Epic Shit On The Internet

Inaugural Post

Welcome to the sister community of our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1609208522720053/

If you've been missing LJ, and want to do something instead of just complaining about it on Facebook, we're here and we're doing something about it.

Consider this community an ongoing Friending Frenzy™ -- here you will find active LJers who want new friends and are going to fill up your friends feed with actual entries of substance and not just angry political memes and pictures of cats.

Only one rule - be nice or be gone. Anyone stirring shit will be made to lick the spoon.


Name: Regis
Age: 38 
Location: Outcrop, PA

Describe yourself in five sentences or less:   I am a kid trapped in a 38 year old gay man's body. Bing bipolar doesn't help. I live with my Dad and it has it's ups and downs. Then there is my Family I speak about but rarely see because I seem to be the black sheep of my family.

Top 5 fandoms:  Star Wars, Friday the 13th, yaoi, Marvel Comic Movie Universe and A Nightmare on Elm Street

My last three LJ posts were about: Hot Guys and Rambling nonsense about my life... so far.

How often do you post? Almost every day

How about commenting? I try my best...

A GIF to describe how your day has been today so far:
Firefly - hope


Name: Zhelana - I mean, I have a legal name and all, but even my real life friends call me Zhelana. Only my parents and husband call me Danielle - although some call me Dani, mostly at Temple.

Age: 35

Location: Atlanta

Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: I have a goodreads and facebook and IG and twitter. I'm happy to share them if we become friends.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I am a fat, disabled, bisexual, uncomfortable female who doesn't really feel male either, and who is happily married with two dogs and two cats, but no children. I write, volunteer at Georgia Aquarium, volunteer reading to a 2nd grader, am in the SCA, take walks while playing Pokemon Go, golf, swim, write pysanky (google it - it's awesome!), and still shoot black and white film, which I develop myself in a darkroom downtown. I have a masters degree in Latin American history, but I failed to get a phd because I failed my foreign language exam. I am a Jew by choice, and am currently studying for my bat mitzvah. I am the author of that December meme that goes around every year - the 31 day one that starts "a photo of yourself taken this year."

Top 5 fandoms: I still actively write for seaQuest DSV. Also love Firefly, Star Trek, Star Wars. The final spot should probably go to sports (football, hockey, soccer, baseball, olympics), but I'm not in fandom for that inasmuch as I don't like RPF and won't write it (except for occasionally doing mean things to Donald Trump in seaQuest fanfics!)

I mostly post about... Day to day life, then I have a series of weekly posts I make including Music Monday, Crafting Tuesday, What are you reading Wednesday, an A-to-Z challenge, and questions from the book If: Questions for the Game of Life.

My last three LJ posts were about...My earliest memory, a rambly post about my vet not calling me back, postseason hockey, writing, my dogs being sick or hurt, I ran out of all my meds and can't get more until the 24th, but weirdly I feel better so I'm wondering how much I need them, and the fact that Saturday is the 30th anniversary of my grandfather's death, so I'll be going to temple to remember him. and a post about how I almost became a marine biologist but failed chemistry so I had to change my major.

Don't add me if: You think people on disability are just lazy.

How often do you post? How about commenting?: I post every day, sometimes multiple times a day. I comment when I have something to say. I do read every day, at least once a day, and usually multiple times.

A GIF to describe how your day was yesterday:

about me: 1
past usernames: 2

Posts: my journal is semi-private / locked because of personal posts. in the past, i've talked about my mental illness, gender identity, poems i've written, and relationships. i also have tumblr dumps, music, and the occasional drop of screenshots regarding whatever 90s anime has caught my interest at the moment.

i'm more liable to comment on other people's posts than to expect them to comment on mine, as long as i have something substantial to say. i don't post as often as i used to but i still read my friends list. if you want to add me, comment here or send a private message ♥

Name: i respond by the name of møn

Gender: i don't really care (although it's funny when people are really convinced i'm a guy)

Age: 18

Location: Argentina

Personality Type: INFP

Pets: cute little turtle

Sexual Orientation: i don't like to be weighed down by a tag... so i'm not lesbian, not bi, not pan; but i do like girls

Music: post-punk pop-punk, emo, metalcore, hardcore, alternative, industrial metal, 2000's music

Season: always been summer but now i've grown and i think i'm more of a hey-it's-winter-we-should-cuddle type of person?

Interests: i like the smell before rain. friends who make me laugh my head off but know how to hold deep conversations. coffee, music, art. i like poetry and constellations. i like ties and plaid skirts. i like destroying things. i like to think. i like metaphors. i like to speak in prose.

Food: anything mom cooks... and peanut butter

You Can Also Find Me On: i post my comics and drawings at https://www.facebook.com/mondraws and https://another-reject.deviantart.com

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: i'm stuck in 2007. my whole life is an embarrassing middle school emo phase. i hate the way i write or draw. i love the way i write or draw. i'm a hopeless romantic.

Top 5 fandoms: well, for starters, five is just too much for me. i'm only part of the mcrmy. and, y'know, i still read a lot of fan fiction (sorry!). also, huge fan of blink-182 and all-time fan of the all-american rejects.


I mostly post about: my thoughts and philosophies, and a little bit of angsty teenager prose here and there.

My last three LJ posts were about: prose and thoughts i was having while struggling with senior year.

How often do you post? about once a month. depends on how clear the noise in my head is.

How about commenting? i don't tend to comment because first of all, i don't have any LJ friends. second of all, when i have intentions of commenting, the post is about five years old so i don't bother. but i will comment if the post is interesting and recent.

Don't add me if: you're racist, homophobic, xenophobic, and anything that ends with phobic (okay, arachnophobics are acceptable). also, don't bother adding if you leave nasty comments ew.

(add me if you're a part of the mcrmy)
wings, smoking, brian molko, placebo, angel

New pals come at me!

NAME: Quinn/Felix
GENDER: Trans + genderfluid
AGE: 24
LOCATION: Melbourne, Australia
EDUCATION: Currently studying my Bachelor of Creative Arts in Film and TV
OCCUPATION: Filmmaker/masseuse
PETS: Molly and Glossy, two ancient cats
YOU CAN ALSO FIND ME ON: I have an instagram for my glitch art/VJ stuff, it's @fuckinghellfelix

BOOKS: Oh god. Right now I'm reading Laurie Penny's Unspeakable Things and it's blowing my mind so that's definitely up there. The Holy Machine by chris Beckett. The Harry Potter Series, even though I've never read them all the way through. Let the Right One In but that Swedish author with a long name. I dunno, I'm getting back into reading so I'm still figuring out what makes it to the top of my "most read" list.
FOOD(S): Cheesecake. Chocolate. Miso soup. Bibimbap. Cheese. Most sweets. Most baked things. Anything with sweet potato. Taco Tuesday at the Revenence Hotel in my town.
INTEREST(S): VJing, cyberpunk, artificial intelligence, anarcha-feminism, asking questions, making art, exploring new ideas.
MUSIC: I used to be the kind of person who totally defines themselves by their taste in music, but these days it's mostly just a grab-bag of weird shit. I like breakcore, trip-hop, noise, electro-punk, anything with cool synthesisers, riot grrrl, John Murphy, the Birthday Massacre, crazy shit like Die Antwoord and Little Big, southern gothic, a lot of female country artists from Dolly Parton to the Dixie Chicks. Lots of miscellaneous shit.
SEASON: Oh god don't make me choose. I think spring would have to be my favourite, all the flowers and the rain and it's not sticky and gross and hot yet.

I POST: Irregularly but with great enthusiasm.
I POST ABOUT: My life, things I've been thinking about, deconstructing ideas and stuff I've been taught, mental illness, movies, music festivals, all the weird shit that I do on a daily basis.
I COMMENT: When I feel like I have something to contribute. Honestly, I'd like to comment a lot more than I do, but I have so much to say I can never get it all down. I often start to write something, decide I wanna think about it for a while, then forget about it completely.
I LIKE FRIENDS WHO: Write about ideas, feelings, experiences, use their writing to explore themselves as a person and connect on a deeper level.
THE LAST 3 POSTS I MADE WERE ABOUT: My continuing battle to figure out how much impact I want social media to have on my life, changing my name vs using a stage name, a dude I'm lovesick over.
DON'T ADD ME IF: You're a neo-nazi, don't believe non-binary genders are real, don't like a lot of swearing, or are just generally uninteresting.

A GIF TO DESCRIBE HOW YOUR DAY HAS BEEN TODAY SO FAR: Ugh please no more gifs. Buzzfeed has ruined them for me.

I just realized I never posted

Name: Under flock.

Age: 31.

Location: Central Maryland, US.

Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: I'm authorbynight on tumblr, but I've posted twice in a span of one or two years. You can add me on DW, though! I go by this username there.

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I often lament that I'm too nerdy for the real world, but not geeky enough for the internet. I love writing, and much of my LJ use is about improving it as much as anything else. I'm passionate about many things but also believe in listening to what other people have to say. I'm an old soul, yet young at heart at the same time.

Top 5 fandoms: Harry Potter, Parks and Recreation, Buffyverse, Firefly, and um.... that's pretty much it? I guess you could throw in the Fantastic Beasts movie as a subset of Harry Potter.

I mostly post about... Meta/discussion posts and reviews, snark about various things, social commentary and musings, social media commentary and musings (including my blog-within-a-blog), writing. I talk about my family and work a bit, too. But I'm not a huge day-to-day person.

My last three LJ posts were about... My thoughts on education (mostly unrelated to recent events in the US, although I did acknowledge the timing), a poem and how I don't actually know how to write poetry, and asking if anyone knows how to make a Parks and Rec fanvid.

How often do you post? How about commenting? I post a few times a week. Depending on the week, sometimes daily. As far as commenting goes, I can't say I've ever taken a tally, but I try to comment. I WILL say that I'm not so good at commenting on day-to-day bullet posts. I don't mind them, I just don't know what to say to them. My comments ARE often longer, though. Just as a warning.

Name: Miriam

Age: Somewhere between 50 and death

Location: Northern Virginia

Tumblr/Goodreads/IG/etc: I use facebook, but limit my friends list to people with whom I have an actual, usually real-life, connection. I’m also on ravelry and flyertalk and some other less public places.

Snapchat: No

Describe yourself in five sentences or less: I am alpha technodiva in a group that deals with satellites. I spend my spare time on storytelling and assorted fiber crafts (e.g. knitting, crocheting, nalbinding). I also travel and go to the theatre and inflict atrocious puns on anyone who will sit still long enough to listen.

Top 5 fandoms: I am an ardent Red Sox fan, who refers to the New York Yankees as the source of all evil in the universe. The only TV show I was ever much of a fangirl about was Buffy the Vampire Slayer. I am also hopelessly geeky about musicals.

I mostly post about... travel, genealogy, theatre, snacks

My last three LJ posts were about... 1) A trip to New York, following a business trip to the West Coast, 2) A graze snack box, 3) my vacation in Nicaragua

How often do you post? How about commenting? I post roughly once or twice a week. I comment when I have something to say.

A GIF to describe how your day has been today so far: I don’t care for GIFs.
