Post Birthday JournalFirst off, Thanks to everyone who wished me a happy birthday yesterday. Then Thanks to :icondire-knight: for the +80 I'll be putting them to good use soon, hopefully. My birthday was very very...alright. I had a few friends over paid a visit to another friend, had some fast food, hung out. Nothing special but hey not bad for a birthday on a Tuesday.Post Birthday Journal in Personal More Like This
For those of you that don't know, I'm 24 now. Every year around my birthday I reflect on how I'm different from the me I was a year ago, what I've gone through and what I've learned. Last year at my birthday was one of the lowest points in my life for reasons I'd rather not get into. A lot of things got worse for me, but it lead to a period of getting better, healing and learning, 2012 has been an improvement for me. I've been on what I like to call a "steady systematic decline"(which is a lyric I pulled from a NIN song) for the previous three years. Being in a better place now that I was by my birthday the previous year is s

Mototaur:sometime in 2007-Nov. 4th 2012That's right. Our Beloved Mototaur has been disassembled. He is no more, and I don't think I'll be rebuilding him any time soon, if at all. I did not make this decision lightly, but am still not wholeheartedly sure about this decision. Part of me wonders if an even better Mototaur resides somewhere in a different or possibly radically different arrangement of the parts that made up his previous version, or if this MOC really has reached what the other part of me feels is an "evolutionary dead end."Mototaur:sometime in 2007-Nov. 4th 2012 in Personal More Like This
As you know, many MOCers recycle their MOCs, in fact I'd say a majority of MOCers do. It seems those of us that build a MOC then commit those parts to its construction on a long term basis or indefinitely are few and far between. There's arguments for either approach. Both have their pros and cons. Recycling means new MOCs, constantly moving on to a new idea. In my opinion, that sometimes leads to the MOCer presenting the same or very similar idea over and over again. Some MOCers make it wor

My grandmother and I are having a debate. There's all those people in the mid-to-southern US that are being affected by tornados. I think that its stupid that people live there, then get so surprised and sad when a Tornado rips their house off its foundations. She just says I'm cold hearted. Its common sense to me, if the area is prone to a predictable natural disaster, then you probably shouldn't live there. Cause this is what, like the second or third year that bad tornados have messed up that part of the US? And OH MY GOD, 39 PEOPLE DIED! THAT'S SUCH A TRAVESTY! Like that many people don't die every day in some other messed up part of the world, and for a lot more stupid reasons.

I'm gonna be a totally unoriginal hack right now, and A) run with the crowd and put theme songs to my MOCs, and B) do so by placing music that other people wrote to my creations based on similarities or association of lyrics and themes.

Our superficial societyLet me begin with a short anecdote:Our superficial society in Personal More Like This
I was in a hotel room with friends, on the last day of what had been, until then, an amazing holiday. Much like this journal, the topic of conversation quickly turned to girls and relationships.
We somehow began talking about bases, and to which one each of us had gotten. For those who have yet to come across the term, it's a baseball analogy where 'first base' is kissing, followed by progressively more intimate actions, and there are no prizes for guessing what 'a home run' signifies. I announced, with neither pride nor shame, that I have yet to reach first base at the ripe age of 17; this was received with a mixture of shock and pity, which baffles me. One then went on to say that he should set me up with one of his female friends, which I outright dismissed.
The story gets mildly more interesting here. Fast forward a few hours: after having visited the bar, we return to the hotel room, with one of my friends managing to get himself incredibly drun

Naturally, everyone was keen to be early for the initial assembly of the group. The thirty-or-so of us gathered around the entrance without a word, until one boy broke the ice with the line "So… awkward silence it is, then." Slowly

The scene is a primary school classroom in 2004, and one of the other kids is being mean to 8-year-old Aiden. The teasing is unprovoked and meaningless; if I remember correctly, he called me a square.
That wasn't very nice, thinks 8-year-old Aiden. I didn't do anything wrong. What the hell is a 'square' anyway, aside from the quadrilateral? I don't know, but he definitely meant it as an insult. Well, I shan't let him have his fun. I shall simply ignore him and get on with my sums. In fact, maybe he did that because he's jealous of my maths, and that he wants to feel superior. Yeah, that's it. I hold the upper ground here.
Hold on a second. "I'm good at maths, therefore he is wrong"? That doesn't sound right. If anything, that makes me sound big-headed. I really do wonder what pleasure he gets from saying stuff like that. I guess he's just mean. I don't like him.

Smoke and mirrorsAllow me to outline a typical blog of mine:Smoke and mirrors in Personal More Like This
I begin by presenting a topic, and my generally predictable view on it; this involves an abundance of semicolons, rhetorical questions and the word 'society'. I attempt to argue from a neutral standpoint, though the first person remains dominant. Though conclusions are supposed to be assertive, mine end up being airy and wistful.
Were it not for fear of repetition, I probably would've written about racism, or our obsession about negativity, or perhaps the more expected 'What it's like to be a 17-year-old who still plays with Lego'. I'm conscious of the fact that this detached register gets tiring after a while – I hope that this one isn't so monotonous.
The topic of choice today is one on which my opinion used to be absolutely steadfast: smoking. I personally see it as a vile, entirely disadvantageous lifestyle, since what you are doing is spending money on killing yourself, slowly but steadily. In an age when the health risks have been un

My life so far has been a lie.Roses are grey, violets are also grey... in Personal More Like This
I'll start by dispelling a misconception: not all colour blind people see in black and white. (Admittedly my misleading title isn't helping the cause.) This is only the case for very very few people, and so far I haven't met anyone with monochrome vision. The truth is that the majority of colour blind people simply have difficulties telling the difference between some (but not all) colours.
Right, onto the interesting part! The subtitle is doubly suitable here, since the term 'red-green colour blindness' does not just mean red and green. Makes it even more difficult to explain, huh? Speaking from my own experience, there's very

Now, I don't know about you, but I'm quite happy with technology these days.

And yet, it is often the case that we look back into the past, at, say, my parents' generation. They didn't have the luxury of computers, their cameras relied on film instead of pixels, and things like 3D were unheard of. Compared to our current living standards today, it's easy to think that life was 'hard' back then - but they lived through it quite happily. Perhaps, while they were writing letters instead of texts, they felt grateful that they had a postage system at all. In fact, they probably felt the same way as I do now: "Wow, we have this fancy new stuff like trams. It must've

t seems there’s nothing quite as dear to the hearts of many of our deviants as their production of fan art, and at the same time, there is nothing so knotted with legal and ethical headaches. Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but in the form of fan art it has also become one of the most frustratingly complicated. At some point, the sheer volume of fan art around a single property may become so large that the issue rises to another level of scrutiny by the creators of the original work.
With this dynamic in mind, we thought the following panel that Josh Wattles, our Advisor In Chief here at deviantART, and a mystery guest named Harold Smith, gave at Comic Con this year might be of immense help in understanding the ever evolving elements of fan art

Anyways, allow me to explain to you all a very effective weight loss routine.
You're tired of looking at your belly in the mirror; it's jiggly, round, ugly...at least, that is what one would think of himself.
How would you go about losing this weight as quick as possible? Well there's always some way--
Eat less and exercise more.
Oh, haven't we heard that a few thousand times? Ja.
Let's see if we can work something out of that...How about we cut down 500 calories a day in what we consume? How about we drink eight cups of water throughout the day? And how about we throw away the sugary cereals and treats in the cabinets?
That sounds like a lovely idea.
If you cut down 500 calories per day, that's 3500 calories a week. Thirty-five hundred calories = 1 pound of fat
Drinking 64 fluid ounces of water a day will help raise metabolism, as well as the consumption of foods such as lean meats, green leafy vegetables, steel cut oats

This "group," if you may, is simply going to be a small organization that boycotts these particular sex role plays with your characters.

I WANT YOU
TO BUILD SOMETHING!"
Same rules apply as last time: It must be built out of only Lego bricks and Lego products. (eg. stickers made by Lego are not bricks, but they're okay. Stickers, or anything else, not made by Lego are not okay.)
As before, please submit your creation as a note with a link to it. If you have any questions, please ask away.
Half-Way Point ReminderOkay, it's actually a bit past the halfway point for accepting entries, but it's close.Half-Way Point Reminder in Personal More Like This
We've got some great entries so far, and with only 10 more days until voting starts on the 25th, I wanted to remind everyone.
Entries must be in by August 25th.
Entries must be built out of actual Lego bricks, not in LDD. (sorry)
The subject is 'Sci Fi Vehicles'.
Submit your entries to the Club in the form of a note with a link to the Deviation. The note should say "Contest Entry" or some such in the subject line.
Please don't submit your contest entry to the Club's gallery, at least until after the contest finishes. It spoils the surprise.
As always, have fun!

April Buinding Contests!Time to kick off the building contests for this month! Hopefully we'll have more entries this time than last month. We've got some interesting subjects to work on, but not a lot of time to work in due to delays and such. So no more waiting, let's get building!April Buinding Contests! in Personal More Like This
First up, the main contest, as chosen by :icontaggerung1: !

1: The entry must follow all of the LegoFanClub's standing rules, which can be found on our main page.
2: The entry must be something new, something you've built for this contest.

At the end of the last contest, we came to a little decision to change the rules a tad, in order to hopefully increase the number of entries and generally just make things easier.

A lot of people had other great ideas too, so I'm going to hang onto those for future contests.
So, movie scenes! Everybody's seen a good movie or two, and even if they haven't, there are some scenes you just have to know anyway. If all else fails, The Wizard of Oz. So, everyone should be able to take part in this. First, let's set some important rules. The rules in blue apply to all contests, and the rules in red apply to this contest in particular.

Robert Evans (PSAS), a longtime member of the deviantART community, has succeeded in making a radical artistic statement about turning artists' visions into actual realities.
Robert's pathway to actualization of his vision was facilitated by forward-thinking executives at Lexus who reached out to the creative cutting edge, to deviantART artists, for new revolutionary design ideas for the production of their 2014 Lexus IS. The Lexus IS Design Contest was born and dA's Robert Evans has come away with the prize: experiencing having his personal artistic conceptualization of how an automobile should look and roll become a real world reality. As Grand Prize Winner, the new Lexus built to Robert's design was debuted at the SEMA auto show in Las Vegas before 60,000 US and international buyers and then featured at the Los Angeles Auto Show before 12,000 industry decision-makers and 4,000 media correspondents from 50 countries.

On the topic of purismRahiden reporting for duty.On the topic of purism in Personal More Like This
A purist, in the MOCing community, is someone who does not modify his pieces in any way, be it with painting, cutting or using external components such as cloths or string. The purist essentially uses pieces exactly as they are provided by Lego.
Naturally, the topic of purism is a difficult one for us BML admins; much like the BML Standard, it's a question that has no definitive answer. And so, we’d like to ask for your input on the matter, with some discussion (and shameless self-advertising) from the four of us as well.
Letters in bold indicate that I’m paraphrasing one of the admins, i.e Shorjok, Alex-Darkrai, 3rdeye88 and, of course, Rahiden.

Anyway, we've found that a lot of potential MOCers come to us in search of advice for improvement (so long as they don't storm off in a fit of rage, that is). There might also be the chance that there are people who want help, but aren't willing to openly ask for it. We've always known that it's hard to describe what exactly makes 'a good MOC', so, with contributions from the other admins, I've done my best to make a list of factors which we find important.

The BionicleMOCers'League is not going to lower its admission standard.
As always, there are people whose MOCs get turned away due to them not meeting our quality requirements, and inevitably a lot of these people will be disappointed. Angry, in fact. Each time we give them the same message: that this group was founded to filter out those MOCs which are deemed 'bad', and that if it were any different, it would simply join the growing crowd of we-accept-anything groups.

You are in a shop. There is something that you want to buy, but you don't have enough money for it; the guy behind the counter isn't going to give you a discount due to company policy. Of course, you can cry, beg and fling insults at him, but nothing will be achieved. You now have three options:

Two other Zombie monsters have been released known as Blue-Blooded Oni and Red-Headed Oni, who support Zombies using Xyz monsters. With Fran Ken, Zombies now have their first Xyz monster, a powerful beater with a perfectly fine effect on his own, but with the Oni he can be used to swarm the field. Zombies currently have another ace that counters Inzektor and Dino Rabbit, Zombie World. Thanks to Zombie World, their Xyz's are majorly restricted. With Shutendoji and Mezuki, Zombies already had amazing draw and revival power, and with Pain Painter and Plaguespreader Zombie they had amazing Synchro power.
