Rape Culture and Irresponsible JournalismTrigger warning:Rape Culture and Irresponsible Journalism1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
This will probably make you angry, but if it does - share it and speak your mind to those who matter.
I would like to remind the readers of this article that it is my opinion, and that my complaint is with the COVERAGE of this news story. I do not know enough about the actual crime to comment on it and would therefore prefer not to. My issue is with the coverage of this news story and many others like it across the globe. I hope you will share this article, or your own thoughts on irresponsible journalism today, preferably with the broadcasters themselves if you believe that responsible journalism should take priority over entertaining journalism.

Earn MS Points + Halo 4 CodesGamers who spend 35-75 hours will receive 100 MS points for free and those who play 70-140 hours will earn 300 free MS points for their game play. If you are addicted to Halo 4's multiplayer mode, you can receive 600 MS points for playing 140 plus hours of multiplayer mode.Earn MS Points + Halo 4 Codes2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Also, spending 1500 MS points on Halo content earns you 100 MS points, and spending 3000 MS points on Halo content earns you 200 points. However you can only earn them by the end of November, and can only earn 800 MS points altogether.
I'd say it's barely worth it, but that's my opinion.
Halo 4 will not be making it's way to the personal computer. Just like it's 4 predecessors, Halo 3, ODST, Reach, and Wars, it will remain a console exclusive for the Xbox 360.

Harley Quinn Part 2There's been a LOT of talk about this contest. http://www.dccomics.com/node/305151 Most of it negative, some of it positive, and some of it trying VERY hard to justify it. I've already said my peace about it in 3 consecutive comics which you can read here:Harley Quinn Part 21 year ago in Personal More Like This
But outside that there's still a lot of debate going on and I wanted to touch upon it. First up, there were a lot of people trying to justify "why" she was committing suicide. A lot of these people suggested things like "she's a crazy character and she's unstable so of course she would do something like this" or "she'd probably do this if the joker left her." And while those people DO have a point... all of it is rendered null and void when the creators of the contest come right out and say that the point of these attempted suicides was a tongue-in-cheek gag at the awful shit they were gonna put Harley through. As in, she sees what they're gonna write a

About My FeonixesTo clarify now, these are my little critters (some of these examples are owned by other people)About My Feonixes2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In the past I've sold 'adoptables' of these guys. I created designs and color patterns ect and sold them. I've also done custom Feonixes where people have some freedom on what they want their design to look like.
I am going to be doing what I'm doing so if there are people out there that want one of my critters, they can. But please be respectful of a few guidelines. Feonixes are not 'sparkledogs' or have some chunk of hair on their heads and I'd like it to stay this way.
What does this mean? Feonixes are an open species. This means you can create one, put it in your story, draw it once and never draw it again, ectect. The only thing I ask you to do after you create one is to credit me in some fashion.
Please do not make adoptables, variat

NEW: Ultra Magnus (17 screenshots, not many since there was WAY TOO MUCH MOTION BLUR EVERYWHERE!)
I know Prime characters are difficult to draw due to their massive amount of details ect. ect. and Youtube quality is more or less very pixelated depending on who has uploaded episodes. So here's a bunch of screenshots for you to use as references. Only thing I ask is that don't share links directly to the images on photobucket, share this journal entry instead

Crona's Poem a day in night.Crona's Poem2 years ago in Personal More Like This
white to black
souls to broken souls
dark into light
i was abused as a child
no one loved me
i was used for her own
killing after killing
eating soul after soul
made me stronger
made me fall into madness
i cried for help
no one came
i was on the verge
of being lost forever
when a light came
bringing the darkness away
her name was Maka
she showed me everything
that i wasn't alone.
as time went on
she took me away
erasing my memory
she completed her fun
i killed her
the rules have been set
i must go
but with that
one last goodbye
i knew my battle was done
i will make
the world fall before me
by tilting the world in madness
Black and White Mindset?After the government shutdown post I made yesterday I started thinking about something... Is it at all possible that the reason why internet opinions and interactions are so blindly polarizing and extreme is because the American political system is so polarizing and extreme? Could the reason discourse online is so black and white be a result of being seeped in such black and white political mindsets for so long that we have difficulty breaking out of the mold?Black and White Mindset?11 months ago in Personal More Like This

Hanabi though she doesn't like the new order at all she follows her master and serves as an inquisitor and as Kahan's conscience till she dies eventually because of her good heart.
