I’ve decided to join the blogosphere. (Oh, how I hate such terms.) I’m always musing and ruminating, and for the sake of my sanity, I need to start writing it down. I know things will be slow going at first in terms of readership, but I’m sure a few well-placed shout-outs will lure some suckers readers.

Here you’ll find:

  • Observations and casual essays on pop culture and human behaviour.
  • Occasional excerpts from my academic papers.
  • A lot of YouTube clips; I’m enthralled by the idea that I can find just about anything there and can relive just about any era of my life. Once I set up my webcam I might even start some video blogging.
  • Rants and raves. (You knew that was coming.) How can I not?
  • Random amusing stuff.

Here you will not find:

  • Politics. It’s not that I’m apathetic or ill-informed. It’s because I don’t feel like getting into debates. I have neither the time nor the patience.
  • Delicate personal stuff. I have a friends-only LiveJournal for that, and don’t want to broadcast sensitive aspects of my life to the world.
  • Advice.

That being said, I hope to stack this blog quickly. I have a lot of LiveJournal posts that would be suitable here, and I’m always finding new stuff on YouTube that I like to share and comment on.

Be nice. Be fair. Be real. Don’t piss me off. I’m looking forward to this.

    Hi Puck,

    I read a YouTube post from you enquiring about a Christmas “Season’s Greetings” bumber aired on CFCF-12 since the 70’s or early 80’s, showing winter scenes.

    If you’re talking about the one with orchestra and choir, then yeah I’d love to find that one too… it’s an otherworldly arrangement!

    The one thing I can tell you about that is the melody is from a 15th century French Christmas carol called “Entre le boeuf et l’ane gris”. I would very much like to find the particular performance used in that vignette though.

    Please let me know if you find anything out about that song.

    I am hoping to dress up as a Sweeney Sister for a party in December, but can’t find any video of them online… anyway you can email me the video you posted?

    Sweeney Claus!
    All my Christmas wishes would be fulfilled if you could direct me to the Sweeney Sisters Christmas concert! Thanks so much for the important work you do!
    Fa la la la la la la la la,

    Desperately seeking Sweeney Sisters Christmas Spectacular to show my daughters…they are huge fans of cheesy showbiz takeoffs as well as everything SNL. Can you please help? I’d be very grateful.

    I am interested in the notion of ‘new media’ immediacy and how it effects our ontology and epistemology. I am trying to write an essay on it for my last semester at Massey University in New Zealand. Do you have any scholarly sources for such matter? There seems to be a shortage.

    Hi Puck, please help me find a copy of the video as well. My family and I also have fond memories of this special and wish to find a copy. 🙂 Thank you.
