It’s always thought provoking when you come across artwork that was created years ago, whether it be by a few decades or a few thousand years. Art, in all its many forms, can tell us so much about the thoughts, feelings, history, and ideology which dominated the time period in which it was created.
I came across a series of futuristic pictures (atpublicdomainreview.org) created by Jean-March Cote and various other artists in 1899, 1900, 1901, and 1910. They were originally in the form of postcards or paper cards enclosed in cigarette boxes. The images depict the world as it was imagined it would be like in the year 2000.
These pictures were created in a time well before the introduction of high tech machinery, the industrial revolution, or flying contraptions. The world was clean, and human impact on the environment and our own health was minimal. In the past 100 years alone, the way we’ve ‘progressed’ has harmed our planet and all life on it. A time for change is long overdue, and I’m sure if you asked some artists to depict what the human experience will be like 100 years from now, it wouldn’t be so pretty.
100 years has flown by at a rapid pace, and our exponential technological development in all areas seems to have been missing an appropriate level of consciousness to go with it. As a result, our planet continues to be destroyed. But there is still time to turn it around, and it seems things are headed in a better direction. At least from my vantage point, working in this area for a number of years now, the amount of progress we’ve made is truly remarkable. From awareness to action, we have indeed been taking steps in the right direction, but we still have a long way to go.
What would you paint? How do you imagine the world 100 years from now?
After all this time, i've seen peoples come and go (I miss some?)... I've had absences-in which i thought i would quit forever- and moments that lasted days... At this moment i feel old, even though i'm only 19... Happy late Vine birthday to me, eh.
The desire of Independance does not date from yesterday, when we look back in time we can see New-Frenchs resistance, 1838 Patriotes, 1980 and 1995 referendum... So i decided to make a top 100 songs in their honor.
When Québécois think about indépendance they immediatly think about Gilles Vigneault who created the unofficial national anthem (And a few other Indépendantiste songs) but here we got a list, a commun effort to show the world our colors in which we find all kind of music genres (From Rap to Pop) I wish you guys could speak french so you could understand us...
Olafur Ragnar Grimmson (The President of Iceland which is pictured with the Premier of Québec) came to Québec to be part of the symposium on northern development, he was asked his opinion on independance and he answered:«The Independance itself can never be negative, because independance is not just a formality and it is determinated by the people».
Note:He's not the first president to talk in favor of independance, Québécois can surely remember De Gaulle Speech and the famous ''Vive le Québec libre''.
Second Note:Back in 2014 the liberal (Couillard), was asked Could Québec survive financially if separated? and he answered <<Yes, sure, Québec has the capacities to be...
Third Note:October 30, 2015 will mark the 20th anniversary of the contreversed referendum won by the no camp at 0,58%/54 228votes.
To begin with i didnt know it was her birthday until about 18h00 eastern time and then my internet crashed -_-... But i wanted to make this anyway (To Celebrate her birthday duh). In the end this is a almost belated birthday!

I wanted to start reading on a regular base, i took the first book in my parents library and its was Les Chevaliers d'Émeraude. I've read the first 20 pages but i've stopped. At the time i was too lazy to read a whole book... Later on (the same year), i went to a library and i started to read A.N.G.E. . I loved it, i mean a devil getting his ass w00p3d by a Holy Reptilian is not something you can ignore xD! I really wanted to start reading on a regular base so i came back to Les Chevaliers d'Émeraude once i was done with the first tome of A.N.G.E. and i found out that i was also liking this universe. I found the whole serie of 12 books interesting even though some were less attractive than others. I still havent finished the Heirs of Enkidiev since well... the serie is not over xD (2 more To come). Now i'm not claiming i'm her biggest fan because i dont really find Les Cordes de Cristal interesting at all but so far i've liked the majority of her works.
Happy Birthday :D.
I hope you will write a few other books and a new serie. Your fans loves ya, take care.
