The Ayeist Manifesto (Of Sorts)1. Poetry is observation.The Ayeist Manifesto (Of Sorts)1 day ago in Philosophical More Like This
1.1. Even narrative poems, in essence, are observation.
1.2. Therefore, imagery is key to poetry.
1.21. However, imagery does not necessarily make a poem (see 2.11.)
2. Prose is exploration.
2.1. Observation is still a key aspect within prose, yet it is secondary to exploration.
2.11. Conversely, exploration is still a key aspect within poetry, yet is is secondary to observation.
2.12. Therefore, line breaks do not make a poem.
3. You must be aware of the audience whilst writing a text.
3.1. For poetry, a poem must be good within its external aesthetic; you should be able to enjoy a poem at first reading.
3.11. Yet, a poem must have an internal aesthetic too; a poem should have substance.
3.12. A poem should make readers want to read it more than once.
4. Author Is Audience.
4.1. The preferred reading of a text and the differential decodings of a poem are equal in terms of legitimacy.

"PORCUPINE LOOKING PRICK!"
"ENOUGH YOU TWO!" Both you and Green Oak, A.K.A your rival since you both were in diapers stopped and looked up at Nurse Joy who looked anything but joyful at the moment.
You finally looked around at the small trickle of Pokemon trainers who took shelter from the raging storm outside just gawking at the both of you due to your current fight.
You turned your gaze to the counter to where to fluff balls of Pokemon were frowning at the both of you, a sigh escaping your plump lips.
"Sorry about that Joy." You heard Green reluctantly say knowing it probably hurt his ego.
"All I ask is, if a couple's going to fight to do it in they're room." Joy handed Green a key and stocked off to help other trainers.
"WE'RE NOT A COUPLE!" You both yell this out at the outlandish suggestion the pokenurse came up with. At this point you were just done and wanted nothing but a nice warm bed.

We all love ourselves some tokusatsu now,don't we? It's 1993 and the first thing that caught our eyes is the words: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rTFfkbvQ-xI
Yup,Power Rangers took not only America but every country on the planet by storm. IT was crazy,huuge and really nuts insane of a concept but it worked. Sure tokusatsu hitted on well in other countries that were not USA-based but it was completely noticed thanks to Power Rangers giving Sentai the push it needed and especially the toku medium in general. Like any other 90's comic book hero,the Power Rangers were extreme and some of the packaging and illustrations did gave the regularly-physique teenagers odd muscle structure thanks to our ol' friend,Rob Liefeld,at least they weren't given pouches which is possibly better not to have but instead gained an emblem on their chests...no clue why but to describe it,I say it's a liv

My Problems with Taking CriticismPeople say that I have trouble taking criticism. And enough people do that it definitely makes the argument at least worth looking into. So, what do I think? Do I personally think that I have trouble taking criticism? It's not a simple answer. You want a simple answer, it's both yes and no. I frequently think (not just say, actually think) that some of my critics are trolls. And I'm dismissive to a lot who don't come across as trolls. The thing is... these people are strangers, over the internet. People who I know, and trust, like the people who work on Growing Around with me, I can easily take criticism from them—but that doesn't always mean I agree with them. Here's the thing about me, I need to be able to trust someone before I can take criticism from them, or compliments for that matter. Or just opinions about me in general.My Problems with Taking Criticism9 hours ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This

Fantastic 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer, a review
So, during the time when superheroes ruled the movie theaters, Fox was impressed enough with the original Fantastic Four movie’s box office results (despite its less than stellar critical reception) to make a sequel. In some ways, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer promised to be more than the original movie. More locations, more fight scenes, more powers. When it came out, it didn’t exactly set the world on fire.
As Reed Richards and Sue Storm prepare for their wedding, a silver object enters Earth's atmosphere, creating 1 mile wide craters across the Earth. General Hager asks Reed to track and identify its movements. He initially refuses, to appease Sue, who feels he is again neglecting her for his work. However, he surreptitiously builds a radar tracker to locate the object, as the Army requests.
“Rise of the Silver Surfer” is more of the same movie, in both good and bad ways. There’s

You had argued with your older brother Dean but he made it clear you and Sam were to wait at the old house. Sam clearly was just as bummed out as you were as he spent most the time sulking and grumbling to himself. When you heard the familiar purr of the Impala's engines pull up outside the house you jumped to your feet eager to see what was going on. Crowley appeared in front of you and grabbed your hand before he teleported you to the side of a road in the middle of nowhere.
"Stay" He ordered before he disappeared again. You stood there jaw slack until you realized what just happened. Your eye twitched as you stared at the spot the demon once stood in.

If the TV Show, video game or Movie intent as a comedy, fanstarty, action, adventure had moments the main character turn into a crazy, insane mess of a character. Another example: A character become metal insane because she is alone, last example character all the time is shy, happy, kind character turn into mean, hateful, angry crazy, monster..

Shelob and Amy: The Victorious Arachnid It was a warm, July day. The sun glowing bright and basking down through the leaves of the trees. But still, Amy shivered. A lot of that probably had something to do with the soaking wet school uniform that was pasted onto the young woman's sensitive skin. But she had to admit that some of it probably came from the uncertainty of what was ahead of her. Not the path through the forest — she knew it'd lead where it always did.

PixelsVideo games have become almost the norm in popular culture. Everywhere one looks, chances are there is a video game being promoted. But the classic games of the past like Pac-Man and Donkey Kong will always be in gamer's hearts as the one they grew up with. Unfortunately, Hollywood has a reputation of turning popular video games into bad movies; movies about video games, on the other hand, have had a good reputation. The only downside to all of this is that now we have an Adam Sandler film that goes into the games of yesteryear. And it sucks. The movie “Pixels” is a strong definition of how to make a bad movie. Ridiculed with lame jokes, and mostly nostalgia, this movie just fails at everything it tried to accomplish. “Pixels” is a bad video game movie with a lot bugs attached to the project.Pixels1 day ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This

“To stop people from drifting away, to stop you from drifting away,” she answered.
“But where will I go?” I asked.
“I don’t know… maybe just away.”
“I’ll always be here if you need me.”
“Always, forever… they’re are all lies. I will disappear, or you will, everyone will in one way or another - unless we stop time.”
She then reached out her hand to catch a falling leaf, only to miss. It was as though she was trying to stop a grain of sand in an hourglass. Then the wind came, the leave
