Brain Salad Surgery
Not only was I a fan of Swiss artist H. R. Giger even before this album was released in that greatest of all rock years, 1973, but this has always been my favorite ELP album and I love that title! "Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends. Come inside; come inside!"
I know that many of you may have been caught off guard when I abandoned Palin Babygate late yesterday, but I assure you that it was just a long time coming. If not for obvious concern over what I knew a year ago would become the incendiary subject of my sixth book, I never would have launched Palin Babygate as a separate blog in the first place. I would have written all the same posts, but they would have been here on my regular blog. I use that descriptive because most authors have a blog or website with which to communicate with their readers and announce and promote new releases. Nonfiction in a Fictional Style (NIAFS) has always been my regular blog. I also have Tiddlerosis and PODBRAM, which have always been separate entities simply because they include a lot of material that has little to do with my books. Anyone who looks closely can see the obvious pattern. It is practically impossible to remain consistently active on several blogs simultaneously. One always seems to dominate at any given time, and that time for Palin Babygate is past. By now I am sure you all have learned that Gryphen has just unleashed what finally might be an iceberg headed for Wasilla and more MSM contact. I can only hope that The Big One has finally arrived to do some serious damage to the S. S. Palin Teflon Hull.
Sometime between now and May 1, I expect to dump the e-tabitha.com URL from this blog and everything else associated with my authorship. As with yesterday's change, this one has been a long time coming, too. Tabitha was the name of a lovable Balinese cat we had for sixteen years. The name was chosen nearly a decade ago when my wife and I were beginning to get really serious about playing with computers. We did not know at that time where the future would take us, and as it turned out, where we landed has been a huge surprise to both of us! For one thing, we never dreamed we would someday have sixteen cats, although we are down to only nine now! The NIAFS name popped into my mind one day as an accurate description of my writing and I have been slowly trying to develop that brand ever since. Please note that this blog answers to the name of NIAFS or e-tabitha.com for now, but this will soon change. I bought the Tabitha name for ten years and the contract runs out in May. The way things worked out has just been confusing for everyone. If you just train your browser to use niafs.blogspot.com now, you will never know the difference when the e-tabitha name is phased out. Anyone currently communicating with me through the tabitha e-mail name should change over to the ice9 name, since I plan to dump the Tabitha e-mail, too, as soon as I get a few loose ends cleared up.
I hope to get all the links and other navigational issues sorted out so the confusion will soon wane. I am not abandoning my readers, and I certainly hope to attract a few new ones as this blog continues, but if you expect much more about the Babygate issue from me, you may be disappointed. The details from my point of view have already been published in The Palin Matrix, currently the first book you will see if you search for Bristol Palin at Amazon! Whatever posts I write next all depends on how many gates, icebergs, and whoopie cushions the other bloggers manage to scare up in the future. As I have always maintained, I am not a journalist. I am not here to be the first to report the latest Babygate facts or evidence. I am here to steer the ship in the direction that I have known for far too long that America must go. My goal is to lead intelligent readers to the larger truth. That happens to be in the opposite direction of the brain salad surgery propagated by Sarah Palin and the mainstream media. My ultimate goal is not to sell books, but to lead a new American movement, one of true Christianity, compassion for our less fortunate citizens, and the reversal of the destructive Southern Strategy and the relentless income inequality that has infected our nation like a MRSA bug!
