  1. name: Lynna, or Miss Lynx
  2. birthday: Feb 19
  3. place of residence: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
  4. what makes you happy: Many things, but at the moment, spring, my pets, and the pot of hyacinths on my windowsill.
  5. what are you listening to now/have listened to last: "Kyrie Eleison" by Stellamara
  6. do you read my lj?: I wouldn't have seen this if I didn't... :-)
  7. if you do, what is particularly good/bad about it: My favourite parts are your political rants and the cute pictures of baby Lilith.
  8. an interesting fact about you: when I was around 7 years old, I asked my mom what "Up against the wall, motherfucker" meant.
  9. are you in love/do you have a crush at the moment: Sadly, no. I am coming up on the one year anniversary of my separation from my wife, and dating no one.
  10. favorite place to be: either riding my bike (though I suppose that's technically not a "place"), or up at my mother and stepfather's place in northern Ontario. They live in a log house surrounded by 85 acres of pine forest.
  11. favorite lyric: Probably "See Who I Am" by Within Temptation. Excerpt:

    Fear is withering the soul
    At the point of no return.
    We must be the change
    We wish to see...

    See who I am,
    Break through the surface.
    Reach for my hand,
    Let's show them that we can
    Free our minds and find a way.
    The world is in our hands -
    This is not the end.

  12. best time of the year: spring! I know I will lose all my goth points for saying this, but I love seeing everything come back to life.
recommend:
  1. a film: The Secret of Roan Inish
  2. a book: Ravens in the Library: Magic in the Bard's Name (http://www.sjtucker.com/ravens.html), a collection of awesome fantasy stories by a variety of famous and not-so-famous authors, released to raise money for singer S.J. Tucker's medical bills.
  3. a band, a song and an album: Hmmm, a song from that particular album by that particular band, or three completely different ones? If the former, I think I'll say "Deathlust" from Sieben's Sex and Wildflowers album. If the latter, "Spin Moon Magic" by the Dreamside for the song, Mother Earth by Within Temptation for the album, and Shiva in Exile for the band. Ha - that means I really got to pick two songs, two albums and four artists!
plus:
  1. one thing you like about me: Well, apart from your politics and your adorable kidlet, both of which I've already mentioned, it would probably have to be that whole BPAL thing... :-)
  2. two things you like about yourself: Hmmm... Probably that I'm creative in a variety of different media, and that I look about 15 years younger than I really am.
  3. put this in your lj so i can tell you what i think of you Maybe...

11. ~ Most of this is memory now // I've gone too far to turn back now // I'm not quite what I thought I was but // Then again I'm maybe more // The blood-words promised, I've spoken // Releasing the names from the circle // Maybe I can leave here now and, o, // Transcend the boundaries ~ Roads To Madness - Queensryche
12. Late Autumn, the changing of the leaves is one of the most stunning show Nature gives.

1. Not sure if its your thing but I just recently saw the John Adams 3 part series that HBO put out and its awesome.

I think I've been entirely a lurker so far, because I get shy about people I admire ;D

1. name: Lindsay
2. birthday: march 3
3. place of residence: MA/NJ depending on school or home

6. do you read my lj?: Yep!
7. if you do, what is particularly good/bad about it: I like the pictures of your adorable baby, and among many things how well-written your entries are.

8. an interesting fact about you: I am a little bit scared of big birds. (Maybe a lot)
9. are you in love/do you have a crush at the moment: Madly in love, with the same boy for the last 7 years. People think that's a long time, but it seems natural to me.
10. favorite place to be: Home, sitting on the beach on a nice windy day.
11. favorite lyric: I'm not sure I really have one. "You spin me right round," etc. is stuck in my head right now, though.

3. a band, a song and an album: Beats Antique, Roustabout, Collide

2. two things you like about yourself: I like how no matter how sad I am, being near animals makes me feel better. And I like my weirdly accurate sense of smell.
3. put this in your lj so i can tell you what i think of you

2. a book: Christopher Barzak's One for Sorrow.
3. a band, a song and an album: I haven't really fallen in love with any music since I discovered Vienna Teng. So, kindly allow me to recommend her. I'm going to pass on the other two. Really now, I think we've established that I'm not on the forefront of musical discovery at the moment. ;)

plus:
1. one thing you like about me: I like your sense of humor.
2. two things you like about yourself: I like that once in awhile I come up with a genuinely inspired idea. I like that even though it seems to keep getting harder instead of the easier, I haven't given up just yet. ;)

When the rain is blowing in your face,

I could offer you a warm embrace
to make you feel my love.

and there is no one there to dry your tears,
I could hold you for a million years
to make you feel my love.

I know you haven't made your mind up yet,
but I would never do you wrong.
I've known it from the moment that we met,
no doubt in my mind where you belong.

I'd go hungry; I'd go black and blue,
I'd go crawling down the avenue.
No, there's nothing that I wouldn't do
to make you feel my love.

The storms are raging on the rolling sea
and on the highway of regret.
Though winds of change are throwing wild and free,
you ain't seen nothing like me yet.

I could make you happy, make your dreams come true.
Nothing that I wouldn't do.
Go to the ends of the Earth for you,
to make you feel my love
