Getting To the Bottom of Things

What is the Gin and Tonic Lounge all about anyway?
Mandarin Oranges?
Little girls called Monkey?
Christina Ricci?
Battlestar Galactica?
Strippers and booze?

It's hard to say really.

Well, just this morning, a co-worker, and frequent reader, told me about an article in Paste magazine, which may just solve the riddle once and for all.

The article talked about FOUR basic things. Four broad categories. Four topics of conversation. And it dawned on me, these four things are the meta-blog. They what this blog is. They are the structure of all things in the Lounge. They are the common thread that runs through all of the posts, dating back to those very early August excursions.

I want to explore each of those four things. Unfortunately, I don't have the time or energy to do them any credit tonight. So, that post will wait until tomorrow night. Consider this an advertisement.

    Let me guess: Sex, Booze, food, greed.

  2. No, those are the four things that describe me. The blog is a little different.

    The blog is about answering questions about sex, representations of sex, cultural framework of representations of sex, and the perception of that framework.

    The blog is about getting attention and maintaining that attention. Plain and simple.

    This blog makes me weep for the lost soul that I used to call my son. Brian, you can still come home to see me if you have a little remorse. Oh yeah, and cut back on the strippers.

  9. Sorry JC, once saved, always saved, or at least that's what my dentist taught me...
