the artist formerly known as darknote


in all aspects of my life i try not to be anything more or less than Simply Me, and so far this has held me in very good stead. i don't try to categorize myself in any particular group because i find that it limits what sorts of people i teach, learn from, and interact with.

If the person that i am is someone you're interested in getting to know, you are most likely welcome. If you're not interested, that's okay too.


this blog, dubbed "life of mendel", is where i reside the most. it's my life and short thoughts blog. my presence on the internet is predominantly in four other places:

[mendellee.com], my personal professional webspace. This also houses my long thoughts blog dubbed [mendel's ramblings].

[google plus] as Mendel Lee.

my youtube channel, dubbed [mendeltube].

facebook, as [mendel.lee.zero].

I also have a [twitter account], but google plus has pretty much replaced that.


- i use a paradigm of links vs. [links]. links lead to LJ or my own webspace. [links] lead to outside pages.
- i write a lot and i take my LJ universe seriously.
- i read or at least skim my friends page religiously and care deeply about every individual that graces my pages with their awesomeness.

i'm fairly certain that's all you need to know about me here. feel free to say hello. i promise i'll say hello back. :)
