All I want for Christmas...I have had several journals that started out with a sort of disclaimer or apology for being less than tolerant of religion. This time, I don't justify, apologize, or disclaim anything.
Nigeria, in the last decade or so has seen thousands of people die because they were Muslim OR Christian. They are killing each other by the hundreds with guns, machetes, or whatever means available. Women and children slain in their homes because they were a different religion. What possible God sees this as OK? OH perhaps it's the god that commands his followers to kill thousands and thousands of people in the Bible. Seems like the same one to me.
There are property rights and what the government refers to as "indigeneship" in Nigeria. It means whoever was first to live on a particular parcel of land, has the rights to it. Add to this law of "indigeneship" the fact that Nigeria now produces a LOT of oil and you have the makings of a war. Ironically, the "democratic" government has embezzled four t

Here are some of the things we are looking for in a mascot; these are just some ideas, so don't let your design be restricted by us!
She must be FEMALE. This is a group for anime female art after all!:iconilavplz:
Just like our members, she is an artist who is still experimenting with ideas and testing

"Whatcha need, chum?"
I eyed the impeccably dressed man leaning on my desk next to me. It was Seth Green in an Armani suit. He smelled like citrus and campfire smoke.
"From you? Nothing. Nobody called you."
"The hell you did." He snatched my legal pad away, eyed my scrawled lines with pursed lips. "Looks like a summoning to me."
"Just doodling." I snatched it back.
He stood, held up his hands. "Close enough. So, I'll repeat the question... whatcha neeeeed?"
"And I'll repeat my response: 'nothing from you'. Scram."
"Awww, Ralfy, is that any way to treat a guest?" He flopped on my office sofa, scaring the cat. We both watched her flee the room. The demon grinned at me.
"It's late. Just going to bed," I tried.
"No no, you were thinking of writing a story."
"Maybe," I allowed. "What's it to you?"

I'm really happy we were finally able to have a proper photoshoot for Rurouni Kenshin! This won't be the last one, though - our friends will be joining us in the future as other characters. The weather has recently been unpredictable and often horrible, but we felt as though the sun shone just for us that day.

Morrowind FeatureMorrowind Feature3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The Elder Scrolls III Morrowind is my favourite game of all time, and it will always hold a special place in my heart. I've been planning for awhile to put together a game-inspired feature; unfortunately, it is very hard to find genuine fan art since most Morrowind-related deviations on dA are game screenshots (or manipulations thereof), and I found only a limited number of devs I could use.
For those unfamiliar with the game, Morrowind is an open-ended first-person RPG with an expansive and detailed world, released in 2002. The central plot concerns the deity Dagoth Ur, housed within the volcanic Red Mountain, who seeks to gain power and break Morrowind free from Imperial reign. In addition to the extensive main quest, there are detailed discursive quests for a variety of factions, including various guilds, religious organizations, and aristocratic houses.
Lord Voryn Dagoth had been a good friend of Lord Indoril Nerevar, but they tu

Also, I suck. Everyone is better than me. Including Romano. And especially Germania. Who is not Legolas. Or a woman.
Girl PartsThere are about a million and one names for girl parts. I'm not even going to list the ones I DO know. But I find it a bit frustrating that there isn't a word that rolls off my tongue in a way that expresses how I feel about those precious areas.Girl Parts4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have sort of settled on "Pussy". To me, it is endearing, has an old charm, and is just a tad naughty.
Anyone who takes even a casual stroll through my gallery will see many shots of pussies. Close ups. Detailed close ups.
WTF you might ask.
Some years ago a model came in to shoot nudes and asked me not to shoot any images where her pussy lips showed. I asked her why since we were shooting NUDES! She said she thought her pussy was ugly. My heart sank. Why would a lovely young model ever be made to feel that ANY part of her anatomy was ugly? Where did that concept originate? What kept that belief alive? Who said what to her?
I told her I thought it was beautiful and asked her if I could take a photo, as I saw it, and show it to her. Much to my
Changing of the Guard"Yeah! That's pretty cool. Needs more explosions, though."Changing of the Guard3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I considered, nodding slowly. "Roger that: more explosions. You're sure it's not just gratuitous gun porn?"
Seth Green, my writing muse, held his arms wide while grinning at me. "Are you kidding, man? You should write nothing but stuff like this from now on!"
There came a rustling noise from behind Seth. I craned to see beyond him, into the darkness of my office, and seeing my reaction he turned too. But not quickly enough.
Strong, dark hands grabbed him by the chin and forehead, wrenched with a sickening crunch. Seth crumpled instantly, a surprised look on his face, my mysterious intruder holding him by the arm pits.
I leaped from my office chair but calm eyes bore into mine, forcing me back down. I watched as she dragged Seth's body effortlessly from my office. The sound of a dum
Japan Trip....more daysNote to self: Getting up early does not mix well with late night drinking. The good news is, I think I'm on track for setting a new personal record for consecutive days with a hang over wait is that good news? It's amazing to me that you can buy beer in vending machines everywhere here. Ugh it's 6:30AM, I'll pass on the beer .for now.Japan Trip....more days4 years ago in Personal More Like This
My legs are sore from walking about 2,000 miles yesterday and my feet already hurt. I love it.
This morning, after crashing a little after 2AM, we got up at 6:30AM to catch the bullet train to Osaka. The train stops several times, so it doesn't always get up to the incredible speeds other ones do. We'll be on one this Sunday that tops out at about 180MPH! It's hard to describe the funny experiences one has on the subways and trains. The crazy visuals of passing another train going the opposite direction when you are only a foot or so apart. Ah these Japanese are so precise. The trains displace so much air that when we
Shedding Light on SexismI hope you have all had a good holiday season. Perhaps all of you have seen these great ads floating around on the internet, but in case you haven't, here they are.Shedding Light on Sexism1 year ago in Personal More Like This
A Pantene (shampoo) commercial airing only in the Philippines makes light of double standards about men and women in society:
An AMAZING public service ad that aired in India. I believe that everyone needs to see this. It sheds light on that oppessive, ever-pervasive male gaze that women can never escape. If only the creepy gawkers knew how it feels...
I think that both of these ads should be aired in more places than just the Philippines and India respectively. These are problems faced by women all over the world.
And as long as we are on the topic of sexism, here is an article that I found
