The Committed Canvas:icontechgnotic:The Committed Canvas3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Tattooing has existed since the very beginnings of Neolithic human expression and has since those ancient beginnings continued to be a reliable flash indicator of personality type. There are those people who get tattoos and there those people who simply do not. Even though the social opprobrium for getting inked has greatly disappeared in recent years, and even though skin art has become almost boringly de rigueur amongst rock guitarists and other entertainers, there is still one element that separates the tattooed from the non-tattooed in terms of artistic appreciation: commitment.
Tattoos may be the first “interactive” art form. The art lover doesn’t just buy an artist’s artwork – he or she becomes one with artwork, he or she commits to becoming a living canvas for the artwork, he or she, by choosing the tattoo to be borne forever, shares authorship with the tattoo artist of the artwork.

OK, not really. They're turning part of the old facility into a cyberspace security and learning centre, to inspire the next generation of codebreakers.
Station X, AKA Bletchley Park, was the secret installation which housed the codebreaking unit who cracked Enigma in WW2, and was where the world's first programmable computer was built.
The site fell into disrepair after the war. With the Soviets a very real threat after 1945, Churchill ensured that Station X and its activities were kept under wraps, just in case a new war began in which they would be needed.
It wasn't until the 1970s that the public learned of Bletchley Park's wartime activities.
They're finally turning the place into a museum.

They set up a new one. One which they use to rattle off whatever flatulance they believe passes as worthwhile commentary in the real world, most likely in the wake of mummy and daddy slapping them on the wrist over something - angsty, juvenile pricks that they are.
And juvenile they must be, as anyone with a mite more experience would realise that any weight you hope your words might have is completely lost when someone visits your "slander" profile and reads the numbers "0 Deviations", "0 Favourites", "0 Watchers", "No Journal entries", etc.
It renders your words as vacuous as your gallery.
So if you're going to type stuff like "I feel like some of the smut you draw takes away from the credibility of your art as a whole." or

PE: Developing your personal styleDeveloping your personal stylePE: Developing your personal style1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
You obviously love to create, you do it often and now the time has come when you realize that this is no fling, this is something you would want to do for the whole life. You can learn a lot about techniques from numerous sources, you can find the right audience on the internet but there is one thing nobody can help you with but yourself - how to gain a specific style of your own?
What is a personal painting style?
- It's an identifiable style that enables the viewer to determine that the artwork was done by you
- In some cases, your style can be viewed as an extension of your personality
How can one develop it?
- Developing your style takes time, time and time once again. Don't have the time? No style for you!
- It's not acquirable in an art class. While it can be helpful to study by an assistance of someone who's m

♥Me and my family usually aren't all in the house together in the morning at the same time. So I asked my mom if she'd make an Egyptian breakfast cuz egyptian breakfasts are yummy. so she went to a place that has middle eastern food and we just finished breakfast. i think i'll be content for the next 5 hours. blahh tummy.
♥i found out that apparently i'm a lil turkish. i always thought i was just egyptian. but apparently my dads mom and grandmother were turkish so he's half turkish. and my nina from my moms side is half turkish. so i don't know how much turkish that makes me not a lot but its still cool. i always loved turkish food its muy delicioso.

I will still be back on a lot.
But yeh. Over the past two weeks, Three so-called "friends" two of which, I have been close with for over 4 years, and Maddi. -.- (Who I have talked about before, you guys know how/who she is. .-.) Started childish drama.. Because you know, apparently I called them "Typical Delhi Kids." and said that they are "pot heads", and other little-kid things. When the actual truth is, I was sitting with my older sister, and my best friend Kelsey.. and explained how they all get mad because I "don't hang out with them/talk to them." You have to understand where I live, ALL the teenagers, and even the youngin's.. Walk around Delhi, all day, find ways to get in trouble, they get kicked out of stores, smoke weed, and stuff like that. And they're mad because I was raised better than that.. and I don't WANT to be that sort of person,

Finding that motivationAfter you watch a certain film, or read a certain book, or play a certain game... do ever get the sudden urge to take some sort of action?Finding that motivation2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For example; Has watching a band documentary made you suddenly want to go pick up a guitar and strum out a little tune? Has reading an autobiography ever made you want to go out and write about your own life?
I get this all the time. If I see something I like, I instantly get the urge to get up and take action. As I get that feeling of motivation, I must get up and pause the video so I can play my guitar. If I am reading a comic book and suddenly get inspired, I have to grab a pen and paper and start drawing out different designs and characters. If I read a book that I like, I have to go to the computer and start to write up ideas for my own novel.
So, can I use this as a tool for when I have writers block?
Will putting on that video that makes me want to be James Hetfield, playing to sold out stadiums help me write some more kick ass guitar riffs?

After a period of personal struggles, where my life feels as though some giant green martian has picked up with a single alien hand and thrown me sideways straight out of the window of the universe, where I had to fight 3 headed dragons, giant bug monsters and the mightiest of all the monstrous man-eating mantees single handedly and climb over the steepest of steep mountains in an attempt to sneak inside the back door of reality... I return to you today.
I return with golden promises of great journal posts full of passion, rage, wit and intelligence, sheer awesomeness and a extra large helping of... pure babble. The truth is, I am back. There is no-one to stop me now. No-one is to stop me from posting paragraphs full of over exaggerated metaphors that drag on into long paragraphs that slowly and surely detach from the point and follow down the ever so surreal path of utter rubbish, twisting and turning until we both forget what the point of it

Atheism - the religion of marxismReligion is a prerogative for the human society, an incessant need that stems from the way our psyche had been formed for millenia a set of synergetic rituals, beliefs and ethos, that coordinates the way we interact with the world. Religion is a language within a language, and thus, describes ones worldview. In one way or another, we all subscribe to some form of religion, not necessarily organized or strictly theistic.Atheism - the religion of marxism2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A systematic belief, encompassing all aspects of life and interaction with the world, including a set of dogmas and rules to follow, is a religion, I think anyone would agree. Religion is different from simple spiritualistic belief because aside from the enlightmenet about supernatural matters, it also sets rules of conduct in a man's daily life. Every religion has that element it tells a person what kind of life he should lead, what is encouraged, and what is prohibited.
Lots of people say that atheism cannot be a religion, because it's a disbelief in the

I get a lot of people saying how I″m a stupid ignorant fuck, how I″m horrible. When I see all the propaganda about how the world is great place with everyone of us, how every person matters, I know it″s not about me. I know, ultimately, that people that profess the most openmindedness out there, would rather see me dead and assraped in prison due to my opinions, and then they″d piss on my grave and say it″s well-deserved. Sometimes, very rarely, I reflect on it, and realize, that were I killed (that was a possibility once) or offed myself, there″d be none of those fancy candellight vigils and "OMG THIS DUDE DIED FOR THE TRUTH".
On one hand, I think it″s justified, because I wouldn″t give my enemy no quarter either – on the other hand it serves as a great reminder that in the face of the enemy, loss ain″t an option. It″s not about toughness – it&
