Last Call for Entry Suggestions!

We're closing in on a rough table of contents for the book and this is the last week for open entry suggestions. 11:59 p.m. PST on February 25 is your last chance to suggest any and every excellent entry (remember that entries should be the author's original content and written in English). Things we're particularly interested in: entries from individual journals (it doesn't have to be your own); entries from the early years (1999–2000); and entries from the very, very recent past (i.e. 2007 and 2008).

Anthology Recent Entries 2009

These two are my own and favourite and from this year! Use them :D!

Searching In Stone 23-2-9

I graze my hands on stone as i grapple for understanding.
I cut and bleed, bashed and scratched on stone ears, stone words and stone thoughts.
But If they are stone, surely i am also stone? Why would this not be the case?
But i scrape! i cut! I bleed from my mind!
But they cant hear me. They cant even see me.
So I lay bleeding in utter confusion.
They are stone. I am not.

The Cobbler 18-2-9

People don't always have the right shoes to walk where im walking. But ive seen some pretty good knock offs though. In the store, you wouldn't know the difference! But just try and get someone to walk in them, and see how far you get. I wish i was a better cobbler.

Thanks!

I would like to nominate bravecows entry here for sheer beautifulness and poetry.

Just re-discovered this. My experiences of the tragedy at Columbine and the aftermath, posted 5 years after. It wasn't my school, but it was my community, my friends. I think I needed to put everything down.

I did want to nominate something funny (Alas, kenthar deleted his lj... His posts were hilarious.), but I think this post was one of my more impactful.

table of contents or cover page of birthday book

suggestion:
quote reads as follows for title page? or in contents?

When You Were Born,You Cried.
And The World Rejoiced...
Live Your Life In Such a Manner.
That When You Die..
The World Cries,...And You Rejoice.
-Ancient Indian Proverb-

or maybe inspiration contents like:

Contents Makes Poor Men Rich;
Discontent Makes Rich Men Poor.
-Benjamin Franklin

This is the livejournal of a very intelligent and gifted man who passed away from cancer. While I didn't know him personally, his writings and life story touched me deeply.

Just about my love for my CD collection the the thought process behind its organization

These were two entries that I did for the Brigits Flame community, and the very two that I enjoyed the most.

Well. I took a look through these 12 pages. I was like "WWOWWW" 0_0
People do have so much nice things to write about. I admire that, the touched stories, the memorable quotes. I'm sure the LJ book will be def. AWESOME! (:
I want to contribute some too, eventhough the entries were just the random things of my life. But i just want to contribute, that's all. The entries are veryyyy random.
I wish this project a best luck!

Thanks! We're excited about all the great entries we've read, too.

Being Narcissistic Here

This is pretty much the post that helped me win the first LJ Idol. It's about what happens when you combine sleep deprivation, sinfully strong coffee, and Johnny Cash. There are some questionable words in the post and you can edit those out if you want to use the post for the book. I'd be very honoured if you choose it:

The Redeye Grande

If that doesn't work, here's the raw URL: http://tinhuviel.livejournal.com/1088602.html

Entries about the paradigms of LiveJournal

Well, this seems like a cool idea. At the risk of sounding conceited, I humbly submit for your consideration these entries I wrote about the character of LJ:

Enjoying Livejournal: What to expect, how to react - http://skreyola.livejournal.com/174589.html
What is this?: On the basic nature of LJ - http://skreyola.livejournal.com/84798.html
This journal is not friends-only: Regarding the single-public-entry journals - http://skreyola.livejournal.com/79375.html
LiveJournal as a social construct, Internet as a medium of relational connection: On what LJ is and its place among other Internet structures - http://skreyola.livejournal.com/96250.html

LJ has been wonderful the eight years I've been here. I have done quite a bit of struggling to understand LiveJournal's place in my life, which is why I wrote so many entries about it. The benefit and the problem of LJ is very similar to the benefit and the problem of Linux: It is so many things to so many people, and so many people use it in so many different functions, that it's hard to pin down what it is supposed to be to you. Well, here's to the next ten years of LJ! Na zdrowie!
