Well, things on my end have been going pretty well for the most part. I am happy to announce that I finally have a Ninja Llama! Been wanting one for a while and to top it all off I now have 100 watchers! Thank you all so much! It has certainly made my day, and I will do my up most best to keep active.
Lately you might have noticed I been putting up a lot of flower and plant stock art. This is from one of the nature projects I was assigned in Photography class. The class may be over now, but that does not mean my picture taking is done. I have plenty of different photos in store. Some of you older watchers might remember the model photography I did. Well my best friend,
did another shoot with me. I'll be posting those up along the way so stay tuned.
On a more personal note, I'm going a bit stir crazy in my own home. I've been trying to reorganize and clean it. But I get little to no help with that. There is not much for me to do at home and no place to walk to from where I live. I would walk around the neighborhood but there is this strange guy that kind of gives me the creeps. That and without my beloved dog Biscuit who passed away on March 7th, I can no longer take him for a walk. I really miss him.
Speaking of the house, my mother is talking about moving. Hoping to the put the house on the market come fall. We'll see if that happens or not. It means we have to pack and take care of all the stuff. Funny how these things works out; seeing as I've been cleaning the house like crazy. Trying to donate, get rid of belongings, and box away other stuff for later. Sometimes I really wish I had my own place that I could keep organized and run things my way. If I could live in any kind of home, I would like to have an old fire house that I redesign into a living space. It would be in an old part of town where I could walk to everything I need. Filled with trees, café shops, a little market place. Of course with internet access and hopefully be able to share it with friends or something. Well, a girl can dream!
In the mean time I've been working on the
as the founder of the group here on DArt. But also I run its twitter and tumblr account. What I have been trying to do is grow the group as much as possible. The Teen Titans Project is a group that is dedicated to making the first fan film episodes of the Teen Titans. I am hoping to do a contest for the group soon. Truth be told, I'm a bit stressed out doing everything and that is why I am adding more admins. But I will only add those I trust since of previous problems I've encountered before online. We are doing our best to reach 10,000 pageviews by June 8th. I'm not sure if we'll get there but I'm hoping. If you have time just click it and check it out.
This project is sure to be a lot better than the Teen Titans Go 2013 show they have up on Cartoon Network (I watch it only for my Teen Titans Project as a duty even if I have to suffer though. But you can't really analyze something if you don't see it). Now I did give it a chance! Some parts made me chuckle but really it sort of seems to be making fun of the Titans. The people that write it have not done there due diligence on reading up on the source material. Now they may say it isn't supposed to have anything to do with the original Teen Titans cartoon of 2003. So pardon my little rant, but if that were true there is no way you would have the original voice actors. Don't get me wrong! I love Tara Strong, and all of the rest of the original cast voice actors and actresses. But if you are going to say that it has nothing to do with it, that it is just a comedy version; then really you shouldn't even bother getting the same actors. It is just a shameless way to get views.
Now I've also tried looking at it as if it were a different show. Like they said it was; since the writers are from Adventure time and something called the Regular Show. Cartoons I don't watch or really care for, but anyway. I analyzed it as if it were a different show. I must say that even looking though it as if it were not related to the Teen Titans, it still disappointed me. The reason is that though out the show it tends to promote bullying and disrespect of elders. The morals seen here are beyond what I would let any children watch. (I'm only 20, so I have no kids. But if I did they would not be watching this) let's not even get into a lot of the serious copy right issues I've seen here and there. This show as they say is marketed to 4-11 year old. Yet there are adult jokes and/or promotion of bad behavior. I'm not just talking the whole not cleaning your room or petty things kids should be doing. I'm talking serious ones such as bullying. When we should be getting rid of it and trying to get others to understand one another. This show does the opposite and its only five shows in. In episode five it shows all the characters now ghost and dead. I may have had a cynical little thought saying I hope that meant the show is over and done.
It is bad enough they changed the style of animation, refused to give us Season Six of the original show (though I'm kind of scared if they did. I don't want these writers on the project. Period) but they corrupt the minds of young viewers. Some may think is all jokes but bullying can really hurt. I've been a bully victim myself for most of my life. I understand the pain of what it's like to be made fun of or not be understood. To be different just because of whom you are then be ripped apart ruthlessly. It is NOT a joke. It is NOT a laughing matter. I may have survived those dark days and thoughts where I even contemplated suicide. It wasn't till about the end of my high school years that I became confident enough in myself to learn to look passed what others think. But not everyone is that strong, some do need a helping hand. They may end up being the ones to pull the trigger on themselves or come to school and take it out on everyone else. These are things we face and we need to learn to help those and get rid of bullying. If you see someone who is in trouble like this, try and talk to them. You never know, you might save a life.Random featurette!
