Our War Game (2000) // Summer Wars (2009)
that time mamoru hosoda made the same movie twice
Yeah it was pretty cool both times. The first one was more digimon and the second one was less digimon but still had digimon.
How does it feel being the new Pokémon Champion? ⊟
16 days, 7 hours, 45 minutes, and 33 seconds later, it’s finally over.. There’s a lot of fanart commemorating the end of Twitch Plays Pokémon, but this one from Kiyokon is my favorite.

Today is the official release date of Space Boyfriend’s bug spray (never give up), a complete re-construction of their debut full length, Bug Spray. You can order a physical copy on casette here (comes with a download code for a digital copy):
or download a digital copy here later today:
never give up is an interesting release for me, largely due to the fact that in the time since the release of the original Bug Spray I’ve gotten to know Jami personally. I know where some of the emotions came from that drove Bug Spray, and I know where some of the emotions came from that drove never give up, and how they’ve changed the meaning behind some of the tracks. There are even some small lyrical changes that show just how much this release is entirely Jami’s.
never give up is an extremely raw and emotional album. Jami isn’t afraid to pour their heart out, scream and cry. Some of the tracks, Ill Moonlight in particular, might emotionally break you. My favourite track off the album is a letter to a dying star. The track was previously only released as a part of Ultranimbus’ Ultranimboy zine (which you can find here: http://ultranimb.us/ultranimboy/), and while already great, it received a never give up makeover, which pushed it to a new level. It combines everything I love about Space Boyfriend, it’s at times melancholic, and at others nostalgic, it’s affecting, it’s raw.
never give up is a really special album. As a fan of Space Boyfriend, it’s amazing, and proof of the musical growth of one of my favourite artists. As a person, I’m proud of the album, because it’s a musical representation of the personal growth of a friend.
What was that? I couldn’t hear you, Dojima.
Gonna be a cute lil’ Politoed some day soon~
You are not an accident. This world needs you. Without you, something will be missing, something that nobody can replace. You are special. You are loved. You are worthy.
Throughout high school I honed my craft—video—and created hilarious and spectacular things. I was told by so many people they were amazing and great and funny and I was definitely the next Stephen Spielburg. Then I went to film school.
Everyone in that first video class? They had honed their craft—video—and created hilarious and spectacular things. They were told by so many people that they were amazing and great and funny and they were definitely the next Stephen Spielburg.
The thing to remember is that art—whether it be drawing, video, sculpture, poetry, music, whatever—is a skill. Practicing will indeed make you better. But no amount of practice will ever change *you* and the way you think. From a “skill” perspective, you might be completely equal to another artist, but the things you each create will be wildly different.
Don’t stop creating because someone is better than you, because they’ll never be you—and that’s the most important part of your art.
