is everybody here still alive?
i thought of reposting pictures here, but what's the point when it's already on everyone's page from my post.
also thinking of making a movie community, but what's the point when this one is pretty much failed and i don't have much time to spend on lj to begin with?
maybe we should just talk about movies here.

i just rented eight below and the new world.
eight below is for my mother, but i think i'll love it.
i've heard that the new world has great cinematography, but the story/whole thing is just too slow, drawn out and boring.

in theaters... i saw pirates two, and wasn't that thrilled.
i can't think of any other new-ish movies i've seen lately.
except junebug, but i doubt anyone here watched that.

how about you?

has anyone seen or heard of down in the valley? it look so fucking amazing, but i missed it when it was in theaters.
marie antoniette is another one that looks really, really good.
i want to be sophie coppolla or however it's spelled.
without the famous father, of course.
(i cannot stand when people get into a business just because they have connections--not because of talent. although, she is talented.)

it's been raining for days and i feel like the sky
drowning in tears that i keep inside
i feel worn out and i cannot decide
if i can keep my heart from the next big mudslide
slipping and sliding out of my reach
my love passes by on the street
spinning down the gutter and into the drain
my heart is getting carried away with all this rain

remember when we were young
all that mattered was having fun
hanging out in the park
playing on the porch after dark
no secrets to keep, nothing to hide
no reason to ever wave goodbye
now i never know what to expect
not even when i'll see you next
sometimes i wonder, do you remember my name?
or was this friendship only a game?
the time has come and the time has past
here we are, seperate at last

3:16 pm - stuff!

Not sure if this is the community to ask but...

For awhile, I've been eager to learn knitting and hemp jewelry making. I know a few people who know how to do both, but they usually don't have time to teach me. Would you guys happen to know any good manuels on knitting and/or hemp jewelry making? Or do you guys think it's better for someone to teach me than to read up on it in a book? Or maybe I need to buy a little kit or something that might provide directions? I know, this is weird and may be kind of stupid but I'm really curious.

Heh, yeah.

Also, any duct tape fans here? I'm interested in learning the art of duct tape and maybe making some wallets or bags or even a dress!

one more thing, before i go to bed finally--

as you know, you don't have to go far to find ways to help out with the katrina disaster. i'm picky about things though, even my charity. what does money do? you need to give your heart and body and mind and soul (and blah and blah, i know, i'm crazy)

the de humane society is sponsoring a program that lets you adopt pets from the hurricane, until they can be reunited with their families. i think this is wonderful. i can't do it, unfortunately, but i encourage you guys to spread the word and help find homes that can.

any other ways to help, besides the obvious donations, feel free to post.
the importance of community is underrated.

tell me a story (post not reply).

would you rather i go first?Read more...Collapse )

you all know me, but you could at least introduce yourselves to each other or something.
ya know.
the ones who haven't said anything yet.
if you really don't care, you could at least humor me. do me this one favor. give me something to smile at, cause lord knows i need it.

1:01 am - For my First Love

Portraits and childhood tales,
dedications to women and paintings of sacramental men
pasted on a translucent wall.
I see God and I praise him:
"Thank you Almighty and Invisible One
for providing me someone with soft caressing hands that will
hold my withering face 'til the stars burn out in the fabric sky!"
God didn't give me a response,
so I ran to the ocean with my delicate lover.
We made sweet, salty love and drowned within each other.
His hands were open, and his eyes--
a deep, sincere blue.

current mood: tired

looking for you in everyone i meet
you with eyes that reveal not reflect
sun in your hair moon on your lips
stars dancing all around you
you with half of me hidden in your soul

so who else thinks nature is the best thing in this entire modern world?

i wish i could sleep with butterflies every night and swim with fish every day.

nature always make me want to reconsider my future (live hours away from anywhere writing and making beautiful things using the land until i die).

[100 percent benefits Hurricane Katrina relief]

i should have updated in here sooner, but i've been more scattered than ever lately. a hundred things demanding my immediate attention and not enough time in the day.

11:16 am - A poem about farmers

I want to be a farmer and live off the land
I want to be a farmer and work with my hands
I want to have a sweet cow and milk her every morn'
I want to have a sturdy horse and feed him oats and corn
Oh, to be a farmer, to wake with the dawn
Oh, to be a farmer, to live in the sun

9:33 pm - Trap Pond, DE


Just a photo I took at Trap Pond during my road trip. I thought the duckweed rocked. I'm sorry onetruegirl for making you see this in my journal and now in your community. I felt I owed a post in this community and I figured I might as well post a recent photo.

how illegal would it be to steal random journal entries? from any place online. the law and the internet are funny things to mix. because one is really new and one is really old and there's too much that goes undefined.
i'm just thinking, how beautiful would it be to organize entries--with permission, without permission, with names, anonymously, any way that works--into a book? it could have been done, because most things have been done before, but i don't know anything before. maybe i should look into it. can you imagine transferring online journals to a book? it would be so diverse. it would be so amazing. find out exactly what eight million different people were thinking or doing on the same exact day, same exact time. like oct 10th at 10:10. haha.

and plus, you could literally take the internet with you anywhere. in the bathtub. to the park. how's that for reality? who needs tv.

see, if i were a millionaire......
amazing things would happen.

i mean...well...if every identity were hidden, then how could i be doing anything illegal? (assuming i ever took action.) i guess it would be a matter with the company--lj, xanga, myspace, whatever. i would probably only need their permission. and probably never get it. unless i had lots and lots of money to give them in return.

so i encourage all of you, whenever you read this, to find and print a couple fairly long, possibly deep entries written by people you don't know. random users or more recent updated. or people with similar interests. friends of friends. just click on some names and see what you get.

i really like the idea of having entries written on the same day and time brought together.

i think it's way past my bed time.

comments always appreciated.

sorry for the random burst of posts... I just figured that if I started to post some stuff, maybe other people would too.

the two ones I did of my friends were done from photographs fairly recently. The one of Kathy Hilton was sort of an experiment... I don't admire Kathy Hilton or anything, she was just the picture I happened to choose.

The poem I wrote is just a crap poem that I wrote today.

as you can see, I like drawing ^_^

I'm afraid to talk to you
because I'm afraid I'll have nothing to say
I'm afraid to talk to you
because I'm afraid I'll have too much to say
I'm afraid to look at you
because I'm afraid you'll see me looking
I'm afraid to look at you
because I'm afraid you won't be looking back
I'm afraid to touch you
because I'm afraid you'll pull away
I'm afraid to touch you
because I'm afraid you'll touch me back
I'm afraid to know you
because I'm afraid I'll love you
I'm afraid to love you
because I'm afraid I'll lose you.
