socioeconomic musings to myself

You know… why IS it discouraged to discuss individual’s Net Worth? I know it is supposedly “embarrassing” to have a negative net worth, but literally the majority of America does, so….? I mean wasn’t it like 33% of the US was in debt NOT including car loans and mortgage? And then when you think about the fact that the average American’s debt is ~$225,000 (this includes student loans, mortgages and car loans) then you realize why nobody calculates the % of Americans in debt including mortgages and car loans - because it’s probably because its a boring percentage of 99% or something…

So again, why is it so discouraged to discuss individual Net Worth if they’re not a celebrity or millionaire? Wouldn’t that just give everyone a better understanding of our general overindulgence and opulence in spending? 

(Perhaps it is because then perhaps would be the only time a middle-class medium-employed person with a house and car and loans from a University education would feel ~inferior~ to a lower class person in an apartment living from paycheck to paycheck paying their way through community college… lol)

These are the things I think about when I look at my financial planner’s pie chart and realize 100% of my negative net worth is from my health care costs (dont get sick) and student loans (dont get an education either)….lol yikes.

intro to miku for little monsters

riningear:

  • "miku" is an avatar for a version of a voice synthesizer called vocaloid 
  • there’s a culture around “vocaloid” voice banks where producers/musicians/artists use vocaloid avatars and voice banks for artistic purposes 
  • it’s gotten really big in japan like people get record contracts for it all the time 
  • miku’s the most popular voice bank and avatar 
  • she’s not a hologram 

the whole art revolution around vocaloid is probs why she’s choosing miku just fyi

comic writing babblings

aaa….

i’ve been so caught up in my own comic making, i forgot the original theme of making a Magical Girl series… and it ended up falling into Hot Blooded Shonen territory halfway through [my default].

i’m conflicted on if this helps it or not, and i’m slowly realizing i really need to just make another rewrite/redraw sticking true to the magical girl nature, and then just compare and see which one works better… 

………..but……… i really dont want to do all that work i want to just start the actual pages already @_@

isthistakenalready:

If you’re not watching PING PONG: THE ANIMATION, you’re missing out on the most important thing this season.

Adapted from a comic by Matsumoto Taiyou ,(Sunny, Tekkon Kinkreet) and directed by Masaaki Yuasa (Kiba, KICK-HEART), PING PONG follows the apathetic Smile, his enthusiastic childhood friend Peco, and rival Chinese transfer student Kong Wenge as they rediscover why they play the game.

PING PONG GOT AN ANIME???????????????????


HOLY SHIT

  • rinalicatWhen you said that Alcibiades had a lisp, I keep thinking of Pontius Pilate from Life of Brian and I have no idea why.
  • HEHEHE aw dangit now I’ve got his voice stuck as the voice of Alcibiades in my head, damn I can’t tell if that’s ridiculous or very fitting.
