This blog was born on 6 July 2006, and I’ve made 239 posts in the intervening 10 years, 11 months, 18 days. One day I shall plot that as a chart so we can see where the hotspots and not-spots are. A bit like this. Only better, and automated.
As a Fellow and Chartered Practitioner of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations, I ought to let you know that I am a Fellow and Chartered Practitioner of the Chartered Institute of Public Relations. Which I think I just have. Cilip probably requires me to do something similar.
And I’m on the UK Lobbying Register, because some of the work I’ve done (and hope to do again in the future) could be construed as attempting to influence Government policy, directly or indirectly.
I much prefer “The Disclaimer” from Ixnay on the Hombre, an album by The Offspring1, but there you go.
I write in a personal capacity, not to order and never in exchange for cash or gifts – unless clearly stated otherwise. It hasn’t happened yet.
This site’s theme is an amalgam of two old-ish themes from Automattic. The menu and screen sizes are from Sorbet, while most of the colours come from Fictive. Both use icons to show different post formats, which I’ve squared off and moved to the side. With some research I’ve been able to rewrite the Latest Posts widget to show only posts, and adapted code to show recent tags and do a few other housekeeping tasks too. If I could work out how to replace the Genericons font with their SVG equivalents, my Google PageSpeed performance grade would be in the 90s somewhere. Eighty-six doesn’t cut it with me.
- Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the disclaimer. That’s right, the disclaimer!
This American apple-pie institution known as parental discretion will cleanse any sense of innuendo or sarcasm from the lyrics that might actually make you think, and will also insult your intelligence at the same time
So, protect your family!
This album contains explicit depictions of things which are real. These real things are commonly known as life. So, if it sounds sarcastic, don’t take it seriously. If it sounds dangerous, do not try this at home or at all.
And if it offends you, just don’t listen to it. [↩]
