Why Alienate A Demographic?Fair warning. If the following words cause blinding rage do not read further.Why Alienate A Demographic?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
'Friendship', 'is' and 'magic'.
Consider yourself warned...
As you may know (and trust me it's a surprise to me more then anyone) I actually really enjoyed Lauren Faust's re-imagining of the My Little Pony series, although that like came slowly and reluctantly.
The reason was that the trappings of the show were clearly geared in large part towards a demographic I do not encompass. I am neither pre-teen nor a girl and the combination of colors and 'cute' elements all skewed towards attracting that age group and gender. It might seem that I'm the one being stereotypical but the truth is that marketing companies oftentimes utilize specific aesthetic to supposedly reel in viewers of a certain distinction. This might not always work but when it does its assumed to be a success on behalf of the brand.
However to me Friendship is Magic at times reached beyond this arbitrary line. There were inside jokes tailored tow
Sonic Lost World Final ThoughtsI.......I'm so fucking flustered I got nothing else to say right now.....but I can say this....when you're locked onto a target DO NOT PRESS ANY OTHER BUTTON BUT THE A BUTTON! I just spent the better half of my playthrough all the way up to the first fight with Zavok unaware that the Homing Attack was NOT the Y or X button.....worst experience I've ever had playing a modern Sonic game. Whoever thought it was a good idea to add this "flying Kick" move needs to be kicked in the crotch by a donkey, I just put myself through hell and was so close to smashing my Wii U against the wall because some asshole at Sonic Team thought it would be funny to design a useless move that homes in on targets just the same as the crucial method needed to fight bosses. For the sake of your own sanity do not use the Flying Kick under any circumstance, it does nothing but kick away enemies and does jack shit against bosses!

Five Friends of various diversities have been sent by a mysterious force to combat racism and hatred among people who should be working together. Later some friends join as an auxiliary team to combat Sexism and Anti Gays. The E.P. Rangers do battle Sexism and racism, but not to levels of beating them to death, but actually helping resolve issues between people on something as trivial as Race Gender or preference of the latter.
Call me racist if you want for making the pride Rangers, but Really, I'm not.

I know I'm not the only one who can say it
But I do have you as a dad.
I couldn't really ask for much better,
I am proud my last name has a G for the first letter.
I'm not much, but you're a king.
You can play guitar, you can sing.
You can make sausage after you bag the meat.
and I gotta say, Deer's a real treat.
Thank to my dad.
Who does all he can
just so I won't turn out bad.
You're a great father, and a Bluegrass man.
I love you dad.
To this poem, can no one else I add?
No, for they do not have you
Some have none at all, thinkin' about it makes me blue.
but sill, I know I can say, I have the only dad as rad as you.

Thoughts on Religion by Bob "Moviebob" CI found these entries from his blog pretty intriguing, and wanted to share them:Thoughts on Religion by Bob "Moviebob" C4 years ago in Personal More Like This
To say that "all religion is bad" is an oversimplification bordering on intellectual bigotry and does not hold up to any measure of scrutiny. However, to say that "NO religion is bad" is equally over-simplified and holds up even less. I can think of FOUR religions, off the top of my head, that would make the world a better place by having their influence diminished to near-total obscurity - two of them are very large, two of them are sort of new, one of them is VERY new, and none of them are Judaism or Buddhism. Have fun guessing.
Science has not and probably will not "disprove" the existance of God. However, it's doing a very good job of making the prospect of an all-knowing, loving, benevolent God to seem very, very unlikely. Ironically, the much more ancient notion of god(s) as a super-powerful yet petty and scatterbrain

5 Year Plan*Because I'll be teaching in about a week at SCAD, I've been thinking a lot about what to tell the students. And I wrote it out so that I could solidify it in my head. This stuff is for younger artists mostly, so feel free to skip.5 Year Plan3 years ago in Personal More Like This
When I spend time with another comic artist, sometimes I'll ask, "What's your 5 year plan?" In other words, what steps is he taking in order to gain control over his career in order to move up the ladder? Usually I don't get much of an answer.
The reason I think many comic artists aren't forward-thinking has to do with the way our industry is set up. Whether by conscious design or through the neglect of its participants, younger freelancers get into a habit of complacency while hoping for a chance to suckle from the teet of a major publisher. Waiting around for a career doesn't promote the idea of freelancers taking active control of their OWN careers.
If I had to sum up the 5 Year Plan
My Top Ten Favorite Horror/ComediesJust in case you felt a popular favorite hadn't met the previous list!My Top Ten Favorite Horror/Comedies2 years ago in Personal More Like This
This was a bit of a traumatizing movie for me in my youth because of how drastic the tonal shifts can be (Santa Claus story anyone?) and the uncensored brutality that occurs in an ostensibly child-friendly movie about what at first appeared to be a kid getting a cute pet from a mysterious shop (the blender and microwave scenes been particularly unpleasant even if evil little monsters were involved). But to the day Gremlins the original has remained two things for me: scary and funny. The puppetry and effects is nothing short of amazing. The gags all work brilliantly and there's a bizarre atmosphere to a creature who can have childlike curiosity at one moment, and murderous intent the next. Great memorable music, a surreal but bizarrely fitting Christmas time setting, and a unique and as yet never entirely duplicated concept.

Megaforce is starting to suck.Well, I've been very disappointed by recent episodes of Power rangers Megaforce. IMO, it started out good, but now it's just....blah. The only reason I'm still watching it is for Jake, Noah, and Gia, cause they're the only interesting characters I like. Troy's acting isn't getting any better, but I'll be fair he's not as bad as Mack from Operation Overdrive, or Dax from Masked Rider. The writing hasn't really improved much, and Robo knight is just coming off as asshole to the rangers, even more than Eric from Time Force.Megaforce is starting to suck.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Super Megaforce might not turn out any better because of the way saban is handling it right now, but I'm not going to be all "R.I.P GOKAIGER SABAN KILLED YOU" I'm probably just going be very disappointed is all.

Yeah, this is pretty muc reitterating what I had though a while ago. I was really interested in seeing Centurian, and this looked like a rehash with a better-looking but less talented male lead. Tatum was worse than bland in GI Joe That movie was abysmal, and they had the opportunity to do smething really cool and interesting with that franchise...
Okay enough out of me. Watch the review, it's funny
The Most Frustrating Doctor Who Episode EverThe TARDIS was orbiting a human-colonized world in the far future, and the door was open with the Doctor peeking out. He noticed something strange in the distance and got his binoculars, while his companion was left trying to squint to see what it was. It was nothing less and nothing more than a van. A regular 20th century Earth automobile. Flying in space.The Most Frustrating Doctor Who Episode Ever1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The Doctor sort of docked the TARDIS to the space van so that it was right by the door. He sonicked* the air-tight door open, and inside the van were five cats, two adults and a litter of three kittens. But these were no ordinary cats. They spoke perfect UK English, and claimed to be humans, just like the Doctor and his companion. The Doctor obviously corrected them, and when they found out he was a Time Lord, the black male cat (who said his name was Michael something or other) told him he had watched the show back on Earth in the 60s and told the Doctor he was brilliant.

Self hypnosisI mean wow!Self hypnosis4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just tried it for the first time. At first I felt really ridiculous, but then I just stopped thinking, like my brain had fallen asleep, can't remember anything about the ten minutes I stayed it the deep hypnosis. Only when the tape said the number three of the waking up program I realised time had passed. So twenty minutes program, and I feel like I've slept for two hours, without the grogginess of naps.
Now to cook some rice for lunch and some more meditating in the evening. o/
