None Shall Escape The Memes....


...not even AJ. It's a cool one, anyway (ganked from thefreak, on redjenn93's Friends page :) ).

<< My journal is called _____ because _____.
My subtitle is _____ because _____.
My friends page is called _____ because _____.
My username is ____ because _____.
My default userpic is _____ because_____. >>

(There -- now you can gank it, too.)

My journal is (now) called "City of the Pyramids" because I decided to shift its focus to initiatory matters; sort of an "Update From the Shining Triangle" dealie. See Uncle Al's The Vision and the Voice for details. :) (It used to be called "Gulistan," because that's "a rose garden" -- in, uhh, Persian, I think?)

My subtitle is "beneath the pitiless beauty of the stars" because that describes our location, spiritually and physically: everyone's, but maybe especially the initiate's.

My friend's page is called "People Who Need Watching! :0" for the obvious reasons: you guys richly repay those who read you, 'sides which, most of you is freakay.

My username is "ajrose93" because that was (and is) my (non-host) handle on AOL, when I posted all over their magical boards for upwards of five years, and co-hosted their Ceremonial Magick Chat and Thelema Discussion Group for three years or so. It's made up of my pen name ("A.J. Rose") plus my identification with the "Clan 93." ;)

And finally, my default userpic is from the real city of the pyramids, complete with a (just-visible) pitiless star winking above it.

Okey-doke. Your turn. :D

93 93/93 -- AJ

P.S. I, for one, miss davmhl, and was just about to thank him for the heads up on the Sky Captain DVD release (next February). Fooey!

P.P.S. For isomeme: excellent link on Wikipedia and related projects. One might also add that at least Alexander Hamilton's dates aren't deliberately concealed; the same is not true in Thelemic initiatory matters, making (IMO) for obvious difficulties for any Wiki-Thelema project.
