a kid from my high is fucking trending on facebook because of a stupid petition to get a senior photo of him holding a cat into the yearbook…

UPDATE!!

My principal decided to join him in a photo.

The new photograph will go in the yearbook as a way to raise awareness for American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and rescue animals like Mr. Bugglesworth and Vivienne.

Compiled Memories- Directed by Mike Inel

Three masterpiece indie horror RPGs, re-imagined into an anime.”

I happened to come across this on youtube and fell in love with it immediately. It looks amazing. The detail, the art, everything. It’s a shame that I couldn’t show every scene ( Seeing as how Tumblr only allows ten pictures )

According to the video, the volume 1 DVD will be coming out April 31, 2015. Hopefully, I’ll have enough money to buy it by then! I can’t wait!

( P.S. The second volume will have Misao, Ao Oni, and April Fools )

Ten of my favourite free downloadable games; mostly of RPGMaker. Not in any order. They all have interesting plots, certain uniqueness and in most cases I adore the art, sound and music. It’s mostly about plot though. 

Crooked Man is the only one on the list above I didn’t get all the ends for; I couldn’t. COULDN’T do it.

Some harsh but very very true words

When people let me review their portfolios (on career day or open days at my game design school) I explicitly ban them from commenting during the review… …because otherwise they will follow the impulse to downplay everything I see in an attempt at being humble."this is an old image…"
"I’m not happy with that one…""this is just a sketch…"
"I did this really quickly…""there is better stuff on later pages…"It’s totally understandable to have those impulses. The quality of art is not empirical data and therefore impossible to measure. Good art, bad art, it all comes down to standards. And you don’t want to come off as naive or self-absorbed.But just don’t do it. Don’t talk yourself down in front of others. In the best case you have someone supportive who now thinks “damn, this person needs to be prepped up all the time. Do I really want to work with somebody like that” or in worst case “now that you say it, yeah, this is kinda lame/rushed/unfinished/lazy, go away.”You can only submit what you have. If that is not enough, then it’s not enough. Your attitude will not change that. But if it is enough, you can do serious harm by not being confident of who you are now.This means appreciating what you are able to do right now and have a clear vision of what you want to learn, be confident that you will learn it in time. Be proud.

This is really important.  Eliminate this urge.  Eliminate it professionally, when having contact with people in a position to buy your work.  Eliminate it socially, when you just share your work for fun.  Destroy this urge as thoroughly as you possibly can.
Because when you have done that, you’ll find that you feel at least 25% less shitty about your own work.  You lose the urge to do it.  You stop reinforcing those negative thoughts, and they retreat.  They may never go away completely (although they might!) but this is good practice for ignoring those thoughts flat-out.
Don’t shit-talk yourself.  Even if you can’t be SO PROUD, don’t ever try to influence anyone’s opinion toward your work in the negative.
Try to love your work.  Try to see what you learned from each piece, even if it’s a failure.  If you feel that you learned nothing, appreciate the fact that just spending time on it is honing your skills and giving you valuable practice.
i used to be super not-confident in my own work.  When I stopped pointing out the flaws in my own stuff, I felt better about it almost immediately.

THIS!  I see so many people post art or stories and say it’s just a drabble or doodle, it probably isn’t any good, people aren’t going to like it. 
There are always going to be people who are willing to tear you down.  Don’t do their work for them.  Even if you can’t say good things, it doesn’t mean you have to say negative things.

You would be surprised with how many people in your life could be going through depression at this very moment.  People hide it like a paper bag over their heads out of fear of being judged, made fun of, seen as weak, or just not taken seriously.  Depression should not be taken lightly, it holds us down from our purpose and potential in life.  Those who tell you that it doesn’t exist have never experienced depression in their life, therefore not understanding the symptoms and how it’s something that cannot be fixed in a day!  So if you think you are depressed or if you think you know someone else who is, please talk to a friend, a family member, or anyone else in your life that you trust - never overlook the possibility of seeing a doctor for more professional help!!  Your feelings are real, your feelings are shared upon millions.  Don’t hide it, talk to someone about it.  With the right help, you can rediscover your confidence and begin life anew with our undying love and support!

We are right here!!

I found out that if you give your tomato plant adequate water and fertilizer you run the risk of it never flowering because consistently comfortable conditions convince the plant that there is no environmental pressure to spread and reproduce.

You can literally be a helicopter tomato parent and grow a spoiled directionless manchild tomato plant.

fun fact: the reason that the plural of goose is geese but the plural of moose is not meese is because goose derives from an ancient germanic word undergoing strong declension, in the pattern of foot/feet and tooth/teeth, wherein oo is mutated to ee. however ‘moose’ is a native american word added to the english lexicon only ~400 years ago, and lacks the etymological reason to be pluralized in that way.

Oh baby.  Keep talking dirty to me.

not gonna lie, that sounds awful and really troublesome

This is so true. I love this description so much. 

And then one of them has some random ad playing noise on it and I CAN NEVER FUCKING FIND IT!

so is writers block when you accidentally close them all at the same time?

Forced reboot to install updates.

Moon flowers, yes? My grandmother loved these, we have them planted in our garden :)

looks like something out of Coraline :o

I have a story. We used to have a bunch of these outside our house. They really do open up like this as soon as it gets dark and they release this wonderful smell. My family used to go outside every day and watch them open. But what they don’t tell you is that bugs love them. When it gets hot out they’ll crawl inside them to keep cool. So one day little me, I was probably like 13, put my nose right down by it so I could smell it as it was opening… and a huge ass jumping spider launched itself at my face. Don’t trust the moon flowers. They’re full of horror.

That’s true in more ways than one. Moonflowers are actually datura - angel’s trumpets. They’re very toxic, and have been use for hundreds of years as a poison and hallucinogen.
