I don’t intend to write too much today, but dammit, I’m writing something to at least keep my site’s posting pace going. Â You see, in January 2014, I managed to post every single day. Â I’ve never done that. Â Never. Â The WordPress posting system allows for posts of just images or “asides” which I am madly in love with, as sometimes you just don’t feel like sharing a novel. Â So yeah, January was a win for me and I got a post in every day. Â Sometimes a day’s post was put in just under the wire, but it still got put in that day.
I’m excited to post this month as well – I have a few topics and ideas that I’m going to be playing with, including Throwback posts in which I include links to albums of photos that I’m going to be scanning the negatives of. Â These are mostly photos from high school, college and ROTC, and whatever else I managed to save negatives of, which admittedly is a lot. Â But you just never know how well those things work out. Â I’m also interested in writing down my thoughts about my life in the closet, as even though I’m no trailblazer or some brave soul, I had to live a lie for a very long time. Â And that leaves marks. Â And of course I want to write about media I’ve consumed, and I’m really excited about when Survivor and Amazing Race return. Â I’ve got to still figure out just what it is I want to do with those shows – I’d love to actually provide a viewpoint or service that others could actually find useful.
Random aside: Â I’m watching CNN’s Crimes of the Century show tonight and it’s about John Lennon’s murder. Â Holy fuck. Â Mark David Chapman was seriously fucked up. Â And the murder is just so pointless.
2nd Random Aside: Â Holy hell, how did I miss the Liquid Plumr ad campaign with hot guys? Â I think each month’s recap post will have to feature them. Â Just saying. Â BTW, this is my way of giving appropriate credit for the image above.
3rd Aside: Â More hotness, this time in the form of a seriously hot guy who is also clever, having filmed himself in brief second-long snippets and edited them together in a fabulous international montage.
