1st (CG) picture of new SpongeBob animated feature film “Sponge Out of Water” (2015).

Let’s be honest: This is no weirder than SpongeBob turning into a rock-and-roll wizard.
Plus, for CG, the models are very faithful to the show’s look!

Looks like they’re taking steroids!

NOT GAGA FOR GAGA
The VMAs are definitely not going gaga for Gaga
The singer that was “gonna slay” with her latest album, ARTFLOP, received ZERO nominations for this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, A.K.A. the VMAs.
In light of this information, let us remind you all that MADONNA, the one and only QUEEN OF POP and QUEEN OF MUSIC VIDEOS is the most nominated - AND MOST AWARDED - artist by MTV of all times.Madonna’s MTV domination started in the early 80s and it seemed like it wouldn’t stop. Madonna and MTV created a series of unparalleled iconic moments at their award shows together. No one has created as many iconic and historic moments in television as Madonna.From her videos to her live performances, to her acid humor, Madonna is part of our cultural DNA from the moment the MTV generation started making babies. 







   

Unparalleled, indeed.

Ha!

urvy1a said: Your thoughts on Big Hero 6?

boxlunches:

Heh, I have way too many thoughts on Big Hero 6. But I have way too many opinions about everything.

The short version is: I’m optimistic! Disney’s been on a roll lately, and Wreck-It Ralph was wonderful, solid proof that Disney can step out of their usual go-to genres and not only create a solid, beautiful film, but also one full of heart with characters you really care about. I’m also a fan of Princess and the Frog, Tangled, and Frozen, and so I think Disney has a pretty good team right now. I will not be surprised if this ends up being a good film.

But, the longer version is: I’m optimistic, but I’m cautious. And like everyone else I do have my reservations about some things. 

I haven’t read the comics myself, but from what I’ve heard from multiple sources I hear they’re pretty bad, no offense to any fans of the original comics. And whether or not they’re objectively bad, I think they kind of reek of what was wrong with the 2000s in terms of trying to appeal to kids: taking the more shallow cues of Japanese culture and trying to market that in a way that’ll make kids think of their favorite animes and therefore buy into it. For all I know, Big Hero 6 is a loving tribute to Japanese fantasy, buuuuuut with names like San Frantokyo, Wasabi No-Ginger (yeah, Akira Toriyama named a ton of characters from DBZ after food, but that’s a whole ‘nother story), and such…ehh. 

Let’s just say that I don’t mind Disney taking extreme liberties with the source material. And so far, it sounds like they’re doing just that. Usually I’m not a fan of adaptations that are this loosely connected to their source material, but I think in this case it’s kind of necessary. We’re beyond the How to Draw Manga stage in American culture, or at least I know I am, haaa.

So as far as the characters go, where all the controversy lies, I’d say the protagonist Hiro Hamada looks pretty adorable. There’s some dated stuff in there like the spiky hair and the cargo pants, but I think it works. Baymax is awesome with and without the armor, enough said. Gogo Tomago looks pretty interesting to me. I like Wasabi’s design, he looks like a fun character. Was it a good idea to change his race from Japanese to black? That’s kind of up for debate. I will say though that I’m not surprised they changed him in the first place from being a sushi chef (I think) named Wasabi. I mean…c’mon.

My two disappointments lie in Fredzilla and, you guessed it, Honey Lemon. Fredzilla’s design is too Dreamworks to me. Very generic, very Monsters vs. Aliens…it’s not grabbing me. I would have preferred something closer to the comic counterpart. 

I will totally admit that when I first saw Honey Lemon, my jaw dropped. Because the only thing I saw at first was just a cropped version of her face, and I thought it was a photoshopped Rapunzel. It was not. Now, I was one of the people who when the first peeks at Anna and Elsa were leaked, I immediately cried fowl and said they looked too much like Rapunzel. And at the time, they did. I legit couldn’t tell if it was a real image. When the movie came around, their designs had clearly been tweaked, and they’re different enough now from Rapunzel to satisfy me. Their noses are lower, the mouth shapes different, their eye shapes completely different, etc.

But Honey Lemon…I have to say, even though it’s likely she’ll look different in the actual film and in motion, they picked a shade of blonde and a shade of green for the eyes that is almost a dead-ringer for Rapunzel. I have no idea how they did that. Hopefully she’ll look more like those sketches that appeared in a low-quality picture where she’s wearing glasses and such, but if it were me, I’d definitely throw in the bangs she had from the comics. Maybe she has them, I can’t tell. And…yeah, good god, pick a different type of blonde, a different type of green, because the similarities are striking and it’s distracting. Also apparently the original character was Japanese and just liked to dye her hair…? Yeah, I don’t know what to feel about that. 

The other thing I’ll say about Honey Lemon is that I don’t like the color scheme of her outfit. Gettin’ tired of pink and purple and orange on the girl chick. And when I saw Gogo wearing yellow my first thought was the original Power Rangers, with the white girl in pink, the Asian girl in yellow, one wears a skirt, the other doesn’t, and…ehhh, seen it. I personally would have made Honey Lemon more adult looking like she seems to be in the comic pictures I’ve seen of her and let Gogo be the teen female protagonist that younger girls relate to. 

Anyway, we’ll see how it all plays out. Again, I’m optimistic. But there’s definitely some things I would change given the chance.

Also, I’m starting to get a headache from all the Disney cloned women discussion. It’s a valid discussion, it’s just…driving me crazy right now.

Feelin’ bored and sassy with you rn, Disney fandom. Wish we could talk about this stuff without the drama and grumpiness.

#tagging Disney and Pixar because I don’t care anymore, everyone needs to see this movie now

And its not like HTTYD2 sucks, it is seriously an amazing movie that has been beautifully animated. Fine if you do not believe me, take a look at this:image

Reblog if you care…

This would never happened if DW would added Channing Tatum and made HTTYD 2 an R-rated frat comedy.

Never have I hit reblog so quickly.

All little girls should see this. Truly inspiring!

It is not inspiring. He is criticizing the way Disney markets to little girls.

Especailly the fact that Hilary would have Bill on a leash and a box of shredded Bengazi documents…

i fucking hate tumblr so much seriously

you guys are always like “i want equality!” except gay people are better than straight people and women are better than men and poc are better than white people and trans people are better than cis people

if you claim you want equality, but put someone down because they’re privileged, that doesn’t make you an advocate for equality, it makes you an asshole

So true

fyeahcontroversialcharacters:

I honestly can’t say I’m surprised that these two ended up here. They’re extremely misunderstood. In fact, so is the show itself. It’s all zany cartoon humor and the internet ended up taking it too seriously. Seems to be a curse with most Nicktoons in the past few years, which is pretty sad….

I think the problem is that it came out at a time when Nick had cut a lot of its cartoons. It had no serious shows to counteract the zaniness of it. Had the network have had more cartoons still running new episodes, then these two might have gotten a fair shake, but because of the lack of a more down to earth show, (and just animation in general) these two didn’t have a chance. It also was a new concept that hadn’t really been done before as a primary focus of a show. It was a bit jarring.

It also had to live up to some hype. Between 2006 and 2008 Nickelodeon canceled 14 Nicktoons (15 if you count the short cancel of FOP). The majority of which had substantial, co- existing fan bases. It was one of the two Nicktoon premieres of 2009 (the other being Penguins of Madagascar), and the only other cartoons airing were The Mighty B, Back at the Barnyard (who also seems to garnish a bit of hate), Fairly Odd Parents, and Spongebob.

All of these shows were goofy and out of the box. Nick needed a little more seriousness to their lined up. (especially after losing Avatar in 08). Fanboy and Chum Chum was the exact opposite of this. It was crazy and wild and felt out of control. I think people took it too seriously, because they couldn’t take any of the shows seriously. Avatar ending was a blow, and this was seen as it’s replacement. Upsetting the audience.

The characters, who this post is about, fit their show. The characters did their job. You hit every point spot on. 

Personally, I’m not a fan. However, the show had a unique perspective, interesting art, and high energy. If the network had had something to balance it out, then the show may have succeeded.

Instead, it’s known as a Nicktoon failure, which really is a shame.

I probably would’ve brought up these points had I been defending the show itself.

There was a big change in management at the start of 2006. Cyma Zarghami had just become president of the network and one of her first moves was cancelling almost every Nicktoon they had, except SpongeBob and Avatar (and eventually Fairly OddParents). This obviously made fans furious, so it makes sense that they’d be much harder on Nick from that point on, but I think they’re holding this grudge a little too much. The problem is that they direct their hate on almost every single new show they come up with now, no matter how decent. Shows like Fanboy, among others, really aren’t that bad. If they should hate anyone, it should be the business side of Nick, not Nick as a whole and especially not its animation studio.

Also, in my eyes, the show wasn’t that much of a failure. It lasted longer than some other Nicktoons and even got a small toy line.

Well, these days, comedic shows face scorn from people who prefer darker, humorless content.
