How have things been, friend?

June 23, 2008

There are plenty of things to write about, namely the high amount of strange things that happened this last weekend, but right now I am just trying to recover from it all and think about just how to communicate in words how odd it all was. Since I don’t really know how soon it will be before I find the right way to tell the story of the weekend (which can only rightfully be done in collaboration with Corey) then I will write things like this post, which says nothing at all but passes as a post. To make it seem like at least a little something, here is a list that I just thought of sharing…

The Long-Awaited Collaboration Blog

June 19, 2008

For the past few months, my friend Elissa and I have talked about starting a blog that we could both participate in, a place where we could pool our thoughts together on whatever random things we wanted to talk about at any given time. What initially sparked such an idea is the fact that we are always talking about favorites lists we would make of albums, films, etc, always comparing our interests. The thought of a collaboration blog was always a good one, we just didn’t act on it as quick as we’d have liked to, but those days are over. A few days ago, Elissa officially created IS THE ONLY LOVE, the place that we’ll look to frequently deliver our random lists, poetry, rants, music talk, complaints, trend-bashings, comic book talk, and more nonsense that we could feel like spitting out. I hope you will take a look sometime. We promise we will try to make it interesting enough to wanna come back.

Some lists, inspired by recent reviews.

Father’s Day/Birthday

June 16, 2008

“If I was a Pagan, then I would be one happy motherfucker.”

A quote earlier today from my dad, Mark Ferguson, commenting on the coincidence of his birthday being on the same day as Father’s Day…and displaying, as he does so often, how much he refuses to believe in celebrating them. Or any holiday for that matter, excluding Thanksgiving.
