Saw this suggested somewhere else, but…
With 9 lives, beat a boss who gives you cube of meat, then kill yourself (Dr Fetus, Ipecac, even just bombs if you have Pyro or something).
It’s what I would like to call Double Meat Boy if that didn’t sound like the mascot for the sort of fast food place where a vampire slayer might choose to work.
I really felt like I was getting one over on the game.
Until I accidentally blew myself up in the first room on the next floor with my own bomb.
Why is everyone following me?
I never do shit interesting.
I can’t believe that this is stop-motion.
I CAN’T UNDERSTAND FUCKING STOP-MOTION THOSE FINGERS SHOULD FALL RIGHT OFF BUT NO THEY SUPPORT THEMSELVES BEAUTIFULLY
WHAT THE ACTUALLY FUCK STOP MOTION
The fingers are being supported by armature wire. Virtually all stop motion puppets have some variety of this going on underneath it:
Given the proportions of Burton’s creations, the armatures underneath his puppets are probably custom-made.
What you’re also looking at is a ton of replacement animation on that teddy bear. Instead of actually tearing open the bear model, someone, or a few people, carefully crafted a handful of that specific bear at various stages of being cut open. If you look closely, the slab it’s on moves slightly, which gives itself away.
Also, Jack’s speaking is done through replacement animation.
Stop motion utterly fascinates me.
GOD BLESS YOU
THIS IS THE THING I DONT GET ABOUT STOP MOTION
YOU HAVE TO PHYSICALLY MOVE THE DOLLS WITH UR HANDS AND REPLACE THEIR FACES //HOW DO YOU KEEP THEM IN THE SAME SPOT??????//
stop motion people are crazy
I’m visiting my folks for the weekend, and any departure from the norm for me is always an excuse to buy good, comics or toys. This time I ended up with the latter - I was vaguely aware of these Thundercats lucky dip things because I ordered a Panthro off eBay or somewhere for my sister.
Anyway, I got them back and excitedly opened them and found… Lion-O.
Ok, no big deal, I would have preferred almost any of the others (any but Slithe, at least), but still two more to go.
Open the second one, and I can already kind of feel the shape through the package and I’m already thinking “fuck yeah, Cheetara” but then I open it and she’s some crazy semi-transparent monochrome thing. Kind of looks like a blacker version of the progeny of Cheetara and Shadow Mario from Super Mario Sunshine (and what was up with that as well? ‘oh shit sorry Mario, we thought you were the bad guy… Only now you come to mention it be WAS transparent and blue. It’s an easy mistake to make’).
Anyway, reeling from this one-two punch in the way that only a child or an adult with the mental age of one could, I tore into the final pack. Surely it was my time, surely the CatGods were about to reward me for my faith through these arduous trials - I could almost smell the Panthro already.
And there it was, in the palm of my hand.
Another fucking Lion-O.
