Every larp has a distinct personality and it's own internet friend group. I also do this on twitter, and facebook. Anyone else share the interest?

The only sad part is none of my friends know who I am ,I am a 48 year old wizard neet. But through these personas, I can be anyone I desire.

I can think of a place where you would fit right in amongst the *ahem* ruling class. A clique, if you would.


To the evil wizards in this thread. All the things that you do will be judged by God in judgement day. You will provide an account of all your good and evil deeds in judgement day. If you are found evil then nothing can save you from God. Choose your side wisely wizzies



>whoever doesn't agree with muh religion is evulz




I am different anon, but yes we will have to give an account for all of our words, and it's written that all liars will have their part in the lake of fire


Does any of you, Wizards, enjoy a good night drive, roaming around the city and bonding with your automobile?
I have an access to a car, but being well into my 30's, I don't really see the car as anything but a money sink and a way to get to place B reliably. Being a shut-in, I drive maybe once a month.
I'd like to change that, but that would require me to get a garage, because my parents cut me off, and I can't go for a ride without begging them to move their car. I'm a pushover, so that's not happening. I've been thinking of getting a Full HD camera, and maybe making music videos for vaporwave mixtapes, just so I have an illusion of doing something productive by burning gas.
What do you guys think?

Wow that looks clean, very nice. How much did you pay for it? I just checked local listings for pre-LT1 C4's and these things are so expensive compared to a couple years ago, what in the world.
>used to have a blacked out crown vic
Also neat. I have an 08 (non P71, so no dual exhaust and a 2.73 rear end) but it's still a very enjoyable car to drive. Fun enough to powerslide around corners but tame enough to feel safe enough doing it. I did have an 86 CV but I also lost that in a crash, I really do miss it.
Speaking of 80's sports cars, I do have an 87 mustang that is almost close to being 100% complete and driveable. It's really been a lot more of a project than I anticipated, but I don't regret it.

prices have risen like crazy the past year or so, I bought mine for 5500 and could easily sell for 7-8k now.
I had an 08 P71 to be honest I do miss it sometimes, especially the reliability and how roomy it was. not that the corvette has left me stranded but there's a 20 year gap in age. been thinking about buying another p71 for a beater daily and keep the corvette as a weekend driver. right now the corvette is also my daily but I work from home so its not a big deal.
foxbodies are pretty cool too. if you are looking into C4 avoid the 84 models, the 89 models are the best of the early c4 models since it has the original interior, L98 motor and manual transmission was changed from doug nash 4+3 to actual 6 speed transmission. most bugs were also iron out that year.
later models facelift body styling, the LT1 motor, which makes more HP but has issues with optispark and an updated 90s GM interior.


I'm 25 and don't have a drivers license


parents made me get mine when i was 16. i dont even live in that state anymore but twice i've renewed it online and they just ship it to me in another state with a different state listed as my address on that state license… really funny. i just use it as a form of id

Been wageslaving for a year and I managed to build my first half decent PC with some of the money I saved up. Any other anons enjoy this?

I used:
Ryzen 5 2600, ASUS ROG x470 mini itx, 16gb of RAM, and an rx590. Hopefully should last me 4 or 5 years since I plan to go NEET for awhile again soon.

I want a small form factor PC that still can play games (nothing major, Half-Life 2 era games are enough for me). I was thinking about Intel NUC Canyon, is there anything better?
I don't trust Steam Deck to be decent too much.


Steam deck will be hilariously underpowered. Steam’s hardware before was, and now they’re trying to make a tablet, which tend to have shit power in the first place. Do you want it small to save space or for portability? Cause a small desktop will give you more power than a large laptop.


Portability, I work on ships and generally have a fair bit of problems with Windows and shit connection so I've moved to a Samsung tablet, but miss my Steam library. I'd connect the small PC and use the tablet as a screen.


Cool to see another ship worker here. Corsair has some small form factor PCs but they tend to be expensive. Though they might also just have some slim cases you can buy and then outfit it yourself.


I'll look into building one myself at home, then, thanks.

Don't know if we've ever had thread even though it seems like a very wizardly hobby. I bought a really cheap tecsun but i could only get a couple channels, two spanish (cuban?) ones and some mainstream new channels. Not sure if spending more money would help or if I should try a different area. I've been told the hobby is completly dead but looking on reddit and forums it looks like there's still some activity

No. I thought they were made up.


>truckers and school buses doing radio checks
>rapid beeping stations (towers to warn planes?)

That's all I ever did hear.

I like only buying go-bag tier sized devices and the radio being small for that reason turns me on to it. The cellphone route is bad because it's a cellphone also unless you can use it after soldering off the various antennas.


if any of you is interested you can get some radio frequencies here


>I thought they were made up.
They're very real, there are a lot of them, and some of them sound quite creepy. The mystery around them has been shredded however. In short, they're broadcasting benign military exercise commands and info. Info such as "A plane flying West over position X at 0600 is friendly, do not report or engage" read in a simple but ever-changing code. Position X might be in an area where access to electricity is sparse, so the signal strength is very high so that small compact radios like consumer solar pocket CBs can intercept it. The substance of the information is mixed in with static, strange noise, and scheduled nonesense. Stationary receivers pass the audio output through a series of analogue and digital filters that remove most of the noise, but even if such cleanup isn't available the code can still be heard.

A popular one was triangulated a few years ago in southwest Russia. When some radio enthusiasts noticed it changed locations, they went to the initial position and found a small bunker a few blocks from residential buildings. Inside they found a mostly empty bunker but behind some tables or something they found maps and an old codebook that stated something like "during a certain span of days of the year, the transmitted numbers would correspond to these letters, and the transmitted letters would correspond to these positions and times". If the enthusiasts could find a recording of a broadcast from the dates outlined in the book, they'd be able to decipher it in a matter of minutes.


That story sounds surreal, not only did they manage to locate the source but they just walked in and there was no one and they found all these documents lying there? Right.


It wouldnt surprise me. The Soviet Union produced a lot of military stuff. Such a large amount of "guns" that the country fell apart because the citizens lacked "butter". I would assume the russia is trying to operate a lot of this military infrastructure with low investment.

I recently picked up this hobby of watching pop education videos on youtube. History, science, technology, futurology, philosophy etc. It really passes the time. And a quick 10 minute tidbit is very relaxing.

I especially find the science, technology, futurology, AI videos very uplifting from the usual pessimism I dwell on.

wow I had no idea they were going to build one of these in the US. The first leg will actually be passing through my city too. Very exciting.


I wouldn't hold my breath.
HSR projects tend to be vaporware in the US for a number of reasons.
Until it is actually running and being profitable I will continue to doubt the project.
Super cool if they pull it off though.

Got two batches of beer brewing. Both are wheat malt, hops and cherries. Using wild yeast from cherries, hopefully Sacchoromyces. Malted the wheat myself (sprouted then dried in sun) and got cherries from my own cherry tree. I expect them to be sour beers but I'm not sure tasting them so far.

Right I started the 21st and left on 22nd. The left will probably fill with yeast cloud tomorrow and the cherries will float. The right one I only boiled until the wort changed color and smelled cause I just spontaneously made it after procrastinating after making the malt a couple months ago. I only had a fundamental understanding of brewing. The left one I boiled the hops for an hour and the malt a bit longer. That's why it isn't all the way full, too much boiled out. I'm probably gonna drink right after a week and left after a month or two.

Its pretty hot and sunny lately, tomorrow I'll start sprouting more grains I have and then malt them.

Gonna make mead soon. Reading the ancient way (which I trust more than modern ways - ignore modern schizo nonsense about sanitation, you don't need special soaps or airlocks), they used either years old rain water or boiled spring water. The yeast need nutrients beyond honey so I don't think I can just use tap water. My tap water in particular I know is soft (few minerals). I'm gonna age the mead at least 2-3 months.

if you knew someone that was diabetic there might be enough sugar in their pee to be able to ferment it



James Gilpin is a designer and researcher who works on the implementation of new biomedical technologies. He's also got type 1 diabetes, where his body doesn't produce enough insulin to regulate blood sugar levels.

So he's started a project which turns the sugar-rich urine of elderly diabetics into a high-end single malt whisky, suitable for export.


imagine waging away to drink piss


This is very Green Soylent.


It's not time yet and only half done but I'm really tempted to cold crash this early as the mother gave this neet ten usd for a doctor's fee and I ended up not paying it and buying 8 abv booze instead, about a gallon of it, so now I'm in 'booze mode' and wishing it was done. I figure that maybe it's already 5 abv but that's not great and it might be lower than that as I've never drank it until giving it at least two weeks. What should I do? Sell a sword to a pawn shop? They'd probably not give me much money at all for anything. The nes carts in the image probably don't work anymore for example.

Fuck my life.

That's it, it's going into the fridge. Fuck it all. I'll just OD on anxiety meds and hydroxyzine if it does not do anything to me, not that they give me fun drugs. ALso I have mouth wash, there's that as an option. cooking wine I could do but my hypertensioin would kill my kidneys if I did that too often. I probably have permanent damage as it is in that regard.

I wish I still made good tasting booze. A long time ago I made a mock-red booze that had everything from kiwi in it to apple and grape and berries and it was very nice and perfectly clear in less than a month. I've never been able to do it twice. It was not too sweet, it was not too dry, it was not yeasty though I used bad yeast and didn't wait too long, and it was maybe 9 abv and had the berry aftertaste. That was the one that was called 'fresca' by my mother. So sad I can't get it done a second time, it's never right when I try. Maybe it was a temp thing. Also watermelon was in it, juice, if I recall. I experiment a lot but usually are such a bum and lazy and trying to not do booze at all that I never do put enough effort into making it into something that someone would actually want to drink. But yes, that light red booze was nice. I drank it with my grandfather's army cup and it was very nostalgic in a way, though I never knew him drinking from a steel banged up cup is sort of homey in a frugal way that turns me on.

>I wonder how much they'd give me at a pawn shop for these old carts….

But yeah, I think that the zest of raspberries and the aroma of watermelon go well into booze though I am not entirely sure that that is true. I should use watermelon and raspberries aPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

In my area, there's a car club that gathers at a dead end street. They are loud.
On the other hand, I only see on average one motorcycle a day in my one-hour commute.


holy fuck no wonder motorcycles get smashed by cars. is that not annoying have a little bike zipping around you?


in my experience only niggers and latinos do that


Honestly I'm near sited so that might be the whole issue. Also I live 'in the south' so it's probaby just me either way.
