blogosphere news
two things.  first, is this all it takes?  (last item)  in that case, lileks will never, ever link to me.  even though his name is in my sidebar (if not a link...need to fix that).  nor will glenn, or michelle, or the other frank.

there, i should be rolling in traffic tommorow.  then i'll probably go catatonic with nothing to say for two weeks, and be back to my usual traffic, which i'm much happier with anyway. i'm glad i'll never be popular, it scares the crap out of me.  as long as a few people out there see this nonsense, i'm a happy camper.

secondly, and speaking of popularity, i just attempted to explain to my girlfriend what an instalanche is.  keep in mind, to her blogging is "the other thing he does when he's on his computer and i'm not around".  didn't go so well.  the sentance "it's a good thing for us geeks" seemed to be satisfactory, if less than explanitory, but good enough.

anywho, congrats to robert and steve the llama butchers.  like i said, you guys certainly deserve it.  even when i don't understand what the hell you're talking about, this is top of the list great stuff, and a daily read in this minor empire. 

yip! yip! yip!


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
