Reflections and PredictionsI'll start by talking about a topic we're all familiar with: technology.Reflections and Predictions1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Now, I don't know about you, but I'm quite happy with technology these days. My computer does everything that I want it to do, at a pretty good speed; my Dad has a fancy camera, but more importantly, he lets me use it; then there's various other gadgets of the 21st century, like 3D TVs and smartphones, and they're all pretty awesome.
And yet, it is often the case that we look back into the past, at, say, my parents' generation. They didn't have the luxury of computers, their cameras relied on film instead of pixels, and things like 3D were unheard of. Compared to our current living standards today, it's easy to think that life was 'hard' back then - but they lived through it quite happily. Perhaps, while they were writing letters instead of texts, they felt grateful that they had a postage system at all. In fact, they probably felt the same way as I do now: "Wow, we have this fancy new stuff like trams. It must've

Thanks muchly for all the birthday messages! A total of five people sent me the Arrogant Worms Happy Birthday song, which is a new record! (In case you're unaware, this is the song I send to everybody on their birthday.)
Anyway, I've had a very eventful three weeks, but after each day I kept wondering, "Is this journal-worthy? Hm... nah, I won't bother." That included a two-day engineering course, receiving a Gold Award at the National Concert Band festivals (as part of an ensemble, of course), and four days' work experience at Rolls-Royce. The past two days, however... I feel I'm obliged to write about them, no?
I'm seventeen now! Raaagh! :iconweekenddanceplz:

I should probably provide some back story instead of just spazzing out. I received the Premium Membership via a deviantArt promotion. This promotion involved asking people who already had Premium Memberships to suggest a friend who was worthy of one, and as a result both would receive a 1-year Premium Membership. Well, *3rdeye88 very kindly did the honours, and look at us now!
I've turned on Critiques for my MOCs that I deem to be 'worthy', which is essentially the recent stuff from my Bionicle MOCs gallery. I've also turned Critiques on for and
I've realised that virtually everything I write in my journals has something to do with me personally; I haven't talked about a random topic in a long time. Well, here goes.
Everybody likes snow, rightSnow before Halloween.Everybody likes snow, right2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Everyone in New England sure loves snow.
Boy do we love snow. We love it so much we get it while the trees still have leaves on them, thus weighing down the branches and causing even thick branches to snap off and crash to the ground, young saplings to bend over so their branches nearly touch the ground, and power outages across the town. Luckily, I've been spared the last of that triplet. For now. We'll see how long that lasts...the lights have been flickering for a while now. And it's been snowing here since around 11am and it hasn't let up.
We sure do love snow here.
Pokemon X and YOk, I saw the video and wow, its just... beautiful :') it's the type of Pokemon game I've been waiting for to see. However at the same time I feel so sad because I don't have a 3DSPokemon X and Y4 months ago in Personal More Like This
You'd think I'd have the money soon with my b-day just a week away, but think again, I'll be lucky to get $60 let alone the $150+ needed for a 3DS. I may be turning 16 but we still aren't rich enough to do stuff like that, as I've said to my friend "I'm lucky to have even $20"
But I don't know whether to be happy because of the new Pokemon game or cry because I can't play it. Also it was brought to my attention that apparently there are now a total of 666 existing Pokemon, can someone say creepy-pasta? (:

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

Flight of the faverunnersWow, 600 watchers. Very much appreciated, every one of you. I thought this would be (arguably) a suitable time to discuss deviantArt statistics and so-called 'popularity'.Flight of the faverunners8 months ago in Personal More Like This
On one hand, the maths nerd in me loves the numbers. Statistics are unquestionable, virtually tangible and coldheartedly true. Anyone can view them and know that they're free of bias, and it gives a superficial indication of where that person fits in the world. It allows me to compare what I like with what the general public likes. In fact, I don't feel the need to defend this half of the argument. It's maths; it works, and that much should be obvious.
On the other hand, of course, there are the countless social aspects that numbers simply cannot handle. How much publicity has this person had? Are the stats an accurate indication of the artist's skill? Does 'popularity' even matter at all? Allow me to briefly focus the spotlight on a certain mythical creature of mine:

Which has nothing to do with this poem, it's just something I've wanted to tell people about it.
"A gentle question jokingly intended,
A memory in comic placement,
But deeply placed another question is asked in place,
A question aimed at true intent,
Of feelings deep and unexpressed,
Be they unrequited,
Or felt all the same,
The question never asked for fear of answer,
But still the question lies within me,
And slowly rips at my seams,
Letting all of the stuff that is myself slip away,
But still my question remains unanswered,
For it was never asked,
But hope still remains with me,
The last thing to fade through the seams,
Only that and the question remain."

Poking FunPokéFunPoking Fun2 months ago in Personal More Like This
People seem to love to jump to conclusions. If there's one thing I want people who visit my page or read my comics to understand, it's this: If I poke fun at something, that does not automatically mean that I HATE it.
I'm restating that now because it came up again recently in the "Nintentroll" comic. People seemed to think that because the comic is making fun of certain pokemon that means I am decrying the whole series or somehow personally insulting those who actually do enjoy the specific examples I used. Let me reassure you, I am not.
I guess I just want people to lighten up and not always be in such a defensive mode all the time. Everyone has different likes and dislikes and if I don't like something or happen to poke fun at something you do, that does not mean I am personally attacking you and there's no reason to be so knee-jerk defensive about it. This goes for everything I do beyond the "Nintentroll" comic as well. If I poke fun at a movie, or video game, or spe

Tired of the Video Game IndustryWith the PS4 on the way, the gaming industry is alive once again reminding us how dull and boring and... wrong... it is. Here's a quick summary of some of the things I'm sick to death of hearing about when it comes to video games.Tired of the Video Game Industry3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Polygones = Emotion
I'm sure you've all seen the jokes, but this one stems from David Cage, who gushed over the tech demo of an old man's face for the PS4, remarking about how the only way to get "true" emotion is by bridging the uncanny valley with high resolution models, hi-def textures, and realistic shaders. "True emotion" of course can't be found in books, TV, or cartoons because none of those things can depict the exquisite details of a wrinkled face in true HD glory. I'm sorry to say this, David Cage, but if I can get an emotional response out of 16-bit pixel sprites from Chrono Trigger, or a pictureless book... your logic is faulty.
I'm really getting tired of everything wanting to connect to everything else. I know
