I have never found a companion who was so companionable as solitude.
Henry David Thoreau
I always thought Thoreau’s comment was simply a word game— ultimately not of much value and false at its core. A Valentines Day in solitude should mean being all alone and alone means being unhappy, pure and simple. Still, it will turn out in life that the most alone we can feel is ironically in the crush of family and friends and even in the embrace of one’s Valentines Day companion— but lost and unfulfilled in one’s dreams and visions.

The Witchas Multifaceted Icon
Throughout history artists of every discipline have been fascinated, inspired and transfixed at every historical stage of the shifting perceptions of the “Witch” in any given time or society. The seams within every page of every chapter written against or in defense of the witch have been alternatively filled with oppressive sexism, blind eyed religious bigotry, occult doctrine, fevered and forbidden lustful sexuality, misplaced fear, and reams of wide eyed superstition.
Consequently, the colors, and lines within every stroke upon every canvas and visceral depiction, carry all the burdensome weight of the long intricacies of this subject. With respect to this much maligned, religiously and politically repurposed, perpetually misunde

The chaptered comic strip, has been collected into a 100-page graphic novel – and to the still-uninitiated:
It is not quite like anything you’ve probably ever seen before. The story follows “Zee Captain” and his sidekicks as they amble through a post-apocalyptic landscape. And while that hardly seems new and different, it’s the unusually superlative graphic quality of the comic cells and the Monty Pythonesque dialogues and leaps of logic that can become quite mesmerizing. Zee Captain, his face hidden by a gas mask that gives him a Darth Vaderish look, wears what looks like a Soviet Red Army uniform from WWII, and the strip does have nourish WWII feel. It’s as if the nuclear holocaust on Hiroshima and Nagasaki had never ended and spread to every major city on Earth. But

Sometimes in youth we play crazy mind games. One gruesome game was trying to think of the worst way to die. Or even better, the "which would you choose" version of the same conceit. Another was what would be the worst torture to endure. If there is one international touchstone that best captures youthful fears and wonders in speculation of what lies beyond the veil of death and awaits as possible punishment for our sins, it must be - to the few who have actually read it to the millions who "know" it – "Dante's Inferno." Who does not shiver at the thought of being lost somewhere in the "Nine Rings of Hell?"

The guy that article is about is a famous comedian in Germany, and this guy (who died at the age of 51, tragically) is the voice of my childhood: He voiced several characters in TV shows and childrenīs tales such as "Urmel", "Pinocchio", "Tabaluga" etc.
Iīm not gonna translate al of that shit, but the main message is that this man, who made thousands of children happy by giving their favourite characters a voice to speak with, and who was one of the best German comedians, "shall burn in hell, because he was a fucking homo and died from fucking men, as it is proven that homosexuals have a life shorter than heterosexuals because of their sinfulness".

This project is granting them home, food and a future- a future they could never have without education.

This only addresses for the haters. Not the people who actually have criticism about the show.
First, Give this show a f**kin chance. It's not even air yet, and some people are insulting the show for its lack of action. ANIMES are not just for action. It needs to have a story to back it up. It's something new and refreshing for Toonami. If all animes have just strictly just action in it, it wouldn't make sense without a strong plot. These are the same people who hated on Casshern Sins, Samurai 7, and Eureka Seven. Those shows actually told a story that back up the action.
Second, Don't f**kin compare this show as "The New Naruto that will kill Toonami again." I am not about to see my favorite block get cancelled for the second time. There were far more reasons why Toonami fell apart in 2008 than just one show. Now, it's 2008 al

Everywhere on Youtube, there is a lot of RANT videos of somebody complaining why today culture sucks and why they want to go back to the old days. In past journals, I have talked about why some television networks runs away from their true identity and follows or copys what's popular. MTV runs away from music, G4 runs away from gaming, Cartoon Network [almost] runs away from cartoons, etc. As much as I don't like the directions they are going, I'm willing to accept that other people might like them.

Anyways, It's been 3 weeks since Toonami relaunced themselves. We got a new look, new font, TOM 5, the return of SARA, New Absolution, and return of IGPX & One Piece.
Toonami really impressed me with the look and shocked me, and probably everybody, when SARA returned. Although, she doesn't have her british accent, it was good to see her back in her face form. I wonder if they will give her a full body again. I love the new voice actress, Dana Swanson. Maybe, she can fake an accent.
Also, I really loved it when they got One Piece back, as well as IGPX. Some people are concern why Toonami is airing animes and shows that we have seen before.
Cause we wanted them back on Toonami and to introduce those shows to new members of the Toonami Faithful who haven't seen them before. However, it's time to get some new shows that haven't been aired on Television, like Soul Eater

1) People say "so-and-so doesn't get enough love" or "this character could use more attention" when it's actually one of the most popular characters in the fandom and you can find at least six billion pieces of fanart or material related to said character by doing one search alone.
2) People think they're "special" or "just weird like that ^__^" for liking 'psycho' characters. The "lol yea im sort of different becuz my fetish is crazy guys/chicks/characters and i guess that makes me strange lolol xD" variety.
Because seeing at least ten million characters, original or established, with the same 'tude grin, blood-covered mouth, goffick or scene attire, and "i-will-lick-this-bloody-knife-to-show-how-hardcore-i-am" generic anime "crazy person" pose is something you'd never find in a million years.

I've been super busy lately. But it's good to be busy.
I've just been trying to catch up with adding my artwork to the shirt store and the redbubble store so I can start working on new things.
It's been difficult to do since I've been working back at the sign shop (which is such a fantastic place for me to be right now.)
Just a little about my background... I got into graphic design professionally back in 2001 at the sign shop.
At that time I knew nothing. No schooling or anything. I just had a knack for what "looked right".
But this kind of graphic design wasn't anything spectacular. Making parking signs and real estate signage isn't exactly exciting.
But it helped me to learn a bit about programs and how to make signage.. all the do's and don'ts to getting work done smarter and faster.
I learned a lot from that place. I also learned quite a bit on how to organize all the paperwork in a business, files in a computer, etc etc...

And, as I said before I'm going to need proof-readers because I'm bound to have made mistakes in the dialogue balloons.

Steven sticks out his sword, and cause a sound wave of a slash into the opponent. Each wave a slash has identify them by size. If you just press B, the slash will be faster, but weaker.

?I'll never forget that moment. I knew that making movesets with demtramential to my well-being. It all strated when found out about Smash Brothers Lawl, and it's spinoffs and fans, which insperied me the make a moveset myself. I create StevenStar at the time, so i deicded to make Steven_Star's moveset, and later Bandana Dee, Dampierre, and Blaziken. Then later, after FlutterShy's Movesets. I saw that it got 10 dislikes, and then I started the Troll Wars because I throught Minun333 was jealous that FlutterShy was done on Flipnote instead of Sony Vegas. That's why I get easily distracted like ILAR while I'm making Joseph, Lance, and Naoto moveset, it takes a long time. Then i made more movesets in desperation that any of the trolls like ASC, DDD, FSML well not conplan. I also wished that that Me, as well as the other lawler, can get respect like Chin and YTPguy17. I learned the hard way that I was wrong about Minun333 and Aaron for returning FlutterShy, who was called Lost Friend.? in Personal More Like This

Unfortunately, when it comes to ponies, most of the shippings tend to be "yuri" (or lesbian)which isn't all too unexpected in a show with mostly female characters. Nothing against homosexuals here, I just don't see any of the ponies as lesbians (not even Rainbow Dash). So yeah: most of my favorite shippings will be heterosexual (what few actually exist in the fandom).
And I'm starting with my all-time favorite: Fluttershy/Big Macintosh (FlutterMac). These two were meant for each other. One's a shy girl; the other, a man of few words. And both are kind, gentle souls. They complement each other so well, which is why they're probably one of the most popular po

In my last list, I listed my top five favorite and least favorite episodes in the first season. In this list, I will be listing the same thing for season two.
