Black Carnival 10 final 1280

Black Carnival #10

Gillian, Flynt, and Marraine team up to take down the Abomination. But will their combined efforts be enough?

With every page, I’m getting more and more confident as I experiment with what works best and looks cool.  I change styles often within this page, but I’m really happy with the results.  I plan on working on one non Black Carnival drawing before I get into #11. I’m really excited about this one as it’s VERY overdue.

Let’s just say things are gonna get Bloody.

Wow!

Bet you didn’t see that coming did you?  Gillian and Flynt are back again to wrap up the “cat-in-the-tree” storyline.

Why the revival?

I once read a quote regarding about going to your grave with your unrealized ideas and aspirations are a waste of human ingenuity.  Originally, I had given up on delivering my story for The Black Carnival in favor of other endeavors.  It was a notion I truly hated myself for deciding.  After 5 months, I’ve returned to take another attempt at delivering my story.  No point in wasting human ingenuity right?

The Black Carnival will continue to serve as a means of experimentation with style and feasibility.  I get faster and more efficient with each drawing.  There can be only good things that come from this.

Black Carnivals will be released with no schedule.  I’ll try to crank them out when I can, but I’ll be mixing in other pieces of work between each page.

Deputy Gillian Akers meets Sheriff Meiter’s new secretary to discover a dark secret.

Black Carnival Overview Summary:

My name is Gillian Akers You see, 3 years ago most of my family was massacred in an attempt to seize the family’s prized possession, ownership of The Black Carnival.   I was one of the few survivors and the heavens literally sent help from above to keep me safe from those who want to take my right to one day own it.  The Black Carnival is a controlled ‘haven’ for all things dangerous, discarded, and devious.  Ownership provides you access to some of the most powerful and dangerous people and beings around.  But my whole life I never really cared about that, at least until my family paid the price for it.  To help me survive, my Uncle Flynt has trained me as a part of his protection initiative.  I intend to use my newfound skills to return to the Black Carnival to find the people who murdered my family.  My uncle and I now work as a part of the Black Carnival Sheriff’s Office, occasionally taking out the Carnival’s trash and simultaneously investigating those who tried to take everything away from me.  I will work day and night to find them and return the favor.

I’ve got plenty of panels already written, so it’s up to me to get off my lazy butt and draw them.  I’m really excited about the new direction and am very satisfied with the quality.  Satisfied.  Maybe satisfaction isn’t enough…Which means I can probably step up my game ;D.

It’s been a while, but I talked about several Chinese movies any film lover should see.  Someone who had the honor of holding two films on that list was director and actor Stephen Chow.  Gifted in slapstick, over the top, silly dialogue and action, Chow has cemented himself as a current leader in both quality comedy and a Chinese celebrity.  His most recent movie, released in 2013 in China, Journey to the West: Conquering the Demons is the highest grossest Chinese language movie ever.  So I got my hands on the movie and had to see it myself, not really sure how I would feel about it after loving Kung Fu Hustle and Shaolin Soccer so much.  Here’s a quick summary of the premise.

Xuan Zang (Zhang Wen) is an unorthodox demon hunter.  Instead of pummeling them into submission, he uses a pacifist approach through nursery rhymes to appeal to their inner good.  But when he gets in over his head, the aggressive demon hunter Miss Duan (Qi Shu) is forced to save his life over and over again.  Together they foil each other out as they journey to the west, conquering demons (get it?).  Along the way, slapstick, seduction, and heartbreak occur on the road as they learn more about each other then either of them really wanted.

If there’s anything Weekend Funnies have taught me, is that not everyone has the same sense of humor.  But the internet is a generally a collection of everyone and the sheer compilation of the wit and humor that each individual contributes essentially represents the most broadest and generalist appeals to mankind.  So when I choose the 24 images for each Weekend Funny, I know the reason I think it’s funny will be at least funny to some percentage of the world.  And even if the it’s the smallest 1%, 1% of 7 billion is still 700 million.  So I apologize if you’re offended, disgusted, or upset.  Truth be told, if you can’t handle these 24 images, you likely shouldn’t be on the internet anyways.  So stop worrying about racism, sexism, and other means of being upset.  Just keep scrolling, and remember: no one’s looking, it’s okay to smile at something someone would frown upon.

HBO

Banana Scoop has had its break and it’s been absolutely wonderful.  Our writers were given a break and prepared some really great articles with our newfound reinvigoration.  There’s a lot of neat stuff we’ve planned and want to feature in the coming weeks, like a greater About Us section, a DMCA statement, and then some other things we’ve put on the back burner for a while.  The Scoops gonna come back harder than ever.  Buckle in and prep yourselves.

About Us is Also Live

The long awaited About Us Page is up that features a mini biography about each of our authors.  Be sure to visit that page to contact us and get to know us more.  It would be really neat to further expand this section to include a history section about the what this site franchise has been through [it’s not THAT exciting, but I’ll add a few ninjas and damsels and distress to spice things up.]

Weekend Funnies on a Friday?  It can’t be!?  To wrap up the last post before our weeklong break, I’ve decided to switch the final announcement to be moved to tomorrow and Saturday’s planned Weekend Funnies to be moved to today.  Enjoy your humor!

From Cracked:

Aside from some jogging scenes in “Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out,” the training montage never really made the transition from movies to video games. We asked you to show us what we’re missing out on, and why in some cases, that’s probably a good thing.

From Cracked:

Public Service Announcements are still somehow the best we’ve got for teaching people how not to harm themselves, or at least for educating normal people how dumb people are harming themselves. We asked you to show us what they’d look like inside video games where the world is often actively trying to kill us

Scheduled Break and Return

Banana Scoop is still scheduled to take a break in the week from September 16th to September 22nd to give us writers a break from school and other things.  In the meantime, our writers will be doing serious business to make Banana Scoop even better…or we’ll likely be playing Borderlands 2.  All four of us are into Borderlands, so it’s very likely that’s what we’ll be doing on our break.  Speaking of our fourth author…

New Author’s First Post this Week!

Earlier, I posted Rachel as a new author as well as her new avatar.  She’s posting her first article this week, so please visit and support her!  I’m not going to give the topic of her first article away, but it’s totally in league with what this site usually posts, so I guarantee you’ll enjoy it.  Rachel will be posting several times a month with no regimented scheudle unlike the other authors.  She’s going to try out what it’s like to publish for us and hopefully we’ll see her more frequently!

What I’m Doing This Week


art by dadonfuga

  • Reading: Mockingjay, Jurassic Park
  • Drawing: Edward Scissorhands, Harley Quinn, Random Page Button
  • Watching: Mad Men, Party Down, Cabin in the Woods

New Buttons

If you haven’t already noticed, we’ve changed the topic buttons as well as Favorite Scoops buttons.  The new topic buttons will reflect some of the things we’ll be reviewing and covering in the future: Borderlands 2, American Horror Story, Dexter, etc.  As always Fig Art subcategory will bring you to my Deviant Art page.

Page Changes and About Us

We’ll be changing up the Pages on the very top soon.  Universidaze and Weekly Calendar’s and maybe even Live Discussion Pages will be going down in favor of some more productive Pages like About Us.  I’m working on finalizing that so people can find out about Banana Scoop and its writers.

Weekly Preview

  • Minecraft Tips and Tricks
  • Mockingjay Review [Hopefully]
  • Similarities Between Brick and Romney
  • Louis CK Stand Up

[On Zach Galifianakis on tumblr]…I felt compelled to compile the definitive collection in one convenient place. Some make for great reaction GIFs, others serve to revisit good times, and all are just good internet….Until we know for sure, please allow this collection of chubby, bearded splendidness to make your day.

This image isn’t even that cool.  Pysch!!!  This is really cool.  But totally geeky.  It just really tickled my fancy because I’ve been crushing a lot of Minecraft lately.  With Aragorn screaming some classic Lord of the Rings lines, Legolas sees the dreaded Creepers, but instead of telling him they’re headed to Isengard, he does on the truly sensical thing: builds a wall of cobblestone.  Brilliant Legolas, but I also think that bow would’ve worked just as well.  Here’s to hoping it’s enchanted.

From Uproxx:

I’m not a big video series guy. Too much commitment. The only one I’ve ever anxiously anticipated is Between Two Ferns with Zach Galifianakis (co-created by our good buddy Scott Aukerman!). It is the funniest web series that ever series’d and Funny or Die’s greatest contribution to the internet. These are indisputable facts.

I’ve had Minecraft for a couple of months now and I’m continually finding new things to keep me interesting from the rather simple game.  There are still a number of things I still need to investigate and haven’t seen: The Nether, The End and an even larger number of things I haven’t crafted, pistons, enchanting tables, and potions.  So there are definitely a number of things I still need to do, despite playing hours upon hours of mining, digging, and cutting.  But of course, there are a number of experiences I want to share with you guys.  Here are 4 heart thumping moments I’ve had with my time with Minecraft.

Go get Minecraft here!

100 Cheesy Movie Quotes

Sometimes movies truly are just extremely cheesy.  And while they might want to seem deep and profound, it can often be a large amount of cheese.  This video 10 minutes of cheesy quotes.  And especially since these are taken out of context, it can certainly be an eye-roller to hear some of these quotes. What’s really neat is to go through all of them [if you have the time] and if there are any you don’t know, the creator was kind enough to leave the names of all the movies.

Another Banana Scoop week with some minor changes here and there.  A new month here and I wish I had more upcoming changes.  There are a couple of major things I’m trying to keep under wraps, but of course, I wanna keep them as surprises.

Scheduled Break September 16th – 22nd

Banana Scoop will have a scheduled break to allow our writers to catch up and relax.  It is regrettable for this to happen, but I feel as though our writers deserve a break for providing such amazing content to our fan base.  There is only strict coincidence that this is the same week that Borderlands 2 comes out…By no means will I be only playing Borderlands 2 and not writing articles to play catch up…that would be unethical XD.
