Guess what!? To go along with my tofu I made an onigiri (rice ball)!! I am currently waiting on his eyes to dry... Well I just really wanted to post that, tis all! Comments (1) |
I guess I shouldn't do this... But I feel the need to...
Something happened today... Well actually... A couple things happened...
Way back when I first started visiting theOtaku, there was a certain artist whose works I became fascinated with... I thought they were so good and I learned a lot of things by simply analyzing the pieces of artwork. After a while I realized that there was myOtaku and I thought that maybe, just maybe I might get to speak with the profound artist behind some of my favorite art. I realized after reading various things on their site that they were the type of person who would not be easy to talk to so I just left it at that, but I still continued to look at their artwork and learn from it. Whether apparent or not, the things I learned from their artwork I started to practice with in mine. This not only allowed me to learn how to improve, but simultaneously I created my own style.
Recently, because I felt that I was now mature enough to fully understand what my favorite artist had to say, I began to respond to the posts they made on their website. Soon I realized that we had a somewhat similar interest and I put a link to a piece of work that I had made... To both my surprise and excitement they actually commented on my piece of work... To this I directed them to another work that was of a similar manner and once again, to my surprise, they commented again... I was actually really happy to hear feedback from one of my favorite artists... Then, after I noticed that they had updated, and I visited their site to hear that due to things that happened in their past and due to me being something that wasn't apparent, they would have to stop talking with me... I understand why they did this, but I also feel let down... I know my post will make no difference, and the only reason I am posting is to get the way I feel out.
I'm sorry for feeling the way I do... But I don't think I can help it...

The Awesome VSFS and the Odd News Story that Followed...
Last night following the AWESOME Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, a local news channel presented a story related to manga. You can find the article here: News Story. While I understand that the mother's concern was valid, there were many factors that the story left out. In response I posted the following comment (which I am placing here because I believe my original post on the channel's website will most likely get deleted).
While I truly understand the woman's (and other parents') concern, there are many factors that were overlooked and left out of this particular news story. First off, the correct pronunciation of manga is mahn-ga, with a soft A. Next, manga are produced for a wide variety of audiences including children, teens, and adults. The book in question has a teen rating placed right on the back. Another point to be made is that the manga section is not included as being a part of the children's section in that particular store, it is actually located behind it. I frequent that store and make purchases there quite often and even I, one unconcerned with that particular issue, noticed the seperation. Also I believe it is important to note that the manga section is located beside the adult comic book section and also across from the section of adult magazine's including Playboy and Hustler. Seeing as views differ from person to person, I have read the book in question and actually found no "almost pornographic scenes," and the most nudity that I noticed were some pictures of men naked from the waist up. The "Nightly Lover" that the back of the book mentions is basically an anthropomorphic mail-order robot. Finally I find it ironic that this Books-A-Million was found for having this book improperly placed because they actually have a seperate section for the more adult oriented manga which is located within the romance section. Thus while it is an important topic, there are many other factors that were either unmentioned or left out and I believe that parents need to be aware of all of the details.
Tell me your opinions on the issue!! I know I am biased to some extent, I tried to be fair in my rebutting of their issue. Well tis all, tata! Comments (3) |
