Okay, then... Let's get started.
When Cyrus was found by the builders, I kind of squealed. I was happy to know he was okay!
Then they brought Pixal back! Using Zane's Power Source!
And when they broke the news about Cole being Nya's true match...
AND JAY FLIPPED OUT.
And then the fight brought the worst out of the boys.
That macho battle...
Then Jay's parents ditch. Like, okay.
And then it seemed like Cole & Jay made up...
... but then it was all a lie.
But then Tech Wu came in & Kai didn't have the heart to hurt him.
Then the stupid guy fight continues...
All those adorable PixZane moments~
And then MORE stupid bro fights...

I've been accepted into Sheridan's animation program!
I've just found out a week ago, but I'm going to be a student at Canada's premiere Animation school! I'm so excited, I didn't think I would get in (apparently this year had the most "perfect" scores; 12! So the competition to get in was strong!) But I've made it, so it's all good! I'm not sure of my actual score at this moment, but it was a firm offer of admission, so that's all that matters.

Warning Capslock and cussing ahoy!
There's nothing quite like a nice stroll on a cool, crisp morning with a NOPE, GOTTA PLAY SKYRIM.
I have to work, bills to pay, walk the dogs, go shopping, and I also need to NOPE, GOTTA PLAY SKYRIM.
Haven't eaten all day, I should probably have some NOPE, GOTTA PLAY SKYRIM.
FYI: If you walk past a flowery bush IRL and your first instinct is "Harvest mountain flowers," you've been playing too much Skyrim.
Approximately half of Skyrim's populace used to be an adventurer just like me, but then they all took arrows to the knee . which is funny because I've taken multiple arrows to the head and that hasn't stopped me from running tits first into one adventure after another and another . And another . AND ANOTHER OMHFG THERE ARE SO MANY !@#$%^&*ing SIDE QUESTS.

dA still alienates gay community with prejudiceSince the beginning of this site, dA has been repeatedly criticized for its homophobic approach to art. Homosexual couples (specifically male-male representations because lesbians are hawt, guys) in particular have been repeatedly targeted by the site's admins for deletion, an occurrence so pervasive that one deviant, reapersun was able to hold an entire contest to attempt to illustrate the line of discrimination.dA still alienates gay community with prejudice4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
You might say, "the site is simply prudish!" Not true. They have an entire section labeled "fetish". Pictures of women having intercourse with tentacle monsters? De rigeur. Buick sized breasts oozing buckets of milk? Fine. But two consenting adults (especially male adults) touching? Kissing? My GOD, what filth!
The newest and most blatant example of dA's skewed treatment of gay people is a new stamp by prosaix

Ookami (A deified wolf in Japanese Mythology)There are some animals and creatures in Japanese mythology. Almost of them are servants of gods. For example, foxes are servants of Inari-shin, who is a god of harvest.Ookami (A deified wolf in Japanese Mythology)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Only two creatures took part in a category of gods -that is to say, wolves and snakes-.
Chichibu had been the most active area of a faith to wolves.
Long time ago, Yamato-Takeru-no-Mikoto [日本武尊] (who is one of heroes in Japanese mythology) went on an expedition. But when he went through in the deep forest of Chichibu [秩父] mountains, it was in a dense fog and he lost his way. Then, one white wolf appeared in front of him. The white wolf walked a head of him and guided to the outside of the forest. He escaped the deep forest at last.
Yamato-Takeru-no-Mikoto greatly appreciated a help of a white wolf. He constructed a shrine. The wolf which helped him was joined in a group of gods. The god of the wolf was called "Ooguchi-no-Magami [大口真神]". (It means "a g

Pokemon X and Y - The shiny fishing methodHey guys!Pokemon X and Y - The shiny fishing method6 months ago in Personal More Like This
So, some of you may be wondering why if all sudden everyone is finding shiny fish pokemon but don't tell you how. Well, here you go.
Recently a new way of finding shinies easily and fast was discovered. To be said right from the start, this only works with Pokémon that you can fish for in X and Y.
The method started to circulate yesterday due to the NPC that hands you the Super Rod saying:
"This is just a rumor, but word is that you can catch some rare Pokemon through consecutive fishing!"
It is very likely the rare Pokémon he is talking about are in fact shiny Pokémon. The method below has been discovered and tested by many. I myself have tried it and obtained shiny Relicanth, Dragalge and Poliwhirl with it, two of my friends got shiny Seadras and my boyfriend got shiny Clauncher.
What to do:
- Find a Pokémon with Suction Cups or Sticky Hold for their ability. In gen 6, Octillery and Inkay are easily obtainable Pokémon that can have Suction Cups. Gulpin and Tru

In order to maintain my sanity, I'll be disabling comments in my new entries from now on. It makes me sad to do this, but I've been ending up in the front DA page lately (which is awesome!), which seems to be making me a target for bitchy, uninformed, opinionated jealous people (which is decidedly less awesome).
I'm sad because I've come to know so many of you folks really well (Treyos, Smokewithoutmirrors, ChibiButterfly...just to name a few) and I really DO look forward to hearing from you guys. I'll miss your comments and your input and your wisdom.
But this other factor...it bothers me too much. I'll admit it; I'm thin skinned when it comes to my art. I'm proud of my work and protective of it, and when that shines through in my entries (I know it sounds like arrogance, but whatever),
The Tree as Beautiful MachineWhile searching deviantART for images for the Earth Day article, I became intrigued with how trees have become not only such a central focus of our current environmental concerns, but also how they play such a central role in our art, whether as background or actual subject matter. There are so many Enchanted Forests on deviantART that it made me wonder if trees, so mundane and taken for granted yet at the same time so vital to life on earth and so steeped in myth, have always been the revered subjects of the world’s artists.The Tree as Beautiful Machine2 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This

A Kai Dog's photo which I submitted the last week got good reviews. So, I wrote about Japanese Dogs in the new journal.
Japanese Dogs are traditional hunting dogs in Japan. They are categorized in Spitz type as Spitz, Husky, Samoyed, Malamute and so on.
There are 6 type of Japanese Dogs now. Akita [ 秋田 ], Kishu [ 紀州 ], Shikoku [ 四国 ], Hokkaido [ 北海道 ], Kai [ 甲斐 ] and Shiba [ 柴 ]. The biggest dogs are Akita, the smallest dogs are Shiba. Size of Kishu, Shikoku, Hokkaido and Kai are the middle of Akita and Shiba. They are originally hunting dogs which adopted themselves to Japanese climate and geography.
Japan has conspicuous four seasons. Japanese summer is not only hot but also very humid as Tropical Zones. Therefore they Japanese Dogs are "heat summer proof" dogs more than other dogs of Spitz type.
They have a tough body and well-developed muscles, especially four legs grow well, bec

Poor wolves are ill :( Photos (but with warning)Hi,Poor wolves are ill :( Photos (but with warning)10 months ago in Personal More Like This
today it was the worst ZOO visit ever.
This spring I noticed that the molting (process of loosing the thick winter fur and having just much shorter summer fur) of the wolves is very different from the molting I witnessed during the last years. The wolves looked ill, like having scabs on their faces and bodies.
It made me nervous, so I was curious about my today's visit. I planned to shoot baby wolves.
What I saw shocked me.
ALL the pack members seem to have some skin problems. Less or more serious, all of them are effected, showing symptoms. I do not know if it is mange or so, but it looks horrible. Two wolves (and I am VERY afraid the most ill one is Atila) have almost bare bodies, they lost almost all the fur. All of them keep scratching. What a horrible, horrible sight, I almost cried there even the tiny puppy is ill, it was born just few weeks ago, but I see its legs show the signs of the same illness.
I hope the vets will find the cure.
I am soooo down since I saw them toda

If you'll allow it, a small history lesson:
In 1967, the Supreme Court ruled unanimously in Loving v. Virginia that Virginia's "Racial Integrity Act of 1924" was unconstitutional. The decision overturned all previous rulings supporting the ban on interracial marriages and all states were forced to legally recognize mixed-race marriages.
On August 4, 2011 Chief District Court Judge Vaughn Walker ruled to strike down California's Proposition 8, which amended California's State constitution to define marriage as between one man and one woman. Judge Walker cited the Due Process and Equal Protection clauses in his ruling. More im
