Out with the old

In the beginning I thought blogging on bullshit would be fun. For the most part it was. Still, I’ve gotten sick of it. Puking sick.

Maybe it’s too easy. I doubt that’s it, because I’m lazy, and easy is right up my alley. Politicians and celebrities provide endless fodder for smart-ass posts. It’s gotten old though, and fast.

It’s time for a change. My blogging show is moving to Outskirts of Reality. It’s in the neighborhood, right here on WordPress.com. Hopefully it’ll be different. Different from Age of BS and different from other blogs. It’ll be more personal by design.

Politics, and the news in general, while not off limits, are way down on the list of things I’ll focus on. The reason is simple — I don’t know (what the answers are). Today I feel it’s a waste of time to post on, or even attempt to keep up with, what the mainstream media deems newsworthy.

Plan A is to get back to frying my fish. It’ll be bits of my past and present stinking up the grease at Outskirts. If you’re hungry, drop by for a bite. Hopefully I’ll serve up something tasty from time to time.

Around WordPress.com – 12/5/06

Here are a few posts from around WordPress.com.  I’m linking to them because I enjoyed reading them and thought maybe somebody else would too. They aren’t in any order, other than how they popped up in my aggregator , or the order I found them via their tags.

That I liked something doesn’t mean I agree with it, believe it, or anything else. It just means I liked it.

Is Britain a police state?

I ran across a fascinating post at The Big Picture about the surveillance society in Britain. Apparently Britain is well on its way to becoming a police state. Could the same thing happen here in the US? It’s inevitable if the politicians get their way. Power is their drug and there’s never enough of it.
