Hello blogosphere!

Some of you might remember my old website, also called A Trailer Full of Tunes. It lived on the Hampshire College faculty/staff server. I put it up in 1996 after teaching myself html. I was righteously opposed to WYSIWYG programs back then, and virtuous about writing my own code in my Unix shell. But that was a lot of work, and the trailer fell into disrepair over the past few years. Its life is now about to come to an end, with Hampshire set to pull the plug on my account any day now.

But rising like a phoenix from the ashes is the newly-created blog version of the trailer. The blog will feature the same sorts of things: politics, music, movies, art, travelogues, links to interesting sites, etc. I may even be inspired to republish some of the best of the old trailer, like the story of the road trip to the twineball, if there's sufficient interest and if a long, cold winter keeps me indoors with time on my hands. Or perhaps I'll have some new adventures to write about. Stay tuned.
