Whys and Wherefores

Last week I sat in noisms' kitchen, playing Scrabble with him and his fiancée. We were talking about this and that, and the subject of this blog came up. noisms and I had been talking about doing something like this for a while, making an outlet for the kinds of things that we talked about all the time, and this seemed like the thing to do. If everyone else in the world can put themselves out there, why not us? "What are you talking about?" asked noisms' fiancée. "We're talking about the blog we're starting," he replied, "We're going to write a blog together, the pair of us. We're going to write about all of the things that interest and confuse us, all of the weird stuff that people take for granted and the crap that people go along with because they think that that's what they have to put up with these days." noisms said this in the same way that I had been telling people: saying it with the expectation that we would be recognised as creative individuals, people with something to say who were making themselves heard, who were taking the bull by the horns and doing it their way.

"Oh," said his fiancée, "So what?"

It said it all really. We're not special - no, correction, we're no more special than anyone else. We're just two guys who want to write about things that are important to us, things that we think are interesting, things that make us laugh and things that we want to share.

That's all.
