Silent Treatment – by The Roots (1995)
Calling all hip-hop heads. Remember this gem? In it, Black Thought laments over being ignored and sexually neglected by his beloved. Sad for him, but it results in a great track for us.
“Steady pursuin’ screwin’ gettin’ nothin’ but the silent treatment…”
girl you know that you need to stop givin me the silent… treatment BAY-BE! Girl don’t you know what you mean to me… i wanna love you constantly… but ya keep neglectin me and treatin me silently
Mighty Tactical Shooter
Side-scrolling old style shoot-em-up game with unique turn-based control mechanic - video embedded below:
An ultra-modern tactical UI, an 80’s arcade shooter theme, a sprinkle of physics and gravity bending, some classic shooter inspiration, a dark plot, some mild RPG-like progression, and you’ve got a tactical 2D shooter like no other. It’s about tactics, not reflex. Your move.
A demo is available to play here
More about the game can be found at Kickstarter here
For some reason a bird speaking Japanese is mildly off putting.
> Literal translation
Bird:” ‘Uhm Hello, this is the Ono family.”
Bird: “What’s wrong?”
Owner: “Abe-chan, you’re a little too early. Once the phone’s picked up, then properly say hello.”
Bird: “Okay, understood.”
Owner: “Do you really understand? I’m counting on you. Hello, this is the Ono family residence in Gifu.”]
Bird: “Okay, I understand!”
Owner: “Got it.”
> That’s clearly some sort of Pokemon.
> Off-putting? It’s like birds were meant to speak Japanese!
> For some reason it’s never occurred to me that birds can mimic languages other than English. It’s so cool, though!
Speed Animation 120
I tried something different today, a run with really pushed perspective and it was pretty difficult. lately i’ve been obsessed with drawing pushed perspective and really pushing proportion so this was pretty fun for me. The speed lines didn’t turn out how i wanted and it was first time attempting those and for some reason my mind isn’t grasping the concept of them…. well, i can try again on another animation. this test took me about an hour and a half because it was so challenging. but i learned something new today!
