As much as it may shock some people, I have stated before and am pretty open about the fact that I was once a devoted Christian. At a certain point of my life, I was even pretty radical and possibly a little fundamentalist, I was a 6 day creationist and bible literalist. However, I was always more concerned with Christian ideas of charity, caring for the poor, homeless, widows, and less fortunate. I saw Jesus as a pacifist, not a warmonger, and I put more stock in verses like "love thy neighbor" and "it is easier for a camel to pass through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven" than

None of the characters in this story belong to me
Jane crept throught the abandon house, Her machetes held tightly in her hands. She had a feeling like someone was watching her. She found a couch that she could use as her bed for the night, scince it was going to rain out, and she needed a place to stay. She sat down on the couch, looking at her machetes. A bit of blood covered the blades from her latest killings. She chuckled slightly, setting the blades beside her. Suddenly, a small creek echoed from the back of the house. Jane grabbed her machetes and stood up. "Whoever you are, show yourself!" Slowly, Jane started to move towards the back of the house, her machetes held in front of her, ready to lash out. She opened the door that lead to the back of the house. Nothing was in there. Another creek sounded from upstairs. Jane walked
Catholic church, you so wackyWacky in the sense of closeted bigotry, that is.Catholic church, you so wacky4 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I watched an episode of the Australian TV Show Q&A yesterday on Youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tD1QHO_AVZA It was Richard Dawkins discussing- what else?- religion with Cardinal Pell, a senior catholic leader in Australia. While Professor Dawkins was jetlagged, he did pretty okay.
The cardinal, though...
Let's just get to the juicy bits right away: Pell comments, when asked why god would reveal himself only to a small nation of illiterate shepherds, that "they were morally an intellectually inferior" to the Egypians and Babylonians, and that "...they still are."
Up until that moment, Pell had seemed halfway sympathetic: accepting of other viewpoints, insisting that atheists too can go to heaven (a direct contradiction of biblical dogma, but the catholics aren't really big on staying consistent). Liberal, accepting, though terribly ignorant.
But it gets better.
On the question of Jews, holocaust etc, Pell manages to say that ".
Discriminated for being atheist...I just told part of my family that I opened the process to get out of the catholic church since I´m atheist and that I plan to change my name later on since it´s a religious name...my aunt said that I´m crazy and my mother...she hates me now...she isn´t talking to me and she said that I´m a deception as her son...Discriminated for being atheist...2 years ago in Personal More Like This

Who needs friendsA good enemy is better than a best friendWho needs friends4 years ago in Personal More Like This
A good enemy can't betray
A good enemy won't go away
A good enemy will be there at the end
A best friend will fail
A best friend tells you what to think
A best fiend pushes you to the brink
A best friend will bail
A good enemy pushes you forward
A good enemy testes your steel
A good enemy makes you real
A good enemy seeks no reward
A best friend makes demands
A best friend always judges
A best fiend holds grudges
A best friend won't withstand
With an enemy you know they hate you
With a friend you are not sure
To an enemy you can be true
When they run you through
It won't be from behind
A friend won't just let it end
Tell you they never liked you
Every story you tell they bend
Every wound you mend
They inflict two more
With enemies like these who needs friends

PART II FRACTAL ART & SONG LYRICS
"I can't figure out if it's the end or beginning..."
1) ART (poetry, song), even though it takes the world as its subject, seems to come from "somewhere else." Its power to create the world anew derives from this.
(This is the paradox that the ancient poets resolved with the notion of the singer's being inspired by a heavenly Muse -- a source of inspiration from a transcendent realm outside ordinary human existence.)
2) POETRY is made of previously-used materials: rhyme and meter, such traditional forms as lyric and ode, such "standard" subjects as love and death and betrayal. So no poem or song is really "new." Yet every REAL poem or song makes the world new nonetheless.
3) The way in w

First of all, thank you for over 500 watchers! Can't really imagine that there's so many people who like what I do - but I am more than thankful for that. Also, thanks to the people who made donations in order to support my work here. When I opened that donation pool, I didn't think that there would be donations any time soon. But you surprised me and I don't really know how you thank you for that. Well, except saying thank you! It's a huge motivation for me to carry on with what I do. Now I hope this journal will be a small motivation for the artists featured here, too. Hope you will continue making amazing art!

Therefore, in emptiness no form, no feelings,

No eyes, no ears, no nose, no tongue, no body, no mind;
no color, no sound, no smell, no taste, no touch,
no object of mind;
no realm of eyes

Writing For Fun and ProfitSlogging through a sea of words, trying to catch a fewWriting For Fun and Profit2 years ago in Personal More Like This
To put into order, to say something of import
It’s like trying to catch fish with your hands
In the Dead Sea, walking on stilts
(pause for mad laughter in the darkness)
Your brain aflame you have to fill this net of need
This passion to communicate the contents of your soul
Maybe not so much for others, but for yourself
It’s not your drug of choice, but still a drug
(tap, tap, tap… backspace, backspace, backspace)
The windows have all been painted black with falling stars
No, it’s night, and they really are falling like snow
And all you can think of is all the things left unsaid
How little it all means in the end
(footsteps walking, door closing, silence…)

It feels a bit uncomfortable to upload something, even if it's just a journal, on deviantART.
I can't believe I have been offline for almost 6 months now. I hope you guys and gals can still remember me..!!
First thing I want to mention, is... that I am a dog owner now!
I got a doggy from the doggy Shelter. He's a mixed breed, a Dachshund mixed with a (Welsh?) Terrier it seems. He's super adorable. He brings a lot of smiles on my face, which I missed. I missed being happy, until he came around.
His teeth are crooked, and he has a dragon-like moustache, which is why I named him lil Dragon. He's the love of my life I may or may not post a drawing of him sometime.
Change of Plans
As I have explained in my previous journal, I can't and won't be online as much as I used to be. But it doesn't mean I haven't done anything creative at all.
Currently I am work

Do not say the Holy name.Okay so some of you may have heard about the Embassy attacks. Though the worst part is that the reason these riots started was because they released a trailer for a B-Movie based on Islam's Mohammed. Now I'm not going to talk about the riots because it's obvious that they're terrible and I mean my usual, "Religion is bullshit" theme. But I wanted to talk about a strange thing about Islam and to an extent Christianity, ah hell definitely Christianity. It's the use of generic terms when referring to Yahweh. This thing bugs me because when I hear these following things,Do not say the Holy name.3 years ago in Personal More Like This

My problem with this is that it encourages misinformation. Islam's God's actual name is Yahweh, yes that Yahweh. OF COURSE YOU PRICK!!! Now in all seriousness you have to understand that many people

Lilith- Ancient name...
Darkness caresses your eternal beauty,
the moonlight bathes you with its delicate light,
soft wind kisses your pale skin,
waking up your senses with the symphony of fallen angels,
while worshipping choirs are sung at your realm,
as the crave and lust enshroud you,
bringing you to life from your immortal dream.
Mother of the fallen,
Queen of the Sheol,
Lilith is ancient verb,
Dark Goddess of velvet voice,
unholy communion of primal delight,
desecrating the innocence,
forbidden word delivered in crimson kisses,
utter bliss captivating your soul under the night.

Artist's Toolbox: Acid Dyeing (Shibori)Artist's ToolboxArtist's Toolbox: Acid Dyeing (Shibori)2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Shibori is an ancient technique which essentially refers to dyeing and shaping fabric with a multitude of techniques involving "resists" - basically tying, stitching, capping, clamping, etc. the fabric, to allow dye to get only to particular areas of the fiber. Although shibori is not only done with acid dyes, I use acid dyes in my shibori work, so that's what I'll be talking about in this article! Hope you enjoy!
The process of acid dyeing silks and wool can yield beautiful results, but it can be tricky to figure out exactly how to get a particular 'pattern' with dye due to it's rather spontaneous nature. For some, letting the dye do as it pleases will produce their favorite results, but there are times when we need to restrict the dye at least a little bit. In order to do either of these types of dyeing, tools are a necessity!

The Let's Kill Some Gays Constitutional AmmendmentCalifornia is stereotyped as the archetypal liberal bastion, and home of homosexuality. Well, considering the republican party has been in the super-minority (not just minority... they don't even have enough numbers to obstruct) for a few election cycles now, that's probably a pretty accurate description. Nevertheless, people often forget that there are pockets of uber-conservatism in California (it's a huge frickin' state).
