My Bio
with breakneck speed, I decided that life was better lived, not studied.. and so I departed from all that I knew and ventured forth into a world I knew almost nothing of.

Now, many years later.. I find I know even less but greet each new day with amazement and enthusiasm.

My main genre of productivity include, but are not limited to, Literature.. Fine Art Nude Photography.. and Freeform Humanistic Sculpture. Herein, however, you will be greeted with~ predominantly~ sensationalistic material with which to promote my purpose and goal of piloting a pedal powered boat around the world.

Join the journey.. add me to your watch list or head over to the book of face and add oceancyclist as a group to learn more about the journey and goals.

with eclipse.. although I am finding it easier now, I do think of it as a bandaid- rip it off and the pain will go away. Sure, it hurts at first but soon, we'll forget all about the features we came to know and love with the *old* version of DA and just sit back and deal with the slug- fast speeds, lack of intaractivity, and general lack of functions that are presented with this "OS" ... I'll probably poke around for awhile and see how things go.. not gonna disappear entirely but.. I really am not thrilled with this step backwards in functionality.

methinks that if...

..if the designers of Eclipse were choclatiers- Well, then they would be mass producing copy- catted products. ..if the designers of Eclipse were artists- Well, then.. they would be offering Student Assignments for sale as Original Artworks. ..if they were nude art photographers- Well, then.. they would be using Point and Shoot cameras I've tried to make sense of the lack of functionality, the loss of interactability.. and navigability of the new system.. and while I *might* stick around- I mean, I've put in 16 years (ish.. give or take a bit.. and one database rewrite) so I am hesitant to Go Away entirely.. but I"ve got plans and I've

What I thought.. May 01~ May 03.. how many Deviants were gone? Was their absence noted anywhere? Did it make a difference? When I was in University, I protested the logging of Native Land. Little was done with that action.. little was gained and one public figure that joined in our ranks switched sides and pandered liberalism instead of socialism.. little was done. Little changed. The deviant disappearance for three days did little. The deviant departure/ exodus that is about to happen thanks to ECLIPSHITZ being forced on to us.. that might be noteworthy. Or, the owners (WIX) will look at it as a way to get rid of the old guard.. the casua
