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?"

Opening the Darkest Door
I have recently come across a most disturbing phenomenon in my studies of the Diabolic Infestation of the Soul. It seems there is a most frightening psychological conundrum when considering the concept of demonic possession even the most remote possibility of reality upon our earthly plane is the notion that just believing it may be true could very likely be the spark needed for the Demon to discover, seek out, and ultimately inhabit its next vessel of evil: You.

I believe in deviantART. Which is to more accurately say I believe in the concept and the reality of the deviantART community.
When in contemplation of the eternal wellspring that is the deviantART project and how it has become the engine keeping my heart and mind on a full burn as I strive to be an upstanding member of the community as well as a helpful architect and eager participant in the conversation -- my thoughts inevitably settle upon my attempts to define my concept of Gratitude.

A magic of effective art can be a drawing that appears to be a movie still, clipped from a film narrative, evoking a powerful sense of storytelling— and the viewer wants to know the rest of the story. This phenomenon has recently manifested itself on deviantART— and in a big way— once again.

There is no cosmic law that states artists must suffer many long years and demeaning day-jobs before a window of opportunity cracks open just enough to hop on through.
Fellow deviant Brian Kesinger is a case in point.
His first “day-job” in 1996—he was hired straight out of his senior year of high school—was drawing Tarzan for Disney.
Brian stayed at Disney and he considers every day there a part of his ongoing education as an artist. He most recently worked on “Wreck It Ralph,” and has become active in the story department, where he dreams up fresh narratives and new characters with fellow Story Artists and Disney directors.
But more and more, he is being recognized for his own style and own creations

Anyway I wanted to post this for a certain someone.
On February 14 2010 Angels & Airwaves released their third studio album Love growing up I always hating everything. I didn't think there was much to life. I hated life, growing up, and the people around me. I wanted life to end so bad. Then when Angels & Airwaves released their album LOVE Tom Delonge made a blog stating that the album was free, and he wanted everyone to share it, with friends, family, loved ones and just the world itself. When I heard this album it changed my view of the world, and the people in it. It may sound weird and un-like me to say this (especially if you know me in real life) that life gets better. Even when it seems at it's end it gets better. That's what this album made me realize. I'm going to share some of the lyrics of the songs, feel free to listen to them as well, but

Useless fact about Ronery:
The summer i got my xbox about 3-4 years ago, i played on xbox live for 14+ hours straight with a friend. Then took a small break at 3 am and played for another hour or so.
Anyway Assassins Creed Revelations is pretty kick-ass. i still need to get used to the controls again. C: I also tired Skyrim, which is also equally badass. i dont feel the need to play the shit out of my xbox again Then again that's better in the long run, so i can on balance school work and video games better then i did as a freshman.
Oh and thanksgiving (well in america at least dont know about other countries) is around the corner and my mom is making do shopping for the "big" dinner. now i get to get some Soy Turkey.

I'd like to announce that I have come up with some new story treatments for the show which I think will surely work. I will explain them as follows,
This story centers on Bart, which hasn't been done enough in the recent seasons. It is about Bart bonding again with Ned Flanders, something I personally loved in "The Simpsons Movie". In this Bart is signed up to enter a boys biking race, but he can't use his bike because it needs a severe overhaul and besides the rest of his family are too busy to train him, Homer has to fix his car motor, Marge has too many dishes and laundry, Lisa has to study for a test, and Grandpa who is personally against the use of bicycles refuses. Then Ned Flanders offers to train Bart because he reveals that he was champion in school bike races during his childhood so he starts training Bart and he lends him his old childhood bike, an early 60s children's bicycle, which he fixes up and fixes up and repaints and polishes speciall

Ok, please don't think of this vid as something for Codename Kids Next Door Creator. I watched this to see what he had to say about creating the show, but he said some REALLY inspiring things as well.
Here's one for you:
Tom Warburton actually says he wasn't a good artist.
People often think that you need to be amazing at drawing to be an animator. NO YOU DON'T. You have to WANT to do it.
The vid is only about ten minutes long. Take a look at it. It inspired me just as much as Dan and Swampy's work does. These guys here, worked their butts off to get where they are. And all three of them have TV shows that were and are still considered to be the BEST of kids cartoons.
