Artists That Inspire Me 13Welcome to all reading this journal my regular feature of the work of others.Artists That Inspire Me 133 years ago in Personal More Like This
Below are the artists whose work has inspired me since my last journal entry. The selections made by no means cover everyone that deserves to be here. In time many many more will follow, as with each passing week I discover so many more talented creative people on here, that one journal entry could never do them all justice. So many of you out there are producing work that leaves me in awe, and it would be unfair of me not to acknowledge the creators of work that has caught my eye and imagination. This journal features some of the more recent works that have stopped me in my tracks. They are presented in no particular order, they are simply a selection that I believe need to be seen and acknowledged by others for their beauty, artistry and ability. I would encourage you all to visit each artist featured as I truly believe that in the DA community we learn so much from each other.
This goes to all of my fellow Lesbians&GaysI hate falling for "straight" people. I hate that everyone depends on gender. Honestly, who gives a flying fuck about gender? GENDER. DOESN'T. MATTER. Screw those labels; Lesbian, gay, bisexual. You don't label on love! If a girl happens to like another girl, or a guy happens to like another guy, so let it be! It's only love. There is no shame there. Love is love! What matters is you love someone for who they are, not for what body parts they have. Are they really going to let the fact that they have the same body parts bother them, and think it's wrong? They are only boobs. It's only a vagina. It's only a penis. What's the big deal? If you want to reproduce, do Surrogacy. I don't know about any of you, but I look for a great personality. I don't care what gender you are, I just want a nice little relationship. Is that too much to ask? Ugh.This goes to all of my fellow Lesbians&Gays3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Please forgive me. I needed to rant on this subject.
I would also like to add that, as many of you have noticed, I'm not getting into "technical" t

So my trip to South Korea is over since some days already. It feels it was short actually, but I surely enjoyed my time there I took an important amount of pictures and I decided to upload some of them here if any of you feels like taking a look at them; Pictures are not worth the actual thing but it's good to take anyway :')
One of my main occupations there was to visit many palaces and temples, thing that I enjoyed a lot and especially when they brought me in particular ambiances and atmospheres I've never been in before. This surely was a nice and interesting experience for me ^^

50 Best Reasons Gay Marriage is WrongNone of these reasons were invented by me. I just found and collected them altogether from the internet.50 Best Reasons Gay Marriage is Wrong7 years ago in Personal More Like This
This journal is meant to be satire.
It uses sarcasm and irony to expose the double-standards, hypocrisy, and outright ridiculousness of the arguments made by opponents of gay marriage.
For anyone that wants to counter with: "But the bible says...!" I link you to my essay:
The Morality of Homosexuality
50 Best reasons Gay Marriage is wrong!
1. Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, birth control and air conditioning.
2. Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.
3. Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their p

Mass Effect 3 - Happy Ending Mod...Mass Effect 3 - Happy Ending Mod3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Yet again the Mass Effect Fandom proved that it will not leave the ending in the state it was presented in the game. A certain (fan!) mod was created (and is right now in the testing phase) a Happy Ending Mod for ME3. We can destroy the Reapers, Shepard lives (EDI and Geth too) and most importantly of all we don't have to worry about the Star Child.
Instruction how to install it and the mod itself can be found here:
You can also check how the mod works here on youtube:

The Art of DystopiaSci-fi dystopia art is one of my favorite things on DA. The amount of detail is incredible, and you feel like you’re actually looking into a future world. It’s easy to get lost in these drawings. With the Killjoy comic coming out, I thought it would be fun to feature some of this incredible art. It might influence the way you imagine Battery City.The Art of Dystopia2 years ago in Personal More Like This

A rescue dogA few days ago, when I was at open field work in another city 200km away from Warsaw, working as off-road/trail photographer as usually- I got a call about a husky dog in desperate need that is located in MY area. Fully starved dog (just bones), having severe skin issues, bleeding and leaking mold off from skin and fur is falling off found on streets laying down- and needs immediate health attention. I'm not anymore active volunteer in my animal rescue foundation due to life changes, but my instincts of rescuing animals came back. I've responded to the animal foundation and took responsibility of picking up and transporting a husky in need.A rescue dog10 months ago in Personal More Like This
I had to cut off from work, and ummm the issue was… I went there with my co-worker whith his car. Everything sounded perfect, that dog was in need to be transported to Warsaw by today which is good for me cause after work we are driving back to Warsaw.
Buuuut the problem was… A nice, shiny BMW car.

The photographs in the following gallery look like CGI artists’ conceptions for alien planet settings in science–fiction movies.
But the locations are all places to be experienced right here on Earth. So much of our world is becoming “flyover” territory in our high–tech mobile society that amazing places like those in these studies are becoming lost to us. Take a long look at each of these landscapes and then ask yo

INFINITE 9 CHARACTER FACTS~INFINITE 9 CHARACTER FACTS~3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So I started doing this thing on Tumblr where, for a limited time, I will give one fact about my characters for every * I receive. So far, well... there have been quite a few curious individuals. XDDD Normally I'd keep this sort of thing under lock and key on Tumblr, but because people were getting so anxious to know some fun facts, I decided it might be fun to lower the blinders for a while and give the info to all of you as well~!
I will say that I've yet to respond to all requests, and I'm no longer going to accept any more after these ones are over and done with. So I'll be sure to update this journal with the rest of them at a later time. XD
But for now, enjoy~! <3

News about wolves :(Hello pals,News about wolves :(2 years ago in Personal More Like This
sorry for kiriban winner, you will be featured soon, I did not forget you I just write some sad journals and my mood is far from nice, so this is not the best time for kiriban.
By the way, there is a new one: send me a printscreen of 1 022 222 pageviews and you will win a feature (no feature for porn or animal cruelty, ok).
Well, I have news about wolves, as I have promised to keep you informed.
If you do not know what I speak about, check this journal, please!
Two ZOO Brno's employees answered my question about wolves and one of them was a zoologist, so I think we can consider that reply trustworthy.
So: as you probably already know, my beloved Atila, famous alpha wolf from ZOO Brno, died. He died of old age (10 years). His death is the cause of the current bad state of other wolves. The death of the alpha is followed with a lot of stress, as the hierarchy of the pack is completely crushed and in terrible mess.
The ZOO repeatedly applied te

Screw the rules
It is very good to know and be aware of composition, correct exposure, to compensate or not to, but it does sometimes mess with your own creative approach.
The camera and lens is plastic, metal and glass and just tools for you to use, they should be treated as such.
A good thing is to get that perfectly exposed and composed shot out of the way and then just flip to a new page.
Try for instance to take a picture of something with the sun behind it and completely blow the whites out leaving the subject correctly exposed without the use of a flash, it might just be the shot you choose instead of the "correct" one.
Absolutely no harm in using other tools than just the camera and a tripod, people have gotten cover shots of eagles diving in the water for food the photographer has brought and thrown there as bait.

What did the wolf do wrong?What did the wolf do wrong?2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The majority consider the wolf to be viscous cold blooded killer who's only goal is to kill. Ranchers, the government, and fairy tales would have you convinced of this. What many do not realize or forget that mans best friend, you dog, is a straight descendent of this savage killer. It is true, wolves can have a mean face full of teeth. So does the family dog. But ahhh, there is one major difference between a dog and a wolf. We have been successful in becoming that dogs alpha and have domesticated them. Im sure over the course of a few hundred years, even the most wild animal can be trained to do what you want at will.
We are in a time of repetition. In the days of old ranchers went out and hunted the wolf and if they couldnt, they demanded the government to do so. That is precisely what is going on today. The wolf could be found on the entire North American continent before it was decided to eradicate this pest. Where they failed is that without the wolf, the coyote,
Urban Exploration #4Climbing The ShardUrban Exploration #42 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Last year, Urban Exploration was thrown into the spotlight when images of a student who evaded security at 'The Shard' in London started to circulate - he'd shimmied up to the top of the tallest building in Europe... Behind this particular stunt was The London Consolidation Crew - they like to climb buildings after dark. And why not? The views can be incredible. It once again highlights how Urban Exploration isn't 'making a nuisance of yourself' as so many think, but rather, showing the world what they are missing out on. Photography is just a small part of Urban Exploration but the advancement of digital media is a huge asset. You can read more about The Shard stunt here.
