Here is a nice copy of the Fleischer Studio's "Popeye The Sailor Vs Sinbad The Sailor" featurette.

It contains several examples of one of their craziest processes: miniature sets built on a turntable, with a frame to hold cels between foreground and background elements, which let them do camera movements with a subtle dimensionality unmatched by any fully-2D process.

While I was animating on stream tonight, I hit an unusually good mental state.

Like normally I am trying to make it right, to animate the right thing. And then I was working on a section where I was on autopilot, which wasn't the right thing but didn't require focus.

But then I hit this....idk. I realized I could stop straining so hard and just enjoy my work. The point of "Oh, it's ok, I know how to do this" but not because of attaining some arbitrary level of knowing how, just I could enjoy working on it, for me.

I don't know what that was, but it was quite fun.

Wealth inequality is caused by an ever smaller group of people protecting their "right" to control and ever-larger share of our global resources.

It perpetuates itself by instilling a deep-seated fear that if we don't do the same with our own resources; then we will suffer.

The antidote to this fear is _mutualization_: banding together to create, capture and distribute resources in a mutually beneficial, enthusiastically consensual manner.

Final piece of the knob is printed. Just have to wire the encoder to the Flora board, and stick the translucent base to the gray top somehow, and it's good to go. Thinking rubber cement, and then I can also coat the bottom surface with it too for better traction.

I need to get a better silver for the replacement enclosure if I want it to look like the original. The "silver" PLA I used is basically just shiny dark gray, only looks close with a flash photo.
