Hopefully, they won't suddenly shut down the D.Z.T.R. Department and there will be more tours for me to "guide".

I'm currently carrying a calendar that says 2012 on it, but I am pretty sure that these days aren't correct anyway to our year and Captain keeps scribbling things in the margins whenever I get distracted enough for the calendar to be snatched out of my hands. I found the calendar more or less intact and it's kinda impressive that it lasted from way back in 2012. It must have held some sort of personal importance to it's owner to seal it away in a plastic container with words "the Mayans were wrong, trust no-one!"

Today captain declared as "REMEMBERANCES OF THE PAST DAY".
The day begun with me getting smacked with a broken laptop and yells "YOU'VE GOT MAIL!".
I tried to protest that laptops weren't attacking people in the mornings back in the past. To this, Captain declared that in fact they didn't have to, because users were so addicted to reading their daily mail facts that every morning they woke up smacking their heads on their laptops.
Then my head was treated to a barrage of empty, metal SPAM cans with words "SPAM MAIL! DODGE THE SPAM! USE FILTERS!".
With these words, captain gave me two old tennis rackets. The tennis rackets had yellow duck-tape stickers on them with words "DELETE" and "BLOCK EMAIL ADDRESS".

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.

The most well known of these legends, the Holy Grail, the Ark of the Covenant, The Excalibur of Geek mythology, is that of the lost E.T. Cartridges – arguably the worst video game in history - buried somewhere in the New Mexico desert.
Now, they’ve been hiding unwanted stuff out in the deserts of America as far back as 1923. When filming finished on Cecil B. DeMille’s The Ten Commandments, they worked out it’d be cheaper to just bury the set than dismantle it. This lent the E.T. Cart legend a little credibility, but even I was skeptical of anything ever being found….

I’d played around with the demo a little while back, but didn’t think it worth the price they were asking as it simply wasn’t as versatile as the Clickteam software I’ve been using, in one form or another, since 1993.
However, at 75% off, I thought “what the hell”.
Now, I’ve only been messing around with the system for a few hours, but I can see how it’d be easier for me to make the “great big f**k-off” RPG I’ve always wanted to put together using RPG Maker rather than MultiMedia Fusion. With the latter, I’d have to put together all the internal workings myself. With the former, that’s already in place. All I have to do is focus on the story and pretty graphics, which is useful as I have zero programming know-how. That’s why

Having played through both Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel, I’m not entirely sure that either Gearbox or 2K really knew themselves why Borderlands worked, because both additional entries into the canon failed to grab me in the same way.

Guys are fascinated by them.
Through single-digit ages, they find the very concept of them hilarious, and when puberty kicks in the mere thought of lady-lumps generally causes some movement in the trouser department. These weak-willed creatures will follow them anywhere and they will do almost anything if it means simply being permitted to gaze upon them for a few moments more.
The entertainment industries, from the big movie makers to the lowly art whores (like me) know this, and have played upon it for years in order to separate males from their money. As a result, mass media is awash with the female form in all manner of provocative poses and dress.
Many women are fed up with this, but is the whole thing “sexist”?
Well, it’s impossible and indeed wrong to say a whole industry is one thing or another. Ultimately it’s all one, big, dumb organism that simply moves with the cultural winds. It perpetuates what sustains it. It’s only when you break it
Slenderman AttackTwo girls in Wisconsin have been arrested for stabbing a classmate, apparently with the intention of becoming minions of the Slenderman. They were caught walking near a local highway, en route to Wisconsin’s Nicolet National Forest, where they believe the fictitious character lives.Slenderman Attack in Personal More Like This
The victim, who was stabbed 19 times, is making a recovery.
All the girls involved are around 12 years old.
That’s all terrible, but what actually irks me more is that a spokesman for the Slenderman creator, and administrator for the website where most fiction revolving around the character is posted, has said "We are not teaching children to believe in a fictional monster, nor are we teaching them to be violent."
I think it’s pretty bad that a person who comes up with a concept has to be afraid of the reaction to how other people use it. Especially children. They’re random, dangerous little buggers.
Think back to your own childhood. What was the stupidest thing you did, and why?
Inverted heroes are not a move forward.Taking a known hero of fiction and altering their gender and/or race is a stunt. A gimmick.

There have been a few news articles to stoke my irritation over the last couple of months.

Personally, I think all this crap is side-stepping the issue of diversity rather than addressing it. If the likes of Marvel were really serious about it, they’d invest time and capital creating new heroes who are a different gender/race from the get-go. Building up a new mythology for a female or black character would be so much str

Love, most hardest subject to explain in words. So what is Love? Well love can be shown in different ways, to a person, to a object, a creature or even a subject. When we think it, mos of us think couples, most commonly the male and female couples. Since Love is portrayed in too many ways I can count, I'll stay with the subject of the person to person love. When it comes to a person's life, we feel somehow we want someone we know we can trust to hold, talk to, share ideas with, go out and do stuff, and to most, show our passion. When we do find that person, we feel such joy in our hearts, happy we found a true person that you know you will love forever.

We have the capability to create and destroy, is this meant to be our destiny? We all are capable of so much, strong emotions, critical thinking, planting, and even create. Hell, right now your reading a language on a piece of hardware built and created by your own kind. but such as humanity can have good feats, like kindness and love, we also have great greed and ability of destruction. Humans take more than what we actually need, we even collect toys, I collect transformers for crying out loud, but why? we eat more junk food now than we did years ago, just because it taste b

If you're unfamiliar with the Eisner-nominated Lackadaisy, click this and enjoy one of the finest comics ever committed to paper:
( http://www.lackadaisycats.com/index.php )
This is a momentous occasion to me for a couple reasons.
First, of course, Lackadaisy is among my favorite comics of all time. Tracy's art and wit has been a colossal inspiration, a monument to what a spark and a pencil can bring to the world.
And secondly, I see this as a milestone on the way towards a better future for all of comics.
The past few decades mainstream comics have been, by and large, more of the same. More capes, more spandex, more reboots.
Now I like Professor X as much as anyone. It's not bad that this stuff continues- what IS bad is that it has continued to the delibera
Be Clueless, Write Awesome.Why finish anything when you might not be good enough yet?Be Clueless, Write Awesome. in Personal More Like This
There are myriad ways to avoid completing a project, and one of them is to become the eternal student. Always learning, always improving, so that future hypothetical story keeps getting better and better... While somehow never making its way into reality.
But on the other hand, it might help to know a bit about swimming before jumping overboard. So where do you draw the line? What do you absolutely need to know before getting your feet wet with a story?
I can't speak for anyone else. But when I started Dreamkeepers, I didn't know jack about story.
I didn't know about inciting events, verisimilitude, thematic armature, pinch points, none of it.
Quite simply, I did not know what the hell I was doing. Which makes for an interesting question about my first books.
Why don't they suck?

We're drawing the final chapter of Volume 4. I finished page 15 of Chapter 12 yesterday- which is page 84 of the book as a whole.
And there are still over 30 pages to draw- egads.
Stopping to think about it, the effort required seems almost overwhelming. Even when Volume 4 is completed, we still have the rest of the series to tackle- years upon years of work. How do we do it? When you're in the midst of a long term project, how do you stay on track and keep from getting burned out?
There are a 3 keys to staying productive, and staying sane, in the midst of titanic workloads.
Key 1: Love work.
It's not enough to like the *idea* of having a story. Everybody does that. But the ones who pull through in the end are the ones who actually enjoy the work itself. Because that's the real payo
Awkward Little MiracleSixty five million years ago, a 6.2 mile wide asteroid slammed into the earth and unleashed hell. The impact released 200 million times more energy than our mightiest atomic bombs, blasting superheated gas and debris in a corona of destruction that settled into a post-apocalyptic orbit around the planet.Awkward Little Miracle in Personal More Like This
The dinosaurs found it impossible to survive the event.
The alligators? Just dandy. Maybe a bit smug seeing all those cocky tyrannosaurs get theirs.
Contemplating this helps to explain our derpy little miracle:
Raging fire and collapsing infrastructure? Whatever. Stop Drop and Glare evidently works like a charm. That and being built like a little tank.

Okay! Yeah! I am going to try to answer this pile of 1.3K messages and notes I have let stack up. See, this is why one should never have a procrastination period, everything becomes a mountain.
So! To answer the question about where I was, I have something to confess: I hated my effing job. I got a job that totally destroyed my morale, hurt my self-esteem, and left me feeling so powerless, so upset, that nothing got done these past year. I didn't write, I ate too much, I felt bad.
Yep. I got a job at a fast food place.
I'll only tell more to people who really want to know, but long story short, far too many coworkers talking down to me and made me feel really upset.
But enough of that! Why am I returning? Well first off, I need to comment on everyone's drawings, and do some kind of response! In fact, it might best if you ask you questions here if you have a

About human and anthro characters, and some genres to catch in the future.
Well, we must say it.
of all that genres. we are already making 2 of them. one with anthro (brand new, not a spinoff), and one with humans.
We are creating the characters and all that. so this will be revealed on 2 months maybe.
Well, some smallest projects like "Miles Kartman" are going too, we took the idea, and become it into something more elaborated.
Same with the Police gal.
