We Must Have a Purpose

you know, I was thinking about doing something like this anyways.

the yearning to compile everything in one spot is pretty strong. the yearning to have a place to put not-top-secret-information (ZOMG!) is good. breaking through the genre-definition barriers that felt constricting in the previous, scattershot format I've been using is pretty powerful.

so what is this? the seed is a class assignment (ABRAHM!) for J361 here (as the title says) in the rainy NW at the University of Oregon...there are at least three topics to be covered on any given week (one aping a favorite blogger's style [this is where the FD love goes], one about the Poynter Institutes' blog, and one just on our own) but expect all of that, plus content gleamed from other sources:

My 1up blog, where everything gaming goes
fitting thoughts and such from my usually-friends-only LJ blog. YES I'M COOL ENOUGH TO STILL HAVE ONE. now go excuse me while I go be emo.
my stillborn sports blog, Robo-Duck's Revenge, which currently is gathering much dust.
opinion fit to print with a nod to the Emerald's blog. If only to point out how the Em blog has turned into Sports vs. Fashion. I imagine a knife fight between myself and Pulse ed Lindsay will happen soon, with snapping, bad early '50s fashion and all the west side story accoutrement.

expect (besides the basic requirements) a lot of sports coverage because that's what I've got my head buried in right now, and hopefully some other musings on stuff that actually matters.

and probably funny YouTube videos. Those are always welcome.

Welcome to the Thunderdome, bitches. Enjoy.

this could go anywhere my brain possibly could go.

so, be afraid - be *very* afraid.
