Toho's Godzilla Returning in 2016?!First off, thank you so much everyone for the lovely birthday wishes You guys are too good to me.Toho's Godzilla Returning in 2016?!3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
Secondly, this was a hell of a birthday surprise.
Yesterday, it was formally announced that Toho Studios would be reviving their OWN Godzilla film, set to be released in 2016, with production starting in 2015. Speculation abounds on the project, but the biggest question seems to be the focus on CGI or traditional Suitmation. The article cites the recent adaptation of the manga Parasyte as an example of the "high quality filmmaking" that Japan is currently capable of, but given the franchise's tradition of practical effects, and perhaps an unwillingness to appear inadequate when compared to the hundreds of millions spent of American SFX, we may be seeing something akin to Shinji Higuchi's Attack on Titan adaptation - a combination of sparse miniatures, green screening, props, CGI, and suits. One can only hope.

Socially AwkwardI like the internet, but I acknowledge that it's not perfect. The ability for everyone to be the invisible man allows for a lot of injustice, bullying, harassment, and stalking to take place. This is slowly starting to change, however, thanks to every website gradually forcing people to link to their facebook (or other social media equivalent) accounts. No one wants to lose their personal social outlets as a result of the stuff they were doing elsewhere on the web, if you know what I mean. But... with all good things there are some bad things.Socially Awkward2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I don't know if it's just me, but I'm getting really creeped out how by how much everything is getting connected these days. Nearly every website asks me to post about stuff on facebook or twitter or reddit or whatever. Many websites don't even have personal accounts anymore and just have you link your social media accounts instead. And all of them want to update everyone on your every move 24/7.
And that's what's bothering me. I don't want every
Why Can't Warner Bros Get Their Act Together?Over the weekend at SDCC, Warner Bros announced that the new Man of Steel sequel will also feature Batman. The team-up movie will be followed by a Flash movie and then a Justice League Avenger's style team-up movie. This has a lot of people scratching their heads and wondering what exactly is wrong with DC and Warner Bros respectively. Why Flash and not Wonder Woman? Why add Batman when reports have been told that Christian Bale doesn't want to return and we'll likely get a completely new Batman? Why do a team-up so soon after the first Man of Steel movie instead of fleshing out Superman's modernized world better?Why Can't Warner Bros Get Their Act Together?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Well... to put it bluntly I don't think Warner Bros really gives a shit about comic book themed movies and they're only going through these motions because they feel like they HAVE to rather than because they WANT to. Just take a look at their track record.

First off, Warner Bros has a problem of relying too heavily on the people th

Take your art to higher lever in 4 simple steps!
For people who are serious about drawing and want to make career in art! And for me to stop getting questions on how to practice, or how do you get better
Are you stuck and don't know how to carry on making great art?
You just want to draw better?
If an answer to any of these questions is 'yes' then you might find this interesting...
Since the only thing I ever acknowledged myself good at is getting better I decided to share a couple of tricks.
I truly believe it works in every single case.
It's true. You can get out now or shut up and listen and get better.
(oh and do I need to mention that you need to draw a lot to get better?
I didn't draw a lot and still got better because I followed the steps listed below. But yeah, may not work without drawing a lot...)
Step 1. Honesty.
Be aware of your own limitations. They're usually bigger than you really think, despite what people say. I won't be talking about fals
An Ode to communication -EN- (FR plus bas)An Ode to communication3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Once will not hurt, I will speak about a serious subject (well ... it is kind of the first time ). First, those who think that art is only a way to feed the mind and does not help to fill the belly of the artist may as well stop reading at the end of this sentence.
And so, this article will talk about commission, or how to start with. Well, as I am about to write a pad, I give directly the summary here:COMMUNICATION! . And now I say welcome to the brave if they want to continue reading .
Preliminary : I am talking about private commission, which means there is no official contract. And...I am not an artist
First, a commission is a contract, a business transaction (for private or public purposes). This must never be forgotten. An artist is paid to do a work. The message that follows is seen from a purely factual point of view, supplier-customer relationship (aargh, but where is the imagination, the art in all of this?

It's been announced that Soul Caliber 2 will be gracing the 360 and PS3 later this year. Gotta say, Nintendo sure can't get a break. Everyone knows that the only reason to play Soul Caliber 2 was to play as Link on the gamecube kicking everyone's ass. There's been no announcement of a Wii-U version, and there probably wont' be. It's times like this I have to wonder if there really is a conspiracy against Nintendo from 3rd party developers with how often they abandon or don't even consider their console at all.
Man of Steel 2 and Justice League
Warner Bros's pattern of using the same people they think have the "golden touch" to a franchise is showing again as they've signed on Zack Snyder again for Man of Steel 2. The movie will also feature Batman and will serve as a tie-in to the inevitable Justice League movie.
While this is cool and all... I have to say I'm a little hesitant. Marvel was gung-ho about making an Avengers movie an

Proving your Geek CreedNerds all share a unified experience of being socially ostracized from the rest of other so-called "normal" societal groups. The reasons may vary (not being good at sports, liking a certain sci-fi/fantasy TV show, etc), but the fact that we all were picked upon and marginalized during our most formable years is a major part of the nerd/geek identity. But in recent years nerd culture stopped being it's own niche thing, and has started to seep into mainstream culture. Making nerd culture more accessible has naturally brought with it a new group of people and fans into our sphere... and not everyone is happy about this development.Proving your Geek Creed2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Personally I think it's great that nerd culture has become so widely accepted lately. I can freely have a discussion about my favorite DC or Marvel superheros in public without getting looks of disgust or incredulity because EVERYONE loves Batman and The Avengers. And if I make an obscure joke about Doctor Who, there's a LOT of people who will get it now. But l

Yes, comments are disabled on her YouTube video. But honestly, why does everyone see this as a "problem?" I know it's common wisdom to assume that if you hide comments you're "scared" of receiving criticism or some other bullshit, but think beyond that please.
1) Comments enabled would just allow hate speech and actual sexism to persist because the internet has already determined that everyone hates Anita. No matter how thoughtful or constructive your criticisms might be, YouTube's 500 character limit isn't the best place to give it, plus it would be drowned out by the trolls and haters spewing negativity.
2) Her videos are also meant more as a teaching tool, not a vlog series, and as such are potentially going to be used in classrooms. Probably a good idea to keep nasty comments of homophobia, racism, sexism, etc off of the main source of the video. I think that's backed up beautifully by having her tell parents to preview the

Nintendo's share value over the past five years
Just when we thought one of the huge pioneers of videogames could be in top of the world.....according to some investigations, the recent years weren't that good for nintendo. You need a reason? well, let's call them Wii U and 3DS. Yep, probably you will hate me if you are a huge fan of them, but just telling what I investigated. It's not the first time Nintendo got beaten in the console war (on certain generations). Check for example the Nintendo 64. The Super Nintendo was a huge hit, so at the entrance of the 3D world, Nintendo 64 was popular, I don't doubt it, but Sony just came with the PlayStation and said "hey world, we have something better!", and they weren't lying, Playstation 1 simply destroyed N64, but talking about sales (If you think the N64 was better, then that's your problem, I lik
