Metaschrift

I noticed today that my rate of posts in 2007 has easily outpaced any year since I started the blog. But I also had the chance to re-read my posts from 2004 -- and they're actually really good! (It reminds me a little bit of when I cracked open my literature and philosophy essays from my sophomore year and found them mostly uninformed but totally cogent, fun to read, and perfectly argued. I wondered then, and now, just what happened.)

I think I devoted more time and thought per post then, but it's fun to see the range of interests that I already had established -- literature, movies, music, electoral politics (especially big that year, mostly poured into Young Philly Politics this year), and cities.

Anyways, if you're relatively new to the blog, or just feeling nostalgic/curious, check out the old stuff. You won't be sorry.

A regular Friday afternoon "Short Schrift Greatest Hits" post wouldn't be a bad idea...

The implication behind "Friday afternoon" being that you need a full and relatively event-free weekend to read some of these long posts.

Ah hahahahaha. Well, yes, clearly they would be presented as well-designed PDFs ;-)
