The Capture vs. The Pose
portrait of a WW2 vet...
When a subject poses to have his or her photograph taken, the subject tries to project a message about himself or
herself by how he or she “poses”, by the attitude of his or her body language or facial expression.
If the subject is posed by the photographer, the body pulled and prodded into the desired angles,
the facial expression “directed”, it is the photographer who is intending to communicate a message.
In either case, posing or posed, there is undeniably something “false” in the representation.

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

Guy Fawkes Day
Burns one man's vendetta on fires of drunk delight while Heaven's rainbows burn and sparkle in the sky.
The fascinated coo while boredom freezes cold and watches while his breath fades steaming into night.
The pennies for the guy jingle in their tin while he a traitor burns, his Cath'lic soul in Hell.
The animals run scared, not from fireworks, but from th'unholy sound of Guido's punishment.
He screams a silent scream that no-one else can hear, save God and pets and Satan's wailing hordes.
“A desperate disease requires a dangerous remedy.”

Midnight in Anaheim. Caffeinated casters boom rapid fire commentary rattling the packed hall. Elite Starcraft players from around the globe execute complex strats that would have made Rommel the Desert Fox himself proud. 20,000 are in attendance, on the edge of their seats, and cheering as loudly as any soccer match as they watch the 30-foot screens hanging from the rafters.

Lemme go full nerd and tell you some stuff (new)About my OCs, of course. Just some random shit that I thought you all might find interesting but I don't know where else to put.Lemme go full nerd and tell you some stuff (new) in Personal More Like This
1. My OCs are based on various Greek Myths. Such as Irene being Aphrodite, Aslan being Heruclese (heck, he's even named after the Nemean Lion), and Benoit after Narcissus (he's actually sort of a mix or Narcissus and Eros). I have some art of this..somewhere.
2. Aslan's name means lion- he also drinks this stuff called Arak, which in Turkey and other places is nicknamed "The Milk of Lions"
3. In his original design, Benoit used to be more heavily built, shorter, had a goatee with slicked-back hair, and was Italian. His name was also Lorenzo. (Hi Kit if you're reading this, I borrowed him)
4. Aslan's eyes used to be hazel until he had a run-in with a djinni and was cursed. It is unknown whether or not he has any magical properties such as the werewolf demoman or zombie skins in canonical TF2 verse.
5. Do not ask Aslan if he grants wishes. He does not like it.

For those who don't know about this, pretty much since the begging on 2014, there have been announcements for Minecraft conventions that supposed to be started by fans BUT were hosted/ paid for by sponsors. The first 3 scames were the imfamous and the first scam, Meeting of the Mines, which was hosted is Florida. Then the second was a convention by the same name but in New York which was debunked. Then there was one in Australia called Mineapalooza, however all the money they took was all given back. Now this new one, is MineOrama in NYC.
Now this one is a big one cause it was only found out to be a scam after it was cancelled last night........ 5 DAYS BEFORE THE CONVENTION WAS SUPPOSED TO START. This scam was one of the worst one, because there was no indication at all it was a scam until when the cancelled it, they started giving out false/ i

Now, I haven't seen it online yet but it's plot has already been posted on some websites.DBZ Battle of Gods update in Personal More Like This
Since I don't want to give spoilers, I won't tell you too much about the movie or how it ends. I will, however, tell you this - the movie is a very serious sequel hook. When this movie was originally announced, most people thought it will be the final DBZ movie. That doesn't seem to be true at all, since this movie literally expands the DBZ universe. Also (and this is something that really surprised me) the movie is CANON. It's not like most of the other DBZ movies which are made just for fun or to show some alternate scenarios and whatnot. "Dragon ball Z - Battle of Gods" is canon to the "Dragonball" manga.

New DBZ infoSo, I've been browsing Youtube recently and came across several clips where people are talking all excited about latest DBZ information. Needless to say, I decided to research deeper into it. As it turns out, there was a new interview with Akira Toriyama, the creator of the "Dragonball" manga. People seem to be giving this interview a little too much credit though. They're basically treating it like it's complete indisputable proof of a new DBZ movie and continuation of the franchise. Calm down, people. This is just your casual interview which provides us with new DBZ info and POSSIBLE plans for the future.New DBZ info in Personal More Like This
Here is the actual interview: http://www.kanzenshuu.com/translations/episode-bardock-akira-toriyama-super-qa/
Now let's talk about it. There are three things that are talked about in this interview that I found most interesting:
1) Goku's mother,
2) Freeza's race,
3) Vegeta's possible role in the future.
1) Goku's mother. After constantly focusing on the male members of h
DBZ - Battle of GodsHello, everyone. Time for an update, so I decided to talk about something that has caught my attention recently. There is a new DBZ anime movie coming out next year (March the 30th to be exact) called "Battle of Gods".DBZ - Battle of Gods in Personal More Like This
The antagonist in the movie if an unbelievably powerful, terrifying, awesomely badass Egyptian Rabbit!!!!
Well, okay, he's not an Egyptian rabbit, he's apparently a cat-like being, or a Chihuahua, or possibly a type of jackal, since people have assumed he's based of Anubis, the Egyptian God of the Underworld. It's just that, when I watched the Youtube clips, people have said how he looks like an "Egyptian Rabbit" so I had to make a joke out of it. Let's be honest, he does look like that in the poster, doesn't he?
The title of the movie is certainly awesome, but will the movie itself be? Considering we have hardly any info on it, we can't be sure, so let's share what we know (don't worry, these aren't spoilers, just plot summary that was revealed so far):

Several interesting things I'd like to point out:
1) Heinkel is a confirmed female in the English Dub of the OVA (though I am not too crazy about her and Yumie's voices).
2) Seras speaks with a kind of echoey double voice after absorbing Pip.
3) Seras's "How does it feel to have someone fuck with your head? HOW DOES IT FEEL, YOU BITCH!?" to Zorin was awesome.
4) Traitor and coward he may be, but Maxwell's deep voice combined with the effects of the microphones really makes him sound threatening. (too bad his laughter kind of ruins the effect)
5) Alucard speaks with a Romanian accent in his Vladcard form.
6) Alucard's "A nail?" line caused a completely different effect on me than it should h

Well, it's finally that time. Time to give my full review of the new DBZ movie "Battle of Gods". This journal will contain spoilers, so if you haven't seen the movie yet, here it is English subbed:
Okay, let's get down to it. After this movie got released and many people saw it, the opinions were EXTREMELY mixed. Some people consider it the best DBZ movie made so far, and some people consider it the worst DBZ movie made so far. I've watched it and all I can say is...... "yes" to both sides. No, I'm not kidding. I can see where both sides are coming from and I can accept their arguments. I'll give my thoughts on different elements of the movie and explain what I consider the good, the bad and the "interesting" (as in "inbetween").

Also, I wanted to remind everyone there are two more weeks left until the end of the "Oblivion" contest. Not trying to put pressure on you, but I would kinda like for my first art contest to have more than one entry (though it will make the process of deciding the winner extremely easy).
Good luck everyone!
Based on the results of my most recent poll, it seems there IS enough people interested for an "Oblivion" related contest. So, I decided not to wait any longer before starting it.
As you know, I've done some small art-related contests in the past where you have to guess a certain thing about a picture I drew and you win a prize. But, this is my first "classic" contest, where the contestants submit their artwork.

Coming OutIt's true, I am Chinese and I was born this way.Coming Out in Personal More Like This
At a young age I began to notice this difference. I was attracted to neither boys nor girls. In middle school, I liked math, and in college, I did my homework all night long.
Being Chinese is not a choice, it is genetic. There are risks to being Chinese because society cannot accept the union between a human and a textbook. I have Chinese friends who didn't need sex because they could foreplay instruments and get screwed by O Chem instead. Now, they don't have a social life and are shunned by others.
But fear not, life will get better. I grew up as a Chinese and I am proud of it (just look at my tumblr user name Maid-en-China ). There is the LGBTC (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Chinese) community to help you be comfortable with your Chinese orientation.
1,338,299,512 people came out as Chinese. You are not alone.

My deepest apologies for not having 1000 Words for Fanime.

There was one specific case where a guy wanted to use my drawing as a book cover but didn't want to pay. He said he might print up to 50,000 books, so that's like an amazing offer of 50,000 views for me right? Wrong. 50,000 is nothing. We live in the information revolution.

My last visit in 2009 left me a bit traumatized but I think I'm okay now. My stepmother and half brother in China had tried to kill me with a kitchen knife. I was shaking and crying when I escaped in a taxi that night. After that event, I couldn't feel safe anymore. I changed my flight to return to the US sooner, and never wanted to go back again.
But that's in the past now. I miss my grandparents and other relatives. I miss the food, the cicadas, the unique mountainscape of Sichuan, and ever dwindling bits of the old city that's quickly being replaced by skyscrapers.
I'm looking forward to seeing how much China has changed. Though I'm not looking forward to breathing that air. Air pollution is such a constant health hazard that I had to buy hundreds of dollars worth of respirators for me and my grandparents. I will also be buying air purifiers (that's another five hundred dollars

Emergency Scan and Thank You AllEmergency Scan and Thank You All in Personal More Like This
About a day ago... or two. I'm not exactly sure now because I was really out to things on painkillers...
Well I had to be taken to a private emergency clinic to have a scan. I keep forgetting the name for it...
But basically I was overcome by excruciating pain, and they had to check if anything had gone wrong with the procedure.
Thankfully they didn't find anything, but I had to be kept on powerful painkillers.
Now the pain has lessened by a lot and I feel considerably better.
I also got so many well wishes and get better messages that I don't think I can possibly thank you all individually.
I really appreciated them all.
