He was an artist you might not know.
But you’ve met his children…
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

Opening the Darkest Door
I have recently come across a most disturbing phenomenon in my studies of the Diabolic Infestation of the Soul. It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.
From the Exorcist through Paranormal Activity, generation after generation of “believers” seem to have come to the reali

Ninja Turtles by lukekeith
The recently announced changes to the core mythos of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the backlash from fans over the ending to Mass Effect 3 have ignited an incredible discussion about the rapidly evolving “collaborative” relationship between producers and consumers of videogames, movies, and similar “products.” Now it’s exploded beyond the secure borders of top news publications, gamin

mmm so just a little update into what I've been up to lately ~
I'm still surviving school, and I'm somewhere into the second quarter, and *thankfully* I'm staying caught up with everything. A cheerful update to the side of that, I'm over a third done rewriting Black Knight, and things are going rather smoothly thus far. I am very encouraged by this, but of course this means that I am one step closer to having people that know me read it. That terrifies me to no end, but I'm getting to the point that I'll be over it when the time actually comes. By then, I'll be too focused on White Knight to care.
A more recent thing, I arrived home after visiting a college in South Carolina. It's a place I've been thinking about for a while, but without actually seeing the place and getting to know it first hand, I was very reluctant to be completely set on it. Now that I've been there, I can tell you all that I absolutely love it down there, and I am very encouraged now
So apparently I'm playing a new game...Today was a tad interesting. My mom came home from work early today, and on her way home she saw that there were some garage sales in the area. So after lunch, she asked if I wanted to go with her and just browse for who knows what. So we went, and found a couple things, but there weren't that many sales (we went to three total), so we just were driving around down some local streets that we'd never been on before. After reaching a dead end, we turned around and cut through a housing development in progress, and I was admiring some of the houses as we went by (I've gotten into architecture and interior design so I love studying the layout of houses). My mom mentioned that they usually give tours of a model house, and she asked if I wanted to see one.So apparently I'm playing a new game... in Personal More Like This
I didn't think we had time to take a tour, but we stopped by the office/model house anyway to get some layouts for me to look at. Well, we're the only two people there, right? And the two people that were in the office were (as usual) very
I'm Just Me Life is just a general circle of good and bad taking the prominent role. There are highs and lows to everything, with the occasional really bad day thrown in just to remind us that everything can go wrong in a second. There’s still a lot of good, but sometimes it gets so overshadowed by everything else that it’s hard to see. So while the good moments are there, one always remembers the darkness that lies in wait.I'm Just Me in Personal More Like This
A lot of you know the stuff I went through last year (and for those of you that don’t, totally cool. It’s not a story that needs retelling this many times). The short of it is, last year (even before the really bad stuff) changed everything in how I view life. Whether it was the general concept, what I want out of life, and even just who I am and what God has for me…all of it came into quest

What's the Difference Between....Allen Gregory and Brickleberry?What's the Difference Between.... in Personal More Like This
This is a genuine question because I genuinely don't know. It's no secret that I tend to not like adult cartoons. The formula seems to be say something purposefully offensive to piss people off and mix it with as much raunch and sex and violence as possible and boom you've got a hit on your hand. Yet, the difference between Allen Gregory and Brickleberry is that one gets cancelled six episodes in and the other goes on for three or more seasons. Yet, they're both the same kind of shock for shocks sake. If one is popular, logically the other should be.
There are obviously good cartoons aimed at adults like Futurama, but sometimes it's extremely hard when I'm reviewing a show like Adult Party Cartoon or Mr. Pickles (and no, it's not a goddamn Rugrats episode) to not feel like I'm critiquing a hentai for having porn when a deer eats a placenta or a dog tears off something's head. When reviewing Breadwinners I know that a children's carto
Top 11 Worst Family Guy Episodes*That I've seenTop 11 Worst Family Guy Episodes in Personal More Like This
So with the ratings trap of Life of Brian I've decided to not only stop reviewing Family Guy episodes, but just being done with Seth MacFarlane's projects altogether. If I didn't know any better, I'd say that he wanted me to keep pelting his show. Because... he made a worse episode. Or someone did, I don't care. So, I'll get back to reviewing Family Guy's atrocities because... my god. I can't just let another SpongeBob run loose. Actually, modern Family Guy is worse than modern SpongeBob. So, here are my top 11 worst Family Guy episodes.
Number 11: Road to the Multiverse
I understand that a lot of people like this episode, and to be fair, it doesn't have a really good concept. It has a fucking amazing concept. What's the problem? No. Research. Done. First alternate universe is extremely advanced because Christianity never happened, despite much of science surviving thanks to Christian monks. And that the Catholic church has always been supporti

HOLLOMAN AIR FORCE BASE, NEW MEXICO, USA, OCTOBER 30 2012: A drone pilot, left, and a drone sensor operator practice
on a simulator at Holloman AFB, where drone pilots and drone sensor operators are trained. Working side by side with the pilot,
the drone's Sensor Operator watches targets (sometimes for hours or days) and tags them with a laser just before the pilot
shoots the drone's missile (photo Gilles Mingasson for Der Spiegel).
The New Mexico desert gets blistering hot, but inside the small windowless container where Brandon Bryant worked as a drone operator for the U.S. Air Force it stays a cool 63 degrees all year long.
Sixty-three finger numbing degrees and Bryant describes sitting with a group of other pilots looking at more than a dozen computer monitors. The crew are directing drones over Afghanistan 6,250 miles away and the screens jump with a two to five second delay, as infrared video sent from the UAVs whips through the air t
Israeli Military Spray Skunk at Palestinian HomesThe Israeli military has been looking for an alternative to tear gas canisters for "crowd control," as they saturate Palestinian neighborhoods.Israeli Military Spray Skunk at Palestinian Homes in Personal More Like This
Israeli forces have sprayed Palestinian homes in the village of Nabi Saleh with "skunk"* as a punishment for organising weekly protests against the Apartheid Wall built on occupied West Bank land.
Human rights watchdog B'Tselem published a video showing Israel's armoured tanker trucks fitted with "water cannons" which spray the foul fluid at Palestinian protesters.
It is reported that the Israeli forces also targeted all the houses of the village with the liquid formula. A B'Tselem report pointed out the effects of this 'Skunk' spray included causing environmental damage.
B'Tselem has reported that this non-lethal weapon has been added to Israel's armoury for crowd control, even though the video shows clearly that it is also used against Palestinian-owned property.

Love Your Enemies in Your StoriesThis morning someone commented on a youtube trailer I made for one of :iconfleetlordreach:'s original story ideas.Love Your Enemies in Your Stories in Personal More Like This
The story line of Dixie and the Dragons is the alternate history of the Civil War in which The South domesticated dragons to fight on their side giving them an advantage, at least until The North followed suit.
The comment was simple but it stayed with me:
'Um... which side is the audience supposed to support?'
This morning was also Palm Sunday, one of several major observances at my church leading to the commemoration of the crucifixion of Jesus of Nazareth: the redemption of all of humanity's sins through the perfect sacrifice of the creator of the universe.
By way of a Lenten observance I decided to watch the movie Passion of the Christ, a movie that till today I'd only seen once. It's an incredibly harsh story, which follows since it basically blow by blow (literally) pres

10: Bowser from Mario
No he doesn't have much motivation or character, but due to the lost art of expressive character models one look at Bowser tells us all we need to know: he's dangerous. Bowser is huge, dragon-like, and also has the characteristics of a bull so you realize at once he'll probably breath fire and charge you. In later days Bowser has made a fine transition to three dimensions, maintaining the menace in design and size but also the cartoonish whimsy of his coloration and perpetually irritable expression.
A classic, memorable foe you couldn't wait to face.

A few weeks ago I got an email from a representative at one of the other Cambridge colleges. She said that there was to be an Arts Festival hosted at Queens' College this February, and that they would like to feature some of my MOCs as part of their art exhibition! The theme of the festival is 'Do It Yourself', so really it couldn't be more fitting. I will probably post a more in-depth journal about it closer to the time (perhaps in a before-and-after style), but I'm terribly excited.
Anyway, I had to choose five photographs to submit, each with a suitable description, and I had the option of having a space set out so that I could display some of the actual MOCs, should I bring them along on the day. Eventually I decided to submit the Camera Spider, Fissure, Psystrike, the Swordfish, and Yanmega (which can be seen here); additionally I shall bring along the Nameplate and a handful of miniMOCs wi
