Parody vs Pastiche and other Humorous ExamplesJust for fun I thought I'd do a rundown of the most common forms of humor, their definitions, and examples. This is not a complete list by any means, but they are a list of many forms of humor and literature discourse which often get confused of mixed up.Parody vs Pastiche and other Humorous Examples10 months ago in Personal More Like This
An imitative work created to mock, comment on or trivialize an original work, its subject, author, style, or some other target, by means of satiric or ironic imitation.
Example: The movie "Airplane" is a parody of 1970's disaster movies. Many of Weird Al's music videos are parodies of other more famous music videos.
A work of visual art, literature, or music that imitates the style or character of the work of one or more other artists. Unlike parody, pastiche celebrates, rather than mocks, the work it imitates.
Example: The movie "Super 8" is a pastiche of 1980's adventure films, specifically imitating the style of Stephen Spielberg's early career,

Pick a sideThis is just going to be a rant about something that has been on my mind for a while.Pick a side9 months ago in Personal More Like This
I keep hearing people, religious or atheists, say "You have to pick a side. Picking a side is important. Are you religious or atheist? Picking a middle way like agnostic is cowardly"
You want to know what side I'm on? I'm on the side of I want state and religion to be separate and for it to otherwise not matter.
It's usually people who come from countries where religion still has a big hand in law who feel strongly about this, and I can understand why. Where they come from it is important, but the entire world isn't like that. In the part of the world I come from it doesn't matter if you're religious or not.
You don't want the abortion because of your religion? Fine, no one is going to force you, but if you do, you can have it. You don't want to get married in a church or have your child baptized? Fine, we'll take care of that at the City Hall. You're gay and want to get married in a church, but
Other M, Kickstarter, and Frozen Vs TangledOther M DramaOther M, Kickstarter, and Frozen Vs Tangled7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Hey everyone, just wanted to say sorry for starting up more Other M drama. It still fascinates me how just mentioning the name of the game causes so many people to get so angry. I guess I thought maybe the hatred for it had died down, but I was wrong. So sorry to any of my fans who might’ve been caught up in any frustrating debates or flame wars as a result. That’s my bad, I’ll try to not let it happen again

I Hate April Fools DayNot because I’ve ever “been the fool” in a April 1st Prank or anything, but more or less because I have to endure the MONTHS upon MONTHS of people who unironically believe whatever bullshit joke a company decided to make on the internet that day.I Hate April Fools Day5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Some companies do the joke well, like YouTube when they announced the complete YouTube DVD collection, or when they turned all the videos into old timey black and white film strips.
But others, more commonly associated with the entertainment media, usually just create a fake new story that unfortunately spreads like wild-fire. I STILL see people unironically blaming Nintendo for never releasing Wind Waker with updated Twilight Princess models and textures.... based on an april fools joke made in 2005!
And part of the ire I have about this day comes from how VOLATILE and quick to HATE on everything is on the internet. Nobody actually stops and thinks before they post anything, so jokes like this usually just end up devolving i

Las Vegas deviantMEET Wrap-Up!Las Vegas deviantMEET Wrap-Up!9 months ago in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
Our first-ever deviantMEET in Las Vegas hit the jackpot!
On Sunday, December 1st, deviants were already lined up outside the doors at 5:00 PM, even though the event wasn't scheduled to start until 5:30! (A handful of amazingly dedicated super deviants arrived as early as 3:30 PM!) Far be it for us to wait to get the party started, so we opened the doors a little early, allowing the crowd to rush in. After signing our guestbook – we know, physical guestbooks are so Web 1.0, but they're great mementos! – our devious artists dispersed to play at the deviantART booth.
Stocked with six Intuos 5 Wacom tablets to play with, a 24-inch Cintiq, SketchBook Pro for sketching and painting, enough table seating for traditional drawing and portfolio review, and bags upon bags of free swag (including stress balls, deviantART Sharpies, and tons of free stickers), everyone found an awesome and creative way to spend their time.

Sucker PunchedThis is a LONG one so settle in!Sucker Punched10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I’ve been re-watching Sucker Punch a lot lately and have been humorously admiring how misunderstood it is. It’s almost comical how a movie that comes right out and says “I am about the negative connotations surrounding the constant sexual abuse and objectification that women endure,” gets reviewed and dismissed as “just another pandering male geek fantasy of objectified sexualized women.”
I could write a book on the various subtle metaphors and messages Sucker Punch visualizes, but I don’t wanna bore you all. But to demonstrate what I mean let’s just dissect a small piece of it.
Before we begin we need to understand two things. First, Director Zach Snyder made the film with the express intent of it being a feminist critique on geek culture. If you don’t believe me, hear it from his own words: http://www.filmschoolrejects.com/features/interview-zack-snyder-on-the-sexuality-and-world
My foray into the world of Skyrim... Day 8Day 8My foray into the world of Skyrim... Day 810 months ago in Personal More Like This
I stumbled upon a young treasure hunter and her sidekick. They were about to enter a temple and loot it and I joined their campaign. However her sidekick turned out to be corrupt and evil and I was forced to murder him. Learned a new word in the process but I felt pretty bad for the lady.
I then moved onwards in the direction of Dawnstar. Along the way I stumbled upon a couple's make-out camp. I don't know what else you'd call it. It was a tent overlooking a beach with two beds side by side littered with flowers and empty wine bottles. Pretty cold area to get frisky but... who am I to judge?
I'd been to Dawnstar before but this time I managed to trigger the quest to rid the nightmares that had been plaguing the city. After making it through the temple I was given the option to let Erandur complete his incantation to rid the miasma, or murder him and steal the evil skull. I kinda like the quests where evil is trying to tempt you but you're able to disobey their

In other news, there's a great new program for comic artists that I would like to share. It's part of Tapastic's Primetime Publishing Program (PPP) that pays comic artists based on the amount of page views they generate.

If you're not a comic artist, you can still check out all the cool webcomics on Tapastic.com and help support the artists that way

Good News, Bad NewsSo the good news is that the new technique of posting a preview image with a link to my website does indeed generate quite a bit more of extra activity to my ad revenue generating pages. From the few tests I’ve done so far I get on average an extra 2-3,000 views than when I post the comic on DA with a link.Good News, Bad News6 months ago in Personal More Like This
The bad news is that this means it’s in my best interest to post more stuff on my various websites, and not on DA. Which is problematic because I enjoy interacting with my fans here on DA far more than I do on my website. I like having everything kinda all together in one place and this new technique kinda disrupts that flow. While it’s in my best interest, it also kinda feels a little cheap and annoying.
Maybe I’ll be able to combine the two at some point, updating the older previews with the full comics/art like a few weeks down the road, but I don’t know. It’s also sadly likely in my best interest to update all my older strips that are still po
