The Hobbit: An Unexpected JourneySaw The Hobbit last night. It was very good... if a bit long. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for seeing all the little details interconnecting The Hobbit to Lord of the Rings and all that, but for the average watcher... eh... it kinda dragged. I overheard several people saying they fell asleep during the film, and I noticed more than once a number of people fidgeting and looking at their watches. Still, it's a damn fine movie and It's a shame we have to wait so long for the next two films.The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Having The Hobbit being written during the beginning of Lord of the Rings is pretty smart. You could effectively watch the 3 Hobbit movies and then immediately move right into the 3 Lord of the Rings movies. Kudos to Jackson for that, it'll be great to marathon run the two trilogies back to back.
This movie was, like the book, much lighter and funnier than The Lord of the Rings and I was surprised at how much from the books they actually kept. They

I'm changing my name.That's right. I'm changing my DA name.I'm changing my name.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've thought long and hard and have decided to change it toooooo.......
That's right; i'm one of the few artists here on DA that seems content with my name. That; and I think changing a "brand" simply because you can, after you've spent time and energy building up an audience is f**king stupid.
I've been here for years. I've operated on the internet under "jollyjack" for longer. If I changed that now it would be monumentally confusing to people that follow my work, which, in turn, would have an effect on revenue.
There are a ton of artists here whose work I keenly follow, and I think they're kinda shooting themselves in the foot by doing this.
Kinda reminds be of those little label-making things everyone's been given on at least one Christmas as a kid: you unwrap it, you find out what it does and you spend the rest of the day punching out new tags for everything. Even if they'
Mastering TypographyMastering TypographyMastering Typography2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Typography is a rather obscure field, which is quite odd because typography is in everything you read. As such, it’s very important for a graphic designer to know everything there is to know about typography and preferably also the history and anatomy of typefaces. Bad typography is usually only consciously noticeable by type geeks (like me), however even someone who knows absolutely nothing about typography will find text with bad typography harder to read. In this article you will learn some basic principles and features to advance your typography.
Before we have a look at the features to improve your typography we have to select the right software. A few features which will be discussed in this article can be used pretty much regardless of the software but for most things you have to use genuine design software, so a program like Microsoft Word won’t suffice. You can achiev
Elect the Delusional?The good Mr Romney has been saying that "The world wants to see new American leadership".Elect the Delusional?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well....if by "world" he means "Pakistan".....
....and I think that's probably down to Obama giving the greenlight to the operation that saw US Special Forces conduct a cross-border raid into Pakistan which resulted in a very dead Bin Laden. They're still kinda cranky about that.
Posted for no reason other than that it's really, really funny.
US Government denies existance of Mermaids>>>>http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-18692830US Government denies existance of Mermaids3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Really? I mean; really?
The US National Ocean Service had to make a statement that Mermaids do not in fact exist, after they were bombarded by enquiries regarding them in the wake of a programme aired by the Discovery Channel.
"Mermaids: The Body Found" was a work of fiction but was mistaken by a number of people to be a documentary.
I'm guessing they're the same people for whom warnings are printed on Harry Potter broomsticks, reading "Caution: Does not actually fly".......
PE: CSS3 101 - IntroductionPE: CSS3 101 - Introduction2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Hey there Devious CSSkinners!
First off, hover over the Title and Stamp to see some snazzy effects. That's the kind of stuff that CSS3 allows users to play around with. As I had been an Alpha Tester on devBUG, we had a few CSS3 privileges to test in Journal Skins in which several deviants had asked me "How did you do that?" and "Please share the code so we can learn" so I've been meaning to give a few lessons on CSS3 since forever and projecteducate has given me the opportunity to do so

Slowly, So Slowly A muffled cry took Zander from his book. He looked around wildly, and was on his feet in an instant when he heard a louder scream. A scream that sounded like his name. A scream that came from Aida's cabin. Maybe it wasn't practical for him to go to her, when Sky and Jace were both nearer, but he had never before been practical when Aida was concerned. He was out on the deck in a flash, the light in his cabin still on and the door swinging on its hinges because he didn't bother to shut it. Nothing in there held higher value to him than Aida's wellbeing.Slowly, So Slowly2 years ago in Personal More Like This
No one else had gone to her cabin. He rapped quickly on the door, praying something terrible hadn't happened.
"Aida?" he said hesitantly. "Did you just call me?"
She muttered something to herself from the inside, and then padded on bare feet—shoes made a very different sound—to throw her door open. Her eyes when they looked up at him were stra
i saw frozen and hobbit this week (spoilers)so here are my superspoilery opinions of these movies ---i saw frozen and hobbit this week (spoilers)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
just opinions, there is no more validity to them than to anyone elses
so, let's start with frozen....
i made a huge mistake before frozen...huuugeeee mistake.
i listened to that let it go song....
now, what follows is an example how one small thing can snowball into a huge friggin thing... see what i did there ? snowball?
so i listened to that song.. and ..um.. it sounded glorious... but it also sounded like an anthem to coming out of the closet.... i mean, i deal with subtext a lot. and even i have seen people see more in my own writing than i intended. rarely but it happened. so subtext is hardly a new thing ...
we are talking about a song that says
don't let them know don't let them see , be the good girl you always have to be
conceal don't feel don't let them know... well now they know...
and this is just some of it... there is this vibe of a sexual liberation in the s
Hey.You are beautiful.Hey.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
You are important.
And don't let anyone tell you otherwise.
On those days - the ones where you can't even cry because you've used up all the tears - just try to stop and think. Think about the people who do love you. Who do care for you so much that if anything happened to you, they wouldn't know what to do.
I just want to write this somewhere for people to see because goddammit, I know. I know how it feels to feel like you're in a constant black hole. I still do. And I have been for too long now.
But I will not give in because I know deep in my heart, someday it's going to get better.
If anyone ever needs to talk, I'll be here. It may take a couple of days to respond, but I'll try.
And why am I posting this?
Let's just say that something happened today and I felt compelled to reach out because I know that even a few words on a screen can make all the more difference in a person's life.

to all with gender identity issues.let me get this straight,to all with gender identity issues.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
i like being a girl.
i love being a girl.
I love wearing dresses and short shorts and blouses and bows and I love painting my nails and wearing make up.
I love having long hair and being able to do different things with my hair.
I love cute shoes and going clothes shopping,
and pretty much all the things that full under the "girl" stereotype.
I love being refered to as "she" and I love having female parts.
I love being a girl and I'm proud of being a girl.
but a lot of girls don't.
and a lot of boys don't like being boys, either.
and many of them decide to change that.
This is to all of the transgender/transvestite children who don't feel like they belong anywhere.
you do, i promise.
Whether you're FTM or MTF,
or if you feel like a mixture between the 2 or a girl on some days and a boy on others,
or maybe you don't even feel like a specific gender at all.
Or maybe you're questioning your gender.
you are a beautiful human being

*works from home*
Ascension 2, Sec 4 Trouble followed Aida like a bad smell. A large group of Eagles members were waiting for us down at the docks, trying to bully our location out of Captain Nina. They were no trouble picking off, especially since we had finally learned how to work as a team, and after an extremely disturbing message given to the only Eagle left conscious by Aida, we boarded the ship. Was it bad that, out of all of the terrible disturbing things Aida had told the member to relay, the thing that got to me the most was when she said Diego had a cute butt?Ascension 2, Sec 42 years ago in Personal More Like This
We had barely gotten out to sea before Tillie got herself drunk, and Jace was already leaning over the side of the ship, well-prepared to hurl anything left in his stomach into the ocean. I took some small pleasure in the green tint of his skin.
"So," said Aida, coming over to me, once again after talking with everyone else. I wasn't sure how I felt about being the last one she

A few years back, I spotted that someone had set up a page on Wikipedia about my webcomic, Sequential Art.
No; it wasn't my doing. If it was, the character names would have been spelt correctly.
I'd drop in from time to time to check out what people had added to this little article. It always gave me a giggle to read other people's take on my comic, and stoked the ego to think that someone actually gave enough of a damn about it to make the effort at all!
Alas; I've just discovered that the article has gone. Deleted by the Wikans (ooh. I like that) due to outdated links and leaving me with nothing to do while taking a dump but wind-up haters on /co/.
Guess I'd better get some new reading material in here.
