Think Out Loud #110: Akira Nagaya


Hello all!
Welcome to my meme,
Think Out Loud!
The perfect time for you to express yourself!


I found this story at ViralNova.
HERE is the link!
Here is the info copied from that site!

Akira Nagaya, a self-taught Japenese Kirie (literally "cut paper" in Japanese) artist has spent the past 30 years of his life learning one of the most ancient and beautiful arts in the world. 

It requires patience, and brilliance, but most importantly... a willingness to endure years of paper cuts!

But what he creates though is nothing short of the brilliance you'd expect from a true master. 

When Akira first started as a sushi chef over 30 years ago, he first learned the art of delicate paper cutting through food preparation.

He would continue the art of using paper and a utility knife as he enjoyed the work.

Eventually increasing his skill to sheer mastery level.

Later, this 47 year old would eventually open his own restaurant and even decorate the walls with his creations.

It didn't take long for others in the community to discover his work and spread it to the world.

Amazingly enough, TV crews eventually showed up to learn about this amazing art and Akira's work spread even further than he could ever imagine.  “That was the first time I even considered what I had been doing as art,” recalls Nagaya.

If you'd like to see more of Akira's beautiful work, head over to his Facebook page.


Here are examples of Nagaya's art!!








And finally...my favorite!


This is all so amazing and beautiful!!
What talent and skill!

Cover Reveal! Brew by David Estes

Salem’s Revenge strikes without warning or mercy, ravaging the powerless human race under the forces of united gangs of witches, wizards, and warlocks. During the slaughter, Rhett Carter's foster parents and sister are killed, and his best friend and girlfriend are abducted by a gang of witches calling themselves the Necromancers, who deal in the dark magic of raising the dead. Rhett’s sword-wielding neighbor with a mysterious past saves Rhett from becoming another casualty of the massacre and teaches him the skills he needs to survive in this new world.

Rhett is broken, his normal high school life of book blogging and football playing shoved in a witch-apocalyptic blender. The only thing he has left is his burning desire for revenge. Armed with his new witch hunting skills and a loyal, magic powered dog named Hex, he sets out into the unknown with one mission: hunt and destroy those who took away everyone he ever loved.

But Rhett isn’t just a witch hunter; he has secrets of his own that he has yet to discover, secrets that his enemies will stop at nothing to keep him from.

And discovering the truth about himself is the human race’s only hope.

Think Out Loud #109: Hyper-Realistic Art


Hello all!
Welcome to my weekly meme,
Think Out Loud!
Please join in on the fun!
You can post anything you want!!


I think I found this whilst trolling Facebook. LoL
The link to the original story at ViralNova is HERE!
The following is quoted from that article..

"This is the kind of work that will seriously make you second-guess what you're seeing.

Gustavo Silva Nuñez is a hyperrealistic painter. He specializes in creating scenes of people floating, swimming, or even just sitting in water. The level of realism in his paintings is pretty darned amazing, but Nuñez likes to take his art a step further.

When he's finished with his paintings, Nuñez poses with them to create an optical illusion of sorts. The result is that it looks like he's actually interacting with the people on the canvass. It's pretty amazing, and works because his paintings are so realistic. Just check them out."

All of these are so. just... WOW!
This guy is incredibly talented.

Think Out Loud #108: O Captain! My Captain!


Hello everyone.
Welcome to my weekly meme, Think Out Loud.
Use this meme to do whatever you want!


This week, a tragic death occurred that effected me deeply.
Robin Williams lost his battle with depression and committed suicide.
I grew up watching him and he always brought me such joy.
This just proves depression can effect anyone.
I myself struggle with Bi-Polar Disorder with severe depression and anxiety.
Most of the time, I don't even want to get out of bed in the morning.
With my recent change in my psych meds, 
I haven't been doing well and have even been neglecting this blog.
I try so hard to be positive and see the good in things,
but depression is merciless. 
All my love and support go to his family and friends.
This has to be devastating for them. 
Wherever Robin is, I hope he has found some relief from the pain.
Some people say he was "selfish" and others have gone
as far as to call him an outright "coward."
This is wrong and uncalled for, in my opinion.

I will miss you Robin Williams.
