In my latest write-up for Cartoon Brew, I pour my guts out about life after leaving college, and the haphazard but eventually rewarding future that all recent-graduating animation students have in store for them.
Remember, despite the many obstacles you will come up against on the road to being a professional in this industry, you all are talented, hard-working and creative individuals and there will always be a place for you as long as you keep at it, work hard and stay positive.A great write up by Mike Ruocco about graduating from college and taking the leap into the professional world
Interesting! Are they saying the only animation jobs are really in California, though? That’s what I got from it, though I don’t think that was the intention haha.
Oh no no no. That was just MY personal experience. There ARE opportunities in New York and in other cities, but for what I wanted to do, and for my own preferences, I chose to move out here. Sorry for the confusion.
thanks for the wise and uplifting words, Mike <3
the best tumblr has to offer
I tested Walmart’s brand of bottled water and I was shocked to see they sell the most toxic water ever. I tested for Total Dissolved Solids using a TDS meter and the number I got was 271. THAT IS THE MOST TOXIC WATER I HAVE EVER SEEN. Even NYC tap water TDS score is 39. Poland Spring is 42. The water is not even drinkable. I think it’s Criminal to even make profits from selling this water filled with sodium fluoride and who knows what else is in that. 500 ppm (parts per million) is the EPA Maximum but even though the FDA is corrupt their recommended is 000, which is pure.
THE ONLY BOTTLED WATER THAT READS 000 IS DUANEreade/Walgreens ‘NICE’ branded water.
PLEASE SHARE THIS INFO ALONG.- anonymous
Damn wally mart… Damn… :/
ok wow i could of told you that shit was toxic without using science
nothing grape flavored is flavored like grapes it’s just flavored like other grape flavored things and this is why I have trust issues
FUN FACT: Grape artificial flavor was the first artificial flavor created, by accident. That means that some guy decided, “Whoa, this smells a lot like grapes,” and now everyone pretends it’s grape-y, too…
It tastes like an accident
Plot twist: The next companion is a normal girl/boy who only dies once in their lifetime and has no remarkable back story but he thinks they’re wonderful because they are human and the Doctor needs reminding that you don’t need to be a mystery to be remarkable.
Even bigger plot twist: The next companion also isn’t in love with the Doctor or vice versa.
didnt yall just describe donna
just saw a guy wearing a nirvana t-shirt lmfao i bet cant even name three noble truths of buddhism

I’m legitimately amazed at the fact that women can actually grow a person in their uterus without even trying
and then the people CRAWL OUT OF THEIR VAGINA
COVERED IN ECTOPLASM
AND NO ONE EVEN TRIES TO KILL IT LIKE THAT’S A COMPLETELY NORMAL OCCURRENCE FOR US
I don’t think the person writing this realizes that they crawled out of a uterus once
I was a C section check your privilege
“without even trying”? XD
Do you ever get in those moods when everything annoys you and you’re just so irritated and nervous but you have no clue why, and you just want to punch a hole in the wall and then break down in tears?

This is a terrible post.
The painting of Gaston and Belle in the background is what got me.
Things that are acceptable:
There’s also six pictures of young boys in the Gaston picture; in the movie he says they’ll have six or seven strapping boys. Those are their kids.
I believe Ezma deserves a place here.
you mean Yzma from Emperor’s Groove?
Josephine Baker, later known as ‘Bronze Venus’, ‘Black Pearl’ and ‘Créole Goddess’ was born in America in 1906 and later moved to France to become a singer, dancer, and actress. She was the first African-American woman to star in a major motion picture, and became famous worldwide.
Though she grew up as a maid in wealthy white households she eventually became an exotic dancer in France, famously appearing in next to no clothing, and became a French citizen in 1937.
Ernest Hemingway referred to Baker as ‘the most sensational woman anyone ever saw’ and she received approximately 1500 marriage proposals in her life time. She became a muse for Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Pablo Picasso, and Christian Dior. She had a variety of exotic pets including a cheetah named Chiquita, a chimpanzee named Ethel, a pig named Albert, a snake named Kiki, a goat, a parrot, parakeets, fish, three cats, and seven dogs.
When WWII broke out, Baker became a volunteer spy for France, and assisted the French Resistance by smuggling messages written in invisible ink on sheet music. She made great efforts to aid those in danger of enemy attack, sent Christmas presents to French soldiers, and smuggled information she gathered in Spain back to France by pinning notes containing the information on the inside of her underwear. She was awarded the Medal of Resistance with Rosette and later named a Chevalier of the Legion of Honour.
Baker also aided many civil rights movements by refusing to perform to segregated audiences and storming out of a club in Manhattan with actress Grace Kelly after she was refused service. She worked with the NAACP and spoke at a Washington march alongside Martin Luther King Jr. as the only official female speaker. Baker was actually asked by Martin Luther King Jr.’s widow to take his place as leader of the American Civil Rights Movement, but Baker declined on the grounds her twelve adopted children ‘were too young to lose their mother’.
Baker died in 1975, four days after her final show, attended by such names as Mick Jagger, Shirley Bassey, and Liza Minnelli.
Oh and she was queer and had a relationship with Frida Kahlo. All around badass.
I’d like a movie about her life too, please.
