Rape Culture and Irresponsible JournalismTrigger warning:Rape Culture and Irresponsible Journalism2 years 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.

does LEGO think I'm retarded?So get this.does LEGO think I'm retarded?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
you may know about iBIONICLE his campaign to bring back bionicle. By sending a complaint to their site. I did because I love the stuff even though I am sceptical about what would happen to it, if it in fact would return. Would they make it as good as it was, or would it get a shitty TV show as well?
That being beside the point, I got an e-mail from the Dutch department of LEGO explaining this could not happen due to the development time of a new theme. Also something with THE LAW prevents them to make bionicle any more, why is not explained.
But then comes the almost insulting part. It is not the fact that they think I can't see the similarities between bionicle and herofactory by telling me it is an alternative NOOOHOHOOO. It is this sentence.... this one line of text that hit me like a backhand. And I quote/translate: "Did you know you can design and build your own HeroFactory models?'' And then they proceed to give me a link to their ''pick a brick'' page.
They have to

The 10 Greatest Halo Soundtracks and Their SongsI noticed something the other day about the Halo franchise. There are officially 10 soundtracks, excluding the remastered Halo: Anniversary and Halo 2 Anniversary soundtracks. Listening to all of them over the course of one day, I felt compelled to make a list, though purely opinionated, on which of these albums I felt best represented Halo, the number one spot going to the soundtrack I feel best represents Halo musically. The songs I chose to represent the soundtracks are based on replayability (MUSICAL replayablity). My choices may surprise you....The 10 Greatest Halo Soundtracks and Their Songs5 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Halo: Legends - Machines and Might
Starting off our list is the soundtrack for Halo: Legends, a whopper of a soundtrack in terms of remixes; most of the soundtrack consists of songs that had already made an appearance in the Halo franchise before the release of Halo: Legends, which was not a game, but a series of animated episodes explaining the story behind the Spartan program that conceived Master Chief, as well as
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 22 years 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

'Why Are We Even Talking About This?'I get that phrase a lot, that and "over react much?" whenever I bring up ANY issue, be it from a video game, politics, or whatever. There seems to be a lot of people who just don't wanna talk about anything at all, and would much rather these discussions just not exist so they can get on with their lives.'Why Are We Even Talking About This?'2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You'll be unsurprised to learn that I don't agree with that wisdom. In my books, if you don't do anything, nothing is going to happen. If there's an injustice in the world somewhere and you stay silent, that injustice isn't going to fix itself. It will just keep happening. That, my friends, is complacency.
Then of course there are those people who don't believe that the world will ever change, therefor there's no reason to try, and actively try to stop anyone who dares to stand up for something. I can't begin to describe how annoying that mindset is to me. It's almost sadistic in it's very nature, by actively trying to stop people from making the world a better place by being dismissi
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 Codes3 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.

Mostly, :iconslingblade87: :iconvizu: :iconbret13: You already could see examples of these AUs and because I still intend to upload more pics concerning them I thought about to write a little description about them so if you're interested in our characters and stories and are confused this might help a bit.

In this AU Kahan, Aira-ty and Hanabi joined the Empire after the Clone Wars ended. Kahan now is one the most feared man in the Empire, the Grand Inquisitor. He even killed his best friend, Guo-Jia because she refused to join the inquisitors. 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.

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?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
