Well kiddies, I finally jumped into the wild world of self-publishing via the e-book method. It's terrifying and awesome all at once. I guess we'll see how it goes.

If anyone sees this and is interested in taking a peek, it will be FREE on Kindles and any device that can run a Kindle app April 19th. After that the book will be $3.99.  You can go here www.amazon.com/Blood-for-Wolve… to check it out and see if you like it. :)

So out of sheer curiosity of the ratio of naked men vs. women on this site, I clicked on the "Artistic Nude" linky and cruised through the pages to count up how many of which I had the pleasure of seeing.  *mildly annoyed/disappointed sigh*

As I thought.  I don't know if it's because dA sucks with their porn policy or because people are fucking retarded and are okay with titties and coochies everywhere but can't handle some manly cash & prizes, whether or not the shot is actually very well done.  After 11 pages (because dA wouldn't let me go beyond that for some reason), here are the results:

Women: 211
Men: 52
Man/Woman: 1
None: 1

(that last one wasn't actually a person's body - it was a vase of some kind in the shape of, who can guess?  A woman.)

I get it.  We ladies are fun to photograph.  And I'm sure we're even more fun to look at.  I don't deny that many photos are indeed well done with effort put into them by the photographer as well as the model(s).  But of course there were plenty that I would never admit are art.  Sorry.  But I don't put a canvas smeared with shit in the category of art either.  So sue me.  I'm not claiming to be an expert in art or photography but....really?

There are plenty of directions I could go with this.  Plenty of things I could talk about.  But my little journal isn't going to be seen by, oh, anyone, and dA isn't going to change and I doubt we'll see a shift in those numbers anytime soon.  So I'm just going to move on and let it all be because we've already heard all the arguments before and so forth.  I'll just have to deal with seeing every woman's naked body on this site from here to eternity while the beauty of the male body remains hidden in the backpages of dA because everyone's so goddamn afraid of a dick.

Whatever.  I'm out.

No one visits my page (to my knowledge) and I've been too busy to bother screwing around with my pictures and putting them up.  But who knows, maybe I will on a day when I get bored and have nothing to do *makes a note on the "If you get bored, you can" list).

Anyway, for those of you who enjoy fanfics and have played FFXII, check out mah sista's debut staceums.deviantart.com/ … was pissed at the game, so she's rewriting the whole story.

Yah, the whole story. :ohnoes:

Hmm, so it's been a while.  I don't even think anyone looks at my stuff anymore...but that's okay because I just don't have a camera for good times (who wants to buy me one?!), and besides I mostly spend my time here looking for work that will inspire my writing muses and leaving comment all over like a fairy whoring out all her fairy dust.

Yeah.

Anyway, real updates are made at www.geocities.com/ssjakira1 where you can get to my two blogs, Epinions, and just about anything else you need.  As if you needed any of it.

So now that you have that, don't expect another entry in here for...well probably just as long as last time unless I suddenly get all overzealous about DA or a sweet camera falls out of the sky and cracks me on the head. (which would be AWESOME by the way).

Toodles!

Well, I see DA has gotten itself all streamlined.  Not sure yet if I like it, but it's growing on me.  Makes things seem simpler, though I'm not even entirely sure why.

To the point.  This isn't my computer.  In fact, anytime I visit DA it's not on my computer.  I need a new flashdrive - it's not big enough to transfer pictures and I don't want to have to keep deleting information on there and reloading it just to transfer stuff.  Hence, I haven't updated in forever.

(As if anyone cares, but to those who do watch me, gracias, and to those who visit, thanks for checking me out)

Will I ever update again?  Mm, possibly.  There is a good chance I'll be moving to Pennsylvania from this oh-so-flat land of Illinois, the state I simply cannot handle anymore.  Sorry to those who enjoy it here, but I'm not meant for cornfields and soybeans and lack of trees, stupidly hot and wet summers and super-ass cold winters when there's hardly ever snow and I always tell people I'd rather be in Colorado (which is the truth - haven't you seen my ID by now?)

Anyway, when my computer actually gets hooked up so some internet funnage, then yes, I'll be back with pictures from my beloved mountains, some doctored, some not.  Depends.  But until then, I'll always be here, the ultimate comment freak, enjoying those plastered under my list o'ppl to watch.

And until then, I'll leave you with something I considered putting up here on DA, but decided to go with FanFiction.net instead, though there were times when I wanted to destroy that site since their uploading/creating/editing software/format is jacked up.  Either way, enjoy:

Despite the dangers finding such a picture might impose, I'm still searching for the next piece that will strike my writing nerve and I can get back into the full force swing of things.  MAN would that be awesome.

However, I still have this week of junk to do for school and then next week is finals...and then I graduate the 12th.  At least then I'll be free from homework and can go play in the sun and write and write and write....and then go hiking.

Ah such sweet dreams to be had in the near future...  But I still want something to hit that nerve...and hit it hard.  Enough to make me insane and twitch for a pencil.  That's right, a pencil.  You think I type stuff out first?  No way, I'm old school.  I write it all out in a notebook.  Call me a tree killer - whatever.  But there's nothing I love more than a beautiful blank notebook (preferably college ruled).  Perfect place for me to put down the little symbols that make up my dreams.  It's almost like the Matrix when you think about it.  Heheheh.

Anyway, not that I have anywhere to go or be, but I think I'll wrap this up now.  I think I might have something I haven't posted that should be...

After watching the first two Fushigi Yuugi OAVs, I have officially decided that there is definitely not enough half-naked Tasuki lovin' in the world.

Someone with mad drawing skills should remedy that...

...You will be loved forever.  Hehe.

NT
No, that subject doesn't mean anything.  Say it fast and in a stupid voice.  That's what it means.

Anyways, a few new piccies for the tiny few who pay any attention to what I do.  I have a few others I can play around with, and now that my classes are over and my Spring Break has officially begun (yeah, with my teachers piling on the crap to do), I figure maybe I can do some more stuff.

After doing a lot of surfing around here on DA, I've been wanting to get back into drawing.  Though I've mentioned to some people that I can't draw to save my life, that's not entirely true.  I could save my life, but that's almost the best I can do.  I don't mean stick figures - for a while I was practicing eyes and I did a damn good job with hands, except it wasn't until a year later I realized my art teacher kept them.  GYAH!  T_T

Oh well.  I'd love to have a super awesome camera though - all the pics that I've taken have been with my dad's.  Yeah.  I want to get into all the areas of the world that don't pay well.  Go figure.  Well, I'm off to go eat...or watch Inuyasha...or write...or something.  I'll figure it out.

NT
Damn I wish I could draw...there are just some days when I wish I could sit down and crop something up out of these fingertips.  Not that being able to write is anything to scoff at.  I just...AGH..I wish I could create my characters visually as well as descriptively.  *sigh*  T_T

yare yare...

NT
Ok!  So my first deviation is up!  I should be excited but this day has sucked so much I'm just more tired than anything.  THe fact that's it's past 1am doesn't help.  I guess I should go to bed, but I don't like going to bed before 2am anymore...I dunno why.

Ugh.  Anyway, there's still a lot around here for me to learn.  I've already been to this site about a gazillion times looking at God knows how many pictures and such.  Gonna have to get in on this some more now that I've finally gotten my hands on PSP.

Whoo!  Till next time when my ass isn't draggin'!
