|02:02 pm - Fighting the good fight, you know. . .|
"I can't believe she picked it up,
She didn't know the rules somehow.
Then I hear her say, "Hello". . .
Panic in the gray room now!"
I'm laughing at the rules today.
Current Mood: amused
Current Music: "The Good Fight", -JB
To whom it may concern:
shizukagozen is the fluffiest scholar I know. She turned me from the Dark Side of the Vedas when she approached me with her amazing Force Powers of the Gita. You see, I was being attacked by Vedic crazy-people (they look kinda like Jawas, but without robes and glowing eyes), and she jumped between them with only her Shivi Mind Tricks and her LingumSabre.
You should have seen the battle, where there were many Yonis carved into the flesh of the Vedism Lord and his Apprentice. For some reason, always two there are. She fought them like Kali incarnated, but without all the yucky blood and stuff, because really Kali is like a loving mother who is all about protection and harmony.
Anyway, she took me to study in the Dharma System, where I learned all about the MidiKaramas, little pieces of Karma that give us our life force.
I've been a great Hindu Scholar ever since, and have even surpassed Wendy Doniger in my mistranslations of Vedic texts to make them look more Hindu.
And it's all thanks to the Vedi Knight, shizukagozen. I'd recommend her for any fluff you could throw at her. It'll only become fluffier.
PS: Don't worry about the foam. I hear it cures warts (but not genital warts, so don't get any ideas!)
Rockin'!! That will get me a job in a Hindu temple in no time flat. Or do I need to get over myself? Like seriously.
Totally seriously, bitch.
I may be a bitch, but at least I don't have such an egotistical icon!
Hey, you knockin' on my icon? druidkirk
told me it was hot
. I'll believe a gay man over a lesbian on that count any day
I knockin' everything 'bout you yo. But, damn, I can't compete with a gay man.
Don't fret over that too much. There are few who can compete with a gay man. It's one of our oh-so fabulous superpowers, you know... :P
On a totally unrelated note, doushite "shizukagozen" wo anatano yuuzaanemu tsukau no tame ni eranda? Ii koto to omou da kedo... I've been curious for some time, but have never gotten around to asking before now.
Please forgive me as my Japanese is extremely rusty, but I believe you are asking why I have the username I do and/or what it means (or if I know what it means)? Haha. I suck. :)
Anyway, this is from my el-Jay (and most likely more than you wanted to know):
Shizuka Gozen, in legend, was the favourite concubine of the twelfth-century hero Yoshitsune. She was also a dancer known for her beauty and magical dancing. It is said that there was a one hundred day drought and the day she danced the gods sent down rain.
Yoshitsune's half-brother Yoritomo forced him to flee Kyoto; he did so with many warriors and twelve of his concubine, one of which was a pregnant Shizuka. After traveling Yoshitsune realized his entourage was too large and so he sent all of the women home. Shizuka returned to Kyoto to be arrested by Yoritomo.
Yoritomo had her interrogated, but she refused to reveal anything. After some time, he cruelly declared if her unborn child was male the child was to be taken and killed. No sooner had Shizuka given birth than the child was snatched from her and taken to a beach where he was killed.
Before releasing her Yoritomo wished to see the famous dancer perform, but Shizuka refused. He finally got his desire fulfilled when he retainers tricked Shizuka into dancing for the gods at the Hachiman Shrine while Yoritomo watched from behind a blind. Shizuka perfumed the shirabyoshi (an erotic dance) and when she was sure she had the attention and admiration of all she broke into a love song. She sang of her lover Yoshitsune and how he had escaped Yoritomo. Yoritomo was torn between anger and joy at her abilities, but in the end he released her.
Only 18, she shaved her head and became a nun. The story concludes that she died a year later from grief and that Yoshitsune was tracked down and killed.
I chose the name because I love concubine, courtesans, tayu, old Japanese prostitutes, and geisha (some historians say Shizuka was an inspiration for geisha-- I do not buy it), I shave my head, I want to be a nun, I have lost three children, and I am a dancer. In short, I relate to her. While in Japan I visited many places tied to Yoshitsune but I was unable to visit the place of his death. As I am moving to Thailand I shall get to it soon enough.
Note: forgive my sloppy Japanese. I should have proofread before I hit Post Comment.
