In _____ We TrustIn response to a recent petition, the phrase "In God We Trust" will stay on US currency. The reasoning included these points:In _____ We Trust2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"While the President strongly supports every American's right to religious freedom and the separation of church and state, that does not mean there's no role for religion in the public square."
"A sense of proportion should also guide those who police the boundaries between church and state. Not every mention of God in public is a breach to the wall of separation - context matters.
"That's why President Obama supports the use of the words "under God' in our Pledge of Allegiance and "In God we Trust' on our currency and as our national motto. These phrases represent the important role religion plays in American public life, while we continue to recognize and protect the rights of secular Americans. As the President said in his inaugural address, "We

"It really sucks to have you car break down in the middle of nowhere, especially when the only house around is a haunted mansion. Most people have the common sense to avoid a house as creepy as this place, but this guy is willing to go in. Predictably, trouble awaits him inside..."

Regarding this weekus horribilusI've had a few people sending Notes or mails of concern. Thank you kindly for your care. I have friends and family in Paris who were pretty stressed out today - I don't live in the capital myself. The ''clear and present'' danger seems over, with the shooters killed by police this evening. It's been a long and antsy day with the double stand-offs and the 24-hours news channels and things seemingly shittier by the hour.Regarding this weekus horribilus3 months ago in Personal More Like This
As to the whole of the thing, I am still hurting. I hadn't met the Charlie cartoonists, but it feels like there was meant to be a ''yet'' at the end of that sentence, and now the field I work in has become a smaller, poorer place without those [in]famous names, and I will never share a glass of free wine with them at a random BD festival, caught between being star-struck and disapproving. A huge number of my fb contacts and RL friends are fellow comics artists and the wave of anguish and disbelief and blackened profile pictures as the names of the confirmed dead spread w

No the story is not dead. I have just spent the last month and half working on my thesis. Both the paper and the expirement that has gone into the paper, along with the various presentation I had to give with it. With my graduation coming up soon I hope to spend some more time on the story, over the summer.
P.S. Max did a great job. Thanks for all that tireless and thankless work you did to start and build up the PDF archive and gallery. :iconjlryan: Jlryanwill do you proud in mainting yo

Let me tell you when you start to thinking of Zecora dialog, the rhythms just seem to come at you all the time, they come and the go paying no heed to your needs.
That last part was said in a Zecora voice within my head. How about you?
Luna EclipseWow that Luna episode. Not quite the voice I imagine little to high pitched and not as soft as I imagined. Well at lest one of our theories was correct she does seem like a trickster, and she just trying to fit in but a lot has changed in 1000 and she just trying what she remembers to be the norm. But that leaves one question what has she been doing for over a year? Unless the episode are not in chronological order in the airing time line.Luna Eclipse3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So this episode could in pony universe time it could have taken place right after she came back so ponies could have been still scared of her. But in the past season there is really no proof to support my theory in full. But it would explain a lot of the trouble she had during the celebration one year after her return.
By no means does this take away from the episode. It will be in my top five favorites. Viva the new lunar republic.

I have been thinking of changing the name of my person OC (the one trotting at the bottom). Right now he is called Brass Arrow. The name came form a mix of a name generated by a MLP name generator at rum Monkey and the metal I think of when I say steampunk. The original generated name became the main focus of my fan fiction starring Steel Arrow.
If any of your read this what do you think keep it or change with something else? If enough interest is show I post up another journal (because you need a premium account to make a poll) with some of my options.
death vigil out in julydeath vigil out in july10 months ago in Personal More Like This
so, this july i am starting death vigil, published by image/top cow. it will be a monthly series limited to three 8-issue arcs, so there is a definitive ending. with this i have learned some of the things about publishing independent comics, and i am planning a video with some tips after i summarize my experiences. hopefully it will prove helpful for others to get their stuff published
but apparently rule 1 is promote preorders. preorders are crucial for independent books as they define the print runs, and are crucial to the sucess of the book.. so.. as my far more experienced friends told me to do....
death vigil is preorderable ...pretty much in any place or webstore that carries US comics.
you can find an extensive preview to issue 1 and much more here

what about ravine? ron marz assured me that he will be

Out With the old and in with a Rewrite.So yeah I was going through a little writing slump for the past two months or how ever long since I posted my last chapter. So I was trying my hoof art some drawing and digital art to try and get my writing mojo working again. I was reading over what I had written and thought is was pretty bad. So I throw out most of the first half of the chapter and I am currently rewriting it. I will be a little while until I am able to get the next chapter out.Out With the old and in with a Rewrite.3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Why Are You Atheists So Angry?I often see how religous people say that atheists dont have morals, hate their lives, arent happy, are always angry and disrespectful etc.. Ive even heard some say that Atheists die faster because they dont believe or have faith.Why Are You Atheists So Angry?3 years ago in Personal More Like This
And I finally found one woman who explains this very well. So I think this is a video many should see even if your not an atheist. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GUI_ML1qkQE&feature=share
I do get angry for some of the things she doesnt metion to, but she sums up most of it.
Not only do I agree with her, but im SHOCKED to hear half of the things that made her angry, because they are HORRIBLE and I dont see how anyone could ignore them.
Oh and just incase many of you thought I was religious, im not xD Ive got no problem with you being it, just dont try to shove it on me. 8D and guess what, Im a really happy and positive person even If I dont believe or have faith. I dont think I could be happier. Maybe If I had some delicous homemade pizza lD~

Please do not use my artwork and claim it as your own. Do not edit it in any way unless I have given permission.
And please do not pretend to be me on any site. Using my name and claiming to be me while leaving nasty comments to others is not okay. It reflects on me and my art in a negative light.
However I would like to say again that I am very appreciative of all my supporters, comments, favs, watches, etc. And I hope I can continue to inspire and share my art with everyone! Thank you!!

Into the Realm
“Evening songs of burning wood and mead and laughter, of blood and hunts and fellowship: our halls echo with memories old and new. A day through forest and field, chasing the smell of spring, a moment above the morning mist to steal a glimpse of seas twinkling on the horizon; an eternity before our gates, in wonderment at the carved quests of heroes, coming alive at a fingertip’s request. Witness a lifetime into the realm… it is quite the adventure.”
