Beware The BatmanI caught the first episode of Beware the Batman.Beware The Batman1 year ago in Personal More Like This
What a pile of rancid, charm-free, cheap-looking, poorly written, spineless, generic pap.
To start with, I hate the character design. There's nothing memorable about anyone you see on screen, with the exception of Batman's strange cranial deformation. It looks like someone's been hitting him over the head with a mallet, which is entirely possible given that Alfred has turned into Cato, from The Pink Panther: randomly attacking his employer to keep him on his toes.
And then we have the villains. Batman has, arguably, the best Rogues Gallery in fiction. It's that which makes his stories so interesting, not the brooding. You'd think with the opening episode, they'd want to start strong, or at least hint at some major threat, lurking in the shadows.
Instead, they give us a man dressed as a pig and a frog-man that burps.
And what's with the f**king laser guns?! If any one franchise is ideal for carrying an anti-gun

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
ZEUGMA The Ancient CityZeugma is an ancient city of Commagene; currently located in the Gaziantep Province of Turkey. It is a historical settlement which is considered among the four most important settlement areas under the reign of the kingdom of Commagene. It was named for the bridge of boats, or Zeugma, which crossed the Euphrates there. The ancient city of Zeugma was originally founded as a Greek settlement by Seleucus I Nicator, one of the generals of Alexander the Great, in 300 BC. King Seleucus almost certainly named the city Seleucia after himself; whether this city is, or can be, the city known as Seleucia on the Euphrates or Seleucia at the Zeugma is disputed. The population in the city at its peak was approximately 80,000. In 64 BC Zeugma was conquered and ruled by the Roman Empire and with this shift the name of the city was changed into Zeugma, meaning "bridge-passage" or "bridge of boats". During Roman rule, the city became one of the attractions inZEUGMA The Ancient City1 year ago in Art Features More Like This

THAT'S RIGHT YOU ARE A SHOE.
THERE'S NOTHING YOU CAN DO ABOUT NOT BEING A SHOE BECAUSE IN MY MIND YOU ARE ONE AND THAT IS MOST UNFORTUNATE.
AS LONG AS I HAVE YOU CONCEPTUALIZED AS A SHOE IN MY IMAGINATION YOU SHALL REMAIN AS SUCH.
THIS MAKES ME WONDER WHETHER ALL PEOPLES AND OBJECTS CAN BE CONCEPTUALIZED AS SHOES AND THUS BECOME SUCH, GRANTING ME ABSOLUTE POWER OVER THEM. DOES SNIPPY HAVE A CLEVER ARGUMENT? NO HE DOESN'T, HE'S A SHOE. SHOES CAN'T HAVE CLEVER ARGUMENTS.
I FEEL LIKE THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD HAS BEEN LIFTED OFF MY SHOULDERS NOW THAT EVERYTHING IS UNDER MY CONTROL, NOW THAT YOU ARE ALL SHOES. I NO LONGER HAVE TO ANSWER TO MY REGRETS AND PAST MISTAKES BECAUSE THEY ARE SIMPLY SHOES.

They're going in the right direction, by making Batman an older, more experienced hero (told you it was a good idea!), but they've cast the wrong guy.
Now there's nothing wrong with Ben Affleck. People badmouth his acting, but I've never had a problem with it. He can also do the super-hero thing. The problem with Daredevil was the script, not the casting. Affleck did a fine job as Matt Murdock, given the tripe he had to work with. He just isn't Batman/Bruce Wayne, though.
On the Keaton-Clooney Scale, he's a full-on George.
He'd make a much better Superman than he would a Batman. He's even played Superman before.....well, he played a guy that played Superman (Hollywoodland, 2006).
The actor I'd have loved to see take the role of the Bat is Jeffrey Dean Morgan. He plays a relentless, gri
Quick Tips: On Referencing AnatomyReference from real life whenever possible.Quick Tips: On Referencing Anatomy3 years ago in Personal More Like This
When you reference or copy from another artist's studies/sketches/art, you may be copying their mistakes as well. Furthermore, an artist's studies are their notes and --just like with history or chemistry notes-- copying someone else's notes will not help you fully understand the material. To completely understand anatomy, you must take your own notes and build your own understanding through observation.
This is probably a no-brainer for many artists but... scruffynerfherder and I were talking about this last night, and with the increase of "anatomy studies" showing up on dA's front page, it's been on my mind. DA's resource category has some great material, but I also feel like there is a lot of misleading information taught by amateurs who really probably shouldn't be teaching things like shading or anatomy, because they have a less-than-stellar grasp on it themselves. I'm not trying to knock anyone here, but it's a bit tr

To try and appease everyone they removed the dreaded DNS blocking part of the bill (which honestly was the one part of the bill which was freaking everyone out), but it didn't help. The DNS blocking was the part of the bill which stated that if a website was suspected of having copyrighted material, even tangentially related, the whole website would be blocked. Even without that, though, the bill was still a horrible unclear mess.
The Obama administration finally stepped in on which side of the fence they were on, and thankfully for us all they were opposed to the bill too ( http://www.whitehouse.gov/blog/2012/01/13/obama-administration-responds-we-people-petitions-sopa-and-online-piracy ).

The difference between critics and insults hereHi thereThe difference between critics and insults here2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I just read a few comments from a particular user here during the last few days and feel the urge to say something about it, so this is going to be a not so positive post, I am sorry for that.
What happend: this person commented on some of my pics in the artistic nude section, complaining about too much nudity, asking what this is all about, why someone should even buy my prints and that i don't do art (cause I photograph nudes as well) and (confusing me with the model) asking why I need to be nude in photos and if I would do that also in general or just when it 'seems' to be artistic.
After answering that person started calling me arrogant (I don't mind that actually, I get to hear that sometimes) and wanted to insult me, by implying that I must be stupid / unable to understand what he is saying, cause I am a girl / because I am young, I must be arrogant and considering myself as a true artist without a reason for that and asking if i shoot nudes to show my professional work.
Why I Dislike the TeslaIt seems that I am the only one out there who genuinely and honestly dislikes the Tesla car. People hype it, tout it and promote it and they declare that they would love to own one but in all honesty I would not take it for free. I mean I might take it for free and resell it to some Tesla disciple enthusiast and use the money to buy a real car, with a real engine, real range and a real pedigree ( Aston Martin, Porsche,Jaguar and such come to mind). I just really dislike the Tesla and dislike what it stands for. To me the Tesla is the face of the new America, lots of hype, lots of empty promises based on a design that is nothing new and with no actual real world application, range, or physical potential of ever being anything more than a hype master's gimmick.Why I Dislike the Tesla2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Prithvi's Mental ConflictIf you have taken interest in me, then you would notice that I have pulled most of the nude photographs of myself from my gallery. The plague of my own mind has ridden me with fear, primarily I fear for my image, since this is not my career & wish to obtain a job amongst regular society eventually. It seems that many often conglomerate nudity with promiscuity. While these two elements may have some just associations, they should not be confused with one another. I believe that the quality & tastefulness of the photo generally reflects either an element of beauty & art, or an element more connotative of pornography & debauchery. I have witnessed the over-optimistic rhetoric of the typical Deviant. However, this over-optimism leaves me wondering whether I am actually casting an unflattering light on myself without realizing it.Prithvi's Mental Conflict2 years ago in Personal More Like This

I used to attend a particular conference on an annual basis, and so I got to (casually) know the other "regulars" who also used to be there. Every year, more or less, I'd see the same group of people at the speakers' dinner, and we could catch up on the usual "what are you up to these days?" kind of stuff. One of the guys I used to see fairly often was a tall heavy-set fellow (some might call him "fat" or "obese") he'd always been tall, bearded, and big, to me. But one year, he showed up and he had lost a lot of weight. It took me a second to recognize him, and I said, "Hey, Rich! You look great! You've lost a lot of weight!" and he looked at me and deadpanned, "Yeah, pancreatic cancer will do that."
Do I need to belabor the point? I will. First off, I set myself up for a massive head-fuck, by making assumptions about what was going on in someone else's life, and - even though I was being friendly about it - I was horribly wro
Happy SurprisesIt's funny how the little things can make such a big impact to a person. About two years ago, I was at Starbucks (in uniform), waiting to make my order. Taking advantage of my obliviousness, someone farther up the line had set up a prepaid card for me with a little note, thanking me for my service. Never did get the chance to thank them. It meant a lot, because, at the time, I was a single active-duty mother - a challenge no one should have to go through. Starbucks was a rare spoiled treat. Having someone do something so nice after having just gone through so much hell at that time was...well...amazing. I still carry that card in my wallet to this day. Whenever my funds allow, I treat some random stranger, be it at Starbucks, McDonalds, whatever.Happy Surprises2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Of course, it isn't fair in the least to refer to these wonderfully instructional forums as "stupid" because there truly is a copious amount of information disseminated during the eons of hours you sit through.

What I WILL address is the idea of our Constitutional "right to bear arms". The misconstrued perception of this "right", saddens and confuses me. The archaic belief that having a gun in our houses will enable us to "defend ourselves" is not only statistically improbable, it is metaphorically AND literally unsettling to those who live with us. A loaded gun in a house says,"I don't trust people", "I am afraid someone will break in and hurt us", and also "I am willing to shoot to kill another human being".
If you have a gun in your house and it is NOT loaded, the statistical probability of you being able to get to it, load it, and confront a home invader AND for the outcome of that confrontation to be positive in ANY way, is insignificantly small.

Surely the thousands of people looking at this photo have enough common sense to Google "Elle Alexandra" and can determine on their own that Elle is obviously of age.
