I couldn't have put it better myself!
Well, I can't argue with that. I've never heard of anything like this, even though people "deactivate" all the time, which is a very very sad thing.
Time Flies It's been a while? I feel bad, in a way. Sometimes I log in here and see numerous notes, and messages. I just don't even know where to begin with all that. So...I figured I should at the very least leave something here to direct people properly.
But after a while
You realise time flies
And the best thing that you can do
Is take whatever comes to you
'Cause time flies
You'll may (or may not) have noticed that all my work is in storage. I don't feel the need to justify why; it should be obvious. Truth be told, I rarely log in here. I do occasionally upload to Flickr and Instagram. I'm also still around on Twitter. I don't really have much of a digital presence these days!
She said luck is what you make it
You just reach out and take it
Now let's dance a while

Thank you......for all your lovely birthday wishes! I spent it with my better half up on the Isle of Skye watching the most glorious sunsets I have ever seen.
Hope you are all well
Celebrating Deviousness - January 2015
In Recognition of Exemplary Membership and an Outstanding Spirit of helpfulness and mentoring within the DeviantArt community.
Hi everyone! I'm Jade, better known around DeviantArt as Aeirmid. I chose my username because Aermid (or Airmid) is an Irish goddess of health and healing, and I wanted to pay tribute to her because I have dedicated my life to promoting mental and physical health in others. In fact, I'm just finishing up a PhD program in public health. In March, I will celebrate 10 amazing years on DeviantArt. Although I started my journey as a photographer, I quickly became enthralled with photomanipulation and worked hard to develop some skills. I chose my original name on DA, SanguineVamp, because I loved all sorts of dark and Gothic work. I still do. Still, I had a hard time creating dark art because my attempts at blood and gore always somehow magically evolved
Almost there...2 days left in 2014, eek! It's certainly been a quick year for me - how about you?
As we head in to 2015, I'm back at work today, reading the multitudes of Seniority suggestions that have landed in my inbox. The next announcement will be made early in January, so if you have any last minute suggestions for someone who you believe should be made a Senior within our community, please drop me a note.
Before you do, however, please make sure that you read the following;
I wish you all a very happy and inspired 2015!
JustMANGO - Seniors Takeover - Final Day!Welcome to Toronto!
Who are we?
toronto is a group that organizes and hosts devMEETs every month at a travel-friendly location. Our mission is to bring together deviants around the Greater Toronto Area of Ontario Canada, to meet new friends and to discover the face behind familiar names.
What do we do?
We host many kinds of devMEETs. We have attended conventions such as Fan Expo, Anime North, and Toronto International Book Fair. We also tour art galleries, photography exhibits, and have our own drawing and photography sessions under the blue sky. Sometimes we simply get together and play a few rounds of Cards Against Humanity, a game of tabletop RPG, or watch a few movies of our attendees' choosing. At other times we get sporty and play pool/billiards, go bowling, have a round of ultimate frisbee, or go hiking in a city-center park.

PinkyMcCoversong - Seniors Takeover - Day 1THE WHAT:
Every month, the team at CRLiterature hosts a book club! We began in June with THE HITCHHIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY by Douglas Adams and are wrapping up the year with THE WILD IRIS, a poetry collection by Louise Glück. (And, yes, you totally have time to catch up this month -- this book is short!) Each month you'll have a new book and a new host from CRLiterature. As you can see from the above selections, we do our very best to read widely. We've read Stephen King, Cornelia Funke, H.P. Lovecraft and Helen Fielding this year! We're excited for reading MORE books with even MORE of you in 2015!

Hello Friends New and Old!Hey gang! This entry's been a long time coming and I've got a lot of ground to cover, so let's just jump in!
First off, to whoever got me the core membership: THANK YOU!! Your kindness was a big factor in my decision to be more active on dA again. That was a wonderful present so much gratitude and hugs. Wow.
NEW FOLLOWERS (and curious onlookers!)
Welcome! Welcome! And thank you so much for your interest in my work. Regardless of what got you here, I really appreciate your time and energy. I've gotten a lot of questions about my work, views, and all sorts of other stuff. Since I've been away for a while, I'm gonna do an FAQ in a week or two to get you guys up to speed. I did want to give you folks a shout-out though since I know there's been an influx with some of my older work making the rounds again. I'm very grateful to have you here.
Now, to my longtime friends here: You're are probably wondering "Where have you been, K-Bo?" Wow. Where to start... Without getting into to
16 Examples of how NOT to Pitch a LoglineI joined a Twitter dealie where you pitch to agents over Twitter, and I swear I learned more in one day about pitching than I have reading any number of how-to-write books.
A logline is a one sentence pitch of your story. It can be used on Twitter, but it's also used in person as an elevator pitch. It's the distilled essence of stakes, story, and character. Some people find it frustrating and intimidating, but I find it easier to do a logline than a query.
I got a few bites from agents, so I was quite pleased. I gained a lot of sympathy for them around 3 in the afternoon, though. Every pitch starts looking the same, and the really, really stupid ones start standing out. Some suffer from bad metaphors, bland stakes, or simple incomprehensibility. I've got 16 examples right here for you, so if any of your loglines look like these, you may want to consider a rewrite. (Incidentally, don't post your own loglines for my perusal. I'm not going to sit here and tell a bunch of people they

Hyper-Surreal Fractal Chess Set - The GAMEThe 3D PRINTED
The Project I have been working on subconsciously for years, which I mentioned in my previous post is now finished.
--- The Hyper Surreal Fractalic Mystical Chess set - My Masterpieces ---
The full set is a play in 7 acts about humanity, the evolution and the quest for knowledge through enlightenment and superfluity until the day when mankind finally became the plague of the planet.
A chess set immensely more surreal than Max Ernsts, Marcel Duchamps and Dalís sets.
Chess was made to be played with pieces of pure fractal mathematics, I now know that!

YouTube stuff + Update stuffSo, things are little bit hectic right now, and YouTube has been giving me a bit of hassle lately. I seem to have been losing subscribers since my last stream on my main channel, with a very big loss on my last Animated Atrocities upload, which is worrying, especially because any theory that I've had towards the numbers doesn't fit all of the evidence. (If people were getting sick of me talking about Growing Around stuff, then I should have had a positive turnaround when I uploaded an Animated Atrocities video). Add to that that like every single video this year has been copyright claimed, and let's just say that things have been discouraging as of late.
Other than that, I'm trying to stay optimistic, although the hot summer is making that a little bit difficult. But, some stuff that's coming up I guess. Most importantly is my Animated Atrocity review - with the upcoming Rugrats reboot, it's time to tackle Angelica and Suzie Preschool Daze, that show there that lasted four episo
Some quick recognition tipsI remember it can be quite tough to gain recognition on DeviantArt when you first start out. It's a massive website with so many features and ways to interact! When I started out, I was lucky to have a friend of mine giving me a little shoutout in their journal, which gained me my first couple of watchers. I'll do the same in this journal for some new Deviants I found that have really cool galleries, and I thought of giving a couple of tips as well on gaining recognition:
~ TIPS ~
Loads of interaction! DeviantArt is considered a social media website as well as an art site, and offers many more tools for interaction, feedback, and commenting than Twitter/Instagram/Tumblr ever will! Use it wisely If you want to receive comments, and have people view your art, you have to put some effort in yourself as well. Comment on other people's artwork, +fav it, +watch those you really like, keep communicating. Try interacting with other new ar
