Like many personal blogs of its era, this blog is moribund, a casualty of what we might call "the Facebook effect." However, as of late 2015, two things are clear: (1) The Indie Web is a thing, and (2) the re-decentralization of the web is a thing. So who knows? 2016 2017 (!) could be the year this blog rises from its own ashes. Stay tuned!

I scored 124.5 on the 80’s Lyrics Quiz. You see this sort of thing on the Web from time to time, but you never see one this well implemented, or this much fun. Who can beat me? No cheating!

Oh, the memories that can come flooding back just because of one line from one song!

My score: 93.5 points, 1 wasted lunch break.

What I learned from this experience is not only that an entire sector of my brainspace is wasted on useless things like song lyrics, but also that a big part of that sector is taken up by Mondegreens.

108.5, and I don't feel bad about not knowing lyrics to Whitesnake and Kenny Loggins tunes.

96.5. How did you get more 80s than me, you infant?
