While the rest of the mainstream media has ignored many of the "Goner Board" heroes, I've tried to use the contacts I have to help promote them. You probably don't know anything about that, and don't know anything about me.
I like a lot of different things, and I am not ashamed to admit them when ithey're not especially popular.
My website is and always has been a personal weblog about things that have to do with me. There are millions out there just like them. The only purpose it has other than archiving my personal life is to promote Memphis and all the things that I think are great about it. It's no secret to my personal friends the problems I have with certain music, people, parts of the government, the city, I'm no Pollyanna by any means. I would just rather participate in an intelligent discussion about these things than just bitch and rant in order to look cool.
It's so easy to tear things down, and so much harder trying to make something happen, which I will continue to do whether you see any relevence to it or not.
It's no secret to me that many people on this board may want to disassociate with me because of my lack of authenticated Goner coolness, I'm not an idiot. However, on a one-on-one basis, I have a pretty good repoire with most because for the most part I know what I am talking about and we all know that the internets is an act and not a true sum of who a person is.
I'm gonna give you the same benefit of the doubt.
