Because it's no doubt unclear, what's going on around here is that I'm trying to incorporate news/opinion posts into the site instead of trying to integrate an existing blog. Hopefully it should contain all the essentials when I'm done, including comment and such, but for now it's more just like news posts.
Apparently, people do this thing where they like to refer to Belle (from Beauty and the Beast) as Disney's feminist princess. I guess I can see that, I thought to myself; I only watched the film once when it was current (despite becoming a voracious Disney consumer in my teens), and all I really remember of Belle is that they made her a bookworm (and her role in her own Sega game sucked). In the interest of solidifying my own opinions, I picked up the film again and gave it a watch, eager to see why we still think of it so fondly.
So, yesterday I posted the last of my SMASH colourations, most of which are along the lines of adorable and/or slutty femboys. I sort of neglected female characters this year, though totally by accident - plus I noticed there was no actual yuri in the hentai folder. I'll have to fix that.

So it absolutely figures that just when I really wanted to respond to a thread over at ENWorld, it's down for maintenance. I mean it's understandable since they were hacked and all, and are still getting back on their feet, but aaargh. I hate digital cockblocking.
In the mean time I'm going to put this here, since it turned out to be a lot longer than I intended anyway.

Okay, so if you care at all about American politics, you already know the story about Mitt Romney's dog. If you don't, go Google it - it won't be difficult, people love talking about it. Mostly they talk about how it's astonishingly gross, or cruel, or how he accidentally said "airtight" when he no doubt meant "windproof". However, the reason the story was brought up in the first place was in an effort to plug Romney, to show how he was calm in a crisis - he just cleaned up and got right back to what he was doing.

Now I have a blog I may as well post photos and stuff that I wouldn't get away with on my art site. Oh ho ho ho.
Here is Beartato enjoying Christmas at my family's place.
No Beartato get away from the bar, you are too young to drink >:<
Beartato was given to me by awesome Canada Jenn who I really should talk to more and not be such a lazy ass <:\
He is so squishy I fell asleep on him. Don't do that, it squishes him all out of shape. But it's SO SOFT.

"What dost thou enjoy in an MMO, then?"
This probably isn't news to anybody any more, but one of the longest-running MMOs around was recently announced - with entirely unexpected brutality - to be closing its doors. It's City of Heroes, not quite my first MMO, but my favourite by a near-immeasurable margin. As a seven-year veteran, I obviously had a vested interest in the game, but there's more to it than that; there really are things in City that, to the best of my my knowledge, no other MMO has done - and more that no other MMO has done well.
Today I was asked what I actually enjoyed in an MMO, and it seemed as good a time as any to discuss what it is about this game that makes me love it, especially in the face of newer, prettier, and more popular games.
Technically Fox's blog. It's for site updates, rants, cool stuff, social issues, gaming and whatever else Fox gets the chance to have an opinion on.
