Final thoughts on Season 4...This is my third attempt the write this journal. When you're trying to explain your feelings for an entire season's worth of content, it can quickly get out of hand and turn into a wall of text- as befell my first two attempts.Final thoughts on Season 4...2 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'm going to do my best to summarize my thoughts on Season 4 in a few specific areas. That being the case, I will not explain every factor or reason that something does or does not work for me. If you disagree with me or feel that I didn't offer enough explanation in a particular area, feel free to ask me about it in the comments, but keep in mind: This is just MY OPINION and should be taken with a grain of salt.
So how does Season 4 rate in relation to Seasons 1-3?
To answer this, we'll have to look at some of the primary components of this season. Why don't we start with-
The Season Long Arc
A season long arc is not really anything new to the series. It was certainly hyped up like it was something special, but looking back, season 2 was
Embroidery Commision InformationAlright, I had a giant thing typed up, but DA froze, and I lost all my typing. So this is going to be short and to the point because I don't feel like typing that all again.Embroidery Commision Information2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Very long story short, I have too many things in my queue because I don't charge enough for them. I only charge actual materials, and only when purchased. Well, I need to cut down on the number of requests and weed out those requests that are wasting my time. About 90% of the time, the requestor doesn't purchase the patch I made just for them, and that is a waste of both my time, and everyone else in queue who really wants something for a con or something. To solve for this, I am going to start charging for commissions of embroidered patches and such. As always, once I actually break even, all proceeds will be donated to the Childs Play charity.
Here are the general prices for a patch that is 100mm long (4") in the longest direction. The price may be different
My Minecraft Testificate InfestationIn Minecraft there are these squidward like villagers called Testificates. In a recent update they were given new abilities such as having babies to repopulating a town based on the number of houses there are. Since the requirement for a "house" is simply a room with a roof and a door, I decided to spend my time building a massive city for the Testificates to populate, using a generated village as a starting point.My Minecraft Testificate Infestation2 years ago in Personal More Like This
After building a number of houses, I began noticing the little children running wild and there becoming quite a LOT of villagers. I undertook a huge task of building a BIG open area underground with a couple doors and lights. Because the area was so big, the Testificates began to... um... OVER populate.
These little buggers reproduced the village so fast that I couldn't keep up and soon they were overflowing out of buildings. Mob attacks couldn't keep up with the rate they were repopulating, and the iron golems that kept spawning (for every 15 villager a new one spawns) made
A Tech Demo is NOT a game in productionAlternate title: "No, Square is not remaking Final Fantasy VII for the PS3".A Tech Demo is NOT a game in production2 years ago in Personal More Like This
If a clip is labeled "Tech Demo", it is NOT a game in production. The purpose of a tech demo is to showcase the processing power and graphical capabilities of a system. A lot of the time, real franchises are used in tech demos - Mario, Zelda, Final Fantasy - but these "snippets" of games are NOT examples of actual games in production. They are "mock" games, or VERY short 'games', created for the sole purpose of making a console ACT like it is running a game. Using known franchises just helps to get your attention.
This isn't to say that a Tech Demo might not later BECOME a game, and there's usually a lot of talk that they will. But honestly, I can't even remember a time when it has. xD And I've been here a while.
Actual games in production are showcased as such, and are NOT called "tech demos". Once you know that, it's easy to tell th

Mal's desireThe man sat there by the cliff, looking at the island below. He could have it all, He can have Everything he ever dreamed of, But he couldn't have her. And that was his only desire. All he ever wanted was her. Her short brown hair, her beautiful Onyx eyes, Her gorgeous smile. Just out of his reach. He dreamed of having everything, but he strived for her. He wanted everything, But he needed her. It kills him to see to see the one he loves be with him, Scott. He hates looking at her only because he can't have her. He hates seeing her, with him, always flirting and talking sweet to each-other. He has his dreams, he has his list of what he wants. And he has his most deepest desire....Courtney.Mal's desire7 months ago in Literature Features More Like This

Personal stance on fanfiction and Mary-Sues: They are ok.

Then you can go all "Screw all this and that, I'll stick some dude who is perfect." Or "I'll fit more characters I've heard from before/love/like fron this franchise/story/game" (aware of it or not)
Again. It's ok. It's your world. Your "creation".

This means you can choose from where the ball comes as well where it exits on your own. Everybody can work on their entries directly now, without waiting. Don't worry about the entering ball etc., I'll sync it later.

It's not the whole "he stole my waifu" nonsense, but rather that as love interest go, he's is exceptionally bland. To illustrate the emptiness that is Flash's persona, let me point you towards the Save Flash Sentry Petition which seeks to have DHX make him a mane-stay of the show. Here are a few supporting quotes:
With the added love interest Twilight Sparkle will be even more relate-able than what she already is.
Just thought that Twilight deserves to be loved just like Princess Cadence.
A main male character with an important standing in the relationship of Twilight Sparkle THE PRINCESS ahem ahem would be a huge jump in the fandom, not to mention the show.
Note that amongst these people, the ones who want him to be on the show, none of them are saying that

I'd especially be pissed if someone else were making money off the artwork I made. But I don't know if that's what's happening.

Photomanip: Working with TexturesWelcome!Photomanip: Working with Textures1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Textures are a critical part of so many photomanipulations, but they're not as easy to use as they appear. Below are some great examples of photomanipulations that, in my opinion, demonstrate excellent use of textures:
The goal of this article . . .
. . . is to serve as a resource for those of us who enjoy having textures be a predominant part of our photomanipulations and mixed media work so we can learn to use textures properly. Texture misuse or abuse can ruin an entire photomanipulation that otherwise might have been good. No matter how good we are at something, we can always grow to be better.

Too SoonIn one of my recent comics I casually mentioned the shooting at The Dark Knight Rises premiere in Colorado. The comic wasn't about the shooting, nor was it making light of the shooting. However, some people weren't able to see past that and felt it was offensive and in poor taste.Too Soon2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am really sorry that my comic offended anyone. It was never meant to trivialize the deaths of the victims of that event, nor was it trying to make fun of them. I was never suggesting or inferring that you should ignore the tragic event, nor trying to be dismissive of the event. I wasn't saying you shouldn't feel empathy, or even sadness over the event. And I especially wasn't trying to paint myself as being uncaring towards the victims.

Fuck You Fresh. Just...Fuck You.You heard us, we know you heard us. You know we loved the Courtney/Gwen friendship, you spent a season putting them back together. Then you do this. You take all the good and development Courtney had, all of it, and just threw it away. Everything she and Gwen went through, just added up to nothing. You screwed over her character, again, just to make it easier for her to get voted off. Why her, exactly? What is it about her, that makes you pull out all the stops to make people not want to like her? Why is it she goes through more humiliating and dehumanizing shit than the villains of the season? Why do you make it no one will stay friends with her, when she had plenty in the first season? Why do you hate her? Why do you make her VA, who loves the character and says she deserves some good to happen in her life, act out all this shit that happens to her. Why? Why I ask you?Fuck You Fresh.

EQG is like Elseworlds. Sure sometimes Batman is a cowboy vampire pirate, but not really.
If you really fall in love with Gay Vampire Pirate Cowboy Batman, its okay. You can write fanfic, draw fanart, cosplay, and tell yourself (and anyone who will listen) that somewhere out in Universe 683492 Apple, Batman is swinging from a bonaventure mizzen with a stetson and a Winchester rifle, drinking the blood of brooding young men with pouty lips and exceptionally smooth legs.
If you hate Vampire Cowboy Robot Mormon Batman you can pretend it never happen and stick to the regular comics series where he's just a time traveling caveman.

Anyone else getting a little tired of hearing this all the time? I know I am.
I didn't notice a lot of brony hate until recently. It must be because of how popular MLP is getting, and how much the fanbase is growing. And this is a subject that has always irked me. What in the hell gives anyone the right to tell someone else that what they like sucks? Who actually feels that entitled, and that righteous to presume that just because they dislike something, it's automatically awful? I don't care HOW much I dislike something, I would never flame it. Especially to specifically taunt those who DO like it.
The MLP:FiM fanbase is actually one of the things I love about the fandom. I can honestly say that I've never been a part of something this monumental, passionate and awesome. But of course there are going to be people that are rude, or people t

Every day at 9:45 we listen to a teacher or the principal say something inspirational and stuff through the speakers in classes, like a morning assembly(at least according to teh interwebz dictionaries).
It always ends with some song, usually relevant to the speech(I'm not sure if it was this time though since I couldn't hear the speech). At 9:50 the class actually begins.
Now this time, like usually, my classmates are derping around, chatting and not paying any attention.
Until the song starts, neither do I.
Huh... this beat seems familiar.
Could it be...
It's the Living Tombstone's Smile remix.
Of course, nobody recognized it(they also thought it was kinda weird), but I was like "whaaaat..."
I'm not sure who picks out the songs, but this time it must have been a brony.
And while it probably doesn't sound like a big deal to you, let me clarify that this is Finland. The internet culture is still large
