Let this stand as my entrance into the hallowed halls of Blogger (or is it Blogspot?) and, coincidentally, my departure from the world of Xanga, which to this day stands as one of the worst proper nouns ever propagated by my generation. Sorry, ancestry and posterity, for this blight upon the English language. It’s a good thing we have such a sublime specimen of verb as ‘blog’ with which to redeem ourselves.
It is here, at pseudepigraphic.blogspot.com*, that I shall publish the occasional opinion and post the occasional good read. I draw a distinction of kinds here because I will be responsible for the first and others will be responsible for the second, and nary the twain shall meet, nor ought they ever to be confused. Don’t worry, though; you won’t be misled. If you find yourself captivated by a distinct feeling of intellectual stimulation or remarking on the erudition and acumen of the writer, that will be a sure sign that you are reading out of the latter category. If, on the other hand, you start to feel yourself languishing in the grip of ennui and begin cursing the day that man first thought to express himself in writing, you are most surely reading from the former. You’ll get the hang of it soon, if you have the misfortune of following this blog. It will be second nature in no time at all.
Subsequent entries will be less self-referential, hopefully. This shtick only works once, if that.
Until my next posting, goodbye.
