It has been quite a while since I have made an effort to do anything of significance on my website. After I returned from Ecuador, I found that many habits had shifted. My time emphasis moved around and many of my projects in progress were put to the wayside for further evaluation. I did not desire to work on the website at the time, partially because I had to figure out my schooling (I switched my major from one engineering discipline to another) and the other because I had to re-figure my priorities.
Now that I seem to have a better grasp on what is whirling around (and the fact that I have been decently bored recently, having taken out “videos and other moving-visual media” out of my week for Lent). I had an extra few hours on my hands today, so I came back here to poke around and found that there is still so much that I can–that I want–to do on this blog. So as a little kick-starter to celebrate my re-entrance into the blogging world, I want to announce that all the Running Man links are fixed (yes, all 190 episodes…)! I will continue to maintain some of the video-entertainment side, but I am switching the emphasis here. I don’t particularly want this site to be known as the “site to find -Insert TV Show-” rather I want to build a community where there is more or less an exchange and presentation of new and different perspectives: an interactive community.
It shames me to see good ideas go uncontested. Why? Not just for the sake of argument, but because contesting a present point means that the reader isn’t silent. Too much of my generation has been pulled into the devastating cycle of absorb and consume without a thought to contribute a comment or opinion. On the other hand, trolling just to troll is not acceptable. I’m sure most can agree with that. But those well-thought-out arguments, the cases with evidence and reasoning, should be encouraged much more than it is. Don’t be a silent surfer, but don’t be brash. Speak up.
I have decided that I want to make this more of a blog community rather than an “official website” or anything of that nonsense. I want to get to know the CultureQuote community more and present the quirkiness I find around me everyday (feel free to point out any quirks you have noticed of your own). I know this is a lofty goal, all in all, but I also know that the international blog-o-sphere community is great. Please don’t be shy to proffer opinions for improvements or even simply drop a line for something cool you’d like to see. And thank you for all of your continued support.
