Hawkeye

Marvel’s Hawkeye dropped the first two episodes. It follows the life of Kate Bishop, a newer, younger archer hoping to take the mantle of the, now retired, Hawkeye.

The visual design is pulled most lovingly from the excellent Hawkeye series that features some of the same storyline (modified to fit for the MCU modifications).

Some of the art, in question

This homage to Matt Fraction and David Aja’s work on the series is a really nice tie-back to the original material that doesn’t feel like a rip off (cough, Cowboy Bebop live). It feels like how you should honor those who blazed trails before you. Take from their work and build on it, tell their story, but in your own way.

I’m really glad to see they’re driving the artistic direction with this in mind, it feels like there is reverence and respect, instead of trying to lift content wholesale.

The Book of Bobba Fett

Very interesting. Seeing Bobba pick up where Jabba left off.

Make a Pillow Fort for Your Podcasts

Don Gonyea with the Student Podcast Challenge have distributed some excellent tips on how to make your podcasts sound great, even if you don’t have an expensive sound-proof studio. These tips are great advice for those of us who are terrible at being audio engineers. While I may not be recording podcasts, I love reading tips on how to do things without spending a fortune.

These tips come from correspondents and audio engineers who are often not in a studio, or a place that can accommodate favorable recording conditions. Obviously good equipment helps with this, but making the environment more favorable can make mediocre equipment work better and give you surprising results.

Any other tips for recording audio?
