In this delightful episode we sit down with webtoons artist, creative powerhouse, rhythm game champion, ray of sunshine and rainbows, Spiry! On the table for discussion is a movie that means a lot to Spiry, along with: smacktalking the state of the animation industry (with sympathy); Mixtape finds out a song that she thought her grandma invented was actually from a certain Broadway musical; why some animators are choosing to go it alone; the thirsts for dashing animated gentleman and the undeniable Tumblr sex appeal of the Onceler; the mermaid jewelry everyone is waiting for; where true love is really found (it's not with THAT guy); the secret about movies that feature water; a breakdown of the dub versus sub; whether there actually is any difference between dreams and reality; and MORE!
Take Spiry's What Kind of Demon Are You? Quiz! Mixtape took the quiz and got High Level-E Demon: "You’re a High Level-E Demon! Also known as HLE’s, they are only respected because they are the most feared in Undertown. But don’t worry, they’re really just sleeping giants; they’re too focused on enlightenment and magic to do much harm. HLE demons are immensely powerful but stay to themselves in villages on the outskirts of Undertown. They are all seeing, all caring, all loving beings, and they believe in the more occult things."
