Welcome to my new blog. Baxter Sez is being retired. It’s a site that’s still going to have all our popular former posts—like "Hairy-legged feminist, "Reasons why feminism is a good prerequisite for having a child with Down syndrome," and of course the series of blog posts around Biffle’s MFA thesis and Alison’s brain tumor. You can visit, but the new stuff will all be here.
Let me give a public thanks to all my friends who helped to dream up titles for this blog. Options included “Warm tap water,” “Up with Pieple,” “AMP it up” (my middle initial is M), and “Rock On, Big A.” I received a few complaints from blog-title-composers that perhaps I was being a bit too picky--but a blog title is very important to me! So a special thanks goes to Kenneth Burns, who offered up “Every little thing.” Given that this blog is a space where I’ll be sharing whatever random crap it is that I want to share, this title seemed perfect (and refers to songs by the Beatles and the Police).
I'm not finished with all the set up I'll be doing--this is a work in progress.
