All change! Well, not really. But the biggest change at It Is What It Is for a number of years, as we get a fresh new look. Not better, just a change. People are so fickle, you know. It's the content that matters. Anne had disliked the previous look since the start, which is nearly five years ago, and never said anything! I'd say she should get a life, but I wouldn't want her to get one before me. Hahaha. I joke, of course. I have the bestest life ever, and the reason people feign indifference towards me is jealously. Anyway, the change, yes, it's plainer, duller, less cool, uglier. But I needed to change it. Maybe I'll go back to the old look for the fifth anniversary, haha. No, if it changes again it will be more refined. Or something. It will probably never be dark on light, I like it light on dark, that will probably be forever, but who knows.
But the main reason I did it was I was changing some of the extras. I got rid of some links to some things that some naughty people have stopped updating. I got rid of the links to the feeds of those things, because I decided that if you use feeds you would be able to find them for yourself, and if you don't then I'm not going to teach you about them. It Is What It Is is not a feed evangelism zone. And I got rid of my old long-neglected podcast, although I vaguely hope to return with some sort of podcast at some time. I rearranged the stupid archive thing which won't start collapsed and takes up too much room - hopefully I can replace that with something better at some time. But there are new things, yes, new things!
Secondly is the blip.fm thing, where I will be adding a song a day for your, um, enjoyment? But firstly there is a thing from formspring, where you can ask me questions, anonymously or not, whichever you prefer, to help me to fill some space, I mean, to help me share my wisdom with you. Wikipedia rather oddly says that it became a craze in early 2010. Are we really late enough in the year to talk about early 2010 in the past tense? I suppose it could still be a craze. Anyway, I hadn't noticed it being a craze. I think I'm getting less reactionary - I'm more prepared to make changes in spite of the fact that the result will be more modish. But you can rest assured that the actual text will remain rarely modish. It will still be written by me, and as a result be mostly well ahead of the curve. So ahead of the curve, in fact, that the schtick will perhaps never become mainstream in your lifetime. But it is ahead of the curve, and not just outsider art. You'll have to just take my word for that, of course. But I'm sure your used to that by now.
