Hey guys. My name’s Kevin, but call me Robbie. Make up nicknames, mess around with my initials, do something cool and call me by it, I’ll definitely pick some up if they stick.
I am new to the world of blogging, because see, up until now I’ve always considered myself a classical kind of guy. Vintage, if you will. I’ve always and always will praise a softcover book with yellowed pages and blurred letters over a Nook™ or a Kindle™, there just is no comparison. It’s really the same as playing a Vinyl instead of a CD, you know the quality isn’t going to be that great, but there’s something about lining up the needle and dropping it gently on the record that makes the whole music-listening experience a lot better.
The same applies to the act of writing, up until now I’ve always thought classically, that writing should be done in journals with inky pens that stain your jeans. At bus stops, the back porch, school. Pretty much anywhere and everywhere, Jack Kerouac style. Which is cool, - sitting below a flickering street lamp jotting down lines in iambic pentameter on a napkin - but I came to the realization that although I’ll surely continue carrying pens in my pockets, it’s almost 2011. We are living in the fucking future.
So here I am, for you guys and girls that I know breathe artistic. I’m going to give you a different spin on this modern day of ours, my thoughts, my views, things that I pick up along the way. That’s the point of this thing right?
Also, meet my turtle.
