LovePink surf, Gently sloshing upon
Silver palm trees bear red fruits
In the shapes of hearts,
I bask in the warmth of the
Sun, as I swing happily in my hammock
A cool breeze refreshes me,
and I sleep lazily in the sun
Love is a paradise island

BlanknessBlankness crawling through my mind.
Like a cold blanket on a hot summer night,
covering my face,
like the last sheet, of my morgue bed.
What am i? One, the other?
Perhaps the other, or maybe both..or neither?
Other or neither.. Of This I am sure..
But has it already been decided?
Am I kidding myself?
Have I already picked?
But no... I WILL NOT BE CAGED!
I am nothingness
Representation: Damned either way
(Disclaimer: The following post concerns discussion of progressivism in video games or other forms of media and may be considered “Social Justice Warrior”. If you do not feel comfortable reading about such things, it is recommended that you read something else.
Also, don’t take anything I say too seriously. I’m the guy who liked all the Bayformer films, Sucker Punch, Green Lantern and the Mass Effect 3 ending.)
Representation: Damned if you do Damned if you don’t
What I’m about to say is very controversial. It may unintentionally push the wrong buttons, offend some people and phrase things the wrong way. If that happens, know that it wasn’t intentional and I apologize in advance. Feel free to call me out if I cross a line or two. Also, be aware that this post may contain logical fallacies and even strawmen. Okay? Okay.
So, when it comes to representation in mass-media, the issue of diversity has become a hot button topic and point
The Myths of AnorexiaThe Common Myths About Anorexia Nervosa
There are a lot of stereotypes and misconceptions that surround the life-threatening and merciless mental disorder that is Anorexia Nervosa. Here I will list them and the reasons why they simply aren't correct.
Anorexia will make you beautiful and confident
For whatever reason, people seem to believe having this problem will make you look better because you'll finally be 'thin'. This couldn't be further from the truth. Anorexia makes you sick, ruins your looks, and destroys your body. It's the opposite of beauty.
Anorexia is the best way to lose weight
No. The best way to lose weight is with a stable, nutritious diet and regular exercise. The starving you'll go through in the name of your disease will cause your metabolism to halt to a snail's pace and you have greater chance of plateauing (stopped weight loss) or gaining the weight back if and when you recover and begin to eat normally again. Many small meals a day is more effectiv
RE: 'What People Are Doing By Being Anti-Feminist'First off, why the hell is that piece under "Historical" in the Non-Fiction category? There's nothing even remotely historical about anything on that list. You're just voicing your opinion, so it should be under "Editorial." Second, it is your opinion because you don't give any damn sources for any of those on the list. So I'm going to leave some of those alone and voice my rebuttal/counter-opinion on the ones that are my favorites:
Dimissing that cat-calling is still an issue.*dismissing
Someone be honest with me here. Is it really that fucking hard to just keep walking away and ignoring the shitheads? Because I admit, I've never been cat-called, despite the fact that I've been given compliments by a few guys about how I look. And those aren't sexual harassment, those are legit compliments. I may be self-conscious and have a bit of low self-esteem issues, but I know a compliment when I hear it because they just make me want to run and hide. After being criticized

Deep Cliff #46 Bang Bang by Jessie J
Music Review: Bang Bang by Jessie J, Ariana Grande, and Nicki Manaj
Hello and welcome to yet another Deep Cliff, where I listen to your questions and bring you in depth answers. I want it to be known that I love music. I think that music is art that can be heard rather than seen. It’s expression…it carries a message. I have always had a great love for music, and while I may not like all genres…all music appeals to someone, and thus I can’t be a total hater. With that in mind…there are some songs that become sinfully famous. And when I say sinfully famous, I mean these are songs that are essentially trash…but manage to become quite popular. Case and point: Bang Bang by Jessie J, featuring Ariana Grande and rapper Nicki Manaj.
Bang Bang was released in July of 2014 and is featured on Jessie J’s new album “Sweet Talker.” This song did commercially well in America and reached Billboards top 100, peaking at number three at first
Super Mario Bros. 3 - An Overrated Classic? If you ask the average Mario fan what the top three games are, he/she will probably mention Super Mario World and Super Mario 64 and conclude that Super Mario Bros. 3 is the greatest game in the series. It is an NES classic to be sure -- it was revolutionary in 1990. It's still fun to this day!
On the other side of the coin, Mario fans tend to criticize the New Super Mario Bros. series, citing all five games as being identical. First of all, that's extremely unfair to the first NSMB for Nintendo DS. That one is brimming with features and details that didn't carry over to the rest of the NSMB series: Original bosses, SM64 elements, a competitive 1-on-1 mode, and a slew of competitive mini-games for 4-player mayhem. Secondly, when you seriously think about and compare them, aren't SMB3 and NSMB cut from the exact same cloth?
*NOTE: From here on out, NSMB will refer to the series as a whole, no
SDW #7-2.5: 'Love me!' 'No Thanks!' 'CONSPIRACY!'And now, a bonus update to Self-Development Wagon #7: "Love Me!" "No Thanks!"
This was to be an addition to Section IV: Fighting Others To Stay On Top (Ensures You Become Universally Hated), but it was too large. Instead, it will be getting a part all to itself. A happy accident is that this can also act as a stand-alone conspiracy theory guide (though, be sure to check my rather cheap-and-easy sources in the description below for more info).
Under the Tin-Foil Hat: Conspiracy Theories and the Refusal to Accept Reality
This section is a later-comer to this guide: newly added for the updates. It addresses the how those with a sense of self-righteousness and no grasp on reality love to push their own personal conspiracy theories.
Let's say you've accidentally "wronged" somebody with an intense form of self-righteousness: now they will go out of your way to prove you are the offending party, no matter how much evidence you have, no matter how much you
Top 30 Fictional Good Guys #20 - ElsaYeah yeah, she's currently Disney's most popular heroine. Some people say Frozen's just a fad, but I think Elsa has staying power and will go down in history as one of Disney's great characters.
Why, you ask?
Well for one thing, she offers a very interesting perspective on having supernatural powers. Sure, we have no shortage of angsty superheroes, but most of the time their powers are still portrayed as the coolest thing ever and their angst comes more from their responsibility of protecting people than their powers themselves. Elsa's powers, on the other hand, are more of a curse than a blessing. While her power is awesome, she can't control it, which results in danger for those around her. At the beginning of the movie, a charming playtime between two children turns into a tragedy when Elsa accidentally strikes Anna's head with ice and almost kills her, which immediately shows us the struggle to come.
Elsa's struggle has been called a metaphor for everything from mental disorders to
Martial ARTsListen up people! I say that there should be a category for MARTIAL ARTS in deviantART.
There's a reason it is called martial ARTS, and that it is because it is a creative form, much like dance, mime, and theatre. The category could be set up like so:
Martial Arts> Hard>Forms
