nobody makes art. there is just stuff.i feel the urge to publish my latest thoughts on the excessively tired topic of what is art and what isn't.nobody makes art. there is just stuff.3 years ago in Personal More Like This
i deem it as a tired topic because it doesn't fucking matter what is art and what is not.
further, i feel like most people's ideas on what art makes art is just backward.
nobody makes art.
nobody makes art.
people simply create stuff they want to create. maybe it's art in their mind.
other people who consume any sort of such creation may deem it art or not in their minds.
whatever anybody has in their mind about any such creations doesn't make nor change those creations.
a painting, photograph, sculpture or song doesn't give a flying fuck whether you consider it art or not.
it won't feel sad if you don't, and it won't change itself in an attempt to become art in your mind.
it is what it is, and that's stuff.
locations don't make art either.
there are museums and galleries that are as full of garbage as they are full of art.
there are also basements, attics and garages fill
A warning against same-sex 'parenting'http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wDLkqJ3777sA warning against same-sex 'parenting'1 year ago in Personal More Like This
When it comes to parenting, genders do matter. And I'll say why:
Children are not only one of the greatest gifts from God, they are also the heart of marriage. It is important for them to be trained in the right direction, the way of the Lord. The Bible says in Proverbs 22:6 "Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it." But in today's world, they are forced to watch this horror happening in their lifetime, just like what happened to that little boy who got sexually abused by the two homosexual 'dads'. (http://christiannews.net/2013/07/06/homosexual-sentenced-to-40-years-in-prison-after-offering-son-to-international-pedophile-ring/ )
At worse, they are being taught that this sodomy practice is okay, when clearly it's not. Its abnormal, and this false teaching will lead children to Hell. And each child deserves a mother and a father, and gay parenting de

I hope none of you are rabid fans of her because my least favorite character is none other than the Goth girl herself: Sam Manson.
Wait, let me rephrase that. My least favorite character is Season Three Sam.
Season One and Two Sam is by no means my personal favorite character and I often have a very mixed view on her, but she's far more tolerable. Before I bitch on about why I can't stand Season 3!Sam, I need to talk about her Season 1+2 version. Sam 1.0, you could say.
Sam is a fourteen-year-old Goth environmentalist and keen vegetarian. She is incredibly outspoken and pushy concerning her beliefs and issues - to the detriment of both her friends and everyone around her -

I wish to buy for my baby boy a memorial statue to place in my garden on his grave.
I'd like to buy THIS ONE but I don't have enough money (as always ) so, I'm asking you all if you can help me to earn (and not to beg) the money I need to make this wish come true.
Here you are the link of my commissions info:
I need minimum 30$ but you are not required to choose the most expensive commission, the union is strength (and cheapish)!
P.S. If not interested or cannot afford a commish, please help me by spreading the voice by favving and sharing this journal wherever you want.
Thank you so much to everyone.
The worst gay rights argumentsAs the title implies, I'm going to look at the "gay-rights" arguments that really scrape the bottom of the barrel. I hope that whatever side of the debate your on, you can agree that these arguments don't hold water. To emphasize this, I'm going to try to sound as neutral as possible.The worst gay rights arguments1 year ago in Personal More Like This
1. Separation of Church and State is in the Constitution. So you can't use Christian morality to outlaw same-sex marriage.
This argument stems from a misunderstanding of what Separation of Church and State is. The phrase appears nowhere in the Constitution. It was in a letter from Thomas Jefferson to a church that was worried Jefferson would force his Deism on the churches. Jefferson assured them the first amendment would protect their freedom. So the question is, what does the first amendment do? It prevents the government from establishing a state religion. Outlawing same-sex marriage does not establish a religion. It doesn't for
My Baby Has Been Born! It's in review right now, but only for 24 hours. Other than that-My Baby Has Been Born!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
My first novel is done. And it's something I'm very proud of.
It will be on sale through Amazon in a day or two, for $8.00. The Amazon CreateSpace was an extensive process (it was like my book was being interrogated), but it was definitely worth it-and other authors have accumulated Best Seller status through Amazon's free self-publishing service. So here I go. Remember my story 'Drive'? That's the one. I hope you'll buy it and enjoy it, as it was taken straight out of my little heart.
Amazon summary: Hybel City has declared war against those deemed to be outsiders. In a city drenched by death and devastation, Larron Bennex struggles to protect his best friend, Lain Sinastra. Hybel's people are up-in-arms against those they call Maelvores, and Lain's in constant danger of becoming one of the city's targets. Will Larron uncover the truth behind the city's relentless pursuit of

As inspiration for your tale of horror or mystery or special wonder, Clive is providing the prompts of his own paintings that are to be your starting points.

I might has accidentally deleted all of the requests.. Oops.. I'll try to get them all but I can't promise. If I miss you please feel free to yell at me. Anything that has (R) next to it is already requested and will be my top priority.
Since everyone asks for them at random pages and it's starting to become harder and harder to find the requests I just thought that if you put them here it'll be a bit easier. Just put them in the comments like normal.
**FOR CUSTOM REQUESTS (Non Pokemon sprites, OC, Etc) PLEASE GIVE ME AN IMAGE/GIF AND WHAT COLOR YOU'D LIKE THE CURSOR (the pointer part) COLOR TO BE**
Most Shines will be late since the website where I get my gifs from doesn't have every single shiny Pokèmon

Italian Masters of Horror
Zombie by liliesformary
Giallo is Italian for yellow… and Horror
In the wake of the real life horrors meted out on Italians during World War II, brutalized by Mussolini and then by Nazi occupation and then having their country used as one great battleground chessboard between Nazis and the invading U.S. and Allied forces, there was for a long time little appetite for horror in movies. It wasn’t until 1956 that the first genuine horror film (a vampire story) was produced and released. It bombed, soundly rejected by the public. The film would be of little note

Yep, that’s right, today’s festive film is based on the famous Christmas song, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer! And I’m sure that a lot of you are aware of the 1960’s Rankin Bass classic based around him, and it has been known as probably the best Rankin Bass Christmas special. And while I never saw the Rankin Bass Christmas specials as a child – the only real Rankin Bass film I’ve ever seen is The Last Unicorn, and as for that animated The King and I..... Uggh. But still, I give the original credit for being cherished enough to be held so dearly. So, what a better film for me to review today then Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, which is sure to be - *sees the film* This is hand-drawn animation, what the hell?
What IS THIS? From the 1990’s?! This isn’t Rankin Bass, thi
TransgenderSo ... yeah ... Finally ... Im here writting this <3Transgender2 years ago in Personal More Like This
First of all, I will explain a little all this .. whole process and how many times had thought of doing this ...
Before I birth, my father always wanted a boy in the family .. (at the end we were 3 girls) I been the first to born, so...my father had insisted on treating me like a boy, football ... cars ... I think the only Barbies I had were for my grandmother, even that I never got to play with them a while. Finally I grew up with these hobbies, especially football, and my behavior wasn't very feminine, in fact, I always was called "tomboy" and I ignored them...yes, I was in my "yupi" world you know x'D... and later it wasn't only football.. basketball too. I wasn't very good at school x'D
The fact is that at age 14, I lost my "father". Since I was little I was always very close to my grandparents and i live in his house since then, my parents and I have never been so close, my grandparents are my "parents" .. and .. when I lost

Hey, don't do anything I wouldn't do...and since I use other deviant's stock in my other account, I follow their rules like I hope you will follow mine. Rather simple really:
- Credit me on your dev.
- Note me on my account's front page, the stock may be deleted when year end packs are created.
- No reposts in 'specialized' stock accounts without permission.
- If all you're gonna do is apply a color overlay or filter...don't waste your time.
- Any use outside of DA is to be discussed first. Sketches are all good (even class assignments), and I'd like to see, if you feel it came out rather well.
- Prints have the green light...and you better appreciate any money I make for you.
- On requests, I make no promises, but what does it hurt to ask, eh.
- Please, no retouches. While a lot of work can go into a cosmetic retouch, I am not posting stock to see it shown back to me magazine ready.
