What Makes a True Christian (Just some thoughts)Just something I've had on my mind lately. There are so many people who call themselves Christians.What Makes a True Christian (Just some thoughts)2 months ago in Personal More Like This
The majority of people who call themselves Christians say that they love Jesus and believe that He exists. Which, yes, this is very important.
But that's all they do. They continue with their old, sinful ways. I hate to be the one to say this, but they think they're on their way to heaven. Please, do not let yourself be deceived. I'm not here to bash any lukewarm Christians. I myself was lukewarm at some point -- I believe that we all are until we fully understand that sacrifice that Christ made for us.
Going to church DOES NOT mean you're saved.
Reading the Bible DOES NOT mean you're saved.
Believing that God exists DOES NOT mean you're saved.
Saying that you love God DOES NOT mean you're saved.
Matthew 7:21 says, "Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will

To All Aspiring Artists Out There........http://vimeo.com/85040589To All Aspiring Artists Out There........1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So often, I get people asking for my secrets, praying to some god to give them what I have, asking me for my Photoshop brushes, joking that I must have sold my soul to Satan, that I must be cheating somehow, asking what programs I use in hopes that there is some magic "art button."
I'm sorry but...... No.
There are no secrets. No god and no devil had anything to do with it. There are no magic Photoshop brushes. There is no magic art button. There are no magic programs that will do the work for you. You can get Poser- some of the images that come out of it are lovely and if that makes you happy, fine. But if you want to do more than play with 3D paper dolls, to make your own art, to realize the wildest imaginings of your dreams exactly how you see them....
THERE. ARE. NO. SHORTCUTS.
Do you know how I got here?
Lots of it. Maybe I have some inborn talent? I don't know. But really, it's mostly WORK. You want to get good at something? Want it more tha

When it comes to photojournalism we often think about the importance of "speaking out". It's what we do and what we believe wholeheartedly in, often at great risk. Which is why it can be easy to forget that the first step in photojournalism is actually shutting up and listening.
Be Glad"Be Glad Your Nose is on Your Face" by Jack PrelutskyBe Glad1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Be glad your nose is on your face,
not pasted on some other place,
for if it were where it is not,
you might dislike your nose a lot.
Imagine if your precious nose
were sandwiched in between your toes,
that clearly would not be a treat,
for you'd be forced to smell your feet.
Your nose would be a source of dread
were it attached atop your head,
it soon would drive you to despair,
forever tickled by your hair.

Positive Traits of Aspergers SyndromeMany of those with Asperger's syndrome have a number of positive characteristics, including integrity, intelligence, endurance, and freedom from prejudice.Positive Traits of Aspergers Syndrome3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Often referred to as "autism lite" or a "shadow syndrome" of autism, Asperger's syndrome is relatively common, with up to 1 in 250 people in North America meeting the diagnostic criteria (Brasic, 27 April 2011).
Those with Asperger's, or "Aspies" (a term coined by Liane Holliday Willey in Pretending to Be Normal) are high-functioning in the sense that they are better able to maintain social relationships than those with autism. Unlike those with autism, Aspies often score highly on measures of verbal intelligence.
When contemplating disorders such as Asperger's syndrome, there is a tendency to focus on negative aspects, such as difficulty in reading social cues. But many of those with Asperger's syndrome have positive traits as well, which has led some people to question whether it should be viewed as a difference rather than a diso
10 things I've learned thus far (making comics!)Hey guys!10 things I've learned thus far (making comics!)6 months ago in Personal More Like This
I updated my journal yesterday: CLICK!
This entry focuses on a few lessons I've learned so far in my artistic journey. I will also share them here; perhaps you'll find them helpful/relateable.
(Note: keep in mind that everyone's artistic journey is different! What I'm listing below is SOLELY a reflection of my own perspective.)
1. You're going to write your script again. and again and again. and again and again and again....Seriously though, a script is never really done until the pages are. There's always something more to change or tweak, which is okay.
2. Making a comic is ~90% writing/planning and ~10% drawing. This means that a good amount of energy should be put into solidifying the script.
3. Work on your comic every day, at least an hour a day! Its so easy to become rusty or inconsistent!
4. It's always a good idea to find new, more efficie

So that's a little chaotic lol I don't have my visa for China yet or anything
It looks like in the current state of things, I'll be flying into Hong Kong Monday night and hanging out for a couple days there while my visa is processed. I'll be playing in a club in Chengdu for the next 3 months, and then I'll move to Shenzhen, where I'll be playing at a 5-star hotel for the following 4 months. So...lots of stuff happening! lol
I'll do my best to keep you guys posted with all that happens (and take some pics too, eh??). This is definitely going to be an exciting time, and hopefully this will put me out on the international stage! So it might get me traveling to other places too; it'd be awesome to meet up with more of you deviants as I go!

So…I work late. I mean I work really late – most nights I don't get home until 3 or 4am at the very earliest. So it came as a bit of a shock that on this particular Wednesday night, we as a band were informed that we would be meeting at 9am that following morning to go get our residency papers completed and filed. That time doesn't even EXIST for us lol I catch myself saying "goodmorning" at 5pm with annoyingly predictable frequency haha. But apparently this was the only time it was going to actually work to go do this, and since our coordinator (who works our same hours) was going to have to go with us, it looks like we were all going to h

3. Favorite my giveaway journal.
4. no bot/spam accounts.
5. not a rule but a word of advice: guilt tripping me will only hurt your chances.

The winner will receive one huion h610 prographics drawing pen tablet, a fe
