Thrice ~ The Artist in the Ambulance

LATE NIGHT

BRAKES LOCKED

HEAR THE TIRES SQUEAL

RED LIGHT -- CAN'T STOP

SO I SPIN THE WHEEL

My world goes black before I feel an angel lift me up
and I open bloodshot eyes into fluorescent white
they flip the siren, hit the lights, close the doors and I am gone

Now I lay here owing my life to a stranger
and I realize that empty words are not enough
I'm left here with the question of just
what have I to show except the promises I never kept?
I lie here shaking on this bed, under the weight of my regrets

Look around and you'll see that at times it feels like no one really cares
it gets me down but I'm still gonna try to do what's right, I know that there's
a difference between sleight of hand, and giving everything you have
there's a line drawn in the sand, I'm working up the will to cross it and

I hope that I will never let you down
I know that this can be more than just flashing lights and sound

My world goes black before I feel an angel steal me from the
greedy jaws of death and chance, and pull me in with steady hands

They've given me a second chance, the artist in the ambulance

Wraths of unholy screams play in my mind
The video plays no more as it starts to rewind
The darkness consuming the once bright light
Even though it feels good, I know itís wrong
No more humming whatever was that song
Thereís no more time to impatiently wait
Finally I can warmly feel the infinite hate
What ever is true, Iíve known not to be right
Feeling the ripping of what was my flesh
Dropping the steel and hearing the thundering pause
River like blood runs down my body with a cause
To end whateverís left in this lifeís mesh
Blood stains on the floor near a steel knife
And a body of oneís most painful life
This sonnet puts and end to my Trilogy.

When I came by frozenfragrance's beautiful photomanipulations the other day, I fell in love. In particular, a few of them sparked words in my mind. She allowed me to use some of her artwork to create some visual poetry. So credit goes to her for the actual photomanipulation, whereas I wrote the poem. This is the second one.

Text Only Version:
A Thousand Paper CranesAs I lay down to rest,
my wishes of hope take flight on the
wings of a thousand paper cranes
I’ll live now forever more.

Basic codes for CSS journal

Ok I don’t have any examples (except for my journal) but if you fallow what I say it’s really easy!!

Ok First,
Copy and past this into the space in your journal labeled "add CSS"! I will break it up into sections and help you fill it out!

.journalbox {
border-color: #------;
border-style:------;
background-color: #------;
color: #------;
font-family: -----;
font-size:--px;
text-align: ----;
}
.journaltop {
background-image:url(---------------------);
background-position:----------;
background-repeat: -----------;
color:#------;
font-family: ------;
font-size:--px;
text-align: ------;
padding-top: ------px;
}
.journaltop h2 {
background-color: #------; or
color:#------;
font-family: ------;
font-size:--px;
text-align: ------;
}
.journalbox .list {
background-color: #------;
color: #------;
font-family: ------;
font-size:--px;
text-align: ------;
}
.journaltext a:link {
color:#------;
font-family: ------;
font-size:--px;
}
.journaltext a:link {
color:#------;
font-family: ------;
font-size:--px;
}
.journaltext a:visited {
color: #------;
font-family: ------;
font-size:--px;
}
.journaltext a:active {
color: #------;
font-family: ------;
font-size:--px;
}
.journaltext a:hover {
color: #------;
font-family: ------;
font-size:--px;
}

.................................................
Notes:
American spelling only
Color= text color
Font-family= font style
Font-size= font size
Text-align= center, align left/right
You can choose whatever colors fonts you want.

……………………………………………..

Lets start with (Journal box) the section witch pretty much controls the entire journal:

.journalbox {
border-color: #------;
border-style:------;
background-color: #------;
color: #------;
font-family: -----;
font-size:--px;
text-align: ----;
}

Ok how you fill all that in. (remember in yours there should be no spaces)

border-color: #------;
This is the border of the journal.
Here we will use a hex code (color code) such as #000000 = the color code for black. You can find all the colors of the rainbow here www.december.com/html/spec/col…. You will use these color codes in every place that requires color. Example with black:
border-color: #000000;

border-style:------;
This is the style of the border. (This line is optional and can be left out.)
You can fill in the blank area with one of the following:

solid
double
groove
dashed
inset
outset
ridge
hidden

Example using solid:
border-style: solid;

background-color: #------;
Like it says it’s the background color of your journal  
Example with a white background:
background-color: #FFFFFF;

color: #------;
Hers the color of the journal's text
Example using black:
color: #000000;

font-family: -----;
Determines the font.
I recommend using the basic fonts because if someone viewing your journal does not have the fonts you have installed, the browser will select it's own default font:
Basic fonts:
Times
Vendera
Comic Sans MS

Example using Comic Sans MS:
font-family: ComicSansMS;

font-size:--px;
Determines the size of the font.
12px is considered an acceptable size.
Example with 12px:
font-size: 12px;

text-align: ----;
Determines the alignment of the text.
You can choose which ever setting you like: center, left, right or justify.
Example with center:
text-align: center;

You’re done with the first step the foundation it should look something like this:

.journalbox {
border-color: #000000;
border-style: solid;
background-color: #FFFFFF;
color: #000000;
font-family: ComicSansMS;
font-size: 12px;
text-align: center;
}

……………………………………………..

.journaltop {
background-image:url(---------------------);
background-position:----------;
background-repeat: -----------;
color:#------;
font-family: ------;
font-size:--px;
text-align: ------;
padding-top: ------px;
}


Moving on "journaltop” refers to the very top of the journal (the date and graphic)

background-image:url(---------------------);
Controls the image at the top of the journal.
I recommend using an image of about 900px wide by 250px high. After creating the image you would like to use upload it to a file server. I used Photobucket cause it’s easy!
Copy and past the URL provide to the space between the (…)
Example with my image:
background-image:url(i77.photobucket.com/albums/j63…);

background-position:----------;
This is simply the placement of the image.
You can use: top center, top left or top right.
I have chosen "top left", so the line will look like this:
background-position: top left;

background-repeat: -----------;
Controls whether the image is tiled throughout the journal. I only want it on the top so I’ll use "no-repeat". Example:
background-repeat: no-repeat;

color:#------;
font-family: ------;
font-size:--px;
text-align: ------;
This is the same as before just fill it in the same as before, unless you would like to use a different color than the mane journal.

padding-top: ------px;
Determines where the date is. I just used 200px the date and heading usually sit at the very top of the journal. This line of code brings it down. Example:
padding-top: 200px;

You’re all done with part 2, It should look similar to this:

.journaltop {
background-image:url (i77.photobucket.com/albums/j63…);
background-position: top left;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
color:#000000;
font-family: ComicSansMS;
font-size: 12px;
text-align: center;
padding-top: 200px;
}

……………………………………………..


.journaltop h2 {
background-color: #------; or
color:#------;
font-family: ------;
font-size:--px;
text-align: ------;
}

This section of code controls the title of your journal

background-color: #------;
Instead of using a color here, I used "transparent" Because I wanted my background image to be seen. Example:
background-color: transparent;

I got lazy and so this is what my code looked like if you want throw you can change the color and font the same as before

My finished code:
.journaltop h2 {
background-color: transparent;
}

……………………………………………..

.journalbox .list {
background-color: #------;
color: #------;
font-family: ------;
font-size:--px;
text-align: ------;
}

.journalbox .list .a {
background-color:#------;
color:#------;
font-family: ------;
font-size:--px;
text-align: ------;
}

These 2 sections of code control the "moods" area of your journal.  

All you have to do is fill it in, I just assumed that each section did as it was labeled
Example:
Color= text color
Font-family= font style
Font-size= font size
Text-align= center, align left/right

.journalbox .list {
background-color:#ffffff;
color:#000000;
font-family: verdana;
font-size:12px;
text-align: center;
}

.journalbox .list .a{
background-color:#000000;
color:#ffffff;
font-family: verdana;
font-size:10px;
text-align: center;
}

I left this out on my journal.

……………………………………………..

.journaltext a:link {
color:#------;
font-family: ------;
font-size:--px;
}

This section determines how the links will look in the body area of your journal.

I chose firebrick red as the color its code = (:#CD0000). The font family and size should be the same as your regular text which we coded in the very first section (.journalbox). You can change them if you want.

Example:

a. link

.journaltext a:link {
color: #CD0000;
font-family: ComicSansMS;
font-size: 12px;
}

Now we move on to how the link will look when you click on it or hover over it, etc.
b: visited

.journaltext a:visited {
color: #------;
font-family: ------;
font-size:--px;
}

c: active
A link becomes active once you click on it.

.journaltext a:active {
color: #------;
font-family: ------;
font-size:--px;
}

d:hover

.journaltext a:hover {
color: #------;
font-family: ------;
font-size:--px;
}

These 4 sections need to go in this order.
a:link
b:visited
c:active
d:hover

Once you have filled in all the blanks, the section should look like this:

.journaltext a: link {
color: #CD0000;
font-family: ComicSansMS;
font-size: 12px;
}
.journaltext a: visited {
color: #FFE303;
font-family: ComicSansMS;
font-size: 12px;
}

.journaltext a: active {
color: #000000;
font-family: ComicSansMS;
font-size:12px;
}
.journaltext a: hover {
color:  #000000;
font-family: ComicSansMS;
font-size: 12px;
}

……………………………………………..

And now you are done. It’s not the most elaborate thing in the world but it gets your journal looking nice.

Example of my finished CSS code:

.journalbox {
border-color: #000000;
border-style: solid;
background-color: #FFFFFF;
color: #000000;
font-family: ComicSansMS;
font-size: 12px;
text-align: center;
}
.journaltop {
background-image:url (i77.photobucket.com/albums/j63…);
background-position: top left;
background-repeat: no-repeat;
color: #000000;
font-family: ComicSansMS;
font-size: 12px;
text-align: center;
padding-top: 200px;
}
.journaltop h2 {
background-color: transparent;
}
.journaltext a:link {
color: #CD0000;
font-family: ComicSansMS;
font-size: 12px;
}
.journaltext a: visited {
color: #FFE303;
font-family: ComicSansMS;
font-size: 12px;
}

.journaltext a: active {
color: #000000;
font-family: ComicSansMS;
font-size: 12px;
}
.journaltext a: hover {
color:  #000000;
font-family: ComicSansMS;
font-size: 12px;
}

I hope this helped… If I can figure out more tricks Ill make another lol!!!
Edit:
Alright guys, I'm really sorry but please stop asking me to code your journals. I'd like to help and I'll answer any questions you may have to the best of my ability but I don't have time to create and code journals for every person that asks.

. . . . . . . . . . . .

Extras:
:bulletblue: Color codes [link]
:bulletblue: Upload bg images [link]

I finally figured out how to code a css journal, and in my excitement on how easy it was to do I made a tutorial lol

This thing really angered me because it was impossible to find someone to help me. Everyone wanted me to download theirs or something and I'm not big on downloading things from the net. After hours of research I was able to pull together a very simple journal, I'm very excited :XD:

Not (c) to me cause I didn't create css

sorry for the category it would not let me upload to tutorials cause its not a JPEG, PNG, or SWF damn DA

We were born kings and queens
Grey castles and green gardens welcomed us
We had to live up to fulfill our dreams
We were people without the past
And we had no idea who had been pulling our strings


Gentlemen were flattering, ladies were delicate
We didn’t remember our first affairs
And just when jealous lovers wanted to have us suffocated
We weren’t normal people like all of you
Subjects were looking at future kings and queens
And we’ll rule above you too
But we couldn’t find any happiness though


They tore us apart from each other
Different politics, cultures, princes and princesses
We all were bounded to another
And our nights were dreamless
Because no one could find glee
We were asking ourselves, why me?
Father was never smiling, but he said one thing
Other things matter, now you will see


Many years later we wanted a meeting
Torn apart as pawns on a chequer
We didn’t care that the war was hitting
We wanted to see each other
To say goodbye, farewell, sisters and brothers
All our lives we were set on thrones like royal somebodies
We didn’t hear our father
He said clearly we were nobodies
And none of us had a mother


We were born kings and queens
And we couldn’t have our own dreams
I was in a mood for it so... here you are :)

Unforgettable



When clouds begin to swallow up the storm
And dreams are slowly fading away
Chasing butterflies doesn't soothe my sorrow
Then I know it's the end of another day


Show me myself from the old days
Erase my memories
Take me to our old place


Time has passed in a wink of an eye
There is no laughter, no holding hands
I remember us running in April and sunny May
Fearless glee sealed with tears


Help me regain my stolen pieces
Show me exactly when I have fallen
Let's once again be fearless


My old friend
We're walking again together hand in hand
Let's make this last embrace slightly stronger
Final goodbyes are at least unforgettable
During the last few days I've got so much afflatus to write something that I started writing some poetry. And thereupon... This is one of my pieces.
I'm not sure if it's a poem or just future song's lyrics. I'll see if it turns out useful in the future :)

The meaning behind it can be variously interpreted. It tells a story of longing of two people, probably friends (or lovers) who somehow had been separated ( maybe involving even being forbidden to talk to each other). The taleteller is one of them.
He (or she) tells us shortly about the present, which is weary, sad and soon begins to mention the past - as opposed to present, those few memories are bright and carefree.
At the end we can presume that the two finally meet and getting prepared to the final goodbye, which is unavoidable.

Everybody can construes it differently. By dint of my huge inspiration you can expect some more in time :D But now I have to attend my two other stories! I'm hopin' you like it.

Afternoon embraced the day with a scream
The child was born, the eyes were seen
The white sun was chasing her across white room
Whiter that anything she had ever seen


Dance of floating needles
Tearing apart the soul
The innocence should burn


Cancer's time is from June to July
Sign of frozen fears
Melted within months that were passing by
None of that came to her ears
Living in the world of glass
The white walls were there again
To suck the life from the dead
Dead of the inside is the worst thing


Time changes the living even harder than life
Child is hidden in every one of us
Sir, where do you go, may I ask?
To the edge of imagination and painless dust
The intro has just ended
The rest's awaiting behind brazen doors
Come and see it, if you must


She walked alone to the stairs
Leading fearless dreams in cage
Oh, yes, she will release them free
Freedom is what she valued the most
Find the music a place to be


Black sheet lying on the floor
As dark as gloomy nights in December
The walls were no longer white
The fire was consuming her heart
Streaking back from shadows of the mind


Little girl no longer walks alone on the streets full of colours
Trust and care entered her world
From friendship and freedom
That she valued the most


Sound of the piano covered her ears
Singing pure notes behind the instrument
Memory can be as tricky as clever
Leading us to music's tent
And taking memories as a reward


Blindness
Devotion
Happiness
Creation


Empty words declared on paper
Endless war between conscience and pure heart


Where she stood was dark and cold
But she would have loved it
If she could see deeper into her own mind
Childhood was long ago
Still the song goes on and on


Hearts made of stones
Bowing down before hatred and emptiness
How long does it take to get to the sweetest bones?


Changes


Long hair was blown by the winter wind
Grey lace covered our sins
She walked away
Alone she was
And the passion filled almost two thousand pages
Sending them to eternity


Wearing the mask will become tiring
Taking it off will be a hard trial
Trial which everyone are failing
A saint needs a sinner as a blind needs the Braille


Being rejected by the closest ones
Makes every success tasteless


She remembers every fall and every victory
People who were there for her
People who failed the trial and walked away
As to the sorrow bound is the humanity
Conquer, reject and slay


Empty words declared on paper
Endless war between conscience and pure heart


One step higher
Slowly, carefully
The beauty that frail is
Stabbed us painfully


Selfishness is the only thing that she couldn't defeat
'Cause it was near her every day
Getting closer and closer
Nice when they want more
Bitter when they can't take more
And couldn't you even hear her out?
Let's once again be fearless


She'll take what's her by justice
Years of trying
Is anyone buying
The Illusion
Made in order to be free?


She is me, so
Set me free
Here comes the morning sun
She will reach out for thee
And we'll be cast away and we'll run


The Art of Letting Go
The most personal poem/song I have ever written. This particular one is about me - going through my childhood, then to teenage years and finally to where I am now. It's not so hard to interpretate if someone knows me quite well and has ever been paying attention to what I was saying. It's inspired by idea of the Nightwish movie 'Imaginaerum' which I watched yesterday with my friend and one particular song - 'Song of myself'. My journey is not over yet but I wanted to have older things written down.
Tell me what you think. Enjoy and thanks for paying attention :)

This is for the person who said the poem in my journal wasn't artistic enough!



This poem expresses me as a person! It is my deepest, most profound piece of work that I believe I've ever some up with!

Oh and I drew the shitty pixel shit too.

i'm not slow
i'm not dumb
i'm not broken.

each day i grow
i understand
i pray.

understanding is difficult
hearing is impossible
speaking is invisible.

I learn to speak
I learn to listen
I learn to hear.

no matter how many times
I repeat.

the tears in my eyes
the shake within my body
i cry.

to understand one
you have to know
another.

i'm not slow
i'm not dumb
i'm not broken.

though i'm human
