Out with the old, in with the nucleus

Filed under: General Me — tomemos @ 12:29 am

Welcome to my shinier, lovelier, workier blog! Unlike my swan song at Raptor, which reflected the irritating circumstances of my departure, my views of the future are nothing but rosy. Importing my past entries was a breeze, I have a Recent Comments thing (love those), and I’ll look into the song tracker so you can always know when I’m going through a Elton John phase or whatever. I’ve only had two problems since moving here. The first was when I imported the old entries and comments—somehow (perhaps because the MT Blacklist has no power here) over 200 spam comments were added to old entries, pretending to be from you, my friends and confidants. I think I managed to delete them all without banning anybody, but let me know if you have any trouble commenting. (Your early comments may need to be approved by me, and approved they shall. Be. Approved.)

The second problem has to do with the one thing you can’t do at WordPress: put formatting in the blog titles. So my entry on Amazon’s Slim Jim offer, which on MT was titled “The Internet is for Porn Beef,” appeared here as “The Internet is for Porn Beef.” That lost a lot of the humor I intended—everyone knows the internet is for porn beef—so I changed it to “The Internet is for Porn/Beef.” If that’s unsatisfactory, you can always go back to Raptor and go wistfully through the archives. No, I will not give that link.

Thanks for joining me as I christen the new Tomemos!

Update: Man, it took me like no seconds to add an even better recent track listing, using RSS. As you can see, it’s all rap songs right now. No surprise there; I just finished GTA: San Andreas.

Coming soon I’ll be adding the rest of the links to other blogs and such. And writing a real entry.



  1. I hate to say it, but Beth Orton isn’t rap. You’re not hardcore, Tom, and you never will be as long as you listen to folk singers.

    Hurray for porn beef, though!

  2. What, are you not down with the B-O? I’m bumping that Central Reservation shit, that record’s tight. Representing the Norwich set.

    …I know that Beth Orton isn’t rap. I know. I made that update during a different, edgier musical moment. The moment is passed and I’m back to white ladies singing with guitars and computers.

  3. Internet is for (Porn|Beef)?

    RIP Raptor

  4. Welcome to WordPress! Yeah, I know, some things are not the same. I had considered coughing up the 15 bucks so I could mess with the css, but I like my new template a LOT (although I miss my pretty background pattern).

    Good to see you made the jump. You think we should start bugging Josh next?

  5. Good choice on top overall track! She’s on tour again in the Fall (is it Fall yet?). Also, I “friended” you on, so you can see all the crap I’m listening to, too.

    Good job on the jump.
