Top 13 Sesame Street Scares (#7)#7: The Count Sleeps OverTop 13 Sesame Street Scares (#7)9 months ago in Personal More Like This
So one night, the Count decides to sleeps over with Bert and Ernie—and no, they’re not sleeping over for “that” reason! Get your mind out of the gutter!
Bert lets the Count sleep in his bed while he sleeps in the living room, allowing the Count to sleep with Ernie. (In separate beds! I said get your mind out of the gutter!)
Anyway, the Count has a hard time sleeping, so Ernie suggests that he counts sheep. The Count does exactly that—and being the Count, he can’t stop counting sheep.
His counting, laughter, and sudden bursts of thunder and lightning keep poor Ernie up all night, making it so that neither of them do much sleeping. (Because the Count is keeping him awake with his counting. Sheesh! What is your deal?!)
That skit didn’t seem t

Since I get a lot of mails and comments that asks similar things, I have tried to put together a FAQ, since I am having a hard time replying to every one of them individually.
One thing you must understand though, is that art is different for everyone, so some of the things you will have to learn and discover for yourself. Unfortunately I do not have all the answers for you.

#5: Kali Ma scene from Temple of Doom
Admit it! As soon as I mentioned Indiana Jones, this was the scene that came to your mind. How can it not be? It's the most infamous scene from the entire series.
You know it. I know it. Everyone else knows it. This is the scariest Indiana Jones scene ever.
We all know it by heart. Literally!
Indy and friends are sent to investigate the case of several missing children from an Indian village when they stumble across a cult for the Indian goddess of Death, Kali, which sacrifices human beings in the most gruesome way imaginable: by tearing their still-beating hearts out of their chests.

I was working professionally when I didn't know what I was doing. I acted like an extrovert when I was an introvert. I acted like a businessperson when I hadn't made a dime.

EMPOWERED cosplay, now with painted-on latex!At the Toronto Comic Arts Festival last weekend, ace photographer (and karaoke-er*) Paul Hillier was kind enough to drop off some prints of a seriously badass Empowered cosplay shoot he had arranged. He took the concept of Emp cosplay to a whole 'nother level, via an exciting new frontier in costuming: painted-on latex! Not only is this arguably the ideal cosplay medium to approximate Emp's unearthly supersuit, it's definitely the best medium to depict the tearing of the suit's membrane (as seen in a photo emulating an Empowered cover, complete with logo).EMPOWERED cosplay, now with painted-on latex!3 years ago in Personal More Like This

RIP, Lemmy's LandAs my fellow Koopa fans doubtless well know, the marvelous Koopa fansite Lemmy's Land hasn't updated in over a year. While that may seem like a long time to wait before finally admitting that it's dead, well... it's not been a thing I've really wanted to admit.RIP, Lemmy's Land2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Lemmy's Land has been a Mario fan institution since 1998, and it must have helped spur the resurgence in popularity of the Koopalings in the mid 2000s. It was a massive site, updated weekly with religious adherence during its prime, filled with fan content ranging from preposterous short fanfiction "scribbles" to artwork and music files. And the entire operation was run by one Koopa, the titular Lemmy.
But Lemmy, to me, was more than a fastidious webmaster... he always seemed to have a soft spot for new artists and authors, and I think that he gave me a chance to prove myself back when my own drawing skills were tenuous at best. Had he not accepted my offer to volunteer as a Caption Assistant ten years ag
Console Generation RantThis generation of video game consoles has been completely off my radar. Even my fanboy lust of all things Nintendo can’t make me save up enough money to buy a Wii-U.

I mean, when the Ps3 launched it required a day one patch to play Blu-Ray movies, that’s not so bad though since you could still play games. But the Xbox One comes out and you literally can’t do anything with it if you don’t have an internet connection. For how much you paid for that device that’s pretty shitty.

Scary For Kids
As with last year, I’ll be sharing a few selections from the infamous tome of horror stories, Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark.
In this first story, simply titled “The Thing”, two curious young boys stumble across a zombie lurking within a corn field.
Think I gave away too much of the story? Oh, believe me, I haven’t. That’s only the first part. The rest of it is far more horrifying.
There were two young boys named Trevor and Will. They spent most of their summer vacation hanging around town, looking for things to do.
One hot August night, the boys were sitting on a fence by the main road. There was a cornfield just across the road. Suddenly, Trevor spotted something in the field. In the darkness, it was difficult to make out, but he thought it looked like some kind of weird animal.

Another childhood tale of fright from Scary Stories. This one about a gravedigger who steals two silver dollars from the corpse of an old woman, only to be haunted by her spirit later that night.
Once again, it's one of those ghost stories best told to another, with the narrator screaming at the end.
If this story sounds familiar, it should, especially if you're a brony. The My Little Pony episode "Sleepless in Ponyville" featured a similar tale about an old mare with a missing rusty horseshoe.There was a lonely old woman who got sick and eventually died. She had no family and no close friends, so her neighbors got together and dug a grave for her. They asked the undertaker to make a coffin for her and they dressed her up in her best clothes and laid her body out in her living room.
When the old woman died, her eyes were wide open, staring at e
Why I disagree with Kony 2012Many on here and on Facebook have messaged me about the Kony 2012 movie. It's very well-made and definitely worth a watch if you haven't seen it yet.Why I disagree with Kony 20123 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Kony is a terrible criminal, and I am very much for bringing him to justice. However, I do not share the enthusiasm of the overwhelming majority about the movie and the proposals put forward by the makers. Here are ten criticisms I came up with, in no particular order.
1) If something is being hyped up all around you, this is a strong signal to think for yourself. Be especially suspicious when someone wants to use FORCE to do GOOD. Paradoxically, if you REALLY care - don't fall for appeal to emotion, as is being done here. Consider the implications and outcomes, rather than the motives. Don't let the public opinion shape yours, let the facts do so. Don't let one issue overshadow other issues which could be more important. Don't be afraid to disagree with the majority. Truth i
Get Better At Drawing (Without Drawing Anything)Art is a process.Get Better At Drawing (Without Drawing Anything)4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Like that of the scientific method and philosophical alchemy, art can be refined and improved through process. From observation, to experiment, to reflection and conclusion, art is improved by the steps we make towards change, not solidification and stagnation. Much of the advice out there for drawing is simply practice or avoid distractions. This advice is good, but there is more to creation than just throwing yourself mindlessly into a task and avoiding bad habits along the way. Good habits and knowledge will help to excel your learning process faster, and from that, improve faster and more effectively.
Look at it
As an artist, observation is key. The skill we develop is not just seeing, but interpreting what we see, remembering what we have seen and recording it in the form of visual art. This is a skill that, aside from blindness or vision degradation, you will be able to improve during your entire life. The way of seeing from an art

On March 1, 2012 the Nevada DMV issued the first license for a Google Driverless Car. The idea behind this innovation is that one day soon new technology will drive cars safer and more skillfully than humans, thus saving lives and billions of dollars in car crashes. How well this idea catches on is a bit questionable, given the powerful “romance” of driving one’s car, but it’s certainly an indicator of things to come in the daily intersection of human and artificial intelligence and mobility. There have always been those who have dreamed of stepping into a mechanical exo-skeletal-type “suit” and letting the engineering do the work, insta
