FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

J.C. Thompson Aims to Benefit New Orleans Artists with Print-on-Demand Availability of "Distance Til Empty: Volume VI" at Lulu.com

ATLANTA, GA —JANUARY 20, 2007— J.C. Thompson aims to benefit New Orleans Artists with the publication of Distance Til Empty: Volume VI in conjunction with Lulu (www.lulu.com), the world’s fastest-growing provider of print-on-demand books.

Distance Til Empty: Volume VI is a collection of photographs taken in and around New Orleans, Louisiana.

J.C. Thompson wrote Distance Til Empty: Volume VI to assist in the restoration of the lifestyle and works of photographers, illustrators, and all visual artists living in the flood damaged regions of New Orleans. He came to Lulu because she wanted to be in full editorial control of the publishing process and found Lulu’s print-on-demand tools to be fast, easy and, most importantly, free; allowing the ability to have as much of the proceeds as possible go to the assistance of those he's working to help, with as little third-party interference as possible. Distance Til Empty: Volume VI is available for purchase on-line at www.lulu.com.

“During frequent visits to New Orleans before and after Hurricane Katrina, I was always spellbound by the art of the city.” said J.C. Thompson. “I realised after being inspired by NOLA for so long, I felt I needed to give something back, especially to the overlooked art scene that thrives in the streets there, even to this day."

Open Mic made with the joy again. Hurray! When more coherent, perhaps you'll get a post out of me.

In the meantime... I have a smallish favor to ask. I need "bits" of things. Some of you know what's up, the rest will get pictures eventually. But here's what I am looking for: buttons, beads, charms, bottle caps (preferably metal), bits of string, yarn, wire, or ribbon, safety pins, scrap fabric, loose keys, bits of metal (washers, nuts, odd bits), mardi gras beads, tinsel, paper clips, pushpins, left over craft supplies, glitter, sequins, and anything either bright, shiny or both. Said things can be returned to you if you wish, but please let me know in advance so I can catalogue what I've borrowed. I just need them for a couple weeks for a project I am working on.

It would be helpful to get things from some of you over the weekend, or at Open Mic next week. Thanks!!

See, this is what happens when I am online early. I noticed a strange similarity between a Henson character and a Whedon character. Is it just me?Collapse )

Because I can't be the only one to think this is funny, I had to post about it. I just received a piece of spam the email kind:Collapse )

Heard any good/bad rumors about me lately? Want to know the truth? Please leave a comment with what you've heard and I will respond in kind to each one.

No limits here, speak yer mind. Or rather, say what you've heard.


If you feel brave, or don't care. Go ahead and then post this in your LJ and see what happens.

EDIT: I liked dayglodivine's idea for this. Allowing comments from people who aren't friendlisted. But I am not screening. All absurdity will be dealt with.

Alright, kiddies, you know the rules. One question, you interpret it, show your work, yada, yada, yada.

Here we go:

Why do you put up with me doing that?

Yeah, feeling that way. Go on, now. Get to it!

Something about this really upsets me - Walter Reed AMC on closure list. It's the end of an era.

It's too early and I am in a rush. I will probably have more to say about this later.

Okay, I started this forever and eight days ago, back when my buddy list was, like, twenty people. Let's see what I can make of it now, with nearly a hundred.

Here're the rules:
I ask a question. You answer it. Simple, yeah?
The catch is... you interpret what the question means. It's gonna be generic, vague, general, and sometimes really random. Answer it with the first thing that comes to mind, the last thing that comes to mind, hell, anything that comes to mind. Show your work, kiddies. I wanna know how you got where you got!

So the question is:
Why'd you do that?


C'mon, you can't resist it. And I really want to see some of you wicked clever people out there participating. *nudges chaosvizier, city_of_dis, djkangal and wordmaster73*

that there are some people that have added me to their friend's list, and I have no idea who they are. If you are seeing this and didn't see my last post (the one about PLOJXXXIII), then chances are I haven't got a clue in hell who you are.

Mind giving me an intro? Who are you, have we met, how'd you come across me?

Thanks and much love,
The Dragonfly

At some point I really will update with something of substance. Suffice it to say that depression has kicked in despite all the good in my life. Luckily I have good friends who put up with me unloading at all hours (kjetter and blackpaladin, who put up with my horrible babbling typing on AIM, and Brian, who let me talk his ear off despite other social obligations).

Submitted for you approval:
This lovely little site. And people don't get it!

A measure of lust.

This one begged, as everyone has been posting those random LJ generator posts. You MUST check out the advert on the site. It nearly made me pee.

A different point of view, and some interesting discussion. This one I found very interesting, considering CLSE's work with autistic kids.

And last but not least....
These boots are made for walkin'.


Why, no, I'm not at work. I'm sure there is a good reason for that.

Per the comments posted here, a calendar seems to be in order. Got a date you want innocentxv, me or anyone else to remember? Gimme comments, people. I'll get a calendar together.

Consider it the Freak Family Date Calendar. My blood family has one of these. My aunt keeps track of all the special dates - births, weddings, etc, and sends out a list every so often.

So, gimme the info and I'll get it together.
