Excuse me while I type this out
As though saying this in any way explains my hiatus, blogs are impossibly stupid. People get into the habit of reading or writing something regularly, and then it seems like they become slaves to the demand of the technological ubiquity. They stop living life because they get caught up in documenting it instead. I used to think blogs were the height of self-indulgent shallowness, then Twitter came along and made blogs look downright respectable. Still, that doesn't mean I feel obliged to follow a regular schedule. Nobody's paying me for a weekly column, so you get what you get. Hopefully that means you get more than just another talking head that needs to fill 4 column inches with anything or the 30 minutes of nightly “news”.
