Interlude: Full Circles, etc

This blog is approaching its second birthday.

For those who came in late, I started TF towards the end of March 2005 after dropping out of first year Arts at Melbourne Uni after one month to reinvent myself as a freelance disumbrationist. Blogging was central to this scheme.

It seemed like the right thing to do at the time and in hindsight, it was. All kinds of strange and great things happened after that.

Now, twenty-four months on, and I’m back giving MU a long-planned second go. Things have changed in all kinds of ways in those two years. In many ways dramatically for the better.

But would you believe I’m yet again finding arts-studentdom pretty stressful, and kind of silly, and kind of tedious, and I don’t really entirely know why I’m doing it, whether I want to be, or what the bastard hell I’m fucking doing at goddamn all.

I’ve also been thinking a lot about whether this whole anniversarial-full-circle-juncture thing means it’s time to put Trysting Fields to bed.

But reading over my archives here always puts things in perspective, and cheers me up.

My blog makes me happy. I like it. And it’s not Done. I’ve decided.

Here’s a word from our sponsor, Solomon from Gummo:

    Yeah, I’m basing my film club season around Gummo.
    You’ve (re)inspired me.
    Which gives me an excuse to watch it again, as recollections of my original viewing are, ahem, quite disjointed and hazy.

  2. Hey, your blog puts a smile on my dial too..
    My astrologer partner says Mercury is now out of retrograde (which fucks up all attempts of communication), so I expect much reinvigorated blogging to happen.
    Its funny, its not like I’ve had any shortage of things to blog about, but I’ve been hitting a bizarre self censorship button. Maybe time to throw caution to the wind…

    Yay!

    Heh. (Repeated viewings might not rectify this – but any excuse is a good one. IMHO.)

    Maybe so; maybe so.
    Er, I mean: Yes. Without doubt.

    Xenia, Ohio is just down the road from Antioch College. Dave Chapelle lives there these days. I had Thanksgiving dinner with him once.
