Architect Rem Koolhaas has completed a “vertical city” complex in Rotterdam, bringing a new style of multi–purpose skyscrapers to the city skyline. Bennett Stein wrote about the new buildings for KCRW’s Design & Architecture blog, calling the creator “the Godzilla of architecture.”

It’s rare that a “new” iconic monster is born and becomes forever identifiable,—— no matter the variations, by generation after generation. So it was when George Romero created the ultimate “zombie” in his Night of the Living Dead in 1968. Zombie Apocalypse fans today may have never heard of George or seen the original “Night,” but the zombies they so love in fare like The Walking Dead owe their existence to Romero’s original vision.

Poking FunPokéFunPoking Fun in Personal More Like This
People seem to love to jump to conclusions. If there's one thing I want people who visit my page or read my comics to understand, it's this: If I poke fun at something, that does not automatically mean that I HATE it.
I'm restating that now because it came up again recently in the "Nintentroll" comic. People seemed to think that because the comic is making fun of certain pokemon that means I am decrying the whole series or somehow personally insulting those who actually do enjoy the specific examples I used. Let me reassure you, I am not.
I guess I just want people to lighten up and not always be in such a defensive mode all the time. Everyone has different likes and dislikes and if I don't like something or happen to poke fun at something you do, that does not mean I am personally attacking you and there's no reason to be so knee-jerk defensive about it. This goes for everything I do beyond the "Nintentroll" comic as well. If I poke fun at a movie, or video game, or spe
One Myth I Wish I Could Dispel"Feminism means you can't like sexy things"One Myth I Wish I Could Dispel in Personal More Like This
After doing a series of comics standing up for women's rights, there's a lot of really negative rumors going on around me right now. Most of which point to the hypocrisy that I use to draw fetish artwork and that recently I made pin-ups that were "sexy" in nature. Because, of course, if you're an artist who stands up for women's rights from that moment on you're not allowed to EVER draw women in a way that might be construed as potentially "sexy," lest you be labeled a hypocrite.
As I've mentioned before in previous journals, I really can't stand this mentality the internet has of polarizing extremes. You've always gotta be in one extreme or you're in the other. There's never the possibility that you could be in the middle like, you know, a normal person would be.
I understand why that is: it's easier to point out fallacies and bitch and whine about people when they fit into nice neat black and white spec
Being Critical =/= HateLooks like I need to remind people about this again, as yesterday I got several comments in a row from people who assumed that me being critical about something automatically translated into me outright hating it. I don't know how to stress this enough but that's not the case... You can be critical of stuff you like and not hate it. I don't know why our culture tries so hard to force everything into such black and white terms but come on guys, really... being critical and smart about what you love doesn't mean you hate it.Being Critical =/= Hate in Personal More Like This
Take the Dragon's Crown comic, for example, in which I was critical of the Sorceress's design. From that someone hypothesized that I must HATE the game, and that's farthest from the truth. I know full well that Vanillaware is an amazing studio and they do fantastic work. One of my favorite games of theirs is Muramasa the Demon Blade. Dragon's Crown has scored really highly and it's most definitely worth your money to buy/download it if you can. BUT... I can still be
Socially AwkwardI like the internet, but I acknowledge that it's not perfect. The ability for everyone to be the invisible man allows for a lot of injustice, bullying, harassment, and stalking to take place. This is slowly starting to change, however, thanks to every website gradually forcing people to link to their facebook (or other social media equivalent) accounts. No one wants to lose their personal social outlets as a result of the stuff they were doing elsewhere on the web, if you know what I mean. But... with all good things there are some bad things.Socially Awkward in Personal More Like This
I don't know if it's just me, but I'm getting really creeped out how by how much everything is getting connected these days. Nearly every website asks me to post about stuff on facebook or twitter or reddit or whatever.

'Why Are We Even Talking About This?'I get that phrase a lot, that and "over react much?" whenever I bring up ANY issue, be it from a video game, politics, or whatever. There seems to be a lot of people who just don't wanna talk about anything at all, and would much rather these discussions just not exist so they can get on with their lives.'Why Are We Even Talking About This?' in Personal More Like This
You'll be unsurprised to learn that I don't agree with that wisdom. In my books, if you don't do anything, nothing is going to happen. If there's an injustice in the world somewhere and you stay silent, that injustice isn't going to fix itself. It will just keep happening. That, my friends, is complacency.
Then of course there are those people who don't believe that the world will ever change, therefor there's no reason to try, and actively try to stop anyone who dares to stand up for something. I can't begin to describe how annoying that mindset is to me. It's almost sadistic in it's very nature, by actively trying to stop people from making the world a better place by being dismissi
What's Wrong With Praise?So this is another one of those artistic taboos we're never suppose to talk about, apparently. The idea of giving back positive feedback to an artist. It's seen as "coddling" as "babying" as "inflating the ego" and has such intense negative associations. It seems to be generally accepted that the only way to critique someone's work is to point out ONLY the negative parts. Any attempt to point out anything positive or something you liked about the work is seen as being unhelpful towards the artist's growth.What's Wrong With Praise? in Personal More Like This
And frankly I think that's a bunch of hogwash.
Speaking from my own experience, I rarely ever get anything positive said about my work in a constructive way. I might get a lot of "good jobs" or people talking happily about my comics because they made them laugh, but I rarely if ever get any comments that go into detail explaining WHY I did something right. On the flip side, the amount of negative criticism and nitpicking is almost hilariously rampant, not just on my artwork but on th
Perception on the InternetYour average user on the internet can generally say whatever they want about an issue. It's alright to voice an opinion because no one is really going to track you down and attack you for having one (unless you're doing it in a really really public place like a forum or chat room). However, as I've become somewhat popular online, I've noticed a perception from people that I must maintain a neutral and unbiased outlook at all times on every issue.Perception on the Internet in Personal More Like This
Regardless of what that issue is I'm not generally free to express my opinion without first listing a whole bunch of qualifiers for "why" I feel this way, or by making it very clear that it's OK for you to disagree. You are not allowed to "sum up" an experience, and it's greatly discouraged for you to generalize. I've notice that this mentality has greatly affected my writing style as it forces me to tip toe very carefully around every issue I address.

The reason these issues with women in comics and gaming and nerd culture in general is because of inclusivity and broadening demographics. Over a decade ago, nerd culture was still very much male dominated and exclusive. But over the years women have been getting into comics and gaming and everything else geek related much more so. I mean... don't get me wrong, they were ALWAYS there to being with... but for whatever reason it just started to become more socially acceptable to admit that you were a woman and a geek/gamer.
But the problem is that most of nerd culture and gaming are doing things same-old-same-old like they've always been doing things. They produce content exclusively for male audiences and don't understand why women are takin
Why Cynical Improvement Is Bad For YouSince we're on the subject of taboos, I feel it necessary to talk about this one. This one pisses me off and it's very much a cornerstone to a bigger issue with our artistic community: The idea and assumption that as an artist you MUST improve at all times. 24/7. No exceptions. Every work you produce must be 10x better than your last. You must constantly strive for perfection. To ignore this "truth" is to commit the terrible sin of rejecting the very concept of improvement, and you will never break out of your "comfort zone."Why Cynical Improvement Is Bad For You in Personal More Like This
I'm here to tell you that this is hogwash.
You should strive to improve. Never say that I don't encourage improvement. It's why you go to school, why you go to college, and why after college you continue to work on your art. You always want to be better. The problem is that far too many people have a strictly binary concept of what "better" is and on how to "improve."
First off, there is no pinnacle of perfection. There is no

The Pinkie ProblemSo, I've been saying that Season 4 has had one consistant problem, and that problem has been Pinkie's characterization. A lot of people seem to believe that Pinkie has been fine, the same as she's always been, or harmless. That's a perfectly valid opinion (that I don't share) and there is a way of looking at things where you take every character's perfomance as "in character:" Spike from Spike at Your Service; Twilight in Feeling Pinkie Keen; Rainbow Dash in May the Best Pet Win!, everything.The Pinkie Problem in Personal More Like This
I could do that—actually no I couldn't, since I'm a critic, but hypothetically if I could, I would have to assume that Pinkie lacks any sense of empathy (The Super Speedy Cider Squeezy 6000; Filli Vanilli); is a complete idiot (Over a Barrel); and has the mind of a child (most of her season four appearances). Regardless of whether or not that's a valid viewpoint, that's not a good character. I define a good character as someone you can relate to, som

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....

2. Do you have the space?
I started working off of my bed, then out of the spare bedroom. Small projects don't take up space, but larger ones certainly do. Do you have the space needed for furs, tools, cutting, sewing, and other things of the sort?
3. Do you have the dedication?
Fursuit making can not only be rewarding, but it can also be

Suiting Prep: Your fursuit and you!Was talking with another maker and we started chatting about suiting experiences and some of the not so nice things that follow. When you hit a con you usually see all the fluff first before some of the stink hits you. We discussed seeing suits that looked real mangy, smelled horrid, or just needed a good burning due to miscare. While you take care of yourself, your suit needs care too!!Suiting Prep: Your fursuit and you! in Personal More Like This
Here's how to keep you smelling really awesome at a con out of suit:
1. SHOWER. No one wants to smell your funk, no matter how 'natural' you're going for. Soap, water, scrub, repeat if need be.
2. Deodorant. Kill the BO where it really starts. It's a serious put off when you can smell the suiter before seeing them but its even worse if the person is out of suit.
3. Toothbrush/toothpaste: Fresh breath is also important. Keep them pearly whites white
4. Pack several sets of CLEAN clothes in a SEPARATE container than your fursuit stuff!! Don't wear the same stuff over and over again, that's just... nas
Happy ending for a straySo the stray cattle dog named Tasha (see previous 2 journals) went home today just before noon.Happy ending for a stray in Personal More Like This
As the owner approached her she was as skittish as ever, but then she began to stare, and came up to the door of the kennel. He opened the kennel and sat down and the dog crawled over and put her head in his lap.
By the time they left she was calmly standing up on him seeking attention, her tail went from tucked to relaxed, and she jumped right into the car as if she had done so only yesterday.
After 2 years of being missing, likely running feral, she remembered him.
A phone call hours later brought more good news.
His wife cried upon seeing the dog, so grateful to have her back.
Their toy poodle, whom Tasha grew up with, at first did not seem to know her but then it's tail began to wag and the little dog got all happy... the poodle remembered her!
Their new dog, a cattle dog mix they rescued long after Tasha went missing, seems to be doing well, not exactly friends but not enemies, which in
