Well haven't posted on here in a while.. for good reason. Never been the journal type and so there's no catharsis, and no one reads this shit anyway. But in my effort to be interesting.. A wonderful book I read not long ago is "Just Kids' by Patti Smith. It's a glimpse into the life of artist and photographer Robert Mapplethorpe, Patti...

Sharing our experiences with great people is one of the best ways to learn according to me... I love this community for that, I've learned so much from others... and I sure hope they learned something from me as well.

Thank you very much. The other is definitely a losing battle for me. Oh well.

Flames that Yielded Endless Cold

Dancing by night over bogs, brakes and water meadows, the flamelike luminance called ignis fatuus, or "fool-ish fire", once was common throughout northern Europe. Although the learned would claim that the flames were caused by marsh gases, country folk knew better, and tales of mishaps made them wary.

The strange light was given myriad names- "will-o'-the-wisp", "jack-o'-lantern", "fox...

Murder by Spectral Proxy-

In Iceland, ghosts could be made by magic from a human bone. Called sendlings, these ghosts were used as murderers. But they could be defeated. Once for instance, there lived a handsome widow who was much sought after as a wife. She refused all her suitors, however, including one who was skilled in wizardry.
After that proposal, the widow, a prescient...

Couldn't even tell you the specs of my George Foreman-looking console. Can't read, can't write... it's my escape at the moment. Had a large drive sitting around so changed them out, a process that was more difficult than it should've been (restoring, not the hardware issue). I can see me trying to hack it... gotta keep busy to avoid that. Hadn't heard of any practical uses for it though it has a built in option to install other OSes. I don't have the patience for workarounds usually. How old an iMac were you looking at?

Man, I have given up. Had one around here that moved to California that likes to call me up at 1 am (EST) after she's had a little wine. Pity, for she is a special one. Pity, too, that she's married blackeyed Then there's the one from high school (in SC) that didn't find me interesting two years ago when we got back together but is all about me now. Weird. Oh, and you wouldn't believe the Confirm Friendship requests I keep getting on here!

I'm not sure. There are limitations but I realize now that I've lived my life preparing and not getting any further along. Just breaking even. Sometimes I guess we have to over reach, even fall, to really move ahead.

Not suggesting doing that. Still a "belt and suspenders" man. Things usually come to a head and make you leap, be it personal and/or professional. I'm still waiting to be pushed off the ledge, afraid that's the only thing that will make me move ahead.

I finally made it over to the Apple store with my mini and got it tuned up a bit. It is definitely faster now. And supposedly all the shit I have on my desktop slows it down, so maybe it will get even faster. It's funny the Genius bar guy pointed out the desktop problem using this analogy- "It's like if you have...

I'm old school.. I LOVE Kant. I'm really big in to ethics though and love Peter Singer. Also love Camus. He brings writing and philosophy so beautifully together. It's rather hard to pick just one, but I find myself agreeing with Kant most of the time... I didn't do much on the beach. Just read teenage magazines tongue

reid:

You might have heard of the book "The Stranger" or "The Plague." Those are both by Camus. He was also a philosopher though and incorporates his philosophy in to those books. Peter Singer is a pretty well known modern day ethics philosopher. Surprised you haven't heard of him.

My computer has been freaking me out a little... waaay slower than it used to be. And the slow internet just fucking pisses me off of course, because I know that it's slow just because AT&T slows it down to make more money. I wonder if the net neutrality thing will ever make them change that. Fat chance I guess, at least in...

The big reason Scott hasn't made a big move for it is he has a son in MB. He's raising the kid himself now. It's holding him back professionally but perhaps helping him personally.

Heard of the proms, know very little about them. I disagree on the current state of SG, though; it is really mainstream nowadays. I've been rewatching the First Tour DVD and realize how that original element seems to be slipping away. Newbs in the forums acting like it's their site, OGSGs having less and less to do with the site. I feel the whole thing sold out when HQ moved from Portland to LA, and Quinne left Canada for the same destination. But what the hell do I know, I'm not part of the culture either. Just a misfit. Scott actually turned me to the site, long before he shot for it. Now I'm here for the free Mac tech support.

I'm preparing to start Galactica over from the beginning. I was kinda hoping you could tell me more about Caprica. Been considering checking it out.

thefly:

Yeah, Caprica has little to do with BGS; it happens long before the events of the Cylon attack. Something about fueding families? But, hey, people bought into Torchwood as a spinoff of Doctor Who so who knows.


Stormy, Tegan, Reagan (one of my faves), Snow and others were involved in the First Tour DVD and felt they were stiffed by SG. They worked and got no proceeds. Katie was particularly vocal about it. To make it worse, the girls were having their blogs altered, anti-SG comments were deleted having most of them realize that the site was not about expression of self but a typical porn site. In fact, I may find myself banned for typing this now, that's how serious it was taken. It was also at this time people found out Missy did not run the site, was just a figurehead for the "run by women" moniker, and Sean a exploitative smut peddler. Again, I mention Quinne for I believe she has evolved more than any other SG over the years, alt girl from Canada to glammed up SG who's only shot by Sean now.

I feel good when I see Mary, Quinne, Rigel, India, Nixon, Twwly for it is OGSG continuing to be part of the culture. I lament the lack of future products from Erin (a fave) and any she's done multi sets with, not to mention my personal faves Bailey, Edea, and Echo (whom I followed here from a different site) who are no longer active (self imposed, not banned). Kudos to Bully, Sash, Ajilee and other newbloods who seem to mesh old school with the mainstream. I still believe the original "for girls by girls" message no long exists once SG itself went mainstream (c'mon, they were featured in Playboy) though like you mentioned SFSG, it seems some of the members possibly are keeping that alive, maintaining alternative in popular culture. It's the site that has begun to bother me.

OMG it feels so good to have some cash and be able to pay some of my bills. Now if I could get laid... Well at least I can pick up some much needed camera equipment. In fact I already purchased my first Voigtlander Bessa, the finderless Bessa T. Maybe I'll post a photo below since it is in such nice shape smile It is...

Yep, definitely a 'nam era song. My point, I guess, is like you said, brotherhood. However, one of the people that have hurt me the most is my mother, we didn't talk for two years (kicking me out of the house instead of dealing with the problem, just silencing the complainer, kinda does that to a relationship). I've also found dogs to be as fickle as humans. Friendship is a symbiotic relationship wherein a person receives more help, attention, whatever than they have to give. It's something you can never trust in the opposite sex in a friendship. I have a "friend" who has dangled me over her husband's head for longer than they've been married. When she left him (the first sign they shouldn't have gotten married, but I digress) I was who he searched out for he knew she'd be with me. My number seems to be found whenever they are having problems. Chris Rock summed it up best I've seen. Platonic friend= dick in a glass. In case of emergency, break glass. I want to say I haven't had a true friend (non-internet, I'm amazed at how my Friends section has grown) for around five years but then I think of how those friends, like I said, were getting more help than they were giving.

With the economy the way that it is I am afraid of making any moves at the moment (not to mention the debt I'm trying to work off to free up money). I've got a secure job in healthcare but I hate myself for being there. But I'm planning. I don't really need for nothing, no real wants, so things should be okay. But, I don't know, it's easier to be ignored by tourists and locals in a resort town than to have to endure the self-degradation of people in the sticks. I began to wonder yesterday why Stephen King lives in rural Maine still. If I had the means I am sure I'd try to keep moving. I like having, say, a base of operations to return to if I wanted; but I have no home and know no where I'd want it to be. As the poet Tom Petty inked, The waiting is the hardest part. The inaction of it truly bothers me since reaching thirty. Youth is dwindling down and at least a direction should be decided.

aww thanks for the photolove! biggrin
