Badger, Mole, Ratty and Mr. Toad are back… but they’re joined by Alice, Frankenstein’s Monster, Mowgli, The White Rabbit, Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny as they defend the world from the Wicked Witch of the West, Doctor Moreau, the Mad Hatter, Mister Hyde and the Queen of Hearts (not to mention the flying nightmare monkeys from Wizard of Oz.)

Right brain warriors in the new age will be the coveted candidates ordained to lead and guide us; lifting the torch to light the way forward into a brave new beautiful world.
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.

It was overheating in one this spot and even though it was spinning, (which meant that it was thinking about loading up Windows) after a moment it would make this metallic click! then shut down without doing anything else. That was why he'd said that he couldn't do anything, because he didn't do data recovery in those kinds of circumstances. But because of what I'd said I'd wanted to retrieve, he felt kind of bad for me.

Looking out at the birds. He makes me laugh because he sleeps on his back with his legs all splayed out, and he snores and farts something shocking. Sometimes he farts so loud that it wakes him up. AND he looks around for someone to blame it on. But when I woke up this morning, I looked out and saw him sleeping on his bed and thought, fuck it. I'll let him in when he wakes up.

Tropes Vs Women: Damsel in Distress Part 3Today marks the 3rd installment of Anita Sarkeesian's "Tropes vs Women in Gaming" series about the Damsel in Distress trope. This time the topic is about approaching the flip side of the coin, games where there is a female protagonist in charge, and why they either fail or aren't enough to combat the reoccurrence of the "kidnap princess" gameplay mechanic.Tropes Vs Women: Damsel in Distress Part 3 in Personal More Like This

All of this is basic gameplay creation 101 stuff, things anyone just starting to make games in the industry should be learning or trying to achieve, and the fact that more people AREN'T trying to fix things is part of the reason why Anita even needs to make videos like this in

So, like many, I think the Nintendo 2DS is pretty stupid. But where others go on to criticize Nintendo and screaming bloody murder, I chose to just let it slide because the Nintendo 2DS isn't meant for me so I don't really care one way or the other.
See this is the problem I see with people who bitch and moan about Nintendo. They treat every single announcement like it somehow personally affects them, when usually it's an OPTIONAL thing they don't have to even deal with. Remember during the casual vs hardcore wars of the Wii era and people decrying Nintendo for adding the option to let Luigi play a level of NSMBWii if you failed too many times? Brilliant idea that ensures that players that work at it succeed and never see the option, and players that are duly frustrated after dying X number of times are allowed to still proceed but at a cost. But nope, that announcement was treated a

In Japan, the 3DS's streetpass feature seems like a no-brainer. It's a small tightly packed group of people who bring their games with them for their public commutes. But in the west... we're much more individualistic and rely less on public transport. As such, streetpass only ever really works if you attend conventions. Nintendo recognizes this as a problem and is hoping to change that.
Participating stores around the country will feature a sort of "relay streetpass cache." Anyone who visits one of these stores with a 3DS in their pocket will automatically get their streetpass info uploaded to a network. Anyone else who visits the store later in the day will download the stored up streetpasses. So you no longer need to have visited at the same time in order to benefit from the streetpass feature! Nice! Some of the locations include select McDonald's and Starbucks stores.
That really gives me more incentive to bring my 3DS with me p

But then when Nintendo unveiled the Wii Fit personal trainer as a playable character? F**k Yeah! Bludgeon your opponents to death with YOGA moves? That's the sort of nonsensical whimsy that I think was sorely lacking from this version of franchise. Count me in!
Still not sure how the 3DS and Wii U version are going to interact with each other, if at all. Iwata has said that the 3DS will have different stages, so that suggests that they aren't compatible. But then, if they're not compatible, why put out 2 games at once? Frankly, I like the idea of being able to play against Wii U opponents from the comfort of my 3DS. That would be really cool, but I don't know if that's a thing they're looking to do or not. Hmm..

Say what you will about Anita Sarkeesian, you gotta admit that people do take note of what she says for good or ill. In this piece of news, it's for the good.
As you might already know, in her latest video she outlined a simple "damsel frees herself" video game. Nothing too spectacular but it showcased how one can subvert the typical trope and make a strong female character out of it. While many were quick to criticize her for not making the game herself (given her kickstarter success), others took a more direct approach and actually made a game in 2 weeks.
The game is called "Sorry Mario Bros," and the plot is that Princess Peach decides to rescues herself by leaving Bowser's castle in world 8-4. You progress right to left through familiar, but slightly altered, original Mario Bros. worlds working your way backwards towards world 1-1. Along the way you can take detours and use Peach's float ability to reach hidden areas and collect "princess coins."

Polygones = Emotion
I'm sure you've all seen the jokes, but this one stems from David Cage, who gushed over the tech demo of an old man's face for the PS4, remarking about how the only way to get "true" emotion is by bridging the uncanny valley with high resolution models, hi-def textures, and realistic shaders. "True emotion" of course can't be found in books, TV, or cartoons because none of those things can depict the exquisite details of a wrinkled face in true HD glory. I'm sorry to say this, David Cage, but if I can get an emotional response out of 16-bit pixel sprites from Chrono Trigger, or a pictureless book... your logic is faulty.

This evening, I returned to into the City to fill out the reports about my first tour out into the Dead Zone.
Hopefully, they won't suddenly shut down the D.Z.T.R. Department and there will be more tours for me to "guide".
Today... was different.
A buzzing, hovering Hunter-Drone met me in the Airlock.
Must be a new thing.
Ah I see,
As I'm forever unable to access ANNET, someone up top must have programmed this contraption to follow me around, shouting things at me.
Thank you, whoever you are.
I never felt more ridiculous.

I felt a cold pull at my stomach. Something else was coming, re-awakened by the presence of Captain.
Something worse than the shuffling noises of the red beasts outside. The sound of falling cannonball.
Whatever that fleshy monstrosity was, it cared not for me, but it's presence here led ANNIE straight to me.
...And it came to pass on the morrow, that the goddess in the machine came upon me and she wanted vengeance.
She was online, the thermonuclear bombardment of the core databank cube had failed to shut her down.
She was still alive, after all these years.
The explosive crash-landing of the hunter machine through the old roof drew THEIR attention.
I was now between two wild beasts, out for my blood.
What was Protocol 1-1-3?
Memories of Directorate weapon codes lingered in my mind, poisoning my thought pattern.
Could it be?

Back from RysolationDear Ryceballs. I have returned. It was a short hiatus, but it was a necessary one. I traveled miles and miles on foot into the Indian Desert by myself, in hope that I would be able to find my missing soul, cos thats what people do when they wanna find their soul right? They always go to India. I called it my 'rysolation period'. So I was out soul searching. On my journey, people has been encouraging to me, giving me kind words and needed motivational speeches, I thank you, you know who you are. I think I am more collected and positive now. Yeah I think I am back. Oh also on my soul search I have had time to work out some 'things'. So yeah look forward to more 'things' from me in the future.

This is a picture of me when I was playing the N64 back in the day. So why do I wanna talk about the 64 out of all the consoles? Well mostly because I have been trashing Nintendo so much lately about their decisions in the gaming industry that I thought I should talk about something more positive about Nintendo when they were at their prime. ALSO because I have so many good memories with this console! Without further ado, THIS is how it all began.. it started with my dad coming home from work one day and showing me a newspaper article with a competition on it, it was sponsored by Toyota and i

Then sometimes there are movies that I wanted to watch but no one around me wants to see it or has already seen it, so what you gota do? Just go to the movies by yourself! Its not that bad really, there's always a believe that its lonely to go to the movies by yourself, they say going to the movies should be done with friends or family or your boyfriend or girlfriend or llama. NO! Its perfectly fine to go to the movies by yourself, I mean you can take in every bit of the movie without any interruptions, then after the movie you won't feel the need to immediately give it a score and talk about it with your friend, I like to take an hour after theThe Joy and Sorrow of going to the movies Alone in Personal More Like This
Alleyway IncidentHiya Ryceballs. I left out something on my previous journal, something I kinda wanted to talk about but was a bit scared to... But I have decided that maybe its better to get it off my chest. This is a true story and it happened two weeks ago while I was in Melbourne for Armageddon Expo, it was a sunday night, I had a long day selling artworks and I was back in the hotel room chilling, at around 10pm I got hungry and realised I don't have much to eat, I didn't wanna call room service because I wasn't sure if food is still available that late. So knowing the 24/7 grocery store is just a block away, I decided to head out to buy a cup noodle or something. It was pretty dark outside with a bit of rain as well, much to my annoyance, but I was really really hungry. Now the proper way to get to the grocery store is to walk around the block, OR I can take a shortcut and go through the alleyway.... I tend to always walk around the block as I didn't wanna get mugged, if Batman has taught me anytAlleyway Incident in Personal More Like This

I might as well begin with an apology for a journal I posted half a year ago back in December 2012 about the misleading fun and joy I had with the Wii U. I say misleading because at the time yes I was having lots of fun with games like New Super Mario Brothers Wii U and Scribblenauts Unlimited and Nintendoland. And sure! They were great fun, I mean those are games that I have finished already (after like a month, cos its so freakin easy!

Its mid May 2013 and there hasn't been any new games that ain't either cross platform or ones I ain't interested in. And trust me if the Wii U game is cross platform I would definately get the PS3 or 360 version because 1) The controller's more comf

at the moment i am very paranoid. and it is because of what certain people have been saying to me, they have not been helpful or encouraging. so when i actually go and meet her parents and they don't prosecute me and it is just a fun meeting i thought it would be before all this crap was sprung on me, well i am going to love that. and i wish i could go back to just being excited but i can't...i really hope that changes...i really do.
so this was basically the first roadbum
16very sorry i didn't post this sooner i had a horrible day yesterday...and not only am i not getting any support from my family but they are constantly telling me that something is "fishy" and it could be a set up and i have a high chance of getting arrested. so you can imagine why i am not very comfortable at the moment.....wow this series is a fuckin adventure heh...16 in Personal More Like This
i am still going to do this series as long as the trip isn't put off...
now something else i will love about the trip #5: i'll meet her parents
ok so this at the same time terrifies me...i mean especially if they do hate me and have me arrested i am sure i won't be so happy but...if it goes well then i will be happy i was able to meet them. and i'm gonna admit i did google them and find whatever i could >w> just a little healthy stalking...but no really i want to know what to expect so i did do background research in case i might find it helpful. it calmed me down quite a bit because it only confirmed what i kne
17so i suppose this is part of growing up...by that i mean putting up with the crap people have to say about my relationship when it doesn't even involve them.....>w>; haters gonna hate right? it is obnoxious i can't go one day without hearing how "wierd" or "creepy" or "uncomfortable" the age difference is but yk...this has nothing to do with them so fug that shit i wanna be happy and i won't be happy by hiding because they have to open their mouthes and cut me down like that. i haven't broken any laws so those people can kindly shove their opinions up their buttholes X"D17 in Personal More Like This
so another reason i am going to love this trip!!
reason four: it is a mark of my independence
true i have to have my dad drive me to the airport and pick me up but i am going to pay him for gas and i paid for my plane ticket and my hotel room myself. i was the one who got the hotel for myself and Fur3ver and her family to book at so we are all at the same place. and to top this off, i will still have enough
18as each day goes by i get more excited *u* i'm still not terribly sure what we will do there but hey, it's a city neither of us have ever been to so we are bound to find something whilst exploring the place~ and now for another reason i will love this trip.18 in Personal More Like This
reason three: to watch horror with Fur3ver
i seriously plan to get netflix on my laptop before i go so we can watch some scary films ;w; "Grave Encounters" being the top one as she has said that it "wigs her out" every time her parents watch it. i am mostly interested in seeing her reactions to it X"D that and i have honestly never seen that before and i love horror/suspense. so generally i like to watch movies like that to see if they are any good. it is true i could watch stuff with her just over the internet, as in we play it at the same time while we are talking on skype but this way i have someone to snuggle with while i watch the movie X"D though horror rarely scares me tbh. i hope that "Grave Encounters" freaks me out though
19goodness only 19 days to go!! the butterflies are mating in my stomach i swear...there are utter multitudes of them now. Fluttering around....messing up my breathing....<3 in any case i will continue on with the same template i provided in the 20 journal i posted around 24 hours ago X"D so first up is another thing i am going to love about trip.19 in Personal More Like This
reason two: this will be the first time i have actually travelled
seriously i have never been on a plane before or gone too far from home. it is true that i have lived in Manitoba, Alberta and B.C (for a short while) and of course now Saskatchewan. Though that wasn't actually really traveling as in going on a holiday of any sort. basically i just moved around a lot because of divorced parents...you know the drill. and so this trip will be the first real traveling i have ever done. True i am not leaving the country but i am going in a plane which is a first, i am going all by myself to Vancouver and i'm going to get to see the ocean which is
20so you might be wondering what the 20 is about...well in 20 days i am going to fly to Vancouver to meet the wonderful :iconFur3ver: and it has been exactly 302 days...will be 303 once this day is over, that we have been dating. ^^ sadly it has all been but online thus far so you can imagine why i am so happy i finally get to meet her in person!!! just add a thousand hearts here and that is my feelings hehe. so i vow, to every day of this count down, to post a journal with the number of days left until the 24th. and in each one i will tell you one thing about this trip that i love. with this there will be 20 facts ^^ now obviously i love that i get to meet Fur3ver...duh...so i will give you other facts you might find more insightful and interesting~ and it will just be fun to write hehe~ oh and i also plan to link you to one old skype chat i posted that both of us are in. it's nostalgia for me to read these ^^ and you might find them funny~ so here we go!20 in Personal More Like This
so reason one: it forces
13 and now 12this has been getting exceedingly more frustrating as the days go by. i just want this trip to happen and to go well though the annoying part of my brain tells me i am asking too much i know i am not. again the trip is not canceled and i have plans to talk to Fur3ver's mom so i really want to see how that goes before deciding further. i still want to go with every drop of my soul. and thus i am doing this countdown still.13 and now 12 in Personal More Like This
what i will love #8 and #9
for one i will love just...the act of planning you know? being able to talk about the fun things we can do in a city none of us have ever been. i will put up with whatever crap i have to so long as i know her mom is cool with this and wants to help. i never want to receive help...i hate feeling like a moocher. but i mean, just getting to talk to her mom before i even go will calm me. i have gotten so paranoid over things i shouldn't really be since i know i didn't break any laws. so i think the planning will calm me down and just be a nice c
Speckles the Tarbosaurus^ the title of the film i just watched.Speckles the Tarbosaurus in Personal More Like This
I really like watched films done by lesser known companies that may not get a release across seas, hope this one does though and I highly suggest giving it a watch if you like dinosaurs!
Though the narration is very corny , once you get used to it you can enjoy the story and oh boy does this film like tragedy, I cried twice watching this XD
its a korean film but the narration is in English , hopefully they will release it here in the UK and the US though i have mixed hopes since a few foreign films I've watched still 5 years down the line have not made an appearance :/
anyway not only is this film well animated (loved the animation actually) it also includes a lot of the lesser known dinosaurs including therizinosaurus
anyway here is the link if anyone's interested
serkan ridgeSo serkan ridge will still be uploaded hereserkan ridge in Personal More Like This
and on another note for our final project in college we are given free choice and comic was suggested so i have decided I will be using serkan ridge for that which means a printed version of volume one should be available before this year is done.
with that I really need to judge the contest entries
now I have a few favorites but since this wont be started for a while last minute entries can be made (out of the entries all ready received I have narrowed it down to three)
obviously this is a big deal so it hasn't been rushed
so if you want to enter last minute here is how it goes:
create a video on youtube celebrating serkan ridge
you can make it an AMV you can animate it yourself or you can use images from the comic or my serkan ridge animations on youtube
the prize for this also hasn't changed the winner will have there 2 original characters featured as victims in the prequel pages of the first issue (this means your character will die thoug

So Commissions as suggested a few weeks ago are now open:

without shading and background (flat colours):

I spent the night and Db's (known on here as: thebondagegoat ,for those of you that don't know)
And flamey came too, we had our artist tables set up outside but we got them brought into the library when it started raining.
Luckily enough I did manage to sell a few prints and key rings and that does make me very happy to think some people thought my artwork good enough to pay for! So if any of you are reading this, thank you ever so much!
Though I think my shyness may have stopped me getting a few sales (heck when I got stolen by homestuckers flamey managed to sell some of my prints for me, she was the best at selling stuff )

Got Blood Taken TodaayFun right?Got Blood Taken Todaay in Personal More Like This
Yeah I refused to look and made sure I didn't even see the needle - even if it was in my arm or not. The rubber band thing they tied on my upper arm hurt like crap though D: More so than the needle, which only really hurt the first couple seconds when she put it in.
I was shaking a bit OTL I don't know exactly why. It might've been because I can't stay still so long xD
According to my mom, they took like six viles (or whatever they are ) full of my blood.
Afterwords, my arm felt.. dead OTL I couldn't even clench my fist on that hand, nor lift things. It just felt heavy and I did things lefty for awhile lolol (tried drawing, it made my whole style different! O.O with my left hand)
Totally ripped the bandaid off as soon as I got home though. I hate bandaids..
So yep My arm still feels awkward and I feel tired, but after eating it feels a bit better than before.
Oh yeah and apparently my mom thinks I might need a therapist sometime in the future because of my so
Why must there be painEdit: Ugh fml D': We ran the mile /today/ in gym.. I am limping/walking improperly so bad.. My palms are bruised from writing/drawing too much, my shoulders and back still hurt. and, obviously, my hips and legs are killling me and have been all day. Even before the mile 'run'. My teacher was convinced I could do it... He said to just speed walk.. I mostly walked at a medium pace because my aching prevented me from walking faster. Occasionally if I got the energy I'd sprint/jog for a few seconds but couldn't go much further... During the second lap, I felt my throat closing up, and I completely panicked. It was terrifying. It was probably the closest I've been to an asthma attack.. I had to stare out into the field so people passing by wouldn't see me struggling not to cry.. It was like, 50 degrees out and I was in a t-shirt, so to add to that I was freezing. It was windy and with all the exercise I had to breathe through my mouth, which dried my lungs and made it hurt so bad toWhy must there be pain in Personal More Like This

Important Announcement about dA!"On January 18th, Deviantart will be closed for 12 hours.Important Announcement about dA! in Personal More Like This
It is one of many websites doing this.
This is to protest the SOPA Bill.
Just letting you know beforehand. Feel free to forward this journal to any people as you want so they know what is going on.
And also this bit as well:
The effect that the SOPA bill could have on the United States and several websites that could be chosen to be blocked is universal.
The Senate is scheduled to vote on the internet censorship bill on Tuesday the 24th, and unless we can find 41 senators to block the vote, it is going to pass. What AmericanCensorship-dot-org is now demanding is for American users to meet with local senators during the January recess and ask them to vote it down.
Spread the word and maybe consult with your local senator alongside possibly thousands of others.
If this is true, save everything into your hard drives, be it drawings or written stories/poetry, your photos and other things that are on your dA Galleries before the 'bla
Happy World Rat Day!Happy World Rat Day! in Personal More Like This
"April 4, 2012 will mark the tenth celebration of World Rat Day, a holiday designed to recognize the fancy rat as a wonderful pet and companion animal for people of all ages. Sometime in 2002 on the ratlist, the longest standing mailing list on the internet dedicated to the topic of the pet rat, a discussion was sparked about the possibility of initiating a holiday to honor and promote pet rats as the wonderful companion animals they are.
All true fans of the pet rat know that these dear, sweet animals deserve greater recognition and admiration, and that their image suffers from ignorance and unthinking prejudice. World Rat Day can be a day to win back some respect to rats through positive promotion, or at the very least, it will be a special day to offer delicious treats and fun gifts to our pets, making some rats very happy and getting some cute photographs in the proces s!"
As many of you
GeocachingToday was amazing 8DGeocaching in Personal More Like This
I went Geocaching ( http://www.geocaching.com/ ) today with my sister, her boyfriend Aj and her other friend Mikey.
It took us almost an hour to find the first cache. It was really deep in the forest by a river and a beautiful waterfall. That cliff was like.. 90 feet up, I swear. Looking over the edge was amazing. Climbed up steep hills, slippery rocks, mud and dirt. Today was just great. ;D We also found another one in a different location and I got a bouncy ball
I highly suggest geocaching.. it's awesome. And there are caches everywhere.
Afterwards we went to CiCi's and I'm still completely full and feel like I'm going to explode OTL That place is evill.
