Venus"O'er the ache of mauve shores erotic winds billow long & deep... Her scent drips from the sky onto bare skin, bejeweling my senses like a tapestry of blushing petals besieged in rhythms of passion.... Whispers of untamed rapture beckons my lips as I descend into her gaze, unto the sea of bliss where I shall forever drown."Venus3 years ago in Personal More Like This

Dark Knight RisesI just spent my whole day(3:00pm-3:00am) in a theatre. I watched the whole Nolan Batman trilogy. It was incredible. I am so pleased and satisfied. I have nothing bad to say about The Dark Knight Rises. A true piece of art. Every loose end tied, every character appropriate, pretty much accurate story(Knightfall vs No Man's Land). Just beautiful.Dark Knight Rises3 years ago in Personal More Like This
On that note, I would like everyone to send their love to Colorado, such a tragic event. And it breaks my heart that people can't just spend time together and enjoy themselve. Very selfish.

Comics Are ArtComic-Con Journey to the Heart of The New Summer VacationComics Are Art3 years ago in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
Americans have a long summer vacation tradition of visiting the foreign capitals of the world and being sure to spend at least one day in each nation’s most iconic art museum. In Paris, we visit the Louvre. In Madrid, the Prado. In Rome, the Borghese. We feel far more comfortable in identifying the different peoples of our planet through examples of their greatest art works than we do about identifying ourselves as being represented by any one iconic “American” art museum or artist. Maybe the country is just too big for one musuem and so it has always fallen to our pop arts to carry the true visual narrative of what’s going on in the hearts and minds of the masses.

The End of the Nostalgia Critic...buuuuuuuuuut who said it's over for ThatGuyWithTheGlasses.com?The End of the Nostalgia Critic...3 years ago in Personal More Like This
As this video explains: http://blip.tv/nostalgiacritic/no-more-nostalgia-critic-6353431
I actually do support this idea to go for a new production with a studio. I was getting worried that they would runt he character into the ground and I'm rather pleased they retired the character and will do a new show, it adds variety and makes something different. While we'll all miss seeing the weekly video shows of the NC screaming for 20 minutes, I totally support Doug's decision to do something new and regardless, he left a huge impact on internet culture that will never be reversed.
Who's onboard for this idea?

Devious Journal EntryI just wondering about the prediction of ENGLAND's olympic's. If what is being said, that a type of bomb is to be exploded in order to kill thousands of innocent people and that the government knows all too well about this. I am beginning to see a horrable trend even with our own 9/11 so called bombing. That this world is at the verge of destruction. Looking back at human history, with Germany killing off so many people during such a short life span and not just jews either. A large diverse of humans were killed. Looking back at human history, GOVERNMENTS were killing off many people but it seems that now our governments are doing it on a regular bases....Devious Journal Entry3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yeppi!!! I can't wait for the end time that is predicted. I am sick of all this HATE n KILLING of children, women, n men. I am sick of seeing people starve to death while we seat back, eating our food and watching such death continue on.

i got nothing to complain about,
nothing to yawn about and nothing to cry about,
my soul's completely poured out with every second,
happiest and united, with reason of me,
and thats all that matters,
so whatsoever happens around,
whether its the pain or the agony of the world chasing around me,
if its disease or sickness, pain or words,
it passes me by, as all else,
for all i am is all that means to me,
and that, is my angel, whom im infinite gratefulest to.
Never before i have lived, for my life has started with him,
waited for him i have, always before,
and with him i was brought to the life i am
he is my life, if there only were words to put his magnificence
and what he puts me into words, but there arent any,
for im in undescribable bliss,
im beyond happiest.
I finally see, i finally feel and i finally hear,
why im here, in this world, as always after,
Rainy day, sunny day,
its always a perfect day,
with every perfect second going on,
with every breath that is

You took plastic cartoon lunch boxes to school.
You remember the craze, then the banning of slap bracelets and slam books.
You still get the urge to say "NOT" after (almost) every sentence.

Wishing I could fly away, somewhere far away where I can leave the stupid shit I have to deal with behind. I don't want to be here. I don't want to deal with this shit anymore. Somebody get me the hell out of this place. Family? How can you sit there and call yourself my mother? I'm terrified of you. I hate you. It makes me feel like a stupid little kid, but I really just want my daddy right now. Dad always make it better. You don't. You're what's wrong. Leave me alone.
Sorry to rant about it here. Ignore me, I don't care. I just needed to let off some steam and I don't feel like I can do it anywhere else.

Oct 10, 2011, 4:09:02 PM by ~squareprismish Journals / Personal I'm just listening to "Y Deryn Pur" on YouTube.
It's a song by Mary Hopkin.
It's such a short song, I'm listening to it over and over again.
I did not understand the words the first time but
Then I listened a second time and the words seemed...
When I listened the third time, I felt that somehow...
in some way I should, ought to, might, could understand
The fifth time I felt I knew the words, had spoken them,
had heard them, but it was such such such such such......
long time ago.

How to Become Popular on DeviantartSince I joined on deviantart I have been fascinated by many works.. Really nice works which have a lot of favourites and others which havent. I questioned myself why it could happen? Why works so wonderful and people so talented can be unknown in this community?How to Become Popular on Deviantart6 years ago in Art Features More Like This
So, I decided to write this article.
For it, I sent this three questions for some pop artists:
- What's the secret to become popular?
- Why do some people become popular so fast, doing ordinary art, and others which do amazing art cant be popular?
- Is there any trick to become popular? Like watching a lot of people, faving everything you can, posting a lot of journals or promoting contests?
Some of them answered me so kindly and fast, others answered me in a way kinda rude and others didnt answer..
By now, I have some ideas, some quotes and I want to show you all information I got about it.
So, lets start:
First, I must say there are several ways to become popular. To make this article, I did a
dolls are not beautifuldolls are not beautifuldolls are not beautiful3 years ago in Personal More Like This
dolls are not even accurate
dolls are nothing more than a mere abstract representation of a being. whatever the being might be
its common misconception to think that the doll repressents the perfection of the being for it doesn't. and it was never meant to. for the sake of the craftsman's skill it is nothing more than a simplification of the being
all things that give character are removed, stripped,
for they are too hard to replicate
all the ails and functions of the being are forgotten in the creation of the simple representation
for it is hoped that this ails and functions are common knowledge and will be assumed
just like when you draw an apple you leave out things due to the assumption that other viewers will think of the other apples they know.
a perfect doll is just that, a perfect simplification abstraction of the being it is meant to remind the viewer of.
and yet the human race keeps the doll as a means of beauty.
