Three Quartered

Well, folks, here we are at post #75, nearly eleven months after the creation of the blog. As of now, it's been a fun ride; thank you to all you readers for answering back and giving me a reason to write that goes beyond self-fulfillment. That said, let's look back on some selections from the previous quarter of posts:


~*Half Hundred~ The second quarterly post.

~*Jealousy, Lily, Ballroom, Rose~ Another painting poem, as well as a brief writeup (and link) on jealousy in the arts.

~*A Reflection on "A Reflection on..."~ The original and final drafts side to side- a terrible poem next to a rather good one.

~*Typo(logy/graphy)~ A look at typology tests and unique typography in poetry. The article features e.e. cummings and Jason Sanford, among others.

~*TAKS- Tertiary Abomination of Kayaks and Snails~ A brief criticism of the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills, followed up by a link to a very interesting article on energy conservation in Japan.

~*Si(tes/ght)~ Are you losing your eyesight? If not, I certainly hope you begin sometime in your life. Why? Well...

~*Songs (and Singer[s]) of Innocence~ A look at William Blake's wonderful "Songs of Innocence" series, as well as a couple poems in my own "Songs of Innocence" (a tentative title for the series).

~*Low and High: What *is* Art, Anyhow?~ Tattoing. Sculpture. Game design. Music. Comic strips. Poetry. Really, though, what *is* art?


Only twenty-five more posts 'til 100. Exciting, isn't it? Take care 'til next,

What happened to your blog?

It's really strange... I went to the HTML, added a few links, and saved; this is the result. Perhaps my rather old HTML format (I haven't updated it for months) is no longer compatible. Anyhow, now would be a good time to switch to the new blogger. I simply haven't gotten around to it since I'm spending 13-14 hrs. a day at choir camp right now.

I am still using the old blogger format myself.

Well, it's fixed; I actually did end up sticking with the old Blogger. Better yet, this problem encouraged me to make the blog IE-compatible, so no worries there anymore.
