WordPress, Live!

So yes, things look a bit different; I’m still tweaking. There are import issues with my old Moveable Type posts, of course (of course!), and the existing MT entries will be here by the end of the week. The thousand or so that were lost in the Great mySQL Disaster, well, I’ll code those one by one in all my copious spare time.

The sidebar’s still not complete; my pictures and links aren’t all there because WP handles the disparate parts of the template as, well, disparate parts. The old Reading, Listening, Rehearsing, and Performing lists on the sidebar have all been moved to a new blog page called “Currently Enjoying”.

In the meanwhile, things go on as usual.

Currently Reading, Writing, Hearing, & Playing

What am I doing in offline life? Take a look at what I’ve been reading, writing, listening to, rehearsing, and mark down when I’ll next be performing with one of the groups with which I play!
