“some historians think that michelangelo was drawing god in a human brain. very few people knew what one looked like at the time; but michelangelo had dissected cadavers and would have known. it even has the hint of a brain stem. if true this would have been a great “fuck you” to the pope whom he was not friendly with but also would have meant god was in a human brain, or created by man.”

Interesting.

also michelangelo painted a baby angel flipping off the pope

the blond one, you see his right hand? that’s called the fig and it’s an old world european gesture for ‘fuck you” because apparently Pope Juluis II was a total raging asshole and everyone hated him

but nobody ever noticed this little fucker because the ceiling was so high

and then thirty years later they called michelangelo back to paint the wall behind the altar and he wasted no time in painting the gates of hell behind the pope’s chair

what a badass

It amuses me to this day how much Michelangelo hated his job

There’s an abundance of bad things happening right now, and it’s hard not to be sucked into that black hole of sadness, so let’s have a puppy party shall we.

It was a moment Anthony Carbajal will never forget: standing on the stage of one of TV’s most popular talk shows, fighting for a cause that touches him and his family profoundly. All while his mom looked proudly on.

Watch Anthony and Ellen do the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and see the full interview here.

Anastasia’s Blue Dress Appreciation Post

Was there some sort of special animation for this movie because it has never looked quite like other animation.

It was almost entirely rotoscoped, if that’s what you mean? That means it was drawn on top of live action film, which is how they got the realistic subtleties. 

Whoa, that’s so cool. Wow.

And this, ladies and gentlemen, is rotoscoping done fantastically right.

Because all you really need to do is find some cheap animation produced by lesser-to-completely-unknown studios to see how horribly disturbing rotoscoping is when the artist cannot animate very well; if the frame rate is too slow? It looks jerky, choppy, and repulsively unnatural. It leaps right into the uncanny valley and sets up house there.

Lemme take a minute and talk to y’all about Anastasia’s fantastic creator, Don Bluth. This dude used to work for Disney, right? He was pretty much a big deal after Walt passed away, but Disney wasn’t doing too hot so Bluth and a few other people decided to take off and create their own company to start doing movies. He created the movies we grew up with-Anastasia, All Dogs Go to Heaven, Land Before Time, The Secret of Nimh, An American Tail, Thumbelina, and so many more. His artistry is like none other, it’s very distinct and absolutely beautiful. He knows his stuff, man. Colors and movements and everything that viewers are subconsciously looking for in good animation. He’s retired but he owns a cute little cabaret theater in Phoenix Arizona that does shows with casts of all ages—my little brother was just in Bluth’s production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and it’s amazing seeing Bluth’s animation skills put on stage in live action because he still knows what to do with costumes and lighting and staging. This man is SO talented and he doesn’t do any of it for fame or glory he does it because it’s what he loves and he wants to make others happy with these great fun stories. He is the kindest man I’ve ever met and his passion is so contagious.
