The last handbook to madness was one of the earliest posts. After a request from my then only reader, Kaffee, for an explanation of the Anonymity system i posted a guidebook of sorts to who's who in my little world. Well that was pointless considering so many more people are now on that list and complicated things have happened over time and so on.
This Handbook is different. This handbook, this great flight of fancy and imagination. Is a means to consolidate and update my blogging into one coherent and organized structure that will take care of all my random posting's. It is both a Manifesto for change and a guide to the contents of my blog in the past and what i intend to include in the future and possible events in the near by future too!
Table of Contents:
Super Title's and what they will each mean
Le Future: Things that could happen in the nearby future, and my intentions for my blog and life on certain paths...
SUPER TITLE'S And a new Method To My Madness:
SUPER TITTLE'S!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes this is what i will call Each section of my blog and how they will appear. Basically for each blog post i will fit what i am writing about into one of several SUPER TITLE'S and then rant about them within that heading with optional sub-title's. They will also, be distinguishable by being in bold or caps and separated. They will also now be the main and hopefully only thing included in my Label's. This will be to facilitate search's for other occurrence’s in each Super Title.
There are 19 SUPER TITLE'S that i feel will cover both wickets/all base's or whatever metaphor/simile i need.
It's Life Jim (but not as we know it):
(Diary entries of any or all content) Label's: Life, It's Life Jim, Diary.
This will most likely be the majority of my posts and will require sub-title's more than most. But hopefully with the Super Title system will be broken up more and will not be required as much as you may expect. My life, my thought's on my situations that don't fit super title's and so on.
(The Society, debating, campus politics and friendship/kinship/brotherhood): Society, College, School.
This one's a no brainer really. It already exists as it is. But with my involvement not being what i want it to be due to my failure to vote for myself and the busy nature of next year but i will still include this part of my life and all the friendships and interesting stories gained from it.
(An old blog of mine now contained in this blog): Cinephillia.
As with the nature of the old blog this will be a look at my love of movies. Movie's i have recently seen, Whether in the Cinema, DVD, TV or Online. It will also cover any critique's i may have from time to time.
Music Or Misery
(Also an old blog now contained in this blog): Music
Music is a big part of my life. I listen to it all the time. I therefore think i have a certain taste and opinion related to what i like and why i think it's good. Of course that's just snobbery. I in my liberal mindset believe Music Criticism is impossibly wrong and heavily biased. But i'll happily critique what i know about and like. Basically I will talk about artist's i love and how or why i love them and the odd time put down others because i don't like them at all...
(Older, new, and moded computer game's and why they are amazing): Abondonia.
Abondonware is the name given to software that no longer has a platform that can utilise it and or is out of date, hard to buy and rare. It is also a name given to older computer games. I play a lot of older computer games. They're just better. Also my pc isn't top range and i don't have the thumbs for Console's so PC games of yester-year are my go to joy. Open TTD and Civili(z)ation II being my main joys in the life of gaming. Plus other games that i have lying around and so on.
A nerdy gaming SUPER TITLE that you won't see to often, but it's a SUPER TITLE none-the-less.
(My view of the celeb world and current stories): Celebs, Celebtastic
I read several things around the web about celebrity and so on. It's called boredom, we all have it sometimes. So in an effort to remain relevant or to show i exist in the same plain of reality as the rest of us i will occasionally mention why Slut A is drunk and why Douche B is well a Douche. Stuff happens out there, we can't help but notice it and hey, i might as well mention it.
(News is happening 24/7, i will mention some...): Newshound, News, "insert popular news story or twitter trend name here".
As i said news happens 24/7. If something is happening in the world i will mention my thought on it, however opinionated or brief. I will endeavor to weigh in on what is happening and hope to inform as well as develop comment on it. It is after all a main facet of the blogosphere to comment on the world around us and the NEWS is how it is usually done for us by various media.
(my occasional interest in that alien world of Sport and physical activity): Sport, "insert sporting event here".
I am NOT a huge fan of sport. I don't follow any team in any sport. I do not follow any particular sport. But i do, like many follow big sporting events. The World Cup, The Olympics and Wimbledon. I never miss these things, they are my main and only sporting fix. If anything Wimbledon, being annual is my main area of sporting knowledge. And thus i will talk about Tennis with more fact's than i will any other sport.
(Love is the thing.) : Love, Love Life, "insert current fancy here"
Shocking as it may be but everyone has a love life. And even without a love life it is still called a love life despite lack there of. So in my quest for a partner in life and so on i will comment on it from time to time here. From fleeting fancies, to hopeful suitee’s, to anyone i may date or experience intimate moments with. This will be the Tunnel of Love and so on. It will mainly be full of whining and postulating, but if things look up here and there it could be all mushy and gooey and you'll hate me for including it.
Brick O' Brack:
(You can't have one without T'other): Misc, Brick O' Brack
Random thing's that fit no label, or fit more than one and hence for sake of ease will go under miscellaneous or Misc.
(Youtube and other viral flash boxes): Video Kill's, Youtube, "insert funny viral video trend here"
As is the nature of the web in this day and age there are these things called video's that play moving image's that entertain us. If one entertains me and i find it worthy of my blog i will added it to my blog and show it off to you.
This will break my blog though and cause it's feed to my facebook not to display the video or any words in the blog. Why this happens i do not know, but the same go's for photo's.
(It's Where it's @) Web-watch, web, interweb, "insert popular website here"
I am a prolific web user. I use it all the time. This SUPER TITLE will mention every part of my web use that i wish to share with you. From the blogosphere to Twitter Trends, to Web Browsers themselves, to New "IT" websites, To old one's, To place's where "it's" @.
(Academia, my college study life and so on): Examblor
As a nursing student, it's something i can't avoid. It's the monster in the room, exams, and so on. It is a big issue and so is my academic side as a whole. So i will cover it from time to time as it will have important factor's on many part's of my life.
(My story's, Lyric's and idea's, patent pending..): Muse's, Writing, Screenplay's, Lyrics, Poem's etc
I have what i would like to call an "active imagination". And with that i have many idea's and thought's which form many of my untapped "talents". I want to eventually write several books and create several tv show's or movies. I also from time to time write lyric's/poem's and i may share a few with you. I also have idea's from time to time and it would be nice to share some of them as well.
(Gadget's and how i love them): Q-Rated, Gadgets.
I am a man. Hence i use gadgets, it's a given. I have several Mp3 players of various make's and size, i have a webtastic INQ 1 mobile phone that i brag about a lot, i have a pile of broken disc men, a portable dvd player and i have 2 camera's. I love gadgets. If i could i would buy several kick ass mobile phone's, mp3/mp4 players just to test them or to have them. I would also love a laptop or notebook or pda, scratch that a touch screen blackberry/pda. Basically i would like many a thing i can't have. But it doesn't mean i can't educate myself about what kick ass gadget's and manly toy's are out there. So i will mention it all here, all very Q-Rated.
NB I would get a pink Nintendo DS/DS lite just to have a DS!!! No matter what condition or colour, if it works i'd have any gadget!!!!!!
Health & Illness:
(Health and healthy living and illness's and poor life behaviors): Health & Illness, Nursing, Health, Illness, H+I, "insert health scare/pandemic of the moment here"
As a Nursing Student, a human and citizen, a mental-illness groupie and a socialist, this is all very important to me. Health and it's opposite illness are very important thing's for society and humanity. So i will mention these things many a time in various forms and weigh in my thoughts, official and abstract... (sometimes sterilisation, genocide and quarantine seem too tempting to logical to ignore...)
(Camera's and photo's i've taken or love): Camera, Snap Happy
I'm no professional. I don't know or understand the "rule of thirds" but i do love photographs. I love them in all shape's and size's. From early lithographs’ and Auto-chrome's to my own snap happy way's within my "social life" and for recreational use. Camera's and their by-product's are an important part of life and with the disposable nature of digital they are even more common. Even my portable phone and telegram machine has a camera. So expect awe inspiring old timey photo's from by gone era's or interesting nugget's snapped by my hand.
On The Box:
(Television and it's shows): TV
I watch tv. We all Watch TV. It's just a case of what we like to watch. Well i will tell you what i watch, why i watch it, what i think is good and why it is so. So stay "tuned" and don't pick up the remote.
WARNING: Crime Drama, Medical Drama, Sci-fi and British Soaps/Drama and Comedy/sit-coms/Panel Shows feature heavily.
So that is the SUPER TITLE'S list. To recap the SUPER TITLE'S Are:
IT's Life Jim
Music Or Misery
Brick o' Brack
Health & Illness
On The Box
This is all to facilitate easier search's and to also break up my blogs. I also hope that it will allow me to run trends of several smaller blogs throughout my posting. Thus separating each field of blogging under these SUPER TITLE'S and letting you all know what the hell i was on when i wrote each entry.
It's Life Jim:
Well what's in store for the rest of the summer? Hmm well first we have to see the result's of Examblor and then study, work, and grovel accordingly. It's an extensive situation and i will discuss it under an Examblor post next week.
Other items of interest will be that DS is home. This Means cinema trips soon. So more Cinephillia is inevitable. But also his 21st is this summer. And there is a provisional plan for a trip to Amsterdam. So that could possibly happen. Provided Examblor result's are not to evil and snarling, festering and draining of my life-force.
A reading of the new Ross O'Carrol Kelly book, and inevitably a post in the style of that most popular dubliner.
It all hinge's on that Examblor post next week, so hush hush, stay tuned, Xo Xo and all that jazz.
