Happy Birthday Gumi!Her birthday is in 26th of June. Here in GMT+7 and in Japan, it's 26th June already.More Like This
Gumi’s voice is provided by Megumi Nakajima, most famous for her voice acting roles in various anime series. The official name of the software itself is Megpoid, while the avatar we know as Gumi is illustrated by Masami Yuuki. Let’s take a look at what’s happened over the past year!
Early last year, INTERNET Co.,Ltd confirmed additional voicebanks for Gumi, known as Gumi Extend. The new voicebanks consisted of Megpoid Adult, Power, Sweet and Whisper. They were later released on the 21st of October, 2011. Gumi also received a revamp of her VOCALOID 2 voicebank, Megpoid Native, which runs on the newer VOCALOID 3 software. Megpoid Native was released on the 16th of March this year. Physical copies of Megpoid are no longer available for purchase, although she is still available for pur

This is another song that relates to the 'Story of Evil'/Evilious Chronicles in some way ( I honestly have no idea what it means in relation to it at all. They have WAY too many songs in that series.) It's cool but kind of creepy...
A Tale of Six Trillion Years and One Night- IA: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zkHgpKcX5FY
I like most of IA's songs. It's nice. And the PV is pretty as well.
The Highschool Girl Next to Me- GUMI: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpQfB6NgYao
This is SOOOO CUTE!!! And the funniest song EVER. The guy that does the male vocals cracks me up because he sounds like an extreme wrestler or something . If you want a good laugh, LISTEN TO THIS!!!
Why we don't allow what we don't allow.i've notice a bit, not a lot~, but a bit of questioning of why we don't allow stuff.More Like This
the BIGGEST reason for that is flooding of inboxes. right now we are currently accepting 32 deviations per day.
i've noticed in bigger groups that the more they accept, the less chance there is of a picture being seen by someone else, unless they are on the first page of the stack :S.
32 deviations about 1 and a bit pages in stack mode, which is a good amount to look at~ gives the deviations a fair chance of being seen in the stack, whether the setting is the 'recently submitted' or the other setting..
When we allowed EVERYTHING we practically had to accept close to 70 pictures a day, and it was brutal~ especially since a lot of people didn't put their pictures into the right folder (which we actually tell them, unlike other groups). not only that but we got a looooooooooot of complaints coming from people of 'unfinished work' and 'fail mmd screenshots' and plenty others.
I know what you are thinking;

CJ's Wisdom: Friendship And EnemiesYou're at a disadvantage with others?More Like This
A failure in their eyes; execrated over the olden?
Fear not, as some often fade altogether like footprints in the sand.
Salted wounds can re-open, but also can be closed at will.
Some drop like flies, eventually dying off without lingering basis.
Leaches being occasional, remember to prevent the incising before it's inevitable.
Few will prove golden, as herds will flee concerning situations negligible.
But never doubt fate, as a new chapter arises in replacement.
While turmoil lasts momentarily, new paths of awakening last for eternity.
Bring fourth bulk ideals regarding sociability among our world.
Recall that meaningless tyrannizing never braces an individual.
Never let insult become infectious, let alone abandonment.
Whatever leaves shall be filled, and eventually forgotten.
Karma creates vengeance, which shouldn't be done byself.
Pursue ahead, keep straight forward.
And with positive outlooks, smile.

Two Minus Two“Always together, no matter what.”More Like This
That’s the vow that the twins made.
They were inseparable, those two.
They only looked slightly different
And that was what they were known for.
They were loved by their home, and they loved their home back.
But one day, as the twins were together like always
Something suddenly happened.
One twin suddenly fell to the floor
Making the other twin worry.
“Are you alright?”
The standing twin asked the other half.
The twin, now weak and with a fatal expression,
Managed a smile.
“My dear twin,” the poor thing said,
“There are people here
That don’t like us. They fear our home and want it gone.
They think that destroying us will destroy our home,
But that’s not true.
There will be terror after this terror
But I hope our home will stay strong.
I want you to know, my wonderful twin
That even if we die standing here now
We’ll live forever in our people’s hearts.”
And with that, the tw

REMARK: THIS JOURNAL MAY NOT BE VERY IMPORTANT.
This subject became irritating. every now and then some people come to my page asking if drawing is haram (forbidden) or not in Islam. the question itself is not what irritates, but some of the people asking the question. From my experience in dealing with these questioners, I could put them into the four following categories:
1. the Muslims who sincerely want to know the answer. some of these like drawing and wish to have a positive answer. but when they hear different fatwas (religious rulings) by different scholars, they feel confused. these people are welcome to ask. I can not tell them whether drawing is halal or haram. what I do usually is provide a link of an article by a Muslim scholar for them to read.
2. the Muslims who are literally lazy -I can't find a better word- to do their work in da'wah (presenting Islam to the world). these people don't do their j

Help! I have a Mary Sue!More Like This
You know that you have a Mary Sue when she upsets the monochromatic color scheme of my Writer's Guides.
Mouse over blue text to see a note.
Internet communities often lash out at writers who create Mary Sues. Declaring the writing to be below their standards, they proceed to punish the creators. They mock the characters, verbally abuse the writers, and write hyperbolically about how much they wish the characters would die.
Bullying writers (who may be very young) is only going to make them afraid to write—and therefore improve—or share their work. Not only that, but it discourages other writers from speaking for fear of public mockery, and it may silence the voices that could someday become great.
If you've directly or indirectly suffered from the abuse of such individuals, let me first apologize on their behalf. I don't care if your story stinks so much that it can be smelled from fifty miles away; mocking you
