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
DP Meme - Day 3: Least Favorite CharacterDANNY PHANTOM 30-DAY MEME LISTDP Meme - Day 3: Least Favorite Character3 years ago in Personal More Like This

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 -

A warning against same-sex 'parenting'http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wDLkqJ3777sA warning against same-sex 'parenting'11 months 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
Art Theft in an Iphone App?!So I write to you guys today with an important issue. I recently got a new phone after my old one broke and refused to turn on. Last night I was looking into customizing my new one and decided to search for free wallpapers in the app store. This is the first result I got:Art Theft in an Iphone App?!1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Seems great, right? A super amazing rating and a whopping 100,000 free images to choose from. What I expected to find within the app was just that...free images. I expected free to use stock photos, simple graphics, custom designs by the company itself, official, public images from tv shows and movies maybe? Perhaps that was naive of me to think, given the sheer magnitude of HQ images this app boasted to have. What I did NOT expect was that not only did it have those things, it also had stolen art pieces being offered for download with no credit or permission from artists whatsoever!
I immediately recognized several popular artists from deviantart, their images

Propaganda I by Yuujakumi
The Comfort of Mindless Obedience
When is information true and useful and when is it just “propaganda?” Why in fact is an image or phrase or animated art sequence “propaganda” rather than it simply being a “lie?” What about acceptable lies that define our society as much as they degrade it - - for example commercials that obviously hype a product with untruths or political advertisements full of unachievable platitudes.

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 arguments10 months 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

TransgenderSo ... yeah ... Finally ... Im here writting this <3Transgender1 year 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

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.

My Baby Has Been Born! It's in review right now, but only for 24 hours. Other than that-My Baby Has Been Born!1 year 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.

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.

I will give you some examples.
A woman gets raped; people point out the things she did that put her at risk (skimpy dress, walking alone, provocative behaviour). A girl hits her brother; the parents point out to him the things he did that put him at risk (got into her personal space, was annoying her). And more recently, on a photo on dA of a woman who is perceived as a "sex object" in that photo, reasons offered for why she's coming across as an object instead of a person: she's looking away from the camera, she's not got much expression, she's looking too perfect, almost plastic, and so on.
Wherever you look, in today's world, you will see people making excuses for the guilty parties. In all the above examples, the real problem is with the perpetuator. In the first scenario, the problem is with the rapis
