spam bot comment paradesUpdate: So, I posted a comment on dA's Facebook page about it, so let's hope they read it and get their butts in gear. This is really starting to get seriously annoying... the spammers are going to OLD images of mine now and posting comments on those.spam bot comment parades1 year ago in Personal More Like This
What the heck do they hope to even gain? I'm willing to bet it's all for annoyance factor but good grief... stop it already.
To those who haven't had this kind of thing happen (yet), consider yourself fortunate. It's not fun having to report multiple comments of nothing but weight loss and fake jobs spam...
Also: I am so severely sorry if somehow by some weird circumstance my account is a link/gateway to spam comments. People seem to be commenting about 'right after I read this I got a spam comment' which makes me wary that somehow this journal is linked to spam comments.
Unlikely but... Still... Ugh.
EDIT: All of a sudden

Odyssey, Clive and PETAFor those just tuning in, I have the privilege of working very closely with the Odyssey II Project with Clive Barker and I couldn't be more excited. The following is my personal opinion on the project, Clive and PETA, so I encourage you to direct any conversation regarding what you read here, to the comments below, so I can respondOdyssey, Clive and PETA2 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
First, I'm a huge fan of Clive Barker's work. His artwork and his stories have entranced me for years but beyond that, he's truly a deviant. CliveBarker has become an active member of the community, submitting his artwork and commenting on others. He's a perfect fit in my opinion, but that's not entirely why I'm writing today.
Clive's initial choice for a cause to donate the proceeds of this project to, is PETA and if you've been watching the ODYSSEYPROJECT unfold, you've certainly seen several opinions in regards to the organization.
If you know me at all,

ApostropheToday you asked meApostrophe2 years ago in Urban & Spoken Word More Like This
If I had ever written
A poem about you
Your smile is a simile
And the lines around your eyes
When you laugh are
Reminding me to mind my grammar
Your mind is my metaphor
Spinal column syntax codes
And your hand along my hip
Foreshadowing current events
Newspaper print tattooed on the back of your neck
Never mind rhythmic timing
You've already got that down
Upright posture postponing due dates
Adding an apostrophe to remind me that I'm yours
Each of your freckles marks the end of a sentence
Intense stare from your eyes the color of
Forget me not blue
Like the walls of your bedroom
Vignettes budded from our verisimilitude
And when we planted them in the garden underneath the window
That's when I knew
That it was you who read the strands of my hair
Like stanzas as they slipped through your fingers
And found rhythms rooted at the base of my back
You skimmed my ski

Home?this is a yellow brick houseHome?1 year ago in Free Verse More Like This
that is home to many a mouse,
but is not one to me.
this house is a stepping stone
that wears me to the bone,
but i don’t let anyone see.
this house carries voices
that limit my choices,
but i will one day fly free.
this house is so sick
that it sucks my life like a tick,
but i will not fall to my knee.
this is a yellow brick house
that doesn’t attempt to rouse,
but i will carry on, and simply be.
