The Red Notes is my exercise in solipsism. Here’s a run down of what to expect.
- Politics: I am a Texan, brought up by a liberal Democrat and a Libertarian, and I wound up being a Marxist. I also enjoy following the circus that is the American political system. On this respect, you’ll get occasional Long Posts about American politics — and sometimes other non-American political happenings — from a very Red perspective. I might spend some time live blogging debates and Major Political Events when I can remember to.
- Books and Movies: Always one with my nose stuck in a book or my eyes glued to the television screen when I have time, I will probably post a bit about my reading and watch list. You can follow my GoodReads profile, too.
- Music: I’m going to resist trying to just turn the blog into my personal playlist. We’ll see how that goes.
- Miscellany: I got my head up in the clouds and my eyes are to the sky (cringe enough?), so there’ll be some posts about meteorology and astronomy from time to time. I’ll post interesting videos, too. And neat pictures.
This is intended to be a daily thing. I enjoy writing, but I do more talking about writing than writing. As Cormac McCarthy said, “If you spend a lot time thinking about how to write a book, you probably shouldn’t be talking about it, you probably should be doing it.”
More to come.
