First Blog Entry: November 20th 2005Hello world.
My name is Ed Sanderson and I'm currently a second year politics student here at Warwick. Although it's safe to say I'm a pretty unremarkable individual, the thought of blogging greatly interests me. Those who read this and know me, and expect a current affairs rant (or anything vaguely political) will be disappointed. I intend to use this blog to 'vent my spleen' on the day today (not The Day Today, which is a fine piece of satire, and much better than 'Broken News'). This is a space where I move away from political discussion and opinion and merely comment on my mudane existence. Therefore, I intend to keep this blog in a form of a diary, not a 'what I did today' journal, but a daily paragraph or so commenting on things that have intrigued and annoyed me as I go about trying to be as happy and amiable on the outside, whilst being as acidic and demented as hell on the inside…..
At this point, I should tell you about my interests. They are fairly general, to tell you the truth. My favourite band is the Kinks, my favourite actor is Marlon Brando, and my favourite colour is green, or purple, or red… I don't know what my favourite colour is. The tune that is in my head right now is Mr Brightside by the Killers, which kinda sums me up.
If you have any comments about what I write, please post them, although if I still have your attention, you must either be sadder than average (join the club, folks), or be my stalker, who'll I'll talk about in later editions.
Anyway, I'll love you and leave you, and keep your eye out for future posts.
The journey starts here…
All the best,
