As you all know, I have given up on my daily posts here at the Daily Hottentots. I am no longer able to keep up a regular daily posting habit. I work evenings now and reserve most mornings and afternoons for the causes I am involved in. (I am an activist first, blogger second.)
Random screen capture of Connie Veidt in The Beloved Rogue…right before he goes the hell off on his little effeminate barber for cutting his throat.
I love blogging and sharing information with others, so I am not willing to give it up all together. I have the Silent Star Saturday project in the works. I plan on launching that in the early part of next year…maybe in time for Conrad Veidt’s birthday on 22 January. If so, my first post will be about him. 😛 (Any excuse for Connie crack….) I might not be able to get it up that quick, though. It all depends on what my $$ looks like as this will be a self-hosted blog and I have to put out a wee expense for it.
What is available now is my new weekly blog Favorite Quote Friday, based on the weekly series on this blog of the same name. So if you liked the posts in that series, I invite you to drop by the new blog and leave your two cents.
The first post You Can Help Eradicate a Deadly Disease Called Puritanism features a quote from journalist and critic H. L. Mencken. Follow the hyperlink there.
Additionally, you can join the Facebook page for updates and links, or follow my good ol’ Twitter account.
Bear in mind that Favorite Quote Friday is a brand new blog and there are still a lot of tweaks I need to make. I hope to see you all there!

We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.
Who or what in your life are you taking for granted? This is something that we humans often do—whether we want to admit it or not.
Usually it is a parent, or a sibling, or maybe a grandparent. The people we take advantage of are related to us in one way or another, and we expect them to do things for us, or simply “be there”, just because….
What happens when that person is no longer around to help us out? They leave town or they leave this life, and the only thing we really have to cling to are memories of how they selflessly gave their time and energy to us. What did you give them in return? Can you reflect on this and honestly say that you give as much as you get from your loved ones? I know I can’t, and I regret it. (more…)
