Hey Patrick, why would you name your site the D train?
Remember that episode of 'Seinfeld' when George wants a nickname? He's talking with Jerry and he comes up with the name
T-Bone? So he decides to take it to work, and tries to get people to call him T-Bone by ordering a T-Bone steak in the
middle of a meeting at lunch, and then the guy next to him thinks that a T-bone for lunch would be nice as well and
unwittingly steals the nickname away from George? I loved that episode. If you're thinking that I am going to tell you
that I launched a web site with a cool name so I could be called D-Train from now on, you're outta luck.
Nope, my name doesn't even have a D in it. Actually, I got this site because when I lived in Brooklyn, I had friends at NYU.
When I went from around the way to Manhattan, I got on at DeKalb and got off at West 4th. The D train. It was my train. It was my lifeline to the city.
WHAT is the DEAL with all the links not working? I mean COME ON! You click, it's not here, you click the next one, it's not there. You think it's there it's not it's there it's not . . . Stop teasing me already and give me something to look at!
There's no real NEED for me to roll out an entire working web site at once, so I don't bother. It'll work soon enough, and maybe I won't even get around to putting everything up, but I'm trying. Besides, it's not a big deal, and my 404 is funny (well, it's really only funny once, but how many 404s are funny all the time?). Just chill, yo.
So, what is the site for?
Err, uhhh. Well, it's a combination of things. First of all, it's
a blog. It's a weblog for your entertainment. If I see, hear, do, feel,
think, or smell something that's funny or interesting or that I think
someone will feel the same way I'll put them up
here. If it's not funny, I'm sorry. I promise to be more funny next time, but if I'm not, I'm probably in a rut. Invite me over for tea so we can watch Wallace and Gromit videos together.
Second of all, it's a diary. It's not a diary in the
most personal sense of the word, it's just a list of things that
happen to me or that I did that made me think a certain way. The
thing is, I am a very opinionated person, and this is just
another way to ask if other people are with me on something. I also
like arguments, so bring it on. Please feel free to IM me at any
time if you want to argue; I am up for the challenge, even if I
don't know shit about the subject at hand (which happens to be somewhere
from 80-90% of the time). The site is one of my creative outlets. If you like it, repsond. If you don't like it, respond harshly. I dish it out real nice, but I can take it.
