14th-Nov-2008 12:44 pm - Goodwill and happytimes!
YULE SEASON IS ALMOST HERE ♥ I've only spent about a year in fandom so far, but the Non-Denominational Celebration Season is a good time as any to express my heartful thanks to all of you people whom I've come to know over the last twelve or so months. ♥

IN THE SPIRIT OF THE SEASON, THEREFORE: goodwill times! I'm a big proponent of sending stuff off to all ends of the earth. Most human beings I know are big proponents of receiving stuff in the mail. ERGO:

all I want for
nondenominationalseason
is ---


If you want to spread joy and receive and/or give back, there's this beautiful meme below. Comment below, or leave a link to your own post, and everyone can LINK BACK AND FORTH FOR GREAT JUSTICE:




STEP ONE
Make a post to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 unlimited holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related to medium to really big. The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

If you wish for real life things, make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa could get in touch with you.

Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ, or link to this post so that the holiday joy will spread.

STEP TWO
Surf around your flist to see who has posted their list. & now here's the important part:

If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

List! )

GO FORTH AND SPREAD AND PIMP. ♥

A few more things here; a lot of books! Same policy as before: I'm just trying to clear shelf-space and spread a little goodwill around. :D Drop a comment to reserve, then drop me an email/AIM with where the thing needs to get mailed. ♥ I ask only for another good deed to get done to someone else. Crossposted to my LJ!

His Dark Materials; couple of D&D hardcover handbooks; anatomy drawing guide. )

[edit:] dug through other things; also: anyone want a half-used pad of Daler-Rowney watercolour paper? My art days are dead; but my stuff shouldn't suffer the same fate. >_>

That said, if anyone can give me the gift of learning how to sleep quickly, aljalfjghnh. All nighters = not fun, so why do you do this to me, body?

Well, maybe not so massive...

There are a couple of fandoms out there that have had a profound impact on me and my lifestyle (eg, how often I sleep; when I sleep; why my fingers are bent at a funny angle from hitting and holding the shift key too often; how I look at people; how I look at myself; which way the world turns); and very often when writing for them or leafing through the material again I am hit by the urge to supplement them with music.

Under the cut are a couple of the fandoms (obscure or not) which have augmented my worldview and triggered massive music trawling over the last few years. :D Sometimes I talk about the fandom, other times I just talk about the music; sometimes I'm lucky enough to be able to blabber on about both.

*points down* And, music aside, if anyone wants a copy of The Left Hand of Darkness, clicky the cut.

The Left Hand of Darkness, Final Fantasy VII, Baccano!, American Gods )

Giving away stuff on my LJ; run over and see if there's anything anyone wants posted out to them.

Yes, I am weird for sending stuff 24280 miles over various continents for free; but people have done me good deeds before and I think I owe a little bit of karma to the universe in general. ♥

Hai, still no one wanting free paid journal time? I srsly, srsly would not like it to go to waste - so if you have a friend or a loved one you'd like to pass IJ journal time on, drop me a comment! I'm that desperate! I'm begging people to take stuff! *laughs*

Not getting enough sleep because the electricity keeps going is a bummer. But listening to Dave Matthews and Tim Reynolds makes everything better.

One of the most amazing songs on earth, probably:

Eh Hee

These tracks were recorded live, and Dave M. was just discussing how he'd gone out and talked with some native Indians, and how he'd listened to them sing and create polyrhythms and music that came "before language" -- and this track blends both the before and the after of language in-- you have to listen to it, honestly. It as religious lyrics - but it's one of those times when you listen and you know that it transcends any sort of religiosity. They performed it at Radio City; most amazing DVD of anything I'd seen in my life - two men, two guitars and one voice.


Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh amana
Eh hee yeah amanaya yeaha yeah eh eh

Praise God who has many names but the Devil have many more
And with the love that my mother gave me I'm gon' drop the Devil to the floor
Im gon' drop the Devil to his knees
Im gon' drop the Devil to his knees

There's always people who'll try to convince you
That they know the answer no matter the question
Be wary of those who believe in a neat little world
Because it's just fucking crazy, you know that it is

...

Seen evolution, my people have come to believe
That we are the traitors, the cheaters
We pray that we're just a collection of cells
We parade with ourselves
And we're proud of avoiding the truth


And another, just because one is never enough: When the World Ends.

When the world ends
We'll be burnin one
When the worlds ends
You know you and me we'll be makin love
Oh yeah know when the world ends
I'm gon' take you aside and say
Let's watch it fade away fade away oh
Cuz the world's done
I've just begun it's done i's just begun
