ob·ses·sion: redefining unreasonable preoccupations

I have just become a contributing writer for Forces of Geek. I write a monthly column called ob·ses·sion: redefining unreasonable preoccupations. Here is the start of my first article. Link to read more, see pretty pictures and subscribe!







This is a column about unreasonable preoccupations, a column about the minuet details that, momentarily or eternally, manage to seduce my mind with the call of their siren song. A man once said, “I know quite certainly that I myself have no special talent; curiosity, obsession and dogged endurance, combined with self-criticism, have brought me to my ideas.” That has been my excuse, my justification for my tendencies in life. It’s the answer I give when my family or boyfriend asks what I’m doing or why I haven’t slept in days. The more accurate response might be, “Well, dear family member/boyfriend, I have been reading about ISO, which used to be called ASA, which was short for American Standards Association, an association that rated the speed of film with a number such as ASA 50 or ASA 400, but now that we’re a more global community, ASA has fallen out of favor for the more universal ISO (International Standards Organization) rating, but they are in fact essentially the same, in as much as ASA 50 is equal to ISO 50, so it’s really just semantics, but those semantics have kept me up for precisely 72 hours, and now I need more coffee.” Instead, however, I resort to quoting the concise statement above because I figure it will more effectively communicate my point. Those words were good enough for the man who said them, (Albert Einstein), and I figure they'll do just fine for me.

So, in the future, when people give me funny looks about my own interests, I'm just going to redirect them to this post. This is truly marvelous. This is why blogs are great, so we can express our own interests, and share them with others who have the same passion, or who wish to learn about them. That's why I started www.pulpserenade.blogspot.com - so my love of old paperback mysteries can become some communicative exchange with other people via the net.
