An introduction

So, I have a blog now. Most people in the world have no idea who I am, so that statement is not terribly impressive. Anyway, hi, I’m glaceRaven, and I like animation, video games, geek culture, vocal synths, and philosophy, among a myriad of other things. Welcome to my blog!
The title says it all, really. It’s my many, varied musings:
If something irks me, I’ll probably write about it.
If I thought of something interesting, I’ll probably write about it.
If I found something amusing, I’ll probably write about it.
I will generally try to avoid politics and religion (mostly because I try to keep my real life and my online life separate), but I make absolutely no promises, since I don’t make promises I can’t keep. Some things are important and need to be discussed, whether because of widespread misunderstanding or otherwise. Other things irk me to the degree that, well, see point 1 above. I will, however, do everything in my power to avoid polemics, hysterics, sophistry (faulty rhetoric), and angry-posting. My goal is to inform and reflect, not to attack.
So basically, I would write posts about how, say, Cancel Culture is re-skinned McCarthyism coming from the opposite side of the political spectrum (and I probably will at some point because it is), but I would not write posts about, for example, everyone being an idiot (which would be an example of angry-posting and is not true in the least).
I will also not be avoiding offhand references to my own faith (e.g. mentions of going to Mass, observing Lent, praying, God, etc.), because it’s a part of who I am and true compartmentalization is majorly unhealthy; proselytizing is not on the menu, and any discussion is based on my own experience and observation, meant to be informative and interesting.
Anyway, with that out of the way, I hope my blog is entertaining, informative, and a good read. Bye for now!

  1. We are also in the Great Lent now but a week behind you (i.e. we are Eastern Orthodox). Best wishes for a good Lenten struggle.

  2. It also appears that you have blog now that you only occasionally visit. Not exactly a pattern for a successful blog. This is a design for blog failure.

    1. While I do appreciate that you are trying to give constructive criticism, I’m not really trying to “be a blogger” or anything like that, and success is not what I’m pursuing. Rather, I am doing this because I enjoy it and because it gives me an outlet. If it takes off, awesome, but I won’t lose any sleep if it doesn’t. (also at the time of your comment the blog was less than a week old, which is a bit early to determine such things) Cheers!
