Here it is...
You require the following ingredients:
1 1/3 cup joshinko (rice flour. Or you can get rice flour and grind it, but it must be ground just enough so it's as a flour. Any wheat grinder would work well. Just use the electronic one. I did it by hand and it hurts>>)
Making the rice dumplings:
Put rice flour in a bowl and add warm water. Knead the dough well (or just use a metal spoon if you want to). Make small round dumplings (the size of rubber balls). Place the dumplings in a (vegetable) steamer and steam them on high heat for 10 min. Cool the dumplings and skewer them in bamboo sticks. (3-4 dumplings each stick.)
Making the sweet sause:

Nintendo’s MiiversePrior to E3 starting up, Nintendo has done something unusual for them... they've given us more information about the Wii-U before their press conference! Specifically they've gone over the online capabilities of the Wii-U and how social networking works with it.Nintendo’s Miiverse3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Nintendo showcased a video of a guy struggling to beat a Zombie boss. He uses the Wii-U Game Pad to look up other users who have had trouble with it. He even posts a note saying he's stuck. His friend sees the note on his mobile device and calls him, but instead he decides to contact another Wii-U user using the built in camera to communicate with video. He talks to an elderly grandpa who tells him how to beat the Zombie boss and instantly he goes right back into the game and succeeds.
Cheesy though it was, it showcased a number of cool features. The first of course being the fact there will be message boards surrounding specific games which you can communicate on, share screen shots, post questions and answers, etc. The second
You Should Be Reading Kamala Khan (aka: Ms Marvel)If you haven’t heard yet, Marvel is branching out quite a bit lately and introducing a bunch of new characters to their roster. One of whom is a Muslim teenage girl who takes up the mantle of Ms Marvel.You Should Be Reading Kamala Khan (aka: Ms Marvel)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Necessary Background Info
If you’re like me and don’t follow 100% what’s going on in DC or Marvel comics right now, some of the events in the story come across unexplained. So here’s a quick little explanation for the main reason of how Kamala gains her powers.
During the end of the “Infinity” storyline, a Terrigen Bomb was detonated in Earth's atmosphere during the Inhumans' fight with Thanos, releasing Terrigen Mist upon the planet. This caused anyone who was a descendant of an “Inhuman” to develop powers of their own.
In Ms Marvel #1 (part of the All-New Marvel NOW! Point One series), we follow the exploits of Kamala Khan, a Pakistani American teenager born and raised in New Jersey

Giveaway #25 is now CLOSED, we'll upload a new journal next friday for #26!
First off, we just wanted to say that our hearts go out to the friends and families of those poor kids (and adults). What happened today was a terrible, terrible thing. I have no idea what went through that person's head that made him want to do that, but our deepest condolences go out to those involved in the shooting.
Please be sure to tell your loved ones how much they mean to you.
And yes, we are back to giving away a free key. This week we will be giving away two free keys to one person. The catch is, you have to give away the second key to someone else! A friend, a family member, etc. Because it's the holidays and giving is a wonderful thing

Binary HatredRemember when I was posting some journals about artist taboos and I had a couple more to talk about? Here's one of them, though it doesn't just relate to artists it's just kinda an all around taboo I wish would end.Binary Hatred2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Perceived Rivalry Hatred
Basically it works like this: You say you dislike something and immediately get attacked by people who either defend the thing you said you disliked, or accuse you of being a supporter of it's supposed rival (whether this has any basis in reality or not). It also works on things you like, things you're indifferent to, or anything really. EVERYTHING has a supposed default rival. Movies, TV, Video Games, Ideologies, Words, Phrases, etc. Everything.
Say you're an atheist? Automatically means you hate all Christians.
Say you like the X-Box 360? Automatically means you hate Sony.
Say you like the PS3? Automatically means you hate Microsoft.
You liked a Marvel movie? Guys you hate the DC stuff.
You like Chocolate Ice Creme? Fuck you and your vanilla bias!

I am writing to you just after a rather painful surgery so please forgive me if my words get a little tangled up - I'm pretty drowsy but this is incredibly important to share with everyone.
I have recently been placed on HelpHopeLive.com as a transplant recipient for funraising! This means that should anyone ever wish to, they can donate to my transplant fund directly and know it will safetly be put aside until used specifically on transplant related things.
It means so much to me that people have repeatedly asked to help out, and now I have a solid legitimate way to do so, and it's even tax deductable! So please, head on over to:

And take a peek at my page, maybe make a small donation!
Thanks for everyone's support, I am now a step closer to getting a transplant, and through this fund I will be able to financially afford it.

One Myth I Wish I Could Dispel"Feminism means you can't like sexy things"One Myth I Wish I Could Dispel2 years ago in Personal More Like This
After doing a series of comics standing up for women's rights, there's a lot of really negative rumors going on around me right now. Most of which point to the hypocrisy that I use to draw fetish artwork and that recently I made pin-ups that were "sexy" in nature. Because, of course, if you're an artist who stands up for women's rights from that moment on you're not allowed to EVER draw women in a way that might be construed as potentially "sexy," lest you be labeled a hypocrite.
As I've mentioned before in previous journals, I really can't stand this mentality the internet has of polarizing extremes. You've always gotta be in one extreme or you're in the other. There's never the possibility that you could be in the middle like, you know, a normal person would be.
I understand why that is: it's easier to point out fallacies and bitch and whine about people when they fit into nice neat black and white spec

This bill (which uses Child Pornography as it's cover) would effectively track every time you look at your bank statement or use a credit card online, and force IP service providers to record your credit card and billing statement info, along with your recent internet search histories, and store them in a "secure" place for 18 months. Anything which looked "suspicious" would immediately be flagged to allow the government to step in.
Since billing statements and online transactions are so common these days, this bill would, In effect, be monitoring everything everyone

Best place on the web?I wanted to share a few facts about a company that is very dear to my heart:Best place on the web?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been my favourite place on the web for about seven years now. It also has some impressive little-known stats - it's the sixth biggest social network in the world. It has 28 million users. It set the standard for the user icon, and incorporated the first 'like' button. It was also, apparently, the first social network, 12 years ago.
I love it because I find it to be a wonderfully positive environment - way less haters than pretty much any site I ever invested any time in. It's supportive of creators, whatever level they are at. It encourages diversity, and doesn't judge it's users, no matter what they are into (pretty much!), writers, artists and photographers all.
It also, many people don't know, sponsored artist's alley at SDCC, keeping it in the main hall, laying down a soft carpet to spare feet, and providing padded chairs. It sponsored Tr!ckster, and the Spectrum convention. It genuinely - and I mean
