I stumbled upon this video a long time ago and it honestly made me feel a lot better.
"If you’ve never failed, you’ve never lived."
I could not fit everyone mentioned in the video in this post so be sure to give the video a look.
He’s so fucking frustrated

YOOOO TUMBLR, I NEED HELP GETTING MY SMILE BACK, AND EATING SOLID FOOD AGAIN!
tl;dr: My jaw is locked closed and I need help financially to get it fixed so I can smile normally, eat solid food, and talk without pain again. And to meow at my cats.
My new rabbit is about as athletically inclined as I am
I read all the current chapters of Koe no Katachi in 3 hrs, and just wanted to write some stuff about it because I never really read a manga that made me think about these things as much as this one did.
I don’t know what I’ll be drawing (beside the obvious), but I need to get back into the swing FAST, so I’ll be trying out all kinds of shit. That’s right, tonight is all about experimentation and tomfoolery! But you might get a little peek at my paper doll project or other silly goodies like that. ;3
Ferguson Police conveniently forgot to publicly release this part of the footage.
It shows Michael Brown paying for the pack of cigars he supposedly stole.
The officer who murdered Michael did not know he was a ‘suspect of a robbery’, so the tape of him ‘stealing’ the cigars have no relation to the killing.
But this footage is important because it proves that the police are trying to justify Mike’s murder by slandering his character.
The concept for BAD COMPANY cover came to light rather in the very late stage. Just 2 hours after we completed the interior and we have only 48 hours to turn in the cover to make the impending Summer Comiket deadline.
The first ideas and its doodles’ based on what would be the easiest for us to turn in (close up bust of David). However, it lacked context and it’s not terribly dynamic. A little brainstorming later, Neko suggested a ‘Silent Hill’-esque feel to the scene, complete with the abandoned mental hospital. Something out of the Waverly Hills Sanatorium. The scene would be a hint of the story to come (or rather, the case David is involved with).
The cover turned out different from what we conceptualized. The coloring brought out the Noir Crime/Horror feel to it. Consider the similar themed covers of the Noir Crime/Horror covers that featured busty damsels in distress with strategically ripped dress. Now it’s ….David.
All in all, this cover was fun and interesting (although very stressful in that we had less than 2 days to conceptualize, draw and paint it) because it’s a departure from what we did with the ITW and especially Prequel covers.
The doujin will premier in Taiwan at CWT and Summer Comiket - both on 16 AUG. We will release the catalog URL for the preorders on the 17th while we are in Japan. Shipping will start after we return from Japan on the 19th (but will not be in the bay area until after 20th).
More on this later. Please follow us on FB or Twitter for details.
Robin Williams didn’t die from suicide. I only just heard the sad, sad news of Robin Williams’s death. My wife sent me a message to tell me he had died, and, when I asked her what he died from, she told me something that nobody in the news seems to be talking about.
When people die from cancer, their cause of death can be various horrible things – seizure, stroke, pneumonia – and when someone dies after battling cancer, and people ask “How did they die?”, you never hear anyone say “pulmonary embolism”, the answer is always “cancer”. A Pulmonary Embolism can be the final cause of death with some cancers, but when a friend of mine died from cancer, he died from cancer. That was it. And when I asked my wife what Robin Williams died from, she, very wisely, replied “Depression”.
The word “suicide” gives many people the impression that “it was his own decision,” or “he chose to die, whereas most people with cancer fight to live.” And, because Depression is still such a misunderstood condition, you can hardly blame people for not really understanding. Just a quick search on Twitter will show how many people have little sympathy for those who commit suicide…
But, just as a Pulmonary Embolism is a fatal symptom of cancer, suicide is a fatal symptom of Depression. Depression is an illness, not a choice of lifestyle. You can’t just “cheer up” with depression, just as you can’t choose not to have cancer. When someone commits suicide as a result of Depression, they die from Depression – an illness that kills millions each year. It is hard to know exactly how many people actually die from Depression each year because the figures and statistics only seem to show how many people die from “suicide” each year (and you don’t necessarily have to suffer Depression to commit suicide, it’s usually just implied). But considering that one person commits suicide every 14 minutes in the US alone, we clearly need to do more to battle this illness, and the stigmas that continue to surround it. Perhaps Depression might lose some its “it was his own fault” stigma, if we start focusing on the illness, rather than the symptom. Robin Williams didn’t die from suicide. He died from Depression*. It wasn’t his choice to suffer that.
FINALLY PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO TALK ABOUT WHAT DEPRESSION REALLY IS.
THIS IS THE BEST THING I HAVE EVER READ
