First UTAU to VOCALOID Announced: Macne NanaMacne Nana (first name Nana, Macne also means "Mac Sound") is going to be the first UTAU to become a VOCALOID. Her voice provider is Ikezawa Haruna who also voiced Macne Nana Petit and has done numerous voice acting roles for animes as well. For those of you that don't know Macne Nana she was created to be a singing synthesizer for Mac since VOCALOID was not Mac compatible, she worked on GarageBand only. UTAU users figured out how to port her voicebank into UTAU to get her to sing. She has a 3 sisters and a father; Macne Nana Petit (she has a form called Sasayaki), Macne Coco (White), Macne Coco (Black), and Macne Papa. Soon after the years passed Nana and Petit received a 2S update which vastly improved her vocal quality. Now, since VOCALOID NEO was just released (which is the only VOCALOID system compatible with Mac) it has been announced that Macne Nana will become a VOCALOID!

Kid's Movies: No Thought Required?My recent rant on The Lego Movie let me in on a trend of thought I find a little disturbing, but I can understand in retrospect.Kid's Movies: No Thought Required?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Kid's movies are, by their nature, not to be taken seriously.
This seems to encompass any and all considerations of deeper meaning in any film defined, or suspected to be defined as, entertainment for children.
The assumptions arising from this position are a little disturbing to me.
1: Kids don't think about what they watch, and shouldn't be expected to try.
2: All apparent messages in movies are untrue, unintended, or carelessly misleading.
Other then this, what conclusion can I come to here?
Are there any other times when not thinking somehow makes up for the deficiencies in a product?
If someone served you lousy food, would you decide it was worth the price because it wasn't even intentionally good? And more to the point, would you give lousy food to a kid because they don't know the difference between good and bad food anywa

Challenge 1: Clean Media, Clean MindWelcome to the first 30 day challenge! This month’s challenge is:Challenge 1: Clean Media, Clean Mind3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Clean Media, Clean Mind
You’ve heard “you are what you eat” and it applies to more than just food. So the challenge is to clean up what sites you visit, videos you watch, and music you listen to. After the month is over, tell us via picture or journal how changing what you consume, has changed how you think, speak, and act. Things to cut out of your media diet: sex, drugs, drinking, swearing, occult, and violence.
These challenges will be harder for some than others, so I’ve included three levels of commitment.
Level 1: baby steps
Cut out media that is blatantly sinful. I’m talking porn, violent movies, songs that swear every other word, etc. If it’s too hard to hold off for 30 days, consider how that itself is a problem. Are you making media an idol? Talk to a trust friend about it or a fellow group member. Also consider listening to a positive radio station:

First here's what would look like in the newsstand or local comic book store shelf.
Not bad huh? Just to clarify to everyone this is a mock publication that will be personally submitted (in person) to Archie Comics at Comic Con San Diego 2013 as a portfolio review (and as a gift too!). I plan to have a chat with Paul Kaminski (current Editor/Executive Director of Editorial at Archie Comics) and see what I need to do to gain a spot to work there in the near future.
And to be honest with you, many people here may think that I want to be one of the sequential artists, or be the one in charge of artistic direction (ie in the visual sense, like advanced story boarding ) of the stories that Ian writes for the Sonic series, or be one of those who help touch up the comic art (eg inker/colourist/letterer etc) but the reality is I'm not really interested in those aspects - and I know for a fact t

I'm immensely proud of this production, immensely pleased with Kovabomb's performance as Enerjak (boy he kicked ass, some of his lines are unforgettable - "It seems that you've scuffed my helment - HOW RUDE!!" & "... the power... Yeeeeess!") and Brenda's performance as Jani-ca (my most favourite performance of hers is when she is casting her magic with the Sword of Acorns to steal back Enerjak's powers and contain them altogether - by the power of the trademark 'Echidna Heritage Chant' aka "The servers were the Seven Chaos. Chaos is enriched by the heart! ...").
Oh and because I couldn't help but love Silver the Hedgehog, and that I have this hint of ego when it come to voicing the character, I gotta say that I vastly improved on my vocal performance for this guy (and I don't care if

My fellow fans, it is now the ten year anniversary of the Nickelodeon hit show “My life as a teenage robot”. Created by master of animation Rob Renzetti, often considered to be Nickelodeons 1st true fairy tale, & lasting 3 seasons, do you really think it got the climax it deserved? In fact, how many shows can you think of that failed to receive a proper end? If it could go on for a fourth season, how would we know? & is there anything we, the fans, can do? There are many things one can do as an active member of any fan base he/ she chooses.
This is one of them. About a month ago, me and a small team of animators & artists, some of which are veterans of “Double Rainboom”, began producing an online series on our new channel, New Toon City.
