I've finished my final writeup!
And my friend did a petition that covers my points:
Are you here about SOPA 2014? I'm still working on my write-up of the latest SOPA Scare. Most of the research is done, and I am in editing/petition hunting now. If you'd like to see what I have, and maybe even help, the link is here:
Please do not use the article you're looking at now, "The Real Story on SOPA 2013/Section 201," to figure out the current situation. It has NOTHING to do with the two things that have people crying that SOPA is back this time.
EDIT 3/12/2014: This article is OUTDATED and does not apply to the latest "SOPA scare." I'm hoping to write up a more detailed article on the new SOPA, but last I checked research was light, and these things take time.

Battle of the Brands - The Polymer Clay ConundrumMany of us start with one brand of polymer clay to start, and as we embrace the clays pros, we often eventually get used to the cons as well and work our way around them. But what if you knew which brand was right for you before you even touched the clay? Each polymer clay brand has many characteristics that make it distinct from other brands, so if you are looking for a specific trait in your clay, you might want to read on. Who knows, you might find something better then what you are working with right now.Battle of the Brands - The Polymer Clay Conundrum6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I have personally tried every popular brand of polymer clay, and there are about five of them. There are also the polymer clays that require painting afterwards, like Studio by Sculpey as well as Super Sculpey... but I will not get into those.
The five most easily attainable clays are Fimo Classic, Fimo Soft, Sculpey III, Premo, and Kato Polyclay. Each have their own distinct characteristics, pros, cons, and baking times. These are my findings in point form:

Excellent news for everyone!Since all the way back in 2010 all of you guys have been there supporting my work and helping to promote it.

On December 22nd, in my home town of Parker Arizona I will be getting married to a man I've know since the 7th grade. In 7th grade I was 12 years old, come this December 21st I will be 21, 9 years of growing up together. Everything is already set in place for the event, I have my dress, the area were the ceremony is going to be, and nearly everyone in my very small town I call home will be there.
You won't be left out though, I promise to upload plenty of pictures for all of you to see and perhaps a video of the ceremony as well if I'm lucky enough. I wish you all the very best, I thank each and everyone of you for sticking around this long with me.

UTAU Feature Information and Listings!EDIT: NO more bookings are left! But as each month passes, new spaces will be opened up so keep a close eye out! Thank you to those who have taken time to apply! 8D <33UTAU Feature Information and Listings!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Hey guys! Since this is a project I'm actually doing each month from now on, I figured I should give out a little more information about it since I didn't really describe it well enough before! So please read the following at your own leisure:
What is the UTAU Feature?
The UTAU Feature is when I take an UTAUloid suggested by either their owner or someone that knows them and cover a song with them each month! With this it gives the UTAU a little more recognition if they aren't known within the community! My aim isn't to make everyone MEGA popular, it's more or less to give everyone an equal chance to have their UTAUloids used! After all, this is a vast community and it's always difficult to start out with no one knowing you, even the best UTAUloid users have been there once! I'm not popular

Even though as I confirmed it is on a short hiatus, here are the episodes I have planned for the rest of season 1.
Ep. 5 Harmony Rising: The Mane six and the Pine twins team up with Shadow the Hedgehog and Marceline to battle Sombra who kidnapped Stanford. Meanwhile, Shake, Frylock, and Meatwad battle the media after Shake pulls a stunt at a speech for a Rastafarian activist. Meanwhile in another sub plot, Zoe and Rarity become friends.
Ep. 6 No Children: Exploring the lives of Robot, Finn and Gir, Eileen, N, and the mane six. Robot tries but fails to get an invention green lighted, this sends him into a depression. Finn and Gir both go on an adventure in the woods and get lost. The mane six explore themselves, Eileen tries but fails to socialize with others but fails, Zoe's self confidence i

Because the last contest had so many contestants, we figured another contest for the chance to win a messenger of your own was a good idea!
The contest will be a design contest.
You will design a messenger, to become the Messengers mascot for the group!
This contest will NOT be based on how well you can draw, just how the design looks.
1. You CANNOT use a previously made design.
2. You MAY use ANY gender, type of body parts and colour of the Messenger (as long as it agrees to the rules of the Messenger species on the species sheet.) If you have any questions about this, please ask

Personalidad Multiple y BipolaridadSe que es mucho texto para leer, pero traté de escribirlo de forma que no se aburran y les parezca informativo. ^^ Si están pensando en hacer o conocen a algún "OC" con alguna de estas características, creo que sería útil que leyeran en siguiente journal.Personalidad Multiple y Bipolaridad2 years ago in Personal More Like This
El día de hoy quisiera discutir este tema tan "curioso" en que gente toma un patología (enfermedad mental) y la pone en su personaje. En este journal específicamente quiero hablar sobre la Personalidad múltiple y la Bipolaridad. Esto debido a que a veces paso mucho tiempo revisando notas con historias y personalidades de los Oc's para el grupo y en demasiadas ocasiones me ha tocado ver que el user hace que su personaje sea "bipolar".
Su justificación general es que el personaje por un momento está tranquilo o es super feliz~ y en otro momento cae en la depre/suicida, o bien, tiene una personalidad super t&
Interesting Regeneration Pattern (Doctor Who)Both the 1st and 6th Doctors were old and grumpy.Interesting Regeneration Pattern (Doctor Who)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Both 2 and 7 acted silly but had a much cleverer, darker side.
Both 3 and 8 were action heroes with curly hair.
Both 4 and 9 had crazy mood swings and regenerated after a terrifying experience.
Both 5 and 10 were more relatable humanlike Doctors, who tried to be playful, but gradually lost their companions and became darker, in their last episode certain of their upcoming demise.
The War Doctor and 11 both seem to be exceptions to this pattern (11 fits in the same group as 2 and 7, meaning 1 and 6 were skipped), but Capaldi is likely going to fit in the same category as 1 and 6 and it will start from there.

If you are planning to attend on devMEET, simply write a few sentences about you, add special notes about you if there is any need, your nick how you want to be called and pick your three favourite pieces of your artwork. Send to me a note!

Adoptables, Buying AdoptablesBUYING AN ADOPTABLEAdoptables, Buying Adoptables3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Have an Adoptable Fund ready
Having some extra cash in your paypal or extra points in your dA helps you a lot in case you wish to purchase a limited hold-time adoptable. To avoid scamming, many adoptables artists ask for payment within a certain time frame (one or two days generally) and having a fund helps you when you see an adoptable you really want. Sometimes artists will let you put an adoptable on hold, but it's still better to ask first if the 'hold' option is available or not before claiming.
Find an Adoptable that you really like
Adoptables often come in sheets or maybe you follow a lot of adoptables artists and no one can deny that there's a lot of choice around dA. Since you finances are not unlimited, you might find yourself in the tight spot of choosing an adoptable over another. The point here is, you need to *choose*. Because asking both and then making one

JohnSu goes to AX 2013Hey guys, sorry I took so long! This year I'm going to try something a little different and not Flash-dependent. I wasn't really sure how much I was gaining by making the pages squiggly and separated by animated transitions, so without further adieu, here's my report on this year's Anime Expo, now with alt-text! (hover mouse on image for commentary)JohnSu goes to AX 20132 years ago in Personal More Like This
My biggest regret this year was being too busy and not getting around the artist alley more and visiting people and panels. Thanks to everyone who visited, and sorry to everyone who I didn't visit (or visited only very briefly)! I feel really rude in retrospect. I also feel like I didn't really get to see much of what AX had to offer this year by confining myself to my table for most of it.
Next year I hope to have some sort of book-type product at my table, but knowing myself, I will probably either give up or miss deadlines again and you'll see a repeat of the first two images in the report.
MAN, I sure got tired of drawing myself.
Coming OutIt's true, I am Chinese and I was born this way.Coming Out4 years ago in Personal More Like This
At a young age I began to notice this difference. I was attracted to neither boys nor girls. In middle school, I liked math, and in college, I did my homework all night long.
Being Chinese is not a choice, it is genetic. There are risks to being Chinese because society cannot accept the union between a human and a textbook. I have Chinese friends who didn't need sex because they could foreplay instruments and get screwed by O Chem instead. Now, they don't have a social life and are shunned by others.
But fear not, life will get better. I grew up as a Chinese and I am proud of it (just look at my tumblr user name Maid-en-China ). There is the LGBTC (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Chinese) community to help you be comfortable with your Chinese orientation.
1,338,299,512 people came out as Chinese. You are not alone.

Horror PokemonWhat is Horror Pokemon you might wonder?Horror Pokemon5 years ago in Personal More Like This
It is various of stories I have written of all the joyful and happy Pokemon, but turned them into creepy, disturbing and maybe even depressing. If you do not like shedding tears or feeling bad for fictional magic using animals, these stories aren't for you.
All the Horror Pokemon stories are linked in this journal.
If you have a suggestion for a Pokemon and/or a story, feel free to throw one!
I would also like to point out that not all stories are that scary or creepy; some are more, some are less. I just can't think of a better word for these other than "horror".
Please do enjoy!

January UTAU Feature #2!Last up this month; I have been asked to feature an UTAUloid known as Mizuoto Kiaru!~January UTAU Feature #2!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've spoken to his creator a few times and I've really come to respect both himself and the UTAUloid! I'm unaware if I've worked with him in the past but he was pretty easy to work with despite being one of the first VCV voicebanks I encountered outside a chorus! I had fun working with him and hope to work more with Kiaru in future!
Sorry if I messed it up, Aisu! eAe;;
I hope I did this great UTAUloid justice and brought him a little more recognition than before!
Now if YOU have an UTAUloid you'd like me to show off to the world for you, feel free to drop me a note~! I don't mind if they're unknown or well known throughout the community, I support all kinds~! Just not illegal voicebanks, don't ask me to use those. :c
Applications for the UTAU Features Project will resume in March!
Next month, we'll be back to themed features and first up for February is an UTAUloid known as Rei Yamada~!
