worth revisiting: cdpdn in 2011

30 Dec

For all the posting I did this year, I don’t think I hit as many personal “wow” writing notes this year. Most of what I ended up posting was “link and short response” and “oh look at this thing” blogging, which, while valid art forms, don’t really exercise the writing muscles much. However, that doesn’t […]

this is a test

18 Mar

For the last couple of months, I’ve been rather lax in checking out the back-end stuff around this little disused alcove of the internet. In the last day or two, I rectified that, and saw some things worth changing; nothing major that anybody’s ever going to notice, but just in case, I shall share. Thing […]

little to nothing to report

08 Dec

Other than the fact that another big chunk of my leaves have been relocated to a big pile someplace, our Christmas decorations have been put up (thankfully, they’re quite understated), and my opinion that Heroes season three, now that I’ve caught up with most of it via the roku, isn’t nearly as bad as everyone’s […]

inviting comment: your first album

16 Sep

Inspired by this piece in the Onion AV Club, I figured I’d try something new; actually inviting comments from you, my meager population of readers… Share with the rest of us, dear reader: What was the first record(/tape/cd/8-track/wax cylinder) you bought for yourself with your own money? I’ll start: Bruce Springsteen’s Born in the USA; […]
