So it begins.

First post.
Probably oughtta be some kind of mission statement.

I'm a somewhat older American male with two kids. Throughout my life I've garnered a lot of interests and dabbled in quite a few more. Probably more interests have stuck with me and become serious, if that word can actually be used for fanboy passions, then the average person.

Being a fanboy, of course I am a regular internet cruiser keeping up on these things, looking at flamewars, weighing arguments. And y'know what? There is a real dearth of grounded level-headed opinion.

Part of that comes from passion. Mostly it's passionate (read irrational if you must) people that are motivated enough to write or post in the first place. There is the syndrome of internet facelessness allowing extreme reaction. And perhaps many people who once were fanboys are no longer... they've grown (or married) out of it. Maybe backburnered their geekery enough to not be plugged into 'tah interweb' on the topics.

I have not seen fit to mature enough to shed these childish pastimes. But I'm old enough and have seen enough to offer something more than 'this sucks' or 'this rulez'. I have passion enough for these things to want to talk about them and even invite discussion... so I'm starting a blog (yay!). Comments can even be 'this sucks' or 'this rulez' (or 'you suck')... I just want a space to stretch out in narcissism and blow off some geek-steam.

Take it or leave it. It's a free internet.
