I have been thinking of changing the name of my person OC (the one trotting at the bottom). Right now he is called Brass Arrow. The name came form a mix of a name generated by a MLP name generator at rum Monkey and the metal I think of when I say steampunk. The original generated name became the main focus of my fan fiction starring Steel Arrow.
If any of your read this what do you think keep it or change with something else? If enough interest is show I post up another journal (because you need a premium account to make a poll) with some of my options.
Luna EclipseWow that Luna episode. Not quite the voice I imagine little to high pitched and not as soft as I imagined. Well at lest one of our theories was correct she does seem like a trickster, and she just trying to fit in but a lot has changed in 1000 and she just trying what she remembers to be the norm. But that leaves one question what has she been doing for over a year? Unless the episode are not in chronological order in the airing time line.Luna Eclipse in Personal More Like This
So this episode could in pony universe time it could have taken place right after she came back so ponies could have been still scared of her. But in the past season there is really no proof to support my theory in full. But it would explain a lot of the trouble she had during the celebration one year after her return.
By no means does this take away from the episode. It will be in my top five favorites. Viva the new lunar republic.

When is information true and useful and when is it just “propaganda?” Why in fact is an image or phrase or animated art sequence “propaganda” rather than it simply being a “lie?” What about acceptable lies that define our society as much as they degrade it - - for example commercials that obviously hype a product with untruths or political advertisements full of unachievable platitudes.

While searching deviantART for images for the Earth Day article, I became intrigued with how trees have become not only such a central focus of our current environmental concerns, but also how they play such a central role in our art, whether as background or actual subject matter. There are so many Enchanted Forests on deviantART that it made me wonder if trees, so mundane and taken for granted yet at the same time so vital to life on earth and so steeped in myth, have always been the revered subjects of the world’s artists.

Artists have always feared that they are unappreciated and that the march of progress comes only from business, science and their machines. 1984 was imagined by an artist projecting these exact fears. Our guest essayist suggests the computer will never be our master, but only the super high speed counting machine it was meant to be leaving humans with only one pure task— being creative.

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

... D:Do you know how hard it is to explain to your grandad what Youtube is?... D: in Personal More Like This
Especially when he thinks the videos are all live and that when you pause a video, the person pauses in real life.
I ended up going onto Wikipedia and reading it to him.
That took some time, but I finally think he understands.
Well, he understands it's like t.v and I guess thats good enough for now.
Now I just have to explain what wikipedia is.
Oh what joy :3
Bye Mirlings!!!!! :3

WHICH MEANS THERE WILL BE AN ARMY OF THREE MIRLINGS!
WELL, MAYBE NOT EVEN THAT MANY.
BUT WHAT THE HELL!
MY MINI ARMY SHALL RULE THE WORLD!
THE ARMY OF MIR!
This is what cookies and water do to me.
Make me think I'm some form of leader.
Okay, so maybe it isn't just the cookies and water.
Maybe I want to be a leader.
Maybe I want an army to beat the absolute beetroot out of people.
I said beetroot.
Beetroot is awesome.
Start using it as an insult.
MY DAD IS A RIGHT BEETROOT!
I order you, Mirlings.
I order you O.O
Adios Mirlings :3
I am angryOkay, so I just watched Eastenders with my mum because I am bored. Anyway, this kid called Lexi Billie Mitchell got baptized and it was all sweet and cute. Sorta. Anyway, she was baptized by having a small trickle of water poured over her head.I am angry in Personal More Like This
When I got baptized I had my head dunked under 'holy' water for five seconds.
Can you see why I am mad? Blood Catholics dunking my 3 year old head under water. They tried drowning me, I'm certain of it!
Oh, and to add to that, I became partially deaf that same year! I swear they made me deaf.
I hate the Catholics who baptized me.
Maybe why I stopped going to my Catholic church and am now a mix between a Christian and Catholic.
I am the Lord Chritolic.
See, now I'm ever so slightly hyper.
See, I added an 'n' in there to annoy you Miss/Sir.
You are now a mix of being a Miss and a Sir. You are Mir.
OMG. I AM KIND OF HYPER.
But seriously. The Catholic church I go
Dragon Sculpting Tutorial on YouTube!Alright guys here you go! I finally made a video of me making one of my dragons. The video is pretty long, about an hour, so watch it when you have some time to veg and watch some sculpting. I was going to just make it a time-lapse, but ended up narrating the whole thing, so instead you get to listen to me babble on about sculpting for an hour while I'm making the dragon. It was actually pretty fun to make, so I think I'll make a pony one in the near future as well!Dragon Sculpting Tutorial on YouTube! in Personal More Like This

And yes, I know I make silly faces while I sculpt. Shut it.
Are still closed! I'm booked solid through June, but will re-open them again in late June, to start filling up July. I am more than happy to give estimates for future purchases through NOTE. Comments get buried insanely fast, so you may not hear back on them for many weeks!
My Etsy shop is still open, and any made-to-order items there are always available.

FAQHow did you get started?FAQ in Personal More Like This
I've always sculpted as a hobby and am completely self taught. In April of 2010 I decided I wanted to finally try my hand at selling my work. I started posting things on etsy and DA and veeery slowly people started noticing. My first couple of years relied heavily on commission work.
How are you so popular? I just started making sculptures to but nobody notices or buys them?
It took well over two years before I was actually getting fulltime work with decent pay. It took a TON of hard work. I sold my work for far less than I should have, because I needed customers. I also did a few shows, to get some exposure by handing out business cards. I made things as often as I could, posted often, and made sure it was very clear I was open for commissions. I posted links on everything. You have to make it easy for people to find the info they need! I posted mainly on etsy and DA, then made a fanpage on facebook very late in the game. Probably sho
