PAUL CEZANNE: The Bridge from Monet to Picasso
Untitled by FilledArles
January 19 marks the birthday of Paul Cezanne in 1839.
By the time of his death in 1906, he was recognized, especially by younger artists, as the genius who began his career under the tutelage of impressionist Camille Pissarro, and then went on to become the “architect” who reduced the subjects of his paintings to cylinders,

The Sistine Chapel
Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti Simoni was born 540 years ago on March 6, 1475.
His preeminence in the art world as being one of the two greatest artists of the Italian High Renaissance (1495-1527) assures that his lasting presence is felt as keenly today as it was five centuries ago. Every year, art lovers from around the world make special pilgrimages to Italy, drawn by a visceral need to experience in person

Total cost of planned human exploration missions is strongly driven by the need to launch large quantities of rocket propellant, drinking water, oxygen, and radiation shielding. If plentifully-available in cis-lunar space, water could be used directly as propellant in Solar Thermal Rockets (STRs) to provide inexpensive transportation. The lunar surface has been proposed as a source of such water, but independent analysis of Lunar ISRU suggests that it would not be cost effective due to the Size, Weight, Power, and Cost (SWAP-C) of ISRU equipment, the large round trip delta-V to get to the lunar surface, and the logistical issues of working there. Likewise, a technical publication regarding an asteroid mining by a NIAC-funded team recently concluded that they “could not find any scenario for a realistic commercial economic retur

I have amazing things to show you, the myriad living breathing worlds future humanity might craft in the outer reaches of the solar system. I’d like to take you on a journey, from an outpost on the moon, to the surface of a terraformed Mars, to the solar systems edge, a grand tour of the large scale space colonies, industrialized moons, and habitats of the System States Era. My intent is to bring the setting alive ... I want you to see what only I have seen in my mind’s eye.
So, for the past month I’ve been transitioning to Blender. Progress has been smooth and I am now working fluently within the program. Soon I will have new works to share. The near future will bring a more robust texturing, lighting, rigging, and rendering capability to my Orion’s Arm setting, and the day after that, who knows, the sky’s the limit.

Orion: Nuclear Pulse Propulsion.
Project Orion was initiated in 1958 at General Atomics, primarily under auspices of the U.S. Air Force Special Weapons Center, and Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory, with later participation by the George C. Marshall Space Flight Center and NASA's Future Projects Office. Project Orion was funded under ARPA (Advanced Projects Research Agency (now DARPA)).

This series features artists whose work is grounded in hard science, and one cannot get more grounded in science than Blender artist Rhys Taylor, astrophysicist, Arecibo galaxy hunter, currently hailing from the Astronomical Institute, Prague.
When I started researching Project Orion after reading George Dyson’s book on the topic* one of the first things I came across was Rhys Taylor’s now famous youtube video Project Orion: A Re-Imagining. At the time I never dreamed that one day I would be brainstorming nuclear pulse propulsion concepts with Rhys1, nor did I imagine that my nuclear pulse propulsion art would play a role, albeit a small role2, the larger contribution being made by Winchell Chung, who provided Rhys with early concept art for the Discovery spacecraft from Arthur C.

Why Does The International Space Station Have Such A Weird Shape?
From the article: “When I watch science fiction, I find myself looking at the smooth, uniform, symmetrical ships and asking myself questions like How do they reject heat? Where are they getting their electrical power? Where are the communications antennae? How does a docking vehicle avoid pluming? Why did they put the tanks on the inside where they are harder to replace? Why are they using so much more material than needed? Where the heck did they build that thing? And so on."

I do not honestly begin this with the intention of telling people what to think or state emphatically that my positions are unassailable. All I want to do is make mention of my understanding and support that with evidence.

Is Tolerance Tolerant?Its possible, I hope at least, to have a discussion with point and counter point without the need to become enemies.Is Tolerance Tolerant? in Personal More Like This
How many times has someone silenced you with a simple offhanded reiteration of 'That wasn't very tolerant'?
Strange how tolerance sometimes becomes the byword of intolerance: namely censoring opposing positions without any due consideration.
Now not everyone uses 'tolerance' in this way. We all grew up learning tolerance was a good thing and that people should be accepted just the way they are. Its a good thing, definitionally, that you seek to act in a moral and friendly fashion and encourage that behavior in others by calling their attention to speaking out in anger or being unjust to others.
'Everyone is entitled to their opinions' is taken at face value as undeniable fact, yes? Of course. We're all well bred people who wouldn't dream of imposing ourselves on others.
Or would we?
This 'tolerance' and 'equality of opinion' stops dead in the mind of many for people w

Megaupload, a file sharing website, is completely gone. If you go to that domain its entirely blank.
But here's the thing...the FBI destroyed it.
The main offices of this site were located in New Zealand, but there were other smaller offices in the US. The Federal Government literally hunted down the representatives of this webpage and arrested them in two countries, then erased it from existence!
But not before they seized all the records of anyone who ever used the site as evidence.
If you or anyone else has used Megaupload illegally, this will probably be very disturbing.
Why? Because their site was distributing copy-write infringing uploads.
So those who claim SOPA and PIPA will do nothing, take a good look into the black hole of Megaupload. The FBI can track you down and throw you in prison and then track all your constituents ALREADY.
But the reach of this is even wider.

“My paintings could probably be categorized into two groups,
especially if you are one of those people who like labeling things into neat packages.
I have a strong emotional side, sensitive and poetic, with all the adorning side-effects,
which enables me to lift paintings up to what has been referred to as visual poetry or poetic symbolism.
The other me is cool and collected, witty and sharp,
with a passion for philosophy, psychology and games…
That is rather the surrealistic and wacky me, and so are some of my paintings.”

A word about the state of 2DAfter hearing about Disney gutting their 2D theatrical animation department, I think I've finally realised something. 2D isn't dying everywhere it's only dying in the North America's Theatrical movies. 2D is pretty much everywhere else in the world. Japan is still putting out several 2D TV shows and theatrical films, 2D is still big in TV animation (Even more bigger than CGI, since 2D is easier to achieve on a TV budget), and it's huge on the internet, serval shorts while made in adobe flash still use the frame by frame techniques of classic 2D animation. And it is possible for independent studios to make 2D animated films, recently the web series Dick Figures started a Kickstarter and managed to get enough money to produce a movie based on the series, in fact I think they're getting close to finishing it now. So in conclusion 2D is only dying when it comes to theatrical animation in North America, it's alive and well everywhere else and if we want to bring it back to North AmerA word about the state of 2D in Personal More Like This
