manipulation from one of the Reza Abedini .
u can buy his book "New Visual Culture of Modern Iran" here:


review his book here: [link]

REZA ABEDINI’S PRESENTATION about contemporary Persian typography at the AGI conference in Helsinki in 2003, made clear to those in attendance that the subject merited a book. Iran underwent many changes in the wake of the 1979 Revolution. The sources of creative influence in Iran expanded as a result of the uprising, and the passing of time has incorporated those changes into the country’s cultural fabric in ways that may surprise most Westerners. New Visual Culture of Modern Iran colorfully showcases some of the most innovative and impressive work from illustrators, graphic designers and photographers living and working in Iran today. As Abedini writes in his introduction: “This book . . . will give you an insight into the real Iran, other than what the BBC or CNN news would give you!”

Well After a lot of hours of work, I finally finished Devious Canadians. I spent a lot of my time on this project and I am glad to be finished. This is my tribute to my fellow Canadians, they read from left to right... Blame Canada!

It basically is a game table with a projector on the inside that bounces an image off a mirror and onto a frosted Plexi-Glass table surface which acts essentially like a 3ft x 3ft. computer monitor. The projector gets the image from my laptop which uses a software called D20Pro. D20Pro is a Virtual TableTop that is generally used by people who want to play a vareity of Paper-and-Pencil RPG's via the internet. Nice little piece of software. ( I personally use D20Pro just for projecting Battlemaps onto the game table.

I also use a software called Blue Soleil which allows my laptop to recognize a Wii-Mote that acts like a signal reciever for an infra-Red pen. the infra-red pen acts like a mouse after I use Smartboard. Smartboard is a software that allows the game tables monitor surface to be mapped out in a manipulatable area where the infra-red pen can be used.

It sounds difficult but its really quite easy. (This coming from a guy who is somewhat computer literate.)

You can get most of these softwares for free but I suggest paying for them so you get all the needed updates and the softwares are wayyyy easier to use in thier non-demo form.

Let's do a little reading first, shall we?





With all that aside, I will mention that today is the anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima.

You'll hear alot of wapanese and people whining and bitching about how horrible it was and how so many were killed. But it's not anywhere near as horrible as to what happened in Nanking and not nearly as many died.

The Japanese have done unforgivably cruel things and have taken enjoyment from them, and I for one do not care how long ago it happened. They still refuse to apologize and refuse to admit that it happened the way it did... Some deny it even happened at -all-. (Despite, you know, proof. Dumb Japs.)

But this atrocity is horribly overlooked. Everyone focuses more on Germany crimes. But Germany fesses up to it. German soldiers didn't all like what they had to do. Infact the Nazis who were IN Nanking were HORRIFIED. There's an account of only two Jap soldiers who admit what happened.

So few care about the fact fetuses were torn from their mother and raped infront of them. That they raped these womens with spears and other things. That they forced family members to rape each other and make other family members watch. That they would cut the testicles off men and make them eat them. And why? Because the japs give us all the nice shiny electronics we have.

So yes many Japs died on this day so many years ago.. and I say it isn't enough. Not until every single last one of them is dead. They're not people, not humans. They're souless monsters who shouldn't be allowed to walk this planet. Japan got a part of what they deserved, but no where near enough.

I probably should block comments. Infact I shouldn't have posted half the things I said, and this will probably get reported (even though the picture itself isnt offense) and probably get banned.

But I don't care if I'm flamed or banned. I really don't give a shit if this is taken down. I'll post it back up again, with these exact words until they -do- ban me.

Why? Because I really don't give a fuck anymore. Not about anything. And yes, if you're wondering. I have gone off the deep fucking end. And some of you may say I'm a horrible person for saying all those things... But I haven't hurt anybody, I just speak the truth. But all those fucking Japs hurt people, didn't they?

And here's a little known fact. I know some of you have been going "waaah waaah you're not acting like youreself you used to love japan." And saying things like "Oh we tried to tell you before"

But before I loved Japan, guess what. I hated the fucking Japs. I don't remember why but I remember I hated them. I just came to my senses. And as for "Oh we tried to tell you" You wanted me to find out and lose what little faith in humanity I had left? To ruin my good time? What good fucking friends you were. I hope you all die and burn in hell.

:bulletgreen: shortens and clarifies DA tab titles to enhance tabbed browsing
:bulletgreen: deviantname auto-completion in address bar with CTRL-ALT-ENTER

a few people had funny issues downloading this from DA, so here are some clear pointers. when you click "download deviation", you should be asked if you want to save the file "DeviantLink_Browser_Extension_by_ayembee.xpi" or "". if this doesn't happen, you can also right click on the download link and choose to "Save Target As". save the file as "deviantlink.xpi". if you got ".zip", rename to ".xpi", open the file in your browser (File / Open File), and it will then install itself - restart and you're done! (also, if all else fails, dragging and dropping the downloaded extension file onto the browser application seems to be very reliable)

feedback & feature requests always appreciated!

you might also like to take a look at my other firefox extensions:
[link] DeviantEmoteBar v1.26
[link] DeviantCopyPaste v2.90

~ayembee :painter:

:earth: PLANNED FOR v3.0+
:bulletgreen: DeviantLink toolbar customisation!
:bulletgreen: feature freeze for translation! no major features currently planned beyond v3.0

:earth: MAYBE
:bulletgreen: chat manager so you can have an integrated list of dAmn chatroom favourites
:bulletgreen: if DA's RSS feeds ever get sorted out i might do some work involving those
:bulletpurple: note:: all translators get a credit next to their flag in the translation tab! :D
:bulletblue: [translation keeps slipping as i have been adding new features... sorry!!]

In regard to recent turn of events I show my supprt for jark, who is fighting for the community along with matteo, against $spyed's corporate ideals.
Some deviants have been acting physical and using verbal threats towards some staff members of dA. So I thought its about time I did this.

Point 1 is a bit extreme, it depends on your way of supporting I suppose, though I wont encourage anyone to do it (even though I have opted to do it myself).

This is for $jark. Keep up the good fight for daddy deviant, the Yellow Alien (aka Scott Jarkoff) :w00t:

Remember that what we're fighting for here is for the community against corporate ideals, and not each other. Understand the issue here and get to know about it before you protest or give support. If you wish to know more about the uproar here at dA visit this [link] or visit `bookdiva's, jark's, `onestar's, matteo's, $liquisoft's, `justthorne's or $spyed's journal(s).
