British HumourToday, I wrote out a post of about 1,000 words or so about why people get offended by British humour, but shouldn't. I then deleted it. Why?British Humour4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Because I realised that in talking about the nature of British humour, and why we're able to happily joke about things like celebrity deaths, racism, sexism, tragedies like 9/11, wars etc. ... I'd end up having people getting upset because I've offended them.
I've saved myself the hassle of this by deleting the post.
All I will say is that, if you can't handle Shock Humour, then you should always be wary of watching any form of British comedy. It's part of our comedic culture.
Otherwise, just accept that you might be offended, and when you are....stop reading, close the video, or change the channel. It's that easy.
"Being offended is part of being in the real world."

Once homeless Miami man earns a Masters degree
After several arrests, drug addiction and being homeless, a Miami man has overcome the odds to graduate from FIU with a Master's degree in social work.
Out of thousands of graduates, only one -- 50-year-old Aaron Alvin Sr. -- got a standing ovation at Tuesday night's graduation ceremony.
"I wanted to make sure I was in a position to help people and so I went ahead and got my Master's," Alvin said. "I just continued to pursue something that was bigger and better and ended up here."
Alvin was arrested several times for drugs, grand theft auto, and domestic violence. He was also homeless for a time.
He said he never,

Gettin' a Pee Cee 8DSo, a friend of mine has fabulously offered to build me a PC, which'll be much better than buying one pre-made from a PC store.Gettin' a Pee Cee 8D4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Once that's done, I'll actually be able to record gameplay (something which my laptop fails at) and will finally be able to get some Let's Plays! of me failing at various video games done. That, and doing Livestreams will be much easier too, as my laptop lags somewhat when it attempts that.
So yeah. Once PC is acquired, I'll be able to finally get stuff uploaded to TouchMyKeyblade. If I can think of anything else random to get up before then that my laptop can handle (bearing in mind that my laptop also isn't too fond of Movie Maker XD) then I'll do dat, too.
...That is all 8D

This is one year old journal, but I have great news - I just read that in local ZOO, baby arctic wolves were born again!
They still stay in a burrow, but as soon as they get older and leave the den, I will do my best to bring you some photos
Photos in this journal were taken in 2011

The quality is very bad, they were some 20-30 metres from me, but I think you can still enjoy their cuteness

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic stamps!
I'll pretty much make a stamp of any character in the MLP:FiM series as long as I can get a clear picture of them. I'm only using vectors (since most are free use, just need to give credit) or literally screen grabs from the show though, OR if you have one of your OWN works that you want me to use instead. I don't want to steal anyone's work.

I'm super done with Death's Nuzlocke.Sorry guys, but I really, really can't continue even making the summaries for DN at this point. The reason being, I've been getting a lot of comments from self-entitled fans who complain to me about how I should make the updates in comic form because they don't like to read, or how they didn't sign up for a written run.I'm super done with Death's Nuzlocke.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, fuck those guys.
(Don't get me wrong though, I'm not shaming people who don't want/like to read lengthly descriptions of bad plot, I don't either. The written updates were pretty much the only solution to giving you all the plot without taking the time to do an actual comic for it, and I didn't expect everyone to bother to sit down and read it all anyway.)
But anyway, I've grown tired. I didn't want to continue making DN updates at all, I only wanted to do them for you. If I had just done what I wanted to do for myself from the beginn

Beware the Batman Review(Valios) Spoilers on Beware the BatmanBeware the Batman Review(Valios)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Guess it was bound to happen, but I just watched Beware the Batman for the first time and felt compelled to write my own personal review on what I think of it so far.
To be honest it has both it's ups and downs, starting with the up I am going to give credit on the characterization and voice acting of Professor Pyg, who makes his animated debut into a DC television series and surprising me on what can be done with a completely new villain, something which is finally fresh and new considering the many times we were given the same old villains of Batman's rogue gallery(primarily the Joker). Also another thing that I personally like is the dark setting of this incarnation of Gotham City and the orchestrated music that fits completely well with the fight scenes and the dark ambiance of the city itself.
Now on to the bad part of what I don't agree with in this new series, my personal dislike on the dramatic change of Alfred Pennyworth, w

'What's so great about Trixie?'A very good question was asked on the group that made me pause a moment to reflect on it. The question was, what's so great about Trixie? Indeed, what is so great about Trixie and why do so many people enjoy her character? To those who aren't a fan of her, I'm sure it is quite puzzling. Or maybe it isn't so complex as one would think. Perhaps we can try to shed some light on this.'What's so great about Trixie?'4 years ago in Personal More Like This
First, we have to look at Trixie's personality, from what we know from the episode. She's snooty, prissy, arrogant, and looks down upon others. Now depending on who you ask, her personality features are not immediately desirable character traits. However, when you look at characters from other series with similar ones, you'll notice that they too have an incredible amount of fans. Ones that come to mind from both western and eastern comics and animation would be Prince Vegeta from Dragon Ball, Raphael from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Asuka Langley Soryu from Neon Genesis Evangelion, and Eric Cartman from So

This is a collection of so-called plz-accounts related to the animated television series "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic". If you have not seen it yet, this is your first step in joining the herd. Just watch the Pilot Episode and see if it can win your sympathy The original collection comes from MLPFiMplz, but it has not been updated in a while, so I thought I make it 20% cooler
Since the size of a Journal entry is limited to 60KB, I had to split the collection:

What is a Brony?While for a while the term Brony was used to mean boy, teenager or adult male who likes my little pony: friendship is magic, in this group we use the word to mean anybody who likes the show. A gender neutral word. Similarly to how "Cool story bro" isn't always directed at males.What is a Brony?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Bronies, to me, are anybody who likes the show, no matter how much they like it.
False terms. Sane vs Rabid.
People obsess over all sorts of things don't they? I remember when I was younger being completely obsessed with Pokémon. I'd want all the games, I'd watch all the shows, I'd want all the trading cards. I still have many of my trading cards now because they still give me happiness when I can play with them with my friends. Did that make me a rabid Pokémon fan? No.
I think we all could use a bit of child like joy like that in our lives some times. Like when you are gaming or when you are maybe watching a funny YouTube video or whatever, it's nice to have that feeling.
Is it bad to be obsessive over a show

My best pet by Niban-Destikim
I think this will say it all: http://i.imgur.com/vBIY9.jpg
I guess when I say I "Draw with a mouse" I just mean the digital part (Lineart, colour, background ect...)
Seems most of you guys thought I sketched with the mouse too?
I'm afraid it is not so, although I wish it was :c
I sketch with the pencil and segments of an A4 page...
That's why I never have a recording of the sketch, since it's done with a pencil and paper, not digitally :/
So yeah, this is pretty awkward :c
Basically the drawing order is:
1.) Sketch with Pencil
2.) Scan and give rough outline digitally
3.) Do the lineart
5.) Background and Extras
Since most of it is done with the mouse, that's why I say mouse
Maybe I should change that...
Project Robot MonkeyProject Robot Monkey is an upcoming comic which develops from a simple idea:Project Robot Monkey2 years ago in Personal More Like This
All the Robot Monkey OC's co-exist in the same universe!
Yes! Your OCs too.
The main target of this comic is to contain as many SRMTHFG Fan characters as possible and to unite our little fandom into one big family.
The comic is set to premiere in early 2014. Until then we need to get as many people's OC's as possible (1-2 per person maybe more if we need). The point being to include as many deviants as we can.
No you don't need to pay or do us any art or whatever to enter in the comic. You just have to submit it and keep us in touch in case you make any changes to the character/characters.
Drawn references will be needed but not for now. What is more urgent is the information (Name/Sex/Personality/Background etc)
The comic will be drawn by Dava-Hydan
