Lost between hell and paradise
There is something about a forest in its living, breathing oneness that gives it an aura of actual sentience.
Its as if you, an intruder, have entered the woodland’s domain to hunt for its secrets to having survived for so many centuries. The forest knows you are there and offers you no help in making your way. A thousand hidden eyes observe your movements; thousands of keen nos
FoxE9BEHOLD, A REAL IE9 THEME FOR FIREFOX: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/foxe9/FoxE93 years ago in Personal More Like This
I know there are a million things that are different between the two browsers but we are not aiming on adding IE9 features or completely rearranging stuff to make it look 100% IE9-ish. We don't have the time to bother with such things. Instead, it is a theme that hopefully satisfies peoples' strange desires to make their Firefox look similar to IE9.

I know this is the Fourth Of July. I know I should write about how great America is and how we're Number One and how every other country sucks in comparison. I know I should be like every other patriotic right-wing blogger and post a music video of Lee Greenwood's Proud To Be An American or Martina McBride's Independence Day.
But I won't do that. Instead, I want to share something more thought-provoking.
The following is from the opening scene of the first episode of HBO's The Newsroom. During a political debate, news anchor Will McAvoy (Jeff Daniel) is asked what makes America the greatest country in the world. He replies by saying that it's not, and follows up with this spee

Improved DMCA Reporting System
DeviantART is dedicated to protecting our artists, and in an effort to be able to more quickly handle complaints by deviants who have had their rights infringed on, we have changed the way we receive complaints from the artist or the copyright holder.
We have now enabled artists and copyright holders to file DMCA takedown requests through an easy to use form. The DMCA is a formal notice and takedown system for copyright owners. It is not an arbitrary set of rules created by deviantART; it is a legal process which is respected the world o

Spines and Backbones
“Backbone” as a metaphor has always evoked determination, strength of character, toughness of spirit.
It is also an indicator of alignment, of being on the right track, of having everything in life in functioning order. “Breaking” one’s back means utter devastation, paralysis, losing everything. Being “spineless” is perhaps the worst insult any man would care to ever hear about himself. And then there’s the

New Username SymbolsAs part of our ongoing process to make the user experience cleaner and more intuitive, we've launched a new set of username symbols designed to help easily identify deviant-types.New Username Symbols2 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
At a glance, the new symbols are quickly recognizable. When hovering over a username symbol, a tooltip appears, providing a brief explanation of that user's deviant-type. If clicked, a modal appears, giving a brief explanation for each username symbol, with "Learn more" links that lead to more detailed explanations.
A word from Heidi:
Over the years, a few things have come to seem like deviantART mainstays. Deviant green, intricate art categorization, colorful avatars, symbols next to usernames. In our constant re-evaluation of what's best for longtime deviants and new users alike, we do sometimes need to stop and ask ourselves if a makeover for some aspect isn't overdue. Changing username symbols was one of the harder things we evaluated.

A New Wind Lifts Storytelling
First imagined as a bedtime tale for his son by Kenneth Grahame in 1908, The Wind in the Willows has remained in the top twenty children’s stories ever since. But things have been getting weird out in the Willows, as the new comic on deviantART, Weirding Willows, will attest to.
Badger, Mole, Ratty and Mr. Toad are back… but they’re joined by Alice, Frankenstein’s Monster, Mowgli, The White Rabbit, Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny as they defend the world from the Wicked Witch of the West, Doctor Moreau, the Mad Hatter, Mister Hyde and the Queen of Hearts (not to mention the flying nightmare monkeys from Wizard of Oz.)

In a 5-4 ruling, the Supreme Court upheld the "constitutionality" of the Affordable Healthcare Act including the individual mandate.
I wouldn't have minded if they only struck down the mandate and kept everything else. I have no problem with allowing young people to stay on their parents' insurance until they're 26, or preventing companies from denying coverage due to preexisting conditionsthrough the other regulations which would have raised healthcare costs are still problematic.
