Here we go again

Here I am.  Why am I doing this?  Do I really need to communicate my thoughts and feelings, the trivial details of what is in the grand scheme of things a trivial life, in a form longer than a Facebook status or a Like button?  I tried some form of blogging years ago on a long forgotten artifact of 21st century digital waste called MySpace.  Other than drawing comparison between Garfield, the Klan, Ann Coulter and that band that sings about self righteous suicides (I hated them so much I’m relieved to find out I don’t remember their name) I have not made much an attempt to “go out there” and fill the imaginary space that is the digit universe.  I think what made me want to finally do this is that everything here will be forgotten, if it’s ever noticed at all.  Anything I write won’t be catalogued and cross indexed in some future anthropologist’s paper (what will they publish with in a thousand years?) describing in general fashion about the state of mind of the early 21st century’s denizen.

That seems to make to worthwhile to me.

So what will I write about?  I have no idea.  I’m sure they’ll be some home improvement articles, and links to videos I find amusing or horrendous or sublime.  They’ll probably be some dog pictures, some pictures of me and my friends, and an occassional late night drunken post about the dire situation of some aspect of the world that no one will remember in ten years.  Who knows.

So here we go.  Maybe I’ll get something up later today or maybe this will the only thing I post.  My main interest is to find out if this holds any interest.  I’ll probably become addicted to it.

Oh and that band’s name is System of a Down.  Some things just don’t get forgotten like they should.

A little funky Japanese fun from Soul Train for your Sunday.
