Yin's Opinion on Pokemon X and YNote: Kinda rushed through this, so sorry in advance for all the grammatical errors. Will be editing throughout the day.Yin's Opinion on Pokemon X and Y3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been a couple days since Pokemon X and Y were first revealed to the masses. And while many people were upset about the lack of a Ruby/Sapphire remake, reception has been overall positive. Now that the first day hype is behind us and things have more or less settled down, I'd finally like to give my opinion on the matter while also addressing some of the major complaints about the new games.
I'll start off by saying that I'm incredibly stoked. I've been wanting a fully 3D pokemon game since before Pokemon Black and White, and we've finally got it! True, the cute, little sprites will be dearly missed, but like with every popular franchise, it's time to evolve with the times. Pun intended.
Anyway, let's begin with the starters. There are plenty of mixed feeling about these guys, but I didn't find them nearly as disappointing as the Sinnoh trio, who I still f

Folken tells you, in Elvish, 'Usfmb those are some giant breasts. ~Grins~'I was a bit confused on why Folken would compliment my breasts. You see, my character looks like this:
Lynxxe, my Wood Elf Ranger, is kind of a dude. His breasts are not particularly impressive.
I wanted to ask Folken "wtf?", but I'm playing on EQ's roleplay server, so I decided to reply with Lynxxe's personality.
You told Folken, 'You think my breasts are giant? Wow, buddy, Halas would blow your mind.'For those who haven't played EQ, Halas is home to the Barbarians. They look like this:
Clearly, the women there are much better endowed than Lynxxe. It also turned out that Folken was well aware of the fine ladies of Halas.

Caracals, manuls and snow leopards had babies, so it was amazing to watch them - just the weather was bad, cloudy and even rainy, so the light made the photography difficult thanks for lovely meeting, Amrodel!

A New Wind Lifts Storytelling
First imagined as a bedtime tale for his son by Kenneth Grahame in 1908, The Wind in the Willows has remained in the top twenty children’s stories ever since. But things have been getting weird out in the Willows, as the new comic on deviantART, Weirding Willows, will attest to.
Badger, Mole, Ratty and Mr. Toad are back… but they’re joined by Alice, Frankenstein’s Monster, Mowgli, The White Rabbit, Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny as they defend the world from the Wicked Witch of the West, Doctor Moreau, the Mad Hatter, Mister Hyde and the Queen of Hearts (not to mention the flying nightmare monkeys from Wizard of Oz.)

If you make money off of your stolen artwork I will contact the artist and they will deal with you. Specially if it's a gaming company and the previous owner is someone I know. I advised all of you not to use game art. When I said I game and I'm an avid fantasy collector I was not lieing. Also I haven't played every game out their like Skyrim (I know shun the none believer) so again do not enter art that looks like you copied it from in-game content are you will be disqualified.

Nov.21/11It actually sickens me what people will say about you , like you aren't even real . I understand constructive criticism and even flat out rude comments don't bother me , but they do bother other people . On my latest photo , I was called anorexic , ugly , disturbing etc. As well comments like "why don't men look like men anymore?" What has society become that we find it socially acceptable to EVER talk to someone like that . If I didn't have thick skin that would bother me a lot more . But for the people it does bother , you could be taking away an innocent life by talking to someone like that . It just makes me so upset how we treat each other and that it's just going downhill . I have a project for you . Go to school/work tomorrow and go up to one person who could use a compliment and say something nice to them . Little things can make a big difference .Nov.21/114 years ago in Personal More Like This

Batman of ShanghaiYo! It's been waaaaaay too long since I've last updated my journal.Batman of Shanghai3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Figured sharing some Batman action might help break the ice a little.
In case you haven't paid any attention to the shorts that played this
summer over Cartoon Network's DC Nation then you might have missed the
standout work that came from Wolf Smoke Studio.
They're the studio behind Kung Fu Cooking Girls, a short that pretty much brought a new style to the animation table:
This, I believe, is the lead key animator's profile on Pixiv. Just click the image to go there and browse his gallery. It's quality:
Always a beautiful thing to see a new studio doing so well against all odds. They're almost doing the impossible over there in China. Hopefully we'll see them producing more memorable animation. I wish them many years of success and growth.
As far as myself, I've got some animation of my own coming down the pipe. More on that in the future...I'm

"The under realm?" I said.
Slendy nodded and picked up (Y/n)'s sketchbook from the living room and started to search for a page. He finally found it and he glanced at the drawing before handed it to me.
"The tree was the under realm's portal to come here and terrorize towns and cities. They stopped using the portal around the 1900s and hasn't been used ever since." Slendy said.
"Why did they stop using it?" I asked.
"They must have gone out of control with it and demons couldn't stop possessing the living." Slendy said.
I nodded and looked back at the picture. It didn't make any sense of why they need (Y/n).
"But....why her? Why (Y/n)?" I said.
"I don't know child but, everything has a reason and secrets have shocking truths. So someone thinks that (Y/n) could open the portal again and she must have something different from other people." Slendy sai

So I have something fun to give away today.
First of all, the significance of today is that it is the launch day for the lush, thrilling book Origin, by debut author Jessica Khoury. Origin is the first of five Fall 2012 books from Penguin Young Readers dubbed the 2012 Breathless Reads, and I have to say, it's fantastic. You will really want to read this. It's set in the Amazon rainforests (how beautiful and original is that setting? Amazing!), and tells the story of a young girl named Pia who is genetically engineered to be immortal. But

10. Chocolate (2008)
Probably the best martial arts movie to come out of Thailand, although influenced heavily by the Hong Kong martial arts movie scene. This modern classic is well worth a watch. It's about an autistic girl with incredible combat skills who sets out on a mission to ensure that her mother's debts with local gangs are paid back. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VoccbDV5NOI
9. Magnificent Butcher (1979)
Directed by Yuen-woo Ping, this action-comedy (originally titled Lin Shi Rong) was made in an attempt to enjoy the same success that Drunken Master II did. Sammo Hung stars as Lam Sai Wing, a clumsy yet talented fighter. The martial arts featured in this film are old school and an extremely technical merging of two different forms. It did not go on to duplicate the success of Drunken Master II, but it is considered a classic
