Rant on Greeny PhatomAlright. I've been talking to my friends on Steam and DeviantArt about how awful Greeny Phatom and it's spin-offs are, and I am getting tired of talking about it all the time, So y'know what...i'm gonna do a rant.Rant on Greeny Phatom9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Alright, there's two main things about the show i'm going to rant about: The show, the spin-offs, and the fanbase.
From looking at the name and thumbnail of these kind of videos, you already know it's going to suck A LOT. I'm going to start with the abomination that started it all (Created by 2009greenyphatom). It's pretty much a crappy cartoon with no animation or humor whatsoever. Here's a list of the stuff wrong with it:
The animation is seriously lacking. There is barely any chance of finding an episode that has atleast decent animation. Normally it's just two images repeating for a long time, or Windows Movie Maker effects (That obviously means that this was made in Windows Movie Maker...I think this guy needs to do a lot of learning i

Political Journal: Anti-Bullying BulliesWARNING: Political opinions and positions lie herein! I'm just hoping to stimulate conversations if I can though.Political Journal: Anti-Bullying Bullies2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I do not honestly begin this with the intention of telling people what to think or state emphatically that my positions are unassailable. All I want to do is make mention of my understanding and support that with evidence.
If I veer from the rails correct me and I'll attempt to readjust.
If you dispute any points too, PLEASE state them below!
I want to talk about it.
Just to make it clear though, some of these positions will be objective.
Dan Savage (the man who shares the unfortunate distinction of being the chief editor of a local Seattle publication called The Stranger) recently gave a speech at a high school as part of his anti-gay-bullying series It Gets Better. In addition to encouraging homosexuals on their lifestyles he made a point of calling out what he saw as Christian hypocrisy...or to put it in his own words 'Bullshit'.

Poet of Lovers & Rebels, Poet of Dreamersby MARX77
As is the case with all artists, poets too are greatly influenced by the world around them and how they perceive it. The splendor of the heavens above, the dynamics of the earth beneath their feet. The uncertainty of life, the inevitability of death. But more importantly, a poet's inspiration comes from what they carry within themselves; their memories, relationships, their dreams, joy and grief. Verses borne of turmoil and tragedy decades ago continue to resonate to this day and are as relevant now as they were back then. Truly poetry is an art form for the ages!

Milk & Other Foods Can Be Harmful For Cats
I don't know how many times I've seen and heard people always say milk.. and even foods, like tuna are healthy for a cat. They may like it, but that doesn't mean it is healthy nor good for them in the long run.

Merry War on Christmas, everybody! Once again the wheel of the year has turned and we find ourselves faced with the holiest of holy times of the year -- every atheist's favorite war, the War on Christmas!
Last year, I wrote a journal sharing critical information about the traditional celebrations of the annual War, including some important information about AntiChrist-mas.
Well, one thing I neglected to tell you all is that every year brings new ways to celebrate -- because creating new traditions is part of the tradition! Let's dive straight in to the celebrations, shall we?
Christians typically are the first to fire shots during our sacred holidays, and this year is no different.

Beware of 'Crisis Pregnancy Centers'☆ Happenings ☆Beware of 'Crisis Pregnancy Centers'10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I felt this was very important to pass on:
There are many fake clinics around posing as legitimate health centers. Learn the warning signs to look out for and do not let their intimidation and guilt tactics keep you from seeking legitimate care.
Some of the big red flags are:
They are not staffed by doctors, nurses, ultrasound techs, or any other real health care professionals.
Say that abortion causes breast cancer, sterility, and long-term psychological damage.
Provide misleading information about the side effects and failure rates of birth control and condoms.
Use manipulative tactics to get pregnant women to delay real counseling or medical care until it’s too late for a legal abortion.
Subject people to religious and ideological propaganda against abortion, birth control, condoms, and/or s
Is Tolerance Tolerant?Its possible, I hope at least, to have a discussion with point and counter point without the need to become enemies.Is Tolerance Tolerant?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
How many times has someone silenced you with a simple offhanded reiteration of 'That wasn't very tolerant'?
Strange how tolerance sometimes becomes the byword of intolerance: namely censoring opposing positions without any due consideration.
Now not everyone uses 'tolerance' in this way. We all grew up learning tolerance was a good thing and that people should be accepted just the way they are. Its a good thing, definitionally, that you seek to act in a moral and friendly fashion and encourage that behavior in others by calling their attention to speaking out in anger or being unjust to others.
'Everyone is entitled to their opinions' is taken at face value as undeniable fact, yes? Of course. We're all well bred people who wouldn't dream of imposing ourselves on others.
Or would we?
This 'tolerance' and 'equality of opinion' stops dead in the mind of many for people w

Deviant DiscoveryDeviant Discovery2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
WHAT IS DEVIANT DISCOVERY?
Deviant Discovery is a weekly Journal Feature that focuses specifically on Deviants that have good art, but haven't gotten much attention for it. Every week, a new Deviant will be chosen, and a few of their artworks will be show in this Journal, along with a description of the artist themselves. This weekly feature will serve as an attempt to get under-appreciated artists more attention then they already have.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
It will work in a similar way to Daily Deviations - either I could select a Deviant myself, or someone could be suggested by another Deviant. Once a Deviant is chosen, we'll find their best five Deviations to be featured in the Journal. Then, we'll give a short description of the artist's work, and a small explanation of why they were chosen. The feature will remain on the front of my page for seven days [168 hours; one week], so that the Deviant can get continuous attention. Suggestions could be s
Megaupload is Just The Beginning?Here's a little bit of a worrisome discovery.Megaupload is Just The Beginning?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Megaupload, a file sharing website, is completely gone. If you go to that domain its entirely blank.
But here's the thing...the FBI destroyed it.
The main offices of this site were located in New Zealand, but there were other smaller offices in the US. The Federal Government literally hunted down the representatives of this webpage and arrested them in two countries, then erased it from existence!
But not before they seized all the records of anyone who ever used the site as evidence.
If you or anyone else has used Megaupload illegally, this will probably be very disturbing.
Why? Because their site was distributing copy-write infringing uploads.
So those who claim SOPA and PIPA will do nothing, take a good look into the black hole of Megaupload. The FBI can track you down and throw you in prison and then track all your constituents ALREADY.
But the reach of this is even wider.

Beauty in Structure: Form PoetryBeauty in Structure: A How-To of Form PoetryBeauty in Structure: Form Poetry2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
There was once a time in which I despised free verse poetry for its lack of structure. It takes no talent to write this, I thought. Now, being an intelligent and rational adult I recognize that free verse has its merits. I even write in it occasionally, and it seems to be the default of many budding poets. But what is it about form poetry that makes beginning poets afraid of it? Perhaps the same thing that makes it so much better than free verse poetry, to me. And while many of you may understand the ins and outs of form poetry, especially as a result of this past week, it takes a little more work to apply it.
To that end, I wish to explain and explore some of my favorite methods of binding myself to structure--specifically meter. There is much more to writing form poetry than merely rhyming the words on the ends of the lines. And despite that "confine" and "bind" sound like negative wo

A few days back, Autodesk released Sketchbook Pro 6, and I think this is the version that's going to make a lot of people who have YET to experience Sketchbook Pro in full, or haven't really given the past versions a chance, switch over to making it their digital drawing software of choice; heck, even their PAINTING software of choice.
We still have the cleverly-designed user interface, that makes it easy on the eyes and mind when we're brainstorming and sketching. With the handful of new tools introduced, we still have a clutter-free drawing environment, and man, there's some awesome tools this time around. I'll go down the list:

The U.S. Gov't and Current ScandalsI just want to comment on something that has been going on recently in the news. As some of you know, I am a former U.S. Army intelligence analyst and worked in special forces and strategic intelligence my entire 21 year career. I was intimately familiar with federal regulations regarding intelligence collection on U.S. citizens, corporations, and interests. I know a few of my friends may not agree with me, but that's okay.

The Poison of Postmodern LyingWhen truth is relative, political expediency becomes the truth.The Poison of Postmodern Lying8 months ago in Personal More Like This
By Victor Davis Hanson
All presidents have, at one time or another, fudged on the truth. Most politicians pad their résumés and airbrush away their sins. But what is new about political lying is the present notion that lies are not necessarily lies anymore — a reflection of the relativism that infects our entire culture.
Postmodernism (the cultural fad “after modernism”) went well beyond questioning norms and rules. It attacked the very idea of having any rules at all. Postmodernist relativists claimed that things like “truth” were mere fictions to preserve elite privilege. Unfortunately, bad ideas like that have a habit of poisoning an entire society — and now they have.
