“The character design of Flynn came from the process which was called the “hot man meeting” by Nathan Greno and Byron Howard, during which they set up a meeting with all of the female employees of the studio in one room and asked them for their opinions of what made a man good looking in order to create Flynn’s character design with features such as eye color, hair color and style and body type. Video footage showed concept art and photos of various male celebrities, including Johnny Depp, Hugh Jackman, Brad Pitt, David Beckham and Gene Kelly on the walls of the room. Director Byron Howard said they wanted to make Flynn “the most handsome, most attractive male lead Disney has ever had.”
"The hot man meeting" is now my second favorite animation design story, after the one about how Pixar animators working on the Dug team for Up had “fat dog day” where they basically went to a shelter and were like “please bring out your fattest dogs,” and then they hung out with the fattest jolliest available dogs, all day.
man would i love to be a pixar animator
Don’t forget Brave’s Kilt Fridays where all the animators wore kilts to work every friday during production.
This is why I want to work for these fun guys
The 16 Types
I just realized it would probably make sense to consolidate all of these into one post.
In this post, I am going to attempt to assign Sherlock a Myers-Briggs type by attempting to deduce his preferred Jungian functions.
Sherlock, being the epitome of the ultra-rationalist if there ever was one, is definitely a person dominated by thinking. It also seems quite clear to me that he’s dominated by introverted-thinking, rather than extraverted. A person operating with extraverted-thinking attempts to arrange his external world in a logical, systematic manner. He also acts and expresses himself in a way that is seen as rational by others. Sherlock’s external world though, is extremely disorganized to the outside observer. His flat is a mess, and he often acts in ways that seem impulsive and erratic, as opposed to calculated, to those around him. When he externalizes his thinking, it’s often sporadic and jumps from point to point with no apparent connections (except to himself). When he does verbalize his deductions, they sound more like direct externalization of a stream of internal thoughts, as if he’s externalizing what is usually an internal process (as his brilliant actor, Benedict Cumberbatch, points out in this interview starting around 15:45.)
"Oh, this could be very nice…as soon as we get all this rubbish cleaned up."
Good luck, John.
Moreover, though Sherlock likes to “talk” to John when he’s on his cases (which I think is more an expression of his auxiliary function rather than his dominant one, which I will discuss more of later), when he actually has to do some serious thinking, he can’t stand to have any external distractions. This is because he needs to go “into” himself to think, so any stimuli which brings him “out” into the external world interrupts his thinking, all of which further suggests that his thinking is introverted rather than extraverted.

THAT FUCKING GIF
i never understand why non-white characters can’t just be described as fucking brown
they gotta be caramel, mocha, dark chocolatey, cocoa, whatever nonsense
can we start describing white characters with food terms too? “her milk-white arms.” “his light mayonaisse face.” “her hair was the color of dijon mustard.” yeah. sounds about right.
how to stay warm in your freezing bedroom:
put on a comfy sweater
put a sweatshirt on over it
put leggings on
put sweatpants on over them
4 pairs of fuzzy socks
light your bed on fire
and a partridge in a pear tree
do you ever turn off your music to watch a quick video and then forget to turn your music back on and then like half an hour later you suddenly realize it’s really quiet??
I like to dress nice for finals so I can look like I know what I’m doing and intimidate the other students
Half of me wants to be really cool and wear black skinny jeans and combat boots all the time with snakebites and blue hair and thick eyeliner and play electric guitar and not give a fuck but the other half of me wants to wear knitted jumpers and pretty dresses and curl my hair and listen to acoustic music and be pretty and cuddly and drink cups of tea anduuuuuuuugh
I feel you
