AMFC and the Blogging Wall
Air to the Mu'Fuckin' Conditioning. It's gettin' hot in here, up in my 3rd floor perch in Central Square. Like 97 degrees hot. After suffering through another hot night, faced with the prospect of baking here all day with my toasty little laptop underneath my hands, I broke down and busted out the AC. Joy. Sweet delicious coolness. I'm enjoying it while I can because I'd say the odds on Area 4 getting a blackout this evening have to be at about 2 to 3. Fuck you, NStar, fuck you.
That's all there is to say about AC in my post about AC, which brings me to part II of this post: I think I'm hitting a blogging wall. There are plenty of things I can bitch about in the sports world, but the VTK is not strictly about sports and some of my readership gets a little testy when I get too sporty. I haven't had any good crackpot theories or epic stories of drunken debauchery lately. I pass funny little clips along when I find them and think they're VTKworthy, but a couple of my sources have dried up in that department (and one now has his own blog for his web finds) and I don't seem to have as much time to surf for pointlessness/creepiness as you would think a self-employed artist who gets up between 8:30 and 10:30 in the AM would have. I could post some art, but the website's right there to your right and I don't want to post too much on the BCSDDB (on page 134, btw). I saw an interesting sketchblog yesterday. Maybe I'll do some of that. One of the original ideas of this blog was to have a place to put stuff that I didn't necessarily want on the dannolan.com site. I was thinking about political cartooning back then and I did a couple but lost interest. Which is also why there haven't been too many posts of a political nature - I've been generally uninterested in politics recently. I was going to whip one up on savedarfur.org and FidelityOutofSudan about my former employer, but ... but what. why wouldn't I post about that? because I'm a privileged apathetic white american? I don't know why. But there are the links. Check them out and make your voice heard like I did. I guess I felt that in order to post, I would have to research more than I have and give an exhaustively succinct synopsis of the issues and apparently I'm a lazy privileged apathetic white american. Clearly now I'm going to have to do that since I've written it out loud and have chastised myself publicly. And clearly I can add asshole to that list of words describing myself since I'm whining about doing that. And now I'm going to have to erase all this out of embarrassment. But you haven't written a post about Darfur on your blog either, so I don't feel that bad.
anyway, point being: what to blog, what to blog...
