This is the place where you can personalize your profile!
By moving, adding and personalizing widgets.
You can drag and drop to rearrange.
You can edit widgets to customize them.
The bottom has widgets you can add!
Some widgets you can only access when you get a premium membership.
Some widgets have options that are only available when you get a premium membership.
We've split the page into zones!
Certain widgets can only be added to certain zones.
"Why," you ask? Because we want profile pages to have freedom of customization, but also to have some consistency. This way, when anyone visits a deviant, they know they can always find the art in the top left, and personal info in the top right.
Don't forget, restraints can bring out the creativity in you!
Now go forth and astound us all with your devious profiles!
If you're into retro game music, or digital music, maybe you'll enjoy this (or not)!
It's the first time I've married two personal interests like this - music and gaming. The last few months I've gotten back into composing/singing, (it comes and goes, as it has most of my life). I'm glad to feel creative musically, since my book writing has suffered the last months (lots of reasons).
Anyway, while I'm always working on originals, my boyfriend likes to throw old 8 and 16 bit tracks to me to see what I come up with.
(Takes me a few weeks, since I tend to work on 3-4 things at once.)
Anyway, this is my take on the Batman NES Stage 1 8-bit theme, "Streets of Desolation".
I've made quite a few changes - slower tempo, different key, and added an original bridge. While I kept the original melody and bassline pretty much throughout, I also added countermelodies and just basically had fun making it into something that I felt paid tribute to the original, while making it new again. If you like it, there's a higher quality audio version on Soundcloud: soundcloud.com/heavymetalteacu…
For comparison, here's a link to the original, from Sunsoft's 1989 game:
