bustedsneakers: Pencil sketch of hand (Default)

Friends only, comment to be added.

Hello, world!

I'm more or less like everyone else you know, except perhaps I draw more. I love working with my hands and metal parts fabrication, the most recent of which was carving out a new crank for my very old bicycle. This is my private blog. My public blog is available at http://www.talesofaneoluddite.net, where you can also track projects and illustration work I have in the pipe. That's where Finished Articles go. This here is where Unfinished Articles and Personal Angst go. It's what Livejournal is for.

If I've met you Out And About and you're on livejournal, or I internet-flashed you while compromised and gave you all my contact information, please feel free to comment on this entry and I'll probably add you back. I privatized my diary after realizing people could read my mean and hugely personal book reviews, and also that I hadn't written them about dead people after all. It was all very embarrassing, mostly for me, so yes.

Comment to be added. This post gives you an idea of what reading the diary will be like.

Hee. If you're _already_ added this is perfectly okay. I just thought that, since I'd successfully privatized everything in my journal up to this year, I should perhaps give people an "in."

Hey Alex. I enjoy reading your journal! I'm usually playing "catch-up" alot on LJ these days but I do read.

Your angst on Toronto life was interesting a few months ago and I'm inclined to certainly agree on 90% of what you said there.

We've met at a few parties and swap thingees. I am one of those strange and dysfuntional art school persons steamrolled by convention.

Maybe you relate. I'm not sure.

Hi rspryte - yeah, I remember you, and you're totes added. This is just a housekeeping post; if you've been able to read already, no worries. I'm not the deleting people type.

Hiya, thanks! But do I actually know you/have I met you in Real Life/Did I internet flash you that time with the tequila or other substance? I'm just checking, I'll add you back anyway, but you're the first New Person here.

I'm pretty sure I don't know you in real life; in actuality I'm not sure how I found you-might've been the book reviews.
But thanks for the friendback.

Aha! Yes, verily the reason I privatized everything to begin with. Hint: writing small-pond reviews? Always a ghastly plan for privacy.

Despite my lack of LJ action these days, I think this is sorta essential.

Given that Amanda so blatantly pointed us out as being her only two Toronto Steampunk Society friends on LJ, I thought I should ask if I'm supposed to know you? :P

I'm Brent, if the name rings famililar!

Hallllloooo -- I'm Rose White, met you at Notacon, don't really post on LJ much but do read and comment on it lots. I've got an account on dreamwidth under "yarnivore" that I haven't started using except for reading there either, but I'm *more* likely to use it. Or some other blog. Cheers!
