Welcome to TheByteDaily (Reprise)

Date: May 18, 2011

I can’t seem to come up with an idea, and I mean that, obviously, in the blog sense of things. Seriously people who read my blog, for some reason, over the past what? Week or so since the Blood Brother analysis? I haven’t been able to come up with ANY good material for this thing. Oh wait, hold on, Saturday right? See! I can’t even ADD properly anymore, well I mean I CAN just not right away and that is DEFINITELY not because of my age!

So here’s the thing, I spent a lot of time trying to figure out what to write about, and people have been throwing ideas at me from here and there; like a Thor review. I liked the movie folks, it had Thor falling in love with Natalie Portman and learning the error of his ways…not a LOT of subtext there now is there? And it didn’t do enough things wrong to actually bother me, so I don’t really see the need to rant about it. Which brought me to an interesting point, do I do this for the readership or do I do it for myself? Well the answer’s really simple, I do this for myself, meaning I’m not EXACTLY in a position where I NEED to please other people (more than my nature dictates of course).

You DO know what that means, right? It means that I’m selfish enough to WANT people to read the blog, but certainly not UNSELFISH enough that I won’t let go of my desires and try ENTIRELY to please them. But I digress, the original point was my lack of ideas. So after completely crushing the possibility of ANOTHER Thor review that says the EXACT same thing (Natalie Portam-Thor relationship WTF? OMG EXPLOSIONS!!! OMG ODIN!!! ZOMG DESTUCTOR SCENE!!!) I thought about writing a breakdown of Mike Posner’s Bow Chicka Wow Wow. I’d like to say this now, I am IN LOVE with this song for some VERY odd reason. I think it’s also why I’m such a fan of R. Kelly’s Bump N’Grind; it’s a rather straightforward song that is NOT trying to hide what it wants to do; to bump and grind and bow chicka wow wow respectively.

Then the song idea got me thinking even further, what’s the point of this blog? I already established that the blog is for me and not anyone else, so what is the exact PURPOSE of the blog? I suppose to those who are reading, and for those who HAVE been reading since the beginning (about 3 people) it seems like I’m just another byproduct of the internet times; I use the internet to provide my opinion on A LOT of stuff, trying my best to avoid topics that illicit MAJOR outrage (Libya, Charlie Sheen, and the recent news regarding America are ALL examples of topics that illicit MAJOR outrage). But what IS the purpose of the blog really? Well, in all honesty, this blog is a side project that is slowly becoming a rather major and extremely interesting endeavor (don’t get me wrong folks, I am NOT quitting the blog, this isn’t the end of a rather unknown [well clearly not entirely unknown] internet venture).

The TRUE purpose of TheByteDaily, which went SEVERAL name changes during the first few days, is to be a place where I could pretty much talk about what “bytes.” To those of you who don’t know, and it’s a colloquial thing so don’t be ashamed, if something “bites” it has a negative connotation for those involved. For example, hmm OH! Getting hurt bites, OH! Better example! The Phantom Menace bites. And you know what really bothers me about the whole “bite” thing? It’s all in the present sense. It’s not like “sucks” which can be used in the past, present AND future tense. Something DOES bite or it WILL bite, the Phantom Menace BITES, it didn’t BIT, and I seriously don’t know why that is!

I digress once more however, this blog is about stuff that “bytes.” Well, that was actually the MAIN reason, but I decided to use the twitter feed for that, so the main blog is pretty much for well, whatever! So I suppose I DID get one idea for the blog. Just not an idea that can be seen in this post. I’ve decided that the main blog WILL be used for whatever, whether it be a rant, psychological evaluation, or a breakdown of Mike Posner’s Bow Chicka Wow Wow (seriously people, AWESOME song), so I suppose what I’m saying (Iron Man 2 was an awesome movie by the way, JUST SAYING), if I’m saying anything at all is welcome back! To TheByteDaily! Because starting today, things are going to CHANGE around here, well not really, but still, I think I’ve figured out a way to bring a rather sense of balance to it all.

As always, this has been your Admin, and DO remember! Always look on the BYTE side of life!
