So I've got a Tumblr now

Yeah, I know you were all waiting on the edge of your seats for this. You were all thinking, "When is Ben going to get on that boat and produce interesting curated content instead of this BS OC he only sporadically delivers on his personal blog?"

I actually tried to use Tumblr a few months ago to stimulate my writing, which was in a faltering place at that time. I used it to publish "fragments" of fiction or pseudo-esoteric philosophizing. That didn't really work, though. It wasn't the right feels.

Now, I'm just copy-pasting YouTube links to sweet metal tunes. This is shallow, lame, and utterly useless in basically every sense... except to me, because it's fun to go back and look at what I was listening to a few weeks ago and smile over the mindset I was in that caused me to post it to Tumblr.  It's the same sort of satisfaction I get from reading the book reviews I post on this blog... or at least, the satisfaction I DID get while I still did that. I should do that again, too... maybe I'll call it "Extreme Book Review."

So, if you like metal, visit my Tumblr. Join me. Raise your first. &c.
