Flash: The Bright Light at the End of the TunnelFlash. The bright light that blinds you before the picture is taken and leaves you and your family/friends looking like a bunch of Hellspawn onFlash: The Bright Light at the End of the Tunnel2 years ago in Personal More Like This
a bad day. Sort of like this...
Well, did you know that flash can be your best friend instead of your worst enemy? It's true! Flash, when used in certain ways, can generally brighten up a dark scene or illuminate objects hidden by shadow, especially when outside!
Some general tips about flash and red-eye
Light gets dimmers the farther it travels. The same is true about flash. So subjects close to the flash when it goes off will be lit up while subjects farther away will be darker or hidden in shadow.
A flash-lit scene may not be evenly illuminated. To solve this problem, use a smaller aperture for subjects close to the flash and a larger aperture for subjects farther away.
Since flash is so quick, it usually catches an object in motion so you don't have to worry about anything blurring, thou
Pillow FortIf you built a pillow fort, what would be the password?Pillow Fort1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Oh, don't tell me! It's not for me to know. You can only tell someone really special. Someone you can trust.
Think of the times you built a wall around your heart to keep everyone out. Who is the one person you'll always allow to break down the wall, or let in, or trap inside with you?
That's the person you're supposed to tell the password to your pillow fort to.
Now go and built a pillow fort, and if you don't already know, find out who that special person is and let them know that you will always let them in.
I'm gonna pick up the pieces / and build a lego house / when things go wrong we can knock it down / My three words have two meanings / there's one thing on my mind / It's all for you / And it's dark in a cold December / but I've got ya to keep me warm / and if you're broke I'll mend ya / and keep you sheltered from the storm that's raging on / I'm out of touch, I'm out of love / I'll pick you up when you're getting down
Devious Journal EntryI just wondering about the prediction of ENGLAND's olympic's. If what is being said, that a type of bomb is to be exploded in order to kill thousands of innocent people and that the government knows all too well about this. I am beginning to see a horrable trend even with our own 9/11 so called bombing. That this world is at the verge of destruction. Looking back at human history, with Germany killing off so many people during such a short life span and not just jews either. A large diverse of humans were killed. Looking back at human history, GOVERNMENTS were killing off many people but it seems that now our governments are doing it on a regular bases....Devious Journal Entry1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Yeppi!!! I can't wait for the end time that is predicted. I am sick of all this HATE n KILLING of children, women, n men. I am sick of seeing people starve to death while we seat back, eating our food and watching such death continue on.
Electricity and Cinnamon and Unexpected CakeMy boyfriend tends to say rather cute things to me which I can't help but want to share with people. In the past few days, he has said two particularly adorable things:Electricity and Cinnamon and Unexpected Cake2 years ago in Personal More Like This
A few nights ago at 10:30 at night: I love being with you. You make me feel like bubbles made of electricity and cinnamon.
Last night at 11 at night: You are like unexpected cake on a rainy afternoon.
I love him, so much
I just wanted to share the cuteness with you guys
Peace, love and rock out.

Devious Journal EntryWhat to say,Devious Journal Entry2 years ago in Personal More Like This
i got nothing to complain about,
nothing to yawn about and nothing to cry about,
my soul's completely poured out with every second,
happiest and united, with reason of me,
and thats all that matters,
so whatsoever happens around,
whether its the pain or the agony of the world chasing around me,
if its disease or sickness, pain or words,
it passes me by, as all else,
for all i am is all that means to me,
and that, is my angel, whom im infinite gratefulest to.
Never before i have lived, for my life has started with him,
waited for him i have, always before,
and with him i was brought to the life i am
he is my life, if there only were words to put his magnificence
and what he puts me into words, but there arent any,
for im in undescribable bliss,
im beyond happiest.
I finally see, i finally feel and i finally hear,
why im here, in this world, as always after,
Rainy day, sunny day,
its always a perfect day,
with every perfect second going on,
with every breath that is
the ones who don't succeedAll my life I've hated condescension. The worst thing you can do is look down on a person who failed in something, be it exams or something else. Because the failures are the ones who pour heart and soul into their work and yet come out empty-handed. They live with disappointment for days on end and get swallowed up by the 'what ifs' and the 'maybes'. The failures are the ones who have to pull themselves out of a very, very dark hole. Shit just doesn't go right sometimes, no matter what you do, and I don't think people realise just how hard it is to keep going. It's so easy to say 'suck it up and work harder', and yes, that's the right thing to do, but it's never easy, and it'll never be easy. People don't get that damn disgusting feeling; that you've screwed up again for the hundredth fucking time and nothing you've done has come to fruition. It's so damn hard to find the will to try again. Failure sinks in and eats you alive and all that bullshit about learning frothe ones who don't succeed3 months ago in Personal More Like This

As I Sit Here, I Contemplate.....And I think to myself, I've never been so happy art-wise before, in my life. Not even when I was drawing everyday for 3 years trying to perfect that one Sonic pose and eventually getting it down pat. But in all seriousness, this wonderful, wonderful community never fails to put a great big smile on my face. You guys always leave me smiling in some form or fashion.As I Sit Here, I Contemplate.....4 months ago in Personal More Like This
Even when I'm down in the dumps, you guys manage to bring me back up and I've made so many wonderful friends 'cause of this site as well. It's just really, really awesome. As a guy who just really seriously started writing around the end of January, it's just an absolute pleasure to have been welcomed so openly. And I'm definitely making sure I'm enjoying the ride 'cause you guys are just the best. Much love to everyone and one of these days, I'm gonna have an epic literature feature. :iconlovesplz:
I guess I'm just feeling sappy, tonight. But I'm in a fantastic mood, I love you

She made my day with this so please, please go show her love. Llama her, watch her, fave, comment on pieces just do something kind for her 'cause she didn't have to do this for me.

Well, you should all know by now (through the constant spam hehe) of my musical hopes! Singing, lyric writing, metal-tastic experiences and whatnot. It kind of fell through the roof, I guess.
I can only do vocals. I don't play anything. I used to play guitar but I dropped that when I moved (the con of having to leave behind your teacher, le derp). To be fair with you all, I've never been confident with my voice. I've never sung in public. If I did, it would be muttered almost. I'd sing in front of family, but I'd then be worried that it'd be too much for

How have you all been? What's the weather like? Avocado? Yes, no or maybe so? I haven't been reading journals and am woefully out of touch.
A poem or two that I'll be posting this week, and also an update on my brand spanking sparkly new SUPER SECRET FIVE PART SURPRISE that is guaranteed to blow your socks off (or at the very least, give you gas). I've got so many things in store. But for now, I'll keep this entry short, leaving you all with some dubstep for your trouble.
Love and Mocha!

May Mixup Madness BEGINS!*dA has glitched with my journal and sent me back in time *May Mixup Madness BEGINS!8 months ago in Personal More Like This
Hey guys! I'm sorry for having been so utterly unreliable of late. I hope you have had a wonderful 2013 and that you're all feeling fired up to try something a bit different. I don't know if many of you remember when I ran a challenge called May Mixup Madness a few years ago but we are repeating it this May because, well, we all need to kickstart those creative engines and create something entirely unique.
May Mixup Madness follows a similar structure to the cento poetic form in that you choose ONE musician or poet and use lines from various pieces of theirs. You can't use more than one line from each piece so if you're creating an 8 line, 2 stanza poem, you will need 8 different songs or poems to draw from. Once you have your musician/band/poet and your chosen lines, all you have to do is stitch them together to create something new and amazing!
Choose it, Fi

I've been thinkin' about this idea for AGES and now...I think I can make this happen. :iconfingerscrossedplz: These are the list of wonderful deviants who are gonna join me on this super collabo'. <3 If you guys want in, comment here, on my latest poll or note me. At midnight I'll post another poll on the topic and we'll all vote on it, then I'll note all of you guys and we can get started. There's absolutely NO deadline, but I'd really love for this to be finished by the end of the year. Sound doable, right?
Please! Don't be intimidated or anything, I want a ton of people to join in, so don't hesitate if you want to write with us. I think it'd be so amazingly fun for everyone. Creating art and sharing it with the world of deviantART. Sounds pretty epic to me! In my mind, I wanted ALL of us to write on one topic and make it our own with only a few short stanzas. (
