Challenge 1: Clean Media, Clean MindWelcome to the first 30 day challenge! This month’s challenge is:Challenge 1: Clean Media, Clean Mind3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Clean Media, Clean Mind
You’ve heard “you are what you eat” and it applies to more than just food. So the challenge is to clean up what sites you visit, videos you watch, and music you listen to. After the month is over, tell us via picture or journal how changing what you consume, has changed how you think, speak, and act. Things to cut out of your media diet: sex, drugs, drinking, swearing, occult, and violence.
These challenges will be harder for some than others, so I’ve included three levels of commitment.
Level 1: baby steps
Cut out media that is blatantly sinful. I’m talking porn, violent movies, songs that swear every other word, etc. If it’s too hard to hold off for 30 days, consider how that itself is a problem. Are you making media an idol? Talk to a trust friend about it or a fellow group member. Also consider listening to a positive radio station:

Sonic Art Collection MagazineSo what's thie Sonic Art magazine all about?Sonic Art Collection Magazine3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First here's what would look like in the newsstand or local comic book store shelf.
Not bad huh? Just to clarify to everyone this is a mock publication that will be personally submitted (in person) to Archie Comics at Comic Con San Diego 2013 as a portfolio review (and as a gift too!). I plan to have a chat with Paul Kaminski (current Editor/Executive Director of Editorial at Archie Comics) and see what I need to do to gain a spot to work there in the near future.
And to be honest with you, many people here may think that I want to be one of the sequential artists, or be the one in charge of artistic direction (ie in the visual sense, like advanced story boarding ) of the stories that Ian writes for the Sonic series, or be one of those who help touch up the comic art (eg inker/colourist/letterer etc) but the reality is I'm not really interested in those aspects - and I know for a fact t

I'm immensely proud of this production, immensely pleased with Kovabomb's performance as Enerjak (boy he kicked ass, some of his lines are unforgettable - "It seems that you've scuffed my helment - HOW RUDE!!" & "... the power... Yeeeeess!") and Brenda's performance as Jani-ca (my most favourite performance of hers is when she is casting her magic with the Sword of Acorns to steal back Enerjak's powers and contain them altogether - by the power of the trademark 'Echidna Heritage Chant' aka "The servers were the Seven Chaos. Chaos is enriched by the heart! ...").
Oh and because I couldn't help but love Silver the Hedgehog, and that I have this hint of ego when it come to voicing the character, I gotta say that I vastly improved on my vocal performance for this guy (and I don't care if

Ok, following the line of sharing with you the lyrics from the original themes of the OST, here I let you the ones from my personal favourite: Wreck-it, Wreck-it Ralph by Buckner ‘n’ Garcia, who were previously famous for writing video game-themed songs in the 1980s, like Pac-Man Fever =3
I love this song a lot since it describes the Fix-it Felix Jr. Game mechanic and backstory so well… allowing you to appreciate the characters from both points of view ^^!
Wreck-It Ralph is a giant of a man
Nine feet tall with really big hands
Living in a stump on his very own land
Until his world went crazy.
He was minding his own business on the day they came,
They showed a piece of paper saying "eminent domain".
They built an apartment building saying progress was to blame,
But he got mad, and he turned bad
Brick by brick, he's gonna take his land back!
Wreck-It Wreck-It Ralph as fast as you can!
You know you can do it with your colossa

Folks I cannot stress how exciting this new year is going to be.
I'm in the process of applying for an Internship at Archie Publications Inc. for the Summer of 2014. Fingers crossed that everything will go smoothly - all the paperwork from Immigration US/Homeland Security can be a real pain in the butt.

Well, rumors about a second movie were here and there right after a few months the 1st one premiered, and we all were talkin' about "plans" on making it... But instead of 10 months old announcements, this one actually is fresh, just from a few days ago...
Basically Wreck-it Ralph 2 is on the go; there's no proper info. exactly (there're mentions here and there about encounters of the alternative universe kind between Ralph and another version of himself from other game, etc, Tron included, etc, etc) on what's the plot going to be or whatever... but Rich Moore apparently wants to "pay his debt" and include Mario on this second installment.
I've been really exceptical with the sayings on the whole thing, but this one seems legit so far...
Honestly, I don't care how much we will have to wait for it, the good thing to know is that is going to be

And now I hope he has a graet afterlife because he never deserved this type of death nor did he deserve hatred from anty-fans. May he rest in peace. And although life is a great gift for all we will all one day pass away no matter what. I was sure Edd would beat cancer because he was mentally strong and did not deserve such cruel fate.

(...) Everyone has a moment when they think “I am a bad artist.” and they think that because they see a level of skill they have not achieved yet. If this is the case, every artist ever is a bad artist, because every artist ever has had some idea, some plan, some goal of a skill level or creation that they have not achieved yet. And that’s good. Learning and growth and moving forward are all good things, so instead of trying to be some fictionalized version of a good artist, let’s all be bad artists together.

GOOD NEWS FOR ANYONE WHO WANTED TO SUBMIT THEIR CHARACTER TO BE PART IN THE FINALE CAMEOS!
We sadly lost a few fans of the comic due to the fact they deactivated their accounts in the past few months, while it is tragic, we cannot have people's characters in here who no longer exist on this site. We will have a memorial for them of course, but we will need newer characters and new people! : )
So I am reopening the Finale Cameos again to anyone who wants to submit their character to one of the biggest comic character cameos out there!
We also want to make the cameos more selective now that the main goal has been reached... Meaning we will accept characters that we consider original and are not recolors or re clothed characters. DO NOT WORRY IF YOU SUBMITTED A CHARACTER LIKE THAT IN THE CAMEOS, THEY WILL NOT BE REMOVED! PROMISE!
If we like your character, you, and how you pre

Instructions: All questions have varied points possible and are listed at the end of each question within "(10+ Points)" NO ONE will have the same score thats for sure since everyone will be differently. What you need to put inside the "[ ]" is the points you earned for that question. Be sure to read the questions carefully as some have extra points you can earn if you did something rare or what not.
I recommend you answer these questions with honesty. Don't lie about things you never did or owned. When you are done answering the 50 Questions in the Five Categories tally up your total points at the end and compare them to the ranking system. Remember,
