Pre-Turkey Update!
HEY ALL YOU POOPY PEOPLE!!!!! :iconharharplz: No, I'm just joshing, I adore you all!!!  But it's the eve of Ye Great American Gluttonfest, which needs to be put in its proper perspective.  Let us be thankful for each other's love and friendship, let us strive to wash away all the petty foolishness and negativity of our artificial society, focus on the basic good, and pray for better days--even if you're not religious, concentrate all your positive emotions and thoughts on these goals.
And let's listen to this uplifting music together:
AND AS ALWAYS, On With Ye Motley!!!

"Then again the great artist, besides aiming at perfection of form searches for truth. He never, in any of his works, allows what he knows to be false to remain. If he believes a work to be false in any part he will change, destroy or abandon it. The longer he works the more exacting he becomes in the demand for what is true. This insistence upon truth is of great importance today. The invention of atomic weapons is a far less sinister threat to human happiness than the discovery of the power of untruth. The realisation this it is possible to influence millions by the deliberately told lie is one of the most dreadful threats that civilisation has ever been compelled to face. The atomic bomb in itself is harmless. But the untruth, or the deliberately fostered ignorance, that inflame a nation may, at any moment, cause it to be dropped. Only truth can combat falsehood, and the artist is a champion of truth".
"Without truth there can be no freedom. Art honors the spirit of man, his intellect and his feelings, and would have them free".
