Call me paleo, short for paleotectonics. By way of introduction.
As per my address, I am a simple little electrician. Although based in MN, and likely for good, I've had the luck to do a lot of traveling. (And except for the lack of an NFL team, I like Minnesota. A bit lacking in mountains, perhaps.)
I'd like to talk about nerd stuff, music, thingies that go bump in the night, cultural bits, and, as I'm basically a huge commie, politics. I try to take very little seriously, especially myself. (I'm taking lessons from my wife on that one.) I welcome all people, and all opinions, as long as they promise to do the same. As far as comments, bring the geek - Comiccon, PAX, and all news of Cthulu. Bring the science, especially geology, loves me some rocks. Ghosties, Bigfeets, Jersey Devils, love it. Especially in driving distance. Fishing tips are always welcome, particularly when accompanied by cooking tips. Music is a favorite topic. I'll throw out a couple now on the miniature record player right here - The Rockford Mules (incredibly crunchy slide blues rock), Jerry Reed (Smokey and the Bandit aside, my lord, what an amazing picker). Take a shot.
Briefly, I've been haunting blogs for a bit, trying to bring the snark, sometimes successfully. A commenter from one of my favorite sites, and host of his own blog, suggested, when said site was down for a bit, that everyone jonesing should start their own blog*. Bear with me a bit, it may take a handful of posts to get a posting frequency, style, and such, but I hope I can entertain, and provide another place for snarky people to let their smart-ass fly. Here We Go.
