Firefly

Just saw the last episode of Firefly. Love it! The whole TV show, which unfortunately only consists of 14 episodes. Great characters with interesting developments, many yet unsolved mysteries (possibly for ever, but Joss is saying that he wants to tell the whole story, sooner or later) involving the characters, interesting interactions between the already interesting characters. And I like the idea of flying around in space taking different missions (often not quite legal, though the crew is still pretty good guys) to get cash. It has a great adventurous feeling to it, as it is done so well. But the real strength is the characters, just like with the Buffy and Angel shows.

When I watch any of those three shows I feel things. It's like the world suddenly has colors again. And when I stop watching, I sometimes go through a kind of transition period where I feel the contrast between how I feel in response to those shows, and to my own life.

Welcome

This'll be my first REAL post.

To tell the truth, I'm not sure what kind of stuff I'd like to write about in my blog. I have this diffuse need to communicate, and I always have things going on in my mind. I'm just not sure which of it I'd like to express. My plan is to experiment, improvise and learn as I go. Here are some guesses, which also to some extent serve as a further presentation of myself:

Objectivism. I'm an admirer of Ayn Rand, and a follower of her philosophy
(to the best of my knowledge and ability, and as far as I agree with it).
I'd be suprised if I didn't write some on that, sometimes.

Cultural imperialism. Not suprisingly, I'm likely to like writing about
things that I like. Go buy Whedon's Firefly at once.

Computer science, being what I study and all. But I dunno.

Issues. I have my fair share of those, including social anxiety (or social
phobia, if you prefer).

I'm not likely to write about politics or current (political-ish) events, as
I'm not very interested in that (even though I have some views.)

Lastly, english is not my first language, so anything that might look like
fallacies, errors, crucial omissions and the like, can safely be assumed to
be errors of language. :D

That's all for now.

My first post

This is my first post, and it is really just a test to see if everything is working.

Test.
