Welcome to vdofisdpofi!

It’s supposed to be private so if you’re not me I don’t know how you got in here or what you’re playing at, quite frankly. In all likelihood I’ve done something wrong with the settings. Whatever,  just make sure you wipe your feet on the way in and don’t leave a mess on the carpet.

I assume that if you’re reading this you’re  probably me, and are therefore familiar with the inane ideas that bumble around my brain with the finesse of a pole vaulting donkey, so I’ll keep this brief. As you can see, this is one of those newfangled blog things. I’ve been writing lots of academic gubbins over the last few years and this has taken its toll on my ability to write sentences of less than 300 words. Vdofisdpofi! is basically a bit of a practice to get me  into the habit of writing other non-academic-y stuff.  The plan is to update the blog every couple of days with reviews, features, news stories, and that kind of thing. Rather than worrying too much about what I’m writing, I’m setting myself a  time limit of 1 hour for each entry in the hope this inspires me to whack something out as quickly as possible. You’ll quickly notice that I’m quite liberal with the punctuation. Sometimes this is a deliberate two-fingers up to grammar fascists like my girlfriend, sometimes it’s a sign of a much deeper incompetence that I unfairly blame on my comprehensive education.

In practice, vdofisdpofi! will be the interminable squelching brain fart that follows months of head constipation. It’s an attempt to finally evade the academic thought police and write things with swearing in them.

I like to think of vdofisdpofi! as a gravely misjudged interview for a job that doesn’t exist, or an unpaid job with no interview.

Good luck, whoever you are!
