~~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. **
**UPDATE 4/25 -- we have just $3300 to go before we name an amazing, enormous Salcuta Tortoise TANK!

What Jesus Really Said About the PoorWhat Jesus Really Said About the Poor2 years 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.'
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!3 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

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.

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

Ferguson Rioters UPDATEOK, this has all of us in a whirl lately by how the community in Ferguson is reacting. But I'm gonna say this, looting stores and burning buildings is not the peaceful protest. And there are things that they don't know what really happen in the shooting of Michael Brown but the details from Officer Wilson are revealed that Michael Brown assaulted him first and Wilson shot him in fear of his life.Ferguson Rioters UPDATE11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Even though he could've shot Michael Brown in the legs or the crotch, but here's something else. Michael Brown made two poor choices, the first one was shoplifting, the second was attacking the police officer. If he hadn't made that second choice, he would've been arrested and charged for just the shoplifting and spend a couple of months or so in jail before being released. So Ferguson and anyone sympathetic to the Brown family needs to get over it, this isn't the 'Southern Victory' tim

On August 5, 2014, deviantART has been blocked in Russia, which means Russians won't be able to access this site anymore! That is, if they don't download Tor Browser which will still allow them to visit this and other blocked sites! And spread the word! This is unacceptable! Even if I'm not from Russia, they still deserve freedom! Every race does!
My DeviantArt StoryWell, since DA's turning 14 years old today, I might as well join in on this little thing everybody's doing in honor of it! Here it is, everyone! The story of how I got on DA, and how things have progressed for me!My DeviantArt Story1 year ago in Personal More Like This
As some of you may already know, this account of mine isn't the first time I've ever been on DA. I started out with the account :iconChenTheIrken:, an account to hold the artwork I created for my Invader Zim OCs. I was HEAVILY into Invader Zim at the time, and RP of it with very good friends with equally creative OCs was a gloriously euphoric escape for me... ^3^ But as time passed and my fandom for the show gradually subsided (I still love the show equally as much, but rarely RP it anymore), I started having more feelings about my very closeted ABDL side. I was discussing it a little more frequently to one particular friend of mine, :iconOliviaNettles:, a tad at her expense. I began lurking around DA for ABDL artwork, and that was when I

Now... some of you are thinking. What makes you qualified?
Ive been shot. Ive seen 3 students get killed. I lost my older brother. I take care of people at my school who need someone to talk to. Im someone who is always looking out for all of you. I may not comment on things often or be real active. But I do watch out for my friends. I want you all to know that I will always be here to talk to you. I barely ever sleep any more and I want to make sure my friends are doing ok. Everyone has there demons. I too have mine. Its what you do with them is what makes you. Dont let them create a mask for you to hide behind. Make them build you a proverbial soap box and stand upon it and dare to be different.
In a world of conformity, being different is a good thing to the contrary. Everyone is weird in there own way.
Why i dont like Bronies. Edited.Edited 6/15/2015Why i dont like Bronies. Edited.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ok no one seems to know why i dont like MLP or bronies, so heres an explanation.
The show is not for me, I HAVE WATCHED EVERY EPISODE OF SEASON 1 AND MANY EPISODE OF SEASON 2, and i while i cant really understand while people like it, i will try to avoid saying anything to you if you do like it. Its not more me, as it is not intended for me, it is made for children, simple as that.
I wouldnt have any problem with Bronies, if they stopped ponyfying everything. If they stopped making MLP references on things that have nothing to do with MLP. They are like Portal fans Every time cake is mentioned, someone has to say its a lie. Really stop saying it. People who are not fans of the show are all minding our own business when we see a fucking pony reference in the comments of a facebook update or a youtube comment. And dont say try to ignore it. If you are thinking about leaving a comment saying that, then you really need to take off you brony vision and look at life through
Terror wins.Son of a BITCH! SONY PUSSED OUT ON US!!!Terror wins.10 months ago in Personal More Like This
For f**k’s sake. Terrorists are not under your bed. They are not hiding around every corner. They are not in the seat next to you. The few that are out there only win if you start to think they might be.
In 2005, a gaggle of weak-minded twits blew themselves up on the London Underground. I and 1.2 BILLION other passengers per year still use it. Could another attack happen? Of course. But so could fire, flood, collapse or accident. You could get hit by a bus as you exit the station! There are a thousand-and-one terrible things that could happen to you today and, I assure you, unless you live in some third world sh*thole, the odds of a random yahoo causing you physical harm for political or religious reason is one of the least likely to occur.

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?!2 years 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.
Why you probably lose watchersI decided to write this because i get tired of people bitching and whining about "ZOMG I KEEP LOSING WATCHERS"Why you probably lose watchers11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Here's why you probably lose watchers
-They're sick of you
-They no longer like your art or what you post
-You don't talk to them or they don't talk to you
-They wanna be an ass
-You might be acting like a drama whore and they don't want to be apart of it
-Probably wanted watch backs
-You called them out
Really though complaining about losing watchers is stupid
We all loses watchers,friends,subscribers,followers,ect. Welcome to life grow the fuck up and get over it!
Even if a friend un watches you who ever said someone has to be watching you to consider you a friend? Exactly.
So next time you lose a watcher take these reasons into consideration.
Me personal i don't give a damn if i lose watchers.
So now if you excuse me i'm gonna play some Serious Sam HD

A handy tip if you haven't learned it before...Don't use social network/media sites as your source of news.A handy tip if you haven't learned it before...10 months ago in Personal More Like This
...Especially not Twitter or Tumblr.
For fuck's sake, this should be common sense already, so I honestly can't help but laugh and facepalm when people take Tumblr or Twitter or other sites seriously. Because those and the like are the most common places where misinformation and fake news run rampant. Or the news is heavily construed with opinions and not actual facts.
I cannot emphasis enough how much of a disservice you are doing to yourself by getting your current events from fucking Tumblr. Social media sites like Tumblr should be viewed as a place of opinions on current events...Not an accurate source of news about current events. Almost everything on that site is taken out of context or exaggerated like fuck and is heavily biased...Even more so than the mainstream news outlets. As someone else put it very well:
Yes, because the website that "
I don't even.... this is... bad...It gets worse. Recently I've criticized Autism Speaks and their dehumanizing ad campaigns, and I thought that that was as deep as the rabbit hole goes. But today I've learned of... something particularly disturbing. And what I've learned today may or not come up in my Mary & Max review, so I want to get the horror and the disgust and most of the disturbance out of my system. At the very least, I don't want to rant for 15 minutes what should only take up a few seconds in a cohesive review. And no, this article that I'm writing has nothing to do with the movie.I don't even.... this is... bad...5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Autism Speaks in the world's largest autism-focused charity on the surface, but deeper down they're kind of like PETA with a good reputation. I originally thought that that comparison was a little hyperbolic (non-sarcastic on "little"). What they essentially do is create dehumanizing propaganda towards people with autism(1) using rhetoric that, while it may not cause filicide, it at least empathizes with filicide* of disabled
