Awesome stuff by awesome people!!!
“The idea that an individual in this great country of ours could be arrested for simply posting lyrics to a song is something I never believed could happen in a free society. James Evans was simply posting lyrics to a band he likes on Facebook, and he was locked up for it. The song ‘Class Dismissed (A Hate Primer)’ was written as a view through the eyes of a madman and in no way endorses that kind of fucked up behavior. It was the Virginia Tech massacre perpetrated by Seung-Hui Cho that was the subject and inspiration to write the song, one in which we put the brakes on playing it live after the Sandy Hook shooting, as we did not want to seem insensitive.
As some of us in Exodus are parents, of course these things hit close to home, it's every parent's worst fear. These moments are the stuff of nightmares, and life, as well as music, isn't always pretty. But when we start to overreact to things like lyrics by any band, including Exodus, and start arresting people, we are caving in to paranoia and are well on our way to becoming an Orwellian society.”
What do you guys think? Should have the fan not posted the lyrics at all or should he have not been arrested in the first place?
Hello, deviantArt!. The name's Derek, your average railroad enthusiast/metalhead from West Florida (as of 7/2/12 Kansas City) (And no way in hell am I a foamer!). I have been obsessed with trains since I was about 3 and it has grown from a hobby to working a for a life long career (that's right, working for my degree to become an locomotive engineer!). My obseesion with heavy metal began when I was about 15 and somedays just can't go five minutes without a screeching guitar solo blasting through my speakers.|
I'm not really much of an artist, I'm okay but not great. I usually draw trains or guitars, but lately I've been practicing/drawing some of my favorite cartoons I used to watch as a kid, such as Hey Arnold!, Danny Phantom, Rugrats/All Grown Up, etc, etc. and I'm getting better at it (still need to work on hands though, I always seem to fail on those XD ). Anyway feel free to browse around, comment and favorite.

No flames, period.
And by REQUESTS ARE FOR FRIENDS ONLY, I mean do not watch me just to get one. After I gotten to know you and your art (if you have any at all) after a certain amount of time, then I may consider it.
Also, I may not be the greatest artist out there. This is just a hobby for me during my spare time. But, if you have any criticism to give, whether it be positive or negative, I welcome it. If you like it, you like it. If you think it's complete shit, tell me why to see what I can do to fix/touch up/improve on.
If you happen to see this on a few of my drawings: NOTE: THIS IS A CARTOON. DO NOT LEAVE ANY INAPPROPRIATE COMMENTS OR ASK FOR MORE REALATED WORKS. that is to keep anyone who want to go all Rule 34 on it to stay the fuck off my profile!! I MEAN IT!!!
Just follow the rules and we'll be cool. Alright? Excellent!
