Sometimes in youth we play crazy mind games. One gruesome game was trying to think of the worst way to die. Or even better, the "which would you choose" version of the same conceit. Another was what would be the worst torture to endure. If there is one international touchstone that best captures youthful fears and wonders in speculation of what lies beyond the veil of death and awaits as possible punishment for our sins, it must be - to the few who have actually read it to the millions who "know" it – "Dante's Inferno." Who does not shiver at the thought of being lost somewhere in the "Nine Rings of Hell?"

The Scottish Highlands
“Outlander” is a new cable series about a young woman who time travels from England at the end of WWII to 1743 Scotland, right before the Second Jacobite Uprising. The science fiction time travel and Scottish civil war themes are simply elaborate devices to justify the heroine engaging in a sizzling “bodice–ripper” romance. The location shoot in the lush eye–popping Scottish Highlands provides a beautiful backdrop for all the hot romance. Even if British reserve, Scottish resolve and cable sex aren’t your cup of tea, the amazing landscapes framing the tale are well worth your time.
“Ye werena the first lass I kissed,” he said softly. “But I swear you’ll be the last.”

The chaptered comic strip, has been collected into a 100-page graphic novel – and to the still-uninitiated:
It is not quite like anything you’ve probably ever seen before. The story follows “Zee Captain” and his sidekicks as they amble through a post-apocalyptic landscape. And while that hardly seems new and different, it’s the unusually superlative graphic quality of the comic cells and the Monty Pythonesque dialogues and leaps of logic that can become quite mesmerizing. Zee Captain, his face hidden by a gas mask that gives him a Darth Vaderish look, wears what looks like a Soviet Red Army uniform from WWII, and the strip does have nourish WWII feel. It’s as if the nuclear holocaust on Hiroshima and Nagasaki had never ended and spread to every major city on Earth. But

When recently asked how his political candidate would explain certain positions taken during the
nomination process with contrary positions to be taken during the general election, the campaign chief
replied that stated political positions were “like an Etch A Sketch,”—meaning they could simply be
flipped over, erased and begun over from scratch.

Comics Are ArtComic-Con Journey to the Heart of The New Summer VacationComics Are Art in DeviantART Announcements More Like This
Americans have a long summer vacation tradition of visiting the foreign capitals of the world and being sure to spend at least one day in each nation’s most iconic art museum. In Paris, we visit the Louvre. In Madrid, the Prado. In Rome, the Borghese. We feel far more comfortable in identifying the different peoples of our planet through examples of their greatest art works than we do about identifying ourselves as being represented by any one iconic “American” art museum or artist. Maybe the country is just too big for one musuem and so it has always fallen to our pop arts to carry the true visual narrative of what’s going on in the hearts and minds of the masses.

I know it’s been forever since I’ve written something, but a recent news story brought my piss to such a boil that I had to vent about it.
First, allow me to provide a hypothetical scenario: imagine a girl decided to attend school wearing next to nothing with a revealing top and even more revealing short skirt. (You know: the typical attire for high school girls!) Now imagine that this girl was accosted by a pack of horny, testosterone-driven jocks and gang raped.
The students are brought before the principal. However, rather than reprimanding the rapists and having their sorry asses expelled and arrested, the principal instead reprimands the rape victim for tempting the boys with her revealing outfit, and as a precautionary measure against future rape incidents, passes a strict dress code prohibiting girls from wearing such sensual clothing.

Good news and bad news. The bad news is that Americans have become increasingly polarized along political lines. Not since the Civil War has the county been this politically divided.
The good news is that more Americans, especially millennials, are refusing to identify as Team Edward or Team Jacob—excuse me, Team Red or Team Blue—and are instead identifying as political independents.
As the gap between the two parties ever increase, the illusion of choice becomes all the more clearer, and Americans are quickly becoming disillusioned by it. We can only hope that this trend helps foster a formidable third
This Is Feminism Done Right!If you regularly follow my blog, you can see that I often harp on feminists. It’s not that I have a problem with “feminism,” per say—or at least with the concept of equality for women. Far from it! I firmly believe that women should have the same opportunities as men (though that doesn’t necessarily guarantee them the exact same results).This Is Feminism Done Right! in Personal More Like This
The problem is that feminists try to go about achieving their goals the wrong way. They seem to think that the best way to lift up women is to tear down men. “All men are pigs!” “Women need men like a fish needs a bicycle!” “All men are rapists! Teach men not to rape!” “Check your privilege!”
The only thing this accomplishes is making all feminists look like man-haters. If feminists truly value equality, then they should empower women by lifting them up, not by tearing men down.

I decided to busy myself with rewriting Delaware's history. And I'm still in it's colonial period when it comes to reading. And my god, its colonial history IS Pennsylvania's colonial history. Everything blends with Pennsylvania's history one way or another that it's so creepy. It's making me wonder why they aren't the same state anymore.
But then that question is quickly answered by the fact that Delaware settlers followed the Church of England and other denominations of Christianity. They didn't clash too well with Quakers or the Quaker government of Pennsylvania. Sad part about it was, they relied on PA a lot.
Though while Delaware was getting attacked by pirates and shit, Pennsylvania didn't really send help. Why? Because Quakers didn't believe in fighting. If it was a way to eliminate the conflict, and solve problems peacefully, then they would step in. This pissed Delaware off to no en

Q: What was Delaware like in colonial times? : o
Depends on what colonial times you are talking about XD Okay I shall start with Colonial Delaware from the beginning. Which is around like the 1631; which was when the Dutch settled in what is now Lewes. Their settlement was called Zwaanendael, meaning "Swan Valley" . What Europeans that did come to Delaware around that time, they were the minority. For a large number of Native Americans still occupied the land. Thus in my headcanon, Edmund lived among the Lenape for a very long time.
He was an alright kid, very independent; and didn't like relying on others. But most of all, the Lenape taught him to have a big heart. So when the Dutch settlers needed help with food and stuff, they helped them out. No problem. Though somethin

I've been drawing ever since I was a wee child. I sucked but hey, I liked drawing. I first started off by tracing pokemon in my pokemon books. (Yes, as much as I'd hate to admit it, I used to trace.) This gave me a firm grasp on how to draw shapes and how to see basic shapes in characters. I believe this was during 2006 through 2008... In late 2008/early 2009 I discovered Twime777 on youtube and needless to say I was inspired by her work. Every day after school I would go onto youtube and check her channel for new videos. During this time I stopped tracing entirely and used her techniques to aid me in the drawing process. In mid 2010 I discovered Frankyding90 and her sonic speedpaints on youtube. I remember I drew Knuckles by following this video step by step.

Haven't heard the preview yet? Well...
And now for something totally unrelated.
I went on another anime watching spree today. ;p I watched Btooom! and the first episode of the new anime called Blood Lad. Btooom! reminded me of Mirai Nikki and the Hunger Games blended together. Blood Lad's art style just reminds me of Soul Eater

Then there's a trend on YouTube where deviants are posting video blogs about their deviantART experiences. I recently caught this one by DomieNeek that I was charmed by. She makes great points, too!
In November we published a Journal on dt's Blog, very discreetly announcing that we've launched a set of API's (Application Programming Interfaces) so that developers out there could make Apps for deviantART.

Due to halloween some pretty key folks are trick or treating with their kids and stuff this evening so I couldn't publish a really terrific resolution to the Journal issues we've been having until tomorrow. Family comes first folks!
I can say the following with confidence: Everything everyone wants, with the added benefits that come with the deviations platform will be released very soon.
In the meantime, enjoy the really crazy journals showing up in the footer.
Oh, btw, because of the new Journal portal we learned we were having a bit of a spam issue, with a few bots posting to the network mostly to spike their google pagerank. Which is silly because we've set the pages to be ignored by the google spiders... so what these spammers are doing is all for nothing. But we'll root them out within a couple of days as well and ultimately really clean deviantART up.

My favorite Sushi Chef and his wife, Mr. and Mrs. Nozawa are retiring as of yesterday. I was able to deliver this letter to them last night, along with a bottle of champagne. And I was honored to deliver a last toast, and incredibly beyond belief honored to eat the last piece of sushi served by the restaurant. A new restaurant for the sushi chain called "Sugar Fish" (a partnership between Nozawa, and his sun plus another partner) will replace the original Nozawa which has operated from Ventura Blvd in Studio City for the past 25 years. Sugar Fish at this location is scheduled to open in May.

Regarding SOPA and deviantART (update)Our view at deviantART regarding SOPA is that it's probably a bad idea. There should be better ways to deal with mass infringement on the Internet than this. This bill in our view can be seen as a threat to the open Internet itself and this is very hard to digest or support.Regarding SOPA and deviantART (update) in DeviantART Announcements More Like This

The Committed Canvas:icontechgnotic:The Committed Canvas in Personal More Like This
Tattooing has existed since the very beginnings of Neolithic human expression and has since those ancient beginnings continued to be a reliable flash indicator of personality type. There are those people who get tattoos and there those people who simply do not. Even though the social opprobrium for getting inked has greatly disappeared in recent years, and even though skin art has become almost boringly de rigueur amongst rock guitarists and other entertainers, there is still one element that separates the tattooed from the non-tattooed in terms of artistic appreciation: commitment.
Tattoos may be the first “interactive” art form. The art lover doesn’t just buy an artist’s artwork – he or she becomes one with artwork, he or she commits to becoming a living canvas for the artwork, he or she, by choosing the tattoo to be borne forever, shares authorship with the tattoo artist of the artwork.

Every time we open our eyes in the morning as each new day breaks, two worlds flow forth, each penetrating into the other, as the celestial portal gate separating them is once again raised. One’s inner world, of mind and being, pierces the outer world of light and raw data, seeking to hunt and gather mental sustenance. The outer world floods into our minds like a data tsunami, seeking to reconfigure the secret landscape of last night’s perfectly crafted dream state. Both worlds do battle to rearrange and make sense of the other. It is the yin and yang, by which we create and recreate the world – and the world invades and recreates each one of

Contours in Context
The argument for the nude in art:
Our visual perception of the human face and then the human body has set the basis since the beginning of
human history for our sense of what is beautiful and what initiates all our seminal ineffable sublime feelings
about the nature of love, life, desire, destiny, eternity, ad infinitum. The curvatures and symmetries of the
human body even lay the geometric basis for the artistic structures of all our art forms, not only for the visual
arts but also for literature and architecture. Given the primacy of the body as the beginning of all that we are
in life, and given the eye as the primary receiver for the collection of all information in our lives, how could
the artistic nude not be a massively represented art form on a global arts forum like deviantART? And besides,

Being raised Roman Catholic, Christmas is a big ordeal for my family. On Christmas Eve, we would always celebrate Christmas with my Mom's side of the family and we would participate in this weird yankee swap gift exchange. It's such an evil game because only one person really ends up being happy with the gift they receive, and everyone else wants to strangle that person. Unfortunately, I always ended up with a gag gift. On Christmas Day, we would go to church and then have my Dad's side of the family over for a gluttonous late lunch/early dinner.

The life of Bob: His life is worse than yoursI'm going to tell you a story about a boy and his journey to escape stupidity,The life of Bob: His life is worse than yours in Personal More Like This
So this boy, let's call him Bob, seems to attract every idiot and difficult person imaginable,
Bob is normally pretty tolerant of these people as he wants to be a good boy, should've named him Tobi,
But one day after driving behind a man who decides that going 12 KPH in a 45 zone is okay, it begins,
He snaps, like a postal man when someone comments on his knee high socks or a history teacher having his dreams butchered by teens,
Bob hit the gas and smashed into the slow moving vehicle sending it off rode and into a clown parade, people laughed too hard to call for help,
Bob then rushed off to his house going under the speed limit and when he pulls into his drive way the sirens go off,
The officer decided he was speeding and when Bob contradicted him he decided to be Clint Eastwood, though he was closer to Barney Fife,
Bob was taken to the pavement and shortly landed in a cell for the night for his disorderly
I'm backI don't have much to say.I'm back in Personal More Like This
All my words for me are like sand in a desert.
Useless and redundant.
Casting mirages around my head.
Until I break down from dehydration and realize I need to drink again.
But it's a desert by the ocean and that is just irony to me.

But for one that experience has predicted shall continue until all logic fades,
The suffering and terror will be evanescent; replaced by empty autonomic movements,
Then goes the heart to its function to cease that which it must preserve; life.
My last resort and my original choiceI hate this life,My last resort and my original choice in Personal More Like This
I can't even think of a better line to write after this one,
I fucking hate everything that happens to me,
I should have died as a sperm so someone else could take over,
I should never have left my room, where it was cold and dark,
But at least I felt at home there, all by myself,
I'm better off by myself, I wish I had never fallen in love the first time,
Sure I was depressed and hated myself,
But it beats being happy and having that taken over and over,
I thought maybe there is a problem with me,
Then I thought it was everyone else,
No, it's definitely me and I wish in some small way I had killed myself the first time,
Now I can't and everything is shit,
Living life woopee!?
Watch I'll try again,
Look at that! I fucked it all upside-topsy turvy.
I can still remember when my heart was ice,
Nothing could touch me, I was apathetic and uncaring,
Then someone melted it, neglected it, let it rot, and gave it back.
So what? I cut the dead off and nurtured it back to life,

I think that lady broke into the commercial and spliced her pics over Maranda's.o//u//o those streaks are her hair hanging down o: in Personal More Like This

The Life and Times of a TeenagerThis journal got pimped... it seems to be more complicated in interface when actually it isn't... I'm hungry again... using my otherworldly ghostly powers I shall make food appear... it didn't work... I need to walk ALL the way downstairs to open the refrigerator... stare inside... shut it in disappointment... look in all the cupboards and drawers... close them in disappointment... say something about there not being any food... and walking back upstairs... hungry... tired from walking... and bored... my life is so hard sometimes.The Life and Times of a Teenager in Personal More Like This
The beach~Meet me in the dark,The beach~ in Personal More Like This
Where the light of the sun is eclipsed by night,
Meet me in a moonlit path,
By the shore of the beach where we can be,
Meet me by the waves,
Roaring as they crash into the sand,
Meet me by the sand,
Where I wrote our names in a heart that says forever,
Meet me under the stars,
A thousand diamonds never as precious as you,
Meet me with a smile,
Sitting by the sandcastle with two parts of the same stick inside,
Meet me with your heart,
You already have mine so we can be complete,
Meet me in the dark,
And stay with me forever.
