The fired all the 2D animators in 2011 I think. Only one is left. He is the only person allowed to design or color anything for animated characters at theme parks or posters.

I'm suddenly remembering the last years of Hastings. I seriously loved that store. Free Comic Book day would be 6 comics each person, so you brought friends and had the entire list to read. They had everything I could ever want. Then it went under.

Now I'm watching comic shops and GameStop following the same. It's really sad, because it's like a fruit at its best right before it turns to mush and falls off the tree.

They were the Archie rivals of the regular comics. Betty didn't see that coming.

I want to also mention I loved Encarta and the other CD magazines of that era. I still wish we could have it back.

OpenAI showed it's hand way too soon. Too many programs are catching up with it. If they tried to regulate it, I expect the Music companies vs downloading programs again. You defeated one and then Kazaa another appears.

I agree about the architecture firms. It will be pretty terrible to watch. I expect a lot of indie contracts for the field.

It's a weird robot. They have a picture of what looks like robotic poop. It's literally a shit robot, but somebody has to invent it.

It's the difference between actual random and a randomizer. If you wrote rand(1,10) it will choose 7 the majority of the time. So if you told a program to make art, it will make the same art with a slight variation. AI is taking everything labeled within the words and combining them into a single image with parameters for artistic use.

While reading this I was watching the local news. Downtown Orlando is angry that there are shootings and that they need to have a curfew to stop them.

The police have a kicks for guns and gas for guns promotion running right now. Yes, nice sneakers for guns.

Meanwhile, where I live, we have to tell the neighbors to stop shooting past a certain hour because it wakes us up.

I had a class like this. It had a BS name about Computers in it, so I took it.

It's setting up a second empire. Movements like this happened in Europe when the empires didn't have anymore places to take over. They started to play against each other for land. It was part of the set up for World War I.

What does Cookers stand for? I'm guessing it has something to do with Captain Cook who explored a ton of the Pacific, Americas, and bits of Australia. He died by pissing off Hawaiians.

In Florida there is the term Cracker and it's used openly and proudly by some. It weirds me out because the only real term I get is that I'm German and must be a Nazi.

You're living through what it was like being artsy and in Seattle. I kept my head down, and never mentioned my politics. The arts scene in Florida has some of the same lunatics, but I can also talk fairly openly with most friends without fear of reprisal.

It had been moved a few times. I decided Social Media when I had more than one post for it.
