Congress to Debate CISPA Behind Closed Doorshttp://www.techdirt.com/articles/20130402/02291422544/congress-planning-to-debate-cispa-behind-closed-doors-no-public-scrutiny-allowed.shtml "We've been hearing for a while that when the planned markup occurs next week for CISPA, that the House Intelligence Committee is intending to hold a closed markup, basically hiding the discussion and the possible amendments from the public. There is no good reason for this. The Intelligence Committee will claim, of course, that it needs to do this so that confidential information can be discussed in debating the markup, but that's hogwash. There are numerous concerns with the bill that can and should be addressed publicly. If there are key concerns about classified info getting out, that's easy enough to avoid, since so much that CISPA touches on has nothing to do with classified info -- and whatever comes up can be dealt with appropriately.

A Brief Discussion About Tonal ContrastTraditional Art WeekA Brief Discussion About Tonal Contrast7 months ago in Art Features More Like This
In last Traditional Week, we talked about the elements which if you ignore can destroy your painting and all your hardwork.
What Ruins A Painting?
Contrast and Values were one main element that either can make your works fruitful or ruin it. It needs to be discussed more broadly as a lot of new artists have trouble to establish a good tonal contrast. Result? Despite their brilliant artistic skills, the picture does not pop up! It looks dull, muted. That is not the fault of the drawing or skills, it's the lack of observation and understanding lights.
Contrast is the difference between two values which helps you to dis

Okay for a few weeks now I've had art block, which as I'm sure you all know, is not very fun. The only problem is, I need to come up with a dragon design for my story! But As I'm lacking in both the written and drawing ability right now, I need some help.
So why not do a contest?
The aim of the game is pretty basic. Read the guidelines below, and design a dragon based off of it! I'll pick the winner, but there will be two special mentions too, because I'm nice like that.
By me. And my parents. Don't ask.
I'll probably use a system of points, 'so many for this, so many for that' etc.

What's WRONG with the Westboro Babtist Church?!?!?For those who don't know about this "religious" group, just check out the Wikipedia about them:What's WRONG with the Westboro Babtist Church?!?!?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now that's out of the way and you all know about these despicable people, let's get down to the main point of this journal.
Most of you know about the horrible elementary school shooting that occurred in Connecticut. Well, the WBC wants to crash the funerals of the victims' of the shooting because they believe that God willed the shooting in order to punish the people of Connecticut for allowing gay marriage.
Okay, seriously, what the fuck? I am not religious but if God did exist, I can guarantee that he would not approve of the mindless murder of twenty-eight people just because of the legalization of gay marriage.
The people who run the WBC are heartless individuals who just want to force their selfish and twisted beliefs upon others. They don't represent the Christian religion and they most certainly don't represent God.
