Specifically, I would like to thank the following:
My dear friend Jim at Wookified productions for bugging me for enough years to actually get off my ass and start one of these things. Also, I stole nearly every idea for the layout of my site from him.
Fresh Pepper for the idea of naming posts with song lyrics, though I am just as likely to use movie quotes or lines from books.
Julia, the former Tequila Mockingbird, whose writing reminded me of something that I loved to do, only forgotten how.
Finally, the Insider, without whom this site would never have been possible, for she constructed it to the specifications of my Neo-Luddite ass.
Generally, I just want to say that if this site, in either form, content or turn of phrase, bears any resemblance to any of the blogs that I read regularly or, if some of the ideas found here sound familiar to those of Freidrich Nietzsche, Karl Marx, Thomas Malthus, Thomas Paine, Ivan Illich, Uncle Ted, Uncle Joe, the Greek Tragedians, Bill Hicks, Sam Kinison, George Carlin, and whoever I am forgetting at this time; or any of the, literally, thousands of books that I have read in my life, then what can I say? I am an amalgam of everything that I have ever come into contact with over the course of my lifetime. I have sucked the marrow from the bones of the best.
This is not to say that I willl ever knowingly take content from someone else’s site, book or body of work. I’m all about citing my sources. Anything that I do borrow will be dutifully linked and attributed to its author. If anyone ever notices differently, then call me on my shit . All I ask in return is that if someone ever sees something here that they like, they return the same courtesy.
If you steal from me, believe me when I say that I will find you.
I do have a habit of quoting movie lines and song lyrics. I won’t attribute these, as it will get tedious. So suck it up, buttercup.
The stories found here from time to time may be changed to protect the guilty, shield the (to varying degrees) innocent and, quite frankly, to make me look better.
Finally, if you have a problem with profanity or are the sort that offends easily then, by all means, get the fuck out – it’s not safe for you here.
