If you'll allow me, I would like now to draw a comparison from 'Spice of Life' to a far superior (at least in its earlier seasons. season 8 was the last really good one.) work, The Simpsons. For the chalkboard gag at the beginning of "Sweet Seymour Skinner's Baddasssss Song," the series' 100th episode, Bart write something along the lines of "I will not celebrate meaningless milestones." And really what is there to celebrate at my arrival to this arbitrary number whose celebrated position is dependent upon the fact that we have 10 fingers? Well, it means that I've lasted for a while. It took me a little over a year to get this far, so there's certainly some dedication to 'Spice of Life.' And that's pretty cool.
So, what can we look forward to in upcoming posts? How will 'Spice of Life' be kept bold and refreshing, avant-garde but maintaining its respect for the past? For one, I plan on working harder on my posts, taking more time with them and actually rereading them before putting them on the site. If nothing else, you should see a higher quality in the grammar department. Also, I plan on starting two new styles of posts. First, call it laziness or that nod to the past, I plan on putting up some stuff I wrote in high school, scholarship and college essays, stuff that was supposed to reveal the real me. Some of them are kind of funny. Secondly, I have started what I call a 'Humanity' collection. Composed of lines and passages taken from all manner of sources (literature, poetry, song, comic, manga, movie), they are what I have found to be some of the most profound and meaningful things I have come across. So, I'll post those as I desire and write a little on what makes them click with me. I've also been working on a short story. As soon as that is at a good point, I plan on making that available here for open reviewing. Something to look forward to, I guess.
In all truth, I'm not even sure if this is the 100th post. Blogger, says that this is my 103rd post, but I'm fairly certain that I wrote two post drafts, which I never put up but may have counted towards the post total. And that's only what I remember. It's more than possible I wrote other drafts that never came up, so it's possible that a few posts back was the true milestone.
