Let's start this thing

“You can be gay, straight, Chinese. Those are the three types.”
- Ross Noble

“There are worlds out there where the sky is burning; where the sea's asleep and the rivers dream; people made of smoke and cities made of song. Somewhere there's evil, somewhere there's injustice and somewhere else the tea is getting cold. Come on, Ace, we've got work to do.”
- The Seventh Doctor

“It's a long story. No, actually, it's a short story: he did something dumb.”
- Kermit the Frog

“It's all in the mind, you know.”
- Wallace Greenslade

Best to get it out there straight away: I have one of those butterfly minds, flitting from obsession to obsession and never settling for long. I go back and forth but there are some old standards that should mean this blog will have some constants, some content and maybe even one or two readers: comics, Doctor Who, Warhammer, classic comedies, feminism.

There'll be some smut, as well, best to admit that one up front as well. Sex and sexuality are sort of hobby horses of mind so the odd spot of NSFW will creep in, heavily signposted. And no, I don't see any conflict with the content of this paragraph and the end of the last one. If I'm defined as any sort of feminist it would be as a sex positive one because, frankly, I am quite positive in my opinion of sex.

On the personal (less interesting) level I'm hoping that starting this blog again will get me back into the habit of writing. Writing is by far my favourite hobby and I don't think its a coincidence that shutting down the original version of this blog coincided a very dark time in my life. So there may be some catharsis going on in the margins, just so you're aware.

Don't worry, the moment I notice anything cathartic going on I'll slip you some smut to make up for it, I'm a generous sort of guy.

Don't worry, thus concludes the wanky introductory post, next up: content that might be passingly interesting. Well, you never know.
