I'm a nerd

Something I've noticed about a lot of other blogs is that they tend to mix in more personal interests.  I dabbled a bit by mixing in some music and the like but didn't really receive any response to it.

As I've gotten older I've become a rather huge nerd.  In my younger days I tended to avoid nerding out on hobbies unless they were "cool" and acceptable to be that way about.  e.g. if I got super into guitar gear or music no one would bat an eye.

When I got older I stopped caring about what other people thought and delved into a handful of hobbies that I didn't pursue in my younger days.  These included things like Japanese RPG video games, Anime, Manga, and the like.  I'm also a huge fan of film and premium-channel serial dramas (e.g. think Dexter first 2 seasons) that I tend to follow until they stop, even if they started sucking at some point I manage to follow them until the end. 

Being that I have a pretty extensive number of movies I've seen from ~1929-1995, I've been exposed to a lot of different material from many countries and in many languages.  As such, I don't really have a genre of choice in the media I consume. I will pretty much watch anything as long as it is very good for what it is trying to be, or fails so badly that it is amazing when looked at in a comical way (It's so bad it's good).

At some point I also got into vintage pin-up art (especially Vargas) as well as collecting old illustrations from the Saturday Evening Post, Maxfield Parrish, and the like.  

I've been looking for other topics to write about as breaks from writing fs01 and there aren't always D/s related topics to write about.

I guess what I'm wondering is if people have any desire to see any of those other interests of mine or they'd rather me just stick to my topics or not write at all.

I'm open to either.


  1. I like to get to know someone's story through their blog, to see a multi-dimensional person. I don't need the detail of someone's hobbies or interests but I am interested in stories that show glimpses of their multiple dimensions. I like to get a sense of 'oh they do x' or 'they like y' as part of them as a whole person.


    1. Thank you, Ferns.

      I tend to gravitate toward some extremes and often float between things as an "all in" or "all out" obsession for a period of time which occasionally makes it difficult to integrate that into some writing.

      As the D/s in my life currently has no "present tense" aside from the fiction I am writing, I will try to find that balance in other ways.

  2. I'm with Ferns on this. I've enjoyed reading all your writings since discovering your blog. Write away. :-) Penney

    1. Thank you, Penney.

      I will see how I can integrate some of these interests into the whole of life for their applicable eras.

  3. It's your blog, fur. Just write what you want. If someone isn't interested in a particular subject, they just don't have to read it. As far as premium channel dramas are concerned, you're missing a lot if you don't have Netflix or Amazon Prime. Pay the price - you'll have a multitude to choose from.

    1. Thank you, Lady Grey.

      We stream quite a bit with Netflix, Hulu, Amazon and have stream access to most of the cable premium channels as well (HBO Go etc). They are definitely good to have. If I really like something I tend to get it on Bluray or DVD just in case it poofs from streamland as things often do.

      I guess I just get weird when it comes to writing about non-D/s topics.

      Take care.
