So, what to write about that is the question. A group of us used to run a blog based largely on news/politics/law an order. We did it for about 10 years give or take, but it became an obvious waste of time. First off, it became increasingly difficult to say anything meaningful about anything without every man and their dog bitching about it. Being attacked by trolls, legal threats, death threats, hacked sites and so forth all added to the decision not to bother saying anything about anything. Then Facebook came along and wiped out myspace and personal blogs in one big swoop. However there are some aspects of blogging I do miss.
It was somewhat cathartic at times to have a written rant rather than bug the Mrs, who really didn’t give a shit one way or the other for the most part. Whether I end up ranting or just babbling, or conversely loose interest and write nothing remains to be seen. Old style death threat attracting rants are over with though.
I love music, most all of it except rap, death metal (and anything and anyone who sings like cookie monster), slut pop and people who mime on stage. My current flavor is southern rock/outlaw country/hard edged blues. Basically hard rock performed while wearing a hat.
My favorite musician is probably Ritchie Blackmore. I don’t think there is a musician alive who has accomplished as much as him with the possible exception of Ronnie James Dio.
Thats enough for one day. No one is reading and no one will, but this is for me, a way to organize my thoughts to try and find moments of clarity amongst the day to day confusion.
