(Anyone who can name the movie I quoted this from reviewed bonus points!)
But seriously, I know what you are thinking: Academy, 2 journals in 1 day? You're crazy! Stop spamming our messages!
But I figured I'm at work all day, it's slower, and I have nothing else going on when I get home (except for the season premier of FACEOFF!!! )
So I decided to try something different.
Favorite this journal. For the amount of favorites I receive, I will update this journal with an answer to the following (the number is the amount if favorites required to answer that question)

2 who is my favorite of my own OCs
A tie between King Wight and Jocomo... Probably Jocomo though

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 Games1 year 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
Why Can't Warner Bros Get Their Act Together?Over the weekend at SDCC, Warner Bros announced that the new Man of Steel sequel will also feature Batman. The team-up movie will be followed by a Flash movie and then a Justice League Avenger's style team-up movie. This has a lot of people scratching their heads and wondering what exactly is wrong with DC and Warner Bros respectively. Why Flash and not Wonder Woman? Why add Batman when reports have been told that Christian Bale doesn't want to return and we'll likely get a completely new Batman? Why do a team-up so soon after the first Man of Steel movie instead of fleshing out Superman's modernized world better?Why Can't Warner Bros Get Their Act Together?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Well... to put it bluntly I don't think Warner Bros really gives a shit about comic book themed movies and they're only going through these motions because they feel like they HAVE to rather than because they WANT to. Just take a look at their track record.

First off, Warner Bros has a problem of relying too heavily on the people th
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 rant3 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
PRIEST LIGHTNIN!Brentalfloss contacted me early this week wanting to collaborate on a video about the new Pope. Our goal was to finish most of the art by the end of the week and just add in the Pope's face later when we finally found out who he was so that we could time the video with his election. As anyone who's probably seen CGP Grey's video about "how to elect a pope" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kF8I_r9XT7A , knows that it can sometimes take a very long time. So I was planning to work on this project rather leisurely in-between other projects like brentalfloss the comic.PRIEST LIGHTNIN!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Then I woke up Wednesday afternoon to a txt from brent indicating that they had just elected Pope Francis.
We both immediately leapt into action. Brent worked on finishing the song and starting to edit the video, while I worked on churning out the artwork as fast as humanly possible. I literally worked for 30 hours straight without sleep trying to get the various illustrations finished in time. Every time I finished a dr

People who do not have disabilities are fortunate in some ways; for example, they don't have to worry about whether they will be able to exit a burning building, wake up with excruciating pain, or have to choose between purchasing expensive medications that can keep them alive and paying their rent. However, please do not pity those of us who do, for having a disability does not automatically make someone less "lucky" than others.
It has nothing to do with luck.
I realize from firsthand experience that having a disability is extraordinarily challenging. Living with pain, as one example, must be beyond imagination. Living with suicidal thoughts and not knowing whether you will wake up in the morning because of all the medications you have to take for your disability is terrifying. It takes a lot of strength sometimes just to get up in the morning and face a day that is undou
A Bay TMNT rant + And a Plea from TomPrestonOne of the things that irritates the crap out of me is when people say “sometimes I just like to turn my brain off and enjoy a good explosion.” This has been cropping up a lot lately in the wake of the new Michael Bay produced TMNT movie, and I can’t tell you how pissed it makes me.A Bay TMNT rant + And a Plea from TomPreston3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Here’s the thing... turning your brain off doesn’t mean having to give up on competent filmmaking. I would argue that pretty much ALL of the Marvel movies so far have been mindless popcorn entertainment. None of the plots are “challenging,” they general don’t tackle “big existential themes,” and they’re littered with amazing set pieces and action sequences. The reason the Marvel movies succeed is because they’re competently put together.
It’s the difference between a McDonalds burger and one at a real restaurant. Both are probably bad for you health wise, but the one at a real restaurant is gonna look and taste so much better. And

I finally write written report since my return from BronyCon and it has nothing to do with the reporting organized details of the trip, nor responding to the dozens of messages I should be responding to. Way to go hima.
Didn't bother to re-read either.
Just wanted something to vent.
Chatting over with some friends on Skype, accidentally that irking and "hard to fathom the reason why" topic of the status of american animation today surfaced. I mean, let's go back to the 90's and the beggining of the last decade for a moment. What was on television then? How did Nickelodeon and Disney Channel operate? How did Cartoon Network start?
Nickelodeon had been around for a little while by the time Cartoon Network came to be if I recall correctly. And by 1993 it started producing original animated content. Animated content with creative settings and clever humor. Either characters we could relate to, or character

I love animals.I love animals.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Yesterday me and my boyfriend went to an animal/ doggie shelter. One man that I know from the place I work at/ have internship at takes care of the shelter and animals in there, is very much drawn into this theme and helps there a lot. I talked with him and we made an appointment to meet there. So we bought some doggie food and some doggie cookies and went there. We saw many beautiful dogs there, so cute and pretty, but also sad because they have to be in cages my heart was breaking...... most of them were crowding themselves between the levels of the cage just to be able to be touched/ patted/ scratched by us. They want the love from humans so much. poor little things...
Then we took one for a walk to a meadow near the shelter. We got Bruno, a arround 10 year old German Shepherd. He was so big! bigger than my Max. But so polite and cute! such a sweetheart. This is Bruno:
