Ellen talking a about foods from the 50s
I don’t like it.
Well. I guess Steven Moffat won’t be receiving a Christmas Card by this creator of his childhood any time soon…..
I totally agree with this. I hateeeeee the way Moffat writes. He took DW in a completely different direction that I just can’t get behind. People love Tennant not only because he was brilliant, but because his episodes and relationships were so much better. In recent episodes, I sometimes wonder what the heck I’m watching.

Batman is definitely not a cute guy. He’s too mopey.
As for books, I’m not sure what kind you read. I’m a YA fanatic, myself. Maggie Stiefvater books are my favorite. But I have plennnntttyyyyy of YA book suggestions if that’s what you want. Plenty.
The Night Circus is one of my favorite adult fantasy books, also.
infared-light said: Batman! **coughs into fist**
Batman is farrrr down on my list. :| Maybe I’ll get to him some day. I just started Kuroko no Basket. I tried Big Windup! first, but I just wasn’t feeling it at the moment. I’ve been so friggin busy this week and tonight is my first bit of free time. I just want to watch something with pretty boys and attractive animation. Out of those two animes, Kuroko wins.
Batman will come … eventually. Maybe. But if you’re looking for suggestions, have you watched Code Geass? One of my favorites.
Why do all these sports animes have exclamation points in their titles?
Haikyuu!! is so exciting it needs two exclamation points

It’s no bother! My biggest recommendation is to look into getting an internship your Junior or Senior year. I’m still working on weaseling my way into the industry myself. But, without my internship at Nickelodeon, I feel like that would be impossible. So if you’re looking at American internships, I’d apply for all of the studios you can think of—Nick, Disney, Pixar, Blue Sky, Cartoon Network, Dreamworks, etc. Apply for small ones, too. Maybe a smaller one your Junior year, then go for a bigger one your Senior year. If you don’t get one you want, apply again each semester. And you can still apply for these in the UK, too! Just research. Even if you start in the UK, you can always transfer to America at some point in your career.
Also, do your research on each studio. Write studio specific cover letters. Look on Glassdoor’s website at interview questions. I stalked tumblr and was actually lucky enough to find someone who interned on Korra before I went into my interview. I asked him some questions. So research-write an awesome resume and cover letter- research more because the internet is your friend- let your research pay off during your interview-get the internship-be awesome at it-make connection-get job.
That’s the best advice I have. Oh, and be nice. Seriously, just be a good person. Most people in animation are disgustingly nice, and they don’t want to deal with anyone’s crappy attitude or self entitlement.
Batman is not a sports anime!
Also, I’ve watched Free!, but I’ll check out Big Windup and Kuroko no Basket. I played basketball and softball, so maybe I’ll enjoy them. Thanks!
To the point where I’m obviously going to have to start reading it.
Apparently I like sport animes, now. So more recommendations?
