His Books of Blood in the 1980s established him as a premier master of the horror narrative, on an equal level or even surpassing Stephen King, who said of him;

Like King, Barker’s works of horror have been adopted and adapted for movies, his stories becoming the basis for the Hellraiser and Candyman series and many more. Beyond his stories being used as source material, Barker has worked as screenwriter, producer, actor and director in the film world.

Skyrim - DLC - First ImpressionsPlease keep in mind this is first impressions, and I haven't really played through much of any of them yet. Just enough to get an "idea" of where it's going and how the new gameplay works.Skyrim - DLC - First Impressions1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I decided to download the 3 DLC packs for Skyrim to help liven things up. It took quite a bit of tinkering to get it to work, but I finally got them installed and running properly. Just thought I’d give y’all my first impressions from them since I installed them all at the same time.
First up, the update actually greatly improved my frame rate and runs the game a LOT smoother than it was before. However, that came at the price of the controls. All the buttons got re-mapped to weird combos and some buttons don’t do the same thing anymore even when reassigned. It also adjusted the vertical speed of the cursor (something I originally complained about), but because I got use to the broken cursor, this improvement actually felt kinda... odd at first. I’m still tr

Stolen art on conventions in PolandYesterday I came back from Otakon convention in Warsaw. As usual I had a small stand together with :icongoku-no-baka: with badges and small prints with our pictures. Sale was pretty ok but I spotted a few really depressing things.Stolen art on conventions in Poland2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all most of stands were just offering stuff with stolen pictures - not only official ones but also from DeviantArt, Pixiv(poor Japanese artist who post their pictures in high resolution), everything printed in low quality on badges, t-shirts, pillow covers etc The sellers were making really big money on it especially when they had low prices(for shitty quality prints), becouse people will buy cheap stuff anyway.
Second thing was a fact that me and Goku were only artists that were still trying to sell their art. It's not like we don't have talented manga-style artists in this country. There are really many of them - even here, on DA. Most of them used to go for conventions with their stands but ones with pictures downloaded from internet "killed" most

Sexism in Gaming Culture LINKSSo... that last journal was a doosie wasn't it? 500+ comments and counting! Yikes. I can always count on Anita Sarkeesian to give me tons of views, lol. All joking aside, that was a very serious batch of discussions. Anytime we talk about sexism and objectification of women in gaming or geek culture, it's sure to get a lot of responses.Sexism in Gaming Culture LINKS1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Sadly since Anita is such a hot-topic around the internet, there was more than one person who were trying to claim that there actually isn't ANY issue with the game industry involving sexism at all. To them, this whole idea that women are marginalized or objectified or treated badly both in the gaming industry and in geek culture is just false. It doesn't exist. And any attempt to explain why we need to change things is inherently flawed because there's no reason to do so.
So in the interest of trying to debunk that bullshit, I made a list of sources I accumulated around the internet to prove that this is indeed a problem. I think everyone can benefit f
Duped.Fake CommissionDuped.7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Recently I found out that one of the commissions I undertook a while back was, in fact, a setup. It was hired by forum members of Encyclopedia Dramatica, one of whom I actually use to talk to and have good discussions with. They pooled their resources to pay for it, sent me the info and money, and then proceeded to sit back and document everything I did or didn’t do per their highly specific criterias. The user in question then posting a lengthy take-down (though through a disclaimer on the top of the journal it’s clearly not a takedown! lulz!) here on DA.
Here is the commission:
The journal in question talks at great length about my seemingly lack of transparency. IE: that I don’t communicate every little facet of what I’m doing to them, such as the number of commissions I have, what my “job” is, what my home schedule is like, etc. And honestly? This is WHY I’m not transpar
One Myth I Wish I Could Dispel"Feminism means you can't like sexy things"One Myth I Wish I Could Dispel1 year ago in Personal More Like This
After doing a series of comics standing up for women's rights, there's a lot of really negative rumors going on around me right now. Most of which point to the hypocrisy that I use to draw fetish artwork and that recently I made pin-ups that were "sexy" in nature. Because, of course, if you're an artist who stands up for women's rights from that moment on you're not allowed to EVER draw women in a way that might be construed as potentially "sexy," lest you be labeled a hypocrite.
As I've mentioned before in previous journals, I really can't stand this mentality the internet has of polarizing extremes. You've always gotta be in one extreme or you're in the other. There's never the possibility that you could be in the middle like, you know, a normal person would be.
I understand why that is: it's easier to point out fallacies and bitch and whine about people when they fit into nice neat black and white spec

OH MY GOD.
Ok, I should have listened and not go to the funeral. But I won't forgive myself ever. I kinda had to go.
It's raining and will be storming outside soon. I feel sick (I'm actually sick lol) and depressed. No, depressed isn't the right word. I'm not sad about his passing away anymore but I just have this strange sinking feeling in my chest. And the air feels so haunting.
It's hot as balls right now in the middle of winter in my room. I'm prancing around in the tank top and it's still hot.
When my uncle died...the night he visited us. Our room was hot as hell...my sisters and mom who slept in the same room (we were little) all felt the heat.
When the random dude I saw dying in the pond of my house (well I saw his corspe)...I have this "sinking" feeling as well. That's when he begun following me. And each summer around June to July are the most frightening month because strange things keep happening in my house. Like getting a note on my phone written by no one
