Personal Stuff
So I have started another LJ under the name kriel. it will be completely friends only.

As I have stated before this LJ is about my music, my shows, and stuff that amuses me. The new LJ will be personal stuff.

One of the things that worried me when I started this is that, at the time, I had an online stalker. So I didn't talk about anything else much except music. A friend gave me a nice present a year or so ago. The stalker's real name, address and phone number. With that contact info the guy stopped right away. Thanks JC. The nicest thing anyone did for me last year.

The new journal will have things about the wife, the kids, sometimes TMI, sometimes WAY TMI, probably a little politics occasionally, and anything else that I feel that I can't put in here as Eric Coleman, Curmudgeon. I feel that I have to keep the performer and the real person fairly seperate.

With that warning, if you are interested in reading this stuff just reply here and I will friend you in the next couple of days.

I will say that unless you know me pretty well I am not likely to put you on this. Members of the Social Cloud and it's fringes will be pretty much automatic, but if you are someone I have met at a con or a show, unless we have talked a lot, I'll probably say no. Still, no harm in trying. And please don't feel insulted if I don't put you on the list, I might later. I make friends slowly and there are several people who I know from wherever who I would not hesitate to put on this and who might be surprised that I would.

Though we certainly don't know each other well, I'd like to be on the list. Reading people's journals has been a way of getting to know far-away folks better than I'd normally get chance to do.

Get me online sometime and we can talk about this. But I have to say no at this time. We've only met once.

I'm not the JC you're referencing, am I? :)

And, I'd like to be on the friends' list, but s'alright if you don't put me. We have not really talked *a lot*. :) Not at all, I think. I'm just on a fringe of the social cloud.

Ummm ... no ... it is a producer/singer/songwriter who has helped me in immeasurable ways (advice, gear, kind words, abuse when needed).

We barely know each other, but I think you should add me because I'm a friend of Luke Ski's, and because I'm a super hot chick who gives you hugs at conventions.

Which is just the very sort that I said I wouldn't give access.

I really don't know you, but I have a feeling that I will as time goes along. But I have to stick to the rules I have set for myself, for my piece of mind if nothing else.

Most of you I know well, and I was a little afraid of this. But I do have to stick to my rules here.

If I don't really know you I am going to be a little paranoid and say no. I expect with a lot of you that this will change as time goes along. But I have had a lot of problems with folks on the net and folks at shows over the years (as has my wife, she has a weird lady fixated on her at the moment, but that is a different story) and have even had threats in the past.

The new LJ is about close personal stuff that has little to do with the performer. And I feel that I have to keep a lot of it private. My apologies to the folks that I am not letting in. It is nothing personal to you, but rather a reaction to stuff that has happened the last few years. So, come talk to me at a con, come to a show, we'll see what happens.

I knew when I started this that it could be bad, but I knew that I would forget someone if I just sent out emails.
