2014 CLEAN SWEEP: PLEASE READ! Weekly Update 12/29Kazu says2014 CLEAN SWEEP: PLEASE READ! Weekly Update 12/294 months ago in Personal More Like This
HELLO, GUESTS. I bring to you today a VERY important announcement so sit down, open your ears and LISTEN. Remember my last little announcement about this? No? Well, for the 2014 new year, the mansion brings to you the "2014 HIEMS MANSION BIG CLEAN SWEEP". What does this mean you ask? It means PLENTY. The clean sweep includes kicking your asses out before opening up again, it means new application criteria on these things *waves a blank app around*, it means no more dead bodies lying around. Oh, oh, that's not all. That's just the beginning of it aahemm. All will be explained within due time. Moving on...
Hey guys! Like said, the 2014 Hiems Clean Sweep is now in motion, so what that really means is that we'll be doing a whole lot of renovations this following month of January. I've compiled a bulleted list here of some of the things you can expect to be changing soon and what you as a returning/leaving guest should do:

[What To Draw, Exactly?]
Contest is to simply draw Cryo.
Please read all information before entering.
Cold / Harsh / Dark
Cryo is a stubborn yet quiet character. She tends to keep to herself and does not let her
thoughts get out often. She's cold and uncaring, one who does not care for others or help
anyone unless there is something that can be given back. She will kill without a second thought,
and will not feel guilt. On another hand she is quite shy and timid when

Watcher Contest - L. Faust Signed Prize!EDIT No. 1: Only a week and some odd days to go and I only need 5 more watchers to meet the 100 entries mark. I must admit, I am a bit shocked that this didn't spread more, but hey, what can you do? I suppose people don't care about Lauren Faust autographed work, or they don't like the subject material its on.Watcher Contest - L. Faust Signed Prize!9 months ago in Personal More Like This
EDIT No. 2: I hit the +100 entrants milestone! That means the first bonus prize is active, and an additional prize of a wooden plaque (or digital drawing, winners choice), will be given out! Hooray! One more week for entries!
Regardless of which, a few more watchers and I'll open up the next prize slot.
Also, I want to make a change to the third place prize. If you do not want a premium dA memebership, you can instead choose a full-color and shaded artwork for a show or OC pony(s) . I understand not everyone wants a premium dA membership.
Now that I am back from Bronycon and can devote some time to art again, it's time to announce my
Rules, About, and Guidelines- OH MYAbout the MansionRules, About, and Guidelines- OH MY3 months ago in Personal More Like This
Q: Where is the Mansion?
A: The Mansion is located on Hiems Island in the middle of the Despiral Lake. Around the Despiral Lake, there is another circle of land containing the Forest. From above, this land formation looks eerily similar to a giant eyeball! Where exactly the entire island is located, however, is still a mystery, for you must first be hopelessly lost in a dense fog before you can reach it! How strange…
Q: What is a Ligt? Why should I earn them?
A: A ligt is akin to the Mansion’s monetary unit, like a dollar or a pound. It looks like a glowing, colorful marble. You can earn ligts by participating in events around the mansion, submitting pictures and stories to the gallery, or other opportunities that may present themselves! With these ligts, you can purchase things from the Ligt Store, show off how active you are in Hiems Mansion, or, if you save enough, create an addit

MY EFFING CAR CAUGHT FIRE. AWESOME.I wasn't really expecting to spend the other morning stood by the side of the road, watching my car going up in flames.MY EFFING CAR CAUGHT FIRE. AWESOME.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Yet, there I was.
BEST. TUESDAY. EVER.
Don't ask me how it happened. I have no idea. Although, there are clues to be found in that the fire started at the back of the engine, near the top where all the fuel-related plumbing can be found.
All I know is the car began juddering, lost power, and after pulling over and opening the bonnet I found flames licking up the engine bay.
Now, it's common sense to (a) NOT open the lid to the engine bay and (b) move a large distance from your car if it catches fire. Everyone should know this. But fuck that noise, that's my fucking car, and the flames were small, so I had to do something. I had a giant bottle of water in the back in case I ever ran out of wiper fluid or needed to top up the coolant for some reason. So I grabbed that and doused the flames, sloshing it down the back of the engine. Where I saw the pollen filter ca

My Top 10 Worst ClichesSince I'm reviewing episodes again, and the latest episode seemed to have a mixed reaction, I thought I'd tell you my top 10 worst cliches from cartoons, movies, whatever. This isn't going to be in any particular order (as you already know my biggest pet peeves), but these are just what kill a story for me. It can be done well, but it's usually not done well, nor are they often even necessary. A lot of the problem is not only how bad I find them, but how prevalent they are. Most of the cliches, I've seen everywhere. They're predictable, they're annoying, and if they're in an upcoming episode, you could probably expect me to fail it.My Top 10 Worst Cliches5 months ago in Personal More Like This
10: Mopey Dopey Love Talk
I do not care about romance stories in the slightest, but I can find interest in them if they're done naturally and believably. I understand that people get "the butterflies" when they've got a crush on someone, but whenever this trope comes out the story stops dead in its tracks. The dialogue is obviously unimportant and it
Byter and the vicseral hatred of MLP season three While the second season of MLP:FIM had certainly left some crack in the brony community, the third season the series utterly shattered it. Fandom reactions of the third season have range from ecstatic praise to cynical loathing. For me, season three was initially pretty underwhelming, and that most of the episodes overall didn't hit that level of quality that seasons one and two hit. But looking back, I largely attribute it mainly to hype backlash, and the fact it was only thirteen episodes. Since then, season three has grown on me, and even then, this doesn't explain the incredible amount of hatred this season has garnered. I'm sure we probably all know about the infamous TGWTG contributor Chad Rocco aka CR. But while Chad had pretty much left the fandom by the time Equestria Girls was announced. There are still plenty of anti-season three fan members out and about. Let's discuss one by the username of Byter.

20 Episodes I Want to See in Friendship is MagicWhile working on Admirable Animation, I usually think of what these episodes would be like Friendship is Magic, so I decided to make a list (in no particular order). These are 20 episodes that have happened in various other cartoons that I'd like to see happen in Friendship is Magic because I think that that plot would resonate well with the setting and characters of Friendship is Magic. Yeah, a lot of them are Admirable Animations/AA Candidates, but a lot of them aren't. I didn't really create any rules for this, except the former.20 Episodes I Want to See in Friendship is Magic5 months ago in Personal More Like This

She learns that it's about to be a mother and cannot be disturbed. Unfortunately Celestia really wants/needs whatever that
Cry's BioCry (Cryaotic) is a Let's Player on Youtube. In other words, he makes videos of gaming commentary.Cry's Bio2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"Cry" isn't his real name, but everyone calls him Cry because of his username "Cryaotic". His Youtube username is Chaoticmonki (He made that when he was 13. Don't judge. XD). He started making videos a few years ago when he felt like he should do something more with his life other than playing World of Warcraft for 20 hours each day.
He usually known for his horror gaming, but he also plays smaller Indie games and games with a good story-line. People seem to enjoy his commentary on games, they find it pretty amusing and entertaining. Other than commentary, he also does "Cry Reads" where he read stories, mainly horror. He's also known to do Co-Op with another Let's Player called PewDiePie (Fans ship them together. Oh yay ) and he also does livestreams for about eight hours on Saturdays in which he plays video games online, answers questions about himself
