Dat new logoI don't really comment on this stuff often but wow, the new logo sucks. I will now write a short journal about it.Dat new logo7 months ago in Personal More Like This

an obtuse Zlazy and pretending to be avant-gardeall of the above
Any thoughts? I don't get it. It doesn't even match the style of the rest of the site. It stands out like a sore thumb, and not in some charming artistic way... just in a dumb way. The old logo was around in different varieties since I joined DA in 2003. It was simple and made since. You saw a D, and an A. DA! Deviantart! Hooray! Now it's just some dumb symbol that has no relevance to the website and looks better-suited for some financial place with how green it is. I see half an A, at best. No D. I see maybe a silhouette of an F, which makes me think of FA, the abbreviation for FurAffinity.
tl;dr new logo should be blue and be used at Furaffinity (which uses blue hues)

Teslapunk technologyHere's a question for the physicistsTeslapunk technology4 years ago in Personal More Like This
If we discover a way create a path of low electrical resistance through air (wireless electricity, electrical fields with sharp edges), what are some of the technologies that might spring from it?
So far I've got:
(1) appliances that pick up electricity from generators in the area (like wifi)
(2) weapons that zap you, like wireless tasers
(4) a shell of low resistance sandwiched between shells of high resistance, the middle shell filled with suspended bits of metal. Set it to spin. Instant shield.
(5) create different paths for metal shards to move down, and your rail- or coil-gun becomes a variable-length chainsaw. Or boomerang gun.
(7) a powerful and complicated looped path for electrons. Pass it through electronics and watch them fry. Pass it through someone's head and they die or go insane.
Any other ideas?

Sorry for the day of silence, things have been quite busy x.x;
I have great news, though! thanks to a generous burst of donations, I've passed my $1000 goal!! There are never words good enough to thank all of you C: You have all helped save a family with pretty much nowhere to go, were this to fall through.
I'll be streaming again later tonight to get more of these commissions done! There's been an explosive amount of support, and a high number of commissioners in a very small period of time. I hope to get through all of these in a timely manner, though it has gotten a tiny bit overwhelming! Pushing forward as always, never giving up.
Feel free to poke me for further commissions/donations if you want, though. Raising the minimum doesn't mean it all has to stop here, as any extra will be going into savings to help prevent this from happening in

WOLF COP: Here comes the fuzz!WOLFCOP tore apart the competition at indie movie-funding contest run by Cine Coup last year, and now it's coming to theaters! I followed them every step of the way, and seeing the dedication of the crew and the creativity of the folks involved as they rose to every challenge just warmed the cockles of my cold, dead, unbeating heart. The movie looks like it's going to be everything a werewolf flick should be - gory, funny, and made by people who really love the genre.WOLF COP: Here comes the fuzz!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
The WOLFCOP crew is also running an indie-go-go (kind of like kickstarter, but not America-exclusive) which will net you some prime werewolf merch, including a sweet action figure!
Leave of absence...I'll write more about this later, but I'm going to be quiet for a bit. Over the last couple months my Mother's health has declined rapidly and now we're measuring things in days. We're taking care of her as best we can, but the end is coming very very soon. I honestly don't know how I'll handle this, but it's a strong bet I won't be posting or answering comments or notes for a time.Leave of absence...2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Mom passed away Friday night about 10pm. It was quiet and peaceful. No pain or convulsions. She just relaxed and went to sleep. We knew it was coming and you try to prepare as best you can, but of course you can't really. Our family is large though... eight kids, more than sixteen grandkids, great

I need you to see this. I need you all to know that my country does not play fair in elections. My country uses phantom voters, money to bribe people, bringing foreigners on overseas from Bangladesh, Myanmar, Indonesia and the like to buffer votes and in the process, manipulate and lie to them that they will be taken care of. They also try to cover up what is really happening inside the country- so others outside the nation do not know the terrible truth that is happening in it.
They murder those that question them if they aren't high-profile enough, they silence our protests with lies and call it rioting. Not only that, the police- the very people the nation trust to protect and guard them- also take part in harming the people of Malaysia who speak out. Tear gas. Water cannons. You name it.

The pain's right here in my chest..
Yes, I was the one who did it
Yes, I've wounded myself
It goes away naturally when I leave it be
but this pain just keeps coming back
When I close my eyes, all I know
Are the things I can't see
It's unreasonable to the extreme
Someone must know my anguish...
Don't come near, don't come here
Don't let it get you so excited
Don't mind, don't pay it any mind
Just stop shouting your head off
Go away, go away, yes,
I'll be gone into thin air soon enough,

For those that hate the fandomAs we all know, The furry fandom has this side of it that I like to call Furotica, which is a play on the word Erotica. In common form it is called YIFF Which stands for Young Incredibly Fuckable Furry. Now I don't know the orgins of the word, but I do know that there is a larger number of clean artists, than there are YIFF artists. Now when I say that, I mean the only way to be a YIFF artist is if a majority of your artwork is of nude anthropomorphics dojng sexual thing/posing sexually, as well as erotic writing. Yes, I have done some erotic writing myself, but in no way has it taken over the majority of my works.For those that hate the fandom3 years ago in Personal More Like This
You see, friends, What the media thinks of us is what they want you all to think too. When the fur conventions come to town, some media outlets purposely look for those furries that like the YIFF side of the tail (so to speak) and then act upon it, saying that a majority of us do that kind of stuff. Let me reassure you, that's not the case. Let me also point out that every d
