When I tell you I snorted!
This post is like getting pelted with marshmallows shot out of a tennis ball launcher
The inevitable reboot better go for these looks.
Frodo’s bizarre adventure
So… Welcome back to the fire, friendos.
There’s a lot to unpack, and I’m gonna get some Me stuff out of the way first:
1. FOLLOW @isas-theory-wall, for all your ego theorist update needs all condensed in one place and neatly tagged! I’ve had A LOT of new followers since the last time theorizing was relevant, so please follow follow follow!!
2. NEW TAG ON THAT BLOG: “#2020 goes out with a bang.” Anything from now until New Years will be tagged with that!
So… speaking of anything happening now–
MARVIN. FINALLY, AFTER 4 YEARS, MARVIN.
This image was posted by Sean in the ego panic room in the Official JSE Discord. What we see-
- A magic 8 ball? Crystal ball?
- A spellbook that I THINK might have runes or something on the front but they’re at an angle which I can’t really see what they are.
NOT ONLY THAT-
In October LAST YEAR, Chase’s return was teased the same way!!
We’re getting a Marvin short!!
But I’m confused?? Sean said
(possibly more than once)that Jackie would be the next ego we’d see. OBVIOUSLY he can change his mind and he might’ve (and that’s 100% okay!!), but as a Jackie stan I’ve been clinging to that tidbit of information all year so I’m surprised we’re being teased with Marvin. But GOD am I thrilled to FINALLY have some new fire to burn in nonetheless!!
I also have a couple really random but probably inaccurate thoughts about this-
- Halloween this year is a full blue moon. That’s big witchy stuff right there. The Blue Moon on Oct. 31, 2020 will be the first full moon on Halloween in 76 years. Kinda fitting for Marvin if he’s appearing in 3 days, isn’t it?
(As I said in the thread I linked)The thumbnail from Sean’s Month Break Return looked very Marvin-y to some of the community.
Personally, I didn’t think it was anything
(at least from what I remember). I’m still very skeptical. But… That title and thumbnail are pretty fitting for this nonetheless, ain’t it? (Also mentioned in the thread I linked)We DID get Marvin’s card suits presented to us in Jameson’s return video last year too!
So let’s all enjoy this fire together like the good ol times. :) Happy Halloween, y’all.
Me, chewing on my Bad Decisions™ Bagel in the corner:
The Universe: What’s that in your mouth?
Me, chewing faster:
- Blythe Baird
The Universe: I said, WHAT THE FUCK IS IN YOUR MOUTH
This was already amazing. But that reblog comment and the extra they hid in the tags (for some unfathomable reason) makes this fucking hilarious and I love it even more. XD
The Universe: WHERE DID YOU FIND ANOTHER SWEET POTATO?!
This is what I got as the symbols on the book cover. The parts that I circled in blue are parts that I am not sure how they work with the other symbols.
I think the first symbols on the cover looks like a simpler version of the first symbol on the bottom of the page and I think the second symbol on the cover could be half of the second on the page. I am going to now see what I can get from the book so hopefully I will have another post soon
SO, hehehehhe, great news is that the lovely @cgbk10 Let me do another carvin of their art this year and I AM SO HONORED AND HAPPY!!!!
It’s of an older piece but a lovely one and it really gave me an idea what I can do and I gotta say, lol, it was a difficult one. I loved the challenge though!
So I got the stencil as per usual. I had to separate it into two pieces cause I wanted to be difficult.and had to cut out things slowly. Some stuff is a bit scrunched cause of how flat doesn’t work well on round but it’s there!
One half done!
I fudged up on a piece so I had to remind myself of it but other than that, it was done!
Here it is thinned out! My hand fucking hurts!!! Took me days for the stencil to work and another few days to get this but I LOVE IT! Even though Schneep’s hat is…. thinner than it should be… hhhhh.
MUEHEHEHEHEHE IT’S SO PRETTY!!!!!!!!!!!! Even with one little piece that popped off…. but it’s OKAY!
Thank you again K10 for allowing me to do this! I wanna do this every year honestly because it is so damn fun! HAPPY HALLOWEEN EVERYONE!!!!!
Duuude! That’s awesome!!
marvel: ‘infinity war is the most ambitious crossover event in history’
It’s true! Especially given a) the technology they had at the time to pull this off, and b) that they had characters from TWO separate companies as opposed to different characters from the same comics publisher.
So yeah, Roger Rabbit wins the ambitious crossover award, hands down. Sorry Marvel.
The agreement with Disney and Warner Bros was that they could only use their biggest characters (Mickey and Donald, Bugs and Daffy) if the other corrosponding character had the exact same amount of screentime. This is why, in the movie, Bugs and Mickey are sharing scenes, and Daffy and Donald are sharing scenes.
It’s also worth mentioning that every single animator in the industry that wasn’t already working on something was called in to work on this film. EVERY. SINGLE. ONE.
take a look at this crowd shot
that’s nuts! It’s also a legitimately great movie, a noir comedy that ties in the actual history of Los Angeles alongside the history of animation comfortably alongside the gratuitous silliness. And Bob Hoskins is a fucking CHAMP for his acting in this, one of the earlier examples of green-screen acting with characters who mostly aren’t there and he can make you totally forget that he can’t see what’s happening a lot of the time.
Bob Hoskins is also a fucking champ because what he could see was Charles Fleischer (Roger Rabbit) delivering lines off-camera dressed like this:
This was his work environment.
A casual reminder that this was LONG before inter-company crossovers became a thing. The very idea of Bugs and Mickey officially sharing screen time was UNTHINKABLE in the 80s. And then throw in Betty Boop, Droopy Dog, Woody Woodpecker, and Felix the Cat, all from different studios/rightsholders? Yowza. (If only King Features had let them put Popeye in.)

The first sigil seems to have a rune -
Othala and Ingwaz I believe?
The pther seems to have Mannaz and an infinity symbol… If you would ask me, the arrow pointing down makes it look like something is either binded or brought forward, or so I would do making my own sigils… The first one looks like a protection sigil or a ward…
HOLD HORSE, I found some stuff in my own grimoire - so the infinity un Wiccan symbolism stands for the cosmic energy (but also infinity)
And the symbol above it looks like the symbol for Alembic In alchemy
The philosphers stone is known to also have transmutive powers (say turning silver into gold). I will do more research into this.
Wait where’s the spellbook stuff coming from???
Today’s one is from Sean’s instagram. and last night there was a similar image on the discord.
