For those who were reading my earlier blog, The Black Torrent Guard, the title of this post likely sums up your thoughts. Given I haven't posted upon it since 2008, this number is likely few. Nonetheless, I feel explaining why I chose to abandon the Blogspot ship and declare "New Dealer" will simultaneously serve as a good mission statement to get this new endeavor off the ground.
I don't like to obsess over my statistics, but I notice a sizable percentage of people coming from f295.org, a large (the largest?) pinhole photography web forum. Hopefully not just for my bummer story about gallery openings. A welcome to you all anyway, maybe you guys are interested in modern music as well? I should really change the header to swap out "foodyism" with "pinhole photography". Equal in dignity and pretension, savvy?
First posts are always awkward, especially for readability, but falling out the door is better than not coming outside at all. There's also a heavy sense of purpose, the need to make it some sort of manifesto. But the hell with that noise.
