Goodbye 2013: You won't be missed

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 31, 2013, 8:59 PM


Gawd this year sucked ass. Suck games, terrible movies, disappointment abound, a sharp reminder why I hate going home for holidays, proof that the government really is suppressing news, spying on everything we do and destroying all our freedoms to keep a handle on us all when the economy finally collapses under the weight of the Fed's constant money printing, run-away social warrior activism from out of control feminists and mangina/white knights trying to destroy the gaming industry, a AAA games industry bound and determined to destroy itself, a bizarre attempt by Obama to start World War 3 by invading Syria? wtf?, and more of the same crap to be found everywhere.

So where does all this negativity lead me? Well to let everyone know that surviving isn't just a physical thing, its mental and emotional too. The only way to stay alive in this world right now is to cut out all the shit, and make yourself happy. And if you're a male, then its to take all those toxic women in your lives and kick them to the curb and go find yourself and make yourself happy cause no one will help you get there.  If you're female, well you could start by not making everything about your vagina and emotions and start considering what you actually offer any men (or potential men) in your life other than sex and shaming tactics. Then when you find out who you really are, then start cutting shit out of your life and finally stop worrying about stupid shit.

For those of you men women who have your shit together, cut out anything you can't directly control from your life. Seriously, worrying about clumsy attempts at starting WW3 or the pending dollar crash really doesn't matter in the long term as you can't do anything about it and what few precautions you can take are inevitably pointless (buy gold, gov makes it illegal to own or buy/trade/sell gold and confiscates it just like they've done twice before). So, if you can't fix it or control it, don't worry about it. No good movies? Then don't go see them. Save your money and tell Hollywood that you're not impressed. AAA games industry and feminazi social justice warriors destroying gaming? Well, I wasn't that interested anyway. Hell, none of the new consoles interest me at all, and the most interesting things that happened this year were in Indie games on PC, the many Atlus games on the 3ds, and the SteamBox offering legit gaming on Linux. So AAA gaming can go implode for all I care.

So what did I do this year? I kept my job. I potted two plants with a friend's help. I got 3 new polo shirts and 3 long sleeve shirts with hand embroidery that fucking rock. I got a Derpy Hooves doll to remind me of the good times. I got outside for the summer and rode my bike and only had to fill up my car three times during this period. I got to do some road trips with friends from Montana, and took some pics. I got to play some really good obscure games that few others care about which suits me just fine. Cooked and baked a lot of really tasty food and finally learned how to make basic bread. And I made my yearly fruit cake which everyone loves. Good times.

Nintend still sucks at advertising - Christmas Ed.

Journal Entry: Thu Nov 28, 2013, 7:32 PM


So apparently, other than the 3ds, Nintendo is failing hard in the US for sales on the WiiU and its games. Well I just saw their big announcement advertisement for the Christmas 2013 shopping season and it BLOWS! Talk about utter failure to capitalize on existing good games for both systems. I had to check to make sure half those WiiU games had even been released as the last I'd heard was spring 2014, like all the other delayed games. And not a single one of those WiiU games were system sellers. You might be able to make a case for Pikmin 3 or Windwaker but both of those games have a really niche audience and the rabid Pikmin fans had already bought the system at launch expecting it to be there, but it was another delayed until sometime in 2013 game just like Rayman. There's just nothing there for anyone.

As for the 3ds, if I hadn't already bought the 3ds and been collecting all the awesome games on it like, I might look at this ad and skip the system entirely! I mean come the fuck on, really? This is the best you can do to Nintendo of America? Even if you limit this dangling tile list to only released this year, you'll find a ton more interesting and better selling games than what we see here. Certainly more buzz and excitement was to be found for ProjectXZone, the Professor Layton and Phoenix Wright puzzle series, the sweet games from Atlus and Intelligent Systems like Code of Princess, Etrian Odyssey 4 and Millennium Girl, Fire Emblem Awakening, the no less than THREE Shin Megami Tensei games (IV, Soul Hackers, and Devil Survivor Overclocked), and the Tales of the Abyss remake.

I just feel that there's such a huge wasted opportunity here. I really think that most of the upper tier NoA management needs to be outright fired for this. I hate, no loath, advertising in all of its forms, so from me, this is a big deal that even I notice this complete failure to connect with any audience. I don't mind it when I don't get it, but when it feels like no one is even paying attention, its a problem.

So take a look at their Christmas Advert for Black Friday and tell me what you think. Leave comments below.

My schedule is going to change this next week if everything goes as planned. So I might be on during Sun - Mon this week, and then on Fr-Sat next week. And random times usually during the late evening through early morning due to my overnight shifts.

Book Reviews: The Dirty Streets of Heaven: Vol 1

Journal Entry: Tue Sep 17, 2013, 2:26 PM


Tad William's latest work is a complete abomination. Below is my description of what just might be the worst book I've read this year.

As I sat down today, about a week or two after finishing this book, I originally found myself unable to muster the hate or anger at this horribly written story full of dull, boring, and stupid characters to even rant. However, the more I remembered and though of the book, I could not leave it alone. This is one of those dumbed down featureless boring slogs that is so typical of Young Adult fantasy that I can't imagine any sane person putting this book together without serious contractual force being applied. And that's what this is, YA fiction given form from someone that usually writes high fantasy/tech and it shows through the gaping holes that mimics a plot. So much has been stripped out such as plot development, character development, world building, and consistency that its barely coherent when it isn't blindly pushing forwards towards the end regardless of whether or not a character's actions even make sense.

All you need to know about the book:
The main character wants to have sex with this demon chick and lusts after her constantly. This, however, is a problem, because not only is she working for "the other side," she absolutely refuses to acknowledge his existence. His attempts to self-narrate himself into her pants continues through most of the book, completely jarring me from the main story at every possible opportunity. Major Deal Breaker Do NOT interrupt the main story line with gratuitous self-narration describing how much he lusts after her, unless its somehow related to the plot in some way.

Bobby Dollar, the main protagonist, is trying to solve the mystery of missing souls while at the same time trying to fuck this demoness. He does this by needlessly endangering himself and others in order to contrive a series of situations where the only way out is for HER to save HIM. When that doesn't work, he calls her up on her demonic cellphone and leaves begging for sex messages. That's the book! That's it right there, no need to waste money.

Okay fine, there's more to the book. This demoness starts off wanting Nothing, and I mean NOTHING to do with Bobby. She avoids him at all costs and even attempts to end him just to make him go away. However, mister Dudley-do-Right persists and after managing to kill his way to the top of a suspected demon hive's real world corporate tower, pissing off a major demon in the process, this demoness pulls strings to have a congresswoman personally supervise a SWAT team to extract Bobby! No, really, this happens. Then, after she rescues him, she fucks him solid. Then gives a "I didn't mean nothing by this, so don't take it the wrong way, I just wanted sex" speech, which Bobby ignores and obsesses over. See to him, this sex meant that she actually cares about him, and loves him forever. Thus validating all the creepy stalker behavior he's done so far and continues to do in the book.

Williams spends more time writing bad romance than he spends on the "A Plot," which has to do with some stolen artifact and missing souls. I'd have rather read THAT book.

Such a lackluster effort isn't even worth my time spent writing up a formal review. Don't buy this book.

PS: Book 2 involves Bobby Dollar going to hell to 'save' his alleged lover/fuck-buddy/obsession. Did I mention how she repeatedly states that she doesn't want a relationship and doesn't actually want anything to do with Bobby? So he's breaking into hell to save a demon chick who doesn't want to be saved...

So was this book written by a hard-core feminist, or is it a parody of something? Because Bobby Dollar is the most insufferable misogynistic asshole on the planet. He does everything I've heard from feminists regarding how fucked up and evil men are. He's the embodiment of everything wrong with traditionalism. He's downright evil, he deliberately endangers others, he refuses to think, he's constantly violent, he thinks of nothing but sex all the time, and is a downright vile character. He's such a perfect fit for what feminists claim all men are like, that he's not so much a character, as a blunt 2-D cutout stereotype. One last thing, for the sake of brevity, I've removed my quotes regarding this shit-head's description of this female demon. He keeps telling himself that she's really ugly inside, but boy does he want to fuck her body...

Legend of Korra Book 2 - DO NOT WANT

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 21, 2013, 6:14 AM


Its rare that I find myself wishing that we as fans of series do NOT get more of something, but after a very VERY bad reboot of Avatar, the last airbender in Korra the schizophrenic love triangulating bitch who came out a year or two ago, I'm just not hyped to see more. Let me be more clear:

I do not want to see this. I don't know anyone that wants to see this. I haven't met any fans of Avatar: TLA that want more of Korra.


Korra lacked any import, she was a side character in her own series. The series was too short to tell any sort of meaningful story or experience real character development. She was never in any real danger, not with all the drooling slack-jawed male half-wits competing over who will get to bang the avatar willing to die for her at EVERY opportunity. Then in the final episode, bam! Suddenly all holes plugged, literally, superpowers attained as if by plot convenience, suddenly spirit powers go!, and 'i luv u forevar korra!' 

Yeah, no. Fuck no. Hell no. DiaF.  

PS: Nickleodeon, its very telling that you've disabled comments on your trailer video.

2nd 3DS Friend Code Share

Journal Entry: Mon Jun 17, 2013, 9:38 PM

My Commission Tracking Journal: fav.me/d4lk5fs


A new 3ds has entered my house:

4098-3170-3332 = 2nd 3ds

2165-5262-8691 = 3ds friend code - primary

Also, if anyone has friends that want to add me to their list, (ask them first) and post their codes too after they add my codes to their machines. I'd like to have an expansive list of people just like I had on xbox live.

If anyone wants to add me, reply with your code below. I'm looking for multiplayer games, partners, and just friends to pm back and forth. 

Just remember that both parties have to enter the code while connected to the internet, so it may be a day or two before I respond. 

Went looking for a 2nd 3ds in a colour I like, and none of the 'merica' approved colours and special editions appealed to me! Japan gets all the cool stuff, like that Eevee special edition 3ds xl. So I got a Pink 3ds XL!

Troll Avoidance: Repeat the First Lesson

Journal Entry: Wed May 8, 2013, 2:59 AM

My Commission Tracking Journal: fav.me/d4lk5fs


I find it hilarious that so many people forget the first rule of troll avoidance. Here it is again for those of you who missed it the first time.

Step One: Shut up.

Its that simple. Given our current state of shitty social media. From youtube to DA, all it takes is to not respond. Eventually the troll gives up and moves on. Self-reinforcement is the key, and without the ability to track multiple conversations without losing your place and therefore requiring a lot of work bookmarking parent threads, its damn hard to find where one rant started and another one disappeared. Have you ever noticed on youtube, that it doesn't track more than one reply at a time? Or DA's comment non-tracking where if you don't hear back from someone its nearly impossible to find out where that comment was posted from and what's going on in other forks of that reply chain?

Step Two: Don't block.

People don't like being locked out. So what gives a person more incentive to go on the offensive? BAN LISTS! Anyone who hasn't figured this out is a complete moron. Yeah, pardon me while I go hop on TOR and pretend I'm in China as a different user account. If you think trolls don't do this, then welcome to the Internet, enjoy your stay. The more you ban, the angrier they get. See step one.

Woot!

Got my commissions coming along. Been holding on for a while, but I've got quite a lot of them ready to queue up. I've got another Summer of Fun coming out from :iconevov1: EVOV1 as one large image. I've got another pony image of Sage based off of head-cannon for my own universe by Empyrisan . And quite a few other kick ass pieces from Toughset Panfe WaterGleam Ulta and a long awaited piece from GaruryKai .

Stay tuned, and I'll have these up in May.

RWBY: Black's episode SUCKS: How to Fix

Journal Entry: Fri Apr 5, 2013, 12:05 AM

My Commission Tracking Journal: fav.me/d4lk5fs


I really hated this episode/trailer. Video linked below, with reasons listed under the video. Edit: added links to the superior Red and White videos, and I highly recommend watching them:

Red roosterteeth.com/archive/?id=6… and White roosterteeth.com/archive/?id=6… were so much better.



Character Design
So she's another generic looking cat-girl who's boring, boring to look at, and her outfit looks stupid. Her voice acting is BAD. I've heard 4kids stuff sound better than this. And why did she betray him at the end? If I wanted a sex fetish chick with ears, I'd go hang out on FA where they're at least drawn better. A gun/whip blade? Again? She's a lamer version of Red (who at least was deadly) unlike Black.


 Lol What?
This is not how I was expecting the 3rd main member to be dressed for combat.


Don't Overshadow the Main Character!
Also, why is the male character, Adam, not only more interesting, but way more cool and effective. His sword with a shotgun sheath was far more effective at killing stuff than that retarded whip/gun thing. His design stands out, has more charm than whatever that overstuffed blouse + hotpants + overcoat visual mess that Black wore. Yeah, sure, design lifted from Code Geass and bleach, but at least HE was interesting! If you're going to tell a story about four different girls doing badass things with tragedy and pain as a backdrop, THEN DON'T HAVE THE SIDE MALE CHARACTER OVERSHADOW HER!

 
Knock knock, Viz here, we want our copyright back now.

Music
I wasn't paying attention to the forgettable music because the terrible voice acting, blurry animation, and boring fight scene got in the way. Which is a HUGE shame, because I love the music in Red and White.

Character Design - Fix
What needed to have happened is something that Red Letter Media said about Obi Wan and Qui-Gon Jinn. There needs to be a re-write where Adam and Ms. Boring are merged into one character called Blake. She'd have the design of Adam (with a female body of course) and his katana shotgun instead of another re-hashed gun scythe/whip thing. And she'd be alone, or with a revamped Adam being a helicopter pilot or something playing backup or transport in the background trying to keep up with her antics and gun/swordplay. Then Blake would be interesting, have a real role other than side-kick and she wouldn't look like a badly drawn attempt at ripping off Zatana from Young Justice. At least the Code Geass mask and Renji's hair/outfit from Bleach looked cool and distinct.

I thought I'd leave this video with one final comment:
I'd rather hang out on 4-chan during Caturday while beating off to images on Fur Affinity with the 4-Kids version of One Piece looping in the background than endure this abomination one more time. I'm going to go watch Red massacre hordes of werewolves, and then go watch Code Geass, because this cheap knock off isn't worth my time.

Here's hoping that Yellow makes up for this mess.

And the worst offense of all. She's supposed to be one of the four main women!

Adam: "Let's do this!" - Adam taking charge and displaying leadership.

Adam: "Buy me some time!" - oh yeah Blake is so important . 'go distract it for me, so I, Adam can do something badass and effective.'

Ms. Boring: "Are you sure?" - are you sure? wtf? do you not know you're fighting to survive? do you not know Adam's powers?

Ms. Boring: "goodbye...." - what? what just happened? did little miss sidekick really just abandon the guy who just one shot a giant mech? why?

And this is our third lead guys.
oh yeah, i bet her story is going to be so awesome...

Don't Fuck Your Pets

Journal Entry: Sun Mar 31, 2013, 11:03 PM

My Commission Tracking Journal: fav.me/d4lk5fs


Hi thar!

I bring you good advice and fair tidings.

Today's topic. Don't fuck your pets. Dog, cat, cow, lizard, child kept in your closet, doesn't matter. Don't fuck it. Especially you women out there. I am never surprised at the things women will admit to putting in their pocket.

Also, I'm doing fine. Job is doing okay. Still bruising my way through the art/skill/wtf of Legend of the Five Rings deck construction. Got friends to talk to and hang out with. Otherwise, not a not going on.

Btw, the weather is awesome here in Cheyenne, WY. Lots of sun and cold and wind with clear skies. Took a walk around the neighborhood and saw all the things going on. I miss Butte, MT terribly, but I'm still west of the plains and near enough to mountains to be comfortable.

Later!

Upcoming Games and Stuff

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 18, 2013, 10:58 PM


Short and quick.

Monster Hunter 3: blarg. Tried the demo on the 3DS (no WiiU). Sorry guys, I just don't get it. I couldn't figure out how to kill anything and after dying repeatedly to the first polar bear thing I deleted the demo. I'm sure there's fans, but I've no idea how the multi-player works, and reading forums to snag friend codes hasn't worked so far for any games I've played.

SMT: Soul Hackers: Interesting idea, but I haven't beaten Persona 1 yet, so this will sit on the shelf for a long time. Going to pick up for the 3DS 16 April 2013.
But I bet the sound track will be good.

Enjoyed playing the first few missions of Code of Princess and Fire Emblem on the 3DS XL. I turned off the 3d except for the cut scenes, and both are very solid games. Picked up Etrian Odyssey 4, and I really like the sound track it came with. I haven't figured out how to play the game yet, and will probably be a late in the year title to play.

I play games realllly slow. About a couple of months per game is about right. I have to be in the right mood to play, but fortunately portable systems seem to provide the pick up and play for a few minutes availability that I can stand.

Work is pretty tiring, but it doesn't suck and the work place is nice. I generally like the people and the pay is alright. Been working here in Cheyenne since last June, and I like the place. I'm not really bothered by the fact that so many people want out of this town and move to a larger city, as I'm enjoying the low traffic and general away from it all location. Plus, Ft. Collins is nearby and has more things to do and isn't too far to drive in the summer.

Six Years on DA. Submission Hell.

Journal Entry: Mon Mar 4, 2013, 5:52 PM
My Commission Tracking Journal: fav.me/d4lk5fs
News


Well what do we have here? I do believe its a six years on DA! Wooo.

I think I'm just going to install linux on my laptop, cause I can upload from work on my desktop there running Mint Linux 13 with some out of date Google Chrome and Firefox. I think its clear that DA's dev team has no fucking clue what they're doing. I never thought I'd see the day when a website works better on out-of-date software running on Linux than on Windows. Normally, I have to boot into Windows to get something done when websites start bitching about not detecting a Windows OS or some specific browser plugin that's Win7+ only. I want to personally kick the shit out of every single member of the dev team and then stave their head in with an old school Programming in C text book, because its clear these people need to start over with the basics.

I'll try to have the artwork loaded up by the end of the week from work. I can't believe I need to find an out-of-date browser and flash/java plugin in order to get upload to work.

Opps - Haha! Nice Try DA by SEMC

Yeap. DA fucked the dog, the cat, the ponies, and every other hole on the way to fucking up "submit image."

I wasn't aware that submitting images needed to be so complicated that "you fucking broke it," is the first, second, and quite possible my last response. I've talked to a mod that I can't remember off hand, and I just sent in trouble ticket or something. I've got quite a lot of images to upload, and I haven't been able to do so for some time.

I guess I could upload all my images to imageshack and then link them in journals, because apparently that still works. But that really defeats the GOD DAMN FUCKING POINT OF HAVING A GOD DAMN FUCKING ACCOUNT ON A GOD DAMN FUCKING IMAGE HOSTING SITE.

ahem.

Since when did FA have a better, more coherent and functional uploading process than DA? I wasn't aware that just uploading an image in a few clicks was an inconvenience to the user.

Has Anyone Figured Out How to Submit?

Journal Entry: Tue Feb 5, 2013, 6:02 AM

My Commission Tracking Journal: fav.me/d4lk5fs


Well I'm confused. I tried uploading all my commissioned images and I just can't figure out the new system. I tried the drag and drop, and I tried selecting the file, but all that happened was my browser opened up the file in the window as a local file from my desktop. I also seem to have lost the ability to upload multiple images simultaneously. I thought Paid Sub status gave me that feature. So why are all my images going into sTrash? Why do I need to upload them to sTrash then upload them to the upload gallery and then into the public gallery? I don't want my images in sTrash, I want them in my freaking gallery.

I'm confused and I'm not sure I want to upload any images anymore.

Blarg, welcome back, sorta

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 27, 2013, 2:45 AM


Computer died, finally had a weekend off to recover all my data that I could, which included bookmarks, and saved passwords to all my sites, and then put them on a new computer.

So I'm back and able to post again, but it'll be slow going for a long time. Working nights really takes the motivation to just sit on one's ass for hours on end right out of me. In fact, I prefer to do something else. I like to walk around the outside, the mall, and hang out with friends. Plus my reduced spending money means I'm not commissioning as much anymore.

Work is pretty dull right now, but I'm not sure I want to stand up and say, "hey the overnight shift is boring as fuck, give me more work" especially since I already tried that and nothing happened.

I'm doing good, and my ranting isn't over, but its toned down for the time being. I've already done and said what I want on several topics and I'm listening to people that have a better grasp of what to do next regarding male disposability, misandry, and men's rights. I'm never going to have a relationship, of that I'm certain, and marriage and the associated pain and misery industry is right out with it.

I love artwork and commissioning artists is really fun, and I'm not giving it up. I'm just taking 2013 kinda slow. I'm not in any rush, and I don't have anything to prove. Plus, a lot of my favorite commissioning artists are going to college and they just aren't available everyday or even every week. Toughset is in college, EVOV1 is in college, GaruryKai is in grad school and I've been waiting since mid/late 2012 to have her tell me how much I owe her for a commission that she agreed to do. There are others, but for now, I'm just branching out to other interests.

I got a 3DS XL and I love it. I got it for the fact that the larger size fits my hands and the buttons are laid out better. Fire Emblem, SMT: Devil Survior 1-2, Etrian Odyssey 1-4, SMT: Soul Hackers, Pokemon Black 1, and a few others are all on my list to play.

I got a PSP for $50, and I hated the PSN everything immediately. I hacked the crap out of it with a custom rom/firmware, bought some psp games (Persona 1-3, and Growlancer), and then copied the disks' roms to the 8gb flash card I got for it and now it doesn't vibrate like a freaking sex toy. I might buy the Vita later this year if the price drops to play Persona 4 Golden, and maybe two other games.

It turns out that even though I hate Sony with a passion, their systems and the Nintendo 3ds have all the cool "true" rpg's that I loved growing up, and I'll consider the next generation with caution, but interest. I'm honestly glad I sold my Xbox 360 because there's nothing good on it. I'm staying with the handhelds for now, because that's where Atlus seems to be focusing. As such, while I'm interested in the PS4 and WiiU, I'll be putting them on a good two year wait time to see if anything good comes out on them.

Take care ya'll, and see you around. I'll be posting stuff from time to time, but not every week.

JollyJack and the Shooting: Gun Lovers are Nuts!

Journal Entry: Tue Dec 18, 2012, 11:44 AM


So my favorite British 'adult entertainment' artist decided to open his mouth on this whole school shooting in Connecticut. He wants to ban the guns. Now, keep in mind he's a British citizen that lives in the UK, and as he keeps reminding us, doesn't actually care about our laws. But that didn't stop him from making an ass out of himself. Let dive in.

It starts here: jollyjack.deviantart.com/journ…

A deliberately vague question, phrased in such a way as to make light of the situation, by being cute and leading and thus ignoring the complex issues at play. Finally, it feeds on the emotions running high right now, while trolling anyone who actually gives a crap about gun laws by leading one to believe that the outdated constitution is what caused the deaths (not the man holding the gun).

If an aspect of your culture, made legal by an outdated document, leads to the injury or death of fellow citizens: should the law be changed?


So where does this lead me. Well he's a troll. Pure and simple, its intellectually dishonest. He wants to talk about American gun laws, but doesn't at the same time. So instead of talking about gun laws in a direct question like, "do you think america should ban guns?", he starts with the fundamentally bogus idea that our constitution is outdated and THAT'S why we've got a little over two dozen dead children.

He then gets a shitload of negative comments and then says this: fav.me/d5ohdtm

Let's just go over what I posted yesterday: I voiced that I have no opinion on guns in America, because I don't live there and as such; don't care. I said that I, personally, am afraid of guns and think they're industrial killing machines. And I posed a vague, hypothetical question that could have been applied to any situation where an old law/doctrine is in effect.

That's it. Nothing more. Harshest word in there was "change" followed by a question mark. Not "ban", not "make guns illegal" and certainly not "outlaw free speech and trial by jury", which some people with a slightly looser grasp on reality seem to think go hand in hand with owning the firearms I said I don't care about.

Well, today, I am going to post an opinion: if you're the kind of insecure, paranoid little twit that flies off the handle when someone poses a simple question, and who holds weapons and the laws that permit them with such religious reverence that you perceive that question as nothing short of an inexcusable, blasphemous attack, you probably shouldn't be trusted with a pointed stick let alone a gun.

Get a grip.


Wow, fuck me with a broken broom stick and twist. Let me get this straight. You lead with a deliberately vague poll question that everyone saw through. Backpedaled afterwards after negative feedback. And then finally compared everyone that doesn't agree with gun control laws and have GOVERNMENT AND INDEPENDENT AND POLICE STATISTICS TO BACK THEM UP, to "paranoid little twits" and "religious fanatics." Thank you so much, because I love being labeled a religious fanatic for actually caring enough to do research.

And lets drop the bullshit on one more item RIGHT FUCKING NOW. Gun laws are about banning guns.

-------------------

Since you want to step in our dirty laundry. I recently ordered some of the new prototype bio-film pint glasses pubs are going to start using to see what all the fuss was about. I never knew you Brits had such a huge problem killing and maiming each other while drinking beer. To the point where your Parliament is/was trying to pass laws banning the pint glass. Since your healthcare is government funded, the huge number of glassing cases was putting an undue burden on the system. So now, you all will have to drink out of bio-film covered glasses because you can't seem to figure out how to drink beer responsibly without killing each other. Bravo. Hang a sec, where's my gun. I might need it if I go into one of your pubs. I might get glassed.

side note: you brits have a word for 'getting smashed in the head with a pint glass resulting in severe disfigurement and sometimes fatal cuts and lacerations.' Glassing.

But what do I know? I'm just an ignorant stupid American twit with delusions of religious fervor, blindly holding my gun to my chest while reciting the holy gospel according to National Rifle Association.

Amateur Hour: Can't write female characters?

Journal Entry: Fri Nov 2, 2012, 5:41 AM

My Commission Tracking Journal: fav.me/d4lk5fs


I frequently read a lot of books, and I can spot shitty writing from the description and the first few pages.

This guy posts on a forum explaining that he can't figure out how to make a female character exist as a main character with a male character as equally important but they aren't Romantically involved.  So you want a female character to be a shared main character (protagonist) with a male character but not have them be a romantic interest?

"You know, I don't have a romantic interest in the cashier at Walmart, but neither of us are particularity fun to read about either."

Simple: cut the fat, or make them siblings/related.

If you aren't going to have a romantic relationship, sexual tension, or familial dispute, why have opposed genders as main characters?  Just focus on one and not have two opposed gender main characters. Make one a side character that shows up from time to time and do something and leave. Focus instead on one protagonist, and not two. Because when writing, if you aren't going to have conflict then why introduce the potential for it and leave the reader hanging? You'll just end up with, "why does this other character exist if not to create plot/tension/drama?" If a character isn't a protagonist (solving drama/tension) or an antagonist (causing drama/tension), then they aren't a main character and are instead a side character.

This problem stems from a complete misunderstanding of the roles characters play in stories. If you aren't going to go anywhere with something, don't introduce it.

Some feminists had replied to this writer, and were are complaining about sexism and real women and how not all women are sexualized...blarg, no shit. But stories and characters aren't real people. Characters exist in a story to do something or they shouldn't be there in the first place. Weed out your useless characters and your story will be stronger. Merge characters if you have to. And don't forget that each character needs a role, but not every role needs its own character. Characters can be multidimensional, just like real people, just don't make them all over the place crazy.

That's my point in a nutshell. If you can't come up with a reason for something to happen or exist in a story, why did you need it in the first place?

ps: unless you're Terry Goodkind, please stop making useless characters. if you are Terry Goodkind, please stop making useless redundant characters....
