metaxzero said: Can you not fill the Teen Titans Go tag with your extreme doomsaying of the American animation industry and general hatred of the show please? Anyway, Japan's animation industry doesn't just thrive off of them taking animation a bit more seriously. It also lives off of paying their workers below minimum wage and overcharging related merchandise to consumers. That model doesn't fly in the west. And there is concern Japan's animation bubble may burst at some point
Look I made a post about a topic on my blog in which someone chose to make a comment about. I then responded to the comment. As the topic pertains to Teen Titans Go. I tagged it with Teen Titans Go as well as other tags that are reflected in what I had to say. I am entitled to my opinion just as you are yours. So because you are possibly a fan of the show, and don’t necessarily share my opinion’s on the state of the American animation industry (and television in general) I should not be allowed to voice or share them? I am simply exercising my right to freedom of the press (or expressing my opinion about a topic on my personal blog). I will tag my post with whatever I see fit as it pertains to the content of my post. You metaxzero, do not have to read what I post as is your right. On the B side you do not have the right to stop, or to dictate what I post. If I so choose I will flood the Teen Titans Go tag with all my opinions I see fit, as is might right. However as I A) do not troll message boards or threads and B) I do not wish to have pointless, fruitless arguments with a person/persons who I will never meet, and is only a screen name to me. I have no desire to argue in circles with a faceless man. As my initial intentions were to just vent for a moment about something I find personally disappointing. I shall consider you metaxzero as someone who tries to bait others. Your comment on my thoughts is an attempt to bait me into a debate. One that you hope will play out over tumblr so that you can inform me about how wrong I am about Teen Titans Go. In which if it plays out in your favor more fans of the show join in. So that the masses can light there torches and chase me back in to the tallest tower in my castle. Where inside I am one and surrounding me are many. To which you can make the statement about if the show is so bad why does it have so many fans. I’m then supposed to cower in the shadows licking my wounds. Then you will have this this sense of pride and community with fellow fans feeling as if you have won something. Although in the end we will still disagree. So let’s leave it at this, a lesson for you, agree to disagree. I will post what I want, when I feel I want to post it. I will also post my thoughts with whatever tags I feel pertain to my post. If you come across any of my future posts you are welcome to read them or not. If the post includes opinions or content you dislike or find distasteful just stop reading it. No one is forcing you to read my opinions or to adopt them as your own. So I should think we are done now. As I’m sure you should have plenty of clarity by the time you have reached the end of this post. I don’t care about or have any use for your opinions. However what I do care about for myself and you is that we have the right to have those opinions and share them.
crazyhamlet said: Actually, TTG was renewed for a second season after only a few weeks due to the overwhelmingly positive reaction. You're allowed to not like it, but it's definitely doing well. :>
Yeah and that is exactly the kind of thing I’m talking about. We can get 10 seasons from a stupid talking Sponge (awful show). And a show like Teen Titans Go gets renewed (pitiful). You see whats happening with animation is the same thing reality TV has done to live action television shows. Low budget stupid shows like American Idol, Dancing With the Stars, and Fear Factor and all the other garbage shows. Reel in the population with out brains. Because these shows are cheaper to make then say a show like Firefly, Firefly and other great shows have been lost and will be lost while people continue to get pulled in by shit that looks like it was made by a class of 5th graders. The same thing is happening to great animated shows like Young Justice or Tron Uprising. Excellent shows with quality animation, great voice acting, and great storytelling will be lost and replaced with cheap low quality shows like Teen Titans Go. One day when all American animation ends up like Teen Titans Go, Aqua Teen Hunger Force and other like them. Well be flipping channels looking for all the great shows we lost. So one day when we loose all the really well made and stylized shows. Like Young Justice, Tron Uprising, and they decided its not worth it to make shows like Star Wars the Clone Wars, and Disneys upcoming Star Wars Rebels any more because the cost of production. I mean why make quality sophisticated shows like the ones listed previous when you can save a lot of money because such a large chunk of your audience is lacking any sophistication themselves. Most American viewers have no appreciation for quality animation and storytelling. Look at some of the incredible anime out of Japan they continue to get great animated shows. Why? Because they appreciate great storytelling first and foremost, and they also appreciate excellent animation. The US will never have that level and high quality animated shows because Americans will continue to tune it to shows like Teen Titans Go with switched of brains drooling at their television screens laughing and swing there are arms about, slapping their own faces, and beating their arms against their chests like mindless apes. While for some this may be just fine sitting in front of the TV flinging their own feces around. My time is more valuable to me and if I’m going to watch a television program I’m sorry if I ask for something more sophisticated and of a higher quality then Teen Titans Go.
