Leaderless Revolution for the 21st CenturyA little while ago, I read a book called The Leaderless Revolution: How Ordinary People will Take Power and Change Politics in the 21st Century by Carne Ross, a former member of the British Foreign Office and delegate of the UK mission to the UN who left his job after seeing how so-called "representatives" represent themselves and the interests of their biggest supporters (such as multinational corporations) rather than the people of the society who elected them or who they were appointed to represent. Ross believes that this removal of agency from the people themselves to representatives, and the alienation it causes, is responsible for much of the conflict in the world. Therefore, he supports a leaderless consensus-based directly democratic government, i.e., anarchism. He gives precedents for this type of government in societies from pre-industrial tribes to the anarchist communes of Spain in the 1930s, the latter being the subject of George Orwell's panegyric HoLeaderless Revolution for the 21st Century4 years ago in Personal More Like This

The following is an extensive guide to the different Labels a Lesbian may have. In my experience I have come across many Lesbians who just thought they were a Lesbian. This guide was at first for TheLesbianClub's Chatroom Classes, but I have decided that this could benefit not only the club but many people out there. If you are a Lesbian and questioning what type of Lesbian you are, then this guide is for you!

KEEP IN MIND THAT I'M NOT THE BEST AND MY PONY ANATOMY ISN'T PERFECT. THESE VIDEOS ARE TO SHOW YOU HOW I DRAW PONIES FOR MY ART AND COMICS. TO GIVE YOU A GOOD IDEA ON HOW TO GO ABOUT DRAWING PONIES FOR YOURSELF.
If you decide to start drawing, keep in mind that your not going to be great at it when you first try. Believe me I couldn't draw ponies to save my life, but I keep at it and look at me now.
Don't give up, as long as you keep it up you'll soon be drawing ponies in no time. Also don't treat art as a chore, have fun with it.
Also use References to help you out, don't be ashamed to use them. Also check out this link for helpful pony anatomy sketches http://gunrunnersarsenal.tumblr.com/post/17039753243/tutorial-stuff-which-can-be-really-usefull

It may be long but it will help you understand what every artist goes through, so your not alone.

On my profile page, I feature a new deviation every day (or two or three). The piece is usually something that caught my eye. Could be an amazing digital painting, a fun stamp, a quick photograph that made me smile, perhaps a piece for a weekly theme, whatever. However, it moved me enough to share it with my visitors. Below is a list of the artists which I featured during February 2013. I am showcasing different pieces from their gallery in the hope of showing them a bit more love.

Be one of the first 14 people commenting on this journal entry, and I will put your avatar and three deviations that I will personally select from your gallery in this "Share the Art" feature.
IMPORTANT: If you do comment, you're expected to do the same in your own journal; putting me on the first place, completing the list with 14 other people to make a sum of 15 people..
The idea behind this is NOT to get a free feature, but to help spread art and artists around for everyone. So why not check out the artists on other peoples' list?

Oh my foot is healing nicely by the way. I can walk on it again and the pain mostly gone. But, misfortune love company (bad news part).
My family and I were driving back from an extended family gathering for my fathers birthday. We were driving back on Hwy 6 in Utah (top 15 dangerous roads in the us), when the car in front of us didn't quite make the turn and hit an on coming car, spinning it out towards us. We were almost able to get out of the way but it hit my side of car. Everyone is okay who was involved in the crash.
I guess I need to write this out to get it out of my system.
Words to live byI continually hope that someday I'll get a chance to pass on everything I've learned. There hardly seems a moment considering living by my words only means having absolutely no time to say them.

Never let anyone tell you that something is impossible.
I lived by that when it sparked in me the possiblity of achieving something despite everyone telling me it being impossible otherwise. People have always told me it's impossible, that it's been tried. If you know what I'm talking about then your already on your way. What I will say to you ignore those who've been defeated by what they call "experience." Keep going and don't let anyoen tell you otherwise.
I know this might sound familiar even, never give up etc. But it's how I live my life even currently as there still are more "experienced" people who will criticize that I'm doing it wrong. It's the human spirit that'll keep us alive. This rings true to the events of my life, w

Let me start off by apologize for the long time it is taking me to come out with the next Chapter. I guess it a little writers block in the details of the chapter, especially the some of the dialog exchanges. I have an overall "road map" of the path I want this chapter to follow and where it will end up. It just the parts of the journey that don't sit right with me.
Along with my writer's block, the real world is starting to take up more of my time again. Being in the senior year of the college mean I have a senior project along with many presentation on my project. Plus I am helping a professor design a new lab for next year's short winter term. So for the past week and a half I have been spend all day in the lab.
But do not fret (more for me then you), I am working on it slowly. I even trying my hand at drawing to try and work out of this funk.
Thanks for your patience.

So here is the situation. Today was warmest December day in recorded history of my home town, 60 degrees Fahrenheit. My parents asked me help get up some leaves from the backyard. There were some boards where I was working, now these boards had been there for years and had nothing bad happen before. I was cleaning leaves when I board stuck to my shoe. I got the board off, and then went to take a step low and behold there was still a rusty nail in my shoe and it went in my foot.
I quick trip to the ER, a tetanus booster shot and a bottle of antibiotics. I will be alright, but hey more time it sit around watch ponies.

Why Borderlands Worked.The original Borderlands is one of my favourite video games, so much so that it inspired me to return to writing futuristic science fiction science fiction, something which I hadn’t done since the 90s. It was a real breath of fresh air after the endless waves of grim, brown, cover-based-shooters and Call of Duty wannabes.Why Borderlands Worked.1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Having played through both Borderlands 2 and The Pre-Sequel, I’m not entirely sure that either Gearbox or 2K really knew themselves why Borderlands worked, because both additional entries into the canon failed to grab me in the same way.
Here are the reasons why I thought Borderlands was great, and why it’s sequels weren’t.
1: The opening.
There are very few games that set the scene as perfectly as this. In just under 2 minutes, you know everything you need to: Going by that weird dog-thing, Pandora is an alien planet. The crusty looking billboard suggests it’s a frontier world which p
