Protecting The Sea - Behind The ScenesHello, fine person!Protecting The Sea - Behind The Scenes3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today I want to give you an insight into how I help to protect the oceans and how much is involved in it. Nothing is ever as simple as protesting, voicing opinions or dragging dolphins off beaches. A lot of things have to be done from a lot of different angles. Those of us who are in the thick of it are always cog wheels in a larger undertaking. I'm able to tell you how it actually is out there, so I'll try to outline how it all feeds together to reach real goals.
But let me start at the beginning.
Germany is one of the leading countries in switching to renewable energy sources - until 2050, the government plans to rely to 80% on green energy. One of the requirements to achieve this goal is to build wind power plants not on land, but at sea.
Imagine it - wind farms in the middle of the sea. An amazing sight! How do they get there? How are they installed? Well, the wind piles get rammed into the sediment by large hydraulic hammers - essentially, it's an upscale versi
Other movie Animated AtrocitiesWith Cars 2 coming along for review, I thought I'd list some of the other movie Animated Atrocities I'd be doing. I'll note right now that I don't do movies that people like the Nostalgia Critic have already done, and Food Fight was done by JonTron too. I might make an exception for Quest for Camelot though, for my own reasons.Other movie Animated Atrocities2 years ago in Personal More Like This

The Meaning of LifeMost people, if they haven't had it already, are looking for that one moment that defines their life. They've finally come to the culmination of all of their interests and experiences and know with absolute certainty that "this is what I want to do with the rest of my life." Some cynical people think that that moment won't ever come. I know that it comes though. For me, it's come about 12 times now.The Meaning of Life4 months ago in Personal More Like This
I've talked about my Asperger's Syndrome before (now known as a part of Autism Spectrum Disorder), and mostly I'm fine with it. There are symptoms I've overcome, like my social anxiety. There are symptoms that I manage to deal with, like increased sensitivity to touch and taste. And then there's this one: the intense interest. This symptom has been the hardest to describe to people, for some reason or another. So... I'll try my best.
In laymen's terms, it's an intense interest in a very narrow subject. Like, upon discovering you like to do this, you feel like you could do this and this alon
Markiplier SupporterThis nonsense regarding abuse has gone too far. The hate towards Mark and other people of the fanbase is ridiculous. I can honestly say I have never been more disappointed in this fanbase. Hopefully it's just a bad day. But I just can't understand how things got so out of hand so quickly.Markiplier Supporter1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I don't really care what your stance is, but I will always support Mark. Even if he ever says something I don't agree with, I'll either deal with it or just stop watching or whatever. But never, NEVER would I go through with demonizing him over a misunderstanding. It's ridiculous, and completely unfair. The man has enough on his shoulders as it is.
If you have a problem with that, unwatch me or whatever. If you have a question for me, feel free to ask. It won't change my mind.
An Ethical Question #2Someone makes a choice for you. They have the power and authority to do it. This is a permanent choice. They make this choice in your best interest. However, later on you feel that this choice has affected you very negatively, with little to no positives. It's noticeable, every single day, and it will never go away. Maybe there's been more research on said topic revealing the prevailing wisdom at the time stupid or ignorant. How would you react? How would you approach the person who made the choice for you, if at all?An Ethical Question #23 months ago in Personal More Like This
Let me explain response videos very clearlyI've got a very specific rules here. Here's the general idea: if you don't follow them, I don't give you the time of day. They're not rocket science, I've stated them and the reasoning behind them. These are simple things, like don't insult me or don't ask for my skype. The most controversial is number 9, I don't watch response videos.Let me explain response videos very clearly4 months ago in Personal More Like This
I never said don't make them. Just don't expect me to watch them. Ever. People seem to have a hard time grasping this, which... mystifies me. Like, let's start with the fact that anyone who makes a response video on YouTube has a YouTube channel in which they can comment on any video they are responding too. Unless I've blocked them, and if that's the case, it's another reason I'm not listening to them. But fine, to give people the benefit of the doubt, I will give people every single reason I have.
1.) Time is a factor. My average video is 7 minutes and can go up to 40 minutes. A response video will be twice as long. That's just watching it. Then there'
Do you know what's funWriting letters to both your past self and your future self. I found an old memory box that... kind of gave me a weird feeling. Even though I clearly was the person who put everything in the box, it feels like the person who put this together was a completely different person. And that makes sense, I've changed. A lot. I started putting things inside that box in 2007, which is what... eight years ago?Do you know what's fun2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
What was in the box? Well, first of all that's where I put all of my birthday and holiday cards. Pretty much all of them. My dog's bandanna (Patrick, the one I made a video for). My first report card from high school. A Catholic Bible, which I got for my First Communion, and a lot of letters. The details are a little too personal to really get into, but I had a lot of anxieties. For example, one thing my past self wrote is "things that scare me are talking [and] novel situations..." I wrote that as a freshmen and high school was not the easiest time of my life, or the best time of my life
Novels vs. ScreenplaysI'm wondering, in this day and age which is it more fruitful to write? A novel or a screenplay? I ask this because I've gotten a new idea that could go either way: a novel or a (film-length) screenplay. More and more recently I seem to enjoy writing screenplays more than prose, but prose (the format a novel is written in) still has plenty of advantages. Speaking of that, I understand many of the pros and cons:Novels vs. Screenplays1 month ago in Personal More Like This
-They can dawdle in certain scenes and bring up larger and larger internal conflicts/descriptions, and they can do this without bogging things too much.
-Are more detailed in general.
-Is more able to use stories that have little to no emphasis on characters
-Easier to publish.
-More straight forward
-Less tools to explain the plot
-Internal conflict is harder to convey
-It's nearly impossible to do certain concepts in anything but art house films.
-More accessible to a general audience, especially in the age of instant media.

The purpose of copyrightI've made it no secret that I've had a lot of issues with the current rules and regulations of copyright. I'll admit right now that most of my works are derivative in some way, and I'm not here to argue fair use. I will say that I find great joy in making video reviews of product, writing scripts to spoof movies, and lately combining previous images in photo manipulations. The latter of which I can't show you, mostly because many places are unclear about the license of their images and it's hard to figure out if you need a model release for a person who is really the culmination of five different people. I could post here and fight under the banner of fair use once again, but I'm not particularly interested in doing that. Instead I'm interested in talking about the purpose of copyright law.The purpose of copyright5 months ago in Personal More Like This
In purpose, copyright law is to entice creators to create more, knowing that no one else can profit on their work.
I don't need to argue the reality of how it's used. Right now, in the United States

Art CommissionsArt Commissions4 years ago in Personal More Like This
How to order: E-mail me at email@example.com or send me a DA note. In your e-mail or note please describe your project in detail and attach or link good quality reference images or photos. I typically respond within a day or two and we can discuss the project in greater detail, including cost and deadlines. I will fill out an Artist’s Agreement form and send you a copy so there will be no confusion on prices, deadlines, and what the project entails. For commercial commissions, I will have a more in-depth contract and your signature will be required once we hash out an agreement of terms. I reserve the right to submit all commissioned pieces to any of my online portfolios, unless we agree the work should remain private.

Why people are overweight in AmericaConsidering that I've talked about one major cultural problem recently, let's talk about another one. Many people outside of the United States probably don't know about the standardized testing problem, but most seem to know about this one. It's one of the stereotypes that Americans are overweight, and according to statistics over one third of Americans are. This doesn't mean one third of Americans are morbidly obese. To figure out if you're overweight, you use this formula:Why people are overweight in America2 months ago in Personal More Like This
52 kg + 1.9 kg per inch over 5 feet (man)
49 kg + 1.7 kg per inch over 5 feet (woman)
It's a serious problem, and the problem doesn't seem to be getting better. In fact, it's getting a lot worse. Let's start with the obvious:
Most people know that being overweight is unhealthy. You're deluding yourself if you're not. Overweight people do know this, and incessantly telling them this doesn't really... help the problem. Most people also know that the way to hit your ideal healthy weight is correct diet and
My Writing Philosophy - Writing ParentsSo, I decided to re-watch Stewie is Enceinte because that's something you do... when you have way too much time on your hands. It's not going to be my next review (I need the unlimited time cap for now), but it's another issues-fueled review. I bring this up because... it's a lot like Peter-Assment. It tries to convey an issue, but does so... so poorly. And it's not an unimportant issue either. Honestly, I already feel that if I review that episode it's... going to be difficult.My Writing Philosophy - Writing Parents2 months ago in Personal More Like This
The trope is called "The Baby Trap." It's when someone, usually a woman, deliberately causes a pregnancy without their partner's consent. In the "best" case scenario, it's to try to salvage a relationship. In the "worst" case scenario, it's to use someone else for child support. By the way, pregnancy is one of those things that makes equality... really, really tough.

12 Oz. Mouse and PostmodernismI'm going to say right now that 12 Ounce Mouse has been one of the most annoying things for me to review. Ever. The cartoon that looks like animated MS paint drawings as actually demanded more research than any other review thus far, which is why it's so late. This is because there are only 3 things that 12 Ounce Mouse can be.12 Oz. Mouse and Postmodernism3 months ago in Personal More Like This
1.) A lazy piece of shit with no effort.
2.) Dada art. Also known as "high class trolling" or "creating a piece of shit and calling it art while being pretentious about its validity as art"
3.) Postmodern art.
So... what is postmodernism? Confusing as hell. If you want an accurate and complete definition of the philosophy or the type of art, you're not going to find one. It boils down to this: Postmodernism is the belief that there is no absolute truths. Except maybe... that there is no absolute truth. Postmodern works of art deliberately go against established "rules" of art. In postmodernism there is no boundaries between genres, or anything else re

10 Things I'd Review if I did Live-ActionThese would be atrocities unless otherwise noted. In no particular order10 Things I'd Review if I did Live-Action6 months ago in Personal More Like This
Number 10: The Adventures of Shark Boy and Lava Girl
This is number 10 because the Nostalgia Critic has already reviewed it, and I don't do things reviewed by him. However, I'll still count this because if I reviewed live-action stuff, there's a good chance that I'd have reviewed this movie before he did. I don't know how much I'd have to explain this one. Intentionally or not, it is one of the stupidest movies I've ever seen in my life. The CGI and the 3D is over-the-top and not done well in the slightest. The story makes very little sense. The characters aren't memorable in the slightest. But, like I said, Nostalgia Critic already did this film, so you probably know of the problems with this film. I guess, you could also throw Spy Kids 4 in this slot too.
Number 9: Silent Hill/Silent Hill Revelations
Silent Hill is one of my favorite video game series, and so I'd have a bone to pick wit

My Top 100 Favorite Video Games (100-91)So, for me to do a 1001 Video Games You Must Play Before You Die, I think it would be good to tell you guys my taste in video games. My favorites are a combination of nostalgia, fun, play-ability, and overall product. How am I going to sort these? How much that I respect them as a video game is the closest thing that lines up on list, although there are great games I admittedly don't care about and vice-versa. It's not "I'd rather play number 52 over number 51" though. One thing that each of these games have in common is that at some point I was obsessed with them, kind of like what I've done with Haven and Hearth, and more recently Project Zomboid, here. It's the kind of gamer I am. But by the definition of how I'm ranking this list, you can imagine that this part is going to be filled with the most random crap. And if there are some games similar to my picks, recommend them to me.My Top 100 Favorite Video Games (100-91)2 years ago in Personal More Like This

I got there as everyone was putting up Christmas decorations, so I decided to stick around and help with that for awhile.

Predicting the FutureYou know what it's fun for everyone to do? Try and predict the future. For some reason everyone likes to predict mass apocalypse, whether it's the Y2k Bug that was going to destroy us all in the year 2000, or the Mayan Calendar that was going to destroy us all in the year 2012, or the Earth being engulfed by the sun in billions of years. That last one will probably happen, it's just that I don't predict it killing the human race because that would assume that human beings would know about a problem for billions of years, never develop technology, and never attempt to deal with that problem. I'm not going to try to predict the apocalypse. I'm going to try to predict problems that we may face in the next 10-50 years, problems which are going to take some thought process to get around or solve. I may be totally wrong, but the future is always a fun thing to predict. I mean, hoverboards are supposed to be invented this month.Predicting the Future2 months ago in Personal More Like This

Explaining my rules hereSo, a lot of people recently have been questioning why I've made certain rules here on my various channels, and the logic behind some of the stranger ones. First of all, a lot of people don't think they should listen to them. That's fine, as long as they realize I don't have to keep them around. I'd like to think that most people would like to know upfront what I'll allow and what I won't allow.Explaining my rules here5 months ago in Personal More Like This
But doesn't making these rules just make more people break them? Um... no. At this point, I can affirm that no it does not. Besides, that logic doesn't really hold up.

When does Skepticism become ConspiracyHere's a favorite talking point: conspiracy nuts. You've heard them saying that literally everything about everything you've been told is a lie. From the moon landing to 9/11 to everything after and before being a plot by lizard aliens to take us over. Unlike most of the crazy people in the world, these guys are pretty funny because they don't do much damage... except in one domain: demonization of skepticism. Now conspiracy nuts are the exact opposite of skeptical, but whenever someone thinks that the government might be lying to us about something (nukes in Whatever Country), or we've been mislead with facts about something (like water fluoridation), your average internet user will ride them off as a conspiracy nut.When does Skepticism become Conspiracy2 months ago in Personal More Like This
