The year of living angerously

I just posted the final edition of “A Thousand Things That Piss Me Off” on Shplang. It’s the end of a list that I started compiling in the spring of last year, and to tell you the truth, I wasn’t a hundred percent sure I’d actually finish it. But now I have, and I invite you to check it out.

If you’ve followed the list at any point in the past year, I’d really like to thank you for reading. Keeping a list like this is a lot of fun, and it’s certainly cathartic, but one of most surprising and enjoyable things about it has been the feedback I’ve gotten. I’ve been corrected, chastised, and dragged into lengthy debates about some of the blandest points on this list. It’s really amazing what people get worked up about in this day and age – and in the end, maybe that was the point of this list all along. I mean, it probably wasn’t, but it’s as good an interpretation of a pointless, self-indulgent list as any.

Either way, it’s done. I hope you liked it. Aside from the possibility of moving it over to a new website of its own, I’m not going to touch it from this point forward. I’m sure I’ll still get mad about serious issues and trivial bullshit alike, but I guess I’ll have to find another way to deal with it all from now on.
