Mature themes in American AnimationWhen I first discovered Anime, my mind was blown. Here were Japanese animations being made which told adult stories with sex, violence, and all sorts of things I'd never seen before done in American films. As a teenager the constant pandering to children and the reluctance to accept more mature themes and ideas in American animated films pissed me off. Why can't american cartoons be taken more seriously and have stuff for adults too outside of South Park and The Simpsons?Mature themes in American Animation2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In 1998 Stephen Spielberg tried to change that. After having a successful run of kids cartoons (Tiny Toons, Animaniacs, Pink and the Brain, etc), he took it a step further by giving us a PRIME TIME cartoon series aimed at adults. It was called "Invasion America." It was a sci-fi epic, featured a slew of big name actors including Leonard Nimoy, and featured more adult oriented themes such as sex, violence, and swearing!
It sucked and was a resounding failure.
The epic plot they were trying to weave would never be compl

Unfinished StoryJust a night like any other. Parents telling their kids to get to sleep, couples cuddling in bed, college students studying, but there was something different about this girls night. Anger and violence filled the air, but that was normal for her house. What was different was it was her last night alive.Unfinished Story10 months ago in Personal More Like This
She'd thought through the pros and cons of her actions. The consequences that might effect her family after her death, but she didn't care. She'd be done with the feelings of hurt and betrayal, the anger she felt daily. She'd be at peace in a never ending sleep.
Behind a locked door, she took the blade to her arm one final time. There was no pain, no regret. No stopping the bleeding and turning back. She just let it happen, staring at the white ceiling as she slowly bled out on the sheets.
Morning came, her parents pounded on the locked door for her to wake up.
Some more yelling, something about her being late now and missing the bus. She pulled herself from her bed, then she saw

Ok, some of you might remember the little drawing competition face off thing my friend and I were doing with each other. (I announced it a month or so ago) Some of you might not care. XD; But anyways, both :icongogglespizano:'s drawing and my drawing are finished and will be uploaded tomorrow (or in the very near future).

Updatey Things?So, it's only been forever since I updated my journal on DA. Though, most of the people who watch me are my friends irl so it makes sense.Updatey Things?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, since my last entry I've lost my job at the thrift store because it closed, got a new car and laptop, and moved into School Sponsored Housing with the Art Institute. It's my 5th quarter in, and I'm now deciding that I don't particularly like the major I'm in. On the bright side, I'm making more friends in my classes, so that's good.
My housing situation is interesting. I've never lived with other people my age before. My only sibling is 8 years younger than me, so I've never really had the experience. Also, coming from an [almost overbearing] Christian household into college dorms is.. different. But, I do seem to be getting along relatively well with my roomies, so that's good. Totally have a crush on one of them.. he's so adorable<3 Unfortunately he's straight and taken.. so there's that.

Regarding my future surgery [ pretty personal ]So before I go into anything here, I'd like to warn all of you reading this that it's pretty darned personal, and has to do with breasts, so if you're a guy and you seriously don't want to know that much about my anatomy or actually a girl or ANYONE who might be squeamish or weirded out, feel free to back out immediately (｡☉౪ ⊙｡)Regarding my future surgery [ pretty personal ]8 months ago in Personal More Like This
seriously, you might not want to read this.
Although I'm not going to talk about the actual surgical procedures because //SHUDDERS//
So I mentioned last night that I was going to see a surgeon today, but I only mentioned in a few comments that it's a plastic surgeon (a breast reduction specialist, actually). The appointment went very smoothly; I was first asked to watch a short video on the reduction method and surgery before a general check-up (weight, blood pressure, etc) and then finally to meet the surgeon. He's honestly brilliant. I can tell that he knows what he's talking about, and he also has a very good

I'm still collecting all works involving Yaroslav and Sif. Please keep in mind that English isn't my native language. But I will try my best to develop their story.
Also, huge thanks to my best friend and co-author :iconkimir-ra: We combined our worlds and created a new exciting story!
Yaroslav is one of the four ancient gods who once took a part in creating a world, where Taho rules for now.
Yar is responsible for the destruction of worlds, which are listed as 'finished their life'. He is often assists at the wars and cataclysms, which foreshadow the destruction of worlds. His has stealthy and quiet character, he is silent and rarely seen in anger.
He has no magic as such, excluding congenital peculiarities - his presence has a detrimental effect on every creature. All who are close to him die sooner or later. Therefore, Yaroslav lives alon

Saturday mornings are super again. Harkening back to the glory days the 1970s and '80s when kids got their weekends going with Super Friends and School House Rock, Cartoon Network is launching DC Nation, a programming block that showcases the heroes of the DC Comics library. Anchoring the hour will be the CGI show Green Lantern: The Animated Series (10am/9c) and the continuation of the first season of Young Justice (10:30am/9:30c). Scattered Throughout the hour are animated shorts and interstitials with news and vignettes from around the DC universe.
Though some of the shorts feature big names like Superman and Batman, many will put the spotlight on "characters we've always wanted to see animated, but that might not be able to support a whole series," says Peter Giardi, senior vice president at Warner Bros. Animation, which is coordinating the block. Among the second-tier characters featured are Black Lightenin

SO Wednesday I got a call from the burger place across the street from my house. The first time ANYONE has called about an application i've turned in, and he hired me right away! 8O
He asked if i could work that every same night, but it was very unexpected and I had already made plans so he said "ok, how about tomorrow?" I told him yes even though I had planned to get a hair cut tomorrow. Luckily he said i'd go in after the time I was thinking of getting my hair cut, so i went in today at 2pm for my first day!
Ah I'm so SCARED. In all honesty I dont think they're very good at training new people, cept for one guy who was semi-new too, but I guess there's not too much to learn really, just how to take orders (which you use abbreviations for, and have to place it on certain unmarked areas of a blankish paper), the register (where I was like uber nervous about cuz it's my FIRST DAY at my FIRST JOB) as well as use the register...which i kinda get..but ya I w
Regarding SOPA and deviantART (update)Our view at deviantART regarding SOPA is that it's probably a bad idea. There should be better ways to deal with mass infringement on the Internet than this.

For starters, I've been stressing out lately which has been cockblocking my art which isn't good since I doodle the most when I'm stressed. The down side is that my tablet is not working. :iconbaawwplz: TABLET Y U NO WORK??!
And so now I'm just cycling through the biggest bummer right now desperately trying to get to work and draw since that's all I have left.
As far as cosplay goes, it's moving slow since I don't have a job or any extra money left over from financial aid to help out, but at least it's moving. Here's a somewhat solid plan for AX12:
