I gots nothin'

>> Tuesday, September 09, 2008

Well, the title says it all, doesn't it? There are one or two things out there I don't much feel like writing about. Matter of fact, I'm not even sure I feel like writing at all, and that's a bitch. I mean, part of the point of this blog is to write. But not only that, there's also the matter of writing other things, the things I'm supposed to be writing or at least attempting to write.

But I gots nothin', and plenty of it.

So listen to The Walkabouts' haunting cover of Nick Cave's "The Loom Of The Land" and look at some pictures.

It's your blog, so if you don't want to write, then don't. Those are some really nice pictures though.

Thanks, Matt!

Part of the personal mission of the blog is to have an entry up every day. Theoretically, this means I would be writing every day, but that sort of doesn't always happen, so I cheat a bit and pre-post on days when I'm feeling fecund and creative. Or I cheat by doing a spamish entry.

Thing is, there are less productive things I could be doing than straining to produce some kind of entry. And, somewhat ironically, even a spamish entry like this one can be semi-productive: coming up with something to put in forced me to plug in the portable hard drive, boot up Digikam, and go through old pics again. I deleted a few, found a few I didn't hate too much that I hadn't posted (I was in a half-empty mood yesterday--on another day I might be unreasonably proud of some of these pics). It forced me to load the GIMP and see if I wanted to tweak any of the pics, which could have forced me to practice my photo editing (as it happens, when I decided to go with the barbed-wire photo in color, I decided to do all the pics in color, so the only alterations are adjusted white balance, scaling, cropping in the roses image, and conversion to jpeg for upload).

As opposed to surfing porn or playing a videogame; not that there's anything wrong with either of those hobbies, it's just that I force myself to semi-productivity, especially in comparison.

So, yes, (Shatner voice), I... must... make... myself... BLOG! It's good for me, even when I don't want to.

Today is (Never)Wednesday, so there will be a video up around five. Patti Smith, if I remember correctly, live version of "Pissing In A River," which is a majorly awesome song. Anything I do happen to write today will end up posting Thursday or Friday. Efficiency!

Thank you for commenting! Because of the evils of spam, comments on posts that are more than ten days old will go into a moderation queue, but I do check the queue and your comment will (most likely) be posted if it isn't spam.
