The Dog Days of Summer?/Early Fall?

It is hot.  It’s rather obvious but it’s still hot out.

Here in Japan, most stores switch into autumn gear almost as soon as the clock hits 12 AM on September First despite the fact the weather often fails to make the same sudden transition to cool nights and fair days.  Really, the only difference here between the “late summer” (August) and the “early autumn” (September) is all the typhoons that conveniently decided to strike the Japanese mainland this month rather than the last.  What the hell’s up with that?  (That’s a rhetorical question, you humorless meteorologist.  I don’t need an actual explanation regarding high and low pressure systems.)

New(ish) Beginnings

 

Old, torn slacks, new web address

Old, torn slacks, new web address

Hey there and welcome to the first post of the post-new domain name era of my crappy blog/website.  In case you didn’t notice or were otherwise unaware, incrediblylongblogtitle.wordpress.com is no more.  In its place is the much more streamlined, sexy, and exciting stephentetsu.com.  Welcome.

Is it a little conceited of me to name my website after myself?  Of course.

Is it a better potential representation of me and my person brand (don’t laugh)? Yes.

Does it cost me a bit of money?  Yup.

Is it going to go on my business cards?  Yessir-ee.

So what’s going to change now that I’m paying for a website that literally has my name on it?  Not a whole lot.  I’m still the social miscreant that I’ve always been and I’m still the lazy bastard that started this blog.  In other words, expect posts to be as infrequent and as consistently underwhelming as they’ve been from the start.  After all, I’m an adult.

Anyways, feel free to gossip about me and my inability to not spend my money on stupid things like websites or just pass my stuff along to your friends.  Or just ignore me.  Yeah, that’s probably the best option.
