I share a trait with Kevin Smokler, the editor of Bookmark Now: Writing in Unreaderly Times: I’m never on time for any cultural trend, and I’m lagging way behind on blogging. I’ve tried it inconsistently for about two years now, but have never had a real focus in any of my blogs. Maybe this one won’t be focused either. In general, I want to talk about books and art and movies and other cultural phenomena; at the same time, I’m interested in letting you in on a little bit of my life, as Pam Ribon does at pamie.com. And, I’ll try to update this thing more often. Perhaps I’ll actually gain some readership–become a famous blogger.
