A traditional piece I did for an art class last year. I put the colors over it to (hopefully) make it look more interesting. Enjoy~

There’s been a lot of discussion about how Carlos is being kind of irresponsible and selfish by not looking for the Doors… but I’m more inclined to believe that Carlos has been looking for the Doors, and there just aren’t any Doors left to find. So Carlos babbles on about Science instead of admitting this to Cecil, because he can’t bear to worry Cecil with the thought that he might be stuck in the desert forever.
So my close friend Ruggy’s cat was shot with a BB gun! The femur is broken in several places and there is a metal ball in her leg!
He doesn’t want to put her down, and the only two options are to either remove the leg entirely, or put wires in her leg, but either way she’ll be crippled for the rest of her life! :C
I know 2,000$ is a lot, but the cost of the surgery to amputate her leg, the x-rays, and the medicine is what will be covered for this!
Please please, if you guys can help in any way through donations or spreading the word, it would mean a lot!
I love how one of Valjean’s names is Ultime.
Like, it’s his final evolution. Ultime. The ultimate Fauchelevent.
: I have to ask. Anything you can say about Iroh's experiences after Lu Ten's death and before he returned home to the Fire Nation capitol?
Michael Dante DiMartino
: He definitely had a 'walkabout', if you will, where he left the battlefield and had some sort of journey throughout the world after Lu Ten's death and before he returned to the Fire Nation.
: We're seeing Iroh in his golden years, when he's been softened by loss which has changed his perspective on what's important to him and what's important in life. As we've shown and had talked about, he was once aserious
military giant, a very capable general, and he was very fierce. To me he's such an interesting character because a lot of times people find themselves in situations which they happen to be very good at. He was born into this very powerful, aggressive family and just so happened to have a gift and the strength for it. But not all people are just one way, and he certainly had this gentle, kind side which appreciated life, all forms of life, and he could appreciate all cultures. If you look back on the great swordmasters of Asian history, a lot of them were artists, poets, masters of tea ceremony, actors, and the like. So I think when he lost something really near and dear, he went on a spiritual journey. He was lost and that other part of him was calmed. It's not gone, it's just not the most important thing to him anymore.
: So he was a very different man before the death of Lu Ten.
Yeah. He was never a cruel man. But he was very good at what he did, and it was the role he was supposed to play. He went along with it, very successfully.
Mother Dalishia Salter abused her infant son and placed him outside in frigid temperatures. Father David Bryant found his son on the front porch severely beaten and has video proof of him finding his son as he tries to get into the home of ex-girlfriend Dalishia Salters.
Upon coming into the house Mr Bryant says, quote “you hurt my baby” while mother Dalishia Salters is seen and heard in video repeating “Oh well I’ll kill him”. [[VIDEO HERE]]
The Pittsburgh Police have since issued a warrant for Mr Bryant’s arrest because the mother accused him of hurting the baby. Why should David Bryant be jailed for saving his own baby’s life while he has clear video proof he did not harm his baby?
This father and son need justice! [[Petition]]
Police are unaware of video evidence the father posted on facebook

Since 2000, nearly 600 people, many of them young black and Latino men, have been killed by Los Angeles law enforcement officers.
That’s according to a sobering new report from the Los Angeles Youth Justice Coalition, a youth advocacy organization, that looks into the use of lethal force among police.
The report, titled “Don’t Shoot to Kill,” examines homicide data from the Los Angeles County coroner’s department and incorporates details from numerous media reports on specific incidents.
Between Jan. 1, 2000 and August 31, 2014, the report found, law enforcement officers in Los Angeles County used lethal force resulting in the deaths of at least 589 people. That’s almost one death a week, for nearly 14 years.
"If the killing of community residents is one measure of police-community relations," the report reads, "then law enforcement’s fear, distrust and/or aggressive treatment of people –- especially youth and people of color –- have not improved, and may have increased."
From 2000 to 2006, the report says, overall homicides in L.A. County ranged between 1074 and 1231 per year. During that period, officer-involved killings made up between 2.5 and 4.5 percent of that total.
However, since 2007, as overall homicide rates have trended downward — there were 941 total killings in 2007, but only 595 in 2013 — law enforcement use of deadly force resulting in homicide “doubled to between 4 and 8 percent” of the total, the report reads.
The report found that of the 314 people killed between 2007 and 2014, 97 percent were male, a combined 82 percent were black or Latino and 52 percent were under age 30.
"We do know that, by far, the highest numbers [of police killings] are [committed by] county sheriffs and LAPD, with Long Beach and Inglewood leading among smaller cities,"
