A Representative Post

This picture pretty much represents this blog. There are at least four or five things about Faulkner in this picture that I love.

1. Tweed
2. Pipe
3. Mustache
4. Writing (implicit)
5. Reading (implicit)
6. Understated coolness (very explicit)

Ok so six. I'll hopefully be writing about all these things.


First Post

Well, I figured since this blog has been up for who knows how long without so much as an attempt at a post, now might not be a bad time to start (I did receive some prodding from longwing, which is appreciated).

I suppose I should explain the title. I am recently 21 years old, but I do/have many things that would classify me as an "old man" today (as my wife constantly reminds me). So when I originally conceived of this blog, it would consist of different posts that make me either an old man or a young man. However, I'll probably get bored of this soon and make posts that have nothing to do with the old/young man concept.

So anyways, I hope you enjoy, and if you don't, in the words of JP Donleavy: "Sir, upon my monocle I regard that as monstrous twaddle, rot, bosh and figs."
