Mine is the Latin word for "truth". I took it because I've decided my life's goal is to find "the truth," even if it is impossible. I can at least try to come damn close to it, in whatever sense I can, and even if it is just my -own- personal truth.

Or, maybe I just stole it from Boondock Saints. ;D
Oh, wtf.

Raffaele the Amigan

I Like that movie! ;010

In Boondock Saints actor Willem Dafoe played a great role character.  ;019

I heard that, too. I have no idea if it's true or not. If they do, I'm hoping it's with the same director..
Oh, wtf.

CaptBrenden

If not.. and its just someone trying to make another bloody sequal to make more money.. Id rather they didnt. Some movies were just so good they should have just stayed one movie.  I think SAW was one of those...  They would have been better off leaving it as it was.

Thurosis

Hmmm.... Thurosis is the name of a character from my first Manga

My first my that i drew is called "The Legend of Valukar"
I drew about 200 pages and it was a mix from "Record of Lodoss War", "Warhammer Fantasy" and a bit "Warhammer 40k" (but i never drew the story until the end)

I for the Story I used a bit from Record of Lodoss War and for the characters I used many things from Warhammer Fantasy (In the Story there is race with many high-tec things so i used the Imperial Army/Guards from W40k.) ;013

Thurosis is the name of a knight in Valukar (a nation with many magician)
but now i used the name for a puppet(maker) master( in Germany ;013) in my newest Manga (the 11th one i think) called "Showdown in Wiesbaden. I never drew/make a new design from Thurosis until now.

here is a link to (my) the user Gallery with some pics from there:

timely

Hi,

My nickname is Timely.

I chose it in honor of Timely Writer, a thoroughbred
racehorse by Staff Writer out of Timely Roman. He
won the Champagne Stakes at Belmont Park as a
two-year-old, defeating Before Dawn and Deputy
Minister, yet was not given an Eclipse Award. He
won the Florida Derby and Flamingo Stakes at
three, but was ill and could not run in the Triple Crown
races. He returned in fine form, winning at Saratoga.
Late in his three-year-old season he broke down in
the Jockey Club Gold Cup while taking the measure
of older handicap horses in grand form. He was humanely
destroyed, and is buried, along with Ruffian, at Belmont.

He was a gutsy little horse, and I made a few bucks
betting on him at Belmont and in Florida, so I thought
I should do something to keep his memory alive.

Cordially,

Timely

I could imagine another system where you can choose in every level between a Windows, a Mac and a third system (for example, a Linux)...

CaptBrenden

Well i had to choose mine since you have the 3.1 ran for such a short time...
