My fangirlism might just be rebuked by Loki's colossal Midgard fan-based army after this but whatever. I am merely just one.
I've seen too many comments on hoping for Loki's redemption. That is really sweet. So... so sweet but so, so... unrealistic. Whether anyone reads this entry or not... It really doesn't matter. This is my Journal. My rant. My love. My lust. My thoughts and just... mine alone.
So I start by saying... I love my villains. Just as dearly as I love my isolation and desserts. Them sweeties make my toes curl and my sweet-tooth tingle.
Loki... was created to be one of Thor's arch-enemies and I hope that he will never be redeemed. He might have been intentionally played out to take on the role of an anti-villain in his first movie 'Thor' and an anarchistic anti-villain in his second movie 'The Avengers' but this time... And I'm only saying this based on my assumptions from the new trailer of 'Thor: The Dark World' as revealed at th
Emilie Autumn=AWESOME!Last night was the best night of my life! Emilie Autumn is the greatest singer in the world!!!!! Everything was so beautiful and demented, girl/girl kisses occurred nearly the whole time, funny skits, scary asylum sounds, excellent songs and music...it was a dream come true! Although I didn't get to meet Emilie or get kissed by her or her Bloody Crumpets, I did get to touch Captain Maggots' (one of the Bloody Crumpets) hand as she was crowd surfing! A friend of mine was there...and because she was at the very front, she got kissed by Emilie Autumn! I'm so jealous! At least I got to see Emilie perform though...standing in the same place for hours was totally worth it! I think Emilie even looked at me and smiled when I blew her a kiss Next year, when she comes back to California and I get the VIP passes to meet her, I'm going to give her a special present: my memoir about living with depression and bipolar disorder (after it gets published, of course). I can totally relate to her becaEmilie Autumn=AWESOME!4 years ago in Personal More Like This

deviantART loves you
The most repeating complaints, suggestions and questions we gathered from the community and that we later presented to the dA's $taff were connected with the dA's content and the reporting system.
From what we've seen people are sick and tired of pornography, "art theft" and with how slow everything is dealt with.
In the first part of this journal I'm going to try and explain some things about art, nudity and pornography and then, in a separate section, answer the questions we asked the $taff about the reporting system. I highly recommend you to read the both parts (even though it might be a bit long) as my reasoning might make you think more about the topic and maybe lead to an interesting discussion afterwards.
If you'd like to skip directly to the questions anyway, scroll down to a strip made of this icon :iconmeowscrollplz: and continue reading.

love, sex, and a box of tissuesHow many poems have been written in the name of love? How many stories tell of romance and happily ever after? And there are tales of the heartbreak, too. Abuse.love, sex, and a box of tissues4 years ago in Personal More Like This
How many times have you said it's not worth it? Have you decided love is a fairy tale or you'll never have luck with that kind of stuff?
When you're in a loving relationship with someone it feels so amazing. And then when someone breaks up with you it hurts so bad. Maybe I'll write about it, just for myself.
I'd like to hear what you guys and gals have to say. What do you think about love and sex and relationships?

Question to Fellow Comic Book FansI'm just wondering, when you guys see Comic Book adaptations (Like Watchmen, 300, Sin City, Kick Ass or any Batman Movie) What do you want out of it? I mean do you really want to see whats on the page verbatim? I mean I doubt it that each film adaptation garners enough new readers to matter to be an exact translation. Personally I can't just do it. Watchmen is one of my favorites because of the massive changes and some people hate it others love it. My favorite Comic Book Movie is Superman, Mainly because it mixed his origins and had became fresh. In the original Origin both his parents die, in the later origins neither, the movie brought it done to a more sacraficial level of having him lose one to learn a lesson and i like that, but thats getting off point. My point is do fans really want to just watch the movie and see no changes? do you guys really just feel the material is just so perfect that changing a plot line or adding something new is just wrong? Isn't it boring to you thatQuestion to Fellow Comic Book Fans3 years ago in Personal More Like This
What happened to integrity on dA?What happened to integrity on dA?4 years ago in Personal More Like This
This place has been going downhill for a long time. For every serious artist or passionate amateur that joins, there's 3-4 others that join that post cell phone pics, porn and other non art related pieces. It's irritating. dA used to be the end all, be all of art communities online. Yes, I've been on here a long time and ranted about this before. I realize that numbers and diversity keep the site running, but For Christ's sake, if you want to post nonsensical, candid crap with no artistic thought put in, go join Flickr or some other generic site. Post it on Facebook or another non niche related social network! How hard is this? Where's Admin been for the last few years? Where is their integrity for this place? It used to exist in spades, all across the board! What really pisses me off is the lack understanding on the part of many of these individ

Girl with the Dragon Tattoo review aka AmazingI saw the Girl with the Dragon Tattoo today and I have to say, even though I watched the Swedish version with Noomi Rapace I have to say a few things: WOW, David Fincher is an awesome director!Girl with the Dragon Tattoo review aka Amazing4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now I know there are still some people that don't like it, but it is(At least to me) the final product while the Swedish version is the prototype, Fincher was able to break out of the mold and make an awesome version. This could be the silver lining in the blackened cloud of Hollywood's stagnation. David Fincher, Guillermo Del Toro, Christopher Nolan, Joss Whedon and some others are still here to make movies we can love and call classics.
Okay enough of my opinion! here's what I liked about the movie:
Rooney Mara has blossomed into the actress that she knew she could be! Daniel Craig and Rooney Mara really had that chemistry going on as both Mikael and Lisbeth.
Stellan Skarsgard is always a good bad guy, we all know this, him playing Martin Vanger was a perfect casting choi
Enchanted by the violin [digital art]Music could inspire artists to create brilliant works. There's no matter on genre, vocal or melody.

I'm closing in on 11 years of running deviantART and if there's one thing I know for sure it's that when you guys are right, you're right. And that at dA, ego and our own sense of self worth comes second to how much we care about deviantART and our collective love of what we represent together. Prepare for me to be humiliated.
Before we get started, here's to fulfilling my promise to publishing the deviations made by akreon and vesner to the entire community for all to see, no matter what they were, after we invited them to get an inside look in to deviantART HQ and our operations. and maybe another cuz they're kinda scathing!
Some of you are wondering what the heck I'm talking about. So let's skip to the punch line and then talk about how we got here:

Six Ways to Earn More CommissionsIf you’re serious about earning an income with your art, then you have to be serious about marketing yourself. If you’re like me, you hate selling… you don’t like rejection, it makes you nervous and you think you’re no good at it. That’s why we’re artists and not salesmen. Fortunately marketing yourself is kind of an art form. Although I don’t have all the answers, I’d like to share a little of what I’ve learned about the art of marketing ourselves.Six Ways to Earn More Commissions4 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Be Seen: First, make it easy for people to find you. Create a deviation with a list of the different kinds of commissions you offer, with a sample and a price for each. Put this deviation near the top of your profile so that everyone knows you’re open for commissions. Here’s mine as an example:
