NEWS STORIES (now with more sources!)George Lucas now says Hans Solo never shot first... ever. Even in the 1977 original movie. According to him he had filmed the scene in question from all angles and due to faulty editing it appeared as if Hans shot Greedo and was a "cold blooded killer." This portrayal of Hans apparently rankled in George's mind for such a long time that he attempted to "correct" it in all subsequent re-releases, much to the chagrin and annoyance of Star Wars fans. I could go into a lot of crazy detail about how his wife edited a lot of Star Wars because George can't edit his films, and the subsequent re-edits are possibly George trying to distance himself from his divorce and painful emotional memories (hence why Jedi aren't allowed to "love" in the prequels but are perfectly ok to do so in the originals)... but that would probably bore the crap out of people and I'm honestly just sick of George continuing to change things. http://www.escapistmagazine.com/news/view/115773-George-Lucas-Says-Greedo-AlwayNEWS STORIES (now with more sources!)4 years ago in Personal More Like This

For several months of torture, the Directorate kept me in their offices, making me file paperwork on their "test subjects", all while I kept sending applications to the "Dead Zone tourism" branch, to get away from towering cubes of the Directorate, away from cities and transmitter towers that were slowly frying my brain.
Centuries of industrial pollution were inevitably changing the biosphere of our world and the Directorate knew it better than anyone, yet they did nothing to stop it, profit had to be maximized, production had to be increased, customers had to be satisfied. Holes in the ozone layer, irreversible changes in the atmosphere, radioactive fallout, wild-life mutations, the days growing darker and the sky turning black - none of this mattered to them.
These changes must have been so gradual that no single generation was able to protest it.
Everyone was happily, playfully, and joyfully ignoring the world outside o

My thoughts on portable gaming and the PS Vita.[ReadMe: Alright guys, get ready for this wall of text rant tonight. (Note: this is NOT a review of the Vita. You can get that from any major game review network.) This is just a rant I had to rant about because I'm a nerd, and it's fully opinionated, despite I talking like what I'm saying is pseudo-factual. Your agreement with me may vary, though this is pretty inconsequential stuff.]My thoughts on portable gaming and the PS Vita.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
So lately I've been hearing a lot of people eager to look at their watch and pronounce the precise time that portable gaming has passed. I don't have any crazy statistical facts or deep market research on the matter, but I don't entirely think portable gaming on dedicated devices such as the 3DS and Vita is in decline like headlines constantly make it seem -- it's likely still growing (or at the very least remaining rather level.) It's just that compared to NON-dedicated-device gaming such as on smartphones and tablets, the dedicated market is beginning to pale in comparison. (I could be wrong about this

The Derpy Issue Part 2It's come to my attention that Hasbro has, indeed, changed Derpy. In the iTunes version of "the Last Roundup" where she finally talks and Rainbowdash says her name, Derpy no longer has "derpy" eyes (although they do seem to occasionally be crossed), has a different voice actress, and Rainbowdash doesn't say her name. If you want to see the clip you can see it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?featurelayer_embedded&v=X2CRjPO73Dg#!The Derpy Issue Part 24 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sadly I can't get behind the bronies on this one. You guys screwed it up for the rest of us and I have no sympathy for your plight. Hasbro is entirely justified in their position as a corporation to protect their properties from perceive negative perceptions, and that would never have happened if we as a community hadn't thrown such a tantrum over a non issue.
You see, a couple months ago a few fans saw something "suspicious" and made a big deal over it without doing any research. Soon, the entire internet was throwing a big crybaby hissy fit over exaggerat

PROTECT-IP is a bill that has been introduced in the US Senate and the House and is moving quickly through Congress. It gives the government and corporations the ability to censor the net, in the name of protecting "creativity". The law would let the government or corporations censor entire sites-- they just have to convince a judge that the site is "dedicated to copyright infringement."
The US government has already wrongly shut down sites without any recourse to the site owner. Under this bill, sharing a video with anything copyrighted in it, or what sites like Youtube and Twitter do, would be conside

The brilliance of Derpy HoovesAs many of you know in the first season of "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" there was an animation mistake resulting in a background character having googly eyes. Internet fans of the show (bronies) latched on to the character and nick-named her Derpy Hooves.The brilliance of Derpy Hooves4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since the show has become such a huge internet phenomenon, Hasbro has responded to the appreciation by acknowledging the strange character and inserting her into strange places throughout the second season.
In "Feeling Pinky" she appears as the reason for a number of huge objects dropped from the sky.
In "Luna Eclipse" she appears dressed in a Halloween costume of made of paper bags.
In the Rainbowdash and Fluttershy duet song in "May the Best Pet Win" she creepily peeks her head out of the chicken coop.
In "Sweet and Elite" she appears inconspicuously dressed in her paper bag outfit hidden among fancy ponies during Rarity's musical number.

2. How do you load texture packs on a MAC version? All the tutorials I've seen require a 3rd party program to install, and I think the program is PC only...?
3. What's the difference between peaceful and normal difficulty? Do enemies attack in peaceful mode?
4. How do you obtain the necessary materials to create a portal to the nether?

Derpy Hooves vs HasbroSo it has come to my attention that recently Hasbro has (possibly?) ordered a cease and desist letter to WeLoveFine.com for selling Derpy Hooves related T-shirts. This, coupled with the mysterious disappearance of the episode "The Last Roundup" (which is the one where Derpy talks) from iTunes has gotten fans freaked out and panicky. The general belief is that Hasbro wants to stop the cannoning of internet named Derpy from the MLP series due to the backlash of people getting angry for them for doing so in the first place. Petitions are going up ( http://www.change.org/petitions/hasbro-studiosthe-hub-do-not-change-derpys-name ) and blogs are being posted and everyone's going nuts over this.Derpy Hooves vs Hasbro4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here's my two cents:

The best examples you may find in the Featured folder. The group does not support photography, photomanipulation and 3D rendering, but you may submit them to our favourites. However, cosplay and fashion photography might be submitted to the Artisan Crafts folder, if the outfit was hand-made and it's entirely shown in the picture. For further info about the folders just see their descriptions inside.
No sweet pinky things. No abstract (don't confuse abstract with surreal). No cliché gothic pictures like from Victoria Francis. Modernish things and themes - from after 1930's - rather no.
Think of brothers Grimm, think of Discworld, of Tolkien, of Moomins, Lovecraft, Poe, of legends, of the Golden Age of Illustration, of imagination, of some twisted stories and
