[sticky post] Spring Cleaning

I'm cleaning out my friends lists. If I accidentally clean you out and you want to stay in, do drop me a note: malcolm.gin@gmail.com.

Hi.

I may have returned. Too soon to tell. I understand LJ's getting a resurgence of late, and tbh, Facebook is getting weird with the public posts and comments drawing all sorts of chuckleheads and other strangers into the mix. And Twitter is so... ephemeral and public and weird. And my blog is sort of unfulfilling except as a personal journal, a thing at which it excels.

I can't remember if I updated friends lists post the breakup with Hanne, and you can bet your ass I need to if I haven't already. So feel free to drop me if you can't stand me and I'll do the same over here.

Dreamwidth

I'm starting to post a daily journal at Dreamwidth.

If you like, you can create an account there or let me know what yours already is and I'll add you to what I can. Most of it is going to be public with some private entries.

I think I need to talk and think, and I invite you to share it with me.

Look and feel and meta updates

    Done:

    • Updated my Wordpress theme back to the original one I liked, Atahualpa.
    • Reorganized the info in this blog’s About pages to make them easier for me to manage.
    • Updated my Google Profile information to update the changed links to my profiles for PSN and XBox Live gaming networks.

    Planned:

    • Install a new plugin to cross-post teasers from this blog to LJ AND Dreamwidth.
      I think because friends have largely moved to Dreamwidth I may do so as well, as little as I keep up at all. I’ll keep up with the very select few folks I read on LJ now via e-mail notifications.
    • I need to help Hanne configure her blog the way she wants to, too.

    Toxic covers

    I spent my morning news reading/email reading/catchup time quickly putting together a list of YouTube links for one of my favorite trashy Britney songs, Toxic.

    Brilliant

    Sinfest is a webcomic that’s not safe for anyone really. But it’s cutesy and it’s sometimes brilliant.

    Like this one (yes I’m reading the back-strips).

    Work

    Works’ been engaging and hard. Thought I’d write a little bit about it since my Mom’s been asking.

    Do you know where your towel is?

    Were you there?

    I started celebrating Lilac day first, so that’s where my loyalty lies.

    DJ Hero on sale at Toys R Us

    So yeah, I’m shilling, I guess, but this is an advisory for friends I know may be interested.

    Sale link (applies to physical stores too). The sale price is US$50 off, which means $49.99 for a single turntable kit, and applies to Wii, XBox 360 and PS3 models. Also not as well advertised is that the 2-turntable kit is selling for $90 (instead of $120). Sale ends 4/17/2010.

    Various updates

    Still busy at work, still responsible for things.

    Non-work is also busy but certainly interesting and rewarding. Mostly I am helping out Hanne as she works on her cooking/catering side-business. Which is interesting, even if it doesn’t pay well. :)
