There will be a Livejournal London Meetup open to all of you. Info can be found here.

Yes, I realise this community is nationwide but thought there might be some Londoners on here interested?

guldenhund: Good psychologist wanted in Norhtamptonshire / Bedfordshire

Hi guys,

I wonder if you could recommend a competent psychologist based in Northampton / Northamptonshire / Bedford for an adult to help deal with his depression.

Yellow Pages are good, but hands-on experience is often better. So if you know someone who helped you with depression problems, whom you trust and regard as a good specialist could you please share this person's details with me.

It would be great if you could recommend someone who focuses on body-oriented therapy, including dance movement therapy.

If you are aware of a relevant website or a community I would also appreciate your giving this information to me.

Any comments will be screened.

Thank you in advance.

beta_galactose: Hiya

Hiya, I'm an artist from London. I mostly do painting and drawing but I'm trying some sculpture and I just started stained glass making classes. I love it, and I'm so lucky to live in the best city in the world for every kind of art. I basically live in the National Gallery sketching from the masters :)

I wanted to plug I've been using for a while and it's about to have a site launch so they're asking members to talk up the service. It's called Spoonfed - London's Best Event's Site and does London event listings. It has way more than Time Out or any of the others, especially when it comes to art exhibitions, classes, quiz nites and tournements. You should all check it out!




The best part is, once you register, they give you events based on your interest or your location so you don't have to search through everything in London :).

Hope to see you around!

fiction_records is the home of made-up music. If you have ever fancied yourself as an artist or the designer of album covers, this is the place to come and show off your handy work! Create your own made-up band name, album title and cover by following these simple guidelines:

1. Go to Wikipedia's random article page. The title of the first article is the name of your band.


2. Visit the Quotations Page's random quote page, tick all the boxes at the bottom of the screen) and hit the "new random quotations" button. The last 4 words of the last quote on the page is your album title.


3. Go to Flickr's "interesting photos from the last 7 days" page. The third photo is your album cover.

4. Combine them. Post the result somewhere like Photobucket and then share your work with the community!

cloudwalker_3: Seeking Nomination...

I've decided to stand for the LiveJournal Advisory Board and since I live in the UK and and am part of this community I thought I would post my election statement here and humbly ask for your support in nominations and votes. Personally, I think it would be great if we got a UK LJ member onto the board especially as, at the moment, the majority of the other nominations are fpeople living in the USA. It would give us a representative here in the UK and also make sure that the decisions that the board makes are not wholly based around an American point of view.

Although LJ is very much a business, it’s also a wonderfully large and diverse community, (and one that I’m very proud to be a member of). Being part of LJ has enriched me in so many ways. I met my partner, becksydee, here and I’ve formed long lasting friendships with a large proportion of the people I know here. It’s my online home and I care passionately about it. It’s for this reason that I am seeking your vote.

So, why choose me?

Firstly some background on myself:

I’m a guy living in London, working as a designer and photo-journalist. I’d consider myself fairly intelligent, open minded and articulate, (I’m a self confessed Guardian and Observer reader). I’ve previously been a member of several trade unions and also of a housing co-operative. I’ve a very strong belief in equal opportunities and equality. I’m particularly interested in disabilities, (I’m dyslexic, dyspraxic and dyscalculic) and also in LGBT issues, (I’ve been a disabled access officer for PrideLondon for three years) although not to the point where I am blind to all other issues.

I've been an enthusiastic Internet user for around 19 years. I'm fairly geeky, (although not to the point of ridiculousness). I’m on Facebook, Flickr and LinkedIn. I'm pretty much addicted to the Internet, (I surf a minimum of two hours a day, every day) and I think I’ve got a good understanding of it’s advantages and also its limitations. The internet is not perfect, but I think it could be better, which is where this election comes in.

At the moment, LiveJournal is, like a lot of the web, in a state of rapid flux and this election means there will be a members representative on the advisory board who can give some perspective on the issues facing us, as a community and as users. The election hasn’t happened before so I think it’s very important that you cast your vote, and most importantly vote for someone who will really work hard for you.

If elected, I’m fully committed to being both accessible and representative of your views. I’ll listen sensibly to everything that is put in front of me and I will always vote for what is best for LJ members, based on the input I receive from the people I serve. You. I won’t muck around, regard the whole exercise as a joke or take things lightly. I’m very serious about doing this and I’m committed to conscientiously working on your behalf.

I’ll never be swayed by bribe or incentive or self interest and I’m not doing this because I think there might be perks. I’m doing it because I’d like to think that maybe, just maybe I can make a difference.

If you want someone who cares passionately about the internet, someone who will represent you and your views truthfully and honestly, with conviction and enthusiasm as well as intelligence and a degree of professionalism, please support my nomination and vote for me.

Thanks for reading this.

If you’d like to help me, please post a comment and the graphic below to my nomination entry at http://community.livejournal.com/lj_election_en/21692.html (I need 100 nominations to go forward) and also please post it to your journal. I’ve included the code below as well as the graphic.

Hey Everyone,
I'm an American filling out my UCAS application and I've come across what could either be a slight or major problem.  I've finished off my high school qualifications and when I went to put my university qualifications  I don't see any option for "Bachelors of Science" or any other University Degree. What would I put my BSc under, I've looked through the lists and haven't seen anything.  Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks in Advance,
Frankee
