New York City-based artist Alex Myung (~alexmyung) has started a Kickstarter project to raise $20,000 to create Arrival, an animated short film with a focus on the theme of coming out. Equalitopia sits down with Alex to discuss the project.
Currently, the project has raised almost $4,000 from 74 different backers, averaging out to about $52 per backer. Keep in mind that Kickstarter projects are “all or nothing,” meaning that if the project doesn’t reach its funding goal by Wednesday, February 20th, no funds will be transferred to the project.
Equalitopia: Could you tell us briefly about the storyline of Arrival?
Alex: Arrival is about a young boy growing up

Digimon Profile: MaraudamonSince I've started commissioning custom digimon that are transformed versions of existing girls in Digimon, I figured I would start giving them profiles here.Digimon Profile: Maraudamon3 years ago in Personal More Like This
First off: Maraudamon, formerly Nene Amano:
Maraudamon is a pirate digimon, second in command of the "Gold-thief Army" under Olegmon. She's a walking armory, with significantly more weapons than her scanty clothing should be able to conceal. Despite her footware, she's also alarmingly fast. She took the place of Mermaimon after the former was destroyed in battle. She serves Olegmon quite loyally, showing great affection for her master and the rest of the crew. She has a weakness for jewels, however, and will sneak them away from Olegmon's plunder whenever she can. She's very social, often joining the crew for meals, rather than eating with the rest of the officers. In combat, she supports her captain, utilizi
Grossed Out by the Human PrimateThe longer I live the more I realize that I am completely grossed out by the human primate. Perhaps this is the result of living in a crowded city most of the year, or maybe it is just that as a model/artist I am exposed to the more lustful and critical base instincts of humanity. Maybe I am just having a natural internal reaction to overcrowding and overpopulation of the planet that seems to be happening. Whatever it is I am more and more grossed out by the human primate and becoming more and more of a recluse. I have less of a desire to contribute my genetics or my intellectual input to what I see as being a miserably counterproductive society.Grossed Out by the Human Primate1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The internet age has given us some incredible things but in the end I think it is contributing to an exponential tail slide of human evolution. All around me I am seeing increasingly unhealthy, rude, aggressive, and unsightly people. This was not the case 10 years ago.

A World of HeterosexismAll around us the world is changing and yet in many ways we are still required to retain the norms and ideals of something archaic. We are forced to upgrade cars, fashion, electronics and other such "necessities" almost daily through our abhorrent planned obsolescence culture and yet when it comes to relationships we are given one option and one option only, heterosexuality. Mind you I have no issue with heterosexuality, I respect and accept ALL sexualities but I don't believe that hetero is the only legitimate choice when it comes to sexuality. Science has long observed alternatives to heterosexuality in the animal world and yet when it comes to us humans the whole thing is still stigmatized well into the 21st century and the rights of an entire segment of the population are up for discussion and trial by the government. Should we not just stop caring what the government thinks and just do what we feel like when it comes to our intimate lives? In a truly FREE country would we not be aA World of Heterosexism2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Primed for Self DestructionWe live in a society where things are destined to fail. This is not a conspiracy theory; this is done by purposeful design. Inevitable self-destruction has been implemented on purpose and it is called planned obsolescence. I am sure that many if not most of you are and have been aware of this phenomenon in business but for me, an artistic person who loathes any and all aspects of business this is kind of a new find, at least the scope of it is new to me.Primed for Self Destruction2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I first heard of planned obsolescence from a friend who had a father from the auto industry. I was shocked to learn that cars were designed to fail on purpose both mechanically and visually. Ever wonder why in the 1950s cars changed the complete look EVERY year? Mechanically American cars along with many European marques were and are to this day notorious rust buckets. Still things were better than from a mechanical standpoint since the cars were at least fixable. We own two American cars from the mid to late 1960s and both are a

TF2: The Secret Spy Chapter Eleven"Mmmh, it looks a little too tight, I'm going to loosen it up, ok?" asked Marc as his hand came to rest lightly on my bandages, waiting for my reply. I nodded as best I could and then he began to unravel the bandages. All I could really do whilst he was doing this was stare up at the ceiling. Taking in the odd crack here and there.TF2: The Secret Spy Chapter Eleven2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I felt each silky stroke of the bandages as they slowly slipped away from their embrace around my neck,basking my now revealed and agitated cut to the cool air. Soothing the itching heat. Like when you put sunscreen on a burn.
I heard both Adrien and Marc gasp quietly as they saw the hideous puckered line that now decorated my throat. "That looks...painful..."breathed Adrien and I heard Marc hum in agreement as he began to rewrap the bandages hiding the cut once more. I sat there feeling him coil the smooth fabric back with a gentle hand.
Then I felt another hand lightly pick up the smooth-faced tooth that still hung from the base of my neck. "Nat...this is

On misunderstandings about cosplayThis is a topic I've been meaning to talk about for quite a while now. I finally got the motivation to when Sarah sorairo-days emailed me to share my thoughts on what cosplay means to me, and what I feel it really means to be a cosplayer despite all the misconceptions about the hobby. It's for this article on Random Nerds, in which Sarah shares her side of it as well.On misunderstandings about cosplay3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Over the years, I've witnessed how cosplayers are constantly looked down upon, which makes people apprehensive towards it. It's such a shame because it's a wonderful and rewarding hobby which brings people together. And in general, I am firmly against making anyone feel bad about doing something they want to do.
I am aware that the concept of cosplay might be too much for some individuals, but our intention definitely isn't to get all up in everyone's faces and say everyone should cosplay or whatever. We just want to promote a
