No Title

Soon we are going to the last David Ryan Harris Social at Smith’s Olde
Bar. He’s moving to L.A. this month. Very sad, I’ve been a fan of his
solo and in various bands since I was 20.

No Title

For some reason, today is like a week of Mondays all rolled
together. My god, I did not want to get up and go to work today.

One of the things I am strongly resisting in this weblog is to be
driven by “blog envy.” I read Doc
Searls weblog
every day, pretty
much, and he often points to blogs and says “This guy is a heavy
hitter” or “Insightful blog here.” I really am avoiding pandering to
what I think other bloggers want to see. As much as I would like Doc
to think I’m a heavy hitter, that’s not a goal in and of itself and
that shouldn’t address what I do. If I want to talk about the
physio-mechanical issues of wearing wrestling boots, that’s what I
should do. Although I have political and social issues I want to talk
about here, for the most part I haven’t gotten there yet. This is
predominantly a time issue, as to do them justice I need some
uninterrupted cycles. Really, if I had those, I should be putting them
towards finishing “the book that would not end”. Soon enough, though,
soon enough.

I got the Michelle Malone
e-mail newsletter today, and she comes very close to concisely
enumerating my political philosophy when she says “People first, money
second. Remember that and tell your politicians.”
