This is my shiny new blog; still smells like that new car smell. I gotta get some shit set up here: scrape that sticker off the window, put my CDs above the visor, adjust the seats, set the radio to stations I like, and so forth.
Why does this blog exist? Basically, it exists because Driftglass is a pitiless bastard who caved to the caterwauling of certain unsavory elements within his commentariat (Hi, us blues, bustednuckles, blue gal, and you other bastiges!) and threw me, once a fellow commenter happily nestled in the warm Driftglass bosom, back over the transom and out into the cruel blogwilderness.
What is this blog about? This blog is about PhysioProf writing about shit he find interesting, outside the constraints of the scientific and academic writing that pays the fucking bills. (And yes, I will drift back and forth between the first and third person. It makes PhysioProf laugh. Don’t like it; tough shit.)
Topics that I plan on addressing here definitely include politics, media, academia, and other blogs. Topics I may address if I feel the urge include sports, food, and anything else that tickles my fancy. As far as academic issues relating directly to biomedical research goes, I will continue to post my thoughts in that area as a co-blogger at DrugMonkey.
I am still figuring out how to work this WordPress blog thingie: choose a decent skin (or whatever the fuck you call how the blog page lookies), make a blogroll (jesus fucking joseph and mary, I swore I would shoot myself if I ever used the word “blogroll” earnestly in a sentence), and other administrative crapola I used to blithely pawn off on
suckers wonderful kind souls like Driftglass and DrugMonkey. Any suggestions for how to deal with this admin shit will be happily considered.
(And for those who have commented on the “Hello World” post that used to be up here, I fucked up already and deleted that whole post, including your comments. Sorry.)
Now step in, sit down, and chill the fuck out!
