New Year Coming.Be good to yourself. Reap as much from life as you can. Try to avoid telling yourself no. Treat the people you love as lovingly as you can. Be good to them because you love them, and they will love you back exactly the way you want them to.
Work hard. Work a little harder than you have to to get by, because getting by is not enough to be happy. But never work so hard that your work replaces your life. Your job is not you. Don't let work replace friends and lovers in your world. If you do, you may never get them back.
Play hard. As hard as you want, with no limits. But do not confuse play with competition. If you do, your friends may never forgive you, and may stop playing with you altogether. Compete hard, but be fair, Make sure everyone is aware that there is a competition before you engage. Make the field a level one, and both you and your friends will get more from the play, and from the competition.
Above all, love hard. As hard as your heart can handle. Love everyone you call frie
The process of removal continues...10 points to the first who can name the actor quoted above, and the movie from which the quote is drawn.
I deleted all the members whose pages I had begun to follow because of salacious content. I was pleased with myself to find that, of 37 people I had been following, a full 25 remained after the culling... implying that my taste in pages to follow has been in favor of the creative and artistic, as opposed to the merely prurient.
I deleted approximately 120 images from my favorites folder a few days ago. Just enough to show me I would be handling the removal process on stages. Deleting images is not all that difficult... merely tedious and boring.
But, the process of removal continues. I now offer one last warning to those fo you who followed me only because of the x rated nature of my favorites; get what images and links you want from my favorites while you can. If your interest has been only juvenile in nature, there will soon be little in my favorites to draw or hold your attention
I give up.Most of you who read this will not remember that, a long time ago, I set up my favorites folder to reflect the fact that dA has, for almost it's entire existence, maintained amorphous, fluctuating, uneven, and by fiat application, totally, completely unfair standards with regards to all thing adult, erotic, and sexual, and most especially where photographic images are concerned.
In the early years, the way this would manifest was that "this" photo, of questionable, clearly erotic content, would be allowed, while "that" photo, with nearly identical content, would be tagged for removal by the admins. So, in the first year of my membership, I started using my favorites folder to highlight the constant and ongoing presence of images that should have been, at least according to examples of images dA had already tagged for removal, facing deletion themselves.
I've even written to the admins about this inconsistency once or twice. Just to ad my voice to what I knew (back then), was a chorus o
TEN QUESTIONSLots of people are getting tagged with this. My friend and fellow deviant; Blades 123 posted 10 very fun questions after he got tagged, and then had the foresight to let everyone who wished to respond.
I enjoyed answering his questions quite a lot, so I figured I'd come up with 10 questions of my own and see who's still following my page. Thoughtful answers get extra credit.
There will be a test afterwards so pay attention!
1: What song, or style of music, do you secretly listen to when no one is around, that would mortify you if people found out?
2: Are you really that big of a trekkie, or do you just google the proper references because everyone on DA seems to be a major trekkie, and you want to fit in?
3: If you were a car, what kind of car would you be and why? Give make and model, please.
4: Was this the best season of DWTS or what?
5: If you had to pick 5 books to save, and all other books would be destroyed forever, what 5 would you choose?
Hello, my fellow babies...What's good, my fellow deviants?
Just wanted to get the toxic journal entry I had previously written off my main page.
Not much to say. I'm getting ready for a surgery coming up to repair a blockage in my right leg. After 6 major surgeries in 5 years, I'm getting to be an hold hand at all this, so no serious excitement or stress.
My music is going well. If you haven't been to check out my songs, go here:
I'm a one man band, digital composer, singer, guitar and bass player, and producer.... if you like hard rock, you'll like my songs. Join the site for free and become a fan on my page! You'll be doing me a huge favor.
I am coming by regularly and checking out all the new stuff from the small but excellent group of artists and friends I follow here. Always know that you have my respect, my admiration, and my total support. And if you ever have a question about how things work in the greater world of commercial art, don't hesitate to ask. As an art d
Do I have to explain to anyone....How I feel about the presence of an ad on my front page that I can only get rid of by purchasing a membership?
Way too many people on this shit ball suck rotten ass. Karma is so screwed up for the human race we almost have to have some sort of epic catastophe just to balance the books.
I'm not sure what it would take for me to shell out a dime for a membership to this site, but I'm pretty sure Congress couldn't get it passed.
Way to go DA.
Still Kickin' It...Soon after I wrote my last journal entry, which lambasted DA for changing in ways I do not feel are positive, I began to receive a run of what amounted to some of the best comments, questions, remarks and other interactions with fellow DA members I have ever had the pleasure to enjoy since joining this site.
A very good friend who also happens to be a HUGELY talented artist, who is also a member here, urged me to reconsider my pending decision to leave DA.
Meeting new and wonderful people, and the pleasure of such intelligent and well considered interactions as I have had recently are certainly sufficient to cause me to think long and hard before giving up on this site.
On the personal front, I and my associates in crime- ...er, music... are officially working on an album project. We are currently working two songs which are both among the best work we have ever done, either as a group or as individual players. Over the course of this project, we will likely develop 25+ songs, from whi
The death of an old freind...My awareness of DeviantArt goes back to around 2003, or possibly 2004... I don't remember exactly. What I know is that I was aware of the site's existence many years before I became a member. DA left a very specific impression on me back then. It felt like a place on the web that was different from the gaudily commercial sites that polluted the web then and now. It was a place that was all about a specific interest... unconcerned with anything so base as a desire to garner profit. It's purpose was to tell viewers and members that art was good. And that an appreciation of art, in any form, was good. It both saluted and supported that which was different. It celebrated the unparalleled, unending diversity of expression that is the very soul of the genius which is the human experience.
I was captivated by the site. At first purely as a voyeur. For several years, I only came to the site and stared, agape, at the vast and ever growing collection of ideas. Later, as a full member, I gladly b
Only as it should be...I've been a member of DA for about 4 years now. Shortly after joining, I received a minor accolade from a guy who lives in Scotland, also a member here. Nothing over the top, just as simple acknowledgement of respect for my work. I went and took a look at his gallery, discovering he is not only an illustrator but a writer. I queried him regarding his writing, and we began both a discussion and a friendship which continues to this day.
For all that time, my friend has lagged behind me in page views. Now, we both have the "right" attitude towards page views. They mean very little... image views mean a lot more. But, something is about to happen, and because of one simple fact, I think it is noteworthy.
You see, I "retired" from a commercial art career of 30 years about 2 years ago. Since then, I have done very little in the way of new art. My friend, on the other hand, is an artist's artist. Committed to his work, and to developing his not inconsiderable skills. He works as a commercial
