BatmathI enjoyed the Nolanverse Batman films a lot, but I've just run the numbers:Batmath3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Bruce trained for 7 years (Alfred mentions his absence in Batman Begins) and he sulked for 8 years between Dark Knight and Dark Knight Rises. Between that, and including the short time in Dark Knight Rises in which he wore the cowl, Nolanverse Bruce was only Batman for about a year, tops (Joker's line "Let's rewind a year" tells us this).
One. F**king. Year.
"Caped Crusader" the Nolanverse Batman is not.
He is "Bat Temp".

I believe that Minecraft is the future of massive multiplayer games, and I'm surprised that none of the big developers/publishers have cottoned onto it yet.
They look at Minecraft and think its success is down to its business model, or to its blocky, retro charm.
It's down to the fact that you get out of it what you put into it.
With a MMORPG, there are pre-scripted quests. With Minecraft, you set the quests yourself or others.
User created content is the key. All you have to do is provide the players with the tools to build.
There are two types of gamer: wall builders and wall breakers.
Wall builders are the ones that spend an age in an RTS game getting their base just right. They play SimCity and act as Dungeon Master during an RPG.
Wall breakers are the type to follow the mission brief. They get set a quest and they follow it. They're the Call of Duty crowd and they're never more happy than when

Paranoia and a sense of impending doom.
The "party game" I just picked up should do the trick.
Each player gets a Nerf gun, the name of a target and the location in the house where they have to shoot them at some point over the course of the evening.
Nothing says "Christmas" like an assassination contract.

Weight Loss Help for the HelplessFirst, a brief history (I had to refer to all of my hand-written journals from a years ago in order to finally get the numbers right):Weight Loss Help for the Helpless3 years ago in Personal More Like This
During my childhood, I was always thin and lanky, but my weight skyrocketed about 30 pounds past what I was supposed to weigh when I was in my early teens. I didn't really care much about what I weighed until my older brother (bless his lil' brain) commented on the size of my belly while I was wearing a fitted shirt. So I decided to make a change. I dropped 20 pounds in 3 months, took a break, then dropped another 10 pounds a few months later and kept it off for a few years.
Then I started college courses. Heh.
I guess the stress of trying to keep straight A's was worse than I thought it would be. It caused me to gain 25 pounds in a year. The extra poundage didn't look too bad since I had grown a couple of inches since my last weight-loss escapade, but I was looking a little lumpy. I decided that even though I knew what my "normal" weight was, I

dear dA: age is irrelevantthis recent deviantart poll "At what age does an artist have the most artistic freedom?" is a condescending and narrow-minded question.dear dA: age is irrelevant4 years ago in Personal More Like This
often i see people have opinions about age and how it relates to art. some say that they are too young or too old to do one thing or the other.
well, i have not been on this planet very long, i can't speak for everyone and everyone's circumstances are different. but i will say this.
you are alive. and since you are, there is nothing that can stop you from your freedom to express yourself through art or anything that you have a passion for - especially your age.
don't let anyone's preconceived notions about your social status stop you from doing something that is so much bigger.
a blank canvas doesn't care how old you are, where you came from or what inspires you. you will always be able to fill it with what inspires you no matter what.
Fandoms, Criticism Vlog, and Journals On FandomsFandoms, Criticism Vlog, and Journals3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Like most people, I'm a fan of a lot of things. However I don't often wade deep into fandoms themselves. For example, I like MLP:FiM, but I wouldn't call myself a hardcore Brony by any stretch of the imagination, as is evident by my continued botches of cutie mark colors (something no hardcore fan would EVER screw up).
Part of the reason I don't delve too far into fandoms is because fans can get very... emotional... about their given fandom. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but it can sometimes be a crutch. I like a variety of series, but I'm not gonna throw a tantrum because of an episode name, or an animation mistake, like some people do. I don't like how angry or defensive fandoms can get sometimes, and for the most part I think people need to just calm down and relax and not be so standoffish.
Fans are, for the most part, good people who are just enthusiastic about a show or series. Just try to keep that enthusiasm from dipping into the negative side of thing

Hey and a hey, carol away,

Lay down your books now, and share out the wine
Lay down your quarrels and sheath up your swords
This is no way to worship your lord
Put down your guilt and your unholy fears
Love loves love, and that's all there is

Good tidings and greetings to one and all! Yuletide is upon us and it’s that time of year to slaughter the livestock and pull out the fermented booze to celebrate a year gone by and to prepare ourselves for the next few months to come which may or may not bring famine and star
Yay for American Independence. No, really!An odd statement for a quasi-neo-imperialist to say, I know, but if the Colonials hadn't (justifiably) got shirty over lack of representation in Parliament, the British Empire would never have become the behemoth that it did.Yay for American Independence. No, really!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thanks to the rebellion/revolution, the British Government changed the way it conducted itself so as to ensure such an incident would never happen again.
Had they not, a revolution similar to that seen in France, 1789, would have very likely occurred on home turf.
The French leadership maintained their "all powerful" façade, and in assisting the American colonies, spent a fortune. This further angered their already irate people, who, in seeing that it could be done, decided to have a little revolution of their own.
So, with the economy booming thanks to renewed transatlantic trade between Fair Blighty and the newly formed United States and with Britain's arch enemy France focused on tearing itself apart, there was nothing to stop the Empire's expansion.

How to get more exposure for your art.I was recently asked for some advice on getting exposure as an artist. Here's my own advice with personal reasons as to why I suggest them. This is not a post for 'bragging', if you take it that way, then please stop reading *i mean this in the nicest way orz* This is stating facts from my experience. What worked for me and what doesn't work. It shows how my own art has gained exposure throughout the years and how yours can too. I am not a fantastic artist, I know what I'm good at and what I struggle with. I work hard for what I know I can push out and I do it proudly.

You are on Ry's Game Show, there are three doors, Door A, B and C. One has a bag of cash, two has peanuts, now Im the only one who knows which door the money lies. So I ask you to pick a door, you pointed at door A. I then opened door C to reveal there's a peanut there. You are left with Door A and Door B, I then ask if you wanna swap your choices, would you swap?
Here's why you should always swap. Its a little bit hard to grasp a solid understanding of it but here goes. This is called the Monty Hall Problem by the way. Just keep in mind that the host KNOWS where the money is so when he reveals the door, he ALWAYS opens the one thats peanuts. And also keep in mind that its always 1/3 chan

So... here's something I need to get off my chest. I've really not said anything about it because I wasn't sure if I'd be behaving like one of those artists that get all pissy about small things... but I still think that I need to say something about it.
You know what I really don't like? When someone goes to comment on your artwork and says "Oh, that character looks just like X", or "this scene reminds me exactly of X."
Well uhh... thanks I guess. Thanks for belittling any effort I've tried to put into a work that I've posted here as little more than a carbon copy of something else.
Don't get me wrong, sometimes I do draw inspiration from things I've seen, whether consciously or subconsciously, but also this kind of thing can happen coincidentally. Now what I mean is that... I personally find it kind of rude
