Miyazaki vs OtakuIn case you haven’t heard this, renowned Japanese animation icon Hayao Miyazaki was quoted as saying that the reason the anime industry is suffering is because it’s overrun with “otaku.”Miyazaki vs Otaku6 months ago in Personal More Like This
You can read the full article here: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2014-01-30/miyazaki/the-problem-with-the-anime-industry-is-it-full-of-otaku
Naturally, such a high profile artist such as Miyazaki coming down hard on Otaku has offended a lot of people and a bit of backlash has sprung up because of it. I’d like to try and reassure some of you that it’s not as bad as it might sound, and here’s why (please keep in mind this is from an American perspective).
“Otaku” in Japan is (or was) an offensive word, usually embodying the worse traits of obsessive basement dwelling collection completing socially inept geeks. It gained widespread negative connotations after the 1989 “Otaku Murders” carried out by Tsutomu Miyazaki (which are to

And it hurt like hell so Kuro came up and said "Trent! Don't hurt Creator!" And so he took over and it felt like heaven and Trent was like "pssh, whatever." And then Kuro stopped and then they started talking about shit and then some guy came up to me with an envelope and said "put these on the TV" and I was like "ok" and I went to a room with TVs and inside the envelope was eyeballs and I was like "AUGHHH" and then I turned around and I asked Samura Morgan "how do you put these on the TV?" And she said "pick them up and place them on the TV" and I was like "ok" so I start putting the eyeballs on the TV and then Rebecca Black showed up and her face was all warped and I was pretty scared so I walked out and I saw my parents in a movie theater and I walked out of there and saw Meatwad from Aqua Teen Hunger Force being chased by Mama, from that new movie, and then Kent and Turo tried to chase M

Hello, welcome to Dolling 101! We'll be going over all the basics that every beginner doller should know. There's a lot, so let's get to it!
Lesson 1: Terminology/Vocabulary
What is a Doll?
It might help to begin this article by telling you what you're reading about! A doll, or as we call them on DeviantArt, Digital Dolls, are small graphics, usually pixel-art, of people and characters. People create these by taking a base body another person has made, and creating art on it - designing clothes and hair, and turning the blank template into whatever kind of character they can imagine.
I will go over dolls more in detail, but that's the very basic description. Please, read on!
What is a Base?
Bases! You're probably familiar with this term. That's right, those pixel line-arts of bald/naked people that

ANOTHER THING THAT BUGS THE SHIT OUT OF MEJust because someone talks about Doctor Who doesn't make them COOL JUST BECAUSE THEY KNOW/WATCH ITANOTHER THING THAT BUGS THE SHIT OUT OF ME10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Everybody knows about Doctor Who and it gets annoying when everybody on the internet loves the shit out of it when it isn't that big of a deal.
I love Tumblr, but it's basically Tumblr's fault with all the fangirls that obsess over stupid shit that isn't even worth getting excited about.
To me, Doctor Who isn't that great of a show. I'll only watch it if David Tennant is on it or if I have nothing else to watch. There's a lot of great shows and Doctor Who isn't the one and only good show on TV.
Also, STOP MAKING WEREWOLF/VAMPIRE SHOWS. YOU'RE NOT EVEN TRYING TO BE BETTER THAN TWILIGHT.

Art thief is back:iconLilNekoKatz: still has yet to remove drawings that she traced or to post the links to the bases she has used. I thank the ones that helped me report this. If an account :iconThief-Anouncer: or similar will try to harass you, it is her, trying to intimidate you, so simply block it if it does. She also uses other accounts to intimidate people.Art thief is back1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I would feel ashamed people would bring this up so many times, and I would simply quit, or include the base or image I had inspiration from in the first place, and it would be different. But there is a big difference between tracing and getting inspired. Count the hidden comments on her "art".
There is no reason to even try to deal with her kindly. She knows what she does is wrong, but does not do anything to change the situation, even if you nicely try to talk with her about it, she will block you, so just silently report, without harassing or bullying.
If you have checked my last journal, I have posted a series of links with artwork she trac

2000's kidScrew being a 90's kid! the double 0's are where it's at!2000's kid8 months ago in Personal More Like This
being born in '99 I got little to no knowledge of what everyone else just a few years older than me know. Of course, up to the age of five I got to experience what I like to call the 90's trailloff. I know some 90's hits (fucking kidzbop cds, I even have the third one XD now there are like 40 cds of it now...) and of course the fucking tv. So I just wanted to list some things that would classify you as a 00's kid. ^^
You're a 00's kid if...
You hated having to rewind a vhs tape to watch your favorite movie over and over.
DVDs were so fascinating... it didn't have to be re-wound, and it had games on it! FUCKING GAMES!!!
You liked to play computer games at a young age.
The icecream pushups were the best food ever
Kids cuisine. That's all I have to say.
Camcorders were HUGE
You weren't allowed to watch half the old 90'd shows on tv
You loved spongebob/rugrats/american dragon or some other show you miss

What is Candy 'D factory?
Candy 'D factory is a roleplay group surrounding a factory that is in the sweet business, it is run by a small girl called 'Candi' and is about the factory's workers and everyone surrounding the factory. Their is more to come but all is unknown until I decide when to reveal it <3
What does 'sweet' mean on the Apps?
'Sweet' on the App means what sweet your character is based off, because the factory is full of sweets and wonderful cotton civilians, all unique in their own way - basically your characters appearance needs to be based off a sweet, anyone can have any sweet because their are thousands of sweets so none are to be kept to one person.
What occupations can characters have?
Characters can have any sort of job in the factory as long as no one has claimed it, once it is claimed and their isn't any other places open in the same area you will have to get anoth

Hours of work doesn't always equal skill
Look, I used to spend hours on stuff that, honestly, looked like complete shit
This, for example: http://mellow-match.deviantart.com/art/Gorillaz-OC-Red-217434495
I'm not saying that you're terrible if you don't make it into a group based on your skill level
And, again, I'm trying to be nice, but you should be mature enough to accept what is said and just work on improving so you can prove to whomever that you've got not only the skill, but also the will to be in groups like pixel gift groups
Groups like those are always going to be a bit pickier, since the point is to be making something nice for someone else, so they try to filter people accordingly
When they say, "You need to improve," they aren't saying that you suck and you should jump off a cliff and take your shit with you
They're just trying to keep each trade as even as possible with the skill levels of it's members
