Better Than Dirt: James and the Giant Peach’s Earthworm

I watched James and the Giant Peach again recently. I never actually got to see it when it came out. I vaguely remember that my mother, for some reason, did not like it. I think maybe she just found Tim Burton's stop-motion shit weird in general because I remember having wanted to see The Nightmare Before Christmas too and we never did. So instead, I had a phase a few years after high school where I "caught up" on some of the Disney movies I missed out on and this was one of my favorites.

What I have been thinking about mostly since having rewatched it is how they translated the insects into their more "human" forms and then animated them to reflect both sides of that. Some of them, Grasshopper and Centipede, were made more humanoid with insect characteristics like their multiple arms and antennas. Others strike sort of a middle ground where they have rather unavoidable insect characteristics that need to be accounted for. Ladybug's large round body and Glowworms's bioluminescent tail specifically. Then there's Earthworm and Spider, who could only really just be made as larger versions of their actual species.

 Channing sent me a wedding gift. Now I have to PICK which fur to wear on fancy occasions.  Reupholstered Simon's office chair. It was in a sad state, sheddin' bonded leather debris everywhere. Now it's a nice gray faux suede.
 Rogue is too big for the windowsill.  The Arch was designed by Eero Saarinen, the same guy who designed the Tulip chair and table.

    Taipei 101 is THE MOST EVIL building on the planet

    Look at this fucking Judge Dredd-level shit, god damn.

    This is where the final boss is

    it has a gigantic counterweight towards the top to reduce swaying, which is kind of necessary for any very tall building, but its out in public view and painted gold and you can see it like, swinging around

    #this whips ass youre all just weak

    Is it brilliant architecture? Yes. Is it glaringly obvious that this is a supervillain aesthetic? Also yes.
