This site benefits/suffers/both from consisting of posts about a wide range of topics, all linked under the amorphous heading “data-driven storytelling.”
In an attempt to impose some coherent structure, I am organizing related posts both chronologically and thematically.
Having run through the primary themes of this blog…
- American politics
- film noir/NOIR CITY
- interrogating memory and identity
- bipartisanship/social civility
- popular music
- true crime
…all that remains are a few personal odds and ends which defy easy characterization, although the first two have been referenced obliquely in a few of the preceding organizational posts.
–An attempt to find the good news from the year 2016
–A literal collection of “odds and ends” from July 2017
–How difficult it can be to separate the art from the artist who produced it.
–Some thoughts on St. Valentine’s Day (spoiler alert: thumb down) followed by some absurd and funny bits.
–A sampling of my taste in fiction, based upon a Facebook challenge (show one book a day for seven straight days with no explanations):
Oscar Wilde/George Bernard Shaw
–Random facts about me
For my 100th post…100 random facts
–My struggles with the unnecessary fictionalization of history
–Explorations of my life through films:
All culminating in an attempt to rank my 100 favorite films.
And that is about it.
Well, not quite…a post about random blog posts should be accompanied by a random photograph of random things:
Until next time…
