Vices we love: Moody Blues

Moody Blues

This is the man, the myth, the legend in his own mind, speaking to you live from Seoul. See, the thing about writers is that we are loners. We are moody. Quite a few of us drink until our livers look like swiss cheese. We write best in a dark Colorado skiing lodge, preferably in proximity to an axe, as Jack Nicholson so capably showed.

We also spend quite a lot of time on style- this is because the substance is always the same. To quote the Barenaked Ladies, philosophers par excellence: "And if I say I love you dear you'll just yawn and say it's all been done. " And it has all been done. I've loved, I've lost, I've been poor, I've been middle class (no riches just yet), I had great days/jobs/friends/lovers/moments and horrid ones.

Originally I picked up the interview style idea (by picked up, I mean stole) from a fellow Asia traveler. But it is probably getting old. So while the interviews may make a return on occassion, (if you know how to spell occassion please leave a comment) they are likely to be greatly reduced in number.

The ridicoulus moodiness (if you know how to spell ridicoulus, please leave a comment) however, will remain.

Hi - I was looking for blogs about taekwondo and came across yours. Some interesting topics you discuss. In any case I have a taekwondo school in Dallas, TX. Keep up the great blogging.
