Public Service Announcement [Apr. 23rd, 2009|07:47 pm]
Amanda
[Current Mood |confusedconfused]

This journal is friends-only, because having the eyes of the entire Village of the Interwebs fixed on my blog really gives me the willies. If you're interested, though, in being let into this secret world of inane ramblings and hopefully exciting things, leave a comment and I'll see what I can do.

And now, for your viewing pleasure, I give you a nebula:

Hi! This is Tad Williams. Please excuse the interruption to your regularly scheduled bloggery. People here have mentioned my work, or love fantasy and science fiction, so I just wanted to pop in and say that anyone interested in reading a chapter from my new book, SHADOWRISE, should drop an email to:

deborah.shazam@batnet.com

and we'll send one to you. We won't do anything rotten with your email address, either, we promise.

Thanks – Tad
ps. Congrats on your engagement!

Hi!

I just recently joined LiveJournal and am looking for interesting LJ to read & stuff. I also noticed that one of your interests (as stated, I believe, unless the search mechanism was wrong) was "Memory, Sorrow and Thorn)". As the trilogy of Ineluki, Simon and the legendary swords is one of my favourites, I thought that it'd be interested to find someone that appreciates it as I do.

Thank you for the time it took to read this, and I hope you understand my...however it's called..a friend invite?

Thank you and my the forces of the infinite what? guide your hand!

:)

I am eager to know the true meaning of the infinite what?.

Greetings and salutations! I'm trying to reconnect with old friends from lj via facebook! I figured my best bet would be to revisit my old FL.

good day! xx40 here, and i seek friends

found you by searching
mr. orwell
(i happen to find animal farm rather cute
i mean... dark... but cute)

lord of the rings is also awesome
manson has some pretty good songs
and i'm getting back into tori

your picture of a nebula makes me happy
i like to think of myself as a photon
in unrequited love
with gravity

may i add you as a friend?

Certainly! Thanks for finding me. I like you because you seem strange, and strange is very good :)
I have been a fan of Orwell's work for years upon years, especially 1984, as well as Tolkien (have you read The Silmarillion? If not, you should.)
They're finding that black holes provide the gravity that keeps most galaxies together. Scary, but sort of awesome too.

oi! i kind of killed 1984 for myself
by becoming obsessed with it
for a few months
and asking everyone i know
'OMG!? ISN'T 1984 TEH BEST?!'

to which they said
'shut up, xx40. nobody -likes- that book
they can only respect it'

but seriously! 'down and out in paris and london'
is kind of better than 1984
...kind of
because i really used to be a dishwasher
but i don't think i've ever
met o'brien

LORD OF THE RINGS! Mr. Tolkien!
omg, i'm going to see the hobbit
in PLAY form
on april 6~!

...i've read the trilogy
but can you believe i have yet to finish
watching the return of the king?

reading is hit and miss with me today
perhaps some silmarillion would be beneficial

gravity intrigues me...

I say that all the time--if only the they's would stop anthropomorphizing books (which somehow don't seem like they could have such a holier-than-thou attitude), then the world would be closer to being a just fine place.
I have not read that Orwell book! I simply must...

What was it like being a dishwasher? I've always wondered...

The Hobbit in play form was excellent--the little-kid version of me saw it on a field trip in the 2nd grade.

You're not missing much with RotK...they totally screwed up Faramir and made him kinda evil, which made me murderously angry because Faramir is one of my favorite characters exactly because he's so noble, wise, chivalrous and courteous, and therefore probably also utterly, utterly hot. And in that film he was NOT...he was just all evil for no good reason. They also made Legolas and Gimli into show-offs, which is totally not how they would have been. It WAS very nice to see Sauron get utterly wasted and die a horribly fiery death at the end, though, but then again we somehow expected that to happen.

And yes, The Silmarillion rocks to degrees incapable of coherent description. It starts off kinda boring and slow, but if you stick with it you'll soon be reading about legends and characters that are too epic to contain in your head. This is the reason that a popular metal group made a whole album about it (Blind Guardian--Nightfall of Middle-Earth)! My absolute favorite is The Tale of Beren and Luthien, though the stories of Feanor are pretty high up there too.

Of course not--I never mind getting to know new people, and I certainly am interesting. Not sure what else I am, but that you can judge with time ;) It's additionally awesome that you're into cooking, crafts, plants, organics, and you're friends with static___sound!

Next Generation or Original series?

I grew up with TNG, so that will always come first simply out of solidarity. Though, I honestly enjoyed all five of the series so much that I don't know which I'd pick. They each have their own little perks that make them especially nice. Do you have a favorite?

Room for one more? I don't mind standing

I'm new around these parts and I stumbled over your announcement. I love my friends but sometimes I think it would be cool to have a secret friend to talk to. So check out my profile and decide if I'm worthy

Hi. Interested in finding new interesting people to stay in touch with and you have passed my filters. Congratulations! There's just something about the Greek (?) girl icon with space nebulae in the background.

Interested in being added as a friend. My journal is open and pseudonymous so feel free to check it out to get a feel for my style.

Thanks!
