HOLY CRAP! A WILD BLUECREATURE APPEARED!

Life used SUMMER!

 It’s super effective! Bluecreature Fainted!

It’s not very effective against Peachsupreme! Peachsupreme used Blog posts! Something Original is pleased!

Sethimine is fast asleep. Summer had no effect on him!

Hello everyone. I’m not going to say i’m back from a long hiatus, because i think i’ve said that too many times now. But i am back, Peach mentioned to me that she had posted a couple times, i wanted to see them, realized i hadn’t posted at all this year, and now i’m here. Writing a blog post about nothing. well, Peach’s drawings on the front page remind me of something, as well as bringing with that reminder a feeling of guilt.

When summer first started, i had wanted to make a pokemon comic series, one about members of team rocket during the original gameboy game, but they’d be good guys helping Red take down Giovanni without Red ever figuring it out. it would have 8 parts, each about 20 to 30 pages, and i was even jumping ahead to a continuation of the story into the gold and silver games. It sounded really cool in my head, i could imagine what each scene would look like on paper, and i started work on it. But it’s just too much work. i got three pages laid out, gave them to peach to draw the people because i can’t draw manga-style people, was going to get them back so i could color them in GIMP, and then i just stopped. i’m never going to get finished with this.

It sounds a lot like Pokemon Teal, tbh. Something like this is too time-consuming for one or two people. It’s still too much to organize four people to work on it equally. Imagine spending a week laying out a few pages, waiting to get those pages back, spending another two weeks or more coloring and shopping everything to look good, then having to repeat that process several times to get one entry, and then making seven (or 15, with the sequel series) more entries.. It would never get done. So I just want to give up. I’ll have far less free time than i do now starting in a few weeks, as i’ll be in florida, and then i’ll be working (at a real job!), and then I’ll be at school AND I’ll be working. So I just can’t. I’d like to. I’d like other people to see this image i have in my head, but I just can’t.

So, i’m back, and i’m sitting here thinking about what i can start writing about because otherwise i’ll just be making another “after a long hiatus” speech in January next year. So like, yea. There’s only one thing left i can think to do, as its getting pretty late and i can’t make complex thoughts when i’m tired.

Pictures!

I decided to test out these captions to see what it would do. i hoped that my comments would show up if you rested your mouse on the image, but alas, they just show up at the bottom.

Summer update :)

*sets down luigi’s mansion dark moon*
Heya there! After my computer’s hard drive crashed and I almost lost all of my drawing that i’ve been working on, i decided that I should stop being lazy and start posting more.
So over the summer i’m going to try posting at least twice a week, maybe i’ll make a schedule but don’t count on that -_-,
I’ll just give you a little preview…
1. I have been working on a new top ten, so that should show up soon as i’m, like 33% done with that
2. Lots of video game art to come, but that’s nothing new.
3. I’d like to start talking about upcoming games or games that just came out, like with my gaming corner… maybe, but i’ll defiantly have videos of trailers and art to show.
4. I’ll still be posting on my deviantart and on my site, which I should work on a bit :#)
5. Finally i’m working on a special comic for this site (OMG!) but it’s still in the works so stay tuned for more details!
6. I’ll work on the summer picture for this year… soon…
so anyway, hopefully i’ll post some stuff on friday, but until then here’s funny video with a hint to the next top 10 list!

Tangent time!

so, i was bored today and decided to pass the time by checking out the front page of youtube, because unless it has something to do with politics, guns, or pewdiepie, the content on the front page is generally pretty interesting. I happened accross this video, which starts out being about doodling in math class, but the girl in the video goes off to talk about so many different things and then always comes back to the logic of parabolas. I thought it was pretty cool, and i had a lot of trouble with things like parabolas and ellipses and whatnot last year in algebra 2, so it was also kinda informative.

And that’s pretty much it. thanks for watching.

Blackout

Tomorrow, January 18, multiple popular sites like reddit, deviantart, all of Major League Gaming, all of Mojang, etc., as well as hundreds of small time websites will be taking their sites offline. This is due to two bills being reviewed by congress called PIPA and SOPA.

*disclaimer: take what you are about to read from me with a grain of salt, it it an interpretation of an interpretation, and I am no lawyer.

**disclaimer #dos: if you don’t like legal things and their complexity, skip to the bold text.

a more complete analysis can be found here: http://blog.reddit.com/2012/01/technical-examination-of-sopa-and.html but here’s mine: the restrictions will do very little positive wise and destroy websites like reddit. here’s sort of why, in a snippet from the article i pasted above:

  • SOPA Domestic Internet Site – A domestic site is defined as a site that corresponds to a ‘domestic domain name’, or if there is no domain name, a domestic IP address.1 A domestic domain name is defined as a domain registered or assigned by a registrar or other authority that is located within the United States.2 Some common examples of domestic top-level domain names are ‘.com’, ‘.org’, and ‘.us’.
  • SOPA Foreign Internet Site or PROTECT IP Non-domestic domain name – A foreign site is very simply defined as a site that is not a domestic site.3 4 Under this definition, any site not using a domestic domain name is a foreign site.

Under these broad definitions, domestically hosted sites such as ‘redd.it’ and ‘bit.ly’ can be defined as foreign internet sites. On the other side of the coin, foreign hosted sites such as wikileaks.org and thepiratebay.org can be defined as ‘domestic’, since their domain names are registered through authorities located in the U.S.”

Basically the bill goes as follows. A website that is promoting or has members that are promoting copyright infringement and are classified as a foreign domain can be subject to takeover or shutdown by the attorney general. Even a domestic domain will be required to remove all comments post etc. From their site. And not just a site, but the entire domain. (As in, all of WordPress instead of each individual site)

Imagine YouTube having to remove every user that has promoted copyrighted material(ie, any popular music they didnt ask the maker to use) from their website? As well as scrubbing every comment and video those people made from the website as well.

Many people think this will freeze social networking websites like YouTube, WordPress, Facebook, and especially Reddit and tumblr, popular social sites that would be practically outlawed by the new bill. Some even say that this is the first step in forcing the freedom of speech from the internet.

I’d like to mention that a Chinese Google search for tiannanmen square will bring you nothing but black lines of what used to be text. This is because the Chinese government is telling all the websites to block access to the events records. If our government can block what we say when we infringe on copyrights, they might just end up able to block anything we infringe on. sound like the first amendment anyone?

the bills are soposed to restrict piracy, but so many pirating sites would have domestic domains (and even more considering they could all jus switch to domestic if the bill is passed), that it would do far more bad than good.

I kinda want to get in on this, but i don’t really know how to actually take the blog offline, (silly me) soooo….

IF YOU ARE READING THIS BLOG ON THE DATE OF JANUARY 18, 2012 BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 8:00 A.M EST- 8:00 P.M. EST, CLOSE THIS WINDOW. PRESS THE POWER BUTTON ON YOUR COMPUTER. SLAP YOURSELF IN THE FACE. and have a nice day!

Update: Wendsday, Jan 18, 2012, 4:35 pm. anyone who visits this site today should visit sites like google, wikipedia, and minecraft.net before turning off their computer. Wiki and Minecraft both are shut down completely each with a message about why, (minecraft’s message is simply: PIPA AND SOPA? HOW ABOUT NOPA!) while google’s ever-changing logo is censored in black.

Also, congressional supporters have been abandoning the bill over the past 24 hours, my guess being that they will lose any voters that own a computer if they support it. The proposer of the SOPA bill, Lamar Smith, will still try to go through with it, saying that people are overreacting and that the blackout is an idiotic thing to do, removing their services from their communities for a whole day.

Update #2: still the 18th, now 8:01 The OPEN act (another acronym!) has been proposed that seems to handle all of SOPA and  PIPA’s problems in a much more tech-savvy way. Visit http://keepthewebopen.com/sopa-vs-open to find out more.

I apologize for such a long article. i hope i didn’t bore too many of you.

Now i’ll go to slap myself in the face.

woah! too cool for words!!

ash shares my birthday!

heyi was looking at the pokemon ash hasowned thoughout the seriesand saw the triviasection, ithought, ok  this might be interesting… and i came upon this:

The date of Ash’s birth, according to Takeshi Shudo’s anime novelizations, is 10 years, 10 months, and 10 days exactly prior to the day he began his Pokémon journey. Being that the same novelization declares that Pokémon Trainers obtain their first Pokémon in April of the year following their 10th birthday, and the anime itself began broadcast on the first of that month in 1997 in Japan, Ash’s birthday, if April 1 was the first day of his journey, would be May 22.

i just thought that was so cool! oh, yeaand i found out that theguy who plays brock plays james and the girlwho plays misty plays jesse also!

please guys ive made the last 3 posts and 2 comments just come and join me! PLEASE? 🙂
