HADRON COLLIDER: New Color Discovered
A funny thing happened at the Large Hadron Collider near Geneva, Switzerland.
The world’s most powerful particle accelerator was engineered to prove or disprove the existence of the Higgs boson – the so-called “God particle” that could unlock the secrets of several major conundrums of modern physics. But along the way, whilst smashing atoms together in their collider, the scientists have come up with somethin

A friend just reminded me that we should be keeping CHRIST in CHRISTmas!
I completely agree! It drives me crazy when people forget to honor their god on the occasion named for him. I mean, look at the word! His name's right there at the beginning!
So this year, I'm very serious about keeping Christmas for Christ!
But I don't want to forget about all of those other gods!
I'm also keeping January for Janus, the Roman god of doors and gates.
And February for Februus, the Roman god of purification.
And March for Mars, the Roman god of war.
And April for Aphrodite, the Greek god of love and beauty.
And May for Maia, the Italic goddess of spring and flowers.
And June for Juno, Roman goddess of marriage, and protector of the state.
And July for Julius Caesar, believed to be the descendant of a goddess.
And August for Augustus Caesar, upon his death was officially declared a god by the senate, to be worshiped by all Romans.
I'm keeping Sunday for the su

In The Shadow of Dragons
"Is the time of daring deeds forgotten, and spent the fire of men? The bravery sheathed, the proud hearts withered? In the scorched trails of our foes’ fury, even wizards’ spells knelt and warriors’ will bent; yet Dawn’s struggle beneath the burning clouds, within the shadow of dragons, has won her the eastern sky. Shall battle drums thunder once more, and mithril–clad soldiers brave again the terrors of the skies?"

Disney at Hogwarts: A Crossover of MadnessMy next project! (I never do things in small steps, do I?)Disney at Hogwarts: A Crossover of Madness5 years ago in Personal More Like This
This is all for fun. Can you imagine if all Disney characters went to one high school?! There'd be so much heroics and derring-do, no work would ever get done! Can you imagine if they all went to one of the most famous schools in literature!?!? CAN YOU!?!??!
I thought it would be amazing to draw each of the characters in the house that we mostly agreed that they would fit in. Something I had had a vague idea about already; this just gave me purpose! Now that I have my tablet, I'm ready to get going! I've already sketched& scanned the characters out, just need to do lines and color. It takes me the good part of a day to finish one character, but I'll try to not keep everyone waiting too long.
I knew I had to limit myself with the number of characters, but I also wanted to get a good grouping from each house. I'm only doing human characters (wait for it...) that are younger than thirty (we're fudging their ages a bit

Why do we like what we like?A user posted a simple, perhaps provocant question in the comments for the Emma picture: "Why do people dream of causing pain to others."Why do we like what we like?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Obviously she (the questioner) is not a member of the BDSM community. So how to reply to that? Well, I already did, but that's not the matter here. Once in a while we are reminded of the fact, that our likings, namely bondage and things related to it, are outside the norm and at times easily confused with violence and abuse. As long as we play safe, sane and consensual, I think there is nothing we should have a bad conscience about. Also we didn't choose our sexual tendencies. No one does. There was no particular moment in our lifes when we said: "Hey guess what, I am into bondage now." Human behaviour is a mix of innate encoding in our genes and passive programming via experience and perceptions. Choosing your sexual preferences is not an option.
The discussion indirectly brought up further questions an "outsider" might ask:

The Steampunk Menagerie
The magic of thousands of years of natural selection and other evolutionary factors has created in all living creatures pretty much the optimal version of each for where each fits in the world. But never tell a human being, especially a steampunk, that there’s no need to fix what isn’t broken.
Here’s a collection of interesting imaginings of mechanical steampunk replacements for the somewhat mundane denizens of the actual natural world. For some people, especially some artists, until there’s been an upgrade or enhancement to anything, there just isn’t any “there” there.

My dream of Tom and Thor 2So… I'm having a really difficult time right now. There is so much stuff flying around on the internet in theories for the new Thor movie, it is bothering me. This is how screwed up my sleeping patterns are right now…My dream of Tom and Thor 21 year ago in Personal More Like This
I had a dream that I was an extra in the Thor 2 movie. I was able to be one of the featured extras which actually got to interact with Loki (Tom) and Thor (Chris). It felt so odd and it was so realistic because I remember Loki running through a hallway (which later turns out to be the dungeons) while Asgard was being attacked. Thor was running ahead of him and I was running behind them both. Walls were crumbling and I had fallen in the scene. The director seemed to like the chaos and wanted to continue the scene, but Tom being the gentlemen he was, turned and our eyes met. I did not hurt myself for real but he stayed in character acting as though I had. It was a very powerful performance.
It was strange after that because it was a wrap for the day after that scene. I had

Jessica (BelleSura) and Mika (FuriePhoenix) alerted me to something that is definitely interesting: Princess merchandise and pictures showing alternate hairstyles for Ariel, Aurora, Jasmine, Belle and Cinderella, with slight dress alterations to match. The reaction from fans, from what I can tell, has so far been mixed, with some seeing them as fresh while others feel like it's catering too much to younger fans. I'll do my best to run down the hairstyle changes for you guys...
Cinderella - Changing to a short ponytail bun
Ariel - Adding volume
Aurora - Added waves and bangs
Belle - Removing the yellow hair tie and adding
Jasmine - Slightly altering bangs and making a few strands stick out (arguably most minor change)
Here are a couple of images we've found so far:

I am homeless now...I really don't know how to label the title, but I can assure you that I am out of DA for a very long time. And for a good reason that will haunt our family for a long time.I am homeless now...1 month ago in Personal More Like This
Two days ago, on March 8, my house started to catch smoke, then fire, and it has gone to the point in which my house is severely damaged by fire, and the family is now labeled as homeless. The internet connection will be shaky, reconstruction of life and memory will be tough, and because of certain times, I have to restart the comic. (This fire has left me to change my perspective.)
I got some decent info on what happened (I wrote a synopsis), and took video of my house being burned. Any questions are allowed, since for the time I type this, I am currently depending on motel wi-fi.
(I will erase my comics soon. This is sad, that some fire had to ruin everything I have worked for.)
