The real story behind devART :t::h::e: :f::a::i::r::y: :t::a::l::e:The real story behind devART11 years ago in Personal More Like This
The story of deviantART, as most know it, goes like this. Once upon a time the yellow alien :jark: and a pug were sitting around thinking, hey it would be great to create a massive online art community wouldn't it? And then the yellow alien went off and wrote thousands of lines of alien code, and the pug ran around telling all his friends about this great new art site they had to check out. And when the alien was done coding, he told all his alien friends to come too! Once they'd all arrived, this heavenly new community came about and we all lived happily ever after. Until people started "first posting" and what not. But that's another story.
But not quite.
Actually, there was a lot more to it that couldn't be discussed until now. Like the fact that there were always three deviantART co-founders, not two. That deviantART was wholly owned by DMusic Network, LLC, and then Lynx Technology Group,

Robin Williams, Depression, and a Thank YouI honestly didn’t mean to come back so suddenly, but the news from earlier today just hit home very hard and I felt the need to say something to y’all.Robin Williams, Depression, and a Thank You1 week ago in Personal More Like This
Robin Williams Passes Away
Robin Williams passes away today at the relatively young age of 63. The earliest reports so far seem to confirm that it was a suicide by asphyxiation. He had been battling severe depression for quite some time now, and it seems that it ultimately did him in. Robin Williams was one of the first actors who’s career I began to follow as a kid, owing largely to his involvement in Disney’s Aladdin as the Genie.
I remember a story Stephen Spielberg told about when he was filming Schindler’s List. While over in Germany, Robin Williams would call Stephen up every night to tell him a joke because the story of Schindler’s List was so depressing and difficult to film Stephen needed the pick-me-ups.
It’s incredibly sad that Robin ultimately took his own life lik
Join a SOPA and PIPA debate What are SOPA and PIPA?Join a SOPA and PIPA debate3 years ago in Personal More Like This
The United States Congress is proposing two laws that address the problem of wide-scale unlicensed distribution on the Internet of motion pictures, songs, trademarked goods, and patented pharmaceuticals.
One of the proposals is called SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) and would direct search engines in the United States to block Internet sites outside the United States that are primarily engaged in distributing unlicensed content.Another proposal called PIPA (Protect IP Act) would block websites located in the United States as well.The Obama administration is putting a stop to these proposals. It wants the Internet companies and the content companies to get together and come up with more functional and less destructive solutions.
Idiots:iconl0wlif3furry: is the biggest retard going on the web. He can read this all he wants, but he cannot comment here. He has called me a liar and argued with me one too many times on something he clearly knows nothing about. I correct him on pictures he uploads and labels incorrectly. There are other car enthusiasts here who are watched by me that post work and sometimes see me correct them. They typically show me why I am wrong if it is a foreign car that I am not as familiar with or nod and tell me I did a good job as well as giving thanks.Idiots1 month ago in Personal More Like This
With this guy, each and every time I corrected him, he argued with me. Instead of looking to see if I was right, he just out and out said I was lying and that I was wrong and he'd say that the owner told him what it was every single time. Owners may be car stupid, but they are not nearly as stupid as he thinks they are. Particularly when the information is on fucking Carfax. The plate either matches to the approximate vehicle or

My Robin Williams storySince we're all sharing... MY ROBIN WILLIAMS memory is when I was working at the Disney/MGM studios Animation (Tour/Studio) in Florida and he came down to take a personal tour of our studio. (He was there for an event/publicity/vacation, can't remember). The tour part of our studio had a film called "Back to Neverland" that he was in and it taught how animation was done. It looped over and over all day long. He got a kick out of the fact that we had to hear him yelling and screaming all day long. At one point, I was shooting at the video animation set up and he came over to see what I was doing. I explained it and he couldn't stop looking at the tour of people going through on the other side of the glass. I explained that we looked at them as "moving wallpaper" an tried not to look at them directly. Not Robin. He was on stage and he immediately found a crazy hat to put on and was running around the place. Robin Williams exuded joy and its sad to hear it wasn't always in his heartMy Robin Williams story1 week ago in Personal More Like This
Zhang Jingna, Photographer:icontechgnotic:Zhang Jingna, Photographer3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Zhang Jingna (aka `zemotion) is an internationally renowned photographer and one of deviantART's most popular deviants. She's produced fashion editorials for magazines such as Harper's Bazaar, Elle, and L'Officiel, and her amazingly beautiful photography deviations rank as some of the most viewed pieces on deviantART. We recently caught up with `zemotion and asked what advice she'd offer fellow deviants and young artists.
