This makes me very happy to hear! Thank you very much, and thank you for checking out the above mentioned cartoons!
My biggest goal with this blog is to discuss shows, games, movies, and other pieces of media I find interesting and hopefully recommend like-minded viewers to them. It’s the goal of a determined fan! This is particularly important when it comes to shows like Tron Uprising which really needs a larger fanbase. As you might imagine, this is another major goal of mine when it comes to making music videos.
I’m glad to know that my efforts are working, and that you’re enjoying some quality cartoons. Thank you for the lovely compliment and keep up the good work yourself.
I haven’t really given it much thought. Given the settings of both shows, I’d probably do something like the Cybertronians and human buddies had been in Avatar world the whole time. That way, we’d get to see cool steampunk versions of all our favorite robots. And we’d get to see Miko in cute Fire Nation clothes or something. It’s all about new outfits, man…
But again, I haven’t given this type of crossover much thought, so I really can’t help you out here.
The show I often think about doing crossovers with TFP is…
You need to watch this show. I don’t understand why it’s not a huge deal on here . You will get an animation/design/art boner from the whole damn series. The movement and choreography of the fights is top-notch and riveting.
Our protagonist, Beck, is a vigilante renegade who tries to spark…

“Lance Henriksen in the form of General Tessler…”
C’mon tumblr, I know you like The Lieutenant…
Wouldn’t you like to see him actually win at something?
See? He’s happy.
“Lin, with so much on the line… It’d be nice if we could help each other out, at least for one night…”
“Like old times?”
“Like old times.”
Let’s analyze this exchange a little here. It’s one of the few occasions in The Legend of Korra that anyone directly calls Lin Bei Fong on her aggressive behaviour, and yet it has a surprisingly progressive outcome. Indeed, Lin does become much more reasonable and productive with Tenzin, strikes up a good working relationship with the Avatar, and is able to eventually fight for the protection of Pema/Tenzin’s children. For such a brief conversation, it has some pretty powerful effects.
And then, I got to thinking… Has Tenzin never tried this approach before with Lin? Did he just spend all this time between the dissolving of their romance some odd years ago and this point letting their relationship remain rocky and poor? He’s one of the council members of Republic City, but the chief of police acts as though she’d like to bury him 6 feet under, and generally makes life difficult for his family. Yet, all he has to do is show a little openness, backbone, and humility, and she’s willing to bury the hatchet and move on? Well, why didn’t he do so sooner?
I don’t think this is accidental. Tenzin may be cool, have a sky bison, and be voiced by JK Simmons, but he has his flaws just like any other human being. And Tenzin is just not very good at dealing with life’s obstacles.
So let’s discuss, shall we?
See, I’d always put Lin’s crankiness at him down to “earthbenders are stubborn” (although the way Tenzin minced around matters didn’t exactly help).
The idea that he might have been a wimp about the breakup—pulling a Mako, as it were—never really occurred to me; he always came off as more honorable than that. I’d always thought it had simply been acrimonious.
I don’t think he would’ve pulled a Mako. I don’t know how the breakup happened, but I’m assuming there was some sort of discussion. Likely one that made Tenzin extremely uncomfortable, hence his reluctance to really face Lin since then. The above analysis is really solid, imo. I think it makes sense.
I just want to note that I agree with both of you. I do not genuinely think Tenzin did to Lin the sort of stunts Mako pulled. There was probably some level of discussion, but as you both said, it probably did not go well due to Tenzin’s difficulty in facing things head-on and Lin’s own powerful personality. This most likely uncomfortable and unproductive falling out then leading to their present day difficulties.
whoa whoa mako i understand, but wally seriously how is he an ass?
Wally is a jerk because of the same reasons as Mako, to be honest. Wally also disrespects women, has control issues, and doesn’t properly apologize for his behavior.
Long version (seriously. it’s long. ~1700 words.):
I can’t really speak to the Mako points, but I want to reblog this for the commentary on Young Justice’s Wally West. Because it encapsulates nearly ever problem I had with the character while burning through the show’s first season and what has been released of S2 thus far over the past few weeks.
It’s particularly awful when you compare how Super Boy/Miss Martian’s courtship started and ended versus Wally/Artemis’. See, for all the problems both characters had, I felt Conner and M’gann had a fairly decent, growing relationship.
They expressed mutual attraction early in the series, and got together promptly. They had shared interests and supported each other. They had their differences and quarrels, but they also learned from their mistakes. They knew when to give the other space or alone time. Both had to learn to respect one another as teammates, as individuals, and as romantic partners. They learned how to trust one another with some of the very heavy issues they were dealing with. They worked hard on their relationship, both were active participants, and the relationship seemed to be beneficial to both of them.
Yet, by season two, this relationship is the one that has ended. Meanwhile, Wally and Artemis are a thriving, sex-having, couple.
The only thing I’d add is that it bugged me that Wally lacked a strong goal to pursue and a personal tragedy to overcome as the other central heroes had. Wally lives in a big, comfortable house with two great parents, and an extended loving family, all of whom dote on him. He has a good relationship with the adult Flash, and can live as an ordinary human easily… Yet I, as the viewer, am expected to see him as a character with the same narrative weight and sympathy as tragic, in-human characters like Super Boy, Aqua Lad, Red Tornado, and Miss Martian.
You did it… you made the bestest, most greatest girl in the history of ever.
Now go and rest, our brave hero.
With my recent Green Lantern video project completed/uploaded and Fall of Cybertron beaten, I now (in theory) have a few days before school starts to churn out a few over indulgent mini-essays on my beloved cartoons. Things like… Legend of Korra’s Tenzin and his subtle personality problems, TFA Arcee, Transformers Prime’s interesting direction with the Decepticons, Tron: Uprising in general…
But all I can think about is Space Jam…
I used to be really afraid of the moon, because of—y’know—what Dad’s made us do and all.
But then Noatak told me something that made me feel alot better! He said…
It wasn’t so scary after that! So yeah, it’d be fun to visit.
tarrlok face appreciation

These photos and the commentary are great! Of course… as I look at these screens, I can only think…
See, I’m just like you daddy…
I’ve noted before that what I like about the character of Korra is her ability to let go of personal grudges, make friends with people who initially antagonised her, and help them out. Related to this is her interesting desire to not only foster good future relationships, but to literally bring people close to her physically by having them live with her. What’s more, when she brings people into her home, they tend to exhibit greater personal growth and depth than they did living independently.
Korra, it seems, just wants to live with everyone….
…To become Tarrnoamon! With the power of 2+ ice breath, flight, psychic abilities and shit!
Its Avatar-world, anything’s possible.
Your adventures in fraternal bliss begin now!
And that’s how the finale will go.
