Suppose I say...

I'm never satisfied.  I mentioned in my last article that I think the reason I never really blog over here anymore is because I didn't like the old layout.  Well, that old layout didn't last too long.  I've owned this domain for well less than a year and this is, I believe, the third different layout.  I think this one is pretty sleek, but I should point out that I've only tried it in Chrome.  Because I'm lazy.  I meant to get a look at it on a bunch of different browsers, but I completely forgot until just this second.

If anybody notices any bugs, let me know via twitter.  I'm @thinksojoe

Goings on

 Here are some things I've been a part of online in recent weeks:

PUCK YOU!  Season 3.1:  The 2011-2012 Season Begins (Part 1 | Part 2):  The PUCK YOU! hockey discussion panel kicks off it's third season in a two parter at Wonderpod-Online!

ThinkSoJoE's Thoughts - just stop already:  My latest rant on the world of professional wrestling.  This time I take on heel authority figures, at BoredWrestlingFan.com.

One place that hasn't seen much of me lately is my very own website, thinksojoe.com.  I've been neglecting it.  I want to change that, and I think the way to go about it is to change the look again.  I'm not happy with it.  Some things will stay - I like the twitter thing at the top, that's staying.  We'll see what happens.

Well...

I was going to start a new blog wherein I did product reviews for pretty much anything and everything.  In fact, I've already got it set up at thinksojoe-reviews.blogger.com, and I was planning on getting started tonight.  However, the site I was going through in order to find reviews to do has these minimum requirements for blogs who want to do that kind of stuff, and that site doesn't meet a damned one of them.  So instead I tried to use this site.  I have at least 10 posts, which have presumably a minimum of 200 words in each (save for the first one), been active for a minimum of three months (the first post was early May, it's late August now), and searchable on Google, which it is.  Yet, I was rejected for "not meeting the minimum requirements."  So I tried the old blog, thinksojoe.thinksobrain.com - and once again I was rejected.  I'm not sure why, that blog has been around forever and easily meets the minimums.  Oh well, I guess I'll try to go a different route.  Meanwhile, I'm down with reviewing anything anybody wants to send my way, and I will certainly post it on the new blog linked here earlier.

UPDATE:  I'm now able to use the site I was trying to sign up with via an old blog that didn't exactly make the minimum requirements - http://thinksojoe.blogspot.com

An open letter to Nate Beutel

Dear Nate Beutel,

I just took a glance at your article on the N-W school board on the front page of today's edition.  I'm very concerned about a number of things in your opening sentence:  "It's going to get a whole lot easier for board members, school personnel, community members and yes --- even members of the media --- to get their hands and eyes on board of education materials from the Niagara-Wheatfield Central School District."

While the words make perfect sense, I'd like to correct some punctuation and capitalization mistakes (with notes in parenthesis).  Ahem.  "It's going to get a whole lot easier for board members, school personnel, community members, (you missed the comma) and yes, (a comma, not a dash) even members of the media (no need for a dash here, either) to get their hands and eyes on Board of Education (it's a proper name, thus it should be capitalized) materials from the Niagara-Wheatfield Central School District."

I'm just a blogger, so I could be wrong, but I just thought I'd let you know how I would write said sentence.

-Sincerely,
Joseph Kent 

This entry is written in response to the article "Board info on the Web" by Nate Beutel of the Niagara Gazette.  I tried to post it on the Gazette facebook wall, but it contained too many characters.

New Material?

I was walking down the street with Mrs. ThinkSoJoE yesterday, and I got hit with a huge wave of inspiration.  I think sometime soon, I will be self-recording my first song since I left thinksobrain last October.  I've got it pretty much written, and I have the music in my head, so it's just a matter of recording.  Yeah, I think it's gonna be epic.

Not to spoil the surprise, but I will tell you that it's definitely not going to be something you'd expect from me.  I'll be posting here as I progress with recording this - and I will have a video for it, whether I have to do it with my webcam, my cell phone, or borrow a camcorder.  Look out for the next big thing on YouTube!
