The Pacific Northwest! Or: Winter is Coming…

Those who know me well know of my passion for a certain Max McDaniel, now further augmented by the zest that is Moorea Seal. (The irony, of course, is that Max and Moorea are 2 of the 6-8 of you who might read this.) Max and Moorea live in Seattle, to which I’d never been before May of this year. My first encounter with Seattle was enough to know that I love the city, and my second visit only strengthened that fondness. For some reason I don’t yet understand, I’ve had difficulty expressing exactly why I’m infatuated with Seattle. I can articulate some of it though, I suppose: it has both big-city appeal and smaller-town comfort. I felt comfortable in my own skin in Seattle, as if I were totally in my element.

Back to our scheduled programming…

Well here we are; I made good on my promise to take a very long time in getting anything posted.  In the (unlikely) event that you visited during the extended absence, you may have noticed that there is a difference in the motif and title of this blog.  It is now quite minimal, and provides a space for one of my favorite words: warbling. I have some plans for posts, mainly on books I’ve been reading and albums I’ve heard recently.  If you didn’t know, I had a music review project that I neglected: One by One Archive. I intend to continue that project here, expanding it to a general discussion of whatever media I’ve recently consumed and found interesting. For instance: Sigur Rós – Inni Inni is the soon-to-be-released live record from Iceland’s Sigur Rós.  I’ve pre-ordered the blu-ray/cd combo box and am eagerly anticipating its arrival, but a

Another First

So it begins.   Another foray into the blogosphere, but this time with a variety of motives. I would like to improve my css-fu as well as my php-fu, so I intend to fully build my own WordPress theme from the ground up. This, of course, takes a back seat to my day job, which is why this whole process is taking so long. That being said, I fully intend to finish this project, but I’m not giving myself a deadline. I see friends of mine with incredible design/code chops and I want to develop my own stuff. Of course, once the design is finished the blog will need content, will it not? That being the case, I’ve decided that the “substance” of this exercise will be collected ramblings covering anything and everything current. A real blog, if you will. Music, movies, food, drink, games, books and everything under the
