Everyone is doing a blog these days, so why not me? Actually, it’s not that I expect anyone to really read this stuff, but I have had a need to express my frustrations, my excitement, my news… you know, my thoughts. Why not blog? Facebook is ok, but I needed a more structured target for such musing, so here it is: The Electric chair (reborn).
Reborn? Yes. Back before the Web was anyhing but a geeks playground (back in the days where gopher ruled “browsing”, and IRC ruled “chat”), I had a web page I called “The Electric Chair”. As most personal websites were back then, it was plain, and pretty much just about me. It featured a picture of me, sitting in a chair playing guitar, taken with a webcam. It was the perfect cheezy MySpace/Facebook picture before there was facebook. I was an innovator in dorkiness. It also had a picture of my cat, Fizzy (RIP). Depending on where you clicked on the picture, Fizzy would Purr, or meow. Very interactive.
So here it is again… The Electric Chair reborn as a blog so that I might express my pretentiousness like so many others do.
For those of you who might actually read this… be prepared. I’ll be talking about all of my interests. These will include, but not be limited to: Conservative/Libertarian Politics, Technology, My Family, Poker, Music and All things Swing/Lindy Hop. On a good day, I might tie a few of the topics together!
But mostly, it’ll be pretentious.
PS. The content in this blog does not necessarily reflect the views of my wife and children. Except they probably will agree I’m a pretentious nit.
