Hello! My name is Jody and I’m sick of seeing people post stupid shit that other people made.
Not on here — on Facebook. The latest plague seems to be quote images. Not text quotes, images with nothing but words in them. UGH! Consume consume!
I’m not exactly sure why I’m so threatened by it all — I mean, as a creator, noticing that 99% of people don’t make their own stuff should give me comfort.
But anyway. Here’s some stupid, pointless, mediocre shit I made — BUT I MADE IT!
Please post something YOU made!

I’m a writer and I wrote a novel. It is a “monetized commodity” so I won’t link it here. But I want to play in this thread, so here’s the first page…
All that you are, all that you have ever been, the King’s X will reveal…
A lifetime is an arc of lightning. Potent. Unique. Impermanent. What happens when we die? Is it nothing? Is it something?
So much is hidden. So much forgotten. What knowledge remains falls to us in ancient stories of a time lost in shadow. Stories of jealous gods and tormented thieves. Prometheus and the stolen secret of fire. Eve, the Tree of Knowledge, and the taste of forbidden fruit. The clever Raven, who tricked the Sky to steal a piece of the Sun.
Long ago the King’s X was stolen from its makers. The Thief is hunted to this day. There can be no rest, not even in death. Because to carry the King’s X is to know a truth long hidden, forever outlawed, and all but forgotten.
No one dies.
What follows is a story of secrets, forbidden knowledge, and stolen fire. This is a story of the King’s X. One of many.
@misssunbeam, You totally live in Vancouver! I live there myself ;)
Here’s a poem I just wrote:
Within a Dream…
You emerge from the chaotic symmetry
Aware it’s a dream within a dream within a reality of perpetual motion
A painting of a highway like an endless ocean
Stretching up and over the horizon
Forever lost and forever found
This highway Circles around
You’ve discovered a paradox breathing life into your soul
You’ve discovered time in all it’s whole
Dancing to this song in search of divinity
The Devil pulls strings for all of infinity
Dancing to this song with nothing to lose
The Devil is you, and God is too
Also check out my short film, I’m entering it in a robot film festival so I want to get those views up :)
@spiralout1, I did live in Vancouver at the time, but have since migrated to a bunch of different places and ended up in Whistler now :) I watched your short film for the second time, you did an awesome job with it, congrats! And you also have a knack with poetry!
Hi, this is a project i did in my music theory class my junior year, i had to compose a piece of music and play it, i was graded on how well the performance went. i really thought this song wasnt going to be that good, but now i really enjoy it looking back.
I draw from time to time!
