All 4 You



From yesterday, a real post: Me freaking out about what Palin means for basketball in this election.

As far as blogs go, this site has always slept soundly in the Stone Age. That's because, by and large, I think technology, and the aesthetic it ushers in, are ugly. But we have lately realized that we need to boost traffic to direct more people toward the book and that, while I hate lots of what I've written before last week, newcomers to FD are at this points actively discouraged from exploring the archives.

So in the spirit of science and rediscovery, I just spent about three hours tagging every post that came after the great Flickr purge of 2007. Everything before that looks like shit, and you venture their at your own user-peril. But now, about 200 posts are ordered by more than date alone. Too many of them are "playoffs," and I'm rapidly losing my handle on when to use "personality" but not "psychology" (and the other way around). Also, "style" seems like it could go everywhere. Thus, I'll cop to have done an imperfect job. Hopefully it will still open up the site a little, and maybe even spark debates on what were at times arbitrary classifications on my part.

Curiously, only like two posts warranted a "potential" label. Seems like we've decided to either hedge our bets, or pretend that someone like Anthony Randolph has already arrived.

SELLOUTS. jk. it'll be interesting to see who the book appeals to outside of the die hard FD'ers.

Speaking of the book, is there any sort of bulk purchasing deal? I'm considering them as wedding present for my groomsmen. Seriously.

I have just founded a new website that begins to address nu trends within the above discussed technological aesthetic.

It is also entirely about professional basketball.

Nothing has been tagged yet but as most of the posts will include in-depth (visual) discussions of Juwan Howard's current role within the jean shorts/pristine white sneakers party circuit, I foresee a very nuanced sorting system.

anyways check it out, it looks disgusting:

Gotta say it.. using the wrong "there" whilst shilling for hits makes for a poor bid at legitimacy.

I love your work, though. Keep fighting the good fight.
