The Resurrection of Mara Jade
Like millions of kids growing up in the 1980s, I spent many happy hours imagining what it would be like in the rosy future when George Lucas made new Star Wars movies. It was almost as difficult and delicious to imagine as adulthood.
Return of the Jedi came out in 1983, but many, many years would pass before we had new stories. In the meantime, we created our own stories with fan art, fan

What kind of new narratives will 21st Century storytellers create for our changing world?
Brain Games host Jason Silva tackled that question in a two-minute video called "Lucid Dreaming," outlining the tremendous opportunities (and challenges) facing 21st Century storytellers. As our relationship to technology evolves, the stories w

Sometimes a painter’s vision expresses and inspires what the zen philosopher’s words can only define and describe.
When remarkable lives defined by success and abundance are reviewed from their beginnings, it is remarkable that the narrowest of paths, sometimes a precarious balancing between life a

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.”
– Guy Fawkes

Or Will you try to take the power?
Monty Oum has passed awayI am very sorry to have to inform everyone that Monty Oum has passed away. I am not sure what else to say, just that I'm sure everyone here is grieving.Monty Oum has passed away in Personal More Like This
You can read Matt's Journal here (the site is taking a of traffic so you might have to wait before reading it).
Rest in piece, Monty. We'll miss you.
Guys this does not mean the show is over. You have to remember that RWBY (just like RVB) has its own staff of animators that work the show. Its not Monty that animates the whole thing on his own. Not to mention that Miles and Kerry are the ones in charge of the writing of the show. Monty was the Creator and the one who helped push the show along. If anything the decision to continue the show will fall into the hands of Miles and Kerry.
Do not fret. I do not think they would want to end Monty's dream because of what happened. If anything the one true thing they will have to decide on is who will voice Re
Beware of malicious 'art theft' websites!I believe I made a journal like this in the past, but I have new watchers since, so I'll say it again.Beware of malicious 'art theft' websites! in Personal More Like This
There are quite a few websites being called out for "art theft", where you use the website's search function, and your artwork will almost invariably come up. The current one I've seen is called "Axsoris", which sounds delightfully like my favorite pairing in Kingdom Hearts, but is in actuality a VERY dangerous website loaded with malware, so not only will I NOT provide a link, I will also warn that you don't even try to find it.
There are two important things you need to know about websites like these:
1. They did not "steal" your art. ...YET.
The art is "stolen" (if you want to call it that) as soon as you or someone else searches for it. This is some new script malware-spreading websites are using, and while the intent is to dupe unsuspecting people who wander across the website to use the search, this works EXCEEDINGLY WELL on concerned artists who worry that their ar
