RetardA couple of people (literally only two, but it's a matter worth mentioning) emailed me after they had read the most recent Sequential Art strip, in which the fictitious element “Retardium” is mentioned. Both messages voiced disapproval at my using the word “Retard” due to its slang referencing of the mentally disabled.Retard8 months ago in Personal More Like This
That interpretation of the word, in my eyes, is outdated.
Used in describing a mentally disabled individual, “retard” is a slur, and (as with any slur) anyone who says it in that context deserves a sharp blow to the head. However, used to describe a “wilfully ignorant, able-bodied idiot”, I think “retard” is perfectly acceptable. I’ll wager that everyone reading this knows someone that can accurately be described as a "f**king retard", none of whom are disabled in the slightest, nor in using the word is a mentally disabled person even thought of.
I’ve not heard “retard” used to des

Russian politics: the art of flimsy excuses.On the whole, believe there’s a difference between the people that run a country and the rest of the people who live within its borders. Politicians, regardless of where in the world they hail from, are generally bullies. You have to be a special kind of egomanic, self-serving prick to claw your way into a position where you have the power to put other people in harm’s way to benefit your own agenda. The only difference geography seems to bring is a level of subtlety. British politicians are slimy and insidious, American politicians rely on drama and theatre, and as we’ve seen over the last couple of days: Russian politicians are obsessed with proving they carry the biggest stick, at the expense of everything else.Russian politics: the art of flimsy excuses.7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Of course, in order to prove you have a big stick, you have to actually use it. That’s quite difficult in this day and age. A couple of hundred years ago, a master of a people could just point to a spot on the map, say “Want!” and his army

Beware The BatmanI caught the first episode of Beware the Batman.Beware The Batman1 year ago in Personal More Like This
What a pile of rancid, charm-free, cheap-looking, poorly written, spineless, generic pap.
To start with, I hate the character design. There's nothing memorable about anyone you see on screen, with the exception of Batman's strange cranial deformation. It looks like someone's been hitting him over the head with a mallet, which is entirely possible given that Alfred has turned into Cato, from The Pink Panther: randomly attacking his employer to keep him on his toes.
And then we have the villains. Batman has, arguably, the best Rogues Gallery in fiction. It's that which makes his stories so interesting, not the brooding. You'd think with the opening episode, they'd want to start strong, or at least hint at some major threat, lurking in the shadows.
Instead, they give us a man dressed as a pig and a frog-man that burps.
And what's with the f**king laser guns?! If any one franchise is ideal for carrying an anti-gun

A Pop Culture Interpretation of The Supernatural
Every culture around the world created gods and other mythical beings by mixing and matching fanged and taloned animal parts—e.g., enormous eagle heads on lions’ bodies—human beings have always seemed to need to believe there are powerful and usually quite vengeful supernatural beings lurking just beyond the candlelight.
Supernatural beings come to serve several purposes:
They kept people on the lighted path of truth and goodness, fearful of exploring beyond;
They were a reminder of the punishment we deser

A New Wind Lifts Storytelling
First imagined as a bedtime tale for his son by Kenneth Grahame in 1908, The Wind in the Willows has remained in the top twenty children’s stories ever since. But things have been getting weird out in the Willows, as the new comic on deviantART, Weirding Willows, will attest to.
Badger, Mole, Ratty and Mr. Toad are back… but they’re joined by Alice, Frankenstein’s Monster, Mowgli, The White Rabbit, Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny as they defend the world from the Wicked Witch of the West, Doctor Moreau, the Mad Hatter, Mister Hyde and the Queen of Hearts (not to mention the flying nightmare monkeys from Wizard of Oz.)

I don't like to reveal things or go into depth about how I feel, but right now I feel that I need to be honest because I'm just at the point where I feel like i'm drowning. And no I'm not doing this for some petty attention, i'm doing this because I know I have been short temp. with some people and perhaps once people read this they will realize i'm not trying to be some attention grabbing bitch.
My parents are both dead. I don't want to do any rp's right now dealing with death, ghosts, or anything halloween. My mother died on October 26th last year and was put to rest on Halloween so I effing hate October, and my father died in September, and it doesn't help the fact I am constantly reminded of them by their ghosts. So if you talk to me about death I will ignore you. A warning in advance.
To be honest I hate how people are so effing 'gimme, gimme', All day and even on here I read how people complain they don't get allowances and how t

A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.
