Only a goalie can appreciate what a goalie goes through." ~ Jacques Plante
Comment to this entry to be added. I will most likely add you back. (I'm cool that way.)
If you don't comment, I'm sorry, but I won't add you back. It's not that I don't like you, it's that I'm paranoid that way. In other words "I DON'T KNOW YOU, THAT'S MAH PURSE!"
Hockey captures the essence of Canadian experience in the New World. In a land so inescapably and inhospitably cold, hockey is the chance of life, and an affirmation that despite the deathly chill of winter we are alive. ~Stephen Leacock

Said Slytherin, "We'll teach just those whose ancestry is purest."
Any discussion on hockey goaltenders must begin with the assumption that they are about three sandwiches shy of a picnic. I can prove this. From the moment Primitive Man first lurched erect, he and those who came after him survived on the principle that when something hard and potentially painful comes at you at great velocity, you get the hell out of its path. Goalkeepers throw themselves into its path. I rest my case." ~ Jim Taylor
Look a disclaimer: Yeah, I have opinions on things. If you disagree, feel free to comment and engage me in discussion. Discussions are interesting and will be kept civil. If you disagree and don't wish to engage in a civilized fashion, then the scroll wheel is right there, just a millimetre to the right of the button you'll click to hit "Post comment".
My journal means my opinions and (general) you may disagree with me, however I'm not going to censor myself anymore. I get to have my say here in my LJ, and no one is going to keep me from doing that. This is my space, my own, my precious and I will say what I need to say, regardless of anybody else's bitchery on the subject at hand.
I’m a writer, an artist, a sometime musician. I’m a hockey player (and a coach); Iron Man: the Lord of the Crease, and a diehard Detroit Red Wings fan. I’m Canadian, gay and committed. I have pets. A lot of pets. You’ll hear about them a lot. You’ll hear about my family, my friends and my partner a lot. You’re going to get my bitching a lot, my humour a lot, my good times, work life, personal life, my bad times and everything in between.
Most of my LJ is, of course, F-locked. If you found me via fandom, my fic is archived over at keeper_of_tales. It's all unlocked over there, so you don't have to friend if you don't want to. If you still want to friend me here, however, you are welcome to do so, as I do post discussions about writing (my own and other people's, both fan and pro). If you found me via an icon I made, my icon journal is hockeytownicons. Credit for all the icons I use myself is in the keywords on my userpic page. All of them are gankable with credit, unless otherwise noted.
I post all sorts of stuff in here, serious discussion type stuff, things I find humourous, insights and opinions on various topics, GIFs, pictures, videos and hockey. I post a lot about hockey. I’m rather in love with the Detroit Red Wings, even if I like to shout at them a lot, and a few players in particular. Said players being Tomas Holmstrom, Nick Lidstrom, Steve Yzerman, Chris Osgood, Johan Franzen and Henrik Zetterberg. I’m getting into the Dallas Stars too, but that’s mostly on account of Marty Turco. So you’re going to hear about those guys a lot (and see them. I enjoy pictures.)
I love music, I worship books, I have a serious interest in all things occult, Greek, Celtic and Norse mythology, and I'm a history buff. I love to study these things. I rant. A lot. And tend to go off on weird tangents (my mind is like a grasshopper.) I’m a fountain of useless trivia. I'm abrasive, sarcastic and bluntly honest, but not arrogant. Have I mentioned I'm awesome?
You want more deets? Go click on my “About Me” post once you’ve been friended for the whole story. Cheers, all.

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne,
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken, a light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken, the crownless again shall be king.
