the crows have taken their pound of flesh and eaten it raw,
dragging their voices down the chalkboard sky.
medicated, i watch them feed with empty Auschwitz eyes,
every day is the same claustrophobic affair over again.
i miss the taste of axenic fear in my throat,
but my new world is monochrome and i am forced to swallow their synthetic ambrosia.
twisted into my fetal pose, i mark the walls misted from my metric breath,
they say those in glass houses.. but i have no stones to throw
or i would waste this crystal mausoleum from the inside.
they nailed my wings to the floor,
they keep me tranquilized and tell me this is home.
the shower drains are clotted with famous last words,
this is where savages and wandering savants come to die.
i am the leaden albatross around my own neck,
my metamorphosis brought me here.
Balto and ADGTH is against godNo, I don't believe that Balto 2: Wolf quest is against God, but a lot of people do. Enjoy the lulz.Balto and ADGTH is against god4 years ago in Free Verse More Like This
First off, the story was horrid. I know every movie is trying to make some kind of statement, but this was outright propaganda for humanism and naturalism. The first Balto, thankfully, stayed away from these topics that very few can relate to, and simply presented pure family-friendly entertainment. Balto 2, however, couldn't resist the urge to promote such philosophies as becoming "one" with nature (trees, etc.), following your own inner-instincts/leadings, allowing the spirits of the dead to guide you... and that's only the beginning. Sure, there's some good stuff about letting go of your fears and finding out "who" you are, as opposed to just "what" you are. But any good messages are buried deep in the mire of this "new-age" humanistic theology.There are also scenes where Balto's daughter tells her father that she "hates" him and that he's "hopeless." These attitudes, as well as t

Apparently, theres something wrong with having one. And having one with a very developed story that intertwines with the characters of said fandom (assume its Naruto and I WILL destroy you). What really is wrong with having one is beyond me, but it seems if you do a few stories with fan characters, or original characters to be specific, the story will go unread.
Really, are you that shallow-minded?
Ive been writing fanfictions on and off for years now, since 2004, varying between what my interests were at that point. So YES I have a Naruto one, BACK. OFF.

Why respect religion?It is often said that we must respect the religious beliefs of others. Simply put, I don't. That is not to say that I see religious people as less deserving of equal protection, but I do not see their beliefs as fundamentally reasonable and worthy of respect, and I think that this claim that we must respect the rights of others undermines our ability to have substantive debates on moral and political issues, by treating certain ideas as immune from debate and criticism. Why, as an atheist, should I respect those who believe, on religious conviction, that atheists should be put to death? Should I not show them the same amount of respect they show me?Why respect religion?3 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
The evidence in favor of most religions is weak or nonexistent. I focus on the religions I am most familiar with, but I have reason to believe that other religions have the same general flaws, as these flaws appear to be intrinsic to religion and not simply features of a few specific religions. One key flaw in religion is reliance on faith.
Why America is the best.Reasons why the United States of America is the best country in the worldWhy America is the best.3 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This
You may be wondering out of all of the different countries in the world, which one is the best. Here is a list of reasons why I think America is the best one of all.
1.) We Americans are great with money.
Making money, keeping money, spending money, it all comes so naturally to us. Don't listen to the people who say that America is trillions of dollars in debt. Those dirty liars.
2.) Americans are so accepting of others, especially if they are different.
Everyone who has ever been to the United States of America knows that we are very accepting people. Are you gay? Muslim? Christian? Atheist? Fat? Skinny? Black? White? Do you have 2 heads? Don't worry. We are okay with people who are different and we accept them all.
3.) Americans as a whole are extremely smart.

there always is a time to grow,
a time to live, a time to die
time to laugh, and time to sigh

and when all's refined
all is dust.
But this is not a prophecy
or wise words long forgotten
but the world in plain sight

But even this revelation

No, it is a call to action.
A dawn awaits our setting sun
a dawn we see within our young.
And the only way we see it shine?
Toil and blood and aches and time--
Yes, time moves slowly, but even so

Review of Chapter Six
By Stephenie Meyer
So after many long days of keeping this thing as far from my physical person as possible, I must return to complete my duty. What is my duty you ask? Killing myself very slowly in the worst possible way ever. So, in order to do this task, I grab Sheepie and the copy of Twilight I borrowed from the bookstore with no intention of returning. [No, I'm dead serious, I may have apprehended that book without legal rights to do so.]
For a brief [and we mean brief] recap:
Bella Swan moves to Forks.
Meets Edward Sexy Pants.
Nothing of importance happens.
There. You're caught up.
I mean, I could delve into unnecessary detail about what happened in the five previous torture sessions I've put myself through for your sick entertainment, but then you'd just be lazy assholes. Go read the previous five chapters, you bastards.
I'm just kidding, I love you...somewhat.

Essay: Double Standards and "Shoving Them down My Throat"
This stamp can apply to anyone, but I am particularly addressing this to certain members of the atheistic community who make the rest of them look bad.
Some things that need to be said up front:
This is not meant to be a statement against atheism in general, nor is it intended to incite hatred against the atheist community. Many if not most atheists I've met are people for whom I have great respect.I am among the first to admit that the Christian community has many shortcomings of its own, and this stamp is not an attempt to deny that fact. The words and actions of fellow Christians are often just as offensive as the words and actions of those challenging Christianity.In this essay, I am referring mainly to the extreme, militant atheists. When I simply use the term "atheist" in this essay, it is not from an intent to generalize: merely a shortening from "extreme, militant atheist" for the sake

An Analysis of Deviant Art's AsshatteryAn Analysis of Deviant Art's Asshattery3 years ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
As many of us are well aware, there are many fundamental issues with the way Deviant Art functions as a website. The site is often slow or all-out unresponsive, people have no privacy and protection, and other problems exist that the staff simply doesn't care to resolve. Despite these problems and many others, the most we see in the way of site updates is aesthetic tweaks and piddly, unnecessary destination re-routes.
As far as I can gather, there are four basic issues with Deviant Art that desperately need to be changed. There are probably more, but they will be saved for a later article if they are brought to my attention. Each issue I see will be discussed and solutions will be proposed. It is not necessarily my hope to receive a Daily Deviation on this, and I certainly don't expect the staff to actually take it into consideration, but I do hope to at least share my thoughts on the issues I've experienced in my 2.5 years as a De
BullyWhen I was a minor, I was heavily bullied throughout my public schooling life. That is preschool all the way to senior year. I was bullied for various reasons; for being too smart, for having crooked teeth, for liking cats, for "being too manly", for being friendly... and it destroyed me. I have attempted suicide twice in my life and have permanently been inflicted with depression. I also have an extremely hard time socializing and standing up for myself, because any time I had tried to do so in my past, only made things worse for me...Bully3 years ago in Letters More Like This
I got it not only from other students, but also from teachers and school boards, who discriminated against me in various ways. What was I to do? No adult would help me, in fact they told me it was all my fault and I deserved it, they told me to stop standing up and to stop being who I am. It made me for the longest time a walking zombie, unable to express myself and my desires, because I had lost hope.

An Essay on Republican Capitalist PhilosophyAn Essay on Republican Capitalist Philosophy3 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
I wrote this essay because Herman Cain's 9-9-9 plan is the most ill-conceived and potentially counterproductive economical plan I have heard in recent history. Not only that, it seems to embody everything that is wrong with the republican way of thinking. I'm going to explain my objections to this plan, and also touch on the broader issues of republican capitalist ideals.
For those of you who are unfamiliar, Cain's 9-9-9 plan is to limit income tax 9%, but introducing a 9% business transactions tax and a 9% federal sales tax. There's one crucial problem I immediately noticed, and to make it easier to see, I'll illustrate it with extreme examples from opposite ends of the spectrum.
Consider a poor person who barely makes enough to get by. He has to spend nearly 100% of his income because of his living expenses alone. Now consider a very wealthy person making $10,000,000 per year. He could be very frivolous and still
