Video Plans for 2012Hey guys!Video Plans for 20123 years ago in Personal More Like This
Long time; no talk. How are you all doing?
Since this year is the year of the apocalypse you can expect more Left 4 Dead 2 videos. I'm definitely thinking about making some Keith and Ellis derp videos. The current winning idea is 'How to with Keith.'
Oh, yes. Chaos shall follow.
I'm ALMOST done with a second Blame it on the Cosplay video; THE REVENGE. Seriously, this is so so so so much better than the first one. I really can't wait. The only reason I haven't uploaded it yet is because the contacts for Lestat haven't arrived yet. Once his part is filmed then it shall be up for your pleasure!
You can definitely expect more Marauders. These guys will have plenty more episodes and silly shorts to come.
What else is worth mentioning?
We -might- be filming a final special Sora Show video. This is only a possible at the moment. So don't get your hopes up too much. It might happen. It might not, however it is being talked about.

Personal LibraryQuite a few times I've been asked what books I like and could I suggest any good reads. Well, here is a journal with some of my top authors and books for you to consider.Personal Library3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I will start by saying that my two favourite genres are historical and gothic horror. I do deleve into fantasy, but generally I will only read a fantasy novel if it's not set in modern times.
I also tend towards first person and will not read a book if the protagonist is female. So brace yourselves!
SALAMANDER by Thomas Wharton.
This is my favourite book and for many good reasons. It is set in an alternative Victorian era, and follows the life of a book maker called Nicolas as he travels around the world trying to make an infinite book. (A book with no end and no start).
The narrative is overly colourful and the author takes full advantage of the readers senses, especially that of smell and sight. The short narratives play like a cinematic reel in the mind.
Overall, it's a book about books which contains some very hea

Once homeless Miami man earns a Masters degree
After several arrests, drug addiction and being homeless, a Miami man has overcome the odds to graduate from FIU with a Master's degree in social work.
Out of thousands of graduates, only one -- 50-year-old Aaron Alvin Sr. -- got a standing ovation at Tuesday night's graduation ceremony.
"I wanted to make sure I was in a position to help people and so I went ahead and got my Master's," Alvin said. "I just continued to pursue something that was bigger and better and ended up here."
Alvin was arrested several times for drugs, grand theft auto, and domestic violence. He was also homeless for a time.
He said he never,

Welcome to the project "Elf Christmas Wishes" - 2014. This one is differently themed project than Secret Santa's on DA you see around usually. I promote this project for several years now and get to see more people participating every time and being happy and fulfilled they did so.
Its all about... making a list. And see what will happen. For my part - I look for other lists and grant wishes every year. Each year I did this, I heard about more people being visited by an Elf/Elves.
Year 2014 starts quite early in comparison to the past ones - which should give more time to people to plan and prepare. I look forward to see your wishlists and stories about your experiences! Interested? Please scroll down!

FUNDRAISING!Hey all!FUNDRAISING!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
For those who haven't seen our latest video on Youtube, or check the blog on our NEW WEBSITE (www.parleproductions.webs.com), we're doing a new fundraiser !
Jenn and I, together with several others from our group, will be attempting a "24+ Hours Of Gaming" fundraiser, starting 6th April 2012, in support of the charity SpecialEffect!
WHO ARE SPECIALEFFECT?
"SpecialEffect is a charity dedicated to helping ALL young people with disabilities to enjoy computer games. For these children, the majority of computer games are simply too quick or too difficult to play, and we can help them and their parents to find out which games they CAN play, and how to adapt those games that they can't."
To see an example of the work SpecialEffect do, watch this video, showing Ella and Chloe, able to enjoy games thanks to the help of the SpecialEffect team! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=btHMqz-RpH8&featurelayer_embedded

Logo & Symbol Process TruismsIf you follow me and my work, you are likely well aware that I enjoy logo and symbol design. I don't consider myself the lord of logo design, as there are far more designers out there whom I idolize and have the process nailed down to a science, but quite frankly I think I've become pretty good at it over the years. So with a bit of time and experience under my belt, I wanted to share some truisms I've learned that I find in every one of my design projects.Logo & Symbol Process Truisms4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Almost without fail, the first idea you fall in love with will be one of your worst ideas. When you find you've fallen in love with a concept, let other people see it, and then take a break. Come back to the work a few days later and see what new directions you can head in.
Don't fall in love with your ideas. I say it but it's inevitable. You actually will always fall in love with an idea. But hey, TRY not to.
Simple symbols designed in 1 color work best. If you're designing in color when you start, you're making end-of-the-project

I figured this'd be a good time to all advertise one another. I'm currently working on a high-fantasy board that I'll share with y'all when I'm happy with it, but I'm interested in seeing where you guys (the ones who don't do it privately or via PM) roleplay.
So, reply in comments about where you RP, and what it's like!
Incidentally, how many of you would potentially be interested in joining an intermediate/advanced (i.e. 400word minimum posts) high-fantasy RP forum?

LOSE THE DUCKFACE ROUTINE! Most girls are great looking. And some are not so great looking, ok, but NO ONE is BETTER looking doing the muther funking duckface!
Most girls nowadays seems to be doing it, and let me tell you, there are few guys out there who enjoy watching pictures of girls who look like they're biting down on bathing-rings whilest trying to look hot holding the camera 50feet above their heads. Sorry
Now this is no major issue, but I've talked to alot of girls about this, and as most are to embarassed to even admit they are doing anything out of the ordinary on the pictures (....), some come clean and tell that they belive that its hot and that guys would like it.
I'm just here to pop your bubble gals. The only guys who might find the features shown in said photos are guys with tanning-lines above their bellybuttons and an overly wrinkled forehead that take pictures of themselves in their parents bathroom. An

Seriously, this holiday/convention has crept up out of nowhere. Although I'm hell'a nervous about the flight, I am excited about spending two weeks with a few of my crazy crew and of course seeing many new/old faces from across the seas.

On The Subject of LabelsOne of the recurring comments given in my previous journal was "Why do we need to label ourselves at all?", or words to that effect. There are many of you who believe NO-ONE needs a label.On The Subject of Labels4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I both agree and disagree.
I agree, because I think you're right that we don't need to define to ourselves what we are by putting a label on it. I shouldn't say to myself "I'm gay. Therefore, I only am attracted to women." I think that if, in your head, you have a defined, labelled view of what you are, you start conforming yourself around that label. I'm sure many of you have heard stories of men and women who came out, then later admitted to feeling pressured into staying gay because they'd defined themselves as such to so many people. Conforming yourself around a social definition like that cannot be healthy.
But at the same time, I disagree against the idea that we don't need labels in this world at all. We do need them... we just don't need to place extensive mean

Not because of copyright. I understand that when you post something on the internet, you're posting it for everyone to look at, and it's going to get shared around. But the comped-up piece of shit you see above (minus my commentary) is all over the internet - it's far more widely distributed than my original version. Back when I used to read my messages here and on Fetlife, I had 12-20 messages per day about stuff like this. Mostly it was people trying to be helpful and telling me "HEY! Look over here, there's another person who smeared shit all over your art!" And it used to take me an hour every morning to cut and paste URLs into DMCA requests to get this kind of crap taken down.
But that's really only the tip of the emotional iceberg for me. About 1 in 10 times that I post a DMCA I'd get a message from the perso
DC puss out.While at my local comic-book emporium, I had a quick leaf through Harley Quinn #0 to check out the winning page from DC’s recent talent search.DC puss out.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It didn’t do much to dampen the disdain I harbour for the big-name comic companies.
For a start, I’m not sure how that page was selected as the cream of the crop. Bravo to the artist for being selected, sure, but there were far more dynamic, lively examples I saw posted here on DA, and I'm genuinely surprised that none of them were chosen. The page selected feels just as stiff, stagnant, sterile and devoid of life as much of the other stuff DC discharges onto the shelves (which might have been why they ran with it).
The main gripe I have, though, is that they changed the final panel.
For those that (somehow) missed the whoo-haa that the whole talent search kicked off: the script DC provided to their would-be artists called for illustrations depicting the titular Harley trying to off herself in a series of absurd ways: holding

One of the questions I get a lot are "who do you buy ____ from?"
I always assumed that all sites were pretty equal,
but I recently have been, and still am, dealing with a dispute form a contact website,
they have broken their our rules but still refusing to refund the purchase,
and because of the way they worded the product paypal is refusing to step up.
I'm pretty burned,
and I know others have been screwed over,
or have had major problems from dealing with people online.
As well as people who have had amazing experiences.

Last chicken in Sainsbury's“Dirty Bird”, a fried chicken vendor in Wales, has been forced to defend its choice in logo:Last chicken in Sainsbury's11 months ago in Personal More Like This
Some rather prudish individuals have complained that it looks a mite dubious, while the owner of Dirty Bird has insisted that people are seeing what they want to see, and not what was intended.
It is claimed that the logo is simply the lower case initials of the company placed back to back in order to form the neck and wings of a cockerel.
Seeing one of Dirty Bird’s recent promotional images, however; one might be given cause to doubt their professed innocence.
And people ask why I like living on this spiteful little island
