Libertarian ParodoxAs libertarians attempt to persuade others of their position, they encounter an interesting paradox. On the one hand, the libertarian message is simple. It involves moral premises and intuitions that in principle are shared by virtually everyone, including children. Do not hurt anyone. Do not steal from anyone. Mind your own business.Libertarian Parodox2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A child will say, "I had it first." There is an intuitive sense according to which the first user of a previously unowned good holds moral priority over latecomers. This, too, is a central aspect of libertarian theory.
Following Locke, Murray Rothbard, and other libertarian philosophers sought to establish a morally and philosophically defensible account of how property comes to be owned. Locke held the goods of the earth to have been owned in common at the beginning, while Rothbard more plausibly held all goods to have been initially unowned, but this difference does not affect their analysis. Locke is looking to justify how someone may remove a good fro

Or: How Spec-Lit Fucked Up A Perfectly Good Word.
Punk 'til you puke!
As a youth revolution punk was a solid fist full of fuck you! An angry, ugly, straight razor attack on the bloated excess of 1970's pop culture.
There was punk rock music from the likes of The Sex Pistols, Black Flag, and The Dead Kennedys.
There was punk cinema in films such as Repoman, Suburbia, and The Fabulous Stains.
There was punk lit, punk art, even a punk offshoot of gonzo journalism.
It was a way of life fueled by a belief that nothing is sacred, authority is never to be trusted, and most importantly, you can always Do It Yourself...better known as the DIY ethos.
In a word, punk is rebellion.
And I know a bit about words. Word have power. Word have strength. Words are the bits of

WIPs, page 40 and 41!Most people in my recent poll wanted to see the WIPs for the coming graphic novel page(s) so the waiting time isn’t too painful.WIPs, page 40 and 41!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This time I’m planning to make a double update, page 40 and 41 in a row, because it’s a long scene that’s a bit awkward to keep apart like that. Except I had to move the very last 5 panels of the scene, which would touch up its ending, to page 42 because I ran out of panel space here. Oh well, sacrifices.
By the way, the new characters which I mentioned earlier will show up around page 42 or later. This scene here mostly contains emotional Senanca-Sally moments.
AKA, Senanca being a manipulative shit and desperate Sally buying it.
No more spoilers from here on.

Remember RememberPeople across the pond often explain Britain's "Bonfire Night"/"Guy Fawkes Night" as the UK's version of their July 4th celebration.Remember Remember2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Penchant for detonating sparking, explody things aside, they're not at all similar.
One is about a nation celebrating its independence (or the defeat of alien invaders, depending how strong your grip is on reality) the other is basically a nation trolling terrorists, rubbing their faces in failure.
That the thwarting of the November 5th gunpowder plot is remembered is arguably one of the two reasons why the Brits are universally unafraid of terrorism (the second being that Fair Blighty has faced down the largest war machines the world has ever seen. A random yahoo that wants to blow himself up is an irritant by comparison). You leave the nations of the UK alone and they fight among themselves in a 600mile long drunken brawl. However, if an outside force so much as prods them with a stick in a manner that they find remotely unpleasant, they unify

A New Wind Lifts Storytelling
First imagined as a bedtime tale for his son by Kenneth Grahame in 1908, The Wind in the Willows has remained in the top twenty children’s stories ever since. But things have been getting weird out in the Willows, as the new comic on deviantART, Weirding Willows, will attest to.
Badger, Mole, Ratty and Mr. Toad are back… but they’re joined by Alice, Frankenstein’s Monster, Mowgli, The White Rabbit, Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny as they defend the world from the Wicked Witch of the West, Doctor Moreau, the Mad Hatter, Mister Hyde and the Queen of Hearts (not to mention the flying nightmare monkeys from Wizard of Oz.)

Art in Contemplation of Its Own BecomingDuchamp finds a discarded urinal. He alters it (by signing a name to it not even his own, but obviously “the artist’s”) and names it “The Fountain”. The most mundane, even off-putting, of objects is transformed by Duchamp into art. He submits it for exhibition and it is rejected. You might say the judges “pissed on” his idea. But the idea was born and persisted. Duchamp insisted the object was art because he as an artist presented it as such. “Conceptual Art” was born.Art in Contemplation of Its Own Becoming4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Well, yes you can! No Premium Membership REQUIRED!

When you're ready to move on, mouse over the "The Tag" section.

I have never found a companion who was so companionable as solitude.
Henry David Thoreau
By :icontechgnotic: techgnotic
I I always thought of Thoreau’s comment as simply a word game — clever but ultimately false at its core. A Valentines Day without a Valentine means being alone and alone means being unhappy. It’s taken many years to finally understand the truth in Thoreau’s words. We are never so alone as when in the company of loving family and friends, our Valentine companion held tight in our arms – but knowing we are lost, unfulfilled in our dreams and visions, and untrusting in our own inner counsel. Now I hope to one day seek companions
MaroonedA crowd-funded movie project has recently caught my eye.Marooned2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm a big fan of post-apocalyptica (as most probably already know) so I'm hoping these chaps get the funding they need to complete the project.
It's called "Marooned", and the whole thing is to be filmed in one of the many old Cold War bunkers that litter the English countryside.
Check out the pre-production work. Looks pretty solid!
Wish there were more movies that cover this genre. I've watched those that do a hundred times and am eager for new content!
Devious Journal EntrySomeone went to my Tumblr and asked me why I wasn't posting on DA! Makes me feel like people here actually care about me posting, and I am bad and forget to a lot. Also, I've been ridiculously busy and preoccupied. When I'm in NYC I tend to drop off the internet... There's so much to do there! But I'm in the process of planning out an adventure to California, which I'm pretty excited about. Specifically working towards traveling over New Years Eve, much like I'll be traveling through Christmas Eve night to Chicago. While part of me finds it sad, a bigger part of me is not only relieved but romanticizing being alone during these times. Generally, I like to be alone for long periods of time anyway, and I love the train... so long trips on the train are great for me. A great time for reflecting.Devious Journal Entry4 years ago in Personal More Like This

Tools of the TradeHey guys. I figured I'd go ahead and do a FAQ journal entry. Just a basic list of the tools I'm currently using for my marker work. I have a new tutorial for my markers that I'll post when I'm able to share the art I used for the progress shots. Feel free to fire away with any questions and hopefully, this can be a go to guide for basic info on my tools.

Ok Here goes...
Markers: Prismacolor Cool and French grey markers. I think "Copic" has become another word for "marker" these days, so it's assumed that I'm using Copics for all of my work, but I actually use Prismacolor for all of my figures and detail work and only use Copic markers for backgrounds. I use to use "Warm" greys but I like the sepia look of French more now. I also occasionally use Copic color markers when I'm doing a full color marker piece. Why do I like Prismacolor markers

Theatrics aside, it made me ponder on why Britain has this villainous reputation, and I started to compile a list:
The British Empire was the biggest drug-dealing organisation in history and made a fortune selling opium to China. In the mid 19th century, when the Chinese Emperor tried to stop them, they sent in The Nemesis – basically the Death Star of the era – which proceeded to decimate the entire Chinese fleet. Then they stole Hong Kong.
In an emergency, such as a disaster or terror attack, an intelligence committee is convened. Its codename is “COBRA”.
The British military’s communication network is called “Skynet
