Supers V Wonder by JoshJ81
The collective fan community sigh of relief that a female director has been chosen to bring the Amazonian Goddess to life on the big screen has been echoing across the web ever since Monday’s announcement that Michelle McClaren had won that coveted crown. Here at DA HQ, we can’t help but imagine what Joss Whedon might have done with the character.
Pray no one involved in the Catwoman movie gets close to it.

Kafka's Joke BookKafka's Joke Book1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Regarded as one of the most influential writers of the 20th century, Franz Kafka is best known today as "that guy who wrote a story about some dude turning into a cockroach." Working with themes of alienation, the fantastic made mundane, and parent-child conflict, his works are populated with well meaning characters caught in the crossroads of tragedy, surrealism, and existentialism.
And yet, Kafka himself considered his works funny, supposedly laughing out loud among friends when reading and sharing his work. Indeed, when read in the right mindframe, the ironic circumstances and black comedy of Kafka's nightmarish worlds can and will provoke a chuckle of two, even as events continue spiraling out of control.
Thus, I will be presenting you today with Kafka's Joke Book, a McSweeny's article written by comic and stand-up comedian John McNamee, who you may know for his work, Pie.
10 Ways to Improve the Quality of our PhotomanipsOn the "decline" of quality in the photomanipulation gallery10 Ways to Improve the Quality of our Photomanips1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I've seen a lot of polls, journals, etc. recently about the quality of the photomanipulation gallery and fears that it has declined. I have intentionally not commented, but I will address the issue here. I think our beloved community is going through a "learning phase" where we are rediscovering ourselves and our art. We have a lot-- a LOT-- of new people, and I want to wish them a warm welcome because they are critical to our vitality as a community..
In turn, a lot of our older, more experienced artists have moved on, frequently owing to time constraints due to having more commissions and freelance work.
So, saying our quality has declined is really not fair. Rather, we are in a cycle of change that happens every couple of years within our community.
It is perhaps true that we have reached a collective slump in creativity. Like inspires like, and I see the same thing over and
ARTGERMINATION - My Digital Art ChatroomARTGERMINATION - My Digital Art Chatroom3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Many people has asked me about the rationale behind my nickname - Artgerm in many occasions. To me it is more than just a nick, it is actually my mission statement in my art journey, which I would like to see people get "infected" by my works and inspire them to create art. I've been drawing for the past 20 years, in which 16 years in digital medium. Art has already been part of my life long time ago - it is my passion, my profession and my life. Although majority of my time has been devoted to the commercial projects and my family and leave me very little time to impart my art knowledge to others outside of my studio, my mission statement has never and will never change.
As a result, I've decided to setup a deviantArt chatroom recently called Artgermination for all digital art discussions, which I put in a good amount of my time daily to interact with other dA members, sharing with them my journey in art and con
Naruto Uzumaki Pairing Meme (JuPMod's Thoughts)This journal has taken several days to write-up. As all my Watchers should know by now, several days ago, Eggheadcobra had made a NarutoPairing meme which Naruto fans can tell everyone which Naruto pairing they love, like, dislike, etc. Given I'm a NarutoPairing fan (I only pair off the girls with Naruto. I really do not have feelings for any other Naruto guy.), I jumped on the bandwagon to use the meme to tell what I feel about certain Naruto pairings.Naruto Uzumaki Pairing Meme (JuPMod's Thoughts)3 months ago in Personal More Like This
So I did the meme and posted it in my gallery ( Naruto Uzumaki Pairing Meme (JuPMod's choices) ). Yet I had wanted to also give my explanations to my choices, yet I knew it would be take time to write-up and that it will take up too much space in the description. So I'd decided to write everything on WordPad and copy-and-paste to Journal.
So here it is! My NarutoPairing meme with all the pairing explanations below.

The One True King of KingsIt’s amazing how a 60-year-old product of postwar nuclear paranoia can still be so important to people’s lives to this day. I have a lot to thank Godzilla for, so much to the point that, if I had a gun to my head, and had to declare a religion (ANY religion), I’d point at the Big Guy and say “That one.”The One True King of Kings1 year ago in Personal More Like This
That’s right. My god can beat up your god.
Anywho, it’s also amazing to see where Godzilla is now compared to…man, even 10 years ago. And ESPECIALLY 16 years ago. We’ve essentially seen this character tried to be taken down and twisted into something he’s not, and then rise from the beaten, bruised ashes only when a meek British director reminded everyone that we just need to step back and let him be Godzilla.
A favorite quote of mine, from the series, is the line from Godzilla and Mothra: Battle for the Earth (1992).
"This is beyond our present knowledge or understanding."

Some things you might not know about your everyday lamp:
1. I don't have a set identity. People often refer to me as being both male & female; a lamp is my preference most of the time. To many, especially on deviantArt, I am faceless, and will remain that way indefinitely.
2. I study to become a Civil Engineer; I will soon design the internal infrastructure of buildings.
3. I am deeply passionate but only in regards to a very very select few people and things.
4. Rabbits are my favourite. RABBITS ARE MY FAVOURITE. I don't care if that makes me a pansy.
5. My characters Hollowgaze & Cranestep were originally created to represent two very different sides of myself; their stories hold parallels to my own life.
6. I have a passion for baking that is met with a lot of fire and disappointment. But I like to think I make some damn good cookies.
7. I hate mangoes. You do not even understand how much I hate them. If Satan we
Update About My CANCERIt's been awhile since I updated anything, so I wanted to let you guys know whats I've been up to with the treatment and how I'm doing. As always, a huge Thanx to everyone for all your support and prayers and throughout my battle.Update About My CANCER3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Since my last update, I went through two chemo sessions so far. They are Mon thru Friday and last 6hrs a day. I just finished up my latest week and I'm in recovery right now. Just getting back into it and fighting the heavy nausea. Ive been through it before and each day it gets better as I fight the fatigue and the nausea.
As for the chemo, it's the roughest they can give me according to the Doc, which is fine, especially if it can win the battle for me like it did the last time in my previous battles with this cancer. The Tumor count for me right now is at 8 and the Doc is looking into me getting a new PET Scan maybe next week to see if the chemo has shrunk any of them so far. If so, I'll then continue my rounds of the chemo and then prepare for the radi
Character of the WeekAoCharacter of the Week1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Ao is a creature known as a nevenem, capable of shifting between a bigger and a larger frame depending on the situation. The bigger form is called upon when needing to hunt and intimidate other creatures, while the smaller form is more swift and nimble.
Ao is a fairly social creature in personality, but has been tempered with necessary caution due to the rough environment that he's grown in. His species are definitely solitary in nature, and are prone to fighting whenever encountering one another.
Ao communicates via telepathy, so if you see his mouth moving, it's most likely because something's stuck in his teeth~

Everyone has heard of it, everyone fears the very sight of it, but if you are an artist, there is a good chance it creeps at you regularly, more often than a flu, in various forms and intensity; in psychology, Frustration is a common emotional response to opposition / obstacle, is related to anger and disappointment and its strength depends on the size of the established challenge. When Frustration calls you more often than your mother does, it's time to take an action!
1. - TAKE A WALK
Try to get your feelings straight by walking it out of your system. Is it raining or snowing? Even better, get soaked and dry out.
2. - SHIFT YOUR FOCUS
Sleep on it. Make yourself busy with small repetitive tasks, watch a good movie or comedy, play a game, visit your family or a friend, cook a new recipe, get a haircut, tidy up your room or house, watch a documentary, have a chocolate, take a horse ridi
