Movin’ along…to Associated Content.

It’s been a long time since I updated here, for many reasons. One of the main reasons of late is that I’ve joined Associated Content, where I can actually get paid for my writing, which is great! So you’re likely to find all of my current rants, raves, thoughts and reviews there from now on. If you’re a blogger yourself, you might want to give it a try too.

Well, thanks for trying, anyway!

It was a good try, and I thank everyone who helped out with my quest to get to Bonnaroo, but it looks like it wasn’t meant to be.

Radio 104.5‘s voting system was pathetically simple to take advantage of as “email verification” checks are just as easy to abuse as just about any other on-line voting method, and my main competition, “Megan L.”, did a damned intense job of abusing it at the end of the day on May 10.

My hat’s off to her, though if I may snark for a moment, I hope she puts that media pass to better use than might be expected given the photography “skills” evident in her submitted competition photo.

Maybe next time.

In unrelated news, next week there’s a very important anniversary coming up for me to celebrate and contemplate over, and that’s the 10-year anniversary of my launching the Master and Apprentice mailing list and archive for Obi-Wan/Qui-Gon slash. I plan to write up an entry over the weekend looking back on the origins of the archive, the fiction, the “drama”, and everything else as I saw it happen before I left the fandom.

In case it’s not obvious already…

I’ve figured out that the way to keep me actually using this thing is to broaden the scope of what I’m blogging about. It’s not just going to be about Police fandom, or even just fandom in general. Instead, it’s gonna be whatever the hell I feel like rambling about that doesn’t fit anywhere else. So it could be anything from movie/music/concert reviews to photography to my never-ending quest for the perfect Jersey Diner. Because I’m random that way.

I have another blog elsewhere – one I’ve had for years and do keep using, but it’s for a much more specific audience, and one I’ve only narrowed and narrowed through the years instead of expanding. I guess I felt it was time to start keeping a more general blog as well for things that I thought could be of interest outside my small circle of close friends. I guess we’ll see how it goes in the long run…

So much for keeping this thing updated!

I see I started this blog back in June…and then have done nothing with it so far. Oh well. I’ll try to do better in the future.

Meanwhile, The PoliceWiki continues to grow and do well, which is encouraging. I also really need to spend some time adding to the Police pages at the FanHistory wiki. And oh yeah, get to work on finishing the edits on that tour fanzine. *sigh* As soon as real life stops kicking my ass. Yes. And then maybe I can start updating this blog more regularly as well…

Is anybody alive in here?


I suppose it might be a little odd that, here we are at the very end of The Police tour, and I’m just now starting this blog.

I seem to have a tendency to do things bass-ackward like that.

Nevertheless, here I am. I suppose my reasons for starting this blog are several-fold:

  • To give me a place to reflect back on the tour, to put all the pieces together after the year and a half of all consuming madness. Some of this will also involve working on a planned fanzine collecting stories
    from other fans about their experiences with the tour and fandom.
  • To keep folks up to date on what is happening with policefans.org – how we will continue to keep working on the wiki, the forum, and perhaps open the site up for other fans who’d like to create a Police-related blog here.
  • To keep the spirit of the band and the fandom alive. Because the end of the tour does not mean the end of The Police in the hearts and minds of their many fans.

Anyway, so there it is. Thanks for dropping by, and stay tuned for more…
