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 Century3 years ago in Personal More Like This
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

"Pleasse tell me?" Tino slithered up to him.
"Sstay out of my business," he glared and slithered off. Yes they were nagas, and Berwald had a secret. Usually he would tell every thing to his best friend, Tino, but when it came to her, he would take no chances. He quickly made his way through the forest and to its edge, stopping behind the tree line and looking out at a lone willow tree in a field of flowers. He saw her out line, his heart skipped a beat and slithered from behind the trees going to her.
"What iss he doing? He'ss vulnerable out there!" Tino hissed softly, watching his friend go out into the opening.
"Shhh!" Mathis hissed at Tino, "there'ss a human out there!" Mathis climbed a tree to get a better view of what was happening.

death vigil out in julydeath vigil out in july6 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

THANKSGIVING JOURNALNo features today. For once in my life here on DA, this time i want to show all my true love to all people who are supporting me here. Only a few are doing it since i joined DA, some of them never wrote a comment, but always faved every single new work. The rest always do it, so is cool, because im always curious to know what people feel watching it, from the images to the concepts.THANKSGIVING JOURNAL10 months ago in Personal More Like This

Today is a great day for me, because finally, after a hard working year, i made real a dream.

How there will be winners is I will pick the top 3 that I love the most and they will get the prizes, but everyone who enters gets a point prize at the end! All pictures entered in this contest will be added to the AMV.
I don't want to reveal the song that the AMV is going to be for at the moment due to people copying ;n; cc knows it hehe All I'm going to say

Hello there, girls and boys and Goblins and RBCs and assorted Dear Readers.
I'm really very sorry GND updates have slowed to a trickle, nay, a Chinese water-drip trick, just as we hit what is pretty much the epic-est storyline I have up my sleeve for the moment. There are some incompressible times issues in coordinating with my various wonderfully skilled but also busy and much imposed-upon colour sorceresses, and these are pages that can't quite be dashed off quickly, what with the Costume Porn and getting certain Significant Looks just right... Besides that personally, I have had little time to spare on them (or certain long-ago planned commissions, *cough*) this semester. I've been working on volume 2 of ''Alyssa'' for the French BD market, and am kinda nose-to-the-grindstone, blinkered by the deadline on that. Not that it's not pret

ENGIE: PROTOCOL 1-1-3Zee Captain's note of summons had sealed my fate.ENGIE: PROTOCOL 1-1-33 years ago in Personal More Like This
I felt a cold pull at my stomach. Something else was coming, re-awakened by the presence of Captain.
Something worse than the shuffling noises of the red beasts outside. The sound of falling cannonball.
Whatever that fleshy monstrosity was, it cared not for me, but it's presence here led ANNIE straight to me.
...And it came to pass on the morrow, that the goddess in the machine came upon me and she wanted vengeance.
She was online, the thermonuclear bombardment of the core databank cube had failed to shut her down.
She was still alive, after all these years.
The explosive crash-landing of the hunter machine through the old roof drew THEIR attention.
I was now between two wild beasts, out for my blood.
What was Protocol 1-1-3?
Memories of Directorate weapon codes lingered in my mind, poisoning my thought pattern.
Could it be?
...So this was to be my death.
ANNIE had let me know that she
So I was just stopped by a cop....I wasn't driving. I was walking. He drives up, rolls down the window, and says something I don't quite hear. I say hello. He repeats it. "How old are you?"So I was just stopped by a cop....2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I'm in shock. I ask, "How OLD am I?"
"I'm 29!!" (I'm sure I sounded incredulous.)
I say, "I have my license if you want to see it." He wants to see it so I give it to him. He looks and hands it back.
He thought I was a highschool truant.
The moral of the story is that I should stop wearing clothing a teenager might wear because as I continue to get older and not to age it will become more and more unbelievable that I am as old as I say I am and I don't look forward to being driven in the back of a police car to the nearest high school, in tears BECAUSE I HAVE ALREADY DONE MY TIME!
Stop SOPA Blackout JournalDo you care about your rights?Stop SOPA Blackout Journal3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I care about your rights. SOPA is an infringement upon our rights. Do you want the government controlling which websites it approves the use of? Our freedoms for thought and free speech need to be protected for free internet. In protest, blackout your pages, go silent, spread the word. Petition sites you care about to do the same.
Who does SOPA effect?
Everyone who uses the internet. Facebook, Twitter, social networking sites which cannot control the content posted by it's users and will be held responsible for it. This is forced censorship. This will not stop piracy. This will effect law abiding citizens. It does not protect our rights, it treads on it, spits on it, and throws our rights out the window at 100mph.

I've gotten so many wonderful, beautiful, comments! I read them all, even if I do not respond to each one. I am so moved that so many people found my little story so interesting! Really, it makes me all glowy to know that I was able to hit the artistic nail on the head. Nothing is more satisfying to an artist than knowing that their work "got to people".
Many of you understood exactly what I was aiming for, and that makes me happiest of all!
Knowing that I was able to communicate my artistic vision (with a fan comic!) feels so triumphant. As I posted each page, I would read the comments and keep them in mind when painting the next page... I would put extra effort into emphasizing certain points and ideas of mine to help better communicate them. Really, all of your comments truly helped me to hone my idea and inspire me to keep up with the work. So th

If "teacup" Himalayans were a real thing, he'd be one. But they're not so he's just my tiny boy.
EDIT: I'm not really in the market for anything other than cute animal graphics, so I'm looking for artists who specialize in those. I understand your friend might draw amazing people portraits or whatever, but I'm not looking for those right now. So please if you or a friend specialize in cute animal graphics, you're the links I'd like Everything else, not right now please.
