So I made a friend this morning. I am guessing she is a Chaulionid, probably a female Fishfly (Chauliodes pectinicornis):
(Pictured here on fake corn.)
She and I got into a brief discussion about current events, and I asked her about an issue that was weighing heavy on my giant meaty chordate brain:
TRISH: "I don't know. Do you think any of my readers will be terribly upset if I, like, DON'T watch all the Disney DTV sequels? Because I have the first one in my hand and the full magnitude of what I may be subjecting myself to is just starting to hit me. And every time I look at my Netflix queue...
"...I just get very, very depressed. I don't think I can do this, but I hate blatantly not doing a project I said I was going to. It's not like I seriously think anyone is honestly going to be disappointed and call me out on it, but it still feels wrong somehow. What do you think?"
CHAULIONID: "... ... ...?"
TRISH: "Yeah. Yeah, you are absolutely right. Be free, my little disproportionately large-winged friend!"
So after releasing the insect out the back window, I fired up my Netflix queue and made it more like this:
So My Summer of Sequels is still on - sort of; I'll just be reviewing the DTV Disney sequels that I am on pretty good authority are actually not-terrible and/or are at least interesting to talk about.
And then, on a whim, and double-checking release dates on Wikipedia, I did this:
I suddenly decided to watch as many 1990's animated features made by random studios mostly in the wake of "The Lion King". A surprising number of them are not yet available. I will not be able to review "Balto", "Once Upon A Forest", or "Bebe's Kids". Though on the plus side, I am spared the Filmation "Happily Ever After". I finally have impetus to sit down and watch "Thief and The Cobbler: ReCobbled" and "Felidae" on YouTube (I hope). And admit it, you AAAAaaall want to see me nerd rage over "We're Back".
Sketch of the Day!
Started a new one recently. Here's a study of a robin:
