Just a few this time It's been a busy month. Cheers
Devious JournalSo clearly the monthly features didn't last xD I haven't even been looking through my watchers submissions in as long.. sorry, guys. There are over 3000 deviations pending xD I will browse at some stage
Semester two is over for the year, so I'm spending my summer so far looking for work to keep myself, well, not homeless and/or ridiculously in debt by Semester One 2015. I murdered my exams.
My photos are usually taken on the weekends, when I had (or rather made) the free time to get out. I really want to begin working on more conceptual/experimental ideas at some stage, in contrast to just shooting what is. I'd like to begin working with models especially, just to expand my experience somewhat. But.. in good time. I only have one lens so far xD
I am finding it curious, the difference between my favourite photos and yours, dear audience. I'm also noting that almost always, my super wide panoramas don't go over so well and I wonder if it's due to the limitations of viewing them
The AndroidI am very pleased to announce that I'm working on a novel again. It's all here, but essentially, I'm borrowing an idea from Australian author Max Barry, to write a novel in the style of a blog, publishing as I write.
The story so far: Matthias is the first fully functional and self-aware humanoid android. He can and does pass for human. Orphaned by his creator under mysterious circumstances, Matthias plays the role of young, single bachelor with an ordinary job, pretending to be human on a daily basis lest he be discovered and shunned, or captured, or destroyed. Most of all The Android is a novel about being human, but of course, it's a living, public work in progress

People are freakin' insaneI've been a member of deviantART for quite a while (11 years woo). I've never bought in to the game of trading points for views or other schemes that are liable to grant the organiser the greatest number of points. I'd prefer my art to stand on its own merit, I don't need or want fake applause. I'm sure it may be profitable for some.. the more views perhaps the more likely you are to sell a print but hey, I can live without that too.
What really gets me are pages like :iconfiery--aspect:
"I want to distribute love all over deviantART. With these points, I can give back to the community in the form of Premium Memberships or gifts from the shop."
People bought that line to the extent of 7070 points. Really? You know you're unlikely to see those points again, right?

Photography feature - March 2014Hey guys, so I decided to join the crowd on publishing a regular featured set from my favourite photos on dA. These were culled from the most recent 15 pages of my favourites, but in future, I plan to make it a monthly thing.
These are not necessarily recent deviations, just recent discoveries that I find amazing. So, here we go:

Now the only person on MySpaceProbably. That isn't a commercial entity. I like their portfolio system, though. Checkit: https://www.myspace.com/interloperux
AmusedSo, I located a deviation that wouldn't load recently. And I mean, I tried two browsers, refreshed a bunch of times, tried to access the image directly - it wasn't happening. Support tells me the file was lost. Lost XD They lost someone's artwork. I'm amused. It was a piece from 2003, so, I figured maybe it had been an oversight during one of the many updates the site would have had between now and then. Figured I'd do the right thing and let them know. dA: 'There's nothing we can dooo.'
So that's me for this morning. Ttyl
One Photo per Day + Spare PartsHey. So, given an increasing lack of time in which I can get out there and take photos, I'm going to retire my One Photo per Day project. It was fun Took some great images imo, and I've appreciated the favourites and comments on every one.
So, to recap:

The Hunger Games: An Accidental Statement of Protest?
Catching fire by Kris-Kamikakushi
In Bangkok, Thailand, students are being arrested for raising their hands in the air to flash Katniss’ three–finger “freedom” salute.
That’s right, the Katniss who’s the fictional heroine of the popular dystopian sci–fi “Hunger Games” movie series. The world has changed over the last few decades in a very big way, but some are apparently unaware of it or undisturbed by the stunning ramifications.

Who’s the most important person now in the Star Wars franchise? JJ Abrams? Think again!
It begins in mere weeks from now: The countdown to the first of the next Star Wars sequels, Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens, the first of a new trilogy for a new generation. The first 1 minute trailer, a mostly wordless montage of series’ heroes, will debut attached to Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 or on Disney-owned ABC Television. American culture stirs in its sleep.

There is always a reason. A level of insult. An unprovoked assault. A threat of invasion. A refusal to negotiate in good faith. A refusal to compromise. There is always something so unbearable that it must be righted with no more delay and by any means, by even the last means, necessary. That final means is war.
Ever since mankind became able to produce and possess more than necessary for survival, there has been a surplus of resources. It is the treasure that has built our civilization and shaped the special magic and glory of what it is to be a human being.
The struggle for control and division of that treasure sometimes infects men’s minds with a unique

The Little Mermaid
Someday by alicexz
Foreword by techgnotic
Elisa (aka spotted) steps out from behind the scenes as one of our intrepid Today Page senior editors to contribute her appreciation of “The Little Mermaid.” We hope it will be the first of many contributions to come, another hidden talent having been revealed by this longtime DeviantArt special projects manager.
It was 25 years ago that a redheaded mermaid made a splash in theaters ushering in a new era for the identity of the Disney princess.
Collection: The Leonids
The year’s best naturally-occurring light show, the Leonids meteor shower, is due overhead on the nights of November 15 - 20. The passing comet “Tempel-Tuttle” leaves a debris field of meteoroid particles in its wake each year that the Earth will spin through on those nights. Larger “Leonids,” about 10 mm across, have a mass of half a gram and are known for their brightness. The Leonid shower may deposit 13 tons of particles across our planet. The Leonid meteor storm of 1833 may have been the biggest, brightest ever, producing an estimated 240,000 meteoroids entering our atmosphere over 9 hours. Both Nati
