Masterful storytelling is about suspending disbelief.
One would think the most important element of a story being told is the events being depicted. Belief in these events, however, is a prerequisite to appreciation. Picture this: watching Anna Karenina in the theater, you’re riveted to the epic tale of doomed lovers. Your friend, a history professor with a fetish for details, laughs at random moments. After the movie, he pontificates at length on how unbelievable the movie was

The Enduring Enigma of CollageFebruary 21, 2013/by techgnoticThe Enduring Enigma of Collage in Art Features More Like This
Collage is one of those art forms that immediately sets off heated debate about our most fundamental ideas and visceral feelings about the very essence of art itself.
Turn of the century troublemakers Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso began enhancing their paintings with glued on bits of cut out fabric and other materials, thus neatly blurring the line between the art categories of painting and sculpture. They shifted the emphasis or “meaning” of their painted images beyond an attempted interpretation of the painted “text” to thinking about the artists’ “process” – something wholly separate from the paintings themselves.
And with that a whole new Rubic’s Cube of basic questio

He is such an unbelievable prat, he really, really is.
The latest story about the immature git is him using the N-word several times in a song that was originally ment to be called 'There's one less lonely girl', but Justin decided it would be funny to go racist and change it to 'There's one less lonely N****r'.
The lyrics go like this -

Seems the Tardis is going to get shrunk in an upcoming episode of Doctor Who - Series 8.
Shown on the right is a 4ft model of the Police Box prop, which is a perfect replica of the modern Police Box prop used during filming outside the Doctor's Tardis, but no doubt you'll easily notice the windows are not entirely the same as the full size prop, even the lamp on the roof looks somewhat different.
Course, if you know your classic Doctor Who, then you'll remember that the Tardis has shrunk before, in the 4th Doctor adventure 'Logopolis' which saw a much smaller prop appear as the shrunken Tardis.

After several arrests, drug addiction and being homeless, a Miami man has overcome the odds to graduate from FIU with a Master's degree in social work.
Out of thousands of graduates, only one -- 50-year-old Aaron Alvin Sr. -- got a standing ovation at Tuesday night's graduation ceremony.
"I wanted to make sure I was in a position to help people and so I went ahead and got my Master's," Alvin said. "I just continued to pursue something that was bigger and better and ended up here."
Alvin was arrested several times for drugs, grand theft auto, and domestic violence. He was also homeless for a time.

Four Years AgoFour years ago, something happened that completely changed the course of my life in a very real, very noticeable way.Four Years Ago in Personal More Like This
On the 19th of January 2008, I hadn't really intended to do anything to make my life change so drastically. There was no plan, no preconception, nothing. Things just happened the way they happened, and I wouldn't change it for the world.
On the night of the 19th of January 2008, tealpirate and I started going out.
From that day on, my life was changed. I'd gone from a previously unhappy relationship to one I now was full of hope, excitement and expectation. My previous relationship had me feeling worn out, disillusioned and unhappy by three years or so into the relationship, yet with Jenn, I'm four years in, and still as crazily in love as the day I met her.
So, here's to you, Jenn, and the four fabulous years of life you have already gifted me with. I hope to continue them for as long as I live, and can only hope to bring you the same measure of happiness that you
On The Subject of LabelsOne of the recurring comments given in my previous journal was "Why do we need to label ourselves at all?", or words to that effect. There are many of you who believe NO-ONE needs a label.On The Subject of Labels in Personal More Like This
I both agree and disagree.
I agree, because I think you're right that we don't need to define to ourselves what we are by putting a label on it. I shouldn't say to myself "I'm gay. Therefore, I only am attracted to women." I think that if, in your head, you have a defined, labelled view of what you are, you start conforming yourself around that label. I'm sure many of you have heard stories of men and women who came out, then later admitted to feeling pressured into staying gay because they'd defined themselves as such to so many people. Conforming yourself around a social definition like that cannot be healthy.
But at the same time, I disagree against the idea that we don't need labels in this world at all. We do need them... we just don't need to place extensive mean

SALAMANDER by Thomas Wharton.
This is my favourite book and for many good reasons. It is set in an alternative Victorian era, and follows the life of a book maker called Nicolas as he travels around the world trying to make an infinite book. (A book with no end and no start).
The narrative is overly colourful and the author takes full advantage of the readers senses, especially that of smell and sight. The short narratives play like a cinematic reel in the mind.
Overall, it's a book about books which contains some very hea

She checked my ears because the last 4-5 years they have been very itching and painful and she said I have way too dry ears (what I suspected) so she ordered me to go buy some oil what can be used on dry skin everywhere so I bought it and it has start to help my ears even that they still are itching and painful. That nurse also gave me a time to doctor because of my feet and I got that time to 14th day. I also had to go to employment office that day and I had made a plan with my big sister there. I told them (social worker and employment office worker) my plans which were that my first priority is to find apartment from Helsinki (Finland's main city) and move there 'cause here's absolutely NOTHING to me and this place doesn't make me feel good or home etc. and I a

My doctor called me at the beginning of this month and she felt like she's ignoring me and my feet problem totally. I tried to ask her about the surgery to my little toes if I someday in the future need that, but she just snapped back at me; "You don't need it." She gave me 2 weeks of sick leave (right word??) and she said that I would get extra money in that time BUT a person has to wait 9 working days and in those days you won't get any money. So from 2 weeks I only would had got money from 1 day so I didn't even try to get it. Too much paperwork for one day.
I have my old and loyal 24/7 shoes now which have higher, wider and stronger heel and that has help my heels.

My visit here in Helsinki has been kind of good so far. I have had fun time with my sis (mostly by playing Warriors Orochi 3) and I have buy some nice stuffs! I bought new shoes, new jakcet, one huge mug, Asian candies, caramel flavored ho chocolate from small fancy store (but that chocolate is dark and it taste bad), super sweet scent candles (strawberries, vanilla, roses and blueberry cake), animal skin printed decoration pillow cover, bra, blond hair color and I ate in my favorite restaurant. I also bought few Christmas gifts to my sis, her roommate, my mom and to 2 friends. Hopefully they will like them! I also got some gifts from my sis and her roommate from Japan!

I'm sorry I don't have any new drawings / I haven't been active. I'm with my big sister still and one evening she kind of "forced" me to play Final Fantasy XII because
a.) we had nothing to do
b.) I haven't play it or see it ever
c.) she wanted to watch me playing
so I have been playing a lot instead of drawing.
However one evening I DID try to draw but for a some reason I can't draw anything good or have any art ideas in my sis's place... So I might won't be submitting anything while I'm here but we will see.
So far my time here has been wonderful and fun! We have been shopping, we got money as a Christmas gift from one of our uncle and from our only grandmother and thanks to those moneys I managed to buy myself (from sale) new winter ankle boots and other winter boots with higher shank!!

Well it's not a true vacation: I'm not leaving town and I'll be doing lots of much needed things around the house and with the family, but it means I will have 5 days of available art time! I plan on drawing enough buffers to cover me for the next few months (these months are super busy for work) so I WILL update, but it may not be until Sunday of next week.

MOTIVATIONHey guys, Melon here once more to inform you on the pesky day by day life of a comic artist working full time at an Office Depot. Today's subject is motivation! And the lack there of and what to do about it.MOTIVATION in Personal More Like This
Lately, I have been suffering a severe lack of motivation. Granted the past few weekends have been nutso busy, first my birthday and then my inlaws coming to visit! I haven't had much time for anything aside work and fulfilling familial duties. Plus there's other factors.
Cherries and I decided, after much conversation and everything, that going to AnimeNEXT in 2015 wouldn't be a good idea. I haven't had time to work on my comics and art nearly as much as I would like and I do not want to rush any of my comics just so I can have something ready for then. Not my style. I'd rather be 100% ready than try to rush anything. Now having more time to work and less fear of not getting stuff finished, we also came to the conclusion that redoing book one of Frame by Frame might also be in the
NO MORE COMICS. (maybe)Hey so since apparently I make things difficult for a lot of people, I've decided to no longer pursue certain things in order to make life easier for myself and others.NO MORE COMICS. (maybe) in Personal More Like This
Such things including this comic.
I no longer want to be lumped into a category that seems to cause issues with friends and family so as of now, comics are ending.
Not just this one. All other projects will be put on an end as well.
Not like it was doing me a whole lot of good anyway.
So! Everyone have fun, enjoy the comic for what it is, and I'm going to go enjoy being a thoughtless automaton who doesn't create anymore.
What's the point anyway.
Things are still up in the air right now and I don't know what's going to happen. I appreciate all your kind words about me and the comic but I'm really self-conscious about continuing it. It was a rough night last night and I don't know how I'm feeling. Saying I'm ending my comics was like a punch in the gut but falling into this.. this category is just as bad. I've be
DECISIONS, DECISIONS...Hey guys! Sorry about not updating this past weekend but I've got a few decisions to make.DECISIONS, DECISIONS... in Personal More Like This
See, when I was working on the pages, I sat back and counted out how many scenes are left in book one and, to my surprise, there's only two major scenes left. That's it and I'm working on one of two right now. And that's really surprising to me because it sort of came up on me very quickly.
My decision is this: should I go for the gold and just draw out the remaining pages (about 40-60) and THEN work on updating or update as I go? Part of me really wants to get the pages done and go from there. I have been looking forward to ending this book for so long now that it's really exciting to think that it could be done so very quickly. Plus, I'm planning on taking about two month's break after it's finished to work on the script for book two, the redone pages of book one, and start planning out printing. So while I'm doing that, I could be posting pages and therefore killing two birds with one stone.
TIRED AND MORE THAN A LITTLE OVERWHELMEDIt's been more than a while, hasn't it guys? I know I've pretty much dropped off the face of the Earth but it's been a busy few weeks. Same song and dance though with only a few new things here and there.TIRED AND MORE THAN A LITTLE OVERWHELMED in Personal More Like This
First off, I am working. A LOT. 30+ hours a week which is awesome. Things at work are less than awesome though. For simple drama, it's wearing on me and I'm about to contact human resources about this whole bit of nonsense. Stuff is happening at work that should NOT be happening at work and yeah, lots of us are feeling it.
Aside from that, it's the same thing day in day out. Wake up, go to work, come home, repeat until the weekend. This weekend was busy with cleaning but I did manage to be productive. Such as I got a quote from my printer for Frame by Frame, I'm now editing the book to get that ready for print and once it's done, I can get back to focusing on other projects. Don't worry, I'm still working on Sky Avenue but I have other things in mind too.
I AM OUT OF BUFFERS!Pretty self explanatory!! Sorry guys I am totally out of comic buffers! Whoops! I went through those pages a lot quicker than I anticipated. Not a worry, I already have pages sent to Cherries and she will be toning them here as soon as she can. I'll have an update next Sunday!I AM OUT OF BUFFERS! in Personal More Like This
Really, where did all my pages go? I thought I had more but I guess not??
CONS AND SOME SUCH NONSENSEAlright. I've made list of priorities for my comics and art so I could participate in as many cons possible for 2015 (since I know I won't be able to for this year) but I've discovered that I'm already falling behind and that, seriously, ticks me off! I've been trying really hard to stay caught up but I'm wondering if I'm putting too much on my plate and if my expectations are too high. Or I'm just being a lot more lazy than I anticipated even for myself. It's hard to get as much work done as I want when I'm working a real job, taking care of a household, having time to relax and BE lazy, and then also do all my artwork as well. I'm terrible at scheduling though I love making lists and setting goals. I can't break down my day into a schedule because it never flows that way for me.CONS AND SOME SUCH NONSENSE in Personal More Like This

FRUIT BOWL COMICS IS NO LONGER ONLINE (update!)With much deliberation between Cherries and I, we decided not to renew our subscription for the website, Fruit Bowl Comics. Honestly, neither of us could maintain it together. We're both too busy and I can't do anything in web design and it wasn't fair to make Cherries do all the hard work of website upkeep. Plus, honestly, I don't think it was being utilized as it should have been. I wasn't utilizing it and I don't think anyone really visited it. So this is for the best I'm thinking for now. If we decide upon making another later, we will but for now it's just easier for us to not have one. Cheaper too.FRUIT BOWL COMICS IS NO LONGER ONLINE (update!) in Personal More Like This

My room suited my personality but was as big as my own room at home. Some hot boy's (not sure which anime character it was nor what he looked like) room had an interesting room that suited him. He was already in some relationship but I started to get that jealous feeling and wanted to plot a little something to get him to go out with me instead of his current girlfriend (which is the one that invited me). Some other character's room looked like a kitchen, and some others room looked like my one cousin's room with a lot of pets in tanks. Outside of the convention area, there's a playground meant for teens and adults that's by a river. These girls get really hyper on the playground and almost kill everybody (the whole playground equipment apparently wasn't stable because

This one took place at some hotel. There was some kind of ceremony going on with my family (can't remember if it was a Christening, wedding, or some form of family reunion), and I decided to stay behind in the hotel room since I'm not really the social type. Suddenly, I decided that I wanted to walk around the hotel and take a gander but as soon as I open the door to go out, there's a purple coloured portal. Out of curiosity, I decided to go in it, and it lead me to some mansion. As soon as I set foot in the mansion, this knowledge started forming in my head, basically letting me know my purpose of being in this mansion. My purpose was to obtain a specific item, and avoid being caught by the owner.
The owner and his wife were sound asleep in their room. They had more bedrooms upstairs but they were meant for either their relatives to sleep over, or for guests. I take a look around the mansion to get a knowledge of the place, and decide to go into the port

Dream Story 7
This one takes place in a few places, with the first being a shopping mall. It was about that I was shopping with my 2 cousins and...Marylin Manson....Only, it wasn't the Marylin Manson we know This Marylin Manson in my dream was only about 5 foot 2, had a Romanian accent, and he didn't wear the crazy makeup Marylin usually wears. All he had was the coon eyeshadow effect around his eyes. Anyway, so we were shopping, and my one cousin, who is Pretty-Inhuman's sister, buys Marylin Manson some kind of scarf, and he started crying in happiness.
Later, I'm at some Kiss concert chasing my brother around who was causing trouble. And then I warp to some cave, and hear som

Just wanna wish you guys/gals a happy new year This year has been all right The most memorable moments would have to have been Anime North (May) and Fan Expo (August). It was awesome getting to meet a few of my favourite actors, getting to meet some new friends, and getting to see my old buds from high school I'm hoping to go to one or both of those conventions again next year. As for what is and has been going on with me, I'm still working quite a bit, and have taken a break from drawing again. And I'll be hanging out with my friend Ceruluna again tomorrow Anyways, besides wishing yous a happy new year, here're some media updates:

The first dream was about that I was playing a video game that's a mixture of Final Fantasy 7 and Kingdom Hearts. The Organization members are in the game, Cid's one ability called Highwind was more explodey, and my characters I was controlling get poisoned from Cid's ability because the missiles hit large tanks of oil that splashed onto the characters.
Next dream was about that I was just in some field and forest area with large wild animals.
Next dream is about that I have a pet peacock that's a human cursed as a peacock. Later, I'm at some school grounds where a convention is being held and I change into a werebat and werewolf.
Next dream is about that I'm hanging out with my friends Cosmic-Awareness and Ceruluna in some metallic plated tank car-thing with tornadoes everywhere.
Next dream is about that me and my family get arrested for getting dirty from sheep (I dunno ).
Dream Story 27 And Another DA Rant (Long) Dream Story 27Dream Story 27 And Another DA Rant (Long) in Personal More Like This
This one's a LONG one and takes place at a high school. It was English class and everything around me became like some kind of video game. Whenever the teacher talked, you'd see a dialogue box pop up, and she lips the words she's saying with no sound coming out of her mouth. She asks someone to volunteer to take a few books back to the library and follow a few instructions on a piece of paper. I turn out to be the only one to volunteer and when she hands me the stuff, she tells me "good luck". I got a little confused as to why she tells me "good luck" but whatever.
How I had to get to the library was from a hatch at the end of the hallway. After opening the hatch, you climb down this rope ladder, and you're in the library. In the library, I go to look at the one piece of paper with the instructions and it turned out to be some riddle/puzzle. I hand the books to the librarian, and then start to follow what the instructions tell me. Apparently I had to find

This one takes place in my hometown. I have started a new life living in an apartment in the downtown area and running some errands before heading off to work. I realize that I lose track of time and was about to be late for work. I drop all my stuff and start booking it. As soon as I got to the train track bridge, everything around me started to become so foggy that I couldn't see anything in sight except myself. I don't even notice anything strange about the fog.
Suddenly, I fall into what looked like purple coloured crystal clear water and start swimming in it. Still, I found nothing strange of what was going on and just kept moving forward. After swimming across the purpley lagoon, I get out an

This one takes place at my grandmother's from my dad's side. I was sleeping over at her place for the weekend since it's part of the custody court order (my parents are divorced), my dad had to work the entire weekend, his next door neighbours are nosy (they've tried to get my dad in trouble a few times when he wasn't doing anything wrong), and I wasn't old enough to stay home by myself for

So, how was everyone's Christmas? Me? Ah, mine was all right, it was pretty quiet Had a dinner at my grandfather's from my mother's side. Got to meet a few new people that are part of our family now (my grandfather's girlfriend's relatives), and the food was delicious The last part of the dinner got louder since we played some charades. Mine were pretty simple, just stuff that had to do with Batman, Pina Colada, and White Zombie.
A day later, I got to hang out with my one friend Ceruluna at Brown Dog Cafe. Was a nice chat we had And then another day later, I got to go shopping with my dad and practiced driving a little bit. I did good for a change, and what shocked me was that my dad spent more on me and my brother Usually he spends approximately $120 on both of us but THIS year, he spent over $200
As for gifts, all I got were:
$320 for shopping.

rabbits slit down belly
