I won't actually be offline for this convention, if everything goes right. So I don't know why I'm throwing all these things up at the last minute. But I am! I guess there's nothing like needing to work on one thing to want to work on something else...
0.1Miles out of Hobbiton:
412.7.Miles to Rivendell:
Look at your LJ "interests" list. If you have fewer than 50 interests, pick every fifth one. If you have between fifty and seventy-five interests, pick every seventh one. If you have over seventy-five interests, pick every tenth one. If you have fewer than ten, pick all of 'em. List them here, and tell everyone exactly what it is about these things that interests you so much.
BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: Best. Damn. Show. On. Television. Which admittedly is only saying so much, but still. To steal a line, Starbuck is
my TV girlfriend.
COLLECTIVES: In this case, it refers to collective intelligences. One example is Mars from the webcomic A Miracle of Science
, which you should totally go read from the beginning. Now.
ELVES: I am one, and there aren't a zillion of us, so the rest kind of just follows, doesn't it?
GROUNDCOVERS: I like gardening; I'm not fond of weeding; I prefer to avoid herbicides and won't even use most of those made. (Anything that doesn't degrade in short order to something harmless is out. That leaves me about two options, one of which I'm even only willing to apply with an eye dropper directly to the plant in question, and that only because it's horsetail I'm fighting here, c'mon!) Groundcovers squeeze out many common weeds and are often quite pretty. I've posted flower pictures from some groundcovers I've planted and others which I've found around. The flowers are almost always small, but there are often many of them.
MANGA: Mostly, I just like a lot of the art styles I find there. I got here from my anime interest; also, occasionally, I get up the nerve to try translating really simple stuff as kind of homework.
PAGANISM: As an independently practicing neopagan, I have to say that monotheism never made any damn sense to me. However, I'm not completely without the theology bit, even if I don't let it rule my political thinking.
: YAPPAPPA YAPPAPPA II SHA-N TEN!! I think this was the anime that got me into anime. Then I read the manga, or at least a decent chunk of it.
SCULPTING: I think I post enough about this already. If not, go look at this for a while
. I'll wait.
STARLIGHT: Hum. I just like it. I like how it looks and how things look under it. I like things that look like it, like stone with little reflective bits at night. It all goes back to the same thing the sculpture is about when I'm being serious about it - how light moves around.
UNIMOG: YOU ARE REQUIRED TO BE UNIMOG'S SUNSHINE. YOU ARE REQUIRED TO BE UNIMOG'S SOLE SOURCE OF SUNSHINE. YOU ARE REQUIRED TO MAKE UNIMOG HAPPY WHEN UNIMOG'S SKIES HAVE BECOME GRAY
. (We actually started to put together a cover of this song when we still had band. I think it would have been a Crime and the Forces of Evil project, but I dunno. Anyway, we have it on disc somewhere.)
