So we celebrated the 2-year Anniversary of the blog by disappearing for 2 months. I know, I know: the disappointment, the shame, the whole ethical bad faith thing. I could blame the disappearance of the free internet we were “borrowing” from our neighbor, or maybe the preparations for applying for tenure, or even trying to plan a wedding, or any of the other usual lame and self-serving excuses people of my ilk manufacture to rationalize their preening self-indulgences. But I won’t do that. Let’s instead pretend I was practicing my Hedonism Bot act, and claim that “I apologize for nothing!” while also noting, that if nothing else, we’re back. They’ll be a couple of things that will be back-posted, since, while incognito, I certainly didn’t stop brewing beer. Or having fun. Or being hedonistic. That would be ridiculous!
So, without further ado, on with the show!
