  1. Okay. Need to vent.

    I don't give a s*it what side you're on with the Vic situation. I just saw a KickVic conversation in which one of them insulted the IStandWithVic people by calling them Autistic.

    Again, I don't give a f*ck what anyone thinks about Vic. Using Autism as an insult thoroughly PISSES ME OFF!!!

    (I have a type of Autism if you didn't know.)

    That is all.

      Yeah, that shit is never OK.

      As an Autistic person myself, I'd prioritise Vic being a piece of shit. 

      (Obviously without using that particular insult myself).

      Calling a Vic supporter an autistic person is an insult to autistic people.

      Thanks for totally shitting on my feelings.

    5. Panda Claus

      How are we shitting on your feelings? We’re all agreeing with you.

      @Petrifying Panda You actually are. His entire point was that it doesn't matter what your views on Vic is but you guys insisted on insulting those who actually like Vic.

      Also "calling x a(n) y is an insult to y" also means y is used as a form of insult to a lesser extent.

    7. Panda Claus

      Panda Claus

      Sorry, yes it is insulting in general.

  2. Perhaps this is common knowledge but it was pointed out by @Solister that profile activity seems to be empty. Don't know if it's like that for everyone but we have confirmed that it's like that for some of us at least. Is it the same for you? Discussing it, they seemed unsure whether to make a topic so I figured I'd do it for them. This is one of those bug report things. I'm not sure what else to say. I haven't noticed anything else, but maybe you have?
  3. Congratulations!

      Free mansion? Prize without needing to enter? Absolutely no suspicious activity at all?

       

  4. Did anyone know about this Nintendo Switch, Overwatch Launch party thing? Well it's been cancelled. Interesting that the tweet mentions specifically that it was Blizzard that cancelled it. We would've suspected that anyway, I just figure it was smart of the Nintendo Twitter PR person to point blame directly at Blizzard. https://mynintendonews.com/2019/10/15/blizzard-cancels-overwatch-nintendo-switch-launch-event-at-nintendo-ny-store/ I wouldn't be surprised if Blizzard cancelled Blizzcon. But they can't hide forever.
  5. I wanted to make my own unique logo to house all my animation projects under.

    Why not make it cool looking one with something like Blender? It's free for some reason.

    *Loads Blender*

    …..Darn. That's a lot of options. Back to YouTube for Blender guides.... 😕

    It'll be worth it in the end. I hope...

  6. Their seems to be a group of people that either like to trick others into reacting to an absurd statement and then criticize them for doing it or say something dumb and then claim it was a joke when called out.

    This irks me as, (Being Autistic) detecting jokes is actually harder and we tend to take things literally. Then you get some clown going "Huh huh huh, idiot." Which alienates an already heavily alienated group of people.

    But I feel like I'm seeing more people not care about mental health these days.....

    Just my two pence...

    1. Blue Blood

      Blue Blood

      If someone says something that you think seems absurd, it might be worth asking if they're being sarcastic/joking. I doubt that the intent is there to make you react to something absurd (unless they're out to make a mockery of you, in which case you should do your best to ignore them and move on). Usually with sarcasm, the intent is to point out how absurd something is and make a joke of it. People often change their inflections and emphasise words when using sarcasm, but not always. And it's harder still to detect when it's written and not spoken. 

      Knowing whether or not someone is joking or being sarcastic also depends on the person. We all have different senses of humour. For example, my siblings and I understand each other very well and we all know when we're joking or being serious, simply from what we're saying. But with a random strangers or anytime you don't know as well it becomes much more difficult.

      It sucks to feel left out when people are joking in a way that you don't get, or to feel though you're the target in their jokes. 

  7. Saw a very odd tweet that claimed mental illness and all types of it are a choice.

    I wonder if it was a joke? 

    I was going to share it but one of the replies was pretty graphic for some reason.

  8. I like how Left Foot Media analyses movies. I feel like he should have more subscribers.

    The following example is from The Joker movie and contains spoilers.

     

  9. The YouTube content creators have all shared their thoughts on that statement. I sometimes forget things so having them keep track of the details really helps me understand things better. Yeah, based on how Blizzard had already acted and the words in this statement, the contradictions are many and not even Pheonix Wright could save Blizzard from that one. Pick one, they seem to share the same opinion. YongYea HeelvsBabyface TheQuartering LIVE w/ Mark Kern LegacyKillaHD
  10. Any other creative types here have this problem?

    Having two strong ideas for projects at the same time but can't decide which to do first? 😖

    1. PC the Hedgehog

      PC the Hedgehog

      Just two? Pbbt, I have at least a half dozen strong project ideas. Oh, to have the time. I'll never get 'em all done.

    2. Sonic Fan J

      Sonic Fan J

      Having only two is a blessing in my opinion. This especially true when you have more ideas than you can count and they start blending together.

      Times like that I just go with the flow, if I think of something that could possibly be better, I SAVE MY WORK OFTEN  so that I can change it back anytime if I'm not feeling it once it's down.

  11. Steam are having a sale of Idea Factory titles.

     

    ….I'm a sucker for a good deal.

  12. Their is this t-shirt that hurts my head. Every time I see it, I face palm. XD

      Imagine being the guy who made that tweet, seeing this dumb joke, not realizing it's intentionally incorrect, and unironically thinking "there must be some way I can blame this on progressives"

    3. JosepHenry

      JosepHenry

      ... is a joke. THE SHIRT IS AN INTENTIONAL JOKE.

      God give me strength and wisdom to deal with.

      @Shaddy Zaphod @JosepHenry

      I don't actually understand why the poster mentioned SJWs but, how do you know it's a joke?

  13. I'd personally like Toru to join the roster because......why the hell not?!?!
  14. Been watching several reviews of Joker and how interesting it is.

    It sounds like the perfect movie to shine a light on society and say "Stop being a dick."

    The "critics" hysteria has been very telling. It's like they've been hoping for a mass tragedy with the amount of pushing they've given to their dumb narrative.

    It bothers me to even type that, but how else can I understand such extreme overreaction? I think it's important to discuss and understand stuff like mental health and this movie opens doors to those discussions.

    Meanwhile, the "critics" want everyone in a perpetual state of fear and will insult and smear anyone that dares think for themselves.

    1. Heckboy

      Heckboy

      I've become convinced the "controversy" is at least partially a marketing gimmick.

      Nonetheless it is really stupid to take a movie about a broken, mentally ill man and reduce it to "DUDE, FUCKING INCELS". Haven't seen the movie but from the sound of it, it could make for an interesting look at alienation in our current time and how society (haha meme) exacerbates these problems, but, y'know. We're in a time where we're painfully aware that we really can't do anything about anything, so getting Mad Online is the only outlet. And we need a new pop culture outrage every week that immediately gets forgotten a week later.

      It's an enhanced version 4 ala Persona 4 Golden or 5 Royal.

      But will be DLC for those with the original 4.

       

  16. Let's stop and appreciate the excellent comic timing of this goose. 

    Is this proof that video games really do cause violence???

      RIP BBC Radio Nottingham's twitter feed. 

  17. Hey, just realised that I've drawn something for the first time in weeks.

    Granted it's not finished, but you gotta celebrate the little victories.

  18. Just finished writing a long emotions post. I don't know why I did it and it took hours.

    Still.....I feel okay for doing it.

    1. Sonic Fan J

      Sonic Fan J

      Haven't read it yet, but glad writing all down helped you feel even a little better,

    2. Sonic Fan J

      Sonic Fan J

      And read it now.

      Thank you for writing that. I don't know if my words mean all that much to you, but everything you said resonated with me and I appreciate you sharing those words of yours. I really needed that so again, thank you.

    3. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      It is highly beneficial for me to know that my words have made some sort of impact. I didn't have a set plan in mind when I made that post and it probably shows. My natural talent to only focus on the negative has been a major thorn in my side.

      When you see level headed people saying that Twitter doesn't represent the real world and evidence to support that claim, it does help ease the mind a little. Sure, they are bad people out there, but we have the good to counter that.

      Something else that was pointed out to me is the theory that some online users may in fact be mentally ill to a more serious extent. Such as a fear of going outside or a fear of men, they talk about these things online and get sympathy when in reality, they also need therapy. If a number of people hear the ramblings of a highly paranoid individual, but not be aware of the condition, they might in fact believe what that person was saying to be true. If that makes sense.

    4. Sonic Fan J

      Sonic Fan J

      Definitely makes sense. Unfortunately as I've said in the past I've encountered racist individuals and women who are afraid of men irl. That's unfortunately usually where I encounter the problems and live in a state of constant paranoia hoping that I don't tick people off for existing as a light skinned male in America. Meeting actually nice people irl would be pretty nice, but just keeping people from hating my guts by keeping professional and courteous seems the best I can do. In fact, in my experiences social media is safer then the real world and that is despite all the problems it harbors and twists beyond reason.

  19. For the Switch, I've been playing Astral Chain - - is a fast paced action romp with the unique twist of not only fighting monsters but also taking on traditional police tasks such as helping lost children, saving the injured, gathering evidence, apprehending felons and rescuing.....cats? Their is tons of stuff to do on this game and seeing as the protagonists are technically two protagonists. Twins. You can play as a male or female. With the concept of Legions (A powerful monster chained to your character.) which has different versions that you'll unlock as you progress, you can go back to previous stages with your new team to find things that required the other Legions specific abilities to access. The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening - - I only played the beginning of the original and I was aware of a certain degree of familiar characters in this game. Even Kirby! It's strange to think that this game is from the same series that Breath of the Wild is from. Still, those that didn't like the feel of BotW should be able to enjoy Link's Awakening. The model figurine like visuals have grown on me and the Switch is able to recreate the simple button inputs of the Game Boy. The gameplay is what we all know and love. Granted, I'm not used to Zelda titles that let Link jump. I've been in two dungeons so far and still have much to do. While on PS4, I've got Code Vein - - ……………………………..…………………………….Still downloading.

    Found my reaction to the Spider-Man news.

  22. Like or hate him, Tim Pool shares why I've grown to despise modern journalism.

  23. Watched some Audacity tutorials. Also the first time sharing an audio file. It shouldn't be loud but check your volume before playing just to be safe.

    https://clyp.it/hhxsrbvb?token=04c4894d839f4ba5f58634e4b19ea7dd

    It's an attempt at making a monster or ghost like voice. What it started as was me clearing my throat.

    So my voice is hidden in their....so to speak. (Which I technically didn't.)

    Jokes aside, if I am going to move forward with this animation project, I will have to share my voice eventually. I can't afford a professional voice actor...

      Need a voice actor, you say?

    3. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      @skull902 Oh right. I could request volunteers, can't I? It never occurred to me to do that until now. It's certainly an interesting idea that I'll need to think about. It's probably too soon to make a request now as I'm still planning things out but I'll certainly consider it.

  24. Here is something pleasant to share.

    A Youtuber created Batman: The Animated Series intro with footage from the Arkham games. This is a side by side comparison. @Ryannumber1gamer

      Saw this, it's a pretty good recreation, although I think it would've been slightly better if ArkhamVideos used the B:TAS skin - 

      spacer.png

    3. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      Of course. I forgot about that skin.

      It's really been a while. I wouldn't mind seeing all three Arkham titles being remastered and re-released on todays consoles.

    4. Ryannumber1Santa

      Ryannumber1Santa

      Arkham Asylum and City have been remastered, although Origins hasn't.

    5. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      Damn. I haven't been on my PS4 much these days so I simply didn't notice. Guess I've gotten used to games being ported to the Switch and no Arkham game has done that yet. (I think.)

  25. On the same day I feel depressed, I happen across this.

    It's disturbing, pretty graphic and totally accurate. 

    1. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Not to point out a sexist angle of anything, but how does male depression feel any different from when a female is depressed

    2. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      Sigh....Really?

      Are you not familiar with the frequently used excuse of "Get over it," "Man up" or "Be a man." It's bad all around but generally, male depression is taken less seriously.

    3. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      I do understand that, I was just curious

    4. Panda Claus

      Panda Claus

      He’s not saying depression affects males and females differently. He’s saying society views them differently.

    5. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      @SupahBerry Ah, I see. I thought you were actually calling it sexist. I apologise.

      I've been made extra irritable by a story in which a 5 year old Autistic boy was being labelled as a sexual predator at his school for hugging another child.

      https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/10001058/five-year-autistic-boy-sex-offender-hugging-classmate-kissing/

    6. Panda Claus

      Panda Claus

      5-year-old?!

    7. Supah Berry

      Supah Berry

      Disgusting. On the accusers' end, of course. 

      Five years old is still very young; every child that age doesn't even know things like sex and rape, at least they shouldn't. Yet here we are, a "genuine" 5 year old molester the entire economy won't ever let he or his family live down. All because he wanted other people to know that he's happy and can't properly express that.

       

      Aren't there any Special Ed classes the kid can be in? You know, places run by people who are smart enough not to pull off any BS and make kid actually feel welcomed and smart? Or are the too expensive and full and the only ones availble are for kids that have lower function disabilites than he does???? 

      I hope the Board of Education is proud of themselves. Cause they totally ain't educated.
