Recalibration

Look, it's a poll! About emotional crap. This is, of course, triggered by things which have happened recently, and, to a lesser degree, by things which have happened often over the last couple of years, and to a still lesser degree, by things I've been working on since forever. But it's been a while I've done any surveying like this.

These are all questions about how others see me and my attempts to communicate my emotions. I can't make polls anonymous, or I would. I hope you'll answer honestly despite that. No one who reads this journal is involved in the most recent thing which prompted this survey, so this isn't a SEKRIT MESSAGE to anybody.

Poll #1745043 Humans are weird. Please help me improve my translation matrix for more effective communication.
This poll is closed.

I've often been told I'm intimidating. How intimidating do you find me? (0=not at all, 10=omg)

No vinyl version, but if there was

There’s no vinyl version of Dick Tracy Must Die, but if it existed, the mailer would probably look like this:


Actually a multi-CD mailing, packaged flat

I have a motley assortment of old media blanks lying about (cassette, minidisc) but no way to make a vinyl LP. Or an Edison cylinder, for that matter. But I think about it. XD
