Fiction.How redundant is it pointing out these following statements?Fiction.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There's no such thing as a gigantic mechanical robot fighting off alien monsters. There has never been a report of a man being bitten by a radioactive spider and becoming a hero. You can't summon a mini-tornado at your own beck-n-call, don't matter how much into the occult you are. The odds of a young male teenager having a harem of sexy girls at his every turn is nil. There aren't bipeds of animals that are supposed to be quadrupeds flying spaceships in the galaxy above us. You can't legally hunt and catch thousands of different animals and use them to protect you from other animals and people in a sports-like venue. You can't eat a flower and ignite fire from your hands.
I can go on and on... this journal is probably being expressed because of recent built-up distaste for people bullying others because of what they like when it comes to fiction.
Just to reestablish what it even means, here it is, straight
International CoversThe UK Games Expo was held last weekend, and I finally got a couple of my old Fighting Fantasy books signed by Ian Livingstone and Steve Jackson.International Covers11 months ago in Personal More Like This
The authors also held a seminar where they spoke about the early years of the Games Workshop, which they founded. During this talk, they touched on the cover art of the game books, and how their publishers wanted illustrations of fairies and mushrooms and pretty things, while Livingstone and Jackson wanted imagery of things that would tear your face off.
They won. More or less.
Generally, all the FF game books have the same covers wherever they are released. So, Deathtrap Dungeon looks like this in most corners of the world:

Commedian Marcus Brigstocke described the British attitude toward the Olympics quite well a few years ago: http://www.youtube.com/watch?vJEH9P0hgCw&featurelayer_detailpage#t=373s
Truth be told: I've never been that fussed when it comes to the Olympics, regardless of where in the world it's held. It's just this time I'll be thinking "NO! Who greenlit that? They did WHAT during the opening ceremony? Where's that Boyle bastard? I'm gonna kill him".

Weekly Adventures #13: Slender NightOn this day in history in 1923, Walter Elias Disney signed a contract with Margret Winkler and Universal to produce the Alice cartoons. I bet not even Walt himself knew what would happen next. He would defy the laws of animation by creating cartoons with synchronized sound (Steamboat Willie, 1928), the first cartoon in color (Flowers and Trees, 1932), the first full length animated cartoon (Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, 1937), stereo sound (Fantasia, 1940), and countless other break throughs. He gave us characters like Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Mickey Mouse, Pinocchio, Maleficent, Donald Duck, Brer Rabbit, and many more! Since Walt's death in 1966 the company continued to amazed the world with films like the Aristocats, The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Who Framed Rodger Rabbit, Toy Story, and to this day Disney makes the best animated films known to mice or man. Plus the Disney Parks bring in the most amount of tourism!Weekly Adventures #13: Slender Night2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Yesterday my home country, the Czech republic, celebrated one very important and wonderful anniversary. TWENTY YEARS OF FREEDOM! Exactly 20 years ago, famous ,,Velvet revolution started and it finally brought us freedom and democracy.
And I want to tell you more.
It was a result of the historical evolution, result of the World war II, but also Czech blame too. The communist party took power in my country in 1948.
This was the beginning of totality, which lasted for 40 years.
I can not describe all the terrible things which happened during the communist rule.
Just to make YOU, people, who never lived in any undemocratic country, understand:
after 1948, all the political parties were in fact dissolved or they became the part of the only offical party the Communist one. So no democracy. No free elections.
all the media, TV, radio, press were under Communist control and were regulated with censorhip. Police was arresting people, who politely

It seems that every fsking time I try to depict a female, more often than not I'm accused of objectifying women. Sure, I might do maids, princesses, cosplay, and so on, but what other guy does it from time to time. And in the most recent instance, the princess I 'depicted' is hardly objectified, but someone who is pretty, smart, brave, and very much able and willing to make her own kingdom. From scratch. At times, that's what I see Amber as; a Disney-ish princess who decided to go Hardcore and make her own kingdom.
And for that, I'm being objectifying?
Usually, I would just blow it off and think it's coming from some killjoy, but really, it's getting to me. How come some people think I'm some m

1. None of the main characters will die during the story. Okay just one character in all, but that's it. I'll give you one hint: By the time this person bites it, it shall be Karmatic.
2. Nobody will get roboticized. (I'm looking at you, Archie.)
3. Nobody will have their memories transferred to their arch nemesis. (I'm looking at you, Marvel.)
4. There will be no blockbuster year-long universe resetting omni series full of wagnst (I'm looking at you, DC.)
5. The male characters will not have boobs. (I'm looking at you, Lefield!)
6. Photoshopping will be used at the base minimum if at all. (I'm looking at you, Land!)
7. There will be no constant changing of the origin story of the characters. (N

Song Review: 'Default' by Django DjangoBand/artist: Django DjangoSong Review: 'Default' by Django Django3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Album: Django Django (2012)
Genre: Art rock, indie rock
Link to song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?vDjpOrlfh0Y
About a week ago, I decided to go on another rampage of discovery, looking for several new bands to listen to and fresh sounds to add to my iTunes collection. To do this, I decided on a simple task: Go to Metacritic and look over the top-rated albums of the year. In this method, I'd be finding surefire critically acclaimed music, and maybe a great debut or two.
I struck gold with Django Django.
Possibly their most popular song (challenged by their first single, Storm), Default starts out... interestingly. A voice stutters (with the evidence of computer-play as the culprit being obvious) as psychedelic noises somewhat recalling 90's dial-up internet and a bouncing drumbeat lead into the song, the guitar blending into the background. In the 20 seconds you hear this for the first, you have half a compulsion to s
All the Superhero, None of the Crap.I have to admire Mookie of Dominic Deegan http://www.dominic-deegan.com/ for being the web comic artist I couldn't be. His flagship strip might have his detractors. In fact, he doesn't have a message group because it was overrun by his hatedom, but he managed to keep plugging away week after week of fun to read strips and even get welcomed on conventions like AnimeSTL and even earn money out of it. He's someone I wished I could be myself.All the Superhero, None of the Crap.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well, as most of his readers (fans or haters) know, DD is going to end within the next year, 2013 at the latest, quite possibly by either a world-shattering catastrophie by a mad wizard who wants to be God, or by Dominic's own death and passing of the torch to what could be his werewolf pupil. Either way, they'd be some cheering, maybe a tear or two--if Mookie's lucky--maybe a "I want my Ten Years Back!"--if my Inner Retard is correct--and eventually wondering what would be next for our longsuffering friend.

I'll resite this quote from my pal :iconunknow-akatsuki:Unknow-Akatsuki:
"I don't feel motivated to work here anymore. I still have motivation to draw, but other things now (like sprite sheets for The Spriters Resource)...I also don't get much motivation from my watchers as I would like. I have 697 watchers, but only like 5 care about what I post. Even then, alot of the work I'm proud of, or want to do (my original characters, I'm so sorry), gets overlooked by fan art and perverted works."
I've also tried working a bit on the Wiki, just to start up a format that'll allow me to explain the different plot elements a bit more. So for those of you that still care, there's that you can look forward to.
