Okay, here's the deal: Blogger has been having problems with their counters as of late, specifically with those blogs marked as having adult content. Now, this particular blog was marked as adult content since it is written as a train of thought, including all the rotten language that flows through my head constantly :) As a result, I marked it adult for that, not for having pornographic photos all over the place. So, simply put, be aware that there is language on this blogsite, and if you are offended don't bother complaining because I wrote this so that you'd know it before reading, and it is your fault if you don't believe me and decide to possibly get offended anyway. If language of a vulgar nature might make you upset, go read something by Disney.


Digging Up Memories

I just finished writing another post for my autobiographical blog, which you can access following the link provided.  I am discovering that I remember a lot more about my formative years than I thought I did.  As I've been writing, I have been going to specific memories that I want to relate, and then thinking about the specifics of those memories is leading me to remember other really sharp images that I then want to relate as well.  It may seem incredible, but for some random guy who grew up in the Greater Toronto Area, I really do have a shitload that has happened to me over the years.

The problem now is that a lot of the stuff I'm accidentally accessing is stuff that depresses me.

Now, my concern is not whether I can get the stuff out onto the computer, or even how terrible it is going to make me feel delving into the shit, but whether the autobiography blog is going to degenerate into the most depressing blog on the internet.  I'm fucking serious.  The more I think about how things progressed, and the more I think about what i should have had but didn't...I'm thinking that if it is bumming me out, just how bad is it going to be for people reading it?

And my biggest problem with the whole thing is that I'm not getting any feedback from anyone I don't already know.  My cousin has dropped a line here and there about certain of my posts across my multiple blogs, as has my wife (though her spelling is killing me because I can't go in and edit what she's posted in the comments section - she isn't as bad a speller as it seems, she just doesn't have the habit of checking her work before sending it), and of course my roommate Scott tells me what he thinks - trouble is, they know me.  Sure, they don't know all the stuff I'm writing, or even half of it, but they know me and I can't help but assume their words are somewhat biased.  What I'm hoping for is that someone who has followed me on Twitter because of an article on my gaming blog, or movie blog, or television blog, actually decides to go to the autobiography blogsite and reads it, and then has something to say.  Andi has already said that people aren't likely to comment on an autobiographical site simply due to it being my personal experiences and nobody can have an opinion on personal history in the same way they can have an opinion about an opinion.  I just hope nobody thinks it sucks.

I do hope people from Twitter are reading all the blogs, not just the ones that they are likely following me as a result of.  It would be great to know that E! Online cares about the person writing the movie blog rather than just the movie blog itself.  I guess time will tell.

Whatever the reason, I do hope my Good Readers stick with me over the coming years (no, I'm not kidding) as I explore the present here, the past there, and entertainment at the other three.  As long as what I write has a wee audience, I'll keep doing what I'm doing.  Even though some of the sites have a long wait between posts, don't worry:  When I have something to say, I'll say it.  Until next time, take care all!

Whoops, one last thing:  I have now gone over each and every blog and added a list of links to the right-hand side to allow anyone visiting ANY of my blogs the ability to see where I've posted most recently, how recently, and what the title of the most recent post is.  As a result, I will no longer be dropping by this blog in order to simply say "Hey, new blog over here" and nought else.  All you have to do is link to any one of my sites, and they'll provide you with up to date information on my most recent posts no matter where they were posted.  Hope this makes things easier for everyone; I know it makes it easier for me.
