Delight - Drown My Sorrow
Delight (Drown My Sorrow)
All I want in my life is to be happy
So why do bad things continue to fall on me
I try to be a good person to no avail
I never thought that my karma would fail.
So I'll drown my sorrow in my delight
For I can feel no pain
I'll keep on smiling day and night
If it makes me insane
I don't have time to be held down
By suffering and plight
And so I urge myself to drown
My sorrow in delight
People wonder how I can maintain my cool
When all the forces around me treat me so cruel
They ask me how I can manage to be so nice
So I give them this piece of advice
That I drown my sorrow in my delight
For ignorance is bliss
There is no drug to heal a bite
That cuts as deep as this
And so because no doctor knows
Just how to make things right
I take my daily overdose
Of self-prescribed delight
[instrumental bridge]
I'll drown my sorrow in my delight
Because that's who I am
I won't give up, but I won't fight
I just don't give a damn
I'll tell the world to bring it on

The Day Your Luck Runs Out
You're cheating me, you're cheating you
But what's a guy supposed to do?
The sign says stop; you try to go
What we suggest, you just say no
You're tempting fate, these escapades
But little rebels have their ways
Of cheating life; of cheating death
Invincible? Don't hold your breath
If I were you
I'd be more careful with what I do
Because the day your luck runs out
Don't cry to me
That you received no warning
The day your luck runs out
Is gonna be
A bitter-tasting morning
Hear the voices in your head
Telling you to stay in bed
The day your luck runs out
You're skipping class, you're late for work
You're never home, oh what a jerk
Neglecting family and friends
With you, the drama never ends
We've told you once, we've told you twice
We've told you half a thousand times
The day will come, you won't forget
We won't be there to clean your mess
And you should know
We love to say we told you so
And on the day your luck runs out
Don't cry to me
That you received no warning
The day your luck run

Marie typed the letters and numbers into the computer: IB4E-08262009-318.  Unidentifiable by any normal means, but she had made note of the first four characters after the young man had left her office.  It was easy to remember, considering its coincidence with an old grammar addage.  She hit ENTER and away the computer went retrieving the ones and zeroes from some distant database to be translated into the test results.
This was the young man who had come in two days earlier for a drug screening.  Justin was his name.  He had been a nice boy; a polite young man who had ended every sentence with, and had addressed her as "ma'am".  Too few men do that anymore, she thought.  This was a good egg.
They had talked at length—perhaps longer than they should have—about the job he was in pre-hiring for.
"In this economy," he had said, "jobs are hard to get, and harder to keep."  She had n

Wearing Nothing But...
Off of work.
I go home now.
Close the door,
I'm alone now.
I take off my clothes,
And nobody knows
I'm wearing nothing but my underwear
Wife is out,
I don't fear her.
Strut my stuff
In the mirror.
Now I'm not a stud,
But damn, I look good
Wearing nothing but my underwear.
Maybe I'll go out and leave my room here.
No one's here and I am just a man.
Getting late and she will be home soon here,
So I'll go down and prance while I still can.
Through the halls,
Down the stairway,
Standing tall
In every doorway.
Because I'm allowed,
I make myself proud
Wearing nothing but my underwear.
Feeling gutsy, I go step outside now,
Standing safely in our own backyard.
There is nothing that can shake my pride now
Til I hear the slamming door of my wife's car...
It was fun
While it lasted
Now I will
Be lambasted
I try to explain
I keep my words plain...
Now we're both wearing just our underwear.
Up in bed, we snuggle and get closer...
Feeling something in my underwear...
I say, "Are you horny?" She says

Just Touching
Among the pleasures I desire most
Is the weight of another body on mine
Just touching
And knowing they're there
Because they want to be.
It must be nice.

At the Mercy of the Radio
First and foremost, I forgot my iPod.
Shame on me.
I should have known better.
And I certainly can't drive with nothing on.
The silence would drive me crazy.
So I'm at the mercy of the radio.
Snowball's chance in Hell that anything good is playing.
Preset 5.
97.3 The Sound.
Pop rock and indie shit—they're about to play Weezer.
"Buddy Holly" is only good so many times.
Preset 4.
103.5 WGRR Oldies
Preset 6.
"Frequency 94.1"
Some noise resembling music.
A computer probably made this.
Preset 1.
96.5 "96ROCK"
Hard rock and fart jokes.
Preset 2.
97.7 MaxFM
Preset 3.
104.7 WTUE.
Dayton static.
"Slither" by Velvet Revolver
If this came up in my iPod, I'd skip it.
I want to change the station again,
But this is the best thing I've found so far.
If I change the station,
And don't find anything better,
Then I've missed part of the song,
Mediocre as it may be.
The riff becomes

In the Dark
In the dark,
Nothing is impossible.
You may think you know what's there
But in the back of your mind,
You know that you don't.
You can't be sure of anything in the dark.
You see the doorway to a black room
And you assume there are four walls within
But that's no guarantee.
What lies beyond may be an endless abyss
Out of which nothing may return.
Every ghoul and ghost that ever haunted a nightmare
Every fabled creature that keeps a child awake at night
Waits for you in the dark.
Step inside.
Your assuredness will bring you in.
The darkness will welcome you and embrace you.
If it takes a liking to you, it may try to keep you forever.
We may not even hear you scream
But you will
And the darkness will smile.
Scoff if you must.
But one day you will find yourself in the dark
And you'll wonder if you're the only one there,
Knowing that you aren't alone.
Because you know that, in the dark
Nothing is impossible.

Post-Mortem To-Do List
You can get rid of my bed
     I won't be sleeping there anymore
You can give my desk away
     I have no use for it
Give my clothes away
     I won't be wearing them
     Odds are some else could use them
You can sell my guitar
     Though it only has five strings
You can give someone my alarm clock
     I don't need to be up for anything
I hope you find the key to my foot locker
     Though once you open it, you might wish you hadn't
     And may want to throw the whole foot locker away
     With everything inside
Go through my dresser and keep what you want
     I have no idea what's in there
     It's probably mostly crap
     I would seldom use anything I had in there
Give my books to s

Before You Reach the Clearing
Before you reach the clearing at the end of the path,
Take the time to look back
And see how far you've come,
How much you've accomplished,
And how much better things are
Because you were here.

Terms of Service Misinterpretation
Currently the fuss over the Terms of Service is Clause 16 and the only reason that this clause is causing a problem is because the people concerned with it stop reading there or read it in isolation without looking at all parts of the Terms.
But first things first- here's clause 16;

Smiley Xtra Add-on to Credit Artists
Smiley Xtra is a popular Firefox add-on which allows users to search a large database of smilies and easily insert the preferred one into forum posts, blog entries, etc.  The database currently includes over 2000 emotes submitted by the usership, which, needless to say, has not as a rule sought the permission of the author before submitting an emoticon.
Because emoticons are so small and so ubiquitous, people have become accustomed to seeing these art works as public property, unsourced and unattributed, floating out there in the ether for anyone to use wherever and whenever they want.
Smiley Xtra, in conjunction with the emoticonist community of deviantART, is taking a stand against this widespread disregard for the art form.
Coder James Baker is now working on a complete renovation of the extension. The next release will feature a brand new database of smilies authorized for use by and fully attributed t

What Legends Are Made Of IV
Quite recently, within the past few days, the Emoticon Legend was updated. Whilst this article is quite short, many deviants are unaware of this small but useful update. Hopefully, this news article will enlighten those few deviants of the change.
The update I am referring to, is the addition of a new emoticon to deviantART's official Emoticon Legend.

Phishing, Account Security and Who to Trust
Throughout last year and even now, just a few weeks into 2007, the staff has had to assist people in reclaiming their accounts after some carelessness allowed someone else to take control.
The systems we have here at deviantART will keep your account as secure as you allow it to be. I say this because the weakest link in account security is often the user and their habits or their willingness to trust someone else with their private account information.
One of the biggest problems with account security is often a weak password. A “weak” password is one easily guessed by someone who knows you, or knows your habits. For example, if you are an obvious fan of the Harry Potter series of books and movies then using the names of the characters or terms from the books would be considered a weak password which someone could easily guess in a few minutes time.
The best password consists of ten to twelve letters and numbers in a random jumble such as gqo106nsgt3

deviantART Remembers Joseph Barbera
This past Monday marked the passing of one of the last true giants in the animation world. To say Joseph Barbera was a legend in his field is simply an understatement.

Joseph Barbera was born on March 24 of 1911 and began his career quite earnestly as a delivery boy for a local tailor in Manhattan and later on, during the time of the Great Depression he attempted to become a cartoonist for a now defunct local New York Magazine. Fortunately for the world of animation, he didn't end up getting this job and instead found employment with the Van Buren Studio in 1932 as a writer and animator till the studio closed down in 1936, after which he fou
