A Floundering idea

I love Flounder as a mermaid. I came up with the idea now a couple of years ago. I wanted it to be a thing, kind of like how Bowsette became a thing, despite not being an official thing.

Hopefully one day I can get more commissions… and hey, maybe one day someone will cosplay as her… you never know… it could happen?

I’ve toyed with the idea of maybe making an art contest over her… maybe with a cash prize? I don’t know how to go about that, or even if there would be any interest in such a thing.

Anyways, I didn’t really have anything new to post for Mer-Monday, but wanted to share the idea that maybe I should do a contest? Thoughts? Concerns? Comments?

Ghibli Girls

Can we just, on this ‘Feminist Friday,’ just take a pause from the serious, and remember how good Studio Ghibli’s girl characters are? Below are some of the ones that I think are the best.

arriettyNow, I’m not sure if my favorite is Kiki, the witch from Kiki’s Delivery Service, or Arrietty, a tiny character from The Borrowers universe in The Secret World of Arrietty, but it is definitely one of those two.

I like Arrietty, in general, because of all of the visuals you can do when a characters is that small but world is just that big.

kiki deliveryNow for Kiki… Ooo… that movie. For starters, the voice cast is interesting, given that they chose Phil Hartmen in the American dub to play her cat familiar. I mean… it’s his last movie before his untimely death! Then you have Kirsten Dunst as Kiki when she was still a starry eyed kid who had never been in a Spider-Man movie. Now, I could go in depth about how there are two different versions of the dub, one with cute songs in it or the one that is closer to the Japanese movie in style… but I wont, as that would be pointless. It’s a good movie… go and watch it?

princess-mononokeMost of Ghibli’s films star young women on some sort of coming of age adventure, and that’s why I just wanted to talk about them, even if just real quick. I need to watch more films by Studio Ghibli… possible even play Ni no Kuni on PS3…

My opinion of Mount Rushmore

0821172042bMount Rusmore, in beautiful South Dakota, is a controversial landmark. Supposedly, this mountain that had some of the greatest men who will ever live in The United States, was made from a sacred Native American mountain. I suppose I should feel bad about this. I guess I should, but their answer to this landmark is Crazy Horse, which… just look at this thing…

Two wrongs should never make a right, and Crazy Horse is just going to be ridiculous if it is ever finished in my lifetime! The founding father’s… well… let’s see how big they are on their mountain…

I mean… Rusmore is kind of big, I suppose… but Crazy Horse Memorial is sheesh… the entire mountain. Maybe that mountain is not as sacred? I dunno. Some extreme liberals in our country want to blow Rushmore up, but probably have never even driven to it. If they had, they would definitely see Crazy Horse and feel conflicted. Also, I would like to note that there are some pro-Native American crafts inside of the gift shop… but the one I saw was actually from Indonesia. *sigh*

Okay, but so the statue is racist because it has some slave owners on it? All right… and the person who ABOLISHED SLAVERY. You could quite literally see the statue as a left to right timeline of where we had been, a President who reluctantly took the slaves he was given, mostly from his marriage, to the President who freed them, so that argument doesn’t hold up.

Stone Mountain GeorgiaNow if you want to get rid of a statue that Gutzon Borglum, creator of Mount Rushmore, made, get rid of Stone Mountain in Atlanta, GA. It has 4 confederate generals carved into it, it was commissioned and paid for by members of The KKK, which Borglum had both been associated with, and was at least a former member of, and was at one time supposed to also have a KKK alter on. Mind you, Borglum later left the project because he and the people providing the money for it ::cough:: THE KKK ::cough:: stopped seeing eye to eye, and it was finished by Henry Augustus Lukeman.

thomas paineLook, Boglum was a member of The KKK, sure. Wasn’t at the end but he was sympathetic a bit towards the new version of them, sure. This guy though, he even made a statue of Thomas Paine, who wanted to end slavery. You can not say Borglum made statues of people who hated black people for people who hated black people because he hated black people.

Look, even Hitler, and yes mentioning Hitler invalidates my previous arguments, but even Hitler did Disney fan art, and I would not wish that his terrible art be destroyed. Heck, even the art of Charles Manson should not be destroyed.

In other words, leave Mount Rushmore alone. It is literally the only thing that South Dakota has going for it. The people who love the statue… they still have to live in South Dakota or even visit there, and isn’t that punishment enough?

The Disney Afternoon collection

Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers, Chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers 2, Darkwing Duck, DuckTales, DuckTales 2, and TailSpin all legally running on your Xbox One, PS4, or PC via Steam. When: April 18th. How much? $19.99

Given that the first DuckTales game was given an HD Remaster a few years back, this comes as a surprise! Perhaps other properties that Capcom has worked on will get a collection of some sort, such as Little Nemo: The Dream MasterWho Framed Roger Rabbit, or Willow.

Hopefully this will be popular enough to warrant another collection so they can release these following Disney Afternoon games as well: Aladdin (Genesis) Aladdin (SNES) Goof Troop (SNES), Bonkers (SNES) Gargoyles (Genesis) and The Little Mermaid (NES).
