Scratching Post

As alluded to in the last update, there has been another change. Mouse Punk became the Compendium of Scratch. I took a flailing music blog and repurposed it with a renewed purpose of not having a purpose. It’s simply a place for me to write random things at random times. Maybe some of it will be of interest to you.


Renewing the ruin

To be honest, even I was afraid to come around here too often. Slapped in the face with the realization that the kingdom had crumpled into a pile of ruins, I would merely survey the damage and abandon it again. “Rethinking the purpose of this site” led to blank thoughts which led to the same old Christmas-themed post sitting on top of this page for so long it was bound to turn timely again.
I did not want to abandon this place, but I no longer wanted to use it in the way I intended to use it five years ago.

The new version of Crumpled Kingdom looks a lot like the old version except all of the posts which used to be on the Home page are no longer here. Some of them migrated over to Crumpled Sites because, let’s face it, this place was turning into a gravesite too. All of the song lyrics which had been posted here are still here, but now on the brand new and appropriately titled Lyrics page. The remaining posts have been moved offline for some reason or another.
The new Home page is now more of a what’s new and other announcements page. So if, for example, new music is posted on my Bandcamp page or if another journal is gracious enough to publish a poem or story of mine, expect to see that loudly posted here* rather than just quietly updated on the Music or Other Places pages. There may be one more addition soonish, maybe, but that will be mentioned here if it happens.

*Adding more lyrics to the Lyrics page, however, probably won’t warrant an update here.


New pages have been added since you may have last bothered to stop by. Feel free to explore. More changes are in store for here as soon as I figure out what they are.

Crumpling Back

A link has been added to the sidebar. The site is a sidecar occupied with the corpse of something I just couldn’t bury yet. So I ride the highway saddled with the weight of the past.

Crumpled Sites is a collected selection of some writing I did for other blogs which were abandoned before I started this site. Maybe it’s a sign of things to come, but for now it’s only a hyperlink to the past.

And again…

New site, first post. A tabla rasa ready to be sullied with the ugliness of flawed execution.

Hack away, my friend…
