Sinopathic: We Hardly Knew Thee…

Curdle Cutter: we salute you

Hey folks, just wanted to send a personal note explaining the lack of Sinopathic posts lately.

The obvious reason is that I’ve recently taken on new responsibilities that will prevent me from making blog posts on a regular basis. The previous “standard” of publishing five blogs a week will no longer be enforceable, so you’ll be seeing a lot less of terroir with your morning coffee, and so there will also be presumably less coffee to spit out at the screen.

I would hope to presume this to not be the end; I still have a lot of snark still left in me that can only be excised through publishing. I certainly hope to keep writing, but time restrictions will limit as to what I will be able to do. Instead of publishing on each weekday, it will now likely be the opposite in which I publish only on the weekends. Instead of long translation pieces, it will now likely be opinion pieces and reaction pieces.

I truly love Sinopathic – doing this blog has been a great experience for me. I’ve learned a lot, and I’ve enjoyed doing it. Though it will continue in some shape and form, it won’t be what it was before; this is because “terroir” is me, and it may come to pass that this identity may even come out one day.

“terroir” has been a very good alter ego for me; “terroir” can do and say the things that I can’t. Along the same lines, Sinopathic has been a good blog for me this past year.

As this is the internet: there are no good-byes, just less F5′s and the short-term memory takes care of the rest…

    Keep up the good work Terrior. The web would be a poorer place without you.

      Thanks, dude. I do want to keep on snarking, it will just not be as regular as before.

      The great part about this all is that I can drop all pretense at being a “news” blog and just offer 100% opinion …. and 47% sarcasm.

      It adds up, in the end.

    Yeah, keep it up. Regarding the picture above the post and you mentioning “instead of 5 posts a week”, I guess the reason for your limited presence is: “5 girls a week”.

      I don’t know if this is good-bye, but I thought, “What’s the last pic that I ever want to have Sinopathic known by?”

      That video was soooo close to becoming viral. Sigh. All we have left are our memories of memories.,

      Thanks for the encouragement. I haven’t see you in a while, but it’s awesome that you still have an avatar with the bird prominently displayed.

    R.I.P ‘Terrior’, you will be missed.

    Success with the new responsilities. I still welcome your ‘sarcasm’ to help me make some sense of the China that still manages to surprise me. All the best.

      My responsibilities have changed. Maybe you’ll enjoy my “sarcasm” in a different capacity, in a different place.

      Thanks dude.

  • Guest23

    Good luck, thanks for the posts.

    • terroir

      Thank you. And yet, I never figured out the origin story of your name. Superpowers are probably involved.

      • Guest23

        Ask and ye shall receive + Guest = silly name, good luck and thanks again for the wonderful blog.

        • terroir

          I should have guest. That book remains my all-time favorite book that I never finished. Yossarian is that great character that I never want to meet in real life.

          I really didn’t mean for this post to mean that I’m never writing on this blog again, just that I will never again be able to write as often as I once did. Maybe I was being sly, but I didn’t say it’s because I’m writing somewhere else.

          Anyways, I’ll try to write up something this half-weekend. Yup, it’s snark week on the Diss-Covery Channel.
