Blogging : It's so 2006

Well and truely back into the work-life, so I spent 3 minutes browsing a few blogs that I was reading last year, and to be honest the NZ blogs - the ones linked from Scoop.co.nz - well they are so goddamn boring.

So much so, that to be frank, I can't be bothered participating in such nonsense. This isn't called apathy, it's just that I'd rather do something more fun. Like skating, or sitting on the deck with a cold beer. Even my PhD is more fun than writing some shite about the state of the world. We all know it's in a shit of a mess. You don't need me to remind you.

There is always an exception to the rule - I've become a bit of a fan of Antonio Lopez read his blog, it's way more entertaining than mine. Don't read any of those NZ blogs - esp the ones linked from scoop - they are all a pack of dreary wankers.

In the meantime, here is a photo of Jack (my son) throwing a backside ollie out of our quarter ramp at home.

Barrels of fun and minimal carbon footprint.

So your not going to blog anymore? THANK GOD - without me featuring in it, it was boring as shite.
We need to go for a beer sometime.

Hey, thanks for plugging my media mindfullness blog. It is greatly appreciated. I thought you might be interested in my other blog, which is a little more "punk rock": http://blogdisease.com.

I keep them separate because sometimes like to cuss and I'm trying to keep the media blog a little more "professional." Anyhow, I enjoyed reading your blog as well. Paz!

Cheers Antonio, yeah I check out your blog a couple of times a week, great stuff! I was a little more serious last year (and the year before) but I've started a PhD so I don't have as much time to think about and write a good article, usually these days it's just the occasional rant, or "punk rock" abuse at any authority that I consider to be misled.

All the best
Steve.
