LONDON 2012 + FINE ART FEATURESHello everyone!!LONDON 2012 + FINE ART FEATURES3 years ago in Personal More Like This
How are you doing there?? I am so excited!! On Saturday the 30th I am going to fly to LONDON!!! Oh yeah, I am already looking forward to it. I think I am going to be there for a month or two, I've always dreamt to do this experience and I am totally eager to get there. As on Saturday the 30th there will be also the amazing DeviantMeet in London I do really hope I will be able to join all those who are going to take part to the event, if so I am double excited and I can't wait to get to know all of you guys ^^
They say people have not much time to read, therefore I quit with the boring part (lool) and let's do some features though!! I've always done (mostly) photography features, but recently I started to appreciate also the incredible amount of fine art pieces that some world-beating artists shared on this wonderful platform. I think it's the same for a musician, don't you think? If you like to play Chopin you simply CAN'T play his music all life l
Contest: End rhyme to end all rhymeA HammeredPoetry Prompt-ContestContest: End rhyme to end all rhyme3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This contest is now open! Please submit your entries to the group gallery 5 End rhyme to end all rhyme.
Rhyming poetry is unfashionable. Unless you want to come across as either comic or childish, end rhyme is old news. If you’ve tried rhyme recently you might have found that the only way to take yourself seriously is to write a medieval ballad or a Shakespearean sonnet about ancient knights or Elizabethan love. Either way you end up sounding trite.
But we don’t want to let rhyme languish. We want rhyme in our poetic toolkit, as acceptable as alliteration, as valid as assonance. So here’s the deal:
• Write a poem which uses end rhyme.
• Use whatever poetic form you choose.
Feel free to make one up. Feel free to ignore metre altogether or use an irregular rhyme scheme.

The Used Furniture Review are now accepting submissions, and are also in the process of looking for some new columnists. Now bear with me here, I know it sounds like I'm sending you to write for a niche magazine about futons, but they're an online only literature magazine that features a plethora of writing, including Kate Eisenberg's Famous Battle Cries column.
The webzine can be found here, with a handy top bar for navigation so you can see what kind of thing they have available to you.
There is no deadline for submission or columnist applications, all they're looking for is, well, everything. From the columnist side of things, they're looking for:

Friend zone sonnet.Depression sucks. A lot. Mixing it with teen angst apparently produces a sonnet.Friend zone sonnet.4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I couldn't sleep because this was stuck in my head.
Once long ago, I felt my own true love
How others would taunt it, we denied it
I denied denial, put her above
my daily needs, wishing fates to collide
We had shared a childhood, made a bond
Nobody could break it, forever friends
Friends, all it was, I had grown much too fond
She knew of it, led me beyond amends
I followed too far and got my heart crushed
A catastrophe ending on thin ice
Holding friendship at least, ordeal hushed
Life's presented more, but each with no dice
Withering confidence, hope is waning
Future is dark, no one is remaining
Sorry I haven't updated in a while, haven't really done anything DA-relevant.

Make sure you the news article!
So you've written something freaking awesome. You've edited a million times (and if you haven't, turn around and go do that. Right now). You think you maybe want to take the leap and try publishing something. But you have no idea where to start.
Well, this is a good place to be.
This the journal where I'll be keeping a running list of all the publishing resources I find, both on and off dA. Most of it will probably be related to literary journals, since that's the stage where I'm at in my literary career, but I'll add things about book publishing as I find them.
If you ever find a great resource, or if you'd like to request something specific, please leave me a note in the comments.

Saturday mornings are super again. Harkening back to the glory days the 1970s and '80s when kids got their weekends going with Super Friends and School House Rock, Cartoon Network is launching DC Nation, a programming block that showcases the heroes of the DC Comics library. Anchoring the hour will be the CGI show Green Lantern: The Animated Series (10am/9c) and the continuation of the first season of Young Justice (10:30am/9:30c). Scattered Throughout the hour are animated shorts and interstitials with news and vignettes from around the DC universe.
Though some of the shorts feature big names like Superman and Batman, many will put the spotlight on "characters we've always wanted to see animated, but that might not be able to support a whole series," says Peter Giardi, senior vice president at Warner Bros. Animation, which is coordinating the block. Among the second-tier characters featured are Black Lightenin

Look, at the end of the day, this site provides a service. You can choose to pay for it, or you can choose to not pay for it. It works either way. If you really don't like it, not only should you not pay for it, but don't use it. No one is forcing you to.
It seems like a lot of people seem to think that being a member of this site gives them ownership of it. It doesn't. Be grateful it exists. Be happy that it is (now) profitable. For a long time it wasn't. The people who work on it deserve to make some money - they work hard.
If you don't agree with any of this, I think you're lacking in perspective. There's nothing keeping you here if you don't want to be. I think DA does a great job of listening to a vast community and trying to make changes to please it's members. It can't be incredibly dynamic and flexible to accomodate e

I prefaced a recent article Eye See Therefore Eye Am,
with a quote from Roy Batty, the doomed replicant (android) who was given human emotions to be able to appreciate
all the wonders of life, including the visual, but afforded only four years of

The Muse AbidesAsk any artist about “emptiness” and they’ll tell you about the constant recurring nightmarish emptiness they must face down almost every day as a part of their vocation: the blank space that they must fill. Whether he’s a painter facing a blank canvas or she’s a poet facing a blank computer screen, the blank space awaiting transformation at the hand of the artist can be the loneliest and cruelest place on earth.The Muse Abides3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This

Why I disagree with Kony 2012Many on here and on Facebook have messaged me about the Kony 2012 movie. It's very well-made and definitely worth a watch if you haven't seen it yet.Why I disagree with Kony 20123 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Kony is a terrible criminal, and I am very much for bringing him to justice. However, I do not share the enthusiasm of the overwhelming majority about the movie and the proposals put forward by the makers. Here are ten criticisms I came up with, in no particular order.
1) If something is being hyped up all around you, this is a strong signal to think for yourself. Be especially suspicious when someone wants to use FORCE to do GOOD. Paradoxically, if you REALLY care - don't fall for appeal to emotion, as is being done here. Consider the implications and outcomes, rather than the motives. Don't let the public opinion shape yours, let the facts do so. Don't let one issue overshadow other issues which could be more important. Don't be afraid to disagree with the majority. Truth i

“Sometimes we lay aside our own troubles when we wipe away another's tears.”
Is no longer alone
his life is not easy; a winding, sometimes whimsical, sometimes tragic journey that ultimately finds terminus in the same common destination for each of us. No matter the brave, fierce constructs we build and serve that would have us believe we are each one of us all alone as we make this journey, we make our way toward the end of all things side-by-side in our community of the living each day defying death. Our paths may be wildly divergent—the way of the hungry and impoverished traveling the same timeline with the grotesquely indulgent, the very best of us side-by-side with the most evil of us; but all headed for the same fate: dust.

Those persistent enough to deny the pull, push onto high flight, Into the vaporous azure beyond all other birds,
Beyond all other basely wing'ed wit, willfully woed in bastions of tethered will,
Unto the exquisite elucidating solace atop the horizon.
Defiant little dreams they are, with lung'ed wings ever-pumping in denial of retreat, spiting the heavens' threat - My admiration is won.
And in dying to respire the thinner, grimmer reprieve of an abyssal serenity, the tiny gods climb into a transcen-Dance to the harmonious score of eternity - My tangled furrows burn in light of that sun,
But to feel it I must. Heavy souls, I understand now how you overcome the weight of your hearts.

Long story short, I need to rise some money asap. I know asking for money is kinda lame,
but I think I figured a way to do that fairly.
Remember my pokemon project? (this one)
I know a lot of you like it and want me to continue, and I want to, but let's face it, it's just getting dust...
So, that's the deal, I want to revive the project and you'll help me do it!
How? well, that's when the money part enters.
Each 5 bucks I recieve, I'll make a new pokemon!
And you may choose the one you'd like for me to do!
Some other examples:
- Send me a note so I can send my paypal adress and we'll talk further!
- In the note, say if you want to show in the list of donors and what pokemon you want to pick or if you want it to be random, click here to see which ones are available.
