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.

There was an endless buzz in my ears of massive shell-shock.
Crunching noise of the ground.
For a brief second I saw tiny mushrooms and flowers under me, but they quickly disintegrated into dust.
Impossible. Shock-Hallucinations. I haven't seen grass in so many years.
Crawl forward. Away. Away from the heat.

I looked at it hatefully.
"This is all your fault!"
I attempted to throw the mug at the Arbitrator, to smash it, to let go of it.
Nothing of the sort was possible.
I flailed left and right. The mug did not budge. I could not let it go, no matter how hard I tried. It was as if it were glued to me with a strange static-like substance. It rolled between my fingers and from one hand to the other, but it was as if I were made of iron and the mug were a powerful rare-earth magnetic bearing coated with oil.
Why can't I let go of the mug?!
Did the Arbitrator's reconstruction of my organs have anything to do with this?
Upon giving up to prying the mug out of my hands, I turned to the Arbitrator and spoke.
I made my case calmly and clearly, pressuring various facts that my DNA couldn't possibly be on the mug and that I looked nothing like Captain and that it might as well scan my memories for evidence or something of that sort.

My personal online psychiatrist is making me narrate this nonsense down on the chip embedded in my tooth in hopes that someday I may be cured of my "incompatibility" with ANNET, or at least possibly reduce the "mild psychosis caused by work-related stress" as she calls it.
I know that it's not going to happen. The problem is something genetic and while those goons in the genetics department would love to get their machines into my brain, I prefer the lack of sleep and headaches to lobotomy.

For several months of torture, the Directorate kept me in their offices, making me file paperwork on their "test subjects", all while I kept sending applications to the "Dead Zone tourism" branch, to get away from towering cubes of the Directorate, away from cities and transmitter towers that were slowly frying my brain.
Centuries of industrial pollution were inevitably changing the biosphere of our world and the Directorate knew it better than anyone, yet they did nothing to stop it, profit had to be maximized, production had to be increased, customers had to be satisfied. Holes in the ozone layer, irreversible changes in the atmosphere, radioactive fallout, wild-life mutations, the days growing darker and the sky turning black - none of this mattered to them.
These changes must have been so gradual that no single generation was able to protest it.

I've got to come up with a better system for telling what day it is. Maybe I could scrawl numbers on the back of my shoe? Nah, that sounds like something silly that Pilot would do.
I'm currently carrying a calendar that says 2012 on it, but I am pretty sure that these days aren't correct anyway to our year and Captain keeps scribbling things in the margins whenever I get distracted enough for the calendar to be snatched out of my hands. I found the calendar more or less intact and it's kinda impressive that it lasted from way back in 2012. It must have held some sort of personal importance to it's owner to seal it away in a plastic container with words "the Mayans were wrong, trust no-one!"
I've been trying to keep track of how old I am, but I keep forgetting to check off every day in the calendar or maybe captain is messing off with me by erasing my checkmarks.

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

Sometimes in youth we play crazy mind games. One gruesome game was trying to think of the worst way to die. Or even better, the "which would you choose" version of the same conceit. Another was what would be the worst torture to endure. If there is one international touchstone that best captures youthful fears and wonders in speculation of what lies beyond the veil of death and awaits as possible punishment for our sins, it must be - to the few who have actually read it to the millions who "know" it – "Dante's Inferno." Who does not shiver at the thought of being lost somewhere in the "Nine Rings of Hell?"
Super 8 Movie ReviewI only recently got a chance to watch this film and I must say that I really enjoyed it. It's quite obvious from the second the logos begin that the movie is a huge tribute to both Stephen Spielberg and 1980's kiddy adventure films. This film has so much in common with movies like E.T., The Never Ending Story, and The Goonies. All of which are perfect pedigrees to draw source material from if you ask me.Super 8 Movie Review in Personal More Like This
( Spoilers )
The story centers around a group of hyperactive kids in 1979 trying to film a zombie movie. The kids witness a spectacularly over-the-top train crash and accidentally film the escape of a monster with their Super 8mm camera (hence the title). When strange things start happening in town, they have to try and figure out what happened before the U.S. Army intervenes. ( / Spoilers )
I don't know quite specifically what I enjoyed more about this movie... the very authentic look of the 1979 era, the rabble of crazy kids mixed up in a big adventure, the allusions to old fashioned

I've been working on retooling SYAC recently. I've also been experimenting with Illustrator too. I'm still learning and there's a lot to work on, but I think I'm getting close to reaching the point when I can relaunch SYAC again.
There are three basic rules I'm gonna try to follow with this new series.
1. Keep it cartoony.
2. No strawman arguments.
3. Focus on the characters and their interaction with each other.
Since the newer style requires more work, there will be fewer comics a week, so I don't know if I'll have a regular schedule yet. Also, please be patient with the first batch of comics. With all this experimentation and style reworking, it's likely the first batch will be a little "off" until I can work out a rhythm.
The new SYAC will focus on a group of people as they enter an Art College. Some characters will be returning (like Persistent Pam and Curmudgeonly Carl) but others (like myself) will be ditched entirely. The comic will be less about giving art advice a
Perception on the InternetYour average user on the internet can generally say whatever they want about an issue. It's alright to voice an opinion because no one is really going to track you down and attack you for having one (unless you're doing it in a really really public place like a forum or chat room). However, as I've become somewhat popular online, I've noticed a perception from people that I must maintain a neutral and unbiased outlook at all times on every issue.Perception on the Internet in Personal More Like This
Regardless of what that issue is I'm not generally free to express my opinion without first listing a whole bunch of qualifiers for "why" I feel this way, or by making it very clear that it's OK for you to disagree. You are not allowed to "sum up" an experience, and it's greatly discouraged for you to generalize. I've notice that this mentality has greatly affected my writing style as it forces me to tip toe very carefully around every issue I address.

My Minecraft Testificate InfestationIn Minecraft there are these squidward like villagers called Testificates. In a recent update they were given new abilities such as having babies to repopulating a town based on the number of houses there are. Since the requirement for a "house" is simply a room with a roof and a door, I decided to spend my time building a massive city for the Testificates to populate, using a generated village as a starting point.My Minecraft Testificate Infestation in Personal More Like This

I undertook a huge task of building a BIG open area underground with a couple doors and lights. Because the area was so big, the Testificates began to... um... OVER populate.
These little buggers reproduced the village so fast that I couldn't keep up and soon they were overflowing out of buildings. Mob attacks couldn't keep up with the rate they were repopulating, and the iron golems that kept spawning (for every 15 villager a new one spawns) made

Skyrim ReviewTwo or three years late but whatever! We can't all buy stuff day one, right? Anyway, if you've been following my journal entries as I've started playing Skyrim you can probably tell how this review is gonna go down.Skyrim Review in Personal More Like This
I hate complicated things, and Skyrim is a game with a deep and rich history that can be very difficult for newbies like me to get into. Right off the bat the game throws all sorts of names, races, powers, legends, lore, etc at you. Too much of that can be a big turn off (heck I know people who still haven't read Lord of the Rings because there were too many names), but luckily Skyrim does a good job of easing players into the game.
There is a main campaign you have to follow to technically "beat" the game, but you don't have to follow it. The moment I had a chance to break free of the story I did so and I went exploring. That allowed me, a new person unfamiliar with any of the lore of the Elder Scrolls series, to experience the world at my own pace. The world is so e

Late Lesson LearnedWhile doing research for the new SYAC, I actually stumbled upon something truthful on TVtropes.org. Usually I take everything from that site with a grain of salt, but this one bit actually was surprisingly honest and truthful about webcomics:Late Lesson Learned in Personal More Like This
Webcomics work on a very different set of standards than other fiction. Almost all webcomic authors are working pretty much entirely alone as they both draw and script their comics and most do not plan any further along than to the end of their current story sometimes not even that far.
Many of them try to adhere to a schedule they aren't really capable of meeting, resulting in them rushing to meet their deadline and making mistakes that should be avoidable. So many of the good 10% lack qualities standard in traditionally professional works. This can be because of the lack of editorial input as well as the lack of lead time. Not all webcomics suffer from this, though, and even the ones that do can still be interesting. Arguably, some str

So it started with me and my friends at NekoBaka-sama's house. We were sitting in a circle when she announced we would be playing a new new game. She pulled out guns and handed them to us. She pointed to the person next to her and said "The person to your left if your target, first one hit loses" and we all dashed off. I was fucking terrified, obviously, and hid behind a rock, where I was eventually hit regardless, so I went to the infirmary, but was hit AGAIN by some jerk along the way.
I eventually got there, but had to be hospitalized for two weeks. My nurse, as it turns out, was also also the prince of the land's flying instructor.

Summary of my yearI just wanted to write a big thank you journal. I've met so many awesome people this year! I love all my fabulous watchers. Life's been fabulous outside of DA, too, bien sur, so we'll get to the DA stuff at the end.Summary of my year in Personal More Like This
High school is awesome, I'm telling you. I'm finally not getting bullied, which is the best. My teachers have been great, especially my english teacher Mrs. Z. She is such a fantastic teacher. She loves her job and her students so much, and it really shows. It's hard not to love her. Not to mention she makes awesome cupcakes and has a great sense of humour.
As for friends, I most certainly have never had so many. Some are on DA, and are listed on my ID. They are the most dirty-minded group of girls you will ever come across and I love every second of being with them. They listen to my outlandish dreams, and even pick favorites. They also have awesome book recommendations. My job in the group seems to be recommending anime and having odd dreams.

I want this on DVD whyOn tumblrI want this on DVD why in Personal More Like This
looking at Monster stuffs
they only released the first fifteen episodes on DVD. Fifteen of 74. FFFF- Why, it would be so much easier to whore this show out to my friends.
I watched it two summers ago and it has stuck with my like glue. Naoki Urasawa's brilliant ploting, incredibly likeable protagonists and eerily realistic villains have helped me better grasp subtle character development as well as how to write effective plot twists.
Not to mention when I finished Monster I seriously just stared at a wall for an hour. Like, what do.
And it introduced me to Wolfgang Grimmer, a character introduced halfway through the series who I will always consider one of my top five favorite characters, I should think.
Man, guys, if I can get any one of you to watch this show, I will be happy. Or even to read Urasawa's manga, 20th century boys, because I love that too! Monster has always stuck with me more, though. Monster had a character named Friend though. A character named Friend WHO SC

Most don't know what I've gone through because I usually don't like to talk about it. I usually bury it deep........as some of my poems suggest. Cuz I start crying. I hate crying. SO much. Put on a smile and pretend to be alright. Be that bubbly person everyone knows and love. It had always been hard. NO angel in this skin, not a white one at least. I'm proud of who I am today. Not exactly about what I was before. But that's the past. And its supposed to be behind you...Right? Wrong. Mine always stabs me over and over. At random times too.

This LifeMy time is running out.This Life in Personal More Like This
And unfortunately, the world is not in my favor. Old habits that came so naturally now elude me. A pencil feels awkward in my hand. Images won't flow from my mind to the paper. Words won't paint stories like they used to. But I do have one ally:
In the embrace of darkness, I see. I see things that were, are, and may one day be. The darkness does not give me power, but it shows me the power I already possess. It has shown me that I have a voice, and sometimes I need to raise it and speak out. It's ok to be angry or loud. Just speak.
The moment I attempt to record all of my conversations with darkness, they'll be lost. Ink and lead will deny me. But there, in the darkness, I have power. Words come to me from places unknown, I speak without hesitation or doubt, I see stories play out in my head that I never knew existed. Some things aren't meant to exist in the light. Until the time is right, my words must remain in the silence of the night.

Or something like that XDGOTTA KNOW 'EM ALL! in Personal More Like This
So......last night, I sat down and learned the entire 4th gen pokedex in one sitting. Did the same thing with the 5th gen dex this afternoon. So now I know the names of every single Pokémon!!! Woot!!!! It made me very happy. Even thought it was scary...I didn't think I'd remember them so quickly but I literally sat down and plowed through them all and I can now name them all. It's not a short-term memory thing either because I tried renaming them all hours after I had studied them (or a day since the 4th gen names) and I still know them all. YAY!!

True Pokemon Fans are legit! Not Obnoxious!For any of us who are fans of anything (admit it. we've all got something), we like to have our fangirl/fanboy moments and rave on and on about our favorite characters or the amazing plotline or even just the sheer AWESOMENESS of it all and never give a decent explanation as to why it's even so cool. But it doesn't matter, because we are just spewing obsessiveness, right?True Pokemon Fans are legit! Not Obnoxious! in Personal More Like This
Well, there comes a point when we need to be real. Like, why do we actually love this game or show or movie or book or anime so much? To me, a TRUE fan is one who has a reason for their love and finds something deeper in the game/show/movie/etc. than just "awesomeness." And if there's any fan following that has amazing "true fans", it's Pokémon.
I mean, we all admit it's a kid's show. Some would even argue that the video games are pretty elementary. Yet there are still fans of Pokémon who are adults. Why? There's gotta be something deeper.
Aside from the childish dream we all have of mystical creatures with
Dreams, Contractors, and Other Fun ThingsI was looking at Darker than Black fanart last night and I thought this journal skin was frikkin epic, so I'm using it. For those who don't know, Darker than Black is an anime, and if you haven't seen it, WATCH IT DAMMIT. Pardon my French, I'm in an odd mood. But seriously, even if you're not into anime, give it a try. It's so amazing. It was the first anime series I ever watched (because let's face it, Pokémon doesn't count ) and this is a good and bad thing. It's good because I loved it and it's one of the main reasons I became so fascninated with anime. But this was also unfortunate because I've yet to discover another anime that's as good as this one. It has made my anime expecations much too highDreams, Contractors, and Other Fun Things in Personal More Like This

My Eating WoesIn which SoraIsMyHomeboy describes why she eats so much!My Eating Woes in Personal More Like This
I believe I've finally figured out why I eat more than I need to. I'm not a glutton, at least I like to believe I'm not. But see, here's the thing. When I embark on an eating quest, I have one of two mindsets: "I need to eat really healthily" or "I want to eat as much junk food as possible!!!"
If I have the first mindset, I select foods from various catergories, so my plate displays meat, fruit and/or veggies, and carbs. This alone is usually a very filling meal, since I'm so obsessed with representing each food group. On the other hand, if I'm just looking for good taste/eating what I want, I think "To hell with it!" and take whatever looks good. Which usually ends up being solely carbs since I'm so addicted to them. And occasionally some fruit.
If I ate a nice, healthy meal, I always want something sweet to finish it off. Hence dessert.
If I'm eating based on whatever tastes good to me...I eat lots of dessert as well....because

There were two of them a bright-eyed, innocent girl of ten, joyful and in awe of the world, and a tired old woman, eyes creased with laugh lines; she looked at the world in amused weariness.

She would leave her trinkets with the woman as well: a delicate tiara and a set of bracelets, which the old woman wrapped up and put aside.
The Others confused the girl; they dressed identically: pinstripe paintsuits with only minute color differences for each other. They'd smile at her unnervingly toothpaste commercial grins that seemed forced, condescending. Oftentimes she wou

I started this new world a few days ago, right? Well, I built my house into a MOUNTAIN, just to be different.
I was making a kitchen. I had dug so far out that I could see outside. It was nighttime, but I didn't really care.
I put some furnaces in place to block the outside.
And that's when I heard it.
I ALMOST PUKED I WAS SO SCARED.
AND TO MAKE IT EVEN WORSE, ALL THE LIGHTS IN THE LIVING ROOM WERE OFF AND I WAS HOME ALONE.
...So, on a random note, do you guys wanna see more of my FOP OCs...?

My mom sent me to pick up a game at the game area so we could pay for it at the main check-out line.
Lady accused me of theft, yelled at me, and forced me to go find my mom. Mom got pissed off at the bitch. It was pretty funny...
Then I was carrying a basket outside because there were too many things to carry at once. I was gonna return the basket after I got the stuff outside, and the people accused me of stealing the basket.
This has never happened before, either. Weird. There's a bunch of new assholes working there, too...
Meh. Anyways. I feel like drawing Adventure Time stuff, but I probably won't. 'Ya know. Because of the lack of feedback.
This is the reason why I'm planning on leaving this place for good. Dunno yet.

"Forget the laptop! Thousands of them are made daily. But if I got a Macaw, it would be mine, and mine only. It'd be the only one of who it was. So, if I had a choice between my own laptop and a Macaw, I'd want the Macaw!"

Never laugh at beginnersA clear explanation of why you can not laugh at the kids and beginners.Never laugh at beginners in Personal More Like This
Some users (not just spectators, but also good artists) young authors criticize, laugh at "curves" works. This is silly, especially when the authors do not ask for criticism.
Criticism does not work, it just hurts. Assist cautious practical advice and training. The importance of studying anatomy, drawing and theory to understand himself. It is impossible to impose.
The only important thing: the love of his work, love for the intermediate result and a great desire to paint / sculpt. It is better if the young author will draw hundreds of pictures a month of unsuccessful than successful one once a year.
At the same time, it is important to invest ourselves into work, rather than mechanically drawing the line. But investing is not possible if you do not love yourself and your creativity.
I started sculpting in 2006. If I were recaptured desire, if not there were people who liked even the first of ... I'd never sculpted
Hayns: attitude to death and to warHayns: attitude to death and to war in Personal More Like This
Many thanks to :iconheliacwolf: for the translation!
Attitude to death.
Hayns have very complex and ambivalent attitude to death. Unlike humans, hayns do not regard death as a mystery- every single hayns knows for sure what a living creature feels when dying. Despite all the advantages, empathy and telepathy have a downside as well- other's sufferings feel like their own, inability to divide anyone into "outsiders" or "their own" groups. It is easy to kill one of their kind by turning him into a rival in their mind, which is a salvatory for the psyche, but completely impossible for an empath action. This conflict is a foundation of hayns' belief system. Their whole culture is a search for a compromise between death and life, between strong empathy towards one's pain and a necessity to kill.
Therefore, everything related to death is strictly ritualized. Hayns' rituals are like the opposite of compassion, from the side they may seem cruel and barbaric and their attitude

Never laugh at beginners, part 2Now let's talk about the pictures. I drew a lot and with great joy. At this level, which is available in 13/11/10 years. I drew no better than most beginners can see for yourself. These "masterpieces" swamped the Internet. Above them are laughing, they are criticized. And if the young author strongly respond to "fair criticism", it does hunt down.Never laugh at beginners, part 2 in Personal More Like This
So, I repeat: the criticism, which is not requested, no one needs. If the author had not asked to point out the flaws, do not do that. Otherwise, it does not help the artist, but satisfaction with their own ambitions.
I love my old job. I still tear anyone say a bad word about them. This is my childhood, my past, my roots. These are memories, stories, experiences. This is - alive and expensive. Does this mean that I do not understand their technical imperfections? Of course not. I see. Does this mean that I do not want to improve? Of course not. You can see how much technology has changed over the years. Not because of criticism, but by love

Hayns: priest instituteMany thanks to :iconheliacwolf: for the translation!Hayns: priest institute in Personal More Like This
Usually the most sensitive, black hayns become priests. They find it difficult to kill, in a way it's even mor difficult for them to kill that to their tribesman, however empathy won't allow them to walk by somebody's sufferings. That kind of priest was the famous Hotis. All later cultures tied to be like him. Sometimes those who have predatory tendencies, who still show a will to kill despite the emotional paint become priests too. (Harro was like that). Those whose fur is lighter than average are usually not allowed to become priests, though among them are more 'predators'. Priests are those who have right to kill and do that often and publicly. They must also live up to certain ethnic standards. For example, they must have high sensitivity along with cold-bloodedness, have abilities of mental control, persuasion, perfect temper and self-control. Priests have very long and complicated learning process. Most are often eliminated dur
