Resurrection

December 1, 2020 § 2 Comments

I have to say I didn’t mean to allow this blog to die. To explain, around the time I stopped updating here, I began writing for The Typescript, an on-line journal of culture, news, and commentary that I began with an old friend from graduate school, Matthew Friedman, and a friend of his, Theresa Smalec. We’ve worked hard to grow the magazine and our work is starting to pay off.

I write commentary on politics, culture, and history there, and I am also the Music Editor, and I’ve been working on building up our presence in the indie music world. We’ve been lucky to develop good working relationships with a few PR firms in New York City and London, as well as a few record labels in Canada, the US, and the UK. And we’ve also developed relationships with some indie artists directly. We publish singles/video reviews every Monday, usually two of them, plus ep and long player reviews Tuesday and Thursday, and we run a review of a Classic album on Friday. I have a stable of capable and talented writers and, well, I’m kind of proud of what we’ve done there.

So that has taken up a lot of my extra time. And so this site has gone dormant. I have, however, begun writing a second book and I have plans for at least one more book brewing in the back of my head. And there is a lot going in the world that I don’t think necessarily fits on Typescript that I’d like to start working out here.

My original plan when I created this site away back around 2010 was that it would be a place I work out research ideas and questions, and ponder issues in the world around me. I never really expected anyone to read this blog, and yet, people do. I have been surprised and gratified by the fact that things I’ve written here over the years have generated so many comments in the past year.

So, I hope I can get this blog back to at least a semi-regular posting schedule in the next few weeks.

  • I too abandoned my site due to research after a DNA test plus some serious Genealogy work. It feels good know knowing the Truth and not falling under a racial tag placed upon me by the United States. It’s brought both pain and pride about learning about being an American Aborignee. Made me overstand we all need to start lining in truth not lies. Welcome back.
