Devious Journal Entrythe day my heart forgets you that will be the last day of my life...sometimes sometimes i get these thoughts in my mind...I was looking at you from dusk to dawn ...your eyes have stolen the serenity of my heart...oh companion, what is life without you? in flowers,in buds,in the streets of love,without you there is nothing anywhere.I wondered how,without my knowing,somebody came and settled in my thirsty mind, in the madness of this crazed heart,we have lost everything of our own,the stories of my heart,in every heartbeat I thirst for you. My breath is your fragrance from this earth to that sky in my eyes is only you all around. May this love not break. My life burns out in drops and all my dreams are extinguished,for your sake, I lived with my lips sealed.For your sake,I lived swallowing my tears but in my heart the lamp of love continues to burn. Life has brought with it the chronicles of days past.I have comparable memories surround us. Why does my love for you swell up and high? whaDevious Journal Entry3 years ago in Personal More Like This

UPDATE: Bracer Raffle #2 =DUPDATE: Hey Friends, I get to go on a surprise camping trip this weekend! Unfortunately that means I won't be able to call the raffle until Monday or Tuesday, but to be fair the raffle will still end on Saturday! So all those entering must enter no later than tomorrow night! I will see you all again next week!UPDATE: Bracer Raffle #2 =D2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
It has been a crazy busy summer! So, busy that I have not nearly been as active with my photography and clothing as I would like. I also have been promising more bracer raffles for the future but have gotten behind schedule with them! So to start off the slide into fall I would like to host another bracer raffle!
So here is how it works:
-Favorite this Journal. (this is how I will keep track of the contestants)
-You must be watching me. (This is a gift to my friends, not passerby's! It is ok to start watching me now. )
If you are the winner, you will get to pick either one pair
On Humor and Grittyness in Movies/Video GamesI'm getting really sick of the idea that the only good action movies or video games are ones where everything is all serious and dark. It's the whole "gritty" concept blown to extremes. But through all the countless games I've played and movies I've watched, I think that we could back off a bit from being too damn serious and have some fun once in a while.On Humor and Grittyness in Movies/Video Games2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Take the latest Die Hard movie as a prime example. From the start it's a dark, gritty, almost monochromatic movie with a 20 minute car chase sequence at the beginning so over-the-top that it's almost cartoony. But the way it's shot is atrocious and there's no character development what-so-ever that 40 minutes into the film I was looking at the clock wondering not only "when will this be over," but also "what the f*** did I just watch?"
Contrast that to something like Independence Day. People like to rag on Independence Day because it's so "goofy" and "absurd." But what helps the film is that we're given time to enjoy the characters s

This is another long one, and I apologize but I need to speak my mind. This journal is in response to the "righteously indignant" users making a fuss about me "selling" fanart of copyrighted characters in my recent Adventure Time post. To the person who signed up today just to write a nasty comment on my new Society6 page. To the person who flagged my recent Adventure Time illustration on DA and then proceeded to send me an e-mail about doing it (probably the same person). To the people creating multiple accounts to try and dissuade users from spending their money how they see fit. And to a long list of people who follow everything I do post just to make sure that their negative voice and attitude are the first voices anyone ever sees on all of my work.

Fake art - why care and what to look forI posted this last week for anyone looking for help to spot fake art. This is not law, if you don't care, feel free to move on. But if you do care that there are fakers out there, then maybe this could be of some use to you too. We have a serial faker on the loose on dA today so it sparked this little lot once more.Fake art - why care and what to look for3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, the questions/scenarios asked are always the same and the responses/justifications are always the same, but give them a minute to sink in before replying and insulting.
(Q1) Why do you care if someone is cheating what does it have to do with you?
(A1) Well, this is a public ART site and if people are submitting art that is not actually what they claim it to be, then they are dishonest. This will annoy some people and not others. If your passionate about your work then the chances are you'll find it insulting to the artistic community as a whole. Additionally, a lot of admins of groups HAVE to deal with fakes as a daily occure
Missing the PointI've been noticing a trend lately where people seem to deliberately be missing the point behind stuff in order to complain. I used to think it was just me, as I watched people write up lengthy articles nitpicking and "debunking" a comic I made because they simply missed the point, but I've started seeing it happening to other people too.Missing the Point3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Recently over on The Oatmeal, artist Matthew Inman made a joke about guy gamers vs girl gamers. The joke was pretty simple: A guy gamer makes a mistake and gets bitched out by his fellow teammates online. Contrast to that, a girl gamer makes a mistake and her fellow teammates try to comfort her, tell her she's doing great, and make suggestive comments about hooking up. To me the joke was clear, guys treat girls differently online. However, that's not how the rest of the internet saw it...
From what I've read of the whole Oatmeal flare up, the reasons for the hate seem grounded in the fact he depicted the girl as blond and bubbly (ie: stupid) and not as
The worst anti-vaccine argumentsWhile those already indoctrinated against modern medicine tend to be a lost cause, it's always good to provide information for people who are still on the fence or uncertain!The worst anti-vaccine arguments2 months ago in Personal More Like This
So, here's ten of the things I hear most often about vaccines, why they're wrong, and some relevant links.
"There's MERCURY in them!"
The claim that vaccines are dangerous because they "contain mercury" is a deliberate misunderstanding of chemistry designed to mislead the public.
Mercury is an element in the organic compound, thimerosal, in much the same way that deadly, toxic chlorine is an element in the compound sodium-chloride, otherwise known as salt - the same salt you put on your food.
Raw elements can be dangerous in their pure form, but help build entirely harmless and even strictly beneficial compounds.
Thimerosal is used as a preservative agent preventing a vaccine from becoming contaminat

The new Star Wars teaser has me bouncing up and down in my chair with glee. I’ve watched it a dozen times and I cannot wait until I get the chance to see it on the big screen, but there is one teeny, tiny thing that just rubs me the wrong way. It’s a really stupid thing, too. Something that, when I tell you what it is, many are going to ask why it’s worth getting in a twist over.
That stupid lightsabre.
And it IS stupid. It’s a really, really bad weapon design and people are going to be taking the piss out of it for years to come, I’m sure.
Ever since Darth Maul showed up with his two-bladed sabre (I believe it was called “The Compensator”) a new sabre gimmick has been required with each further expansion of the mythology. We’ve had purple sabres, Ventress had her twin sabres, Grievous did his Cuisinart-thing, etc, etc.

I should have written something sooner regarding the Murphy Apprenticeship (where I took 5 students into my house in Maine and taught them comics for 2 weeks).

Tired of the Video Game IndustryWith the PS4 on the way, the gaming industry is alive once again reminding us how dull and boring and... wrong... it is. Here's a quick summary of some of the things I'm sick to death of hearing about when it comes to video games.Tired of the Video Game Industry2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Polygones = Emotion
I'm sure you've all seen the jokes, but this one stems from David Cage, who gushed over the tech demo of an old man's face for the PS4, remarking about how the only way to get "true" emotion is by bridging the uncanny valley with high resolution models, hi-def textures, and realistic shaders. "True emotion" of course can't be found in books, TV, or cartoons because none of those things can depict the exquisite details of a wrinkled face in true HD glory. I'm sorry to say this, David Cage, but if I can get an emotional response out of 16-bit pixel sprites from Chrono Trigger, or a pictureless book... your logic is faulty.
I'm really getting tired of everything wanting to connect to everything else. I know
Wow.I just spent an hour right outside my home watching northern lights for the first time. Potentially the most beautiful and fascinating thing I've ever seen. Not that I've seen much in my life but this was hands down worth all the superlatives. It was like a living and breathing magical light painting all over the sky. Silent ambient green fireworks against a cloudless night sky with all the stars visible. I had hard time deciding which way to look because it was everywhere and constantly moving and changing in every direction. It made me smile more than anything in ages, it made time and place vanish, and I never wanted it to end. Maybe I really should move somewhere where I can see them more often than once in 30 years. I might be a far happier person. With a very sore neck.Wow.2 months ago in Personal More Like This

A funny thing happened to me todayI went to church.A funny thing happened to me today3 years ago in Personal More Like This
No, that's not it.
I went to church and someone almost maybe died.
He had a heart attack right there. And as the paramedics were heading to the church from the hospital fifteen minutes away, my mom (a nurse) ran out of the room to go help him. So I was left all alone in a room full of sniffling, crying, sobbing people.
And I felt nothing. Except for numbness. I don't know what's wrong with me, for not wanting to cry or pray or do anything. I just wanted to leave. I was taptaptapping my shoes on the cement floor, working out rythms to listen to while I waited for it to end.
Anyways, I felt like sharing, because it's not everyday you go to a church and someone almost maybe dies.
Oh, and I figure I should say that whatever your religion (if you have one) at least hope for the man that almost maybe died. Because everyone has hope somewhere inside them.
