Sam’s flask says “Sam’a Jam’a CoMe On AnD SaM AnD WeLcOmE tO THE SAM” which is a Space Jam reference, and also horrendous. The back is a code (by which I mean Wingdings 2) which reads “Basketvall is life” The job’s been pretty good. Here’s a reminder that if you’ve been hanging on to your mail-in ballots and intend to send them in the mail, this week would be a good time to do it. You can also drop them off at early voting places and at your polling place on election day. Any moments I missed? Feel free to post them here. Is it Thursday yet?

  • I’m actually kinda curious - would roads in Palebank Village be that dirty and slushy as Matt described? I assume the temperatures there are always below 0 ºC, and considering it’s positioned on a cliff (so a bit away from water) and also has a rather small population (so roads don’t get disturbed much), I imagine snow wouldn’t really have a reason to melt and turn to mush?

    Ara AraAra AraPäivä sitten
    • On second thought, the ocean isn’t frozen there, so maybe temperatures are above 0 after all? Hmm...

    • Well I mean.....certain parts of it can be accelerated with more hands. For the embroidery, if you get someone to detail it all in wash pen or grease pencil and then pass each of the anywhere from 3/4 (if it’s just the coat hem and it’s a simple coat) on up through 9 (if she also wanted sleeve embroidery-IDR-and a more complex cut or coat) individual panels to 3-9 separate embroiderers, the drawing ensures consistency and it’s as many as 9 more hands to get it done. When assembling you can have one person assembling the sleeves, one sewing together the collar/hood, one sewing together the torso panels, and one on “skirt” bottom, and if needed one to do belts and other accents. That’s again 4, and then two of these could sew together the finished sections. The money buys the extra labour and labourers’ time to finish the garment. This only really works with “crafts” and not things like fine arts-painting, drawing, etc.

  • There are a few key differences that I am surprised were not added to the intro. The two biggest changes I feel should be made is Yasha's new wings, and Fjord's Star Razor. I also feel like it would be appropriate to incorporate Veth as a halfling (not every clip but maybe at the end or something). I feel the sword and wings are big ones though. I understand animation is difficult, I'm just surprised that they made the changes that they did first. Still gave me goosebumps though. I love the new characters they featured at the end!
