In a section there was a part about the second death.
"Everyone" fears it - not the physical death but the death
you undergo when you are forgotten.
So many of us try to fight it off
with quirky Facebook photos,
outrageous and nonsensical tweets,
Anything is fair game when trying to get attention.
But is that really the attention everyone wants
or are they really trying to look for the universal love
every sentient being covets -
all the while committing to the wrong effort, erroneously
thinking that they'll get exactly what they want?
I've given up on garish attention
yet I'm none the wiser
when it comes to finding
every human being desires.
I'm slowly being forgotten -
I don't want to be
yet I don't know how to stop it.
Facebook FacadeWhile lost in the dark umbra,Facebook Facade by TheArtistAsian
I'm told by a classmate that I look more masculine and taller
on my Facebook profile than I do in real life.
All I say in response is a casual, "Ok,"
and go on.
When I'm back in the radiance of day, I realize
I'm hardly masculine in real life
let alone vain at all.
Deviant and Art MentionsMentions: Connecting People.
Mentions are a new, highly requested feature that makes engaging friends and artists in conversation more dynamic than ever before.
What is a Mention?
A Mention is when a deviant’s username, icon, or artwork is included in a comment or Journal. Mentions create links to the deviants or artwork you include, allowing you to highlight artists and engage deviants with ease.
Links to pages on deviantART can quickly be distinguished by their bold, dark-blue color, while external links are darker and have an arrow indicating you are leaving deviantART.
Deviants you mention are notified in the new Mentions section of the Message Center, making engaging and involving others in conversation a simple, hassle-free experience.
How to Mention
There are four ways to mention a deviant.
I am a part-time artist who tries to make art as much as possible in a normal life.|
I work with Windows XP and Windows 7.
I use Photoshop 6 to adjust my photos. I will only change the contrast and brightness in all my photos unless I state otherwise.
I'm also in dire need of Abode Creative Suite 6 (or whatever is the most current CS) and Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 4 (or whatever is the current version).
