I have NOT disabled the right click feature on this blog and I do not intend to. I understand that it is an inconvenience for those that are legitimately right clicking. If it is disabled, it causes too much frustrations and sometimes anger.
For those of you who are NOT legitimately right clicking…
People ignore laws frequently. Somehow many people do not believe that restrictions apply to them. Somehow they are above the law and can take what photos/art/illustrations/words/stories they please. They think that because they use the images privately that it is somehow okay. It is NOT OKAY. I don’t care if your just sticking them on your blog, email, facebook, myspace or whatever else site and think you are causing no harm, even believing that you are somehow helping me. You are not helping me. You are Stealing. Yep, STEALING. I am not a dick. I am not an asshole. The people who steal words and images are. You can say your doin me a solid all you want, the fact of it is, your being a selfish prick.
I am hoping that by having my watermark on my images that you at least are aware of the fact that I DO NOT want you to take images without permission. It is very simple to email me and ask for use of an image. In most cases I will say yes. However, not in all cases. It cost you nothing by asking. The worst that can happen is that I say no. Not a big deal to be told no. If it is, you have some serious issues. Most artists out there feel this way. Most of the time we feel very honored to be asked for the use of our art. I have a number of times allowed my images to be used for free simply because a person was nice enough, respectful enough to just ask.
I normally register my work once a year. Its a huge pain in the ass to do so, but well worth it especially when things are stolen. If I come across works of mine that I have not registered yet, I immediately do so.
I have a tendency to come across as a bit aggressive at times when I don’t necessarily intend to.
The reason for that is I try to communicate with people openly and honestly. I do not try to hide my feelings or put up barriers.
I am enthusiastic, energetic, ambitious, and creative. I do love people and their life stories.
I am patient and accepting of others. I have a low tolerance for those who are not.
I am not judgmental. I don’t lie or “fluff” myself up. I do not necessarily care for people who do, but I do not judge them for that.
I am here to have a good time. I have met some great people on here that I have had as friends for many years and I love them as friends. Don’t misunderstand me. However, I know that we live in a world where ones own personal needs are set above everyone and everything else despite how “our” needs effect anyone else. Its amazing to me that we are able to function as a society, but then I stop and realize that we don’t function as a society. We are tooooo self involved, self centered, self absorbed and narcissistic (hell, more narcissistic than Nero ever THOUGHT about being) to give a fly’s worth of sh*t about anyone else… however I am a hopeless optimist, I take on Anne Franks view of the world… I try my best to believe that people honestly want to be good. I don’t think there is a person on my page reading this that views themselves as a bad person…. I put my trust in you and I believe that you are not bad or at least all BAD. I am willing to trust you. I will give you the benefit of the doubt that you won’t be an a$$-hole. Show me I’m right. and if not, don’t be thick or you’re liable to get licked! =)
