7 years ago, I started a little blog.
I didn’t really know for sure what I was doing at the time, but I knew it was what I needed to be doing.
For a few years, the crew and I told a few funny stories and a few serious stories. We hosted a few events and started a few movements. Heck, at some point, I think we saved a few lives and that was super cool. The crew grew and shrunk and grew again; but our family of supporters never stopped growing. So we wrote some more, did some designs, pissed off some prominent people and had some great discussions. But…life happened as it often does and things went the way they often do. I can’t speak for everyone else, but I had a damn good time doing it and I would do it all over again if I could.
So I am. Only a little differently.
For those of you that were part of the original journey, welcome to the new digs. For those of you that are new to this, don’t worry – you didn’t miss much.
Welcome to DR. My name is iCon and I’ll be your host for the next couple of years, provided my organs maintain their integrity. This blog is where I take my brain out for a walk and let it speak on what it’s seen out there in this crazy, stupid, beautiful country and world.
A few house rules before we officially get this party started. Leave all prejudices with your shoes at the door; unless you have smelly socks in which case, leave the prejudices, keep the shoes. No hats allowed – unfortunately there is a strict “open mind” policy here. If you want to fight, please take it outside so you don’t startle the cats (they’re sleeping). Also, kindly remember that the doors stay open, so if you feel like you don’t like it here, you can leave as easily as you came. Kindly do so as quietly as well.
As always, there are snacks and refreshments in the corner. The tea is on Twitter. Please keep the smoking outside cause my cats have addictive personalities. If you have any questions, we’ve stashed some answers here. If you have any answers, you can reach me here.
Let us try not to do anything too illegal in here because Big Brother is often watching. Other than that, let’s discuss, let’s build and let’s see if we can’t start a revolution this time around. Drop a comment and let’s chat.
