Tube travel times database [07 Jan 2006|03:00am]


I'm going to guess this will be useful for pretty much everyone on here, but I just created a new website. The idea is you time how long it takes to go from station to station, put it into the website's database, and then it gives you average, minimum and maximum travel times between any two stations from everyone who's contributed. Works for the DLR too. What I need though is for people to start entering travel times. How long does it take to get from home to work? The website is at http://chronomap.net/, could people from here come help me with it, put in your favourite journeys etc? I would really appreciate that, thanks.

New Jack's Mannequin Tunes

Yes, a newbie [06 Mar 2005|10:13pm]
Hrm.. I'm not really sure what to say other than I just joined. I first heard about Neil Gaiman and his books while searching a walkthrough to a game (I got stuck, I don't cheat =P The walkthrough was for Tomb Raider 3, specifically). I searched google for the book and read the summary and it sounded good to me. I reserved it at the library, but had to wait four weeks to get a copy of my own. While I waited, I checked out a Sandman comic (I don't remember which one, I apologize.) and Stardust, both of which were wonderful to read. I finally got Neverwhere and was blown away. It's definately on my "read-once-per-year" list. I checked several used book shops in Colorado Springs and downtown Manitou, but, alas, no one had one. I moved out to Salt Lake City and finally found a copy. I plan on reading it again very soon, and right when I get around to getting a library card, I will be getting more of his books to fill my time with.

Right then. So that's me. I'm not sure how often I'll post, but it's definately an honor to be here and I'll comment on others' posts. =)

I'm Jolene.

Reflective writer...former tortured soul...old school gothette...

When I was 17 I began to write my favorite rockstar about my dysfunctional home life and general reflections. He saved these letters for me for 9 years then returned them perfectly preserved and now...I find myself with an unintentional memoir of the late 80's.

My experience was pretty dark... The content involves abuse, self-injury, drug experimentation and just plain lonliness. I have a website for my proposed novel where you can find excerpts, artwork and photographs.

I'm always seeking feedback.

When a girl with long dark hair has red cheeks (through no fault of her own-- exercising too long, perhaps), you want to think that they are fruit extended from the relative white of her neck. She is shaped like a supple stem with firm flesh. Bite and it gives at first, with slight resistance as the skin seperates from the pulp. It's texture is the exterior of mochi ice cream, though hot and musky. The ice cream has melted into sap. Green eyes float up from the delicacy, contrast incarnate--the colour so vibrant, a swelling shell of the seeds that gleam phenomenally.

For a long moment I stared.

Then the bud broke open, cracking leagues of sea and open shells of suns, bleeding aurulentities.

One realizes that the only drop of undiluted expression can stain the streams of communication.

Cold pale stones await my feet; sound follows where I go.

The King of Elfland's Daughter by Lord Dunsany [19 Oct 2003|10:29am]

I haven't done this in awhile b/c the mover's packed my book and I just found it now, so I'll put the last set of quotes up .

"Then like the noise of some city heard amongst birds in woods, like a sob heard amongst children that are all met to rejoice, like laughter amongst a company that weep, like a shrill wind in orchards amongst the early blossom, like a wolf coming over the downs where the sheep are asleep..."

"When Lirazel blew away with the splendid leaves they dropped one by one from their dance in the gleaming air, and ran on over fields for a while, and then gathered by hedgerows and rested..."

"..for she saw more in Alveric's eyes than any questions of hers would have drawn from his tongue."

"And now he had dropped his head till his beard lay mingled with his cape of ermine above his cerulean cloak, and stood there silently sorrowful, while time passed swift as ever over the fields we know."

"What was joy for if it must be hidden?"

"..a song of such memories as lurk and hide along the edges of oblivion, now flashing from beautiful years of glimpse of some golden moment, now passing swiftly out of rememberance again, to go back to the shades of oblivion, and leaving on the mind those faintest traces of little shining feet which when dimly perceived by us are called regrets."

Turn back before it's too late... [15 Oct 2003|07:31pm]

In 1986, a fantasy film named Labyrinth was created by the Jim Henson Company, starring David Bowie and Jennifer Connelly as the two human actors in a magical world peopled by strange and wonderful creatures created by the Jim Henson Creature Shop.
Based on the Fighting Fantasy series of books created by Steve Jackson and Ian Livingston, I have created a role-play game in which you take on the role of Sarah, the film's heroine, and you have to traverse the Labyrinth from start to finish in order to rescue your baby brother Toby from Jareth, the Goblin King! Fight fireys, dance with Jareth, and decide whether you want to accept the Goblin King’s ultimate offer: “Just fear me, love me, do as I say and I will be your slave!”
But, beware! The route you take will not be identical to the route that Sarah took in the film, and there are pitfalls and red herrings all along the way. Before you begin please make a note of the time you start, the number of times you fail, and the time you finish, as it will be used to determine whether you have achieved a High Score once you have completed the Labyrinth.
Can you defeat the Goblin King?
>Can you defeat the Goblin King?</a>

I wanted to introduce myself. I'm a Goth Girl from Maryland. I was introduced to Neil Gaiman this March. I've read American Gods and Coraline, and am reading through The Sandman books.

Are there any folks from the East Coast on here? Or thereabouts? Feel free to check out my LJ or IM me. I would love to discuss anything Gaiman-ish. :-)

this lullaby [09 Jul 2003|09:31pm]

[ mood | calm ]

So I finished the book already... it's so good, I couldn't even put it down and actually got maybe a little teary-eyed at the end. It's about this girl who is so against love that nothing could ever change her mind, except one certain boy who is her complete opposite. As they always are. Makes you think a lot, made me think way too much... it's a definate read.
