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.

Hanuman by molee
There has always been this obsession with the others we share this planet with.
We communicate with them on certain basic levels and yet they inhabit a plane so different from ours: savage, instinctive, a life of sheer survival. At the same time they can do things beyond human abilities: fly through the skies, swim the oceans, apply t
Illustrating Westeros: ASOIAF Artists Speak VITo say that Dejan Delic's vector artworks dazzle the eye is an understatement. Elaborate shapes and swirls, ornate detailing, and resplendent colours offer up a veritable feast for any ASOIAF fan. No character, however major or minor, is excluded from this embellished styling that the artist appears to master so effortlessly. Whilst such rich presentation would be a triumph alone, Dejan's true talent resides in making each character's personality - their flaws and foibles, power and prestige - shine just as brightly.Illustrating Westeros: ASOIAF Artists Speak VI9 months ago in Art Features More Like This

Full House Will Return
Netflix has ordered 13 episodes of a Full House Reboot. Rumors have been circulating about a possible return for the series for some time now, but last night the news that Netflix had ordered a new season of the show was confirmed by Uncle Jesse (John Stamos) on Late Night With Jimmy Kimmel. In case you either lived under a rock in the 90s or merely hadn’t been born yet, Full House

A few months ago, I posted a poll asking my watchers/visitors to show me 3 artists they felt could use more love. They *were* allowed to pick themselves, too. The response was so large that I have to break the feature into two parts, the first part being showcased last issue. Here are the remaining artists. To see the original poll, click here.

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.

So.Let's discuss fandoms.So.4 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
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 Epic1 year 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?

Mental Illness (tw: suicide mention)Hello,Mental Illness (tw: suicide mention)2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
What you are about to read is something of a memoir of my personal experience and struggle with mental illness. I warn you now that it's not a happy story and it's even a bit sad. If you are easily triggered by the mention of suicide, please turn back now. My aim is not to trigger people but to share my story in hopes those who suffer as I have and do to this day can see that their struggles are not singular.
I'm writing this because in truth saying it aloud to anyone I know is very difficult.
To those of you who know me, I assume you all think of me as either a person with a naturally bitchy personality or someone who is happy and accepting of almost everything. Truth is I am both, but more importantly I am both with a catch.
Well over a dozen years ago (maybe longer (17 actually after further research)) I began to experience very deep dark feelings of self hatred and loathing toward myself. Every day I would wake up in pain; physically and mentally, and

Hello, one person! Hope you're having a nice day.
A few things to mention.
One, I'm off to London tomorrow. Just for the day, so I won't be online tomorrow.
Which leads me rather nicely to...
Two, I'm off to Hungary on the first of September, until the third.
Of course I would be out of the country the day the first Doctor Who episode airs.
Of course I would.
It'll be interesting, as I know absolutely no Hungarian.
If anyone does know some basic Hungarian - hello, goodbye, please, thanks, etc. - I'd appreciate a comment.
I have already looked at Google Translate, but it's not always... accurate.
That was a rather serious journal.

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.
