New Blargs!

It's been like four years and I really just don't enjoy working with blogger so two new blogs to replace it:

Oblique Construction, a linguistics blog about linguistics; and
Et In Arcadia, Aggro, a blog about keeping it real in Honolulu against all odds.

Also I redid the front page to the best it's been since this has been an world-wide-website. Really, I think it looks pretty good.

Anyway that's it. Read those other things! Tumblr allows a much better reading and writing experience in general than Blogger, though granted I think youz guyz that read this at all generally do so on a feed so whatevers. Anyway yeah, that.

2010 - Balls Out

Ever a fan of unofficial slogans for every day things, last year I proposed one for 2009. Unfortunately, it didn't catch on. But some of us out here in Seattle (where I am again, all too briefly) (particularly Ian) have proposed one for this year: 2010 - BALLS OUT. It is a slogan with a promise of getting shit done. Be unafraid, be awesome, be all you can be with your balls out.

  • In 2010 I'm going to have my second and third semesters - that is HALF - of my MASTERS in linguistics program. BALLS OUT.

  • In 2010 I'm going to try to go to the U of Wisconsin in the summer for an INTENSIVE Tamil language course. Tamil is the classical language of Carnatic culture and has an EXTENSIVE written tradition. BALLS OUT.

  • In 2010 I will be traveling to other ISLANDS of Hawaii besides O'ahu, maybe including the BIG Island. BALLS OUT.

  • In 2010 I will pay more attention to my FANTASY basketball team, and also support my local Rainbow WARRIORS. BALLS OUT

So happy New Year everyone. I hope that for everyone it is totally BALLS OUT.
