I is for Ingenuity

is for ingenuity.  I am sitting here right now watching an old episode of The Simpsons that is done in the style of the Behind the Music series that used to be on MTV or VH1 or whatever, and I am thinking to myself "That's fucking ingenious."
     I always have an appreciation when someone is able to do what they do in a new and different way, which is something that I try to do on these pages whenever I get a chance to.  That is why you are constantly confronted with lists and the occasional open letter or yearly alphabetic post event.  I just don't want you to get bored with the same old dribble that you always get and leave me for another blog.  So I try to keep it interesting, and that is all you can ask for, right?  I hope so.
    The problem is that you can't really manufacture ingenuity, you just sort of have to grab it as it floats on by as if it were a branch and you were in the river without a life jacket.  So that is why you have to deal with so much bullshit here too, because sometimes you just shoot and miss the mark.  That is the price you pay in the search for ingenuity.
