  1. I made a post in Animation Theater! :D

      Eh, I liked how Harry Potter and the Methods of Rationality handled the Patronus better. Happy memories and positive thinking might be enough to repel Dementors, but I don't know about you but I rather find a way to destroy them. They should not exist, let alone have bubbling idiot wizards use them as frigging prison guards. But that's how wizards are in Harry Potter, bunch of incompetent idiots.

      @Kayzee This is meant to be a message of hope for people on the forums, though I get what you're saying.

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Yeah, but that kind of hope can only get you so far on it's own is what I am saying. We all face our own personal Dementors. Hope can repel them, but that makes that hope into a fuel that is slowly used up. But... Maybe, just maybe... By understanding what they really are and defying them, refusing to accept their existence, by fighting them with all your heart and mind, you can find a way to destroy them. That's what I believe.

  3. Some of the faucets at my college look like elephant heads when viewed from above. I find it kind of cute.

      I've seen hippopotamus faces before in sinks, but it requires a lot of imagination and staring, lol

      Perhaps there is a secret society of elephant worshipers in your college. Maybe if you turn the knobs in just the right way on one of them, a secret passage will open :lol:

      Gonna need some photographic evidence here...

  4. I personally hate the Times New Roman font. I was writing copyright lines at the bottom of a song I'm making in Musescore and it looked so icky because it was Times Roman and size 8. I changed it to Sylfaen, much better font IMO.

    1. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Could be worse. ;)

      I personally like the simpler fonts like Sydnie and VCR OSD Mono.

       

      I also like Segoe Print and Segoe Script; in my two latest YouTube uploads I used both of those fonts.

       

      I think, personally, that Times New Roman belongs on a physical newspaper and nowhere else, dammit.

    3. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Honesty I have been half thinking of switching to junicode just so I can use stuff like runic or maybe ogham. Or at least use them without switching fonts. Honestly not sure it will work, but it would be neat.

  5. Thinking about good childhood memories just now. My old church had an awesome playground and the prettiest pine trees, and a hall I named "Kitten Thirteen," where I liked to play songs on the organ. When Mom had choir practice I would come along and search the church for Barbie Explorer, and also play songs.

     

    Thinking about this now because it's Easter and I remember all those fun egg hunts and lady who dressed up as the Easter Bunny and she became one of my favorite people, I loved seeing her every year.

      Can't say I have particularly good memories of any churches. They always made me feel kind of uncomfortable and out of place. But I am a heathen after all, so that's probobly to be expected. Even so, I have to admit they are pretty buildings most of the time, if a bit creepy.

    3. Saeryen

      @Kayzee My church was Unitarian Universalist so it was more about caring for each other than one particular religion. We learned about different religions too which was cool.

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      Hehe, that does sound pretty neato type of place to go, though really it's as much about the public/organized/formalized nature of it then the religion involved. Unitarian Universalist sounds pretty open and relaxed, but I kinda think of religion to be more private and intimate then that. It's a bit like how some people might see a bunch of people going to a nudist club every sunday maybe? I donno. I obviously don't have a problem talking about religion and being public about what I believe. I just feel kind of uncomfortable with the idea of going to a special building for it and having people preach at me. But I guess not all churches are like that anyway. Honestly I would probobly feel the same kind of discomfort at an anime convention or something. Not that there is that much difference. :P

  6. So I just finished watching my first anime (Akatsuki no Yona, because my favorite singer did one of the songs) and it was really good! Plus it was my kind of show, really reminiscent of Avatar the Last Airbender (also a fave of mine).

     

    I'm not going to watch another right away (I want to work on creative projects) but I'm thinking I'd probably love Cardcaptor Sakura. I'd also like to watch Princess Tutu but I can't find a free and legal way to do so. )=

      First anime huh? You should really get in to it. There's a lot of good series out there. If you're watching CardCaptor Sakura next, brace yourself & make time for it because the 'unbutchered' version of it is a whopping 70 episodes + 2 movies (probably take a whole weekend if you marathon episodes).

    3. Saeryen

      Saeryen

      @Kayzee I think PMMM is bit too dark and gritty for me.

      @Animebryan Lol I don't marathon. I need to do more variety of stuff during the day. And I think it'd be okay, AkaYona ended too quick and now I have to read the manga.

    4. Kayzee

      Kayzee

      @Saeryen Where did you hear that? Come now, do you think a show with a cute animal mascot like this would be dark and gritty?

      Look at that cute face! It just wants to make a contract with you...

  7. No song can be complete without every note, harmony and inflection. This world being a song, everyone in it is a vital part of the song and no one's existence is pointless, because without that one person, the entire song is so much less special.

     

    TL;DR You are important and don't let anyone or anything tell you otherwise.

      (Next time, I'll not say anything when I'm afflicted by insomnia drain...)

      Spoiler

       

      But then, some parts of the song are DTMF tones and sirens going off too...

       

      lol

       

      I just binge-watched a single YouTuber's entire upload gallery of EAS Mock up videos; some were really intense (and yep @Kayzee one of them was about the Yellowstone eruption); but any of the ones about nuclear disaster or that led up to such were in the most dramatic category.

       

      Of course, the most ridiculous fall on the two tsunamis, one affecting the entire East Coast, and the ones affecting LA and San Francisco; the former was over four thousand miles wide and ten thousand feet tall, the latter two waves were less ridiculous in terms of height but still higher than any tsunami ever recorded at 5,280 feet high.

       

      There was one involving mutated bees, one with killer clowns, one involving Snapchat, and another involving a militia invading Detroit. There was also tainted turkeys for Thanksgiving, and Krampus stealing toys, robbing banks and depositing bombs under the Christmas trees, as well as lycanthropes assaulting trick - o - treaters.

       

      A fire in DC involving hazardous chemicals, and an odd electronic signal that made people collapse, act violently, and then take control of missile silos that the Pentagon was in control of, to launch warheads onto various US cities.

       

      I'm really getting into this rhythm and prose, huh?

       

      Terrorists invaded and attacked the Super Bowl venue, before blowing it and the entirety of Minneapolis up with a nuclear bomb, and ISIS destroyed four iconic attractions before setting sights on One World Trade Center.

       

      In one of the two direct nuclear strikes, President Trump gets killed, and a total of sixty warheads strike the US between the two videos, all launched by North Korea.

       

      Obviously, all these videos were just mock ups of how the Emergency Alert System would interrupt with alerts; there's no action shown (but there are sirens in the background of some of the videos to give the impression that the warnings are sounding off in the affected area/s...

       

      38 in total, and good grief, I need sleep. lolz

       

      Sorry about that, @Saeryen...

      @PhoenixSoul I don't know why you posted that on a post where I was trying to be kind to members of the community.

    4. Tarq

      Tarq

      Yeah, it was pretty uncool to hijack the update. That really should have been sent in a pm PS.

  8. Today, Ariacata begins Her migration to the north. Her sister Maiacata migrates to the south.

     

    (Ariacata is the summertide i.e. spring/summer, and Maiacata is the wintertide, fall/winter.)

  9. I put an animation on YouTube! I'm taking a course in college and did this one just for fun.

     

  10. I LOVE Track 9 on my OST, I could listen to it all day =)

  11. I haven't been feeling that well, so to get into the Catty Lands mood (which I haven't been in for awhile) I'm listening to my OST

    1. PhoenixSoul

  12. I got another error when I edited my previous status update, and when I tried to edit my post, which was unsuccessful.

    1. Rikifive

      Rikifive

      Seems like something has glitched- I also have problems all over the place...

    2. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Yeah. I replied to a status update and something goofed; it somehow thought I had tried to reply two (or more) consecutive times, and it kept my reply in record as well. It did send the one reply I had made, yes but this is concerning...

       

      Are we being hacked here? I WON'T HAVE IT! I've already dealt with bad actors on so many different platforms; I don't need this nonsense now, nor ever. Must I terminate ALL my relationships with online platforms, like I've already done with the likes of Twitch!?

       

      (Edit: It pulled that same BS here with FALSE MULTIPOSTING WITH ONE CLICK).

  13. I got an error with Error Code EX145 when I tried to visit my own profile. I can't access the forums on my iPhone. And when I tried to make a topic about this I got an error too.

     

    EDIT: Okay, the topic was made. I thought it wasn't due to the error.

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      I'm getting the same BS error.

       

      If not a hack, a complete failure of codex execution. Either of those are really bad.

  14. Story of Seasons: Trio of Towns is the only world in which you eat fruit juice with a spoon. No, really.

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      What, is it frozen or something? lolz

    2. Saeryen

      Saeryen

      @PhoenixSoul I don't know.

       

      Also, cooking anything sounds like "chop, chop, chop, ding," including brewing a pot of tea.

    3. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      Yeah, that screams "I'M AN ASSET FLIP!!!" in my mind...lolz

  15. Kaladoria Island is located just southwest of Europe. In the capital, Em Katre, there exists a house of dimensional portals so that my friends from other universes (i.e. my favorite characters) may come and go as they please.

      I just let my friends live inside my head :P

    2. Saeryen

      @lonequeso Well, I do believe in the "inner world" which is like an alternate dimension that's connected to and created by every soul, so yeah, same difference.

    3. lonequeso

      lonequeso

      I was referencing a Nirvana song =p

  16. Why does no one ever think of transforming monsters or villains into something harmless, like kittens or bunnies or Shiroya (lol)? The threat is gone and you didn't have to kill anyone.

      You'd have to not only transform them, but alter their personality and alter/erase their memories. Even then it's magic, and for every spell there's an unspell so there's a chance someone or something could revert them back to their former self. 

       

      @Takeo212- Yes you could! No killing whatsoever. Just smash robots to free cute, cuddly animals :D

       

      You can make a game with no killing, but in many cases it is necessary in the story. Not ever character has magic powers or is in a universe that's magically devoid of killing. The more realistic a game is, the more likely things and people are going to die. Not always though. Batman has a code against killing so enemies just get knocked out. Human enemies anyway.

      @lonequeso A reason my games are less about fighting and more about adventuring/puzzle solving, though I don't mind games with combat as long as it's not too gory. I do see your point though.

    4. lonequeso

      lonequeso

      Exploring is important for me, too. That's why I love giant open worlds full of stuff :lol:

  17. Well, I guess I'm one of the only ones who plays the forum games for fun and not the post count since no one else seems to be regularly posting.

      @lonequeso Whoa, I hope you don't mean anyone here. I only posted this because I miss having fun with you guys, not because it's my whole life. And it's also hard for some people to talk person to person. I am introverted and I have a really hard time meeting new people because I don't know if we have anything in common. I find it a bit easier to talk online because I know the people on these forums have similar interests to mine.

    3. lonequeso

      lonequeso

      I meant anyone whose life revolves around social media. If that's not you, then I'm not talking about you. 

    4. Tarq

      Tarq

      @lonequesoI think it was a bigger thing in the past but even now there's a remnant of the idea that someone with a higher post count is more credible/knowledgeable or whathaveyou. I wouldn't disagree with you that that side of social media isn't interesting to us grandpa's (It is a useful tool for staff to gauge activity across the forums though) but its also not particularly beneficial to be so negative. After all, its not so long ago that people gave the same 'advice' about anyone who played videogames.

  18. You want cat, Sirius Black?

  19. Shiroya is the sweetest, most beautiful boy in the world. :wub:

  20. Can you upload fan art to the gallery?

    1. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      I don't see why not.

      I mean, it is your art, even if it is fan art...

    2. Tarq

      Tarq

      As long as it doesn't breach any of the other forum rules (offensive, sexually explicit, etc.) then you can upload whatever you want there.

  21. I don't know about anyone else, but the forum was down for me all day today. Not anymore! =)

  22. Trying again 'cause I really want someone to play forum games with me. If you already said you don't want to, ignore this message.

    1. Takeo212

      Takeo212

      What kind of games do you want to play? I'm not active enough to really play anything, but I don't mind popping in now and then~

    2. Saeryen

      I replied to Make a "Wish" Foundation and Song Skills earlier this month. Thanks =)

    3. PhoenixSoul

      PhoenixSoul

      I have a forum game that I had started that no one else has replied to myself.

      Room for one more, and then some.

      Song Title is the name.

  23. So earlier I tried to talk about Shiroya from Destiny Ninja 2. SO CUTE! Such a sweetheart! I am in love! :wub:

      This site has more info about him. Warning: there are spoilers for his route and for the game as a whole.

      It's okay! @lonequeso I'll gladly wait till you feel like it

  25. Shiroya from Destiny Ninja 2 is so sweet and adorable and I love him so much. <3
