“It’s amazing to be here with people who love music in a non-violent way. If you’re mad, don’t throw a punch, don’t start a fire about it, don’t shout about it. Sing, that’s the most powerful weapon you have.”
"I thought if we made an album that tried to change the world, or give it hope, it would really happen. But all people found was death and destruction and misery and self-hate. I learned that the world doesn't want to be saved, and it will fucking punch you in the face if you try."

Gerard-- a life in quotes (part 1)"There’s angst but it’s different. I think we’re rebelling now as a rock band. We’re trying to keep it pure, but we’re not playing victims anymore. We’ve realized that we’re one of the youngest bands at our size. So there’s a responsibility that comes with that, whether it’s to fans or to outside listeners who aren’t fans, to be the greatest American rock band. That was the goal.

Pony Plushie Giveaway!EDIT: Holy potatoes, Batman!Pony Plushie Giveaway!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've been trying to thank everybody individually, but that has proven a truly herculean task against the tsunami of messages and new faces washing over my inbox! I'll try to respond to everybody, but in case I don't, consider this my great big THANK YOU to everyone!
This is just...phenomenal beyond words. Thank you guys SO much, and best of luck to everypony!
After four and a half years of being here on DA, I've finally reached what I consider to be a rather impressive milestone--I've reached my 100th watcher! Frankly, I'm ecstatic to know that one hundred different people have viewed my art and decided that I am worth following--as an artist, I don't believe there is any greater compliment than that.
So in return for being so kind to me, I want to do something nice for all of you, my watchers!

Contest is now officially closed! The judging can now begin! Results will be announced in two - seven days depending on how difficult it is for me to decide on the winners!
Good luck everyone!
Theme: General Christmas Baking
From holding a recent poll, it seems the majority of you are most interested in baking traditional food for your country/family or food you usually bake over Christmas rather than a set recipe. Therefore I have decided that as long as it is relevant to Christmas in some way, shape or form in recipe, flavour or presentation it will be considered as an entry.
Rules and requirements:
You must include Christmas into your baking, decorating or surroundings in some shape or form.
If what you you usually make isn't very Christmasy looking or tasting

5 Reasons to do it the traditional way5 Reasons to do it the traditional way5 Reasons to do it the traditional way1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Traditional and Digital art are both completely different mediums, able to create the same product. It is possible to paint a beautiful, watercolor-like painting digitally, as well as achieve the cleanliness and color options of a digital piece traditionally. Therefore, using one or the other to express ourselves creatively is, just like many things in life, just an option. People may have personal, sometimes even illogical reasons for using one or the other and that's fine. Today, however, I'm a cheerleader for the "traditional side", and I offer you 5 reasons to do it traditionally!
1. Oh the wonderful smell of art supplies > I'm not talking about the toxic smell that come painting techniques require, of course. Rather about the feeling you get when entering a huge art supply store, touching all those brand new pencils and tubes
HAHAHAHAHAOK SO ARMIN IS LIKE HAUNTING MY LIFEHAHAHAHAHA1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1. At school today there was a poster and some one drew a picture of Armin on it and it looked exactly like him and said Armin next to it SO YEAH IT WAS ARMIN.
I yelled "OH MY GOD ITS ARMIN!" and every one was like "WHERE?!" even though no one knew who Armin was XD
2. I saw a picture of Nicki Minaj and she had Armin's haircut.
3. I found out Armin's voice actor is a girl (thus adding to the evidence of my theory that Armin is indeed a girl)
4. I saw so many Jearmin pictures I just can't function what is life it is jearmin that is it ok yea
5. My teacher understands Miley Cyrus references, just sayin'.

Another ferguson thingEven if the details were impossible to know, even on the basis of "unarmed black child killed by white cop", there would still be reason to believe he was murdered and that it had to do with racismAnother ferguson thing1 month ago in Personal More Like This
a big thing I'm seeing in the dA community right now is "but I don't KNOW the details!! How can I have an opinion!!"
You can have an opinion based on: the fact that the details are unclear when you check "credible" news sources. That's not an accident. And the fact that it was white on black violence. That is important.
People don't seem to understand that we have been witnessing case after case after case of "white/non black cop kills unarmed black person". I don't know about your countries but here, it happens like clock work and the cops get off without any consequences and that. Is not. An accident.
The details hardly matter when we've seen the SAME THING happen before, time after time after time. Stop trying to nitpick this ONE situation when the issue is M

Concept Art - Artist Interviews and Features #1Hello everyone! I will be updating the journal every week with artist interviews! This month I am featuring Concept Artists (and maybe the next month too~). I will put these journals in a folder in Improvement-Club so you can always find them and won't simply 'get forgotten about' as I post journals. This week I am featuring :iconTylerEdlinArt:TylerEdlinArt and :iconNinjatic:Ninjatic!Concept Art - Artist Interviews and Features #14 months ago in Art Features More Like This
For those who don't know much about Concept Art. Concept Art are visual representations of ideas or designs, mainly associated with games, films or even comics. But it isn't limited to them, they can simply be representations of a world or character created from the artist themselves. Concept Art can range of vast galactic worlds to character designs to schematics for a machine, it shows us an infinite worlds to explore and the beauty of what the mind can create.
I hope you all enjoy and benefit these interviews!
