Saturday, Day 3 of Comic-ConSaturdays mean the kids at Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters and the adults at Stark Enterprises alike are free to spend the weekend as they please! For them as well as zombies and time lords, to whom weekends mean nothing, Saturday in San Diego was one of the most packed days of the convention yet!Saturday, Day 3 of Comic-Con2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
DeviantART staffers continued showering visitors with stress balls, collectible pins, and swapped stories of their favorite deviantART experiences. It's a long day, but hearing some of the inspirational stories that originate from our humble corner of the Internet are truly inspiring.
Our final Comic-Con panel was held at 12:15 pm, and the topic was "How-To: Creator vs. Audience." Ron Martino (techgnotic) led the panel, which talked about how the digital nature of storytelling on deviantART is changing the way the world interacts with its audiences. Alongside him were Wenqing Yan (yuumei), Brian Kesinger (BrianKesinger), Dave Elliott (DeevElliott), and Hal Hefne

BACKFIRE!!I was really debating whether or not I should mention this, but it's cringingly funny, despite my not coming out of it well AT ALL.BACKFIRE!!4 months ago in Personal More Like This
I listen to Hollywood Babble On, a thoroughly puerile show (probably one of the reasons it’s on my playlist) which is hosted by Ralph Garman and Kevin Smith. A little while back, a teacher of Garman’s kid was said to be in the audience and Garman joked that he’d better be on his best behaviour otherwise the teacher would call child protective services ‘round.
Smith’s jokingly sexual humour over the course of the show didn’t help out with this at all, AND it gave me an idea for a quick pin-up to draw….. which I did….. and which I thought, at the time, would be really funny to send to them….. which I did…. along with a gag about me drawing smutty comics…… which has come back to bite me…..
Oh, god, there isn’t a rock big enough for me to hide under.

What The Crap Is Even Furry AddendumAKA What We Talk About When We Talk About FurryWhat The Crap Is Even Furry Addendum1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Prev - http://rickgriffin.deviantart.com/journal/What-The-Crap-Is-Even-Furry-444973238
Something else I feel that I need to mention in order to contextualize my journal better is that, I did not intend for the list to contain every exhaustive permutation of subcategories for anything I mentioned. Point 4 by itself (common furry style) contains all sorts of variations on anatomy etc--the thing is, with each definition, what it means is that when someone says "furry" they don't MEAN to drill down to an exact picture in their head (This is not the Furry Code after all).
But, nonetheless they usually mean something when they use the word, especially when they use it to exclude other things. Let me give a few examples. (These are all paraphrases of things I've read on the internet at one point or another)
"I'm not a furry, I only draw anthro art."
"LOL that's not fur
Last chicken in Sainsbury's“Dirty Bird”, a fried chicken vendor in Wales, has been forced to defend its choice in logo:Last chicken in Sainsbury's10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Some rather prudish individuals have complained that it looks a mite dubious, while the owner of Dirty Bird has insisted that people are seeing what they want to see, and not what was intended.
It is claimed that the logo is simply the lower case initials of the company placed back to back in order to form the neck and wings of a cockerel.
Seeing one of Dirty Bird’s recent promotional images, however; one might be given cause to doubt their professed innocence.
And people ask why I like living on this spiteful little island

About my TMNT rantGot a long journal head of you. I tried to break it up a bit so you can skim parts.About my TMNT rant10 months ago in Personal More Like This
It appears some people were a little less than happy with the idea that I’m not going to see the new TMNT movie, yet have already formed a negative opinion about it. Some people, who don’t understand what the word means, are calling this “hypocritical” since I often ask that people try to see both sides of an issue, so taking a definitive stance here with (what appears to be to them) incomplete data is wrongheaded of me. So now I gotta write this journal to explain my actions better. Hope you’re happy ‘bout that...
It’s just a movie! Why does it matter?
Because it’s not JUST a movie. Movies do not exist in a vacuum. How well (or bad) a movie does informs YEARS of upcoming movies and careers. Thousands of people’s jobs are dictated on the whim of what the box office rankings are for opening weekend. A now famous example is Guillermo
F**k-ugly watermarks.I follow a lot of insanely talented artists here on DA, people whose work I look at in sheer awe and whose skill I can only dream of one day matching.F**k-ugly watermarks.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Unsurprisingly, that high quality of work leads to them either having their work ripped off or operating in fear of that happening. They, quite rightly, want to protect their art with a watermark, something which I'm not against at all.
What I am against, what I hate, is people using that god-awful DA watermark.
If you are a good artist: don't be a lazy git. Make your own watermark, use your own logo. You'll protect your work without doing it the disservice of having some automatically-generated arse-smear ruining it.
NSYAC, Scheduling Conflicts, New Art on My WebsiteFrustratedNSYAC, Scheduling Conflicts, New Art on My Website1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I never know what’s gonna tick people off. I thought making a comic poking fun at how fed up my bear “character” has been lately would be a nice transition to “New SYAC” strips with Emily and Jade. Turns out it was one of those strips that just rubbed people the wrong way and now I’m getting inundated with “if you’re so fed up, then why don’t you leave?” retorts.
That’s. The. Joke. Guys.
It still amazes me that people can’t separate fact from fiction, even when my “character” is a grumpy carebear. I don’t know if I should be laughing or crying over the unironical “why don’t you leave” responses.
Perhaps I could’ve chosen a better news article for the strip, since the actual article I picked was one about women who ARE fighting back. I thought the fact that women even have to fight at all would be enough to carry the joke, but
Brace Yourself - More Women in Gaming NewsJustin Bailey Samus Costume in SSBBBrace Yourself - More Women in Gaming News9 months ago in Personal More Like This
So Nintendo released this today: https://www.facebook.com/permalink.php?story_fbid=316135481893472&id=224173137756374
In case you didn’t go check it out, it’s a screenshot of a costume option for Zero Suit Samus which has her dressed in basically a sports-bra outfit. An obvious nod to the “Justin Bailey” code from the original Metroid (or Zero Suit Mission but honestly who cares?).
I honestly wish I could get mad over this, but I’m frankly just sick and tired of this kinda crap. I already apparently “offended” people with my rants about her ugly ass high-heel-boots several months ago, and I don’t wish to go through with that again. Not to mention there does come a point where complaining about “fanservice” in a game ALL ABOUT FANSERVICE becomes kinda... gauche.
Just for the record though, I am not against this outfit per say. There is nothing wrong with wearing sports

Minecraft Server stuff 1/21/13Hi guys. Jeeze, writing journals is sort of hard. You have to think for a while about what you want to say. I just try to type the first thing that comes to my head so it makes it easier.Minecraft Server stuff 1/21/132 years ago in Personal More Like This
ANYWAYS, I brought back my MC server again since so many people seem to want to play it. Who knows how long people will last on it before it becomes a yummy barren dessert.
This server has bukkit on it, and just to warn you all ahead of time, it might crash sometimes or I might randomly reload when editting the configs. Usually I announce a reload though. Oh, and it has to restart sometimes when I have to remove a plugin. Oh, and there may be bugs, I just barely loaded bukkit. Another thing to note is that the server is 1.4.7... So, yeap.
This server has spout on it. It is very much so recommended that you get spout to access some of the features. I will list the features below. Any features that require spout, I will include a star(). I will not list plugins and features that only ops can use,
