OMG - Since September 2008 to June 2010 I worked daily to reach my silent goal of 5000 posts. Of course, since I combined the features of both a tumblr and a straight blog in one place (because I like all my toys kept together), it was easier to reach that goal. This does not, however, diminish the sheer awesomeness of the achievement.
I have filled up 91% of my allowed space from BLOGGER so I doubt I will reach 6000 before running out. I know I will have no trouble finding content. In fact I actually do follow a pretty rigid editing process.
Ideas have about a day to either be posted or they just go away. Somethings come back around often because they are my pet interests but I still regret the ones that get away. Even my brain can hold only so much coolness.
My unlimited love to those of you who follow and comment. I know it can't be easy to like everything I talk about so thanks for turning a blind eye to those things that make you uncomfortable. I would like to tell you that I will stop those kind of posts but we both know how silly a pronouncement that would be.
In celebration of this event, I hope to have a new header up soon. I commissioned a piece of art from the fabulous Becca based on everything that is greatest about the Cave of Cool and I have every confidence that what she came up with will be terrific.
Cal's Canadian Cave of Coolness
I forever stand vigilant to protect this planet from the myriad of forces that are always against us. Be it the octopus, zombies, aliens or the robots my team of human agents, and our feline allies, circle the globe in a never ending struggle for human freedom.
I learn all I can on every subject that interests me. I especially enjoy ancient history because in the past there are valuable lessons to be found. Also, if I ever get my time machine to work properly, it would be good to know a bit about possible destinations and what to expect when I get there.
I greatly appreciate beautiful design. Be it manufactured or found naturally I am fascinated by the process of invention. I am attracted to the unique, the strange, the haunted. I like to share what I find on this blog.
And not let us forget the 'Cephalopod Menace' who, if allowed to, would wrap their tentacles around all that is good and pure in this life and crush it until it remained no more. They are creatures of pure spite. Hate is all they know. Death is all they do. They are our most ruthless and determined enemy.
So we fight. Selena has the celebrity contacts, the cat is ruthless and without pity, Roosevelt's ghost has the experience and I do the wetwork.
Fighting for the future of the planet doesn't have to be a chore, however. We can take the time to appreciate all that is cool in this world even as we cut the octopus into bite sized chunks.
This is the reason there has always been and must forever be, a Cave of Cool. Be sure to wipe your feet before you enter.
