I haven't posted here in donkey's years, although I have a couple of posts long overdue. I had an exchange between me an Christine Wong Yap ready to post and then lost it when the wireless at the cafe I was at shut off. It was about an hour's worth of work to clean up and I haven't had the heart to do it again.
But also, the Galleon Trade topic area has sputtered to a temporary halt for me. It's not that the artists have stopped making art, but that the cohesiveness of the group of artists has fray a little bit in my mind (only in my mind!). We're all back to our normal lives, it's been a year since we went to Manila, and the integrity of the topic has dissipated for me.
Also, I started blogging about art for KQED in January and that has absorbed a lot of my art blogging impulse.
I think when the Bay Area portion of Galleon Trade happens, there will be a flurry of posts. But it will be temporary. I think this blog will only survive, if it does, as an intermittent stream.
But also, I have a new, paid, blog called EnterBrainment, which is my usual meandering take, but this time on pop trash. It's a featured blog on a new, innovative blogging site called PNN or Personal News Network. The innovation sounds simple: the software is designed to allow bloggers to lay out their blogs like newspapers. But the result is a very different set of possibilities for blogging: more Huffington Post than Daily Kos.
Anyway, please check out the new blog and keep an eye out for my post with Christine. It's coming, I swear.
