Proving your Geek CreedNerds all share a unified experience of being socially ostracized from the rest of other so-called "normal" societal groups. The reasons may vary (not being good at sports, liking a certain sci-fi/fantasy TV show, etc), but the fact that we all were picked upon and marginalized during our most formable years is a major part of the nerd/geek identity. But in recent years nerd culture stopped being it's own niche thing, and has started to seep into mainstream culture. Making nerd culture more accessible has naturally brought with it a new group of people and fans into our sphere... and not everyone is happy about this development.Proving your Geek Creed in Personal More Like This

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

Why Can't Warner Bros Get Their Act Together?Over the weekend at SDCC, Warner Bros announced that the new Man of Steel sequel will also feature Batman. The team-up movie will be followed by a Flash movie and then a Justice League Avenger's style team-up movie. This has a lot of people scratching their heads and wondering what exactly is wrong with DC and Warner Bros respectively. Why Flash and not Wonder Woman? Why add Batman when reports have been told that Christian Bale doesn't want to return and we'll likely get a completely new Batman? Why do a team-up so soon after the first Man of Steel movie instead of fleshing out Superman's modernized world better?Why Can't Warner Bros Get Their Act Together? in Personal More Like This
Well... to put it bluntly I don't think Warner Bros really gives a shit about comic book themed movies and they're only going through these motions because they feel like they HAVE to rather than because they WANT to. Just take a look at their track record.

First off, Warner Bros has a problem of relying too heavily on the people th
Mature themes in American AnimationWhen I first discovered Anime, my mind was blown. Here were Japanese animations being made which told adult stories with sex, violence, and all sorts of things I'd never seen before done in American films. As a teenager the constant pandering to children and the reluctance to accept more mature themes and ideas in American animated films pissed me off. Why can't american cartoons be taken more seriously and have stuff for adults too outside of South Park and The Simpsons?Mature themes in American Animation in Personal More Like This
In 1998 Stephen Spielberg tried to change that. After having a successful run of kids cartoons (Tiny Toons, Animaniacs, Pink and the Brain, etc), he took it a step further by giving us a PRIME TIME cartoon series aimed at adults. It was called "Invasion America." It was a sci-fi epic, featured a slew of big name actors including Leonard Nimoy, and featured more adult oriented themes such as sex, violence, and swearing!
It sucked and was a resounding failure.

It's been announced that Soul Caliber 2 will be gracing the 360 and PS3 later this year. Gotta say, Nintendo sure can't get a break. Everyone knows that the only reason to play Soul Caliber 2 was to play as Link on the gamecube kicking everyone's ass. There's been no announcement of a Wii-U version, and there probably wont' be. It's times like this I have to wonder if there really is a conspiracy against Nintendo from 3rd party developers with how often they abandon or don't even consider their console at all.
Man of Steel 2 and Justice League
Warner Bros's pattern of using the same people they think have the "golden touch" to a franchise is showing again as they've signed on Zack Snyder again for Man of Steel 2. The movie will also feature Batman and will serve as a tie-in to the inevitable Justice League movie.

I was thinking of trying a new link system for SYAC. Basically when you click on the "read the next comic now" link, you would be taken to a short 5 second advertisement before moving on to the actual comic. If you have an adblocker, you probably wouldn't even notice anything.
My question is... do you think this is a good idea? Many artists on YouTube get paid for adverts playing before their videos, and many filmmakers (like the AVGN) have advertisements play before their own content on their own websites. Why shouldn't this same sort of system work for other artists? Would you be willing to sit through a 5 second advertisement before being able to view the new comics? Is this a bad idea?

Age of Ultron and Feminism -SPOILERS-Reviews of Age of Ultron have been going up and one consistent theme across many of them is the “problematic” nature of Black Widow’s character arc. The general consensus seems to be that Black Widow, the bad ass female hero on a team of men, was devalued by forcing her into a relationship and making her goals “let’s be a couple” and it’s all Joss Whedon’s fault.Age of Ultron and Feminism -SPOILERS- in Personal More Like This
As a feminist myself, I find a lot of this over simplification and anger at the movie to be kinda misguided. I haven’t been seeing my viewpoints talked about much at all, which is where this journal comes into play. So here’s why, in my opinion, the subplot for Black Widow isn’t as bad as you may think.
1. First off I want to address the growing complaints that Black Widow is somehow “weaker” for wanting to have a normal life. I think that’s a really problematic mindset to have in regards to feminism. You see, in our American society there are
Objectification of MenAfter reading through the comments on my last journal about Tropes Vs Women in Gaming Part 2 I noticed a lot of people are angry we're even talking about sexism because (as they put it) "men are ALSO sexualized and objectified in gaming so women shouldn't complain that they are too."Objectification of Men in Personal More Like This
And while that's a nice thought that sounds logical at first... any causal observer to gaming and most media today will be able to recognize that the two sides are not equal enough to make that sort of comparison. Here's the difference as I see it: Men are objectified and sexualized, yes, but it's not done for women. It's done for men. The objectification of men in gaming and other media is a self image fantasy FOR men. In other words, both the objectification of men and women are done for the benefit of men.
Not only that but again a casual observer will note that the standards of "beauty" are not at all equal on both sides. Female heros are all designed to be attractive, sexy, thin, sensual, pure,

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

Orcs of MaineEveryone's used to politicians badmouthing each other and highlighting flaws in their opponents to try and belittle them in front of the eyes of the public.Orcs of Maine in Personal More Like This
In my little corner of the world, things like fraud and corruption regularly bubble to the surface, usually by way of the media. The police investigate and the offending politician is, more often than not, destroyed. Possibly literally, as they're not usually heard from again, but more likely because the parties distance themselves from the offending moron, who was stupid enough to misbehave while the public gaze was upon them.
The parties use incidents like that to discredit their rivals and question their abilities to govern.
Occasionally an irrelevant element of a politician's personal life will crop up as the focus of a jibe, but it's never seen as anything more than that. Using, say, a harmless hobby to try and smear someone in Parliament would be seen as monumentally petty.

I get a bit of stick these days for my supposed, relentless negativity, but it’s only there because of the relentless mediocrity that I keep getting told I should be excited about.

On Fury RoadThe first Mad Max film, from 1979, is the worst of the lot. “Original” and “Classic” do not equate to “Good”.

In the sequels, Max exists purely as our eyes upon this world, its insane inhabitants and weird, irradiated charm. Max isn’t the main character, the wasteland is. Max is as much a vehicle as the rusty death machines that tear up the sand.

Little Victory - DigitalStarting today, and leading up to issue #4 of the Chimera arc, previous installments of Little Victory are being made available for purchase in a digital format, alongside the hardcopies (both past and future. I'm not going digital-only).Little Victory - Digital in Personal More Like This
I'd originally intended to do this only at the end of the series' hardcopy run, but due to soaring postage costs (I think Indyplanet ship their comics internationally one at a time....on a unicorn) and the increased acceptance of ebooks, it'd be daft to wait.
Bonus material, such as sketchbook pages and the back cover pin-ups, will remain exclusive to the hardcopy version.
Little Victory: Children of Arras is the first up. Little Victory: Chimera #1 will be added next week.

A brief introduction to the Typography galleries that can be found on deviantART.
(All gallery names are linked, so you can click and browse)
I know, the galleries can be pretty confusing! You can submit Typography to both digital and traditional galleries. Of course, this depends on how you created the work. If you scan a piece, it does not automatically make it digital. And if you draw a part of it, but add elements on a computer to it, it is no longer traditional (Technically it would be Mixed Media, but everything with a typographic content is Typography. Mixed Media however, if it implied use of a graphic program to add to the work, is ALWAYS Digital Art.)

A little insight into the history of not only Typography, but also of written language. This article will be far from covering it all, but focuses on highlighting some of the major events and periods in the history of Typography.
From the Greek roots τύπος typos = "impression" and -γραφία -graphia = "writing".
~ 30th Century BC – 200 AD
Or "Script of Nails / Cuneiform Script" is probably the oldest form of written text. This calligraphic form of writing was carved into clay tablets.

This week of projecteducate is dedicated to Typography in all its shapes and forms!
"Typography is the art and technique of arranging type in order to make language visible." *
Typography surrounds us on a daily basis and usually we don't even notice it. Its purpose is to convey a message and not distract from it. This is what design is for: it puts information and language into something visually consumable.
This history of Typography starts long before Gutenberg or the Chinese invented movable type. Ever since language was born, man had to find other ways than mouth-to-mouth to transmit a message. What may have started with cave paintings developed into writing and thus, Typography was born.
There are many many faces to Typography: Calligraphy,

- Earned my First Degree Black Belt in tae kwon do
- Got my first professional job, before the dreaded "six months" was up
- Received my first major awards for cosplay
- Bought my own car (it's a TARDIS blue Prius ^^,)
