I post internet twaddle 5 days a week. I mean, I post to twitter pretty much every hour of every day, ever, but I post actual, worked at, pre-planned, 'content' to the internet 5 days a week. I know!
I've become pretty adept at sticking to a regular schedule; I know I missed one
last week but it was the first time in ages and I only missed it because I have
a li... hahah joke, I only missed because while I had written something it just seemed
rubbish to me, no matter how many times I rewrote it, so I gave up. It'll be up
this week, for definite. Probably still rubbish, but you know...
Anyway, the current schedule is as follows:
This blog. This one here. Musings of a Nobody. MoaN. Interesting fact (not
really), but I didn't make the connection between the initials of the blog
title, and the act of complaining, until long after I chose said title; wasn't
planned at all. I'm pretty sure it was some kind of lesser deity; most likely
the God of Meaningless Coincidences, I should think; playing silly beggars with
my head. Yeah, that's definitely what happened.
The main focus of MoaN is, ostensibly, my life. More specifically, the story of
my life, from my very earliest memories, to the present day, in roughly
chronological order. It's proven cathartic, but also really really difficult,
on account of how my memory is really really shit. I persevere though.
Of course it's not just about my past. This is where I come when I feel
compelled to post a knee jerk, irrational rant about something I'm completely
unqualified to have an opinion on; it's where I come on the rare occasions I
want to join in a short lived internet meme; and now, it's where I come when I
want to make people, who may read one or two things of mine, aware of exactly
what I do and when. Because I'm a view-whore.
Tuesday is my day for making not very funny jokes about soap operas on an episode by episode basis. I say soap operas, it's just the one; Dark
Shadows is it's name, and it's actually pretty good (but don't tell
anyone I said that).
The plan was to do two soaps, and alternate between them on Tuesdays
and Thursdays. This is still the plan, but it won't happen until the
new year, and it won't be originally announced Prisoner: Cell Block H.
It seems that there are considerably more fantasy/sci-fi tinged soap
operas than I had first thought, so in sticking with them I'll be
adding either Strange
Paradise or Passions to the blog on Thursdays. I haven't decided which
yet; if you have a preference feel free to let me know.
For now though, it's just Dark Shadows, and it's just Tuesday.
Wednesday is the day I talk about sci-fi and fantasy television mostly, and occasionally about my relationship with it.
Full of spoilers, doesn't know whether it wants to be serious or
piss-takey and can't decide between being a discussion of the behind
the scenes aspects, straight reviews, or just waffle. Some would call
it wildly inconsistent, I call it providing something for everyone. And
if nothing else, there's usually a picture of a hot actor or actress.
I write about stories I've read on my untitled blog about stories I've read.
Here I attempt to analyse books and comics in my own instantly
recognisable style, which blends a desire to seem intelligent and an
air of pretension with a limited vocabulary and insights gleaned from
one chapter of a 'how to write' book that I vaguely remember skimming
And that just leaves Saturday
On Saturday I post grainy videos made on an incredibly cheap camera to youtube. Often they are my thoughts on having watched a shit show for
month, other times they are of me reading Mr Men books, and still other
times they are of me just waffling rubbish. I call those last, my all
conquering assault on the interwebs. Because I'm deluded.
So there you have it. My internet
schedule. I'd say I hope you check out all the stuff I mentioned, but
I'm not a totally deluded fool and I know you have lives to lead, so
I'll just say I'd love it if you could give one new thing a try. These
things take a lot of time, and while I mostly do it for the love of it I'm not gonna lie to you, a few more readers/viewers would be nice
too. (I'm well aware there's much better stuff out there than mine, so I'm not holding out much hope, but allow me the fantasy that this might work, ok? Cheers)
Next week on here it'll be back to me talking about my real life. And when that happens, you'll be wishing I was still waffling about the internet.
