  • Meet Biddy, The Travelling Hedgehog

    Those of us who want to travel but do not have the time or the money finally have a solution – we can travel in spirit together with Biddy the hedgehog, a little guy on Instagram whose travel photos are becoming insanely popular.

    Toni DeWeese and Tom Unterseher, Biddy’s two loving owners in Oregon, take him on adventures almost every week throughout the Pacific Northwest. He visits mountains, forests, waterfalls, and the occasional donut shop.

    Are you always this sentimental?

    Had a good day.

    You had the Alliance on you, criminals and savages… Half the people on the ship have been shot or wounded including yourself, and you’re harboring known fugitives.

    No skin thick enough: The daily harassment of women in the game industry

    This article is heartbreaking. And true.

    There is a reason I throttled back on doing a lot of creative gaming content a few years ago. And why I still avoid taking some jobs in the gaming world when they’re offered to me. And why, when we have a female host on any of our Geek and Sundry gaming shows, we have to monitor the comments on YouTube extra, to remove the many comments that are offensive and pollute our community’s spirit of equality. Because I hate that shit. 

    There is an endemic acceptance in the gamer world that “well, it comes with the territory” when a woman receives threats and harassment and the hateful anonymous internet dialogue is focused on her body and whether they would “do” her or not. I don’t know why this became okay. It’s a vocal minority that has been given way too much power over the industry dialogue, and I am so happy to see more and more articles like this shining the light on what reasonable gamer men and women have been conned into accepting as a given.

    NOTHING is a given in this world. And frankly, it taints the art form we so love and keeps it back from becoming more respected and more diverse to not at least TRY to fight it. Gaming deserves more than complacency in this area.

    Even posting this link will cause me to receive hateful Tumblr PMs. I can always tell when something I write gets linked on certain places on the internet (like 4 Chan or a few other forums of troll-hood), because I’ll immediately get dozens of hate mails along the veins of what is posted in this article. 

    Well, I’m a lucky one to be prominent enough to have 10 supporters for every hater. I mostly feel sorry for girls and women who aren’t in my position, who may just give up on gaming when they’re too beaten down to fight anymore.

    We have to change that. For the good of what we love doing, gamers! Okay, back to work :)

    Drawing with PEN, from Dynamic Sketching week 1

    Dynamic Sketching is definitely a very popular Art Center class.  It was first introduced by Norm Schureman and now Peter Han is the man who continues Norm’s awesome legacy.  This is the one class that taught me to be a designer and a thinker.  Having a good drawing skill is a must, but you must also be a problem solver, smart and have good ideas.  One way to convey your idea effectively is through sketches.  And you can do this quickly if you train yourself to sketch with pen.  

    Pros of using pen:
    1.  faster (no noodling or erasing)
    2.  more confident sketches
    3.  it looks cool  

    Cons:
    1.  can’t erase!  (which force you to learn to be more confident)
    *yep, only one con!!!

    This is the first week exercise from Dynamic Sketching — learning how to create texture.  The idea is to create value from 100 to 0 (black to white). Do as many different texture as you like.  It does take a lot time at first.  And like all basic things, it can be tideous but very important to learn.
    Try it out and have fun.

    ps. I use Sharpie Ultra Fine Point permanent marker.  I like how the ink flow.  It’s also very cheap.  Double win!

    are you fucking kidding me

Oh god thank fucking christ.

I usually don’t reblog these, but I feel like some of my followers could probably use the reassurance. I definitely have these kinds of thoughts sometimes.

so i’m not crazy for randomly thinking such thoughts? what a relief!

Edgar Allan Poe had a name for it too: The Imp of the Perverse. he compared the impulses to a demon that urges people to do the wrong thing simply because it can be done

The compulsion to jump from high places is called “l’appel du vide" in French. The call of the void. I think it’s specific to that one instance, but I think it’s a cool phrase for this phenomenon in general.
I think about this with random sharp objects laying around, too. “What if I just jammed this into my eye or throat right now? … oh god WHAT.” Just… fucking christ, brain. Don’t.

Reblogging this again because most people don’t/never know how normal these thoughts are, and that can be a major source of stress. It’s okay. You’re okay. Just, you know, don’t follow through on that shit.

    However loving his parents may have seemed, he [Simon] knew that, scratch the surface, and they’d scream and run away. And here he’s confronted with a guy who is just everyting he thinks is wrong about a person, who comes back for him when the chips are down because he’s on his crew. To me, that’s a  real parent, and that is an extremely beautiful thing to get to, and I think it’s very real… But the most important thing about ‘Safe’ was that relationship.
