Part of it will always be a parent-child thing. They will always know things you do not, but what many parents don't accept or realize is their children will knows THEY do not as well.It's very easy to dismiss the ways of your own childhood when it was long ago abandoned.

Unfortunately for some people the only time they get to say that is when their children are young enough to still be grounded.

Wait, what happened with Big Brother and cosplayers now? I've been avoiding it like the plague since I heard some lunatic decided to relaunch it.

Big Brother (Channel 4) was looking in the Anime/Manga/Cosplay community for People to appear on the show. in there article they said they were looking for "Really wierd" people and then announced they would be attending MCM Expo May this year. There was huge protest about it.
Then, They took pictures of cosplayers, and put in in the Star Newspaper, with a huge article about cosplayers that said some really mean stuff. HUGE hype from Cosplayers in the UK about it, but it has died down now.
The worst thing about it was that used a certain cosplayer face who was cosplaying as Panty and used it on the front page. She was Very upset (She has a coscom account here)

Bloody hell, I don't know how I missed hearing about that. Then again, I was distracted by coursework in May.

Then again, it is The Star (they seem to love making up fibs about geek related matters).

True. Half of what they said in the article was Flase. that cosplayers were "Practicly rushing at them to get a chance of being in the BB limelight" :/
Yeah right.

Yeah right.
It's a shame they didn't lie about a specific company or organisation. IIRC just last year, after the Raul Moat shootings, they claimed that Rockstar were making a game based on them, got themselves sued (although not before the reporter in question went into a hissy fit on being called out about it on facebook): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Daily_S...uto_Rothb ury

And thank you. Very very much!

I had a bad let down with college last fall. I was accepted into a very nice art college down town, and was led on to what the cost would be out of pocket, come to find out that for only two semesters it's almost 40k. For TWO semesters. TWO. I said oh hell no. But it was disappointing and I felt so angry with myself that I had quit before I even began. But now I've got plans to attend a more reasonable school in the fall, with a very well talked about art program. While it may not be the glitzy school I was originally accepted into, it has gotten great reviews and several friends got their Graphic Design degree's from there and have said a lot of good about a lot of teachers in their time spent there. It's a fraction of a price to go compared to the art school.

IN the end it ended up working out better then I expected.
I'm not worried about being ripped off. I only commissioned her, because a friend of mine has commissioned her multiple times. I just wish it didn't take so long for her to update the status of her work, and I wish I knew a time frame of when to expect it.

Yeah. On of my issues is that not a lot of community colleges offer the languages I am interested in, and I have no idea how that is going to effect me when I move to a university, assuming I stick with my plans and do go to a university. It's upsetting when things don't go according to plan, but whatever I do will work out in the end.

It's going to be a busy spring when I get back from vacation. @___@
