Most denizens of the West think of New Zealand as a little known outpost of civilization somewhere beyond Australia at the ends of the Earth.
Could any land be any farther from the European motherland, birthplace of the Renaissance that is the Genesis-point of the visual arts narrative we continue expanding and evolving today? And yet this remote country of islands in the Pacific has suddenly become a cinematic storytelling powerhouse, a film-friendly factory for the creation of some of the most important touchstone mass entertainment experiences to influence our popular culture in recent years.

I had a Skype conversation with my girlfriend recently that went like this.....
Girlfriend: I love you.
Me: I wanna stand with you on a mountain .
Girlfriend: I wanna bathe with you in the sea .
Me: We should totally do all the things in that song together. It would be so romantic. Stand together on a mountain, bathe in the sea, until the sky comes down on us.
Girlfriend: That would be awesome . Except I don't know how we'd accomplish that last part.
Me: ROCKET LAUNCHER!!!
Girlfriend: LOL! *Dead*

Today I learned about two entire states of matter that I didn't even know existed; fermionic and bosonic condensates. WHY DID I NOT KNOW ABOUT THIS SHIT!? How could two entire matter-states exist without me knowing about it!? I mean, WOW. This reminds me of the time my mind was totally blown when I learned plasma is a matter-state and not just the shiny shit people in sci-fi movies shoot at each other (Jesus Christ, try saying that five times fast). Didn't learn that in school. NOPE. I had to learn that shit from Wiki-fucking-pedia! And here we are all over again. GODDAMNIT! WHAT ELSE DON'T I KNOW!?

The Walking Dead comicsDo you feel cosy and comfortable sitting where you're sitting now?The Walking Dead comics2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Let's ruin it.
Despite being a story of people who usually make it, The Walking Dead comics aren't that positively oriented. What's positive about a world full of mindless brain-eating zombies with very few living healthy humans left? (Don't answer, I know that for some of you it's a paradise). Come and take a closer look at these comics from a diffrent way than usual.
The basics. The Walking Dead is a black and white monthly comic book series, written by Robert Kirkman and brought to its visual life by Tony Moore. These two guys are the creators of the serie, however, Tony Moore was replaced from issue #7 by Charlie Adlard (which didn't stop him from making the covers through issue #24). And, of course, there's also Cliff Rathburn, who's

Anyway, this isn't a basic tutorial on coding but you can find great resources in groups like eCSSited.

The Turtles TrailerI am absolutely delighted with it. It’s everything I hoped it would be: Terrible.The Turtles Trailer10 months ago in Personal More Like This
Had it looked GOOD, there would have been this nagging feeling that I’d be missing out on something if I stuck to my vow of never again watching another Michael Bay movie. I have fond childhood memories of the Turtles, so I may have weakened. But because it looks like, well, a Michael Bay movie, that feeling simply isn’t there. I have no desire, at all, to pay for or sit through that film.
Transformers 3 was the last chance I was willing to give. I thought “There’s no way it could actually be WORSE than Transformers 2. I’ll give it a shot”.
Somehow…. it was.
That was it. That was the breaking point. No more Bay. EVERYTHING he goes near is pure effluent, and all the evidence you need of how toxic a film Turtles is going to be is in that trailer.
Obviously, we don’t know what the plot is at this point, but it’s a
Prompt #2: Sympathy for the DevilSun Tzu said:Prompt #2: Sympathy for the Devil1 month ago in Literature Features More Like This
If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.
Because it makes perfect sense to apply military lessons to everyday life:
Everyone has opinions. Sometimes they're as simple as "chores are stupid, I shouldn't have to do them." Sometimes they're less personal and/or specific, like "if nations do not sacrifice their sovereignty then the UN will never effect change." Either way, there's always a diametrically opposed perspective: "chores are awesome and if you don't do them I will kick your ass out."
Just as your opinion comes from some personal experience, so does the other side. Which is what we're going to be exploring with this prompt. We're not getting into the great debate, we're just looking at how so

The spark of our revolution was ignited three years ago, and it's incredible to think how far we've gone and how much we accomplished since then. For the older admins (and hopefully, one day, for the newer ones too!), this group was and still is where we made some of our closest friends and I for one consider myself damn lucky for it. (:
We always tried to do our best to "mean" something within the Lit community, to be a group deviants could trust and rely on, but not only that, we always tried to be a fun group, one not just made of faces, but of actual people. And I think that with the amount of crazy admins we have, we're doing a fine job at that!
Let me take this occasion to introduce our two latest additions to the admin team, Sammur-amat and AzizrianDaoXrak. We're proud to have them and I hope they'
My Apritello RantWARNING: This is an incredibly long rant on Apritello. If you do not like Donnie and April as a couple in any way, please, do not bother reading this. I don't want to waste your time (especially since I'll be defending the ship).My Apritello Rant9 months ago in Personal More Like This
So often I've been asked "Which ship do you prefer? Apriltello, or Capril?"
There's nothing wrong with that question. After all, I draw fan-art for both sides, so I understand that it's confusing.
For those that are wondering, I am indeed a Capril shipper. (What can I say? I find those two adorable together.) However, no. That does not mean that I hate Apritello in ANY way.
I don't know why, but many seem to assume this. Which is precisely why I am writing this rant.
You see, whenever I meet a Capril fan, for some odd reason a vast majority of them thinks that instead of talking about how adorable Casey and April are together, the first thing they want to discuss with me is how awful Apritello is.
No. No. No.
Why on earth would you t
Lemme ask you this..If Nickelodeon was gonna make Capril cannon, then why did they make Donnie have a crush on April in the first place?Lemme ask you this..1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I knew there were apritello fans even before the 2k12 series, but what nickelodeon did by making Donnie actually have a crush on April is multiply the apritello fans!
In fact, it was Donnie's crush on April that initially drew me to the series in the first place. I know that other factors kept me going on it, but my point is, it brought in a whole new set of fans that probably wouldn't have been there before.

I love the literature community because it helps my writing and I also love to read what other people write and the ideas they come up with.
I love the literature community here on dA for various reasons, and one is that they are always supportive when you need some support or help. They always seem to be willing to give advice when it is asked for, or to just talk literature in often. Literature is one of the most powerful forms of art with the capability to shape the world and our cultures as we know it. Even t
