Rumors (Lies) about Vic MignognaRecently, Vic was announced as a guest at a convention I go to every year. As a fan, I was very glad to see that! Then the other day, I decided to check out the forums of that convention to see if there may be any hints as to who else would be coming. What do I find? A thread asking the convention staff why they booked a jerk like him for the con!Rumors (Lies) about Vic Mignogna3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The exact quote went like this: "even more of us (Risembol Rangers, formers of the latter, or not) know how much of a jerk he is to the staff of conventions, to other paid con guests, and to con attendees. Just why would you, the staff, resort to getting such a man onto your guest list despite knowing how rude and how much of a diva he is to any and everyone around him?"
I know rumors about Vic are nothing new, but I've never heard of someone actually questioning the con staff as to why they booked a certain guest! This person later apologized and said this: "I suppose he could've changed since the stories I've heard of first hand accounts in

Comments RantSo I don't know who all you guys follow on DA, some of you may have seen it, but a fellow Yogscast fan artist made a Journal post tonight pointing out that some people were telling her in comments and/or notes that the way she draws certain characters is wrong basically.Comments Rant2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This shocked me at first, that people would actually be that rude and selfishly picky. Then I realized, I've actually gotten some of those comments as well, and I felt the need to rant.
Let me make something very clear.
I don't care how much you like a character.
I don't care how devoted you are to a series.
I don't care how much lore you have memorized.
I don't care if you have a characters original canon look memorized.
It is NEVER okay to tell an artist that their own interpretation of a character is wrong and then to inform them of what they need to change.
Do you comment on a fanfiction and tell the writer they're wrong because they wrote their story in a way you wouldn't have? No? Then don't tell an artist they'r
Very important, please read.Hello everyone!Very important, please read.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've got some pretty depressing and personal things to tell you so …prepare yourselves.
I'm sorry but this is important and I want you to read this.
First of all, I want to thank you. Thank you for something you don't even know you've done. But it will be explained in this text.
As you all probably know, life has its ups and downs. Sometimes it gives you lemons, sometimes you go through really tough times and sometimes the unthinkable happen and you don't even know if you are strong enough to survive it.
For me and my family this year has been very, very though.
Today it's been a year since my stepfather died.
When someone really close to you passes away, it's hard to accept it and even harder to move on. But when a person you love. A person you trust chooses to take his/her own life, it's indescribable. You can't even think about moving on. You are left with so many questions and feelings you can hardly think straight.
But one thing is certain: life will never be the s
An EndingAn ending is sad, always.An Ending2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Not just because a life ends, or something that causes a loss.
We cry in joy at creation because we know that entropy will eventually destroy it, so we cry while we are happy at the new life.
A story's end is no less different.
When a writer finishes those last lines of a long story, or on a poem, they are almost reluctant. Its like killing the lives of the characters, the feelings in the words. It's hard to kill something you put so much time into. So much life.
As a reader, I cry at the end of a book sometimes because I know that there's no going back. I absorb the stories, the glimpses into other's imaginations. But endings are sad because for those adventurers there will be no more adventures.
But each ending is a beginning. As is so with artists. We create. In our creations we are able to see entropy around us.
Late night philosophic writing. Yey me.

Murphy Apprenticeship wrap-upHey all!Murphy Apprenticeship wrap-up1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I should have written something sooner regarding the Murphy Apprenticeship (where I took 5 students into my house in Maine and taught them comics for 2 weeks). Mostly I think I wanted to let the experience settle in before saying much about it. And now that I've had a few weeks back to my real life in NYC, I think I'm ready to post.
For photos and a student's perspective on the Murphy Apprenticeship, check out Tana Ford's page:
Here are the names of the students for the 2014 winter session (along with their Twitter):

As I have projects that are due

But my mind says no
Because screw the rules and Whale-sharks are awesome

TalentPlease artists, take a time and read it.Talent2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A lot of people is been asking me recently about what I do to create, how I developed my work, if I have any formal study in arts, or if it's only "talent". Oh, talent, that damn word. I don't disregard talent at all, but what I really think is that's a complete waste of time for us as artists to underestimate the value of HARD WORK. Talent is a given, Hard work is coachable, and that's all. Simple math. Here's an excerpt of text that says it all:
"Talent is, in common parlance, 'what comes easily'. So, sooner or later, inevitably, you reach a point where the work doesn't come easily, and, -Aha!, it's just what you feared.
Wrong. By definition, whatever you have is exactly what you need to produce your best work. There's probably no clearer waste of psychic energy than worrying about how much talent you have- And probably no worry more common.
Talent, if it is anything, is a gift, and nothing of the artist's own making.
What's going on!?So.What's going on!?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Apparently some guy named Zakku Bergman claimed himself being ...me.
Or. Eh, I don't know if that was his intention.
I don't know!!
..What do I even know?
All I know is that my name is not Zakku.
Yogscast uploaded this photo on their facebook and twitter for those of you who don't know.
Amazing! ..but wrong name guys!
Now people belive I'm a man. A man named Zakku Bergman. Also I've been called Pewdiepie.
I don't even know what to feel about this :iconwthplz:
So, It was just a misunderstanding! This guy's intention was clearly not to claim himself being me.
But. Yogscast haven't changed their text so it still says Zakku Bergman.

The true meaning of EasterA priest was teaching his Sunday school class about Easter. He took a seat on his desk in the front of the class and asked, “Who here can tell me the true meaning of Easter?”The true meaning of Easter1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Sean, a first-grader in the front of the class, raised his hand. The priest gestured to him.
"Easter means you get to eat a bunch of chocolate and candy and hunt for eggs," Sean said.
"Well," said the priest, "That’s certainly part of Easter, you’re right. But that isn’t the true meaning of Easter.”
Sophie, a first-grader sitting next to Sean, then raised her hand.
"Yes, Sophie?" the priest said, nodding encouragingly. "Can you tell us what the true meaning of Easter is?"
"Easter means you get to buy new clothes because all the stores in the mall are having their spring sales," Sophie said.
The priest chuckled. “That’s definitely a part of Easter. But it isn’t the true meaning. Can anyo
Cliche's in Street PhotographyStreet Photography WeekCliche's in Street Photography1 month ago in Art Features More Like This
Street photography isn't about judgement, it is about visual impact. There is a tendency among some viewers to make hasty cliché presumptions about Street photography. Most of the major painters copied others at the early stages of their careers. Photographers photographing clichés is just a natural step in their development. Sometimes even the photographers do not know if their shot resembles another one. The journal "Similitude Street" is a perfect example where two different photographers' photos resemble each other in a very close way.
Clichés are not necessarily bad. It's the emotional element that turns mere cliches into works that are relevant and emotionally resonant.
It's this emotional aspect that breathes life into all work, cinematic, photographic, or what have you, no matter how many times they have been visited in the past.
The great themes in life never go out of fashion, after all. While our en

NightclanNightclan2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Welcome to Nightclan, the darkest of the Territories. Covered in thick pine forest that cuts out most of the light, the only clearings being near the Highclan Border where the Submurged Stone is (Also known as Union Rock). Nightclan is led by Hemlockstar, a firm but thoughtful Leader who may agitate the other Clans, but prefers to keep himself to himself.
Nightclan Borders Stoneclan, Highclan, Leafclan and Seaclan, and is close by to the Meeting place where Clans meet up for Gatherings.
Cats of Nightclan
Sleek coats of medium to long length, Nightclan cats can see well in the dark, giving them an advantage in their own territory. The most successful hunters have darker pelts that hide them more successfully in the bushes and t
'Irony' by Leelee English DubI didn't find the lyrics anywhere, and this is like my straight-up heart song, so....'Irony' by Leelee English Dub2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It feels like walking has become another chore
I don't think I can go on walking anymore
So please forgive me for these words, I know they're cliched to you
But life is tiring, my feet are getting sore
I wish that I could have a bit of time
To heal the ache that's growing stronger all the time
But I know time stops for nobody, let alone me
And so I go, inevitably
Whenever things are going rather happily
It turns out life is just playing a trick on me
It's slightly shameful to admit the truth, I end up in tears
And so begins the same old melancholy
I miss when life was just simplicity
And misery wasn't always chasing after me
It's pretty obvious now, I should've left my regret
But I held onto it so foolishly
Maybe I overreacted a bit, hasn't destroyed me yet, has it
But everything I desire is always just too far to get
Honestly, it's just me, brainlessly, so silly
Always hoping f
Tenkai Knights = NinjaGoOk, so I saw a commercial for this show called Tenkai Knights on Cartoon Network. HEY I said that looks like an anime of Ninjago! (and ya its like for ages 7 and up or something)Tenkai Knights = NinjaGo2 years ago in Personal More Like This
WELL, It turns out, the characters are a TON like Ninjago!!
Guren: Color is red, power is energy. He is the main character. (think kai!)
Ceylan: Color is blue; he is a real jokster. Power, speed. (jay!)
Chooki: Mellow guy; color yellow, power light (i think), (zane!)
Toxsa: DUDE. IS. COLE. power strength color green.
Just like the ninja, they are always coming up with retarded catch phrases lol.
Well anyway I feel kinda dumb watching a show meant for younger boys, but hey, I got a little brother. And besides, its like Ninjago all over again!
