well folks, i’ve been gone for a little over a week, just as i’d suspected. it’s amazing how quickly one can mentally unplug from the internet stream and its current b.t.w.... anyhow there is good news and bad, and, as is often the case, they are one and the same. the good/bad news is this: the site will remain dormant for an indeterminate period. it’s bad news because those of you who read the site religiously, cultishly, drawing all your mental and emotional sustenance from our content, refreshing your browser window again and again like a shivering addict will have to find something else to distract you from reality. (weirdoes.) it’s good news because while the dust-bunnies start forming in the space between these old sentences, and the tumbleweeds roll through the margins, i will be busily redesigning and reshaping the nonist.
likely many of you will gasp, or at very least sigh, and say “but it aint broke!” to which i can only respond, “aint is not a word, you lazy, lazy person.” the truth is i looked at the site one day recently and thought “my god i’m tired of looking at this.” and that’s all it took really. i’m a restless type and i intend to shake things up for my own selfish amusement and throw away years of hard work, for no particular reason, whenever i damn well please! in all honesty this site is in need of some streamlining, some back-end clean-up, some re-focussing, and a good juicy jolt from the design defibrillator. (clear!)
so folks, in short, please be patient while i tear down a perfectly good web site, break all your links, and continue the endless, impossible search for visual and functional perfection. i will return as soon as this task is complete, though i can’t say when exactly that will be, not more than a few weeks with any luck, after which the nonist will hopefully rise majestically from the off-white and orange ashes. wish me luck, and i wish you luck too.
