I’ve been threatening to kill off this blog at various times for possibly as much as a year now. You all probably think I’m a total tool because of it, or perhaps more likely, for not following through.

I think I’m in need of a re-branding, though. On the one hand, I don’t want to have to maintain too many different blogs/sites, on the other, it gets really incoherent if I mix up too many topics or kinds of content. Somebody always ends up complaining about what I choose to write, how I choose to organize it, how much I choose to say about one thing or another. Usually my wife. :P Maybe because she’s the only one who actually gives a shit.

I’m already pretty determined to start a different site for music projects, since I would desire such a site to have a lot of features that this format doesn’t lend itself well to. The kinds of things that need more of a CMS than a blog engine, and making Wordpress pretend to be a CMS strikes me as a square-peg-round-hole problem that’s more trouble than I want to take on.

What do you guys think? What do you like to read from me? How do you think it’s best disseminated or organized? How do I resolve my multiple facets? How do you, the readers, perceive your relationship to Chuck Hoffman and his Nothing Happens? Do you read because consider me and/or my words to be provocative? insightful? an artist? a personal acquaintance whose comings and goings you want to keep up on? intelligent? a trainwreck? a freakshow? I want to know.
