Dear President Obama,Dear Mr. President,
In case you didn't notice, this whole Iranian embassy plot might throw us into... oh, I don't know... something small along the lines of WORLD WAR THREE!!! This is one scary situation. A war with Iran? Now? Holy crap! This isn't good. We have the nuclear capacity to destroy the world 5 times over... and than another just for kicks. Do you honestly believe any of the threats are bluffs? A direct military response is the absolute worst situation. Do you remember what they tell you in health class? They tell you to use a condom before you stick it in. It's the same thing with this, but I'm pretty sure we don't have any condoms.
None of us want to see another 9/11, or another long campaign. As for a matter of fact, that's part of why we elected you. The last thing we need is a little multi-billion dollar adventure in the middle east. None of us want to mess with Russia, or China, or any other nation tied to Iran. Even if we win, we wouldn't; whoever won would be whoever

Are you REALLY Ian Flynn? The comic guy?
Yes I am. You can check out my website and my body of work at www.BumbleKing.com
Awesome! I love your art in the comics!
That's flattering - but I don't do the art. I'm the writer. I compose the manuscripts the art team uses to produce the book. I've done concept art, though. Some you can find here on dA, some you can find in the graphic novel collections. I'm a decent doodler, but I leave the REAL art to the skilled professionals.
Read my fan-fic! Look at my fan-art! Use my fan-concept!
No, nope, nuh-uh. This would open me up to allegations of intellectual theft. There's a lot of really creative fans out there, and they produce a lot of cool stuff.
Pageviews and Popularity - The real deal.Be an artist, not a number.Pageviews and Popularity - The real deal.6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Many members of the artistic community here on DeviantART were shocked by a recent popular news article about how to become popular. I won't link to it because that would be foolish - but the mentality behind it was pageview orientated and made a 'mockery of all that deviantART stands for'.
So - to spell it out for everyone on DeviantART whos ever wanted more pageviews, I went to my nearest and dearest ' popular' artists and asked them what they thought about popularity and statistics.
The answer? They don't give a damn...
Your page views won't help you progress as an artist, and that is what you should be on this art site for.. the art..
Page views can be a feel good thing - I won't deny that - but it does not reflect how much your actual art is viewed, how sucessful or popular your art itself is, or even how popular you are.
Using cheap tactics as described in the article it is easy to generate high numbers of page views even with an EMPTY gallery.
Skyrim Mod List -Updated with LINKS-So last time I wrote about Skyrim Mods, I asked for people’s suggestions on what mods to use. I thought it might be fun to list a bunch of the mods I have and provide links to where you can download them all. I’m fairly certain that all the mods I have listed here are also available on Steam if that happens to be your method of playing Skyrim.Skyrim Mod List -Updated with LINKS-1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Guard Dialogue Overhaul http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/23390/?
Updates the Guard dialogue to be much more diverse and has them comment more specifically on your accomplishments in the game rather than repeating the same dialogue over and over again.
Flyable Broomsticks http://www.nexusmods.com/skyrim/mods/19069
Adds a crafting recipe and a levitation spell that makes brooms flyable. Be a witch!
Adds footprints for when you run in snow or ash. Makes animals and dragons leave prints as well. Good for hunter immersion.

Someone that's more like a sister than a friend

A Couple of ExplanationsIn this tumultuous time of the comics, passions are running high. That's a good thing. I didn't set out to violently shake-up the status quo thinking it'd go over perfectly fine with everyone. I set out to upset and to unnerve, and thus far it's looks like I've succeeded. (Some folks out there are already guessing in the ballpark of my long-term plans, but you can only fool some of the people some of the time)A Couple of Explanations3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As upset as some readers are - and rightfully so - I will not tolerate a total lack of class. I've had folks contact me individually who've voiced their concern, even their anger, in clear terms without resorting to foul language and physical threats. Anger does not excuse such childishness. So if you can't make your point without without devolving into profanity, I'm hiding your comment. I'll read, it I'll keep it accessible so your point will remain, but I'm not cluttering up my front page w

The Reputation of Bronies- EDIT- Derpy Hooves[EDIT]The Reputation of Bronies- EDIT- Derpy Hooves3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I made this blog originally BEFORE I had caught wind of the whole Derpy fiasco that's been going on. I'm a bit slow like that, with my lack of internet. But what I've seen this morning has caused me to NEED to bring this issue up with all of you, so please read this and take it as seriously as you took the previous one.
First of all, what I would like to point out from the previous post is that a lot of people were surprised, some even disbelieving, that bronies were trolling each other. Well, I'm here to show you some of the nasties that I've seen. I will only show you a link to ONE case, but know there are many more.
Someone showed me a deviant who had been brutally harassed by FiM bronies, because she was friends with an animator of the G1 MLP show. This animator was also brutally assaulted verbally, with threats on his life from hysterical bronies who hate the G1 show. Now, obviously, not everyone is like this. But there is enough bronies out there who are "FiM purist" enoug
Sonic the Hedgehog is a Death TrapI've tried reasoning, I've tried ignoring, I've tried accepting, but in the end it pointless. People have been driven MAD to understand how these cannibals function. That's right, these so called, Sonic Fans, are nothing more then just an army of creatures fused together with the minds of insane cannibals and the actions of Nazi's. Ever since Sonic had his upgrade in design in Sonic Adventure and so on, the War Zone (Translation: The Sonic Fanbase) has always lunged in for the kill and murdering anyone who has an opinion, or for their case kill them for using an unholy relic.Sonic the Hedgehog is a Death Trap2 years ago in Personal More Like This
When SEGA created this little shithead of a hedgehog, they had no idea on how many people would be killed over it. It's always been the same ol story: Beat Robotnik, save the world and everyone stays alive, the end, rinse and repeat. Then they tried to expanded on the games which led to some conflicts between the Classic and Modern, nowadays it's everyman for themselves as their charging at people and r
My DeviantART StoryHi there ! Because many people do it, I will do mine for the fun.My DeviantART Story9 months ago in Art Features More Like This
It's been 5 years I'm on DeviantART now. And some of you know this character Of course, that's my internet persona.
I was enjoying drawing some fanarts of what I like the most such like Sailor Moon, Nintendo, Tom & Jerry and others cartoons. When I discovered deviantART during 2008, I was researching some Mario fanart to inspire me and makes my own. And I found some cool artists such as :iconnintendrawer: and her Luigi and Daisy comic, or even :iconYoshiMan1118: and his famous strips of Daisy in silly situations. But that's two example artists which gave me the motivation to join DeviantArt in April 2009 to draw and share. The very first week, people here saw one of my top deviations inspired by :iconnintendrawer: who approved herself my work.
But things weren't only bright and I have experienced some moments quite tough during the fir

So what if there were knockoff pony toys before MLP came along? Young girls like horses. It's a natural conclusion to draw to make horses and ponies that are cutesy and brightly colored
