I was watching a program on Animal Planet (Yes, I watch that.) about people and their weird pets.
We all like pets. I am generalizing here, since I can't be bothered saying "Some people" and "A few of us" all the time so bear with me XD.
I have an usual pet which is probably a plain and boring thing for many of you pretties reading this, and that is Oxie my Mexican Walking Fish AKA Axolotol. Yes, I am exceedingly
inventive when it comes to naming my pets. He doesn't really do much except gravitate towards you when you walk past his tank due to the face its in the kitchen.
People do sometimes get a fright if he snaps at them though.
However, I know some of you own some odd pets, like snakes (You know who I am talking about
) which we aren't allowed in New Zealand. I find snakes to be such gorgeous animals. My family have had an exemplary number of pets or many species that is available in New Zealand. From the little like spiders, bees, frogs, worms, centipedes, fish, mice, rats, kittens, magpies, budgies, parrots to bigger critters like possums, puppies, pigs, horses, ponies, goats, cows, sheep and some other ones I can't remember.
Some people may consider that explosion of animals to be 'weird' or something, as many usually only have a dog, or a cat, or maybe a fish. I dunno, we love animals where I live, unless they are nasty little bitches...>:C
However, I was stupid enough to be snooping around the PETA website (Personally I think they are a bunch of hypocritical territorials) and one was saying how we should abolish having pets, because it was 'slavery'.
Now I know why humanity is failing so much. Because of douchbags like this. Hmm, never mind. I'll probably RAEG about that later in a journal somewhere. XD
Here are some strange pets; www.oddee.com/item_96811.aspx
Imagine having breakfast only to have a giraffe stick it's head in the window looking for some snacks? <3
Oh, and the 12 weirdest eBay auctions www.oddee.com/item_97100.aspx
Though we have TradeMe in New Zealand.
Take a goo look at that site, Oddee full of very weird and funny stuff like these strange mail boxes (my fave is the second, bwhaha) www.oddee.com/item_96200.aspx
Oh, and funny accidentally naughty headlines www.oddee.com/item_97134.aspx
One of the fellow Admins gave me some good advice, so I skulked around the Gallery and changed a few things, threw some deviantations into other folders, and stopped submissions from entering the Feature Folder. Also updated the power that is granted to the Admins so I am fairly sure they can change things around now.
Pretty much no rules here. You can submit art of any media. And I mean any. You can take photos, use pencil/pen/ink, digitally create your art, create strange clothes, models made from clay/metal/paper, emotes/avatars/banners, Tattoos, even use food to create art.
Here, if it is considered weird, it is more than welcomed!
I thought I would type down what you can submit and such, just so people don't get confused on that issue. (Goodness knows I'm one of them.)
-Weird you can submit just that; Anything you would consider weird, odd, strange, unnatural, supernatural and so on is completely welcomed here!
Humans are allowed if they are strange. Vampires, werewolves, leprechauns, faeries and all that jazz is awesome.
Even fan characters are allowed. <3 As is poetry and prose.
Art quality isn't a snark here. If you think you aren't the most awesome of artist out there, it isn't a big deal.
Submitting just scribbles, and WIPs is a no-no however. If you plan on posting a WIP, please make sure you only post the finished product here, okay?
We don't care what quality. It doesn't have to be a Vincent Van Gogh for it to be submitted. If you feel it is strange/odd/weird in anyway we will be happy to accept it.
One thing that isn't tolerated is Trolling and Art Thieves.
By Trolling I mean flaming others, deliberately going out of you way to make others feel bad about their artwork, or spamming.
Art Thieves mean people who steals others artwork and pass it off as their own.
Both are not tolerable here, and practicing either of these will result in expulsion and getting reported.
YES, will accept any.
