Parody vs Pastiche and other Humorous ExamplesJust for fun I thought I'd do a rundown of the most common forms of humor, their definitions, and examples. This is not a complete list by any means, but they are a list of many forms of humor and literature discourse which often get confused of mixed up.Parody vs Pastiche and other Humorous Examples1 year ago in Personal More Like This
An imitative work created to mock, comment on or trivialize an original work, its subject, author, style, or some other target, by means of satiric or ironic imitation.
Example: The movie "Airplane" is a parody of 1970's disaster movies. Many of Weird Al's music videos are parodies of other more famous music videos.
A work of visual art, literature, or music that imitates the style or character of the work of one or more other artists. Unlike parody, pastiche celebrates, rather than mocks, the work it imitates.
Example: The movie "Super 8" is a pastiche of 1980's adventure films, specifically imitating the style of Stephen Spielberg's early career,

This game asks the hard-hitting questions, like "what would happen if your toys came to life and wanted to bang you?" Just kidding. Kind of. But seriously, Nameless was so engrossing, so funny, and yet so unbelievably creepy that I haven't been able to get it out of my head for weeks. I plan to deal with this emotional overload by writing a massive review.
(TL;DR ahead. Also spoilers)
Nameless, à la Toy Story, takes place in a world where sentient toys exist. Unlike Toy Story, not all playthings in this reality possess consciousness - an unspecified (but presumably small) percentage have souls. From what I can surmise, there exists a secret group of toy-makers who can imbue their creations with a "spark of humanity", which ma

Shingeki no KyojinOh my God, you guys. I need to share my current addiction with you. Shingeki no Kyojin (literally, 'Advancing Giants', but translated into English as "Attack on Titan") is without a doubt the most amazing anime series I've seen all year. It's only 11 episodes in, so I can't vouch for how well it'll turn out, but so far it is spellbinding. The story is set in a world where the remnants of the human population live inside cities surrounded by enormous walls due to the sudden appearance of the Titans, gigantic humanoid creatures who devour humans seemingly without reason. The story centers around the life of Eren Jäger and his bff/stalwart protector/foster sis/possible secret admirer Mikasa Ackerman, whose lives are changed forever after the appearance of a colossal Titan brings about the destruction of their home and the death of Eren's mother.Shingeki no Kyojin2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Korra Season Finale, AKA Avatar Ex MachinaOK, I think I've calmed down enough to write a review now. Spoilers ahead!Korra Season Finale, AKA Avatar Ex Machina2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First, let's start off with what worked in the season finale. The animation was just...incredible, the action was exciting and sweeping in its scale, and Zuko's voice was reincarnated as General Iroh the goddamn determinator! which was actually kinda distracting, cause I kept expecting him to be like "I AM SO GOOD AT BEING GOOD!!. Hiroshi Sato showed his true colors as a hate-filled douchenozzle, and Asami showcased her usual class and determination when faced with truly shitty circumstances (on a side note, I've always had a hard time believing that Mr. Sato invented all those airplanes and mechas and stuff, because honestly, when we met him he kinda gave off a Henry Ford vibe, not an "engineering genius" vibe like that crazy eyebrow dude from A:TLA. But whatever, that's a minor point). And of course Naga was a badass...and according to tumblr, there are now people who ship Bolin x Naga. Just...why.

This is a good time to be a fan of Korra. No, I can’t tell you the release date at this moment, but I can assure you the announcement will be very soon. I just wanted to clear up some of the confusion and misinformation out there. It was originally announced that Korra would premiere “sometime in 2012” which was right on track with when we’d be ready to show it. Then right before the 2011 San Diego Comic Con, Mike and I learned that the network was going to push it back to 2013, which is what we reported at the panel. That was true for a time, but plans have changed again, as they are prone to do. So although I can’t reveal the exact release date here today, I can assure you all that Nickelodeon is not delaying the series or anything of the sort.In fact, they are putting their full support behind it.
You will see Korra as soon as it is ready to be aired, which is soon! I know it is e

Copying art, and why it's badFans copying other fans’ art and not giving credit has always been a problem in this fandom (especially with a few popular pieces that get copied over and over and over), but recently I’ve been seeing it a lot more often. A lot of people don’t seem to realize that copying is stealing. They didn’t trace or steal the actual artwork, so how is it stealing? Copying art without giving credit is wrong, and this is why:Copying art, and why it's bad2 years ago in Personal More Like This
When you copy someone’s art, you might not be stealing the actual drawing, but you’re stealing the artist’s original idea, their style, and the hours of work put into developing both of those.
Great artists make it look easy, but coming up with original ideas and developing a style is a long process. So when you think about the years the artist spent getting to their level, the thought they put into their ideas, and the hours of drawing and re-drawing, someone who copies their art and passes it off as theirs is stealing t
