And so the day has come.

With the revelation of the New Moon, a new era is dawning on my beloved online journal. As it should be common knowledge amongst people who have long followed my various adventures and rants, I've been in the process of moving operations from LiveJournal to Dreamwidth.

After an extended absence from journaling, I returned to LJ to find portions of it in disrepair, and the climate it once enjoyed denigrated and anaemic.  it's been more than a little depressing to see a once thriving community deteriorate before your eyes, and that is the primary reason why I am leaving.  It's painful to watch, so I have chosen to no longer look.

It would be a lie to say I will not miss LiveJournal, but my remaining here will not bring back the LJ I came to know and love.  That place is long gone, and it's hard to navigate through all the weeds that have overgrown this digital garden.  My departure is long overdue, and so I go.


If you wish to continue reading my ramblings, I have set up housekeeping at Dreamwidth, under the same name, The Cliffs of Insanity.  You can click the title here in the text, or the image below, to be taken there.  If you subscribe to me, I promise to reciprocate!  I look forward to seeing you over on the new Cliffs, and to many more years of interaction, sharing, venting, and being as creative as possible, with my friends and Tribe.

2 + 2 =...

Not that it's been any big secret, but I barely posted in the Cliffs of Insanity this long time past because 2016 was essentially the year I attempted to jump off the Cliffs repeatedly. I've been in therapy...a lot. I've neglected myself, my friends, my responsibilities, and pretty much everything else. It is only until recently that I've found myself looking forward to the days I attend outpatient therapy, rather than trying to figure out a way to graciously bow out.

So, now, thanks to being a Conspiracy Theorist Hipster (i.e. I was a Conspiracy Theorist looooong before Alex Jones ruined shit for everyone), I'm not sure if the therapy is helping, as in I'm feeling better and more like myself, or if it's "helping", as in 2 + 2 = 5 thankyewwwwwblubbberblubberblubberrrr.

That said, before I get into the heavy shit I need to dump on whomever is unfortunate enough to chance upon it, I need to confirm with those who've known me for a while: what do you think? Four is the correct answer to the 2 + 2 question, yes? Or is my mathematics as shitty as ever? I leave it to you.

I am officially migrating from LiveJournal to Dreamwidth. The transition is going to be difficult, but it's past time. If I'm unable to transfer all the massive contents of The Cliffs of Insanity here, I'm going to leave it up in an archive capacity, but I will no longer be posting there, except for the occasional Twitter update, until I discontinue that as well. The Cliffs will have turned 15 years old in June, and I was thinking of making the transition at that time, but I have much to write about and many events to account, so the change must be made sooner rather than later.

Do I need to explain why I need this?

Another beloved cast member from The Princess Bride has passed away. Mel Smith, who played the Albino in the Pit of Despair, has apparently died in his sleep of a heart attack. The Cliffs will miss him…

I've given up trying to download Semagic for Mac OSX. No matter which version I try, or what mirror I use, it just won't work. So here I am trying Phoenix. We'll see how it does…this posting from LJ proper is nerve-wracking, as there's always a chance I'll lose what I've written, and I don't always remember to write in Word first, then copy/paste onto LJ after I'm finished. Hopefully, this will remedy the problem, even though I do still desperately miss my beloved Semagic!

Today marks year 11 for the Cliffs of Insanity. It's hard to believe I've had this journal that long, and it's mind-boggling how many things have changed since June 2002. Of course, it's equally as astounding, the things that have not changed since then.

I'd have to say the one thing I'm thankful for the most when it comes to the Cliffs, is the friendships I have formed with people here. There are some of you to whom I feel closer than my own family. You have helped to restore my semblance of faith in humanity and my ability to trust others. Every one of you is important to me, and a blessing to me every day.

Who knows what the next year holds? Whatever it holds, I intend to make an account of it all here on LJ. The Cliffs of Insanity has been neglected for too long. I miss it, and I miss my friends here on LJ. As I said in the previous post, I'm hoping to be able to write more in the very near future, because I'll actually have things to write about.

Exciting times, they are a-comin'. (or at least I hope)

Now, where's my birthday cake?

Even though I really wasn't to change anything about the Cliffs of Insanity, despite seriously considering it, I did make a few serious changes. In doing so, I learned that LJ can be a total bitch when it comes to editing anything, like posts with certain tags, and tags you want to change the name of, and bloody icons you want to delete, just to name a few things. But I think I got most of it done. I wanted to friends-lock all posts tagged with certain words, because I didn't want to lose the tags, but LJ only gives the option to friends-lock your total journal, or month by month. Time options only. And that sucks. I had to change tags' names and delete the old ones, and that was a horrid task.

In other news, my fellow Batman/Joker fans on here may be happy and very, very shocked to hear that I am feeling much kindlier toward Christian Bale as of today. It's because of the news I read earlier. Check out the snipped, then click for the rest of the article. The dude may actually have decency I just have not seen until now.

British actor Christian Bale fought back tears during an emotional tribute to his late co-star Heath Ledger at the MTV Movie Awards on Sunday.

The star took to the stage at the Los Angeles ceremony along with his Batman co-stars Gary Oldman and Joseph Gordon-Levitt to present footage from their upcoming blockbuster “The Dark Knight Rises.”

I've been going through all the posts (almost 10k) and I'm pernear overwhelmed by the fuckton of public stupidity. The LJ is quite well-named methinks. I've toddled up through the last half of 2008 and, honestly, I'm too freaked out to go any further for now.

Honestly, I can't believe I've kept this blog current for so long. I figured it would only last a few weeks before I lost interest.

Sort of like the only five Tim Roth Tutorials I was going to make.

Things get out of hand. Crap gets said. In public. That which is unleashed cannot be re-chained with complete success.

The Cliffs of Insanity is my Kraken. Someone needs to hold up a gorgon's head and stop the madness.


Although tempted to lock down the whole thing and set fire to the Internet to raze this monstrous creation from existence, I'm gonna trudge onward, but doubtfully upward. Because, apparently, that's how I roll; refusing to learn lessons smacked upside my head.
