Had to stop cause I was getting dizzy.
VOLBEAT NEWS!So I noticed how dead this group has been. As a die-hard Volbeat fan who runs a successful blog dedicated to them and what have you... I decided to make a blog entry here on this group. The last/only blog entry I see was back in 2011 by lp-freak-Anna announcing the departure of Thomas Bredahl from the band.VOLBEAT NEWS!3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Now, less than two years later, the news of Volbeat's uprising has stunned many fans. Volbeat has a new guitarist, former Anthrax guitarist, Rob Caggiano. He's their full-time guitarist after producing the new upcoming album, "Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies," which is set to drop worldwide April 9th, 2013.

We’re happy to announce that the upcoming studio album "Outlaw Gentlemen & Shady Ladies" will be released on in April 8, 2013 (GSA on April 5 and USA on April 9).

No for real, for those of you that don't know I got four wisdom teeth removed on Wednesday. I guess I asked the doctor some weird questions while I was still looped up "Why do I have an extra finger?" :iconrainbowdashshrugplz: Anywhore, my face is still a bit sore but I'm feeling pretty good and will be back into the swing of things by Monday.I Suppose This Journal Entry is Rather Devious3 years ago in Personal More Like This
In others news my Adonit Jot Pro arrived in the mail! Tried it out, piece of shit! Sure, it worked great on my iPod, but as for my Macbook trackpad, total waste of money. Unless I can find a way to get it to work well with trackpads, I'm probably going to either sell it or return it for a Pogo Sketch Plus. Either way, I wish I had a better scanner so I could stick to traditional work. Honestly, I love drawing on REAL paper with REAL pencil, but my scanner is a piece off of Jimmy Dean's lef

VOLBEAT PARTS WAYS WITH GUITARIST THOMAS BREDAHL"Volbeat has decided to part ways with Thomas Bredahl. Being in a band is in many ways similar to a marriage with ups and downs. At times you can work it out and sometimes you need to go separate ways... We want to thank him for the work he has put in for Volbeat and we wish him all the best in the future. Volbeat will play all shows as announced, either as a trio or with a replacement guitarist. Right now we’ll take a well deserved break and we will be back on the road in January, ready to rock the Gigantour and Wacken.VOLBEAT PARTS WAYS WITH GUITARIST THOMAS BREDAHL4 years ago in Personal More Like This

I'm very sad and shocked to hear that. Three weeks ago I saw the guys live in concert and now the band in this formation doesn't exist anymore. It's always hard when one of your favorite bands decides to part ways with a band member but when it's the best for the band then it's the best.
I want to thank Thomas for being a part of Volbeat and shacking my hand at the Volbeat concert! Hopefully we will know very

Pugbun vs Tailcat contest - 20000points prize poolPugbun vs Tailcat contest - 20000points prize pool3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
The loathsome creature devoid of honor that goes by the name of Tailcat has crossed the line! This vile creature listens to lame music, doesn't do the dishes, and what's worst of all, doesn't put crayons back on their place. This and many other breaches of good manners escalated to the point at which I was forced to declare war! Stand by my side my brothers and sisters! For music! For crayons! For the dishes!
The peace between Pugbunistan and Tailcatia lasted for many years but it's over now! Pick a side and help your army defeat the enemy once and for all!
If your bravery and artistic input will be enough to harm our opponent you'll be handsomely rewarded for your deeds!
If you are caught collaborating with the enemy though, you'll be thrown into the poisonous hamster pit!
Your task is to take part in the war between Pugbunistan and Tailcatia. To do so you have to create a piece of artwork that dep
An official word on lotteriesThere has been a small number of lottery-type opportunities opening up as groups recently and also on user accounts. These games of chance have attracted attention within the community because they offer a gambling type venture where deviants may win additional prizes, or receive their points back with an additional increase, should they be the lucky deviant to be selected.An official word on lotteries5 years ago in Personal More Like This
Some deviants have expressed concerns over these groups, not knowing whether or not these lotteries are legitimate, or even allowed within our community. We are aware that there are some concerns over the legalities of such lotteries, and would obviously not wish for any deviants to put themselves in a potential situation which may result in legal intervention. Before starting any lottery activity, deviants should consider obtaining legal advice in their local territory. Criminal prosecutions can occur.
We've gave this a lot of thought in terms of the community’s interests, and considere
Infos about the abandoned locationsI know that a lot of you are curious to get more information about the abandoned places in my photos and I receive a lot of questions about them.Infos about the abandoned locations3 years ago in Personal More Like This
There is a reason that I don't give any though. I do love abandoned buildings, I see so much beauty in those places. Unfortunately, many people don't.
I do act very respectful inside those places, but there are too many idiots out there that don't behave like me.
I've seen so much vandalism, theft and other bad things happening to those buildings after they have become popular, that I will do all I can to protect those beauties.
Therefore, I don't give any infos about the location (not even the country) or history about them since every little piece of info makes it easier for people to find it.
I'll gladly help you with any info about all non-decay related shots, but there is no chance I tell anything about the decaying beauties. No exceptions.
Please respect that and don't post any info in the comments, they will be deleted without warning.

The Art of Capturing Souls:icontechgnotic:The Art of Capturing Souls4 years ago in Personal More Like This
The human face, usually that of one’s mother, is the first visual connection a new human being has with the world. That face is the world. Psychologists tell us that the greater percentage of what we communicate with each other in any conversation is transmitted and received through our reading of each other’s facial expressions during our chat – and more often than not, we trust the truth to be what we read in another’s face, this truth being as often as not contrary to the words being spoken.
Crazy Horse had no fear of leading his warriors against Custer’s guns at the Little Big Horn, but he wouldn’t let his picture be taken on his deathbed, lest his soul be captured in the photograph. For Crazy Horse it may indeed have been more than the mere chronicling of the death of a particular moment in time that was captured. Maybe it’s because of our unique evolutionary trajectory (w

I'm sorry guys.
I've always been trying to be kind and fair and I organized many kiribans already but I hate it when people don't play fair and that's why I really have to cancel this.

Starving ArtistThe Starving ArtistStarving Artist1 year ago in Personal More Like This
This topic is about rates and wages that an artist should start to consider when taking on a new job. This is my advice, so take this as advice.
So let’s begin. As an artist you should know right away that you are valuable. You can recreate people’s imagination and ideas into reality. You are the one who brings people together to be able to all see the vision for the final product. This is valuable. Keep this in mind when you take new jobs. Think about how many hours you plan on slaving over iteration after iteration. Because even though you may have a voice, if you agree to whatever the arrangement are, you must live up to their standards. So make sure you are paid well.
Imagine a client asks you to do 50 hours of work for only $500 dollars. That’s $10 an hour. That is not enough. You can go get a job that could pay you as much if not more, without being an artist. I’ve seen people’s salaries as low as 30k a year. This is not acc

New Year’s Eve
So what did you “actually get done” in the past year? How closer are you to a grand goal in life? An assessment is made and then the inevitable Step 2 of the yearly process is engaged, which is often a word for word repeat of last year’s Step 2:
The New Year’s Resolution
There seem to be two main strategies that emerge at this point of facing the New Year, a “brand new morning.” The lone wolf quietly acknowledges goals not yet reached, and is even more secretive in the “new plan.” “I’ll show them,” becomes the new privat

It is Christmas in a few days, or since its 3AM on Christmas Eve I suppose I could say it is tomorrow. I haven't been on since May, so forgive me for being so far behind.
I will post some pictures of different things I liked that have transpired over the past, uh, half a year.
I would also like to update that I think I might get back into drawing again. If I do, I'll be sure to attempt to post these musings on here For that is what this is for ja?
