So then, a few more comments, a few more posts, some secrets revealed before I walk away for good. (Please don't read anything heavy into that statement; I'm simply referring to walking away from this project -- and it's likely it will only be a temporary absence, at that.) Rather than meander too much in one post, I'll stop here, and continue in my next post.
I will not be jumping off any buildings, though I've (jestingly) mentioned the consideration to my girlfriend so often that it's become not only inappropriate but (perhaps) psychologically damaging. I've simply had enough of this experiment, or at least this aspect of the project, for the time being. Perhaps tomorrow I'll change my mind. Perhaps tomorrow I'll be writing a novel, right here. Perhaps I'll be posting new audio recordings -- my "Joe Frank thing". Perhaps I'll be posting more mundane video, my shabby avante-gardism -- watch out, Orson Wells! (Or was it Welles? I always forget.)
Then again, perhaps you'll never hear from me again. Not here, anyway. I've some other projects in mind: The tools have been purchased, the parts have been collected. I've simply got to begin building. Something That Happened is a story that will continue -- somewhere, if not here -- but before I report any more of the tale here or somewhere or anywhere, I've got to build, elsewhere.
Those of you who have participated: Thank you. I wish I had more to give you -- better parting words, a promise of some sort, a consolation prize. Some cookies and milk. A handjob; a tongue performing the proper maneuverings. I do have this, however, which should make it easier for you to say goodbye: I never really liked you. There, doesn't that make it easier for you to kiss this project goodbye? Doesn't that make it easier for you to unsubscribe? Honestly, though, I may have been lying again, right when I said that mean thing there. I mean, it's likely that I really wish you'd stay tuned and/or subscribed -- at least until you're sure I won't be back around.
I once posted, in this space (this right column), the following:
If I had friends they would be listed here
That particular bit o' text, that silly and idiotic phrase, was repeated a dozen or two dozen or so times and was intended to be temporary. I had been working on a project -- a new layout for this blog -- and had intended for that text to be placeholder content. That is, the text was supposed to temporarily replace the content that had previously occupied this column (which was a list of links to friends -- that is, other blogs and web sites I linked to). I didn't know what content I was going to place into that (this) space, so I placed a bunch of duplicate phrases here as a placeholder so that I would remember to fill in this space again later.
At the same time, I thought I was being cute with the heading:
NEW & IMPROVED FRIENDS!
The fact remains: I still don't know what content to put here,
in this column. Links again? Pictures? Video? Audio?
Ads? Oh, hell no! It hasn't come to me yet, but I'm sure it will eventually, and when it does it'll come quick and (as usual) with consequences.
