Storage Areas or Twilight Zones?
Most basements and attics are part of the house, but not a part of the home.
Especially in childhood, these poorly-lighted areas are, at best, under a family’s occupation – but one can never trust that any spectral entities or spirits who might be there, abiding in the shadows, are ever fully loyal to the current family living in their home.

My deviantArt StoryHi everyone,My deviantArt Story in Art Features More Like This
Well I'm joining in on the fun for DA's 14th birthday and telling my DeviantArt story which actually did not start 2 years ago. It was with another account a long time ago when MySpace was still a household name...
I have known about DA since I was in high school, about 6 years ago but didn't join until I was 18, so about 5 years ago, which is when I got my first DSLR camera and began focusing on my photography. I wanted a place to put it and remembering DA I started up an account I believe under my old Starcraft username "Shelna Kryhas". I posted mostly just for fun, a mix of digital art as I was learning it and photography. Mostly beginner stuff. That account is long gone since I started taking into account copyright issues using a phrase specifically from "Starcraft".
So I started a new one though I don't know what I called it. Anyways over the next five years I had a few different accounts, one just for art that I closed and two regular ones, one that was to be permane

The Upcoming Thumbnail GridThe Upcoming Thumbnail Grid in DeviantArt Announcements More Like This
On DeviantArt, your deviations are paramount, and we want to present them in the best way possible, even in thumbnail form. Over the past few months, we've been working on a new thumbnail grid that maintains the integrity of your deviations, no matter their dimensions or content types. Our goal is to be better at displaying art than any other site on the Internet.
Problems We’re Solving
We can do better than the current thumbnail grid, which includes uneven or irregular gaps between deviations. These gaps don't have any visual rhythm, causing your eyes to jump all over the place. Some content types, including literature, journals, pixel art, and emoticons, don’t look ideal. Our new grid focuses on fixing these issues while modernizing the look and feel of DeviantArt.
Below are some concept designs that represent one avenue we’re exploring. (These are works-in-progress and not final. Also note that the category menu

8 Lies Told by Climate Change Deniers Debunked by Real Climate Scientists
With the news that the west Antarctic ice sheet is not only melting, but that melting is unstoppable, the climate change deniers are out in full force on the forums and the comment threads, wheeling out tired lie after tired lie, and are bellowing louder and slowing progress even more in the halls of legislation. While these deniers have a number of fall back lies, there seems to be eight perennial lies that keep cropping up.
The earth stopped warming in the late 1990′s, global cooling, it’s the sun’s fault, and 5 other ridiculous lies about climate change… debunked!

The Climate Denialist Plea for InactionThe Climate Denialist Plea for Inaction in Personal More Like This
As they tend to do from time to time in an effort to distract from the climate science consensus, a group of scientists who are also climate "skeptics" have published an opinion-editorial (op-ed), trying to make the case against taking action to address climate change. As usual, the article is little more than a regurgitation of a number of climate myths we have debunked at Skeptical Science.
The signatories of this newest letter are also worth noting for their lack of noteworthiness. Although the climate denialist blogs have labeled them "luminaries" and "
Getting started with digital artAs an artist that does digital art, I always get a lot of questions about what tablets people should use and how to make their choices. While I think equipment isn't all that matters, I think some things are good to take in consideration when buying a tablet. So here's something to get you started!Getting started with digital art in Deviant Events More Like This
Why do I need a tablet? Can't I use a mouse instead?
The biggest reason; ergonomics. When you do a lot of computer work in general, it's better to use a tablet over a mouse. This is because a mouse isn't designed for precision work. It's putting too much pressure on muscles that are not intended for precision work, hence it raises your chances to get all kinds of nasty injury's. Even if you can draw just fine with a computer mouse, you might actually consider to start using a tablet, for the reason that
Conquer your artblockI think every artist out here has experienced it at least one time in their career: the so called artblock. A moment of total lack of inspiration that suddenly hits you, and leaves you unable to create. Most often the solution is to just wait. Most artblocks will solve automatically with time. But there are circumstances in which an artblock doesn't automatically disappear, or when you have deadlines to catch. In that case, you might be helped by some basic tips to conquer your artblock.Conquer your artblock in Deviant Events More Like This
Over the years, I've experienced an artblock (or writersblock, as they call it for fiction writers) many, many times. Most of them were short, but the longest lasted over 2 years. Most of them solved on their own. But sometimes I just needed that little bit of extra help. Therefore, I made a list with a few tips and tricks to make your artblock go away. Hopefully it'll help you as well as it did me.

The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers)Howdy friends,The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers) in Personal More Like This
There has been an exciting development!
A couple of months ago, the folks at Chaosium Inc. [ http://www.chaosium.com/ ], the publishers of the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game, confirmed their desire to publish The Call of Cthulhu (for beginning readers). When I received word I immediately began revising the now almost two-year-old text and illustrations to ensure that the print version is of the highest possible quality. I am currently about a third of the way through this process, and thought it would be good time to let you all know that the oft-requested dead tree edition of this story looks like it is actually becoming a reality.
I continue to be grateful for the encouragement of the folks around here, and I look forward to updating you all with any further news as it arrives.

This article aims to give you a brief introduction to some poetic terms with which you can bemuse your friends and nonplus your enemies. Try and sling some of these terms into a casual conversation and watch the ensuing confusion.
If you don't want to confuse people, you could use these terms to discuss poetry like a badass
while smoking unfiltered cigarettes in a French cafe, when critiquing, or to give your own poetry a bit of a vajazzle.
These terms are arranged vaguely into alphabetical order for your convenience. Some of them will be covered in more detail in other articles throughout the week.
