Welcome to the new dive…

Yep, I packed up my shit and moved.  Relocated.  Set up shop somewhere new.  Why, you might ask (or you might not, but I am going to tell you anyway)…

I needed a new start.  There was too much bad blood, bad mojo, bad memories, all around bad shit back at the old joint.  Yeah, it is still there, it’s not going anywhere.  I pondered nuking it, but then decided not to.   But nah, I won’t be there anymore.  For my last several months of blogging there I felt like I was on auto pilot.  Dead but still kicking.  Everything, you see, had some how gone very, very wrong.  Things go bad sometimes, and well, this was one of those times.

Somewhere along the way I forgot why I was blogging and what was really important to me.  Sometimes being a mercenary, well, you forget exactly what you are fighting for and all.  I got to a point where I wasn’t “pro” anything- just mean and cynical and “anti” everything.  Burned out.  Gutted.  Rotting.  I am one of those people who just doesn’t know how to forgive and forget…I’m still not one of those people…but I can attempt to move on in one way or another.

So yep, here we have it, one foot out in front of the other.

And yeah, things will be different this time.  I’ve had more than my fill of various things, enough so much that they make me ill, really.  So sure enough, there will be things I am happy to discuss here in my shiny new arena:  human sexuality, porn, the sex industry, outreach and education, kink, complexity, good days and bad days, disabilities, art, music, movies, sports, gaming, writing, politics, news…and quite possibly, food and cars.  And cats.  There are subjects which I will be a lot more reluctant to delve into…and right now, one of those is feminism.  I am just not in the mood to go there now, and frankly, I am not sure when I will be in the mood to go there again.  Other people can talk about it, the F-Word is not forbidden here, analysis is allowed…but do not expect me to argue from that point of view, on those merits, so on, so forth, for awhile…if ever again. 

And while my door is open and I do not generally believe in “safe spaces” , I will say this now:  This place?  It’s for the freaks and the kinksters, the whores and the oddities, the geeks and the marginalized and demonized, the aggressive and mocked and marvelous.  The people whom, if I had the opportunity, I would like to hang out with in real life…and I will not see or tolerate those people being slammed.  If you are going to call anyone around here a sick fuck, a monster, or a sociopath, you better mean it as a compliment or term of endearment. 

Catch my mojo?  Excellent.

I’ve had it with the bad, and am ready for some good.  Some safe.  Some…dare I say fun?  Yeah, that too.

And with that…welcome, and the God Emperor of Rome Salutes You!
