Biggest Jack Frost Moment in History.So, I decided to go see that "Rise of The Guardians" movie thinking it might be pretty good. I went to see the movie by myself, so when I walked into the theater there is nothing but little kids and their parents as far as the eye can see. I suddenly felt kind of silly for wanting to come see the movie now. As I was walking up the stairs to the top to get a seat I noticed most of the little kids started to stare at me. Ignoring the weird looks of these strange children, I found a empty seat next to an old couple that had brought their granddaughter to see the movie. Looking out over the theater again to see if there was another empty spot, I failed at finding one. I settled in the seat next to the little girl and I had a sick feeling she was going to be one of those kids that talks through the whole movie. I looked down at my pocket and pulled out my pocket watch (yeah, I know I'm a little too old fashion sometimes, call me crazy) and realized I had a good 10 minutes before the movie sBiggest Jack Frost Moment in History.3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Every day people point out the negative things in life. We only see the bad and only the bad. We are afraid of the things that can hurt us, as we should be. But we should also take a moment to realize "I am alive." Just say that to yourself, "I am alive today, i have people around me who love me. I have a pet or a friend that loves me more than i will ever know. I have things in life that make me whole. I have things that keep my mind busy but make me proud."
Do you ever stop and say these things to yourself? Are yo

HOW TO DRAW TITAN CHARACTERS (faces anyways..)HOW TO DRAW TITAN CHARACTERS (faces anyways..)3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I just accidentally uploaded the video.... Here a proper journal about this. Oh god watching this, my voice is strange on video...OH WHO AM I KIDDING it's always been strange...
Click the drawing or click HERE:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yeZHFZ5ruIk&featurelcp to be taken to the video!
So I finally posted something on youtube! And it only took me, what? Almost a year? Yeah sounds about right...
But really the video is to help out anyone who has trouble with drawing the titans. It's just the faces, because if I did bodies too, well it would take up 30 minutes (or more) and I'm sure that is going over board.
It's done traditionally because I own a webcam and I should actually start using it. That and I miss using my mechanical pencil.
Also I'm sorry if they might not look exactly right (I'm a critic to myself ok?) it might be my 'style' trying to take over [hahaha].
Very sorry if my method i
Gentle SnowfallAll right. Awesome story time.Gentle Snowfall3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's been incredibly windy for the past couple of days (it doesn't ever snow, though ). While I was visiting my old house, I took my dog out for a walk up the hill to do his business. It was nighttime. First off, I nearly tripped and fell over what sounded and felt like a long thin tree branch. I looked back and saw nothing. Continuing onward, the wind was blowing pretty hard. It was brisk and exceptionally cold. I began to talk to Jack, knowing that he was behind all of this (as I usually do when a sudden cold wind blows or something along those lines...yeah, I talk to Jack a lot x3). The moment I uttered, "Jack Frost, it's you there, isn't it?" the wind blew so hard that I almost fell over. My dog perked his ears up, but soon went back to doing his own thing. I continued talking to Jack. Then, out of nowhere, my dog starts staring at something up the hill. He's not one to bark unless he knows it's someone/thing dangerous or threatening. Curious but ex

'Twas the night before Christmas, when all through dA,
Not a troll was stirring, nor Grinch in his sleigh.
Deviations were hung in digital Galleries with care,
In hopes that +Favourites soon would be there.
The n00bs were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of Daily Deviations danced in their heads.
And Fella in his 'kerchief, and spyed with his night-light,
Had just settled down to log-off for the night,
When over in the Forums there arose such a clatter,
Fella sprang back online to see what was the matter.
To the browser window he flew like a flash,
Tore open the tabs and refreshed the cache.
When what to his art-loving eyes should appear,
But an animated sleigh and eight commissioned reindeer,
With a little old driver, so creative and slick,
Fella knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than broadband, his reindeer were famed,
After all his favorite art

deviantART and Journal spam: what we're doing!Spam is a constant thorn in the side of every Internet user's daily life. From the mundane to the surreal, these emails appear in our inboxes so frequently, messages from South African attorneys offering $10 million dollars get marked as spam without a second thought to savvy users.deviantART and Journal spam: what we're doing!4 years ago in Personal More Like This
We define spam as the misuse of communication systems to send unsolicited bulk messages indiscriminately to our deviants. Typically, the content of spam messages is aimed at advertising a product that is often counterfeit or potentially malicious. With the rise of social networking, there's been an increase in more direct spamming -- companies who directly target your social network profiles.
"Over the last few years, deviantART has had a small but unfortunate stream of such abuse. Usually, it’s as easy as banning the offending members and moving on to more pressing problems, but recently something happened that caused us to re-evaluate how we handle spam issues."
