about to buy this, aw yeh.
You’re about to buy it, so you know precisely where it’s from, but you’re not going to bother adding the source? Dick move, man.
HEY DO YOU LIKE POKEMON?
Yeah you probably do which is why THIS REALLY COOL WEBSITE is a thing you should check out.
It’s a FREE online Pokemon trading card game where you can play against other people, build decks, buy and sell cards, complete quests to get extra “bits” (money to buy more cards with), and get booster packs. You get bits every time you play against someone, and it’s pretty easy to get a good deck built!
I repeat, this is FREE, and AWESOME. I’ve been playing it all day.
It’s also relatively unknown right now, which is why you should all go and play it so it can gain a little notoriety.
I forgot to mention, you can specify which generation you want to play. So if you only have basic knowledge of gen 1, or you’re pretty good with any gen, you can play against other people who play the same.
The final volume of Creamy Mami has less than 11 days to reach it’s funding goal on Anime Sols, and it needs your help to succeed!
Why should you contribute to Creamy Mami on Anime Sols?
- It’s the final volume of the series! If it doesn’t get funded, it’s likely that the series will remained unfinished on DVD.
- If you pledge towards the higher tiers, you can receive some pretty awesome Japanese Creamy Mami goods!
- While several shows have failed to reach funding, Creamy Mami is consistently one of their top shows. It would be a shame if it got this far and people forgot about it.
- If Creamy Mami succeeds, Anime Sols might consider releasing more classic mahou shoujo (such as Magical Emi).
So what can you do to help?
- Contribute towards their funding goal! Remember, you won’t get charged anything until after the goal is met.
- Don’t have any money? Then spread the word! Tell your friends, pass links around, and reblog links!
- Anime Sols has both a Twitter account and a Facebook page, so retweeting and sharing posts from either that have official links and info are also super helpful in getting the word out there.
- Chances are, you might know at least one person who likes magical girl shows—so let them know! Have they donated towards it yet? Do they even know it exists? Ask them about it! (Or better yet, pledge for a DVD set as a gift for them!)
- Don’t like magical girl shows? That’s understandable! You still might consider donating $5 just to help the show along—and remember, Anime Sols DOES offer more than just magical girl shows. Any series that’s successful helps them fund more shows!
And remember—if you want to buy any of the previous DVD sets, you can add them to your pledge of this final set! Just look for the options when you’re making your pledge. You can buy the whole series at once this way if you’ve been waiting until now!
The series needs around $10,000 to get funded, guys, so spread the word! Every little bit helps!
sometimes people get confused with the emoticons I use so I made a chart
I heard you liked kittens on dashboards so I reblogged a kitten on a dashboard so you can enjoy a kitten on a dashboard on your dashboard.
- California passed a proposition called Prop 209 which effectively killed affirmative action in their public university system.
- A bill has been reintroduced that will roll back Prop 209 and allow ethnicity to be used as one factor (NOT a quota) in university admission decisions.
- The bill would undoubtedly benefit, to a large or small degree, under-admitted and lower income groups such as: African-Americans, Latinos, Southeast Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders.
- The bill might “take more spaces” from other Asian groups (highly dependent on income AND ethnicity) who are typically more represented in the UC system.
- The bill might also “take more spaces” from the white population, which is why conservative Republicans are allying against it
Unless you know a lot about California politics (I know a little, but not a lot) it’s a very tricky issue to wrap your head around. You really need to take it slow and read all the way through.

Ultimately, you need to think about who more privileged East Asians should have solidarity with. The answer to me is obvious. I didn’t come from a rich family by any means, and I worked in restaurants starting at the age of 15, but my family was always able to support my college aspirations and made sure I got into college. A lot of other families don’t have that tradition and aren’t so lucky. I think the anti-SCA5 campaign is especially cruel and deceptive to Pacific Islanders and Southeast Asian-Americans. Hmong, Laotian and Cambodian-Americans actually have LOWER college graduation rates than African-Americans, so they have some of the most to gain from the restoration of affirmative action.
don’t save as jpeg
as a former yearbook editor and designer, let me explain this further
if youre only planning on posting your art online, them please save it as .png ;this is also better for transparencies as well
please, if youre planning of printing your art, NEVER use png. it makes the quality of the image pretty shitty. use jpeg or pdf instead. and always set your work at 300dpi to get a better printing quality - this means, the images are crisper and sharper and theres no slight blurriness. i had a talk with my friend who is currently taking design, and pdf is much better to use when youre working with a bigger publishing company because it still has the layers intact, but if youre only planning on printing your stuff at staples or at some small publishing store, the jpeg is the way to go.
this has been a public service announcement
as instructed by my graphic design teacher at an actual art school… (this was something we literally just went over in class today)
for printing: only ever use PDFs or PNGs. JPG completely screws up the quality of the image far worse than png does. (holy crap this is common knowledge) 300dpi/ppi (dots per inch/pixels per inch). CYMK color mode. if you have, like, photographed images (like I dunno, pictures of your dog or a wedding or something) jpg is “okay” as long as the resolution is 300ppi/dpi. but for digital art and design, stick with PDFs. they work out the best. and it’s really easy to save as a PDF anyway. tiffs are also hella, but PDF is the sure-fire way to go.
for digital media: pngs are hella. making a jpg at the highest possible quality also works well if you don’t really care for losing a little bit of data (it still looks as good as a png). RBG color mode. the ppi/dpi doesn’t matter as much so if you want a pretty fancy image that’s really big (as in a lot of pixels) the ppi/dpi doesn’t really matter (and it can make the file a little smaller)
ugh, if you really want to be doing printing, just, uhhh, I dunno, research it and don’t go off of the basis of just one single post.
also check these out. helpful for printing.
it should also be noted that some graphic design teachers teach different methods but the general standard is
for print: CMYK, PDF / PNG / TIF, 300 dpi (minimum)
for web: RGB, PNG / JPEG / (at highest quality, but you still lose some data) / other web-browser supported image types, 72 dpi
