Sexism in Gaming Culture LINKSSo... that last journal was a doosie wasn't it? 500+ comments and counting! Yikes. I can always count on Anita Sarkeesian to give me tons of views, lol. All joking aside, that was a very serious batch of discussions. Anytime we talk about sexism and objectification of women in gaming or geek culture, it's sure to get a lot of responses.Sexism in Gaming Culture LINKS9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Sadly since Anita is such a hot-topic around the internet, there was more than one person who were trying to claim that there actually isn't ANY issue with the game industry involving sexism at all. To them, this whole idea that women are marginalized or objectified or treated badly both in the gaming industry and in geek culture is just false. It doesn't exist. And any attempt to explain why we need to change things is inherently flawed because there's no reason to do so.
So in the interest of trying to debunk that bullshit, I made a list of sources I accumulated around the internet to prove that this is indeed a problem. I think everyone can benefit f

Jumbo Monster Gomera (2012)Welcome to another exciting edition of Kaijuden Theater, where we find free giant monster movies and episodes online, and share them with you!Jumbo Monster Gomera (2012)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
And we have something very offbeat for you to view today!
Now it's not every day a Japanese production company goes out of its way to subtitle, English dub, and upload some of their works online for American viewers. But IDA (short for International Digital Artists) has done so with their recent series "Jumbo Monster Gomera", which is a spot-on live action spoof of the Kaiju Eiga genre, mixed with a sardonic anime-style sense of humor.
Not to confused with the far more famous Gomora of the Ultraman franchise, Gom-E-ra is an aspiring giant monster who hopes to one day make it as big as more legendary Kaiju like Godzilla and Gamera. Unfortunately, Gomera is kind of a cowardly buffoon, who is a way too nice to cause the citywide destruction on purpose, and often times by sheer luck, or by accident.

You can see practically the same post over on my page but I am going to repost it here with some slight modifications.
I want to have a contest for people to design their own Tyrant monster variation. If you don't know, Tyrant is an Ultraman Monster from the series Ultraman Taroh. He is a Chimera monster...meaning that he is just an amalgamation of different monsters all thrown together. He is one of the best examples of a well planned monster with this idea. I mean if you did not know, you would swear that every piece of him was original for that suit! Tyrant is not the only monster that has used this idea......but he is the best. Jumbo King and Ezmael and Giga Chimera have gone the route of the Chimera monster.............with less than stellar results. Jumbo King i
Reminisce about the Godzilla Fandom. Rise and fallThis is going to be an odd little journal entry for me. It's just going to be an odd assortment of past memories and impressions of the Godzilla fandom. Arguably at it's height; a little bit less than a decade ago. As some of you know I am EarthBaragon, formerly the creator of EarthBaragon Productions. A kaiju music video team that were the first to create kaiju music videos. In fact I was the first. I didn't do it to get a name in the fandom. I did it cause I loved it. I was floored when people found such great enjoyment from it and ended up creating a fan-group for it. Since my youtube account got banned and I lost everything, I just never had the urge to ever put them up again. If Toho wants to be like that, I just found myself not really caring to do anything creative for them. (Probably why I am such a hardcore Ultraman fan now I guess).Reminisce about the Godzilla Fandom. Rise and fall2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Pray for North KoreaIf there is one thing I've learned is that we Christians in the U.S. have it very easy.Pray for North Korea3 years ago in Personal More Like This
When we think about persecution we usually think of it as something that happened long ago
during the Roman Empire but it is still happening around the world every day.
For some of us praying is all that we can do, to help thouse suffering, but it's something
that I'm trying to become more involved in. And maybe to help others see the need.
Nowhere in the world is Christian persecution so fierce.
Christians have to hide their faith.
Christian parents can't share their beliefs with their children until they're old enough
to understand the danger.
Owning a Bible can get you killed, or sent to a harsh labor camp.
MARTYRS AND SUFFERERS
In 2010 hundreds of Christians were arrested. Some were murdered, others sentenced to labor camps.
Despite the risks, the church is growing: there are an estimated 400,000 believers.
For endurance for the 50,000 and 70,000 Christians in labor camps

KMAC For June 2012: RhedosaurusThe one and only Ray Bradbury, author of many modern classics of science fiction and fantasy, has died today at the age of 91.KMAC For June 2012: Rhedosaurus2 years ago in Personal More Like This
In honor of him, we're dedicating this month's art jam to a prehistoric giant he helped create, which in turn, went on to inspire many other such monster films, including the original "Godzilla".
"The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms" is a 1953 film that was loosely adapted from Bradbury's short story "The Fog Horn", which told the tale of a lone dinosaur who mistakes a light house and it titular horn, for one of its own kind.
Of course, the Rhedosaurus of the finished film, isn't quite the same figure from the original short story (he's quite mean actually), but is a conceptual spawn of "The Fog Horn" regardless - especially since Ray Bradbury was involved with the film's production. It should also be noted, that Ray H

One of the ongoing themes that I heard a lot about at church as of late is the subject of luke-warmness. When it comes to our faith, God would rather us be hot or cold. Apathy and settling are the enemies of the christian faith. Have passion! Whatever you stand for, stand for it loud. God doesn't want meh christians. He wants followers that are all or nothing! So think about yourself. Are you caught in an apathetic cycle of Christianity? Does your "walk" consist of going to church on sundays and then doing whatever for the rest of the week. Can people even see a difference between you and your non-christian friends? or do you behave worse then them all?
This week I challenge you to get off the fence and do something with your faith.
