RESPECT THE ARTISTI do not know what some people think is respectable behavior but belittling anyone and treating them like the are idiots and saying/implying "suck it up, your in a business leave your mouth shut and just do the work" is NOT respectable. Just because someone is doing a service for someone does not mean that they should take crap from anyone.RESPECT THE ARTIST9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Lets make this clear: I will NOT bend over backwards for anyone acting childish, refusing to look at the work i did out of spite, refusing to read comments fully and then complaining they are still NOT happy with something you stated IN the NOTES, TWICE. Maybe you should have read them. wow.
Showing respect is not that difficult. showing some empathy shouldnt be difficult. treating an artist cashier, waitress etc. like they are EQUALS and are not there just to make your life better should not be difficult. No one should have to deal with anyone being disrespectful, I am tired of seeing people being stepped all over because they ar

Fake Deviants Bullying.BullyingFake Deviants Bullying.9 months ago in Personal More Like This
A teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take out a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stomp on it and really mess it up, not to rip it. Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty it was. She then told them to tell it they're sorry. Now, even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it. That is what happens when a child bullies another child, they may say they're sorry, but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home. Copy and paste this if you are against bullying.

Rowland Is Back!For all my watchers who are railfans, here's some exciting news from the chairman of Iron Horse Enterprises, Ross E. Rowland Jr.!Rowland Is Back!4 months ago in Personal More Like This
He has recently announced this project: The Yellow Ribbon Express -> http://www.yellowribbonexpress.com/index.html
After the Greenbrier Presidential Express fail, this is Ross's newest project. Of course, it involves the 614. This is basically the American Freedom Train, except powered by the C&O 614. This train will honor America's veterans, and will tour over a three year period. There's not much info about it right now, but I'm ecstatic to find out that Ross Rowland is making a comeback after a 17 year absence from his last excursion.
Occasionally, he does work as an engineer on the New Hope & Ivyland, but this will be the first time he's ever been on the mainline since 1998.
Ross Rowland is my idol, and I will work hard to be just like he has, touring the country with those iron horses that we remember so well from stories, videos, and of

Come on people, it's not that hard!So just coming back from vacation, I received a hurtful reply on a pokeypie art http://comments.deviantart.com/1/463221767/3532989832 well this one's not mine but this comment was very hurtful. I am sick and tired of this. I am sick and tired of people hating on someone just cause of a ship they love. I can respect opinions, but something like this is very unacceptable. Guys, this battle between shippings is just plain stupid! The world of shipping is a multiverse which means anyone can get paired with anyone. Come on! It isn't that hard!

Im not trying to draw attention, I'm just sick of people drawing blood over a couple fictional characters. I mean shippings is something that will never happen in the show. People can ship whatever they want, either hetro, yuri, or yaoi. I don't care who you ship with who, as long as you don't get on my case like that bitch did. You can even ship ocxcannon! I don't care! It's not my business who you like to ship. Ship whoever you

I have never found a companion who was so companionable as solitude.
Henry David Thoreau
By :icontechgnotic: techgnotic
I I always thought of Thoreau’s comment as simply a word game — clever but ultimately false at its core. A Valentines Day without a Valentine means being alone and alone means being unhappy. It’s taken many years to finally understand the truth in Thoreau’s words. We are never so alone as when in the company of loving family and friends, our Valentine companion held tight in our arms – but knowing we are lost, unfulfilled in our dreams and visions, and untrusting in our own inner counsel. Now I hope to one day seek companions

My rant on exporting non-British engines to SodorHey everyone. I just wanted to get this out of my head since I'm tried of everyone complaining about this new upcoming Thomas special that's coming next year called "King of the Railway".My rant on exporting non-British engines to Sodor3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Now I'm not gonna rant about the main idea and why it's in a medieval setting, mostly because it's just too early to judge what it's about.
The main thing I wanna talk about is about bringing non-British engines on Sodor.
This whole thing started I believe during around either Season 10 or 12 of the show when Hit wanted to use new ideas for new characters, and it pretty much started when this one character named Hank came into the series. Around that time, nobody complained a whole lot about Hank. Then when "Hero of the Rails" came, we got Hiro, a D51 Japanese locomotive, and Victor, a Cuban NG engine. However, unlike Hank, Hiro pretty much got a lot of mixed receptions fro the fans (eg. being the first engine on Sodor). Then the Logging Locos came in, ans blah blah blah, everyone hated them, You get

Things have changed oh so very much... it's almost gotten to the point where nothing is like it used to be. I am not complaining, but the changes have taken me by surprise.
I knew, honestly, I couldn't see my life continuing in all of the ways that it was, but I wasn't expecting such changes to really occur without time to prepare to catch myself. It went from really simple things to rather large things being changed, and though I normally didn't complain, I actually do wish I could make some things go back to how they were.
So many things in my life are new right now, it's pretty surprising! Again, I'm not complaining, but it's so odd to see so many new things enter and exit my life all at once.
I'm actually kind of confused about some of these things, I mean, sure, I usually do these

Somehow, there's a hacker lurking around here who not only changes the name of users around here, but he also posts a journal entry claiming that you'll commit suicide, and he'll troll with the same journal entry by adding inappropriate comments! He'll even add insult to injury by writing naughty comments on your page, and add a crude drawing of a male's private parts! If he reads this, he'll probably think twice before hacking! Spread the word, and stop this evil hacker before you become his next victim!
Apparently, he's targeted a user formerly named kronosfactor52, renamed him TruePhazonianForce, posted a similar journal entry on his dA page, and added harsh comments to it!

Bigfoot Model A Mail Truck is the Stuff of LegendsBy Zach DoellBigfoot Model A Mail Truck is the Stuff of Legends5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Picture this: it’s the mid 1930s, you’re a rural mail deliveryman, and your day just got a lot harder thanks to two feet of overnight snowfall. What to do, what to do? Well in the case of Montana resident Milton Hill, you could turn a Ford Model A cabriolet into a rough-and-tumble off-road mail truck.
As you’ve surely guessed, this is Hill’s Model A conversion. It was built in 1936 by fellow Montanan Roman Chupp, it faithfully delivered the mail through thick and thin, and 79 years later it is up for sale on eBay. Can’t say you’ll run into one of these everyday.
A bit of backstory then. According to its owner, the Ford Model A was manufactured in June 1930, and carried out its first six years of existence as any other Model A cabriolet does – that is until Milton Hill bought the Ford. When times got tough, Hill supplemented his farming income by delivering the rural mail, and as such he needed a vehicle that could actually get him
