Writer's Block: Fall Footwear

Are you a boot person or a shoe person? Why?

Boots, definitely. Boots are a personal wardrobe staple. I have 4 pairs of functional boots (backpacking, snow, steel-toed, and firefighting) and 3 pairs of fashion boots.

Music meme I stole from a friend on Facebook

Since I can't figure out how to use Facebook, I'm posting this here.

Spend the Night [Music Meme]


1. Put Your iTunes/Ipod/Zune on shuffle.

2. For each question, press the next button to get your answer.

3. You must write down the name of the song no matter how silly it sounds!

4. Put any comments in brackets after the song name.

Since my iTunes playlist is massive (30 GB) and has a bunch of crap on that I didn't put on there and have never listened to, I did this with my iPod playlist. My iPod playlist is a bit on the small side, because my iPod is an antique nano.

If someone says, "Is this okay?”

Red Hill Mining Town – U2

How would you describe yourself?

Ghost Riders in the Sky – Johnny Cash
[Well, some people would say I’m dammed, being a tattooed lesbian atheist.]

What do you like in a guy/girl?

Two Beds and a Coffee Machine – Savage Garden
[Really, I’m looking to be abused?]

Have you ever boycotted a company or product? If so, what was it, and what caused you to boycott it?

I am boycotting the state of Arizona until they get rid of that ridiculous anti-immigration law.

Fight with Tools

I went and saw Flobots in concert. They are AMAZING. I lack words to describe how awesome they are. They have such an energetic, charismatic stage presence. There was so much energy in the audience too. During the chorus of Rise, everyone was jumping with their arms up, as if by doing so we could take flight and change the world. "Rise, together we rise."

I took a video of Superhero. It's not great quality, because it was shot using my crappy digital camera. You may have to turn your volume up a lot to hear it.

First EGL post and Trolling
rollback 88
I made my first post to egl yesterday and got trolled while I was asleep. Many thanks to colortheory and laiferr for stepping in. I really appreciate all the work our mods do on the comm generally. By the time I got online, this had already made getoffegl, here. For anyone who missed it: necrid_ei, taradox, and parasitezero are the same person. laiferr has banned them.

There have also been some non-trolls objecting to the photoshoot. I think I'm going to mostly stay out of the discussion on getoffegl. Trying to respond to everyone who disagrees with me is a waste of my time, because I'm never going to persuade most of them. I put in a few responses over there, which means if people have a brain (I know a lot of them don't) they know I read what they're saying. In case anyone really wants my opinions on these objections, I'm posting them here.

Response/Rant HereCollapse )

Everyone is offended by something, and if we restricted egl to just things that offended no one, it would be a more boring, less creative comm.

Edit: I am not apologizing. I regret that my post offended people, but regrets are not the same as an apology. I'm not going to apologize, because I'm not going to delete the post, and without the action to back it up an apology seems hollow to me. I hate hollow apologies.

Steampunk Personality Test

Your result for Test Who You Are in the Steampunk Ether City of Salmagundi...

Arcanist-Major Edmund Ras (the Sorcerer)

33% Cerys, 63% Ras, 40% Bell, 34% Wilde, 39% LeClerc, 10% Kendrick and 10% Fuzzy!

You are Arcanist-Major Edmund Ras of the Praxian Alliance, assigned as liaison to the Legion of Peace. You are a scholar, a scientist, and a sorcerer, in a city that distrusts the first two and despises the third. Though you are kind-hearted and concerned about the betterment of others, the hostility you routinely encounter has left you jaded and sardonic. You have a sharp tongue and a very dark sense of humor, and you delight in mocking those with irrational fears and prejudices. Your outlook on life teeters between the optimistic and the resigned, and you still can’t decide if humanity is worth the trouble. Still, even if humanity is doomed to self-destruction you are willing to risk your life to give it just one more generation.
