Dear Weblog

Dear Weblog, Sorry I’m late. No, I didn’t forget you. No, it’s not because the newness of our relationship wore off. I’ve been busy. Yes, I’ve been seeing younger servers and platforms but younger has nothing to do with it. Well, sure there’s less maintenance but that’s not it either. Of course I love you. […]


Valentine’s Day Massacre

Possibly closer to 50,000 though it is hard to say, as I have used the old method of calculating words per line per page. Apparently, I have such […]

Lights From Space Music

I am currently digging Lights From Space a rock band from Seattle (see music below).  Surprisingly, the band’s music has received very few views, despite such catchy tunes.  This made me think of Dalton Caldwell’s post on predicting hit songs because he and I were surprised to see a similar situation with The Mowgli’s. If I had a […]
