I'm looking for fractal submissions that resemble landscapes. Anything from mountains to forest to fields to beyond will be accepted. I want to see what your fractal world would look like! The rules for this contest are simple: 1 entry per person & New deviations only You can replace your entry at any time by sending me a note with the link/thumbnail to the new submission and the old submission.
This journal has a dual purpose.
FIRST Tiger-eyes2000 tagged me. I'm supposed to do some stuff, but meh! I'll just post the 8 things about myself:
1) I've got pretty bad astigmatism 2) Apparently I know how to spell "astigmatism" 3) When I was young I had the "worst case of chicken pox" my family doctor had ever seen. These chicken pox did not itch... they burned. It was terrible. I didn't even scratch them but I still have scars all over the place. Including the "Big Dipper" (Ursa Major... or whatever else you may know it by) on my chest and a circular dent in my forhead. 4) While I'm on the topic of scars: I have stretch marks all over my back because I grew so quickly. I remember getting up in the morning and feeling like I was limping all day long 'cause one leg felt longer than the other. Luckily the other leg always seemed to catch up over the course of the next night. 5) I was part of the I.B. program in high school. Are there any other IB survivors out there? 6) I've been dating my girlfriend, Abbie, for a little over 2 years now... 'girlfriend' doesn't seem to do the relationship justice anymore. Unfortunately, we like torturing ourselves and about half of the time has been spent separated in different countries. (First she left for a school year in Herstmonceux, England, then I came here to Colorado for a school year... now she'll be spending next fall's semester in Shanghai) 7) One of my favourite past-times is simply thinking. I could go somewhere quiet, esp. out in nature, and sit, think, pray, and listen to music for hours. 8) I absolutely love exploring creeks, brooks, etc. wading through reeds or mud or knee deep water just to see what's around the next bend. I've found some of the best locations to do #7 this way.
Now I'm supposed to tag 8 other people so here goes...
you, you, you, you, you, you, you, and you! (I know... cop-out)
I've decided to select the winners for the 'Space Alien' contest. They're posted below. I'll award the winner, =Glimphor, the 3 month sub once I get home in May. Boy it was tough narrowing it down! Once I got it down to 20 different entries I realized I needed to focus on pieces that fulfilled the theme of the contest and, well, 45 minutes later the winners were selected!
A real conversation I had the unfortunate occasion of being a part of...
Mike: Did you here that France is trying to buy the Rock of Gibraltar from Spain?!
Me: Uhhh.... no.... *confusion*
Mike: Yeah! And the French want to name it after one of their most famous leaders!
Me: Really? (I wasn't buying it...)
Mike: They're going to call it "De Gaulle Stone"!!
Paul: (jumps in) I bet that'll be hard to pass!!
Me: *hand -> forehead *

The International Baccalaureate Program. Basically it is advanced compared to normal high school (in Canada you can get 1st year university credits for doing well in certain classes) and it is standardized across the globe (every IB student writes the same exams on the same days).
