I should blog more.

Actually, I have a longish, ranty thing about first-person shooter games to post once it's finished. Maybe the end of the week. Unfortunately, the things I could probably talk about most frequently are things that I am least interested in yammering about.

I don't want to talk about politics. It displeases me in general.

I don't want to talk about guns, because I don't want to give anyone the impression that I've gone completely off the deep end. (There will be a bit of that in the FPS post, if it goes up.)

I don't want to bore anybody with toys, and I'm growing less interested in where the stuff I'm actually collecting is going pretty much by the minute, anyway.

I could talk about books, but that's going to get back to politics (I'm reading Liberal Fascism: a good book and, I think, a solid argument, but one which cannot help but greatly upset at least half its potential readership by virtue of its thesis). I have a copy of Anathem to read whenever I get out of the current tome, though.

About other things, I'm just focused elsewhere lately.

I'm not really collecting pens at this time--still using them, just haven't purchased a new one in a while, and haven't seen or heard of anything lately that really interested me.

I stopped reading comics back in May, and I haven't bought more than a handful of CDs in the last two years that I thought were worth worrying about. (On that note, however, check out Fleet Foxes' eponymous album, and Thrice's Vheissu and Alchemy Index.)

I've only played a couple of videogames lately, I don't watch much TV, and I mostly keep to myself. People, I am just not very exciting.

If you really must keep track, however, and don't already know, I am using Twitter.

Happy New Year. 
2009.01.01 03:27 - Guns, Miscellanea, Site/Meta
I'll have a post or two kvetching about gun cleaning later in the day. Hopefully will have a more detailed set of notes about last Saturday's range trip late this week or early next week. I believe that there are a very few pictures, so those will probably get added once I've got them.

I think my only resolution for the New Year is probably to find something other than guns to talk about here. I hear there are these videogame things that might be interesting. May something other stuff, too. We shall see.

In the meantime, I should really go to bed.

Doing some poking around in the blog 
2008.12.02 09:37 - Guns, M1 Garand, Magpul Masada/Bushmaster ACR, Site/Meta
Tagged all the Masada/ACR-related posts with an appropriate tag, and ditto for the M1 Garand posts. While I was at it, I also tagged the ACR posts with Internet Stupidity and several of the Garand ones with Zombie Preparedness.

I'm still looking forward to the ACR, mind. But some of my agitation comes from too much Internet.

Whoops!

This is not correct, as checking the the CMP's eligibility requirements quickly reveals. Although it is no longer necessary to be a competitive shooter, it is still necessary to have some documentation indicating that you know your way around a gun.

Dang. Well, half-way there. Just have to see whether a C&R or CCW license is a better choice, I guess.
