Factory error stickers foundTime to shove the old journal off and share with you guys something I found today as a surpriseFactory error stickers found3 months ago in Personal More Like This
That's right, I'm talking about new Lion King stickers. They were included in the 54 page coloring book I picked up at my local grocery store. They're cute and some I don't think I've seen before (including Pumbaa at the top left corner). But there are a couple stickers with some errors. Many are colored wrong, while some are missing details.
Why be called an artist? (warning: Rant ahead)Why be called an artist when you see so many children join deviantART and post screenshot edits calling them "art" when they're comparable to colorforms? Why the hell should we have to work hard trying to get better at drawing day after day when these children get so much praise for being fucking cheap about their art?Why be called an artist? (warning: Rant ahead)3 months ago in Personal More Like This
It fucking irritates me to no end seeing these ankle biters being called artists when all they do is take screenshots from well known Disney or Dreamworks movies and paste them together. And yet deviantART doesn't do anything about this bandwidth cancer. Oh sure deviantART will purge screenshots of deviant member comments, but they won't even bother touching these when each one is just a law suit piling up by the animation companies.
Two things deviantART will take care of in a heart beat, bug reports and underaged brats. But screenshots doesn't even go on that list.
It shouldn't bother me, but these damned babymippers irritate the piss out of me.

Saying, "I did not make this"...Does not make it OK to post something, on YouTube, on dA, or anywhere.Saying, "I did not make this"1 year ago in Personal More Like This
For one thing, deviantArt and YouTube's USER AGREEMENT, which you have to agree to to use the site, states that what you upload must be your own content. So, you saying in the comments "by the way I didn't make this" doesn't mean anything -- by agreeing to upload only things you have created, and then by posting someone else's art or movie, you're already saying to YouTube, "Yes, I made this, it's OK for me to post."

...Which explains it pretty well.
The only part I'm not sure of is the "uploading it to be viewed on the internet DOES NOT make it free game" part -- I was told by a lawyer that once I post my art on the internet, and I am not trying to profit from it obviously, because viewing my gallery online doesn't make me a dime, it is absolutely legal for people to re

oh man i just had a memory joggerso i was trying to get the shower to not be cold but not be scalding hotoh man i just had a memory jogger1 year ago in Personal More Like This
which brought back memories to staying in koln for a month with a german family
and their 2 by 2 foot shower that you like closed around you with glass sheilds
there were 2 settings
lava seeping out the faucet
and naked snow flurry
if youve ever stood naked mid feb. while a violent blizzard is occuring
then you know what i went through
the hitch is you cant set it to just one
it fluxuated inbetween dragon fire and avalanche
every minute or so
so i got my showers down to about 45 seconds
and i shaved my legs perched on their tiny sink counter with my legs in the sink
i felt like i was in alice and wonderland or some shit
the sight was also quite ridiculous
id love to know what their actual opinion of me was
like all the smack talk their probably was about me
all the weird american things i did
like stay up till 1am playing pokemon
im pretty sure that cant be considered american but im calling it that anyways

Stuff I'd post on tumblr if bronies weren't scaryIt goes without saying Spike's got a crush on Rarity.Stuff I'd post on tumblr if bronies weren't scary1 month ago in Personal More Like This
It's also obvious Rarity dotes on him.While you could argue it's returned affection, I personally believe she finds him cute, the way any of us would if a friend's younger 'sibling' or associate crushed on us. Plus (and I'm trying to look at this honestly, NOT from a shipper's eyes) if you compare that to the way she spoke and looked at Fancy Pants... humoring a young (teen, I think) versus being charmed herself... I know MLP has no intentional shipping, but in my eyes, there's a stark difference.
I also (this is all my headcanon, mind you) believe that Spike and Twilight are soul mates. I never saw them as siblings or mother/son, and after season 3 especially--which focused FAR more on their bond over Spike's Rarity crush-- there's a very deep connection that echoes far stronger than falling for the prettiest mare. They're there for each other, believe in one another and stick by their side for support despite the dan

As for life, been drawing TF art and being a distracted lazy person because my family and i finally got a rental house. (Privacy yes!) And unpacking and setting things where i want it just ugghhhh!

It's not going to get better. It's not.
How ba-a-a-a-d can it be?
Let's just say it failed dramatically.
How ba-a-a-a-d can it be?
There's nothing in it done naturally.
How ba-a-a-a-d can it be?
How do you take care of this catastrophe?
How ba-a-a-a-d can it be?
How bad could it possibly be?
Well there's a principle of nature
That almost every creature knows
Called survival of the fittest
And Universal, this is NOT how it goes!
Now if you want to know my gripe
Well--First, the Lorax doesn't fight
But he whines and complains
But does no such terrible things
Such as sailing a poor boy down the Nile
And you would have to understand
All the fight that's in his hands
Goes unnoticed by the Once-Ler
Who is greedy and a touch blurred
In his reality of the reason he's on trial
Now I'm not going to rant on the reasons
The Lorax failed in causing a ruckus or applause
But when I sat down in that theater
And the message was thrown out,

Listen to this.

Out of hate.
Out of the need to be human.
All I can say is that for this to work?
You will need to suffer.

Breathing. It gives you life. In repetition, your physical self finds comfort. In, and out; air slides along the alveoli. Mingling, becoming fuel. Part of us.
The heart pumps. Blood gushing back and forth, giving us awareness, movement, sensations.
The nervous system alights our senses, the electricity stimulates us, gives us our unique traits, everything that gives the soul...a breath.
Hold me. For can not take this constant. This perpetual motion. This twisting, writhing motion of the body. Make it stop. Give me something new.
Something different. Let my heart race, skip, stop. Start. Let my breath catch, hold, cease. Continue. Let my brain recollect, forget, shut down.
The night falls around me, and my body goes through the motions. I helplessly obey it. &

So last night I was minding my own business, mostly doing homework and RPing, when my room-mate comes in and says we're evacuating since the entire side of our dorm was flooding. I look out in the hallway and water was indeed slowly making its way down the hallway. Me and my roommate unplugged all our stuff and went outside, after putting on some warm clothes since it was pretty cold outside.
At this point we're all out in the parking lot across the street, trying to figure out what happened. Did a pipe burst? Was it because of construction or just normal wear and tear? Well, turns out it wasn't any of those things. Apparently someone's toilet on the third floor was broken and when another Airmen tried to fix it he ended up breaking it so bad that things started spraying and flooding their bathroom. :iconfacepalmplz: If you have any grasp on what gravity is you can figure out the rest.
So now I'm in a room on the opposite end of where my ol
Panic Attacks...Before I state anything else, I want to just acknowledge that each person's experience is unique to themselves.Panic Attacks2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I feel like jumping out of my skin, and running away somewhere. My heart is racing, and I feel as if I am going to faint.
I sit propped up against the cold wall; it feels good somehow. Shaking. Crying. Wondering why. The flickering of my dying laptop eclipses my shadow against the wall, making me feel split...
More tears. I know the solution to this attack is mere feet away.
Did I take a chance?
More words. More feelings.
She talks, nonchalantly. I dare not tell her. It would be more a reason to feel this way.
I breathe, the light panics instead.
The deed has been done.
I feel the calm wash over me.
The hurt has been replaced.

For all you draw-ers, I would personally suggest ONE(1) character to do these, or repeat using just one character. You'll get better at drawing the character, get better at doing repetitive character drawing, and have a zillion outfits ready if you want to manga them! or do a couple/male
