I set this blog up today on something of a whim, but I’m hoping it keeps going for a while at least. Mainly because I tend to forget what I’ve done on a day-to-day basis, and having a blog helps with that.
I’m reintroducing a thing I used to do on my old blog, which was the ‘weekly round-up’. I used to try to write it on a Sunday, but inevitably by the time Sunday rolled around I’d just want to chill out and not bother thinking about the week that’d just passed. So it might end up being a Friday/Saturday thing this time.
A while ago I watched Darkness Descends, an enjoyable, gritty romp through the New York underground featuring the wonderful Danny Trejo. Some of my favourite quotes included:
This is the appreciation for life. You can only feel it when you face death.
Those tattoos are amazing. Do they mean something?
They mean everything.
You can’t have freedom without a little danger. You can’t have art without a lot of freedom.
Such beautiful rage.
Somebody does need to do something. And maybe this time ‘somebody’ doesn’t mean ‘somebody else’.
