Outlaw at the Bleeding Edge
of Independent Cinema
Movies featuring the latest in high tech digital effects, eye-popping CGI environments and ear-splitting surround sound, are often described as “pushing the envelope.” But they’re mega-million-dollar productions that are delivered back to the studios by the filmmakers precisely as pre-ordered. Rarely is there danger of disaster, so what envelope has been pushed?
“Envelope-shredder” might be a better designation for Brian Taylor...
Who, usually in collaboration with partner-in-mayhem Mark Neveldine, has given the world such films as Crank, Crank: High Voltage, Gamer, Pathology, and recently Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance.

Halloween is a time for masks. Aliens, zombies, vampires and werewolves will soon walk the suburban streets in search of tasty treats. But then there is the next level of masks—the likenesses of movie stars, politicians and other celebrities with their most unflattering features exaggerated. Cheap shots, to be sure, but alibied as “satire.” We finally arrive at the “non–off–the–rack” mask–making of actual make–up artists. Here’s where the mask one chooses tells us things about the person we only thought we knew. You see, the scariest thing about masks is their very concept—of a friend or loved one, beneath the surface, not really being the person you know at all. That is a truly fearful thi

Oct 17, 2012 by techgnotic
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?"

At SCAD there are a lot of more well known designers, O'More is very small distance away from home, and Parsons has alumni students who work with my favorite designers and it's in NYC.....NYC people!!! Oh did I mention I met a billionaire that just graduated one year prior to earning her money.

THE TASK IS SIMPLE: All you have to do is draw or write a scene that includes at least one canon Transformer and one canon character from another fandom. For example, you can draw Megatron and Loki from the Marvel Universe together, or write about Sideswipe and Sunstreaker pulling a prank with Fred and George Weasley from the Harry Potter series. Be creative!

One of the rules of the group is: "Do not advertise other sites, groups, chats, or artwork of yours on our front page!"

If you want to advertise something, SEND THE GROUP A NOTE with a request. The request should pertain to Transformers in some way or another. I will be updating THIS blog specifically for advertising, whether it be REQUESTS or COMMISSIONS or anything else. The reason I am doing this and not letting you advertise on our front page is because not a lot of members look at the front page every day so you will not get the largest audience possible.

What I wish is to have one (or more) animal character(s) I will like enough to use/draw/etc. But I can't seem to be able to create an animal OC I like enough by myself. I have plenty of human OC that I never post but whatever but no recent animal OCs I really like. So this is why I'm holding this contest

- So, hello there! Tell us a bit about yourself -- when did you started making music?
I started officially making music around 2007, when I first used The Jazz+ MIDI Sequencer to make video game-style music inspired by rhythm games like O2Jam. Then, I was introduced to FL Studio 7, which paved my way to creating music. I originally started with instrumentals, without lyrics, and then added vocals later on.- What made you decide to make music in the first place?
I've decided to make music due to my enthusiasm of vi
// DECEMBER FEATURES //From now on, there will be a monthly newsletter for the group that focuses on features for the submissions from each of the categories (minus WIPs), to encourage more submissions and self-improvement. So check below for December’s pickings! Features were chosen by me, DreamForecast and innercartwheel (please welcome our long-lost co-founder!), and are based on many factors (not just technique and skill but also creativity and originality) to make it as fair as possible. Also, we want to stress that this is not a contest (those are coming later!); this is a way for artists to gain recognition. It's a way of saying, "Great job, keep it up!" not "This is perfect and you should just stop worrying about improving," because the most important thing we want to do here is get better. So we encourage you guys to always strive to improve your craft, but more importantly, just have fun with it. If you didn't get featured this time, don// DECEMBER FEATURES // in Personal More Like This

Hey music people! You may have noticed there has been no Feature Contest for the month of September ... That's due to a few reasons, one of them being TIME, and the other being QUALITY. I'm thinking of ways to make better contests. BUT, here's an FL STUDIO CONTEST that you can enter!
It's a music production contest for FL Studio users (sorry if you're non-FL, we'll have something for ya soon enough) hosted by the "Kazaki's Fruity Loops Tutorial" blog (http://www.kaz.ph/) owned and run by our very own kazaki03!

You'll be given a set of samples/presets to work with, and you can ONLY use those. You can use your own effects and mess around with the samples/presets however you want, but you gotta limit to yourself to manipulating just those set of materials. Hey -- limitation spawns a lot of unprecedented creativity,

If you are society's bitch, this is very likely what your "happy" life blue print will look like. Almost everyone does this, and it's not a coincidence: people do as they are told. Told by the movies, by their friends and family, books, tradition, religion, even government subsidies, and the education system, conditioned into obedience. So they, what are the odds that this is indeed everyone's dream rather than something imposed on them covertly externally, as I believe to be the case?
But just today, I've freed you from the bullshit The blueprint above is not available to you, so you have to ACTUALLY pick what you'd lik
Worst pope better than best presidentAs an antitheist, I detest most aspects of most religions. However, let me give you a few ways in which the worst Pope you can think of is better than the best head of government (of your country) imaginable.Worst pope better than best president in Personal More Like This
CHOICE. You don't have to be a Catholic. You have that choice of the worst misogynistic homophobic Pope having little to no impact on your life directly. You don't have that choice with government. Your vote has an approximately 0.00000% chance of changing the outcome of an election, so you do not choose your president, your peers do. You just have to live with that choice, and whatever policies it may bring with it. It's also not very practical to move away to escape the authority that's claimed over you just to land yourself in an area of another similar authority.
POWER. Even if you are a Catholic, the Pope can't throw you in jail for not following the rules and commands no enforceable authority over you. Suppose the bad pope says that gays should be stoned to dea

On the day of your birth, you were likely surrounded by those who loved you, who would lead you through the rough first scary years of life, and who would stand by as you grew into a capable person. As time passed, others may have drifted into your life, and even if you didn't know it, they also nurtured and cared for you in much the same way, helping to shape the person you would become.
When a community like deviantART is born, the same common thread binds its originators and founding members together. Over the years, more and more creative beings drift into its life and strengthen its core every single day, resulting in an exponentially inspirational powerhouse for the sheer fact that they've become a part of it. That nurturing spirit, that inherent support system, that caring community inspires deviantART to grow, and it comes from inside each and every one of you.
