Skin by SimplySilent

EDIT:  That story IS in fact fake and if you navigate through the link I sent and get to the profile of the person who made it up you can see their blog is full of nothing but stupid Nick Cage memes so they are a blatant troll.

So today I came across a recent post on Tumblr...
*collective gasp*
yeah, so it was some post about a person at Babscon who was helping a vendor and there was a little girl who was being chased by a big creepy guy who was trying to get her to come with him to his hotel and at the end of the post the person telling the story got all whiny and started ranting about how horrible bronies are but the funny thing is that they said at one point that they know there are good people in the fandom but they still hate all bronies or something.  You can find a link to the post below if you wanna see it all in better detail but the post I'm talking about is the FIRST one, not the reblog post below it.  The original one was deleted so I could only link a reblog.

WARNING: LOTS OF SWEARING AND IMMATURE RANTING!  its-just-a-mod.tumblr.com/post…

------------

Now here is my reaction to this post.

Being on Tumblr for over a year and on the internet for over 5 years, I see a lot of things like this spread like wildfire and I have got to say this needs to stop.

Now I will say first and foremost, if a little girl is being stalked by a man like that at a brony convention, yes I believe with all my heart it is a major concern to me and I hope that that man is arrested and punished if he gets caught one day.  I hear stories about these kinds of people on the news all the time and just the thought of young children being harassed/molested/raped by disgusting individuals like that makes my skin crawl.

However, using stories like this as an excuse to hate on ALL bronies is completely wrong.  I agree with what its-just-a-mod said in the reblog below the original post.  I just wold like to ask a question to those of you brony haters out there who think that you are doing the world a favor by saying that we are ALL evil child-molesters and perverts: 

  • Would you hate on all black people just because there are many black gangsters and drug dealers in major cities?
  • Would you hate on all Muslims or people of middle-eastern decent just because of what happened on 9-11?
  • Would you hate on all Christians just because of what goes on at the Westboro Baptist Church?

If you consider yourself a sane and intelligent individual, you had better say no to all of those and tons more examples I don’t have the time or patience to list.

Now think to yourself:  does one or several individuals like that from a fandom like the brony fandom really have that big of an influence on the rest of us, especially when the majority of bronies are against that kind of behavior?  Would you hate on all bronies just because of one story of a creepy guy chasing a little girl around in a convention? (a story which still has yet to be proven and there are rumors it is actually fake)  If you judge this entire fanbase by just this one individual yet you said no to those other examples I gave, you are the complete definition of a hypocrite.

For one thing, I’ve been in the brony fandom for over 3 years now and have witnessed a lot of decent and professional behavior and can say with confidence that we are a good fandom and we spread a lot of positivity.  Now, of course I have experienced rude and vile behavior from some members of this fandom but you know what guys?  If I went into another fandom or community, I would probably see it just as much as I do in the brony fandom.  It all boils down to who you expose yourself too.  If you hang out with the members of the negative side of the fandom, you are more likely to take that in more than the positive side and vice versa.  And if you see too much of the bad stuff, you shy away from the group because you let yourself get exposed to the bad.  This might sound rude but I personally consider such people to be weak-minded cowards.  I am sorry, I know that might hurt some people’s feelings, but really, if you can’t learn to not judge others so harshly, how do you expect yourself to get in a good marriage relationship, find a good job, raise good kids and basically be prepared for the world around you?

A lot of these stories are actually fake and made up by haters just to get other people to believe that we are a horrible fanbase full of pedophiles and other avoidable people.  I wouldn’t be one bit surprised if this story was debunked.  Not that I’m not concerned, I am.  Like I said, child molesters and rapists make my skin crawl, but making up stories about it just so you can get other people to hate on others is completely wrong and is going to backfire on you one day.  If any of you see a story like that, I would suggest that you not take it to heart until you know for certain that it is true.

So I guess I’ve said enough, but I will end on this note:  the next time you find a good opportunity to hate on bronies using one example of a bad person, just consider the fact that the same kind of person is in the communities YOU are part of.  They are in your fandoms, your religion, your political party, your race, your gender, your sexuality, they are EVERYWHERE.  That still doesn’t mean those groups you are part of are all bad and if you still think that all bronies are evil just because there are some creepers in this group, you are shooting yourself in the foot.

Life in China pt.1

Becoming a Resident - Making it official!



As I am settling into some form of a consistent lifestyle in China, and it becomes less and less about traveling than documenting exactly what it is to LIVE here. Worry not, I can assure you that every day is still just as much of an adventure as my transport here – plenty of juicy bits to follow up on! 

So…I work late. I mean I work really late – most nights I don't get home until 3 or 4am at the very earliest. So it came as a bit of a shock that on this particular Wednesday night, we as a band were informed that we would be meeting at 9am that following morning to go get our residency papers completed and filed. That time doesn't even EXIST for us lol I catch myself saying "goodmorning" at 5pm with annoyingly predictable frequency haha. But apparently this was the only time it was going to actually work to go do this, and since our coordinator (who works our same hours) was going to have to go with us, it looks like we were all going to have to suck it up and take one for the team!

Featured here: Evens on the walk of shame, relocating his very manly bedding…and our destination the following morning.

The Walk Of Shame by tubbums32 Tianfu Square Statue by tubbums32


The process of getting the residency permits (or rather applying for them) was incredibly predictable. Show up, get a number, wait wait wait wait wait wait wait, and then wait some more as your number seems to be the last one in existence... Luckily, when CVL (Crazy Visa Lady for those not in the know) had us get our photobooth visa pictures done, we received multiple copies. So that means I didn't have to get any other pictures taken for this process – hallelujah! And so there we stood, aliens waiting to be accepted under China's wing.

Aliens by tubbums32


If I haven't mentioned it already, things tend to change rather quickly here, particularly at our club. For example, events are planned last minute and sprung on everyone at a moment's notice. The last I told you, Nuno had just joined us at MIU. Well we were supposed to have a rehearsal to get everyone on the same page, as it would be our first time performing together in the new venue. However, to everyone's surprise, when we arrived at the venue that afternoon, the entire place was packed for some special fund-raising event for which food, extra tables and dance instructors had been arranged and provided (yet we knew nothing about it)! 

Food by tubbums32Clubnight by tubbums32


So we performed that night with a completely new member of the band without even so much as a sound check – life's an adventure eh?? We're completely used to winging it at this point haha. Speaking of sound checks…that's a whole other adventure to which there will be several articulations within this journal and journals to come. Predictably, though, with a new instrument present where there previously was none, there was some disparity of sound for the first set and a half, but by set 3 we were up and running as a full ensemble! 

Singers by tubbums32Everyone by tubbums32


To our great despair, we were informed that night – after our last set – that our early morning residency adventures were not yet over. We were to wake again at 9am the following morning to follow our coordinator to some unknown location to do some unknown paperwork for some unknown governmental agency, and given its official nature, there was obviously no choice in the matter…Fortunately, our rehearsal the next day was canceled in favor of much needed sleep (thank you, Claudio!), and as if by cosmic empathy, we were each of us rewarded by a handsome tip at the club that night – not such a bad day after all :D

Residency Application by tubbums32 


And thusly, we begin to establish some form of a familiar rhythm in the day to day activities, even if it is broken up with unexpected twists and turns every now and then. Again, as always, they like to keep us ever ready for anything: "Constant vigilance!" 


More hours in a day

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 22, 2014, 7:46 PM


don't you wish you had em?
I sure do
even just a couple more,
extend the day to 30 hours and you could really get things done~

Think of all the awesome things you could do in that time?
You could draw and cook and walk your dog and do anything you could imagine!
just think of the possibilities!


..But bad news, there are only 24 hours in a day, and you have a job and classes and a commute and just enough time to watch game of thrones and pass out in a hamburger for a few hours before the alarm goes off..


And then its back to work, back to school, back to business, back to whatever it is that takes up your day and keeps you from getting anywhere..


Your time is suuuuper limited. Most of us are selling hours of our life to someone else, hours that you can't buy back. No refunds or exchanges, your time has been purchased by Soul Crushers Inc.


And yet most of the day, you do see other artists around online who seem so busy yet are constantly updating and posting all day.
Early Morning Warm Up!
Lunch Time Sketches~
After Work color practice**
Late Night Doodle before bed!

and you are just like wha.. wait.. wh..


How the heck does anyone stay productive in their own creative goals while working for the man???
and SPOILER ALERT:: this journal doesn't end with a profound answer, i'm actually asking! XD

Short Answer is the ol "do what you love, and you'll never work a day in your life!"
fa la-lal-lalalala~~~~ rainbows and unicorns, tralala~~~~

Not so easy, its hard out there, and you got bills to pay any which way you can

But we can look for little moments here and there,  look for a break in the storm to take little steps toward your goals. At the end of the week, you'll be a little bit closer~ I spend most of my time at work, but here and there i find little pockets.  Pockets to model a 3D set, or paint some space backgrounds. Pockets to work on 88 whenever i can. It's slow going, but it's IS GOING~ thats the kicker

just keep it going~  doesn't matter how fast, right?   

Every brilliant fucking masterpiece painting was done one dab at a time.  Every epic ancient marble statue was chipped out of big fucking rock slabs one little grain at a time. Each step keeps moving forward. 

I do believe in hard work, and i know you will work twice as hard on something that MEANS something to you, than you will for a paycheck.  You can sell your time, but you can't sell your dreams. That shit belongs to you!

I guess I wrote this to motivate myself,  hopefully motivates you along with me..?
yeah?  yeah!

one foot in front of the other, we'll get there!

Help--I Need Somebody--Help

Not just anybody~
Helllllp~

Sorry for The Beatles moment there. XD But I seriously do need a bit of help.

I've already posted a journal like this on my Marvelous Misfits' group page, marvelousmisfits.deviantart.co…, but for those of you who aren't there and haven't seen it I need to ask again. XD

Okay, does anybody know how to make stamps or buttons or at least know anyone who can? If so, please read the journal from the link I've posted here and note me after you read it if you're up for the challenge.

Pleeeeeease? I'd be most grateful!
