Members of Congress are living off food stamps for a week to protest Republican cuts. It’s a challenge for them, but GOP cuts would hurt millions of everyday Americans

Why does this not have more publicity. This needs it!

I want a reality tv show where politicians have to live in poverty for a month. They have to live in Government housing, shop with food stamps, and get only a limited amount of money for clothes. Because here, they still have all their trappings, lilke nice cars and thousand dollar suits. I want them in Walmart jeans trying to determine if they can afford a carton of milk. 

If we had that, just watch how quickly things would change

The problem still remains that “living in poverty for a month” wont change anything, unless the people doing it are really emphatic people. Because when you only do it for a determinate amount of time, you`ll always have the bright hope that, somewhere in your near future, you`ll get out of that shithole you brought onto yourself. 
So sure, you got it a bit tight, but in just a month from now you can enjoy your 5 star meals and luxe cars.

If you have no prospects of a better tomorrow, you`ll outlook on the situation changes. Its not about what you eat, drink, spend or wear. Its about your mindset that this is your life. You cannot get better stuff tomorrow, or even the day after tomorrow. You`ll probably get stuck with a dead-end job working overtime without pay for less than minimum wage if your boss can get away with it. And you gotta do that, because if you dont, they`ll just trade you in for the next guy in line, and then you dont even have money to spend on the choice to get that carton of milk.

So while its a good token of effort, its the bare minimum of a start to begin to understand the situation :l

Seriously tho, regarding this post from tumblr user acnana that talks about having an Animal Crossing game where your town goes into a spirit world and you have “cute bat and ghost villagers you can interact with.”

This cute game (that already exists) has basically all of that AND MORE.

You are an aspiring wizard going to magic school in this game. You have a dorm that you can decorate and you can fish and collect bugs and decorate the garden in your dorm building and you can actually cast spells and stuff! PLUS once a month your town enters ~mystery time~ where you can have special magic lessons and catch exclusive bugs and fish and the day after, a guest will come to your town and you get to solve a quest. 

You can also date the villagers!

It’s comparative to AC:WW and unfortunately we will probably never get to see any of its sequels - like the hit game Magician’s Quest: Town of Magic which has a shopping mall as well as new spells and villagers plus you can also open up your own store.

Here’s pics from that one:

Basically I just REEEEALLY wish the new one would be localized!

I TOLD Y’ALL ABOUT ENCHANTED FOLK
I TOLD YOU, SON

I really don’t get why people find Animal Crossing that engrossing when Enchanted Folk managed to do things that not even the 3DS version did.

To be fair, it never even appeared on the radar here in Holland. This is the first ever time I’ve heard about it.

Then again, it being a DS game, chances would be that we would just download it, like you said in your follow up post

I`m not fond of the egg shaped minerals, I prefer spheres, but seeing them packed together like this makes me so happy :D

I’ve received a lot of letters from artists asking to check out their artwork and their blog, and I’ve noticed that a lot of them openly write unhealthy amounts of negative comments about their artwork, it was super depressing, honestly.  :(
Confidence plays a very very important role as an artist, it’s what helps us learn and grow without the constant feeling of doubt and jealousy!  You are a unique individual who must go down your own unique path, and as scary as it sounds, you can’t rely on others to hold your hand all the way through.  You are the only one who can get yourself to where you need to go, and beating up your artwork is not the way!  Trust yourself and your abilities to make a change, and you can do anything!!

Love your art, love yourself!

As you might know, I love to spread the word of the wise.

This is the best thing about going to conventions or fairs in “uniform”, walking around in the normal world to grab a soda.

Why the fuck do I only know one other Royal Knight fan and we’re not even talking that often. Why the heckedy hella fuck do I not know any other hardcore digimon fans?? Talk to me ppl, is there even a fandom for this?

well sure, I`m not a big Royal Knight nut, but thats because I skipped the 4th season where they seem to have popped up in a mayor arc.The only exposure I have to them is the Digimon X movie, so I only really know of Dukemon, Alphamon, Omegamon and Magnamon.
So consider this a signal boost for you J3rry, lets see if any of my followers are Knight fans

pecaulateagoatviciously said:Don’t take them for granite. (…Nah that pun never really works out well.) But they are really beautiful in their shapes and colors! That blue one almost seems luminescent. The shell carved from stone almost too. They’re nice and textured.

I did chuckle about the pun, so kudos to that!

The saleswoman was kind enough to write down the names of the rocks, which is the first time that actually happened to me. Hence the little papers under them.
So these are the only rocks in my cabinet that I actually have the names of, except for the obvious ones like Pyrite and Amethyst.

So I bought a few rocks today.
As you can see, they are pretty swell

morph-locked:

just a comparison between Suigimori’s official character art from Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire  to the originals. The redesigns are pretty great in my opinion

I love how much more dynamic Suigimori’s drawings have become. The old ones were all pretty stiff and rigid, while the new ones burst with energy.
Except for Norman, but that’s more in line with his character anyway.

However I do feel that they made Norman a bit too young looking. Must be the receeding hairline.

As I mentioned in my previous post, I am working on a twinstick shooter game thingy!
It is supposed to become multiplayer, but so far I only had time to make some assets for it.

So I am joining in on the #DigimonCollab and I managed to get Digmon, the Drill of Power!
I cant believe nobody else wanted to draw this smooth guy before I signed on.
Anyhow, have a WIP shot while I take the time to finish this inbetween the game making process.

Lately, my arm has healed enough to use my mouse again, and thus I’ve been getting back into the creative flow by finishing my old Minecraft texture pack. I’m re-texturing (pretty much) EVERYTHING.

The aim of this resource pack is to make things look smoother and more useful in design, but still keep everything looking familiar.

It’s based on one of the latest snapshots (14w27b / pre-1.8), so it also includes the newer blocks and items, like prismarine, rabbit stuff, and mutton steaks.

There’s also a lot of added animated quirks, like Raw Fish/Salmon/Clownfish squirming about, potions have little bubbles, and much more.

Woaw dude, these look great!

Cant wait till you release it :D
