Hi again!

Here I am, reposting.  My old entry is here, if you're interested.

Name:
  Melanie

Age:  19

Location:  Missouri, United States

How do you identify?:  It's complicated.  We can discuss it later.  :P

Interests/hobbies:
  Music, video games (sometimes), art (more looking at it than creating it, these days), movies, writing, researching/looking at Wikipedia, reading (sometimes), people watching, vinyl (you know, records), typewriters, similar "old" things, yard sales (I'm a total old lady), defacing/destroying clothes, punk rock...  I spend most of my time just sitting around listening to music/on the internet/playing Sims 2.  It really is riveting.

Favourite books:  A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess, American on Purpose by Craig Ferguson, Nineteen Eighty-Four  by George Orwell, Rotten: No Irish, No Blacks, No Dogs by John Lydon, Touching From a Distance by Deborah Curtis, Mysterious Skin by Scott Heim, On The Road by Jack Kerouac, anything by J.D. Salinger, anything by Charles Bukowski, anything by Chuck Palahniuk...  I've been getting into The Beat Generation, lately.  I like reading about people's life stories, too.  I'm not into young adult books at all, really (don't even get me started on Twilight).  My library's somewhat lacking (I do live in Missouri), so it's hard for me to find really great books, unless they're insanely cheap on Amazon, haha. 

Favourite films:  A Clockwork Orange, Control (2007 film), Mysterious Skin, 1984 (1984 film), Bad Education (La mala educación), Zerophilia, Fight Club, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, The Adventures of Sebastian Cole, Snatch, Lock, Stocks, and Two Smoking Barrels, etc, etc.  I watch a ton of movies, but it's been a while since I've seen something amazing.  I'd love to swap some suggestions, though.  :D

Favourite music:  My last.fm page.  But if you lack ambition, here's a summary:  Punk rock's my life (to put it simply), but I generally listen to stuff from the 70's and 80's.  I'm real into post-punk and glam rock and ska and electronica and stuff like that.  You probably really should click on that link.  Some bands I like, though:  Joy Division, David Bowie, The Clash, The Fall, Wire, Bauhaus, Public Image Ltd., The Cure, Richard Hell, Gang of Four, Televsion, Buzzcocks, Iggy Pop, The Vibrators, T. Rex, Sex Pistols, Dead Kennedys, Tricky, Tiga, Violent Femmes, Serge Gainsbourg, The Specials, Psychotica, Glampire, LCD Soundsystem, etc (not in that order).  If we have simliar taste in music, I do like to talk about it quite a bit.

What would you like to send/receive?:  Emails, IMs (I can be pretty slow to reply and boring, but if that's your thing...), mix CDs/mixtapes (when I get a good cassette player/boombox-type thing), snail mail... If you live outside of the US, though, I'm probably not sending you any packages.  I'm lazy/cheap.  And my handwriting's hard to read, so I prefer to type letters on one of my typewriters.  But really, that's subjective...

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?:  Anyone who's willing to put in the effort.  :P

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?:  Anywhere!  I'm really interested in Canada and the UK, so.... yeah.  But anywhere's great!  :D  (I only speak English, though.  My French is really too pitiful to carry on a conversation.)

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?:  Uh... food.

What would be in your dream letter or package?:
  Art/writing.  You know, something created.  Handmade things and all that cal.  I get attached to weird little things like erasers and office supplies, too, so that could work.  XD

Anything else you'd like to add?:
  I'm pretty slow to reply sometimes.  Slow as in like, 10 days.  So, sometimes I might need a little nudge to get going.

Picture:
  All of my pictures suck/are a couple years old.  (But if you do a little cyberstalking, you're bound to come across some.)

Name: Luce

Age:
26

Location:
Illinois

How do you identify?:
Lesbian

Interests/hobbies:
I take to a fiddle now and then but I'd hardly call it playing. I like hiking, kayaking, tabletop RPGs, some computer games, getting lost in the forest, studying language and assorted other things (helpful and less than-), working at the local library, feeding the neighborhood cats and tending to my tiny garden.

About me:
I read to a fault, I'm one of those people who reads while they're walking or watching something or waiting in line. I love to read fantasy, science fiction, historical fiction, anthropology, instruction manuals or whatever I find laying about. I think baking with the right person can be sexy and adventurous. I can be embarrassingly easy-going because I believe there is a subtle grace to the way that things unfold and I love to see where life takes me. This may all makes me sound very adventurous but in fact I'm pretty passive. I would prefer pomegranate tea and a good book near the window to the outside world any day.

Favorite books:
This question is just too hard!

Favourite films:
I really enjoy low-budget, corny movies - especially thrillers. I really like to watch documentaries, old noir and black and whites.

Favorite music:
I'll listen to almost anything. I love global music. I'm not a big fan of rap or some country-western. Right now I'm really enjoying "gypsy punk", jazz fusion and old southern spirituals.

What would you like to send/receive?:
I'm open to anything. I'd love to share seeds or recipes, puzzles, mix CDs, collages, sketches or knitting. I would really love to make friends with whom I could exchange stories in letter form.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?:
I'd love to hear from anyone who feels like writing.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?:
Any and all.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?:
I'm pretty open...I would prefer that the outside of the mailing be discreet, as I live in a conservative area and it's not entirely safe to share my identity here.

What would be in your dream letter or package?:
I would love to have a regular pen pal with whom I could exchange riddles. I have a lot of spare time in which I create cryptograms. If this sounds way too geeky for you I completely understand.

Picture (optional):
I'm not completely comfortable with sharing my identity here due to aforementioned conserve small town living.

Anything else you'd like to add?:
I've been watching this community and I think the idea is wonderful. It would be nice to forge friendships with others nearby or far away. It's amazing to think that perhaps by sharing our lives with internet strangers we can all be a little less isolated.

Hey!

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: anybody, really, but I'm definitely interested in hearing from people who don't fit in the gender binary, or transguys. Preferably under 30.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: anything electronic-wherever, as long as it's in English, or somebody doesn't mind helping me practice my not-entirely-fluent languages (French-pretty good, Arabic-getting there, German's a little rusty); letters/packages-Sorry, but I can't really afford to mail things out of the country right now, so US-only

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts") food (I love receiving candy, but I just added about 8 things to my list of allergies so that might not be a good idea), anything that can go bad, not too much "adult" stuff

Name: Amber
Age: 25
Location: Virginia, United States
How do you identify?: This is complicated for me. In my early teen years I identified as bisexual, but I'm no longer really attracted to women. As for gender... I was born female, but I have definitely come to accept I'm FTM. The problem is that I'm married, and my husband is definitely straight. I still love him very much, and so I'm stuck remaining female until my life changes.
Interests/hobbies: Roleplaying and writing. Reading - just about anything. Hot Wheels (the toy cars). I absolutely love animals - I have three miniature pinschers and four cats - though I'm currently fostering a litter of kittens - and a koi pond. Movies. Theater. Music - both playing and listening; I play seven or eight instruments. I'm interested in cooking, though I don't do it much. I love webdesign and coding, as well.
Favorite books: Too many to list. It's probably easier to list favorite authors, really. Anne Rice, Naomi Novik, David Levithan. The Harry Potter series. I love sci fi/fantasy, vampire stories, classics, plays, some romance, historical fiction. I'm not big on westerns. Here's what I've read this year - I've not been reading much lately, sadly.
Favorite films: Star Trek, Stargate, Sherlock Holmes, IronMan, IronMan 2, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, Alice in Wonderland, Monty Python and the Holy Grail, anything with Will Ferrell - especially Stranger then Fiction.
Favorite music: I listen to just about all music, except country. Favorite artists include - Incubus, Live, Metallica, Rammstein, Korn, 311.
What would you like to send/receive?: I don't know. I'm just looking to make some connections with people who know what it's like to be queer. I'd probably prefer to start out things in comments/PMs on LJ. From there we can go to IM, e-mail, handwritten letters, packages, whatever. I've always wanted penpals, but after running into some psychos online, I'm hesitant.
Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Someone with similar interests and favorites.
What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: The US would be cheapest, which is good, but I don't mind mailing internationally.
Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Candy/sweets aren't a great idea, since I'm diabetic, but since I got my insulin pump I indulge every once in a while.
What would be in your dream letter or package?: I haven't given it a lot of thought.
Anything else you'd like to add?: I can't think of anything right now.
Picture: I hate pictures of myself, but if you really want one, I'll give you one.

Name: Jackie... or Red. I go by Red on the internet a lot.

Age: 22

Location: Massachusetts, USA

How do you identify?: Bisexual woman... well, really I'm more gender indifferent, which I guess is what "pansexual" is, but I don't like the word. It's a personal choice.

What would you like to send/receive?: Just e-mail and IM right now

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Anybody!

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Anywhere, as long as you can speak English, because the only other language I can speak is Bad, Broken Spanish. And I shan't embarrass myself to native Spanish speakers with my terrible Spanish-language skills.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Not taking physical mail right now, thanks. It's a privacy thing. : )

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Oh, anything. I'm just looking for new people to talk to, really. I like making new friends. \o/

Name: JD (two letters, easy to remember)

Age: 27

Location: Idaho, USA

How do you identify?: (sexuality/gender) Officially, I have no sexuality. I took a vow of celibacy 8 months ago. But prior to that I was pretty flagrantly bisexual. And by that, I mean I like what I like, and what ever's between the legs is fine by me. I'm male, but the inner gay man likes to escape now and again. Actually I am FTM, but far enough along in my transition, I rarely have to say that outloud any more.

Interests/hobbies: Dogs and Horses. I make a living training dogs and horses. So they take up the primary amount of my focus. I studied English (creative writing) in college, and fancy myself something of an author, but hesitate on being published because I am an oddity like that. I live and breathe music, including performing at a bar on sunday nights. I read a lot. I am into biking, swimming, hiking, camping, and any sport that could potentially kill me. I played baseball growing up, and am a first degree blackbelt. I do most of the repairs on my ancient and decrepit but beloved truck myself. I am a hardcore geek at heart. I role play, I show up to movie premieres in costume, and I'm unapologetic about it. And I do karaoke a couple of nights a week with my band, because I'm that kind of nerd. I also collect antique books.

Favourite books: Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (James Joyce), Picture of Dorian Grey
(Oscar Wilde), The Dresden Files (Jim Butcher), The Crucible (Arthur Miller), The Courtship of Princess Leia (David Wolverton...yes I am a star wars junkie). Out of Sight (Elmore Leonard), Lonesome Dove (Larry McMurty), About a Boy (Nicolas Hornby), and anything by Hemmingway.

Favourite films: This will be a long list.Casablanca, Gone with the Wind, Rebel with out a Cause, Star Wars (episodes IV through VI), Star Trek IV, Blade Trinity, Shawshank Redemption, 500 Days of Summer, Lethal Weapon 3, Terminator, Terminator 2, Stargate, John Carptener's Vampires (I kind of have this thing for bad vampire movies...), Lost Boys, Ocean's 11 (original and the remake), Serenity.Butch Cassidey and the Sundance Kid. And musicals. I love music, so naturally I love musicals. Newsies, RENT, West Side Story, and Sound of Music are amongst my favorites.

Favorite TV shows: (I'm adding this, because I love tv. A lot. It's probably my favorite medium). The X Files (it goes first because it was the single greatest thing to ever grace the airwaves), Firefly, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, the Profiler, Stargate (SG1 and Atlantis), Supernatural, Castle, GLEE, Sliders, Torchwood, Burn Notice, Pysch, the Big Bang Theory, Star Trek (TNG mostly, but I watched them all)...thank the gods for DVR, right?

Favourite music: I'll just list a couple, because when it comes to music I have only one philosophy: if it's good, I'll listen to it. But my favorites include: Bad Religion, Green Day, AC/DC, Led Zeppelin (best bad ever), The Beatles, the Doors, Bob Dylan, Eric Clapton, Garth Brooks, Broadway Classics (especially music from Miss Saigon and Les Mis). Sex Pistoles, The Ramones, and Hair bands. Mostly it's classic rock, with a sprinkling of whatever the hell else I find during a youtube crawl.

What would you like to send/receive?: Anything really. I'm open to all kinds of new expierences and things. Though I gotta say someone who could turn me on to new books and music and movies would be awesome. And I like letters. There is something very satisfying about opening the mailbox and there being a letter there (amongst all the bills) just for you. I like hand written, or typed, and I say that with the notion in mind that my handwriting is virtually a foreign language. So if you go that route with me, consider this fair warning.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Anyone. Any where. Any time. Bring it on.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: Anyone. Anywhere.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: (eg. "food/candy with nuts") I'm allergic to soy and mustard seed. SO yeah that wouldn't be really usable for me. Also, I am willing to discuss religious philosophy, but conversion tactics aren't appreciated. Otherwise, bring it on!

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Hand written letter, or letters depending on how often one is sending such things. Something that would have taken time to construct, and shows thought and effort. And mix CDs of new music from all over the place. Maybe other writer's works just for fun.

Anything else you'd like to add?: Not really. I'm pretty approachble, or I try to be. I think I'm fun, or at least I'm told I am by those who insist on calling me friend. I'm part old school cowboy, part punk rock revolutionary, and a significantly committed daredevil. I also practically never sleep.

Picture (optional): There's one in the icon thingee, but I'll share more as I get to know folk.

Name: Star

Age: 16

Location: California, USA

How do you identify?: Recently out (apparently femme) lesbian, though I identified as bisexual/pansexual from middle school up until mid-sophomore year.

Interests/hobbies: I love opera, ballroom dancing, deep conversations, literature, art, and basketball. I don’t play sports (competitive ballroom dancing not included), but I love to watch. I’m a self-identified Trekkie as well, so watch out.

Favourite books: Hunchback of Notre Dame (all-time favorite), Harry Potter series, Count of Monte Cristo, Phantom of the Opera, Pride and Prejudice, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, anything Edgar Allan Poe, the Sherlock Holmes series, Night, Julius Caesar, Fahrenheit 451, The Silence of the Lambs series, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Angels and Demons, FanFiction, comics (notably the Batman comics)

Favourite films: Edward Scissorhands, The Cabinet of Doktor Caligari, Phantom of the Opera (Lon Chaney Sr.), Disney’s Alice in Wonderland, The Star Trek series, All the Queen’s Men, Dark Knight, Labyrinth, But I’m a Cheerleader, The Crow, Nightmare on Elm Street (original series), Were the World Mine, Disney’s Sleeping Beauty, Disney’s The Lion King

Favourite music: I love all different types of music. Alice Cooper, Aerosmith, Lady Gaga, Mozart, Andre Rieu, Malice Mizer, Gackt, Voltaire, Frank Sinatra, Run DMC, Alex Swings Oscar Sings!, Sondheim, The Beatles, Garou, Miyavi- to name a few.

What would you like to send/receive?: Emails, though I’m big on the instant-messaging (as I can access it from any location). I don’t give out my address to just anyone for obvious reasons.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Anyone who doesn’t classify as a creeper basically.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: I don’t have a preference, though I am in the process of learning Spanish (semi-fluent) and Japanese (beginner’s level), so someone living in a country where either is spoken would be a perk.

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Well, actual in-your-postbox mail at the moment, and e-mail spam would be a no.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: I’d have to say a well-written letter full of ideas and emotions. It’s always interesting to hear what other people have to say, and their feelings on different topics. I don’t care much for material items, sentimentality counts more.

Anything else you'd like to add?: I’m not usually visibly logged onto LiveJournal, but I’m good at keeping up correspondence- even once I’m immersed in school. I'm an active council member at my school's GSA- and I care a lot for LGBT politics. I'm also Jewish, though more reformed.

Name: Crissy

Age: 22

Location: Louisiana, USA

How do you identify?: Effeminate female. *wears a lot of skirts*... I'm either: (a) bisexual with a tendency toward women; (b) a lesbian; or (c) pansexual, because I still think my ideal partner might be a cross-dresser, haha. I'm really not into labels because then it's like you have to be/act in a way that depicts that model. I'm more of a a "I am what I am" type person.

Interests/hobbies: Um... I love Japan for more than its anime and manga. I'm 2/3rd's finished with my psychology degree (possible art minor). I draw and paint, and write poetry that comes out in splatters but for some reason people still like it. I appreciate nature, coffee, and drag queens. I love opera and steaks. I'm crazy yet down to earth, emotional yet rational. I'm spiritual but not religious. I love talking to new people! When I'm not being in depth, I'm very random: expect anything and everything. I get wayyyy too much pleasure out of organizing. Art and music and creativity fuels my soul. I can't help but think too much. I love corsets and lace and painting my fingernails black. I can get way too hyper about things. I like to send people random stuff, bwaha.

Favourite books: I'm not ashamed to say that I really don't do books. I like a few manga series (Kuroshitsuji, Loveless, Godchild, etc.) because I can sit and ogle at the gorgeous artwork like a five-year-old. Otherwise, I enjoy some good poetry every now and then, but I love reading articles and non-fiction things more than I will ever enjoy a fiction novel. I enjoy reading about psychology (obviously), philosophy, art, sexuality, mythology, spirituality, culture... The list goes on!

Favourite films: Moulin Rouge, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, August Rush, Phantom of the Opera, V for Vendetta, Guys and Dolls, The Eye (original Chinese), various other Asian films. Wolf's Rain is an anime but it should count because it's incredible, haha. [Edit: Oh! And the Resident Evil and Underworld sagas.]

Favourite music: Symphonic metal is my favourite genre. Classical music, J-rock, or other rock music that has a point to it (can't stand "emo" bands). Within Temptation, Lisa Loeb, Flyleaf, Brandi Carlile, Malice Mizer, Chevelle, Muse, Sia, Blue October, Snow Patrol, Queen, Vanessa Carlton, Evanescence, Goo Goo Dolls, Korn, Savage Garden, Stella Soleil, Vanessa Mae, Velvet Eden, D'espairsRay, Kagerou, Plastic Tree, Rentrer en Soi, Minagawa Junko, Yoko Kanno, Bach, lots of others. I have music in like 20 different languages, whoa.

What would you like to send/receive?: Actually, I really like instant messaging programs, but I do understand that many people are too busy for that, and some times it's inconvenient because of time zones. So, e-mail is great, too. :D I make my own stationery and regularly write, but I probably won't be cool with "snail mail" until I really know you, sorry. =\

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Anyone who shares something to talk about. :D

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: No preference. It's fascinating to talk to people from other parts of the world because the cultures are so diverse, but just know that I only speak English. (I know a little French and a little Japanese but probably not enough to get by with, haha)

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Nothing randomly vulgar or gross?

What would be in your dream letter or package?: Anything constructed from elegant stationery with old fashioned ribbons and wax seals... Yeah.

Anything else you'd like to add?: I think that about covers it!

Favourite books: Lynn Flewelling's books, LotR series, Good Omens, Terry Pratchett's Discworld books... And some other random stuff.

Favourite films: Films are kinda come-and-go for me. I like the shiny ones with explosions or cool worlds or both. Most recently I've seen and enjoyed Avatar and How to Train Your Dragon. The only one that's stayed a favorite is The Princess Bride. Unless Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along-Blog also counts.

Favourite music: Uhmm... -shuffles through library- Lady Gaga, the Glee soundtrack, And Then There Were None, 30 Seconds to Mars, access, Bump of Chicken, Angels and Airwaves, Bloc Party, Stabilo, David Bowie, The Hush Sound, Jack's Mannequin, Less Than Jake, The Matches, Mindless Self Indulgence, Placebo, Queen, Rammstein, Trans-Siberian Orchestra... I listen to a lot of different things.

What would you like to send/receive?: I'm not picky about what I get. As far as giving goes, I like to babble on about stuff. I can draw when the mood strikes, but I'm more of a "silly doodle" kind of person, not a "work of art" one. I have a tendency to give advice - I like to try and help people when I can. At this point, I would prefer email, because my physical address is going to change soon, but I'm definitely open to snail-mail once that's settled.

Who would you like to send and receive mail from?: Doesn't matter, really. Just looking for other people to correspond with for fun.

What countries would you like to receive mail from and send to?: I don't care with email, but seeing as I'm a poor college kid, I'd really like to be able to send snail mail with just one stamp (unless you're willing to pay for postage, at which point, I'll gladly send to anywhere!)

Anything that you would particularly NOT like to receive?: Anything sexual. My boyfriend might have to be angry about that... Packages are cool as long as I'm warned beforehand.

What would be in your dream letter or package?: My teaching certification, a shiny new home, and a puppy. And enough money to set me well-off for life. Uhm, idk xD;; I like letters!

Anything else you'd like to add?: I'm really just a dorky guy. I like talking and chatting with people. I can get a little weird and a little ranty (seriously, just look at my latest LJ entries - none of it's locked), but I really do love trying to help people out. If I can be the one guy you can unload on and get some understanding, that makes me happy.

Picture (optional): This one! And my boy. Also, my kitteh.
