After Gold Coast Supanova 2013 (LOTSAPHOTOS)Hi its innocent yet perverted childish yet wise Rycecake with honey on top. I shouldve made this journal ages ago but I got really busy and tired.. the time has come however for this journal update. I was in another state for Supanova the cultural comic book and movies convention, went to Gold Coast, the place is like a paradise ok. If Sydney is like Kanto and Melbourne is like Johto then Gold Coast would be Hoenn. And this time I didnt go by myself... in fact LOTS of people came, I was with 3 high school friends as well as my bro :iconthiskidthatkid: and her friend Shawin, we had 6 people in a 4 people hotel room (Dont tell anyone). Oh gosh this trip is so much more different when there are other folks around, highlights includes Shawin (whos a professional dancer) teaching me a few moves on the dance floor, first time getting a kiss from a watcher, ordering LOTS AND LOTS of meat for the hot pot cos its unlimited refill, me trying to cook a pizza but failing miserably, and also goingAfter Gold Coast Supanova 2013 (LOTSAPHOTOS)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Just a few things about killjoysOkay guys, I just wanted to write this up to help anyone who isn’t familiar with how the climate of the Californian desert can effect different skin tones, and various other things about living out here. I live in a fairly small town between LA and San Diego, moreso towards San Diego, it’s smack dab in the middle of the desert. Summer temperatures usually range form 88-105 degrees during daylight and 30-40 degrees at night.Just a few things about killjoys4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The difference between our heat here and let’s say in Florida is, ours is a dry heat. You can head outside and hang out without sweating. But the draw back is it tends to dry out skin, hair, nails, etc. So even if you sit inside you’ll dry out without a humidifier, and I highly doubt those would be easy to come back in post-apocalyptic 2019. Because of the heat you tend to sweat a lot, sweat leads to breakouts, and breakouts lead to apply profuse amounts of makeup, causing worse breakouts. So more than likely inhabitants skin m

John Bauer and his trollsJohn Bauer's life was very short and very sad. Despite this, he left behind many illustrations that later became inspiration for loads of later artists, like Arthur Rackham, Sulamith Wülfing or Kay Nielsen. Would you like to read about him and about his trolls?John Bauer and his trolls3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
36 gloomy years
Born in 1882 in Jönköping, Sweden, he grew up with two brothers and a sister, Anna, who died very early, at the age of 13, which badly effected John and his brothers and left visible marks in their minds for the rest of their lives. Their father used to own a charcuterie and the apartment they lived in was located above the shop.
He started sketching very early in his childhood, although there is no formal date known. In 1898, when young Bauer was 16, he moved to Stockholm to study art and two years
Microsoft Surface Pro Hands-On + Thoughts for ArtThe local Boston Microsoft store has the Surface Pro on display, and I got a good solid 30+ minutes to play with it.Microsoft Surface Pro Hands-On + Thoughts for Art3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Pro is definitely thicker than the Surface RT and even the iPad 1, but it's not to the point of feeling unattractive -- if anything it improves handling a little bit because it makes it nearer to the thickness of something like a book. I had no problem gripping the drive in portrait mode one-handed. (Being a widescreen device, it can get a little uncomfortable in landscape mode, but only if gripped from the sides. Top or bottom is just fine. Two handed is no problem at all.) The great thing about the Microsoft store is that they don't tether their devices down, so you can unplug it, pick it up, move around with it, really get a feel. That said, the weight, at 2 lbs, is no issue to me either. I have big hands, and I'm used to picking up heavy stuff for long periods of time (groceries etc) so I can't speak for everyone on that -- but if I owned the Pro, I'd have no qua

Q of the Week:Difference of Steam/Diesel/CyberpunkWEEK 2Q of the Week:Difference of Steam/Diesel/Cyberpunk3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Every week I will be discussing a new question of the week about steampunk. This one is a day early (busy tomorrow).
Question: What is the difference between Steampunk, Dieselpunk, and Cyberpunk?
A: First, a small history lesson. Before the Victorian Era, James Watt came up with the designs for the steam engine that became prominent in the Industrial Revolution. The Industrial Revolution took place between the years 1750-1850 so before and during the Victorian Era (1837-1901). The Edwardian Era took place between the years 1901-1910 which then was followed by WWI, a time of peace, then WWII. The use of steam powered engines faded out during WWII due to the inefficiency of steam power.
Before WWII, experimentation on diesel fueled engines began, but there was not a high demand for it until after WWII. Petroleum usage had risen, so people were looking for an alternative to petroleum. Congrats, your minute history course is complete.
So what’s the diff

"Hic?" Jack spoke with a small smirk on his face. The Autumn spirit looked at his lover in complete wonder, hoping it wasn't one of his pranks again.
"Yes, Jack?" Hiccup asked as he took his time to look over to his Winter guardian. When he finally turned around and met Jack's eyes, Jack smiled widely.
"Close your eyes..." Jack whispered in his ear, sending shivers down the younger spirit's neck. Hiccup obeyed, and just followed the older male's lead.
"Okay. You can open them~" Jack spoke once again. Hiccup opened his eyes slowly, only to find Jack standing with a wide grin on his face. The Autumn spirit observed the older male. He found an ice crown floating over his head, and a cape that was frosted on his shoulders.
Ode to Peace, the Holiday Season, and LoveYes my watchers, there are such things in this world.Ode to Peace, the Holiday Season, and Love1 year ago in Personal More Like This
There's no snow outside my window. It's not such a bad thing. Christmas isn't made of snow. It doesn't melt away in the spring as much as people seem to think it does, and it doesn't fade out with time, because Christmas simply is not a single day of the year.
Christmas is a memory, one that we hold with us through every year for good or bad, and remember even if it is at odd times like July or when the sun is out and so hot we wish for a time when hot chocolate felt comforting again.
My family is spread out now. Next year, it will be more so, and my own life will be changed. I'll be celebrating in a new land, with new people, and making new memories. But nothing, nothing at all, will change this one. I'll be able to remember, when I'm old and gray, about my dad and I talking about the history of Perrier water, about me getting up at 5:10AM so I could make breakfast at 6:30 for my family. I'll be able to remember the look on my sist

3D Printing with Bees3D Printing with Bees1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
How awesome is this? Dewar's (the whiskey brand) created an ad campaign that used bees as a "3D printer" ...or as they called it "3-B printing." They created shells of the sculpture they wanted to create and let 80,000 bees loose inside of it. Over time, the bees created beautiful honeycomb sculptures.
Nice work Dewar's and the agencies behind the campaign, Sid Lee New York and The Ebeling Group!

Nerding out to SargentI went to the De Young museum today with my mom having no idea what was actually in it and ended up spending a good hour in a room with a couple of Sargents.

One of the paintings was this one- http://www.artrenewal.org/artwork/187/187/27161/a_dinner_table_at_night-large.jpg which I never really took the time to examine before. I admired the colors and general mood but, as always, seeing a painting in person is quite a different experience. His bright, not-quite-white highlights are slapped on chunkily and they come out quite far from the canvas. And they "pop" in a way no highlight has any right to- they're super juicy and effective.
