    ah yes the gallup poll

    that is all well and fine but i am willing to bet a not insignificant percentage of those in the "no" column have a tenuous grasp of socialism

    and likely benefit from socialist programs in america

    yes the "americans are idiots, if they only really knew what they believed they'd agree with me" argument.

    I'm not a fan.

    You know about the polls that said Americans like everything obamacare does when listed out separately

    But when asked about obamacare as a whole people were against it


    Lol

    I mean, yeah.

    People like free stuff.

    They weren't so thrilled at getting a big fine for not opting in.

    But yes, that was true.

    That certainly is an interpretation ha

    my employer pays for half my retirement and medicare

  • VanguardVanguard A wretched country of duskRegistered User, __BANNED USERS regular
    I pay for water service, my police, fire, and ambulance service, my local schools, social security and medicare, medicaid, the US military, etc etc

    all of these are social services provide by my government (which I own and pay for) for the benefit of myself and my fellow citizens

    much of this would even be considered "socialism"

    none of it is "free"

    to boil it down it "people like free stuff" tells me that you either don't respect the opinions being written about in this conversation or you are uninterested in joining the conversation in a serious manner and are having a laff

    Winky keep in mind that Miyazaki was also saying that stuff in the 1980s - his reflective essay on the life of Tezuka was entirely framed around him saying things like "everything Tezuka said or thought was wrong", that Tezuka's work had ruined the Japanese animation industry, etc. There's another essay published in 1982 where he derides animation that isn't within his specific vision, and says that the advent of home video will finally be the death knell of bad/limited animation (since it will just start cannibalising itself) and he can start getting stuff he likes out there.

    There's definitely changes that happened in the period, and the presentation I'm giving at a conference next week is mostly about the changes in narrative structure that changed between the pre- and post-1990s, but Miyazaki has always loathed the animation industry spawned by "Tezuka's curse" (aka anything limited animation).

    Alright, so after reading this post I wiki'd Tezuka to see what else he'd made besides for Astroboy and Metropolis, and I'm ashamed to learn that he had made a film in 1970 called "Cleopatra: Queen of Sex" and I didn't even know about it!

    It's really bad - it was made as part of Tezuka desperately scrounging for money wherever he could, and it was a dismal failure.

    Tezuka: really influential dude, but maybe that wasn't for the best in some ways

    Simon did I ever link to you to the interview between Urasawa and Eguchi?

    They have some pretty hilarious Tezuka anecdotes.

    If you did, I've completed spaced on it! Link me up, buttercup

    re: obamacare subway sandwiches

    perhaps this slippery slope is related to distrust of socialists

    https://mangabrog.wordpress.com/2015/05/17/naoki-urasawa-and-hisashi-eguchi-talk-about-manga-in-the-70s-and-80s-mostly-otomo/
    Urasawa: It was Hergé and early Tezuka that I was channeling when I drew that part. Boy, though, Tezuka’s art back then was just lovely.

    Eguchi: Tezuka can seriously draw. His lines are erotic.

    Urasawa: His art is just really pleasing.

    Eguchi: Tezuka was much more about the pictures back then. Then he started claiming that the pictures in manga were nothing more than symbols, and manga in Japan started becoming simplified into stories and characters. I feel like it was the New Wave that helped bring manga back around to the artwork. Takano sort of did that, too — bringing things back to early Osamu Tezuka. So I can totally understand why Tezuka was so jealous of Otomo. On the train ride here I was reading this interview with Tezuka in this magazine about the New Wave, and there are like four times where in a really roundabout way he just keeps refusing to accept Otomo. (laugh) He’s like, “Of course young people are going to be producing original work — I want to reserve my judgment of Otomo for ten years from now.” I mean, come on. (laugh)

    Urasawa: Tezuka went to his grave claiming that he could see going as far as creating Akira through a flukeish inspiration, and he wanted to judge Otomo based on his post-Akira work. (laugh)

    Eguchi: There’s about six pages to this interview, and he spends pretty much the entire time refusing to acknowledge Otomo. I found it absolutely hilarious, reading it on the train here.

    Urasawa: Sheer jealousy.

    A trap is for fish: when you've got the fish, you can forget the trap. A snare is for rabbits: when you've got the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words are for meaning: when you've got the meaning, you can forget the words.
