Well since my first attempt was eaten it's time to start over:
Welcome to The Funhouse Journal, name taken from my mid-80s print zine. I'd toyed with cutesy names like Awash in Media and ponderous ones like The Culture Journal but this seems to fit better. Very little autobiography but more information/thoughts on whatever books, films, music, etc floats my way. I'd tried a weekly email newsletter a few years ago that only lasted a few months. We'll see if this outlasts that one.
Since this first post is mostly a trial I'll start with the real stuff tomorrow.
