I haven’t been blogging lately because I’ve been having a lot of internal conversations about things that I don’t really know how to write about yet. I’ve tried to fill the gaps by including some of my posts from Facebook which I thought were worth sharing here, but now it feels kinda lazy!
As two or three of you may have noticed, my site seems to be in a sort of limbo. I don’t think I’ll ever take it completely offline, but lately I haven’t had much to say that I haven’t said already. I’ve been writing online for nearly 20 years, starting in 1994 with my first website. I’ve spouted my opinions, ridiculed ideas and beliefs which I considered to be bullshit, ranted against advertising and marketing twats, mocked and vilified Christian Republicans and their behavior, reveled in gadgets and technology, raged against homophobic assholes…am I missing anything? I suppose there’s a good amount of borderline slander in here as well. 🙂 A lot of the older stuff kinda makes me wince when I read it now, but that’s OK. Hopefully I’ve evolved somewhat since then!
This is why I often have to think long and hard (heh) whenever I start wondering if it’s time to shutter the site. The archives are snapshots of where I was at the time with politics or personal issues, so I suppose it’s a sort of journal. I kind of like the idea of keeping it around even if I don’t update it often, just for my own amusement and possibly some occasional navel-gazing. That’s why I’ve been adding stuff to The Vault (which you can get to via the drop-down menu). I’ve been digging up stuff that’s been offline for years and resurrecting it, trying to make a more complete archive of this “creative output”, for lack of a better term. I’m not sure how I’ll roll in the Tumblr sites, but we’ll see… There’s even more that I haven’t put online yet, like the dumb little ‘zine I used to make in high school. Truly embarrassing stuff…
Anyway, that’s where things are now. So here’s a picture which is completely unrelated but must be seen nonetheless. 🙂
