“Many VFX artists working on Disney’s Marvel projects are speaking out about the awful crunch time, poor working conditions and unrealistic deadlines on the part of Disney. Will Disney address this or simply take note of who to fire?”

What did they expect?…Of course, it’s going to be extremely demanding…

…I’m just a freaking blogger/webmaster on the internet, with a little bit of programming training [not enough, or recent enough to be competent at it]…and even I know, working with media is insanely time consuming and demanding…Having to create it?…and special effects?…The job is going to be your life.

If they’re paying you money for your work, and they expect to make profit off of it…and there’s insane amounts of money on the line…Well…yeah…Duh!…

…You have to be pretty dim or completely oblivious to how things work, not to understand they’re expecting you to work your ass off.

I’m shocked anyone would walk into such a field of work, without knowing what they’re walking into first.

“One of the most bizarre trends of the early to mid 60s were the so-called “Death Discs”, also known as “Splatter Platters”. Many of these songs were even banned by radio stations, which only helped increase their appeal to teenagers. Let’s take a look at some of the best morbid pop songs of the 60s.”

‘Doesn’t even finish out this term’: Rumours Joe Biden might go before 2024…

“Recastled CEO Kosha Gada says “it’s not looking pretty” for Joe Biden as his approval rating slips again – setting up three potential scenarios for the embattled US President.

“Either he does run again … Bill Clinton was actually at a similar rate and he went on to win re-election … most people would agree Biden is not Bill Clinton but theoretically it’s possible,” Ms Gada told Sky News host Andrew Bolt.

“The second scenario is he finishes out his term and then steps aside and then other people from the Democrat bench vie for the job.

“And then the third scenario … is that he doesn’t even finish out this term and potentially he steps aside after the midterm elections coming up in November.

“Which paves the way for Kamala Harris to take that top job and then vie for election and that sets up a whole different scenario we have seen in US history but it makes a lot of people very nervous.”

The Netherlands seems to be ‘sliding into dictatorship’: Rowan Dean…

“Sky News host Rowan Dean says the Netherlands seems to be sliding into dictatorship under Prime Minister Mark Rutte as its national government has been “penetrated by globalist activists from the World Economic Forum”.

“Currently the Dutch government is embarked upon insane efforts to slash greenhouse gases and reduce the amount of nitrogen ammonia in the soil by 30 to 70 per cent by 2030,” Mr Dean said.

“The Netherlands House of Representatives has released a statement which said: ‘The honest message is that not all farmers will continue in business. Those who do will have to farm differently'”.

“Wow – just think about that.”

…You don’t say…

…They’re puting MAPs in prison in the Netherlands, for the “crime” of talking about things, and standing up for themselves…

…This host likely wont ever talk about that, though.

“GameStop is laying off tons of employees, both in stores and from Game Informer. Its plan? To chase NFTs… despite the market being basically worthless now. GameStop seems to be a on a suicide run here…”

This makes me sad.

I don’t go into video game stores anymore…I don’t have the spare money for it…And I know this day was coming…But I have a lot of good memories, from time spent at GameStop.
