Welcome to mgk

mgk:Machine Gun Keyboard is so named because a journalism prof I once had lefthandedly praised my newswriting by saying that “…if the pen is mightier than the sword, your keyboard is like a machine gun.” Of course, Jim then went on to tell me I was too wordy and used alliterations a bit more than he liked, but I keep his praises quietly in my ‘vest pocket’ whenever I write. Thanks, Dr. Jim.

I’m still gunning, 25 years on.

The official ‘first post’ for mgk is coming soon. Bear with me- I’m only now learning WordPress.

Thanks for following me over from “S’truth? STREWTH! – dangerous ideas from a working brain.” SS-DIFAWB will remain online as an archive, as long as Blogger doesn’t mind it being there.

Time to lock & load.

Great looking site, Weez. I’ll be ducked behind this Boulder while you fire through the first couple clips….

Cracking name comrade. Bring on the Stoush™!

Michael, thanks! Jon Fox of 12th Harmonic is responsible for the whole shebang, save the red logo.

The ‘mgk’ was done in Photoshop 7- it’s the old standard ‘Impact’ font, free transformed to ~50% height and ~250% width and the kerning pulled in tight.

Liam, I’ve been waiting for an excuse to apply the mg/k citation for years.

Unfortunately, Liam, I’m not going to be able to stalk The Stoush™ as thoroughly as you have; I’ve just taken on something of a daunting PR gig. More on that later.

Matter of fact, if I do it right, it won’t be obvious I’ve actually done anything… so maybe not more on that later…

Hi Weez, what a spiffy new blog!

Thanks, Zoe! If you want one like this, ask Jon.

Suggest you call it something different, tho. đŸ˜‰
