there it goes....well, i've been here and poking around in the backlogs of things...my inspirations run high, but my energy low. I don't manage to get much done these days, aside from work. I wish i could say i was doing fabulous and turning it all around, but... that's not the way it goes.So...with this, i will sadly be saying goodbye to my premium membership for a while. I went on a binge of donating points and memberships and didn't even realize i had my own membership expiring.Maybe i'll learn how much i loved it while i don't have it, and i'll be more grateful for having it once i can again.anyway....i'll be poking around a lot more... silently watching from the dark corners. Keep it gruesome out there!
Can You Spare Some Points?Hey guys..i've recently taken over at the :iconda-morgue: and have just discovered that we lost our super group status.I had no idea we were that close to losing it.AND..of course, it comes at a time when i have barely any points to put towards the 4000+ points needed to get our membership back.If you have a few points...doesn't matter how small....would you consider donating it?? i will have a large journal feature done showcasing all of the donors that put forth points.Thank you so much, even for just reading and considering donating.

I'm giving away 900 POINTS!I've got some new stock up...well, newish.i want to see something awesome. i'm depressed and tired of the world, so i want to make a happy spot for someone.there are 900 points up for grab.tell you what you have to do? sure. take my stock. do something with it. send me a link in my notes.sound easy enough?there will be 3 winners.... i hate that whole 1st, 2nd, and 3rd thing...so instead of one getting better than the other, here's the deal...points will be separated out equally between top 3 entries... the judging will be done by more than just myself, i'll update that as i go along. unless i get like 2 entries...and then, why bother at all? I'm leaving the contest open for an entire month, so entries are due in JUNE 23rd. that gives some of you procrastinators and perfectionists time to get stuff in to me. I will have all winners announced by july 1st. If I dont get volunteers to help judge, I might run a poll for popular vote.EVERY ENTRY GETS A FEATURE, AND A LLAMA!TOP 3 ENTR

Time To Kick It In The Ass.obviously i'm not getting any better at keeping a journal.obviously, my updating here SUCKS.however. Its time to change that.its time to do something worthwhile.I was looking on my harddrive and realized i had about 5 pieces i've not uploaded yet. i worked on them, and then left them by the side of the world just waiting for the day i would maybe do something with them.so. i guess i'll upload them.Also. i think i'll be spending more time at the :icondarkart-challenges: side trying to help max out. even though i feel almost entirely left shoe in a right foot world most days, i think i might be able to try to focus there. i need a moment of organization and someone to help keep me in line. the life i have leaves me in complete chaos almost always, and lately the only schedules i know is wake up, go to work, go home, go to bed...and repeat.its time for a change.so. there you have it. I'll be doing a feature next week, maybe tuesday.and i'm doing a mini give away. get i

Grimoires and the Unholy Invitationals of the DamnShare|AboutGrimoires and the Unholy Invitationals of the Damnedby techgnoticHalloween entertainment… or invitation to evil?Grimoire 2 by AndrewDobellWe all know from the movies that a vampire can’t cross over the threshold into one’s home without being invited. And yet simply knowing that Dracula can be held at bay so easily makes issuing that invitation all the more irresistible. Could such things as supernatural beings actually be real? And could there be ways for we mere mortals to have the power to evoke them into existence or dismiss them as we might pleas
InterstellarShare|AboutInterstellarBy techgnoticInterstellar by MachiavelliCroWho needs enemy aliens — when the oddities of space travel itself are so mind–blowing?Terraforming 1.1 by Wasteland-3DAs the following gallery of landscapes of deviantARTist–imagined other worlds well attests to — the natural desire of humans to explore and discover knows no bounds, not even the limits of the Earth’s atmospheric shell.

Collection: Forgotten PastShare|AboutForgotten Pastschnotte is a German artist know for his photographs of rotting, decaying buildings and other dark themes. His camera explores architectural structures, but mostly to emphasize their coldness. The human figures in his photographs appear out of place, as if lost in filthy, forgotten, broken-down manufacturing machines, the cold, dark environments not built with humanity in mind. Looking through these images we can see the ghosts of the love that once inhabited his worlds and it is that love that still shines through his pictures. We are blown away by the beauty Schotte imbues to these deathly quiet scenes that are equally sad and uplifting.“Yesterday is but today’s memory, and tomorrow is today’s dream.”– Theodore Roosevelt
