In which a group of graying eternal amateurs discuss their passions, interests and obsessions, among them: movies, art, politics, evolutionary biology, taxes, writing, computers, these kids these days, and lousy educations.

The Return of J. Cassian

Michael Blowhard writes:

Dear Blowhards --

One of my very favorite bloggers, J. Cassian is also one of the blogosphere's most on-and-off bloggers in a scheduling sense. For three months or so, he'll write a ton of postings. Then he might plead a busy life and treat himself to a five month break. Doesn't he know that life must always -- always -- take a second place to blogging?

Given the irregularity of J. Cassian's blogging habits, it can be hard to know when he's doing his thing and when he isn't. Darn it: What about my convenience? The good news, though, is that he's currently in one of his blogging phases, and that his blogging is as full of velocity, dry humor, deep (but not-explicitly-stated or dwelled-upon) convictions, and idiosyncratic knowledge as ever. Why not treat yourself to a visit? Don't miss his ironic celebration of Slavoj Zizek.

Don't you subscribe to Bloglines or some such, where the new postings are indicated? That has saved me loads of time and aggravation.

Susan -- I really ought to, tks. Do you find Bloglines handy? My own aging brain gave out somewhere between "what's a blog?" and "what's an RSS feed?" I just have a terrible time wrapping my thoughts around words like "feed" and "subscribe." But I'm real proud that I understand what a blog is!
