I set out to do something simple



I decided to write a blog. My intent was to make it something simple in both design and content. However, it quickly became clear to me that I had decided to do this without having a topic to write about first. So this led me to ask the question, what the hell do I have to say that people might care about? Or, at least, care about enough to read more than the first paragraph before stopping to google pictures of animal penises. So, I listed off some potential options.

Option 1, I could write about graphic design. It’s what I do for a living and I’m ok at it. But then I remembered that while at one time I loved it, the years of being asked to produce websites for less than $300 had worn on me. And now I have an uncontrollable urge to do great harm to people who ask this of me.



Option 2, a blog about health and fitness might be good. I could post healthy food ideas and write other things like “How to live healthy so that one day technology will make you a cyborg that lives forever and also you can date robot chicks.” But this reminded me that I am a geek and that I know nothing of health and fitness. In fact, I think I would throw up if I ran for more than a minute.



Option 3, I could tell the world about how I have OCD… HARDCORE. But before I got started, I had to clean all the coat hangers in the closet. And this made me realize that writing about that side of myself, might be unleashing a bit too much of the crazy onto the internet… then I took two showers.



I started to think that I had something with option 4. Which was of course, my urge to take over the world. I could write about politics and exploit religion to gain followers. Eventually I would form my own country and rule with an iron fist. But then I remembered that my current forces consisted of the cat and myself.



So Instead of world domination, we took a nap on the couch… then he threw up in the kitchen and I stepped in it.

As I changed my sock and cleaned the floor, I decided something. A blog doesn’t really need to be about anything. It can just be a place for me to draw some stupid pictures and make nerdy references. That’ll be fun right?

So, I gave it a name that makes no sense but sounds a little badass. And that is how we got here.
