Know Thy Bias

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Aug. 21, 2021



We like to consider ourselves open-minded, free of inflexible thinking and open to ideas. And we probably are- in certain areas. In others, we are not.

The chances are high that creating comics was something worthwhile after reading the daily newspaper “funnies” section; or reading a few panels of the Sunday comics after it had been used as gift wrap for a birthday present; or it could have been as simple as reading a printed comic ...

Finding My Way to Paradise Falls

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, July 11, 2016


I was feeling emotional a few nights ago, so I did what I normally do in this situation–I went on YouTube and watched clips from sad children's movies. I picked the intro montage from Disney Pixar's UP as my poison of choice and it did the job ...

Take On Three Unordinary Experiences Every Day

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, Sept. 21, 2015
