There is always a reason. A level of insult. An unprovoked assault. A threat of invasion. A refusal to negotiate in good faith. A refusal to compromise. There is always something so unbearable that it must be righted with no more delay and by any means, by even the last means, necessary. That final means is war.
Ever since mankind became able to produce and possess more than necessary for survival, there has been a surplus of resources. It is the treasure that has built our civilization and shaped the special magic and glory of what it is to be a human being.
The struggle for control and division of that treasure sometimes infects men’s minds with a unique

I have been away on a hiatus and with my return I have decided that it is now time to say goodbye to the Ask-Kuroshitsuji project and the Claude Faustus ask account. I have had such a wonderful experience here with everyone and I have enjoyed getting to know everyone that has interacted with the group and this account throughout the duration of my administration.
I would like to have stayed but, it is time to pass on the torch carrying the light of this account to someone new now. It has been a great ride and I have met so many wonderful people and made some great friends along the way and I will miss all of you terribly! I hope you will all take to the new administrator of Claude as much and as well as you did me and welcome them to the ask family and the Ask-Kuro project just as warmly and openly as I was welcomed <3

Robin Williams, Depression, and a Thank YouI honestly didn’t mean to come back so suddenly, but the news from earlier today just hit home very hard and I felt the need to say something to y’all.Robin Williams, Depression, and a Thank You9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Robin Williams Passes Away
Robin Williams passes away today at the relatively young age of 63. The earliest reports so far seem to confirm that it was a suicide by asphyxiation. He had been battling severe depression for quite some time now, and it seems that it ultimately did him in. Robin Williams was one of the first actors who’s career I began to follow as a kid, owing largely to his involvement in Disney’s Aladdin as the Genie.
I remember a story Stephen Spielberg told about when he was filming Schindler’s List. While over in Germany, Robin Williams would call Stephen up every night to tell him a joke because the story of Schindler’s List was so depressing and difficult to film Stephen needed the pick-me-ups.
It’s incredibly sad that Robin ultimately took his own life lik
Collection: Snowed InCollection: Snowed In5 months ago in Art Features More Like This
There is no more stark dichotomy than the conflicting feelings we have about the wintertime. Many find the snow–blanketed landscape makes winter the most serenely beautiful of the seasons. But people die of exposure in the cold. The idea of being “snowed in” evokes thoughts of fireplaces and hot chocolate and snuggling under piles of blankets, of family reunions and gift–giving, and taking an annual “time–out.”
But it also means lost work hours and school days and danger should someone need to go to the hospital through white–out conditions on ice–glazed roads. Winter is the most beautiful but also the

The New Street Photographer's ManifestoFebruary 7, 2013/by techgnoticThe New Street Photographer's Manifesto2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Street photographer Henri Cartier-Bresson called it the “decisive moment”— the captured instant when all the photograph’s elements come together to tell a story in a way a text narrative of thousands of words could never begin to. It is what hooks people, both practitioners and advocate-devotees, on the art form. It is uniquely completely immersive in life— step out into the streets— in which the moment of artistic epiphany can never be guessed at until it suddenly happens. When it is properly mastered, it is as pure as the dawn of each new day, as true as the living organism of a teeming street scene catching a breath as one.

The common misconceptionWhen giving workshops last weekend, I was confronted with something at least remarkable.The common misconception10 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I had a random chat with a girl that apparently knew me from DeviantArt. We a friendly conversation about art such. It wasn't that strange, until she concluded her message with.
"It's nice talking to you. I always wanted to know what you were like. You know... since you draw so well"
And I was like... "Huh? What?"
Some people see me as a talented writer or artist, others (including myself) raise the bar even higher.
But regardless of what you see as skilled or not, I don't think there's such a thing as 'them' and 'us' in the art world. It's too small of a world. We're too alike. And I think most of us aren't exactly prone to living a celebrity lifestyle anyway. Bitches & bling don't match well with the usually quiet lifestyle an artist prefers.
When I started doing painting, I looked up to many of the lo

The standard tail pattern is 35 inches long, measured from your belt to the tip. They can be made shorter or longer upon request. They hang from doubled belt loops, also made of chainmail (as seen here: http://fav.me/d6f4yaj ). They tend to weigh a bit under 4 pounds, which gives them a nice weight when worn, but is not so heavy that they are uncomfortable.
Tails start at $250. This base price covers scales in stainless steel, or anodized aluminum in any color. Fancier metals will increa

Conquer your artblockI think every artist out here has experienced it at least one time in their career: the so called artblock. A moment of total lack of inspiration that suddenly hits you, and leaves you unable to create. Most often the solution is to just wait. Most artblocks will solve automatically with time. But there are circumstances in which an artblock doesn't automatically disappear, or when you have deadlines to catch. In that case, you might be helped by some basic tips to conquer your artblock.Conquer your artblock10 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Over the years, I've experienced an artblock (or writersblock, as they call it for fiction writers) many, many times. Most of them were short, but the longest lasted over 2 years. Most of them solved on their own. But sometimes I just needed that little bit of extra help. Therefore, I made a list with a few tips and tricks to make your artblock go away. Hopefully it'll help you as well as it did me.

How I (Finally) Got Good SkinI get lots of compliments on my skin in my photos. I got told yesterday on my latest set how nice it was. I won't ever deny it; I use photoshop to take out distracting blemishes, but for the most part, my skin is how you see it. I wanted to go into a bit more depth on how I got to this place.

My skin was not always baby-smooth. Throughout my teenage years I had what is known as cystic acne. Life was depressing. I can't say which kind of acne is worse, all-over surface type, or one single giant zit-from-hell in the middle of your forehead. I had the second kind. I was extremely self-concious, and I wouldn't have dared to take stock photos had I not found a way to clear up my skin. Day-to-day, I took my stress out by picking at my skin. You can't see it in my photos now, but I do have some permanent damage from skin-picking. It's a reminder that self-harm is self-harm. You don't have to be taking a razorblade to you

Diary Entry #2It's been a few days since I've settled in. The Far North isn't far from the Crystal Empire, so I'm currently in the empire for a few more hours. After I got off the train, it happened that Shining Armor, Princess Twilight Sparkle's brother, was making rounds and he recognized me from an earlier conversation awhile back. When I told him I really didn't buy a hotel room yet, he took me to the palace! I got to meet Princess Cadence finally, and she was quite surprised to see a male alicorn. They're such a nice couple, too. I will definitely have to find a way to repay them later on.Diary Entry #22 years ago in Personal More Like This

The Last of Us: Equestria((Soooooo I figured I should probably write down what Equestria is like in Joel's universe and what infected ponies resemble and whatnot. This isn't going to be written in detailed story format. Just a bit of quick exposition.))The Last of Us: Equestria2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The infection started what is equivalent to twenty human years ago. Guards had brought a strange pony to the castle from the Everfree forest. The pony's eyes were glazed over and it fought with all its might to take a bite out of the guards. Said pony was patient zero, having discovered some kind of strange fungus in an unexplored part of the forest. This pony was taken to the highest scholars and magicians in all of Equestria to be examined. However, after applying a sleep spell and planning a surgery to discover the source of whatever this magic resistant disease was, the patient's interior burst into a cloud of spores, effectively infecting every pony in the room, the princess of the sun included. The newly infected equines began to attack other ponies aroun
