Jumping into the Deep End

OK, while this is not my first attempt at having a blog, it is my first attempt in doing so that is not connected to some other endeavor (the last time was on MySpace and that was abandoned in pretty short order).  So, why am I starting this blog up, you might ask.  Well, it’s probably quite a lot of vanity and ego, to be honest.  I mean, I have to be vain and egotistical to think that people on the web will want to read my opinions about topics that, most likely, only really matter to me. 

In any case, I’m doing it and I will, hopefully, be doing it on a fairly regular schedule.  I’d like to start out by posting every other week, to see if I can hack it.  You never know, this might just be one of my passing obsessions that will die a slow death in a few months.  So let’s just take it one step at a time.

Now, while I am aware that many of the more successful blogs have a single overarching them, many of my favorites among them, I don’t think I can really do that.  My mind just doesn’t work that way and, since this is my first blog of this type, having multiple pages for multiple ideas is a little beyond my scope right now.  I will promise one thing, however.  I will endeavor to make sure that the posts here are relevant to those geeks who, like me, grew up in the 1980’s.  Obviously, I’ll veer off of the pure nostalgia from time to time, but I’m sure you can understand that, dear reader.

Some of the topics you can expect to see here will include Comic Books (new and old), Movie Reviews or Remembrances, TV Show discussions, Role-Playing Games, Video Games and geekdom in general.  What I will not post about, and what will not be tolerated in the comments section, is any posting about Religion or Politics.  Any such comments will be removed without warning.
So, here we are.  I hope that the rest of you enjoy these items as much as I do.

(As a side note, I’d like to apologize to Marvel Comics for stealing the Thor Letter Page title for this blog.  But, when you go by the screen name of Mjolnir, there are only so many titles that will work.)
