A few words from Pyxis:

How many total edit counts have I made to Wikipedia? Who cares. What rank I am as an active editor? So what.

I'm a faceless contributor only here for the purpose of providing information in this webopedia for a public in search of it. I don't seek and expect recognition for it. I don't run with any crowd. I've never been interested in medals and awards (I didn't go to my high school prom and graduation ceremony; nor did I stand in line to receive my B.A.) I wasn't raised to have an ego so fragile that I need to plaster my profile page with attention getters like Editor Class BFD, et. al. [But when I get a "Thank you" out of the blue from someone now and then ... well ... hot damn.] Wikipedians who collapse-tag their kudos and virtually hide them know what the priorities are, and I applaud them.

Bottom line for every, single Wikipedia editor: (1) The sun will rise and the sun will set whether I or any other editor continues editing this come one, come all, user-generated "encyclopedia" ... or stops altogether; (2) Get a grip on reality — life on Wikipedia goes on with or without you, because unless you forgot you're a total stranger; anonymous even with an invented name and invisible to everyone except yourself (and if you're dumb enough to reveal who you really are, you'll deserve all the crazies who find the road map to your front door). In the big scheme of life, "Who gives a damn!" is a motto.

So .........

Let's break out the booze and have a ball ....

Other stuff[edit]

Where else am I an active editor
Lost Girl Wiki

I am the Admin of the Lost Girl Wiki.
What I have contributed to Lost Girl articles on Wikipedia – I have also contributed to the Lost Girl Wiki. More often than not, what I provided Wikipedia appeared first in the wiki.

The Lost Girl Wiki was established on September 14, 2010. Articles (pages) of the wiki are supported with reliable sources, episodes, dialogue, interviews, screenshots, videos.

As with Wikipedia, knowledgeable members of the public are editors of the Lost Girl Wiki. As with Wikipedia, there is zero tolerance for vandals. Wikia may consist of fan communities, but the Lost Girl Wiki is taken seriously.

If you are interested in a comprehensive, all-encompassing source of information about Lost Girl, visit http://lostgirl.wikia.com/wiki/Lost_Girl_Wiki.


In case someone questions my connection to Lost Girl:

I am not and have never been involved in the production of Lost Girl, nor its official publicity and promotion. Neither am I associated with Prodigy Pictures Inc., Showcase, Shaw Media ... or anyone connected to said companies.
re ^ Statement

I have added the above statement because an aggressive and contentious editor (User:Skyerise) — that has been warned multiple times about her attitude and behavior towards other editors — accused me of having a "conflict of interest" [1] and addressed me with use of profanity. [2] She was warned about her conduct and inappropriate tagging of my Talk page. [3]

This same editor has:

Engaged in edit warring, personal attacks, and reporting good faith editors as vandals. She was warned and temporarily blocked. [4] [5] [6] [7]
IMDb

Under a different user name in IMDb than used in Wikipedia and for the Lost Girl Wiki. And whenever possible I decline from having my user name appear as a contributing editor. IMDb knows my history and that's enough.

And if you simply must know what makes me tick

Some of my favorite songs & lyrics:

I Have the Room Above Her

I have the room above her.
She doesn't know I love her.
How could she know I love her,
Sitting in her room below?
Sitting in her room below,
How could she dream
How far a dream could go?

Sometimes we meet. She smiles
And oh, her smile's divine.
It's such a treat to hear her say,
'Hasn't the weather been fine?'

I blush and stammer badly.
My heart is beating madly.
Then she goes into her room,
And I go sadly up to mine.

A lover more impetuous than I
Would say h[er] say and know the reason why
But when I get my chance
I let my chance go by.

I have the room above her.
She doesn't know I love her.
How could she know I love her,
Sitting in her room below?
Sitting in her room below,
How could she dream
How far a dream could go?

Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II
from Show Boat

Down in the Depths (On the Ninetieth Floor)

With a million neon rainbows burning below me,
And a million blazing taxis raising a roar,
Here I sit, above the town,
In my pet-pailletted gown,
Down in the depths on the ninetieth floor.

While the crowds in all the nightclubs punish the parquet,
And the bars are packed with couples calling for more,
I'm deserted and depressed
In my regal-eagle nest,
Down in the depths on the ninetieth floor.

When the only one you wanted wants another,
What's the use of swank and cash in a bank galore?
Why, even the janitor's wife
Has a perfectly good love life.

And here am I,
Facing tomorrow,
Alone in my sorrow,
Down in the depths on the ninetieth floor.

When the only one you wanted wants another,
What's the use of swank and cash in a bank galore?
Why, even the janitor's wife
Has a perfectly good love life.

And here am I,
Facing tomorrow,
Alone in my sorrow,
Down in the depths on the ninetieth floor.

I Wish I Were in Love Again

The sleepless nights, the daily fights
the quick toboggan when you reach the heights
I miss the kisses and I miss the bites
I wish I were in love again!

The broken dates, the endless waits
the lovely loving and the hateful hates
the conversations with the flying plates
I wish I were in love again!

No more pain, no more strain
now I'm sane but ...
I would rather be gaga.

The pulled-out fur of cat and cur
the fine mismating of a h[er] and her
I've learned my lesson, but
I wish I were in love again!

The furtive sigh, the blackened eye
the words "I'll love you 'till the day I die"
the self-deception that believes the lie
I wish I were in love again!

When love congeals it soon reveals
the faint aroma of performing seals
the double-crossing of a pair of heels
I wish I were in love again!

No more care, no despair
I'm all there now,
but I would rather be punch-drunk.

Believe me sir I much prefer
the classic battle of a h[er] and her
I don't like quiet and
I wish I were in love again!

Richard Rodgers and Lorenz Hart

Non sum qualis eram bonae sub regno Cynarae

Last night, ah, yesternight, betwixt her lips and mine
There fell thy shadow, Cynara! thy breath was shed
Upon my soul between the kisses and the wine;
And I was desolate and sick of an old passion,
Yea, I was desolate and bowed my head:
I have been faithful to thee, Cynara! in my fashion.

All night upon mine heart I felt her warm heart beat,
Night-long within mine arms in love and sleep she lay;
Surely the kisses of her bought red mouth were sweet;
But I was desolate and sick of an old passion,
When I awoke and found the dawn was grey:
I have been faithful to thee, Cynara! in my fashion.

I have forgot much, Cynara! gone with the wind,
Flung roses, roses riotously with the throng,
Dancing, to put thy pale, lost lilies out of mind,
But I was desolate and sick of an old passion,
Yea, all the time, because the dance was long:
I have been faithful to thee, Cynara! in my fashion.

I cried for madder music and for stronger wine,
But when the feast is finished and the lamps expire,
Then falls thy shadow, Cynara! the night is thine;
And I am desolate and sick of an old passion,
Yea, hungry for the lips of my desire:
I have been faithful to thee, Cynara! in my fashion.

Ernest Dowson
