BOOM 28BOOM……………………….Like Boom I got the idea for an unforgettable commercial for the new Apple Watch today, and I saw the audiovisual combination of Prince's Time from his latest album Art Official Age and Apple's beautifully crafted new product, and lyrics, melody and Ives' work of art became one:"It's so about time…I think it's 'bout timeThat I got timeAlone with U(I know U know)'Cuz U're so fineWhen I get mineBaby U can 2Sho 'nuffSugar well...I'm thinking that U reallyNeed 2 b my petAnd let me put U in my 'lil cageC'monI'm sick and tired of playing hard 2 getWith an animal that's half my ageSugar well wellMy head's a little dizzyMy head's spinning 'round('round and 'round and)Another dirty hotel roomAnother lonely townI need some time with...I need some time with U“Prince, Time
In Oz: AmesdalinIn Oz: Amesdalin* Eine Eskalation von Beau Cyphre *Manchmal begegnet man Gesichtern, die einen unglaublich beeindrucken, und bei dir war ich von Anfang an begeistert. Du bist so viel mehr als auf platte Weise "schön", und in deinen Augen scheint etwas zu sein, das vielen anderen abgeht: Feuer und echte Leidenschaft. Ich will hier nicht auf deine faszinierenden Cosplays eingehen, weil ich sonst diesem Porträt nicht gerecht werden kann, aber würde ich nur dieses Porträt von dir kennen, ginge ich davon aus, dass diese Frau ganz schnell in ganz vielen Rollen zuhause sein kann. Für mich hast du etwas von einer Gestaltwandlerin, und darum liebe ich es, in deine Bilder einzutauchen und das zu genießen, was du uns zeigst. Du öffnest Türen, und du zeigst uns Welten. Ja, ich glaube, Fantasie ist wie für dich gemacht.
the flow 10 (drive)the flow 10 (drive)* An escalation by Louis Cyphre *From the east it's not too far to the west - at least if you're traveling by plane. Canada's a giant, and so we wanted to drive a giant's car. We chose a Jeep Grand Cherokee, and this Jeep became our favorite car ever, 'cause when we left Downtown Vancouver for the Sea to Sky Highway it felt so incredibly powerful that driving was like flying up the streets to Whistler and beyond.
the flow 8 (move)the flow 8 (move)* An escalation by Louis Cyphre *Moving to Toronto is easy: I just close my eyes and I'm there. When I close my eyes I open them in a dream, and dreams always become reality if you believe. I do.I do believe we're connected to places as much as to human beings and everything alive, and 'cause everything's alive our souls remember all the beats and beams we felt intense enough to create this inner map that lets us travel really fast everywhere we want to.So I travel, and I do it now. I travel with the speed of light and get the feeling of being in a car driving fast along the shore area of Lake Ontario, my eyes now at the skyline of a place like no other. Here I start.
the flow 1 (play)the flow 1 (play)* Eine Eskalation von Louis Cyphre *Alles von oben zu sehen, ist einzigartig. Ich hätte niemals damit gerechnet, es zu tun, denn zu lange hatte ich so schreckliche Angst davor, in ein Flugzeug zu steigen, dass ich überzeugt war, es nie zu tun. Aber dank Corazon führte London zu New York, und jetzt bin ich über den kanadischen Rocky Mountains, und ich bewege mich mit einer unglaublichen Geschwindigkeit. Ich weiß nicht, wie es funktioniert, dass sich dieses so irrsinnig schwere Flugzeug beinahe zehn Stunden lang in der Luft halten kann, und ich will nicht zu sehr darüber nachdenken, welche Technik dafür nötig ist und wieviele Schaltkreise perfekt aufeinander abgestimmt sein müssen, um dieses Wunder zu vollbringen. Ich will nur weiter nach unten schauen auf diese riesigen schneebedeckten Gipfel, während ich zu begreifen versuche, dass es jetzt in Deutschland schon tiefste Nacht ist.
363 (Daimon)363 (Daimon)Zunächst mal Danke für deine tolle und sehr spannende Antwort zum Thema "Talent", und nochmal sorry, dass es mit meiner Antwort jetzt doch so lange gedauert hat. Tanja und ich hatten Besuch übers Pfingstwochenende, und Annette und Sabrina (unsere besten Freundinnen) sind sehr agil, was gemeinsame Unternehmungen angeht .Nach allem, was du geschrieben hast: Ich werde dich nicht wiederholen. Lass uns das Wort Talent mal ganz vergessen, denn wie alles, was aus Buchstaben aufgebaut ist, ist es nur das: Ein Wort, nichts weiter.Was ich eigentlich meine, ist das, was Gustav Meyrink mal als den daimon beschrieben hat, dieses Unbegreifliche in dir, das dich antreibt und dich Dinge tun lässt, Dinge anstreben und verwirklichen lässt, die niemand auf die gleiche Weise tun kann wie du.Arbeit, ja. Arbeit ist das, was wir aufwenden müssen, um den Rohdiamanten zu schleifen. Aber der Rohdiamant ist da, und ich behaupte, dass der Rohdiamant darauf drän
5 Tips for Increasing Dramatic Tension in Writing5 Tips for Increasing Dramatic Tension in Your WritingAnybody Can Write a Novel Chapter 7 “From Story to Art” – Section 7 “Rules, Limits, and Stacking the Odds”With Links to Supplementary MaterialIf you've got a draft of a story or a story in mind, sooner or later you will begin to realize that you might want a certain quality—a certain epic intensity that you've seen and experiences with books and movies that keep you on the edge of your seat with tremulous excitement, and then makes you feel like your mind has been blown after you are finished. But wait! Doesn't Shyamalan try to make his movies epic, and just leave his audience irritated because in doing so he makes his stories seem terribly bloated and self-absorbed? Yes! But YOU can reach epic tension without making your story self-pleasuring and pretentious
The Truth About Selling FanartUpdate notice as of January 17, 2013: I have given this guide a MAJOR overhaul. It was originally written over a year and a half ago, and since then my own views and understanding of copyrights has changed. I felt that this guide should reflect those changes, so if you read this guide in the past, please take a moment to look through it again as I have added MANY new topics, information, and sources. Unlike my first draft, I have also changed my viewpoint to neutral throughout this writing.Update notice as of July 17th, 2015: Check out DeviantArt's new article on art theft, fanart, copyrights, and other relevant topics! http://protectart.deviantart.com/journal/The-Art-Theft-Discussion-544490149Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer, nor any kind of professional that works in dealing with laws or copyrights.

How to Invent a Good UsernameTime for a quickie tutorial!Your username (also known as nick) gives one of first impressions of you when introducing yourself online. At the best, your username tells people you're an original person with good taste, and at the worst, it blends you to the mass of people lacking imagination.***GENERAL ISSUES TO THINK ABOUTHere is a list about issues that are healthy to think about in general. After this section, I'll give you "not to do" and "to do" lists about creating usernames. So...The most important thing is that YOU like your name. If you don't feel cozy with your username, it will irritate you sooner or later. However, especially if you are still young or new with Internet, be prepared for that your naming taste may change later and you may dislike that name you picked first! (That's something I have seen in the comments of this tutorial.)For example, my first online username was, if I remember correctly, my given name + my birth year (like, Lisa90,

8 Tips for Writing Dialogue for your Characters8 Tips for Writing Dialogue for your CharactersAnybody Can Write a Novel Chapter 5 “Choosing and Designing Characters” – Section 4 “Dialogue”With Links to Supplementary MaterialDialogue is a tricky topic, and for two key reasons. The first is that creating realistic dialogue is a difficult skill to master—even in day-to-day life—without speech coming out plastic, pointless, or otherwise unconvincing. The second problem is that the proper dialogue for your story is deeply rooted within the other elements—the characters, the setting, the genre, etc... Because of this, writing dialogue that is custom fitted to your story, requires adjustment and cannot stand up to any “one size fits all” set of guidelines. Today, I'm going to try to give some new approaches as well as some time-tested tips f
6 Tips for Writing Erotica6 Tips for Writing EroticaAnybody Can Write a Novel Chapter 2 “Genres” – Section 13 “Erotica”With Links to Supplementary MaterialWith the mainstream publication of “50 Shades of Gray” and its many rip-offs, erotica has become a popularized genre, with stories, plots, character development, and the same sort of expectations as any other genre. That being said, I've never read any erotica that met those standards or expectations. This doesn't mean that good erotica cannot or does not exist, simply that it is rare enough that I and many others have not encountered it. Today, I'm going to talk about what would constitute a quality erotica, that works as strong literature, and that takes writer responsibility into account. This article goes in combination with my article on writing
Creating a Well-Developed Original CharacterCreating a Well-developed OCHello! Welcome to my guide on the creation of a balanced, believable original character! Whether this is your first time creating a character and you want some advice on where to start, or you need to tweak your character, because you're unsatisfied with it, then you've come to the right place. In this guide you'll find details on the importance of every aspect of an OC, from something seemingly insignificant as the name to the powers of a character.This guide can be applied to original characters of any fandom or purely of your creation for your own story! If your setting doesn't include some parts, like having abilities, you can simply skip over that section. Likewise, if I'm going into details on some specifics that don't apply to your character, feel free to skip over that as well.Before I get into breaking down a character, let me first start off by asking you to do one thing. Get the term "Mary Sue" out of your head right now bef
LB's Guide to Coming Out MultiThis is a guide for coming out to friends, family, and other folks as multiple. It is specifically meant for folks who do not have a support system in place yet, and are just coming out of the closet. We hope that this makes the process easier. These rules are loose, and there are exceptions to every one of them; use your judgment.Before You Uncloset1. Think of your reasons WHY you are uncloseting. Obviously, freaking out the easily-freaked-out can be entertaining, but it's not a good reason to go disclosing what can be diagnosed as a mental illness. Uncloset for a good reason: because you have to tell somebody, and you think they'll be able to support you. If your internal crew is in deadlock over even deciding whether to do it in the first place, try to find a way to come to a solid decision; the last thing you need is for an internal fight to ensue in the middle of what's already a stressful situation.2.
