It’s been about a month since I last made a hollow threat to quit the blog. But if there’s no post, then the funny and interesting stuff below the comment line disappears, too. Last week, Jen mentioned…
… I really wish you had worked in a Nine Inch Nails reference, especially with a new album called “Hesitation Marks” coming out in September. But live and learn I say.
After that, I had to see what Trent was up to. I’ve never been a huge fan, but he’s done some interesting stuff, and he cleaned up nicely for the Oscars.
Blogging is, by its nature, a solipsistic exercise.
[solip·sistic adj. Describing an endeavour in which one uses words like “solipsistic”.]
However, you can’t go about examining the nature of life, death and god in every post, so it is good to look outside from time to time. That is to say, it’s time for another digest post, and to look at the Wide World of Strokes.
So, the past couple of Wednesdays, I’ve taken a class on using WordPress. Who’d have thought that, until this point, I’d been making it up as I went along, after some (well, a great deal) of help from Neal. Thanks, Neal; don’t think you’ve gotten a proper shout out yet. (Note: any ugliness and bad writing associated with this site are purely the blogger’s own.)
Anyway, eagle-eyed regular apoplectics may already notice a few small changes around here, such as a small navigation menu at the top of the site, populated entirely by the new “About Me” page, and properly embedded twitter posts. So, if there are any new bells and whistles that you’d like to see on apoplectic.me, drop me a line (note to self: start by installing convenient “Contact Me” link). But don’t send me a line about how the Romans didn’t use capitals.
