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.

Expiration DateI love the Team Fortress 2 short movies. They're like little Pixar films......just with violence, blood, dismemberment and a general disregard for health, safety and human life.Expiration Date1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Usually they're quite brief, but the latest to surface is a whole 15 minutes. Positively feature-length!

How to interview a politician.A tiny snippet from Jeremy Paxman's interview with Silvio Berlusconi.How to interview a politician.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Some might not know who Berlusconi is: he's a media tycoon, 3 time Prime Minister of Italy and is generally regarded as the face of political vice and corruption in Europe.
Many won't know who Paxman is: he's the brick that the BBC throw at people like Berlusconi. His questions being so blunt that it's nigh on impossible to wriggle out of answering them without looking more of a prat than you did at the start.
I'm pretty sure that Paxman also hates that fact that you, whoever you are, share the same planet as him:

It was revealed earlier this month that CNN had in place an “ultimate closing message” in the event of the apocalypse actually arriving (and there being enough time to change the tape). It was footage of a military band playing “Nearer My God to Thee”:
This.... would have been a really crap thing to permanently sign out on.
The BBC obviously thought so, too, as in light of that story they asked their readers/listeners what they would like to hear played across the service, should doomsday occur.
Most responses were musical numbers, such as REM’s “It’s the End of the World as we know it (and I feel fine)” and Queen’s “Don’t stop me now”, but other’s were a little more deranged, such as the final clip of a Warner Bros cartoon, with Porky Pig saying “That’s all folks!”.

The Great Games Drought of 2014I don’t know whether it’s because games were faster to produce through the 90s or if it was simply because, as a kid, you CAN’T buy every game you want to play, but there always seemed to be something new on the shelves back in the day. You could never walk into a game store, look at the shelves and find nothing of interest.The Great Games Drought of 20141 year ago in Personal More Like This
That’s what it’s like at the moment, though.
Over the last few years, I have become used to there being a couple of months where there are no new game releases (of any note, at least – there’s always plenty of chaff), but 2014 seems to be the worst it's ever been. You can go into a game store, look at the shelves and actually think “I’ve played everything”.
As a gamer, this is kinda depressing. More so given that there’s nothing on the horizon that I’m looking forward to. Most of the “Next-Gen” games are being released on Current-Gen machines, so there doesn’t seem to be a poi
Why Borderlands Worked.The original Borderlands is one of my favourite video games, so much so that it inspired me to return to writing futuristic science fiction science fiction, something which I hadn’t done since the 90s.

Having played through both Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel, I’m not entirely sure that either Gearbox or 2K really knew themselves why Borderlands worked, because both additional entries into the canon failed to grab me in the same way.
Here are the reasons why I thought Borderlands was great, and why it’s sequels weren’t.

There are very few games that set the scene as perfectly as this. In just under 2 minutes, you know everything you need to: Going by that weird dog-thing, Pandora is an alien planet. The crusty looking billboard suggests it’s a frontier world which p

Negative waves.A few people are whining amid the comments that I’m being negative about recent movies and video games.Negative waves.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Well, kids, I’m negative about them because: they’re crap. Not in a “oh, everything was so much better in the olden days”, view-through-rose-tinted-glasses, “I don’t like new things”, luddite’s view “crap”. I mean they’re flat out sh*t.
I’ve played a hell of a lot of games and watched a hell of a lot of movies. There is quality out there in spades, all of it providing comparisons for us and benchmarks for them to aim for. The problem is that, recently, all that good seems to have been looked at…..and then studiously ignored.
THAT’s why I rage on about this stuff. That, and the apparent apathy of the collective masses who are quite happy to bend over, take the endless mediocrity and pay for the privilege.
Nothing seems to be fun anymore. I used to leave the cinema with a spring in my step, the s

Jedi just aren't interestingSo, the full title of Star Wars VII has been announced and, while I am still all hyped up about a brand new Star Wars flick (one that Lucas has nothing to do with, at that), I’m not all that keen on what it suggests.Jedi just aren't interesting1 year ago in Personal More Like This
“The Force Awakens” is right up there with “Return of the Jedi” and “Revenge of the Sith” in that it implies a focus on the hokey religion; in my mind, the most boring element of the Star Wars movies and what always seems to be the focus of Star Wars video games these days.
When we otherwise see epic space battles and Machiavellian plots, I just hate it when things cut to a pair of guys in bath robes talking very slowly about how everything of f**king interest leads to the f**king Dark Side. All they seem to want to do is sit in a beige room on space-futons. It’s just dull.

I would like to state how community flow is really important for me. No, not only for me but to many people. Just many people aren't aware of this.
I think the interactions between the artist and watchers - and whole community relationships thing - is one of the most vital parts that our creations exist. Writers have fans, travelers, artists, illustrators, companies, fashion bloggers etc. and so on. You may call it as a "fanbase", thus I prefer to not call because "fans" and "fanbase" has a lot of negative stereotypes and image about blindly screaming "minors". I'd prefer to name differently, because I do not view them as minors. Absolutely. I view them as an every worthy human on equal worth as the creator and that's a fact. They are just guests to

There's no such thing as a gigantic mechanical robot fighting off alien monsters. There has never been a report of a man being bitten by a radioactive spider and becoming a hero. You can't summon a mini-tornado at your own beck-n-call, don't matter how much into the occult you are. The odds of a young male teenager having a harem of sexy girls at his every turn is nil. There aren't bipeds of animals that are supposed to be quadrupeds flying spaceships in the galaxy above us. You can't legally hunt and catch thousands of different animals and use them to protect you from other animals and people in a sports-like venue. You can't eat a flower and ignite fire from your hands.
I can go on and on... this journal is probably being expressed because of recent built-up distaste for people bullying others because of what they like when it comes to fiction.

Two months and eight days, 64 chapters plus an epilogue, 134 single-spaced typewritten pages, 74478 words and countless hours later, Everlasting Snow has finally come to a close.
And, to tell you the truth, I have no idea where to start.
Let's start just over a couple months ago, with a girl, a laptop, and a movie. One that changed her life. For the better. One that connected with her on such a deep level that no amount of writing or creating could get it out of her system, and never will. One that revived her love of writing, something she hadn't done in years because it never gained any recognition, she never felt it was good enough, and life events just left her feeling so trampled upon, further deterring her from putting the pen to the paper.
And so, never before so inspired and just recently discovering the world of fan fiction, she opened her laptop, brought up Microsoft Word, and began to write, not helping but feeling that a certain winter spirit (th

It’s all being taken very seriously by certain parties. Some scientists have approached the UN and asked for the issue to be addressed in a more formal capacity, with a hope that laws against these machines taking certain roles will be put in place. Specifically “killer robots”. They don’t want to see a machine deciding when it’s right to pull the trigger.
That concern is perfectly understandable, but there’s another that is less touched on: are robots getting too cute?

Lovely and quite happy way to start off a journal entry, yes?
Anyway. I just thought I'd do a quick little update.
After I finally decide to make the stamp for my contest winners (it's been thought out and finalized, but I've been too busy and a little too lazy to actually do it), I'll probably start up on a drawing that's been begging to be drawn for a pretty long time. That, and I'll continue to write "Amongst the Moon and Frost." Especially because writing it is so therapeutic for me. I thank all of you who have read it and for the support that you've been giving me, it means the world and more to me.
I have a feeling, though, that I won't be continuing "Sleep Tight" for a pretty long time. I'm really sorry to all of those who are dying to know what happens next. I promise I'll get back around to finishing it though. I have this fantastic idea for it and really want to keep writing about Nightlight but "Amongst" is taking priority right now
