For the moment the discrepancy between the formatting of the main and archive pages and the individual post pages will have to wait. There are more pressing matters to hand. To go with the minor cosmetic alterations to the blog, I feel the need for a major facelift of purpose. What is this blog for?
Like an old, charmingly ramshackle public house that has been purchased by a wicked sprawling Pubco, we need to rebrand. We need a theme.
So what am I going to write about? I've tried fiction, and no doubt I'll continue to put the stuff I'm not very proud of on here for your reading/ignoring pleasure, but there needs to be more than this.
It can't be music, as I never listen to anything new and I hate most of what's gone before. I think it would be churlish to step into a space already populated by people with a consuming love of listening to music and then writing about it, for the sole purpose of being sour and viperish about a song I accidentally heard on the radio. It's a similar story with Film and Television - I like both, but can you sustain a commentary on the FPS world when you watch less than a film a week, and probably only an hour of television per day?
Maybe books. But we're talking serious lead times on this. I get through one a week on the tube on the way to work, but if I'm going to get my audience back, I think the weekly serial might be too spartan a format for the on-demand world we're told me live in. The people need more.
So in summary, I have a few ideas that I'm keeping to myself, but I'd welcome suggestions. What would you like to read about day in day out?
