Alright, for the few poor souls who checked up on this blog fairly often in its early stages hoping for its success, you have thus far been greeted with no new content for over 1.25 years. My associate and I have a draft or two of planned posts from during that extended hiatus, but nothing has actually been released. In fact, a post I had planned on publishing concerning the current threat (or lack thereof) analysis of Iran and North Korea is more or less obsolete given the most recent developments (the Rodman Summit, the nuclear test, and the “repeal” of the 1953 ceasefire with the South). Needless to say, the life of the blog went not too far off from my most realistic expectations from the night I created the blog (in the stupid-o’clock early hours of a Friday after rampaging through a 2 hour-long take-home poli-sci final).
Well folks, I am here to announce the official return of the Schwarmenius & Friends blog! Sometime within the next two weeks, I will release the first regular post of our revival (gonna need some time to figure out material and whatnot). As a teaser, some of the ideas I’m tossing about mi cabeza include, but are not limited to:
-Firearms & military history
-Music recommendations & very shallow reviews (never claimed to be a professional)
-Political analysis & theory, likely focusing on topics such as firearms, national security, civil liberties, etc.
-TEASER: First planned post in this category covers my theory of “Paveway Diplomacy”
-MAYBE some wading into the shores of philosophical thinking
-Video gaming thoughts, reviews, analysis, etc.
-Some (likely sporadic) posts on various parts of popular culture (e.g.: TV, movies, stand-up comedy, entertainers, etc.)
-And perhaps even a post or two on “good” eating
-DISCLAIMER: In this context, the specific meaning of “good” can be subjective
This is just a couple of general categories I’m mulling about right now – some of those listed may not make it, some that I haven’t even thought of as of yet may make the final cut. In short though, I wanted to thank our (likely very few) readers for their past viewership, and hope I can add at least a handful more to those ranks in the coming weeks, months, and years. I strongly encourage you to participate in this blog if you feel the urge – comments, questions, debates, anything that livens up the place.
As a last order of business, I also wanted to state that as of now, we have only two content writers/contributors – myself, and the honorable Mr. Shane. If you think you’d like to contribute to creating content for this little slice of bandwidth (and can respect my ownership and, ultimately, supreme rule over the running of the blog), feel free to contact me here on on my Facebook page. Whatever you feel like adding to this site, no matter how large or small, I’ll be happy to discuss things with you!
With that said, I again thank our previous readers/friends/family/passers-by for their patronage, and eagerly look forward to the future of this Not-So-Grand American Experiment!
