The vision that’s been an astonishing 24 years in the making has finally reached cyberspace. That’s right, folks, the brand spanking new Jeff-Fischer.Net has, at long last, opened its doors for business. What kind of “business,” you ask? Well, I’ll tell you: I’m selling handbags made by the local senior citizens center to benefit charity!
Ok, not really. As I’m sure my loyal readers know by now, this site is devoted to all things Fischer, as well as some of the things the Fischdawg happens to think you might find interesting. You didn’t mishear me; Fischdawg now refer to himself in the 3rd person. Fischdawg’s NBA contract can’t be far away now! Awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww yeeeeeeh! Fischdawg apologizes for this outburst, but come on, you can’t keep a good dawg down, sucka!
I’ll make a solemn vow–here and now–to update this site each and every Sunday night. A bold move, to be sure, I think I’ve got the site designed so that I can easily update individual pieces without too much effort or difficulty. That obviously makes it a lot easier to update the site more often, as I don’t have to get bogged down by having to figure out where to put the newest animated gif of a chimp washing a cat or making a bombing run in a biplane. So, this I promise: each and every Sunday night, there will be an update. It may be a small one (the aformentioned chimp gif), it may be a large one (a new site log entry, perhaps). Beat that, atomine!
I’ve tried to make the new site as seamless as possible; clicking on one of the main links will launch each section you’ve all grown accustomed to (About the Author, Links, Resume, Image Gallery, etc.). There are a couple of new links I’ve added as well for brand new sections to the site, so be sure to check those out as well. Of particular note is the site message board, the Pearl Jam site, and the archives, which contain content from the past incarnations of Fischer.Net..
The Site Log will be updated, hopefully, on a much more regular basis and will consist of my latest thoughts on life, love, and the pursuit of dogs on minibikes. On the left, in the “Site Log Entries” area, you’ll find links to all of the previous ramblings, arranged chronologically in reverse. The Featured Links section will point to some of the sites I’ve been frequenting as of late (except for furnitureporn.com–I won’t be so bold as to admit my going there often….shit). Undoubtedly, you’ll all be looking for some porn but alas, no links to porn will be “featured.”
You’ll also find a “Now Playing” over on the right, which will feature what I’m listening to, watching, reading, and playing. The items will be linked up to either a review authored by myself, or a link to the author’s official site or review. It’s a work in progress, but I dig it. For each section of the site (site log, author, calendar, etc.) you’ll find a list of related section links on the left, just above the "Now Playing" section. This should aid in ease of navigation for each section of the site.
As I mentioned, you’ll be able to find all of the content from the old site(s) here, it’s just going to take me some time to get it all properly formatted, etc. Give me some time; it’s taken long enough to throw this piece of crap up. I’ve got about eighty folders with an assload of pictures, which I have no idea how I’m going to sort properly so this site doesn’t look like it was made by chimps….holy shit, I just thought of the best idea ever.
What about Bob?
Site updates aside, I’ll have some updates regarding yours truly next time around. I’m sure you’re all waiting with bated breath to see what I’ve been up to. I promise you won’t be disappointed. From the neverending job search, to some great (and not so great) get-togethers with friends from high school and college alike, I’ve got a lot to get caught up on.
I’ll be back shortly with some more. Stay tuned, faithful readers (Ross and, uh…JayMan).
