the blog manifesto.

the purpose of sme is simply this: to overthrow the capitalist hegemony that has a stranglehold on our beautiful, multiethnic society. contributors are asked to take part in this, our overriding mission, so the people of the green earth can breathe together in the clean air of progressive politics and non-judgmentalism. each blog post must bask in the sunlight of earnest expression, never falling into the trap of satire or parody. our aim is clarity and verisimilitude; our mission is truth and the propagation of it. the blog is the perfect place to post your old family videos, homophobic video blogs, another blog's material, awkward, poorly-drawn sketches, halo reach updates, or unexplained/irrelevant wikipedia articles--sme is home to the entire eclectic conflation that is the internet. if there is one thing entirely intolerable to the editors of sme, it is sarcasm. there is simply no room in this blog for sarcastic, humorous, and reference driven posts. if you are among those responsible for such garbage, please leave.

Accretion of the mildly interested

St. Louis mixed genre shows are a perfect place to observe this phenomenon.

the beginning of the show. everyone is scattered about in conversation clumps behind the camera.

 F = G\,\frac{m_1 m_2}{r^2} \, ,
music is heard and the patrons drift (pulled by the stage mass+music mass) slowly to seats forming stage 1 of the accretion disk.

mild interest has overcome the force of boredom here. one conversation clump has reached the roche limit, and split up. this is how all concert rings begin.

over time, more and more mass is accumulated in the disk.

the final stage of formation

here we see the mixed genre show ring in all its beauty.
the stage is directly off camera to the right.
notice how uncomfortable everyone looks.

this is why.
