Arts and Entertainment / TR: The Role Playing Game

Inb4 anime was a mistake, etc.

So I just plowed through the 4 episodes of the Castlevania show on Netflix, and this was the first anime series I have watched in a long, long time.  Some random questions/observations in no particular order:

  • Animation seems to have changed quite a bit -- it looks, I dunno, more jerky? Like, if I were to use a video game term, it feels like the animation in this show is at a lower frame rate than what I remember.  If I compare Cvania to, say, Ninja Scroll, the latter seems to have much smoother animation, as if they have simply drawn more frames. 
  • In the same vein, older classics like Ninja Scroll and Vampire Hunter D seem to be much flatter in their drawings.  Newer creations are more detailed, and have more depth.
  • Am I wrong about these above two things?
  • One of the things that used to annoy me about older anime was the reusing of frames and sequences to draw something out. For example, this scene in Ninja Scroll where they basically just recycle the same ninja asset a few times.  There doesn't seem to be any of that in Cvania -- is that a new thing? Or did they just not use it here?
  • Likewise, Cvania does not have any of those long pause scenes (I don't know what the fuck they are called) where the screen freezes except for one or two things moving.  I'm sure there's a technical term for that, but I don't know what the fuck it is.  Anyway, they seemed really popular back in the day, but I don't think I saw one in this show.  Is that the new normal?
  • Voice acting is much better now. 
  • Color palettes seem much more saturated and, I dunno, "digital"?  Really bright blues, reds, and greens.
  • The Castlevania show is pretty good, especially for old fans.  I just wish it was longer than 4 episodes, that feels kinda lame.
Politics and Current Events / Removing Assad
So, sounds like this might happen.  I mean, Trump has been monumentally full of shit on so many things up to this point, he might just be instructing his administration to say things like what Tillerson just said, hoping everyone will forget or giving him enough breathing room to maneuver into another, better lie.

Or, we might have a fucking carrier over there on Monday.

Also, Trump is just the worst kind of pussified bullshitter.

"He's there, and I guess he's running things, so something should happen."

You guess he is running things?  Something "should happen"?  Way to take the leadership role there, triple-chins!
Science / Black holes
I keep having dreams about black holes, they are fascinating to me but since I'm an idiot, I'm not sure I understand them.

I get that they are not "holes" per se, but regions that absorb matter and energy.  But what does that mean -- how does a region absorb anything? 

Also, I get that they can grow but do they just keep growing?  Is there an end state for a black hole? If they just keep growing and growing, wouldn't the universe eventually become one giant black hole, or a least a region of black holes surrounded by empty space (presumably with the black holes being far enough away from each other so as not to collide, etc).

What gives with these fuckers?

Introductions / Hey raven
This board software looks nicer than that other horrible shit we used for however many years. Good job.
