If BEE 2018 fails, I am GIVING UP ON TRANSFORMERS!JMK here,
I recently made a playlist on YouTube.
I binged through the whole list from 15:50:55HRS to midnight straight (8 hours 9 minutes 5 seconds).
It started with Optimus Prime...
...and ended with Optimus Prime.
Within it contained videos discussing the following:
The fate of Action Cartoons
The fate of the DCEU!
The fate of the Transformers franchise as whole
This was a playlist that I constructed to help me purge some memories and feelings from the past. I find it kinda therapeutic. But to fully engage in the new half of the year I need to get this off my chest.
My history with animation and Transformers
When I was a kid, I loved animated TV shows and movies. I was never really into anything Disney related outside of their animated movies, even their shi
My Solo: A Star Wars Story experienceJMK Here,
Yesterday, I watched the latest Star Wars movie (Solo) in theatres and here is basically my experience watching it.
Opening credits: Nice change to the formula.
Title sequence: Nice.
World War 1-esque scene: This is the Star Wars we all came to see
Han getting his name:
Han meeting Chewie: Muddy cage fight!
Train scene: First Avenger did it better!
Kessel run scene: The first Star Wars movie to ever put me to sleep!
Scenes with Han: Why did they cast him again!
Scenes with Lando
Thought and feelings on Bumblebee Trailer 2018JMK here,
As much as I got my trust raped by Hasbro for the past 10 years (Transformers 1-5) I have to say:
This trailer looks awesome.
Good choice of soundtrack!Big mac callback from the 2007 movie.The G1 aesthetic is back baby!
Bee is finally cute looking.Starscream is finally done right (visually).Director of Kubo and the 2 Strings, Travis Knight.
Every trailer from the Micheal Bay verse all looked and sounded cool. The actual movies, the exact opposite.
Minimal Transformer activity.Still produced by Bay (TMNT 2014 and Out of the Shadows 2016). Yet Snyder was a producer on Wonder Woman (the Third Act).Movie has to be bound by Micheal Bay's rules, same way as Wonder Woman was bound by Zack Snyder (again the Third Act).Same Writer behind Shut in (2016) and Unforgettable (2017), Christina Hodson.Competing with 2 Disney films in December, Aqua-man and an animated Spider-man staring African Latino Miles Morales (Post-Black Panther Era).Batman v Superman criti
My DEADPOOL 2 ExperienceJMK here,
And man was this movie good! Better than good it was a once in a lifetime moment for me and the few people in the theatre. Now I will not review this movie nor give away any spoilers (by mistake) but I will tell you about the one thing that made this experience extra Marvel.
SO Before Deadpool 2 could play, the projector accidentally played Infinity War. It was only playing the opening part on board Thor's ship then they rectified it by finally playing Deadpool 2. I guess that Deadpool dream I had lead me to Sarit Centre (that local mall in my dream) for more reasons than one.
Best Marvel movie experience, second best Marvel movie experience I had in my life this year.
Seriously, Black Panther, Infinity War, Deadpool 2, Marvel is on a roll this year. Don't fuck it up now, Marvel. (Venom 2018, I am looking in your direction).
So how did your Deadpool experience go?
My Deadpool dream
Now that everyone is going out to see Deadpool in theatres, I just wanna share a dream I had about the Merc with a mouth.
So I just got done watching the film, as I exited my local mall I came face to face with Reynolds himself signing autographs in his suit, testicle skin and everything.
Me: Hi Ryan Reynolds.
Reynolds: Hey kid
Me: I just saw your movie. Wasn't quite what I expected it to be. (Early est screenings for DP 2 were considered negative)
Reynolds: Good for you.
Okay so I don't exactly remember how the conversation went but, that dream was a sign. That I should go see Deadpool here at home. And I will. Just wanted to get this out before it hits theatres here in Kenya.
Thanks for reading
My Little Pony: The Movie REVIEWJMK here,
with my second animated movie review of my first
2D theatrical movie experience. I am not gonna go in depth with this movie as I did the other movie, because unlike that movie, this franchise is has heart and I am a casual brony.
So here are my pros and cons abut the movie.
Sticks to the formula of the TV series
Awesome world building
Great new characters and designs
Zoe Saldana is cast as an outlaw, again.
Only one Hippogryph. Kinda lame.
Fluttershy and Applejack didn't recruit any friends
Movie needed more Fluttershy
Celestia stole Twilight's spot in the end credits
The storm king was less impressive than other villains who are less impressive than Discord.
DEBATE: Was Liev Schreiber a better villain here than in X-Men origins?
Usually great films are left
PPG-The Fourth Powerpuff Girl and C.N. rebootsJMK here,
Recently, I just got wind of Cartoon Network's latest 'publicity stunt': (link)
And at first I thought it was gonna be:
But instead in reality, all we got it is this:
(Not that the people leaking this info cared about the show. I guess they just want to hammer this show down as much as they can.)
And before I get into my thoughts on this latest animated 'WTF' fest, its time I gave my honest opinions on Cartoon Networks latest reboots.
On Cartoon Network's reboots
NB: There are two kinds of show that are in my mindset:
A deep show that I take seriously and
Hasbro sues DC Comics over 'Bumblebee'JMK here,
I didn't believe it until I read about it. Hasbro filed a lawsuit against DC Comics over the name "Bumblebee". Bumblebee. And here I thought after Sony's Emoji Movie, that nobody in the entertainment company would do anything that stupid. I mean could you tell the difference between these two characters ?:
I knew DC's Bumblebee when I first watched Young Justice 2014 in and she was around from 1977. I new Hasbro's Bumblebee from the first live action movie in 2007 and he was around since 1984.
Not only does the DC Super heroine have a longer legacy than the Cybertronian scout, the name 'Bumblebee' can bee...sorry be

DeviantArt, deviantART and Lots of Things TooWe're going to be DeviantArt, officially. But you can always call us deviantART. You'll get to be retro, and that's always... well, retro! This goes for DA and dA, too.
It was nice to see Moonbeam13 and starvingartist today in Toronto. We got some lunch. Then 'Beam was nice enough to drive me to the airport with Rob. Rob! Happy Birthday Moonbeam!
I'm in the sky eating a banana at the moment. I wonder what monkeys would make of me eating a banana at 30,000 feet. Let alone journaling on DA from here.
I was in Toronto visiting Autodesk, and the teams behind Sketchbook and Pixlr and other awesome apps they have. What wonderful people. I really enjoyed seeing what they're up to, it's all very exciting.
I've been hanging out on #devart on dAmn today, and I asked Pickley to pull together all the best scripts and projects out there that improve dAmn. This way DA can consider buying the code, interfaces, etc. and
Update from DD-Catalogue FounderDear All,
Thank you for 'watching' DD-Catalogue, and for all your support over the last 4 years. You may have noticed that the group has recently lost super group status. I'd like to apologise for the disruption this has caused to our Gallery and homepage. I'd also like to apologise for the lack of updates and features recently. I have neglected the group somewhat during my university study.
...but I'm planning a revamp to make it better than ever!
I would appreciate it if you could give me some feedback in the comments on some of the following:
What do you like most about DD-Catalogue?
What would you like to see from DD-Catalogue? (features/interviews/polls ??)
Would you donate a small amount towards Super Group status?
Would you like to be on the admin team?
Thanks for reading,
Add this Journal to your 'favourites' if we have your support in bringing DD-Catalogue back to life!
Open Sketchbook and New Auction soon!Open Sketchbook
Thanks to everyone who give me their advice on how to improve the auctions. Starting next week I will have stash folder with a few works in progress. The link will be public so everyone can visit it. I will ask your help to improve the designs so I can sell them in the next auction or in the "Logo Store" section I plan to open.
For safety reasons, the images won't be too big and they won't be online for too long.
Important to Commissioners
Hi everyone! To all my commissioners, please tell me if you wish to be contacted here, your email or some other way you feel it's more comfortable. I'm still awaiting an answer for many design approaches and that is delaying the work schedule. If there are sudden changes like leaving on vacations or need to postpone the project please feel free to tell me.
Remember that if I don't get an answer after 7 days I send the last design approach I consider the project ab
Happy 3rd Anniversary, Wyngro!Well, we got through year 3 of Wyngro everyone! I can’t tell you all how proud I am of all the artists that have joined this group in that amount of time, and how much you’ve all helped it grow. I’ve learned so much from this group, working with people, communication skills, organizing, art in general, (especially have gotten a lot better at color theory!) and just meeting and getting to know an assortment of interesting people.
I’m not gonna lie, there were a lot of really tough obstacles this year to get past, a lot of negative vibes, and a lot of people that have come and gone. I think that it’s a very easy option for a lot of leaders to abandon a project when things get tough and relationships get tested.
But like the cornball I am, I always think back to a quote from good old Dumbledore, where sometimes we must choose between what is easy and what is right.
Although it wasn’t easy, I worked through the struggles of toxic people and negativity, b
