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.

In addition to occupying an ages old position in our cultural consciousness, legend and folklore surrounding the dragon mythology has long been firing the kiln of our dreams with fright and menace.Reptilicus Infernicus: 2012, Year of the Dragon in DeviantART Announcements More Like This

A Pop Culture Interpretation of The Supernatural
Every culture around the world created gods and other mythical beings by mixing and matching fanged and taloned animal parts—e.g., enormous eagle heads on lions’ bodies—human beings have always seemed to need to believe there are powerful and usually quite vengeful supernatural beings lurking just beyond the candlelight.
Supernatural beings come to serve several purposes:
They kept people on the lighted path of truth and goodness, fearful of exploring beyond;
They were a reminder of the punishment we deser

I am wary of my following message not being received with the full gravity it deserves. It is not my intention to unduly alarm the deviantART community, but... $LaurenKitsune is at this time unaccounted for. All attempts on our part to contact her have failed. It is my hope that she has simply taken a much deserved unscheduled pre-Halloween “vacation” and will be back in online communication soon.
Before going dark, $LaurenKitsune was good enough to write and transmit a report on the Slender Man phenomenon sweeping the Internet. That report is published here fo

Early life becomes an exploration of invisible parameters, circles beyond circles, as one pushes out to test the boundaries of safety. There is one’s bedroom, one’s home, neighborhood, school and town, state and nation. Early on, maps become important documents – declarations of being and rights and privileges. In the art world, throughout history, maps have been a constant measure of human progress, from the Phoenecians recording their trade routes over 2000 years ago, or pre-Columbian t

Odyssey II is the second mass collaboration event to be conceived on deviantART this time under the watchful gaze and guiding hand of none other than Clive Barker - - the master of fantastical narratives. The result will be published next year in digital and traditional book form.
Read about the Project and participate in the creative event of the new millennium (before it ends, of course, with the apocalypse). Here is the current prompt inspired by the latest Odyssey II chapter chosen by Clive.

Cthulhu is Still CallingThe Enemy at the Gates, the “Other”, forever lurking in the darkness and plotting an invasion most evil and an enslavement most hideous, is probably the original seminal “narrative” that was born when humans first acquired self-awareness and began trying to explain themselves to themselves as they sat round their fires built at the mouths of their caves.Cthulhu is Still Calling in DeviantART Announcements More Like This

Ninja Turtles by ~lukekeith
Mon Apr 3, 2012, 01:00 AM
The recently announced changes to the core mythos of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the backlash
from fans over the ending to Mass Effect 3 have ignited an incredible discussion about the rapidly evolving
“collaborative” relationship between producers and consumers of videogames, movies, and similar “products.”
Now it’s exploded beyond the secure borders of top news publications, gaming and entertainment websites.
Looks like this long-bubbling cauldron of traditional ways and means, modern tech, web economics, core beliefs
and future shock has finally boiled over...
Should you listen to your audience?
Alice X. Z. - Living Rainbow Taking FlightThe 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.Alice X. Z. - Living Rainbow Taking Flight in DeviantART Announcements More Like This

I know you've all been wondering when the heck I was going to start my latest contest so I have good news! You don't have to wait any longer. It's llama time!
This contest is going to be pretty simple. It involves two amazing things that are rarely combined -- llamas and giant grandma underwear. The goal of this contest is to make some sort of artwork involving those two things. What you can do is up to you! It can be an exact interpretation or an abstract one.
Some examples for inspiration would be: a llama in MLP style with a underwear cutie mark, a llama wearing pin

I mean I already watch Bleach at 12:00 a.m. and Naruto at 12:30 a.m. so I dont think it would be much of a problem for me to watch Soul Eater at 1:00 a.m. but is it even worth watching it or should I just ignore it and go to sleep after Naruto ends?Should I watch? in Personal More Like This
