I've decided to start a blog. I don't need a justification, so don't expect one. In fact, considering the random stream of drivel, puns and outrageous slurs heading your way, don't expect an apology either.
You'll be pleased to know I devoted a little over 5 minutes to the tricky subject of choosing a name. I was surprised it hadn't already been taken (thinks: perhaps it really is naff). As I am an Arsenal fan, and as I like what no one these days calls popular music, I thought I'd combine the two. Actually, while I do like Elbow, I'm more of a Sonic Youth kinda guy, so I did toy with Arsonic, but then I spolit it by trying to cram something about old lace in as well. This made me think of Paper Lace, at which point I saw the error of my ways.
If you want the truth, I was inspired by Dr. Dilligaff. I'm particularly impressed by the otherwise exiguous nature of his site (less is the new more), and the excellent proof that the best things on the Web do not require DHTML. I haven't had such fun "viewing source" for a long time.
