Alleyway IncidentHiya Ryceballs. I left out something on my previous journal, something I kinda wanted to talk about but was a bit scared to... But I have decided that maybe its better to get it off my chest. This is a true story and it happened two weeks ago while I was in Melbourne for Armageddon Expo, it was a sunday night, I had a long day selling artworks and I was back in the hotel room chilling, at around 10pm I got hungry and realised I don't have much to eat, I didn't wanna call room service because I wasn't sure if food is still available that late. So knowing the 24/7 grocery store is just a block away, I decided to head out to buy a cup noodle or something. It was pretty dark outside with a bit of rain as well, much to my annoyance, but I was really really hungry. Now the proper way to get to the grocery store is to walk around the block, OR I can take a shortcut and go through the alleyway.... I tend to always walk around the block as I didn't wanna get mugged, if Batman has taught me anytAlleyway Incident1 year ago in Personal More Like This
That art thief SOB in the Artist AlleyOk here it is, the long awaited journal about that art thief guy at Animania a few weeks back, I promised I will write about it and here it is. I thought a lot about whether I should write about this because if its just a random art thief then I really don't mind dissing his grass.. but unfortunately that S.O.B also happens to be the brother of a High School friend of mine... :icontableflipplz:That art thief SOB in the Artist Alley1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This whole thing occurred in an anime convention that has been going downhill since a few years back, every year it gets worse and worse, to the point that I am now calling it Emptimania. It is no secret that the management is terrible, and that includes making sure that there are no bootleg stores around.... I don't know if they are just ignorant that there are bootleg stores there, or whether they dont give a duck because hey they get money from people getting a table. So anyway I was at the artist alley selling my things like usual, then a couple of tables down I noticed a guy, he looked fami

SAY HELLO TO YOUR THIRD UNCLE'S WIFE'S MOTHER'S BROTHER'S SON'S STEP SISTER'S CAT'S COUSIN'S FATHER'S OWNER'S DAUGHTER'S SECOND BROTHER: Thats me in the middle (Not really) reading a book with a lot of relatives looking at me with their creepy faces. The thing is that all of those uncles has different unique titles, like 2nd uncle, 3rd uncle, 4th uncle. Then it can get more complicated like 2nd uncle's son, 3rd uncle's daughter. Then it can get even more complicated when you have to remember the title for relatives like your uncle's son's wife's mother's brother! And trust me even a complicated link like that has a unique title in chinese, and I am supposed to remember the title... Oh by the way as a duty from the youngest person in the family
Tales of the missing Car Park TicketThis happened two days ago when I had to go to a shopping mall called Westfield. I was there to receive my copy of Zelda Skyward Sword as well as trading in the frustrating Goldeneye Reloaded for possibly Skyrim.Tales of the missing Car Park Ticket3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The story begins as I drove to Westfield, got into the car park, its one of those car parks that requires you to get a ticket and if you are only there for 3 hours or less you wouldn't need to pay anything, then they charge you per hour after etc etc. My mind was still deep in thoughts about my grandfather's death that happened a few days ago so I wasn't really paying attention to what's happening around me. So I got into the shopping mall, got Skyward Sword, got rid of the stupid annoying Goldeneye Reloaded and traded it in for Skyrim. I then walked around the mall a little bit, went into Toys R Us and wandered around like a pedophile, I even went into the girls section for a bit (What? I like Monster High, don't judge me.) I spent around half an hour in the mall pretty much,

After Emptimania 2013 (And I rant)Hi guys LOL what a weekend! Remember last year when I talked about how bad Animania 2012 was? How empty it was? How bad the organisation was? Well this year its even worse XD It was so bad I joked that its more like Emptimania 2013. I remember there was a time when Animania was THE convention to go to, you had lots of people there all dressing up, everyone was into it, it was in a great location, it was also my first ever convention I went to, I dressed up as L and my beautiful ex dressed up as Misa. But now it seems like everyone dislike Animania to the point of hating it. Its understandable though, the entry price for one day is now a ripping $40, theres hardly any stores there selling stuff, one store even sold bootleg stuff, and Animania didn't do anything about it. Thats right, I was a few tables away from a bootleg store, the guy had posters of Miku and Shingeki no Kyojin that he 'claimed' he commissioned other artists to do, I further pushed him asking who these artists are andAfter Emptimania 2013 (And I rant)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Symbol(s) for the non Premium DeviantsHello my Ryceballs. So eversince DA's recent symbol changes, I have been hearing a lot of complaints. Mostly about how regular non premium members don't even get a symbol. It makes them feel like they are not important. Its ok I hear ya I hear ya. And you know me, I am all about the people. Ry-Spirit cares. So I thought about this a lot and try to think of an appropriate symbol that best suits our non premium friends, at the end I came up with a symbol... WELL I say a symbol but its more like a string of symbols. I feel like this is the only option for it to work. And I have used myself as an example of what the symbols would look like if I am in fact a regular deviant.

Back from EB Expo 2013Hiya Ryceballs, I was at EB Expo 2013 last weekend to help out my friend Carlton on promoting his game Cell Surgeon. For more info on the game you can check out the company's facebook page. http://www.facebook.com/injoylabs I had free tickets to go for all three days, it was quite tiring because on two days it was from 9 in the morning till 9 at night.. yeah it was crazy. But it was fun none the less, got to try out many games and consoles including the PS4, Xbone, new Wii U games, Octodad, Knack, Beyond 2 souls, Pokemon Xandy as well as retro games such as Goldeneye and Super Mario. Now before I went to the Expo, I had no mercy for the Xbone, with their whole controversial decisions a couple of months back, I was not even gonna try out the xbone because of that. But... theres less people in the Microsoft area.. and there was a game that I really wanted to play, the game being KILLER INSTINCT, so I played it (many many times) and I gota say this could be my favouriBack from EB Expo 20131 year ago in Personal More Like This

Nintendo STEALS Money!Since this has been going around lately, I should probably give my two cents. Basically what it amounts to is that Nintendo has filed Content ID info of their games with YouTube. What this means is that if you upload gameplay video of a Nintendo game, YouTube will automatically monetize that video, put ads on it, a link to where to buy the game, and take the money generated from that video and give it directly to Nintendo. People who do "let's play" videos are, naturally, pissed off because they want to be earning money off their videos, so they're calling Nintendo "thieves" for doing this.Nintendo STEALS Money!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I can see both sides to the story. I can see Nintendo as a corporation wanting to exercise control over their properties. On the other hand, "let's play" videos can often help new gamers find games they otherwise wouldn't have tried.
But here's the thing: Nintendo isn't the first company do this. Both Microsoft and Ubisoft do it already. YouTube has also had a long history of having music videos and

I believe that Minecraft is the future of massive multiplayer games, and I'm surprised that none of the big developers/publishers have cottoned onto it yet.
They look at Minecraft and think its success is down to its business model, or to its blocky, retro charm.
It's down to the fact that you get out of it what you put into it.
With a MMORPG, there are pre-scripted quests. With Minecraft, you set the quests yourself or others.
User created content is the key. All you have to do is provide the players with the tools to build.
There are two types of gamer: wall builders and wall breakers.
Wall builders are the ones that spend an age in an RTS game getting their base just right. They play SimCity and act as Dungeon Master during an RPG.
Wall breakers are the type to follow the mission brief. They get set a quest and they follow it. They're the Call of Duty crowd and they're never more happy than when

Is only for your sake,
Though I am sure what I desire,
Is not what you admire,
There's too much pain,
And not enough gain,
I don't have enough sight,
To continue my might,
I'm just a boy,
Who's constantly used as a toy,
My only fear,
Is to lose the few I hold dear,
I attempted a few,
But admit I couldn't follow through,
I think I have a reason,
For she has shown me no treason,
She has no clue,
Of the things she can do,
Her smile is so bright,
Always my light,
I have stood my ground,
Just to hear her sound,
I will get up again,
To fight against this sin.

I remember once I was on my way to work, and I saw a turtle start to make its way across the roadside. He was REALLY TEARIN' IT UP for a turtle. xD I didn't even know they could move that fast. Its chubby turtle feet were flying. But I was already past it! I was trying to think of what to do, should I turn around?
I looked in the rear-view mirror and a truck was coming. D: As I watched, the truck started to turn TOWARDS the turtle, and I'm thinking, oh my god, this jerk is trying to kill it! ...But after angling his truck a bit to make sure no cars could pass, the HUGE, MANLY TRUCK DRIVER hops out of the cabin, runs over to the turtle, grabs it like a football, and tears off across the road into the woods to let it go.
So many people don't even bother to stop for animals on their way to work, but not only did he stop, but he personally escorted it

In this icing rain? Really?
Anyways, I arrived and in walked a beautiful, large round-eyed woman in her 25s to early 30s, buckling herself inside my messy car.
Younger than I expected ( our clients are usually 40s+) Definitely prettier than expected.
Anyways, I found out she's in for a divorce against her abusive husband. She was smart enough to save images of her and her son's bruised faces to use as evidence.
She's 30. Been in the US for a year. Abused, beaten, and controlled by her husband. She claimed he would not let her learn English nor drive her to work. She wanted to work so she just go to Eden ( a shopping center I do NOT go to lol, full of them Vietnamese people & several sketchy places after dark.)
The lawyer supposedly handling her case was out of the office. I simply took down her information. I offered her advices such as seek
