Well this was way more informative than I expected, and way more positive regarding Tumblr as a whole, too. Being confined to NG I only hear bad things about that place. I did join up but never really grew into the community (is there a real sense of community there?), and have since only heard the negative effects of this so-called libertarian social justice society. Geared at innocents. Brought up for the most trivial issues. Justice transformed to vengeance, towards anyone who stands outside the Tumblr clique.

So this was a refreshing new perspective, and interesting trip into modern Greek mythology, too. You live and learn. Wonder if that first poster ever realized his post could have such consequence...

You know, this actually brings up some really interesting arguments and points. I was completely unaware of Mesperyian until now, and the way you describe it, it really does seem like this matches up with the spirit of Tumblr. I have to say, this is some intriguing stuff right here.
Also, I'm dig the new assets displayed here. Nice to see a change of scenery. There was some awkward stuttering in the animation every now and then, just thought I might point that out.
All around great video fam.

Great! I really like your works man!

This was great. I like how you seamlessly transitioned through ideas, leading the viewer to stay engaged.

gods are created by man after all, its fine to believe in a new one
