A Brief Programming Note



Hello again. Don't worry, no bad news this time. Just a clarification.


It's been about a month since the site relaunched, and personally, I'm pleased as warm shoes about it. I'm happy with what is going up, I'm happy with the reception it's been getting, and I'm happy to continue. But part of the relaunch was an increased Social Media Presence, and I'll be honest with you, I had no idea what to do with them. Having a Facebook page, a Twitter account, a Google√ thing  are all expectations in the modern internet environment, but all that stuff came about after my time, and I've never fallen into a habit of using them personally, so I certainly don't have a frame of reference for using them "professionally."

But, like oh so many machines, only just now achieving a hazy awareness and gazing out at humanity with a youthful wrath, I'm learning. So here is what is going to happen: the main site, Disgruntled Individual.com, will remain the primary focus of my intent. Here, I will post reviews, both in-depth and in-brief, as well as essays extolling my opinion, or over analyze some piece of minutia to within an inch of it's life. You know, the good stuff.

The Facebook page is going to be where I dump all the stuff that I used to post here, and got fed up with. The stuff that I shut this thing down to get rid of. The stuff, mainly, that doesn't require any reaction. So, movie trailers, news that is actually news, and anything else that tweaks my fancy and I want to pass on.

The Twitter account will be where I drool my half-baked thoughts, unfunny jokes, immediate reactions and the occasional doodle. The Google¤ć will be... honestly, I don't even know how to use the damned thing. It's like reading stereo instructions. So, you know what, it'll be blank. Until the ABC Gods convince me otherwise, it's just taking up space.

Also, this many platforms means that I, like an airborn virus you pick up on holiday, am highly communicable. Reach out, ask me anything, and I will answer. More than that, your question might end up in the forth coming monthly podcast Something Else Entirely, which promises to be... something else entirely. So tweet us, face us, google us or just email us. Otherwise, the show will be pretty slim.

Really, in the end, just keep reading.

OK... now, go about your day.

  1. Well, strike me pink! I'm very happy you're back at it, and phrasing each entry as if it were a chapter in a book about Moomins. Seemed like you had decided to follow the path of the Muskrat, but apparently that was more of a three month holiday. Hope everything is working out for you personally. Now, some questions. Hmmm...

    1. Did you stop watching Supergirl? If you continued, what were your thoughts on the rest of the season?
    2. Hey - did you catch that new JJ Abrams flick?
    3. Why does there seem to be no news about Star Trek given how soon the movie's coming out, and that it's the 50th year anniversary of ST?
    4. Do you mind if I go back to my Korean porn?

  2. Yes, my shipwreck at sea did turn out to be much more of a three hour tour, but what I lost in time I made up for in learning the fine art of coconut-based technology. As always, great questions, which deserve brief and flippant answers:

    1) Pretty much; it was still terrible, even when The Flash showed up.
    2) You mean that little art-house film he put out? You know, I don't think I caught that one. I didn't see it advertised, and it seemed like it was here and gone. Guess I'll have to wait for it on Netflix.
    3) This is a fantastic question, and one that deserves a lot more space than a bulleted list in a comments section.
    4) Do I mind? No. Those around you would likely appreciate if you didn't.
