Expression of Interest by Iomma Expression of Interest by Iomma
No, I'm not singing "I've got the whole world in my hands".

I've got a ton of interests. Too many to list.

MLP:FiM [poni moi on the left], Homestuck [the spirograph], Minecraft [the pixelated crap in the background], and not because they're 'popular'. I'm an introvert, the only opinions I care about are from surveys on a data collection spree. I like them because I f*cking like them. Not actually portrayed is my love interest with table-top gaming, but that could be related to the mini planet in my hands [world building and the like]. The crappy sketchy square thing with wings being built from the pixels is an Artist's Block. Anyone who's seen my actual artist's block drawings should recognize it.

I'm an observer, I'd like to say I make things happen, but mostly I watch...not to be creepy or anything. I know that knowledge can save humanity, and find ignorance the enemy of its progress.

The phrase "Ars Longa, Vita Brevis" is Latin for "Art is long, life is short", which to me, is the truest statement I can say about myself. Art is the best way to express yourself. It can be music, dance, song, poetry, paintings, literature, anything!

Yes, I wear a 7.62mm round as an earring.

There's a lot about me very few people know, two things about me only three people know, and a single thing I've never shared with anyone. Never even spoken it aloud. I will refuse anyone who asks, so don't. The two things I don't really enjoy talking about.

Everything here I did in GIMP. Drew myself with my tablet [<3], and Poni Moi with my mouse using the path tool [as proper with my poni work]. Even the planet I hand tooled into shape with filters.

Interesting work and interesting description. Somehow I'm envious of "never even spoken it aloud". I have difficulty thinking so when I go on walks to think, I have to talk to myself and EVERYTHING is up for grabs. As far as I'm concerned, someone could've followed me and heard my most secret thoughts straight from my own mouth. I'm happy enough with who I am, but I do sometimes wish I had the self control to think about something without having to say it aloud.

Also, if you only care about the opinions of statistical reports, why did you find it necessary to explain to us that you like what you like independently the communities that go come with what you like or from public views? I do my best to be completely honest with myself (harder than it may sound, at least for me), and it's taken a good ten years of thinking to admit that, while I wish I didn't give a rat's ass about what people think about me, I do. It's more important to be honest with myself than to say who I wish I was based on my values. I value independence, but I just don't have it.

Just things to think about :) Nice piece.

Mass data gives me a broader idea on a more wider spectrum. I'm unlikely to take one person's opinion, and instead try to experience it for myself to form my own. I'm unlikely to take a single person's opinions on particular matters unless I'm involved, or they're one of the few I know I can take a hint from. Being introverted, there's only about less than .05% of the population that I will actually listen to their opinion openly and willingly, 5% of the population who's opinion kind of matters, 10% of the population I can trust to be somewhat accurate, and all but the lower 41% of the adult population is nothing more than 'mass', so each one counts less.

That bottom 41% of the population? I can't take a single thing they say seriously, and tend to ignore them outright. Who are they? They're the percentage of adult American's who believe that Humans and Dinosaurs co-existed.

Some things can't be experienced freely, course, I'm an ethical person, if not a religious one. So murder, death, rape, abortion, and the like I haven't experienced, yet I have very strong opinions on such matters due to what I've seen it do to other people [I support abortion, death is somewhat unavoidable, and murder and rape are despicable].

I'd love independence, but stupidity is a disease, and if those people wish to live, then they better start shaping up. Mental handicapped aside of course, I support them with all my heart. They have an excuse, and still a lot of them are more brilliant than the not-handicapped-in-any-way-but-still-utterly-stupid.

I also despise the public education system with a passion.

I like people sharing their opinions, I do. Forcing them upon me is another thing, rejecting mine is another, and telling me what I should think or do is wrong. I'm an existentialist, you want me to listen to your opinion? Then don't get angry when I share mine. If I like your opinion, I'll experience it for myself. Watching ponies has made me a better person overall, I'd like to think, but I'm recovering from some really dark stuff, so my ability to work with other people is improving daily.

...I have a lot of assholes in my life. On the internet, things are a little different.

I love debates! Love, love, love them. Not one sided debates, or pointless ones, but real debates. It's a test of knowledge, and there are things to be learned!

Course, your opinions[/critique] is something I look forward too, as with similar information. Mostly, because I'm an artist, and what's an artist if their art is never viewed? What's progression if no one tells me where I went wrong?

And the sheer fact I even said that there's one thing about me that nobody knows is the most I've said of that. And this now, if that also counts.

Knowledge that I have a secret isn't secret! :O

Is there some way we could share ideas without filling up the comments section of one of your works?

........ The picture is wonderful!
......... Well, if your secrets are embarrassing, then haha!
If they are sad, then you have my empathy.
And if they are neither, then you have whatever corresponding emotion matches them the best!

There! I'm done.

My secrets are not embarrassing, but a few of them are shameful, and several are best NOT shared with others, mostly for their sake. I always feel that expressing my opinion is necessary, on all stances, and expect of everyone to do the same. But I know where the limits are, and do my best to be pleasant to everyone [except ignorant bigots].

I'm a Heretic of the Church, by the every definition of the word. I'm against EVERYTHING from the Abrahamic religions. I have suffered for it, in more ways than one, but I shall stand for what I believe is right. Even still, I do my best to try and not spout condescending opinions or ideas without providing proof. I also demand proof, and will accept it if it stands true. I also expect this of everyone: Question everything, and learn the reasons before you begin to hate. The nonsense of people is overwhelming sometimes.

My secrets however, I have little emotion towards, except for one.

.....Huh. Didn't see that coming.
Well, I question things if I have a good reason to or I am insatiably curious, but I prefer to try to be polite, even while i'm on the internet (Save for a bad mood or an off moment) since I don't like the idea of upsetting people. As for my religious beliefs, I am a Christian, but I am not a part of any official denomination and I don't try to be preachy unless I think it will work or if I am on the internet and I have a lapse of judgement. I believe that the Bible is true for the most part, but I wouldn't be surprised if the people who wrote it on behalf of God/the religion made a mistake or two. People do make mistakes. Also, I don't believe that science disproves God, only that God decided that the Universe could use a bit more order than a whimsical 'He says it and thus it was so.'
And that's some things about me in a nutshell. Now to wait and hope this doesn't bite me on a later date.......

It's all cool, so long as you're not hating me for being gay, wearing mixed fabrics, or touching pork. I don't 'hate' religion, per say, just the exceptional zealous bigots, with which, most Christians also agree [or, some]. Its fine you worship, it really is, just leave other people alone while you do it. If you don't like someone, don't try to shove your religion down their throat. It's impolite. So is waving it around in the air like a dick waving contest. It's just plain rude.

I'm an Atheist, I'm polite if other people are polite, but I've had very literal stones thrown at me, my pay cut, a job or two lost, endlessly bullied, and to every atrocity people have thrown at me, I've stood my ground.

If I am to go and burn in Hell for not worshiping, then so be it. I'll accept that as my 'punishment' at that point. Until then, it's what I do here and now that makes the most difference, and after I die, I could care less where I go. I want my world a better place for other people to live without the need for fear, and if I can contribute to that, I'm happy.

I was religious for two years, mostly as a social experiment, then went back to science because it offered more comfort and answers. Faith isn't solving hate and violence, and science is for the good of everyone.

I even feel that weapon development is a necessary evil. Not for war, but sport.

Well, I said I wasn't preachy unless I thought that would actually work. And as for what had happened to you, anyone who calls themselves a Christian and does that to people is a liar and ought to be..... well, I don't know, but I don't believe that such reasonlessly hateful people aren't truly Christian. I would say more, but I would rather hold my tongue than annoy you with more of my opinions or arguments. I honestly am not comfortable discussing religion usually, in all irony.

So........... I heard you liek mudkips?
