Hi! I'm a self-employed illustrator
I enjoy discussing/learning about/posting:
Star Trek - I love all the series so far (DS9 is my fave)
Non-Eurocentricity and genuine representation of it in the arts.
Also, Language - which I suck at. But its so interesting!
Current obsessive art / worldbuilding / poetry project: https://www.instagram.com/oh_hai_ku/

Also, while I'm on the subject, I only saw it once, quite a while ago, but I thought the Super Mario Bros movie was kinda GOOD.
In that it at least had some pretty fun ideas conceptually/visually etc. I can't remember any specifics - something about the way they communicate/their phones was fun though.
Detective Pikachu (3) Show more
That said, it looks like they might just be repeating themselves. I guess in 1993, Tim Burton was popular and they wanted to translate their primary-coloured game into that scene. And now they're trying to put the utopia of Pokémon into a grittier, more real-life setting with the godawful grey colorisation that Hollywood thinks people like
(maybe people do like it, I dunno. I think it's a shallow way to ground a movie in reality/add 'grittiness')
Detective Pikachu (2) Show more
I dunno how this stuff is produced etc - but if Nintendo are involved in any way, that's a big thing, and maybe explains why they've gone with the style of a Marvel movie with (only slightly, IMO) worse CGI.
To my knowledge, Nintendo's first and last movie attempt was "Super Mario Bros" (1993) which went for a completely dark/gross take on them and was probably appreciated by nobody at the time.
So I guess they're going with 'safe mainstream' than 'screwball cult movie'
Detective Pikachu Show more
I know I'm always talking shit about cash-cow, mainstream franchise movies, let alone ones that also look crap (aesthetically) - but I'm at LEAST going to stream Detective Pikachu.
I do think it's a shame they've gotten it produced as such - I've always wished Pokémon went out and did something different with/expand the franchise narrative/concept-wise - the youngest of us OG fans are in our mid-late 20's now. So at least it's a fun small step in itself!
The discovery that your bones have a yearbook and they all signed encouraging notes to each other. The world's last milkman and the world's most indulgent cow and a tiny cottage where a Victrola plays a single yodeling song: domestic bliss. The lark and the elm and the ants. Wind scatters snapshots of a young couple & their puppets: Mr. Ears. Timothy Tiger. He-Tastes-Secrets. An unnamed bear. The photos are on a film type they don't make anymore. We're still here. You're still here.

Lots of accounts on Birdsite too.
Not all #StarTrek related but it features highly.
Star Trek (and science fiction/ fantasy) is my escape and my favourite form of therapy.
When I was a kid I thought my Dad was Spock.
My kids thought I was Captain Janeway.
It's particularly entertaining watching him put down everyone else's designs if you remember the stuff they came up with on Changing Rooms. Here's a refresher: https://www.buzzfeed.com/scottybryan/open-your-eyes
If, like me, you loved the cheerful awfulness of Changing Rooms back in the day you might like to know that Laurence Llewellyn Bowen (in full Disney villain mode) is currently presiding over more terrible against-the-clock interior design in The Apartment on Netflix https://www.netflix.com/gb/title/80989867
