notes from
the MUCK . . .

How does your garden grow? With muck, muck and more muck! I spent much of today finishing the final muck box and then shifting muck from one box to the next. The first box, which the Big Lad is enthusiastically pointing out, has been rotting down for two years now and once we’d removed the top quarter of unrotted material, we found we’d hit the pay dirt.

A Pledge

Since launching the Muck prior to Vegas 2005, it has become increasingly apparent to all of us that this blogging business is not as easy as it sounds. Well, the mechanics of it are certainly a cinch, but it's that whole "content" thing that really brings the endeavor to a screeching halt. With three of us contributing, you would think that at least one of us would have something interesting to say, at least once a day. Clearly, this has not been the case. But really it's you, the reader, who ends up suffering the most from these bouts of creative constipation. Therefore, I'm hereby making a pledge of productivity to all the good folks at I solemnly swear to post something, anything, at least once a day, Monday through Friday, every week. Matthew already suggested in a recent development meeting that all three of us aim for this lofty goal, and I think he's got the right idea. So, as crazy as it sounds, we're finally going to add the missing piece of the puzzle to this little project. And it's a piece I now realize that all blogs should contain - namely, something to read.

Now let's take a step back and think about what this means. Frankly, it means that many of my posts will suck more than they already do. By committing myself to quantity, quality might inevitably suffer. If anyone truly cared, that fact might give me pause. Fortunately, no amount of artistic integrity can hold me back. I don't care what it is, if I can't think of anything more interesting by 5:30pm, I'm putting it up, goddamnit.

Hold onto your hats, the Muck's going a' bloggin.
