Approaching Horror

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Aug. 8, 2020



Though I am certainly no stranger to handling the horrific in my creations, horror as a genre is something I never dabbled in before.

Horror scares me the same way comedy does!

While I can crack jokes, I always feel I can never do it on demand, or consistently think ...

Wounded Characters

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, July 25, 2020



There is a reason why in fanfiction archives there's a whole category of stories called “hurt/comfort”, where one of the main characters of a specific IP is injured, and others (usually an unlikely person or whoever the author is shipping with the injured one) have to take care ...

Stuff About Stuff

Banes at 12:00AM, July 9, 2020

On the Purging of the Past in Art

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, July 4, 2020



First off, Happy 4th of July to all USA Duckers!

Recently I listened to Lindsey Ellis' excellently made video essay on so-called ‘woke Disney’: the company's attempt to remake or edit or outright hide past works because they are now judged to be problematic in some way or other ...

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, June 29, 2020



There used to be an unbreakable connection between myself and my desktop computer during my college days. My computer was an extension of me, a mech of sorts and as I started getting better at creating and using programs like Photoshop, SketchUp, AutoCAD, and Revit, I needed to constantly upgrade ...

What if Nobody Ever Sees It

Banes at 12:00AM, June 25, 2020



Early in my writing efforts, I mostly did short stories. Scenes, really. I'd imagine a whole story around the scene I wrote and drew. I did a series of scenes about two private detectives hired to solve a 20-year old murder. I had no idea who did it, why ...

Making Meaningful Connections

kawaiidaigakusei at 12:00AM, June 22, 2020


TP Time (2020)
This piece shows the relationship of toilet paper and time. Are they both running out or is it possible to buy more of either one?

I snapped a picture while staring up at a tall pile of toilet paper rolls and an analog clock. The quick pace ...

A Character's Free Will

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, June 20, 2020




Whether we have free will or not is a philosophical, existential and psychological conundrum that will forever tease and challenge us. While I can't speak for philosophers, I can for psychologists:

Behaviorists will tell you it doesn't exist (look up Skinner); Cognitive behaviorists will tell you it's ...
