bucket bucket bucket bucket bucket bucket bucketWhat's that word for someone? When they're too pure to be a sinner, but too malignant to be a saint?

All my life I've sat on this fence, watching the waves crash this way and that, and the boards beneath me are starting to erode away, and I feel like I'm going to have to make the choice soon, one way or another. The wall is getting shaky, and soon I'll have to jump.
In theory, I could pick the shore. Seems nice. Warm... but really, it's structure is no more secure than the ocean... it has the illusion of that protection, but if anything were to befall it... even the slightest douse of rainfall... it would slide and collapse every which way. In the end, you're still not really getting what you're paying for. You're like everyone else. Clinging to an unstable structure, keeping to routine, and praying it doesn't rain. I had
LoveA lot of folks think that love takes time. They're the same people that if you ask if they've been in love will answer "I don't know."Love3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Trust me. If you've been in love, you will know. And if you don't know, you haven't been in love. Love can happen within weeks. And there;s a total difference between someone you really really like, and when you cross the line.
I crossed the line last night. Me and Anatol were lying on the couch, and all of the sudden, he got up, grabbed his guitar, kneeled over me and continued to play one of the most beautiful finger picking songs I have ever heard. He's freaking amazing. He starts off with these weird chords and ends up spanish picking and doing all sorts of crazy stuff. Like, this song was AMAZING. When he was done, he just looks at me and smiles and I'm like "Dude, what WAS that? " And he just puts his guitar down and says "I was just makin' stuff up. It was for you."
You should have seen my face man. I looked like I'd just seen Jimmy Page or somet
sadsadsadthis motel room is silent. except for the hum of electricity. the lights outside are red. the trashy red tube kind that runs along the ridges of the rooftop. in front it says MOTEL in red. and a sign welcoming truckers. sometimes i sit on a balcony corner of iron bars that overlooks the parking lot and the restaurant across from me. there's a spider who built his web in between a stone column and one of the bars. he looks like a little light brown orb spider. he only comes out at night to sit in the middle of his web. waiting for the wind to blow something his way maybe. i don't know. i don't know what goes through his little spider head. but i like to wonder. and sing songs about him when i go out there to smoke in the morning and at night. it's become a habit. i wonder if he can hear my tiny voice over all the loud traffic and giant trucks driving through the parking lot. he probably doesn't hear at all.sadsadsad3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Some stuff in the works, other thoughts.So, as most of you know, the Compozerz finally hit the big page 1-0-0, and I am so stoked!Some stuff in the works, other thoughts.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have some other things I am planning right now, which I'll share shortly here.
I want to first take a moment to thank all of you who stuck with me through that last big hiatus. And who stuck with me while I finished up that last page. It took a long time because, as I said in the comments, I really wanted it to be a special one. Cityscapes are not a strong suit of mine. I don't particularly enjoy drawing buildings. But I made myself do it, I felt like it had to be done for that particular page. And as many comic artists will tell you, you should learn to draw backgrounds of all kinds. Even if you hate drawing them. Most comickers I know shy away from drawing backgrounds. I totally understand, I do that myself. But my feeling is, if you are going to make a comic, you need to know how to draw just about anything. You never know what kind of situation your characters may get into.
Interesting Date TonightSo I was walking around down town and this kid was checking me out like hardcore. I was like "This kid can't be from Harewood. Harewood kids are subtle about their check-outs. Very subtle." Also, this kid looks like a loser with shaggy hair and a red sweater... you know, the kids who are always outcasts at school. I like these kids. These kids are my friends.Interesting Date Tonight3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I smiled and waved and then I left the mall, sat down to eat my couscous burrito, and he approached me.
"Hey, I was wondering where you got that necklace."
And I was like
"Oh, I got it up town a bit. Why, do you recognise it?" (Thinking... is this kid a Thelemist, cuz that would be cool)
And he's like "Yeah, I recognise it from a show."
Me: "Oh what show?"
Kid: ...Well, I hate to sound like a nerd, but Yu-Gi-Oh.
Me: *laugh* 'Oh, whatever Yu Gi Oh was awesome. Pokemon is still better though.'
Kid:' I totally agree. But Yu Gi Oh is the cool thing at my school.'
Me: (oh god this kid is like 13 and plays YuGiO
Comin' out post.Hi, everyone. After a fair bit of deliberation, I've decided to make an official "coming out post". "Coming out post" is a phrase which here means "describing my quote-unquote 'sexual orientation' in a way that proves I'm okay with it".Comin' out post.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I say "quote-unquote" because that's really what it is. I'm asexual. Which can also be translated to "not having a sexual orientation". In my case, that's what it's like, anyway. I've always been basically aware that I'm asexual, on some level or another, and I've always been somewhat okay with that. I am more okay with it now.
But the thing is, I'm an aromantic asexual. Or I am now. That was the part that was giving me trouble, anyhow. The reason there has ever been anything resembling confusion about that is because, some years ago, I was actually really thoroughly in love with somebody. I was sexless then, as I am sexless now.
Thing is, I'm no longer in love (although strong desire to see that person comes up every so often - I don't see them very of

For an amazing woman...Ten years ago today......my Great Grandmother passed away. I was only 6 at the time but it only took 6 short years for this amazing woman to have a MAJOR impact on my life. This beautiful woman took care of her husband who was a World War II Vetren, college english professor, and rancher who had developed M.S. and slowly lost the mobility of his legs. (He passed away 3 years before I was born sadly) She devoted every waking minute of her life to family and life and just having fun. She was the kindest person I have ever known and the strongest. In the short time I knew her I had never once saw her angry or sad. She always had a smile on her face even when she got sick. This woman taught me to be selfless and put others before myself. She taught me to be who I AM and not who other people wanted me to be. She was and is the most amazing, smart, funny, loving, caring, and beautiful woman I have ever met.For an amazing woman...2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Manga/Anime Digital Gallery FeatureWelcome to Digital Manga/Anime! This is an article that will be highlighting each section of the digital art subcategory within Manga/Anime with a little about each category and then some wonderful features for you to enjoy!Manga/Anime Digital Gallery Feature3 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Firstly, what is “digital art”? It is artwork created via the use of digital media such as on a computer with a tablet or mouse. There are 6 digital art subcategories within the Manga/Anime gallery:
Digital M/A: DrawingsDigital M/A: PaintingsDigital M/A: OekakiDigital M/A: Manga Digital M/A: Vector Digital M/A: 3D
Manga/Anime > Digital Media > Drawings
So, what is the ‘Drawings’ category all about? Digital drawings are, basically, drawings that have been done with digital media (i.e., on a computer). The variety within the category is huge, simply because there are so many ways to draw and/or colour digitally and it is the most popular of the
a treegot in a fight with a friend.a tree2 years ago in Personal More Like This
thought about suicide. thought about what dante's inferno said about suicides turning into trees. and i thought about what lisa said her husband told her in a vision when she flat-lined in the hospital. that when you kill yourself, you have to stay. and watch the lives of those around you unfold without being able to do anything.
so much like a tree. i've always thought what a lonely and sad life it might be to be a tree. then it occurred to me. what if all the trees are dead people? what if suicides really do grow into trees?
it made me think of the palm tree in our front yard when i was seven and we lived on hart st.
before i even knew we were moving, i had a dream. and the dream showed me the house. with it's salmon color paint and a palm tree, eye level with my bedroom window, upstairs. the next day my dad came into the living room and announced that we were moving. i was so excited. i asked if it was two stories and had a palm tree in the front yard a
Contest update: Faboosh Wizard CategoryA few people requested that I add a"Faboosh Wizard" category.Contest update: Faboosh Wizard Category3 years ago in Personal More Like This
I decided to take you all up on that offer and do it, but there's gonna be some guidelines.
It's FABOOSH wizard. You gotta find a way to make your costume noticeably related to Jimmy Page. Pose with a guitar or a violin bow... or do the pout... or draw the "Zoso" symbol all over your pointy hat, but make it JIMMY. If I see you dress up as just a plain old wizard and not do anything creative with it, I'm gonna be very disappointed.
So yes, the category "Faboosh Wizard" is now open for use as well, but remember, if you wanna do more than one costume, you're welcome to submit stuff into more than one category.
I just... v__v; ...just read this.So I discovered a guitarist named "Orianthi Panagaris". She's played for Santana, Michael Jackson, and several other well known bands. She's CLEARLY talented. She can CLEARLY shred a guitar. She's sort of a role-model of mine. I went online to check out some of her vids...I just... v__v; ...just read this.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
...and then.. I find a whole stream of:
"She would be the perfect female guitarist if she only had bigger tits. Other than that she's pretty good for a girl with a B cup. "
"and that is why you dont let women out of the kitchen"
"I HATE her vibrato! And pretty much everything else."
"Dumb ass cunt thinking she knows shit about Music"
"the guitar wasn't made for girls, that's why she sucks at it... :/"
HOW THE FUCK am I supposed to continue with music without fear and without reservation if... it's just... I don't even...
First of all, the guitar itself, when first developed in the baroque era,
