Adventure Time: The Art of Ooo - Concept art and storyboards from the best cartoon of the century so far

Adventure Time: The Art of Ooo
by Chris McDonnell
2014, 352 pages, 21 x 10 x 1 inches 
$25 Buy a copy on Amazon

"I am now addicted to Adventure Time; actually, I am in awe of it.” Director Guillermo del Toro expressed this opinion in his forward to this massive book of art from the cartoon series, and I agree with him.

I love everything about Adventure Time: the constrained-crazy character design, the candy-colored otherworldly sets, the untraditional-but-nevertheless-engrossing stories, and the bromantic relationship between Finn the Human and Jake the shape shifting dog, who embark on their Jodorowsky-esque adventures on a post-civilization Earth (all we really know is that our world ended as we knew it after the Great Mushroom War and the cartoon takes place about 1,000 years after).

This book is a deep dive into the Land of Ooo (the new name for Earth), with tons of concept sketches, marked-up scripts, and production art. It’s also an oral history of the development of the series, with interviews from the show’s creative team sprinkled throughout. – Mark Frauenfelder

Oh my god yes.

The National do this thing where their songs exude such pathos, but they still feel happy to me. I don’t understand, but they’ve become one of my favourite groups.

This is my official retirement plan: Home in the country; no people; fast internet; Lego in the basement/attic; border collies; goats and friendly wild crows.

“I said, specifically, ‘These two clowns are up to something,’ ” he testified. “’They’ve been taking videos and pictures down at the main checkpoint.’”

The three Boston witnesses were never publicly revealed, even though they were interviewed by the FBI and found to be credible. Their names didn’t even appear as footnotes in the 9/11 commission report.

A CNN study from 2010: White and black children biased toward lighter skin

Renowned child psychologist and University of Chicago professor Margaret Beale Spencer, a leading researcher in the field of child development, was hired as a consultant by CNN. She designed the pilot study and used a team of three psychologists to implement it: two testers to execute the study and a statistician to help analyze the results.

Her team tested 133 children from schools that met very specific economic and demographic requirements. In total, eight schools participated: four in the greater New York City area and four in Georgia.

[…]

Spencer was also surprised that children’s ideas about race, for the most part, don’t evolve as they get older. The study showed that children’s ideas about race change little from age 5 to age 10.

"The fact that there were no differences between younger children, who are very spontaneous because of where they are developmentally, versus older children, who are more thoughtful, given where they are in their thinking, I was a little surprised that we did not find differences."

Spencer said the study points to major trends but is not the definitive word on children and race. It does lead her to conclude that even in 2010, “we are still living in a society where dark things are devalued and white things are valued.”

The PlayStation controller seems to have become the symbol for #GamerGate. The #GamerGate dudes have even adopted it as their ‘official’ logo. Xbox must be happy not to be getting this particular free publicity.
