Rumour controlEver since shortly after BroNYCon January, ugly rumours about me, and about the con, have circulated over and over throughout the Internet. (They have been accompanied by frequent LGBT-bashing attacks and bigotry.) This isn't a coincidence or the random work of disinterested trolls. It is a deliberate and prolonged smear campaign.Rumour control2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Shortly after BroNYCon January, five staffers made a power grab, attempting to obtain financial and logistical control over the con. I did not let them seize control. They walked; only two returned even temporarily to the staff. These now ex-staffers have been leaking documents and spreading lies and distortions about me, and about BronyCon, ever since. Their aim was to destroy my reputation and that of the con.
When I was on the staff myself, I wasn't allowed to react to any of this. I was under tremendous pressure from the staff to ignore these rumours. But the people spreading them are very persistent. It's late March, and the rumours are still swirling. A

Cthulhu is Still CallingWatch depthRADIUSCthulhu is Still Calling3 years ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
Having been thinking a lot about the origins of our globally held Dragon mythos in a recent article Reptilicus Infernicus, I couldn’t help but notice the Cthulhu legend was always lurking at the edges of my mind as I was researching the subject matter.
The Enemy at the Gates, the “Other”, forever lurking in the darkness and plotting an invasion most evil and an enslavement most hideous, is probably the original seminal “narrative” that was born when humans first acquired self-awareness and began trying to explain themselves to each other as they sat around their fires built at th
A Note on the SFTT Before Last (SFTT #59 Spoilers)So, QUITE a few of you commented on Search for the Truth #59 being all like "BUT HANDY IS THE DOCTOR'S SON TECHNICALLY" or something to that effect.A Note on the SFTT Before Last (SFTT #59 Spoilers)2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'd like to clear that up for you now if I could, and at least give you my opinion on what Russell tried to explain to us.
Thanks to Russell T Davies, the whole 'Handy' situation doesn't make much sense. RTD claimed that Handy was half Doctor, half Donna, but he's obviously like 80% or at the very least 60% Doctor. He doesn't seem to have any of Donna's memories or identify himself as Donna in any way. He's the Doctor. He looks like the Doctor, acts (mostly) like the Doctor, dresses like the Doctor and likes the same ladies. Now, no one was terrifically clever in Journey's End, so it's a bit hard to tell if he's as clever as the Doctor. I mean, he ran at Davros like a bit of an idiot, but at least he was clever enough to build the thing he was going to throw at Davros' face or whatever. So let's just say he's quite clever and that wasn't a

How to win at deviantART: The categories gameThe categories game refers to the switching or misplacement of deviations into less competitive or algorithm preferred submission categories in order to gain a ranking advantage in dA's popularity algorithm, generally as a means of appearing more frequently on front page and subsequently gaining greater exposure.How to win at deviantART: The categories game2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The categories game arises from the inherent category biases under dA's "fair exposure" policy. The goal of the policy is to "maximize the display of the most popular deviations in a variety of topics with Fair Exposure, the community is exposed to a varied cross-section of deviantART. " What this boils down to is that certain categories have inherent ranking advantages and others inherent ranking disadvantages on front page. For more information on dA's fair exposure policy and how it leads to the categories game, consult my last journal on "How to win at deviantART: Exposed: http://roseonthegrey.deviantart.com/journal/How-to-win-at-deviantART-Exposed-289765235"

My Best Motivational TipWhen I become overcome with the guilt and shame and fear as a result of my constant procrastination, I have one trick to get me off my ass that works every time.My Best Motivational Tip2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now, lots of other people and blogs and whatever are all like "look how lucky you are" and "puppies and rainbows" and "if you get it done now, you'll feel better" and lots of other positive shit. While all this stuff is true, I'm still playing Assassin's Creed II for like four hours a day. It doesn't motivate me at all. I still don't want to write a 500 word essay on the subtle differences between the book and the film adaptation of The Road that's due, like, tomorrow.
So here's what I think of.
"Michael Bay wants me to fail."
Insert your own celebrity arch nemesis if you want to, but basically choose someone so crap that it makes you angry. Preferably someone who's getting paid buckets of money to do whatever they do to piss you off.
Competitive nature and the desire to prove your chosen asshole wrong should take over.
Apple RantI generally like Apple products. I was a long time hater of all things MAC back when I used Windows and knew nothing else, but since getting my own MAC I've come to really appreciate them. I've even drawn parodies of the MAC vs PC war, which unfortunately had the effect of pissing off people who still think it's a war that actually means anything (Seriously, if you genuinely get angry or worked up over the finer points of the Mac vs PC debate... grow up. That's like fighting the Nintendo vs Sega debate unironically 20 years after the fact).Apple Rant2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But while I love my computer and my Apple products... they've been doing a lot of stuff to piss me off lately... Allow me to explain my frustrations.
I generally use my iPhone 4S to watch movies. I like having playlists made up of movies so I can have stuff running in the background when I'm working. I also have a cable that connects my iPhone to my TV, allowing me to play those movies up on the big screen. This is useful at conventions because I ca

Da-Creativity: Cosplay HighlightsCosplay (コスプレ kosupure?), short for "costume play", is a type of performance art in which participants don costumes and accessories to represent a specific character or idea. Cosplayers often interact to create a subculture centred around role play. A broader use of the term "cosplay" applies to any costumed role play in venues apart from the stage, regardless of the cultural context.Da-Creativity: Cosplay Highlights2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Favorite sources include manga and anime, comic books, video games and films. Any entity from the real or virtual world that lends itself to dramatic interpretation may be taken up as a subject. Inanimate objects are given anthropomorphic forms and it is not unusual to see genders switched, with women playing male roles and vice versa. There is also a subset of cosplay culture centered around sex appeal, with cosplayers specifically choosing characters that are known for their attractiveness and/or revealing (even explicit) costumes.

"The quickest way to make money from Photography is to sell your camera"
Noticeably in the past few weeks, more and more people seem to be speaking up and making noise at the fact that aren't making money from their photography. There's no doubt about it - Photography starts out as a hobby. You don't one day pick up a camera and decide that you are going to be a pro and get given your first paycheck. It's one of those unique hobbies where you get a gentle introduction around age 10 with your first proper camera (haha) and the rest is History. Whatever you make it really. You can't say that about most professions.
Putting yourself out there is something I've been trying to hammer home the past week, you'll have noticed my ramble if you read last weeks edition of Photography weekly. Getting paid for it is another matter. Sometimes you have to make sacrifices. Sometimes, you might not get paid for what you do.
I'm just going to say......that David Bowie's eyes really, REALLY look like they're two different colors in the video for Valentine's Day. Perhaps not as vibrantly different as I've colored in the past, but the one REALLY looks like it's more hazel than blue.I'm just going to say...1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Adopt Groups list [395 groups]Adopt Groups list [395 groups]1 month ago in Personal More Like This
File can be opened with word, wordpad, notepad, anything like that!
This list has 395 Adoptable groups that I submit to.
○ I think its very important when you make adopts to submit to as many groups as you can, I feel it really helps get your stuff out there. I even bug my friends about it when they make adopts. It does truly make a difference submitting your adopts to 100 groups compared to only 20.
Which is why I share my list every once in a while.
○ Please note you do have to join almost all these groups, just make sure you uncheck the "deviations" box after you do or your inbox will be flooded lol.
There are a few different sections in the document.
○ Points only groups and Cute are groups have one page each only and are at the bottom of the document.
○ Cash/money groups are at the top with 14 pages, 25 groups per page.
When submitting auction adopts I split it up
Color AssociationTraditionally in this comic, the the four main guys all have certain color associations.Color Association9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Erik gets red and black, Javert gets dark blue, James gets green and light blue, and Jareth ends up with whatever he darn well feels like, usually gold and other yellows so I can cover both of the primary spectrum.
But what colors should they really have? Are the ones they've got good, or would something mix better? I'm still developing my eye for color. Any thoughts?
(And, even more importantly, should the girls have color associations too? Christine? Sarah? Eponine?)

To Enable or Disable - THAT is the questionPewDiePie is closing comments on his YouTube videos. In his opinion the disconnect between YouTube personality and fans is too great, and most YouTube comments are worthless spamming, hating, or just plain garbage. While he has turned off comments before in protest of certain things, this time around he says comments are gone for good on all future videos uploaded to YouTube. You can watch his video describing this new change here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_hHKlEZ9GoTo Enable or Disable - THAT is the question2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
What interests me about this, however, is the way in which people are reacting to it. A lot of people are saying “good!” or “YouTube comments are terrible, so I totally understand why he’d do that!” Which is a little surprising to me... because of Anita Sarkeesian.
Now we’ve talked about Anita Sarkeesian before. She makes feminist videos dissecting tropes about women in gaming. As a result of her doing this, she’s gotten ungodly amounts of backlash and hatred. Since her vid
