State Of The Blog: 200th Post (Emelianov Version)

I know, I know, it seems that it was only yesterday that a group of us decided it was time to enter the new world of blogging, but it’s been several months now and I think it’s going well – we’ve gained some readers, made fun of some things, settled into our areas of preference and even lost a valuable member (virtual r.i.p. to the founding member Lou Deeptrek – a pseudonym chosen by a close friend who did not have time or energy to continue posting and decided to commit virtual suicide – sad, sad, sad) – but Shahar and I are going strong, I think (Paco’s posting with some regularity as well)… I don’t have much to say about the ‘state of the blog’ but just that I find it to be an excellent outlet for my interests that have little or nothing to do with teaching philosophy or reading the types of articles and books that takes up most of my free time, so it is certainly cathartic and useful.

Some future goals:

– be more mean when it comes to opera reviews, people are too nice these days, too euphemistic

– convert to Mormonism and/or Judaism

– post more about philosophy of music and my readings of Boulez and Adorno

– get a cool haircut

– go to Portland for the break and love it there

– finish reading Kant’s Opus Postumum and like it…
