RESPECT. THE. MODELS !!!Ok so it seems I'll have to do that too.
I'll keep it simple : read the title.
I've been doing a bit of nude photography these last months and even though the vast majority of the people who visited, faved and commented my photos were totally fine, there's always a small fraction of weirdos/perverts/wathever and that really pisses me off.
I'll say that once : nude/erotic photography is not porn and models are not objects (and that also applies for porn models by the way) !
so everyone have to BEHAVE PROPERLY and RESPECT THE MODELS
you can act as a dickhead with me, attack me, critique me, send me weird messages, BUT... one more time... Don't touch the models.
If you want to write some kind of pervert comment, keep in mind that nor the model, nor the photographer, nor even the people who truly appreciate the photo will like your comment.
You want porn ? Fine. There are plenty of website for that on the net, or even photo galleries here on dA that are more about porn than about nude. Use

MARCH - PISCESMore Like This
March marks the beginning of Spring and capture our attention with Pisces constellation.
So, let's see! :icontruesmiles:
People born under the sign of Pisces have an intuitive feel well developed, They love to work and are very diligent, they follows an exact plan, are dreamers and responsive. Their idealistic principles, aspire to harmony, beauty, peace and quiet. When they realize that life is not perfect, Pisces are seized by a state of anxiety and concern. They love the moments of quiet and solitude when can reflect on life.
Governed by Uranus, natives of Pisces (19 February - 20 March ) put in the forefront of spiritual values, the material is secondary. Also, if they have to choose between old and new, prefer what they know best - they will choose old. Pisces accept with difficulty, changes and innovations, so they try to avoid them.

Reduced to AshesA Phoenix to Arise
If something burns your soul with purpose and desire, it’s your duty to be reduced to ashes by it.
Today, Lady Gaga’s throne as a reigning pop diva is a 24 carat gold wheelchair, emergency hip surgery forcing the cancellation of her latest tour – a betrayal more devastating for her than for the typical performer, given her relationship with her fans. Her body has finally broken in sacrifice to the needs of her monsters for constant contact and reassurance. The question now is whether this brutal brush with her own mortality will result in the pop goddess pulling back from the edge – or only drive her to new heigh

Picasso seeing a seven as an upside down nose?
Right brain warriors in the new age will be the coveted candidates ordained to lead and guide us; lifting the torch to light the way forward into a brave new beautiful world.
Artists have always feared that they are unappreciated and that the march of progress comes only from business, science and their machines. 1984 was imagined by an artist projecting these exact fears. Our guest essayist suggests the computer will never be our master, but only the super high speed counting machine it was meant to be leaving humans with only one pure task— being creative.

Ep.24 "Scarred" Discussion(Updated)More Like This
Called it, totally called it! Aya was revealed to be the embodiment of life from the central Green Lantern Battery, forcing herself into existence just like a newborn child in a big big world(or Universe, to be more appropriate). Another thing that has caught my attention from this revelation is that she is also the "spark" of another DC Comics character, another embodiment of life from the Green Lantern energy, and that is the one and only Ion. It would make sense if you put it together, a portion of Ion's spark which was from the life of the Green Lantern energy gave a new life to what we know now as Aya, which in turn you could say can be way the "daughter" of Ion. Tremendous if you were ask me.
Now on to Razer, finally acknowledging his error of the entire series for mistaking Aya as a mere machine, also going berserk at Hal Jordan for almost killing her at the end of the episode which solidify his love and care for her and on how much
The Enduring Enigma of CollageFebruary 21, 2013/by techgnoticMore Like This
Collage is one of those art forms that immediately sets off heated debate about our most fundamental ideas and visceral feelings about the very essence of art itself.
Turn of the century troublemakers Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso began enhancing their paintings with glued on bits of cut out fabric and other materials, thus neatly blurring the line between the art categories of painting and sculpture. They shifted the emphasis or “meaning” of their painted images beyond an attempted interpretation of the painted “text” to thinking about the artists’ “process” – something wholly separate from the paintings themselves.
And with that a whole new Rubic’s Cube of basic questio

Lipstick in SchoolAccording to a news report, a certain private school in Brisbane was recently faced with a unique problem. A number of 12-year-old girls were beginning to use lipstick and would put it on in the bathroom. That was fine, but after they put on their lipstick they would press their lips to the mirror leaving dozens of little lip prints.More Like This
Every night the maintenance man would remove them and the next day the girls would put them back.
Finally the principal decided that something had to be done. She called all the girls to the bathroom and met them there with the maintenance man. She explained that all these lip prints were causing a major problem for the custodian who had to clean the mirrors every night (you can just imagine the yawns from the little princesses). To demonstrate how difficult it had been to clean the mirrors, she asked the maintenance man to show the girls how much effort was required.
He took out a long-handled squeegee, dipped it in the toilet, and cleaned the mirror w

Just then Jessica said, "I knew this would happen when I told you two days ago to get that light fixed."
So the officer asked for John's license and after looking at it said, "Sir your license has expired."
And again John apologized and mentioned that he didn't realize that it had expired and would take care of it first thing in the morning.
Jessica said, "I told you a week ago that the state sent you a letter telling you that your license had expired."
Well by this time, John is a bit upset with his wife contradicting him in front of the officer, and he said in a rather loud voice, "Jessica, shut your mouth!!"

NASA officially announced today that both Boeing and SpaceX have been awarded Commercial Crew Transportation Capability contracts. These contracts are for the development of spacecraft that will be able to take astronauts to the International Space Station, with a target start date of 2017. The third company in the running for a contract, Sierra Nevada Corporation, did not receive an award.
This announcement from NASA partially contradicts earlier reports that Boeing was to be the “primary” winner of the contract, with SpaceX only receiving a secondary award. Instead, NASA doesn’t appear to be distinguishing between the two
