Open Up Your Eyes (Zootopia parody)
It's time you learned a lesson
It's time that you learned to see
Don't ever make yourself look weak
In this unfair, biased city
I once hoped that others
Would accept me as who I am
But those were the childish wishes
Of a blind, idealistic lamb
Open up your eyes
See the world from where I stand
Me among the mighty
You, caged at my command
Open up your eyes
Give up your sweet fantasy land
It's time to grow up, and realize
Come now, little prey
Open up your eyes
We all start out the same
With big ambitious dreams
Shielded from the many ways
That life's not as it seems
And then there comes a moment
A simple truth that you must face
There's nobody above you
Who'll let you find your place
And as you take that first step
With injustice as your main source
You see it all so clearly
The best way to survive with brute force
Open up your eyes
See the world from where I stand
Me among the mighty
You, caged at my command
Open up your eyes
And behold the truth of life
It's time to grow up, and reali

Joshua and the Promised Land (2004) review
Guys. This is it. This is FUCKING it. This movie has finally answered a certain question I've been asking myself for a long time. This is the worst movie I have ever seen in my life. 
I know I've said that a few times before with other more well-known movies like the animated Titanic movies, but this one has finally taken the cake. Ladies and gentlemen, may I present to you: Joshua and the Promised Land.
Oh, and also, it just so happens to be that I'm reviewing yet ANOTHER bad Biblical film, this time centered around the story of Joshua serving as Moses' apprentice near the end of the Book of Exodus. Okay seriously, what is up with the trend of all these bad Exodus movies?! This movie, Exodus: Gods and Kings, Moses: Egypt's Great Prince? (which I reviewed last time) Especially also because Dreamworks' The Prince of Egypt already set the bar so high so why even follow such a tough act?
Also there's one thing about this movie that I just HA

yet another story update

Journal Entry: Wed Oct 18, 2017, 9:16 PM


One criticism I've received on my story Domestic Revolution that I kind of have to agree with is that Audrey isn't a very flawed or developed protagonist. It's been pointed out that it's just not effective that  Audrey already knew the entire moral of the story from the start and then preached it to other animals so that THEY'RE the ones who learned their lesson, not her.

So after some more thinking I've been trying to think of some good flaws and better development to rewrite Audrey's character with:

Audrey's biggest flaw is that she's extremely brash, stubborn, and equally as pushy on her beliefs as Joseph is.  In the first act of the story, she tried (more than once) to directly confront Joseph head-on without thinking twice of the danger she's putting herself and her friends in.

In trying so hard to be so preachy, ironically she failed to realize that she was being just as one-sided as Joseph. In fact she doesn't think about the innocent humans who are being killed yet; at first she just cares more about protecting Matthew alone from Joseph. Paul and Brad constantly have to keep reminding her there's no way that Audrey can save all of humanity so easily, but she just keeps referring back to her owner. She probably doesn't even CARE about the lives of other humans other than the ones she's close to.

Remember a while back I wanted to add a scene where the trio comes across some place where they find the slain corpses and skeletons of innocent humans that Joseph killed? I'm thinking of adding that scene in which is the ultimate turning point where Audrey realizes the damage that Joseph has done. And from that point on, Audrey will gradually learn to truly look on both sides (unlike Joseph), and that's where the moral of grey morality and species superiority will come into play.



I know this still doesn't seemed very fleshed out but I hope it's a start. If there are any suggestions in the comments, PLEASE give them! I still really like my concept behind my story but I want the execution to be just as good.

Major/minor update on The Heart of Karis:

Weirdly enough... I’m kinda no longer fond of Mingzhe’s and Santana’s names. I’ve decided to rename them Shirong and Cierra, which I think sound catchier and more appropriate to their personalities.

So I’ll be going back to my synopsis and editing their names.
Does anyone else have a thing where a smell somehow triggers a memory? A bad one in particular?
Why can’t the weather in California make up its damn mind already?! It shouldn’t be fucking 90 degrees in OCTOBER.

I know it’s kinda funny since I always bitch about the cold more often but the heat here has REALLY overstayed its welcome.
New idea: whenever I get artists' block I'll just redraw one of my old pieces from 2012-2014 (maybe even 2015).
Honestly what I hate more than my old art is my stupid 12 year old language I wrote in the description and comments. :puke:

For example I constantly misspelled words on purpose just to make myself look cute which is something I complain about nowadays lol

Hi. That blue winged Akita you (usually) see in my profile picture is my fursona Claire.

My artwork mostly just consists of fanart, memes, stamps, writing and VERY occasionally animations.

I am extremely opinionated, although my tastes and interest always tend to change over time, so view my art and stamps at your own risk. (Also because my stamp collection is pretty damn big).

I recently saw the live action Beauty and the Beast on Netflix, and I got to say, I liked it. This one song really caught my eye www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmckBT…

For some reason, when I listen to this, I think of Chirin and Jinx. I mean I know Chirin wouldn't break out into song, save for that one song in the English dub, but if you think about it, Chirin and Jinx's love story is in a similar vein to Beauty and the Beast. Just replace the lyric lonely tower with mountain and it would totally fit Chirin. Least in my opinion.

Sounds great. :D. Is there anything REALLY worth noting? I don’t give a damn about spoilers, so you can pretty much just give me the whole plot in notes if you want.

:)Well I Loved all of the new characters in the movie and the animation as well as the cinematography was really good. One thing is that the Storm King while not bad was kind of underwhelming.

Yeah I figured. It seems Tempest Shadow has more characterization as the villain than the Storm King.
