~ The Great Language Gathering Community ProjectHi guys! :)~ The Great Language Gathering Community Project2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
I'd like to build up a journal with your help ^-^ A journal filled with our languages, the languages on deviantART! Languages connect us, give us the chance to find new friends and learn about other people ...
The idea appeared to me because I started making language stamps long time ago, you can find them in here :)
My idea is to list all the languages people on dA can speak / write with both their English term and the original name, plus the sentence "I speak language" (correctly translated of course).
The sentences next to this are Thanks for the fave! Thanks for the watch! You're welcome.
Please help me fill the gaps / correct mistakes I have in my current list and also add new languages :D
I will try to make stamps for the languages that I haven't made stamps for yet :)
Languages will be sorted alphabetically

But yeah, thank you for all your comments but sadly, it will take me sometime to respond to them so please be patient with me!
TO ALL THOSE WHO COME HERE TO COMMENT AND HATE ON HOMESTUCK: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0la5DBtOVNI
I've been noticing that in all a those 'Bad fantroll blogs', most a the fantrolls that are put up there are those that either have 50% - 100% colored hair, a huge fashion sense that exceeds Kanaya's somehow and/or they have mutant/rainbow blood.
Now, if any Homestucker out has READ ALL THE ACTS, INCLUDING THE INTERMISSION, they will CLEARLY RECALL THAT TROLLS DO NOT HAVE OVERLY COLORED HAIR/CLOTHES/BLOOD.
In fact, in Troll Society, it is considered a DEATH WISH to wear clothing that isn't at least 15% black/grey (Meaning that the shirt MUST BE BLACK SO THAT YOU CAN SEE WHAT THE SYMBOL AND IT'S COLOR IS or else it will seem like you're trying to trick other trolls into b
Good Story Advice and the Power of PatienceI recently picked up a copy of Stephen King's the Dark Tower I and while I've yet to read the actual story, the book opens with a thoughtful introduction that contains a number of insightful pieces of commentary. However, the particular part of this opening introduction that really stood out to me was the portion where King mentioned Tolkien's influence on him as a youth and as a writer. He talks about how wildly popular Tolkien's work was with kids growing up around that time, and how reading Tolkien's work eventually inspired his own. In King's own words:Good Story Advice and the Power of Patience2 years ago in Personal More Like This
"But although I read the books in 1966 and 1967, I held off writing. I responded (with a rather touching wholeheartedness) to the sweep of Tolkien's imagination-to the ambition of his story-but I wanted to write my own kind of story, and had I started then, I would have written his. That...would have been wrong. Thanks to Mr. Tolkien, the twentieth century had all the wizards and elves it needed."
And that's a big reas
Thief of the Year AwardSaw this floating about Tumblr. As far as hilarious instances of theft goes, this is the motherload. A particularly colorful individual decides to steal art on video, not only claiming other people's OC's as their own, but also putting "my crappy art" in the video description. Funny how that "crappy" art was apparently attractive enough for them to steal.Thief of the Year Award2 years ago in Personal More Like This
(Protip: if you're going to commit art theft, next time make sure you at least steal from artists who aren't widely recognized on the web and popular art web sites).

A DISNEY PRINCESS FIRSTWhat we're really excited to see is the courageous Princess Merida in Pixar's Brave, who challenges her family and country's customs while wielding a bow and arrow on horseback - now that's a real Disney princess "first."A DISNEY PRINCESS FIRST2 years ago in Personal More Like This
At first I thought this was someone being sarcastic, then I realized it it was something someone actually said.
Don't get me wrong, at some point I'll most likely be seeing Brave myself, and the idea of an animated Pixar film taking place in ancient Scotland is all kinds of neat, but come on. Even when I saw the trailer the whole, "MERIDA THAT IS NOT LADY-LIKE" had me nearly rolling my eyes. I'm really, really hoping the film isn't going to prop itself up on, "there is a young and feisty girl BUT SHE ISN'T LIKE OTHER GIRLS BECAUSE SHE WANTS TO BE A WARRIOR AND DO THINGS ONLY BOYS DO AND EVERYONE THINKS IT'S WRONG BECAUSE IT'S NOT LADY-LIKE BUT BECAUSE SHE'D RATHER

My Minecraft Testificate InfestationIn Minecraft there are these squidward like villagers called Testificates. In a recent update they were given new abilities such as having babies to repopulating a town based on the number of houses there are. Since the requirement for a "house" is simply a room with a roof and a door, I decided to spend my time building a massive city for the Testificates to populate, using a generated village as a starting point.My Minecraft Testificate Infestation2 years ago in Personal More Like This
After building a number of houses, I began noticing the little children running wild and there becoming quite a LOT of villagers. I undertook a huge task of building a BIG open area underground with a couple doors and lights. Because the area was so big, the Testificates began to... um... OVER populate.
These little buggers reproduced the village so fast that I couldn't keep up and soon they were overflowing out of buildings. Mob attacks couldn't keep up with the rate they were repopulating, and the iron golems that kept spawning (for every 15 villager a new one spawns) made

Homophobic #ToMyUnbornChild tweets turned into PSACharlotte Moore (Cavatica) from Raleigh, North Carolina has created a PSA against homophobia after the Twitter hashtag #ToMyUnbornChild attracted homophobes to publicly announce that they would murder their child if he or she was gay.Homophobic #ToMyUnbornChild tweets turned into PSA2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
#ToMyUnbornChild became a trending topic on Twitter a few weeks ago, and while most people used it to write loving tweets to their future children, some homophobes decided to do just the opposite.
@Homophobes, a Twitter account that retweets homophobes to expose their ignorance, published an article of 100 extremely homophobic tweets, which gained quite a bit of attention around the web.
Charlotte Moore was inspired, and decided to write and direct a PSA using the tweets. The video was produced by Brian Lee and Nick Heim.

On the Subject of BasesFellow People of Deviantart,On the Subject of Bases2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
I am here today to talk to you about Bases and Dolling.
I am not asking you to do it, or even to like it, but just to put out a standpoint that is sorely missing from this ongoing row over what a Base really is.
You may think a base is a large traced piece from anime with no skill and that the people who draw on top of them are lazy artists who just don't want to learn how to draw. Some bases are traced, but not every base.
Dolling is a hobby, something that is done for fun, and not every doller out there wants to be able to draw like a whiz kid. A lot of people hold down jobs, or full time education and just want a little fun. And so they are able to use a base that they like and draw some clothes and hair onto it, often very skillfully.

If you want power, you need to turn the outlets on, and to do that you gotta push a switch down.
TV has far fewer commercial breaks.
English police are super nice (watched the British version of "COPS" and was amazed at how polite everyone was, even the criminals).
The second floor is called the first.
French Fries are called Chips.
Chips are called Crisps.
American-centric music doesn't stay here (Heard "Sweet Home Alabama" quite a number of times over there).
You are not expected to tip people (this was very hard for me to accept and I always felt guilty not tipping our waiters).
You are not expected to clean up your messes in food courts or.. anywhere actually (Janitors come by and clean up for you. Has something to do with security and getting rid of bomb threats).
Elevators are called Lifts.
Air conditioning seems scarce.

The deviantART community is incredibly deep and diverse. Every day, amazing art is produced that appeals to all tastes. Our goal in sharing and exposing the deviations in deviantART's Popular section is to showcase this depth and diversity as convincingly and fairly as we can.
DeviantART's algorithm for Popular browse results is known as Fair Exposure. The goal is to maximize the display of the most popular deviations in a variety of topics (styles/genres/art forms). Fair Exposure increases the probability that someone will see something that they personally like in Popular results. In short, with Fair Exposure, the community is exposed to a varied cross-section of deviantART. It uses an algorithm that is "fair" in nature -- meaning not biased toward any topic, yet still based on popularity.

Internet TimeWe had the Oscars recently and as usual it wasn't without problems. One of the controversies was Chris Rock's biting commentary about doing voice work for animated films, which was unfortunately insulting to the many hard working (yet perpetually unknown) talents who produce about 90% of all voice work in the animated medium. Chris Rock's joke was funny for his circle of friends and the aging academy, but to younger artists and professionals it was very disrespectful. Voice actress Tara Strong took particular issue with Rock's comment and as we speak his twitter account is no doubt being flooded with angry hate messages and likely racism too... which is very unfortunate. http://www.examiner.com/african-american-entertainment-in-national/tara-strong-attacks-chris-rock-over-oscar-2012-animation-comments-quotesInternet Time2 years ago in Personal More Like This

cemetery of woodWhen I was a lot younger I used to write. Poetry and prose were my friends back then, helping me to express myself. Later on, the muse died and I couldn't write anymore. I don't know why, it just happened so. It wasn't all such a sad story because photography came into my life and became my friend, my ally. However, a couple of months ago, the muse reappeared into my life for a very short while. It (or should I say "she" ? ) helped me write a short poem. This is probably one of the first times I'm...publishing my poems online. I would like to dedicate this poem to someone who passed away just a few days ago. Because, sometimes, people are like trees. Only the best people. I won't go explaining the poem, but I have to say that initially it was about the phenomenon of deforestation. I'll just let you understand what you want and feel from it.cemetery of wood3 years ago in Personal More Like This
