How do we know if we’re in control; that we’re not just making the best of what comes at us and that’s it?…Coke or Pepsi? McDonald’s or Burger King? Hyundai or Honda? It’s all part of the same blur, right? Just out of focus enough; it’s the illusion of choice…If our only choice is BlueCross or BlueShield, what the fuck is the difference?

Look, whether you hate Kishimoto, Sakura, or anything and everything Naruto, I don’t care.  I still find y’all a swell group of people.  Y’know why?  Because you’re not attacking others for liking or disliking a thing.

Within reason of course, it’s not like I go through the tags at all, so there’s an entire side of the fandom I haven’t seen.

Still, of those I see on a daily basis, I can say without a doubt that Naruto has the best fandom ever.  Really, that’s all that matters eh?

Surround yourself with friends, ignore the folks you disagree with, because dabbling in that is just asking for trouble.


El artsita alemán Pierre Schmidt (a.k.a. “Drømsjel”) ha leído demasiado a Nietzche. Y lo refleja en su obra, específicamente los cuestionamientos del filósofo sobre la individualidad y algunos de sus planteaminetos mas radiales sobre la trascendencia humana, como el que dice que “el hombre es algo que debe ser superado”.

Cualquiera que lea demasiado a Nietzche termina volviéndose loco. Por suerte en el mundo del arte eso es positivo, y hasta valioso…

German artist Pierre Schmidt, also known as “Drømsjel” (previously covered here), creates mind-bending imagery that combines illustration and collage techniques. His works are partly inspired by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, who challenged ideas about individuality and the meaning of our existence.

To create these pieces, Drømsjel splices vintage 20th century style photographs with hand-drawn pencil sketches, which he then proceeds to embellish digitally. The result takes us to a surreal version of reality from another time, nostalgic and familiar yet a completely new dimension. Take a look at Drømsjel’s latest works below…

One day, one rhyme- Day 548

Let’s just be ourselves today,
We’ll play it like a game.
Throw the high heeled shoes away
And leave the hair untame.
Forget the cool, stoic grace.
Subtract all the make up.
We’ll take it at our own pace
And fill just our own cup.
Don’t bother hiding feelings
Or trying to use tact,
Today’s for breaking ceilings
Not putting on an act.
Others may see how easy
It is to play our game,
And though this may sound cheesy,
Might want to do the same!

It's pretty glaringly obvious now that the record companies are behind the co which makes sense. A boyband just trying to break the market in 2010/2011 with an out couple? = losing money. A grown up band who have been around for five years who continue to gain fans in 2015 with an out couple? = LOTS of money, a whole new audience AND a way to make the band think about resigning with you because you did something that made them VERY happy.

This is it. This is the post. Yes.
