Behind the Curtain

This weekend I wanted to write a bit that I’ve tentatively titled “One More Way to Skin a Cat” or “The Edge of Society,” but I wound up getting entangled in creating two new sections of this website.

If you look to the sidebar you’ll see two new links: “Links and such” and “Email Me.”

Email Me” is just as it seems. If you want to send me a note, now you can. But even the “Email Me” form has a story:

Me to Ray:

Umm … while you’re still titty-deep in JimFormation, how difficult would it be to install your mail form (including the male form pun) on JimFo? If it’s a pain in the ass, I can do it (or ask Ronnie to do it, as it were).

Ray to Me:

It’s Ronnie’s script! I’ll do it. Won’t take long at all. The Male Form thing is mine all mine, baby.

Ronnie is the Wife-beast’s brother. His web home is here.

I stole his Male Form bit anyway. Let him try and get a Cease and Desist.

Now you can send me a note. Try to be the first one!

Links and such” is a little bit more than just links.

There is a “Links” section—these are personal websites that I visit frequently that have some meaning to me. I call this section “A Loose Affiliation*,” as these are some of the places and people that I, overtime, have developed just that: A Loose Affiliation. There are many more websites that I visit, but didn’t make this list. Sorry.

The term “A Loose Affiliation” is lifted from Paul Simon’s “Boy in the Bubble Song.” Lyrics partially reprinted below (without Mr. Simon’s permission):

And I believe These are the days of …
Staccato signals of constant information
A loose affiliation of millionaires
And billionaires and baby
These are the days of miracle and wonder

Somehow appropriate, I thought.

The “and such” section is the section that may be of real interest to you. It’s my bookmarks section powered by the good folks at ma.gnolia.com. From my links introduction:

As I write this, my plan is to put all my bookmarks here and really give this tool a whirl. You see, I use no less than four computers daily and may realistically use seven. Bookmarks on one computer no longer help me. I’m hoping this will, and I don’t mind sharing my discoveries and research with you.

So it’s my ongoing bookmarks. You can see the things that I find worth saving. Maybe you’ll like it, but probably you’ll just think, “He’s an idiot for bookmarking that.”

Oh. I’ll write “One More Way to Skin a Cat” later this week. I hope.
