Amazing artwork from the Behance network to inspire you. This post has a lot of large images.  Credit for all work is above the images. SOME IMAGES ARE SLIGHTLY NSFW.

I figured I'd make this next post themed: birds & feathers! I have a parrot (an African Grey), and went to the zoo yesterday & saw some neat birds, so I was inspired.

Like a bird on a wire, I have tried in my way to be free.Collapse )

PS: Does anyone know how to stop the layout from displaying in full posts? IE, after you click the cut, the layout's still on/there, but in many places it goes to LJ's default clean white page (which I highly prefer). If anyone knows how to make that display, leave a comment. Thanks!

I found beautiful pics musing on the net and I felt like sharing.
Textless icons are not bases. I'll post them later to my own community but for now you have the exclusivity !
I just hope I won't make silly mistakes...

Regret nothing. Not the cruel novels you read
to the end just to find out who killed the cook.
Not the insipid movies that made you cry in the dark,
in spite of your intelligence, your sophistication.
Not the lover you left quivering in a hotel parking lot,
the one you beat to the punchline, the door, or the one
who left you in your red dress and shoes, the ones
that crimped your toes, don't regret those.
Not the nights you called god names and cursed
your mother, sunk like a dog in the livingroom couch,
chewing your nails and crushed by loneliness.
You were meant to inhale those smoky nights
over a bottle of flat beer, to sweep stuck onion rings
across the dirty restaurant floor, to wear the frayed
coat with its loose buttons, its pockets full of struck matches.
You've walked those streets a thousand times and still
you end up here. Regret none of it, not one
of the wasted days you wanted to know nothing,
when the lights from the carnival rides
were the only stars you believed in, loving them
for their uselessness, not wanting to be saved.
You've traveled this far on the back of every mistake,
ridden in dark-eyed and morose but calm as a house
after the TV set has been pitched out the upstairs
window. Harmless as a broken ax. Emptied
of expectation. Relax. Don't bother remembering
any of it. Let's stop here, under the lit sign
on the corner, and watch all the people walk by.

Here is museshowcase's very first inspiration post! It's a bit of a hodgepodge (not that there's anything wrong with that!), but hopefully someone will find something that clicks with them.

Onward!Collapse )

Once you've applied to be a muse & gotten posting access, you're just one step away from posting! And that step is reading & understanding this post. To keep order & synchronicity between different muses posting different things, we've got a few guidelines that every muse should adhere to.

1. ABOVE ALL ELSE, use an LJ-cut. If you don't know how, LJ's FAQ explains it here. Many posts will contain graphics, pictures, and/or videos, and we don't want to break anyone's friendslist. Anything bigger than 300 pixels in width or height should be cut. Previews of a few icons are fine, or a thumbnail that doesn't exceed 300x300 px, but anything else? You guessed it - a cut.

2. Be sure to tag your entries like this: @muse: yourusername; #type: type of inspiration (fanmix, wallpaper, icons, etc - repeat as much as needed until all types in your post are listed); $fandom: this one is optional - if you have a fandom (Lost, Fringe, Buffy, etc) that these inspirations pertain to, tag it (again, repeat this tag as much as needed until all fandoms are listed).

3. I can't think of anything else pertinent to posting, so please A) use common sense, B) use other people's posts as a reference for what to do, C) page a muse if you get lost.

So you want to be a muse, huh? You'd like to distribute inspiration to the masses, spur on people's creative urges, and generally be excellent? That's great to hear! Follow the cut to fill out a quick form, and get posting access.

This is also a place for non-muses to view quick info on our current muses, so please keep in mind that anything you put in your comment will be public.

Ready? Okay!Collapse )
