In the beginning...
So, what next?!
2:11p
By Means of Introduction ~
The first thought that I had is how I would add pictures to this thing...
Lesse... Ah... it's in the FAQ!

So... this is me, more or less... I'm Mark. I'm in my early 30s, but I don't look or act the part. I'm a geeth... part goth, part geek. Yes, I could fix your computer problems. No, I won't.

I create web-based documentation for a living, but I want to get wealthy, retire, and do creative, artistic projects instead. I plan on retiring in the next 4 years on the stock options I got from my new job.

I've been in an ongoing relationship with my enamorata Kirsten for over a decade. We're both bi. We are also polyamorous, though we are currently not seeing anyone else. Yes, this means I have slept with two people at once... it's very cuddly and can be more emotionally satisfying than just about anything else you can experience. No, I don't feel mysogynistic or the least bit guilty about it. It's not for everyone, but... try it. You might like it.

I am not conventional. I am not normal. I am unpredictable and erratic.

I may be sanest person that you have ever met.

Why did I set up a LiveJournal? ~
Well, when I started designing my website, I knew I wanted to have some kind of journal... The work of all of my web heroes (and heroines) all tends towards the confessional. This can be a difficult thing for me... I am an intensely private person at times, but I want to push away the barriers that prevent me from achieving my creative goals... I want to transform my life into art and I want to make my art my life... though I'm not really sure I feel comfortable being called an artist. Not everyone, perhaps, is an artist, but we all create art.

...well, my most influential web heroine is Auriea Harvey. I'm sure many of you out there are familiar with her entropy8zuper.org website... well, when I noticed her online journal recently, my choice of which of the many journals out there to use was made up. I mean, how much time do I really have to review the options anyways? She's such a good web designer that I figure I can't pick significantly better than she could.

Doing anything for the web is a painful process for me... actually saying "Yes... this version of my homepage is me... this is the information that I want to tell other people about what it is like to be myself... this is how I want to display it." ... very hard for me.
The cool thing about LiveJournal is that I can just ramble, click, and voila... a snapshot of my persona.

I tend towards tools and solutions that allow me to express myself dynamically and rapidly. If I can't create something both effortlessly and skillfully, I will probably second-guess it to death!

Backwards Inertia
I do things in an odd way... thanks to the wonder of technology, I got my "updated journal features" for my web site implemented prior to the new web site itself! So... it is 10:10pm, I have work in the morning... I have imbibed three rather significant White Russians (Three cheers for Stolichnaya Vanil vodka!) and I feel compelled to get my new web site up by the end of the night. I will, most likely, be rather tired and dehydrated tomorrow. So... what's new??!

Chewing on Clove gum; thinking of goth-flavored kisses... mmmm. I need a good CD. Where's my Underworld?!? Oh... that's right. I have to attach that little cable betwixt my CD burner and my sound card. I really must do that soon!

Ok... so it is .mp3 time then. Thanks to the miracle that is Napster, I have about 7 gigs of songs to choose from. Picking something out now... Pearls Girl.

I Done It.
Website up and running... Got to create content for most of the links, but how important is content to a website anyway?!? >>>Warning! Safe levels of irony have been exceeded! Smirk meltdown imminent. Reboot!<<<

If anyone out there sees this, let me know what you think of the site and how well it downloads for you. I'm marginally concerned about bandwidth (wouldn't want to suck down this puppy over a 28.8 connection) ...but thankfully, I have very little sympathy for people who don't have "real connectivity". (C'mon... stop holding up global progress and get some bandwidth, you bottom feeders!)

Current Mood: creative
