When recently asked how his political candidate would explain certain positions taken during the
nomination process with contrary positions to be taken during the general election, the campaign chief
replied that stated political positions were “like an Etch A Sketch,”—meaning they could simply be
flipped over, erased and begun over from scratch.
Were it that adult life were as simple as a happy Etch A Sketch memory from childhood.
(The campaign chief took heavy heat for his flippant, if truthful, statement.) The incident made
me wonder how many of us had early experiences as “sketch artists” with that incredible red toy that
has become almost standard issue for so many children still to this day.

About my TMNT rantGot a long journal head of you. I tried to break it up a bit so you can skim parts.About my TMNT rant in Personal More Like This
It appears some people were a little less than happy with the idea that I’m not going to see the new TMNT movie, yet have already formed a negative opinion about it. Some people, who don’t understand what the word means, are calling this “hypocritical” since I often ask that people try to see both sides of an issue, so taking a definitive stance here with (what appears to be to them) incomplete data is wrongheaded of me. So now I gotta write this journal to explain my actions better. Hope you’re happy ‘bout that...
It’s just a movie! Why does it matter?
Because it’s not JUST a movie. Movies do not exist in a vacuum. How well (or bad) a movie does informs YEARS of upcoming movies and careers. Thousands of people’s jobs are dictated on the whim of what the box office rankings are for opening weekend. A now famous example is Guillermo
3D Movies aren't as crisp as they use to beThis is a realization I had after getting the chance to watch some old school Pixar films in HD recently. While the story of Toy Story holds up well, the actual graphics and presentation look downright archaic in HD. Sometimes characters appear to “float” on the ground, while other times their feet intersect into the floor. Bump mapping textures are grossly pixelated. And I could literally see the wireframe corners of Buzz Lightyear’s mouth clipping into itself.3D Movies aren't as crisp as they use to be in Personal More Like This
That being said, one of the positive things I noticed was when I was watching A Bugs Life. The movie just POPPED with so much clarity and crispness. It was so beautiful to look at in HD. And then it hit me... the reason 3D movies don’t look this good, is because they’re not crisp anymore.
See, as technology got better, we learned how to round the edges of characters better. Objects that are square are still slightly rounded on the corners to make them more believable. And we learned to add in rack

One of the prevailing themes of the new movie, apparently, is that everything is predestined. April was predestined to meet the turtles, and the turtles were predestined to become mutants. Everyone is connected to everyone else in ways that are flabbergastingly stupid. So much for random chance creating the turtles... Another theme is that this is more or less April O’ Neil’s movie. Not the ninja turtles. April is the main character. April is the focus of the film. The turtles are there, but they’re side characters in the same way the Autobots were side characters in the Transformers films.
The reason I’m bringing this up here now before the film is even out is because... well... I want it to fail. That’s a little selfish, I know, but I honestly don

If you haven’t heard yet, Warner Bros has announced that Man of Steel 2 aka Batman Vs Superman (featuring WonderWoman, Cyborg, and other characters from Justice League) will be released on May 6th 2016. AKA... the same day as Marvel’s Captain America 3.
I think I’ve reached a point where I’d rather Warner Bros give up now, since they clearly have no idea what they’re doing and seem grossly disinterested in trying to “build” this DC cinematic universe. I don’t want to see a watered down Justice League film before the actual Justice League movie. And I personally think it’s box office suicide to release it the same day as Captain America 3.

The State of Web Comics + My Intentions with SYACAbout SYACThe State of Web Comics + My Intentions with SYAC in Personal More Like This
One of the reasons I focus so much attention on Marvel and DC is because they’re big companies who should know better. They are made up by hundreds of people all chipping in little bits here and there, and for that there is no excuse for bad artwork, bad writing, or bad material in general. They are, to an extent, a bit of a cheap shot, but everyone can learn from their mistakes and I can offer my opinions about them and what I personally would do differently. And if you’re paying money for their products, I think you deserve good content in return, no?
SYAC is, at it’s core, about how comic artists and the comic industry works and poking fun at the various things they get wrong... and sadly that includes a lot of really hot button topics like Women’s Rights, Sexism, Racism, Homophobia, etc. Comics are no longer their own sheltered little thing... they’ve been THRUST into the mainstream audience and all of these problems we or
The Future of the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU)Robert Downey Jr. was scheduled to have a small cameo appearance in Captain America 3. RDJ didn’t like the small bit part and wanted a much larger roll. Since his contract was coming to a close, Marvel though this might be a good time to drop him (because despite what you might think Marvel is still a penny pinching miser when it comes to paying for stuff). Long story short, Marvel and RDJ have worked out a new deal which will have Tony Stark and Iron Man in a much larger capacity for what is being called “Phase 2” of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

“Lucy,” the new Scarlett Johansson R-rated action movie, is beating out The Rock’s “Hercules” reboot. Since we all know box-office statistics gained over a single weekend dictate how Hollywood organizes their films for the upcoming years, this seems to be once again another blow to the idea that women can’t be big picture draws.
This whole year movies have been coming out featuring strong female characters and lead actresses, and there CLEARLY is a market for that as all of those films have been box office blowouts. And that just makes me happy because it proves the industry WRONG on so many levels. Even the fact that some of the movies were reviewed pretty badly (such as “Maleficent”), the fact that the films are huge box office draws shows that there was a market ACHING for some new content just sitting there.

Captain America: Civil War - May 6, 2016
It’s already been confirmed that THIS version of Civil War will be vastly different from the comic book variation (owing largely to the fact that Marvel doesn’t own the rights to many of the supporting characters). Instead this version will be about some sort of government registration act to regulate super heros, and that Captain America and Iron Man will either try to run, or find issue with. So no, sorry, this won’t be Captain America vs Iron Man like we originally thought.

The Thing About Idols...This is something I've been thinking about for a while...The Thing About Idols... in Personal More Like This
This is a note about idols. A lot of people have idols, I think that's a fairly common thing, and has been for a long time. It's nothing new. What is new, of course, is the accessibility of those idols, and, somewhere along the line, this is where a certain problem has occurred.
See. The problem with idols, actually stems from the name itself. 'Idol' is meant to be reserved for something divine, something to be worshipped, something, in itself, perfect.
Somehow, the 'modern age' (which encompasses a long time, in truth), has hijacked that term, and used it to mean something different.
Because, of course, those we now call 'idols', are not divine. They are, in fact, human. And, we all know. Humans are flawed. Or... Not even that always. We're just fucking complicated.
Once upon a not so long ago, those 'flaws' and 'complications' were not so easy to see, so the perfect image was able to be maintained. However, with adva

I'm gonna stop being cryptic now, and I'm sure this'll come as no surprise that the band I'm talking about is MCR, and the people in question are, naturally, Frank and Gerard.

I dunno if it feels like a longer or shorter amount of time than that. Sometimes I have the scary notion that I can barely remember how it was before. But I do remember the weekend of the break up very clearly. Today it feels like it was just last week, not last year.
Of course, with all perfection of timing, my copy of the Greatest Hits came in the post today, complete with t-shirt designed after the one Gerard wore for their first show, and black arm band.
Ever the theatrical, to the last. It's like others have said, most bands just split up. MCR throw the band a funeral. Complete with eulogy.
I will leave this on a positive, as best I can.
Last year saw the return of the first band I ever loved (I still feel like it might have been my trade off), and early this year, when the anniversary of that bands break up came around one of the bands members tweeted:
"For the past 9 years today has always been a shit day. But today I'm smiling."
Yes, I Did Miss You. More Than You Know.The title for this journal is in reference to Gerard's first solo single, Action Cat. The line: "do you miss me?" probably had the same effect on me as it did a lot of people. It made me realise just how grateful I was that he was back, making music again. And, it made me realise how much I'd missed him, physically.Yes, I Did Miss You. More Than You Know. in Personal More Like This
Some people talk about meeting their hero's/idols/celebrities who have effected your life in some shape or form, like a checklist. Now, that is no bad thing, if you have a list of people you want to meet, that's great, good luck, and I hope you get to meet all of them, I sincerely, sincerely do.
What no one ever tells you though is, if there is someone you are particularly effected by or connected to, a checklist will never do. Because once will never, never be enough.

Revelations. Of Various Kinds.Hello friends. I hope you are all keeping wellRevelations. Of Various Kinds. in Personal More Like This
I will start this by saying the past couple of weeks have not been the easiest of times for me. But, in reality, I think it roots back further than a few weeks, and possibly further than I care to delve into. It's always strange when you start to trace it back.
I've explained, previously, about my anxiety and the way it effects me. In the past weeks, it's got bad, worse than before even. A consistent headache has plagued me during this time also, which, it turned out was a symptom of my anxiety.
I'm pleased to say I am finally getting ways with which to deal with this, which, though a little scary, is also quite a comforting thought.
And, over the past couple of days, I have been doing some musing over certain things, and I think I have come across some revelations, which, in many ways surprise me, but in other ways really do not.

It occurred to me that there were a couple of things I'd been meaning to share with you guys.
Now, only a few people on here have actually seen/met me in real life, but those that have will attest that, upon meeting me, one thing is very, very loud and clear.
I like Gerard.
Like, a lot... If the necklace doesn't give it away (which, I expect, is the first thing people notice), then various other clues will do it. One of my favourite things a friend of mine once said was 'You can't even look at you without seeing him somewhere!'
And, just sometimes, this immediate evidence of my being a fan leads to some pretty interesting conversations.
Going back a few weeks now. Interestingly, the weekend before Gerard got to London. I was out, shopping with my mum, and I happened to spot a comic book shop I hadn't been to before. So, you know, my mum gets dragged right on over there. She looks as interested as she poss

To write effective dialogue, there has to be a basic understanding of what communication is. Wikipedia sums it up nicely: the meaningful exchange of information between two or more people. It's easy but not at the same time.

When you read the work of a writer operating at the top of her game, you’re not seeing all the years of failed efforts, of work that wasn’t quite right, of work that was well-intentioned or built off of strong ideas but had slick and wobbly legs like a newborn fawn.
You see the author operating at a high level and you wonder: why am I not doing that?
The reality is:
You’re only seeing the island, not the heap of volcanic material that pushed it out of the sea.”

i'm on a hunt for prompts from all over now for concepts and themes and genres that are outside my scope of ability. if i want to immediately not do the prompt, that's the one. i'm having some luck on tumblr finding the good stuff and i'll be checking out the ones here at dA, too. looking forward to trying my hand at SadPrompts.
Preparation, however, will consist of me pretending that my house is a library and reading something every two weeks. My style is stale and dry and I need to do something else. i just have had a rough last couple of years and it is all i can do to keep going some days. i didn't read much, i didn't write much. not a fan of both, so i'm gonna do something about it.
by the way, did you know reddit has writing prompts? holy dogshit, a reason to go hang out in that dumpster!
this is cool:
quote time“I often feel as if I’m writing not for a particular audience but for a better version of myself—a version that can’t be dismissive or judgmental, a version that understands that in order to write the kind of fiction I strive to write, it’s essential to feel compassion for even the least sympathetic people. And if there’s one quality that links all of the writers who have been the most important to me, it’s the emotional generosity with which they treat all of their characters.”quote time in Personal More Like This

1. If you haven't read the work I work hard on since it's not on DA you can't judge and 2 what great piece of advice have you given me? The issue here is people seem to think people online are going to effect you,correct me if I am wrong but you guys arnt my friends so why besides the questions I do ask on here would I care what you think of me? I write for myself not to please anyone,and even if people didn't like my writing who cares I don't nessarly write for readers anyway.
i would say something salty but i just woke up. instead i'll ask this:
why write at all if only to please yourself? i don't buy it when anyone says that, not for a minute and not for a dollar. it's a false fucking modesty in addition to an outright lie. is it really so bad to write for people to read? are we the ones doing it wrong? really?&

Favorite segments so far;
- Guy on left: "No one ever smoked a pipe because of Popeye!" *later* "Well I did but let's move on..."
- "And it's not Thorella, or Thoriella, or Thorita, or Thora, it's just Thor."
- "Some people would say that this is an important thing, that we're not sexualising so much, right? She's definitely more covered than the other one, at least......It's the same for men, we make sure they have these perfect figures, actually, larger-than-life better."
- Sharia Law. Because Wonder Woman wearing modest clothes promotes Islam.

(unnecessary warning for massive amounts of profanity ahead)
I'm by no means innocent of using profanity in everyday life Typically I use it for emphasis, humor, or else when I'm righteously pissed at something and no bland, common word will express my feelings well enough. Sometimes I'm quoting someone. Sometimes I just feel like shouting "shit" at someone
because Tourrettesfor no reason. Plus some of them just sound funny when you say them in a quiet room (nevermind the awkward stares you'll inevitably get afterwards).

plzFrikkin' this so hard. Have had way too many people bitch at me about requests I supposedly owe them so now I just don't take anymore :iconwhywouldffffplz:plz in Personal More Like This
I mean people can drop requests on me all they want but there's absolutely no guarantee or obligation for me to do them Might end up drawing one that stands out to me but ignore another one, which is nothing personal against the person who pitched the idea.
of course art trades are an entirely different situation
and now someone will inevitably take this the wrong way and bitch me out
