The everything about nothing:
The site is about photos, history, and a bizarre collection of curiosities related to London. Its not particularly focused on any one London theme although you’ll find quite a bit of historical research within these pages. There’ll also be some posts on police misconduct from my other blog.
Why was it called 1st to start with before becoming 1:L? Its definitely not the first blog is it? Not! Its just a name. It could be anything, London Gutter Blog Press, 41st Century London Blog, Sherlock pens from 221B, or A Good Ol’ piss up against the Elizabeth Tower.
But its most definitely not ‘first’. One on its own means nothing when compared to say 100 or 1000. When I took on 1LondonBlog as a domain name I thought maybe people will criticise it for having ‘1’ (denoting 1st if you like) in the title. What you see here is my complete refutation of ‘1st.’
It is just a name and in fact there’s no real essence to a name, so ‘1st’ could be last, perhaps somewhere in the middle, at the beginning, well before the beginning (such as the force fields that existed before the big bang), in a queue, or not in a queue, or not anywhere at all. In my view its just a blog that exists at some level or another where-ever this happens to be. For heaven’s sake I can’t even locate my blog properly within the universe itself!
In a nutshell the name’s just a descriptive function that locates the blog within the vast matrix called the Internet.
In October 2016 it was changed from 1st to 1:L. Its more of an ambiguous certainty and one I prefer since it places the blog even less in any hierarchical queue or structure that may exist.
Naturally when one considers humanity’s minuscule presence in the vastness of the universe, entropy is a strong presence, being the first natural principle that makes every human endeavour the last ever to happen – so I assume my blog is just one of millions travelling along the road to nowhere 🙂
The ‘1st’ name came up when I was fishing for possible new titles by doing a search on the Internet. I wanted ‘LondonBlog’ or something of that order, and not a long name either. Sadly that had gone but a domain search engine suggested 1LondonBlog and I thought thats the one! I’m poor at names and describing things and I didn’t want to faff about 🙂
So to start with it was 1stLondonBlog and now its 1:LondonBlog. No confusion is intended and the changes are here to help – at a super-quantum level – humanity’s progress on its consistent, and rather efficient, road-trip towards a vast row of zeroes 🙂
And here it is! My blog – pure exquisite nothingness procured for a universe that’s very much ado about nothing !
The true concrete proof of my inabilities:
I have two substantial UK tourist/history websites – successful in name but nothing more. In other words there’s not a single penny I earn from these although ironically they help others to keep jobs, generate publicity etc. You probably dont realise the bias, hate and rejection that arises when people find out its a crip behind the controls, which is why I regularly operate incognito and just getting on with it. At least I’m helping someone somewhere even if its not myself.
I have written a number of articles for various magazines and photography for local London newspapers. These didnt take very kindly to me however. Its the misunderstandings you see. Its a bit like a certain guy named Higman who once led a top green organisation called FOE, this esteemed CEO suddenly opted for a preference to get rid of me after I’d only been in my new job for just a single hour. I hope to be writing about this guy in a new post entitled Not very nice Londoners.
I am somehow managing to complete a successful orbit of the Sun each annum. That’s the only one real achievement I can claim in my life 🙂
I suppose that’s all the important stuff said. Not actually much was it?
Hope you enjoy my blog. Its meant to bore you into total stupor. If you cant achieve this amazing state of consciousness, well there’s plenty of other blogs out there to chose from – some very desperate for your attention and bound to give you knee jerk! But dont forget you’re just their click-bait! 🙂
Very Important Note:
I’m an autistic person who is deafened, non-verbal & acts, even walks rather clumsily (as some will attest.) Well there’s nothing exciting about that for anybody – unless there’s some prejudice or aspiration to discriminate and which is quite excitedly practised by a few humans including hugely ignorant uniformed law officials because they have no understanding of disability.
