Two Wolves - TaleA Old Cherokee Chief was teaching his grandson about life
"A fight is going on inside me." he said to the Boy. "It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves"
"One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superority, self-doubt, and ego."
"The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truith, compassion, and faith."
"The same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person too!"
The Grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his Grandfather "which wolf will win?"

Do Not CryDo not stand at my grave and weep:
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the softly fallen snow;
I am the gentle showers of rain.
I am the field of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the grateful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight.
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom.
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing.
I am in each lovely thing.
So do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there.
I did not die.

Metroid Other M: A RetrospectiveOr, how Other M does not fit into the Metroid canon.
It’s been almost four years since the release of the last Metroid game, and sadly this latest hiatus was kicked off, at least for me, on a very disappointing note.
I can’t even begin to explain how much of a disappointment this game was for me, but I’d probably attribute that to the ecstatic hype I allowed myself to fall into in the months before its release.
While the gameplay was pretty decent on its own, the linear style was a huge step down from the exploration aspect Metroid fans have come to cherish. I miss the days of Metroid gaming where I had the ever-present question in my mind; “Where the fuck do I go?”
Despite its linear take, Other M is a decently fun game to play, combining aspects of both the 2-D shooting style of the original games with hack-n-slash elements like dodging and “finishing moves”.
But while the gameplay in itself wasn’t terribly disappointing, (aside from th
Trade Ya - ReviewThis review will contain spoilers for those who have not seen the latest episode.
The premise of this story is that the ponies' friendship is tested when a trip to the Rainbow Falls Traders Exchange goes wrong.
Something I feel the need to note in this episode is that this is a story that has no clear central figure, and instead goes on as an ensemble piece, with all of the main six character contributing to it. Stories like this are a rarity in this show as most episodes focus on one or two of the main cast with the rest providing a supporting role. That's no mark against it however as I've often felt that episodes like this can work, and indeed, several of my all-time favourite episodes, like "Best Night Ever", have been such ensemble stories. As such, it stands out as a fair unique outing for this season so far.
The idea that the girls' friendships would be under strain from what they go through in this episode strikes me as a fairly odd thing. Now, to be fair, I can understand how
Nukid101's Top 30 6th Generation Games: 15 - 11
Hey everyone. Many apologies for the wait on this one, but I’ve finally gotten it up. Here is part 4 of my countdown!
Nukid101’s Top 30 6th Generation Games: 15 – 11
Tales Of Symphonia (2003)
In my life as a video gamer, I have only played two Tales Of games. The first is obviously Symphonia, but the other is the more recent Tales Of Graces which was...okay, I guess. It wasn’t bad but not especially good either. It was a very generic, safe story with some decent characters and a standard battle system. Decent enough, but not what I was expecting from a series which is often given heavy praise for its grey morality, dark themes such as racism and genocide, and a villain who is likely a well intentioned extremist.
All of which is seen in Tales Of Symphonia. The game was for many – including myself – their first introduction to the series and could be considered the Final Fantasy VII of its franc
My Top Ten Favourite MoviesThere's no question about it. Movies are a massive part of my life. From the time I could crawl, there hasn't been a moment where I haven't enjoyed watching them. They've made me laugh, cry, think, and done so much for me. But, in spite of that, I've never actually tried putting into words which ones I hold the most dear to me. Well, that changes now, as I present to you my top ten favourite movies of all time. Please bear in mind that this is not a list of films I consider the greatest, as there are many films that I fully acknowledge that are better than the ones on this list, but nevertheless just don't click for me. These are just the ones that, for whatever reason, I enjoy above all others.
10 - Pacific Rim (2013):
We start things off with the most recent film you'll find on this list. I know it's a fairly "uncool" thing to do, putting such a modern film in a top ten list, but PR did a lot of things right for me. True, there are a lot of cliches and stereotype characters in here,
Mekakucity Actors episode 2 Review
Today's episode was an interesting one to say the least.
Today's episode follows Shintaro's younger sister Momo, an idol who can attract the attention of others.
The story at first follows the manga, with Momo going to class and having a conversation with her teacher before going out, but then the show pulls a fast one and gives an in-depth backstory on Momo, which has its advantages and disadvantages, but i'll get into that in a bit.
One thing I did like were the cutaway scenes where Momo sees people as inanimate objects, such as the classroom scene where Momo sees everyone as boomboxes. Its visual appealing, interesting, and does in a sense give insight into her Momo's character.
Characterwise we are introduced to three characters, Momo, Kenjirou, and Hibyia. Momo is a bit of an oddball character, but this might actually be the best portrayal of her out of all the Kagepro media. They devote a large section of the show to detailing Momo
My Thoughts on Breadwinners and Clarence
Okay, I'll start with the bad one:
Watching one episode was enough to convince me that this show sucks. The characters are annoying, the animation is crap, and even the names of the main characters make me feel a little uncomfortable: SwaySway and Buhdeuce? What kind of names are those?
In other words: I hate Breadwinners. I tried to like it, but I just can’t! Breadlosers would be a more appropriate title.
Seriously, the Modifyers gets rejected, but THIS gets green-lit?!
Now for the good one:
Clarence, however, seems like it’s gonna be a fun show… We’re just a few episodes in, but I hope it’ll be a decent show.
Clarence is about this kid named Clarence and how he usually spends his days. Clarence lives with his mother Mary, and has two best friends: Sumo, a bald crazy kid, who looks a lot like Beavis from Beavis and Butthead and Jeff, a nervous kid. There’s also Amy Gillis, whom I hope will be a recurring character, and Clare

With a shimmer, a man in black and a Guy Fawkes mask and sitting at a desk appeared in a red background.
“Good day, DeviantArt.” He introduced, “Allow me to apologize for this interruption. I, like many of you, appreciate the comforts of every day routine, the security of the familiar, the tranquility of repetition. I enjoy them as much as any schmoe. But, in the spirit of commemoration, usually associated with someone’s death or the end of some awful, bloody struggle, a celebration of a nice holiday, I thought we could take some time out of our daily lives to sit down and have a little chat.
