On dA for 10 yearsI'm happy to have been here for this long.On dA for 10 years2 years ago in Personal More Like This
It doesn't feel that long - but in a few more years I'll have been on this site for half my life. Sheesh!
I've improved so much having an audience to show work to, even if the point of the work wasn't an audience - just having a platform from which I could do anything at all has been really amazing for me over the years.
And then... PMD-e... which has been a really tremendous learning experience for me (and others!), in so many ways. I don't want to turn this journal sappy or anything, but I've been lucky to have met so many people and have gotten the chance to help create a community with its ups and downs.
And... speaking of such...
I'll be making a journal later about the state of PMD-e right now - I know the updates have been sporadic, and this has been for a few reasons. I've been thinking about how to word things for a few days now, and I don't think I've quite gotten it yet.
Anyway, for those of you who've been around since

Bitching About April Fools on DeviantartLets get a little perspective, peopleBitching About April Fools on Deviantart3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I Know that it is common knowledge that the art-world generally regards deviantart as a beckon of professionalism and respectability. To see something like this while browsing for serious prospective employees on another busy work sunday on a serious talent search site that is totally serious business guys is totally going to get you banned from the art world and loose you all the jobz you would have gotten that day! This is an outrageous prank! This is not what DA is about!
Come on guys, perspective.
If your gallery is so important to your life and career that you can not stand to have even one of your precious thumbnails momentarily obscured lest every employer decide that cats are no longer the "in" thing this year and black list you from the industry, you probably shouldn't be on DA. Yes, some people get a lot of traffic from DA, but lets be honest, this is not an appropriate site in which to host any kind of serious portfolio. Fine,

3DS Ambassador DownloadsWhen the 3DS got a severe price drop only a few months after being released, Nintendo made it up to those who bought it early by enrolling them in "The Ambassador Program" which essentially gives those gamers 20 free games.

So if you're part of the Ambassador program, go download them now!3DS Ambassador Downloads4 years ago in Personal More Like This

About training to fullfill your goals and dreams.My experience of my small lonely, personal travel up to New York City was amazing decision, I've experienced a lot being as a part of the life of grand cities in the USA- which are quite much different worlds than most major cities in Europe. Not as a tourist but I transformed myself being as a New York citizen for several days, to feel in New Yorkish people how they live. As Brooklyn-er, I spent all days wandering along the buildings of that city, sitting down and watching people and the environment riding in the train and exploring between many boroughs and neighborhoods, from overwhelming, very touristic-y, overrated and famous Manhattan to the another side of the world, filled with a lot darker atmosphere- the Bronx.About training to fullfill your goals and dreams.3 years ago in Personal More Like This

An absolutely incredible display of classy, incredible puppet horror and culture. Seriously, this show scared the bejeesus out of me when I was younger but I loved it and I'm so happ
On the Subject of Claws and Long NailsCreatures from myth with long, sharp nails, claws, or talons is nothing new. Same goes for characters from popular media and original characters. However, some time ago I read an article featuring an interview with Ralph Fiennes (the actor who played Voldemort in the Harry Potter film series). For the role, he had these fake nails glued on and, interestingly enough, said he had to avoid making a fist or else the nails would break off (I think you can also notice during the films there's a sort of delicacy to how he even holds his wand and generally gestures with his hands because of this)On the Subject of Claws and Long Nails3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This was interesting to me because:
1) It got me thinking of how all these characters with long nails and sharp claws (unless they were somehow retractable) could manage to make proper fists and do all these action sequences where they're punching each other and doing anything else that involves gratuitous and dramatic hand clenching.
2) It likewise made me wonder how these characters could go around

I just wanted to make a quick announcement! The USPS (what I use to send all packages) recently raised the price of United States first class parcels as well as Delivery Confirmation. To reflect this change, I unfortunately have the raise the price of United States shipping from $2.80 to $3.00. I hope you all understand this change! I do everything I can to keep shipping costs low, but this particular change is out of my control. International price will stay the same at $3.50 per package, as it doesn't come with delivery confirmation and is unaffected by this change.
Thank you for your understanding! ♥ Shipping costs will change on the website and Etsy, so there's nothing you as the buyer need to do, except shake your fist at your local post office. ;D

The experience was based on my life what I've gone through, seen and from the most of people which I've met. Also I had the chance to have conversation about it with inspiring, successful and very positive influencing people where they had rough past before they achieved their true selves and self happiness in the life.
Since my latest and most active travels I've had, were to USA. I've traveled through many states, met new people (where they became wonderful friends with me and my travel partner) and had great new experience from the life of americans, as well how I handle with most of situations- like on usual travels.

My belly will grow and proudly proclaim my devotion.
My appetite will become greedier, allowing me to eat even more.
I will rejoice when people criticize my weight, for they confirm my progress.

First of all, the open letter I promised is now finally online: http://marikbentusi.deviantart.com/art/Open-Letter-to-dA-Scripts-179427095
Second, everybody who watches me because of updates about scripts, please unwatch me. I will not update the story on this account anymore. New updates will only be posted on :iconScriptStop: so I can separate the attention from my main account. I hope you understand.
Added Nanobear because their mass-watches have 4-10 seconds in between. That's really suspicious.
What is this about?
Some people use a script to watch a lot of random deviants. Some do it for laughs or play pranks, other do it for attention, pageviews, backwatches or promote their points donations, etc., you get the idea. You can read about the story [here], but keep in mind that the account mentioned the most in that article, akoye has switched ownership
You see, I have this theory...about ascending to God-tier. Basically we all know the deal with the quest beds/ quest cocoons. But what about the crypt beds/cocoons? Mr. Hussie has been very vague on this fact only saying how they appear to work. And they may work in the way he has stated. But what if ( here comes the theory) the only requirement for the crypt beds to work is a dream self on it( dead or dying) when the awake self has died. The reason I say this is a crypt is no place of a sleeping person. A crypt by definition is a place of the dead. We only know so little about this second method of ascension past the echelader. And have only seen three instances of it; Rose, Dave, and Aradia. All of these only have one thing in common: the awake self had died and they were on the crypt beds. Dave and Rose's dreamselves died on the crypt beds. Aradia is the oddball though. Was her dreamself really alive just permanently sleeping on the crypt in the center of Derse because she did not belong with the other dreamselvYou see, I have this theory...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
