Authentic CitizenshipOnce Again, The Room Fell Away. The prodigious artistic and cultural exchange that we have all committed ourselves to building, to participating in and to sharing with each other every day at deviantART often occurs in RL on the decks of HQ as well. One of the best aspects of being in my position here at deviantART is the privilege to curate salons with artists of every medium and success level imaginable, art appreciators, writers, and educators from all points of light within the deviantART community inviting them to make the trek to HQ for what always manifests as an inspiring, thoughtful, educative, and enlightening dialogue. But sometimes, sometimes, things rise to a whole other level. You suddenly find yourself magically reaching that special deviantART "destination" that is a connection point of art, life, community and communication that has no specific Office # designation.

Oct 17, 2012 by techgnotic
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?"

I am bringing your attention to a documentary, Beauty is Embarrassing, that
deeply inspired me after a screening last week. The life wisdom and positive
philosophy unfolding over a lifetime of living as an artist was deeply motivating.
I invited Wayne White, the subject of this documentary, to join deviantART afterwards.
I thought this would be something you would enjoy no matter where you might be at
on your own personal journey as an artist. While watching this I was also reminded
of the heartfelt explanations by many artists of what it means to choose the life of an Artist.
"Do what you love, It's going to lead where you want to go."

The vibrant digital paintings of alicexz are fiery, emotional, and incredibly memorable.
The colors of her creations (mostly portraits of popular TV and Film characters) are unusually vibrant, which is remarkable considering how layered they appear to be. It’s sort of like what manga characters might look like if painted by one of the Dutch Masters. And this artist exhibits just the right amount of quirkiness to leave us wanting to know more: she has a penchant for painting redheads. But, then of course, there’s a lot of red and golden fire burning through most her artworks.

First this server is NOT for PVP of any kind unless both parties have agreed to it. IF YOU ARE HIT and you have not given permission, and you hit back in "Self defense" you can BOTH be banned!

Because death is meaningless here.

This ate into our budget for the print run for the expansions, as international shipping is obscene, especially for a four-and-a-half pound book. So, we've been trying to compensate by making up the difference with a kickstarter page for Fortune and Glory. We need another $600 and we're in the black again, so if any of you can help contribute, or pass this info along to those who might be able to, it would be greatly appreciated.

It is one of many websites doing this.
This is to protest the SOPA Bill.
Just letting you know beforehand. Feel free to forward this journal to any people as you want so they know what is going on.
And also this bit as well:
The effect that the SOPA bill could have on the United States and several websites that could be chosen to be blocked is universal.
The Senate is scheduled to vote on the internet censorship bill on Tuesday the 24th, and unless we can find 41 senators to block the vote, it is going to pass. What AmericanCensorship-dot-org is now demanding is for American users to meet with local senators during the January recess and ask them to vote it down.
Spread the word and maybe consult with your local senator alongside possibly thousands of others.
If this is true, save everything into your hard drives, be it drawings or written stories/poetry, your photos and other things that are on your dA Galleries before the 'blac
bullying...A teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take out a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stomp on it and really mess it up, not to rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty it was. She then told them to tell it they're sorry. Now, even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bullies another child, they may say they're sorry, but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home. Copy and paste this if you are against bullying.bullying... in Personal More Like This

"From what I can tell it's even LESS known than ACTA. I haven't even been able to find any YouTube videos on it.
Here are two lovely quotes I think you will find interesting:
"A leaked version of the February 2011 draft U.S. TPP Intellectual Property Rights Chapter indicates that U.S. negotiators are pushing for the adoption of copyright measures far more restrictive than currently required by international treaties, including the controversial Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement."
"The Office of the U.S. Trade Representative is pursuing a TPP agreement that will require signatory counties to adopt heightened copyright protection that advances the agenda of the U.S. entertainment and pharmaceutical industries, but omits the flexibilities and exceptions that protect Internet users and technology innovators."
Yep, more restrictive than ACTA.
Countries will be forced to rewrite their

About the MInecrafters/Youtubers Life Statusokay, i've been getting attack becuz of this pic people are saying that Notch and EZ are no longer together/married ... i'm going to say this here and only ONCE!!!About the MInecrafters/Youtubers Life Status in Personal More Like This
I'm using their minecraft skins NOT the owners themselves, like Sky and Dawn, they are no longer together, but at the time i made the comic layout they were, but i did tweak it and they just freinds/ex in the comic, but i did not remove the characters... so, if any status of the real people chance, like no longer friends with so-and-so, they're Minecraft OC will NOT reflect!!!
so... yes, in my Minecraft:The Awakening, Notch is still married to EZ (their MC skins)... THIS IS A FAN MADE COMIC!!! I don't go to people who ship Ant and CaptainSparlkez and tell them off... so plz drop it and stop sending me notes! >:E
if you tell me again they or them (or whatever) no longer together or what ever, i'll send you back here...
thank you for understanding ^_^
