Unlikely ChoicesOut of over six billion people that roam the planet, what gives you, as an individual, the right to be loved?Unlikely Choices3 years ago in Philosophical More Like This
You know you're not the best. You never will be. Your life has been a wreck from the beginning, and all that time you've been running to the point of exhaustion. Running from your family. Responsibility. Yourself. This is one race track that has no finish line, my dear. You're like a bird without legs. Always on the move, never landing to take a rest. The only time you'll touch ground is when you die!
And don't even get me started on all those shames you know you'll never tell anyone. Those little secrets that eat away at your sanit
Movie mysterys: JP,TLW.Mystery of today, featuring a weird, unexplained scene from Spielburgs The Lost World (a classic by all means).

Still don't remember?, here are some notable quotes:
Ludlow, "wheres the crew?!"
Ingen security guard, "all over the place..." overlooking a dangling, dismembered arm on the wheel.
Lets broaden our minds:
Now here's a really strange and curious one, I'm sure this all bugged us as a audience, what ever happened to the crew of the Venture? most would say the T-Rex got them
Your Truth In coming into this world, you don't know immediately who you'll be. From the start, you are subject to the fundamental of diversity. You become someone yourself and because of that, you are special. Your sexual orientation, your age, your gender, ethnicity, race, culture, religion...they are all a part of who you are as an individual. Its something you should always keep in mind throughout your life. Ponder your qualities, and come to understand them.Your Truth2 years ago in Emotional More Like This

Eclipse- the summary of a painfully bad SagaEclipse- Book Three...maybe.Eclipse- the summary of a painfully bad Saga10 months ago in Articles & Interviews More Like This
So, continuing the story after New Moon, we see Bella happily wedged in a ferocious love triangle between a dog (which is what Jacob the Werewolf is, essentially) and a Vampire who sparkles more than Tinker bell.
But shockingly, the love triangle isn't the ONLY thing going on here. I mean, sure, that's the focus for 90% of the book, but a whole 10% is reserved for a fight scene!
Whatttt?! Maybe SM realized that sweet nothings got boring when you were just a peeping tom, looking into a love triangle in a non-existent world... a love triangle and nothing else.
Anyways, this book is even foggier in my memory than
On The Use Of DeathA little bit of helpful advice to those young padawan writers out there. The following applies to the writers of ALL prose, no matter what genre you're in, so listen up.On The Use Of Death6 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
Death in the use of storytelling is a very tricky thing, and I've seen plenty of writers and even filmmakers screw it up with the greatest of ease.
Now, please, don't get me wrong, death is a VERY powerful and emotionally motivating tool to use in prose, and can be the deciding factor in whether or not your story is cream or crap. By all means, it's there to be made use of, but you've got to remember that it's no arbitrary thing.
First of all, once you've made the decision

Spawn of Darkness When publishing one's written works through the Internet, I find a great way to begin is through writing fanfiction. Rather infamous, I know; fanfiction is wonderful in that it gives a pre-formed universe, and unless you absolutely butcher whatever language you're writing in or destroy previously formed, canon characters, the reader tends to hail you as some sort of a God. Which is hardly surprising, because these are rare; ordinarily, I find fanfiction to be filled with Mary Sue's, poor description filled with over-used adjectives, regular cliche's, boring plots and the aforementioned butchering of its language. Then, of course, there isSpawn of Darkness4 years ago in Reviews & Guides More Like This

Click. Click. Click. The girl stared at her computer with a blank look. Click. Click. She had found a song on the internet that she particularly liked. It was a song she'd known since she was a carefree child, but she'd always loved it, even now. With a shine in her eyes she rested her head on her arms as it started playing.
Almost as soon as it began, her mind ran away from her body and she was filled with memory and the spirit of her imagination.
The first place she visited transported herself back to 6th grade. They had to do a project for drama class. It was to
Proper CriticsmSomething which I see less and less of these days, and it's a shame.Proper Criticsm6 years ago in General Non-Fiction More Like This
When someone asks for crits, most people I see either go "AMAZING LOL 10 OUT OF 10" or start flaming the spriter. Either that, or they randomly post a link to their own topic or their own sprites and steal the crits off the original spriter. This is plain rude. This is NOT criticising. [Obviously, if they don't ask for crits, don't go into huge detail xD]
Criticism is examining the sprite in detail, commenting on the good things about it AND the things that could be improved. Yes, you should always find something good to say about the sprite, never post purely negative cri

i just rememebered that today, and it hit me. hard.
my days are numbered, and there's only so much time to see as much as i can.
to read books and collect their stories.
to write and paint until my fingers go numb.
to tell people that even when their skies are dark, there's still sun behind those clouds, and it can't wait to shine in their minds again.
i'm not afraid of death, but at the same time i know i'll miss this old place.
i love it. the songs, the sights, the scenes, the people.
it's a terrible world, but at the same time so very beautiful.

I dont know if youll ever read this, but I write it anyways. Youll probably never read this letter, about things Ill probably never say, and things you probably never realized I thought. So until I figure out how exactly to tell you everything, this letter is going to sit in my drawer as a letter youll never read.
Might as well start this letter from the very beginning, going back all the way to when I first saw you all those years ago. I couldnt believe anyone could be anywhere near as adorable as you. I made up my mind as soon as I saw you to find some way to get to know you. I di

What's the point of religion?
We spend our lifes searching for answers. Is there something after death, anything?
Each of our ideas, ideals, beliefs, life-styles. All as plausible as each other. Each one well thought out. Each one when presented with arguements, will fight them.
We all seek the idea that suits us best. The theory we think makes more sense. We preach to one another, try to turn each other to our veiw-points. For what? A future we cannot foretell?
Life results in death; in ALL cases. Must we persist is pushing our beliefs upon others? Must we spend hour after hour of our lives wondering what our true fate may hold?

Something happens: an argument, a misunderstanding,
The bonds of trust that were once so strong are broken.
Love disappears, and that sick, clenched feeling in your stomach just won't go
That's I can't trust my heart.
I trust my ears, my eyes, just not my heart.
Unless I want it broken.
What happens in front of you or even behind your back is what matters the most.
But sadly, it's realized the least.
A pretty face often hides lies, smooth words, treachery.
Living a life ruled by love leads to love's destruction.
Living a free life, a good life, leads to true hap
Expiration Dates"How are you so comfortable being someone that no one will remember once you die?"Expiration Dates2 years ago in Emotional More Like This
It wasn't an insult. The both of us knew that. Being so scarcely known was a frightening thing to think about, I supposed. Not standing out enough to be recorded in a magazine or a newspaper or a history book. Having to settle with being remembered only by family and friends, if that. A small group that would only keep your memory around until they died and then would become forgotten themselves, most likely.
I didn't even bother peeking up at you; content with watching my right pointer-finger trace the three year old tattoo on your throat. This was a topic
Dark AlleysI never take walks at night, so I can't say I've ever seen a "dark alley."Dark Alleys7 months ago in Stories & Vignettes More Like This
As a writer of deeply depressing and blandly droll stories, I've always thought about them.
Once, I wrote a vignette about a girl in the woods who came across three houses, all perfectly alike, and the tall, narrow slips of space between the buildings were immediately apparent to her. To her alarm, she realized drunken men and women were tumbling from the shadows, out of that space, where they had been completely unseen before. How long was the distance across?
But I live in the suburbs. Are there truly dark alleys to come across or even dare to walk through? All th
