It's funny 'cause it's true

I frequently recall a phrase from Alton Brown's erstwhile but excellent blog: In speaking of "Dr." Phil McGraw, AB called him a "loathsome opportuninst." Never has it been so true.

Am I now ...

... a member of the "Blogosphere"? Does my singular voice, provided to the world via this here instrument of dissemination, cause a deep rumbling of existential concern from those in Power? Will I now, 'cause I gots me a blog, cause mainstream mediorites to come running to hear my pronouncements?

I'm just wondering, 'cause, if that's the case, I should probably say something of substance.


I just heard Pat Buchanan defend Hilary Clinton to Rachel Maddow. My head is sploding.

For all you Make-sters out there.

The Scarecrow starring Buster Keaton (part 1). It's all good, but super-Make-friendly starts around 3:30.

The Laugh-Out-Loud Cats!

I have a deep desire to share the things I really love or at least find fleetingly intriguing. So that's mostly what I plan to do here. I know that's what most people probably do with their blogs. So fine. So that's what I'm gonna do.

Had a terrific idea

Promptly forgot it.

If anything, this blog may be a tool for my aging, wretched, hobbled short-term memory -- if I can remember what it is that I find interesting long enough to get it written down here, maybe I'll be able to remember where I put that idea.

Does the world need another blog?


Do I really want to try to maintain one of these things?

Well, I dunno.

Might as well find out.
