Folks,
The problem that seems to afflict every work-bound LJ user sooner or later has hit the City of Village Charm: my journal has suddenly become popular viewing at work.
Consequently, I'm going to go off the grid for a little while. I've locked all my previous posts, and when I do start posting again, sometime in the future, it will be friends only. I know there are a number of people out there who read my journal but who don't have livejournals of their own, and that kind of sucks, but that's the way it has to be, at least for the forseeable future.

Courage,
Dan Rather

p.s.
The journal still rages on, but is friends only. If you would like to be added, or if you would like to read the thing I wrote about Lance Hahn, leave a comment.

Tom--

Get on the grid right away! It's easy to make your journal friends only if you've locked all early entries!

I have come to depend on my friends for entertainment nearly as much as I depend on books, music, and movies! YOU HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO ENTERTAIN US, DAMMIT!

Wow--that was meant to be an "earnest plea". Don't leave us, O Villagecharm. Don't leave us!

I'll be posting friends-only soon. I just feel a little unhappy about having to cut people who aren't on LJ or aren't friends off.

Being that I live in the City of Village Charm as well, I would like to enlist your assistance in locating the babbling brook portrayed on the wooden sign at the end of the ramp leading towards Buckland Hills Metropolis. I personally have never seen it and feel that mayhaps it does not exist. Totally nothing to do with your posting, but I felt it somewhat applicable since we both reside in the silk city.

Until your post, it never occurred to me that the aforementioned babbling brook might be real. I always assumed it was a metaphor, as if to say that Manchester helps visitors discover the Brook Within. Off the top of my head, though, I think it might be referring to the broad, majestic Hop River, which can best be glimpsed in all its awesome grandeur on the bridge near the old fire museum, behind the building that was once Needle In a Haystack Books and Mutiny Records. Other than that, I can't think of such a picturesque babbling brook in town. There is a secret waterfall, however.

I'm trying to expand my livejournal resume. It was a pleasure to meet you on Saturday :)

Hope you don't mind...

but I added you as a friend. My name is Sara, and I live in Manchester. One question - half man half biscuit - do you mean the UK band who released "This Leaden Pall"?

I don't mind at all. I've added you back, if that's okay. Based on your interests, you have truly excellent taste in music. I will have to check out the Indie Disco thing you do sometime. Also, I'm floored that you've heard of Half Man Half Biscuit. You are potentially the only other person in this country besides my brother and two friends to know who they are.

Hey there, when I went to look at the list of books you wanted, the post had been erased by LJ. I think I remember most of what you wanted, though.

Heya! I fear this may cause me unnecessary harm, but would you consider adding me to your friends list? Hazmat tells me I should read your posts. I must admit, though, that it seems unfair that I should discover how entertaining you are right before you leave us! Still, I'm willing to face the inevitable anguish this will cause me.

Date: 2006-08-24 01:41 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] villagecharm.livejournal.com
I will try to keep the harm to strictly necessary levels. I have added you, and I hope I live up to hazmat's billing.

I love this current volley you have with [livejournal.com profile] lipbylipby about Hitchens and religion. Could you add me so that I can read your posts?

p.s. Sorry we missed meeting up with you a couple weeks ago.

I'm glad I don't come off like a total douchebag on the Hitchens stuff. I really am a total douchebag.

I've added you as a friend. Sorry I missed you the other day as well; I'm sure we'll meet up at some point.

Uh oh, it looks like I missed the party. I am stuck on bedrest and looking for amusements and
[livejournal.com profile] atthesametime recommended I friend you.

The party here is always going on. Welcome aboard.

And by "party" I mostly mean short posts where I complain about my job. Whoo!

looks like half my friends list recommends you, so I'm going to heed them.. I write a LOT so if you want to opt out of me, I won't be offended-- but hope you will (or rather, won't-- opt out that is. whatever).

How could I resist being friends with the crooner who starred in so many delightful road movies with Bob Hope? I've added you as a friend and look forward to reading your journal. I hope you occasionally find my entries interesting.

Yet another person coming over from the [livejournal.com profile] atthesametime crew. Sean should start getting a 5% commission. But someone recently noted that if you produced a radio show, it would be as compelling as This American Life -- how can I resist that?!?

From: [identity profile] villagecharm.livejournal.com
Well, that is a nice compliment. Now I feel self-conscious that the recent entries have been contentious exchanges about Leftist politics and one-line posts that feature variations on the theme "Work is crazy/I am tired." If you scroll down, though, you'll find a horrifying picture of a dessert pizza. I hope you find some things interesting, and I look forward to reading your journal.

hey there,

Commandercranky said you wrote an awesome Lance Hahn post today. I'd love to read it.

Mine is here

Date: 2007-10-23 08:35 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] villagecharm.livejournal.com
I've added you as a friend. The post is the first one. I hope you like it.

I really enjoyed your post about Lance. I didn't know him. I met him once, exchanged a few letters and e-mails over the years, but his songs always made him seem like an old friend. Your post brought that home, also his love of San Francisco. Again, a city I've never been to, but I feel like I know it the way I know Chandler's Los Angeles because of J Church songs. Reading your post at work, I was actually tearing up a little.

Greetings.

Non-judgmental person here seeking to be added to your f-list. Am seeking intelligent people with (sometimes) interesting things to say to my f-list.

I recall reading your blog about a year ago before I made a purge to my f-list for similar reasons to your own. I'm now coming back out of my hermitage to test the waters again.
