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:

52 Hertz Whale:
Is Anyone Out There?
Each year he makes his migration south from the Aleutian Islands to a breeding area in the Pacific Ocean parallel to Central California, looking for a mate. Unlike other blue and fin whales, his more than 6000 miles a year round-trip swim is a solitary one. He does not travel along with the blues or the fins, because he is neither. He is most probably either a hybrid blu
Strength and Discipline
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. And one person’s life ambition is often another person’s conception of total madness. Context and perspective is everything — as you’ll find illustrated by perusing the following gallery of ima

Was 1979 the most glorious year in world history?
I will give you three compelling arguments for why the answer is yes. For starters, it inspired the best pop–rock song about coming of age ever recorded: The Smashing Pumpkins’s 1979. Second, it is the year that gave us two groundbreaking developments in sci–fi filmmaking: Ridley Scott’s genre

SPOCK by Henry Fong
In a business of massive ego and terrible behavior directed at slicing and dicing their competition, Leonard Nimoy was known as a total gentleman, a class act all the way and a consummate professional at every turn.
For several generations around the globe he will be forever “Mr. Spock,” the half-human, half-Vulcan first office
Fan Art Friday: Muppets
FAN ART FRIDAY: Wocka! Wocka!
The Muppets are celebrating their 60th birthday this year!
Jim Henson created the group of puppets back in 1955 for his first TV show, called “Sam and Friends.” Henson said the term Muppet had emerged from a combination of “marionette” and “puppet.” Henson’s wildly imagined collection of characters has been delighting children and adults with their absurd antics and comedic sketches ever since.

Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci couldn’t stand each other
You might think that the two artists, who both lived in Florence in the late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries, could’ve learned from one another, shared secrets, or otherwise bonded over their mutual passion. Instead, each thought of the other as inferior. An anonymous Florentine author, known

They knew there would be no escaping the security measures of the Arizona “llama ranch” where they were incarcerated, spending their days growing out their woolen coats, greatly valued by hipster trendsetters. They received no benefit from their wool, expropriated with no recompense by their rancher overlords. They were allowed to live so long as the quality of their wool remained high. But there would be n
