In 1954, Betty White was criticized for having a black tap dancer, Arthur Duncan, on her show.
“I’m sorry. Live with it.” Was her response, before she gave Arthur even more screen time.
Betty White lived a full, incredible life in comedy, acting, and entertainment. She was devoted to the causes she believed in, such as animal rights, and wasn’t afraid to fight for what she knew was right, no matter what. She was an optimistic, generous, talented woman and will live forever in our hearts.
I can’t believe it was kept in the wraps for 2 weeks... but I’m a bit flabbergasted and still processing that Kentaro Miura has passed away.
It’s pretty easy to understate how big his influence is in art. Without him, we wouldn’t get Dark Souls and Bloodborne, and the animators and artists of Castlevania explicitly said he was in an influence in their work.
Miura, in my opinion, had one of the greatest eyes for detail and some STRONG, STRONG, STRONG visual imagery almost untouched by... well a lot of people really.
He pushed the visual imagery of fantasy and horror in new and exciting ways, and it’s a test to his timeless writing that we’re still invested in Berserk for decades.
On today 12/31/21 it was announced that actress Betty White passed away at age 99 weeks before turning 100. She worked on many films and tv shows and was one of my favorite actresses, and this probably isn't the news you'd want to hear going into the new year but may she rest in peace.
