First thing is, on a blog that has my own name stamped right on it, I should probably ditch the politics and just keep it puppies and rainbows here, but for me, politics is like a crack pipe, I might be able to put it down for a bit, but it always seems to end up calling me back.
What I don’t get is why people get so angry over seeing things differently. Isn’t that what makes life interesting? I don’t hate liberals, in fact, in a lot of ways, liberals are more interesting than conservatives to me because discussing politics with someone who agrees with you is kind of . . . boring.
Beyond the politics, I’m into programming, my little homespun programs have maybe 1/2 million downloads across the Internet, I dig music and songwriting, especially the lyrical side of it, and I’m pretty well read for a guy who went to music school instead of college. I’m also very interested in people who exhibit anti-social and psychotic behavior. I guess I’m intrigued by chaos, I’m intrigued by behavior which seemingly has no explanation.
What I enjoy more than anything right now though, is writing. I’m a confirmed audiobook addict and I listen to enough different writers that if I’m plagiarizing, I do it from enough different sources that it can’t really be traced to one specific source. There’s a quote from T.S. Elliot, “Immature poets imitate; mature poets steal; bad poets deface what they take, and good poets make it into something better, or at least something different.” I hope to have done a little of the latter when all is said and done.
So that’s me in a nutshell. Welcome to the blog, hope you find some things to comment on and keep you coming back.
