anime - amatsuki - smile - summer

Holy crap.

We've come to a point where a person has gotten arrested for having certain graphic yaoi manga in their book collection.

maderr pointed out the article, which can be found here and Neil Gaiman is quoted over here.

If there is a conviction...what this could mean on a larger, long term scale.

This is just one giant ball of WTF to me.

Active Layout Makers

  1. If I need a layout for comms or anything, I head over to thefulcrum (layouts by grrliz). Most people are familiar with it, but if you somehow managed to miss it, this is the community to friend (or track or add to feeds, lol). Whether it be smooth sailing or bloggish or expressive, the variety of layouts is second to none.

    Layout Picks: 1 | 2 | 3 (just picked from the first page, 'cause there is SO much awesome)

  2. fruitstyle (layouts by malionette) is a favorite out of the newer active layout makers because unlike 99% of them, the comm has layouts on smooth sailing, opal as well as the ubiquitous flexible squares. No sticking to one S2 style.

    Layout Picks: 1 | 2 | 3

  3. spire (layouts by daemon) is another favorite - in this case, I see the layout, go "shiny!" and then notice the username. Also does layouts with a number of s2 styles ^_^

    Layout Picks: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4

  4. minty_peach (layouts by miiiintz) is THE flexisquares layout maker IMO. If you've seen her stuff, then you've probably seen what most FS layouts look like. Insanely popular comm.

    Layout Picks: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5

Single Picks from other active layout makers - who focus on flexible squares and in one or two cases, smooth sailing.

It's worth checking mintyapple and freelayouts periodically to find fresh stuff. There are a lot of layout makers out there.
