For the fun of it, people. For the fun of it. Originally, my only desire to contribute to this blog stemmed from the impression that Justin has a lot of fun with it, and I wished to participate in that. Only later, when I was added as a co-author, did this question of purpose arise in my mind. I was confronted by my sudden powerlessness to write anything of significance. Let’s face that fact. I’m not about to pretend that anything I write is worth your time reading. I’m going to write for the fun of it.
Yet perhaps one can find a purpose even greater than that. I believe “The Bedlam” presents to us the knowledge of quaint amusements we find in our everyday. It is, in my firm belief, the small tidbits of absurdity that make one laugh the loudest. Whether or not Justin realizes this, I believe this series of blog posts that he has created celebrates this happy truth. I can only hope that my contributions will supplement what Justin has here.
Laugh, and no one may know what the heck you’re thinking, but at least you’re having fun.
Thanks for reading.
Secondly, "they" have been wrong before. "The grass is always greener on the other side"? Wrong. How about "The concrete is a little less cracked on the other end of that dank, pollution-spewing industrial complex"? And "It's always darkest just before the dawn"? Harvey Dent said that in The Dark Knight. What happened? He got half of his face burned off! I'm sure he saw the glass half-full after that.
Thirdly, one can simply insert an i right after the a, and it could still work. Teaim. Oh yes, I did just do that. And I will henceforth spell teaim like that. Teaim. How do you like them apples?
Fourthly, I've been working this blog on my own for quite some time now. I was the teaim, punks. There was no other I. Wait. What?
Anyway, I say was because I am proud to welcome Joshua Thomas Smith to the Bedlam Crew (trademark pending). He is an astute writer of enormous talent and creativity; I'm sure you all will enjoy the many thoughts he will bring to the blog.
. . . Did I mention he's my brother? No? Well, he is. I guess I'm a nepotist.
Thanks for reading.
