Honesty

I am obviously from a burgeoning Internet Old School, particularly when it comes to blogging or social media. I tend to be honest. Some people don't appreciate that, especially on Facebook. I'm not changing anything here on Live Journal because this is my place, and I will do as I fucking please. But, as far as Facebook is concerned, if any personal matters must be addressed, I'll just link them here if they aren't full of fucking rainbow vomit. Deal?

The only problem with this is that some news may need to be shared there, in the event of some unfortunate occurrence. So, does anyone want to be my Walter Cronkite, if the need arises? I'm kind of looking at you, Michelle, [livejournal.com profile] xevokitty, or [livejournal.com profile] brujah. Any other volunteers are more than welcome and met with gratitude.

In the meantime, let's just have fun dissing politics and listening to great songs and videos on Facebook until the world blows the fuck up. When it does, I'll do my best to let you know, if you even want to, that is.

On 3 June, 2002, a fellow Shrieker and longtime tribeswoman sent me an invitation to join LiveJournal. Fourteen years, and an assload of comedy, tragedy, weirdness, and wonder later, I am still here.

The only thing that will stop my association with LJ would be my death.

Or The Alpaca Lips.

Apparently, Ruth Davis Hayes got it in her mind that I should receive this fine award you see to your left.  I am honoured!  So before you read the insanity that spewed in tendrils from my fingertips, you ought to scurry forth and check out her uber-groovy website!

So here is how this is gonna work.  I am supposed to tell you 7 random things about me.  At the end of this mess, I'll challenge other writers/bloggers/all-round-badass Sith in training, so prepare yourselves, I know who you are.

So let's just get down to bwass tax, shall we?


  1. When I was baby/toddler, Gerber's Blueberry Buckle was my favourite baby food.  On into adulthood, I would occasionally pick up a jar, because blueberries.  Since they seem to have stopped making it, I have found the perfect replacement - blueberry pie filling.

  2. I became a fan of XTC by way of The Dukes of Stratosphear, who is actually XTC photgraphed using some kind of mystery Acid trip lens filter.

  3. Although I'm not proud of it, I have to admit that I have a knack for Macchiavellian activity.  If that makes me a high functioning sociopath, then so be it.  Just because I have the ability doesn't mean I use it.

  4. I think this is connected with #3:  I have had strong evangelical abilities from the age of around 4 and throughout my life.  I actually wanted to be a preacher as a kid but, because I had no danglies and it was still the 70s, when women were still expected to play certain roles, one of which was definitely not preaching, I had no proper (or what I thought was proper at the time) outlet.  When my uncle commented in 1982 that I had converted the entire family to the Electric Light Orchestra, I realised you don't necessarily have to be evangelising about god. I have since evangelised about a lot of things and people.  Praise be.

  5. I had my head humped by a Beagle in 1987 and I was French-kissed by a Senegal Parrot just a couple of months ago.

  6. I once wrote a weekly report for which I was responsible at work completely in Rap form.  That experience gave me a new level of respect, even awe, for Rappers.  Because that shit is hard!

  7. I once translated ABBA's "I Have a Dream" into Lasha-Talourah, the language of the Tarmi.

Now, whom do I want to victimise with this meme?  Let's see some action from [livejournal.com profile] chris_walsh, [livejournal.com profile] vulpine137, [livejournal.com profile] polypolyglot, [livejournal.com profile] xevokitty, and [livejournal.com profile] stacymichelleb. Hop to it, people!

asLJ

Mars Editor is a pain in the arse to use as a LiveJournal client. Now, I'm trying asLJ.

I still desperately long for Semagic, but it doesn't look like a Mac version of that will ever come to fruition. The main thing I loved about Semagic was its ability to notify when when a friend or community would post. That little blinking pencil always caught my attention and made me feel much more involved in the LJ community. Since I have been without that, I feel like an umbilical cord has been cut.

So, maybe asLJ will be a better fit, even though I still don't get notifications. Time will tell.

tinhuvielartanis: (Cliffs of Insanity)

Trying to gain a Mac version of Semagic was a monumental failure.  So, now, I’m trying out MarsEdit.  We’ll see how it turns out.  Not really much to report at the mo.  I may be using Flickr a bit more, since this application is more friendly with that image-sharer than it is with Photobucket.  I’d never been comfortable.

Cut because I try to be polite. )

Someone said in this movie Contagion that blogging is graffiti with punctuation. I take exception to that; my punctuation sucks.

I finally caved and created a Dreamwidth account. If you want to connect over there, just go to my profile page and do that clicky thing that gets you in trouble.
tinhuvielartanis: (Cliffs of Insanity)
I hate to admit it, but I've run out of anything of any worth to write in this journal. I don't know why. Maybe the anti-depressants haven't kicked in, or maybe they have and they've turned me into a zombie. Either way, I feel boring, worthless, and pretty ridiculous trying to keep a journal alive when I rarely have anything to say. Any ideas how I can spruce it up?
tinhuvielartanis: (Cliffs of Insanity)
I've noticed that a lot of people are compartmentalizing their blogs by activity or interest. Some have an LJ just for every day life, but they also have a Dreamwidth account for the more artistic pursuits. Then there is Twitter and Facebook for fast micro-blogging in the event someone wants to see a You Tube video or know that you're sitting down for lunch. I have a Twitter account that I barely use and a Facebook account because I like its speed and I do think that making one sentence updates on LJ is a bit much. Otherwise, I place everything that I am here on my Live Journal. This is who I am. This is what I talk about. These are the things that interest me. If I split everything up and tried to place one thing one place and another thing somewhere else, I'd stop blogging altogether and check myself into the crazy house, 'cos that would definitely drive me to distraction. How others do it is beyond me but, if that's their bag, so be it.

No Trespassing
Violators will be shot
Survivors will be shot again


This has pretty much always been my policy regarding the Cliffs of Insanity. Circumstances have dictated that I harbour a modicum of secrecy over the past year and that led to my inability to even express myself at all at times. No more. Today is a new day and I am going back to my old Sithly policies of this space being a Free Expression Zone.

And it feels good.

Statistics

I'm nearing my seventh anniversary here on Live Journal. It's hard to believe that the Cliffs have been up and running for closer to a decade than not. Even though my 'blog-o-date' is over a month away, my recent statistics struck me as relevant, so I'm posting them now. Who says I can't? The Blog Cops? Are there such a thing? Well, they can't stop me bwaaahahahah!

So, here's the skinny, this post being #7600.

Tinhuviel's Cliff of Insanity
Move along, right over that edge, thank you NEXT!

Over the years, a lot of things about this journal has changed, but the one thing that has not changed is the title.  I guess the title of the blog will always be Tin's Cliff of Insanity because I felt like I was dangling by my fingernails from that proverbial cliff when I began writing here and I feel much the same way now.  The more things change, the more they stay the same, I guess. I may do this again come 3 June or I may not, just to be contrary.

Thou shalt add this RSS feed* to thy journal immediately, lest Tinhuviel call down a heapin' helpin' of hellraisin' that shall plague thee until the advent of the Alpaca Lips. Multitudinous blessings shall shower down upon thee if thou hast a MySpace account and thou addeth this blog to thy friends list thereon.

Yea and verily and amen.

*It's really kinda funny that this should come into existence now, because [livejournal.com profile] falkenna and I were discussing MySpace just recently.
