Something original and unique or completely horrible

I didn’t know people reviewed blogs, but apparently they do! A reader has reviewed me on Scribnia:

Shaun Green manages to put literature, gaming, punk Rock all together to somehow turn this into a blog. It hosts or points at his fiction, book, music, game, film reviews, info about his musical projects, and other general bloggery. Honestly when i saw the name Nostalgia For Infinity, I thought what a terrible name. I still dont know what im reading about, Shaun Green either has something orignal and unique or completely horrible. I find his book reviews to be much more interesting than reading about his music reviews, but still nothing amazing..

“Still nothing amazing” smells like a tagline to me!

For what it’s worth, I’ve considered splitting the different strands of content into separate blogs in the past, but others persuaded me against it. I’m now fairly comfortable simply writing about what interests me. I can only hope that a few other people share some of my interests and enjoy reading some of what I write. Thanks to the author of the review above for sharing their views!

Oh yes, and the name of the blog is a relic from back before I learned to use WordPress. It’s a reference to some of SF author Al Reynold’s novels. The other names I considered were Haste Killed Creativity and Muscles Burning Alcohol and Nicotine because holy crap did I love Against Me! at the time.

    That’s unfair Rach, everyone’s entitled to their opinion. I certainly don’t view myself as a particularly skilled writer or a reviewer. :)

    Heh. Your “Nostalgia for Infinity” is much like my “herdivineshadow” – I still like Lexx, but it’s gotten to the point where I look at my usual sn and it no longer resembles 3 words shoved together anymore. It’s lost all actual meaning.

    Sometimes, just sometimes, I try to take a step back and think “What would I think of it now, without any awareness of a Canadian/German Sci-Fi series?” and just…fail at answering.

    Yeah, definitely, you reach a point where a word or phrase loses whatever original meaning it had and becomes a signifier for something else. I get the same thing with bands I listen to a lot who are named for uncommon words.
