Typing Makes Me Sound Busy
A young woman named Gerta loved making art, and practiced sculpting all day long to become the very best in all her town. But one day, she was completely stumped. She looked around her room, full of art pieces featuring mystical tortoises, sci-fi landscapes of a futuristic Titan Tower, and a portrait of Anne Frank that looked so real, you could start a conversation with it. But nothing inspired her. Had she really created everything there was to create? Depressed, she looked out her window, and made a wish on a nearby Pizza Hut for inspiration to return to her. The next morning, she sprung out of bed, and used her skill in sculpting to create the most beautiful deviation depicting lesbians recycling old toiletries anyone had ever seen. That night, she shouted out the window, "Thanks, Pizza Hut!"
TedI dream in cold bloodTed5 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
where air coagulates
and legs slip
on plastic chairs.
I like the way blond women
paint their toenails red
and wear tiny gold hoops
in their ears.
I can imagine them
on the chairs -
perfectly still as they
run out of things
to say to me.
of the same questions -
and I just make up answers -
things about my mother
and their sons,
stories not found on TV
or in their magazines.
But they leave me gifts -
mementoes, really -
rings from their toes
lips carelessly left behind
on my glasses
and hair -
clips of fake yellow
and that shade of brown
you find underneath sinks.
I keep them all...
And dream in cold blood.

the wind forgets
the shape of this land
and how the world spins,
paled with longing
to be still.
Air hung out to dry like laundry
we forgot and
the brisk taste
pooling in the fields.
The windows are drowning,
wanting only to sleep
as we watch
that tether to the sky
loosening the birds
and the tree tops
against the clouds
until it is thick
and the wet grows
like a mountain
pulling up its roots

I'm the salt
In your wound
I was made to make it hurt
But I'm myself
I'm the salt
In your wound
I used to make things heal
But I changed
What have I become
My sweetest friend?
I don't like the one I am
But it's so hard for me to change
I'm the salt
And you can't turn me into flour
Something innocent, something pure
I'm the salt, rub me in your wound
The NSA Secret Campaign to Crack Internet Securityby Nicole Perlroth, The New York Times, Jeff Larson, ProPublica, and Scott Shane, The New York TimesThe NSA Secret Campaign to Crack Internet Security1 year ago in Personal More Like This
September 5, 2013
The National Security Agency is winning its long-running secret war on encryption, using supercomputers, technical trickery, court orders and behind-the-scenes persuasion to undermine the major tools protecting the privacy of everyday communications in the Internet age, according to newly disclosed documents.
The agency has circumvented or cracked much of the encryption, or digital scrambling, that guards global commerce and banking systems, protects sensitive data like trade secrets and medical records, and automatically secures the e-mails, Web searches, Internet chats and phone calls of Americans and others around the world, the documents show.
Many users assume — or have been assured by Internet companies — that their data is safe from prying eyes, including those of the government, and the N.S.A. wants to keep it that way. The agency treats its re

I knew what was going on, since my Inspiration doesn't smoke, so, when it didn't come back as I expected, I decided to send my Will to Draw looking for it in order to bring it back to me.
It turned out to be a bad idea, since I never saw either of them again.
It's about a month now.
No need to mention how much I could use their help right now.
I tried to do things without them, but it didn't really work out... Of course I can still draw, it's not like one can lose the ability to do something when head traumas are not involved. Problem is, I'd rather wash dishes or spend the whole morning on the couch with my dog as a blanket than draw.
I know what people like to say in this cases...
"It's not art block, it's just you being lazy"
Yeah right, I'm so lazy I'd rather clean the whole house or stare the wall the whole day than do what I love the most. You're a genius, my problem is solved now, thanks.

leave me alone!
My head can't stop
Thinking about you
I'm sick of being down
Depressed and suicidal
My smile isn't always there
Stop haunting me!
I'm sick of your sweet voice
It rings in my head
When you played on my drums
Now I can't touch the sticks no more!
I wish I was perfect
The guy of your dreams
My bloody tears
They paint my cheeks
I wish I could hug you
And kiss your head
Tell you while you slept
I love for forever my dear
But those dreams
They are dead
And left for dead
My soul is evil
My heart is black
My eyes don't sparkle
And my wrists they bled
I wish my dreams wouldn't die
But after all these days
my heart its stabbed
And it won't heal completely
The dreams never leave
When the heroes are have dark times
They remember the dream and carry on
But now I see
Fairytales, They are fairytales
They can't be real
And the mermaid
She didn't kill herself
But I did, in my selfish greed

Don't give them a reason
They enjoy seeing you suffer
But in the end it's not worth the while
Their mouths are like open graves
They tell only lies
For deep inside, you're worth more than a thousand diamonds that shine
A Little Fursuit Cost PerspectiveWHY OUR COSTUMES ARE "EXPENSIVE"A Little Fursuit Cost Perspective1 year ago in Personal More Like This
I posted this info over on Tumblr, and thought others might find it interesting!
Someone just sent me a note that read:
"Seeing all the materials you guys use for your fursuits, I can really see why they're so pricey. "
Thanks for noticing! We are asked to justify our prices pretty often, or even accused of charging too much, but I think a lot of people just do not realize that there is A LOT of expense (and not just in materials), and a TON of time that goes into making each suit. And sure, lots of people plug in features to our price calculator and come out with a $3000-$7000 figure, and must be imagining us sitting around in bathtubs full of cash. Truth is, we don't make a whole lot of profit - where does it all go?
First, consumable materials. These are items that need to be bought new for each and every suit because they get completely used up in the process. This includes casting resins, sheet plastics, foam, polyfill, paint, elastic

he sought my kidneys,
sweet meat for such a famished guest -
enough to whet his appetitie
and lure him back for more.
The second time
he craved my heart,
warm as a steamed pudding,
plump and plated like a lobster -
such succulent sustenance
fit for a king
Then he envied my eyes
two orbs like oysters
brimmed with salt
or ripe olives
that he could pluck
and roll between his brittle lips.
But it was my skin
he coveted most -
that supple, quivering layer
flayed tender by his hands
breeding life so rare and warm
that he would never get to taste.

and the beautiful surround
of rugged peaks
thrusting through the soil,
knowing which direction

Take away its cleanness, and innocence
Stain that White cloth

And the bully, he thinks about his pleasure of torturing it
Either it's a piece cloth, a paper or a pen
When the bully is done, it will never be the same
The cloth is stained, the paper is ripped to pieces and the pen is broken, bleeding it's ink
The bully looks at his victims, with pride, he loves hearing their cries
Never stain the cloth
For in the end, that stain stays
Never stain the cloth
The stain, it just won't go away

curdling the milk

Trust comes easily -
flat and distended,
disturbing the dust
left growing on the porch,
pulling up the roots
rotting in clay pots.
And you just watch
dusk roll over us -

holding up the ceiling

and we will have endless conversions into the night,
exchanging profound words and infinite meaning,
and we will wind

and the universe will be ours.
I'll marry a musician

wild harmonies and
gentle melodies and our instruments
will weave themselves with our bodies
and the future will become a
symphony of swapping songs and singing ourselves
I'll marry a girl
and we will be more delicate than withering leaves
and we will be extensions
of each other; one continuous
river of soft, whispering water
that mirrors the pale sunset,
and its sparkles will dance
across our skin.
I'll marry myself
but we will be lonely;
we will sleep together but dream
of others, of those who could have been
and of those who were,
and we will be numb as the night
and cold as the bottom
