The reason I'm writing this out is because I really wanna be able to inspire, even if I'm not the greatest of artists.

My parents were very against the idea of me doing manga in the future, being famous and stuff.
It's childish, you're gonna be poor, you're gonna ruin your studies. My teachers weren't any better.

And being in my country with little population, that I can understand.

That Kony thing.Kony needs to be brought to justice. As I'm sure you are all becoming aware of while this video travels the viral circuit.That Kony thing.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'd like to share some observations of mine...
The first being: spending the resources to bring Kony to justice shouldn't be a priority. Why?
Because, in the grand scheme of things, he's just one person. And while one person can commit extremely heinous atrocities and crimes against humanity... There's a bigger picture to think about.
Besides, where do you suppose Kony gets all those weapons? Shouldn't something like that be the bigger priority?
Uganda isn't the pit of despair that it was when Kony was there. Yes, It's a nation recovering from a dark period, a struggling nation; but a nation that is trying to build itself. And that is what the real focus needs to be on --growth and development. That means education, economy, healthcare, infrastructure, and sustainable government.

Poe's Death List:icontechgnotic:Poe's Death List3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Foreword by techgnotic
Fri Oct 21, 2011, 8:23 PM
As Halloween approaches, what better way to celebrate the season when the spectral
boundaries of the Kingdom of the Spirits of the Dead touch briefly with the mystical
edges of the Domain of We the Living than to invoke the battered and hellishly bedeviled
soul of Edgar Allan Poe to guide us in communication between (his) ghostly and (our)
ghastly planes of existence.
Poe invented the “detective” story and was an early father of “sci-fi”, and he was also an
extraordinary poet, but he is best known for his Gothic tales of mystery and abject horror –
nearly all of them anchored in the apprehension of an impending cruel and unnatural death.
Edgar Allan Poe by Dr-Horrible

Disney vs Lucas ArtsIf ever you bring up Disney in a conversation, people immediately recite tired old issues with the company that haven't been true for a long time. For example, complaining about the excess of half-assed sequels. That was part of Michael Eisner's regime. When he left the studio the quality Disney was producing suddenly skyrocketed considerably. Likewise the excessive merchandising and branding of Disney related products has also ceased to be as all-consuming now that Eisner is gone. In fact, a lot of the main issues people had with Disney during the 90's and early 2000's was a result of Eisner.Disney vs Lucas Arts2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since Eisner left, the Disney studio has done a REMARKABLE job in clearing their name of many of the atrocities they had committed during his regime. They promptly turned the animation department around and have even begun doing 2-D animated films again after Eisner said "no." Granted, at the moment 2-D is still in hiatus, but the situation isn't as dire as it use to be and there's still promise

So I've been thinking about writing this for awhile, and recently I noticed a lot of people are commenting in ways that can make the artist feel uncomfortable.
This journal is about commenting etiquette.
If you comment like this I'm not mad. Please don't feel like im targeting anyone or anything- it's just something I've noticed a ton of people do.
to start out, I'd like to show you some of the types of comments I see A LOT
the self-pity comment
"This is really pretty. I'll never be able to draw like this I'm awful at drawing"
this is the most awkward way to get attention- the artist feels pressured to give you attention and compliment you. This can be super hard on the artist.
INSTEAD, make it positive!

TRAILERS! Jurassic World + Star WarsJurassic WorldTRAILERS! Jurassic World + Star Wars1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Chris Pratt playing a straight role like that is a little odd to see. He’s so noted as a comedian and comic relief it’s a bit weird watching him take on a role that is just a straight up action macho guy. Outside that, though, I think it looks good. A hell of a lot better than Jurassic Park 3.
One thing to note though, I’ve seen a lot of fans complaining that the dinosaurs don’t have feathers or look like “real” dinosaurs do as we’ve learned more through paleontology. And while I understand that concern I honestly don’t care. My personal headcannon is that these are genetically modified dinosaurs supplemented with amphibian DNA. As a result the fact that they’re not 100% accurate to our current knowledge of dinosaurs if A-OK in my opinion. Not to mention it’s a continuation of the Jurassic Park world, so switching things up now would just look weird. The T-Rex and Velociraptor are such iconic
