  • When I look at other people's great artwork I often say to myself: I know how to break down that work into manageable chunks and I can probably do it but it would take an unimaginable amount of time for me. IDK if the better artists are faster or simply more persistent

    look…………….. write as much shitty fic as you want. nobody can stop you. you’re learning constantly and it’s better to write hackneyed implausible ridiculousness than it is to not write at all out of fear of fucking up. you’re good

    There was an experiment a professor did. I think it was pottery students. He did an experiment of “quality” vs “quantity”. One half of the class he told; you have to make as many pots as possible. Good pots, bad pots, shitty pots, whatever. The more pots you make, the higher your grade.

    The other half of the class were told, “you can make only one pot”. But that pot had to be perfect. The quality had to be high; the highest quality pot would get the best mark.

    But when it came to the grading, they noticed something weird.

    All the best quality pots were in the ‘quantity’ group.

    The guys who were literally churning out pots, trying to make as many as possible, not concentrating on the quality. But every pot they made, made them better at making pots. By the end of the month (I think it was a month) - they had some pretty awesome pots coming out, because they enjoying finding all the ways and all the things they could do to make all their pots. Where as the ‘quality’ guys had spent their time reading up on pots, and technique, and researching and planning; which was all great but they’d had no further practice at actually making pots.

    The best way to get really good at something, the only way to be really good at something, is to make lots of shitty attempts at that thing several of which will fail. If all you create are perfect things then you won’t improve, because how can you improve on perfect?

    tl:dr MAKE YOUR SHITTY POTS.

  • When I see pictures of inside other peoples' houses I kind of want to be able to enhance and see what they have on their bookshelves and maybe silently judge them.

    @visakanv you might enjoy season 2, episode 2 of The Toys That Made Us, a Netflix documentary series. That particular episode focuses on Transformers and in the early parts it explains their post-war origins

    In 11 months the Ethereum blockchain has 5x'd and one Parity developer warns $ETH nodes may soon have to run via a non-free, identity-collecting, centralized service named Infura.

    We warned you.

    In The Matrix they couldn't hide the camera in doorknob reflection, so the camera still shows but they tried to disguise it with a coat to match Morpheus tie.
