and then this morning...
// Designs Modified 2006 by www.candoor.net // dance, sing, love (and laugh at secret messages :)
once upon a time…
this blog was created in order to leave a comment at a blog here... and then,
it became way for you who wish to know about daily life as I know it... and then,
the babbler took over, with encouragement and assistance from the peanut gallery
so now… in other words… what it is is…
simply some mundane details and trivia of a life semi-randomly babbled about
with a generous mix of sarcasm and irreverence that attempts to balance
the emotive self-importance of an individual perspective
with whatever reality might be
and musical score
yeah, all that and wide-eyed cynicism too...
OK, SO MAYBE NOT SO SIMPLY
YOU REALLY HAVE TO CARE ABOUT SOMEONE (OR BE EXTREMELY BORED) TO READ THIS BLOG...
AND I LOVE YOU FOR IT.
ONCE UPON A TIME THERE WAS MUSIC HERE, BUT THE SITE HOSTING STOPPED HOSTING, SO YOU CAN READ THE PLAYLIST HERE
(THIS BLOG IS MOSTLY MINDLESS SELF-INDULGENCE, REALLY, BUT WE ALL GO ALONG WITH IT JUST TO HUMOR IT)
and now, we interrupt this continuingly increasingly long-winded introduction to say...
IF YOU REALLY WANT TO KNOW WHAT IS GOING ON IN REAL TIME in REAL SPACE AROUND ME, GO (E)THEREAL
IF YOU DON'T HAVE TIME OR INTEREST IN BABBLE, BUT STILL WANT TO KNOW ME, GO (E)THEREAL
IF YOU WANT TO SEE LIFE'S DETAILS AND ME ACTUALLY BE BRIEF, GO (E)THEREAL
IF YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT RIGHT NOW, GO (E)THEREAL
and now, more babbles
Hello out there... this blog is a record of life as I live it as I attempt to learn how to be a human being (by contemporary human standards)... maybe then I won't be so alone.
well, that is how it started (once it started, see the description under the main title above) and in spite of the best laid plans and other cliches, it's still the intention even as it's turned into a rather babbling (and rhyming) mess... hopefully you can enjoy and still come to know me if you care to... someday, it may even become brief and sensible and on topic again. Maybe I am succeeding?
Of course it may just be yet another banal narcissistic effort in literary masturbation, but like most humans, we can pretend it isn't and imagine some more noble purposes here. Like desperate pleas for attention (and love) and validation (and trust) and companionship (and romance, at least), perhaps. I suppose it would be important to point out that in my mind, irony and sarcasm walk hand in hand with seriousness and irreverence, so you might want to put on your rubbers. Or clothes.
Also, I am not getting to many places on the web I used to visit and miss you wonderful people (most of whom don't even know I am here, ah, the irony)... if you do stumble into this blog, here you will find the daily whining and pathos and ridiculous way I (as a wanna-be human) take every little thing so seriously it's either sad or funny (depending on your perspective)... enter the drama, if you dare...
anyway, if you've found your way here because I left a comment for you, this blog is often the best I can do for daily keeping in touch these days (and I treasure the occasional comment or text message)... so thanks for stopping by... I hope you choose to check in often cuz I follow comment links and I want to stay in touch with you (yes, you)... may life be wonderful in your world :)
let's make it real... if you'd like to join me in any of these activities (on the calendar linked above) or know of other fun to suggest, give me a call at 407-325-1482.
the meetup experience is the best way to use the net to expand your offline social life... curious?... check the site out yourself in your local area or just call and ask.
make it fun out there :)
have no longer have unlimited text messaging on my phone again, so you are welcome to say hello and text anytime if you're too chicken to call... or if you just want to augment calls with a mini-letter... push some buttons to create a message and then send it to 407-325-1482 and who knows, we might even talk someday (I will not call unless you tell me to, in case you just want to keep communications to the occasional text message like comments on the web, ok?)... if you don’t have text messaging, nevermind :)
this blog is intended to be a stepping stone to sharing more in RealTime™ with you until I buy a computer that can handle an instant message program... if I keep it up to date, mostly you will find "away messages" letting you know what I am doing or where you can find me, should that be your wish... hopefully, together or apart, we are having serious fun...
the web universe beyond this blog and the blog galaxy it grows in holds many wonders and joys for me and if you take the time, for you too... some of my most precious pleasures and passions are found below, along with a few oddities that keep me amused when all the world's asleep... if you wander along these paths you will find people worth knowing, stuff worth pondering, wonders worth your time... along these paths you will find genius, folly, and friends... enjoy and share...
ok, music... if you know anything about me (or just read around my web world), you know music means a lot to me... it's impact and influence in this life for me is way beyond literary expression... if you want to know me, know music...
music, for me, is ridiculous to categorize... still, in spite of loving very diverse sounds in music, there are individuals and groups that have carved a permanent place in my psyche and life... know them, and know why, and you know me better than others who might have known me much longer or in much closer proximity...
the playlist above, the links below, the concerts i attend, the music, the soundtrack of a life... if you want to deepen your comunication with me, start there... or just enjoy :)
