The Green Fairy Takes Flight Again
It was banned in America in 1915, but distillation and sale resumed in USA and Europe in the 1990s. It’s a spirit produced from the flowers and leaves of the wormwood plant. Anise, fennel and other “medicinal herbs” are blended in according to secret formulas of different distillers. Who drank absinthe? Hemingway, Baudelaire, Verlaine, Rimbaud, Toulouse–Lautrec, Van Gogh, Modigliani, Picasso, Oscar Wilde and occultist Aleister Crowley. Why were writers, poets and painters so ardent for this drink? Its secret is trace amounts of terpene thujone, reputed to induce clarity of

Who Wrote the Bible?"Who Wrote the Bible?" By Richard Elliot Friedman http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0060630353?ie=UTF8&tag=httpwwwgoodco-20&linkCode=as2&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=0060630353&SubscriptionId=1MGPYB6YW3HWK55XCGG2Who Wrote the Bible?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've long been interested in the origins of the Bible, specifically the Old Testament, and more specifically the five books of Moses (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy,) since these were the texts that started it all. I wanted to see what the leading minds in biblical scholarship - not theologians, clergy or apologists, but actual academics - had to say on the subject.
Richard Elliot Friedman, noted biblical scholar and professor, has dedicated this book to that purpose. He takes a look at who wrote the Bible, how many different people/editors there were, when they wrote/edited, and why they wrote or edited in the ways that they did.
Friedman spends the first part of the book as well
People that I watchSo I got this great idea from none other than the lovely Miss CountessFoxington. And that idea would be to feature all the lovely people I watch and give a little explanation of why they are so awesome and worth watching.

:iconAlexAkuma:FuckingGotBorsch- Her art is mindblowingly amazing, like I couldn't even imagine being able to draw like that in my wildest dreams, she has a serious gift. Sadly though when it comes to journals I can't understand her very well because I don't speak Russian! And I'm not about to try google translate and look like an idiot, especially to someone so awesome xD But still check out her art, it's amazing! And she does not have nearly the watchers she deserves!

Follow me, the way they've told you to be seen
Follow me, and we'll meddle with the stars
Can you believe your jumped-up heroes to be thieves?
Still you long to kiss their apathetic hearts
Everything I need is everything that's killing me
And everything I hear is everything that fed to me
Everything I feel is everything I'm told to be
Everything I see is everything I'm led to believe
Follow me as we soar across this wayward sea
Or there you'll stand, divided from the stars
From what I see there's barely a true soul to reap
Deliberate or sleepwalk through reality
Everything I need everything that's killing me
And everything I hear is everything that's fed to me

Murphy's Law applied to street photography
'If anything can go wrong, it will'.
Street photography's first corollary
When the unique happening happens...your camera is at home.
When the unique happening happens...you forgot the memory card (film).
When the unique happening happens...you'll manage to accidentally delete the image.
The probability of anything happening is in inverse ratio to its desirability and to the time you spent waiting for it.

The thing is, what i don't like either is when they wait for you to upload something and then, they draw something really similar...
Or better, when they draw the same scene, put the SAME FUCKING TITLE, and just change the characters...
I don't think i'll do something for now, but i'll ask this person to be careful because if there's one thing i don't play with, it's my drawings.
I'm not a professional and i'm not a famous artist, but i think the time and the work i put in my drawings deserve some respect...even a tiny bit.
Soo that's all my little guys, hope you're all doing okay, i'll restart to draw and submit in 6 days, because the FINALS' week is coming:iconsobbplz:, and after thursday, if i pass everything, i'll be freeee for all the summer!!!

SFM/Gmod pictures is what is bugging the living shit out of me. As you may know, I'm making plenty of posters or whole comics in SFM and I know how much of an effort it requires to make something good.
But lately I see nothing but 3D art. People who actually make Digital/Traditional DRAWINGS simply dissapear in this spam of posters. So far I see that the only reason people keep on drawing is because they can't really work in SFM/Gmod or don't know how to use it.
And people who actually know how to both draw and pose are saying to themselves "That drawing is going to take me ages to finish. I'll save time and effort if I make it in Gmod/SFM!"
I sure as hell am one of these people, but for the love of God, if you ever wonder which medium is better, always pick drawing. It actually develops your sense of anatomy and you can use it anywhere (waiting in the line to the do
UmThis is probably a ridiculously common topic by now, but it's common for a reason and truly should be heard.Um2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Don't undervalue your art. Sure, you may be a novice, but that does not mean you get to sell your art for literal pennies.
The minimum wage in the US is $7.25. That means you should technically be paid about $7 for every hour of work you do. And keep in mind, $7.25 is extremely low; you can't make a living that way at all. I'd say the minimum wage you'd have to get to be able to make a living is $15, probably enough to pay for an apartment and ramen noodle meals.
But my art isn't damn worth it! THEN DON'T SELL COMMISSIONS. Really, if you think your art is so bad that you can't put a decent price on your art, then why are you doing it in the first place? Not only is it going to kill you in your later years, it's hurting the artist community. Think of it like this: some person sells their art for 100. A person goes to another artist, who sells their dr

Microsoft Employees Disrupt Wii U Best Buy EventsRemember how Nintendo was showcasing some of their E3 games at participating Best Buy stores around the country? Well, apparently Microsoft employees have been hired to go to these events and preach about the Xbox One and make comments like "why would you buy a outdated Wii U when the Xbox One is right around the corner?"Microsoft Employees Disrupt Wii U Best Buy Events2 years ago in Personal More Like This
However, the employees aren't getting what they hoped for. Most customers just start bashing the Xbox One in response. Seriously, Microsoft, the people attending these Best Buy Wii U events are people who are intimately familiar with the crap you pulled at E3. They ain't takin' your shit.
At first I thought this might just be a case of one really loyal Microsoft employee taking matters into his own hands (especially since the original source was /v/), but reports have come in from numerous Best Buy's around the country that indicate many Microsoft employees have ambushed the demo lines trying to persuade people to switch to the Xbox One.

Last week at E3, the excitement, creativity and future of our industry was on display for a global audience.
For us, the future comes in the form of Xbox One, a system designed to be the best place to play games this year and for many years to come. As is our heritage with Xbox, we designed a system that could take full advantage of advances in technology in order to deliver a breakthrough in game play and entertainment. We imagined a new set of benefits such as easier roaming, family sharing, and new ways to try and buy games. We believe in the benefits of a connected, digital future.
