     As all of you wonderful people know, it finals are coming meaning I will have final papers to turn in. HAHA One of which is 40 pages long, but that will probably be one of my easier ones believe it or not because I have a template to work off of. This semester has gone smooth and as Thanksgiving break dwells near I will be talking to and about Deviants I find to be interesting. I am doing this for my research and I genuinely find everyone interesting, but I can only write on a few people.

    I guess since this is for my Anthropology class I should start with some of the fandoms on here and how they have evolved into some sort of a sub-culture. As you know I have been active in many fandoms, however the type of people the fandom attracts tends to disappoint me. For a long time I have been apart of the Brony sub-culture, but as with the fate of all fandoms it has turned in to a cesspool of Social justice warriors who know very little about the causes they claim to promote.  Many voices are shut down or stamped out due to opposing views and this is why I left. This isn't a bad thing generally, now I am able to look at this particular fandom as somewhat of an outsider.

    Tonight, I will get critique and analyze certain behaviors of deviants with in a fandom verses the deviants who are not apart of one. In most cases all deviant are apart of a fandom, however, they express their art differently than those deviants who tend to be hardcore fans.

    Lets look at the artist DNFTT2014. This particular deviant has been on here for 2 years and has a gallery. However, the trend seems to be that there are a flock of Deviants who only come to the site and use it the same way they might use Tumblr. Her gallery tends to work in this fashion since not all of her work is hers and some of the items featured are high opinionated blogs. In my opinion Deviantart sucks at being tumblr because it's just not set up that way. Now more than ever there have been a large amount of Deviants who only come on here to creatively misuse the site. From posting Tumblr-like blog to even trying to RP; this site is only good for one thing and that is posting art. DA is very lacking in a lot of ways I guess and it's trying to fix that, but why? It is because the community as changed and I can't tell whether it's good or bad. The artist's misuse of this site isn't good or bad, in fact many people creatively misuse technology all of the time.

    I guess some of the reasons these thoughts have crossed my mind is because after taking this course I can analyze certain behaviors a little better than I could before. These are the kinds of things I have to think critically about in my field of study.    


Please tell me if you want to be featured in my next installment and please let me know what you think on this topic.

Happy November everyone. I just wanted to say that I'm still a live. School has been keeping me very busy with all of these damn papers. I have some good news. This coming spring I will be graduating from Towson with my degree in Social Sciences. Super awesome kawaii desu. However, I will need to take my last six upper level courses all at once. I also noticed that this year's winter break is a lot shorter so after that I will be on another hiatus. DX Oh well it will all be worth it when I can get a real job.
