Ford Reintroduces The 1965 Mustang!If all you wanna do is ride around, the classic convertible can be yours for $15,000.Ford Reintroduces The 1965 Mustang!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Ford Motor Co. will soon sell brand-new 1965 Ford Mustangs for just $15,000 each. The only hitch: There's some assembly required.
As part of its Ford Reproduction business, Ford revealed today it had approved a new stamping of the steel bodies for first-generation Mustang that buyers could then build into their own 1964 1/2 through 1966 Mustang, using whatever engine, axles, interior and other parts they can find on their own.
The first-generation Mustangs rank as America's most-restored vehicle, and the cottage industry of reproduction parts has grown to where it's possible to build a Mustang just as it would have appeared on the showroom floor in the mid-1960s, down to the pushbutton AM/FM radio.
Ford says the new body shell built by California-based Dynacorn has been improved only slightly with modern welding techniques and rustproofing, and comes out of the crate nearly ready for paint and
Good or Bad thing?Is it a good or bad thing when you seriously start missing your friends and deeply regret and argument? Because I was looking at the pictures on my phones, the pictures of us on the last day of school with our shirt pockets in our hands because we ripped them off and we were hyper, the one with us on a feild trip and we were pond dipping, and me and digeh were acting like Adolf Hitler and me and Stuff were pond dipping together and pound shit loads of creatures, when we went pond dipping in another more local place on another feild trip and a guy called Sean fell in and we were laughing our heads off, and we caught shit loads of lavae. And in all those pictures, even the ones we had no idea were being taken, we were laughing with eachother and having fun, and it reminded me of the time we were all really close and had great times. Ecspecially when we were chasing some boys all over the school because they're terrified of us!Good or Bad thing?2 years ago in Personal More Like This

April 26thSo I was gone, more or less, for quite a while, occasionally sneaking in and doing my thing... but I am back, with a vengeance now that I have steady internet. I apologize for the number of sudden submissions - my voice was quiet for so long that now I just want to scream! For the few new people I've picked up recently, I do appreciate the watch. I hope nobody takes offense if I do not add them back for the time being... while I have managed to read through all the submissions I missed in my absence, I've decided to dive into the community in other ways. I have been helping with two groups for the last year, but my community involvement needs to be stepped up a bit. It's time to start giving back a little of what dA has given me all these years. I'm hoping that some of you will chose to join us over at #To-Our-Family - please check out our first prompt here: http://to-our-family.deviantart.com/jApril 26th2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Spams on deviantARTI recently noticed that some deviations are spammed by newly-registered accounts, linking to scams surveys.Spams on deviantART1 year ago in Personal More Like This
If you happen to see a similar comment as saw in example below, do not go to the linked content.
Due to this recurring problem since few days, I temporary deactivated the comments on my Toybox for Windows 7 visual style for avoiding more flood after several spams posted in the comments.
The other big problem in the same category is that a hacker steal some visual styles randomly, repackage them with malwares or links to malicious contents, and doesn't allow the possibility to post comments on the concerned stolen deviations.
If you see that my theme has being recently 'resubmitted' in the Customization > Skins & Themes category by someone else, please don't download it for your safety. ♥

German anti-Polonism still being stronghttp://comments.deviantart.com/4/16741803/3098857108German anti-Polonism still being strong7 years ago in Personal More Like This
" Poland are sometimes simply what you are! Polanken stupid! Can not say anything and just simply accost go! Something does not need you! "
This is how certain Germans want to keep friendly relationships with their Eastern neighbour. The funniest is, that the author of this statement is German international socialist - a person, who should despise racism and hatred. Obviously he mistook national socialism with international socialism. So stupid that amusing.
Seems old habits are hard to weed out.
Linux/Ubuntu and Razer mouse together? Why not!Razer creates good mouses, but unfortunately their driver (Razer Synapse) is not available for Linux. So we can't use it for binding additional keys or change sensitivity (the default sensitivity in Razer is too fast for me), but Linux has one very powerful and great thing - Xorg. Using few commands you can completely change your input configuration.Linux/Ubuntu and Razer mouse together? Why not!4 months ago in Personal More Like This
1. Get our mouse name
First thing we have to do is look out how our device is named in our system. We can use command xinput.

So! I'm ready for the last part of school... probably the most intensive one, probably will push my health even futher to the limits... But my mind is set to this purpose that, even though it's gonna be hard as hell, I need to push trough. I'll never quit fighting this... There was a reason why I chose this path in the past... I need to see for myself whats truely out there... I need to trust my judgement a bit more..
I'm also planning to confront certain people from the past... I'm still going to wait a little bit longer, just to make sure that this new decision isn't an impuls, but jeah... I need to clean things up in my head. and if a direct confrontation is going to be the answer, just so I might be able to answer a few questions... I must do so...
so! As you perhaps have seen, the Elemental dragons have been a huge succes! I'm planning to make more series! heck, If I'd make some more, I can make a "go fish" card deck!

Notes on Character DesignI received the question pictured below at my tumblr blog. In case it's useful to anyone here, I decided to go ahead and use this otherwise dormant journal to share the article I put together in response.Notes on Character Design2 weeks ago in Personal More Like This
Character design and drawing are tome-sized topics and even if I had all the answers (I don't - I have a lot to learn), I'm not sure I could communicate them effectively. Here are some thoughts an ideas that might help, though.
First, some general things...
Let some of that anxiety go. This isn't a hard science. There's no wrong way, no rigid process you must adhere to, no shoulds or shouldn'ts except those you designate for yourself. This is one of the fun parts of being an artist, really - have a heady good time with it.
- Be patient.
A design is something gradually arrived at. It takes time and iteration and revision. You'll throw a lot of stuff away, and you'll i

Human Stupidity at its finestAlbert Einstein is believed to have said those quotes:Human Stupidity at its finest3 months ago in Personal More Like This
1) " Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the universe. "
2) " The difference between genius and stupidity is; genius has its limits."
3) " Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving."
4) " Anyone who has never made a mistake has never tried anything new. "
5) " Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school. "
6) " Great spirits have always encountered violent opposition from mediocre minds. "
Those, who read my previous journal entries, may remember me focusing attention at certain foolish people, who think making fun out of human tragedies deserves common approval. Especially since those foolish people come from a nation, which has long tradition of behaving in a way sane people would consider as inappropriat

nostalgia SO HARD
fffffffff they even play the old promos and commercials! The programming alone got me in a nostalgia fit but seeing the old promos I knew so well as a teen just made me explode X_X
Ohhhh the days of Toonami how I miss thee so
this live channel though makes me so happy ;__; I just watched the DBZ movie Deadzone and was suckered into a glee of nostalgia that made my semi crappy week feel awesome (and oh how I miss Goku's voice in the Ocean/old dub of DBZ)
I am sooo gonna have this Ustream channel up while I work whenever it is playing anime or Edd Ed n Eddy T^T
... Nostalgia is a fecking awesome feeling
PS when I watch things online I like to stick to legit sources such as CrunchyRoll and Netflix... and I am not sure if this is a legit site BUT it has content on it you cannot buy, like the Toonami promos, and it is live programming, you cannot download it or even rewind or pause soooo *shrug (and I actually OWN most of what I

At the beginning of the week, the dT team worked on improving our internal development tools to increase efficiency. Then, on Wednesday, we let any staff members at the retreat pitch fun and exciting ideas for deviantART features that could be built in two days. After each feature idea was pitched, everyone from dT chose which projects they'd like to work on. Throughout the year, engineers primarily work on projects that are assigned to them, so sometimes it's important to turn the tables and let them choose projects in which they're most passionate and excited about.

The Serenely Powerful Art of `yuumei
In the top half of an hourglass, a polar bear and her cub perch perilously atop a wedge of melting ice, its dripping water becoming the "sand" that is inexorably drowning an urban couch potato figure in the hourglass's bottom chamber. The beautiful yet arresting digital painting is "Countdown" by `yuumei and it is currently one of the most popular pieces on deviantART. It is "archetypal yuumei" in its perfectly balanced blending of a striking lyrically beautiful visual with an underlying urgent social or political message.
Her specialty is digital art in an anime style, but she often employs traditional watercolors and other elements. Her cause is saving and preserving what's left of the Earth's wildlife and its environment; she donates large portions of profits from her artworks to a host of wildlife and environmental organizations and urges all deviants and others to do the same. But what has really been her stand-out achievem
