Are highly intelligent or very talented people better able to hide their misery from loved ones, thus making it all the harder to “read” them and help them?

I dont rant publicy very often but now I am putting my foot down.


Every week I have to deal with some stranger I havent talked to trying to use me for all the watchers that have come to my account. Let me just make one thing straight, this is not an account to feature, help spread stuff and all that, this is my gallery. IF that makes you mad or upset then go be friggin mad and upset I dont give a flappityhockeypuck. I dont care if you think I have an ego for not wanting to feature you, and help out. Jesus grow up there are hundreds of ways to feature yourself if you got of your lazy asses.

STOP ASKING ME. Stop trying to GUILT trip me by using your sick pets or sick family memebers. Dont come to me if all you care about is views.

What pisses me of the most is that 99% of the time I get asked some kind of version of this are from people who BARELY talk to me or have never talked to me at all.

yeah this is a big pet peeve of mine, so if you do not want to get on my bad side, dont do this please, no one likes to be used, I do a lot for my watchers and those who follow me, and I use many hours daily spent on this site.

If you are a close friend there is an exception, you can use me however you want :la: just sing it and ill do it. I dont mind being used by my lovebugs

This also brings me to another thing. Dont force friendship on me because you want free sheets. Go buy them !!11one
Forcing friendship is the most akward thing ever and will end in 100% unsucsessfull friendseets

Now if you are butthurt because I am strict for once, then good, time to learn that people arent cinderellas and princess rolemodels, they are people, with their own lives.

Yes believe me, people stop respecting me because I am strict, people even stop having me as an idol because I tell them to follow dA's rules xD I must be a real villian. omg I should have a costume! maybe Ill make a design contest for it. I already have a cat >8D

Custom: Strawberry Fluff Angel Food Cake Sushi Cat by witchpaws

What’s been going on this week?

Phil Fish was DOXXED (for standing up for Zoe Quinn) and all his personal information was leaked onto the internet, including SSI info, home address, bank records, etc. As a result, Phil decided to leave gaming forever and is now selling off the IP rights to FEZ and Polytron. Link:…

Meanwhile 4chan/Reddit have decided that Phil Fish WASN’T hacked and that he faked the whole thing because... ? 4chan also called the FBI on Phil because they believe fake hacking your own account is a “federal offense.” Gotta love how 4channers are more willing to make up and believe a conspiracy theory than admit they made a mistake... Link (warning: conspiracy theory level nonsense):…

Zoe Quinn, a female independent game developer who made a game called Depression Quest, got harassed by an ex-boyfriend who decided to post nasty things about her and accuse her of using her influences in the “sacred” world of games journalism to get positive reviews through sexual favors with reviewers. An accusation that was later proved false (shocks of shocks!) since the reviewer for Kotaku in question never actually reviewed her game. Link:…

She was also accused of actively trying to take down “The Fine Young Capitalists” despite the fact that she’s using proceeds from her games to be donated to struggling women indi and queer devs and is trying to patch up her mistake with TFYC (though they haven’t responded to her e-mails yet).…

Both Zoe Quinn and Anita Sarkeesian were forced to flee their homes because their home addresses are publicly known now and assholes on the internet were threatening to break into their homes to rape/murder them. So... yeah. If you honestly think “it’s just the internet, ignore the haters, they can’t possibly do anything to you in real life” is still true, you’re just deluding yourself. Anita Story Link:… Zoe Quinn Story Link:…

And finally actor Adam Baldwin (currently starring in the new TNT tv-series “The Last Ship”) has fallen on the “I-hate-Zoe-Quinn” bandwagon and is actively spreading the leaked nude photos of her around online and is harassing her on twitter. Link:…

Meanwhile Joss Whedon (director of The Avengers) and Tim Schafer both took the side of Anita Sarkeesian on twitter. Link:…
  • Mood: Frustrated
  • Watching: Atop The 4th Wall

The lady was super nice and really happy to meet me.

She wants me to be a storyboard revisionist as a starting job and says I’ve got some time to work around things if I want to start sooner or later… And to e-mail her with questions and stuff still and all but…

Yeah, I got the job p much.
