My Little Dashie PoemShe came to me like an angelMy Little Dashie Poem3 years ago in Personal More Like This
She was beautiful from every angle
Showed up when my life was grim
Poured in a light when mine was dim
She was very young, but really strong
Running around all night long
Only once did she ever speak
Made my heart jump to next week
She kissed my cheek to know she had me
Cutely said "I love you, Daddy"
The day she left, I tried not to cry
But wasn't able the moment she said bye
Mouthing the words with eyes now filled
"I love you, Daddy...I always will"
Now I gaze at her baby pictures
My heart feels it's covered in blisters
The day I found her I remember well
In the wind, it must have been hell
Sitting in that box all alone
The box Read "Give To A Good Home"
Kojima wants Rising 2Straight quote from SPOnG.com:Kojima wants Rising 22 years ago in Personal More Like This
Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima has heaped a huge amount of praise on Metal Gear Rising developer Platinum Games, revealing that he would like to make a sequel to the action spinoff and would only consider partnering with the Bayonetta studio for the job.
In a roundtable attended by SPOnG, the producer also opined that Platinum is just a technological upgrade away from being "a world class studio."
"As far as [Metal Gear] Rising 2 is concerned, I really do have that in my mind, and I want to make it," Kojima explained. "And if we do make it, it would definitely be with Platinum. I don’t think anyone else could do it.
"Of course, my ulterior motive is that if Rising 2 came out, it would be guaranteed to sell! Which means that I wouldn’t have to worry about that with [new project, Metal Gear Solid] Ground Zeroes. I can just do what

Children's Literature, Morality + Changing IdealsIntroductionChildren's Literature, Morality + Changing Ideals3 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
With the invention of the printing press in the fifteenth century, and its gradual integration into society, people at last had access to literature. It was William Caxton who first saw the opportunity to make money by printing and selling those stories and fables hitherto told by word of mouth.
At this time, literature did not have age-specific target audiences. Inevitably, some stories appealed to children more than others. Robin Hood was especially popular, while Aesop’s fables offered entertainment and life lessons to adults and children alike.
It is, of course, impossible to say exactly when and how literature was identified as a useful tool in teaching morality to children. It is speculated that there was no concept of ‘childhood’ before the eighteenth century, although historians debate this, as historians are apt to do.

It doesn't really exactly feel like that long ago when I first started visiting dA and now it's already been a decade.
So kinda for myself (and also anyone possibly interested) here's a journal post recapping my last 10 years~ (Also sort of my journal in photography too, I guess.)
May 17 2002
I signed up on dA when someone in the drawing group I hung out with told me to check out his works here. I was only 14 then. I didn't use dA a lot at the time because it looked like this: http://web.archive.org/web/20030426063919/http://www.deviantart.com/
I was on a 15" 1024x768 display and the ad banner + dA header took up half my screen on every page load. Did not like. >_>
I dropped by dA every now and then, in Sept I suddenly found it a lot more user-friendly, the new version: http://web.archive.org/web/20030922013355/http://www.deviantart.com/

Scatterbrained Journal Post + RecommendationsI just got back from a trip and I’ve had a lot of things on my mind that I wanted to talk about but couldn’t due to an absence of keyboards (sorry iPhone, your keyboard and hilarious auto-correcting makes long-winded journals too difficult to do on the road).

I live in America and a lot of times I come under fire for my political beliefs not because they’re really controversial, but because they conflict with another countries political history. So I wanted to just reiterate that I am an American. I talk about American problems. You can frame pretty much every sentence I write with the addition of “...in America.” While I try to keep a level head about world politics I am not, and should not, be used as a credible source of information regarding politics or even history of o

Introduction about making handmade booksINTRODUCTION ABOUT BASIC TOOLS TO MAKE HANDMADE BOOKSIntroduction about making handmade books2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Today I'd like to share with you some basic tips if you're interested in making handmade books. I've learned how to do that a few terms ago, at the university. As an art restoring adept I've been through the old, traditional ways of making books and added some modern touches to simplify that. I'm going non-professional so far, without expensive equipment, so if you'd like to give books a try you don't have to invest that much
The first and obvious thing that's needed for our book is paper. At that stage you have to decide what kind of book you'd like to make - you need lined or squared paper for notebooks, journals, cookbooks and basically everything that's meant to write in. Sketchbooks and scrapbooks require nice smooth plain paper and photo albums work best with thick and durable paper. Of course those are basics, you can use decorated paper or one suitable for

Thusday, 24th May:
I arrived at the Airport in the afternoon and the organization team picked me up from there . The hotel room was directly next to the con. It was still some time till Elffi's plane would arrive, so Christian (organization team member) and I took a walk in a nearby park. I got so distracted by wild DOGS, BIRDS and CATS everywhere *-*! I could pet a cute wild kitty <3 awww~~
The we went to the airport to pick up Elffi. We were standing there pretty long and I got bored and annoyed XD;....so the first thing I did after he came out of the baggage claim room, was kicking his leg and asking why the hell that took so long ;O;~~~
We haven't seen each other since WCS, so that really heartwarming kick was the nicest greeting I could get in mind *LOL*.

As most of you know, I quit cosplaying a year ago and made a video about it about 6 months ago. Due to the high demand of many wonderful fellow cosplayers and convention goers writing to me to come back to the community, I have decided that since I left due to my career, that I now have the time to start up some fun new cosplays. I may not be doing a lot or attending as many conventions as I did in the past, but I will do what I can. I was very touched and honored to know so many people would miss me with them at conventions and this creative community. I missed all you guys very much as I focused on my career as a writer and artist. So, I am happy to say, I shall be returning to cosplay and have some fun new things in store for the future. I can't promise that it will be Hellsing related but I do have a lot of things to offer.
I will say that to start that my novel series PHOENIX was picked up in NYC by a couple big NYC publishin
SDCC NewsThe Industry taking notice of WomenSDCC News8 months ago in Personal More Like This
“Lucy,” the new Scarlett Johansson R-rated action movie, is beating out The Rock’s “Hercules” reboot. Since we all know box-office statistics gained over a single weekend dictate how Hollywood organizes their films for the upcoming years, this seems to be once again another blow to the idea that women can’t be big picture draws.
This whole year movies have been coming out featuring strong female characters and lead actresses, and there CLEARLY is a market for that as all of those films have been box office blowouts. And that just makes me happy because it proves the industry WRONG on so many levels. Even the fact that some of the movies were reviewed pretty badly (such as “Maleficent”), the fact that the films are huge box office draws shows that there was a market ACHING for some new content just sitting there.
Here’s hoping they finally green light a “

I found a heart at the beginning of the year whilst browsing shop aisles for a mirror. It had an imperfection, a tiny little heart on the bottom corner, but I fell in love with it anyway. I decided to take the collage approach and use two images to showcase where and how I found my “heart.” You can do exactly the same! Or you can have a singular image that shows a heart... whatev

BatfleckIt's....it's like they WANT it to fail....Batfleck2 years ago in Personal More Like This
They're going in the right direction, by making Batman an older, more experienced hero (told you it was a good idea!), but they've cast the wrong guy.
Now there's nothing wrong with Ben Affleck. People badmouth his acting, but I've never had a problem with it. He can also do the super-hero thing. The problem with Daredevil was the script, not the casting. Affleck did a fine job as Matt Murdock, given the tripe he had to work with. He just isn't Batman/Bruce Wayne, though.
On the Keaton-Clooney Scale, he's a full-on George.
He'd make a much better Superman than he would a Batman. He's even played Superman before.....well, he played a guy that played Superman (Hollywoodland, 2006).
The actor I'd have loved to see take the role of the Bat is Jeffrey Dean Morgan. He plays a relentless, gri
