WTF?? - Jessie T. Wolf — LiveJournal
What the f*ck is up with art thieves anyway? I just don’t get it. O.o What in a person’s right mind would make them think that they could just go and steal another artist’s work – ESPECIALLY if the artist is well known and has a fan following – and then think they can actually get away with it? Boy, they must feel REALLY bloody stupid when they get pointed out. I mean, what the hell kind of excuse can you give for doing something like that? *just shakes her head*
On a side note… I am such a canine. I am just too quick to jump at the throats of other people for attacking (verbally or otherwise) anyone who is close to me. Even if I know they can stick up for themselves… I still have that need to say my own piece. And that is… Goddammit, stop being such idiots!! Learn the difference between someone just joking around and being sarcastic, to when they’re actually making a serious point! Don’t take EVERYTHING in life so damn seriously, and then go and create a bunch of unnecessary drama. It’s f*cking annoying, stupid, and very, very petty. >.
Current Mood: The hell?
I've been on all three parts of that. First, sorry to hear that, hopefully you can embarrass the art thieves enough to apologize for stealing your art. Secondly, yeah, sucks when people can't understand sarcasm. But thirdly, depends if the person receiving the sarcasm has reason to be on edge enough to think the sarcasm may be anything but a slam against them.
Furry is a seething pot of ill feelings and drama, after all.
yup, it most certainly is -_-; , people should really learn to take a joke though.
funny thing, that happened to one of my other lj friends about a month ago about the art.

Yes. Yes it is. :/ Too much damn drama. >.< And the situation with the sarcasm... it wasn't made towards anyone. It was just a general statement made in a friend's LJ, that one person decided to take a little too seriously and start a whole bunch of drama with, when the post had NOTHING to do with them at all in the first place. Course, when you have one person post something like that, you'll get a few dozen other people jump on the issue, and cause even more drama. It just makes me go... what the hell?? O.o
As for the art theft... no one's stolen anything from me yet, thankfully. But a couple of my other artist friends have been having trouble with art theft on an almost regular basis lately. :/ It kinda sucks.
*thinks* The only times people have started drama with me in LJ, publically or privately, they've used my name specifically.
Can't remember any not named references ever being made to me or about me in a LJ. Whew! I must be one of the lucky 1% in LJ to not have that happen, or just be really really dense at picking up when someone is insulting me. ;)
This guy I know has a bad habit of claiming other furs' artwork as his own, usually without even changing the original artist's signature. Made me want to drive to PA and slash the tires on his beloved truck.

Heh... stupid art thieves. XD I really don't know how they think they can get off scott free. What's the point of lying about something like that, when it can easily be proved untrue? >.
Then again, there's something to be said about springing to someone's defence as a knee-jerk reaction. I've seen things that shit me to tears from both sides over this whole debacle.

It's not a knee-jerk reaction. O.o I'd come to any of my friends' defence if I feel it's justified. Not JUST because they're my friend. If I have two friends, and one is being an absolute idiot, I will tell the friend who's in the wrong to stop being a dumbass.
On a side note… I am such a canine.
omg puppy! *pouncechew* ^_^

*giggles and chews back, wags!* ^^
Maybe when my art doesn't suck and I'm a more popular artist I'll have fanbois and art thieves too. =)

Nono, Khaki... you DON'T want those kind of things. :-P Mebbe some fans... but you so don't want art thieves. XD *pets*
well, you know you're popular when people start to steal your art, as for fans, depends on the amount of fans.
Heh, well I don't have fanbois or anything. I just have angsty people who talk about me behind my back and post lies and bullshit in their LJ's.
But I'd rather have fanbois.
*hugs supportively* Give 'em hell, wuffie. :>
