what are your top ten songs you'd like to be able to put into regular show montages but will never get the chance
I can’t really answer that question, because every montage is different and requires a different song to really set the scene. Even songs I really love might not be appropriate for that specific episode. RS montages run the gamut from training scenes, cleaning, road trips, building or destroying something, searching for a person… finding the perfect song for each one is a challenge in itself and 90% of the time we don’t have the budget to purchase the rights to that song, so we score a piece of music that has the same “feel.”
With that said, tonight’s episode, “Skips’ Story,” has a song in it that I think fits the moment perfectly. I hope you’ll watch and see it in action!
Is it true that the episode of Regular Show called "The Longest Weekend" is a "Take That" against certain ways of living? P.S.: By the way, I can't believe that someone in the animation industry allow anonymous questions on Tumblr.
No, it’s just an episode. Why don’t you use your real name?
Here is the original storyboard Benton and I pitched for Monday’s episode. Usually we don’t have the time to render shading and detail, but since the underground scenes relied so heavily on lighting to set the mood, we went the extra mile. I’m pretty proud of this board - not much was changed from this to the final version!
Hey, Sarah. The scar on your hand makes a Shin - which is amazing. If you're not familiar, it's a very important letter in the Hebrew Alefbet. Standing alone, it is a sign for the name of HaShem (G-d of Israel). It's a blessing, I think. Like Isaiah 49:16. Beautiful. Be blessed, Sarah.
Oh, wow. Wow.
First, let me say how rare it is to receive a random message this positive. Thank you so much for sending this my way.
I doubt I would have found out about this symbol on my own, at least any time in the near future. After you wrote this, I looked up the letter and learned about its history and symbology. One of its literal meanings is “sharp,” which is fitting seeing as it was sliced into my hand. It has been used to represent a number of mythical weapons of the gods, including Poseidon’s trident and a compound bow. It’s also the origin of Mr. Spock’s Vulcan hand symbol, “live long and prosper!”
I don’t subscribe to a particular religion or believe in a specific supreme deity, but I respect the foundational teachings of all religions and think there’s a common core. Despite being atheist I’m very spiritual and live superstitiously, almost in a magical-reality. I believe human myths and beliefs themselves have power, and now that you’ve made this connection for me, I feel marked in a special way. This is what I meant when I said I prefer scars to tattoos due to their element of chance. I’ve relied on intuition for almost every major decision in life and I’ve let symbols and signs guide me, and so far they’ve led me to what I think is a very charmed place. I’m very grateful to you for bringing this connection to my awareness. I hope your acts of kindness are returned to you many times over.
(And for the curious, the Bible passage referenced above reads, “See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me.”)
