HiddenThis is a true story.Hidden2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I had just entered a treasure-trove. It was a tantalizing world, hidden from view from the rest of the world. My jaw dropped in disbelief
"Take what you like, young man," said the sweet little old lady who stood by my side, garage door clicker in hand. She was a neighbor and had invited me to her home in our sleepy suburban neighborhood because she had, in her words, "a few art-supplies to give away,"
So here I stood, in her garage, which was filled with what appeared to be literally thousands of paintings, stacked tightly in bundles from floor to ceiling.
"These were my husband's paintings", she explained." Maybe you could paint over them and re-use them."
"What? Paint over them?" I asked in horror. "What are you saying? Don't you want your husband's paintings?" The sweet old lady shrugged and shook her head, in a sad, quiet way. "What can I do with these?" She responded. What you don't take today, the trash peopl
GTK theme preferences - Customize GTK themesCustomizing a GTK theme can be frustrating, especially with both GTK2 and GTK3 themes lying there. And why go through all the hassle when you want to change just few things. You no more have to!

The group is growing quite huge & it is great ....but each month it gets more difficult to make the promotion alone ... but I am doing it, so if it takes a bit longer to add the art promoting contest, it is because of this ... (& also because of the wrong submitted images), so if some of you missed the "How & where to submit" page, here it is -> http://femaleexcellence.deviantart.com/journal/How-amp-where-to-submit-335649921

A Saturday SurpriseAlright, let me set this up the right way.A Saturday Surprise1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Saturday was my girlfriend's little brother's birthday party. Because her little brother is just a few years older than the Princess, I figured we'd take her along and let her meet some new kids and make friends. She LOVED the idea and begged her mom to let us take her. Of course, her mom had NO PROBLEM with me taking the Princess off her hands for a few hours.
So I get up Saturday (more like roll off the bed and crawl to my desk) and run the Write In chat I had scheduled, then took a quick shower, got dressed and picked up the Princess and then my girlfriend. I was originally not gonna drive, but at the last minute, I decided to anyway.
Now, we're on the highway in my Jeep. The Princess has her iPod and notebook in the back seat, and we're chit chatting up front. I'm paying attention to the road (obviously, I'm driving!), but not really looking at the vehicles we're passing.
When all of a sudden, the Prince

If with the rest I feel compelled
to try and write a villanelle,
spill my ink and break my pen
and do not let me try again.
And if like Keats I crave an ode
on Grecian urns or autumn roads,
break my fingers, steal my pen
and never let me write again.
With meter and with rhyming verse
I try to dress my humble words,
arranging them into sestinas,
change epigrams to terza-rimas.
And if I think I have the skill
to pen another kyrielle
come and smash this laptop screen
and never let my words be seen.

The Greatest Experiment in Capitalism: AnalyzedWhat gives the government the right to forcibly redistribute wealth from the rich to fulfill the needs of the poor?The Greatest Experiment in Capitalism: Analyzed2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
The above seems to be the battle cry of many free market idealists, which inspired me to write this article. Surprisingly, many people who offer this contention aren't rich, and are unwitting beneficiaries of government control.
My initial thought was a bit cheeky. The middle class is currently paying about 50% of their income in taxes, while the rich pay about 15%. The rich buy politicians to keep it this way. What gives a rich person the right to steal from the middle class not for their needs but for sport?
Although there is a lot of truth to that, it's still important to address the main point: the aversion to the government using force to redistribute wealth. This sounds good in concept, and if you keep it in abstract terms it's hard to disagree with it. However, the supe
