Subject:So what's the scoop?
Posted by:rebirtha.
Time:6:03 pm.
This doesn't seem like a community that ought to die, but peter out it has.

Ideas? Suggestions? Should I step up and put my roving investigative eye where my 0s and 1s is?

Who the fuck is maintaining this community now that grinchyjen is nihil?

I want to see some nominations. And I also wish this comm had a chorus of "bring back grinchyjen".... we do, after all, support the best of LJ, right?

I humbly submit believo as one of the weirdest and best storytellers working in LJ today. I can't believe this dude was on my friends list and I didn't even look hard enough to add him back. Probably because he never showed 'tits'. Anyway. Just want to share, for whoever still gets this.

Normally I would not introduce myself to a stagnant 'best of lj' community with an exhortation to read the posts of an (eighteen? twenty?) year old.

Wait, of course I would. I'm rebirtha and if anyone's reading this, I would imagine few of you have read my journal. Definitely not the best around. But I sure do enjoy sirlance. I remember how I wrote when I was eighteen, and feel amused, touched, and humbled. (He might be a little older. I'm not sure.) Last night there was this entry which again served to remind me how bumbling I was, and this guy is not, when I was his age.

Subject:Blood would flow if vodka did not
Posted by:slackjawed.
Time:2:23 am.
Mood:drunk.
Once, I quit drinking and cut back on drugs for like five years. Good christ, was that the most boring time of life, populated by an endless stream of uninteresting, annoying chuckleheads. You people are so much more interesting when I am in a different state of consciousness. My sobriety only seemed to bring out the worst in you. I drink so you can please me better. It is vodka-tonics that anesthetize me, sedate me, dumb me down enough that most you people are actually tolerable and occasionally amusing. I wish vodka had a vagina, so I could please her as much as she pleases me.

Subject:Fearofthedark
Posted by:slackjawed.
Time:1:36 am.
I have the priveledge of having known this goofy bastard since 9th grade. This has allowed me access to the spoken word versions of his shit, which really brings the full effect. However, even written out it is pretty damn funny. He makes no effort to make it easily readible, accessible or coherent in any respect, so be forewarned. I also need to teach him the beauty of LJcuttext, but, I doubt he would use it. In any case, theres alot to read, but there is brilliance hidden in there. So, if you want, prepare to suck the madness- fearofthedark

stereolabrat is usually pretty funny. She uses 'gay' about every other sentence.

some great poetic description from nutmeg_poet --

Goody Proctor dancing in the
woods with the devil, a tangle of sin behind smocks
:

the black man is pointing to the sky or maybe just to his apartment. his hat is on at a tilt and he has an eye like those old pictures of blackbirds, eating berries from others� bushes and wearing their neckties of mating-red. his necktie is white. he is not a blackbird, he is simply a black. his boots have a derisive curl, but perhaps they are not so much haughty as afraid, afraid to touch the ground, afraid to come too close to the sewer where, after all, we promised we�d never go back. no we don�t live there no more. it�s a popcorn existence, the kind you dip your hand into and get smeared with salted butter but you still keep on eating because after all, at the movies they charge such and such so much so since you popped this at home it would be criminal to waste. we don�t believe in waste. we won�t go back to the sewer and gutters. we are middle class now. he wears blue pants and a suit jacket far too large for his lightning-rod frame, held up in the night ben-franklin style, hoping for a revelation in the clouds. there is none to be found. he continues to point, however, because appearences do so matter and we won�t go back. no we don�t live there no more.

acidexia's journal is one I find particularly impressive. This post, about different types of LJ users, is particularly brilliant.
