The Heartbeat of Modern Music
From the days of Beethoven and Franz Liszt, to the Vaudeville stages of America in the1880s to the 1930s, to the electronic keyboards anchoring the rhythms of today’s rock groups and pop singers, the piano has been the heart of the music animating our popular entertainments. Not as sexy as the guitar, nor as brash as the drums, the pianos have been the steadying source of rhythm and timing holding together songs and other compositions for the past several centuries. And, oh yes, while not being so overtly sexy, pianos can be very romantic. Enjoy this gallery of the musician’s most basic dream machi
What is Anthro?Too many people has the wrong idea about what does "Anthro" mean... even before deviantART created a whole gallery devoted to this special kind of art, there are still too many doubts about this category, and maybe that explains many of the mistakes when uploading pictures, images or drawings to our section.What is Anthro?8 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Even when I was still not the Anthro Gallery Director , I tried to explain this concept in a journal entry but couldn't manage to make it clear, and now I think it's the perfect chance for a new attempt. ^___^ To start with, let's take a look at two definitions that may help us.
Anthro: a synonym for anthropomorphism in the furry fandom.
Anthropomorphism is the attribution of uniquely human characteristics and qualities to nonhuman beings, inanimate objects, or natural or supernatural phenomena (...)

"I DRAW SPANKING PICTURES!"
wheww, glad I got that off my chest. But yeah, just felt I needed to make that announcement.
But seriously I want to let my current watchers new and old understand this. If you do not like those sorts of pictures then you might as well click the "unwatch" button, because that is what I do here, no, its not every picture, but it is a theme of much of my work.
here are a few frequently asked questions I get about my spanking work just to clear things up.
Q. OMG! BDSM? 50 shades of grey, whips and chains?
A. No, not really, no. For those who actually pay attention to my artwork, the spanking situations I draw usually fall under four different categories. "Parental Spanking" "Discipline Spanking" "Silly Spanking" and something I like to call "Mean Spankings" As you will note in I hardly if ever draw "Sexy Spankings" honestly, contrary to popular belief, I don't really like kinky span

Hopefully, they won't suddenly shut down the D.Z.T.R. Department and there will be more tours for me to "guide".
Today... was different.
A buzzing, hovering Hunter-Drone met me in the Airlock.
Must be a new thing.
Ah I see,
As I'm forever unable to access ANNET, someone up top must have programmed this contraption to follow me around, shouting things at me.
Thank you, whoever you are.
I never felt more ridiculous.

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.

Skyrim ReviewTwo or three years late but whatever! We can't all buy stuff day one, right? Anyway, if you've been following my journal entries as I've started playing Skyrim you can probably tell how this review is gonna go down.Skyrim Review1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I hate complicated things, and Skyrim is a game with a deep and rich history that can be very difficult for newbies like me to get into. Right off the bat the game throws all sorts of names, races, powers, legends, lore, etc at you. Too much of that can be a big turn off (heck I know people who still haven't read Lord of the Rings because there were too many names), but luckily Skyrim does a good job of easing players into the game.
There is a main campaign you have to follow to technically "beat" the game, but you don't have to follow it. The moment I had a chance to break free of the story I did so and I went exploring. That allowed me, a new person unfamiliar with any of the lore of the Elder Scrolls series, to experience the world at my own pace. The world is so e

AMBER SNIPPY'S FATE?I've had that dream again.AMBER SNIPPY'S FATE?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
That strange place, so distant, yet so close to my heart. Buildings as tall as mountains.
Dead structures, watching with dead eyes. Empty, vast and endless honeycombs of stone and steel. Air filled with gray ashes, always fluttering from the cloudy sky.
The black vortex opens up in the sky, descending down to the city. The vortex spiral rips the city apart, bending the air itself, feasting on light, feasting on time.
There is a lonely figure standing in the street.
No matter how hard I try to make out his or her expression, I cannot. Is there no face there at all? Or perhaps there is a million human faces there, intertwined and flickering in unison, as bright as the light of ten thousand suns?
The being stares into the abyss of the vortex.
It takes another step towards it, into the horizon of nothingness, into a place where nothing can exist.

I've been away for the past week and a half on a trip. I've tried to stay mostly in contact but since I've been away from my computer I haven't been able to update all my various outlets as much as I would like to. I even drew the two latest brentalfloss comics while on my mini "vacation" too, so no rest for the weary! It's probably gonna take me another day or two to get completely caught up, but I have a LOT of new stuff I wanna tackle. I'm working on not rushing everything out, but sometimes when you got a lot you want to do it's hard to focus on just one project. Anyway, I'm back now and I hope to be back to posting more regularly soon!

SYAC updatingSYACSYAC updating3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I've been working on retooling SYAC recently. I've also been experimenting with Illustrator too. I'm still learning and there's a lot to work on, but I think I'm getting close to reaching the point when I can relaunch SYAC again.
There are three basic rules I'm gonna try to follow with this new series.
1. Keep it cartoony.
2. No strawman arguments.
3. Focus on the characters and their interaction with each other.
Since the newer style requires more work, there will be fewer comics a week, so I don't know if I'll have a regular schedule yet. Also, please be patient with the first batch of comics. With all this experimentation and style reworking, it's likely the first batch will be a little "off" until I can work out a rhythm.
The new SYAC will focus on a group of people as they enter an Art College. Some characters will be returning (like Persistent Pam and Curmudgeonly Carl) but others (like myself) will be ditched entirely. The comic will be less about giving art advice a

My Minecraft Testificate InfestationIn Minecraft there are these squidward like villagers called Testificates. In a recent update they were given new abilities such as having babies to repopulating a town based on the number of houses there are. Since the requirement for a "house" is simply a room with a roof and a door, I decided to spend my time building a massive city for the Testificates to populate, using a generated village as a starting point.My Minecraft Testificate Infestation3 years ago in Personal More Like This
After building a number of houses, I began noticing the little children running wild and there becoming quite a LOT of villagers. I undertook a huge task of building a BIG open area underground with a couple doors and lights. Because the area was so big, the Testificates began to... um... OVER populate.
These little buggers reproduced the village so fast that I couldn't keep up and soon they were overflowing out of buildings. Mob attacks couldn't keep up with the rate they were repopulating, and the iron golems that kept spawning (for every 15 villager a new one spawns) made

This is the most recent "snapshot" of the game and it's a BIG deal. You can now write in BOOKS! It's super easy to do too. Just take a book, an ink sac, and a feather and put them all in the crafting table. It creates a "book and quill." While holding the book and quill, if you right click it opens up a txt screen you can fill in with whatever you want!
You can write up to 50 pages of text and edit at your will. When you've got the book where you want it to be you can finish it by clicking the SIGN button. When you do this you'll be asked to give it a title. After that, it's done! No one can edit your book and you can re-read it any time you want!

Internet TimeWe had the Oscars recently and as usual it wasn't without problems. One of the controversies was Chris Rock's biting commentary about doing voice work for animated films, which was unfortunately insulting to the many hard working (yet perpetually unknown) talents who produce about 90% of all voice work in the animated medium. Chris Rock's joke was funny for his circle of friends and the aging academy, but to younger artists and professionals it was very disrespectful. Voice actress Tara Strong took particular issue with Rock's comment and as we speak his twitter account is no doubt being flooded with angry hate messages and likely racism too... which is very unfortunate. http://www.examiner.com/african-american-entertainment-in-national/tara-strong-attacks-chris-rock-over-oscar-2012-animation-comments-quotesInternet Time3 years ago in Personal More Like This
