A quick proposal! 

I'm annoyed sometimes when I want to find nifty new apps in the Play Store that are useful or neat and half of the apps are games. I know I'm not alone in this. Take a look at any of the main top lists on the Play Store, and tons of them are games (the ranking system in the store doesn't seem to be the best anyway, constantly unearthing what seems to be apps of questionable quality, but that's a different discussion to be had). It could be said that all the games (which have quick bursts of popularity as the newest fad) are pushing down utility apps and the like.

What if Google pulled the games out of the main Play Store app list and essentially just transferred them over to Play Games? At the moment, for me anyway, Play Games is very underutilized. I don't play app games with friends very much at all. In addition, the functionality I'm proposing already seems to partially exist. In the side drawer, Explore takes you a list of top new Games within Google Play Games, but Shop takes you to the main Play Store itself. Why not just combine the two and include the store for Games under Play Games?

Some drawbacks might be a confusion on why the app store for Android is called the "Play Store" but doesn't include any games. Game developers probably have a greater audience being in the main Play Store than sequestered off to Play Games, but maybe people will simply become used to the change and learn to visit Play Games to search for games. In addition, the link to Games can still exist in the Play Store. Semantically, it might be kind of weird to offer those "number of apps in the Play Store!" kind of counts if Games are cordoned off. 

There may be other factors I haven't thought of in this quick blurb, but let me know your thoughts!

Auto-Awesomed graduation fireworks and photo snippets. I notice when they select photos automatically, they don't let you choose which part to crop. They just pick the parts with people and faces. One picture is supposed to be of the illuminated tower but Google decided only to show the very bottom part of the picture with random people, and there's no way to edit it.

THANK YOU for your thoughts on the Pentatonix PTX channel. It's pure deception when they repost the exact same video as the official PTX channel without any indications besides a tiny little video description, and it's cannibalizing the main views. There's absolutely no reason for this channel to re-upload the PTX videos when they could just link to them. I've attempted flagging the channel, but I doubt anything will happen. I'm just frustrated that they've amassed hundreds of thousands of views for stolen videos.

As am I! Yes, it bugs me, upsets me, floors me! >_< And Pentatonix of ALL people deserve it so much! They're the best, not only as musicians, but as people! I mean, c'mon, why jack them like that? LOVE would forward all the attention to THEM!!! Hard working, well-earned accomplish-ers in life, that help people get through THeiR days in life! That's a good idea, flagging them. Yeah, I doubt anything will happen, but, I guess we might as well try. But. Yeah. So anyway, Hi.... ! :) And thanks for the comment.

Know that life is not fair and that you will fail often, but if take you take some risks, step up when the times are toughest, face down the bullies, lift up the downtrodden and never, ever give up--if you do these things, then next generation and the generations that follow will live in a world far better than the one we have today and--- what started here will indeed have changed the world—for the better.

A picture of Groudon and Kyogre fighting I decided to draw in anticipation for ORAS and to avoid studying. Here are some WIP shots.

Potential redesigns! The last four are variations on the navigation drawer: combinations of colored background for the EID and colored icons. Any tweaks or suggestions?

This is pretty much the best thing I have seen and will see for a very, very long time.

It starts at 22 seconds. Sneaky ad.

I have itchy hands. If I'm not drawing cartoons, I'm fiddling with web coding or maybe even playing the piano (and a violin also makes its way into my repertoire).

Oh, I guess I could also be preparing for med school.
