So other than games, my other big hobby is graphic designing. I started when I was around 11 years old and now 4 years have past and I have improved quite a bit. Here are some wallpapers I have made over the years and I wanted to share them with you all.
If you're like me then you probably go to YouTube each and every day. But since around 2008, YouTube has been going downhill, fast.
In 2006 the YouTube layout, in my opinion, was perfect. But now they are constantly changing their layout. It feels like they're changing it once every month. This is very irritating, because just when you're starting to get used to the current layout, a new one pops up and everything is rearranged. Unfortunately the newer layouts aren't a big improvement either. They usually get more complicated.
If you click on the Video section on YouTube's front page, you get directed to the Most Viewed page, at-least it was like that last time I checked. The thumbnails here are filled with women with big breasts. Or its a new video by Fred or Smosh. To get up on that list you need to get over 60,000 views in under 48 hours. That is nearly impossible unless you're one of the top subscribed of all time. So getting recognized by the YouTube community today is incredibly hard, unless your a women with big breasts.
I remember back in the days that the featured videos were actually good. Now they are just boring, tasteless stuff. Now, once in a while you're gonna find a good video on there, but not nearly as much as before.
If you don't live in the US then Im sure you've seen this message before "This Video Is Not Available In Your Country". That is bullshit. If I wanna watch a video I should be able to watch it, no matter where I live. And no I don't care about Copyright laws right here, you know why? Because this whole damn site was built off of videos that had copyrighted material. The Pokemon Theme song video by Smosh and Evolution Of Dance. If these kind of videos weren't made, then YouTube wouldn't be where it is now.
That's all I can get myself to write right now. There are more problems with YouTube that need to be fixed. And not EVERYTHING is bad. The new HD feature is really sweet. But Im disliking YouTube more and more as each day passes.
If you even bothered to read all of that, I'll be interested to hear your thoughts. Do you agree or disagree?
I have seen most of the films that have been nominated for Best Picture and I have to say, Wall E definitely deserves a spot on that list. I have no idea why an animated can't be nominated for best picture? The only one I remember is Beauty and the Beast, and that was a long time ago. This movie had great animation, story and characters. Im a 100% sure its gonna win Best Animated Film, while Kung Fu Panda was great too, it had a quite overused story.
I think the judges should appreciate animated movies more and not be so afraid of nominating them. Im sure many people will agree with me.
