    I have a fond memory of a ridiculous thing that I did way back in elementart school. I was on a 1week long camping field-trip held by the school. We were going to this place in the woods where we would do a bunch of activities. The days went by and they went by quite well without some major disaster happening. (Which is a miracle, because putting a bunch of overhyped elementary school kids in wooden cabins and letting them have free time has many ways to go wrong. ) Anyhoo, I was in the same cabin as two kids who were both afraid of the dark. Ah, wonderful. Great. Why me. One of the kids were pretty cool about it but the other girl INSISTED she wouldn't go to sleep as late as possible, although the rest of the group was tired from rowing boats around a lake in the rain for 3 hours. She had, for some reason, brought a bunch of christmas lights???? with her and hung them around the bunk bed. This stopped me from getting any proper rest whatsoever, since I was slepping under her bunk. or more like not-sleeping, to be literal. Anywayys I woke up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom when one of my teeth fell out. I didnt even notice it was wobbly untilthen so I was just "oh well thats inconvinient"... I just stared into the dark contemplating if i should stuff my tooth in my bag and forget about it, since I was tired as anything from not getting my rest. My eyes were literally trying to close themselves. But I reasoned that wasn't a good idea, since...well... okay random confession: I was a very innocent child. I believed in very ridiculous things longer than I should have. I was a derp. And I still sort of am. Ahem so anyways, I was too tired to think straight so one of my first jumbled up thoughts was "ah no I cant throw it away I need to give it to the toothfairy unless i wont get cash." I was somehow young enough to half-believe in the tooth fairy but old enough to love free cash. welp. I was a strange child. My next thought never existed, and I followed my instincts and blindly walked out of the cabin. It was dark outside, so dark i couldnt see anything in front of me. And it did NOT help that my eyesight is terrible. I somehow managed to navigate my way to one of the teacher's cabins, which was a miracle from god by itself. I was still stuck in a sleep?awake?no one knows trance and randomly knocked on the door. The teacher, now that I think about it, must have freaked out. It was over midnight or something, and everyone was supposed to be back in the cabins. I remember seeing her look really confused when she opened the door and saw me. She asked me what was wrong, and she probobly dreaded that somewthing bad had happened at my cabin. I sleepily explained? rambled. yes. I rambled to her that my tooth fell out, i had to give it to the tooth fairy, blablablah. This is probably the dumbest thing I ever said in my entire life, and the teacher was very kind not to dismiss me. She sweetly told me that shed keep the tooth and she would give it back at the end of the week so she could give it back at the end of camp so then i could take it home and..give it to the tooth fairy. (Oh god im cringing as I write this now) Anyways, Me, the kid who was out of my sane mind at the time, insisted "noooOOOoo I ca n just take it back and put it under my pillow righ t now" which made sence to me at the time? I guess. The teacher still did not dismiss me and tried to reason that "the fairy might not know youre here and not get to give you money" and tried to make me think logically? without killing my innocence/ignorance. I instead of agreeing and handing over my *** tooth like a sane kid, argued that the tooth fairy always knew where i was, otherwise how could she keep track of all the moving and travelling I did??. Honestly if I was the teacher I would probably have just given up and be like "look, kid. fairys arent real. go back to sleep." which is maybe the noraml human reaction and maybe just proof that im a terrible person. Anyhoo the teacher's responce mustve been different because I rememberreluctantly handing over the tooth, talking a bit more about random things that a elementary schooler would talk about after losing too much sleep, and trudging back to my cabin to collapse in my bed. a couple of years later I suddenly realized how much of a saint that teacher was for not shattering my ...stupidity...? at that very moment. She probably was trying her absolute hardest to not shout/laugh at me now that I look back on it. Anyways yeah I did a lot of veryyyy ridiculous things when i was younger, and I probably still do. This was just what came to my mind first! I have no idea why i suddenly remebered and shared this, i just hope yall wont judge me too hard for this now. On the behalf of my exuse: I was sleepy, tired, and a kid. Not a good combination for logic.

    Criminal idol episode 8. Lyrics~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ *Gasp* There's note on the floor with a briefcase. Note is fused to the boards from its old age. Briefcase is locked. Contents: Unknown. They wrote: My daddy daddy was a good good gentleman This alley alley was our home home without a bed. Homeless ain't nu'in child. Rich are the hearts that smile. I try to be the perfect child but it's hard to be. Life is often wild and the kids are mean. We still bathe twice a month! Don't call me greasy! This heart that you gave me is strong enough. This path that you paved for me has made me tough. I hope you forgave me for all my doubts. This life you've made is worth the ups and downs. One more time for the sake of God. I swear I'll give the best I've got. I won't let things keep me down. (Oh~ No.) One more time for the sake of love. I know that I am strong enough. This life, this soul, was made for good, for good. (Yeah.) I still remember taking showers in the bathrooms at school. Sorry about the mess. Also, thank you for the sink. He offered you a job that day, did you know his face? Did you know that we would become like slaves? Slaves to the mafia. This place ain't good for ya. Remember when you bought those rings for you and me? I won't forget what they mean. How you'd signal to show your sympathy. This heart that you gave me is strong enough. This path that you paved for me has made me tough. I hope you forgave me for all my doubts. This life you've made is worth the ups and downs. One more time for the sake of God. I swear I'll give the best I've got. I won't let things keep me down. (Oh~ No.) One more time for the sake of love. I know that I am strong enough. This life, this soul, was made for good, for good. One more time for the sake of God. I swear I'll give the best I've got. I won't let things keep me down. (Oh~ No.) One more time for the sake of love. I know that I am strong enough. This life, this soul, was made for good. I remember some nights in the uproar of their little gang fights you would comfort me with protection. Father thank you. I remember one night, when the boss came, you were told to fight (right?) for the agency so you left me but you flashed your ring. Never turned to look back but you knew that I was still behind (yeah?) as your right hand would be signaling in secrecy. You lead me to the front line of the battle. We were loosing big time yet you cackled as we walked right past to freedom, at last. Sometimes life can be pretty hard, So to the ones that finds this note: The code to the briefcase is the name of what lies inside. It is a symbol of unity, friendship, and shared lives. It is a reminder to be understanding, to trust, and to forgive. Please only take as many as you need and return the clues back to their former locations. Sincerely, The Ring Bearer. One more time for the sake of God. I swear I'll give the best I've got. I won't let things keep me down. (Oh~ No.) One more time for the sake of love. I know that I am strong enough. This life, this soul, was made for good, for good. (Yeah.)

    The learning of a child... (Apologizes for the length) [2/2/18] As a child you learn, what's right and what's wrong. As a child you learn, how to be strong. As a child you learn, about how to write. As a child you learn, you need to be right. As a child you learn, the importance of friendship. As a child you learn, that you can be friendless. As child you learn, that you should be kind. As a child you learn, that loved ones are blind. As a child you learn, hurt can still heal. As a child you learn, that healing takes years. As a child you learn, you need to grow up. As a child you learn, your best is not enough. As a child you learn, this world can be cruel. As a child you learn, the cruelness of school. As a child you learn, independence is key. As a child you learn, you're not allowed to dream. As a child you learn, that you only lie As a child you learn, that you are a crime. As a child you learn, that you've been wronged. As a child you learn, comforts from songs. As a child you grow, to decipher what's true. As a child you grow, to become you. As a child you grow, from what you know, As a child you grow, from all that woe. As a child you see, the future is bleak. As a child you see, that you seem weak.

As a child you find, someone who inspires. As a child you find, they help when it's dire. As a child you reach, to finally belong, As a child you reach, and find you're strong. As a child you search, and grasp hope. As a child you search, to find resolve. As a child you are shown, that you're not alone. As a child you are shown, you're not on your own. As a child you are shown, friends come from afar. As a child you are shown. they also have scars. As a child you learn, that if you hold on. As a child you learn, your friends bring a new dawn.

    This has been something I always used to do and now want to get back into the habit of. I tell bad jokes so people can laugh. Whether you laugh at the joke, or me for how bad my jokes are is irrelevant as long as you can at least snicker(TM). Did you hear about the arrogant trumpet player who always wins music awards? He's always tooting his own horn.

    Friends, While I am not the wisest of people I do believe that we have a wonderful group of people in this community. A group that could be used to create something fantastic. I'm not quite sure what that is yet, but I think we should begin operation Black Static. Our mission, to influence the lives of those around us for good, by any means necessary. I am not certain what this may take the form of, but that's where everyone comes in. What can we do or create to help other people? So let us know, do you need help with something? Is it something the community can help you out with? This is where you seek help and offer your help to others when you are able. We all have our strengths and weaknesses, but sometimes the thing that takes the most strength is reaching out to others for help. This could be as simple as help with homework, or to review an essay, proofread a resume. (Those are things I can do.) But with a community this large I'm sure we can find people who can help you with art, to learn to play an instrument, start a business, learn a language, the sky is the limit here. So, if you want help, or need someone to talk to, or just want something to do. This is where we start. Joseph Bohan One of the Real Ones.

    WOW!! This is amazing stuff, @Einjiru Kurosaki!!! I'm super impressed. As i was looking at them, I am reminded of a few different animation studios. You have a great talent and a great style. The fact that it only took you 1-2 hours for each character shows a lot for how much time you've put into your talent as an artist. I hope you stick around and keep posting stuff for us all to enjoy!

    Usually I would write a 17 paged essay, like Ray, hehehe.... but so much of value has already been said by everyone who posted before me. There's a lot to feed on, there. =) The only thing I would add is to, perhaps, search for the root of your problem, here. Believe it or not, all of the problems you listed may have a very important lesson and virtue in common. And you have everything it takes to learn and grow towards it. You're actually already on your way there... I know this because you have a beautiful and big heart - You, of all people, will be able to overcome this obstacle. I know this to be true. I have 100% total faith in you. ^^ This is something I had to learn, and so hopefully you can learn it quicker and easier than I did. ^^ So what is it? Love. You care a lot about people. You've said so yourself and you've shown it when you interact with me and others. However, you also cling to people because you care a lot about them. But love... <=) ahh~ --- Oh sweet freedom of love... Love is beautiful because it is giving and wants for nothing. - in wanting for nothing it is freeing. You care a lot about what people think, what people do, how people see you... especially those you hold dear. In your heart, you want them to care for you, be fond of you, and treat you well. But what you need to do is NOT CARE, so much, about what they do or what they think... but instead, just be caring... regardless of their flaws or thoughts. If you stop worrying about what they think and just love on them... not worry about what evils they have done but just meet them where they are and love on them... you don't end up with the feeling of longing, or a lack of be-longing. Right now, you may cling to people or feel lonely because you want someone to care for you and love on you. But a loving heart doesn't demand or desire those things... It simply wants the best for others (and themselves), and tries to help people achieve that. Your value is infinite and doesn't change based on your relationships with other people or how productive and talented you are... Don't let the world fool you. A lot of times we search for others to make us feel valuable or loved but that is, unfortunately, so backwards! You have a great big heart and the right personality to be a super caring and loving person... and you already are. You just need 1 thing: Don't Care about peoples Thoughts and Actions. Care about the actual Person. And be a little nicer to yourself, too... love yourself that same way - not based on your past failures or successes. Simply unconditionally... because you want the best for you, from this moment forwards... and you want to be happy. So be free and give yourself freely - and do your best to be your best. You will find strength and joy in that. The feeling of being lonely will always find you, until the day you die. You can go through spurts where it isn't there, but it will find you on a silent evening or on a stroll through the park. It will determine how you live out every single day of your life. The feeling of being poor will always be there, until the day you die. Some days may be better than others but you'll never have enough... and it will determine how you live out almost every day of your life. That is - until you learn to stop letting those things determine how you see your life. Once you realize that, all along, it was an unhealthy desire and you stop letting such things determine how you feel... you stop feeling that sensation of "i don't have enough money" or "I don't have enough toys, the neighbor has more" or "I don't have enough friends"... You simply feel like you have what you need... in fact, you start to feel as though almost everything you have is in excess, way more than you need. When you love and give yourself without desiring anything, from the other person, you start working in reverse. You prove to your heart that is has the ability to give, even if it feels like it's alone and empty... nothing to give... You end up realizing you have a lot more than you knew... and a lot to be grateful for. Then, instead of wallowing in what you don't have or what's not perfectly the way you wanted it, suddenly your cup is overflowing and you're glowing with an authentic joy that YOU decided to make for yourself, rather than waiting for someone else to give it to you. Waiting for others to make us feel good is no way to live, it'll be a GIGANTIC let down almost Every Single Day... and trust me, I KNOW.. oh buddy do I know. Anyways. I'm sure you knew all of this. but reminders are important, sometimes. ^^ Sorry if I was a tad blunt, but I know you're strong enough to take it. =) Oh look at that. nvm. I did end up writing a 17 paged essay. LOL

    Adversity… Most of the time, this word brings negative thoughts to our mind. We think of struggles, problems, failures, etc., but probably most of all, PAIN. I’ve only met a few people who say they actually ENJOY feeling pain… Honestly, I may be a bit skeptical of that statement… I certainly don’t like pain!! It HURTS!!! When you come up against a challenge, what is your first response? Do you run toward it? Away from it? Do you try to dance around it, or procrastinate? Maybe you just try to put it out of your mind? If you’re like me, your response may vary depending on how you feel that day. But, deep down we know that simply following our feelings at any given moment is generally not a good recipe for happiness. To just get blown around in the winds of our emotions isn’t going to fix much. I think a good start is to recognize adversity for what it truly is… A building block for something greater. If you are experiencing the pain of a challenge, the knowledge that you can grow from it will bring comfort and hope - two of our best emotional painkillers! Then, you can take it up a notch by being THANKFUL for the adversity, because you know that what’s on the other side might just blow your mind with awesomeness!! At this point, you become so mentally solid, that you’ll skate right through challenges that used to be crippling for you. You CAN make it. There are times when this is so tough to do… The situation may be super complicated, and you may need some help. One thing that’s so cool about the community at BSS is the love and care people show to others. On our previous website, the “Don’t Worry Wednesday” forum was the place where we saw people voicing their particular challenges, and getting some much needed encouragement. We kept it around for that very purpose. ***DISCLAIMER*** We are NOT professional psychologists or psychiatrists, and we do not pretend to know the answers to all the problems that people have. We only offer love and encouragement for people as they go through difficult times.

    Have you ever been caught in the trap of comparing yourself to others? I would imagine every single one of us would say yes if we were honest with ourselves… The whole world seems to be set up in a way that almost forces us to do this. We’re trained through the media to think that we should look like supermodels, live in trendy homes and drive the newest car possible. They tell us that we'll be happy then. WRONG! The truth is, we are all individuals. Each of us has a unique life with unique relationships and circumstances. We have different sets of flaws and struggles to handle as well. The person who thinks they're better than someone else is just as misled as the person who thinks that they're worse. Each of us has infinite value and dignity, and no one can take it away. “There is a time in every man’s education when he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance; that imitation is suicide; that he must take himself for better, for worse, as his portion; that though the wide universe is full of good, no kernel of nourishing corn can come to him but through his toil bestowed on that plot of ground which is given to him to till. The power which resides in him is new in nature, and none but he knows what that is which he can do, nor does he know until he has tried.” -Ralph Waldo Emerson Now, I certainly don't agree with all of the philosophies of Emerson and the Transcendentalist movement, but I think this statement gives us a big key in how we look at our lives. The point is that each of us is having a one-of-a-kind experience on this planet. You simply cannot compare one life to another--doing so would be grossly unfair. Our job is simply to do the best we can with the life we’ve been given. It is a priceless gift, complete with joy, pain, beauty, love and a countless myriad of complications. Every single one of us has gone through hard times… They’re just different. When we see one another, rather than look with the torment of comparison, we should look upon each other with grace and understanding. With that, some of the deepest wounds can be healed.

    lunarjade1004, thank you for posting, it is really brave to lay out your feelings and emotions like this, and I respect you for that! I remember in the past when I felt down, I would keep things all bottled up inside and it really hurt, so you're already stronger than me there. I am so sorry that you are going through so much; when a house doesn't feel like a home, one can feel so cold and alone. For parents, they have gone through life with their mindset and experiences. It may be difficult, if not (albeit less common) impossible to change a way of thinking that has spanned decades. Yet that doesn't mean that you must change to fit their mold. You are who you are, individual and existing and just as important as everyone else here, for noone, and I mean NOONE, has lived or will live your special life. So through gradual exposure, I do pray that your parents will be more accepting. You mentioned good memories and loving care in the past. Those were not lies; those are genuine feelings and memories. Even if they may be distant at times, such bonds are not so easily broken. Have hope, but do not live a lie that causes you so much pain. I would encourage you to try and draw out those connections once again, and it will then be easier to speak with them about more difficult things when it seems right. As we move through life, people will come and go, but that does not mean that you are alone. With each positive interaction, we take a little bit of them to carry with us moving forward. I have had good friends from years ago that have just fallen away through distance and time, friends that I shared great memories with. Yet although there is loss, there still lies joy within what we experienced and learned together and from one another. It sounds like you are afraid and concerned that people will eventually leave you alone, but they will always make up who you are if you want them to. And of course it is just as possible that some people indeed stay in touch! With the right group of friends, you may not physically see each other for months but you can still communicate just as closely as before, regardless of distance. It is hard to keep interacting with everything you have gone and are going through, but once you find the people who click, it will make the tough interactions to get there all worth it. At the same time, we all need some time to ourselves. I don't want to suggest trying to develop many new bonds when you aren't ready, so take some time out to collect yourself. Know that there are people out there who share your thoughts, your interests, but sometimes it takes time and effort to find them. Look at the internet; I don't know where you are but I nonetheless have the pleasure of hearing from and interacting with you! Our minds and our space seems safe to reside in, but alone we are limited in what we can achieve. You will also be surprised by what people truly think of you. When our minds run wild (I'm guilty of this too!) we impose words and thoughts into other people's minds, but in truth it may not be what they truly feel. I find it helpful to think of each person as an individual, where we differ only in our experiences that got us up to this point. Even though our own experiences may have had certain outcomes, we can always do our best to not impose biases and stigmas on new people. I promise, not everyone hates you! Nor do you have to feel obligated to interact with people who give you negative energy, like the person you used to like. In my opinion I think it might be best to be direct and tell them that you prefer or appreciate if they leave you alone. Not everyone picks up on signals well, so maybe just putting it in words will get through to them. Stay strong and stay inspired. You have love and compassion to share, and there will be people out there who will return it. Don't lose faith in finding them! Don't feel bad about reaching out to people for guidance or just to vent. You don't have to take my thoughts word for word, but I hope there are some nuggets in there that you can use either directly or as stepping stones for something else. You are not alone, no matter how dark and bleak it may seem at times. Thank you for being you!

    Dear Friends, I have spent the last 24ish hours reviewing, revisiting, re-listening to all of your entries for this contest. They have all be so fantastic to see as a part of this page and as I see the people who participated. I think you can learn a lot about people from the art that they share and the story they tell. I'm hesitant to do this because I'm afraid if I start with who wins then everyone will leave, but I don't want to give people false hope by starting with everyone who's work I admired, but because I want everyone to be encouraged and to encourage you to collaborate with your other artists on something amazing. To learn and to grow together. I'm going to start with the people whose stuff I enjoyed, but wasn't able to pick because I only game myself three options and I'm broke. First, @kirby157, whose works, don't stand out for extraordinary color, but are instead a view of life perceived. That they are amazing works of creativity, but also just an observation of the prompt itself, from whales to chickens to cubes. So thank you for sharing your wonderful works of art. @Jahotsafits reminded me of the simpler times when drawing was something you could do anywhere with a simple lined notebook and some pencils, pens, and crayons. I appreciate the unique style too. Definitely rocking the spooky Halloween theme. @Viv your detail to your pictures and the perspective you took on both of them were quite interesting, they we're definitely in the spooky category and the time that you must have put into such works is impressive. @Aqilless thanks for giving it a shot with your Kitsune? Person. I didn't realize Cheetos were your thing, but your art definitely matches the prompt and I think it's a really good caricature. It's like one of those drawings you used to be able to cut out and play with and make scenes out of @Kaela MeliusMel and you were worried about what you could post. And then you post a wonderful drawing of a the wizardess? Witch? Sorry bad with words. Luna. I think it was well done and fits really well with all of Inktober keep up the good work. @annaports you attempted quite a feat covering ADVENTURER. And I'm glad you gave it a try at 6 minutes of StaticP voice fluctuations finishing it is a monumental undertaking in itself. And I encourage you to work on it more if you decide. Because as I'm sure you found it takes a lot of practice. And you can make something amazing. @Toasty your voice is incredible. Especially considering all of your entries were exclusive you and not other audio. And from a phone no less. I was supper impressed with your time and dedication to hit so many of those prompts. I encourage you to keep making covers and practicing. @Hailey Hepworth While I'm not sure you considered your cover an entry, but if waving through the window was, it was a great cover, even with limited hardware to do it. So thank you for sharing and we hope to hear more. @Zion Mesa My friend your lyrics are amazing and truely I hope you find a beat to match them or perhaps someone here who can help you to make that music come to life. The words are definitely of you I can not express how amazed I am at the growth and emotion you show in your writing. Which leaves us with the three winners as it were. @Monkerstar had a fantastic cover of Detective Detective. And I mean if you haven't already you should listen to it. I have it posted below. He spent a lot of time working on it. And he even worked with I'm guessing a family member To get the mix right. Which I really hope is something that we all try to do here. To work together to create something amazing. I was impressed because it has all of the play of the original but without the sharpness, which I thought was better with your voice. Anyway props to you! Jonno_Taylor_-__Detective_Detective_-_English_English_cover @Bre the Kitty I am not an artist, I never have been and never will be, but for some reason this picture was the one that really got me. I think it's cause it reminds me of the things we had to color in school, but you drew it yourself. And it fully captures the prompt of the day as precious. (I want to preface this by saying I judged based on art and the ability it had to convey the emotion of the prompt) I think one of the most important things about your post wasn't actually in the art itself. I find that one of the things that encouraged me the most is that you opened up our contest. That the first piece of art, that the first entry wasn't anything other that a precious little cat in a pumpkin. And that I find to be amazing on a whole different level aside from this contest. So feast your eyes on this precious little gem. and that leaves @Matlan, dear friend your writing was fantastic, fo a time I couldn't decide if I should toss it because it didn't stick to one prompt or love it because it hit all of them. And after deliberation I decided you that I never said you couldn't. I thank you for your encouraging words and I hope others find strength through your writing. You told a story with the prompts but the great thing was it's your story. And I will copy his post to this thread. For everyone, thank you for participating. This was a great experience for me and I hope you enjoyed it as well. But please don't let it stop here. @Kaela MeliusMel shared a great drawing with me just last night. And I'm going to move the art to an open thread so that people can comment and collaborate. Thank you to everyone you guys are amazing and I can't wait to see what you do next. If you have questions or want my help with anything, let me know. I'm happy to help. I love you! P.S. please forgive me for any errors in this post or omissions. I've been writing this over the last 72 hours and on my phone as well. Joseph Bohan One of the Real Ones

    Now on a topic that Joe literally knows nothing about. It's Inktober!!!!!! Which I guess is just a series of prompts for art, but which since I can't draw, I consider stories and pictures and music (I mean why not) applicable. If you have to put pen to paper to come up with a work. Go for it. And because I want people to try and what not. Let's sweeten the deal. Every day for the month of October submit an entry, here, or in the written area, or the music topic. And at the end of the month I'll pick my favorites from each category; art, writing, and music. I'll get the winners a month of Silver membership here on the website, which includes free downloads of all StaticP and CDVNL songs to-date, early access to music, as streaming content before the music hits full release, access to an exclusive chat (maybe, it's listed as coming soon), and lots of other stuff. Also, bragging rights. so anyway, hop to it friends. I can't wait for the wonderful things you will create. Keep being awesome. Also, before I forget, here are the prompts. You can back date for the one on the First, but going forward try to have them done the day that is listed

    Sooo... I’ve never done a cover before. If it’s bad I apologize, I haven’t been very motivated recently so I was kind of really lazy with my voice, vocal technique, etc. Also, my voice is quite a bit dead so yeah. I also apologize for parts where it might be hard to hear my voice, you must realize this was all done on my phone because that’s all I had. Anyways, let me know what you think! My_Song_2.m4a

    So I can't draw well enough to hold a candle to some of these people. But that's because I'm a lyricist not a visual mediums artist, I guess. So day six drooling. I wrote half a song about it. Hope you like it. This is hard, writing about these random topics. The smell of dreams just beyond my reach It drives me crazy want to be Oh so many things I think just maybe wanna scream Because all my fears Hit almost daily But it's all so tantalizing And I know that's why I'm stay be Cause I'll change the world If I only get a shot I keep on looking at the future And I give it all I got Can't really tell you what it is But I can tell you what's it not I chase the rainbow for the colors I'm not looking for a pot I don't have much money or a hype boy I'm just the wacky black teen With the high voice It might be easier to fly boy Like why try but I just want to live a life that I can die for If it's not to your satisfaction That's too bad then I wish you found it more attractive This is my passion I remember back when I used to patronize People till I realized It's a waste of time that part of me's A has been I got a lot of people always tryna fool me While others say I'm Hoping on a fools dream I don't listen only focusing on two things Where I am right now and where I could be Drooling cuz I'm running for a dream I can taste it put a side Every unimportant thing I'm a make it Find myself often wondering What they'll say when I'm done with my cooking I'ma give you all a plate friends

    @slightlyaboveaveragejoe @Tef_Baanow @Princess_Yellow @HighlyCorrosive I'm wondering if you would like a chibi static with flowing hair, majestic sparkles, and a thumbs up for approval ... as a kind of combination of the three? I'm also wondering, though... I wish we could make more because i feel like if there's a chibi Static... there needs to be a chibi Jesse fro... since he kinda runs the show. @kirby157 actually, yes please. I'd love a chibi princess. Also... meow

    Dear Friends; This fairly similar to other post on being overwhelmed, but lets go from an optimistic/positive side. If you've ever tried to complete a puzzle, especially a very complex one. You have to realize one important thing, the objective is a long term goal. You don't start close to the goal and in fact everything you have is in pieces, and if you've ever tried to complete a puzzle without having the picture to go off of you realize just how hard it can feel to put together something with no plan. That's a lot like how life can go. You have a bunch of pieces and you aren't quite sure where they fit. You have skills, but you don't know where they go. You have talents but you don't see what they're for. The thing is those talents and skills are important they are a part of you and will make a great difference in both your life and the life of others. In the same way when you are making a puzzle you don't know where each individual piece fits by only looking at the piece and sometimes you have to try a few places before you find out where it actually fits. But you know what, that's the exciting part about life and puzzle making. Puzzling would be boring if you knew where everything fit right at the beginning. Now, to you negative folks who are thinking "That's all well and good but I don't have any pieces, any skills or talents." I say to you "lies and deceit good sir/madam." Perhaps, have forgotten some pieces back in the box, since you haven't pulled this puzzle out in a while. Or perhaps your pieces are upside down. In the same way there are skills that we don't know about, that we haven't found out yet. Or perhaps you need to be reminded of those skills. But they are indeed there. You just have to pull out the box and start working on something. You see puzzles that are already completed are called pictures. Its why you can look back on your life and see "the bigger picture." And I assure you that once you complete your picture you're going to find that you had a lot of talents, and they fit into all the right places, but it sure didn't see like it at the time. So friends, don't give up on that goal you're pursuing. Don't stop trying to be the best you there is. You are on your way and it is going to be something grand. Love, Joseph Bohan One of the Real Ones.

    Dear Friend, Yes you there looking at this screen. You are an incredibly strong person. You're strength is so great that many don't have the same strength as you. For currently, right now, at this very instant, you are alive! The pulse that you have and the breath in your lungs itself is a miraculous thing. It means you can do some much more than those who do not draw breath. If you think that you aren't strong, well you are wrong. Take for example the energy that you use. Studies have shown that just for existing, in any given day your body will burn roughly 1800 calories. Just for existing! That's more energy that it takes to run four 5km races. You do that. You do it everyday. So if you think that you can't do something, just remember you are already doing something much more strenuous just by existing. Whatever you have planned ahead is relatively simple. You are ready for it. You can take the world on and those friends of yours, they're pretty strong too. So take heart you slayer of dragons, you player of games, you musician, you office worker, you engineer, you artist, you student. YOU... are stronger than you think. You can do this. I believe in you. A Slightly Above Average Joe

    It had been a while since I listened to "A Message To Pop Culture" and I had forgot how awesome it was! It really does have a great message to it- especially nowadays, it's more prevalent than ever for people to think for themselves, and not be controlled or influenced by the world that tries to manipulate them. What a great message to put into a song! Keep up the good work, Joe!

    Hey All, figured I would just bring something up that I fight with. One of the things that I have struggled with for many years is this feeling of being alone. And frankly its not a good feeling. There's something about feeling like your are the only _______ that makes life less fun. Perhaps you're the only one who doesn't smoke in your friend group, or perhaps you don't have many/any friends. It makes life hard, and we weren't made to live this life alone. I going to bring in a Bible verse here, because why not? "Then the Lord God said, "It is not good that the man should be alone. I will make him a helper fit for him." Genesis 2:18. Frankly, I'm not here to give a sermon, but suffice to say that we weren't meant to be alone. The feeling of loneliness is not a pleasant feeling and it can be difficult at times, but its meant to feel that way. You aren't supposed to feel lonely you are supposed to go out and make friends, to spend life with other people. Whether or not those people are online or right in front of you is irrelevant. Just don't live it alone. It doesn't matter if someone's broken your trust. It doesn't matter if you aren't trustworthy. It doesn't even matter if you think that you are the only one where you are. I mean I currently live alone in the middle of a forest. Every one of my friends has gone out of state, or gotten married or, is just generally living life elsewhere. Therefore, I don't have a lot of friends where I live right now. There's people I know that live in town, but no one that I really talk to. So sometimes I feel like its just me. But you know what. I know that's not true. I mean after all, in the wise words of a Mr. Static-P "No one's in this alone. I wanna do my part. You can't see it, but they're fighting for you. Everyone of us is a weakling on our own. So I'm learning to trust, with you." I've done somethings that make it hard for me to trust people, which is another story for another day, but its one that will be told. But I'm so glad to have the people I have in my life. People that are fighting for me, even when I'm weak. And since everyone else is doing that for me. That's what I want to do for you folks. That is, the people of the BSS forum and beyond. I want to do my part. Cause no one is in this alone. I'm here if you want me to be. If you haven't already. Go check out the Don't Worry Wednesday Videos. Cause Static and the Betacat can words better than me. Until next time friends.

    Just a quick message before the speech. this is not my speech, this one is a speech that was made to be presented at my school's assembly. Each week one of the school leaders creates a speech on a certain topic and then presents it to the school. I know that listening to them made me feel a little bit better and changed the way i viewed things slightly so i thought that i would put them up here for others to read. i have gotten permission from the writers as well. I have also had to make a few changes so that the speeches will make a bit more sense as some of them do involve speaking to the audience, improvising a few things and taking the microphone out so that can walk through the audience. This first speech is about being Unique Walt Disney once said, ‘The more you are like yourself, the less you are like anyone else, which makes you unique’. Now, opening with a quote, that’s not very unique. It is all very well to preach individuality, but if one fails to stand apart from the crowd at a crucial moment, it defeats the entire purpose of the preaching. There is one simple change you can make to be that person whose resolve remains strong in the face of opposition, who does not hesitate to pinch the posterior of pressure. Take a breath. One singular breath. Go on, everyone, take a deep breath. In through the nose, and out through the mouth. All good? Good. Now you’re ready for the tip. Be proud of what makes you… you. We all have something unique, something special, to offer. What’s something that make you unique? Well, I’ve got some information for you. As of 2009, there are 127,346 people called Ben in the United States. Of that multitude of Bens, how many do you think are the exact same? What about the name Shaun? there are 66, 939 Shauns in the US alone. Yet, Mr Kirkby is still unique. Neamh is a bit sparser, having only about 1,400 compatriots in the US, but that’s still 1400 people you are entirely unique from. So, throughout this year, if someone challenges you to leave your uniqueness behind, don’t be afraid to let yourself be you. All of you have something special, and this year’s the year to have a look around and find it. And remember to never, ever be afraid to stand out from the crowd. Author P. Sullivan
