AAl's Tumblr

Sometimes it takes me awhile to come around to the things everyone else is doing. I think I "get" Tumblr now, so I'm'a give this thing a try.

Also, don't be offended if I don't follow you - I have a million Tumblrs in my RSS reader already, so double-following just doesn't make sense. I assure you, though - if I know you, I'm probably following you.

This is the ridiculous visual tool I use to plan and keep track of each episode of Sarcastic Voyage. An entirely green board is good — that means the episode’s completely ready.

I give myself maybe a few hours to bask in the accomplishment of an all-green board before I reset the thing and start again. Ever forward, after all.

Like the man said: “what’s next?”

Matt loves Blossom, Dottie and Gary go on an adventure and an extended look at SVFM’s lineup. Click!

If I’m being honest, this is one of the best episodes we’ve done in awhile.

After much ado, here is the first picture from my new elf series. The model is Kimby, the poor fool who let me experiment with spirit gum. 
Photo by AS aka Wren in 2014 and it belongs to me. For more go to giantblackalbatross.tumblr.com. Flower crown by Bunny Bubbles.

Just in case you needed more proof that, Cobra Commander is in fact, a bad guy.

Today marks a quarter century since the release of the Beastie Boys’ Paul’s Boutique.
25 years ago today, I literally snuck to the record store to purchase this album. I was kind of terrified of losing cred with the mullets-and-black-t-shirt crowd I was hanging with in those days, so I took the shortcut home through the woods, tore open the CD longbox (remember those ridiculous things?) and discarded it in a stream. (I didn’t give a hoot.) I got home, waited till the house was empty, slipped on my headphones and fired the sucker up.
It’s never left my side since.
Plenty of things in life bring me joy in one way or another, but Paul’s Boutique is that singular work of art that I always feel connected to and never get sick of. It makes me happy when I’m sad and makes me happier when I’m already happy. It inspires me and it energizes me.
Plus, it has some pretty good jokes about eggs.

“They must have a lot of free time,” is the most insulting thing you can say about a creative person of any kind. They only have as much time as you; maybe less. They just have a passion and decided to make the time for it. It’s not “free” time. It’s hard-won.

Captain Picard watches the season 2 finale.

*dies laughing*

…the hell? The season 2 finale was Shades of Gray, aka The One Where Riker Has Flashbacks. I recall no near-kisses and almost no stabbing.

Or is this a Tumblr thing now: just assuming whatever thing you’re a fan of is a thing everyone else will immediately recognize?

When all the jobs belong to robots, do we still need jobs?

Zeynep Tufekci’s scathing response to the establishment consensus that tech will create new jobs to replace the ones we’ve automated away makes a lot of good points.

Read more…

I thought about this a lot when designing a future society for my web comic. There comes a point in automation, probably sooner than we think, when work as we know it isn’t really necessary… what do people do then?

This is one of the things we discuss on the Post Atomic Horror a fair amount — the utopian society depicted in Star Trek is one in which nobody is required to work. (This is less to do with automation and more to do with the fact that they have effectively unlimited power sources and the technology to replicate resources and luxury from scratch.) We’ve never really been clear on what people are supposed to do in a civilization like that. Since the shows pretty much only follow people who volunteered to be explorer/soldiers, we really have almost no idea what the vast majority of people do with their time. It’s one of those things that we probably spend far too much time thinking about and discussing, but it really is fascinating to us.
