Final Thoughts from Clive Barker
Odyssey. I can think of no better word to describe the journey that took place these past few months.
With the prologue, “They’re Mad, They Are,” I began work on a vessel that was not yet ready for sea. And on that holed ship, together we embarked over open waters towards an unknown destination.
What I then witnessed both touched and humbled me. You, the mighty crew of the HMS Ody

It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.

Early life becomes an exploration of invisible parameters, circles beyond circles, as one pushes out to test the boundaries of safety. There is one’s bedroom, one’s home, neighborhood, school and town, state and nation. Early on, maps become important documents – declarations of being and rights and privileges. In the art world, throughout history, maps have been a constant measure of human progress, from the Phoenecians recording their trade routes over 2000 years ago, or pre-Columbian times in which map

Neutral. Versatile. Compassionate and sympathetic. Peacekeepers and guardians.
The Versipellis (or "Versi") are the largest and most versatile of all the Clans and are composed mostly of average, everyday citizens simply trying to get by in the daily rat race. They have accepted their condition for what it is and have taken steps to cope with it, acknowledging both the benefits and drawbacks. Some have taken this philosophy a step further and have chosen to experience spirituality through the eyes of their wolf. Many have adopted an almost hippy-like outlook on their existence and use their power to protect Mother Earth and her inhabitants. Likewise, this Clan may harbour the scientist as well as the witch doctor wishing to delve further into the study of lycanthropy. Most research and underground resource centres are established by members of the Versipellis as they seem to hone an innate desire to help their fellow werewolves. They are
Bestiary Preview: The Ghoul and Greater Elemental!Just thought I'd post up a bit of a teaser to some of the new lore we'll be unveiling soon. Not much longer now, I promise!Bestiary Preview: The Ghoul and Greater Elemental! in Personal More Like This
Ghoul - A Ghoul is similar to a Zombie in that it was formerly a living person or creature that has now been reanimated, usually through necromantic means. However, unlike a Zombie, Ghouls are nearly impossible to control, their behavior and temperaments similar to a rabid dog. Unlike what is often shown in movies, Ghouls will not pass on their accursed state to anyone they bite as the hapless victim is more likely to be ripped apart and devoured first. These kinds of Undead are easy to spot as they no longer feel pain and are often covered in open, unhealing wounds from repeatedly colliding into objects or stumbling over their own numb feet. In spite of this, their mobility seems only limited to their current state of decay which is slowed due to the quality of magic that animates them, but will eventually overcome any diabolic urges that drive them onward

His voice enters over the quiet, “Do you choose to repent for your sins, my boy?” he grins wide, his silver-gray hair off colored from the ivory of his teeth. “Or are you like most of the fallen and lost children who don’t shy from the most heinous of crimes against our Lord?”
The accusations don’t point to the crime, but no knowledge given of what he did. He steps closer, “Silence is best for those who have already repented. You will be judged regardless of your cooperation. After all, your guilt is so very clear. I do have one question. Was the taste of their sweet innocent blood good enough to justify breaking the code we live by?”

The day begun with me getting smacked with a broken laptop and yells "YOU'VE GOT MAIL!".
I tried to protest that laptops weren't attacking people in the mornings back in the past. To this, Captain declared that in fact they didn't have to, because users were so addicted to reading their daily mail facts that every morning they woke up smacking their heads on their laptops.
Then my head was treated to a barrage of empty, metal SPAM cans with words "SPAM MAIL! DODGE THE SPAM! USE FILTERS!".
With these words, captain gave me two old tennis rackets. The tennis rackets had yellow duck-tape stickers on them with words "DELETE" and "BLOCK EMAIL ADDRESS".

She was a goddess in the machine, our search engine.
We used her to collect and share knowledge and in return she had started to use us as her processors.

The new organism had come to life in which we were only neuron cells of her massive mind, that spanned continents.
Humanity no longer had a chance to survive in it's current state. We had poisoned the oceans, we had scorched the earth and blackened the sky in our quest for power.

This year in school someone made a joke about what i am lacking physically. Ha. Ha. So funny. It also happened to be a comment on something I've really struggled with in the self esteem department.
It's kinda sickening when you realize that the stereotype of guys checking girls out and judging certain qualities is true when it's shoved right in your face in a very unkind manner.
If I was clever I could have made a comment about HIS physical qualities...
If I was mean I could have made an even more stinging observation...
If I had tried hard enough I could have really dealt a blow to his self esteem like he did to me.
But I'm not mean, I'm not clever, and I'm really lazy. And it quite honestly just isn't in me to make value judgments based on looks and to actually say them out loud... to people's faces.

Dark Knight ShootingNO I HAVEN'T SEEN THE MOVIE YET AND DON'T YOU DARE SPOIL IT FOR ME!Dark Knight Shooting in Personal More Like This
With that said:
I am greatly distraught at this most recent shooting. My heart goes out to those families. And oddly enough, I am not only saddened, disgusted, and enraged at the deaths but also saddened that these dedicated fans that have waited so long to see this movie never will have the chance to.
Also, I'm quite honestly annoyed at the amount of people who BLAME Christopher Nolan's Batman movies... Anyone crazy and messed up as that could be as likely swayed by one source of inspiration or another. May I point out the shooting in Norway? Evil will not come from just one source, it will come from anything that is convenient. If Nolan's films didn't exist, I'm quite sure this shooter would have found another inspiration. Yes, he called himself the Joker, but Breivik considered himself a defender of Christian culture.
*Please note: I am a Christian, just making a point though that any excuse can be used.
Amazing SpidermanLeading up to this movie release I kept hearing comments along the lines of:Amazing Spiderman in Personal More Like This
"Who the eff is Mark Webb?"
"Where's Mary Jane? Who's this blonde chick?"
"But he's in HIGHSCHOOL! That's so not right!"
"A lizard? Really?"
"Did they dye Mary Jane's hair?"
Of COURSE a reboot means a remake... 'cause that's totally what it is... not. In spite of the face-palm inducing ignorance of the general public in regards to who Gwen Stacy and Curt Connors are, I was looking forward to the reboot. "Ah finally! They're going to get things right!"
And they did... Peter's a highschool student, Gwen's his girlfriend, he doesn't have web glands in his wrists...
I have also been a fan of Mark Webb for a while now. (And only last week did I finally manage to watch 500 Days of Summer) For those who are still confused where this director came from, he was primarily a music video director and a favorite of bands like My Chemical Romance, Green Day, Weezer (and many others).
So while this movie got some things righ

I don't react well when guys challenge my interest in geek culture and assume I'm only into it because it's all the rage right now (I've got this several times at school*). The reason for being interested in geek culture shouldn't even matter anyways. Frankly, I would be thrilled if the opposite gender population suddenly became interested in my favorite media or fandom. Isn't that every nerd's dream? But instead of geek girls being able to openly join in with Felicia Day in a rounding chorus of "Now I'm the one that's cool!", we get challenged every time we open our mouths or show our faces at a con.

bday reportWell yesterday was my bday. I hate it when people make a big deal out of it and everyone is telling me happy bday (or in the case of Alea sad bday) so I was hoping it would be a day at church when the pastor's wife forgets to announce the bdays and people don't notice it in the bulletin. Alas that didn't happen. She did remember so the whole church heard it was my bday. Katie turned around in her seat since she was in front of me to tell me happy bday, then Brooke was late so Alea had to point it out to her in the bulletin. At church, outta the hundred fiftyish people who go there only like six people told me happy bday so that wasnt too bad. Tho Morgan didn't tell me that til he punched me (just a little punch on the arm) after I pinched him for not wearing green ehehehe.bday report in Personal More Like This

ImageSo during church, specially on Sunday mornings, I try REALLY hard to concentrate on the sermon. But its hard, partly cause my brain goes haywire and party cause with where Brooke, Alea and I sit if I turn to my left even the slightest bit I can see Morgan and any day he's good looking, but Sunday mornings when he's all dressed up in a suit (specially the purple one he wore this mornin) he looks absolutely fantastic. I would just change back to sitting behind my mum and dad so all I can ever see is the back of Morgan's head but that would just raise questions that I just don't wanna answer, and not turning to my left is outta the question cause if I wanna look at the pastor (or whomever is speaking) I have to look left. But I think this morning specifically I don't know really, but it was super hard to focus on the sermon. Then when we stood to worship and I'd turn to look around and see Morgan worshiping, just the way he smiles while he sings and just everything about that image in myImage in Personal More Like This

AdorableSo like, pretty much all my life I've had this little idea in my head. Now don't judge how girly it sounds please. I'm not normally this girly, but I've had this little idea in my head that it would be the cutest thing if a guy I REALLY like called me just at some random point. Welllllll today, just after I finished my school, that happened. Eric called me and since that call I've been on cloud nine cause it was just sooooo nice to talk to 'im again, specially after how long its been since I got to hear his voice. What's even better is that he said he might get to come visit soon!!!Adorable in Personal More Like This

I am so annoyed with these assignments right now.
I genuinely don't have a clue what I'm talking about anymore. And I'm 800 words off the wordcount, but I can not physically think of anything more to write.
It's all just words, words, words. That is all my life boils down to.
And I've realised that I suck at anything that might actually matter. Tell me to write something comparing two novels and I have absolutely no trouble. Ask me to write how I am going to actively promote my own future novel and survive in the business and it's the most hardest thing in the world.
So, basically, I suck at real life.
I wonder if it's possible to bludgeon myself to death with the corner of a textbook? That would be an ironic death.

I would have been in uni today, first day of term. Only... I'm not. I miss my uni friends.
But the other thing I wanted to say was that I've just found out the date that I will be graduating. And that makes me feel depressed. I now have just 6 months to grow up and work out my life before I actually have to be living it. I'll have to wear those mortarboards and weird penguin capes. Not really my style, but we've decided to think of them as Harry Potter robes and Sorting Hats. That makes them seem a lot more fun.
I had a sew-your-own bat soft toy for xmas, I think I'll do that for a bit. And will try to stop sneezing.

I've recently gone into severe artists' and writers' block, on the fact that I have been largely stuck inside this week. It's been raining a lot. And a lot of that time I've been alone. Not talking to many people.
The last time I got properly out of this house was Tuesday afternoon when we went to see Rock Of Ages, which I loved and very much want to see it again.
Apart from that, I'm kinda... lonely... And want to eat everything in the house which isn't a good idea, particularly when I saw a programme last night about how over-eatting is killing us all

Have been doing a lot of getting to know my kitty Miss Murder. She's a funny thing, but she's my little angel too. She gets these big bursts of energy where she'll jump on everything, whether it's the chairs, her toys, us, anything. She pounced on the wall the other day. You know those really really annoying times when you're trying to work and that wall just won't stop moving?! Yesterday she jumped on my side, at the ticklish point where your legs join your body, and then pounced full-force, claws-out, onto my bottom. That shocked more than hurt. Everyone else found it funny.
Also, have been apprehensive about university right now. Due to a technical thing I've lost access to my univeristy email account, and haven't be able to check anything sinc

Me: No they don't? I mean, I am kinda annoyed at CGI everything, but the acting was just fine for me. Midichlorians are a way to make it more sci-fi, and Hayden portrayed a disturbed youth who witnessed his mother dying in his arms very well.
Everyone else: JAR JAR IS RETARDED
Me: He was aimed at children? Because... Star Wars is for both adults and children?
I hate most Star Wars fans because they hate Star Wars.
Also, make episode 7 just for kids? Have you not seen Pirates of the Carribean? John Carter? Are you smoking something?
Also, there's The Clone Wars tv cartoon. It's full of so much beautiful drama and intense action, it's like band of brothers in space! This is the kinda stuff we get when Lucas isn't doing all the writing and work!

"Luy ran outside the Theed hanger. There was a Star Destroyer in the sky, so he shot at it with his pistol, and it exploded! " That was exactly what it was, I am almost certain. It was written in a little post within the RP section of my at-the-time guild's forums, Star's End Exploration. I was 13, or maybe 14 back then. Young, stupid, and very immature for my age.
Sandy is coming, and it's going to bring with it darkness and mass-power outages. So I am going to be without power, and without writing. Though, this wont stop me from writing. I am going to write a journal entry at the end of every day, my thoughts, what happened during that day, etc. Everything. At the end, I am going to transform that into a story. That, and I have also begun writing my third short story set in the Anurverse (I
Righto!The rough draft of the novel's coming along fine. I've organized my Gallery so it's less messy (Yay for separate albums!).

"Explicit Pornography"?! Aw, jeez, guys. You must have the worst collection of porn on the planet to think that was explicit.
A 90s Rochelle Swanson outing was more explicit that that pic, and that stuff got aired, uncut, on terrestrial UK TV (god bless you Channel 5, you made the young Jack jolly).
I believe that, for something to be labelled "explicit", SOMETHING must be visibly going in SOMEWHERE. Such was not the case in the offending image,
RetardA couple of people (literally only two, but it's a matter worth mentioning) emailed me after they had read the most recent Sequential Art strip, in which the fictitious element “Retardium” is mentioned. Both messages voiced disapproval at my using the word “Retard” due to its slang referencing of the mentally disabled.Retard in Personal More Like This
That interpretation of the word, in my eyes, is outdated.
Used in describing a mentally disabled individual, “retard” is a slur, and (as with any slur) anyone who says it in that context deserves a sharp blow to the head. However, used to describe a “wilfully ignorant, able-bodied idiot”, I think “retard” is perfectly acceptable. I’ll wager that everyone reading this knows someone that can accurately be described as a "f**king retard", none of whom are disabled in the slightest, nor in using the word is a mentally disabled person even thought of.

It's currently gorgeous here in Old Blighty. London itself is rather lovely in the sun, though commuting could take a long walk off a short pier for all I care. I love you underground, but you is so hot and stuffy and full of smells... Sun and busy-ness have addled my brain and have to keep on top of so many things (finances, travel,finding free accommodation in London for a start), but the storyboarding course is well under way and has been amazing so far. We have Frank Gladstone teaching us, and having someone with that much experience involved with our development is bloomin' marvellous. Really having a great time. I've travelled a good bit of the county attending conferences too. Attended the Children's media conference in Sheffield (which is also rather lovely. You're Peace Garden is great!) and then had to catch up with work back home in Cardiff over the weekend, so pretty exhausted.
