I enjoy reading the daily news and having a cup of coffee every morning. I scan the headlines on my laptop and eat up all the latest scientific discoveries, local weather, and international news. I enjoyed reading about the asteroid that came close to hitting Earth because it reminds me of how fragile and insignificant we are here on our little blue marble. Our place in the Universe is pretty much meaningless in terms of time and space, yet we think we are not only important but THE singularly important species. A silly thought in my book.
Also in the news I read this: http://religion.blogs.cnn.com/2013/05/31/southern-baptists-to-urge-churches-and-members-to-cut-boy-scout-ties/?hpt=hp_t2 It seems a group of humans 16 million strong can't associate with another group of humans because of who they choose to love. It mak

One of those 'Existential' DaysI very rarely just...feel like writing a journal on DA. My journals are all about commissions, or art theft, or advertising, pretty much. I keep most of my life to myself, because my 3,000+ watchers have better things to read about or do than listen to me ramble. But I've had a bad day that has petered out into one of those 'deep thought' sorts of days and I just feel like sharing bits of my life.

To start with, I've lost a golden job opportunity. In late June, I applied at my favorite candle store, and they interviewed me. They liked me enough to call me back for a second interview, which hasn't happened to me since I got my first/only job a couple years ago. I thought I had it in the bag, then...after the second interview, they said they'd call me back in a week. Well, they didn't, so I called them in a week instead. They put me off another week. This happened three times, three or four weeks. Most people would have stopped by then, but each time I called, the man

Just something I stumbled upon today"Admit it. You aren't like them. You're not even close. You may occasionally dress yourself up as one of them, watch the same mindless television shows as they do, maybe even eat the same fast food sometimes. But it seems that the more you try to fit in, the more you feel like an outsider, watching the "normal people" as they go about their automatic existences. For every time you say club passwords like "Have a nice day" and "Weather's awful today, eh?", you yearn inside to say forbidden things like "Tell me something that makes you cry" or "What do you think deja vu is for?". Face it, you even want to talk to that girl in the elevator. But what if that girl in the elevator (and the balding man who walks past your cubicle at work) are thinking the same thing? Who knows what you might learn from taking a chance on conversation with a stranger? Everyone carries a piece of the puzzle. Nobody comes into your life by mere coincidence. Trust your instincts.

My day with a pack of wolfdogs (photos)A month ago, I had the privilege of walking with a pack of eight wolfdogs for about two hours. It was a wonderful and interesting experience! These animals are beautiful both in looks and character. So much energy and intelligence. Always aware of their environment and yet very much in control of themselves.My day with a pack of wolfdogs (photos)1 year ago in Personal More Like This
We also walked with three small/tiny dog breeds and at first I was worried they'd get hurt when the wolfdogs were having their playfights out in the open (safe) country areas. But the wolfdogs never harmed the little dogs. All the wolfdogs ever did was sniff at them and then leave them alone.
The playfights between the wolfdogs would usually take split seconds, and they'd look very violent, but the wolfdogs never actually bit. They merely grabbed the other wolfdogs with their teeth. Not a single injury was caused.
Not saying wolfdogs are easy to keep as pets. In only my two hours of experience I came to agree with what their responsible owners had to say; "A wolf

Internet went on strike in January 2012, the reason were 2 law proposals in USA, S.O.P.A. and P.I.P.A. (stop online piracy act, SOPA is a House bill, while PIPA is in the Senate , here´s what the BBC says about it http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-16596577 ), you already know about this , but to sum them , they mean that USA´s goverment would be able to not only censor but also delete entire sites that hold anything copyrighted and not only the infrigted piece, that and force browsers to remove links and so on, not only in USA, but violating sovereignty of other countries despite all the other countries.
That would have meant no fanart, no fanfiction, no background music from the movie/series/games/animes, etc on fanmade videos or animations, no "inspired" art... No critics or comments about a piece of art you can´t even see without violating copyrights.

Despite only having posted one page so far, I am very eager to see what will happen next in her beautifully drawn comic for the theme of "Lost and Found." She manages to convey in a single page a more profound sense of loss and desperation than many artists can achieve in fifty pages. The visuals are striking, and her characters are both aesthetically and emotionally appealing.
Equal parts humour and sincerity, her comic "Kay and P" is full of creative, well-conceived characters and engrossing dialogue. The interactions between the diverse cast members will leave you hungry to learn more about them... plus, where else have you seen a more charming and expressive animated skeleton?

1 Tbsp. cruelty-free baking soda

Mix the baking soda and water together until you've got a paste.
Apply to your face and leave on for about 20 minutes.
Rinse and follow with your favorite toner and moisturizer.
1 aspirin tablet (contains salicylic acid, which helps unclog pores)
Crush the aspirin with the back of a spoon and add just enough water to form a paste. Apply to the blemishes and let sit for about 15 minutes before rinsing.
Another spot treatment trick is to take a dab of cruelty-free toothpaste (the white paste kind, not the gel), and apply it to blemishes. Leave on overnight. This will dry out zits quickly.

Shimeji-EE :iconrelic-nt: Updated Shimeji-EE.Shimeji-EE4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Information received in: November 12 2010. 3 hours and 45 mins. ( 9am )
FYI, I updated Shimeji-ee to version 1.0.4. The only change is that this version uses about half the memory of the old version... this either means that your machine will run Shimeji-ee better or you can run double the number of Shimeji image sets. *grin* This should be the last update I make (really this time) unless people find bugs.
Information received in: November 11, 2010 12:35am
Hi, I'm just letting you know I updated Shimeji-ee. I added a pop-up window when Shimeji-ee starts that lets you choose which of the image sets (the Shimeji type folders under the img folder) you want to use. Careful, like in Shimeji, every different type you pick uses a lot of memory right now. This'll probably be the last update unless someone finds bugs (or someone else adds features / improves memory usage.)
