That's when you run into it.
A black monolithic square box that almost takes up all your monitor space when you look at it. It's huge, unappealing, artistic only to a hardcore Andy Warhol, and it has a message it want to share with you. A "cry" for help that screams like a teenager who watches too much angsty anime and listens to too much Linkin Park and Evanescence. You wonder who the hell made this ugly travesty and how it got to the TOP of the most popular in the last eight hours category.
You click to the artist's gallery: THEY'RE EVERYWHERE, And all of them have immense amounts of views and likes. Comments are not allowed on any of them. Those who speak their mind and dislike this account are blocked.

Shine a Light
Light means so many things in our lives beyond mere illumination.
Cinematographers call the hour just before the sun sets “the magic hour.” Movie producers and directors schedule the shooting of love scenes and other important moments in their script to take advantage of the powerful effect that “magic hour” sunlight subliminally exerts on our psyches. The Dutch master painters of the 17th century were expert in focusing the eye on the “story

Elements of a Good StoryThanks so much to everyone who's joined the group so far and all of you who participated in this week's discussion! There were some great insights into what makes a good story.Elements of a Good Story3 months ago in Personal More Like This
I listed off everything mentioned, and it's really cool to see how many of you said the same things. To me, this suggests good storytelling isn't as subjective as it universal. Here's a chart I made of everything brought up and how many of you mentioned the same thing:
Almost all of you said a good story makes you feel something. I've always considered this to be the most important aspect of storytelling, and so have many other storytellers. Teresa Strong-Wilson said, "Language is felt before being understood; it is also felt in order to be understood." I think the same can be said of stories.
Aristotle proposed that, in order to pursued someone, you need to appeal to them on three levels:

What it means: A feeling of longing associated with displacement, but not necessarily displacement from one’s original home. An intense yearning to be somewhere you are not. Hiraeth also expresses a sort of ache or longing for something of the past, somewhat similar to the notion of "golden" or "good old days," but with more ancient connotations.
Why it needs to be a thing in English: I speak as someone from a country

Actor Robin Williams Is Dead at 63 of Suspected Suicide

The Oscar-winning actor and comedian Robin Williams died this morning in California. He was 63.
"At this time, the Sheriff’s Office Coroner Division suspects the death to be a suicide due to asphyxia, but a comprehensive investigation must be completed before a final determination is made," the Marin County Coroner said in a statement.

Phil Fish Hacked
Phil Fish, the creator of FEZ, is pretty much universally hated by people online. Recently he spoke out in favor of Zoe Quinn, creator of Depression Quest, who was herself under fire from internet thought police for “corrupting” games journalism’s integrity by sleeping with journalists to get favorable reviews of her game (allegations which later proved to be untrue). Because he spoke out in favor of Zoe Quinn, Phil found himself under a massive internet attack, wherein hackers compromised his SSI, passwords, Polytron's PayPal account, and other sensitive data.
In the wake of the attack, Phil Fish is now selling off the rights to FEZ and to Polytron. He left with this rather depressing twitter message: “I

Brother Against Brother - House of Cards meets Game of Thrones meets Jericho meets The Walking Dead (without the zombies). An increasingly tyrannical United States government, under a power-hungry, Machiavellian president (a Frank Underwood expy) goes too far and does something intolerable (Canceling elections? Arresting opposition? I dunno). A popular movement, from the left, right and center, calls for the President's impeachment. Things escalate, and a protest in Washington turns into a bloodbath. The United States is plunged into a new civil war, with many military and police defecting to the rebels' side. And of course, while the rebels are united against the government, they have very different views on what should emerge from the rubble.

So an average teenage girl FINALLY gets to go to a meet-and-greet with her favorite rock band. Before she meets them, she thinks that they'll become the best friends, they'll go backstage, talk for hours, etc. Turns out, the meet and greet only lasted two minutes, and she was so excited, she couldn't even ask them the questions she's been planning all along.
Disappointed after the show, she follows the band's RV, because they're driving on the same route she uses to go home. Then guess what.
Well, more like a zombie crosses the road, causing the RV and her car to crash. With only the fangirl and the band surviving, they need to find a way through the forest and through this apocalypse and get back to the studio to seek help.
Along the way, the fangirl realizes that the band isn't all they appear to b
The Climate Denialist Plea for InactionThe Climate Denialist Plea for Inaction5 months ago in Personal More Like This
As they tend to do from time to time in an effort to distract from the climate science consensus, a group of scientists who are also climate "skeptics" have published an opinion-editorial (op-ed), trying to make the case against taking action to address climate change. As usual, the article is little more than a regurgitation of a number of climate myths we have debunked at Skeptical Science.
The signatories of this newest letter are also worth noting for their lack of noteworthiness. Although the climate denialist blogs have labeled them "luminaries" and "
Tracing gets you nowhere.I remember when I was a kid, I'd record Saturday morning cartoons, play them back, pause the image, put a piece of paper over the screen and trace my favourite characters.Tracing gets you nowhere.9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Now this was really hard in the VHS era, because a paused image on a VHS is usually either broken up or shakes so much that you’ll have some kind of fit if you look at it too long, it depended on how cheap and sh*tty your machine was.
But I worked really hard at it, man. I spent ages getting the linework just right, I was so careful, and when I peeled the page from the static cling of the bulbous, cathode ray tube screen, the character looked exactly right on the page. And you wanna know what I took away from that endeavour? What all that effort taught me?
Jack f**king sh*t.
You don’t pick up or develop any skills by tracing. You don’t devise and perfect your own methods by tracing. You do not progress as an artist by tracing. All you get is a loss of credibility, especially in this day and age, bec

With the news that the west Antarctic ice sheet is not only melting, but that melting is unstoppable, the climate change deniers are out in full force on the forums and the comment threads, wheeling out tired lie after tired lie, and are bellowing louder and slowing progress even more in the halls of legislation.

SCAD UniversityI think I made a journal about this when I first joined dA, but I can't remember.SCAD University1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Anyways, during Sophomore year, I found out about SCAD university. Savannah College of Art and Design, and they specialize in creative careers. But back in sophomore year, I wasn't even thinking about moving out.
Since there aren't many universities here that offer creative studies, it looks like moving is back in consideration. They have universities in Savannah, Hong Kong and France, but they also have one here in Georgia, which is a state away. Tuition is 34,000, which is really not bad, and MUCH cheaper than Full Sail. And they offer the same courses. Just out of state.
I know a few friends who are considering going there, but that's about it. Considering. And so am I. So I'm not sure who I'll be with if I actually go.
18,000 saved up. Subtracted from 34,000, and I'm left with 16,000. With federal student aid taking away 1,000, I'm left with 15,000. I'm not sure about scholarships, but if I MUST u

It just made me so sad.
I'm for Feminism. Women shouldn't be treated like crap. We are as strong and capable as men are. We are human being and should be treated as such. That being said I am often disgusted by the way the current Feminist movement handles some things, and this points out some of my problems with it. (This isn't hating on tumblr user unsocial-networked at all. She's not at fault here at all.)
Feminists tend to rage against society's unattainable standards for women, but look at what you are doing to yourselves. What unsocial-networked describes in this post is that it's making her feel like crap. Some people, men and women, are unorganized, awkward, and feel weak. In
