Okay, this blog is gonna happen.  Sure, it’s having a pretty slow start, but it’s all about nurturing and patience before something really grows and takes off, right?

Extended metaphors aside, I’m doing some blog research and kind of trying to decide where to take this blogging business.  It’ll take me a while, but hang with me, and I’ll do my best to figure it out.

For now, some spliced-together thoughts:

—-
I wish there was a punctuation mark that came between the period(.) and the exclamation point(!).<—[period used for lack of better punctuation]  I often find myself writing something online and finding a period making my thought seem too harsh and an exclamation too eccentric (and generally tool-ish).

Example #1:  “It’s hard for me to speak with you when you go offline so quickly.”
“It’s hard for me to speak with you when you go offline so quickly!”

Example #2:  “You are a very large baked potato.”
“You are a very large baked potato!”

Those examples are terrible (perhaps I will change them when I inevitably stumble upon a couple real-life examples in the coming days), but you see my dilemma here?  Conveying emotion online is kind of obnoxious.  Sort of the reason I’ve been off AIM for the past month-ish.

I can’t believe I didn’t know David Bowie played Andy Warhol in the film ‘Basquiat.’  Slash I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to see that movie.  Aside from the part where Warhol dies (I could’ve done without the Basquiat-watching-old-videos-and-crying montage), it’s a fascinating movie – especially considering the fact that the director, Julian Schnabel, was a prominent artist at the same time as Basquiat.  I’ve always meant to see Schnabel’s stuff (the directing stuff that is), but didn’t do it until today.  I’m still turning it over in my mind, but I think I like it.

Did you know Girl Talk is just a mash-up of other songs/beats?  I’m kind of digging it.
