2012 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

19,000 people fit into the new Barclays Center to see Jay-Z perform. This blog was viewed about 150,000 times in 2012. If it were a concert at the Barclays Center, it would take about 8 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

I like having a blog. It permits me to identify as a blogger. Which I think is pretty cool.

Blogging, however… Well, that’s a love/hate relationship. It’s been a rocky one for quite some time, as the dated entries which precede this one indicate.

Not blogging is quite easy to do, and tends to beget further inaction. I think in my case I put too much importance on producing full-fledged informative and evocative articles that I simply forgot how to blog.

Given that I find the act of blogging about blogging to be an atrocious waste of space and finger-energy, I’ll make the rest of this post short. This blog is about to undergo both a facelift and an attitude adjustment. Which is just my super awesome way of saying the theme is going to change, and I’m going to start writing more often.

…And the netizens rejoiced in their knowledge that James Kalìwæ would soon begin providing semi-entertaining bits of prose to all of the internets. Amen.


Remarkable Human Being: Alex Honnold – Free Solo Climber

This guy is fucking amazing. Yes, free solo climbing is exactly what it sounds like. Climbing mountains by yourself and free of anything that might prevent you from going SPLAT if you happen to slip.

Do you see how in the zone this guy is when he’s up there? How can he handle the pressure of knowing any small mistake will surely kill him?

Anyway, just had to share that.
