The Clinic of Uncomfortable Probings
I’m not sure when I first got the idea to open my clinic – if it was during medical school or later during my residency.  In any case, it had been kicking around the back of my mind for some time.  I remember during my undergraduate – I think it was my freshman year -  I was studying at USC and I had a major crush on this girl Erica in my political science class.  She was a Jewish girl, with long black hair and pale white skin.  I later found out that her father was the dean of the medical school, but at the time I just knew she was artistic and quirky and I was sort of fascinated with her. Anyway, I was a big fan of this d

Autumn
In the time of darkness Past the valley of the moon In a land of starkness Lies my solitary room In my eyes a sadness That eclipses the sun In my mind a madness At the things that I have done These hands once built a fortress Whose walls could stop all sound Now time’s slow conversation Has worn it to the ground Once I walked protected Safe where’re I’d go Now I roll and show my belly And beg the final blow Once my words were weapons Gleaming from my tongue Once my thoughts were razors Once, when I was young Now I hide myself in shadows In terror of the cost Too afraid to learn Even what it is I lost The waters rise ar

Who She Is
“I feel as grey as the Sky” My lover says But she IS the sky But she doesn’t know “I have no color to your eye” But she doesn’t know That it’s her, not I, who makes it so She needs but to gaze on me And then, reflect on what she sees And passing thus, refract it so And then she’ll see her own rainbow But she doesn’t know… “I feel as cold as the sea” My lover says But she IS the sea But she doesn’t know “No action can stir me” But I drown in her, as those before me Her ebb and flow the moon control And you must break her surface to explore below But she

When I was Young
When I was young I chased the sun I raged against the morning But now I’m old And night is cold And I long for the sun’s warming When I was young I’d let pain come Life was light to transport But now I’m old With heavy load And death’s a promised comfort When I was young God was dumb I cursed him with my heresy But now I’m old My soul is sold And I pray to God for mercy When I was young The world was fun I had my life before me But now I’m old My story’s told And life’s begun to bore me

Attention, attention! This is a very important message. Read thoroughly!

The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement has just been published, and it is going to substantially threaten DeviantArt's life and future. This deal is dangerous for DeviantArt because of its intellectual property enforcement chapter, whose provisions could destroy this site's mission, which is to "[create] the cultural context for how [art] is created, discovered, and shared," and "to exhibit, promote, and share their works with an enthusiastic, art-centric community." On a larger scale, the TPP would also destroy the careers of nearly every artist who posts works on this site.
The TPP's intellectual property chapter includes provisions that could censor the Internet, endanger online privacy, impose draconian copyright standards, abolish freedom of expression, criminalize whistleblowing, and rob the public domain. Internet service providers could be held liable for hosting copyright infringement, and they could also be forced to become private copyright enforcers, forced to take down, filter, and block content with only a private notice from the copyright holder. So, under the TPP's provisions, DeviantArt could be shut down and its users and staff could be treated like criminals.
The TPP would push for the widespread use of Digital Rights Management software, or DRM, to prevent consumers from tinkering with devices or content for purposes that corporations fear will infringe their copyrights and patents. Consumers could be prevented from unlocking their mobile phones to change telecom carriers, and prevent documentary filmmakers and other artists from breaking encryption on DVDs or sampling online streaming videos, where legal threats could be faced even if the video is created legally. People with visual or reading disabilities could be prevented from changing the formats of books and movies to make them more accessible. Not only unauthorized content, but also unauthorized software, could be blocked under the TPP's digital locks provisions. There is NO EVIDENCE that DRM does much to combat copyright infringement or protect consumers from viruses. All DRM does is suppress companies that promote innovation, criminalize sharing, and hinder and break the Internet and new technologies.

This is an emergency. You need to take action before this extreme pact can be implemented. And if the TPP is implemented, our right to share, modify, and experiment with content and technology could be faced with overly severe restrictions. As such, this site could be brought to its end, once and for all.
