Hello! And welcome (back) to SIMPLY PASSING THROUGH HISTORY, called the “best/most-worthwhile/most necessary-toward-mankind’s-survival blog on the interwebs” by Nick Doll.
First off, fair warning: I don’t exactly understand what “Manifesto” means, but ANCHORMAN: WAKE UP RON BURGUNDY leads me to believe it is some set of rules that will dictate my future actions; in this case relating to the art (oh, yes, it’s an art) of blogging.
Several years ago, when I was still living in Hollywood (okay, Los Angeles… though it was officially ”West Hollywood” [and annoyingly called WeHo]) and working at the Barnes and Noble on Pico Blvd (which no longer exists. what can I say? I was indispensable.), I started blogging… daily.
Sometimes those blogs were things of beauty, like my Disneyland conspiracy theories or my longtime war with my arch-nemesis, Panda Express fortune cookies, or my defense of Doc Ock . Other times, they were lazy, like when I wrote a blog about why I was watching S.W.A.T. instead of writing a longer post. And sometimes, I pushed the boundaries of what was appropriate, like my last blog post in which I really gave it to Liam Neeson’s deceased wife.
This new blog will hopefully look a lot like the last one, only this time hopefully I will make it the entire year. Rather, hopefully I will post one blog a day until the world ends on 12/21/12. (Who am I kidding? We all know I never finish projects I set out to complete – see Web Series, Podcast [Oh, that will happen in 2012!], all my screenplays, and going all the way with a woman).
Sometimes my blogs will be lengthy, sometimes they will be hilarious, sometimes they will offend, sometimes they will be mundane, and sometimes they may be less than a paragraph long. They will nearly all be geeky, because in 2011 I finally came to except what I am inside: a raging geek. I just hope to blog everyday until 2013.
And for those smart asses out there (my ass only has an IQ of 69) who notice that this entry was posted on January 2nd, 2012, don’t forget my “sleep cycle” rule! If I wake up on the 1st and don’t post till after midnight, I still count it as a post for the 1st because I am still awake from waking up on the 1st. The 2nd doesn’t start for me until I return to bed and awaken tomorrow morning.
Anyway if you look forward to tales of geekiness, comic books, working at NBC & interning in Hollywood, obsessing over movies, ridiculous rants and conspiracy theories, please join me every day at www.SimplyPassingThroughHistory.com.
If you’re still not sure what you’re in for, please visit the old iteration of SIMPLY PASSING THROUGH HISTORY by clicking HERE (that’s right, all those underlined sentences were links! [Why didn't your smart ass with the 140 tell you that?]).
I’ll try to be less crude that before, but I can’t help but make the tasteless joke every blog or two… sowwy.
So, cum (see? tasteless, but it makes me chuckle all the same) with me, my digital friends, as we simply pass through history together!
