Do Not CryDo not stand at my grave and weep:
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the softly fallen snow;
I am the gentle showers of rain.
I am the field of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the grateful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight.
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom.
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing.
I am in each lovely thing.
So do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there.
I did not die.

Do's And Don'ts of Commenting on deviantARTDeviantART is a wonderful website where any person can submit and produce their own artwork and writings. Of course, none of it would mean anything if it weren’t for the commenting system! Comments are a way for the community to express their thoughts and views on a person’s submissions and give their insights on the deviation. However, not all comments are good. So, today I will be offering advice on the dos and don’ts on commenting on deviantART.
1. Do. Have proper grammar and punctuation. It’s very hard to take someone who can’t capitalize, spell, or use proper grammar and punctuation seriously.
2. Don’t. Use Text Speak. Nothing makes me want to delete a comment faster than when it has an LMAO, OMG or LOL in it. It’s juvenile, it’s unnecessary, and please save it for your phones.
3. Do. Offer advice. This is one of the best things you can do for a deviant. Praise is great and all, but nothing can help a person bett
OTD: Amazing Spider-Man 2 part 2
“What the heck was that?” Steel asked. He then felt something on his forehead and peeled it off. He looked perplexed as he saw that it was a Sony sticker.
“Steel, the weirdest thing just happened.” Ray said as he, Loon, and Geek walked in, “We had this weird vision of Sony for a split second and, when it cleared away, I somehow wound up with The Last of Us, inFamous: Second Son, the God of War saga, and the first Amazing Spider-Man movie...eh, got three out of four of what I wanted.”
“My 3DS somehow disappeared and was replaced by a PSVita that had Uncharted: Golden Abyss in it.” Lunatic said before adding, in a sad voice, “I didn’t even save my progress in Pokemon...”
“And, somehow, I wound up with all this Sony merchandise in a backpack.” Geek said, unzipping the backpack and showing the contents to Steel, “Camcorders, headsets, music devices, y

(A large man with a thin mustache walked over to his closet. He pulled out a Kingdom Hearts shirt before walking out, smirking.
OUTTA THE DVD!
A serious face, a subtle face- You show a lot of faces
The man walked out with a smug look.
As Steel walked by, he passed a black katana and a jar. Two spirits emerged—a samurai warrior and a woman clad in white.
BLACK SHOGUN AND KAZUMI
Even if you're told so, you still don't know what to do
Steel waved as he passed an anthropomorphic skunk and smacked the head of an anthro tiger wearing a Hawaiian shirt. The tiger wheeled around, looking irritated.

All people have a part they're hiding in themselves, right?
Steel yelped as a girl around his age with long, black hair and lavender eyes quickly hugged him.
Like that, like this, like there, I can't say it in words immediately
Steel got free and immediately saw a white, ferret-li

-We find Sergeant Spider, sleeping in his room. He was enjoying a nice well deserved sleep…until…
“The survival horror genre in Resident Evil is dead! And you can thank RE6 for that”
“Anyone who says they love Resident Evil 6 is a damn fool and needs to kill themselves.”
“If Resident Evil 5 was a mercy killing to the series, than Resident Evil 6 was full blown torture”
“I hate this game!”
“Fuck Resident Evil 6”
“One of the Top 10 worst games of all time”
“Die! Die! This game needs to Die!”
“It’s not scary anymore!”
“You like Resident Evil 6? Well then you no longer are allowed to have an opinion.”

The November Man Review
I'm just going to say this loud and clear, I like Pierce Brosnan as James Bond. Okay, I can see the criticisms regarding him that he played it too safe but I like him in the role all the same. But that being said, Die Another Day is the worst of his Bond work (as well as being the worst James Bond movie ever made) so his tenure ended with a whimper than a bang. And he seems to have moved on from playing the character. And yet, he suddenly felt the need to do a Spy Thriller. Given that he has his own production company, he apparently decided to option the rights to Bill Granger's novel There Are No Spies as a potential vehicle. There are a lot of comparisons to James Bond and I could see that but I don't want to linger on that for too long.
Pierce Brosnan does carry the film well enough. He has a good enough range and is never boring to watch. He even has good on screen chemistry with the other actors around him and bounce off each other well. Hell, his best moments are in fact with Luk
Logic's Insight: Dragon Age 2 1/2
Where to start?
Blunt Honesty is better than nothing, I guess...here it goes...
I like Dragon Age 2 and I believe that it is a good RPG. It retains the strategic value of Origin's gameplay, only now the combat is more aggressive and quicker which forces players to think quicker. It's central themes are profound with a great deal of applicability to the real world and a continuation of throwing the player various moral dilemnas that help them shape their character. It's party cast had several strong characters with interesting outlooks and arcs. The story was mostly good, featuring antagonists that aren't strictly evil with defined goals, characteristics and the player character of Hawke can even work with these antagonists at times and agree/debate with them.
For these and other reasons, I wholeheartedly say that DA2 is good.
Dragon Age 2 is objectively and clearly inferior to Dragon Age: Origins. Which is why it deserves at least half of the backlash that it has rec
Zodiac is a crime drama film directed by David Fincher, 160 minutes long, starring Jake Gylennhall, the plot focuses on the true events surrounding the search for an elusive murderer who was active during the 60s/70s in North America, known for sending coded messages/threats/announcing his crimes to the police .
This stands above the average Panic room, The game and Alien 3 but not Fight club or Seven where Fincher’s films are concerned. It can feel very bloated, dense, lengthy and heavy at points, suffocating even and sprawling in nature. However Fincher brings his trademark atmosphere, lighting, cinematography to the table here and combining that with an intricate plot that’s as difficult to predict as it is to follow if you’re not paying attention, the personal drama surrounding the character portrayed by Gylennhall along with a paranoia and fear of the unknown, sense of murkiness, backed up by the killings themselves creates an oft creepy, unset
A Dish Best Served Huge RPNote: (this was an idea from the same name by the story from Rapscalion from this page:http://mg-sg.pbworks.com/w/page/5824809/A%20Dish%20Best%20Served%20Huge%20By%20Rapscalion.)

*Since your family have had the history of being tall so you try to do everything into eating right and exercising.
*You find out about this new product that helps you grow (can be anything.)
*Other (you can decide but must be ideas on how only YOU can GROW.)
Scotland: Yes or No?
The future of Scotland, my home, was given to us. We had it in our hands and we held it for a moment. After two years of listening, of thinking, of debating it all came down to two little words.
Yes or No.
The 'Yes Scotland' campaign told Scotland facts. The 'Better Together' campaign told us more. Each side said that the others lied, the other believed in a fantasy -a dream world.
We were told we would lose things like our NHS health care, our banks, our news papers, our jobs and even our way of life!
Then we were told that our NHS was under attack from England's plans to privatise our NHS, that our banks were already in England and run by English businessmen, our news papers were printed in England anyway except the odd one or two, we would create new jobs and opportunities and that our only change to our life style would be who we answered to -Holyrood instead of Westminster.
Scotland was split down the mid

hey newton, gravity's flawedi.
starting anew from the flutter
and the sputter of lungs.
a vacant sea filled with feathers
and tumultuous clatter,
ribs in a treacherous pattern
resembling exiting rungs.
i want to wrestle the angels,
your tendency is the ladder.
involved with full indiscretion,
trading lazy for lace.
unspool the curse of the long-
limbs in a languorous flexion
i like the stab of the ankles,
you need the curves intersected.
opting to cull my extents
with trans-dimensional vigor.
spent my dysphoric corrections
on reconnecting lax ends.
lips in a spurious accent
feign a passionate rigor.
i tie myself to the anchor,
you extricate and ascend.
