Warning Capslock and cussing ahoy!
There's nothing quite like a nice stroll on a cool, crisp morning with a NOPE, GOTTA PLAY SKYRIM.
I have to work, bills to pay, walk the dogs, go shopping, and I also need to NOPE, GOTTA PLAY SKYRIM.
Haven't eaten all day, I should probably have some NOPE, GOTTA PLAY SKYRIM.
FYI: If you walk past a flowery bush IRL and your first instinct is "Harvest mountain flowers," you've been playing too much Skyrim.
Approximately half of Skyrim's populace used to be an adventurer just like me, but then they all took arrows to the knee . which is funny because I've taken multiple arrows to the head and that hasn't stopped me from running tits first into one adventure after another and another . And another . AND ANOTHER OMHFG THERE ARE SO MANY !@#$%^&*ing SIDE QUESTS.
Um . Skyrim? Yes, uh, Skyrim? Hi. That's a mudcrab. There's real
Parody vs Pastiche and other Humorous ExamplesJust for fun I thought I'd do a rundown of the most common forms of humor, their definitions, and examples. This is not a complete list by any means, but they are a list of many forms of humor and literature discourse which often get confused of mixed up.Parody vs Pastiche and other Humorous Examples1 year ago in Personal More Like This
An imitative work created to mock, comment on or trivialize an original work, its subject, author, style, or some other target, by means of satiric or ironic imitation.
Example: The movie "Airplane" is a parody of 1970's disaster movies. Many of Weird Al's music videos are parodies of other more famous music videos.
A work of visual art, literature, or music that imitates the style or character of the work of one or more other artists. Unlike parody, pastiche celebrates, rather than mocks, the work it imitates.
Example: The movie "Super 8" is a pastiche of 1980's adventure films, specifically imitating the style of Stephen Spielberg's early career,
Stop humanizing wolves...[please]Just so this is clear: This has nothing to do with the term 'anthro' or 'anthropomorphism'. This is an article talking about REAL wolves, not fantastical depictions of them or even characters. By 'humanize' I mean the actual definition of it -- "make (something) more humane or civilized." -- "give (something) a human character."Stop humanizing wolves...[please]1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Alright, now before I get started I'd just like to say a few things so that people won't jump down my ass and call me some kind of asshole that hates wolves or thinks they should all die. I love wolves. They're beautiful, intelligent, and amazing creatures. They're part of the Earth's ecosystem and they belong in the wild where they are.

The Witchas Multifaceted Icon
Throughout history artists of every discipline have been fascinated, inspired and transfixed at every historical stage of the shifting perceptions of the “Witch” in any given time or society. The seams within every page of every chapter written against or in defense of the witch have been alternatively filled with oppressive sexism, blind eyed religious bigotry, occult doctrine, fevered and forbidden lustful sexuality, misplaced fear, and reams of wide eyed superstition.
Consequently, the colors, and lines within every stroke upon every canvas and visceral depiction, carry all the burdensome weight of the long intricacies of this subject. With respect to this much maligned, religiously and politically repurposed, perpetually misunderstood subject
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.

To anyone who finds these memory cards,

My name is Charles Snippy. I am probably the last sane human being left on earth. I know not whether you will understand this message. I know not whether you'll even be able to decode the ones and zeros on these data cards. I know not whether my voice will even reach anyone.
I know not, whether the microscopic drives will last long enough and whether the plastic and metal which composes them will not disintegrate into dust as centuries pass or whether the titanium shell encasing them will remain in place or be consumed by the ever-changing landscape, lost forever.
And yet I still have hope that someone will find the story of my life, long past and learns something of use from it.
If you are still human, then this will be a story about the collapse of civilization of your forefathers through greed and arrogance.

I found out there was a Legacy of Kain game in the works: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showthread.php?t=594576 called Dead Sun. And it was *allegedly* canceled due to fears that it "would not meet its sales expectations" (pardon me while I go rage-fuck the everloving shit out of literally every single goddamned thing I own until my twat falls off or runs away in abject terror). Here is more about that if you'd rather watch a youtube video explaining it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tnp_NV3xM6w&list=UU2zOXsmWoOxQ2GeVGBvhVDA

The Echo chamber dilemmaThe promise of the Internet was that unlimited information and experiences would draw us together. But instead it seems to have driven us apart.The Echo chamber dilemma2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For years I've observed this behavior but haven't been able to vocalize it correctly. Originally I called the behavior of collective opinions as "the hive mentality" of the Internet. But that wasn't exactly right and I often got called out on it. The most prominent example was when I made a comic about a guy disagreeing with opinions and being shouted at till he remained quiet, eventually fading into the background with everyone else. The consensus of that comic was that if you disagree with someone you aren't bullied into not speaking, but instead are free to go someplace else where people who do agree with you exist. And you know what? That wasn't what i was trying to convey, but is sadly true. The Internet is not a hive mind. It's many tiny pocket echo chambers of mutual agreements.
And this is becoming a growing problem, I think, because n

"Very few possess true artistic ability. It is therefore both unseemly and unproductive to irritate the situation by making an effort.
If you have a burning, restless urge to write or paint, simply eat something sweet and the feeling will pass."
Wait for an inspiration
The mood is just not right today. Sure, you could pick up a pencil, sit down and push yourself to practice but the result would probably end up in a trash can. Waste of time, waste of material. Besides, the guy that commissioned you two months ago found a professional for the work already.
Expect the success to happen quickly
A year or two, tops, that's all it takes to build a reputation. Being an artist isn't a job like any other, therefore you don't need to work on it every day. No need for

About my TMNT rantGot a long journal head of you. I tried to break it up a bit so you can skim parts.About my TMNT rant8 months ago in Personal More Like This
It appears some people were a little less than happy with the idea that I’m not going to see the new TMNT movie, yet have already formed a negative opinion about it. Some people, who don’t understand what the word means, are calling this “hypocritical” since I often ask that people try to see both sides of an issue, so taking a definitive stance here with (what appears to be to them) incomplete data is wrongheaded of me. So now I gotta write this journal to explain my actions better. Hope you’re happy ‘bout that...
It’s just a movie! Why does it matter?
Because it’s not JUST a movie. Movies do not exist in a vacuum. How well (or bad) a movie does informs YEARS of upcoming movies and careers. Thousands of people’s jobs are dictated on the whim of what the box office rankings are for opening weekend. A now famous example is Guillermo
The State of Web Comics + My Intentions with SYACAbout SYACThe State of Web Comics + My Intentions with SYAC11 months ago in Personal More Like This
One of the reasons I focus so much attention on Marvel and DC is because they’re big companies who should know better. They are made up by hundreds of people all chipping in little bits here and there, and for that there is no excuse for bad artwork, bad writing, or bad material in general. They are, to an extent, a bit of a cheap shot, but everyone can learn from their mistakes and I can offer my opinions about them and what I personally would do differently. And if you’re paying money for their products, I think you deserve good content in return, no?
SYAC is, at it’s core, about how comic artists and the comic industry works and poking fun at the various things they get wrong... and sadly that includes a lot of really hot button topics like Women’s Rights, Sexism, Racism, Homophobia, etc. Comics are no longer their own sheltered little thing... they’ve been THRUST into the mainstream audience and all of these problems we or
