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

History Repeats ItselfLast week a Connecticut action group going by the name of SouthingtonSOS held a video game burning event where local citizens were encouraged to bring various forms of violent media to be burned in a dumpster, no doubt a reaction to the recent Connecticut shooting.History Repeats Itself in Personal More Like This
I wish I could say I am surprised about this, but sadly the whole media frenzy surrounding violence in video games and movies reminds me of something that already happened once and profoundly affected the media it was accusing: Comic books.
During the early days of comic books, things occasionally got a little risqué. EC Horror comics in particular delighted in rendering extremely gruesome images and disturbing themes in their comics, which were being sold to children unbeknownst to their parents (because naive parents at the time had no reason to suspect comics might contain "inappropriate" material). However all that changed in 1954.

Proving your Geek CreedNerds all share a unified experience of being socially ostracized from the rest of other so-called "normal" societal groups. The reasons may vary (not being good at sports, liking a certain sci-fi/fantasy TV show, etc), but the fact that we all were picked upon and marginalized during our most formable years is a major part of the nerd/geek identity. But in recent years nerd culture stopped being it's own niche thing, and has started to seep into mainstream culture. Making nerd culture more accessible has naturally brought with it a new group of people and fans into our sphere... and not everyone is happy about this development.Proving your Geek Creed in Personal More Like This

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

You know, I was on the fence about the new Smash Bros game. Even with Mega Man I didn't really see anything remarkable about the game to peak my interest. 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..

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.

Ok, so, lets note something. Obama cares more about his health care plan than the safety and security of the American people.

It means that no one in the military, enlisted or civilian, will be getting paid. I don't know how long or if it is going to happen, I do know that it will be announced this Monday night. What I do know is my family won't be getting any money, and because both my parents are retired, we could loose our house, or our electricity, or we could just loose everything...

There's shit or something going on in my head, but I absolutely refuse for that to be my fucking reason for my fucking lack of sleep. How ridiculous is that shit? To have some fucking mental problem keep you from sleeping. Besides, repressing this shit seems to work just as well.

Devious Journal EntryIt’s too late and I’m up too early. My mind is actually lagging. Watching Mulan, the words don’t quite mesh with the mouths of the characters. The sound is off, by just a heartbeat of a moment, but I notice it. I’m tired, but not tired. I’ll be exhausted tomorrow, but that’s okay. Two things happen when I am up this late (note: late is used in the context of not having gone to sleep yet. Early implies that one had gone to sleep first), although not at the same time. Everything suddenly becomes the most complicated and brain-numbing philosophical question possible or everything suddenly rushes to become nothing. Words, events, emotions, they either mean everything or they mean nothing.Devious Journal Entry in Personal More Like This

So, I know some people struggle with jumping into RPs or RPing in general so I wanted to write this down.
I will start with the most important thing.
RESEARCH WHO YOU'RE PLAYING
Not enough people are doing this and as such there are instances where I have had to correct people. If you're going to be playing a nation, you may as well do a little homework. A quick look on google will tell you a heck load of things. This is fairly difficult sometimes if you are playing a nation you personally are unfamiliar with ( i.e. I think many people will struggle to play India properly. )
My advice for this is to take these things into account:

-Japan's Headcanons-Basic Headcanons-Japan's Headcanons- in Personal More Like This
These ones are the headcanons that are more..."canon". Most of you might already know these, but I still listed those significant ones.
It's actually rude to call someone by their first name in Japan, so I would advise that you call him by his last name "Honda" or by his nation name "Japan" when you first talk to him.
He will only let people close to him to call him by his first name.
He owns a shiba inu named "Pochi".
Usually addresses someone by ending their name with "-san" or "-sama" to be polite. "-kun" to others who are younger, like Italy, and also his dog, Pochi.
If really irritated, he won't use any honorific suffix at all.
He finds and hopes that to be extremely offensive, but really, whoever the person Japan's raging at will just find it as nothing at all.
Has a personal space bubble that is WAY bigger than others.
Japan is a glutton, and he is proud of it.

Journal Entry 002Konbanwa. I see it is time to write again.Journal Entry 002 in Personal More Like This
Well...there's so many things that happened today, I don't even know where to start...
I guess I'll just state the main occurrences.
Erm...first thing's first. Francis-san thought up of the most idiotic idea and tried to auciton off Arthur-san. Whoever bid the highest gets to sleepover at his dorm. He apparently believed it would help raise money for the school, but the North-American siblings had started a rivalry over this. I tried to help, but I can only stay at 123, 080 Yen, or else I will go broke...of course, Alfred-san had to take it to the limit until they reached 123,080,000 Yen!! I do not believe he even has that much money...!
Arthur-san finally thought of a solution in which he stated that we are all allowed to sleep over if we each brought 61, 540 Yen. I went along, because of course it was a good idea, and I really do want to contribute to the school funds. Although...this leads to the second event.

Fuuuck. Everything Seems to Remind Me....Kill Me!With the music yesterday reminding of how fucked up I am, because of my past. I've pulled through but I cant help but want to cry. 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. And before I wouldn't tell anyone, I'd pretend to be that bubbly person everyone loves me as(or maybe that dark, twisted and sadistic one that people find out I am).

I am a dark person. It is no secret that I like cuffs and collars and other weird things such as that. I think that dead bodies and blood is AWESOME and no1 can make me feel different!!! I love wearing black eyeliner and if i could my hair would be a different color every week. I am MORBID. BOTDF and HU are some of my FAVORITE bands. I AM PERVERSE! And I am proud to say it. Blood and bruises~ Those are my favorite colors. I would love to party if I could. Goth, Punk, Emo, Scene and Skater. Ive been called all of them. But you know what. The posessions closest to my heart are a purple octopus and a sock monkey (the same one who holds a pair of keys given to me by an old friend). I am a child at heart. I am one of the most perkiest people out there. Even if I wear a beanie, eyeliner and dark clothes. You can ALWAYS see me with my Monkey hanging out o my bag. Cuz that is just who I AM. I wont EVER change for anybody.
My Party~My party was absolutely amazing. I had SO much fun. Save for a few mishaps. ^_^ Tackled James and GOT tackled BY James early on because me, James, Sierra, Abbi, Brandon and Riku got in to a water fight xD I stole his glasses and Sonic Screwdriver many times. LOL! It was fun. Talked to him and my friends alot. Got taken by my friends alot and didnt really get to hang/talk with a few select people but its all good. We all had fun.My Party~ in Personal More Like This
Malia stopped by and got to say hi and give my my drawings. It was truly amazing. I love her so much and was so glad her (and Jean Paul) got to stop by and say hi.
Got attacked by my door and started bleeding all over the place >_
Is anything working right now? :IThere seems to be a glitch that won't let a majority of my watchers get notified of my updates. I noticed this after posting and realizing there is significantly reduced traffic. I logged into my other account :iconknites: and sure enough, the newest update did not appear in the other account's inbox. Some people have reported receiving the update, while many others reported not receiving it. I decided to make sure and made a poll asking people if they received the lasted drawing in their inbox, and guess what? There's another glitch affecting the polls so most people aren't getting notified of the poll either... =_= Or at least the newest poll is not showing up in my other account either. I wonder if people will even see this journal?Is anything working right now? :I in Personal More Like This
I already reported the bug, but if people can see this journal, I'm curious if anyone is experiencing similar problems? I remember years back there was a bug that only affected people with a certain amount of watchers which means some ar

College LifeI don't really talk too much about my daily life on dA since I didn't want to spam everyone with constant horror stories of my time in the kitchen (which is why I do that on fb https://www.facebook.com/FisheyePlacebo/photos_stream instead) but today, I would like to share some of the extra "special" moments during my college life (even though I graduated already).College Life in Personal More Like This

So to avoid confusing everyone, the artist alley is in the main exhibit hall on the 2nd floor. The hall is for dealers near the entrance, and artist tables are in the back half of the hall. Here's a map http://s3-us-west-1.amazonaws.com/main-web-w/wp-content/uploads/2012/06/Exhibit-Full-letter.pdf but the map doesn't show each artist tables. If you walk down aisle 6, I should be on the first row of the artist alley tables.
See you! And good luck finding parking
It's that time of the year again for Anime Expo!

Fisheye Placebo Cosplay DerpsI had the honor of derping with these hilarious Fisheye Placebo cosplayers at Sakura-con!Fisheye Placebo Cosplay Derps in Personal More Like This
Good times. Good times.
See you guys again at Fanime! ♥
Frey, Alex, and Vance cosplayed by Shotalicious, Sugarlat, Liarino. I'm cameoing as rabbit ear fingers.
And then I drew them XD

ART MAJORS FTW
Robin and Toby copsplayed by usagi2ranpha and Little-islander
Alex has a plastic gun. Toby is going ARAFDHAJGJ. Robin is confused. Noting makes sense and all is right with the world.
The level of maturity is overwhelming.
They wanted to cosplay outerwear and underwear so they even made Vance and Frey's panties. Not only that, they also made extra ones for me to wear XD
Last but not least, amazing cosplay and photography by KashinoRei and Andy-K. They are in Germany so I wasn't able to meet them at Sakura-con, but hopefully I'll be able to visit a European con in the future

Fisheye Placebo ImagesI saw this awesome Fisheye Placebo music video by Linda Neumann and realized that it would probably be easier for music video editors and language translators to have a textless version of all of the panels so here it is https://www.dropbox.com/sh/84jcondrsylfh82/pVEbp8d1QqFisheye Placebo Images in Personal More Like This
Feel free to download the images for any class projects, music videos, translations, etc. Please credit and remember that I drew these for everyone to read for free, so do not try to sell or profit from my work in anyway. If I find people charging others for translated versions of this story, or selling copies of my work, I will be very angry ):
That aside, check out the cool video! She did a wonderful job editing everything
MemoriesI've been in China for almost a week now, and all the memories I have of this place is flooding back. Unfortunately, many of those memories are quite negative. A lot of people commented on my last journal asking why my stepmom and half brother had tried to kill me. It's not a secret and I'm in a weird mood right now so I'll retell the story.Memories in Personal More Like This
I last visited China almost five years ago. I was unfortunate enough to be stranded at the LAX airport for two days. During that time, I met another girl my age who was also returning to China to visit family. We talked for a long time and I found out her parents are also divorced like mine. She told me how her stepmom would regularly burn her with cigarette buds. I was horrified but I felt lucky that my stepmom is kind to me. I told her I was lucky to have a nice stepmom. I had never been so wrong.
When I first arrived, my stepmom greeted me kindly, and we talked, joked, and hung out like a regular family would. But her mask was quickly cracking a
Stolen art sold at conventionsHey guys! I had a great time at SacAnime but while I was there, I saw a vendor's booth called Hidden Supplies selling sakimichan's Kakashi paintingStolen art sold at conventions in Personal More Like This
I asked her if she gave permission for this or not, and sure enough, she didn't. I think it's safe to say that the rest of the $25 mats sold at the booth were also using stolen art, but I don't recognize any of the artists. Here are some photos of the booth and all the mats are also listed on their website https://www.hiddensupplies.com/index.php?routeroduct/category&path=71. Please take a look and report the images you recognize to the respective artists so that they may take the proper legal actions against these these people. Thank you!
