If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do? 

Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.

Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?

On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.

If you’ve got a website, blog or tumblr, get the code to join the #InternetSlowdown here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10th

Everyone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown: http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown

We told you it was coming, and now it’s here— the Transistor giveaway! We’ve got games n’ goodies and other neat shit to decorate your laptop case while you’re cruisin’ on the subway. Let’s lay down the goods and keep it easy.

  • FIRST PRIZE: Your very own copy of TransistorBut not just a copy of the game— we’ll give you the fancy version, complete with the official soundtrack. While you’re at it, pick out two of those pin sets up there, shipped directly from Fangamer.net. Don’t see two you like? Drop us a line— there’s a ton of other options.
  • SECOND PRIZE: Ever get a chance to play Supergiant’s first big game hit, Bastion? Well, now you can! Already own it? No problem— you can choose either Guacamelee or Antichamber instead, and a pin set of your very own. 
  • THIRD PRIZE: Your choice of either FEZ* or MONACO*, because the only thing better than 3D puzzles is whacking pixels in the face. (*Please note: these two games will be available via Steam through Humble Bundle gift links— read more about what those are here!)
  • RUNNER-UP: You get a hella rad pin set. Look at them pins. So shiny. So beautiful.

That’s all the neat stuff. Now we get to the boring-as-hell stuff, but you gotta have dem rules.

  • All games are only playable through Steam. If you’re worried about some games not being available for your PC (i.e. if you have Mac or Linux), look up the Steam store page beforehand and see what they’ve got for you.
  • Button sets can only be shipped to the US— sorry, folks. You’re free to accept any and all games you win, though.
  • Likes and reblogs both count— that’s a chance of two entries for everyone. As two entries are the max amount, people found reblogging to sideblogs and giveaway blogs to duck around this rule will be disqualified. We’re not looking to get notes, we’re just trying to give you fun shit.
  • Ya gotta be a grown-up in order for us to mail you stuff. It’s the law. We don’t mess with the law.

The giveaway will officially close July 1st at 12 a.m. MT. Have fun. Stay classy.

Hey! I’m giving away my redeem code for a full digital download of X or Y your choice since I already own both games!
Rules:
Just reblog this post and get it out there; likes don’t count. The winner doesn’t even have to follow me (but if you happen to because you dig my blog then cool \m/). Also, none of that “giveaway blog” business to try and cheat i’ll be checking. 
How it’s going to go down:
I will be choosing the winner in two week’s time via a number generated by random.org by the end of March 22, 2014 11:59pm Pacific Standard Time. My blog theme loads numbers next to reblogs / likes as so:

Whoever is the winner has the end of March 23, 2014 11:59pm Pacific Standard Time to confirm with me otherwise I will be forced to generate another random number.
I will keep in contact with the winner through tumblr to discuss which version they want as well as informing them of the redeem code once selected.
Good luck :]

(Since apparently every other pixelartist on Tumblr is doing these regularly now, I might as well join the raffle bandwagon!)

So what is this? I’m raffling off the chance for two people to have their OCs drawn in the style shown above! Basically, you just reblog this post to enter! (Only one reblog per person, please.)

The entry-period is from right now (Thursday, January 30th, 5:00 CST) to Saturday, February 1st, 9:00 Central Standard Time (so don’t bother reblogging after this date!)

At the end of this period, I’ll randomly draw two winners from the pool of all entrants. For convenience’s sake, if you want to attach a link or a text description to your reblog, that’ll save me from having to hunt you down for your OC’s design through PM, meaning I’ll get your art done faster, meaning we might have more time for more of these in the future!

Note: I reserve the right to choose to not draw stuff I’m not comfortable drawing, like hardcore pornographic designs or whatever.

That’s about all, I think. Good luck on getting that sprite!

(Further examples of my work in pictures below, if you’re still not quite sure about my spriting.)

(E: Whoops, how did I think that the 1st of february was a sunday instead of saturday? Fixed.)
