filters [Jan. 1st, 2015|08:56 pm]

Hello! Welcome to my private journal.

I run several filters and this is your place to tell me which ones you are interested in.  Asking doesn't guarantee you'll get it, I do have veto power, but it increases the odds. So, post a reply to this letting me know.  I have the posts locked so you can do so in complete privacy. 

I promise no sad feelings if you don't want to be on certain filters, or any filters at all.  The non filtered posts tend to be my more positive ones about subjects I'm comfortable talking about in a con hospitality suite/housefilk/met on a bus/etc.

Without further ado:

Family: This isn't the easiest filter to get on, as it has the most personal stuff going on in my life.  This has the most depressing stuff and the bad stuff about raising an Oppositional Defiant Child. You have been warned.

Work:  This gets my Yay!'s and rants about being in business for myself as a massage therapist.  Not really negative or positive, just my work life.

Filk:  All my posts about me and raishaan 's adventure making music.

writers:  ANNOUNCEMENT: In the process of learning this writing thing and listenting to good advice my current writing posts are now found at slweippert .  You may still ask to be on the writing filter if you are interested in the old posts. :)  All my posts about my terrifying/awesome adventure writing a great story and getting it published by a real old fashioned publishing house.  This is where my volunteer readers are, but you don't have to be one, just interested in reading.  One requirement that is not negotiable: while you can tell me something I wrote is crap you must tell me why it's crap, in detail. No exceptions, sorry.

That's it! Glad you came :D

Wayword rising from the wet soggy ashes! [Dec. 9th, 2010|10:10 pm]
Originally posted by tfabris at Rising from the wet soggy ashes!
When Vixy & Tony first started making music together, we didn't plan on our music having an impact outside of Filk circles. Then someone told us about a nearby coffee house owned by a Browncoat which hosted live music events. We were invited to play at one of their shindigs, met all sorts of wonderful people, and a tradition was born. Since then we've done many packed-house shows there, and it feels like home each time we do. We learned that it's more than just a coffee house and music venue, its a special place, a meeting place for geeks of all stripes, a headquarters for the Seattle Browncoats, and a warm sanctuary full of friends. We love Wayward Coffeehouse and everything they stand for.

They're currently shut down due to damage resulting from a nextdoor fire and its extinguishing efforts. They're a small independent business, trying to get their place fixed up and reopened. And each day that the laborious process with the insurance companies, the building owners, and the repair contractors drags on, they're losing money. So we're here to help!

We're having a house concert at House Cerulia on Sunday, December 19th at 6pm, with all proceeds going to the Wayward Phoenix Fund! We'll do an evening of great music, pass the hat, and hopefully have other cool stuff going on. We will be joined by our amazing String Section, and you all know how awesome things get when that happens.

Please RSVP to ceruliahouse@gmail.com so they can get a count of how many people are coming! And if you can't come, please donate to the Wayward Phoenix Fund directly!

See you all there!

I Am A: Lawful Neutral Elf Wizard (5th Level)

Ability Scores:







Lawful Neutral A lawful neutral character acts as law, tradition, or a personal code directs him. Order and organization are paramount to him. He may believe in personal order and live by a code or standard, or he may believe in order for all and favor a strong, organized government. Lawful neutral is the best alignment you can be because it means you are reliable and honorable without being a zealot. However, lawful neutral can be a dangerous alignment because it seeks to eliminate all freedom, choice, and diversity in society.

Elves are known for their poetry, song, and magical arts, but when danger threatens they show great skill with weapons and strategy. Elves can live to be over 700 years old and, by human standards, are slow to make friends and enemies, and even slower to forget them. Elves are slim and stand 4.5 to 5.5 feet tall. They have no facial or body hair, prefer comfortable clothes, and possess unearthly grace. Many others races find them hauntingly beautiful.

Wizards are arcane spellcasters who depend on intensive study to create their magic. To wizards, magic is not a talent but a difficult, rewarding art. When they are prepared for battle, wizards can use their spells to devastating effect. When caught by surprise, they are vulnerable. The wizard's strength is her spells, everything else is secondary. She learns new spells as she experiments and grows in experience, and she can also learn them from other wizards. In addition, over time a wizard learns to manipulate her spells so they go farther, work better, or are improved in some other way. A wizard can call a familiar- a small, magical, animal companion that serves her. With a high Intelligence, wizards are capable of casting very high levels of spells.

SIGNAL BOOST [Jul. 21st, 2010|03:04 pm]
[mood |thankfulthankful]

The Westboro Baptist Church plans to protest outside the San Diego Comic Con.

Should any of you not remember who these douche-bags are, they protest at military funerals for soldiers who were killed in the middle east. :(

But! There is something we can do to spit in the hate-mongers eyes!  Their protest will be used to raise money for charity, AND a nice thank you card will be sent to them thanking them for the help raising the money. :)

Yes, there is something good that can come from this. Thank you to those running the phelps-a-thon. You turn hate/fear into something good.

Because this info needs to get out.

A witness to what's going on in the Gulf of Mexico gives here report.

BP is trying to airbrush over just how bad it is, and it pisses me off.

very, very interesting... [May. 8th, 2010|10:10 pm]

National Journal Magazine has an article entitled "Do 'Family Values' Weaken Families"

The paradox is this: Cultural conservatives revel in condemning the loose moral values and louche lifestyles of "San Francisco liberals." But if you want to find two-parent families with stable marriages and coddled kids, your best bet is to bypass Sarah Palin country and go to Nancy Pelosi territory: the liberal, bicoastal, predominantly Democratic places that cultural conservatives love to hate."

Some of the conclusions seem a bit simplistic IMHO, so I'm not sure if this is true, but it is an thought provoking idea.
