Korra Season Finale, AKA Avatar Ex MachinaOK, I think I've calmed down enough to write a review now. Spoilers ahead!Korra Season Finale, AKA Avatar Ex Machina3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First, let's start off with what worked in the season finale. The animation was just...incredible, the action was exciting and sweeping in its scale, and Zuko's voice was reincarnated as General Iroh the goddamn determinator! which was actually kinda distracting, cause I kept expecting him to be like "I AM SO GOOD AT BEING GOOD!!. Hiroshi Sato showed his true colors as a hate-filled douchenozzle, and Asami showcased her usual class and determination when faced with truly shitty circumstances (on a side note, I've always had a hard time believing that Mr. Sato invented all those airplanes and mechas and stuff, because honestly, when we met him he kinda gave off a Henry Ford vibe, not an "engineering genius" vibe like that crazy eyebrow dude from A:TLA. But whatever, that's a minor point). And of course Naga was a badass...and according to tumblr, there are now people who ship Bolin x Naga. Just...why.

So.Let's discuss fandoms.So.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It annoys me when people hate a fandom because of a generalization. Take, for example, the MLP fandom. "That fandom is full of perverts,". Okay, yes, there is quite a bit of porn in that fandom. Does that mean everyone in the fandom is a sick fuck? No. It simply means that there is porn in the fandom. If somebody chooses to make porn, good for them. They do what they want, just as you do what you want.
What I've come to realize is that you shouldn't be afraid to try out a new fandom or thing because of horror stories and idiots. How much do you guys want to bet that for every idiot fan there is that there are at least 3 honest-to-goodness fans, if not more?
Let me tell you about something (and it's not Homestuck):
Every fandom has porn. Every fandom has slash and crack pairings. Every fandom has overly obsessive fangirls/boys. Every fandom has shitty fan characters (with the obvious exceptions of fandoms like Shelock and Dr. Who, where it's live action and a pers
GodI believe in God. Here's why.God2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I understand the universe and life to be the product of three fundamentals.
Mass, energy, information.
That's nature. More than ever, in our Information Age we should understand how these three interact.
'No God' basically asserts that information arose out of mass and energy.
Just do the math and look at reality. It doesn't seem to add up.
It seems to make more sense that information and energy came first, then mass. Of the three, mass appears to be the most fabricated. Energy organized into division upon division and well packaged boundaries. Remember information is neither energy or mass.
An example of how information interacts with mass is a computer file.
No matter how big the file is, the mass of your computer remains the same.
That file could be transferred to print on paper, a CD or your ipad. The information is identical, but the platforms change. The mass is just the medium that carries the information.

Olympic Fire and IndustryWell; the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympics certainly was .surprising.Olympic Fire and Industry3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As I predicted; there was quite a bit of content that just had me squirming in my chair, thinking "No! NO! Why did you do that?!". The absurdity of the nod to the NHS, for example, and the sudden appearance of various storybook villains, which felt (for lack of a better word) "Disney".
However; the "historical" section of the ceremony's opening half utterly blew me away. An unexpected appearance by Kenneth Branagh, playing Isambard Kingdom Brunel (who essentially WAS the Industrial Revolution), began a spectacular sequence that pretty much summed up what Britain's past was all about; fire and industry.
It was, without a doubt, the highlight of the entire spectacle, and if you either didn't get the chance to catch it or didn't bother to watch it, I urge you to track it down online!
And then there was James Bond .charged with the most difficult seduction of his career.
Yes. That really was her. I couldn'

Filly and the Flood: An EpicSup mah peeps! So, my semester has finally drawn to a close, and boy what an ending to it I had. I know a couple of friends are probably sick of hearing about it by now, but for the sake of my own memories, I am going to tell you all a story while the events are fresh and I can look back on this years from now (if dA still exists by then?) and be all "oh yeah, I remember that. Good times". Also for your own intrigue I suppose. Stick to the very end (or skip to it) if you want comic updates!Filly and the Flood: An Epic10 months ago in Personal More Like This
So the school day went pretty normal this Tuesday. Noon to 8:40 classes so I'm up at my art building all day. We knew it was supposed to rain heavy because it had rained like crazy that morning but we didn't think much of it. All of us with iPhones got Flash Flood warnings popping up on our phones simultaneously around 3:00 or so during class but we just kinda brushed it off. Warnings are just warning right?

~Design Contest! CLOSED!Hey all!~Design Contest! CLOSED!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So it's been a while since I held a contest, and I think it's about time for a new one! However, this time I won't get you to draw any of my characters; instead I'll be getting you to design a new one!
I did this with the design of Serphy, yes, believe it or not (his design has changed dramatically from the original entry however) and I realized how fun the contest was, so I want to hold another one almost the same!
Now I've been thinking a lot about this. And I really, really want a new fursona. As in, entirely new; Taz and Marie won't be sonas anymore; instead I will keep them as characters, because I still do love them. However, I just don't feel like they capture me enough. Sure, all of the elements symbolizing the things I like are there, like favourite colours, accessories and what not. But really, they're just cool designs to me now. They don't mean as much as they used to. And as much as I love Tazzies design a hell of a lot, she just isn't realistic enough. I will mos
The case of George ZimmermanCONTINUES FROM THE HOSTILE ELITESThe case of George Zimmerman2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have talked about how the elites and their mass media have an interest in radicalizing other ethnic and racial groups against white people in general, in order to create the tyrannic order they wish to establish.
To do this, they need to create a general atmosphere where whites are to be blamed by anything and everything wrong in the world, so that they can eventually justify genocide against whites as the "greater good for mankind". To create this atmosphere, the media distorts historical facts, or simply lie knowing that they can suppress the truth. But it does not always work.
The recent case of George Zimmerman is a typical example of this.
In the night of February 26, 2012, in Sanford, Florida, a Neighborhood's Watchman, Peruvian-American George Zimmerman was investigating a series of break-ins and followed a suspicious afri

I feel like I've just accomplished something. It started simply enough... a bunch of female characters from Flaky Pastry... a bunch of male characters from the same... a grid... and for each pairing, imagine what their child would look like. An interesting experiment... Thanks again to arger for her meme base, which is where I began.
I have to say, I didn't know for sure whether I would finish this, back then. When was it again? March 9th 2014! I was so not sure I would finish that I started by posting an unfinished version, then updated it progressively as I advanced...
Just finishing the initial portrait grid took nearly the rest of the month... but hey, when something is fun, you keep going Was that enough? OF COURSE NOT. The next phase took almost a year! Taking each of these portraits an
A little rant about 'art theft'Just a little thing I wanted to discuss, if you don't like rants, then don't read this journal.A little rant about 'art theft'1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Please no harsh comments, I am simply expressing my opinion. |D
So without further adieu
So being on dA, you see a lot of 'art theft' around right? Most of the time you come across things such as stolen designs, traced/ recoloured artwork, copied artwork, etc. Recently however, I've noticed some people going a little over the top with this whole theft thing, so I decided I'd write this to explain what stealing is and what stealing isn't in to me. Now, to put it bluntly,
You CANNOT copyright a poseyou CANNOT copyright a styleReferencing ≠ copying or stealingThe only thing that can be be stolen or copied is the original piece itself.Now, let me explain.
If someone draws something in the same pose as something in someone else's picture, it is NOT stealing unless the picture as a whole has been copied. It does matter how much it resembles the pose in your pi

Contest [EXTENDED DEADLINE - September 30th]This is a very exciting day for me. 1 year ago today, I drew Robin for the first time ever!

Her and the other LC team, I've realized, are a part of me. I've planted myself in each character. They are who I am, and also who I want to become. They've made my life so interesting, and it's all thanks to Robin! 8D
I know this may sound a bit dramatic for a cartoon character, but I love her so much x3 Which leads me to another surprise celebration...
That's right! A contest for our very own, Robin!

Ha ha ha, best headline ever.
Good, you opened this journal. Don't worry, no art theft shenanigans have transpired that triggered this entry. I merely want to share my thoughts on "ripping off" and "originality" with you, both as an artist and novelist who's been on the Internet for 12 years.
This is not a rant - it's strictly comical, but also educational. I'm known for my laid-back, funny and matter-of-fact attitude
I'll give you a different point of view today, because if there is something I despise more than art theft, it's people accusing others of it. Anti art theft ninjas, also known as: people who have likely not had enough science in school. They often have no compelling evidence. They often have wrong evidence (even worse). They often do it on a whim, a feeling. And they rarely do it silently, rampaging publicly instead, thus driving a witch hunt.
