Any Old Post

This statement has no significance.

The above statement was the best I could do in the moment. My friend Simon Jones, who set this blog up for me, asked me to write something in the blog entry field, so that he could make sure everything was technically kosher. Immediately I felt an intense amount of pressure as this was going to be my launch into the blogospehere, and thus I felt it had to be expressive of who I am (or at least of who I think I am). Thus I was wanting to write something that was philosophical without being too arcane, profound without being too pretentious, humorous without being sophomoric, literary without being too high-brow, cool without giving the appearance of being concerned about being cool, and good looking without being too good looking (this latter one is difficult). Adding to this pressure I imagined that Simon probably didn’t care much about what I wrote in this instance, and I’m sure he didn’t want to wait long while I tried to compose something extraordinary. And so, under this two-fold pressure, which gained exponential weight with each passing second, I pulled out the above statement. Where I pulled this statement from I am not going to share, as I believe that some things ought to remain private.

    And as statements go, I think it was actually quite telling of our modern society and the throw away ‘buy now pay later’ culture we live in 😉

    So welcome to the blogospehere Anthony! I’ve been playing around a little with the themes that word press has to offer and you may have already noticed that I loaded you up with a whole bunch already.

    I’ll try to catch up with you on IM, in the meantime add my IM name to you list (it’s poshcoffee by the way), that way I’ll be able to see you when you’re online.
