Hyrule Gets ‘Game of Thrones’ Intro Treatment
Some amazing artists put together this animated sequence, which mimics the opening credits of Game of Thrones, except with a map of Hyrule from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. We have to give some major props for this video’s uncanny ability to make us feel incredible amounts of GoT-related excitement for this weekend as well as mist

PAUL CEZANNE: The Bridge from Monet to Picasso
Untitled by FilledArles
January 19 marks the birthday of Paul Cezanne in 1839.
By the time of his death in 1906, he was recognized, especially by younger artists, as the genius who began his career under the tutelage of impressionist Camille Pissarro, and then went on to become the “architect” who reduced the subjects of his paintings to cylinders,

Hanuman by molee
There has always been this obsession with the others we share this planet with.
We communicate with them on certain basic levels and yet they inhabit a plane so different from ours: savage, instinctive, a life of sheer survival. At the same time they can do things beyond human abilities: fly through the skies, swim the oceans, apply t

Every Day is Pancake Day
There seem to be quite a lot of discrepancies in determining the actual date of National Pancake Day.
Internet sources list it variously as February 25 or 26 or September 26. For Christians observing Lenten rituals, “Shrove Tuesday” (on February 17 this year) is “Pancake Day,” the day you gorge on before beginning your fast. The IHOP (International House of Pancakes) should be a determining authority, but their advertising
We LoveBy Kasandra A. PoindexterWe Love in Personal More Like This
For Ben Pruitt
Sleepy actions can be just as open and truthful as those of a drunken man.
Much more healthy for the body, for sure.
Last night ~ priceless.
He asked me what I thought of his sweet nothings - worried I was bothered by his giant romantic streak - NEVER!
Muttering, half asleep, that I of course adored his words sweeter than honey; I asked for more, something I never asked for when awake.
I asked for his love for me.
I can only imagine what he felt at my curled up figure saying that cuddled against his warm body.
As we began. Tangled the next morning he brought up the whispers in the night.
Both terrified of rejection, our youth, and the devotion required for those words...
My SmileFor Ben PruittMy Smile in Personal More Like This

I had tuck it in a corner
Like a note to inspire myself later during my dark days
Or money left in a coat pocket four years later.
Do you know where I found my smile, reader?
With a friend, someone I had entrusted with my vulnerability.
That's what my smile is, you know? Vulnerable, unprotected, and un-phased by the scars on my heart.
I unknowingly gave it to him because like a Wolf who protects its cubs,
He protected my smile even in the darkest of times.
He was always opinionated but never judging.
Thank you for keeping my smile safe.
Now that I have it back,
May offer to protect yours?

So impersonal until I knew the author.
His words struck me like a cord of music.
Do I believe him now? Yes.
To believe these that are inside me.
To not hold back the hopeless romantic that I am due to fear of getting hurt again.
To open my vulnerability to my best friend who has only just discovered my existence.
For him, I will try.
Is to be there for him because I know he needs it just as much as me.
Is not letting him take the brunt of the abuse, even if he thinks it will help.
Is tenderly kissing him no matter how my friends feel.
Is the goal both of us are striving for.
He is finally mine, and I am not letting that go.
Seeds of HopeGoodbye baggage. I don't need you.Seeds of Hope in Personal More Like This
Be smushed and crushed and demolished in some other place.
My heart is not for you. My soul is not for you.
I don't need your clutter anymore.
You do not deserve my tears. My emotions shall not be focused on you anymore.
I will grow from this. For every destruction allows for new life to grow.
The seeds of hope have been planted. Soon they will sprout with new thoughts.
New words. Softer thoughts. Kindness towards myself and other.
Peace will ingrain itself into my psyche that I will have no choice but to be calm.
Emotions will be pure. Happiness will flow without being forced.
If I want to smile, I will. If I don't, I won't. These are my life rules now.
Goodbye baggage. I wish you the best of your destructive life.

She was going to see the pandas today if it was the last thing she did. She had primped for the panda and everything! Pig tails and an adorable pink dress. She curtsied and bowed and danced for the panda.
The sad part of this tale, it really was the last thing she did. The panda became so enthralled with her that it fought its way out of that cage and gobbled down the little girl.

5 Ways to Create Opportunities with Bobby Chiu5 Ways to Create Opportunities with Bobby Chiu5 Ways to Create Opportunities with Bobby Chiu in Personal More Like This
by Bobby Chiu & Flynn Ringrose
1 - "No" really means "Not right now."
One of the most important things I’ve learned about opportunities is that the people that receive the most, and I’m counted in this, are the people that don't take no as final. We’re okay with getting a harsh no, or a few of them. When rejection happens, learn to put a smile on your face, go back, reassess, and come back with a new approach or completely new portfolio. If you know in your heart that you are willing to take ten harsh rejections without giving up, then most likely you won't have to.
2 - Don’t sit waiting for your ship to come in.
One thing I see all the time that I think is unfortunate is that many artists wait and wait for the perfect job. Here’s my advice for that, just go and do it! Just go pretend. One of the things that helped me starting out before we did Alice in Wonderland, was pretending that
Five Key Elements of a Great RoutineInterview by Flynn RingroseFive Key Elements of a Great Routine in Personal More Like This
is to wake up hours before your day job begins and spend that time doing your own stuff. This is very effective, but it’s difficult to keep up with because it often means you have to get up at 4:00 or 5:00 in the morning and that’s especially difficult in the Winter when the Sun isn’t even up at those times!
This is great because, one, you’re beginning the day doing a hard thing which makes you feel good because you started off with something challenging. Two, when you get up hours before work and do your own art, you’ll see results, that you created something, and that makes you feel even more productive. Why give your best hours, and this is weird to say, but why give your best hours to your job? Why not give it to yourself which will in turn, benefit your job?
don’t do emails until the afternoon. If you email them in the morning, then they might respond to you in

Chocolate( meant to be uploaded last month )Today I am having a particularly bad day. Let me open a box of chocolates I have in my drawer. There are ten in all.Chocolate( meant to be uploaded last month ) in Personal More Like This
First Chocolate: Plain, no filling, nothing fancy. Nothing spectacular
Second Chocolate: Again, it is plain, with no filling. Nothing Extraordinary.
Third Chocolate: I bite into it, and a sweet, creamy filling encases my tongue. This has got to be the best out of the ones I've tasted. Very delicious, very memorable.
Fourth Chocolate: Hoping for another delicious morsel, I bite inside, then spit it out. The horrible taste still lingers, as I realize this one is coffee flavor. It would take a long time to get the traces of this out of my mouth
Fifth Chocolate: Tentatively, I put this into my mouth. For some reason, I expect to taste a delicious one, perhaps to make up for the bland and horrible ones I have had in the past. Nothing. It is a plain chocolate. No filling, no frills, no risks, no ruin. It isn't sweet or bitter. It is just a regular piece. This is the last choco
Explain Cabbage..A forgotten fruit, all clad in veils,Explain Cabbage.. in Personal More Like This
So lonely in its mystery.
Its green skin tingles, shrouded in cloth,
A favorite of none, except for me.
I pity it, an odd recluse,
Similar to none in the family.
Its shield is thin, the mask could break,
And yet the mask is all we see.
It could be beautiful, if it tried,
Yet it hides in the leaves, afraid to be.
But oh, how curious, when we remove its leaves,
And cook it, it becomes a delicacy.
The Inherent Degeneracy of GamergateIn a world where unarmed, innocent people are murdered freely by authority figures, slavery is at an all-time high, someone opens fire on an American school almost every month and people die from inadequate, needlessly overpriced health care, some people think the biggest and most upsetting issue in our society is about video game opinions.The Inherent Degeneracy of Gamergate in Personal More Like This
And, unfortunately, these people create a serious issue. Despite the fact that they rally around a fundamentally trivial and pointless cause, their furious and aimless harassment of others has become something worth talking about.
If you ask a Gamergater, they'll tell you that their fight is over "dishonesty in journalism." That's a pretty big fight. Journalistic bias has convinced Americans that climate change might not even be happening, that minorities commit more crime than whites and that we actually have any reason to be dropping bombs on the Middle East. Mainstream media is a clusterfuck of biases and sensationali-wait, what's that? Ga
The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers)Howdy friends,The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers) in Personal More Like This
There has been an exciting development!
A couple of months ago, the folks at Chaosium Inc. [ http://www.chaosium.com/ ], the publishers of the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game, confirmed their desire to publish The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers). When I received word I immediately began revising the now almost two-year-old text and illustrations to ensure that the print version is of the highest possible quality. I am currently about a third of the way through this process, and thought it would be good time to let you all know that the oft-requested dead tree edition of this story looks like it is actually becoming a reality.
I continue to be grateful for the encouragement of the folks around here, and I look forward to updating you all with any further news as it arrives.
In the meantime, I'm posting up the pages of The Statement of Randolph Carter (for beginning readers) I was working on when the word came through from Ch
