Since there are a lot of new folks around here I figured it may be helpful to slap together a quick user's guide. Especially since there are a number of people under the impression that this is Red's blog. Though she had an extended spell of blogsitting and still retains the privilege of being a contributor, rest assured this blog is solely under the administration of the Evil Genius. All three of me.
Feel free to browse back through the archives or sift through the tags for some of the more regular features. Smiths lyrics and Simpsons quotes are perennial favorites. I will often go on about cosmology or quantum physics. These posts are not nearly as popular. And then of course there is the list. (That long ass non-hierarchical string of items between my profiles and my graphic blogroll. The ones I have already written about are linked on the list.)
The WILATU list stared well after the blog. "What I like about the universe" is a phrase I have long used sarcastically to illustrate that I hate everything in existence (myself included.) I have used it as a title for one of my favorite mix CD's. And I then used it for the title of my blog. (Despite the confusing domain name derived from one of my numerous self-granted titles: Rock and Roll Astronaut.) The list began as I tried very hard to prove to myself that I don't hate everything. I certainly don't hate coffee, and I most assuredly do not hate women. By re-examining the things I truly enjoy, I hoped to be able to pull myself out of a downward spiral of negativity.
It didn't work.
But it does still make for good blog fodder. So I am continuing on with the list.
