BatmathI enjoyed the Nolanverse Batman films a lot, but I've just run the numbers:Batmath2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Bruce trained for 7 years (Alfred mentions his absence in Batman Begins) and he sulked for 8 years between Dark Knight and Dark Knight Rises. Between that, and including the short time in Dark Knight Rises in which he wore the cowl, Nolanverse Bruce was only Batman for about a year, tops (Joker's line "Let's rewind a year" tells us this).
One. F**king. Year.
"Caped Crusader" the Nolanverse Batman is not.
He is "Bat Temp".
Nothing to see, here.There are only a handful of names on my “block” list. You have to have been a monumental prick in order to earn yourself a place on it. I don’t hide negative comments about my work nor do I block people that write them. It’d make the world a very boring place if you edit it to show nothing but praise. The barbs are what make it interesting and provide points to debate and/or argue.Nothing to see, here.8 months ago in Personal More Like This
I monitor content on DA via “browse” as it changes regularly and has work that the community thinks to be high quality. It’s generally where I spot artists whose material I want to see more of. Over the past few days, though, after posting a response to DA inexplicably choosing the letter “Z” to be their logo, people mentioned that the “Super Pretentious” cartoon had surpassed DA’s own “Boldly” journal on the “What’s Hot” list. Thinking that to be funny as hell, I switched to “What’s Hot” t

Oh, not again....Argentina is getting frisky over the Falklands again. I've no idea if it's just political bluster; a box for the Argentinean leadership to stand upon and rant about so that they can look strong in front of their people, or if the oil reserves in Falkland waters are providing motivation for renewed claims.Oh, not again....3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There are lots of little specks of land around the world that still fall under post-Imperial British control. That many consider these outposts to be tired relics of the Empire is irrelevant: the people that live on them consider themselves to be British citizens and have voluntarily chosen to remain loyal to the United Kingdom. As such, the United Kingdom is obliged to do all it can to ensure their security.
This is the case with the Falklands.
I'm not quite sure what other agenda the Argentinean government thinks the Royal Navy has in sending HMS Dauntless into the region.

World War 3 may just be months away, with much of the middle east currently being blown apart by missiles and the locals setting their neighbours on fire, but the real news is that the Twinkie, the USA's primary contribution to world cuisine, could cease to be.
"You eat those?" I hear people ask. Hell no. Never eaten one in my life. There's something about their unnatural, chemical-yellow colour and that they have a half-life rather than a use-by date that just sets off one too many alarm-bells.
In fact, I'm pretty sure that if you read the print on the pack, you'll find asbestos to be a key ingredient.
Even John McClane can't keep one down, and he took out a building full of terrorists with nothing but his bare feet and a Santa hat.
Which leads to my point: Without the Twinkie, there are SO many lines from SO many classic movies that future generations just a

I've thought long and hard and have decided to change it toooooo.......
That's right; i'm one of the few artists here on DA that seems content with my name. That; and I think changing a "brand" simply because you can, after you've spent time and energy building up an audience is f**king stupid.
I've been here for years. I've operated on the internet under "jollyjack" for longer. If I changed that now it would be monumentally confusing to people that follow my work, which, in turn, would have an effect on revenue.
There are a ton of artists here whose work I keenly follow, and I think they're kinda shooting themselves in the foot by doing this.
Kinda reminds be of those little label-making things everyone's been given on at least one Christmas as a kid: you unwrap it, you find out what it does and you spend the rest of the day punching out new tags for everything. Even if they'

I’m rather irked that anyone would think that, after all this time, I would actually plagiarise anything. Parody for the sake of comedy, sure, but not flat-out copy.
Let me tell you what I know: the creative process grants you access to infinite possibilities. As such, I have never, ever felt the need to copy someone’s work. If I am aware of something that exists, I veer away from it. Partly because it would just feel wrong to steal someone else’s ideas, but mostly because….it’s boring! I get a kick out of devising new things. It’s one of the most enjoyable and satisfying endeavours you can pursue.
''Sequential Art'' CompetitionMy webcomic, Sequential Art, is 10 years old. I started it back in June 2005.''Sequential Art'' Competition2 months ago in Personal More Like This
As a little celebration, I thought I’d run a contest (something I’d actually been meaning to do for a while).
It’s fairly straightforward. There will be two top prizes, each awarded to the best of the following: The best image (best art wins. Simple) and the funniest image (Art quality isn’t as important as the idea behind it).
To be in with a chance of winning, all you need do is draw something related to the Sequential Art webcomic. It could be a single character, multiple characters, your own strip, anything. Draw it and post a link to it in the comments section of this journal.
First prize for each of the two categories is:
A copy of Sequential Art Volume 4
A print of the 10 year image (seen below)
A free commission (colour. Single character)
There will also be 10 runners up (total), each of whom will

How to read the news.Any time I pass comment on world events, especially if that comment is negative toward the actions of a foreign country, I get the same replies: “Your media is lying to you”, “It’s all propaganda”, etc.How to read the news.5 months ago in Personal More Like This
I promise the people that said all that: I’m just as paranoid and untrusting of the world as you guys, which is why I question everything before opening my mouth.
There is constant talk of conspiracy and media manipulation, and I believe that it does occur, but it is not as long lasting as it was prior to the dawn of the digital age. In the past, information could be controlled very easily, but now, with everyone who owns a phone being a potential source of news, the truth will surface much faster. Lies are now exposed within hours, not decades.
Within the comments of a recent deviation I made mention of how I assess information, but it probably go lost so I shall repeat it here: I don’t just look at one news source, I study three. The BBC, RT a

Joke news network Fox was clearly so caught up in it all that they went into full reality meltdown, claiming that parts of Britain had become no-go areas for non-Muslims, and that “Muslim Religious Police” were patrolling parts of London, attacking anyone who did not conform to Islamic law.
Birmingham, they said, was a city populated purely by Muslims, and people not of that faith just didn’t go there…..which was news to me. I live just outside it, I venture in on a weekly basis and, as far as I am aware, I am not a Muslim.
The, clearly bat-sh*t, journalist that made these insane accusations was immediately pointed to and laughed at by, well, everybody, and went on to apologise for his “terrible error”.

Okay, so...here's an interesting development. I got a call-back earlier this month from Kroger, a grocery store about 4 minutes from my house. They wanted to hire me as a part-time bag boy. Which....is a bit degrading, but hey, I'll take what I can get at this point. So I went in, had my interview, everything was aces. Filled out the forms for a background check, did the drug test, and waited.
...right. I called up there. They got the drug test back, and everything was good with it. Buuuut nothing on my background check. So, I go online to check my credit report. Apparently, mine and my father's were crossed over. I guess cause we have the same name? But that makes no sense, since our SS numbers are completely different. So, me and my mother, who knows more about this legal mumbo-jumbo than I do, decide to head out and find the answers.
AND SO THEIR QUEST BEGAN!!

It's back! Last time, I selected deviations because of how close it was to Halloween/All Hallow's Eve/Whatever You Wanna Call That Spooky Holiday That You May Or May Not Celebrate. This time? I'm just gonna select deviations for any reason whatsoever! No theme required.
For those of you who may be wondering, there is a method to my madness. As I said before, I select deviants on how long they've been here and how many pageviews they have. Here's my official formula:
amount of years x 10k = max amount of pageviews allowed to be featured
So if anonymous has been on deviantART for 4 years and has less than 40,000 pageviews, they qualify to be featured. (Unfortunately, anonymous has been around for 9 years and has 240,000 pageviews, so he can't be featured. Also, I caught it!) Keep in mind, there are
The AvengersYou know that giddy, gleeful feeling that renders you incapable of doing little more than giggle like a lunatic?The Avengers3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I pretty much had that from start to finish during the Avengers film (Which was released on Fair Blighty's shores as "Avengers Assemble" thanks to the past efforts of Steed and Peel).
There have only been a handful of movies that invoked that kind of response in me: Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Abram's Star Trek, Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes and the first Iron Man film are those which immediately spring to mind.
Indeed; Avengers is THE best Marvel movie since Iron Man. Ace cast, brilliant story, hysterical script, a scene that will stab anyone that's followed the films leading up to this point right through the heart and a fair few more surprises.
Chief among them being; how the hell did the Hulk become such a f**king awesome character after so many naff films?
I'm gonna go see this one again!

For f**k’s sake. Terrorists are not under your bed. They are not hiding around every corner. They are not in the seat next to you. The few that are out there only win if you start to think they might be.
In 2005, a gaggle of weak-minded twits blew themselves up on the London Underground. I and 1.2 BILLION other passengers per year still use it. Could another attack happen? Of course. But so could fire, flood, collapse or accident. You could get hit by a bus as you exit the station! There are a thousand-and-one terrible things that could happen to you today and, I assure you, unless you live in some third world sh*thole, the odds of a random yahoo causing you physical harm for political or religious reason is one of the least likely to occur.

I'm going to try and make it a habit of picking out my favourite Sonic fan art of the week to give artists some extra exposure in the community. There may be more than one pick per week but I'll try not to go nuts with it! lol For my usual favourites of non-Sonic art, go check out my Favourites folder.
This week I'd like to pass on the exposure to :iconMyly14: for her drawing of Sonic and Shadow (zombie inspired atmosphere). Can you see who else is in the picture?
