Hiya! My name is Arthur. Welcome to my blog!
My purpose in this first post is to explain a little bit about myself, and to bring you up to date on my world, which is odd, and fundamentally different from the average person’s world.
Hmm. Obviously I need to define world a little, because I’m using it a little strangely. By ‘world’ I mean all of these: Frame of reference; culture; general point of view; a framework to judge and compare new experiences by; and the lenses through which one looks at the entirety of human experience.
My lenses are a little skewed. ^^
For example, I’m a member of political parties
which fall outside the norm, several fringe groups
(also outside the norm), have an unusual breadth and depth of interests in music, art, photography, psychology, cinematography, and civil rights, all from the standpoint of a layman, and all colored by my experiences in life, although not necessarily springing innate from those experiences. A side note here… as you can probably tell, I try to keep the behaviorist school of psychological thought as far away from my brain as possible – I wouldn’t trust those unimaginative engineers with a spanner wrench, much less my mind.
So with all of that said, I intend this blog to be pretty much all about my personal little slice of the macroverse, what I think is cool, nifty, appalling, or just plain interesting… such as this video taken from the world science festival of 2008, in NY, NY…
Which won’t for some reason embed here, so I’ll just link to it instead, because I’m lazy, and you can gosh darn click your mouse button one more time for the awesomeness.
I’ll be blogging about THAT a little more in my next post. For now, I leave you with warm well wishes (unless you’re one of those anti-everything conservatives who wishes I’d die, in which case, well, fuck you too then).
