About a boy,I could stand here forever alone in this rain
Counting the cloudbursts that fell over me
Arctic, Trickling down my spine.
I had this dream ,
That We faded in.. chasing cranes
Youd count them each time they hit the floor
And just stare as if a part of you had fallen apart.
(Always the Gray ones. )
I would hold your hand so tight, because I was afraid you would Really fall apart.
There we were, standing with fallen cranes.
After a while they turned black;
And Youd fade away.
Id close my eyes and pretend you were still there
See, I could never find you through these tears.
Ive imagined the way you would.
Youd wrap your arms around my mind,
You felt so warm,
Strange and beautiful.
Youd kissed my neck, I kissed your fingertips.
Its The way your eyes smiled, as you fell asleep.
I cant find, Forever in your eyes

Old User SymbolsOkay, I was too used to the old user symbols and I don't like the new icons. So, here's the Greasemonkey usersript for Firefox to turn things back!Old User Symbols2 years ago in Personal More Like This
For it to work you need this extension https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/greasemonkey/
Then go grab the script here http://sokolas.org/da_user_symbols.user.js and install it. Enjoy!
It appears that the old symbols were there, just hidden. I don't know for how long they will remain like that, so it is likely the script will be useless after a while.
Special thanks to bloodrizer for the help!
Update: looks like these new stars were visible for beta testers only when I made this journal. Well, now everyone can enjoy
Armistice Day"You can tell a true war story by the way it never seems to end. Not then, not ever. ~ Tim O'Brien, The Things They CarriedArmistice Day3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I think I said most of what I wanted to say in last year's Armistice Day entry, but I thought, beyond decrying war, beyond the quiet offer of support to the individual soldier, the sad necessity of the army, I wanted to say something about the non-finality of a war.
Tim O'Brien stated it better than I (or anyone really) ever could. Today we're 'celebrating' Armistice Day; the end of the war To End All Wars. Surprisingly, the First World War was not the end of war on this good green earth. It was also, like most wars, never ending in and of itself. An Armistice was signed, yes. Armistices do not stop wars. They certainly do not stop memories.
In a couple of sentences, here is the reason why I do what I do at the DBC: Wars happen. People are greatly and drastically affected. Som
You guys. Guys. Guys. US peeps. Um. (RL stuff)I... follow a lot of US-based political blogs. And have friends out there, and ... find what is currently going absolutely f*cking terrifying and enraging on a visceral bloodboiling level. But, you know. That's just me, out in some secular socialist Old World country, quaffing down my cheap birth control pills and, outrageously, not crippled by hospital bills after my freelance boyfriend's domestic accident of two years ago because of all that damned taxpayer money going into a national health insurance.You guys.

But that, of course, is anecdata and nothing to go forming political opinions on. (Also I have a uterus, and what with all those craaaayzee lady hormones swishing around my weak little brainpan, I'll've completely changed my mind in a week don't mind me!)
Just like to point out, though.
I seem to have a... lot of followers. That's super cool and all. I'm guessing most of you are here for the GND. That's really great and I am so chuffed you are enjoying

Thank you all so much for the tremendous support and positive feedback you have given to two of my favorite creations, Otto and Victoria. i have been asked about them a lot lately so i thought i would do a journal entry to offer a little back story as well as a look forward to what is in store for these two unlikely p
looking back to about a year ago i had doodled a very rough sketch in my sketch book of a girl walking an octopus. and when i say rough i mean rough. the sketch itself was nothing more than a study of contrasting silhouettes. i was drawn to the play between a very rigid character and a squiggly one.
i had forgotten about that sketch until i heard about a steampunk t-shirt design for www.welovefine.com. i thought that this design might have a chance so i went ahead and finished it off. well it got alot of attention and i am happy to say that it won the competition. the shirt started to sell
