Oliver Cromwell Did Nothing Wrong

I won’t admit this in public but when I first saw the American Idiot cover in fourth grade I thought it was cool and edgy and I still like the album

Friend: hey wanna share a coke
Me: You refute your own request to share in the fruits of my labour and thus violate my natural rights. It is a contradiction to justify shared property in argumentative terms when the very notion of argumentation presupposes private property, so to speak.

Around April of last year my friend, Jamie Vickers, encouraged Ben Li and I to apply to animate on Masaaki Yuasa’s “Space Dandy” episode.  Yuasa-san was apparently looking for international animators and posted about it on his Facebook wall.  We turned in our reels and promptly got the gig.

I decided to only take on four shots just to feel it out and to make sure I got it all in on time. 

The Carpaccio animation and shadow passes weren’t used in the final cut, but I decided to include them for this post to show what was turned in and approved.  The rest of the drawings I did came through though!  Very exciting to see the final animation all cleaned up, colored and cut together.

Yuasa-san was very open to us using Flash to animate our shots.  The production took the final keys (genga’s), printed them out, retraced onto paper and inbetweened those drawings.  It’s a pretty wild pipeline, but it totally worked.  I am grateful to have experienced working under one of my most favorite directors, Masaaki Yuasa-san.  

If granted the opportunity I would like to do more animations for Yuasa-san and other overseas productions in the future.  For now I will continue working on my personal project that I aim to get done before the end of the year.

Still don’t get the concept of the “Petrodollar”

ordnungsokonomik:

I must be missing something important, hopefully someone can explain this to me.

If the Saudis agree to price their oil in dollars, that essentially places their oil in the same situation as goods produced in America. If the money supply doubles, the price of American goods double, including Saudi oil. This is no different than if the Saudis didn’t price their goods in dollars but in some other currency, since a doubling of the money supply would cause the exchange rate of the dollar to fall by half. Either way the price of oil would double in dollar terms. So there is definitely no sense in which the petrodollar allows inflation to be exported.

The only way inflation could be exported is if the price of oil in dollars was fixed. In that case, if the US money supply is expanded, oil would fail to rise proportionately with other goods priced in dollars, causing the relative price of oil to fall. More oil would be imported into the US, dollars would flow outwards (into foreign reserves), and American prices would rise less than otherwise would have. (This is why fixed exchange rate systems cause inflation or deflation to be transferred between countries.)

As to the question of whether the petrodollar raises global demand for US dollars, why this is important baffles me. After all, dollars are merely paper, the real value of American products hasn’t changed. If the Canadians decided they would adopt the US dollar as their currency, the result would be deflation as there would be the same quantity of US dollars spread across a greater amount of production. Sure, the dollar would be more valuable, but that rise in the value of the dollar would be exactly offset by a fall in the nominal incomes of Americans.

Really tempted to make an RPG with Bastiat and de Molinari stalking the earth to hunt down a nefarious and escaped Napoleon III. But while de Molinari would have been 51 in 1870 (when Napoleon was overthrown), Bastiat would have been 69, and honestly I don’t think he would have lived longer even if he hadn’t succumbed to tuberculosis. So some date fiddling may be necessary. Or I could begin tragically. Will have to consider it—I also want to do some fiddly steampunky math things with Babbage and Ada Lovelace (goodness do I love me some 2D Goggles…whenever it updates).

just pretend bastiat is old snake or something

I hope there are some candle-based stealth mechanics in that case though

Me dropping off my friend Eli at the airport so he can begin his scouting mission to investigate terrorism in Gaza. Follow @IcyPlayboi69 on Twitter for his updates. We believe Hamas is holding Tupac hostage, he is alive in Palestine and we seek to rescue him. This is 100% real and 200% dangerous.

rough translation: The Englishman Arkwright wanted to make a spinning-frame. It took him such a long time that he became very poor and so his wife got mad and broke his machine. Angry at her, he sent her away. But even after all this, he succeeded and became extremely rich.

2014 Edition of the GPA Redistribution Experiment.

I wouldn’t encourage the liberals to think like this.  It won’t be long before some students start supporting equality in test and grades.

Hillsdale’s my love.

I would not mind redistributing GPAs

assassination doesn't necessarily mean attacking him first, just yell at him and call him a jerk and keep challenging him to a fight until he tries to punch you, then you strike and it'll be legitimate. duh.

But he’s Krugtron the Invincible. I can’t beat him in 1v1 combat.

He definitely requries a 25 man raid to beat.  2 New Classical tanks, 3 RBC Raid Healers, 2 Monetarist Tank Healers, and 6 Ranged Austrian DPS (3 Hayekian physical, 3 Misesian magical) and 11 Melee Market Monetarists (3 Nike Rowe plate DPS, 4 Scott Sumner leather DPS and 4 David Beckworth chain DPS).
