[livejournal.com profile] chite posted the movie quotes meme. But she did it over on FaceBook.

No really this will be tying into a tosocnet post RSN.

So.. if you want to get First crack at my movie quotes meme ---

I don't mean to sound alarmist... well, okay.. I do mean to sound alarmist.

Today's post on my blog tosocnet will give all the details of why I've started this meme and perhaps why I suggest you consider doing the same.

All comments for this post are screened for privacy
If you actively or even inactively read me on LJ please consider leaving a comment with the following:

1) Your name or nickname you want me to remember you by
2) A Contact email
3) Other social networking sites you use. The best way to leave them is one of two ways:
    3a) A link to your profile page on the site
    3b) In URI format: okcupid://lordandrei
(note: I don't need your LJ profile, obviously)

List as many as you can!
Here are some ideas: LinkedIn, Friendster, Tribe, Facebook, OKCupid, Classmates, Twitter, Orkut (Well, if you're brazillian I guess), Amazon, Netflix

By the way... you may want to archive your LJ's just for safety. Sadly in my case that's over 2600 entries over a little more than 7 years.

To allay panic: I don't think LJ is going to vanish any time in the near future.

As I will have extra time over the holidays; it's anonymous guessing game time again.

Three Simple rules:

1. You ANONYMOUSLY post 3 clues about yourself.
2. I get 3 guesses. For the first two guesses you have to give me another ANONYMOUS clue.
3. After 3 guesses you have to tell.

I am bolding anonymous because sometimes people forget and it kind of blows the entire game.

I may post links to my previous games of this because... well, there are people who left clues who dropped off the net and I never did solve them. Note: you don't have to be on LJ for this one. But you do need to keep an eye on the post. (track this post)

If you managed to defeat me... You have a choice, you can claim a one of a cheap prize that I already have. Or you can try giving me 3 more clues. Beating me then means a real prize.

Okay... come 'n' get me. ;)

BTW: Happy holidays

Apart from Facebook and Twitter (of which are still somewhat 'toys' to me) I have not been online very much the past few weeks, months, etc..

As I like to often quote "Yes" from 90125 (not to be confused with 90210), "I'm going through some changes"

My wonderful partner, spouse, and all around awesome H-like one has one. If you're not reading The Living Artist, you're really missing out. LJ Users can quick add a feed from this link which takes you to [livejournal.com profile] livingartist. I find myself wanting to write a blog.

The meaty part you're unlikely to read. :) )

Dear Santa...

Dear Santa,

This year I've been busy!

In August I signed my organ donor card (28 points). Last Friday on a flight to Colorado Springs, I stole the emergency flight information card (-40 points). Last Monday I gave [livejournal.com profile] kdana a kidney (1000 points). Last Wednesday I bought porn for [livejournal.com profile] papertygre (10 points). Last Sunday I turned [livejournal.com profile] shirtlifterbear in for running naked in the mall (3 points).

Overall, I've been nice (1001 points). For Christmas I deserve a Playstation 3!

I really wouldn't mind having my servers beaten and this popping up on everyone's LJ.

I hate slamming the opposition during political races. Well, okay.. I don't support the, "We=good guys, they=bad guys." But I shall rest on my hypocrisy long enough to have a tiny bit of fun.

The current meme asks:
Post a picture of someone or something that is smarter than Sarah Palin

So I had to go with the most common denominator.

Well, gosh I have to go with the obvious )

Laddie, it's talk like a Pirate day...

Pirates love F-Words. (Wish I could find a YouTube reference)

Meme History: [livejournal.com profile] kitten_goddess --> [livejournal.com profile] idragosani

These kinds of memes always get me in some sort of trouble. So of course... I do them

Here's the game:

There are 30 questions
Each one has been answered by one name (typically an LJ user)
The questions however are not visible.
The only way to get the questions is to request them and perpetuate the meme.
So you have to comment that you'll do the meme and follow through.

Below the cut are 30 answers
30 Answers... But what are the questions? )

Been working on this one most of the day. This is the first of several. Also.. if you post this meme or have posted it... please comment with a link to your post so I can jump on yours.

and now...

Comment on this post and say Pardon me, sir. Do you have any Grey Poupon or something like that. I will choose seven interests from your profile and you will explain what they mean and why you are interested in them. Post this along with your answers in your own journal so that others can play along.

Here are the first set(s) that I was asked about:

From [livejournal.com profile] princekermit:

קבּלה - I use the Hebrew spelling because this word is most usually spelled wrong as Kaballah. No really, to see what I mean, check out this post.

Anyway, I loved codes as a kid. I've actually invented one or two cyphers that I think 'intelligence organizations' might be interested in. That being said... Kaballah is my cypher into mysticism. It blends esoterica with coded treasure finding. Quite fun.

cocoa development - I have been a professional (meanin' gettin' paid fer it) software engineer for about 15 years. But the thing is that I have maybe four formal college classes in the field. Everything else was learned outside college. I was a Theatre and Radio/TV production major. One of the major things that is 'expected' of an SE is good knowledge of "basic libraries". Effecitively, knowing not just how to use the card catalogue, but where the common reference books are, and about 25-50% of the contents of those reference books. When I joined the industry... I was a bit behind. Ask my coworkers about my C++ knowledge. They'll agree. Cocoa... was a new library that appeared while I was in the industry. (Those of you who are NeXTies can just hush up now)... So.. I got the same jump as others. I like the language of Objective -C and I love the Cocoa Libraries. (Very intuitive)... So I have a high interest in Cocoa Development.

esoteric trivia - When I was a kid, my dad had a Trivia encyclopaedia. And let me tell you this was obscure stuff. It was alphabetical and included alpha-numerics. It was like reading wikipedia in places. Entries like: 1313 - The Mockingbird Lane street address of the Munsters. Since then, I have grown to be a fount of (perceived to be) useless information. I love it. Sometimes people actually get an "Oh? Really?!?!" moment out of it and take it with them. To me... that makes it worth it.

ethical hedonism - Hedonism is the absolute pursuit of pleasure. Or more essentially that good and bad can be equated with pleasure and pain. Now... I've never been a fan of such vague terms as "Good", "Evil", "Pain", etc. Personally, I view the process of ethical hedonism, as using the feelings of pleasure to drive an understanding of True Will. Rather than simply add 'and vice versa' I want to describe that the process works backwards as well. As I learn more about myself as a person, it steers what does and doesn't feel good. And if you really want to know what drove this description... ask [livejournal.com profile] shimmeringjemmy about the first time she kissed me.

These last three are tricky. I read them and thought, "Are they in my interest list?" Nope.. They are in my dislike list. But you listed them.

my self image - I honestly don't dislike who I am. But I have a very difficult time being fair to myself about my image. I am hypercritical and often convinced I'm not as good, pretty, thin, etc as I really should be.

scientology - This one is simple. Short and sweet. The first contact potential members have with this organization is thinly veiled brainwashing. After you join the brain washing becomes more severe. And I can not respect or like or support any organization that attracts its members through coersion.

sun saturn conjunction - This is just something i have to deal with. What this means is that in my birthchart, the planet Saturn was in the sky in a similar place to the sun. From an astrological point of view it represents limits placed on self. Don't like it.

Been a busy offline weekend... So.. Here's where the questions meme stands.

Want to ask me a question? Any question? Here's the place to do it

Questions answered...
  1. You have a long and varied list of how to contact you and regale us with stories of all the scammers who contact you, but it is difficult to get an actual response from you. Am I doing something wrong?
  2. Do you believe in angels?
  3. Why do you like Doctor Who?
Questions pending...
  1. What is your definition of "Sex"?
  2. When did you realize that you were falling in love with your lovely wife? What is one special thing about her that still makes you all warm and buttery inside when you think about it?
  3. What would one of your perfect days be like?
  4. What do you like about polyamory?
  5. How do you define yourself as a priest?
And I'll keep answering questions even into April.

Comments and questions should go with the original posts

This is a meme I came across in my history from about 3 years ago.

1. Post a list of ten TV shows or fandoms you follow (current or cancelled).

2. Have your friends list guess your favorite character from each show. (comments are screened)

3. When guessed, bold the line and write a sentence about why you like the character.

4. Post in your own LiveJournal.

The list:

1. Doctor Who [livejournal.com profile] chite: Sarah Jane. She was the best companion of the lot.
2. Babylon 5
3. Firefly (two answers)
4. M.A.S.H.[livejournal.com profile] chite: Hawkeye... It just was. There was no one else.
5. Wonderfalls
6. Red Dwarf [livejournal.com profile] bayareajenn: Lister. Cloister the Stupid in the land of Fushell :-D
7. Buffy the Vampire Slayer
8. Family Guy [livejournal.com profile] bayareajenn: Brian. The voice of reason who still might sniff your butt.
9. You can't do that on television [livejournal.com profile] bayareajenn: Moose. Great personality. And well, did several episodes barefoot. Was awesome.
And, for the final challenge:
10. Space Academy
lordandrei: (The master teaches....)
No meme history... Too many people have this one up.

March is Ask a Question Month

And if it wasn't I guess we really don't get a choice now

Comments are screened, ask me a question, which will be answered in a separate post. Any question. Any question at all.

I reserve the right not to answer. That probably won't happen, but I reserve the right all the same.

This email or things like it go around about once every 3-5 years. This one is entertaining because it talks about how easy things are today by comparing it to about 20-25 years ago. To be honest; things weren't that miserable 30 years ago either. They were different; but I'd still take the creature conveniences of 30 years ago over the lack of conveniences of say... 90 years ago.

So... this is a fun walk down amnesia lane for the 30+ crowd. (I know some of you have already seen it via email and blog)


When I was a kid, adults used to bore me to tears
with their tedious diatribes about how hard things were
when they were growing up; what with walking
twenty-five miles to school every morning ... uphill BOTH ways

yadda, yadda, yadda

And I remember promising myself that when I grew up,
there was no way in hell I was going to lay
a bunch of crap like that on kids about how hard I had it
and how easy they've got it!
But now that... I'm over the ripe old age of
thirty, I can't help but look around and notice the youth of today.

You've got it so easy! I mean, compared to my
childhood, you live in a damn Utopia!
And I hate to say it but you kids today you
don't know how good you've got it!

I mean, when I was a kid we didn't have The
Internet . If we wanted to know something,
we had to go to the damn library and
look it up ourselves, in the card catalog!!
There was no email!! We had to actually write
somebody a letter .with a pen!
Then you had to walk all the way across the street and
put it in the mailbox and it would take like a week to get there!

There were no MP3's or Napsters! You wanted to
steal music, you had to hitchhike to the damn record store and shoplift it yourself!
Or you had to wait around all day to tape it off the radio and the DJ'd usually talk over the
beginning and @#*% it all up!
We didn't have fancy crap like Call Waiting! If you
were on the phone and somebody else called they got a busy signal, that's it!

And we didn't have fancy Caller ID Boxes either!
When the phone rang, you had no idea who it was!
It could be your school, your mom, your boss, your bookie, your drug dealer,
a collections agent, you just didn't know!!!
You had to pick it up and take your chances, mister!

We didn't have any fancy Sony Playstation video games with high-resolution 3-D graphics!
We had the Atari 2600!
With games like 'Space Invaders' and 'asteroids'. Your guy was a little square!
You actually had to use your imagination! !
And there were no multiple levels or screens, it was just one screen forever!

And you could never win.
The game just kept getting harder and harder and faster and faster until you died!
Just like LIFE!

When you went to the movie theater there no such thing as stadium seating!
All the seats were the same height!
If a tall guy or some old broad with a hat sat in front of you and you couldn't see,
you were just screwed!

Sure, we had cable television, but back then that
was only like 15 channels
and there was no on screen menu and no remote control!
You had to use a little book called a TV Guide to find out what was on!
You were screwed when it came to channel surfing!
You had to get off your ass and walk over to the TV to change the
channel and there was no Cartoon Network either! You could only get cartoons
on Saturday Morning. Do you hear what I'm saying!?!
We had to wait ALL WEEK for cartoons, you spoiled little rat-bastards!

And we didn't have microwaves, if we wanted to heat
something up we had to use the stove or go build a frigging fire .. imagine that!
If we wanted popcorn, we had to use that stupid Jiffy Pop thing
and shake it over the stove forever like an idiot.

That's exactly what I'm talking about!
You kids today have got it too easy.
You're spoiled.
You guys wouldn't have lasted five minutes back in 1980!

This is something neat I saw in [livejournal.com profile] faerievixen2's journal. So I figured I'd give it a whirl.

As I'm effectively bedside without much beyond really kitchy Anime. (Bonus points if anyone can guess which) {Freeple house members who currently know are not eligible}

So here's the meme:

Everyone has things they blog about. Everyone has things they don't blog about. Challenge me out of my comfort zone by telling me something I don't blog about, but you'd like to hear about, and I'll write a post about it. Ask for anything: latest movie watched, last book read, political leanings, thoughts on yaoi, favorite type of underwear, graphic techniques, etc. Repost in your own journal so that we can all learn more about each other!
