Is daylight savings even relevant anymore? or do we just do it because we did it in the past.

We do it so that we can wake up in the dark, miserable hours of the early morning and therefore put us in the right mood for the working day.


I have nothing to say that is at all relevant.

How's it going?
Anyone else on spring break?

In Canada, everyone in education pre-uni/college has March Break, which is this week.
For people in university/college, they have Reading Week, which takes place the third week of February.

I remember we did it during the first and second world wars in order to conserve electricity and fuel by using daylight.
I guess we just got used to it and kept it, for no real reason :(

It keeps us on our toes. I defy anyone to find a more effective way of getting yourself up on a cold spring morning with either the guilt of being an hour late or the drowsiness of being awoken an hour earlier. These are some of the things you need in life to break up the mundane march towards death. Look at it this way, if we didn't have daylight saving what would we talk about at least once every spring and autumn.

Talk about spring and autumn?
Or fuck, the equinoxes? equinoxi? are a hell of a lot more interesting then some arbitrary timezone nonsense that a large handful of countries are already doing away with.

Didn't there use to be an art request forum? Or am I mistaken, that happens more often than you'd think.

The threads were too hard to maintain, and rapidly either became clogged, or ignored. Plus the collabinatorfeature can be used for most requests anyway.

I guess some of us have real lives to attend to, then. Not that I am complaining about anything, it's just that responses take a long to get on here. I think this thread should be more active though...I mean it is the general thread for the art forum.

I would argue that chit-chat between most of the regs tends to take place in Sticklam and its like, since a response is instantaneous, and the lounge is used for other, less throw-away discussions.

Kiwi if you want buttpats you should really consider spending most of your time on deviantart. You get far more comments on your work than you deserve as it is for such a low traffic forum.

DeviantART also lets you edit your posts and submissions. Ahahahaha.

I gave Kiwi's art a snoop and thought it was pretty cool, though since mine looks like rainbow vomit I suppose my palette may not be as exorbitant as some here.


I like to think I can be both a good person, and a high-functioning sociopath.

I don't think my art is "pretty cool". I'm getting there, but I don't feel like I am quite there yet.

Yeah that's pretty much my job, I'm the funny guy who says the funny things.

I don't have anything incredibly funny to say at the moment, sorry.

It was funny, but not for the reason you think it was.

I'm not even sure what was so funny about what I said. I was just being smug.

I'm too tired to even try validating myself. I've been awake, I think, 54 hours now? Gonna hit bed once I'm done typing this post.

Tell me how I'm being quirky and I'll do my best to stop it. If it is happening, I'd like to know because its a behaviour I don't like doing, I like to think I can produce humor that is better than that.

This is a completely new forum for me, all things considered I think I've done fairly well settling in despite my annoyance with the forum features and the art submission form.

So... PSA to the masses. Life sucks, This beer taste like piss, whiskey is better, and some wounds are harder to heal than others.
I'm going to just say fuck all for a bit and mope to my self while I lurk.
don't worry though, this won't be any real different from my usual lurking, I'll just be more pissed with my self rather than simply indifferent.

That is all.

So, I am back, maybe fate conspires to keep me away from the community. But it's pretty amaing for the reasons as to why I left. First, I am developng carpal tunnel. Which is fine in the sense that I now know why Id wake up in the middle of the night (or day actually since I work graveyard I sleep during the day mostly) with my arms feeling like they were on fire and my wrists a smidge swollen. So I had to drop computer usage, my band played less shows and I discontinued drawing.

I started taking better care of my wrists, but I was given more and more hours at work til I was finally doing between 40-60 hours a week, and exhaustion of that caused e to fall asleep at the wheel and wreck one of my cars. amazingly noone was hurt.

Lastly, my band has been gaining a lot of steam to the point where a label requested we record a single for them to shop around to much larger labels.

But, in any event I'm back for now. Til my new laptop or tablet break or my wrist pains become way to intense for typing or drawing. Yuuuuuup.

Hello

I never got my question answered in my art showcase thread. I was wondering if I should censor the more absurd or even disgusting images and link it to somewhere else with a warning? I also wondered what kind of porn would be considered disgusting there are some obvious choices. For example I get a lot of Pokemon commissions mostly of Pokemon with human genitalia, would that be okay? Less often (but still often) I get commissions to draw the person fucking the Pokemon, would it be okay if it didn't show any insertion? Would a ghost dick be okay? (a ghost dick is a dismembered dick that has no body attached to it, a ghost) Would two Pokemon doing each other be okay? Would it be okay if it didn't show any insertion or genitalia at all?

I have the experience that cluttering art forums with shock porn usually is not appreciated so I would want to know what you in the community consider about it. When should I censor?

I also wondered the same about the art portal. I've seen some pretty nasty things up there but still want to ask. What would you want or not want to see up there?

As long as what you're submitting is labeled as what it is, (nsfw) or adult in the portal, you're golden.
If your submitting something to say a contest or just a community activity or something, link to it, I guess? too my knowledge not too many of us really care too much about that kinda thing but there are quite a few younger kids that come to the forums as well.
