Thank you to all of those who sent in covers. We will be posting the entries and asking the community to vote on the top 10 to be posted on GDA. Cheers.

    The same crimson door welcomes me with open arms.

    The same pale-yellow paint covers the walls.

    The same smell of over-cooked bacon seeps through the halls.


    The same eclectic chaos of clutter covers our kitchen’s counter tops. 

    The same sound of my mother telling my brother to please pick up his socks rings 

    through my ears and I hear the same click when the front door is closed and locked. 


    The same sky-blue house sits at the top of the same rolling green hill. 


    These sights, these senses, they’re all the same to me still.


    This place has all the important elements of a home. 

    It’s got nostalgia and memories and a family to remind you that you’re never really on your own.


    So why—when I stand in this spot that I’ve stood so many times before— 

    do I feel so impossibly alone?


    I’m in my house, but I fear I’ve lost my home. 

    Somewhere in the process of finding myself, 

    there were some things that I forgot to bring along. 


    That home, as I know it, is gone.

    Now, the closest comfort I can find is in the familiar melody of a song,

    or in the distant memory of your voice, reminding me that I’m strong. 

    My home, now, are those memories and the road I’m traveling on. 

    There’s no turning back, the path I left is gone. 

  4. I want to thank everyone who has read my poetry and lyrics. I write for myself, but being able to share it means a lot to me. So I want to share the full collection of my self-published writing. Most of it, you guys have already seen. But it is organized into two nice little word docs which you can share anywhere you want (something I definitely appreciate!)

    Now, I hate to sound like I'm e-begging, but I am an unrecognized writer with a low paying day job about to get married and move to another country. So if anyone appreciates my writing and wants to make a contribution, I have a PayPal set up. If you don't want to or can't contribute, sharing this with your friends would also be cool! :)

  5. New lyrics. Enjoy.


    Imitation Game


    Running wild under the sea

    of static and vile disbelief

    Holding onto the end's dull rope

    Days of freedom or days to elope



    Speak up, speak out

    Run north, then south

    Oh, you'll be...



    Parties of self reflection

    imitation and condition


    No rules and confusion

    and days gone by with retribution

    File a noose now, friend

    It's not you meeting your end




    Boards and dice with

    memories pulled twice

    Echoes in frame going

    through small-time fame

    Cut through history with

    a fatal bell's toll

    Embrace your demons

    and your facade's roll




    Asphyxiation, complication

    elevation, confrontation






  6. For anyone who's been waiting on part 2 of my research on socialism leading to communism - I apologize that it's taking a while. I've been swamped with looking into other important subjects, such as confirming on how the monetary system is loony business, reading up about the Montessori way of education, etc. I have these 2 PDF files I'll want to look at, one that I'm absolutely sure is about the use of RFID microchip implants on kids (ICK!), and one that is about Whole Child Education - something I need to get a better understanding of. My friend Anita Hoge had suggested that I read up about Maslow, and I just got started doing that.  

    As soon as I'm done going through those 2 PDF files, I shall look into Karl Marx, and Engels. ...I REALLY want to start on putting together the pictorial video towards the fifth podcast my dad and I did some weeks back, and put that on my YouTube channel. *sigh* I'll start getting pics together next week. To hear all 5 podcasts ahead of time, before I start sharing them on this blog, you may listen them on NewGrounds: http://silverfoxjams.newgrounds.com/audio/ The first one is titled "Hello Interwebs...", and that is quite a mind boggling webisode. This conversation between my dad and I, it's quite a debut! Anything that has "Discussion Podcast" to the right are the parts of the series.

    Another way of educating oneself is through listening to certain songs through the ages that describe the various real world problems that just never cease. It's another way to show that throughout history, certain tragedies and crimes keep repeating over and over again. To quote from a lyric from a Puddle of Mudd song; "Same old shit, different day." 

    I'll pick some from my YouTube Playlist custom soundtrack to share with you all, "The Awesome Anti-NWO Soundtrack/Ultimate Soundtrack for Humanity". As I type, 249 songs in all are on it! I'm sure there's more than that out there, lol. I've found songs that are really old ones, such as those by Robert Johnson, Fela Kuti, and Billie Holiday. There's more by older musicians, and a handful that are more recent; The Offspring, Linkin Park, Staind, Michael Jackson, Muse... (Of course I put songs by Green Day on there, too. I've got about 5 or 6 songs by them on there so far!)

    Here are the 5 I'll share at random. Enjoy!

    1. Muse - "Uprising" (This band for one is AMAZING! The front man vocalist, Matt Bellamy, he's got a helluva range! Example, have you heard how him sing on their song "Supremacy"?!? Everyone in this band is so good at what they do. ...Anyways, this is a great song that calls for revolution, to resist against the tyrants who want to dumb the masses down.)

    2. Rage Against the Machine - "No Shelter" (This is one of my favorites by this band. This song tells the truth about the kind of propaganda that's been put out there to keep the many distracted and unaware of the reality outside the American Dream. The video to go along with the song to me is powerful! Warning: there's some intense imagery in this!!)

    3. The Clash - "Clampdown" (This one is a classic, describing how people have been conditioned on how to live. The lyrics are in the description box if you check this one out on the YouTube website.)

    4. The Who - "Won't Get Fooled Again" (This would be another classic song! My parents and I like The Who a lot...)

    5. Lauryn Hill - "I Get Out" (She used to be in the 90's group The Fugees! [Do you remember their cover of the songs "Killing Me Softly", and Bob Marley's "No Woman No Cry"?] This song is about her rebelling against the filthy bastards in the music industry. This is also her message toward the masses, to wake up and realize the reality that is the Tyrant System.)

    Haha, okay I lied about picking 5 songs. Why not choose a BONUS one?! Here you go, guys and gals; one of Green Day's songs I put onto this playlist. ;) This is one of my most favorite songs, from their Warning Album.


  7. 'Cause I'm losing what's left of my dignity
    A small price I'll pay to see that you're happy
    Forget all the disappointments you have faced
    Open up your worried world and let me in

    ( green day - one for the razorbacks)


    hello all GDC'ers,..;)


    All my drawing series this time it’s about love,….it's about girl..i call it green day girl who stole my heart...ha..ha..ha....

    In GDC I read thread about what green day song that related to you most,….i felt that right now all green day song that talk about love is related to me, especially from their 1st album until dookie,…when I made this drawing mostly I hear one for the razorbacks. I felt it’s suitable to explain about my feeling right now.

    may be it’s becouse valentine’s day. Every body seems talk about it….it’s love very where….

    in indonesia which the majority is moslem, the celebration of valentines day is forbiden..they said it's celebration of free sex,..but i dont believe it...

    So my drawing it’s about it..love love and love....:wub:

    this time i post 7 drawing and I’m using simple media to draw….crayon,oil pastel and colour pencil on paper size a3.

    Thank you for visiting my blog….



    Well, look this direction,
    I know it's not perfection,
    It's just me...



    Is she ultra-violent?..Is she disturbed?..I better tell her that I love her
    Before she does it all over again...Oh god, she's killing me!!!



    Oh I love her..Keep dreaming of her...Will I understand If she wants to be my friend...



    oh my green day girl...



    I'm all busted up Broken bones and nasty cuts...Accidents will happen but this time I can't get up.......
    She comes to check on me Making sure I'm on my knees....After all she's the one Who put me in this state...



    this rage and love...only with you i want to share...



    After all she's the one Who put me in this state....



  8. Life does not stall –
    in medias res we fall
    like gladiators thrust into the ring
    with armor of cardboard
    but confidence of a king.

    Our story begins with vigor and fury;
    a wailing, urgent protest against 
    being ousted from where all souls rest.
    Ripped from nirvana 
    and reincarnated with terrible force;
    all tabula rasa once more 
    but with a sense of divorce,
    of suddenly being in a setting
    less pleasant than before.

    Adventure begins instantly;
    our quest to be the best selves we can be,
    to wield swords and challenge beasts,
    to come through heartbreak and defeat
    with friends by our side and 
    daggers between our teeth.

    If we were able to live each day
    concerned with growth and beauty
    a life would be spent well – as
    a soul fulfilling duty.
    And as gladiators in victory or defeat
    we’d spend our lives in happiness complete -
    through cycles of light and dark
    we’d only care about fueling our character arc.

    Why cant i show whats in me?

    i feel pointing fingers.

    no thats not me!

    i want them to see!

    but who can see through concrete?

    All the while, the devil that can see,

    whispers and mutters that it knows me.

    there is one way to make yourself inside out...

    i try to write down the flow of colors

    but i hesitate, knowing that the swords

    that are my words will bring pain.

    bang bang two shots are one page.

    slice slice two limbs are gone but its complete.

    those parts of me will not again be seen...

    were the costs worth it?

    who would take that tainted meat?

    only the devil gobbles it up.

    and it is my home, the only one i will ever know.

    i throw up the colors that did not

    make it onto the pages,

    staining my skin.

    Last year everyone on the GDC was so supportive with our award winning student film Saving Sadie! I wanted to take this opportunity to show our gory ass short film that disturbed a lot of people! 


  11. This is a really random story but it kind of freaks me out how weird it is, so here goes. So, to start this off, I'm just going to say, I write fanfiction. I have for three years, but it's not that smut shit because I figure I can write something kinda worth while and it doesn't have have all that crap in it. Anyways, I wrote a BVB fanfiction on the afterlife and suicide (All for the sake of experiment and reaching out to people) and all of that and have been posting it to this creative writing website. In my last update, I mentioned in my notes that I live in Wyoming, and one of my commentors said they did, too. Not a big deal, really. So I asked them, which part? The SAME TOWN AS ME. They're friends with some of my 4-H friends :lol: Best part is, they're just as weird as me and not into country music like everyone else in this forsaken town!!! But I'm having an issue... 

    ughhh I want to make friends with them, because this is a rare occurance. Sure, I have friends, but I don't have much in common with them. This is my chance! haha... But the problem I'm having, is if I tell them who I am, they may have heard of me before, because my town is tiny... and what if it spreads around and then that follows me for the rest of my highschool days... "Taryn writes fanfiction!" 

    1. I don't do it because I'm obsessed, it's because it's like working with a premade character in a story. You already know what they look like and all their quirks, so they're easier to work with and they have a pre-existing background. 2. I NEVER wanted my writing to ever intervene with my actual social life because people can and will, make fun of you for anything, and this is about as good as announcing you warship Satan or something. I'm not popular enough for it to spread like wildfire, but I know enough people to make it travel, which is a problem. 

    So what in the actual hell am I supposed to do with this?! On one hand, I want to make friends with her because she seems like a really cool person, but I don't know if she'd keep how we met a secret. On the other hand... I really don't want this to follow me forever if it slips from my grip, and the people who actually know me, happen to go and read this story, and associate me with my work, writing about suicide and all that crap. I could never talk myself out of a mess like that. So I'm asking for legitimate advice on how you would handle it, because truth be told, every single one of you has fangirled about something, even if it wasn't as low on the fandom chart as writing fanfics. What would you do? Thanks...

    I’ve been watching her eyes roll,

    Not in irony though:

    “It’s only half four, what you leaving for?”


    The sun’s come up and she hasn’t come down.

    That was the last time I caught her knocking around

    With that boy who wasn’t good for her;

    It weren’t his fault they just weren’t a fit

    ‘Cause she was too preoccupied cutting her wrists –

    She had too much gear and he wasn’t equipped.


    Waking up at the wrong end of the day,

    She’s pretty so she gets her way.

    But she’s sad, she has a second taste of the food she’s had

    Still she says it’ll be better one day.


  13. OK, hopefully that got some people's attention. I need some help. Auditions were just announced for a local production of American Idiot that I will be auditioning for. I'm wondering if anybody has, or if anybody is able to get/produce/create a high quality, instrumental only version of Brutal Love. Everything that I found on YouTube still has audible portions of the original vocals. Feel free to reply in the comments or send me a message if you are able to help. Thanks everyone :)

    Paper Hearts
    By Todd Pritchard

    “Sara, do you want to drive?” asked Sara’s mother as they walked out to the car. “Not really” Sara answered, bluntly. “You’re going to need practice if you ever want  to get your license” her mom said. Sara sighed loudly and said “Maybe another time, mom” as she sat down in the passenger seat. “Well be sure to pay attention to what I’m doing so you can learn” her mother said. “The first thing I always do is I check my mirror.” Acknowledging her mother, Sara looked up from her phone, then focused on the heart-shaped ornament hanging from the mirror. “Mom, why do you keep that there?” Sara asked, pointing at the glittery red paper. Sara’s mom smiled and answered “You made that for me when you were little. It reminds me everyday how much I love you”. Sara sneered and said “I don’t like it, I think it’s ugly”. Hurt by her teenager’s harsh words, her mom replied “Well when you get your own car, then you won’t have to look at it”. But Sara wasn’t listening, she was too busy looking at her phone. Fighting back tears, Sara’s mom pulled out of the parking lot. She found it hard to accept that her little girl was growing up. She looked up at the ornament dangling from the mirror, which read “To Mommy, Love Sara”. Then everything went black.

    When Sara came to, she did not know where she was. She opened her eyes and looked around. There was a TV on the wall across from her, a window at her side, a chair in front of the window, and she noticed she was laying in a bed. Suddenly, a man’s voice said “Sara, are you awake?”. Sara tried to look over to her left, where the voice was coming from, but her neck hurt too much. “Hello?” she asked, nervously. There was no answer. Then Sara heard the sound of footsteps and an older lady came into view. “I’m gonna take your blood pressure, hon” said the lady as she came around the bed to Sara’s arm. “Wha- what happened?” Sara asked, realizing she was in a hospital. Hearing his queue, the man in the room walked over into Sara’s view. “Sara, you were in a pretty bad car accident. Luckily, you only have a few bruises” said the man in a stern voice. “Is everyone else alright? What about my mom?” Sara asked, worriedly. The man looked Sara in the eyes and began to tear up. “Your mother was killed in the crash” was all he was able to say before the tears started rolling down his cheeks. Overcome by shock and grief, Sara wept over her sudden loss. The man, still crying, knelt down next to Sara and took her hand. Together they cried.  

    Sara had lost track of time by the time she ran out of tears. When she went to wipe her eyes dry, she realized she was still holding the hand of the man comforting her. “Who are you?” she asked as she dried her cheeks. “I was a first responder at the crash. I pulled you and your mother from the car” he said mournfully. Before Sara could respond, the man reached into his pocket and pulled out a small piece of red paper. “I found this in your lap when I pulled you out. I thought you might want to have it”. Sara sat up and took the ornament. Overwhelmed with emotion, Sara hugged the man. “Thank you” she whispered in his ear.

    Three months had gone by, and Sara had not given up on learning to drive. Deeply affected by the loss of her mother, she had bought her own car and was determined to get her license. Finally, the big day had come, and Sara went to the DMV for her driving test. Along for support came Sara’s new friend, the first responder who had stayed at her side since the accident. “Good luck” he told her encouragingly, getting out of the car to let the instructor in. As the instructor sat down in the passenger seat, Sara made her final preparations. As she clicked her seatbelt in, the instructor asked her “Are you ready?”. Sara gasped. “One more thing!” she exclaimed, reaching into her pocket. In one swift motion, Sara hung the red heart ornament from the mirror, then adjusted it. “There!” she said, proudly. “Do you think you’re going to pass?” Inquired the instructor. Sara looked up at the mirror one last time. For just a second, she saw her mother’s smiling face looking back at her. With confidence, Sara answered “I know I will”.

  15. I just formed a band called 18 Cent Loan, we will play pop punk, similar to early Green Day. We don't have a bassist, and the drummer is bad at his job, but I can temporarily turn up bass on my amp, so... Success? Don't expect any live shows, even if you live where we do, cause we aren't doing them yet.

  16. I wandered through the scorching desert, wondering where the hell I was going. I had been with a small group of people. Our goal was to get across the desert with what we had in our packs, but one by one they died off. The heat had been too much for them. It was picking out the weak. The heat was a strong thing, feeding on the weak. It consumes you, leaving your corpse to the creatures. I had somehow survived, living off of the little water I had left. I knew I was going to die, but the question was when?  At night there was nowhere to go except run from the beasts. I slept during the day with clothes lain over me so my body wouldn't burn. I trekked through the hot sand. Even during the middle of the night, the sand scorched my feet. A low growl erupted from behind me and my body froze. I turned slightly, only seeing part of the black creature and took off running. There was no way I was going to be able to outrun the the beast this time. It  had sneaked up on me this time. Usually I'm careful enough to listen, not this time. I ran, my bloody feet pounding into the hot sand. I could hear the creature gaining on me and I knew it was over. It plunged its claws deep into my back and I screamed, falling face-first into the sand as the creature dragged me back.

    Happy 2nd birthday to my loveable bunny, Jack! Although you can't read this or understand the concept of a birthday, I hope I was able to give you the greatest birthday party any rabbit has ever had! In the year and a half I've had you in my life, I have been blessed with your quirks, adorableness, and unconditional love. You made my lifelong dream of having a bunny come true the day you literally hopped into my life! I am the luckiest girl in the world to have you. I have found so much pureness and innocence in you. You have taught me to be more quiet and find love in the simple things in life. The way you play with "toys" that are the wrappers for the actual toys I buy you, and the way you stomp your foot until someone in the house stops yelling is something I've always observed and appreciated. I also love how you are so spoiled, because it has taught me to be a little bit selfish. ;) Self love isn't always a bad thing! You mean so much to me and I promise I will never give up on you and I will always love you. I will always give you the best care I can until the day I die. You mean so much to me and I will make sure your future compensates for the horrible first six months of life you lived. 

    I hope you enjoyed your 6 BIG birthday salads! <3 I love you so much. 


    First day I found you!

    Cutie <3

    Hey guys! So I have been on a long hiatus of GDA and GDC. Last time you saw me my display name was Radio Victim so just in case anyone is confused who I am. Yeah last time I was on here was probably my senior year of high school which was back in 2014 and probably just the beginning of that year. I just wanted to make a blog of things I've been up to lately and thoughts I'd like to get out and use this as a journal device.

    So I've graduated high school since being on here and I'm now in my second year of college. I go to Indiana State University and I'm studying business which is more or less challenging. But things are good here, I find college way less stressful than high school which was a nightmare for me. I broke up with my girlfriend I had senior year after only two months of college, I felt like I was being tied down to live a life of missed opportunities if I stayed with her. We're on pretty good terms now though so there isn't any ill will to either one anymore. I've befriended a few buddies at college who are pretty good musicians and have two bands that I'm working with while at college. One of them is Runaway Chuck which is comprised of all my buddies I've met at ISU with me on bass. That's pretty fun, we play indie/pop style music but we want to expand our sound as much as possible but not too much that it's hard for listeners to latch on if we're one genre for one song and a completely different one for another song. My other band, For Your Health, is the one I'm really excited about. I play guitar and sing, my brother is on bass and sings as well and my high school bud, Jake, is on drums, he also goes to ISU. We're more of a general punk band, I kind of want to have a sound with influence from all sorts of bands from the likes of The Story So Far, Knuckle Puck and With The Punches to Gates and Turnover and even some skate punk stuff like MxPx and Propagandhi (as well as newer Propagandhi). I have lots of hope for this band, I've gone to some local independent house shows and shows at clubs and what not and it is an absolute blast to be there. I want to do that and be involved in that scene, I've really been amazed at how many people in Indiana have that same energy and love for music like I do and all I want to do is play, tour, travel, record, rinse repeat. It might get draining but for now it's all I can think about. 

    I've also had a big lifestyle change which is adopting veganism. I just started around August 2015 and honestly, it's one of the best decisions I've ever made. I feel so much better about myself health wise. I was pretty heavily influenced by listening to Propagandhi and actually doing some research on it and I really had my world flipped from that. I don't really have much to say on it but I take pride in it and I love to tell people that about me.

    I really haven't done a whole lot to be honest. Things have definitely changed both good and bad but that's life. I probably won't be on here very often still but I just was thinking on it and I am really grateful to the people on GDC because there was always something to keep me afloat in life and people on here helped me in many ways and I couldn't thank you guys enough. Catch you guys later!

    To the people reading this, hello! 

    I just realized that I posted something without even describing my blog or talking about what I intend to post on here. I guess I got too excited after reading lizziebix's suggestion to create one!

    I have been writing stuff for a long time now and I post it here and there but most of it is what you can call "organized chaos." I'm just trying to get back to writing and in the meantime I want to share the things that I have written in the past and this seems like a good place to do that. 

    Before I post anything new, I'd like to say that I'm just an amateur so I really appreciate criticism. Comments are always welcome.


  21. Things I Write

    I know a guy
    He's filled with hopes and dreams
    That he hasn't got a clue how to fulfil

    He's got these big ideas
    Of leather jackets, shouts and screams
    In dingy clubs and angry pubs across the land

    What he doesn't realise
    Is that unless he really tries
    To set the scene up for himself
    He'll just keep making alibis

    Late at night up in his room
    He writes the words of pain and strife
    And he hears them ringing out over a crowd

    He sits with his guitar
    And works his fingers 'til he bleeds
    And in his head he's standing up upon a stage

    What he doesn't realise
    Is that unless he really tries
    To set the scene up for himself
    He'll just keep making alibis

    Dissatisfied with music
    Playing on the radio
    He's not content with what the modern world's become

    His mind's stuck in the past
    A time when passion ruled one's heart
    He romanticises life he never knew

    What he doesn't realise
    Is that unless he really tries
    To set the scene up for himself
    He'll just keep making alibis

    The opportunity is there
    It's clear in broad daylight
    I don't understand just what he's waiting for

    What he doesn't realise
    Is that unless he really tries
    To set the scene up for himself
    He'll just keep making alibis

  22. Sweet melody of my heart
    I pray for you to be my guide
    In this world so hurt
    I only know you’re mine.

    ‘Cause I need comfort in these days,
    'Cause they are so hard to face.
    And I want you to be close,
    I want your warm hug to protect me from this world.

    Keep calm and carry on
    But what if I want to be gone?
    Hidden desires in this heart of mine,
    But then I see you shine.

    Sweet melody of my heart,
    What are you trying to say?
    It’s more like you, with your art,
    Are trying to make me stay.

    But it’s strong the desire to go away,
    But why do you wish me to stay?
    Who are you to say me that?
    Are you a part of myself?

    Oh sweet melody,
    It looks like you’re a part of me,
    That part which wants me to live
    And that doesn’t want me to bleed.

    Should I listen to you?
    And now your melody sounds like rain.
    What should I do?
    You’re begging so much and I’m in pain.

    Oh sweet melody of my heart
    I can hear our heartbeat full of life
    I guess I will stay for a while
    Once again till I’m going to fall apart.

  23. Both of these poems are about some intensely personal happenings in my life.
    Staying Strong
    Do you know the suffering, the pain?
    All these negative feelings that remain
    I push and fight for a little bit of light, out goes the flame
    Rejected in my own mind without a frame of reference to be seen
    Obtain this key, I remove it and refrain
    Running far away from all the mind games
    Because I was frozen in a moment, vulnerable and silent
    No expression of my horror to be seen across my face
    Living in a moment that leaves you broken, weak, and afraid
    Corruption of the innocence, division of the brain
    And so I break these thoughts down, over and over and over and over
    Can't make sense of why it happened, I feel distant and alone
    All hopes that I abandoned I buried deep beneath the snow
    But spring is inevitable, what once I'd buried reemerges, so it goes
    I am stronger than you were, I am strong and beautiful
    Little Walking Tragedy
    Beautiful and sweet
    Little walking tragedy
    Breakdown in defeat
    Obscure the outcomes agony
    Frail the bones are weak
    Hold it all together
    Stable and steady
    Through this nasty weather
    Suffering you bleed
    Hurting is the treasure
    Little walking tragedy
    Can you hold it all together?
