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. The room falls away…Authentic Citizenship in DeviantART Announcements More Like This

Is it better to possess a thing of beauty, or to experience the ultimate consummation of oneness with that beautiful thing by actually consuming it... and being left only with the memory of its beauty? Leave it up to our deviantARTists to think of a way to have it both ways – but left over as a feast for the eyes, preserved eternally on the digital planes of deviantART.
Craft, design, and artistry as applied to the most delicious and sinful of the culinary disciplines rises forth as we shine warming a light on this small but incredibly skilled serving of artists within the deviantART community. In an effort to taste all of the communities within deviantART, let

The Comfort of Mindless Obedience
When is information true and useful and when is it just “propaganda?” Why in fact is an image or phrase or animated art sequence “propaganda” rather than it simply being a “lie?” What about acceptable lies that define our society as much as they degrade it - - for example commercials that obviously hype a product with untruths or political advertisements full of unachievable platitudes.

The Witchas Multifaceted Icon
Throughout history artists of every discipline have been fascinated, inspired and transfixed at every historical stage of the shifting perceptions of the “Witch” in any given time or society. The seams within every page of every chapter written against or in defense of the witch have been alternatively filled with oppressive sexism, blind eyed religious bigotry, occult doctrine, fevered and forbidden lustful sexuality, misplaced fear, and reams of wide eyed superstition.
Consequently, the colors, and lines within every stroke upon every canvas and visceral depiction, carry all the burdensome weight of the long intricacies of this subject. With respect to this much maligned, religiously and politically repurposed, perpetually misunde

The Fairy Tale, A Lifelong ResonanceA thousand years tradition of scaring children at bedtime continues for children of all ages.

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.

Especially when he thinks the videos are all live and that when you pause a video, the person pauses in real life.
I ended up going onto Wikipedia and reading it to him.

When I got baptized I had my head dunked under 'holy' water for five seconds.
Can you see why I am mad? Blood Catholics dunking my 3 year old head under water. They tried drowning me, I'm certain of it!
Oh, and to add to that, I became partially deaf that same year! I swear they made me deaf.
I hate the Catholics who baptized me.
Maybe why I stopped going to my Catholic church and am now a mix between a Christian and Catholic.

Bryan Fuller is a true geniusEveryone on this show is a genius.Bryan Fuller is a true genius in Personal More Like This
Honestly never in my entire life a show has been this emotionally stimulating.
But this, every single episode I have had an immediate emotional reaction to and that simply is something that doesn't happen. This is a show that has the same effect on me no matter how many times a re-watch an episode, sometime even MORE so the second or third time through.
Mads is a fantastic Hannibal and is able to convey emotion so subtly that you have to really pay attention to catch it, but you know it is there. He makes it so Hannibal is only predictable when it's convenient.
Hugh Dancy as Will Graham, oh my lord. I really connect with Will's character and I'm honestly not sure I would if Hugh didn't play him. every reaction, every word, every fucking movement portrays something that just makes you know what is going though Will's head.
Just this entire show is a work of art.

It's been the Christmas holidays for ages now and I've been terribly ill through it with the flu. Basically I've not done any writing whatsoever.
Luckily I was inspired by a short piece writen by a great friend :iconDanselInWonderland: and it's got all my creative juices pumping up a story of my own so I'm eager to write it down. Thought I'd make a note of this, mainly to thank her, there's always inspiration right under you nose (or on your Facebook page in this case) waiting to pump those creative juices! Wooooooo!!!

My personal online psychiatrist is making me narrate this nonsense down on the chip embedded in my tooth in hopes that someday I may be cured of my "incompatibility" with ANNET, or at least possibly reduce the "mild psychosis caused by work-related stress" as she calls it.
I know that it's not going to happen. The problem is something genetic and while those goons in the genetics department would love to get their machines into my brain, I prefer the lack of sleep and headaches to lobotomy.
I seen the reports on their test subjects: "total neural shut-down", "subject resists integration with the net, increasing the signal strength lead to damage to the 85% of the frontal lobe."
Call me old fashioned, but I like my brain the way it is.

To anyone who finds these memory cards,
and the messages left within...
My name is Charles Snippy. I am probably the last sane human being left on earth. I know not whether you will understand this message. I know not whether you'll even be able to decode the ones and zeros on these data cards. I know not whether my voice will even reach anyone.
I know not, whether the microscopic drives will last long enough and whether the plastic and metal which composes them will not disintegrate into dust as centuries pass or whether the titanium shell encasing them will remain in place or be consumed by the ever-changing landscape, lost forever.
And yet I still have hope that someone will find the story of my life, long past and learns something of use from it.
If you are still human, then this will be a story about the collapse of civilization of your forefathers through greed and arrogance.
If you are some other species entirely, then it is a story about how our human race was extin

I find it hard enough to leave those pictures (Believe me! I would like to put my head in the land or flee to a mountain) but I think that is a way to see how I'm changing over time. It's weird. I couldn't explain it.
I hope to improve or at least get new things. It will be a very difficult task. I'm a very "hard" to pose and it's tough... To this must be added the fact that I use the timer, which complicates things even more. Add the lack of space, low mood and mediocre cameras and....voila! Disaster! hahahaha

I'm going to start being so much nicer from now on. I'm changing my life around. What better place to start than here? I'm doing features, random giveaways, donating, commenting, faving, llamas.
However, I'll need some help.
Any donation, no matter how big or how small, would be greatly appreciated. Commissions are open for those who would like something in return for their contribution.
Thanks and bless you all.

"My father left those for me.
Mother, Father, I am sorry. I have failed you both.
I made a promise to protect our people. I thought…I thought if I could stop the templars—if I could keep the Revolution free from their influence—that those I supported would do what was right.
They did—I suppose—do what was right…
What was right for them.
As for you, Father: I thought I might unite us, that we would forget the past and forge a better future.
In time I believed you could be made to see the world as I did; to understand…but it was just a dream. This too, I should have known.
Were we not meant to live in peace, then? Is that it?
Are we born to argue? To fight?
So many voices, each demanding something else… It has been hard at times, but never harder than today to see all I worked for; perverted, discarded, forgotten!
You would say I have described the whole of history, Father. Are you smiling, then? Hoping I might speak the words
