Jacksepticeye’s Birthday Project

If you didn’t know, Jack’s birthday is February 7th. And I want to make a birthday video thing for him. 

I want you guys to submit art, little videos, songs, anything that says something along the lines of “Happy birthday Jack!”. I will put these all together and post it here on his birthday! Everyone will be credited for any part they gave!

So, spread the word! Make sure to join if you want to!

Just submit you’re anything to me!

Thank you for your time!

(Also his 3 year anniversary video idea, which is somewhat like this, is here: x)

Just read Bill McKibben's hot Rolling Stone article "Global Warming's Terrifying New Math"

Yet again, McKibben provides no tangible solutions to addressing climate change (getting arrested is not a solution, brother). What a waste of people’s time. I stand by my 3-part solution for smarter-over-the-long-term environmentalism: 1) Attend your city’s meetings (you’ll learn how government works, and how to change laws.); 2) learn how to read and comment on your city’s budget and environmental impact statements (you have the real rather than perceived opportunity to change environmental regulations); 3) run for office (stop whining and stop losing).

There’s also an interesting hypothesis for more effective environmentalism proposed by Bill Scher - building coalitions with businesses, which can be read here.

Day 14 - Which kinds of students are the most annoying to be in a class with

One’s that don’t have an opinion.  I think it’s the least a student can do to actively listen to a caring teaching 80% of the time (honestly, everybody has those zone out moments.  When it comes to classes based on class discussions, like ethics or anything related to Health Care?  PARTICIPATE.  So many people in my classes don’t look at the teacher and refuse to raise a hand to answer a question, let alone voice their opinions.  My friend (brought up in an earlier post) and I are consistently the only hands that ever make their way toward the ceiling.

If you don’t express your thoughts in your career of interest classes, I automatically assume you don’t have an opinion.  I don’t care what or how many thoughts you have in your head-speak up.

So I haven’t really drawn anything in a while… but DeviantArt​ is hosting their very first #SummerCardProject, so I decided to join in on it with this fairy drawn on handmade paper, embellished with one of my Enchanted Wood fairy wings!

The idea behind this project is simple: create an inspirational card to brighten the day of someone staying in a hospital; so someone lucky will be receiving this pretty card!

If you’d like to particpate, all the information can be found here, and you don’t even have to be a member of deviantART to join in: http://madizzlee.deviantart.com/journal/Summer-Card-Project-617277123

Words from CARBON founder

I’m Andrew Montell, I come up with creative concepts and try to make them a reality. I wear a few different hats, including GM, Editor In Chief and Creative Director. My various endeavours include ACCLAIM Magazine, the Carbon Festival and various marketing/advertising initiatives for clients such as New Balance and New Era.

Originally my idea was for a streetwear trade show with discussion forums for industry people as a side event… My team and I began brainstorming a format for delivering a forum event that could stand out from existing creative conferences and be representative of our own mindset… We hoped to achieve an event that would be inspirational and educational whilst introducing influencers from overseas to Melbourne and the creativity being fostered here.

Right now I am seeing some really great art and design innovation from individuals, smaller collectives and independent brands, some from very unlikely places. On the flipside of the coin, commercially the “me too” mentality seems to be more prevalent than ever. The ‘peer pressure’ for brands to follow suit when a particular trend in fashion takes off can be pretty detrimental to creativity. My respect lies with brands and individuals that can progress with trends whilst still maintaining a very unique visual identity.

Carbon is largely about the exchange of ideas, and this exchange happens on many levels, from the speaker/audience interaction to the networking between the different creative and industry people in attendance and the new relationships that grow out of all of this.

Game is Closed

Shipping game is offically closed! Thanks to everyone who particpated. If you got yours in before I posted this and don’t see it up yet, I will have it out tomorrow. I’ll see about doing this game, or some version of it again, when we hit the 800 mark. See you guys tomorrow!

Sucks that Frank’s safe, but when he is evicted that means he can’t particpate in the battle buy back or whatever the fuck it’s called, so yay for that.

When Lady Anne Spencer opened the doors to all races and classes in 1810, the house underwent a second remodel that expanded on the original. This remodel include an additional 9 dormatories (one for each of the new Houses) capable of housing up to 100 students apiece, 1 staff dormatory capable of housing up to 100 teachers (plus the headmistress), and a secondary staff dormatory capable of housing up to 500 staff (cooks, housekeepers, and so on); the school can accomodate up to 1500 people including staff at any given time.

Class structure is set up in blocks: 6 classes per day, with classes rotating each week; one week you will focus on Finishing, one week on Core Curriculum, and one week on Magical studies. Elective studies such as Painting, Horseback Riding, and Non-Magical Weaponry may be particpated in between Dinner and Curfew should the student choose them… Lunch is eaten with your House in the dining area of your House Dormatory- though dinner and breakfast are eaten collectively (together as a school) in the Grand Dining Hall.

And yes, each student is allowed one pet apiece- though the rules are strict concerning what pets are “appropriate”. Birds and Cats are the most common.
