This month we've got a relatively easy and fun theme that I'm sure all of you will be drawing anyway:

~~The Royalty Contest~~
It's fast-approaching Christmas, which is a time that a lot of people enjoy. In the spirit of things, we wanted to run a Christmas contest, but, by scanning over DeviantArt and other groups, we saw that, naturally, a lot of other groups had the same idea. We don't much fancy running a contest that's almost identical to other contests on DA – a simple Christmas-themed pony contest is something that you can take part in elsewhere. We also realised that, if we did do yet another Christmas pony contest, we'd likely see a lot of people submitting a single contest entry to several similarly-themed contests. It would be the natural thing to do, and so we wouldn't necessarily blame anyone if t

CAN'T DONATE?? You can still help! JUST CLICK "LIKE" ON OUR INDIEDGOGO PAGE! The more activity our campaign gets, the better chance we have of being featured on the front page. If that happens, we'll have far more exposure to new people than ever before. Just a simple click could help us raise more to help the animals and get us closer to naming the animals, and to a party with me and Tara. **

BRONYCON Documentary is COMPLETE!BRONYCON Documentary is COMPLETE!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's finally finished! It's been several months in the making, and took the dedicated efforts of some very passionate people to complete.
For those of you who may not know, Bronies: The Extremely Unexpected Adult Fans of My Little Pony is a documentary (Produced by Michael Brockhoff, Executive Produced by John de Lancie, Tara Strong and myself) that endeavors to enlighten anyone who may be curious about who this unexpected fandom is comprised of, and just exactly why these adults are so passionate about something that was never intended for them.
You can purchase the documentary for download HERE!!!!
A gigantic thanks to all the generous backers who funded the film on Kickstarter. Your enthusiasm and support ensured the film could be held to a very high production standard. Additional thanks to the contributors: the bronies who agreed to be interviewed and/or to share their st

The vehicles pictured above are MRAPs, or Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected vehicles. These 18-ton armored behemoths are fitted with gun turrets and bulletproof glass. Able to withstand roadside bombs, they were designed specifically for use in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
But now that the wars are dwindling down, what is the army to do with these things? Sell them to local law enforcement agencies, of course! And that’s exactly what the Defense Department is doing through a national military surplus program.
Perhaps even more frightening is that one of these MRAPs was sold to the Ohio State University's police department. You
What Jesus Really Said About the PoorWhat Jesus Really Said About the Poor1 year ago in Personal More Like This
On this Christmas Day, it might be nice to remember what Jesus really said about the poor.
Luke 6:20-21 Then he looked up at his disciples and said: 'Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God. 'Blessed are you who are hungry now, for you will be filled. 'Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh.'
Luke 4:16-19 When he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, he went to the synagogue on the sabbath day, as was his custom. He stood up to read, and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written:
'The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favour.'

Do I Have To Explain Why Killing Babies Is Wrong?!There is plenty of room for gray area in morality. But sometimes, some things are black and white with no ounce of gray in between. One of those things is infanticide, which is clearly black. And while one should always have a well-reasoned constructive argument against something, as blogger Matt Walsh explains, sometimes, no argument is needed:I don’t know how else to explain this. Can I really formulate an argument that will explain why we shouldn’t murder disabled children? If you don’t immediately recognize the eugenic slaughter of handicapped babies as something severely troubling, I’m not sure that I can offer any insights to help you understand.Do I Have To Explain Why Killing Babies Is Wrong?!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
You see, this is the problem. This is why we can’t come to any agreements. This is why our arguments are fruitless. They don’t have to be — arguing could be a rather worthwhile activity.
Price of Super Groups has been Doubled!http://ayame-kenoshi.deviantart.com/journal/Super-Groups-Sale-Upgrade-for-Less-343663635Price of Super Groups has been Doubled!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Double the price and then half it, then call it a sale? If the sale does rise to £73 which is just short of $120 in 3 days time than I will not be renewing our super group when it runs out in May, as it is simply daylight robbery.
I could only barely justify myself paying the previous price with the features we get (and all the bugs that happen with groups anyway). There is absolutely no way I could think of justifying myself paying double the price. Even if I had the points donated to me I'd still think it'd be a horrible way to spend them to do them on super group rather than giving them out as prizes for points contests.
If you really want to vote against it the best way of doing so would be to vote with your wallets/points. Don't waste them on this. I

Time to Move on... Hey allTime to Move on...1 year ago in Personal More Like This
How you guys doing?
I'm leaving the MLP stuff.
Basically, the point of this journal (I'll try not to make it too long.) is that I'm getting ready to move on from the whole My Little Pony scene.
It's been fun, guys, but let's face it, I was only going to keep it up for so long.
As you have probably noticed, despite (attempting) to make comics for the last few months, I've pretty much fallen out of the whole MLP fandom scene.
Unlike when I first joined, back in 2011, where I'd be scouring the various websites for the latest news and re-watching the weekly episodes, I'm just not pushed to do so anymore. I never got around to finishing Season 3, or watching that movie thing, and I've pretty much ignored the whole thing.
Don't get me wrong, I don't HATE the show, nor do I HATE the fandom, I still really enjoy it, and I really do hope I'll watch the last of S3.
It's just I've certainly
A Ripping ReprieveRipper Street, the BBC’s period crime drama set in London’s East End, was cancelled last year when the majority of the British public decided it would rather watch Z-list celebrities eating bugs than a well-written and engaging narrative.......A sign that Fair Blighty sinking into the sea might be a good thing.A Ripping Reprieve10 months ago in Personal More Like This
New BBC series have not been that great. Atlantis was a turd of legendary proportions and The Musketeers was a bitter disappointment; looking epic but putting viewers to sleep through dull, by-the-numbers storytelling.
That, in the face of all those failures, Ripper Street (a GOOD series) was canned did cause a bit of head-scratching.
To my surprise, I’ve learned that Amazon stepped in and made a deal to fund Ripper Street for a third season, airing first via Amazon’s digital channels and then on the BBC at a later date.
Detective Inspector Reid’s fall into the moral abyss can continue uninterrupted!

Witnesses describe it as an oily-black creature with either very stunted legs or an actual fish-tail. It strides around on abnormally long arms.
Image drawn by a child in Souma, over 30KM north of Fukushima.
Feel free to post any evidence you may have found yourself in the comments section.
(And by that I mean: doctor your own photos to perpetuate the myth)
SlendermaidsI only really click on the thumbnails that appear on DA’s front page if they look good. I think most people do. A couple of days ago, there was a fabulous pencil-rendered image that caught my eye. I clicked on it, looked at it, admired the work, added the artist to my watch list and then noticed the minor anatomical flaw.Slendermaids7 months ago in Personal More Like This
It was a simple error, one probably born from a mix of the figure’s position on the page and the artist being so eager to start working the image up that they began before double-checking their construction lines (if they use them at all).
My mind, working in the way it does, saw a funny cartoon in it, and, me being me, I drew it, posted it and fully accept the consequences of it and the reaction of the audience, good or bad.
A little while later, another idea popped into my head. This one inspired purely by the concept of long-armed mermaids and the cartoon I had drawn, not the minor flaw in another artist’s quality work.

An idea I wanna know if you guys are interested inSo I've had an idea to start offering things for raffles.An idea I wanna know if you guys are interested in2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So like, I'd have raffles for different things.
Like a raffle for a custom plushie.
Or a raffle for an animated video.
And other things like that.
And each "ticket" would be $1 -$2.
(I'd also probably put a limit on how many you can get, maybe only up to 3)
So you would have to put the money out for each ticket, and may not get anything.
But if you do win, you would have only ended up paying about $2 for something that would have been between $40-$50+
Anyone think that sounds like a good idea, and if so, would you possibly be interested in it?
I kinda think it's a good idea, but then I think if I did offer something like that that I might just end up losing money. owo
But I could always just see how it goes I guess? XD
Flash Sentry... Oh where do I begin...Okay, I'm going to be brutally honest about this character. This is just how I view him. To me Brad (I like calling him Brad) had absolutely no character development besides helping Twilight up once so she instantly falls for him. Now, I'd be happy and fine if it weren't for the fact that she meets him in Equestria and instantly falls for him. Now just think about that. She has this huge romantic ordeal with him in the humanverse and once she's back in Equestria she instantly falls for him after meeting him twice and only once did he speak. One fucking sentence. Wow Twi, that's just fucked up. Basically here my description. He's the guy who has no reason for being there other than slowing down the plot, diverting from the fucking demonic bitch trying to destroy two worlds, and making fans feel awkward as fuck. Or at least just me.Flash Sentry... Oh where do I begin...1 year ago in Personal More Like This

A pleasant poem by Alchestbreach :3'Twas the night before christmasA pleasant poem by Alchestbreach :32 years ago in Personal More Like This
And all through the house
Not a creature was stirring
Not even a HOLY SHIT RADROACH
The children were sleeping, the parent's were too
The smell of dried dog shit stuck to their shoes
When a clickity slam and a bingity bosh
Crashed onto the roof
"What's that? Oh my gosh!"
Cindy Don Dinkface and Timmy Ton Mace
Ran down to the living room with excitement on their face
And who stood near the fire, a man all in red
He turned around and smiled
"You're gonna wish you were dead."
He pulled out a rifle and pushed down his pants
"Get ready for christmas, now let's do this dance."
He pushed and he puffed and he spread christmas cheer
All over Cindy's face and Timmy's little ear
The parent's came running, what a horrible sound
But they only found the two curled up on the ground
And so santa escaped on his magic jetpack
