Winter Contest 2013 *journal update*Update- New entryWinter Contest 2013 *journal update*2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Well might as get some work done since I'm home :/ Anyway I just read this journal someone wrote and they brought up a good point on art trades. People were taking advantage of her and not doing their share *i know I've been both of those sides and it does suck no matter what end you are*
So I've come to the conclusion that if I do an art trade with someone, I won't put on my part until both parties have confirmed they're done that would be easier I'm sure so no one has to feel like they're getting used anyway, I've got things to do ^^
And thus begins the first 2013 Winter Contest!
I've personally been engaged in the wonder that is..you guessed it!

Damn it, Loki, I swore to myself I wasn't going to fall for you no matter how awesome and handsome and badass and deliciously evil you are. I swore I wasn't going to be that fangirl that dreams of petting your hair and being your evil queen. I swore I was just going to like you for being an awesome villain and not add you to my list of late night fantasies. Damn you for being so ridiculously attractive. DAMN YOU STRAIGHT TO HEL, YOU MAGNIFICENT BASTARD.
Oh, and the movie was great.

Thor 2 Red Carpet Premiere/ Tom CryingThor 2 Red Carpet Premiere/ Tom Crying1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Hello everyone! Yesterday in Los Angeles, California, U.S.A. there was a Red Carpet event going on where heaps of Marvel actors, directors, composers, etc. showed up including the cast for Thor 2, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and a few others like Jeremy Renner and Liam Hemsworth. Even though it's a two hour drive from where I live (San Diego), I was unable to go (a friend of mine did and he was able to be face-to-face with heaps of actors including Chris Hemsworth and even recorded his encounters with them... envy).
Anyways. If you missed out on the live streaming of it on Yahoo, here are a few I found that have Tom on them (they're all on a Facebook page but they're public. The subtitle translations are in Spanish but the videos are all in English so don't mind the subtitles).
If interested in viewing the entire Red Carpet event, Yahoo still has it here: http://movies.yahoo.com/thor-live/

Why Cole will not end up with Nya (Not a Rant)Ok so, most of you have heard the rumors that in Nya's bio video on Ninjago.com that there are (big) hints to the point that Nya has a crush on Cole.Why Cole will not end up with Nya (Not a Rant)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Ok now let's say these are true. Nya does have a crush on Cole and has thoughts about leaving Jay and dating Cole.
Nya confesses her feelings to Cole. Maybe Cole has feelings for her too, but maybe not. Either way he will not date her. Why?
It's the way Cole is. He knows that dating Nya would upset Jay, his teammate and one of his dearest friends. He's the leader. He's always thinking of what's best for the team and what's best for his friends. If he knew dating Nya would hurt one of his friends, no matter how much he liked her back, he would never do it. Cole always puts his friends first.
Now you think about it, would you date your best friend's girl/boyfriend?

4chan compromisedUNNECESSARY NECESSARY PREFACE!4chan compromised7 months ago in Personal More Like This
I'm well aware that not all of 4chan is "evil" and that not all people who participate or visit 4chan are "evil" either. This journal uses large sweeping generalizations because that's helpful for having a larger discussion. I'm not interested in minutia, I'm interested in the big picture here. And sadly, even if you love 4chan, it has a reputation which precedes it and you cannot deny that. So please, don't comment here with "But not ALL 4chan is bad!" remarks, ok? I know. I understand.
So here’s the latest that I’ve been able to discover about the GamerGate movement. Apparently 4chan and other like-minded websites have been “compromised.” Mods are now banning or deleting threads and discussions about GamerGate. This, naturally, has led many to assume that 4chan is “under control” by Social Justice Warriors (SJW for short) and a lot of people are leaving 4chan now to find other websites (or poss
No Women in eSports, and A Talk About SJWWomen segregated in eSports to “legitimize” the sportsNo Women in eSports, and A Talk About SJW10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I personally think that eSports is kinda a silly idea. The idea that video game competitions should be treated with the same respect as the Olympics is just... head scratching to me. But just because I personally don’t “get it” doesn’t mean I can’t support others who DO actually want to legitimize their hobbies or activities into being real things they can compete in.
However... if your way of “legitimizing” your eSport is to SEGREGATE WOMEN... you’re kinda shooting yourself in the foot. Earlier this week the International e-Sports Federation announced that it was going to separate it’s competitions into “male only” and “female only” groups... an act defended by the IEF as being (and I quote) “part of our effort to promote e-Sports as a legitimate sports”
Naturally, this ended up pissing a LOT
Console Generation RantThis generation of video game consoles has been completely off my radar. Even my fanboy lust of all things Nintendo can’t make me save up enough money to buy a Wii-U. I don’t know if it’s because I’ve become jaded over the last console war, or if I’m just moving on away from consoles into other avenues of gaming (ie: PC gaming), but something about this generation just defies interest for me.Console Generation Rant1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Some of it is just head inducing nonsense like this: http://www.theverge.com/2013/11/8/5080750/xbox-one-day-one-patch-required-to-play-games The Xbox One requiring a day one patch TO PLAY VIDEO GAMES. I mean, when the Ps3 launched it required a day one patch to play Blu-Ray movies, that’s not so bad though since you could still play games. But the Xbox One comes out and you literally can’t do anything with it if you don’t have an internet connection. For how much you paid for that device that’s pretty shitty.
And all the consoles are doing crap

On Humor and Grittyness in Movies/Video GamesI'm getting really sick of the idea that the only good action movies or video games are ones where everything is all serious and dark. It's the whole "gritty" concept blown to extremes. But through all the countless games I've played and movies I've watched, I think that we could back off a bit from being too damn serious and have some fun once in a while.On Humor and Grittyness in Movies/Video Games2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Take the latest Die Hard movie as a prime example. From the start it's a dark, gritty, almost monochromatic movie with a 20 minute car chase sequence at the beginning so over-the-top that it's almost cartoony. But the way it's shot is atrocious and there's no character development what-so-ever that 40 minutes into the film I was looking at the clock wondering not only "when will this be over," but also "what the f*** did I just watch?"
Contrast that to something like Independence Day. People like to rag on Independence Day because it's so "goofy" and "absurd." But what helps the film is that we're given time to enjoy the characters s
A Brief History of Marvel's Film RightsSome people took interest in this from my last journal ( Spider-Man and the Avengers ) so I thought I’d try to explain it better here. Please keep in mind that this is a SUPER CONDENSED version of events that took place (starting 60 years ago) that led to the convoluted mess that is currently Marvel’s various film franchises. Also keep in mind that I will be using industry shorthand like saying “comic book industry” to refer to the American comic book industry giants of Marvel and DC, because that’s how we do things here. Anyway, here we go!A Brief History of Marvel's Film Rights6 months ago in Personal More Like This
“Seduction of the Innocent” comes out (a moral panic book which blames comics for kid’s wayward negative behavior), massive book burnings and censorship of comics ensues. Old comics burned or lost, thus increasing the value of the few comics that remain.
Fantastic 4 Not Canon + Thor Be A WomanFantastic 4 Reboot Film Has No Relation to the ComicsFantastic 4 Not Canon + Thor Be A Woman9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Remember how pissed off everyone got when they found out the studios cast a black actor as the Human Torch and a white actress for his sister Sue Storm? Well there apparently was good reason for them not clarifying why this brother and sister duo are bi-racial. That’s because nothing in the movie has anything to do with the comics. Period.
Apparently the director has thrown everything about the comics out the window. There likely won’t be any fancy costumes, the characters won’t be called “The Fantastic 4” in the movie itself, and no part of the plot is going to be related to ANY prior comic storyline. The actress for Sue Storm asked if she should read any of the comics to get caught up and the director told her “don’t bother.”
So, yup.... this is gonna be shit. At least we have an explanation now for the strange casting choices though.
PAX DisappointmentI don't enjoy Penny Arcade. I have my reasons, after all we all have things we like and don't like. For the same reason I'm cool with people disliking my work (providing they leave me alone about it), I'm cool with letting people enjoy Penny Arcade while I continue to ignore it's existence.PAX Disappointment2 years ago in Personal More Like This
But Penny Arcade isn't just a comic strip anymore. It's also a convention. A BIG convention that a lot of comic and gaming industry people flock to. It's become one of the bigger conventions in America outside of Wizard World and San Diego/New York Comic Con.
Recently Penny Arcade did a joke with rape as the punchline. That's downright offensive and disgusting in my books and I'm on the side of a lot of people who found it equally offensive and insensitive. But freedom of speech and all that, it's not a series I enjoy so I normally wouldn't even be talking about it...
Except that things kinda escalated and took a turn for the worse...
First the Penny Arcade people started mocking rape victims and an
Miyazaki Retires and Inafune KickstarterHayao Miyazaki RetiringMiyazaki Retires and Inafune Kickstarter2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So famed Japanese animator Hayao Miyazaki announced recently that he's retiring from Studio Ghibli and from making movies. Everyone is, naturally, sad to see him go and bemoaning his departure... except me. Cuz I've been here before. He's announced his retirement so many times in the past that it has no meaning to me anymore. I remember when he announced his retirement back in 1998, over 12 years ago. Every time he says he's retiring he inevitably comes back in some capacity. I don't know if he truly means it this time, but I'm not holding my breath.
Keiji Inafune's Kickstarter
The creator of Mega Man, Keiji Inafune, recently started a kickstarter program to try and fund a Mega Man knock-off called Mighty No. 9. Inafune says that the reason he's doing this is to show japanese developers that they have options outside the very broken japanese publishing system and gaming industry that he has been very vocal
brentalfloss: The Comic is EndingToday we announced publicly that brentalfloss: The Comic http://brentalflossthecomic.com/ will be ending by the end of this month. After today's strip there will be 5 more and then it will be done. The website will continue to exist, so the comics themselves aren't going anywhere, and I will continue to repost the backlog of strips to DA until they run out, but by the end of August there will be no more new strips.brentalfloss: The Comic is Ending2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sad to see it go after doing 200 episodes. This has been one of my favorite comic related jobs I've ever had and an incredibly steady and reliable one at that. I personally would love to keep doing this job for a couple more years, but Brent and Dan both want to move on to other projects and we've all come to the mutual agreement that 200 is a perfect stopping point. Nothing lasts forever, ya know?
To be honest, I am a little surprised brentalfloss: The Comic lasted this long. Things were a little rocky at first, and it took all 3 of us a while to get used to each others sty
#CutForZayn? ...Bitch, PleaseJust when I thought desperate teenagers couldn't get any sillier, there's a new trend on Twitter called #CutForZayn. For those who don't know, it's kids cutting themselves or threatening to cut because Zayn Malik is leaving the shitty popular band, One Direction.#CutForZayn? ...Bitch, Please3 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
Never thought I'd write a rant with One Direction mentioned in it, but it's not so much about the band as it is about dumbass kids taking something as serious as cutting and doing it because their precious object of affection does something they don't like. Cutting is not something you just screw around with like that, and a "super hawt" guy leaving a "super awesome" band is not even CLOSE to a reason that warrants cutting yourself or engaging in any form of self harm. It's as bad as when Justin Bieber's fans started cutting to try to get him to stop smoking weed.
Look, I understand being a fan of someone. I'd love nothing more than to meet one of my favorite actors, but do you really think I'd cut myself or
