On the 18th of December people who post things with nudity on Tumblr will be kicked off the site. That means all the adult bloggers, comicers and things that made that journalling site stand out above the rest of the vast sea of blog sites and image hosts are being screwed out of what they helped build up! The reason of course is to make the site more attractive to advertisers and so it can more easily fit the standards of puritanical companies like Apple and Google who have taken it upon themselves to scrub the world clean of anything that defines us as adult human beings.
Topics and Show Notes
Inspired by my newspost on Saturday (link bellow) this Quackcast has a look at the anti-nudity, anti-adult craze and the reasons for it, as well as censorship in general. We also strongly encourage any refugee adult webcomicers from Tumblr to make The duck Webcomics your new home and please tell anyone you know that we are there for them! Unlike Pornhub we are actually a proper webcomic host and unlike other comic sites we do not quibble about your content. As long as it's legal, it's a comic, you have permission to post it, and you rate it correctly, go to town!
This week Gunwallace has given us the theme to Terminal Velocity: The music builds a high altitude atmosphere… Floating through the sky free of gravity, clouds float by as weightless and unencumbered as you but infinitely more massive. All is stillness apart from your heartbeat and the wind whistling past, which builds up pressure as you feel the suction of gravity towards the earth far below and the world seems to speed up as you see the ground rush towards you. Then you fall into the cold grey heart of cloud and all is stillness again for a moment, leaving you alone with the sound of your pulse.

FLASHbacks… you have to do them right or they will screw up the flow of your story. That's the theme of the newspost by Tantz Aerine that we stole this podcast topic from. :) Flashbacks can be expository, they can explain story elements and plot to you, they can push the narrative forward in a (seemingly) non-linear way, they can do all sorts of things, but one of the very worst is when they ruin the flow of your story and irritate your audience! That's what we're chatting about today, the poorly handled flashback and how to avoid it! Now let me tell you about that time… JUST KIDDING! Our music theme by Gunwallace this week was Galactic Nebula Race. This is all about speed! Racing, acceleration, hyper-velocity!! Watch those lights fly past faster and faster until they become just a single coloured blurred line… only to see your rival speed past as if you were standing still.
