How many good days did the “Good Day” researcher have while he researched which was Ice Cube’s good day?
6 Mind-Blowing Pop Culture Questions Answered by Super Fans
Back before Ice Cube was a fun-loving family-movie star, he was a fun-loving gangsta rapper. One of his hit songs was “It Was a Good Day,” which featured him waking up and listing off all the things that made the day so great, like intercoursing a lady friend and not being kicked in the face by any cops.
While most fans assumed that Ice Cube just made up the “good day,” this wasn’t good enough for Tumblr user Donovan Strain. Strain analyzed the song’s lyrics and broke down the clues that could help determine the exact date Cube was talking about, like a rap fan version of Tom Hanks’ character in The Da Vinci Code.
WHY AM I THANKED IN SKULLGIRLS?
Skullgirls is a video game. A fighting game. An indie game. It came out last year and they are currently working on new DLC. It has a cult following.
Reason 1: Two of the lead artists on Skullgirls worked on the Scott Pilgrim game.
Reason 2: The main character designer of Skullgirls, Alex Ahad, is someone I’ve known (IRL) for over ten years. I had him do a pinup (of Matthew Patel and the demon girls) in the back of Scott Pilgrim volume 3 in 2006.
Reason 3: There was a hilarious time when the game was announced and the gaming blogs played a game of telephone where Alex was credited with a pinup in Scott Pilgrim and that changed to “worked on Scott Pilgrim” and then eventually became “creator of Scott Pilgrim”. He was embarrassed but it wasn’t his fault. I wasn’t mad. We all thought it was just kinda funny.
Reason 4: I support Skullgirls! These people are my friends!! Friends thank friends in their credits!!!!
I don’t agree on everything, but some of it seems accurate.
An advice for artists who don’t understand tags
If you are an artist ob tumblr, please don’t use relative tags like “my art”. After a reblog your dumb tag makes it the art of whoever reblogged you. You’re writing your name (or watermark) on your creations? So why don’t you use your name or a variation of it (like YOURNAMEart) as your tag?
It would make much more sense, wouldn’t it?
It’s come to the point where many just assume all users they come across are female unless explicitly stated otherwise.
