Hello all. It’s me, that voice from the past, forgotten for so long, having finally clawed it’s way out from beneath the tons of academic and mental rubble strewn across my way by the malevolent Board of Studies and bourgeois associates. As Oscar Wilde once said:
“Examinations, sir, are pure humbug from beginning to end. If a man is a gentleman, he knows quite enough, and if he is not a gentleman, whatever he knows is bad for him.”
But then again Oscar Wilde also said that “Quotation is a serviceable substitute for wit.” so aren’t I a bit of pretentious twat?
Things that have happened since we corresponded last include my cultivation of interesting facial hair for the purpose of theatrics, several life changing experiences, the continual evolution in my understanding of reality and society, and interesting developments in regard to tastes in fashion that have inadvertently lead to the spawning of a sort of alter-ego. Stranger things have happened I suppose, but not to me.
But bear with me. I’ll probably put up something intelligent here sooner or later. Then again, I might not, for that is the nature of this absurd and incomprehensible universe.
