Tiny Rant. . . . .I'm so sick of hearing about this issue of abortion. It's needlessly complicated. The way I look at it is this: If you don't approve of abortion, then don't have one.Tiny Rant. . . . .4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I honestly try to look at the arguments from the pro-life point of view, but none of them make any sense to me.
What if the aborted fetus could have cured cancer? What if the aborted fetus could have become a serial killer?
Life begins at conception, and abortion is murder. If so, then why aren't you out there screaming about fertilized eggs used for in vitro fertilization being thrown away is murder?
It's dangerous! Abortion done right has a higher survival rate than going through with a pregnancy does, and making abortion illegal would only force women to undergo even more dangerous procedures.
I'm just sick of it. So here's my advice, because I'm cranky.
Stop being arrogant. Stop telling people how they should live their lives up to YOUR standards. Stop prea

Okay guys, the contest is now OVER so that means no more entries! I would have updated this journal on the actual end date but I was too busy getting hopelessly lost in Buffalo with 3 of my friends and didn't get back until late last night. So I will judge. Eventually. Really soon. But there are kids here till Saturday and all this jazz so I don't know when exactly. Please don't ask.

About Furries and AnthropomorphismBack in my writing class last semester I wrote a 20+ page paper about Furries and I have just now felt inspired to relay some of what I have learned through rigorous studying to those who may be confused about Furries and who may be wondering if they themselves are a Furry or not and what defines a Furry. I feel that my descriptions are fairly accurate and if I am wrong then I apologize and will listen to others' perspectives on the matter. I hope though that I can help some of you though, so here we go!About Furries and Anthropomorphism2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Furry: This is a very broad term and has many definitions, but generally Furries are defined by creating or being interested in anthropomorphic art. However, this is not just what can make one Furry. Furries also have fursonas, create and wear fursuits, associate and participate in the Furry Fandom, and attend various Furry conventions. A single individual Furry may or may not do all or few of these things, but all Furries do share a love for anima

CPDA Official Stance on the DPRKTo Whom It May Concern,CPDA Official Stance on the DPRK2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The Communist Party of DeviantART no longer recognizes the Democratic Peoples Republic of Korea as a legitimate Socialist state, Communist movement, and Proletarian cause. For decades, the leading philosophies of North Korea have been Juche and Songun, both of which are incompatible and contrary to the aims and ideals of Marxism. Songun alone, being a "military first" philosophy, speaks for the North's abandonment of the workers movement. Other evidence of North Korea's abandonment of any Socialist aims include the removal of Marxist references from that nation's constitution.
Not only has the North abandoned the proletarian struggle for which we all stand, it has time and again abused the workers and peasants to the benefit of the military. The Kim dynasty, truly a neo-monarchical institution if ever there was one, is also being charged with gross Crimes Against Humanity by the United Nations. While prosecution of Kim Jong-un or other DPRK

As many of you know, I'm leaving for college at the end of the summer and will most likely not have as much time as I used to to browse DA and hang out with you people. So, as a little going away gift, I might be holding a contest but only if I get enough people to join it.
For first place prize alone, I have 2,000 points to give and still have the points coming in for second and third place as well as other ideas. With that in mind, how many of you are interested in joining? The contest would start after I graduate high school late in June.

IdolizationIdolization is a strange and dangerous thing.Idolization2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Yet we all do it. Either aware or unaware.
It all starts when we see an artist here whose work we like a lot.
Most of us have been there. Seeing the work of an artists that hits a soft spot in you, for whatever reason that might be.
You admire it, but at the same time you feel sad because you realize your level is still miles away from this artist, and you will probably never be able to do the same.
But despite everything, you start following this person. And you keep following him.
Because somewhere deep in your soul, you hold the believe --or rather, hope-- that when you watch it long enough, it will reveal it's tricks.
That it will inspire you in some way. And that you'll be able to do the same.
Unconsciously, we all build images of our idol.
It's human nature, I guess. We fill in all the blanks. The things that we don't know from this person.
Because an idol isn't a person anymore at that point. It has become an ico

Louder Than a Bomb Poetry Slam
In 2013, Elocutionists will be hosting its first spoken word competition, dubbed 'Louder Than a Bomb' (named after the Chicago Poetry Slam of the same name). The competition will consist of writers either having their work performed to their specifications by readers or representing themselves in the competition with their own recordings. There may also be the possibility of two categories to enter: a category for individual slam poets and another for groups. If you are not aware of what a poetry slam is, here is a quick definition and rundown of some basic, universal rules:
A poetry slam is a competitive event in which poets perform their work and are judged by members of the audience. Everyone who signs up has the opportunity to read in the first round; the lineup for subsequent rounds is determined by the judges' scores. Though rules vary from slam to slam, the basic rules are

Turtles Production Shut DownVICTORY!Turtles Production Shut Down4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Paramount has shut down pre-production on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot over "script problems".
Translation; Paramount realised that if they continued down the path Bay was going, fans would probably burn their studios to the ground.
With luck (and a dollop of common sense) the project will be shelved altogether and the IP left fallow until competent directors/producers are brought on board.

BABY LIONS - photos! But I am ill now :(Hi people!BABY LIONS - photos! But I am ill now :(4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yesterday I went to ZOO Olomouc with my great friend amrodel - she has never been to this ZOO and because it is one of my the most favorite animal facilities, I really wanted to show her! And because amrodel is a lion lover and because baby lions were born in Olomouc, we could not have a better opportunity to meet! It is always a pleasure to see :devamrodel and we really had fun. It was fantastic to watch whole lion family - father imon was so desperate, because his babies wanted to play with his tail! He really seemed very unhappy about it. But we had fun.
Thank you for great meeting and for a great present (amrodel gave me a printed version of her famous and beautiful photo of my beloved wolf Lobo), friend
In the ZOO, I saw also something which took my breath away - I will show you later!
But after I got back, I got some leight gastric problems. I had them also today, but it was very far from anything serious. But during this eve

Not so good news + animals from ZOO Brno - PHOTOSHi!Not so good news + animals from ZOO Brno - PHOTOS4 years ago in Personal More Like This
I am still very tired. I am really not used to waking up early, doing something for all 8 hours and then getting home late. I usually fall asleep very soon. I usualy wake up between 12 PM - 4 AM and I am able to just post one photo for dA. Or I wake up at 5 AM, which prevents me from doing anything - it is too late to exercise or to write something, but it is too soon to wake up. So I usually try to sleep. The worst thing is waking up at 6 AM - it is VERY early, but at the same time, it is not enough to fall asleep again. So as a result, it makes me very tired in the evening and this whole circle goes on and on.
I did not even have time to write any journal...
Maybe nobody noticed
Of course I did not ,,defend" my final thesis *facepalm* it is all my fault. I need to write it once again, I have the very last attempt to rewrite it *sad face*
I need to get used to my new regime, so I can exercise again.
I wanted to move at least through the weekend, but I spend it rather with gre

Update to deviantART Mobile
In October, we launched the new mobile site to everyone, and while we stand by its design and functionality, we received valid statements regarding older devices not being compatible with the new layout. With this in mind, we've brought back the old mobile site for older devices, with the option to switch to one or the other depending on your preference.
For said devices, a banner will appear on the main deviantART page that says, "Touch here to switch to deviantART's legacy mobile site," which will reload the page with the old mobil

Here's what he wrote:
I am the owner of this shop and all these images are bought or made by me and I take full responsibility for all of them.
Your image is on PUBLIC DOMAIN, you should know that and do something about it.
Made by you? Public domain? What? Since when?
When will the lies end?
Feel free to go through his ebay store gallery and see how many other artists you can find that are apparently "public domain" and "made by him".

What is it?
I uploaded the raw clips my mother took from my 2nd horseback riding lesson to Youtube. I want to see who can make the best edited video out of them! If you need inspiration, search people on Youtube such as, 'xPaintTheSkyx,' 'TaylorSpurgeon,' etc.
The video has to be at least 30 seconds long.
You can use any video editing system.
You don't have to post it to Youtube, but it'd be nice if you could.
You have to use my clips only, no others.
You can use any song you'd like.
Don't just put a song on the clips and submit it. You have to actually put some effort into it. I want them to look good.
August 1, 2012.
If I get a certain number of entries before the deadline, I'll close it.
