Did some freshwater wildlife surveys with college students today. They found lots of stuff:
Frog and toad tadpoles.
A water scorpion.
A froglet that jumped into the tray all by itself.
The stars of the show though, were a couple of juvenile newts.
So in a season that ends with a musical number about Bart's vanishing good prospects, this season of #TheSimpsons has been very informative yet character driven. Each family member got a few great moments. Same for some of the towns folk. #ASeriousFlanders was a movie all its own, and damn! As a gay guy, I loved Smithers ep. Also Brandine (the hillbilly wife) is discovered to be Jeopardy smart. And not celebrity, Regular Jeopardy!
Here's a bookmark for you: The Animation History Bibliography
Orrin Scott has compiled a list of animation-related books [in English] and is making it available for everyone here: https://cartoonresearch.com/index.php/the-animation-history-bibliography/
He's also looking for contributions, so if you have any books that you don't see listed, please add them!
Boosts appreciated too
A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.
Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).
Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.
No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.
(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)
Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain
Many of you interacted, but also observed that communication can be improved. Less birdsite crossposting, more #accessibilty + image #captions. Knowing the culture, #fediquette and learn to love 💖 our fedi.
I was talking to my co worker today about the queens jubilee and happened to say idk which jubilee it was and this random customer just said it was the platinum one, then happily informed me it was the 70th year of her rule, and long story short I accidentally told a customer I was looking forward to the queen dying :|

Ok, umm. WOW. I -did- not expect this movie to go this hard. Not just on disney cameos, but just everything else. The licensing team on this was must have been busy.

Animation man, but I have multitudes.
Go/Baduk player, TTRPG player/maker, love a good story. I still have -some- hope for Twitter.
