The [Ninja Turtles] henchmen Bebop and Rocksteady have hijacked the musical genres for us just like the Lone Ranger hijacked the William Tell Overture for our parents.

Latest stuff

My head is all in a whirl. This last month I have just been absorbing all kinds of random information and have been reading all sorts of, mostly, unrelated things. This ranges from: history of California's Gold Rush, Antarctic exploration, Mieville's Perdito Street Station, lots of blogs, Gunther Grass's Crabwalk, Hornsby's How to be Good, and Gao Xingjian's Soul Mountain.

I think I have gotten into the "too much information" mode. I need to try and start doing analyses and that's only going to happen if I start writing. So I am giving myself this week to finish these up and then I will try and start writing some stuff. Not that it will be anything great but that I will at least fill up some screen space with sprawling text of many kinds.

I will probably start sooner because, well, because I'm not really very patient. I think I might have a candidate for another contributor too. We shall see. I think that would help vastly because me spouting off about stuff, well, that's not even what *I* had intended for this thing much less something I imagine anyone else would be interested in reading. Ahh well, such is life.

I know it isn't all about me, but I don't think I am good enough for your blog, man.
