Not everyone can afford to buy it, and not everyone is interested, but she would be super appreciative if we could come together as a community to get the word out about her book! Check it out!

*gasp* CD Cover Contest! *gasp*:: IMPORTANT UPDATE AT END ::*gasp* CD Cover Contest! *gasp*3 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
This is my first journal entry here. I should really consider being more active on DA, however it's hard to when I can't submit anything. Of course, there's always my Facebook page, whereupon I do post updates every now and then.
But I digress...
So it's my intention to create a new album. This album will have a collection of piano songs by me. There will be old piano solos, arrangements of Epic Battle Fantasy songs, and some new songs too. I'll probably have this album sold in both CD format and MP3 format (probably ITunes...). The title of this album is "Musician, Magician".
Of course, every album needs a cover. And while I can do a little bit (and I mean only a little) in Photoshop, I don't consider what I create visually to be anything impressive. So, I want to ask my fans for some help! And might as well make it a contest too (prizes and all)!
So here's the details:
There are two categories you can enter in:

UPDATE (11.05.13) Since I haven't received all entries yet, I'll extend the contest for some other days (maximum of one week).
Hello all ~
As I said in my last journal, I've decided to hold an 'X-Men: First Class' themed contest!
I just loved that movie, and in particular the way the young Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr have been represented.
That's why I am looking for more art about them (if you're a writer, go down to the literary section!)
Changed the prizes, now they're bigger
Now every participant will get 10 points for each entry he submits! (but only one can win)
Maximum number of entries per participant: 3
Contest Start: April 1, 2013
Contest End: May 12, 2013 (extended, waiting for the other entries)
Deadline might be extended if necessary
If there aren't at least 10 participants, the contest will be cancelled

Every thing is change; ocean waves and washed away sands where once children played. The tracks of wolves passing, wet printed along a shore; the bits of lettered sentiments blown down emptied modern streets. These are the left behind sign signals of what passed, and is now departing, leaving something ancient born again in the wakes of thrashed waters.
It went easily, a few quickly exchanged words, some rapid imagery, and then a fast-kept silence moving in so quickly not even breath could be caught. ' keep constant, keep quiet and to yourself, keep in motion ' The Taking Down proceeds in a hurly burly dance, accompanied by message checks, loud music, caffeination and nicotine addiction, coughing fits and sweated arm pits. Moments of reflection and a list that grows longer by the moment.
Revelation in the RainOkay, so it wasn't the rain. It was my shower. But hey, I was still getting wet, so I guess it still counts.Revelation in the Rain1 year ago in Personal More Like This
So, I was in the shower, just taking a shower. And when I was lathering my hair with my green apple-scented shampoo, I started thinking about grace. It is Easter, after all, and Jesus did die today (or somewhere around this day) two thousand years ago (give or take some years) to save me and everyone who ever lived from sin and Death. And the best things always come to me when I'm either in the shower or right when I'm about to fall asleep.
Anyway, as I washed my hair and thought about grace, I couldn't help but also think about the way I think. My mindset on how I receive things has always been this: I do something, and then someone gives me something in return. I always feel that when someone gives something to me, that I'm obligated to doing or giving something to or for them in return. That's how it's always been for me. And I'm pretty sure that's how my mind w

The ancient battle was fought,
You held them back.
What I wouldn't give to see you again,
To see your smiling face,
To know you are with us.
But for now you are away,
Where you are healthy and can laugh,
I shall meet you there,
But not for many years.
So this is to say goodbye and good luck,
I hope you are safe in the land of the lost.

Falling for the last timeA quick glimpse,Falling for the last time2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A stray word my way,
A sniff of your scent,
Is all it takes to bring me back.
Your eyes keep me locked,
Your voice makes me freeze,
Your face brings it all back,
The pain and hurt and tears.
Why do I have to be tortured like this?
Why do I have to be the one who cries?
Why do I have to be plagued with everything you?
When I did nothing wrong?
You think you can use and abuse me,
You think I will come running every time,
You think your God's gift to the world,
But your not, your just a guy.
Heart beating, heart breaking.
Eyes empty, eyes dry.
You did this so stand up and take it.
Why do I still love you through all the lies?
JoyEvery day you wake up with a bucket of joyJoy1 year ago in Personal More Like This
but the bucket is only so big, and only holds so much joy
When something bad happens, a part of the joy in your bucket gets taken away
Which is why people will feel worse in the evening
because they have no joy left in their bucket
so if you have someone texting you bad things early in the morning,
or you're having bad things happen early in the morning, then that's taking away your joy, so you dont have much for the rest of the day
so if something happens in the morning, and you dont have much joy left in your bucket, then say something happens between you and your friend happens at night, then you have no joy left in your bucket, which is why people get depression at night and stuff.
But that isn't completely true.
Having depression is like waking up in the morning to find your bucket of joy kicked over, upside-down, so you have no joy to even start the day with.
Having depression is like waking up ever day, hoping that maybe, for once, your
How To Write A Critique For A ProfessionalProfessionals like myself will occasionally ask for a critique on something or other that we've done. I'm going to explain how to do a critique for someone like myself. I'm going to tell you now that this was brought on by a critique I received from someone who never did a critique before and had no idea how to do it.How To Write A Critique For A Professional1 year ago in Art Features More Like This
Read Other Critiques
The worse thing you can do for yourself is write a critique when you have no idea what you're doing. It will be promptly rejected as it's very obvious to the person reading it. If you've never written one the best thing you CAN do is look at some critiques from other people. Example, I'm a writer so look at critiques that were done on other literature pieces. Also keep in mind that I'm a novelist so look for critiques for short stories instead of poetry or lyrics. They're a completely different genre.
If you're going to say something negative about a piece explain why you think it's bad and make sugge

TRGXD's 1st look review: DK tropical freezeTRGXD's 1st look review: DK tropical freeze6 months ago in Personal More Like This
So, winter is slowly leaving and soon it will be summer. So I thought it will be the perfect chance to talk about DK tropical freeze. This game will be similar to the wii and 3ds version ( I think ) It's going to be in stores in a week or so but I'll just look at what we got so far.
This DK game will have DK, Diddy kong, Dixie kong, and cranky kong as playable characters ( but Diddy Dixie and Cranky will mostly be your side kicks if this game will be similar to the wii/3ds version). The levels I got to look at were pretty cool. The colors are used nicely and over all and it looks like a good game ( I just hope it won't be so hard like the wii/3ds version). I'm going to say the pros of the game first than a rate
~looks like good game play
~different side kicks
~awesome bad guys
Their is really nothing else to say about this until I get the game. I saw the commercial and I think this game will be

The bar, that I work occasionally at, caters to a slightly older slice of the university and town's demographic; that element that fits nicely in the "employed or graced with disposable income and a credit rating that can ride for months" category. I get my call in the mid-morning and show up at five in the evening to fill in for Tom or Jeannie who for family, illness, or personal reasons (with Jeannie read 'hot date *nom.nom*') won't show.
This is not the Seattle place with gleaming burled walnut bar top, it's not Frisco with the dance floor crowded with pierced and inked glamors, it's not Paris with the elegance of subtle seductions either. The customers are less involved with impression and more with obtaining or maintaining contact. Sure there are the lonely ones, the isolates like me just entering the fray of new-arrival, but most are known already to each other and so sit quite comfortably.

I breathe shallowly, my thighs ache, my heart pumps irregularly and hard to a musician whom I cannot hear; I stop and shift my weight and that of you.
Absent and then present yet again, visitations to the possessed; "You look beautiful" said with the face map of humorous in a darkened room, followed by a kiss and the sound of slippers exiting.
The number "31" has taken on a mysterious importance baring no significance no matter what numerological technique I have applied.
"Disappointment" a cudgel, a denial, a rapid form of dismissal to a category of the previously experienced and no longer desired; there is no possible way to apply it as a motivator or potential reward, its body set cannot be isolated to a limited facial group of muscle flows and lines.

My favourite poem ever :-
Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high;
Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls;
Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habit;
Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought and action --
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake.

I decided to put my knowledge to use, for the benefit of our artistic community and all people out there trying to thrive.
As I've written in my ID, I'm a literature and language teacher. I've been working hard to get my master degree in French Literature and Narrative Theories, which will come latter this year.
And as for this, I thought I could be at your service to read your literature deviations and post you honest constructive critics based on the best of world wide letters!
But I have to be clear about one thing: I am not the kind of person that only say what you might want to hear.
I will never be rude or disrespectful BUT... it is needed of me to say sometimes things you may not agree or accept.
If you ask me for a critic don't be upset if I eventually point an aspect of your composition that needs to be improved.
I'm sure that it's not
