My favorite Sushi Chef and his wife, Mr. and Mrs. Nozawa are retiring as of yesterday. I was able to deliver this letter to them last night, along with a bottle of champagne. And I was honored to deliver a last toast, and incredibly beyond belief honored to eat the last piece of sushi served by the restaurant. A new restaurant for the sushi chain called "Sugar Fish" (a partnership between Nozawa, and his sun plus another partner) will replace the original Nozawa which has operated from Ventura Blvd in Studio City for the past 25 years. Sugar Fish at this location is scheduled to open in May.
The New York Times covered the closing of Nozawa, known as "The Sushi Nazi" in the following story; "Pu

Part 2: A very specific problem I have with age-progressed Vanellope fanart.
Can I just say that this guy is amazing, and I wish I had him around all day to talk like Disney characters and keep me in a good mood?
(Thanks to PandaSennin for sharing the video! I love it!)
I have a very specific problem with age-progressed Vanellope artwork. I understand the purpose of it, besides it just being fun to draw and design (I'd imagine), it also makes it so people like me who may or may not like the idea of Ralph x Vanellope can sleep easier at night. I get it. I totally do.
But every time I see an image of age-progressed Vanellope, all I think of is a cartoon version of Sarah Silverman and things get fucking weird, OK.
Because I may or may not have a crush on Sarah Silverman.
And there's my dumb journal for the day! Now if you'll excuse me, I just enrolle

RIPOne of my best online friends, rovdjuur, has taken her life today.RIP1 year ago in Personal More Like This
It's so awful that people had driven her so over the edge that she'd take her life at such a young age. She had so much to live for.
I also have a feeling the same people that drove her over the edge (since we've discussed these people before, when she was still alive) were the same people I had all of the drama with over my April Fools joke and things that happened in the past.
Why would people do this. Why would people hurt someone so fucking much that the person would take their own life. How do these people not feel ashamed...
I love you, Cat, and you will be missed.
Rest in Peace
Pocket City ExplainedHello its Ryce Cooker here with something a bit unusual. I usually don't like to explain my artworks because I like to see how people sees them, I believe if I have to explain what is happening in my artwork, then I didn't do a good job, I would prefer if they just see it and gets it. But once in a while I like to break tradition LOL! So this time I feel like explaining the many things that are not too obvious in my latest doodle piece. Pocket City! Main reason being I added a few trivias and homages in there thats really only relevant to me but you might also be interested in (Or bored as hell after reading).

Should Today's Technologies Inspire?
We got to interview a visionary futurist with an eye on technology about what would inspire today's comic book writers to create our next superheroes with knowledge of real technological and scientific advancement.

**SON OF A MOTHER TRUCKING VIRUS**Sorry guys but this is gonna be a rant. So I don't know if you heard, but this has been on the news and it's huge. Have you heard of the MASSIVE VIRUS ATTACK that was released last Monday? Well here is Yahoo's official article http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/lookout/blackout-monday-dns-changer-know-155840354.html You don't need to read it.**SON OF A MOTHER TRUCKING VIRUS**3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Basically it says that the Government's huge protection plan expired this past monday. This protection protected every computer in the US of this huge virus. This virus freezes your computer so you can't turn it on or do anything. You want to know who got this virus?? Thanks goodness I didn't get the virus.... BUT MY MOM GOT IT!!
Well thanks to the mother trucking virus creators, we have to pay freaking $200 to get it removed. That is such a waste of money. I rather do other with that money and now we have to spend it on a freaking virus.
Goodness I hate whoever creates viruses.. How could people do that to other people... They must have no heart... They

It doesn't feel that long - but in a few more years I'll have been on this site for half my life. Sheesh!
I've improved so much having an audience to show work to, even if the point of the work wasn't an audience - just having a platform from which I could do anything at all has been really amazing for me over the years.
And then... PMD-e... which has been a really tremendous learning experience for me (and others!), in so many ways. I don't want to turn this journal sappy or anything, but I've been lucky to have met so many people and have gotten the chance to help create a community with its ups and downs.
And... speaking of such...
I'll be making a journal later about the state of PMD-e right now - I know the updates have been sporadic, and this has been for a few reasons. I've been thinking about how to word things for a few days now, and I don't think I've quite gotten it yet.
Anyway, for those of you who've been around since

It ended up being 2 and a half minutes long. lol.
It might be online on YouTube this monday. (hopefully)
So yea, keep an eye out for it!

Concerning HobbitsIn a little over an hour I will be heading off for my first 'real' holiday.

It's my first time on a plane so I'll probably be spending the whole trip going, "OH MY GOD. LOOK AT US. WE'RE FLYING." But seriously, I think people take for granted the fact that was can fly. That in a mere 3 and a bit hours I can be in a country across the sea. It takes me three hours to get to Uni and back every day.
I call it my first real holiday, as it's my first time out of my state, and obviously my first time out of my country. That alone is such a big deal for me. It's going to be weird not being in Australia for Australia Day, or being the one with the funny accent for a change. Then there's the fact that I've wanted to visit NZ for most of my life, and more so since it became the home of my beloved Middle Earth.
What this means is that there'
