there it goes....well, i've been here and poking around in the backlogs of things...my inspirations run high, but my energy low. I don't manage to get much done these days, aside from work. I wish i could say i was doing fabulous and turning it all around, but... that's not the way it goes.So...with this, i will sadly be saying goodbye to my premium membership for a while. I went on a binge of donating points and memberships and didn't even realize i had my own membership expiring.Maybe i'll learn how much i loved it while i don't have it, and i'll be more grateful for having it once i can again.anyway....i'll be poking around a lot more... silently watching from the dark corners. Keep it gruesome out there!
Can You Spare Some Points?Hey guys..i've recently taken over at the :iconda-morgue: and have just discovered that we lost our super group status.I had no idea we were that close to losing it.AND..of course, it comes at a time when i have barely any points to put towards the 4000+ points needed to get our membership back.If you have a few points...doesn't matter how small....would you consider donating it?? i will have a large journal feature done showcasing all of the donors that put forth points.Thank you so much, even for just reading and considering donating.

Time To Kick It In The Ass.obviously i'm not getting any better at keeping a journal.obviously, my updating here SUCKS.however. Its time to change that.its time to do something worthwhile.I was looking on my harddrive and realized i had about 5 pieces i've not uploaded yet. i worked on them, and then left them by the side of the world just waiting for the day i would maybe do something with them.so. i guess i'll upload them.Also. i think i'll be spending more time at the :icondarkart-challenges: side trying to help max out. even though i feel almost entirely left shoe in a right foot world most days, i think i might be able to try to focus there. i need a moment of organization and someone to help keep me in line. the life i have leaves me in complete chaos almost always, and lately the only schedules i know is wake up, go to work, go home, go to bed...and repeat.its time for a change.so. there you have it. I'll be doing a feature next week, maybe tuesday.and i'm doing a mini give away. get i

For starters, it inspired the best pop–rock song about coming of age ever recorded: The Smashing Pumpkins’s 1979.

Collection: StrengthArchiveStrength:icontechgnotic: techgnotic:iconalicexz: alicexzStrength and DisciplineTwitterFacebookGoogle+When “strength” is the topic, do you think of physical or machine power—or of will power and determination to achieve the goals of your cause?Relative to size, no human being has ever been as powerful as a common ant.

'The Invisible Empire' by Juha Arvid HelminenFinnish photographer Juha Arvid Helminen conveys a message on the misuse of power in politics and religion in his dark, faceless portrait series, "The Invisible Empire.""In 2006 I witnessed the so called Smash ASEM demonstration in front of the Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma in Helsinki. I personally experienced the dark side of the Finnish police, with young men hiding behind their uniforms and hoods, anonymously committing misconduct. Later I also witnessed the reluctance of the justice system to punish those in uniform.Uniforms create unity and through them we can for example tell apart a soldier from a civilian. The dark side is the seeming justification to violence and the possibility to disappear in the masses when we do something truly evil.We wear clothes dictated by religion, political thoughts and tradition to communicate and represent authority but also as a sign of belonging and our ide
