NaNoEdMo: A Month for EditingIt's finally the halfway point in the NaNoWriMo challenge! For some, they've already graced the 50,000 word limit, others are close enough to reach, some are still hanging around the daily word count limit, and for others... you're struggling to catch up! But, no matter where in your challenge you are, there's one thing that everyone shares: a novel. More correctly, an unedited novel.NaNoEdMo: A Month for Editing2 years ago in Literature Features More Like This
While yes, NaNo is meant to prove that you can, indeed, get a novel written (and by novel, I mean first draft), many of us writers would love to see a more polished piece. Whether it's for your personal use, showing to family and friends, using your self-publishing option for it, or seeking traditional publishing down the road, editing is important to having a nice, solid piece of work. You may be proud now that you've got 50,000 words written (or close to it), but you'll be even prouder to have a grammatically correct, plot-hole filled in, novel.
But, for many, the editing process seems to be a bi

After yet another women in gaming being driven out of their home from DOXXING and rape/death threats, and the fact neo-nazi's have joined the cause... I want absolutely NOTHING to do with this group. I don't care if it'll lose me watchers or views or whatever, or if I don't completely "understand their cause!" I don't care now. There is no turning back for me.

The Downside to Internet Fame
This has been a topic on my mind a lot lately, especially over the recent Phil Fish controversy. In a lot of ways I find myself in the same shoes as Phil. My “reputation” online is not a very good one, and it often precedes me. No matter what website I go to, if I make an account and comment anywhere on the internet... those that dislike me will find me and make their presence known.
Part of the problem with being “famous” on the internet is that if you want to have a semblance of a normal life again, you essentially have to give up EVERYTHING that everyone else online takes for granted. I essentially have to give up twitter, Facebook, tumblr, DA, Pinterest, SA, YouTube, and pretty much any other website where I’m allowed to have a presence.
If I comment on someone else’s art, I risk bringi
'Nice f**king model!'I heard that a sequel to Beetlejuice had been greenlit a little while back, and everyone involved with the original seem to be on board. Michael Keaton has openly said that he's involved and, last I heard, Tim Burton had been talking with him directly, so he's most likely going to be calling the shots again: http://metro.co.uk/2013/11/06/michael-keaton-says-yes-to-beetlejuice-2-4176210/'Nice f**king model!'2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Beetlejuice, to me, is the definitive Burton film. I don't think he's ever made anything better so I'm rather excited at the prospect.... as long as it's not the "Beetlejuice goes Hawaiian” B.S. that bubbled up from the s-bend a few years back.
The movie is, what, 25 years old, now? So I’m (depressingly) aware that a good slice of you won’t have seen it and, at one point, will no doubt be asking “Is that Spock’s mum?”.
You must watch it.

Family Guy + Rape Culture, Digital Animal AbuseIn my last journal I apparently touched a few people off by saying that I didn’t like rape jokes in Family Guy, and that I was upset that a digital mutant lizard was killed in the trailer for Mad Max. There were a number of people who didn’t find those things to be offensive and couldn’t seem to understand why I personally would get so upset. “Family Guy has ALWAYS had rape jokes” or “It’s not even a real animal” being the typical response. So let’s try to address this stuff...Family Guy + Rape Culture, Digital Animal Abuse1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Family Guy and Rape Culture
Before we begin we need to set some definitions so that we’re all on the same page.
Rape culture is a phrase used to describe a culture in which rape is pervasive and normalized due to societal attitudes about gender, sex, and sexuality. Examples of behaviors commonly associated with rape culture include victim blaming, sexual objectification, trivializing rape, denial of widespread rape, or
Yeah, this'll end well.....Let me try to wrap my head around this: certain parties in the U.S government don't like the idea of assisting the poor, of the county they serve, with health care expense, because of the cost.Yeah, this'll end well.....2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Their "solution" to this is to shut down the government (something which isn't possible in any other nation on the planet), which will cost more, decrease public spending, lower the demand for imports, damage global economy and generally tarnish the U.S's international reputation even further?
The rich making others suffer in an effort to get their own way.
I believe that's called "tyranny".

Yes, comments are disabled on her YouTube video. But honestly, why does everyone see this as a "problem?" I know it's common wisdom to assume that if you hide comments you're "scared" of receiving criticism or some other bullshit, but think beyond that please.
1) Comments enabled would just allow hate speech and actual sexism to persist because the internet has already determined that everyone hates Anita. No matter how thoughtful or constructive your criticisms might be, YouTube's 500 character limit isn't the best place to give it, plus it would be drowned out by the trolls and haters spewing negativity.
2) Her videos are also meant more as a teaching tool, not a vlog series, and as such are potentially going to be used in classrooms. Probably a good idea to keep nasty comments of homophobia, racism, sexism, etc off of the main source of the video. I think that's backed up beautifully by having her tell parents to preview the
USA ShutdownUm... my government kinda stopped working today. I'm gonna summarize these events rather generally, so if you don't like what I say here, tough luck go fight about it in the comment section. I'm writing this not because I want to talk about politics, but because I'm sorta obligated to since it's a BIG DEAL here and people are confused and wondering what's going on.USA Shutdown2 years ago in Personal More Like This
So we have a budget that needs to get passed every year to keep things running. The president gives the budget to Congress and Congress approves of it. Except that Congress is so inefficient at getting things done, they often wait too long to pass the budget by the deadline. So generally what happens is they pass an extension to take care of it later, which shouldn't be a big deal. But this year Republicans added an addendum to the extension saying they wanted to bump Obamacare till next year, and squabbling ensued.
Now Obamacare has already passed into Law. It's even been upheld by the Supreme Court. There is nothing Republ

I watched the first episode and I won’t spoil anything for you here. Suffice to say it was a little more lackluster than I anticipated it would be for a season starting episode. I understand they’re setting up a LOT of stuff (with the 3 year time jump), but overall I felt kinda blah about this episode. I hope it gets better. I think the next episode is going to examine what happened to Korra during those 3 years and that sounds like it’s gonna be awesome. So here’s hoping!
DC Apologizes for Offensive T-Shirts
This little news story broke out over the week. DC unveiled 2 new official t-shirts. The first depicted Superman kissing Wonder Woman with the title “SCORE!” over his head. The other was a Batman shirt that read “Training to be Batman’s Wife.” I have less issue with the batman shirt than I do the Wonder Woman shirt, because it’s pretty indicative of wh
Pacific RimPlotPacific Rim2 years ago in Personal More Like This
An alien rift opens up in the pacific ocean and giant monsters start pouring out. After failing to stop them with our usual tanks and planes, the world unites to make giant mech robots punch the monsters to death. Because the robots are so big and complex, controlling them alone is too intense for a single human brain to comprehend. So mech robots are piloted by two crew members who mind meld with each other to share the power load. The better in-synch the pilots are with each other, the better the robots perform. The movie follows the events as monster outbreaks increase and a last ditch effort to close the portal is put into motion.
There is a LOT to get through in the movie in terms of world building. Sometimes so much so that you don't get a chance to absorb it all in. Likewise, since there's so much going on the characters don't get very developed either. Outside the 3 main characters, the rest of the characters are simplified ste

I’m sorry that the last journal seemed to upset so many people. It was meant as a cleansing of views and people around me that might introduce toxicity in my life. But I can totally understand how some people took it very personally, or felt that I worded it poorly. You are absolutely right, and for that transgression I am sorry.
With that in mind, I felt it might be a good idea to just give a refresher course on important personal rules, opinions, or views I have so that we’re ALL on the same playing field on where/what/who I stand for. So this is going to be a very BLUNT and DRY list of stuff about me and my opinions. I hope that it helps clear any confusions and I will be happy to elaborate on anything if you ask me in the comments section.

Someone linked me this video after seeing my Fashion Savvy Samus comic, and it quickly became apparent that a LOT of people defending Samus’s god-awful rocket boots were using THIS as their basis for argument. So, since this is the internet, I’m gonna respond to this video interjecting whenever I hear something I agree or disagree with.
1. I agree that we should separate Other M Samus from the rest of cannon based on the fact that it was conceived over a retcon of the character.
2. I agree that a lot of the hatred for Other M Samus came from her BADLY localized English translation and voice acting. I’ve stated many times that if the game had been left in Japanese with English subtitles, I sincerely doubt as many people would’ve had a problem with her “monologuing” than they do with the English version.

CONTEST POST APOCALYPSE EXTENSIONQuite a few of you have successfully completed your submissions for the contest and already uploaded your art, but there are also a few that contacted me regarding the time limit on the contest, and asked for me to extend it, as they would have to rush their final piece. So we decided to give you all a bit more time on this, and extend the contest deadline until 15/08/13.

This so-called MOOD SYSTEMMany people, especially emoticonists, have been wondering about this mood system. As far as I know, spyed came up with the idea, and he told me that it's his favorite project that was released with v5. spyed messaged me around 2am a few nights ago and asked me to take a look at the Mood System. He explained to me what it was and what his vision of it was. I went through the list, adding in emotes and categories/sub-categories. A half-day later, the moods system was complete with 190 total moods and emoticons. Many of these emoticons were not in emoticon legend. I could have picked out more that were in there, but I ultimately decided that it would be a good thing to bring in some new life. Much love goes to Pachunka, dionyziz and the other IT geeks for coding this up in collaboration with the Creative Team. If you have any suggestions for the moods system, feel free to post them here and I'll see what I can do.This so-called MOOD SYSTEM9 years ago in Personal More Like This

For many of us, the first “art gallery” to command our attention (and constant, even daily, monitoring) in our
lives existed within the pages of the local newspaper. It was called “the movie section” and its ever-changing movie
advertisements were like little frames that rarely contained less than pure magic for young imaginations.
The Film Poster has existed since the earliest days of silent movies and the pulse-elevating excitement of the
first sight of an upcoming adventure, action, or sweeping love story that we might have only “heard good things about”
still packs a psychic punch throughout movie lovers today.
