Urgent help neededHi, this is Mark, Phil Jackson's brother.Urgent help needed3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As some of you in the UK will have heard on the news these past two days, Phil has gone missing. No one has seen him since Wednesday last week and we are all extremely concerned for his wellbeing as he has never missed a family gathering, such as that over Easter.
More distressing is that the office complex he works out of was broken into on the evening of Wednesday 27th March, and there is a very real worry that those responsible may be involved in Phil's disappearance.
The police are of the mind that all of this may have something to do with Phil's online work, and that a cartoon or comic may have been motive for an unbalanced party to act against him.
CCTV in Phil's office captured a handful of images as the intruders entered from the service access: http://www.collectedcurios.com/CCVT_001.jpg http://www.collectedcurios.com/CCVT_002.jpg http://www.collectedcurios.com/CCVT_003.jpg

Additionally, someone donated 43 points so those will be divided among the contest placements as well. In further addition, no written entries were submitted, so there will be a recalculation of points (for those who donated prizes to the written winner you no longer need to give them!).

For several months of torture, the Directorate kept me in their offices, making me file paperwork on their "test subjects", all while I kept sending applications to the "Dead Zone tourism" branch, to get away from towering cubes of the Directorate, away from cities and transmitter towers that were slowly frying my brain.
Centuries of industrial pollution were inevitably changing the biosphere of our world and the Directorate knew it better than anyone, yet they did nothing to stop it, profit had to be maximized, production had to be increased, customers had to be satisfied. Holes in the ozone layer, irreversible changes in the atmosphere, radioactive fallout, wild-life mutations, the days growing darker and the sky turning black - none of this mattered to them.
These changes must have been so gradual that no single generation was able to protest it.
Everyone was happily, playfully, and joyfully ignoring the world outside o

Yay for American Independence. No, really!An odd statement for a quasi-neo-imperialist to say, I know, but if the Colonials hadn't (justifiably) got shirty over lack of representation in Parliament, the British Empire would never have become the behemoth that it did.Yay for American Independence. No, really!3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thanks to the rebellion/revolution, the British Government changed the way it conducted itself so as to ensure such an incident would never happen again.
Had they not, a revolution similar to that seen in France, 1789, would have very likely occurred on home turf.
The French leadership maintained their "all powerful" façade, and in assisting the American colonies, spent a fortune. This further angered their already irate people, who, in seeing that it could be done, decided to have a little revolution of their own.
So, with the economy booming thanks to renewed transatlantic trade between Fair Blighty and the newly formed United States and with Britain's arch enemy France focused on tearing itself apart, there was nothing to stop the Empire's expansion.

The Creepy Visitors LogThis is going to sound assinine, because it is. lol.The Creepy Visitors Log3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I know it even as I begin to type this.
So with the premium membership, as many of us know, one is able to customize their page with a bunch of extra bells and whistles. One of these options is The Visitor's Log. For those of you who don't have a PM, or don't have it enabled, this is an option that shows you the names and avatars of the last 5 people to visit your page. It updates a lot as people drop by.
This is an art website. The whole point is that you want pageviews. You want people to stop by. Your watchers, new people, etc etc. I like it. It's interesting.
Often I glance down and see people I recognize ( I'm really good at remembering avatars). nd then I'm like; " Oh hay! Looky who it is!" . Or I see new people and I check out their pages, because I'm interested in their stuff. Sometimes, it's fun to see if a person has common interest to me or w/e.
However, is this just
History Repeats ItselfLast week a Connecticut action group going by the name of SouthingtonSOS held a video game burning event where local citizens were encouraged to bring various forms of violent media to be burned in a dumpster, no doubt a reaction to the recent Connecticut shooting.History Repeats Itself3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I wish I could say I am surprised about this, but sadly the whole media frenzy surrounding violence in video games and movies reminds me of something that already happened once and profoundly affected the media it was accusing: Comic books.
During the early days of comic books, things occasionally got a little risqué. EC Horror comics in particular delighted in rendering extremely gruesome images and disturbing themes in their comics, which were being sold to children unbeknownst to their parents (because naive parents at the time had no reason to suspect comics might contain "inappropriate" material). However all that changed in 1954.
German-American psychiatrist Fredric Wertham was upset about how disturbing some of those
Devious Journal EntryFalling Stars will shine so brightDevious Journal Entry3 years ago in Personal More Like This
When the world is still at night
Moon will fade and Sun will die
When we come when dreams are high
Into Darkness all will fall
From planets great to seeds so small
Nightingale will cease its song
When evil wins it will be strong
But where there's night there is day
Where there's a will there's a way
Where darkness is there's always light
Given the chance it will shine bright
Hope may be so frail and shy
But as long as there's good it will never die,
So follow your dreams and look to the sky
For that is where I shall be when dreams are high
Yes, follow your dreams and look to the sky
For that is where I shall be when dreams are high

Nintendo Direct unveiled a bunch of big announcements the other day, the highlights being a HD remake of Wind Waker, announcement of a new Zelda, a new Yoshi's Story game, a new 3D Mario game, a new Mario Kart game, and a new Smash Bros game to be unveiled at E3 this year. Other info like a possible sequel to Xenoblades, updates on Bayonetta 2, and a forthcoming WiiU firmware update that'll alleviate some of the sluggish load times and unlock the Virtual Console (as well as the announcement that Gamecube games and GBA games will be possibly sold in the eShop).
Quite a lot of info, but here's my question. Why is everyone surprised at it? I've lived through every console generation with Nintendo and I can honestly say, a lot of this wasn't really a surprise to me. Like, yeah of course they're gonna make a new Smash Bros, Mario Kart, and 3D Mario game. It's friggin' Nintendo. Why is that a surprise? It's not like those are second tier franchises like Metro
SOPAA few months back I wrote a journal about an internet censorship bill that was looking to be passed in the congress. The bill was poorly written, but the broadness of the wording freaked a lot of internet dwellers out. People were scared their favorite websites would be censored or removed completely. Thankfully the bill didn't pass. Unthankfully a new version is going up for vote now and this time it's getting far more support.SOPA4 years ago in Personal More Like This
SOPA = Stop Online Piracy Act
Once again it's very broadly written and could have very serious implications if it gets passed. The bill is written with the expressed purpose of being able to take legal action against online piracy in foreign markets. It seems likely that the bill is meant to snub out piracy sites like ThePirateBay.org, but the wording is so broad that it's very possible that it could have serious repercussions elsewhere.
Yesterday the bill was supposed to be voted on, but it was delayed due to a filibuster. It's currently set to be voted

Arvalis-2012 by arvalis
What does 'Character Design' mean?
The character design is the process which comes after the characterisation and consists in defining the character through his/her physical appearance.
We need to consider a character as a little fictional creature, human or not, that aims to please its creator and the public as well.
While the basic characterization of this fictional creature (his tastes, his fears, his behaviors) may take a little mental effort, as it is a sort of list of emotions, facts and feelings that come and go in the life of a character, the process of visual realization of this creature may not be as simple. That's why many writers and characters creators prefer to rely on experienced hands.
Also many of the mental aspects of the character are not possible to gain by using 'static' visual medium. For 'static' I mean all the illustrations and drawings unable to tell a

Beware: Here be cussin'!
I’m writing this because there is this gigantic upheaval in the comics, video game, Hollywood machine, etc. over how women are portrayed in popular media and I think these themes, themes of women in combat and having to use any sort of armor (or even simply getting dressed for combat) is a subject of major contention. I, for one, and kind of tired of seeing the Panty-plate or exposed important bits and then some dude (or publisher/company) telling me this female character is some sort of fighter.
Now, a little disclaimer before we get started:
While I may pull from sources about this issues and use examples to further my point, I am in NO way bashing someone’s art. Some of these people (mainly dudes) who draw these characters fucking rock. I mean:
Look at that thing. She’s a total badass and I of

The worse offender is EA, but there not alone Ubisoft and a long list of others are right behind them.
Because of this most games these days are focusing on "13 year old's that live in New York City" the games are accessible not finished and minimum effort, they just all round suck.
A side factor of this is most hardcore games have became completely extinct, look at RTS the last grate one was Supreme commander FA, and that was years ago, RTS are totally dead the only ones that do get made are the most accessible heaps of crap like Star Craft II and all C&C games, they have almost 0 base building and the economy is focused on rush, RTS should be at leas
