Ten-year anniversary of my first blog post

Yes, I know that I already acknowledged this in tymshft, but today is the actual anniversary so I'll do it again.

On Tuesday, October 14, 2003 at 9:46 pm, the online world was greeted by the first post of the Ontario Empoblog.

Why did synthetica start with fake bluegrass sounds? Why not? This is the Ontario Empoblog, or the blog for Ontario Emperor, which has nothing and everything to do with Canada, New Mexico, and Texas, but also California, which is a location in California. It exists in cyberspace, which is also synthetic.

The Ontario Empoblog may or may not touch on a variety of subjects, including music, poetry, poker, the supposed familial relationship between Brian Eno and Slim Whitman, the number of licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop (1,121 - I checked), various comments about frogs, and the nature of nature.

Not an auspicious start.
