Studio Ghibli | 1985 - 2014
After recent rumors of Studio Ghibli closing their animation department and the low box office numbers for When Marnie Was There, it was time to make an appreciation post for a company that has created true movie magic again and again. So, thank you, Studio Ghibli. Hopefully it isn’t good-bye just yet.
A couple of months ago I was talking to the ineffably lovely gingercatsneeze about Dishonored and the characters turning into animals. Following that, she did up these lovely animations. They take my breath away.

25th anniversary of the release of the Game Boy in North America!
Lets not forget the man who created that wonderful brick, Gunpei Yokoi
But we can’t show people of the same gender kissing on-screen. Amazing.
But… It’s an 18 (in the Uk)
How did a TV-14 on a network channel get an 18 rating, they can’t even show a buttcrack for gods sake!
Well, aside from the brutal killings… Ok, yea it couldn’t be a 15. We need more ratings. Why not just use all the ages?
i messed up. i messed up bad today.
How do you fuck up that badly!?
This comic I made over a year ago, but I’ve touched it up since and I’m happy to share it on tumblr C: while I’ve improved immensely since I made this, I’m still really proud of myself for making it.
ps. this was during a stage in my art where I was a little texture heavy, heh heh
Also let’s remember that Nickelodeon’s current VA directing staff is garbage. I’m sure they treat Tom with respect because come on he’s Tom Fucking Kenny.
But let’s remember how Nickelodeon treated Gabriel Iglesias when they asked him to do Voiceover.

Okay but consider this: fuck you
Stop watching goddamn cartoons!
Watch AOT and then tell me they’re “cartoons” ya know. For kids.
Or I could watch a good anime.
Short-eared dog? Uncovering the secrets of one of the Amazon’s most mysterious mammals
by Jeremy Hance
Fifteen years ago, scientists knew next to nothing about one of the Amazon’s most mysterious residents: the short-eared dog (Atelocynus microtis). Although the species was first described in 1883 and is considered the sole representative of the Atelocynus genus, biologists spent over a century largely in the dark about an animal that seemed almost a myth. But all this changed when veterinarian and researcher, Renata Leite Pitman, embarked on a long-term study of these enigmatic carnivores, even having the good fortune of being guided by a semi-wild short-eared dog named Oso.
"My first thought when I heard about this ghost-like animal was that people must have been mistaking it for a similar-looking species, like a tayra or a jaguarundi," Leite Pitman told mongabay.com. "So I looked into the literature on the short-eared dog and found it was full of contradictions. One book had it occurring in this region, the other didn’t. One said the species was diurnal, and the other nocturnal. This mismatching information made me very curious,"
In fact, here was a good-sized mammal—a carnivore nonetheless—that was totally unheard of outside the Amazon and even little-known by locals there.
