Hyvää Uutta Vuotta!Oikein hyvää ja onnellista Uutta Vuotta kaikille jäsenille kuin myös randomeille vierailijoille!
Toivottavasti kaikki on varovaisesti käsittellyt raketteja(onnistuin näkemään muutaman lentävän jo taloja päin), mutta pitämään silti oikein hauskaa.
Sairastelun takia en ole pystynyt päivittämään blogia niin kuin on ollut tarkoitus, joten syvimmät pahoitteluni siitä.
Tässä tulee kuitenkin vielä edellisen vuoden Joulukuun sankarit!
Jos sinun syntymäpäivää ei ole vielä kirjattu ylös niin lähetä joko "note" tai kirjoita tähän blogiin. Syntymävuotta ei tarvitse mainita jollei tahdo, vain päivämäärä ja kuukausi.

`LiliWrites has this contest ( http://kneeling-glory.deviantart.com/journal/November-Thankstivity-336036051 ) going on where everyone wins, but I have to say that I am with $namenotrequired here. I'm not doing it for the prizes, I'm doing it for the kindness and the positivity. For far too long I have been wallowing in my own self pity and all the sadness. It's high time I started thinking better of myself, and what better way than to say what I really am thankful for.
I am thankful for many things unrelated to deviantart, that's a certainty. But I have to say that I am most thankful for dA, really.
Sure, I love my kids and I am thankful for their unconditional love. But dA has actually turned my life around more than once.

I honestly do not have a clue who this person is, but not having a home is one of the lowest points a human can reach. It saps your energy, it takes your pride, it throws you down a dark hole and kicks you for fun once you get there. It truly hurts.
So if you can help this person out please do. If you cannot help, spread the word. You all came through and pitched in for me... let's see if we can keep this going eh?
Some Finnish music, part III just wanted to update my journal, so here comes some Finnish music for foreigners, again!Some Finnish music, part II1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Viikate ("Scythe") is Finnish heavy metal/rock band. This band happen to come from my hometown, hence they have been a familiar name to me for a long time and I have liked some of their songs very much. The world really is a small place - the drummer Simeoni has worked at a same place with my dad, so in passing we have met him in department store and even at the police station (while I was applying for ID card, he was applying for fishing licence), heh.
But a while ago I borrowed their collection album Kuutamo, kaiho ja katkeruus from my friend and I have been listening to it quite much. I like the band's eccentric style (their style is described as "rautalankametalli", which is referring to those vibes from old Finnish schlager music) and that wistful atmosphere in their music. Their insightful lyrics tell about complexity of life, containing some black humour as well. Funny how I
And a few immediate changes I am not going to require people to do the 5 star rating. Since many people have their own style and ratings go a differently depending if it is a book or a game (or anything else really), it's actually rather confusing to just to a 5 star rating. I've seen percentages, decimals, _/10, and _/5. Any of those will do. If you use them all, that's fine. I will ask how you rate this, just explain how it all tallies together (since some people are very specific or rather general). If you use one of those, that's fine too. I left the rating template link on the front up as a suggestion guide.And a few immediate changes1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Just a quick journal to say that we're looking for deviants from the community who would be up for participating in a September Community Week . Last few of these have been incredibly successful with community members writing educational and informative articles through our %projecteducate group, featuring other artists, exposing underappreciated artists, giving tutorials on deviantART features and functions and holding contests.

INCOMING PHILOSOPHICAL OUTBURSTI don't think there is a god in the classical sense, however what is, is a system of nature, the laws of creation in which we all live and grow. It is a system that is so perfect in its imperfection that it is self-regulating its own development and the development of every instance it holds, be it matter, living beings, planets. And this development only occurs if there is some suffering involved, especially in the first few stages of aquiring wisdom which eventually leads to spiritual enlightment. It is indeed a benevolent system if we all understand this, and that sometimes in order to develop thoroughly and perfectly a certain chain of sometimes not so pleasant events just have to happen - this is also the reason why there is evil in this world: we must learn to get it under control in such way all beings benefit to it, solve the problems in order to become a better mankind, till we have reached a state were no suffering is required anymore in order to develop further - recogINCOMING PHILOSOPHICAL OUTBURST7 months ago in Personal More Like This
Urban ExplorationUrban Exploration is the examination, and often documentation, of normally un-seen or off limits places. It's becoming an increasingly popular 'hobby' and for some, something much more serious. This week we're looking at a specific Photographer and his chosen subject - linked directly in with Urban Exploration.Urban Exploration7 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Wayne Levin's work recently caught my eye at a Photography Exhibition - you may already have read about it if you caught the latest edition of Photography Fortnightly. As well as being an awesome and very unique idea, constructed creatively and tastefully - it reminded me of Urban Exploration. Levin explores beneath the sea, another place that many of us don't get to see unless we venture there with specific equipment - and often training. Exploring reefs, water life and shipwrecks, Levin's work truly is an act of Urban Exploration. It just shows us that there are no limits to being an Urban Explorer and there are many un-chartered 'waters' that need to be documented and shown,
The Well is NOW OPEN AGAIN *yay*A few changes have been made.The Well is NOW OPEN AGAIN *yay*8 months ago in Personal More Like This
If you did not get it in your message center, the FAQ has been updated. Please check it out - lots of updates there (too many to do a mini-journal about it - sorry).
We have consolidated several blogs, namely the review (x2), join and mission statement blogs. We now have a JOIN THIS GROUP blog and a MAKE A WISH blog instead now linked on the profile page.
The review process has changed somewhat - please read the JOIN THIS GROUP blog and MAKE A WISH blog (or the FAQ) to get up to speed on that. It is much more simplified now with less commenting and more noting the group for the sake of privacy, quality and tracking. For the most part, this will not affect current members with wishes listed, but it will affect all members without wishes listed and all current non-members.
We are working on overhauling the Pending wishlist - needs to be organized most horribly! Once we get that underway, we will be doing another wishlist archive, so the granted list
PE: Chat, Forum and the FAQMost of us don't read manuals when we get new stuff, partly because it can be pretty long and somewhat pointless to go through. It's not surprising that the +faq on deviantART is treated in a similar fashion sometimes, but there are a lot of awesome goodies to dig up in there, especially where the +chat and +forum are concerned. In fact, deviantART has dedicated a whole section on these two in the +faq here, something well worth a once-over!PE: Chat, Forum and the FAQ8 months ago in Art Features More Like This

You can look upon this FAQ as an introductory one to dAmn - deviantART Messaging Network (basically just the +chat and +forum). You can find a few good helpful FAQs there straight off the bat, so reading up on the basics is definitely worth it here.
Information.This will appear in your message centre only once at first; once we (the group) have definitely decided on a 'plan of action' for the group, then it will appear in your message centre again.

Over the last 24 hours these are the ideas I've come up with.Information.8 months ago in Personal More Like This
It should be noted than by 'group' we mean 'community' - and by 'community' we mean 'community!'. Groups are the 'place' where individuals in a community tend to come together. Individuals in the dollmaking community, for example, tend to join dollmaking groups. So we view 'group' and 'community' as more or less synonymous terms.

Sex and double-standardsThe old dead horse topic of why men who have lots of sex = studs. Women who have lots of sex = sluts.Sex and double-standards9 months ago in Personal More Like This
For the life of me, I don't understand why the double standards really (and because most people are stupid and ugly), but I suppose it's better to be a satisfied slut who can sleep with practically any attractive man she desires, than to be a frigid lady in bed whose husband is just fucking out of obligation and not out of mutual desire.
Yes, I can be very direct with my words, but I mean every word that I say. At least with me, you won't have to read between the lines. Ain't got time to waste on euphemism and politically-correct words.
Speaking of sex, I am wondering if I should ever settle down. Eventually I might, but it's more like a high-risk investment. People tend to get really unattractive together once they get married. They feel like they can "let go". I'm sorry, but I could never tolerate that. Looking and feeling good is a big part of my life, a self-confessed hedonist, and
A.F. Henley's Honour: Book ReviewA.F. Henley's 'HONOUR' : Book ReviewA.F. Henley's Honour: Book Review9 months ago in Personal More Like This
Honour is a deliciously tangled web of outright deception and hidden agendas, spiced not only with characters to be charmed by and care about, but also those we 'love to hate'.
From the moment Emmett steps off his ship into a world of strict social classes and iron-fisted monarchy, this book is a visual treat, as well as being quite literally, 'a damned fine read.'
I say 'visual' because A.F. Henley's London is a feast of vivid backdrops through which his thoroughly engaging characters move, from the raucous mayhem of cobblestone streets where the unavoidable arrow of fate initially strikes to the foreboding walls of the royal residence itself.
Emmett's fondness for and determination to protect his young, innocent charge Aleyn from the vices of a world Emmett knows all too w
