poorly thought out
You, with the kind heart~
           We didn't talk today, but we had a nice conversation. I wanted to stop at your locker, but I just kept moving. You passed me in the hallway- twice- and your eyes lit up.
           They're dark, crisp, blue. Gorgeous. You have this way of raising your eyebrows so slightly, so gently, so subtly that your eyes brighten and gleam. In one flash of brilliance you can communicate extraordinary entities. When we lock eyes I feel like we've been talking for hours.
           How can something so sharp and piercing be so soft and approachable. I'm terrified of how safe you make me feel. So kiss me. Kiss me with your eyes.

Exploiting dA Legally With A Script
2018 edit: This is old news and no longer relevant!
In short, what is this news about?

It's about accounts that use a script to add ten thousands of deviants to their watchlist in a matter of days. Some people backwatch, that's how the script-account gains popularity and watchers (or points via donation if you want to). Even if they don't backwatch, some people will at least look at the site and may watch through your gallery or journal.
It's legal, I asked the helpdesk on this.
The problem is that the deviants being added by the script feel betrayed and disappointed. I want to inform people about this in the first place so they don't fall for those "traps". You can have a look at their gallery stats to see if there's something suspicious like ten thousands of watches. A profile full of "Thank you for the watch" comments is also suspicious.
Ideally however, I'd like deviantART to improve their security so those scripts stop working. I fear those scripts to get popular and watch-

Mini Contest: Embrace Your Inner Geek

Innovation for Writers
There have always been a lot of writers on deviantART begging for more recognition. It's understandable that literature is given a lower priority: as I'm writing this, there are 3,280 "Writers" online, which compared to the 10,671 "Artists" is a relatively small community. So all of us writers whine about how we never get "the attention that we deserve." There are plenty of stamps declaring, "Writers are artists too!" and all that sort of thing. But we never really get anywhere.
Well let's get serious, people.
deviantART easily has the most impressive coding I've ever seen. And the latest updates of the message centre, notes and v7 were stunning. So much is possible; it's time to give writers the edge.
When deviantART's Portfolio feature was released, it stated:
"Some people ask if Portfolio supports Literature, Film or Flash Animations. Unfortunately these formats are not yet supported, but we are working hard to make sure to support these media in the future with presentation formats

Portal Review
Portal Review
So I was just browsing through Twitter one day and saw someone I was following say Valve was giving out Portal for free on Steam! I saw the video promoting it and it was obvious this was to promote Portal 2. I've heard a lot about this game, and since it's one so many awards for being a great game, I decided to download it.
Portal is a fun, yet short, adventure that contains humor, action, a compelling back-story, and challenging puzzles.
Now you're thinking with portals.
Alright, so this is the deal: you're given a portal gun where you can shoot a blue portal. You enter it and exit from an orange portal. Eventual

SPLICE Create A Creature Contest Winners
After checking out all of the hybrid creatures that your amazing, twisted minds had to offer, the final three winners for the Splice "Create A Creature" Contest have been chosen.

We'd like to give a big THANK YOU to the director of Splice, Vincenzo Natali, for selecting the winners from the wonderful 25 Semi-Finalists and providing such thoughtful commentary. Thank you!

So what freaky, beautiful hybrid creatures came out on top? Check them out below!

This is stunning in its subtlty. A creature that I can believe in.  One assumes it is embryonic, and yet its wispy umbilical chord looks severed. I would accept

Movies I shouldn't like but do
Let's face it, for each of us, there's always at least one movie we like that's probably bad and the majority of the world most likely hates, or there's a film that we like for all the wrong reasons, like a serious film being so bad it's unintentionally funny or something like that.  I am going to go over the top 10 films that I like but know I shouldn't.  Remember that this is my opinion, so if you have any complaints about the choices I have, don't be a jerk.
10) Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen- I know that in terms of story, continuity with the first one, script and character development, this is technically a bad movie, but I had a lot of fun when I saw it in theaters.  I just get a kick out of seeing robots beating the living daylights out of each other, and besides, you have to give this one credit where it's due: At least the battles looked like battles this time around... well, at least they were easier to follow this time around.  I
