Days of Doodles
Mindful Meditation of Daily Drawing
Foreword by techgnotic
Gabriel Picolo is a graphic design student in Brazil who has provided at least two people—me and himself—a most compelling reason for getting out of bed every morning in 2014. He calls it the 365 Days of Doodles Project, for which he creates, each day, one of his wildly imaginative pencil sketch and ink drawings (quite a bit more elevated than a “doodle”—more like a free-flowing meditation).

On March 1, 2012 the Nevada DMV issued the first license for a Google Driverless Car. The idea behind this innovation is that one day soon new technology will drive cars safer and more skillfully than humans, thus saving lives and billions of dollars in car crashes. How well this idea catches on is a bit questionable, given the powerful “romance” of driving one’s car, but it’s certainly an indicator of things to come in the daily intersection of human and artificial intelligence and mobility. There have always been those who have dreamed of stepping into a mechanical exo-skeletal-type “suit” and letting the engineering do the work, insta

For many of us, the first “art gallery” to command our attention (and constant, even daily, monitoring) in our
lives existed within the pages of the local newspaper. It was called “the movie section” and its ever-changing movie
advertisements were like little frames that rarely contained less than pure magic for young imaginations.
The Film Poster has existed since the earliest days of silent movies and the pulse-elevating excitement of the
first sight of an upcoming adventure, action, or sweeping love story that we might have only “heard good things about”
still packs a psychic punch throughout movie lovers today.

So what did you “actually get done” in the past year? How closer are you to a grand goal in life? An assessment is made and then the inevitable Step 2 of the yearly process is engaged, which is often a word for word repeat of last year’s Step 2:
The New Year’s Resolution
There seem to be two main strategies that emerge at this point of facing the New Year, a “brand new morning.” The lone wolf quietly acknowledges goals not yet reached, and is even more secretive in the “new plan.” “I’ll show them,” becomes the new privat

Propaganda I by Yuujakumi
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.

I. Shinobi = Emotionless tools.
II. How one can become stronger by protecting the ones important for them.
Now let's take them one by one.
I. Shinobi = emotionless tools.
A tool called Shinobi.
As Kakashi and Zabuza start fighting throughout these two fighting, Kishi introduces to us the concept of the what a true Shinobi meant at that time, as I stated before, as Zabuza said that he gained a high quality tool for himself, a fighting machine known as a Shinobi who doesn't have a heart nor fear of death. Furthermore Kishi explaines how one, in order to become that perfect tool, has to erase its humanity like Zabuza has done with Haku by training him from his early ages.
While Kakashi and Zabuza fight, he orders Sakura to stay and protect Tazuna because this fight is seri

I have a word to say to every YouTube reviewer out there… Do you guys really consider yourself reviewers? Do you know what even means to do a proper review on a piece of art you're doing? Or you misunderstand personal opinion as a review?
If you don't know, the all-mighty Google will help you. All I have to say is this: SHAME ON YOU! And not because I am a Sakura fan, far from it. But because all the reviewers I have personally watched, barely have a clue about what they are reviewing, how to do it, what really makes a review, so on and so forth.
Now, let me make my own review and show you what it really means. Yes, I might sound cocky and

Ok, so I've promised this post for a long time ago and here it is, at last.
This will be mainly about Haruno Sakura, the female member of Team 7, the heroine of this story, wether you like it or not. I am not here for your shipping wars, I could care less about it as I am a multi-shipper and in the end I'm going to get what I want, while some of you will be whining over the fact that your pairing didn't get to be cannon.
I like Sakura as a character, not because she's been made for the sake of a pairing. I like Sakura because she is so perfect with her imperfections, yes, imperfections, that any of the people nowadays could be.
I am saying this because I am looking at the people bashing her and they're not even 10% of what she is/represents, yet people bash her just to make Hinata look bette

Important News on the MLP ComicIt looks to be pretty official, according to our editor, that the MLP comic has been pushed back two weeks to Nov 28 for street release date.Important News on the MLP Comic in Personal More Like This
Before anybody gets upset (like one jerk on Twitter did), keep in mind the scope of this production: This is not a fanmade comic as some seem to think it is: This is a fully licensed comic book from a major Comic publisher done in cooperation with Hasbro. It is also one of the most highly anticipated comics for the entire fall/winter schedule. As such, we'd rather do it well than do it fast.
The orders for this book have far exceeded what was first anticipated, so a little more padding in the schedule is going to help to ensure the product can meet the demand
I also want to remind everyone: I am NOT The distributor/publisher... I just draw it. You cannot purchase the book directly from me. Here's some ground I've covered a number of times, but I keep getting asked... so here we go:

So I just wasted a good portion of my time writing this TL;DR because honestly, listing my opinions one by one and then brooding over the possibility of each is the only coping mechanism for what Mofftiss has done to my mind. I of course, really wish that Jim is alive. He is a brilliant character and Andrew Scott is a brilliant actor. It'll feel slightly different if season 3 doesn't include him in it ):
Apologies for grammar and sentence structure mistakes in advance. Because I'm just too lazy too check lol.
A deviant told me he/she believes Jim is not dead, and asks if he/she's the only one thinking this:
You're not! I'm desperately hoping that this is the case too! I mean, I don't think one is cleverer than another, and if Sherlock could come up with an elaborate escape plan in case he HAD to resort to 'killing' him
