    Cyberchase is still on? I completely forgot about the show until now.

    This is one thing i’ve been thinking of recently.

    The truth is...... we’re all hypocrites in some ways, and we don’t even realize it until someone points it out. Even I won’t deny i’ve had my hypocritical moments.

    I posted about this a while back, about how I call people out on laziness for one reason or another (i.e. shopping online instead of going to a store, or streaming instead of watching DVDs, etc.), when I'm guilty of some of the same stuff . . . like eating Pop-Tarts raw because I'm too lazy to stick in the toaster for one.

    Dude, raw pop tarts with something to wash it down was practically breakfast for me in college.

    Speaking of that, my dad got Pop-Tarts when he went shopping this past week and I love them raw myself.

    Pop-Tarts are honestly better raw imo.

    Here's a #FirstWorldProblem: Pop-Tarts with too little frosting on top.

    It's ironic, because they were actually plastering on the boxes a while back: "Now with more frosting!"

    That's why I prefer toaster strudel.

    Ehh . . . not really a fan of flaky pastry.

    To each his own.

    Just love the icing and the flakiness and how the filling is just so sugary and good.

    I always love getting the cinnamon flavored one; feels like you're eating a flaky cinnamon roll.

    So when comedian Jordan Peele does darker, edgier, and more dramatic stuff, everybody's all on board and loving it, but when I try to do darker, edgier, or more dramatic stuff, everybody's all "meh, whatever."

    I now have a theory about Herbert Birdsfoot from Sesame Street. We all know that he was just pulled of the show so they could bring back Kermit :) but a few days ago I was scrolling through Muppet Wiki and found this picture
    [​IMG]
    In the photo Hebert is presenting a ring to a female Pumpkin AM. So it looks like he is proposing to this Muppet. This illustration was featured in Sesame Street Magazine just a little while after he was pulled from the show:concern:. So now I have a theory that he got married to this Muppet and moved away from Sesame Street

    Back when Disney used to do those DTV specials . . . when you think about it, they were doing AMVs before YouTube made it cool. :p

    I think I know what another main problem is with cartoons today: they're too fast-paced, everything happens so quickly that you barely have enough time to really process what's happening. Granted, I'm sure the writers are pressured to squeeze as much as they can into what little running time they have (I can attest to that), but maybe, maybe this is one reason why kids today have such short attention spans.

    Well, once upon a time, cartoons back in the 90’s also had an 11 minute time running.

    And even some were the A-B-A format, where each segment was only 7 minutes, but somehow, their pacing wasn't so rapid-fire and quick-cut that you couldn't process what was going on; nowadays, an 11-minute cartoon almost feels like a rushed Abbott & Costello routine, like "Who's On First."

    You know what made me think today?

    Just the fact that pretty much I wasted my time going to college to get two degrees in digital media productions and I probably have no chances anymore to continue building it.

    Sorry for sounding negative but I’m just upset with myself tonight.
