Communities rely on Pillars made of HeartCommunities of all kinds are held up by pillars made of heart. Typically embodied by people who let the weight of their community rest on their shoulders, willing to let life be life. Sometimes it hurts, and sometimes it's comfortable. Regardless, the result is a halo that surrounds all participants in a community. The healing light of being mothered, fathered or cared for.Communities rely on Pillars made of Heart2 years ago in Personal More Like This
These are very special people who take this role in your community. Maybe this person is you. In which case, please be you today, and every day. Because you are very important.
For the rest of us, we all know who the pillars are that hold up the communities that we care about. We all know the value of what they do, especially when we stop to think about it.
There is nothing in life that I have ever found a deeper admiration for than people who take on this role. Pillars of Community. When a human being digs their heels in, claims territory and begins to show Love towards a group of people, they begin to embody
Floored.So I was just going thru a folder on my desktop that contains pretty much every single piece of fan art I've gotten since this whole pony craze began. And I sat back and stopped and realized - holy hell, this is just...amazing. I mean, every time I get something new, I am so flattered at the fact that somebody would want to take their time out to draw something for *me*. It boggles my mind, but I love each and every one of them...regardless of skill level.Floored.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just had a moment where I just felt completely moved with happiness at the thoughtfulness and generosity...and I just wanted to say thank you AGAIN to everyone and anyone who has taken time out of their daily lives to be creative and share that with me. It means the world.

Ok, can anyone tell me right now how putting a bunch of memes in a fan animation is even the least bit ‘controversial’?
To be honest when I saw the first half of Double Rainboom at Cloudsdale Congress back in March 2013
(yeah, that’s right, I was one of the first to see it, in yo faces!)I laughed hysterically at all the little gags and references they threw in there and I can speak for tons of other people who were laughing with me! No one got all angry or upset about that and this one guy went in front of the crew and jokingly bowed down to them like he was worshiping a false idol after the screening so I can say from experience that we found it to be anything but controver

Dat Season 5 premiere doe Spoilers~Dat Season 5 premiere doe6 months ago in Personal More Like This
I enjoyed it very much. I never really look forward to the MLP season premiere episodes, because I usually feel they have to cram a lot of adventure, plot, and characterization in too little a time slot. The only season premiere I'd really, really liked before this had been Return of Harmony. Otherwise, I prefer the finales to the season openers. But Season 5 has started off on a great foot. I loved the totally psychotic villain, Starlight Glimmer (how many name variants of "Twilight Sparkle" are we going to get? XD) and I found the cult parallels in the creepy little equal town to be fascinating, if suitably disturbing. And the little side character ponies were just adorable (lookin' at you, Party Favor, and your amazingly implausible balloon sculptures). It feels so good to have an episode of pony to look forward to every week again. Thoughts on the season premiere?

"We just went bowling, but then we had to go to trixie's magic show because Scootaloo accidently broke a table. notworry, the magic show was free." Applebloom added, seeing the worried look on Big mac's face. Applejack came down stairs "I heard Fluttershy upstairs, is she ok?" Big mac just replied "She dosen't want medicine." Applebloom blushed, then let out a small, nerovious but happy. "What is funny about Fluttershy throwing up?"

And speaking of which, they are apparently making Transformers Kreon minifigures that CAN ACTUALLY TRANSFORM!!! They have pieces that allow them to do it and not all are that great but they are little so having a very realistic and detailed alt mode isn't to be expected but they're still awesome and adorable! They've got some memorable characters coming like Galvatron, Bludgeon, Springer, Airachnid, Scorponok, Waspinator, and even more! And better than that, some of them can COMBINE!!! Yes, they have Devastator, Superion, Predicus, and Buticus! I'm so pumped for these, but there's just one little problem............they're blind-bagged... And of course there's the new

Hey guys! I haven't updated in awhile. I hope you are all getting your entries done and dusted. There is only a little over 2 weeks left in the competition.
Just to clarify, the competitions results will not be released on the 31st. This is when I stop accepting entries. I may make exceptions if it's only a couple of deviants but if not, then that's the cut off. I will give myself between 1-2 weeks to judge depending on whether or not I have enough cash to spare. It doesn't really amount to a lot, but I would like to attempt to have it t

Little Mac....What took you so long?!Not gonna lie, I was expecting this a long time ago. I mean, they had characters like R.O.B. or a monotonous Mr. Game & Watch in previous versions, and not one of the most iconic characters from Nintendo? C'mon guys, what was the matter with you?

Punch out!! is simply one of my favorites NES games of all time. I probably spent a whole afternoon trying to beat the game when I was a child, and I still remember the day I finally beat Super Macho Man.....but men! Even nowadays, I still can't beat Mike Tyson
Anyway, I'm glad Nintendo made a good choice, and we expect a good challenge with good ol' Little Mac..........you know: "Dancing like a Fly, Bite like a Mosquito!"

Merrick the Three-Tailed Fox
Reason: he's just such a cool Chara and the fact that he's the cousin of Tails make it even more nice ... and tons of fan art of him too. Mostly with Merrick comforting Tails, helping his injuries or watching a movie together when Tails falls asleep that's so sweet.
Lilly the Seedrian
Reason: :iconawwwplz: she's so cute, even if she's a yellow Cosmo but she's still adorable. sad that the relation with her and Knuckles ended but she's found someone new; my fc, Ethan the Albino Fox.
Shard, Zalem & Koso
(to Shard): she's a nice Chara but I wish she was a bit easier to draw.
(to Zalem): a hedgehog with wings, :iconawwwplz: need I say more about him?
(to Koso): he's cool, and fun if you treat him as a dog :iconteheplz:

Yeah, I know I was supposed to go to the electric brigade, but the budget cuts were too steep and the 1st class billets are completely closed shut...
No body is getting promoted...
I have no idea how long that will last but I'm not about to reenlist to find out!
Anyway, if all goes according to plan, I'll be leaving Japan (and the Navy) in early October of this year and will be looking for jobs again...
Oh who am I kidding? I'm gonna try out for American Idol, The Voice, The X Factor, and America's got Talent! (Hey, you never know until you try right? )
Anyway, I decided to upload a quick video of a few different singing techniques and imitations I've developed over the years, feel free to let me know what you think!

So yeah the next chapter in "All that is Fair Part 1" has been taking some time to complete. I am going to tell you why, it has been taking so frakkin long.
I last updated the story back in December during my last winter break from college. By last I mean that as the last winter break of my undergraduate career. After that I focused on completing my senior thesis. That included completing my experiments and writing up the results,write a grant, and I also prepared three different presentations of my work. This took me to Graduation at the end of May.
I know I should have put my story on Hiatus but I was scared that I would lose some you. I didn't complete drop the story I would work on it here and there. Then I had a little bit of time before my family, friends and fiancee showed up so I reviewed what i had done in those five months. To make it short I didn't like what I had written for
RulesI know, you don't like a whole bunch of rules. We've made them as simple as possible, and feel free to ask questions.Rules2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Here are the rules we want to establish in our group:
What will be the same?
New teams start out with two Pokemon. You can add more later.
The restrictions on the new teams of Pokémon will remain largely the same: unevolved Pokémon, unless a baby was introduced in a later generation, then you can start with a Pikachu and not a Pichu. Lucario cannot be a starting Pokémon; you must evolve your Riolu to have one.
No wildly different colored Pokémon, like blue pikachus or green sneasels. Variations of shade of a natural color are accepted, as are shiny Pokémon.
Starter accessories (don’t groan, there’s plenty of ways to get new ones): one per member, a simple single-colored scarf, ribbon, or bow.
We do allow previous teams in PMD-E to migrate over with no changes. You can keep your accessories, team members, and artifact
Putting yourself out thereThe Internet is the great equalizer. Household names used to be people we saw on TV, in movies, or writers of the most famous books and syndicated articles. Now, it's not strange for a YouTube personality, online cooking blogger, or comedy tweeter with a 9-to-5 job to be mentioned around the dinner table.Putting yourself out there8 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Often these online personalities are a lot more approachable online than celebrities for the simple fact that they engage with their fans. Sure, some celebrities are pretty good about replying on Facebook or Twitter, and, yes, submitting something to an ESPN anchor might get you a shoutout on TV, but for the large part, people who are active online want to talk to you, want to converse, want your feedback, and want to engage.
Kind of like in real life, sitting on the sidelines and cruising the Internet silently is a fine way to get information, but to get that real kindred connection, you need to participate. And, better than real life, you can delet
