The Color of Fire

Hi again folks. What’s new with you? I feel kind of like a schizo writing here, what with not really anyone reading. What’s the point of posting this on the net? Maybe it’s just a blogging wet dream, to grow and establish a fanbase and then make millions based on these words that I take from other people. But I soldier on for you, my press-whore alter ego.

Went to a party last night, a friend of mine is leaving for Japan within the next week so she had a little going away bash. I’m still not sure exactly what she’s going to be doing there. I’m sure it will be great for her as she is an avid manga fan.

I’ve been thinking about getting the Periodical Informant back up and running. I have a couple of people lined up who may be interested in filling the days that I don’t have a new article, which would be nice. Also, a friend of mine is getting into photography and I think it’d be great if we could get pictures up on the site. I think it would lend the column at least slightly more respectability.

Mostly music news today, Trent Reznor released a new album for download Ghosts I-IV, you can read about it here and here. This album is entirely free from what I understand, though I don’t believe it has any vocals. I definitely want to check this out as Reznor is always doing something innovative with his music and apparently now even with the distribution of his music. This is very similar to what Radiohead did with their album In Rainbows, (which is unfortunately no longer available for active download) wherein customers selected their own price to pay for the album.

Other good news, and a tip of the hat to Ben for letting me on to this, Blind Melon is back together and touring with a new lead singer after a twelve year hiatus. That’s one hell of a layoff, but it sounds like they’re really hitting it off with the new singer so who am I to complain. No one, that’s who.

The last thing today, which I thought was kind of crazy as hell is apparently environmentalists are burning down “green homes”that aren’t environmentally friendly enough. C’mon guys, you’re gonna burn down somebody’s house because you think it’s fucking up the environment, I bet burning insulation does wonders for the ozone layer. What the hell is wrong with you people, go hug a damn tree and stop putting people’s lives in danger.

That’s all for today true believers. I’ll talk at you some more in the next gripping installment of whatever the hell I feel like calling it.

I've always considering "blogging" as it were to be a catharsis of sorts. A better way of understanding your feelings and beliefs. Explaining things as if the reader has no prior experience with the subject helps put things in perspective, and many times in my life, has helped me understand how and why I was wrong on so many occasions.

Anywho! Write for you, not for anyone else.
