Conveniently timed moves

Guess I moved over here from Livejournal just in time for one of my occasional Facebook breaks. They happen from time to time. Every so often something happens which reminds me just how manipulative Facebook are in keeping eyeballs on them rather than anywhere else on the Internet, and I figure it's time for a time out. I would, in all honesty, dump them completely if not for the convenience factor of it being a useful place to share child photos with assorted grandparents.

My Livejournal account, 15 August 2004 - 10 April 2017

You've got to admit, Livejournal had a good long run for an online service. I don't think there are many commercial services I held an account on for 13 years which remained effectively unchanged during that time yet still had customers and didn't go the way of Myspace. (Except the WELL, of course, but the Bay Area boomer market isn't going away completely any time soon.)

But now, here I am.

What to talk about?

I want to have an interesting conversation. What shall we talk about?

(Translation - I am too lazy to write an essay right now)

Well, it's been a while.

I've gone through this old Livejournal and bulk-set all the public posts to friends-only, just so I can look to see if there's any hilarious angsty stuff I'd rather didn't see the light of day. That's why it's a little sparse right now if you're not my fwend.

Hello, Internet

So, has anything happened to anyone in the last couple of years since I last logged in here?

Asylum of the Daleks

Some quick notes to explain why I tweeted that the latest Doctor Who was "deeply unsatisfying, predictable, fourth-wall-breaking fan service that would even have embarrassed Billy Hartnell", at the request of [ profile] boxcat. Hidden behind a cut so you can avoid the spoilers. Typing this all real fast as it's nearly time for my beddybyes.

In short.. It was all just way too convenient for me.

Stupid Questions From Rock And Roll Answered, Part 1

"Why don't we do it in the road?"

Because you'll get run over, and the road is cold, uncomfortable tarmac.
