We've found a hostWe're going to use longtail to host the episodes on our site. Longtail is the same web-host that derby.tv uses - it's a nice player that works across all platforms - smartphones and tablets included. So huzzah!
We'll be getting the episodes up and nicely embedded on our website over the weekend and we'll upload redirects on youtube soon.
For more information, read Greg's tumblr post: http://fimflamfilosophy.tumblr.com/post/41474238862/light-at-the-end-of-the-tunnel
Ok, as Greg pointed out below, I technically got the host wrong. WE are our host. The files are uploaded and streamed directly from our website. The Longtail player is simply the codec wee use to stream the content. So ya! That means WE control the content and can't have the videos taken down on a whim.
To see the player yourself, you can watch episode 12 now on our site: http://www.dawnsomewhere.com/mentally-advanced-series/mas-episode-12/
Blip is a no-goAlright, Greg heard back from blip. Their response is on our website: http://www.dawnsomewhere.com/2013/01/24/the-blip-verdict/Blip is a no-go2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Essentially, they said they wont be giving our account back. For those who submitted requests on our behalf, thank y'all for your support, but complaints don't change these policies unfortunately. While our stuff legally falls under 'fair use' laws, Blip has their own interests to look after and they don't have the time to verify everything. Essentially we're guilty until proven innocent, and the burden of proof is on us, the accused, not the accuser. That's just the internet landscape we live in nowadays.
That said, we will certainly find another method of hosting the mentally advanced series on our site; Y'all need not worry. If you find yourself going through withdrawals however and need to watch an episode of the mentally advanced series that is blocked you can download any/all of the episodes from the link posted on our forum here: http://www.dawnsomewher
Copyright crap...So ya, in case y'all haven't heard yet, Hasbro is cracking down on abridged videos. Both The Mentally Advanced Series and Friendship is Witchcraft have come under fire.

Today, our already created blip account was taken down too. So we can't use blip to host the mentally advanced series on our site atm. I'd ask, if you are willing, please take the time to help us out by submitting arequest form (http://support.blip.tv/anonymous_requests/new), telling them something akin to "give dawnsomewhere back their account and allow them to post".
Under url you can put our old account page: blip.tv/dawnsomewhere/
and for username you put our name: dawnsomewhere
We'll see if this works. If not, we'll just have to find some other way. Rainbow Dash Presents is fine btw - it's just the Mentally Advanced Series.

It is with great pleasure that I announce the release of Ponyscape v0.2! This is the continuation of my work on tweaking Inkscape to add new features and make it more user friendly! This new version adds a few very useful features, and updates the base to the latest revision of Inkscape. I also was able to fix a few bugs and submitted a patch to upstream Inkscape (which got accepted!). I've been working on this version, and have been concurrently working on a couple of vectors which I will hopefully get around to uploading soon.
I have compiled binary packages for both Windows and Linux Mint 14 (should also work on Ubuntu 12.10). To use, download the zip file and extract it wit

1. When did you start drawing?
I started drawing when I was... maybe six or seven. I was really young. And I had been going through lots of surgeries on my legs so I had little else to do. I took up drawing because it was fun, and gave me something to pass the time while I was in casts. I liked the PPG (Powerpuff Girls) style so I drew a lot of that. I also remember a time when I drew stills from Sonic the Hedgehog the Movie (OVA). I'd pause the TV and sit and look at the screen off and on, sketching the characters out. I was really proud of them, too. I did a couple of Tails and Sonic. I lost the papers, though. >.<
2. Why did you join DeviantArt?
I honestly don't remember how I came across the site. But I wanted to find a place where I could share my art with others and keep better track of it. I joined simply because it was a free, easy-to-use website that seemed the most

You are free to pay for the commission before or after its completed. Although I prefer before.
I have the right to deny your commission if it is too complicated for me. Sorry!
Please do not rush me while I'm working on your commission! I am a huge procrastinator. If you have a deadline you'd like it done by you can let me know, but set the deadline at least 5 days away from the date you commission.
I will only take 5 commission slots at once. Once those slots are filled they'll be closed until all of the commissions are complete.
When you commission me, send a me a note with information about what you would like. Please give me clear references!
I do point commissions and paypal commissions. For paypal commissions, note me for my email.

Fluttershy, you clever girl!I just read this article on being persuasive on Lifehacker: http://lifehacker.com/5982658/but-you-are-free-is-a-super%20simple-persuasion-technique-anyone-could-useFluttershy, you clever girl!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are lots of techniques for becoming more persuasive, but perhaps the simplest, most practical technique is the "But You Are Free" method. A review of 42 psychology studies (on 22,000 people) suggests this technique could double the chances someone would say "yes" to you. Read on to see how this works. If you want to, that is.
See what I did there? That's the "But You Are Free" technique, basically: Make a request, but acknowledge the other person has a choice.
This is so Fluttershy's technique! She's a mastermind of manipulation! You have to believe me. Or don't believe me; it's up to you.
This fandom is dead - Equestria GirlsSo, with the Equestria Girls trailer out, which I linked below, it seems that everyone is out making journals with varying degrees of want. So here's my 2 bits about this whole thing. Also the title is misleading so it'll make you click it and see me whine! Which I won't do, WUAHWUHAEHAHUWEA.This fandom is dead - Equestria Girls2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So, my general opinion of this is really good. It's actually super good! Much better than I expected/hoped for, especially given the atrocious abominable designs shown a while ago:
The good news is that it looks like they removed the awful face tattoos, the ridiculously long hair that looked like tails and the wings on Twi and RD. The bad news is that AJ still doesn't have pants and the coloured faces just look weird. The animation is great however, with facial expressions (and of course voices) definitely reminding us of the ponies we all know and love, not to mention the huge improvement over the still soulless original designs we saw a while ago.
As for the trailer itself, the story seems to be
OC cameos for upcoming Aurora ShortHey guys! I got the audio for the new Aurora short 'Investment Losses', so I'm gong to start working on it soon.OC cameos for upcoming Aurora Short2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm going to need a lot of pegasi to fill Cloudsdale with.
Leave OC cameo requests in the comments below - be sure to include a link to a picture of them. (don't be posting OC creator codes and expect me to include your OC that way - just screen-shot it and post it on imgur.com.... it's not that hard guys...)
They have to be pegasi (no alicorns, mud ponies, or master race ponies)
Also, I may not be able to use everybody's OC, but I'll try to include as many as I can. Just a word of warning tho - if it's too "edgy" looking, I may not use it - i don't want the background characters to be distracting.

The Monster in the MirrorSimon stood in the bathroom of his apartment, staring at the mirror, and made mental notes of every change in his appearance. The face staring back at him was like a stranger to him, and he was disgusted by it.The Monster in the Mirror2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
Simon rarely ate these days, so now his face was gaunt. That, along with his sickly, greyish-blue complexion, made him look like a corpse. His thin face also made his milky white eyes and the long, grotesque nose stand out even more. His hair was now almost completely gray, no longer showing any hint of the dark brown it used to be. It framed his face like a dreary curtain. He had long given up on taming it, just as he had his beard. His hair grew at an unnatural rate, and by now, no matter how often he shaved and cut it, it was hopeless. Even his teeth were different; weeks ago, he lost each tooth one by one, and they were replaced by longer, pointed, shark-like teeth.
As much as it pained him to say so, there was a part of Simon that was glad Betty left before she could see wh

"Kiriban" is a word that lots and lots of people use, especially here on Deviantart. Get the pageview hit, get a gift. however...
most people in general know what it is, but not what it means -> http://forum.deviantart.com/devart/general/977173/

so I googled "キリ番":
and found out that キリ番 is actually a shorten version of「きりのいい番号」
