Communist Party of DeviantART Turns Ten.Dear comrades of the CPDA,Communist Party of DeviantART Turns Ten.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Today marks a milestone in our Party's existence. Today we mark ten years of struggle, solidarity, and artistic expression for the cause of Communism. The CPDA has come a long way in one decade, from a simple user account created for discussion and art-sharing into a several hundred strong group of people, with over one thousand watchers. Only within recent years has the Party organized itself, with the formation of a leading committee, specific goals, a web blog, and numerous affiliates to newer groups dedicated to fighting the good fight.
We have done all of this and continued our aims of education through writings, both theoretical and inspirational, as well collecting thousands of images as resources for all comrades wishing to spread our message. Of course, we still have much work to do. Our tasks are not nearly over, not so long as the bourgeoisie controls the means of production, not so long as there are reactionary forces left to be vanquished.
Danish Mythology wtfLiving in Denmark and such, our Nordic gods (Whom you also may know from the avengers) have been through some of the wierdest stories.Danish Mythology wtf2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Thor: The God of Thunder
Loki: The God of Mischief
Freya: The Goddess of Love
One day, Thor's hammer was stolen. Loki searched for it, and found that the giant Thrym had hidden the hammer, and refused to give it back unless Freya became his wife. The gods worked out a plan to get the hammer back while keeping Freya safe. Thor was dressed up as a beautiful woman and Freya even lent him her neckalce. Thor had a bristling red beard, so he must have looked ridiculous! He was sent to the giant and Loki went with him. At first the giant was worried about his bride's enormous appetite and fierce eyes, but Loki convinced him that it was Freya. Finally, the giant brought out Thor's hammer, and gave it to his new bride. Thor gave an enormous roar, tore off his wedding dress, and killed the giant with his hammer.

The tragedy of owning a motorcycle is that it sometimes must be “driven” instead of “ridden.” One must occasionally “drive” one’s bike to the store for a loaf of bread or to execute some other mundane activity unworthy of being a “motorcycle rider.” One is meant to ride, not drive, a bike—as it were a contentious beast forever being tamed. A bike should not be just a vehicle for the conveyance of bodies and materials. Riding should be transformative. A rider becomes one with the natural world being riven in twain by the wake of his bike’s passing. A rider becomes a living metaphor. A rid
Sketchbook Pro 6So most of you know that I'm a Sketchbook Pro user.Sketchbook Pro 63 years ago in Personal More Like This
A few days back, Autodesk released Sketchbook Pro 6, and I think this is the version that's going to make a lot of people who have YET to experience Sketchbook Pro in full, or haven't really given the past versions a chance, switch over to making it their digital drawing software of choice; heck, even their PAINTING software of choice.
We still have the cleverly-designed user interface, that makes it easy on the eyes and mind when we're brainstorming and sketching. With the handful of new tools introduced, we still have a clutter-free drawing environment, and man, there's some awesome tools this time around. I'll go down the list:
The Brush Library
The main brush toolbar itself has a click-and-drag function, allowing you to store all your often-used brushes in each of the "lanes". You then can click the button on the upper-right and then a fu

Chile 1973: The OTHER 9/11 AnniversaryFrom The Guardian by Raúl Zibechi, September 11, 2010Chile 1973: The OTHER 9/11 Anniversary3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Of the many military coups faced by the republics of Latin America, it is the coup of 11 September 1973 that has engraved itself most permanently on the collective memory. The images of the bombing of the Moneda Palace, of the despair on the face of Salvador Allende shortly before his suicide, of the defiant expression worn by Pinochet behind his dark glasses and of the public burning of books that circulated around the world and became the symbol of military brutality.
The dispersal into exile of 200,000 Chileans, most of them to Europe, added to the media images of men and women who had seen their lives destroyed by the death or disappearance of friends and relatives. The murder of thousands of political opponents and the detention and torture of people who were identified with the constitutional government isolated the military regime internationally.
The coup was supported by the US government of Richard Nixon. But a

Simple ThingsI feel how my Angel walks with me,Simple Things3 years ago in Personal More Like This
creating fog that slowly surrounds my surroundings...
Have the little urge to touch that Angel.
Her white, soft... fragile skin,
wearing sweet, tasteful perfume,
driving me lightly insane.
I might love her.
I might even hate her.
Miss her, being not real
or she is real, but I just have no right to reach out my hand,
so I could satisfy my need to hold somebody in my embrace.
Our minds are for simple things...
I can't even catch her with my hazy eyes,
afraid that she might see my look, so needy.
It is so hard and that's why -
Things are not of mind to simplify
and all I can do is imagine her to grin.
That innocent, toothpaste commercial smile.
I'm nothing but full of sadness
and she really doesn't mind...
if in a moment I just disappear into the darkness.
Nothing but Bible-black fool,
who's trying to walk on... carry on,
on this jumpy ground.
No living creature is with me on this deserted road,
once belonged to God,
now to emptiness in our hearts and so

Good morning Callisto VIII...
DeviantArt.com will celebrate its 15th birthday in August 2015. While many online communities have come and gone during the last decade and a half, DeviantArt remains because of our passionate and committed community. In that time, we've celebrated many milestones, and it became apparent we were in need of a place to share our victories and our challenges. And since we want to move toward more complete transparency with the community, what better time to also showcas

2.) Really thank all those around me with all my heart. without these people, i wouldn't be alive, i'd simple be living an empty life.
3.) Understand and feel all the pain in the world so i could show the most compassion. so i could try to help.
Like Rogue from the x men; yeah i'd get sick of having personality disorders... But (for example) Rogue felt the pain that archangel felt, she tried to help and with all of her heart, she understood him.
4.) travel the world, turning the attention of others to try to be compassionate
5.) try to get the message by through music, that it's the LYRICS and the EMOTIONAL DEPTH that matter...
Shimmy's KSIt just needs eighty bucks ($80, even) in the next week to get funded! He's a cool guy and much better at the art thing than I am, and it would be really quite nice to see his artbook get produced. Not that I expect that anybody who knows my dA doesn't already follow his, mind, but just giving people a heads up. If you were on the fence, this is probably a good chance to put a few bucks in and be reasonably sure that the project will actually get funded.Shimmy's KS2 years ago in Personal More Like This
