Weekend Music: Suzanne

Video

I’d say this video is nearly as old as I am. I love it.

Just sitting around today and thinking about blogging projects for next year. My gaming post from Monday got me thinking about Morrowind. That game will be 15 years old in 2017, and it’s held up better than any other game from the early 2000’s I can think of.

I’ve got the pc version with the two expansion packs and 50 or 60 GB worth of mods, including a few simple ones I made myself, stashed away. I’m thinking I might set up a character and play the character to maximum level, blogging the whole thing with copious screenshots and funny captions as I go.

The problem is, I don’t have a computer I’m comfortable installing Morrowind and a bunch of community-made mods on at the moment. I figure by January or February, though, I’ll be able to afford a desktop that will run it just fine and the family can use the desktop for other things when I’m otherwise occupied.

I’m thinking this could be good, would take so long I could finish it up just as Morrowind turns 15 years old, and if I make the thing entertaining enough, readers wouldn’t necessarily need to know much about Morrowind to enjoy it.

What about that?

I’m doing my best to get back into the swing of blogging, and things are much better for me now than they’ve been since July. But the offline stuff just won’t quit, so I’m taking it slowly. I don’t want to jump back in with both feet and start posting every day until I am sure I can sustain that level of activity for several months.

Happy Weekend!

I’m Still Alive

Video

Seems like a good Weekend music post for a week in which we went four days without posting. That’s never happened. Even that time I officially shuttered the blog to smother some nasty business, we didn’t go that long.

First time for everything, I guess.

Anyway, I’m still about — just haven’t been on the internet much for a couple of weeks.

I let the contributors know this several days ago, and I see no reason not to let the rest of you in on it now. As many of you know, October-December is planning season for me. It’s the time of year when I start thinking about what my blogging is going to look like come January and do whatever redesign, etc. I feel is necessary.

We’re about a month away from the two-year anniversary of this blog. I’m evaluating my position and trying to decide whether to go a third year with it. If I do, we’ll probably have two off-days built in. If not, I’ll be doing some other blogging thing.

Either way, I’ve no plans to quit blogging, nor to lose touch with the friends I’ve made since I started this little experiment.

Happy weekend!

Cry Havoc and Let Slip the Dogs of War!

No comics today šŸ˜¦

I figure that having comics every Wednesday for almost two years gets us a little leeway. I’m about to mouth off here, people. You can endure a monologue from me, or you can find yourself another blog to read. This is where we are.

So, first. We’ve not been posting as often as we would like to post lately.

Second, I haven’t been around to answer comments.

Third, this blog isĀ absolutely not going away.

A year ago, more or less, I made this blog a political no-go zone. I am considering lifting that restriction and allowing contributors to speak their political minds on this blog.

Just so you know, this here pop culture blog is supported by a huge gaggle of feminists and other left-leaning people.

What if we decide to bring the politics back onto this blog? Slowly, carefully, and liberally? What about that?

Leave us a comment, if you have an opinion.

And have a video!
