Journal name per amica ailentia lunae is Latin for "under the friendly silence of the moon." It's the title of a book of occult philosophy written by Yeats, one of my favorite poets. I used it because I feel that way about the moon, especially when it is full- as if it fills the night air with unheard blessings, touching everything with magic.

Subtitle across the ferny brae is from the ballad "Thomas the Rhymer":
And see ye the bonny, bonny road
that winds along the ferny brae?
That is the road to fair Elfland
Where you and I tonight maun gae.

...and anyone who knows me knows of my fascination with Faerie, et. al.

Friends page unindicted co-conspirators is a mocking (yet loving) tribute to my roguish friends. It's a Watergate reference... the scandal was going on during a formative period in my life, and may've provided the spark for my later love of gonzo journalism.

User name It's all random221b's fault- see my very first entry for an explanation.

Default userpic I made it with a face generator (sorry, can't find the link), and think it captures my essential screwheadedness pretty well.
