There and back again

With one week to go and still several things to do, I thought I'd start a blog to write about the whole experience that will be living in DC. Obviously, I don't plan to abandon LJ/DW or anything like it. After all, I have been posting here for the past five years, and the only reason I believe I managed to do that was sticking to the rule: post whatever and whenever you want.

As much as I love LJ, the fact remains that a blog and Live Journal are, at least in my mind, completely different things. This is a space I've created for myself, and in which I have written a lot of crap things over the years, with the one common denominator that I'm the one writing them. I've always believed that a blog needs a little more than that.

I may double post some of my posts on There and Back Again here, and I'll point out when I've done so.

Sleepy and tired as I am, I'll leave you with the link to the new blog, and the hope that it doesn't look too bad: Click!

PS: Just finished catching up with True Blood, and... wow. Amazing season so far! Also, holy frak, Battlestar Galactica has ridiculousy stolen my heart AND NOW I NEED ICONS.

You like bowling, don't you, Montag?

If you don't want a man unhappy politically, don't give him two sides to a question to worry him; give him one. Better yet, give him none. If the government is inefficient, topheavy, and tax-mad, better it be all those than that people worry over it. Peace, Montag. Give the people contests they win by remembering the words to more popular songs or the names of state capitals or how much corn Iowa grew last year. Cram them full of noncombustible data, chock them so damned full of 'facts' they feel stuffed, but absolutely 'brilliant' with information. Then they'll feel like they're thinking, they'll get a sense of motion without moving. And they'll be happy, because facts of that sort don't change. Don't give them any slippery stuff like philosophy or sociology to tie things up with. That way lies melancholy.
