Alas it appears the world is not going to end much to my own disappointing, quite anti-climatic, but nonetheless it is the day of the Winter Solstice which is deserving of celebration and acknowledgement. The Yule tide traditionally was a celebration of the rebirth of the Sun God, often known as the Sun King, and acknowledged as Mithra by many. In these dark days that come upon us, the Sun God would be our guide through the darkness and into the light.
So on this the darkest of days in homage to the Sun God I have squired this collection of images and other art works depicting the Sun God (or goddess as the case may be)

*Looks Around* Where am I?
Ok so there are some big changes that have been made since I have last been here, so forgive me while I get a feel for the new Deviant Art, while I get the hang of things. I have been away for a while so I wanted to say sorry to everyone who I have not responded to, and everyone who I seemed to ignore during my hiatus.

What Happened to the Remove Button?
For a while I have been thinking I needed a new blog post because frankly I was getting tired of looking at my old Christmas entry that was still up but honestly I could not really think of anything new and interesting to say. Well I can always count on DA to give me something new to rant and rave about. They never disappoint there. As I always say when I begin one of my "WHY DA WHY" rants there is a lot of really good things about DA and I think the community it provides artists is great, and the fact that it is free is a wonderful thing but at the same time they do things sometimes that I find to be utterly and completely maddening. I hate
The Thirteen Days of Christmas
My parody of the Twelve Days of Christmas song. Yes I was too lazy to actually repeat all the lines but you get the idea. On the first day of Christmas my True Love gave to me a raven in an oak tree On the second day of Christmas my True Love gave to me two screeching owls On the third day of Christmas my True Love gave to me three hungry vultures On the fourth day of Christmas my True Love gave to me four cawing crows On the fifth day of Christmas my True Love gave to me five haunted rings On the sixth day of Christmas my True Love gave to me six wolves a howling On the seventh day of Christmas my True Love gave to me seven bat
